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!" :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Hope you are having a good thursday evening! :-)

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! :-)

Bridal Shower Card

I went to a bridal shower on saturday, and I made this small rounded card to attach to my gift. She isn't a stamper, and when she saw the front, she just said, "ahhh...." :-) After bride maid kinda lost on how to fold the card back, I went to her, explained very quick while the bride-to-be was still opening my gift, how this EASEL card was diplayed. I used Fiskars punch to make this beautiful rounded die with lacey image around. I cut a bit larger circle, adhere glitters. Then I cut another larger circle from CS, to finish the front. I stamped another image of the bouquet, cut only the flowers & leaves, adhered it with pop up glue dots to give a bit of dimention. At Simon Says challenge this week is having a Shaped (no square) card so I'm submitting this card to the challenge.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Hope you are having a great week! :-)
