I made this card, trying to combine both challenges at Altenew this month; July 2017 Inspiration Challenge and Sketch challenge #3 for scrapbook page. I used the rose, and the three main colors on this inspiration photo, and for the sketch challenge, I used the sketch part. Sketch challenge also allows "other project" than just scrapbook page. The color combo is also similar this month.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Have a nice evening! Eve
In summer time, I love to go to the beach to gaze stars... from the sunset when I can spot the first star... I currently live by the beach, and summer is all year around... but never get tired of the scene... I made this card for Lawn Fawnatics Challege #8 "Summertime fun!". I'm going to send this card to my godmother who says, enjoying to receive my handmade cards... :)
...to my friend's high school daughter who is lucky enough to spend her birthday in Europe!
I used the Hero Arts Ombre ink. I love those inks :) I found a multi colored ribbon in my stash :) I found a pearly paper in my stash, cut it with the sentiment dies. I love when I can "use up" the left overs from long time ago, to incorporate with the new things I got. I used the stitched edge circle die, to cut out the center. The whole front panel is elevated with foam panel underneath. This card will be waiting upon her return to US. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Eve
This week's challenge at HMFMC is "Let's get some berries". I have a friend in our House Mouse group, who's birthday is coming soon. I recently received a new stamp set from Altenew. I wanted to combine them all. :) Here is my card.
I wanted the strawberries to be the "present", so I "wrapped them with a ribbon"!
My former roommates had their 1st baby. It's a Girl!
I used Lawn Fawn stamp sets and background paper. I once lived in Australia, and I was very excited when Lawn Fawn made a stamp set, called "Critters in Down Under". Australia has many unique animals and birds :) I colored kangaroos with Zig watercolor brushmarkers, but used Prisma colored pencils for grasses.
Slowly catching up to post my cards. I made these 3 Valentine's day cards this February.
I used Penny Black stamps mainly for all these cards.
The background is stamped repeatedly by the Altenew, a small "tiny hearts background" stamp. Here is the inside of the card. I made these 3 cards at the same time, and did die cuttings on colored & designed CS. I didn't wanna waste those left over CS, so I kinda planned to use them for inside, die cutting accordingly, like you can see them below. Mixed and Matched :) "Ink bottle and the pen" stamps are from Lawn Fawn's stamp set.
My 2nd card. I used Lawn Fawn's stitched die to make this card with a bit of interests, kinda matches with the stitches on the pillows this adorable cat is sleeping on :)
And the inside of the 2nd card.
3rd card. The die for the saying is from Lawn Fawn dies set.
Inside of the 3rd card. I used wink of stella to give a bit shimmer to the red heart.
I made this card before St. Patrick's day but hadn't had time to upload til now. So here it is.
I used an old Darcie's pot of gold stamp. Also the rainbow is from an old Darcie's stamp. I just love these stamps. Background is done, with sponging technique, using Lawn Fawn's cloud dies set, masking. Other stamp images are all from Lawn Fawn.
I miss chatting with my best friend from college. She is a successful career woman, works full time, mother and wife. Her daughter is still in high school, so she is extremely busy. I work full time, so I understand. I miss my college time when only thing we worried about was our grades. Besides studying time, we were rather free. And living half around the world away doesn't help, either. Usually I hear that after sending their kids to college, the parents would have more free time. So maybe someday soon... I made this card to that friend.
I used Simon Says Stamp set and Lawn Fawn stamps set for the background. The little disposal coffee cup with the lid die is from Simon Says Stamp. I used this die, 3 times on different colored CS, so that I could get eyes, mouth, arms and heart :) I colored the lid and colored the coffee sleeves. Saying dies are also from Lawn Fawn dies set, and found the saying in stamps sets in different companies stamp sets. I always love to make "coffee" themed card, so I often buy the embellishments whenever I find, under the theme, and the ribbon was one of them. :)
I know, it's already April... but I've been making cards, and haven't had time to upload them, so little by little, I'm uploading those I've made and sent out.
I used Hero Arts Stencil for the background. "Happy Birthday" saying die is from LawnFawn. This was sent to my friend in House Mouse group. It was a long way to get delivered but those little sequins survived on "rough mail ride"! And this is inside of the card.
The image is from House Mouse designs, too but used their bear, Gruffies stamp. Saying is from C.C. Designs ("Birthday's"). Never heard of this company before, but when I was browsing Joann.com's page online, I found it. They are red rubber only stamps set.
Thank you for stopping by to see my card :) Happy Easter!
It's for a male friend whom I sometimes call "funny monkey" (!! in a nice way. wz some love).
I used Lawn Fawn stamps set and dies. I love their "critter" series. For the background, I used their "cloud" dies, to use them as "masking" to make a sky. I didn't buy the coordinating dies to this stamps set, so I used scissors but their images aren't intricate to cut. I used 3D foam tape to adhere some of the leaves, to give some dimensions.
Hello. Easter is almost here. "Happy" time of the year. Spring, Flowers, ...and FOOD?! Well,I'm submitting this to House Mouse Challenge ("food and OR drink" theme, not an Easter theme. hahaha But, carrot is food ;) )
I used Hero Arts Stencil to make a "happy" background :)
