Holiday Card #12

Hi there!

It has been a while since my last update. My cousins and a good friends of mine were visiting me over the weekend and my mother arrived beginning of this week.I always like visitors. Luckily we always have friends and family coming and staying overnight:)

This morning, when I looked out the window, everything was covered by snow. Yes, winter has finally come and the fluffy flakes of snow is drifting down from the heavens the whole day. It’s a perfect day to spend time in my scrapbook room again. Today I made a holiday card using my new Martha Stewart Stamp Around the Page stamp set. I purchased it in October but never got a time to really use it.

Holiday Card 10#

Hi there!

Today I made this card for Christmas Card challenge from Craftyhazelnut. I have to make a Christmas Card for man or boy. I was thinking of making one for a man. More masculine and simple. Luckily I found this pretty patterned paper from Prima Marketing. It’s from North Country which I think fits. I chose to use round clips from American Craft as embellishment.

Feeling so Incredibly Blessed

Hi everyone!

Today I watched  a Japanese Drama. Iki mo Dekinai Natsu. Apparently, there is a law in Japan which states that if a child is born between a couple where the wife had been in a prior marriage less than 300 days ago, the child will be registered under the prior husband’s family register even if DNA tests prove that the child is that of the new couple. So, because of this rules and for some reasons, some mothers don’t register their children. This makes it difficult for the children because they don’t have citizenship to their own country, thus they cannot have ID card, passport, health insurance, etc. I wonder if the law still exists.

Today’s card will be a thank you card I made a few weeks ago.

Supplies:

Solid Card Stock:  Kraft Cardstock (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper:  Splash Collection (Echo Park)
Stamps: Flower Fussion #2, Turning a New Leaf, Counting My Blessing (Papertrey Ink)
Dies: Flower Fussion #2, Friendly Flower, Rickrack Border (Papertrey Ink), Framelits Dies Series Circle (Sizzix)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Versamark
Miscellaneous: Button, Copic Multiliner, Scalloped Punch (Fiskars), Twine Winter Wonderland (My Mind’s Eye).

Christmas Card Series

Image

This is the first time I’ve ever made a Card Series. I had this idea when I was in the hospital. The first night I was at home, I wasn’t able to fall asleep. I had so many card ideas in my mind. So I decided to finish these card yesterday night. Once I had stamped the images and colored them, it didn’t take long to make 6 cards.

ImageImage

For these cards I used again Kraft Cardstock from Papertrey Ink and patterned papers from “Everybody Loves Christmas” collection from Echo Park. My hands were still shaking when I made these cards. It was so hard to make the stitches around the circle. I am so happy that they came out so pretty. I think there are very very cute:)

Owl I Need For Christmas Is You

Image

Hi everyone!

I am very happy today because I could finished 7 cards since I arrived home yesterday! This one is the most time consuming. As you see, I made the owl from scrap papers. I thought of putting it to the challenge week from Simon Says Stamp. The challenge was “Stamping without Ink”. Lets see whether I still can submit it.

Image

Almost the papers I used are from “Everybody Loves Christmas” collection from Echo Park. The words for the sentiment I chose was from a stamp I saw once in an online shop. I really enjoyed making this card. Probably because I didn’t get in touch with papers and scissors for the last 5 days:)

Holiday Card #5

Today I didn’t make any card. No inspiration. I tried to make a card using Scarlet Jewel Cardstock from Papertrey ink, but it didn’t come out good. I couldn’t even finish the card. I guess I am not a purple person. I do like purple sometimes, but somehow I don’t have a good feeling how to combine this purple cardstock with paper from my stach. I will try again later. It’s a challenge for me!

Image
So, here is the card I want to share with you today. I made it a week ago. I like the combination of the color. For the background, I took patterned paper from Reflection collection (Prima Marketing) and I combine it with a more colorful paper from Echo Park collection (the trees).

Holiday Card #4

Image

Another Holiday card! This time I used Simply Chartreuse Cardstock from Papertrey Ink and stamped it with Santa stamp using the same color to get tone in tone effect. Hm…I don’t have much to tell about this card. For me, this card has a classical sketch design. I’m not even sure whether this term exists:) Just remember, I am new in this scrapbook world.

Holiday Card #3

ImageThis  time I have a sweet little shaker card to share using my new Winter Snow Globe set from Papertrey Ink. I had never made a shaker card before, so it took quite a bit of time until I could figure out how to do it best. I should probably have looked for the tutorial in Youtube. I am sure you can find one, maybe even from Papertrey Ink channel itself. Anyway, I tried to do it my way and since the world of die cuts became huge in paper crafting, it makes things easier than ever before.

I filled the shaker card with iridescent glitter and shaved ice from Stampendous and I chose the cute snowman to sit inside the snow globe.
