What a storm!!

Hurricane Ike -- what a storm!! I hope everybody is doing fine. I know many people are still having the difficult time right now. I'm praying they can be back to the normal life as soon as possible.

We had the strong winds and a lot of rains here. A lot of trees, even big and tall ones fell from the roots! Fortunately my house and land didn't get any damage.
The hard part was that we lost the power for 4 days!! Our water is from the well and we use the electric pump. Everytime we lose the electric, we can't use water! I think no water for 4 days was the hardest part during and after the storm.

ハリケーンIke-- かなり大変でした!!今でも、多くの被害者が、とても辛い時間を過ごしています。一日でも早く元の生活に戻れる事を願って止みません。


Now, the power is back. I can finally upload the cards I made last week :)

I have 2 cards to show you. I used There She Goes stamps for the both cards. The more I use the stamps, The more I'm loving them!
You can purchase the stamps from There She Goes website. You can also check the beautiful creations that the DT members made here!


今日は、2つのカードを載せておきますね。両方ともThere She Goesのスタンプを使いました。使う度に、このスタンプが好きになってきます!
今回使ったスタンプは全て、There She Goesのサイトで購入することが出来ます。

LSC185 - Butterfly Happiness

I made this card for SCS's Limited Supplies challenge 185. I saw Dawn Easton's stunning card on the other day, I had to try this color combo. I used Butterfly Happiness stamp set with Faux dry emboss technique.

このカードは、SCSのリミットサプライチャレンジ185で作ったものです。Dawn Eastonさんの見事なこのカードを見てから、この色の組み合わせを、自分も使いたくて仕方ありませんでした。フェイクドライエンボスのテクニックと一緒に、Butterfly Happinessセットを使いました。

Here is the close-up

Stamps: Butterfly Happiness (There She Goes)
Paper: pacific point, old olive, whisper white (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: pacific point, old olive, whisper white craft (Stampin' Up!), Signo white gel pen (Uni-ball), black marker (EK Success)
Accessories: Nestabilities (Spellbinders)

Gentle Thoughts

I used Here For You stamp set for this card. The image of the bird with the branch is just so gorgeous and I really wanted to use Resist technique with the embossing powder... well, I was planning it until the power was out! I stamped all images with VarsaMark and the black ink first. When I was about putting the clear embossing powder, I lost the electricity....for the next 4 days.....I had to change my plan and I still managed to make the card the way I liked!
I stamped the same image with the dark puple ink, a little off from the black stamped images to make the shadow look.
I used the brayer to color the background and also sponged around the edge.

このカードでは、Here For Youセットを使いました。枝に乗っている鳥の素敵なスタンプも、このセットに入っています。今回は、エンボスパウダーを使って、レジストのテクニックをする予定でした・・・・電気が止まるまでは。イメージは全て、ヴァーサマークと黒のインクでスタンプを捺しました。クリアエンボスパウダーをかけようとしたその時、電気が止まっちゃったんです・・・それもその後4日も・・・プランを変え、何とか自分なりに気に入ったカードを作ることが出来ました。

Stamps: Here For You (There She Goes)
Paper: lavender lace, elegant eggplant, very vanilla (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: elegant eggplant, lavender lace (Stampin' Up!), Palette noir black (Superior)
Accessories: ribbon (Papertrey Ink), distressing tool (Tonic)

I'm so glad to be back here. Hope everybody have a wonderful day~
