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.

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

It’s time for the 19th Prakarya Kertas papercraft challenge! It’s a monthly online challenge for Indonesian paper crafters in multiply held by Dian Yustisia. This time the challenge is tough. Using these colors; orange, black, dark green, purple, which are basically halloween colors for a wedding themed papercraft! I was thinking to incorporate the corpse bride or something Halloween-y so that I have the legitimate reason to use these colors.

Then, I incorporate just the purple and the orange (and a little bit of black) to make a non-traditional wedding card and gift tags! And wow that was fun. My experiment proves that these colors doesn’t always have to be about Halloween.

Supplies : 12×12 Go For Baroque (imaginisce), 6×6 Wisteria (Basic Grey), 6×6 Ambrosia (Basic Grey), Kodomo no Kao Rakuraku Koubou Flower Punch (in 4L and 3L), Carla Craft paper punch, Distress Inks (Spiced Marmalade & Dusty Concord), Haunted Ribbon from Cosmo Cricket.

Cream, cream

Opposite to my sister, I happen to be a person who love colors so much. Too much maybe. I love everything around me to be as colorful as possible (it changed as I grow older, but I still love colors!). As in crafting, I often overdo things here and there. And I love to see many of scrapbook pages and cards which has anything possible in it, you know, scrapbook page circus with all the ribbons, gems, laces, chipboards, buttons, stamps, and anything else possible. I love them, I love embellishments, I love glitters and shimmers, and in the contrary, I found it hard to tone down and make something so simple and subtle without all that.

Yesterday when I open my old knitting box, I found some beautiful yarns and I tried to use them in my card. This is what I came up with :

Supplies : Hands Select Color Postcard, Hero Arts Mix and Match Elements, Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Antique Tag in Ivory, Opal White Liquid Pearl, doily paper and cotton lace.

Kanzashi Inspired Card

This card is inspired by Kanzashi, a Japanese ornamental hairpin. I love it, I thought it’s very unique, I was obsessed to learn how to make them but apparently it’s too complicated for me, so I recreate the shape for a card! I use Japanese pattern paper called “Washi” to strengthen the oriental image of the card. I use flower shaped paper punch to make the shape, and put some gems in the center as an accent.
