From Friend to Friend

Wow! 2 posts a day!! I got a little free time again after my DS's football season was over. I really loved to watch he played football, but I missed my stamping time a lot.

I made this card for SCS Sketch challenge 200. I also combined with Color Combination 189.
I used Here For You set from There She Goes. I really love the poem and am so happy I finally got to stamp it. The square images remind me the snap shots of the natures. The images are still super beautiful even though they were the inch square.

TSG is going to release the new stamp sets on Nov 1st. You are going to love Jessica's fabulous design!! Here is the sneak peak from Jessica's blog :)
And don't forget to check Jessica's blog on Sunday. You will have a chance to win the one of TSG DT's cards.


このカードは、SCSのスケッチチャレンジ200を使っています。カラーコンビネーション189も一緒に取り入れてみました。There She GoesHere For Youセットを使っています。このセットに、素敵なポエムがあるんですが、やっと今回スタンプをする事が出来ました。正方形のイメージは、自然のスナップショットを思い出します。このスタンプは、小さいインチスクエアを使っても、素敵なデザインができますね。


Stamps: Here For You (TSG)
Paper: pink pirouette, chocolate chip, whisper white, designer papers (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: chocolate chip (Stampin' Up!)

The Colors Make Me Happy

Hello everyone~
It's a beautiful day here in Texas. It's very cool today and I just love the crisp air in the morning :)

I made this card last night! The colors are from SCS Color Challenge 190. What a bright and happy colors!!
I also did the challenge for myself to make a Christmas card with non Christmas colors. It turned out to be the one of my favorite Holiday cards :)
The snowman stamp set I used is the first stamp set I purchased from Stampin' Up! I can say my stamp journey started from this set. I use the set for Christmas projects every year, and my kids use it for their craft projects sometimes. It's still my favorite snowman set of all:)


このスノーマンのスタンプセットは、Stampin' Up!から初めて購入したセットで、このセットから、私のスタンプジャーニーは始まったようなものです。毎年クリスマスのプロジェクトにも使い、子供達がクラフトのプロジェクトにも、時々使っています。色んなスノーマンのスタンプを購入してますが、未だに私が持っているスノーマンの中で、1番好きなスノーマンです。

Here is the inside of the card

It's Snow Time, Snow Flurries (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: kiwi kiss, pixie pink, tangerine tango, whisper white (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: basic black, kiwi kiss, pixie pink, tangerine tango, Stampin' markers (Stampin' Up!) black marker (.Too)

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!!


Stair Step Fold Card

Hello everyone~
Today, I made this Halloween card with Spooktacular Silhouettes set (sorry, it's sold out!) from There She Goes.
The card is called "Stair Step Fold" card. The folding was introduced at SCS Technique Lover's challenge 190 for a couple weeks ago. It's very unique and fun to make :)
Check this gallery for more wonderful stair step fold cards.

今日は、There She GoesからのSpooktacular Silhouettesセット(完売です)を使って、ハロウィーンカードを作ってみました。このカードは、ステアステップフォールドと呼ばれていています。この折り方は、2週間位前にも、SCSのテクニックラバー チャレンジ190で紹介されていました。とっても変わっていて、作るのも楽しかったです。

Halloween is next Friday!! This card will be the last Halloween card from me until next year because I have to shift my mood to make Christmas cards.
My kids, especially my DS is looking forward to going trick or treating. My DD is going to be a dead cheerleader and my DS is going to be Ninja (again!).
It's been so busy and it will continue next week also but I hope I will make a time to try some challenges here and there.


Stamps: Spooktacular Silhouettes (There She Goes)
Paper: elegant eggplant, old olive, pumpkin pie (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Palette noir black (Superior)
Accessories: Stickles (Ranger)

I hope you will have a nice weekend. Thank you for stopping by.


Did You Miss Me?

Hello everyone~
Did you miss me? I didn't update the blog for the last few days. I was cleaning and sorting my stamp area and it took more time than I expected... I finally had a time to stamp! Yeah!!

I also took some time off from all challenges this week. While I was sorting my cards, I found the swing card I made before. I remember it was so fun to make. I decided to try another one today!
I used this tutorial from SCS.



The first photo is the card in closing. The second photo is the card in opening. As the card is opened, the center panel flips. How fun!
I used Butterfly Happiness from There She Goes. The last time I used the set, I used the bright colors--pink and red. This time, I used the rustic colors to look more...vintage look :)

今回は、There She GoesからのButterfly Happinessを使いました。前にこのセットを使った時は、明るいピンク、赤系の色を使いましたが、今回はラスティック系の色を使い、ビンテージルックにしてみました。

Stamps: Butterfly Happiness (There She Goes)
Paper: really rust, chocolate chip, very vanilla (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: really rust, chocolate chip (Stampin' Up!), VarsaMark (Tsukineko), Copic markers (.Too)
Accessories: ribbon (Daiso)

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!


Think Pink

Hello everyone~
I made this card with using the sketch from SCS Sketch challenge 197.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so I thought it would be great to make a friendship card with PINK. I had a great time to make this card since this is the one of my favorite color combos :)


There are no special techniques for the card... Just stamp!
When I stamped the sentiment, I used Stamp-a-ma-jig to place them perfectly. I also attached the pearls on the corners, the sentiment and the center for the cut-out flower. I used the different size of the pearls for the flower to feel the different textures when you touch.

I have to go back to my table to finish a couple projects for swaps. I'll see you here when I come back again :) Have a wonderful day!



Stamps: Eastern Blooms, Celebrate Everything (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: pink pirouette, chocolate chip, whisper white (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: pink pirouette, chocolate chip (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: ribbon (PTI), pearls (Michael's)


Curved Pumpkins

Hello everyone~
This Halloween card was made with Spooktacular Silhouettes from There She Goes. Did you see the new prices of all of the stamp set? This set is costs only $10.00 right now (original price $20.00)!! That's 50% off!!! The other stamp sets are also changed to the new price. Jessica, you ROCK! You will be glad to check them out (after you read my blog, hehe)!

このハロウィーンカードは、There She GoesSpooktacular Silhouettesセットを使って作りました。スタンプセットの値段が変わったのは知っていますか?このセットは、今50%オフ、$10ドルで販売中です。他のスタンプの値段も、新しい値段に変わっています。ジェシカさん、太っ腹~!(このブログを読んだ後)良かったらチェックしに行ってみて下さい!

I used the color combination from SCS Color Combination challenge 187.
Since I had the set, I had a vision of curved pumpkins with using some of the images from the set, but I don't own the perfect pumpkins....so I made them myself with using stencil and masking techniques.
I used the oval punches from Stampin' Up! to make the stencils and masks.
For the vine, I used the tree stamps in the set.

Stampin' Up!から出ているオーバルパンチを使って、ステンシルとマスキングを作りました。

Here is the step by step for the stenciled pumpkin....

1. Punch the post-it with the oval punch and make 1 stencil and 2 masks

2.Place the oval stencil on the cardstock
and color inside the oval with the sponge and orange ink

3.Take off the stencil
and place the one of the oval mask on the colored oval.

4. Put the negative sheet with placing down to the right from the masked oval like the photo
and color inside stencil with the ink and the sponge.

5. Take off the stencil again
and cover the colored oval with another oval mask
(Keep the first oval mask under the second one)

6. Repeat the same manner of #4 and color the inside stencil

7. This is what the pumpkin looks so far
Repeat the same manner from #3 to #6 for the other half of the pumpkin

8. This is the finished pumpkin

Stamps: Spooktacular Halloween (There She Goes)
Paper: tangerine tango, kiwi kiss, chocolate chip, whisper white (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: tangerine tango, kiwi kiss, chocolate chip, summer sun (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: ribbon (Michael's)

I hope you enjoy my easy breezy tutorial :) This card is going to be up Jessica's Week In Review on Sunday. You have a chance to win the one of the cards that TSG Design Team made this week!! Don't forget to check Jessica's blog about the detail this Sunday!
I will see you here tomorrow :)

簡単なチュートリアルですが、良かったら参考にして下さい。このカードは、日曜日に、There She Goesのウィークインレビューにアップされる予定です。TSGのデザインチームが作ったカードの一枚が、貰えるチャンスもあります。是非、日曜日にジェシカさんのブログに行って、詳細をチェックしてください!!

Inspiration from Harrilu

Oh no!! I totally forgot to upload this card from SCS Inspiration challenge 148!
The challenge is to use the inspiration from Harrilu.
I used the red t-shirt for the inspiration. As you can see, the design and colors are pretty much like the shirt, which I really like.
I stamped the spiral flowers with Palette noir black. And I stamped the butterflies and the dotted lines with white craft ink. The sentiment were stamped with VarsaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I'm glad I embossed the sentiment because the words just popped out from the card.
The photo is a little too bright. The red color in IRL is richer than the photo.


Stamps: Spiral Bouquet, Butterfly Kisses, Little Lady (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: basic black, real red (Stampin' Up!), white cardstock (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: whisper white (Stampin' Up!), Palette noir black (Superior), VarsaMark (Tsukineko)
Accessories: ribbon (Hobby Lobby), white embossing powder (Stampin' Up!)

I have to run the couple errands. I will be back for more cards later. Thank you for stopping by~

The snowman and bird image was colored with Copic markers. I stamped the swirl and added the rhinestones. I am thinking to make more like this for this year's Christmas cards.

I stamped and trimmed the small flowers. And I attached them on the background. I added some rhinestones on the all flowers and the both sides of the sentiment.

When I read about the challenge, I smiled and took out creamy caramel cardstock.
I'd like to credit this card's idea to my fellow TSG DT member, Bev(BevMom). When I saw her man's card, I'm not joking, I fell from the chair! Since then, I was waiting to make the one and it was the time!!
Bev generously shared her tutorial on her blog. The title is "The Man card Tutorial"
Thank you so much, Bev!

I followed her tutorial from top to bottom. I changed the pants for Halloween design. You know I had a great time to make it, hehehe.

I made this card for WCMDCC08 -- Color Challenge, Lemon Lime Twist.
The colors are Orange-lemon, lime green and dark gray. I thought the color combo would be perfect with this House Mouse Halloween stamp :)
I colored the adorable pumpkin mouse with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I also added H2Os for shading. I used the Halloween embossing folder for the background and attached the green border and the ribbons diagonally. The circle clips with the bows, the sentiment and the brads are just extra materials to look this card cuter.

They all attached with brads for the secure and I added the buttons for the decoration.
I used the embossing folder for the background and colored the embossed image with the dauber. I added the ribbons and the sentiment panels for the final touch.
I really love how the card turned out and it was a very easy and fast to make it. I'm thinking I will make the same one for my Christmas cards, too :)

As Dee's challenge, I was supposed to make a holiday card but I really wanted to ink this daisy stamp set from KSS. I used the warm autumn colors and made the card for Thanksgiving time.

The dry embossed panel was distressed with the sand block.

I put the rhinestones on each bumps of the scalloped circle panel.
Very simple but I really love how it turned out :)

WCMDIC08 -- Inspiration challenge, to use Coldwater Creek catalog as a inspiration
KSS Lori's WCMD challenge
-- Make a holiday card with using yellows, oranges and browns.

Isn't this squirrel adorable? This is also from KSS. As soon as I read Lori's challenge, I had this cute squirrel in my mind :) I don't know this is called Holiday card, but it would be nice for Thanksgiving, I think. I took the inspiration from layout of the catalog and the leaves.
I stamped the background with the acorn stamp. The stamp is also 3 step stamps but I just used 2 steps to look softer. I adhered the orange border and attached the ribbon with the metal accent. For the center panel, I stamped 2 different colored leaves with 3 step stamps. I also paper pierced the corners and attached the brads. The stamped and trimmed squirrel was mounted on the corner of the center panel.

インスピレーションチャレンジ、Coldwater Creekのカタログをインスピレーションに使う
KSS Lori's WCMD challenge

このリス、すごく可愛いでしょ?Loriさんのチャレンジを読んだ直後に、このリスのイメージが頭に浮かびました^^ ホリデーカードとは、少し違うかもしれませんが、サンクスギビング辺りに送ってもいいカードだと思います。インスピレーションは、カタログのレイアウトと、葉を使いました。

What?! No Embellies?!!

Hello everyone~
Did you notice that this card is anything different? Since you already saw the title of today's post, you probably figured it out. Yes, I didn't use any embellisments -- no brads, ribbons, prima flowers, buttons, rhinestones, etc.
Why did I make this card with no embellies? Because this card was for Limited Supplies challenge 188 -- NO EMBELLISHMENTS!

The good thing was that we were allowed to use paper related things like paper piercer, nesties, punches, crimper, cardstock, designer papers, ink, markers, pens, cuttlebug, etc.

今日のカードは、どこかいつもと違います。それは、何でしょうか?多分、タイトルを読んで、もうお気づきだと思いますが、何とこの私が、ブラッド、リボン、プリマのお花、ボタン、ラインストーンなどのエンベリッシュメントを一切使っていません!何でエンベリを付けないカードを作ったかというと、リミットサプライチャレンジ188 - ノーエンベリッシュメントで作ったカードだったからです。


This image from Magnolia was colored with Copic markers a few days ago, and she's been staring at me since then :) I finally decided to make a card with her.
I punched out the oval and scalloped oval with Nestabilities. For the front of the card, I trimmed the card base and punched the border with the decorated scallop border punch. I also used the Cuttlebug die for the decorated photo corners.

I decorated the inside of the card with the dp, the mushroom borders that were colored with Copic markers, and the sentiment. The sentiment panel is also used for keeping the card from opening.

Magnoliaの女の子のイメージは、2-3日前にコピックマーカーで色付けしたままで、それから、ずっと彼女に見つめられていました(*^_^*) なので、彼女を使ってカードを作る事にしました。


Stamps: Tilda, mushrooms, sentiment (Magnolia Stamps)
Paper: baja breeze, chocolate chip, really rust, designer papers (Stampn' Up!), watercolor paper (Strathmore)
Ink: Brilliance (Tsukineko), chocolate chip, more mustard (Stampin' Up!), Copic markers (.Too), white gel pen (Uni-ball)
Accessories: CB decorated corners (Provo Crafts), border punch (Martha Stewart), other punches (Stampin' Up!) Nestabilities (Spellbinders)

I will post the 2 winners for the blog candy tomorrow! I hope you will have a wonderful World Card Making Day!!

WT186 -- Love Is Like a Butterfly

I made this card for Way To Use It challenge 186. The challenge is to use a poem or quote in your project. As soon as I found what the challenge was, I grabbed Butterfly Happiness set started stamping, lol.
The card is folded in half and folded in half again for the front card only.

このカードは、Way To Use Itチャレンジ186で作ったものです。今回は、詩、慣用句などを使って、作品を作るチャレンジです。どんなチャレンジかわかった後、直ぐにButterfly Happinessセットを取り出し、スタンプをし始めました(笑)

Here is when the card is opened

The butterfly images were stamped with Brilliance and colored with Copic markers. I attached them and the quote panel on the stamped backgrounds.
The ribbon is used to keep the card from opening. I also colored the flower to match with the butterflies :)

I'm Here For You

This card is made with Here For You set.
This is the one of my favorite color combos and I thought it would be great for the set.

I stamped the bird on the branch with chocolate chip and cut out with Nesties. And I sponged the panel. On the card base, I stamped the stems with brush blossoms and little birds with chocolate chip. And I also sponged around the edge.
I attached the ribbons, the sentiment panel with flowers and the decorated photo corners.

このカードは、Here For You セットを使いました。

From this Sunday she is starting the Week in Review (WIR) with the Design Team, and she is going to show the project(s) the each DT member made that week.

Give Thanks

Hello, everyone~
It's a beatuiful day here. I just love the crisp air in mornings and the cool tempreture in evenings this time of the year.


Today's card was used SCS Sketch challenge 196. I flipped the sketch to fit the stamped image.
I love the sketches that work the either direction.

The sunflower image were colored with Stampin' markers and watercolor brush. And colored over the image with VarsaMark pen. And I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then, I colored the background with the sponges.
The sentiment was stamped and the panel was colored with the sponge.
Since the sketch has 3 panels, I added 3 clips, ribbons, brads to keep the balance :)


ヒマワリのイメージは、Stampin' マーカーと水彩筆で色付けし、ヴァーサマークペンでイメージ全体をなぞり、クリアエンボスパウダーでヒートエンボスしました。それから、バックグランドをスポンジで色付けしています。

The more you enter, The more chance to win!
