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 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!
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!
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 😊
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! ❤
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.
Finally I had a chance to order the rainbow die and got time to use it! I first watercolored the white watercolor card stock for the sky. I used wink of stella shimmer pen on the rainbow. Clouds & banner are Lawn Fawn dies, as well as shaker jar & the leprechaun's hat. I found a white shimmer paper for the clouds, and it looks better in person. I used MFT grass die. I made this one for my godmother 😊
This is the card I made for Coffee card swap group for January. We can make a card using Hot chocolate or tea instead of coffee design. Most of the places in US mainland is now having a cold weather. In fact, we are also having a cold weather this weekend, due to the cold front over the islands. Yes, when people say "cold" in Hawaii & Guam, it's upper 70F, and dips into low 60F... lol...but we aren't being sarcastic, but true... funny how your body adjust to certain temperature & climate... Anyways, I used "bokeh" paper from Lawn Fawn and "falling snow-like" paper from Sunny Studio. This card is made of different company's products, and I love all of the things I used here, to make this card :)
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Hope you are all having a relaxed weekend! Eve
