TSG Crafty Taglines

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I hope you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones.
No cooking for me this year!! My hubby and father-in-law are in New York for business and couldn't come home for Thanksgiving. They are going to have a dinner with their relatives who live in New York.
The rest of us have to go to my DD's cheerleader competition. The competition is going to be held tomorrow but we have to drive for 4 hours so we decided to leave this afternoon so I don't have to drive in the middle of night. I hope I can shop on line after I come back :)

The card is for yesterday's Sketch challenge (SC204) on SCS and TSG challenge (TSG01).

The stamp set is TSG brand new set, "Crafty Taglines" The set is so fun to play with and there are great quotes and sayings for stampers and crafters in the set! It's going to be available on Dec 1st.

I stamped the PC image and colored with Copic markers. Then I used the little heart stamp from another new set, "Year round Sentiments".
All the panels were cut with Lebels One Nestabilities.

Here is the inside:

The sentiment "Let's get together!" is from the another new set "Let's Get Together!"

Stamps: Crafty Taglines, Year Round Sentiments, Let's Get Together - inside (TSG)
Paper: pixie pink, pumpkin pie, kiwi kiss, pink pirouette, whisper white (Stampin' Up!), designer paper (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Palette noir black (Superior), pixie pink (Stampin' Up!), Copic markers (.Too)
Accessories: ribbons, brads (Stampin' Up!), Nestabilities (Spellbinders)

Thank you for stopping by. See you soon~



Hello everyone~
Don't you love this coffee mug? This image is from the brand new set, Let's Get Together from There She Goes. The set and other new stuff are going to release on Dec 1st. Jessica did another fabulous work for the all stamps!!

While you guys have to wait for the release, TSG is having the challenge week. The challenge is to create the inside of the card to match the outside. Please use the keyword TSG01.
All the participants who use TSG stamps for the challenge have a chance to win the one of the new stamp sets! For more information, please visit at Jessica's blog.

皆さん、こんにちは~ このコーヒーマグ可愛いでしょう~♪これは、There She Goesから新しくリリースされるLet's Get Togetherのスタンプセットからのです。このセットを含め、新しい商品は、アメリカ時間の12月1日に発売されます。Jessicaさんが、素敵なスタンプセットを又また用意してくれていますよ~!!

発売日を待っている間に、TSGで、チャレンジウィークを行っています。今回のチャレンジは、「カードのフロントに合わせて、中もデコレートをする」です。カードを載せる際、キーワードTSG01を使ってください。 TSGのスタンプを使ってチャレンジに参加した方は新しいスタンプセットをもらえるチャンスもあります! 詳しい内容は、Jessicaさんのブログに載っています。

I decided to join this fun and decorated the inside.

The color combo was used from SCS Color Combination challenge 194.
For the square panels on the fornt, I stamped the 2-step coffee bean stamps and sponged with really rust and basic gray. I drew the stitches and attached the brads.
I colored the inside of the coffee mug with chocolate chip marker. The ribbon is actually the back side. The front side has the cute circle borders but the colors are not what I wanted to use. I'm so glad the ribbon worked perfectly this way:)

私もこの楽しい企画に参加し、中をデコレートしてみました。 色のコンビは、SCSのカラーコンビネーションチャレンジ194を使っています。 カードフロントの正方形のパネルは、2ステップスタンプのコーヒー豆をスタンプし、really rustとbasic gray色をスポンジを使って色付けしました。その後、ステッチを書き、ブラッドを付けています。 コーヒーマグの中は、chocolate chipマーカーで色を塗っています。リボンは、実は裏側を使っています。表もサークルボーダーの可愛い柄なんですが、色があまりカードと合わなくて。。。でも、裏側が見事に使えたので良かった、良かった(嬉)

Stamps: Let's Get Together (TSG)
Paper: basic gray, very vanilla, designer paper (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: basic gray, really rust, chocolate chip marker (Stampin' Up!), gel pen (Uni-ball), black marker (EK Success)
Accessories: ribbon (American Crafts), brads (Bazzil)

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day! And have a happy Thanksgiving Day, everyone in the US!! (I just want to tell it just in case I don't come back here before Thursday)


Quick Cards for Holiday

Hello everyone~
The busiest time of the year is coming.... The time is more precious during the time. Usually I love to take a time to make each card. The coloring, layering, cutting detailed images...these are my favorite things to do for my cards. However, it is very difficult for me to take so much time if I'm going to mail the cards to all of my family and friends during the Holiday season. I also have to think about handling and mailing the cards carefully since many of them live overseas.

I made these cards for SCS challenges. I thought they were quick to make and safe to mail :)




SCS Way to Use It challenge 193 is to use pearls. As you see, the pearls are attached on the star image. I used Silent Night from PTI. This beautiful image could do all the work, but I used the decorative border and corner punch to make the card be more interesting :)

SCSのWTチャレンジ193は、パールを使うです。見ての通り、バールの粒を星のイメージに付けました。スタンプは、PTISilient Nightを使っています。綺麗なイメージが、このカードの出来上がりを全てしてくれたようなものですが、少しだけ演出の為、デコレートボーダーとコーナーパンチを使いました。

Stamps: Silent Night (PTI)
Paper: night of navy, basic gray, whisper white, designer paper (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: night of navy, whisper white (Stampin' Up!), Brilliance (Tsukineko)
Accessories: decorative border and punch (Fiskars), Nestabilities (Spellbinders)


SCS Inspiration challenge 155 is from the TV show "Mad Men". The show setting is 1960's and all the fashion & interior decors are definitely inspiring :)
I used the green dress that Bobby Barrett is wearing.

The stamps are from Tea for Two Special Blend by There She Goes. I also used "for" & "You" of the sentiment from Tea for Two set. I added Stickles on the candy canes for the glittery look of the dress and rhinestones for the jewelies.

SCSのIC155は、TVドラマ”Mad Men"を使ったインスピレーションチャレンジです。このドラマのセッティングは1960年代で、ファッションやインテリアなど、とても興味深いものが沢山あります。
今回は、Bobby Barrettが着ている緑のドレスをインスピレーションに使いました。

スタンプは、There She GoesTea for Two Special Blendを使っています。"for"と"You"は、Tea for Twoせっとの言葉の一部を使いました。ドレスのキラキラ感を真似て、キャンディーケーンにSticklesを付け、ラインストーンはジュエリーを真似て付けました。


Stamps: Tea for Two - sentiment, Tea for Two Special Blend (TSG)
Paper: riding hood red, garden green, whisper white (Stampin' Up!), designer paper (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: riding hood red, garden green (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: ribbon (PTI), rhinestones (Michael's), Stickles (Ranger), embossing folder (Provo Crafts), Nestabilities (Spellbinders), oval punch (Stampin' Up!)

I hope you like my quick cards. Have a nice day~


Feeling Square...

Hello everyone~
I made 2 square cards this week. The both cards are 4 1/2" x 4 1/2". I love making the size because it's not too small or big... just right for making and mailing :)
I also used the Cuttlebug decorative corners for the both cards. I love them!! I think they are so beautiful and great addition for cardmaking....not too big, not too small ;)

今週は、正方形のカードを2つ作りました。どちらも、4 1/2" x 4 1/2"のサイズです。このサイズは、作るのにも送るにも、小さくも無く大きくも無いサイズなので、気に入っています。

TLC195 and CC193

I combined 2 challenges - SCS Technique challenge 195 & Color Combination challenge 193. The triangle folding medalion is so fun to make! I hope everyone try it.
Did you notice anything unusal?
I didn't use any stamps or inks :0 I felt so strange not using them but I like how the card was turned out.

このカードは、2つのチャレンジ - SCSのテクニックラバーチャレンジ195カラーコンビネーションチャレンジ193をしました。三角に折って組み合わせたメダリオンは、作っていてとっても楽しかったです。是非、皆さんも挑戦してみてください。
スタンプ、インクを一切使っていません! スタンプ、インクを使ってなくて、何だか変な気持ちですが、カードの出来上がりは気に入っています。

Stamps: None
Paper: basic black, very vanilla, kraft, real red, designer paper (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: None
Accessories: flower (Prima), brad (Stampin' Up!), Cuttlebug die, embossing folder (Provo Crafts), ribbon (Hobby Lobby), Nestabilities (Spellbinders)


I made this card for SCS Sketch challenge 203. It is a very creative sketch as usual and I was so excited to play it. However, it took a longer time than I planned. Maybe because it was the first time for me to use the stamp set. I was struggling a little... I finally had a solution for the mittens -- paper piecing :)
The color combo was inspired by the colors on the designer paper - real red, old olive and baja breeze. I really love the combo for the Holiday cards.


Stamps: Scandinavian Season (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: real red, old olive, whisper white, designer papers (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: chocolate chip (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: brads (Stampin' Up!, JoAnn's), Cuttlebug die (Provo Crafts)

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great weekend~


Green Tea

Hello everyone~
I'm sorry I haven't been here for a while. I can't believe it's already Friday again!! I hate it when I have some ideas for the projects and don't have a time to make the ones.....
Not today! I finally made a time and sat down for ME time :)

ブログを更新していなくてスミマセン。サボっている間に、もう金曜日になってしまいました!! 色々アイデアが浮かんできているのに、つくる時間が無いのは、本当にもどかしいです。

Today's SCS challenge was Limited Supplies challenge 194 - All Acrylic! No problem! I have a lot of them ;)
I decided to use the stamps from There She Goes. My all time favorite tea is Green tea and my Japanese blood sat my mind to make the green tea card ;) I hope my Japanese friends are proud of me now {hugs}
I paper pieced the tea cup and cut the handle to make the Asian style cup.
The teabag was also made from the same designer paper with the cup and I put the green tea bag inside the bag. I think the tea bag made the card look more oriental :)

その中から、There She Goesのスタンプを使う事にしました。お茶の中で、1番好きなのはやっぱり緑茶。グリーンティーカードを作れ!と日本人の血が、心で訴えています(笑)同じ日本人の皆さんへ、今回のカードを捧げますね。

I decorated the inside of the card also.

Stamps: Tea for Two, Tea for Two Special Blend (TSG)
Paper: certainly celery, old olive, kraft , designer paper (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: chocolate chip, very vanilla (Stampin' Up!), white gel pen (Uni-ball)

I hope you will have a great weekend :)

Wendy made the gorgeous card with KSS Pansies set and I couldn't help using the same set for the cased card. I changed the color combo and stamps. I used the different embossing folder and the punches. I added Stickles on the pansies to give a little dimention.

Dollar Find Friday

Hello everyone~
It's Friday finally!! It's also my week for Dollar Find Friday!! Every Friday, the one of There She Goes Design Team shares the tutorial of the altered project with stuff where is found at the Dollar Store. You can find the all DFF projects at Jessica's blog, There She Goes.

I went to Dollar Tree and found the wooden box as shown bellow. It was calling me to alter, lol. I hope you will like my altered tea box.


wooden box
acrylic paints
designer paper
strong adhesive like sticky tape or glue dots
screw driver
die cuts, ribbons, copic markers (optional)

1. Disassemble the all hardware and set them aside.
Paint the wooden box with the acrylic paints. You probably have to paint a few times.

2. After the paint are dry, adhere the designer paper to the back of the lid.
The sticky tape works very well.

3. Stamp the images and color them if you like.
(I used Brilliance ink and Copic markers.)

4. This is how I decorated the lid.

5. Decorate inside & outside of the box as you like.
(I wrapped the ribbon around the box and added the sentiments.)
Reassemble the box and insert the tea bags.

I hope you like my altered tea box tutorial. If you have any questions, e-mail me anytime :)
Thank you for stopping by. Have a great weekend!


Tea For Two

Hello everyone~
The last weekend was so busy and I didn't even had a time to sit down to read my subscribed blogs. Now I have 500+ new blogs to read...... Maybe I need to drink green tea while I read them :)

Speaking of drinking tea, There She Goes released the new stamp sets, Tea for Two and Tea for Two Special Blend!! I'm a big coffee & tea drinker and I looooove the darling images from the sets! I'm sure you will see my creations with using the sets again and again and...again!

The card is also for SCS Technique Lover's challenge 193. The challenge is to make a decorative circle medallion. I used Wrought Iron corner slot for the technique.
The teapot and cups were colored with Copic markers. I stamped the words diagonally on the background. I love making an original background with stamps! Sometimes it takes a time but I always enjoy the result :)
