Hello Friend

Morning,
Just a quick post from me. Have I ever told you that I love critters images from Lawn Fawn? Yes, I really like them and use them a lot in my creation. This is one of them:
Isn't that puppy so nice? I made it very simple to give more center of attraction to the image. And also, I enter my card to Lawnscaping challenge #47.
Hope you like it.

Floral Birthday


Hi,
This is second post of the day. I want to share my card I made yesterday. I love flower and I'm not sure how many stamps with flower image I have now. Never really counting. LOL.

So, here is another one:
 
I use three color combination: turquoise, red, and kraft. I clear-embossed flowers and leaf from Lawn Fawn Flutter By set, blending it with distress ink, cut, and arrange. I stamped the grid background from Hero Arts with white pigment ink from Versacraft.

I decided to give a birthday sentiment since I receive many request for birthday card. So whenever there's a need for them, I have it ready with me.
By the way, I enter this card to Lawnscaping Challenge # 47.

That's all for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Cards in bright colors

It's another monday in December and 2013 is so close. Whatever your plan for the next year, I wish you a day better and brighter :)

Talking about bright, I tend to pick everything (cloths, furniture, wall paint, etc) in pastel or bold color, also in card making. That is why, when Hero Arts launched ink in neon colors, I didn't really interested. However, I couldn't resist seeing so many inspirations with this bright color and finally I decided to order them at Ellen Hutson.

I'm still in a waiting for those order to arrive and I found that Moxie Fab World carried The Keen on Neon Challenge. I just said WOW, bright colors are not bad at all! It's fantastic. I just have to go out of my comfort zone and be challenged to have a color experiment.

Anyway, since I don't have neon ink yet, I use my cardstock in bright colors to create this card:

Finished size: 4.25 by 5.5 inch; Cardstock: Hero Arts; Tools: Memory Box Dies - City Scape, EK Success Scissor Pro; Sentiment: Hero Arts.

And this card:
 Finished size: 5.5 by 4.25 inch; Cardstock: Hero Arts; Tools: QuicKutz Alphabet Dies; Others: sticker, twinery, button.

I dedicate my second card to every mother since we (in Indonesia) are having mother's day in December 22nd.

Calendar Project

Hi again,
I was thinking of giving a little appreciation for my daughter's teacher at elementary. Something that is useful, personal, and of course, my handmade paper craft project. I did internet exploring and end up with many inspirations. Considering that new year is coming, I think that making desk calendar would be nice, as you can find in this adorable blog: http://www.damasklove.com/diy-landscape-calendar/. Thanks Amber for inspiration.

Anyway I made this as simple as possible, because I had limited time.
I cut an A6 size - you simply divide A4 card stock into 4 sheets (I use Neenah white cardstock). This is the front base. I just need to have an acrylic standing block to put them:
   

Here are details for each month. I use lots of stamp set for the images, but mostly they are from Paper Smooches Smarty Pants. I did coloring by copic marker.
  

  

For the month of June, I used image from Lawn Fawn Critters in the Burb. June is graduation month, you know why I put that hat for the dog :)

Here I used images from Paper Smooches Promenade and Lawn Fawn Cruising Through Life.

Ohhh, this professor is so cute.

 

Here are the back side. This is a note sheet, so that her teacher can write on them.

 Another look:

That's for the day. I hope you inspired. Have a nice day :)
