Day 100 - Wishing You Happiness (last cards of the year)

Hi friends,

It's good to meet you again. 

My commitment for "A Card A Day" seemed not be fulfilled. Up to today, I was only able to make 100 styles of cards. This means today is the 100th day in that commitment. 

This set of cards is a birthday card style. My sista ordered 50 cards. She wanted to give (again) each colleague a birthday card in 2013. Actually, this style is so simple. It didn't take so much time. I made them only in a day and a half. 10 cards for each color.

These are the cards.

There's not much to say. I must make another commitment for 2013 to make not only cards but also more creations. I also hope that all of you have time -plenty or little- to create something every day (if possible) and use all the tools, stuffs and everything we possess in our own craft room/table. Enjoy more in 2013, friends.

Have a pleasant time in welcoming the year 2013.

See you again, my friends.. Love you all.

Day 97 - Just A Little Christmas Note

Hi friends,

It's good to make Christmas cards again. I managed to make fifteen cards. Five kinds and 3 each. Someone ordered these to be sent to her friends in Japan. This is the third set. The styles for the first and the second ones are the ones I made in the past.

The pattern is the same as this one. I changed the image with christmassy Tilda. I love this image. I still enjoy coloring in simple way. Also for the embellishments, I don't really like putting so many embellishments. Still love the simple ones.. ;D

Sources: Magnolia stamp; MD poinsettia dies, CP1 snowflake punch; Spellbinder Label 8; MS border punch; Copic sketch markers

This is the set. I made three cards with the same design but different colors. I colored the image with Copic, then I tried to find the similar card stock color.

Hope you enjoy my cards.. Happy weekend, friends..


Day 96 - DT ATC - Every Snowflake Has A Story

Hello friends,

It's been a fortnight since my last post. Wow! Time flew so fast. Teaching crafts at 2 schools seem occupying my time. Time for preparation, time for going to the schools, time for teaching. All out. My chance was to make ATC for this challenge.

For the next fortnight, the challenge in ATCs With Attitude is about  Winter Wonderland. I used this cute image for this challenge.

As usual, I love doing paper piecing. Take a look on the picture below.

Go to the blog: ATCs With Attitude and find the DT's creations. Join the challenge to grab the images.

Happy winter wonderland... I hope I will see the snow (personally) next month.. ;D

Have fun.. Bye now...


Day 95 DT ATC - Kingfisher - Blessings

 Hello friends,

It's another Friday. Time for ATC Challenge in ATCs & Cards With Attitude. The theme is: Autumn/Winter. I used the image from Delicious Doodles - Kingfisher in The Rushes.

Here is my ATC:
Sources: Delicious Doodles digital image; pp Vanilla Sunshine from s.e.i.; MFT sentiment; Copic markers; SU! label punch; Creative Memories Oval cutting set

This is the closer look on the image:

I used my very old tool to cut the oval. It is from Creative Memories. I bought the set when I was in a Quilt Exhibition in Houston in the year 2000. Die cut from outstanding brands seem to replace this cutting set. However, the company is still there and this small oval from CM is the best one to cut this small. Look at the picture below.

The oval is the template. We can use the inner and the outer side. For this ATC, I used the inner side. The blue is the blade. You know, CM is, I think, a MLM company. When I bought it, they offered to send it to my place. I think, I was talking to the demonstrator of CM in my area in Houston. 
Well, I will use this tool often, as I don't have oval die cuts.. 

Ok, then. I feel good to be back on track to make the cards. Don't hesitate to join the challenge, and visit the blog, to see all the DTs' works. Have fun, my friends.

Well, I, actually am not fond of the image like the house bird, and everything with the ghost. I always avoid such images. However, I colored it with the brown copic.The pumpkins, well, perhaps the colors are not supposed that way. Hehe.. We don't have such halloween pumpkins here. Just assumed the colors.

Day 90 - Traveling Away

Hello friends,

This is the card for today.

 Sources: p.p, from Wayfarer Bazzil Basics Paper; font from computer

I adopted the style from the magazine Paper Crafts, Sept/Oct 2012 edition. It was the card made by Alyssa Scritchfield.  I love all the creations in Maptastic! section. Especially because I know I will be traveling more and more. The creations really inspire me to make more photo albums using such pattern papers. I also want to try to make that flower card using map pattern paper. Looks so gorgeous! (later..)

These are the closer look.

See you again...

Photo Album for Ethan

Hello friends, 

I made this photo album for a friend of mine, Hanny. She is an online seller in facebook. I happen to enjoy everything she sells. Hehehe. She just delivered a  baby boy. So I decided to make this album for her. This is for the first year of her baby. I didn't embellish much, because I know Hanny can do much better.

This is the cover of the album:

I used these papers inside:

Lovely papers. Hope Hanny likes this album.

Day 88 - Lavender in Pink

Hello friends,

My Mom asked me to make a card for her friend's birthday. She is 88 years today. She is actually the teacher of my Mom, and then later became colleagues. I made this card for her, quite big, so that everyone can sign and say something inside.

Sources: Hero Arts Lavender stamp, CB embossing folder, Zig markers.

I used my fave technic, coloring the stamp. This time I didn't spray with water. Just stamped it on the white card stock. I also made an envelope and stamped again a part of the flower. 

This is the closer look on the flowers:

 Hope everyone is pleased signing the card and Mrs. Yo is happy with the card. 

Happy birthday, Ompung...

Day 86 - A Hello Card & My Profile in Newspaper

Hello friends,

Been so busy with all the orders from the gift shop. I couldn't manage my time to make a single card for this. I made many cards, but they are for that store. Later, when they are on display, I will post them.

This late afternoon, I managed to make one card. I used the borders given by a friend who sponsored the challenge in my FB account. This is the card I made.

Sources: Tilda With Hawaiian Flower stamp, Hero Arts sentiment stamp, Copic markers.

By the way, I want to tell you, too, that my profile was published in a local newspaper, Radar Cirebon, last Tuesday, September 11, 2012. So happy for that. That's one thing that I'm longing, too. ;D
Just click each picture, to read...

Thanks for viewing my card and read the article about me and my happy world, crafting world.. I have to go back to work on the project for that gift shop.See you again, friends.
