Welcome Back

Hi Welcome Back,

I and Hubby finally finish my holiday in Dubai. I love Dubai because its foods are rich of spices, it has newest movie in cinemas, it cheap branded products, it has modern city and the city never dies.

Dubai's look from 124th floor Burj Al Khalifa



It is pity that i could not find any scrapbook/ card store in Dubai :(

This time, i am not making a card, yet, i am making envelope. This envelope is made especially by myself because the envelope sold in store is difficult to be colored using copic marker. Using that envelope, the ink may spread and the color becomes dirty.


To make envelope, i choose a white paper which is compatible to copic and ink pad. Then, using an envelope template bought at Kinokuniya Dubai, i design an envelope following the template's line. Next, i cut it. I stamp the front page of the made envelope, and color it with copic marker.

To maintain the color of image and shiny look, i apply Glue n Seal from Ranger (multi purposed glue and sealer/ vernis) on the image.

I apply Glue n Seal-Ranger on the Image (the image very Shiny)

I hope you are all happy welcoming my envelope :)

Don't Ask Me

Hi Everyone,

Please do not ask me what my favorite stamps. I will find them very difficult to tell. I like all kind of stamps. Each kind of stamps has its own feature. All we need to do is explore every image of stamps according to our own style.

Please also do not ask which is my favorite dies template or embossing folder. Dies template or embossing folder assist us to that, they help us to speed up our process of making cards.

The one that you may ask me is which brand of coloring i like. I love Copic, Distrees Ink and Carand'Ache. Their colors are easy to blend, has a liveful color and is not easy to get "Clotting".

And ask me about my Favorite embellishment, the answer is Baker's Twine especially from The Twinery and Pearls!
Baker's Twine from The Twinery is made from 100% cotton, it's eco-friendly and made in the USA. Whether you're gift wrapping, crafting or tying up baked goods to give to a friend, Baker's twine from The Twinery adds a fresh, yet nostalgic look to any project at hand! Baker's twine From The Twinery comes in 11 delicious colors and is uniquely twisted against a bright white hue, creating an eye-popping burst of color and a creative embellishment! Baker's Twine from The Twinery has lots of color which lends to a fun, candy-striped look. 
I just LOVE my Twine from The Twinery!!
Check out all fabulous Twine in all the Beautiful colors!! And check out The Twinery Blog HERE for lots of inspiration and tutorials!! And View Flickr Photostream too...

Purple and Green

Happy Weekend,

Purple and Green? hmmmm what will the final result looks like if i use these colors?
The theme of Farm Fresh Challenge for this week is purple and green. They both are bright colors and their colorful result are amazing. I love it.

For curtain, i use paper tissue. As a matter of fact, it is quite difficult to use paper tissue (Moxie Fab World). It is "too soft" to be shaped into many forms. The Curtain is a bit imbalance, I deliberately make it that way. I try to create an old house scene, a bit "disorder-looking" yet cool :)

Oyaaaa... Cas-ual Fridays has its first challenge this week. It's theme is Text. In the beginning, i am a bit confused what kind of card to create. Then, i try "image text" stamp on white paper twice. Next, i stamp"sofa image" two times above the image text. I color one of the sofas with purple therefore it matches the theme of Farm Fresh Challenge. At last, i cut then i glue the purple colored sofa image with adhesive foam tape on the top of the other uncolored sofa image. This will create 2D image sofa. The above technique is called Paper Piecing which fits to Simon Say Challenge.

I love Old Home but Chic Scene :)

Images: TGF, Hero Arts
Coloring: Copic
Curtain: Paper Tissue
Others: The Twinery, Wonky Rectrangles Spellbinders, EK Success, Pearls 

Thank you for coming to my blog. I am very glad if you all give comments and input to my blog. In fact, i am ready to visit all of your blogs to give comments too.

Happy Weekend and Keep Creating

Combination is Perfect

Hi Everyone...

For Penny Black challenge this time, i make a card with theme inspiration card from card team design. It is a quite difficult theme for me. In fact, i like all cards made by design team. It is no hesitation at all that they are chosen as design team due to its originality and inspiring designs.

It has been long enough that i become a follower of Kathy . The designs and colors of card made by Kathy are simple and eye-catching. One of the card made by Kathy which inspires my card today is here ,what you can see by clicking link.

Yes!!! The theme of Wee Memories Challenge and Simon Says Stamps Challenge are Paper Piecing this week. So, For "Cityscape", i use a paper piecing technique. I stamp the image on the white paper, then stamp a several times on colorful paper and patterned paper. I cut out colorful paper and pattern paper then attach to white paper using adhesive 3D foam tape. It is easy. It is good and perfect combination for my Penny Black Stamps, isn't it? For Coloring i use Copic Marker. Yesss my Style Card is Bright, Fun, and Mix-Match stamps...(Paper Play Challenge). LOVE IT!!!! 

I hope that you all have a good day, just like Hedgy in my card... Please Share Happiness with Friends (Lily Pad Challenge)... Please enjoy Your Day today.
