Day 1...

Here it is...

Day 1 of my Christmas Card Marathon!

Card #1 white and brown cs, I airbrushed with copic marker G14 apple green, I used amuse stamps (tree lots and holiday combo). Then color up with other green copics, and add some *light* with my Spica pens.

So simple! :-D

Card #2

My Outline Stamps, such a pretty ornament. The paper is from DCWV "The Luxury Stack", grey cs. Pastel blue embossing powder, lots of *blings* and glitz stickles in champagne.

I got the Crafty Kitty Stamps set from Pink Cat Studio a few weeks ago... I am hooked on this stamps too! They are so cute, just like my other favorite stamps (Pink Poison, MFTs, Unity, Amuse, Lizzie Anne, and CTMH)... my collection is growing! Hehe. :-)
Got to start making christmas cards and christmas shopping! WOW, it's less than one month away...

Doing the happy dance!

OMGosh... I won! I am doing the happy dance, jumping up & down... I am just gone bananas laughing and being silly, I feel like a kid on Christmas morning. I never won anything before, I am soooo excited!
Here is another Anya card that I made last night, after a great thankful turkey dinner. I colored Anya with my favorite Copic markers, and of course, we need some glitter. I used my other favorite thing -Gelly Roll Stardust clear pen.

Happy Turkey Day!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I think thanksgiving is one of my favorite holiday.... good eats, do I have to say more! And plus, family and friends get together and have a great time! Maybe a friendly competition of Wii bowling after dinner. FUN!


Pardon for some of my older post, the pictures might be blank... I was trying to be good and was organizing my photo album. I was deleting photos... but I didn't know that they linked to the blog! I am fixing now... should be done in a few days.... My bad! I learned my lesson! LOL.

Here is a card that I made when I was complaining =D I used the twisted sentiment from mft...

Anya ATC Swap.

My Guitar Anya! She is so sweet, adorable, and cute. Or should I say: "She Rocks!" Pink Poison upgraded the size of this ATC to 3.5"x 5.5". Such a fun ATC... I used all my favorite things... pretty paper, twinkling H2O, flowers, glitter, and copic markers.

Baking away...

Rain is gone, sun is out! :-) Baking away... getting ready for the big TURKEY DAY! We are not much of a pie family... but we love chocolate chip cookies. Okay, we will have one pie, hehe! :-D

Here is my card for the Amuse Home Page Contest. We have to define WARMTH.... This is a tough one. I went back and forth, between coffee cups, snowman, cupcakes and etc. I find this stamp "daydreamer". I think it's heartwarming, she is thinking about you during christmas.

This is my amuse weekly challenge #70 entry "colorful holidays", holiday cards with non-traditional colors! What a great idea... I like red and green, but it's nice for a twist!

A lovely rainy day!

Rain, rain, and more rain today... according to the TV, it is also very windy. I quess it's better than the bitter cold weather. I have a day off today... a perfect day to craft, have a cup of hot cocoa, simple lunch (don't know yet!) ...I want to catch up with some of my new stamps, maybe do a few challenges... off to the crafty world I go! :-)

Same Blog, New Look...

I got a new look for my blog... Go Green instead of Pink, pink, and pink! When I was testing and changing blogskin, I lost all of gadgets, my favorite websites, blogs, counters, etc.... I think I have everything back to normal now.... LOL!

Today is a Scrap Box Day! I like to try to make something out of all my scraps... I love this stamp set from Unity... it's super cute!

You are in my thoughts...

I made this card for my cousin in Australia, she is such a sweet lady. Unfortunely she is fighting stage 4 cancer, it's so sad... Bad things always happens to good people. I am hoping that this card will at least bring her a smile. You are certainly in my thoughts.... love always! XOXO.
On a lighter note, I finally got to play with new stamps, so exciting! I love my new Anya stamps, she is super cute... I want to collect them all! This is first attempt after a tired day from work. TFL.

My new stamps from Pink Poison (cute cute Anya) and a bunch of Unity Stamps... Hurray! I can't wait to play with them. So sad that I am so sleepy... if not, I will definity make something.... zzzz.... until tomorrow... I am so going to dream about my new stamps. LOL.

Today is even colder than yesterday! Brrr..... I had a lovely day off, went shoe shopping, had lunch with my good friend, played some Wii Fit, surf the web, and craft. Just perfect! Here is the Pink Cat Studio stamp set that I brought yesterday. She is so sweet and sassy! Totally love it.

Double it up...

Winter is finally here... it was cold and windy! It is just perfect to stay in our pjs with bunny slippers and craft all day... ummm... that sounds really good! I can't believe that turkey day is next week!
Double the cards, double the fun... Both are from my favorite stamp companies... Amuse and Unity. In combination with my favorites copic markers, glitters, and other goodies... Life is good! I just got a new stamp set from Pink Cat Studio, super cute stamps, can't wait to try them out.... Off to make more cards...

"Me" time...

After a tough day at work, have to enjoy some "me" time, sitting at my craft area... Ahhh... so nice... I just received my Unity stamps November KOM, a full bag of super cute stamps, can't wait until to use everyone of them.

Enough talking... off to create!

Happy Monday!

Baked with love!

Here is my Amuse stamp of the week challenge #41.

I combined the new clear "baking set" stamps with mb girl bear.

Off to make some cards... I have to relax a bit, I have been trying to fix layout, add watermark on my pictures, and finding a way to add "smiley faces", and the whole blog things are driving me bananas...

Saturday, November 15, 2008

I got to meet the Amuse's celebrities...

Oh my... What an exciting day!

Linda, owner of Amuse and Julie, creative team designer came to the Papertree at Manchester, NH. And I have the chance to take one of the their amazing classes, "Simply Sensational", it was a great class. Here are the 5 awesome cards that we made. Both Linda and Julie are so sweet, and they are such great instructors. Thank you Linda and Julie!

I even got a picture with them. I am so lucky...

Masculine card is always a challenge!
But I think this is not too bad...

Just a bit plain... but can't add any flowers or glitter. LOL. But I love this stamp from Amuse.

I am so excited that it's finally the weekend. Tomorrow's post is going to be good, I promise...

Thursday, November 13, 2008

Just one more day!

It has been a long week...

Hurray, it's Friday tomorrow... Love this stamp set from Amuse, it's so true!

"with enough caffeine, anything is possible!"

Stamping with my CTMH stamps...

Happy Wednesday! I'm excited... 2 more days until the weekend.

So, if you don't already know... my favorite stamp companies are Amuse, unity and mftstamps. But one of my good friend is a CTMH consultant, so I also have lots of those stamps too, and I missed using them. Today card sketches challenge at SCS, I was just thinking which stamps to use... I found my perfect CTMH set for it! XMas card it is... (too bad, once halloween is over, xmas music started to play everywhere... but what happened to thanksgiving?) I quess I have to make some more fall/thanksgiving things...

As promised...

Here is my cupcake card! As promised... I airbrushed the white cardstock with 2 different shade of copics markers (cerise and sugared almond pink), then I punched and added a bunch of goodies... tada! So simple, but looks very yummy!

Dots, dots, and more dots...

He is such a stud muffin! I made this card for the Amuse weekly challenge "You're sweet!" Cupcakes is so hot these days!
I can't wait to the new CUPCAKE set...
For some funny reasons, I am totally into dots and 2 sided ribbons (which I brought them at the Papertree, my LSS) these days. I was trying so hard not to use those ribbons on this card, and I did it! I used a sheer ribbon instead... heheeee... Yeah, but I will probably use the other ribbon again on the next card. LOL.

~thinking~ I need to make a cupcake card... stay tune!

I had BIG plans!

So, what a day!

I had to work all day!! Not a good day but let's don't talk about it... it's over, who cares...

And the mft december guest challenge is open until 10pm... so I wanted to make more cool cards. I kept thinking all day...

Which stamp sets to use?

Watercolor pencils, twinkling H2O, or ink pad?

xyz? abc?

Once, I sat at my craft table... I was just as clumsy as I could be. Spilling water, coloring out of lines, Perfect pearl everywhere, lids and caps falling everywhere, and I dropped a whole bottle of pink fun flock all over me and the carpet. I can't help to just start LOL... So, I only came up with one, and only one special card. Hope you like it!

Saturday, November 8, 2008

To be challenge...

I love it... Another excuse to make a card! On the mft blog, they are looking for guest designer for December, so I figured to give it a try.

The challenge requirement: Watercolor!
Wow, I haven't touch my watercolor forever... I have gone crazy on my Copics and everything else... Thanks for a great opportunity, this cool waterpencils are BACK!

Friday, November 7, 2008

Happy Friday!!!

Hurray, weekend is almost here...

And everyone... Happy Unity Stamps Hip Hop Hangover Day! I figured to make another card with my KOM.

I want COOKIES! Off to baking...

Gone BANANAS with challenges!

It rain, rain, and rain... all day!

It is just perfect to hang out with a good friend and craft all day. I made tons of cards...

And I just remembered that today is Hip Hop Thursday at SCS, it is 8:55pm... I saw a Hip Hop challenge. I don't know why, but I decided to do the "one-layer" challenge in 5 minutes, it's not perfect, but hey... I stamped, colored, and loaded the card to SCS in 5 minutes...

I kept surfing at SCS Unity Stamps Forum... and there is another challenge, so here it is!

I realized I am totally insane about using my Copic Markers, I colored almost everything and I love airbrushing with them.

2 cards down!
I should try out for the "Amuse Addict Weekly challenge #67" too, why not?

Magical Butterfly/Fairy?

I am so excited about my day off tomorrow... Hurray!

So, there I am... just chilling at my corner with my computer and craft stuff. I found my Unity stamps september KOM... sitting here just staring at the stamps as usual, I found this cute fairy. And I made this card....

And of course, I have to surf on the www... and I saw the Unity Challenge Wednesday at SCS. Unfortunely, she is not a butterfly! Well, at least she has wings. LOL!

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

Got to chill!

Happy Tuesday! I'm glad that this whole election thing is over. No more political campaign commercials...
Have to make something... De-stress!

So, I made another card from the mft "twisted sentiment"...
hehe... And the second one, just plain adorable and sweet sweet flower child.
