Coffee Card swap for June, 2019

Yummy frappuccino season is in full swing! I love this bear from Essentials by Ellen! He can hold so many things, and "this morning, he is holding a yummy frappuccino in the forest"! 
I used the sakura gel pen to give the shine on his sunglasses. 

So what is your fav. frappuccino flavor? Mine is green tea and mocha! 

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

Coffee card swap for May 2019

Well, this is my Coffee themed card for May swap, but forgot to take a picture.. Glad the recipient posted the picture in our group so that I can save. :) 
I was happy to find this ribbon, matched colors of this card, in my ribbon stash! :)
Love this new stamp from Newton's Nook design! 
This is what I feel every morning! lol :) 


Happy Birthday!

This card is for my godmother in VA. Since I moved to Hawaii, slowly my mind is moving from "Latte Stone" to "Pineapple"! She has almost everything and I haven't sent her a card with pineapples on it, so I decided to make this card. A little later, I found this pendant and bought it to myself. I really like it and decided to send this to her as a birthday gift, matching to my card! :)  

I already received a reply from her that she really liked the pendant!

Happy 45th Anniversary, Hero Arts!

Hero Arts Show & Tell Celebration ~ 45th Anniversary

I've been stamping since 70s'? when I was in elementary school in Japan. In their culture, "stamping" for the new year cards has been common ever since.  
I saw this stamp in Tokyo, Japan, early 90s'. I wanted to make Christmas cards and "Peace on Earth" has been my fav. saying, and it was in English! If I'm not mistaken, I found it in a department store, in stationary section, maybe 25+ years ago ...? When I last moved, giving up hundreds of wood mounted rubber stamps, I still couldn't part away from many stamps from 90s' made... and this is the oldest from Hero Arts. I can still stamp and get a good enough impression using a soft cushion underneath of a paper but it became more of a "treasure" than just a rubber stamp to stamp to make a card. I even decorate it wz winter village on the mantle for Christmas sometimes. I stamped in black ink, and colored, and also you can see from the picture that I used color markers to stamp. I usually clean my stamps very well but I don't' recall I had a good ink cleaner in early 90s'... Back then, I wasn't really familiar with Hero Arts but since then, all the stamps I still have from 90s', I have Hero Art's the most, which means, they've been making "masterpieces"!! ❤ They are still making great stamps, wood mounted, unmounted rubber stamps & clear stamps. I just bought the stamp kit of the last month. I love Hero Arts because of the affordable prices with great designs which is also timeless!  

Hope y'all are having a nice weekend!

Happy Easter #3

My last Easter card this year. I made this for my best friend in college. I received these bunny & speech bubble dies from my long time card making friend. I really love the new 6x6 rainbow papers from Lawn Fawn. I used one of those papers to die cut the grass, too. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  

I really want to stamp this egg image from Essentials by Ellen, and used their sentiment inside of the card 😊

Hope y'all had a wonderful Easter!

Happy Easter #2

This is my 2nd card, and for my fellow card maker/"mouse" family who sent me this bunny peeps die!! I just love this die ❤ She knows me like 15 years, and so yes, she knows that I love peeps! lol I used new Lawn Fawn's 6x6 rainbow paper, sentiment ,and the colored eggs stamp from Essential by Ellen. I also used the scallop frame die from MFT. 
This is the inside of the card. The egg die & glitter paper are from Lawn Fawn, and the sentiment is from Essential by Ellen.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Hope your Easter is "egg-stra" special!

"HOPPY" Easter #1

Happy Easter!
I made this card for my godmother. The front is covered by all Lawn Fawn products; egg dies, glitter papers & speckled paper. I didn't want to add anything else on the front cuz it's already pretty much festive...
So, I decided to decorate inside, with the sentiment I planned to place on the front.
I love this bear from Essentials by Ellen and its "wears." 😃 I used MFT's grass die to decorate a bit more. I used Altenew stamps for the cherry blossoms and colored them in with Zig watercolor blush. I thought the front & inside design came together. 

Have a wonderful Easter Sunday! ❤
