Romantic Feel

After several months of paper crafting hiatus, I decided to come back with a card that I made for the 22nd Prakarya Kertas, Indonesian monthly paper craft challenge held by Dian Yustisia. This month’s challenge is “Romantic” it could be something related to romanticism and arts from that era, or could be any interpretation of romance.

Before my hiatus, I bought this very pretty colorful gingham patterned ribbon. I really want to incorporate this into the project, so I make a round shaped card with doily paper, put some buttons on it and make a bow with the ribbon as the center piece. I sand the sides of the card to add a vintage feeling to it. I like the result.


Sadly I can’t list the supplies because I don’t know the brand of these.

I got some excess punched flowers from the card I made before and I was inspired to make another one so here we go! This is my second entry for Dawn McVey’s Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #19.


Supplies :
Punches : Fiskars Threading Water Edge Punch, Carla Craft Petal 6 Flower Punch, EK Success Corner Rounder
Stamps : Mellisa Frances Crystal Clear Stamps, Hero Arts Wood Grain Design Block, Prima polka dot collage stamp, Basic Grey Flower Bitsy Stamp
Inks : Tsukineko Embossing Ink, Colorbox Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink
Papers : Brown Washi paper, random 100 yen paper, Kuretake Kolourboration (color: Koubai), Basic Grey Sultry 6×6 paper pad
Others : Signo White Gel Pen, Ranger Perfect Pearls in Turquoise, random buttons from my button collection

I made a very simple quick card for this challenge :

Even though honestly, it’s not quick at all figuring out what I wanted to do with these colors. It’s definitely not my comfort zone, and it’s a tough challenge! Personally, I love the heart button the most, it just matches the sentiment🙂

When I used the distressed polkadot stamps from Prima, it just remind me how much I wanted the papertreyink’s polkadot basics stamps. Sadly since I live faraway from the US, if I order from the papertreyink’s website, the shipping cost even more than the stamp itself😦

Supplies :
Punches : Fiskars Edge Punch, Carla Craft 6 Petal Flower, EK Success Corner Rounder, McGill Fancy Square Small
Stamps : Mellisa Frances Crystal Clear Stamps, Hero Arts Wood Grain Design Block, Prima polka dot collage

Green Wedding Card

My best friend was married last week on November 15. One of the disadvantage of being far from hometown is to miss a lot of weddings. And it made me sad. I made her a card, which I think is the least I can do for her. She loves anything green, even her wedding invitation was also green. So, inspired by her love of this color, I made her a super green wedding card. I know there are too many things going on on this card, but I quite like it. And finally I got to use my metal frame embellishment! It just finished up the card perfectly.

Small Happiness

It’s the time again! Dawn’s Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. Sadly I’m mistaken the challenge’s closing date *sigh*, so this doesn’t count as an entry, but it’s fun and the colors are beautiful so I did it anyway! For this challenge, again I’m using Hero Art’s Kraft Notecard (I think I need more of these!). And also still in my button craze moment, I decided to use *more* buttons for this project, and voilà! Here’s the card!



Supplies : Hero Arts Kraft Notecard, Hero Arts Clear Design Mix & Match Elements, Colorbox Chalk Chestnut Roan Inkpad, Basic Grey Sultry 6×6 paper pad, Basic Grey Bug Bitsy Stamps, Basic Grey Wild Flowers Stamps, McGill Fancy Square Paper Punch, Fiskars Upper Crest Edge Punch

Altered Clothespin

Ever since I’m obsessed with buttons again, I browse around Etsy for inspirations in using buttons for my crafts. So I bought a pack of wooden clothespin in 100 yen shop, the quality isn’t good, but I decided to use them anyway. I covered them with Japanese washi masking tapes. Put some buttons on top, voila, a brand new look is born!

Supplies : Wooden clothespins, masking tapes, buttons, embroidery threads
