Happy Thanksgiving

I made some Thanksgiving cards and a "fall" card, using Lawn Fawn stamps and stitched leaf dies. 

Except the tree and tiny maple leaves, all images are Lawn Fawn's new stamp sets. I colored them all with watercolor pencils.

I made this one, for a Male friend (pictures show the front and inside) Wanted to make it rather simple cuz it's for a guy but he is the one who uses smiley emoticons, I used those little faces on a couple of apples and a couple of pies. I used watercolor pencils, too, to color.

This card is a little different. (the pictures show the front and inside) The recipient is in Japan, and they don't have Thanksgiving day, but the country changes its colors to "the fall" with so many trees and leaves (esp. maple leaves), I made this card, using Lawn Fawn's "stitched leaves dies". I enjoy to see beautifully "colored" maple leaves in the fall. In a little circle, on the left corner, I wrote "fall" in Japanese. 

The last card is very similar to the first card, but colored them with Prisma colored pencils. I also ran out of the background paper, I used different one, and it was rather simple, I adhered some maple leaves in different sizes. 

I love making fall cards! as long as time allows... I have so much design in my head when it comes to the fall/Thanksgiving cards.. but now, I have to start making Christmas cards before too late. 

I'm submitting a card to Lawnscaping Challenges.  

Hope you'll all have a happy Thanksgiving and travel safe :)

"Hoppy" birthday!

Hello. Hope you all are having a nice week, heading to April... 

This is my new HM (Hoppy Hopper) stamp (on the front). The color combo was inspired by lavender and it's stem. I had those printed pretty 6 x 6 paper, and cut those two flowers out, attached the gems in the center. Background is actually using embossing folder and sanded the elevated areas, and it turned out to look like the background you used stencils and some paste. So, I'm submitting this to HMFMC#216  which is "Use Stencils". But I'm not cheating ;) Because they always accept "Anything Goes" theme :) 

This is the inside of the card. 

Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today.

"Pastels" challenge at HMFMC

When I saw "Pastels" challenge at House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog, I had to make a card. ;) Love "Pastels" on the card, Spring time :) .. I know Guam doesn't really have Spring.. but in my mind, Easter time is Spring ;) 

I happened to have 'metalic color" photo corners, so I used those. Other than that, it's pretty much self explanatory. I colored with Prisma color pencils. 

Hope you are having a relaxing weekend. Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I also made this St. Patrick's day card, using House mouse stamp. 

Colored in with watercolor pencils. I'm also entering this to House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Easter and Anything goes. This mouse always makes me smile. I've had this stamp for ... like 12 years? since it's been released by Stampa Rosa.. one of my most fav. and well loved stamp! :) 

Happy Easter!

Hi, it's been a while since I posted on my blog. Time surely flies.. and this year, Easter is coming early... so here is my HM Easter Card, the front and inside. 

I used the same stamp for the background on the front and inside, with white pigment ink and clear EP, heat set them. Colored the image with Prisma color pencils. Those little carrots are punches, and I used green and orange CS to make the carrots, look like carrots ;) I'm entering this card to House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge Easter

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Hope you'll have a great Easter! 
ps. Please don't forget to turn the clock forward before you go to bed this coming Saturday, if your US state has "daylight saving"! :)

2 Thanksgiving cards

hello~ finally I made Thanksgiving cards. When I do have time, I always make these cards for two people, very dear in my life, cuz I'm thankful for them. :)
This is to my godmother in VA. I could've put shimmer, etc. but to me, "thanksgiving" makes me to think "primitive" than "sparkling", so I used the burlap and twine. It's hard to tell from the picture but all images are attached with pop up glue dots, so it has more depth than it shows on the picture, incld. the paper strip of pumpkins on the bottom.

This is for my best friend, also in VA. I cut stumps on the designer paper, distressed them, and glued them. Pop up glue dots were used for all other elements on this card.
Pictures aren't great today... maybe cuz it's already in the afternoon... usually I take a picture of the card in the morning. ...
Hope you all are having a great weekend :) Me? I'm heart broken cuz my team has just lost the game in OT, very close game to the end... I watch football & ice hockey INTENSELY, and I get tired after the game, esp. when we lose... haha....
Now FINALLY time for making Christmas cards! :) Eve
