Vintage Card

I have always wanted to try to make a vintage card. Last night I was thinking about it and then I look through some blogs, and suddenly I see there is a blog that having this challenge. The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC 39 is having the 'Dublin Style'. I see there are so many talented ladies post their cards so impressively. I would love to play along, so I pick the soft colors in this challenge.

I distress the card by using chalk color. I colored the birds and flowers with Copics color. The flower scallop is punched to decorate as part of the background. I use stamp Hero Arts for the birds and flowers and background on the script; Inkadindo stamp for the left bird and the leaves as background.

Thanks for reading and staying. Happy crafting ladies! :)

Lucky pinwheel

I was too excited with another participation with good idea of 'pinwheel' topic in the Card blog.
Supplies used:
BasicGrey paper
Dolly Scallop ready made paper
Cut rounded cardstock with measurement 8 cm diameter
Hero Arts Polka Dot stamp
Foam as the 'pin'
Inkadinkindo stamp (Birds with flowers)
Cuttlebug embossing template
Spellbinder label one (smallest size)
Handwriting sentiments

Something happen onto my Sizzix Big Shot with the handle got stuck and cannot be rotated. I am so sad  and frustrated that I have to wait for the replies from Sizzix Company about my machine. I am a careful user with no hard core, but how can this happen? I just wish that I can get fast reply from them to resolved this unwanted matter. I love embossing and never use it for cutting. I hope I will be always lucky and perfectionist with no problem and things can be solved happily. Can anyone share with me about your experiences?

Thanks for any wonderful experience shared and dropping by to read with comments. Your words make my day better.

Wonderful morning Sunday!

Happy Sunday Morning! I slept early last night and woke up this early Sunday morning about 630am. Looking at my piece of this 'Precious Moment with Smile' and went for a jog, stretch and a great workout for myself.
Let's come back to card-making. I am playing over the Cardabilities Sketch #7 that just came out on 15th July 10. So excited with the sketch. I took a few numbers of different brand stamps such as Hero Arts, American Craft, Stamp Anonymous by Tim Holtz, Tuesday's stamp. Not to miss, EK Success Scallop border puncher, Martha Stewart edge heart puncher, Cuttlebug embossing template polka dots on the cardstock. As always, I love to make my own flower.
Thanks for staying and reading.

What's World's interest now after World Cup 2010 gone?

World Cup 2010 has over now and nothing much sparkle any current issues at this moment. It was a world fever of football for the past two weeks. Even the fortune teller bird and Paul, the octupus were asked to predict the winner of World Cup 2010, and there, Paul managed to predict correctly. It's an amazing that how in the world that an octupus can predict so so accurately. Yet, Paul managed to guess so precisely for the past 6 World Cup 2010 games. Is he a God that comes out as an octupus? Or scientificly, what kind of chemical does it own? Oh, nobody knows, it was just too unusual that amazed whole wide world. Now, everybody goes back to the normal routine life.

Anyway, this is my first entry to Cardabilities at Sketch #6. I am  so fond of making cards, even in my dream during my sleep is on ..well quite frequent. So I play with my new Hero Arts stamp (one of my favourite stamps range) with Martha Stewart edge heart punch and decorative scissors. I also did one red stretch line of hand sewing, not easy and really takes so much of labour time, ooohh. However, I felt that at least something 'real' appear on this card..with a real string, and I felt so complete with it.
So here it is with my card for my colleague who is leaving soon . Gotta get working now otherwise I will not finish my 'must' job then. Thanks for dropping by and do come again.

So many thoughts!

I recently have so many thoughts in my mind to take part in many events, and you know what..all are my hobbies. The events are the singing competition, art drawing and sketch contest, baking classes,cooking classes and never forget the cardmaking event giveaways. I am so excited that all my weekends for the coming 8 weeks are so fully occupied. But my poor hubby has to take care of my son during that time..I guess he will be okay with that..
So back to my blogging of this subject is that I am taking part for the Papier Blog Contest that is the challenge to create a layout and a matching cardmaking. I have been turning around my head and trying to get some visualisation on the layouts and matching card. There goes with my my family portraits and the matching card on the top.
Gotta go to bed now and it's about 1.30am in the morning..about 7 more hours to work.
Thanks for dropping by and night night!
