I can't stop using turquoise paper. Because they are still lying on my craft table. I made this one using (again) the Hero Arts Dandelion stamp. I love the dots on the paper. I heat embossed it. The musci background is also from Hero Arts. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. They are all old stamps.
Well, now, I don't feel guilty having so many new stamps. I don't neglect the old ones. Just like a true friendship, I make new friends, but I never forget the old ones...
Have you dug your drawers? How many old stamps are lying there untouched for so many months?
Some time ago, the blog writer of Tobucil contacted me and asked my permission to be published in their blog. It's about the crafter's life. So, here I am in Tobucil website. The post tells you my journey in crafting. Yes, I know, it's in Bahasa Indonesia, not in English.
Here is the link.
I sent some other pictures to the admin in Tobucil. Well, they only needed 4 pictures. So here are the rest..
Don't you love them? You may order them. You can visit my website for the kurumie and washi doll here.
See you again...
Today, I managed myself to make 2 cards. The time like this is so rare. Everyday, I am pretty busy with all the stuffs at school. I manage 6 classes this semester with only 2 teachers including me. I myself teach in 3 classes. I also manage craft classes in 2 schools. It's an amazing job but it's really time consuming when it comes to the preparation time.
So, these days are the days for the Final Exams. So I don't need to be at school. That means I will be free for almost 2 weeks. Hurrrayyyy...
Here is the first card. I used stamps and punches from Stampin Up. The black pattern paper is from Violet Crush Kaiser. I love this paper pad. All papers are so beautiful that I bought 3 pads. Hehehe...
The second card was a simple one. I was inspired by Vera, who used the old stamp from Hero Arts. Her card reminded me to open again the drawer of the Hero Arts clings. I found this Dandelion and other flowers. I used Neenah paper for the first time. Because I just saw the pack between all the solid papers. Hehehe..
Take my advice: dig your drawers where you put old stamps. Use them again and again. Then you won't feel guilty buying new stamps.. Agree? LOL...
I was inspired by Stampin Up! cards using Pansy stamp+punch in Pinterest. I made this card based on one card there (sorry, I forgot the link). I revised a little bit by adding another flower. The pattern papers are from New Bloom, Trimcraft. In one 6x6 pad, all the papers are so adorable. I think I will use them more often.
I love frantage, especially Shabby White Embossing Enamel. It is sooo versatile. Don't you think so?
However, I also like roses on my creations. Here is one of them. I just made it. It's the first time for me using this technique. I stamped 2 different stamps on the same area. I used the Stampamagic. I used Stampin Up! stamps for the roses. The sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink. The frame die cut is from MFT.
Here is the card..
Do you also like roses?
Today is my birthday. And I want to share the color I love. As a crafter, I love all colors. However, I have a color I love most. It's turquoise. I love silver jewellery. So, I was inspired from the color of my bracelet, ring and pendant. Here is the picture.
Sometimes, people tend to send a bouquet of roses for someone. Especially on a birthday. I also adore flowers. I love smelling the roses. But my favorite flower since '80s is Hibiscus. Still in turquoise ambiance, I made this card.
What is your favorite color and flower? Share with me...
PS: I had a wonderful birthday with my daughters. We didn't celebrate it, just prayed for my birthday and we had a usual dinner. I love simple life..
I managed myself to make 10 French cards using Eiffel stamp from Hero Arts. They are available for sale at Galleried Lafayette, Pacific Place, Jakarta. If you happen to be in Jakarta, you may check them in person. Lol.. They look prettier in person.
I love this Eiffel stamp. The sentiments are also from the stamp set of Hero Arts stamp. And the papers are not for sale. So, these cards are a Limited Edition. grab them fast...
