Tags for friends

I'm back again.

Last Tuesday, I met friends of mine in Jakarta. They are friends of creating cards, crafts, etc. This time, we were fifteen!!! Wow!! So many new friends. We met at Facebook. We did some card making. I myself learned hybrid scrapbooking. It's a wonderful new knowledge for me. At the end of the mini (..or maxi?) meet, I gave each of them some goodies and a tag. Here are my tags.

I used some punches to create everything on the tags. The background was stamped with 'bark' stamp from Hero Arts. The sentiment was the one I really adore from Hero Arts, as well.

Just Saying Hello

Hi friends,

Wow... how long did I miss posting here? I miss you and your comments so much. This is the card I made just now. I used my new die cut, a bird cage. It seems to me that anything goes with a cage is a vintage look. Well, not that easy to make a vintage look. So, I decided to make a monochrome card with a hint on the bird itself.

This is my card.

To embellish the cage, I used punch outs: leaves, gave distress ink. The flowers were stamped and cut. I added the bling-bling and some stickles to make it a bit shiny. I know, it doesn't turn that good.Or, I was not good enough to take the picture. ;D
