Happy New Year's "EVE"! lol ;-)

Finally I got some "MY TIME". I'd been so busy and hadn't checked blogger for 10 days? and hadn't posted it any on my blog for almost 3 weeks! Hanukkah, Christmas, "thanksgiving in december party", all in 10 days with lots of baking & cooking, and "moving" (again!) made me really busy. Hope you all had a wonderful Hanukkah, Christmas & looking forward to the new year, 2012!

Today is my birthday, and I'm uploading the birthday cards I made for others this month. LOL! Unfortunately I hadn't had enough time to finish & mail them, but when new week starts, I'll go to the post office to mail them. They are for my House Mouse online buddies. The first one ~ Confetti were colored with Perfect pearls, using water. Three little confetti & the mouse were layered with pop up glut dots for more dimention, as well as punched out balloons on the right. The strawberry cake stamp is from PSX. I used Glaze pen over strawberries, clear star pen over the lace on the cake stand, yellow stickles for candle lights. I've drawn "stitch line" around the image. The second one ~ I think most are self explanatory. I used Glossy accents on keyboards, three jumping mice were layered with pop up glue dots for more dimention. I used this colors (black & red) because I'm sending a snoopy rubber stamp, in red sports car, which I also have in Guam (the car, I mean! lol!), with black leather inside, which is my "love" in Guam! lol :-) The recipient luvs Snoopy stamps as well as I do (I believe!), so I bought the stamp which would match with this card colors :-)

Thank you all for stopping by my blog today. Hope you'll all have a SAFE New Year's Eve. I'll see you soon in 2012! :-)

~ Traditional Christmas Colors ~

This is the theme at One Stop Craft Challenge this week. Although I used Distress inks, they are Red & Green, the traditional christmas colors :-) Small trees were punched out from textured (embossed) card stock. Twines and background DP were too white so I distressed them using TH distress ink, directly to them. I used Viva Decor Pearl pens for Cream & Gold pearls on branches, and used "distressed" red glitter for red dots on branches. I used the nestabilities for sentiment, which I CUT & mailed it here. I don't have a nestabilities with me, and had to color the edges, as the way it is shown there, different from coloring using the nestability dies, stil attached to the die cut outs. I found this image from my stash from years ago, and wanted to color it as soon as I found it, and this will go to my house mouse online buddy in NM :-)
Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today, in your busy Holiday Season. I appreciate it! :-)

~ Blue Christmas ~

That's the theme at Delightful Challenge, and this is the card I made for my best friend & Godmother this year. Well, right now, I'm in Guam, USA, "where America's day begins", so it's like on this card here, at the moment, Santa is coming from the sea, with dolphins! ;-), with lots of sunshine, blue sky, blue ocean, seashells... all stamps are from Guam's original stamp company. On the small ornaments on the right bottom corner, you can see Palm trees on one and "latte Stones" on another one. "Latte Stones" are found on Guam and neighboring islands, and nobody really knows why they are here... You can't really see it from the picture, but the main image is more shiney, from me using sakura clear star pen to give more shimmers on the sun & waves. I put fun flock for santa's clothe too :-) Both are going to VA where they expect Snow flurries on Christmas day, I'm mailing this card, with lots of sunshine & WARM feeling! :-)
Hope you are having a nice Sunday evening~~ Thank you for stopping by! :-)

thank you card

ok, lots of places have started to see the White Stuff which I don't like. lol... but I wanted to share this card with you today, the one I made for our "Thank you" swap for my House Mouse group I belong. It was the swap of November, and it went out on 30th, the last day of due date :) The recipient will be receiving it, very soon. I couldn't take a good picture. I haven't figured out how to take a good picture at the place where I am now, yet... with lighting and all.. so I have a bit more to explain about things the camera didn't pick up.... the leaves on the main image, I used the glitter pen to draw the veins of most of the leaves. Two falling leaves & mice were cut from the 2nd stamped image, and were adhered with foam tape to give a bit of dimention. I used distress inks for trees, before attaching them on the card. I also used the weavy textured paper to punch out the dark brown trees. I don't have a cuttlebug where I am at now... I chose this image for this swap because I wanted to say, "for being a friend" inside :-) The mice got a ride from this doggy, because they are friends :-) I also distressed the fall leaves DP because the white parts of the paper was "too" white. Hope the recipient of this card will be pleased with my card :-)
Thank you for stopping by my blog today :-) Have a nice evening~~:-)

"Snow Much Fun!"

ok, I never think so but the challenge calls for that, and I love to watch Ice Hockey games, so here is my take on the challenge at Creative Inspirations. I made this card to my House Mouse Online buddy who also loves to watch sports, incld. NHL, like me! :) That's the only time I WOULD go to the COLDER place, EAGERLY! lol!
Three mice on the front and a puck were cut from the 2nd stamped image, layered them for more dimention. Yes, those "wooden" hockey sticks were even thinner than the tails of mice, and I almost cut them off! lol! I used yellow stickles for the fire. I distressed the edges of the main panel. Since I wanted this to be a Christmas card to her, I added the tree, being decorated with stars and tinsels (I wrapped the tree with tinsel), used foam tape for more dimention.
Hope you are having "Snow Much Fun" wherever you are at, while I'm having "SUN Much FUN" at the beach! lol ;-) Thank you for stopping by my blog today :-)

~ it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ~~

yes, it is :-) The other day, I went to Home Depot (in Guam). People were loading Fresh Christmas Trees up to their SUVs, like this card! :-) Except there is no snow here on the Tropical Island :-) Anyways, I made this card to my old time online friend whom I recently reconnected once again. She loves cats, like I do, and I had this stamp for ages but never inked it before! ha! yes, I was ONCE a COLLECTOR, like many stampers from old time were (or still are! lol!). I'm also submitting this card to the challenge at the Paper Variety where they are having the theme of "Christmas lyrics" :-) yes, I'm singing, like these peanuts! lol :-)Lots of Old stamps have black images on the back of the stamps, not colored, and in a way, it's good because you can color anyways you want, and I chose RED for this car, because I have a RED car which I love, and missed a lot! :-) I distressed the edge of the main image panel. Then I used Sakura Souffle pen/white to make snow, lots of snow, ... like Snow Storm! lol :-) Although the picture doesn't show, the layering blue paper underneath has simmer in it. I distressed a bit of plain but DP, with Snowflake stamping in the same distress ink. For the sentiment, I first stamped music notes in versa mark, but it doesn't show much, esp. in the photo but it's there! :-) I wrote a Christmas lyrics on it, and used Sakura Souffle pen again, to make MORE snow! :) Yes, this card has lots of snow on it, because although the recipient of this card lives in NV, she loves SNOW! (I can't believe that fact! lol!) So I'm sending her lots of snow on this card! :-) On mom cat's coat (cuffs), baby cat's hat, and big brother cat's hat have flock on them, to show the fuzz! :-) I also used silver mica powder to paint (mixing with water) for the rims of the tires, but it doesn't show on the picture much either. ..

Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today. I appreciate your comments! Have a nice evening~~ :-)

Finally, A Card!!

Actually I've been making cards lately, although the last post of my card is over 2 months ago... it's hard to make cards in different location, with lack of stamping supplies. Also I can't find the place to take good pictures... anyways, when I saw this image, one of my "house mouse online buddy" came to my mind. ok, she is a quilter and this is not a Quilting image, and I know House Mouse Does have a quilting image but this image is the closest image I got; quilt~cozy & warm inside~this image! lol :-) I layered the cuff of the hat & three mice but cut the images separately so some of the mice's ears could go over the raised cuff of the hat. I used the flock on the top of the hat, for "fuzzy" feeling :-) To make it more like a Christmas card to my friend, I added the christmas tree brad on the left corner, and plastic Glittery Poinsetta button on the right, although the glitter doesn't show that much on the picture. I used DP to punch out the mittens, and adhered with dimentional glue dots. "Mittens" give "fuzzy & warm" feelings. :-) Since House Mouse & Friends' Monday is having the challenge of "Fuzzy & Warm", I'm submitting this. I used this sentiment, feeling "peace" from these mice's sleeping faces...
Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today. Hope you are having a cozy & warm evening wherever you are at :-)
editor's note; right now, I'm on the tropical island, no need of mittens nor hat, but wearing the t-shirt & shorts. Lots of sunshine and luving it! I can't take "cold/snow" :-)

Sorry for not posting sooner...

It's been more than 6 weeks I hadn't post anything on my blog. Some of you may know that my life got really busy with unexpected turns. I've found some time to stamp meanwhile but I'm in a different location now, and not only I don't have full tools & stamps, but also, I haven't found the right location for taking good pictures (with lighting and all). And today, I wanted to post Something else other than the card because I was very happy yesterday! Many of you know that I luv to watch Football, mostly, COLLEGE!, esp. My College!! I kind of lost any interest in Pros' after Dan Marino retired from Miami dolphins, and ever since, I watch NFL, with the teams I luv my fav. Players are playing for, just because I luv to watch their Awesome Plays! There are more I can talk about NFL, but today's post isn't about Football but rather the BEST of NHL players, coming back to the game, after 10 months of absence from suffering the Concussion! Sidney Crosby, the Pittsburgh Penguins' Captain suffered the concussion, and was absent from the game til yesterday, Nov.21, 2011. (against Islander's game). He came back last night, and played HAPPILY, and GREAT as he used to play!! I didn't have the access to the full game but watched the highlights, interviews, and other video clips from this game, and he looked so happy, as We All Penguins' Fans were!! I always feel so sorry who suffers from any kind of injuries from any kind of games. But this one hit hard, because not only Penguins is MY TEAM but also he is the best of best (active) NHL players, and yesterday's comeback drew the attention, not only nationally but internationally also. Yes, he is the best of best Ice Hockey players, and the World knows about him! So, I just wanted to post this, because I was very happy too. He scored 2 goals, had 2 assists and we won 5-0 over NY Islanders! :-)
I never cared for NHL til 3 years ago, when "someone" (wink wink!! ;-) ) took me to the game in Pittsburgh. And that year, Penguins won Stanley Cup (like winning Super Bowl for NFL, in case you aren't familiar with Ice Hockey). I was there in Pittsburgh, when they had a Victory parade in downtown. After that year, Winter Olympics took place, and watched Ice Hockey. I wanted US to win but Canada took the Gold medal, and Sidney Crosby was the best player there, too, from Canada. Then, earlier this year, Winter classics also took place in Pittsburgh, where Sidney Crosby got first hard hit which also caused his concussion and had to leave the rest of the season & this season til yesterday.
Anyways, thank you very much for stopping by today, and I'm sorry that this wasn't the post with my card but wanted to share my happiness from last night! Have a great day~~ :-)

Thank you card for World Cardmaking Day Challenge

at Lawn Fawn blog. The challenge is to make a Thank You Card, and send it to someone, so I made this card, and will mail it to my best friend from College. The sentiment stamp is from Lawn Fawn, of course (:-)) and tiny maple leaf is from their new halloween set. I luv this little stamp! It's so small but it became in handy, and I know I'll be using it often! :-) The sentiment is attached with pop up glue dots for a bit of dimention. I distressed the edges of the front panel and inside of the scalloped heart, with the mix of those distress inks I used for maple leaves. Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today! Hope you all had a great World Cardmaking day & weekend! :-)

CAS christmas card for world card making challenge

at Hero Arts' blog. I luv this Hero arts stamps (sentiment also!). I used viva deco arts red pearl pen for beries, and misted gold smooch sprits over it. I adhered the sentiment with pop up glue dots to give a bit of dimention. Now I have another Christmas card done! :-) If I keep making cards for Christmas challenges on the blogs, I might be able to finish most of the cards before December! LOL!! :-) Thank you for stopping by my blog! Have a nice evening! :-)

Accordion Birthday card

I made this accordion card for the list mom of the birthday swap I belong. This swap took the sign up in December, and the swap started on Jan. 1, so, my birthday being on 12.31, I'm the last one of the list, the last one to receive, from all the members on this list, the end of the year. But when I signed up, she sent me the birthday card right away, in December. How nice of her! I even received a couple of cards from the members on the list too! So, not to mention she keeps this list, sending the reminder for next month's birthday every month, I thought I would make a card, not a regular 2 folded card, but looks like a little present instead :-) And this is what I made. I got the instruction here. The first picture shows you the inside of this little booklet. All stamps are from Fiskars. I luv wine, esp. RED wine, and that's the reason I bought this set :-) I colored with color pencils, inkpads (using the brush & a bit of water), used copics for shades, and Glossy accent on the wine bottle & glasses. I used Swirl punch on dp around the Grape, to match with the vine. I cut thin pieces from the same dp to make a design on the last page. I also used many tiny pearls on the front and the last page inside. I layered two die cuts using pop up glue dots on each layer, and ribboned through the bottom layer. I really like how it turned out. The base is rather easy to make but it took a while to make a design, to make a book which has a "Story", from the beginning to the end. I'm mailing this tomorrow to our list mom. I'm also submitting this to some challenges.

Thank you very much for visiting my blog today. Have a nice evening! :-)

"Pop it Up" !

I made this card for "Pop up card" swap in the yahoo group I belong to. I also saw this challenge at the Pixie Cottage. At Cute Card Thursday, they are also running "Animal Crackers" challenge. I'd been wanting to use this Stove stamp for a very very long time. I mean, I think I bought this stamp like 8 years ago, but never inked it before! lol!! Anyways, I found "chef Amanda" from House Mouse this summer. I knew I would be making a card with these stamps soon :-) Finally the right time came, and I made this card! :-) The Pop Up parts are Chef Amanda & the image of flour sack. You can see where I used the "stages" in my 2nd picture. The flour stamp is also an OLD CTMH stamp! old as the stove stamp! LOL! The little cupcake in the middle is the center of sentiment stamp I found at Michaels ($1!). I stamped, colored and cut another mouse on the right. I colored the mouse image with a truffle, cut it from a larger stamp with 3 mice but I used only this mouse. I used color pencils, copics, paper piecing, perfect pearls, glaze pen... it is more shimmery in certain parts of this 'kitchen scene', in person. The sentiment stamp is from All Night Media . I used another dollar stamp for the front. I paperpieced the cupcakes and watercolored the cupcake stand. I found the pink CS with white dots heat embossed from my scraps. I used scallop circle nestabilities on this scrap. I used two dp from DCWV, cut them in triangle. Those yummy looking round embellishments are from my winning prize of Bingo game, from Peggie :-) It took a while to make this card but I enjoyed making it! :-)

Hope you all are having a great weekend. It's been a gloomy, cold weekend here...

Happy World Card Making day!!

Hope everybody is enjoying this special day, making cards! :-)

Well, I made this card for Back to School theme Swap, being held at the yahoo group I belong to, and since no more back to school theme challenge, I decided to upload this card for Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Challenge and Catch The Bug Challenge. I used school themed DP, colored the mouse & books, cut it, adhered with pop up glue dots. This is my LAST back to school theme card this year. I think I made enough of this themed cards this year! lol!

Hope you all are having a WARMER day than here today! :-)

Lawnscaping Blog Hop!! 9.9~9.11.2011

Welcome to the first ever Lawnscaping Blog Hop! So glad you are here! You should have come to me by way of Cathy Fongjoyo. This month's theme is magical Holiday projects! The hop runs from Friday, September 9th ~ Sunday, September 11th! Make sure to comment on all of the blogs because there are LOTS of prizes to be won! All the details can be found on the Lawnscaping home page.
Here are my cards. I made 4 Christmas cards & 1 Hanukkah card! :-)
First Card ~ I used Ornaments and stars from new Ornate Ornaments set. I inked only the outlines of the ornaments so that I could stamp penguins & polar bear from Critters in the Snow set inside of the ornaments. I also stamped the ornaments & snowflakes on transparency, heat embossed them, and layered them over the images on the white cs, to give a GLASS look :-) I used glitters for the snow on the ground for penguins ornaments.
 Second Card ~ I paperpieced all the ornaments, and heat embossed them. I used tiny gems to make more festive on ornaments! :-) All the ornaments & the sentiment were adhered with pop up glue dots to give more dimention, as well as the first card.

Third & Fourth Cards ~ I couldn't decide which colors I would like, and I made them both! lol :-) The ornament, Ribbon & the hanger are separate stamps. I luv this stamp set. There are even 3 different styles of hangers. You can make any way you like :-) I heat embossed the ornaments & the sentiment. This time, I used the sentiment, stamped the first half on top, and the second half on the bottom. "Merry Christmas" is a long one line sentiment stamp. For both cards, I used Nestabilities to cut the center of the front panel. I attached the focal image on the inside panel. For the white pearl center card, I used Viva decor Pearl pen to put pearls on swirls.
For the Hanukkah card ~ I used the white glossy paper, heat embossed with silver embossing powder (used brilliance ink for the stars, without heat embossing), used 2 distress inks, to get the main panel color. I used Ribbon tag nestabilities for the sentiment, used the same distress inks, adhered with dimentional glue dots. I used glitter for the flames.
Thank you very much for participating in this lawnscaping blog hop & stopping by my blog. :-)
Next head on to Deb Lengyel's blog. If you've gotten off track, don't worry! Head on back to Lawnscaping to see the complete list of designers.
Have a great weekend!! :-)
PS. I'm also submitting the first card to the current Lawnscaping challenge for Embossing Extravaganza.

Editor's note : The card with many little ornaments were featured on one of Fawny Flickr Friday on 9.23.2011.

the Shaped Sketch Challenge at Moxi Fab!

When I saw this sketch, immetiately I thought about this Seashell Duest Stamp from Posh Impressions. So I stamped them (duet~solid stamp & outline stamp), and thought around this main image. I heatembossed the outline. I used the printed paper of "water surface", stamped the bubbles in white, and then heat embossed them. I used light blue cs, stamped fish, have drawn the all lines with sakura clear glaze pen to give more distinguished images. I have handdrawn the wave line, using sakura clear star gel pen. It's more subtle look than using the silver color. I used Viva decor Pearl pen for the pearls on the seashell and around the circle. The second picture shows you more where they are heat embossed, where I used clear star gel pen & clear glaze pen, with the flash of the camera I used. Moxi fab is running other sketches. Sketches are one of my fav. challenge! :-) Hope I can find time to make more cards for other sketches before the deadline.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today. Hope you all are having a great labor day weekend! :-)

the Wall Quilt from Debbie Mumm!!:-)

Today, I've received a package from Debbie Mumm, the famous artist whose line of fabrics are wellknown around the world! What a Cheerful Beautiful quilt!! Amazing!! I've been her fan since early 90s', cuz I make cloth dolls, and her fabrics are just right for my "country" dolls. I also like patchwork, using her fabrics to make things, incld. small coasters. For last 20 years, I've collected her mug cups, plates, tea pots, tin cans, rubber stamps, buttons, etc., etc., and I even cross stiched 2 wall hangings of her design! I've sewn her christmas tree skirt, using her panel fabric. I have her notebooks, used her calendar, pocket planner, wallpaper on my computer, bought her art clip CD ... the list goes on. Now you all know that I've been a BIG fan! What I love about her designs are that they give me Warm Cozy feeling inside, even I lived in tropical islands where it never gets cold. lol :-) Anyways, so, because me being her big fan, she is on my facebook (meaning, I "like" her and I get her posts time to time). She used to have a blog, but she closed it, and later, she opened her facebook. I was very happy to see her there again. About 6 weeks ago, I saw her post, asking us to participate the survey, so I did. I usually take survey of the companies I like, hoping that would help the companies. I don't recall that she/her company mentioned about Giveaway for the participant of this survey, which was even short in my opinion, and her having over 2,000 fans on her facebook, I totally forgot about I even took that survey. Two days ago, I read her post saying that her staff was looking for ME, cuz I WON her signed wall quilt from taking that survey!!! I posted on her post that it was ME! Anyways, we had a couple of postings and I received an e-mail from the customer service rep. of her company that he was mailing it next day, and I received it today (9/2) from the westcoast (WA)!! I was amazed how quick they processed it, and how quick it was delivered, and inside of the box, as you can see, a REAL PRESENT!! When I opened the box, I saw the envelope, sitting on this PRESENT. I opened it, and it was a message from Debbie, as you can see. Yes, I AM EVIE BUNNY, on facebook :-) They wrapped her quilt in her fabric, and tied around it with her another pretty yellow fabric! I unwrapped the fabric, and inside, I found the Beautiful & cheerful flower wall quilt!! The size of this quilt is 30" x 30", larger than I thought! The details are Amazing!! You can see the back of this Amazing quilt on one of the pictures too. And she wrote my name, and signed on the corner!!! I will treasure this Beautiful quilt forever!! ... my recent project using her fabrics are a coster (luv making coasters!), and the background for my card, instead of using the paper, with the Coffee theme design! I love to buy her fabrics at my fav. Joann! :-) I still feel like I'm Dreaming... lol! :-) ps. I wanted to take better pictures with better background/wall. Some of you know that I live here temporary, and unfortunately I don't have nice open space for better picture shots. lol...

another "BACK TO SCHOOL" challenge!!

I must've been missing school so much?! This is my 3rd?, and I have to make at least one more for the swap I participate in, this month! The difficult part, making this theme card is that I have very limited "school theme" things to make cards. At the Pixie Cottage, they are running "back to school" challenge and/or the sketch. I chose both, and here is my card. I also flipped the sketch. For previous 2 cards, a "house mouse" and "tilda" looked happy and ready to go back to school, but this house mouse.. it seems he isnt' ready to go back to school yet... lol :-) I received this image from my house mouse online friend, Mary Anne (thanks again!), last fall, but last fall, I didnt' make any "back to school" card! I used old CTMH apple stamp, heat embossed them, to give a bit of thickness, and adhered onto double loops ribbons. The ribbon with printed apples is the last small piece I found in my stash :-) I put those tiny buttons on the corner with matching colors.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Hope you'll all have a great labor day weekend! :-)

Back to School~Tilda Version!~

This time, I made a card, using Tilda, for "back to school" challenge at Totally Tilda challenges, Stamp Something, and PaperPlay. Also at Magnolia Stamp Lovers, they are running the challenge of "Primary colors". I used Simon Says challenge's sketch. I cut the 'school' theme paper which I found at nearby scrapbooking store. It's been hard for me to find school 'related' things for my card, but I found this 12 x 12 BoBunny's paper, cut the part where there was a school building. I stamped the sun trimmed, to fit in that frame. I punched out a cloud, distressed the edge, and adhered it in that frame. I cut the yellow with grid lines part from the same paper, used the border punch, to follow the sketch, and for the sentiment. I attached those with pop up glue dots to give a bit of dimention, and then I cut Tilda out, and adhered her with pop up glue dots too, to give even more dimention. I used 1/4 of this 12 x 12 paper where the design of Blackboard was. I punched tiny holes, to use twines. I used uniball Signo white pen to draw stitches around the sentiment & side scallop border. On that same paper, I saw the math problems as its design. I DREW exactly the same way as the desgin, with unibal Signo pen. Surprisingly the WHITE color became soft PINK on this black background! lol So, I used sakura white opaque gel pen to draw the stitches around the blackboard. :-)

I luved school. I wish I was Tilda, going back to school! LOL School was Really FUN! :-)

Happy Belated Birthday!

My online friend, whom I've just met In Person told me that her birthday was like 2 weeks ago, so I decided to make a "belated birthday'" card. I used the sketch at Scrap-Creations , for this week's challenge. I love this sketch! It's cute! :-) I colored the cat & mouse, cut them and attached to the base, with pop up glue dots, to give a bit of dimention. I used Glossy Accent for the glass jar. I also used pop up glue dots for the main image, to attatch to the base CS. I used scallop circle nestie die and embossed with cuttlebug folder. I used fiskar's stamp for the corner, in white, then heat embossed it. I love this image! :-)
Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate your time and comments! :-)

Lets Get Fruity!

I love this image. When I saw this stamp for the first time, I thought of Chocolate covered strawberries! lol! You can see it here, if you'd like to know what I mean:-) I have a "house mouse" online friend's birthday, coming up for next month, but I couldn't wait to make this card for her. I usually make birthday cards when I get inspired so this will sit at my place for a month. lol! At House Mouse & Friends Monday challege, they are having "Let's Get Fruity" challenge. I thought this would be perfect :-) Also at The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge, they are having "Shaped" card challenge. This is my newest nestie die and wanted to use it! :-) And in fact, the shape & the size was perfect for this Cute image! I colored another image of mouse & "chocolate covered strawberry", cut them, and adhered with dimentional glue dots to give a bit of dimention, as well as the white card stock with distress ink around, and the sentiment. I used Glossy accent for chocolate to give a bit of a real look, and so is candle. I used glitter glue to the fire.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I really appreciate you all who takes time to visit & leave some comments! Hope you are haing a nice weekend!

2 "Fancy Folding" cards

Great challenge at Stamptacular Sunday! I've almost always loved to make 2 folded cards but this year, I've been trying to make 3D/different folding cards, for a change! lol Anyways, I made two fancy folding cards for my House Mouse group I belong to, for many years, for RAK to my long time house mouse buddy, Yara for her anniversary and for a swap, "summer fun" theme. My anniversary RAK is "Diamond Folding", and the "summer fun" swap card is Origami Diamond Folding". For Anniversary card ~ I used red liquid pearls for berries, pearl pen for around the image in the nestie die and the edge of the sentiment border. I love this pearl pen from Viva Decor. Fun to make pearls more than liquid pearls. I colored & trimmed the mice, layered using Dementional glue dots, and for a little heart above the mice :-) The sentiment is Penny Black. Love the vertical sentiment :-) For Summer Fun swap card ~ You can't see it on the picture, but used glitter on the sand. Usually on the beach, sands reflects the sunshine, and glisten! :-) On the second picture, the "post it note" which I attached SHOWS... forgot to take it out when I took the picture :-( oh well, it's always in the mail so I can't take another picture. lol... I used Inkadinkado's seashells stamp, and distressed it, and they were all heat embossed. On the front, I used another inkadinkado's sentiment stamp, handdrew the stitch line, and attached the seashell button. Thank you for visiting my blog today. Your comments are always appreciated! Have a great weekend! :-)

Back To School!

Although here in western PA, most school hasn't started yet, it seems schools across US have started... When I saw this sketch for the challenge at Sketch Saturday, for some reason, I thought of these apples & ABC for those 3 circle spots on the sketch, and right away, I remembered the recent image from House Mouse, and wanted to make a card :-) At Creative Inspirations & Delightful Challenges are holding "back to school" challenge (with Primary colours for Delightful Challenges), so this was perfect! To give dimentions, I attached the mouse, pencil, eraser and alphabets with pop up glue dots, and I put an extra glue dots for "A" for extra height. I didn't use pop up glue dots for the paper clip on purpose. Good thing I bought this Distressed looking apple & saying background paper when I stopped by the scrapbooking store last time :-) Apple stamp is from old CTMH. I used the wavy embossing folder for the border on the top. I love school, although I graduated from college many years ago, but "school was fun!" :-)

I made this card for SSS119 challenge, which is a sketch challenge. I cut these 2 mice with chocolates images from one stamp image. I used sakura clear glaze pen for chocolates, and mouse's teeth, and I used glossy accent for the icing. I attached 2 images with nestie dies with pop up glue dots to give some dimention. I'm going to send this to my "house mouse friend" who recently came home from the surgery.

Hope you all are having a great evening. Thank you for stopping by my blog today! :-)
