I won my First Place on Hero Arts Challenge

I wanna blog this since my first won on Unexpected Colors challenge 5 weeks ago.. Here is my winning card.. At that time I chose friday's color combo: soft robins egg-purple-pink-green-turqoise blue to make this birthday card for my dear friend Mary who will celebrate her 55th on Nov 25. I did not have any internet connection at that time and I only take a note for the color combo from what i saw in office. Even i'm not sure what is the turqoise color. When i uploaded to HA pool, and saw other cards are holiday theme, I realized I made a mistake. I'm so ashame and willing to off my tag but then I saw Tiffany already left one. So I thought let it be.. maybe maybe nobody knows my mistake.. And then a week later, I'm so surprised when I got called from Vera. She said I won.. woow can't believe it my card got recognized. Supplies: HA stamps: CG114, CL340, LP156 and HA digi-friendship definition. Ink: memento black and distress ink shabby shutters. Paper: local cardstock, PP, vellum. Embellishment: gingham ribbons, string, gems, and paper flowers. Colored with copics sketch. Now, I got surprised again when I got another call from Vera.. My card is honoured as first place in 2010 Catalogs Sneak Peak Challenge.. I'm so thrilled, Lisa Spangler choose my card among so-many-wonderful-entries in the pool last week.. I do believe in miracle.. This is a Christmas miracle for me.. I created this card based on Lisa's sneek peak#6, i love her color combo, all cute girls in Sweet Wonderful You set. Even i love her frame shape and decided to make my own frame shape... I only use CL357-holiday dolls set, stamps all the snowflakes to create the background, colored the dolls with copics, paper piecing and layers the doll's outfit 2-3 times.. At last i drew the hair line in her piggy tail with copics, so sorry if my photo could not show it clearly here. This card will be sent to my special friend which always support me with her warm emails. She loves pink and so cute like this doll.. Supplies: HA stamps: CL357-holiday dolls Paper: all from my stash Ink: memento dark cocoa Colored with copics sketch, white dotted by Sakura souffle pen from Vera (Thanks Vera!!) Embellies: gems, glitters and nail polishjavascript:void(0) I can't wait to see the reveal of all 2010 Hero Arts Stamps today on blog hop.. Thank you Hero Arts, and all my Hero Arts friends.. you're all so talented, so kind, so generous and I learnt a lot from all of you. I'm so lucky I found this group and being part of it.. it feels like I found my home. So thank you from the bottom of my heart.. :)

birthday tag

When i saw the HA challenge "tags" on Monday, i think this is perfect for creating simple card for my best friend's son.. So i make this card using my scrap papers.. and use my Robot stamp (as i knew that boy loves robot). I knew he love tank but i don't have any car or tank stamp, so i just use my on hand stamp.. :) I would love to color it with my new copic but i still not sure and worry that it will bleed like the previous image. So instead of trying my copics, i colored it with my prismas.. i do love my prismas.. they are creating gorgeous color ;) I use masking technique while stamping the cloud and hill on my white scallop paper. Then I stamped the robot on orange paper so i just colored the edge and add more shading on the edge, cut it and attached it into my scallop circle paper. I cut little tag with happy sentiment on light blue paper and give it a faux stitching and put it on little guy's hand with lil orange ribbon. I layered my scrap paper from dark blue-orange-light blue and the last is my scallop circle with robot image and add gems for last touch.. :) I'm so happy i can finished it on 2 hours, this is my fastest card i've ever create.. (you know i'm very slow at crafting.. usually it take a whole day to finish just one card) Enjoy my card and have a wonderful day!

blog candy

Come and visit our friend Beverley's blog here She created wonderful monochromatic card as a thank you card for i heart Hero Arts blog hop. Also giving us these yummy eye candy.. Thanks for your generousity Bev.. ;) Hugs, Fika

celebrate with style

It's so hard for me to create a monochromatic card, so i decide to play with my stamp using my favorite color "pink".
For the bottom card i cut my pink pp following QK's pattern, using my raindrop stamp and tsukineko moonlight white i stamp on it and cover the edge with pink lace.
I stamp the dress twice at white cardstock and distress it a bit using my pink colorbox ink, and once again at vellum, i cut the vellum and use only one piece from waist to the bottom and attach it into my white cardstock.. Then i add gems, flowers and stickle pink, and last i twine the fuchsia ribbon and place it on the waist.
I add more embellies (fuchsia flower and dotted pink-butterfly, i applied Laura's technique added the flower bud as my butterfly antenna).
At last i stamp the sentiment "Celebrate with style".
Also submitted to caardvarks challenge here.. hope it meets with bridal shower theme ;)
HA supplies: K5112, S5101, S5218, CL139
Embellies: wire, lace, ribbon, flower, gem, pom2, brad.

Window card..

Just finishing another window card today.. :)
I combined both shaker, acetate and curtain in my card.. (actually this is my first stamping on acetate).. I used my new stamps one from my winning on HA blinkies giveaway CL273 (i care message) stamped on acetate using Black StazOn.. and S5099 (design block misty swirl pattern) from Gaby as background i stamped on white cardstock using Limone Tsukineko..
I cut greenie stripe cardstock (try to made a window) and stick it with an acetate.. and add the CL273 stamped acetate, fill the inside with some beads..
The hardest thing is placing the curtain on my window.. i choose eyelets to join between the curtain & acetate window & the background cardstock.. This also my first try on using eyelets.. ;)
I change the knot twice, first using the yellow thread coz i can't find my green one.. then after looking deeply on my stuffs finally i found my green ribbon, i change it and love the whole appearance after changing.. ;)
Thanks for peeking.. ;)

1st spinner card

Today i made a spinner card.. yaayy.. i did it!!
A week ago when i browse on Deborah site, i'm so interested with her card and asked her how to made the spinner card..
She is so sweet & telling me about video
After watching the video twice, i really want to create it myself.. however i need to wait until weekend first before starting the card.. But I carried my stamps everyday to my office, so i could stamp the mouse & bike after my working hours (usually late at nite) & my office quite empty... ;O) However I had some confusion how to make the bike, fortunately Vera helps me with sending the bike pics (arigato Vera-san!!) So i made the wheels of bike with combination of several stamps: CL139,CL297,CL275.
I woke up early this morning and started stamping as i'm too excited to create a spinner card. I tried to use as much as tiny stamps in my cards.
The elephant, mouse, grasses, and sentiment are using CL280.
Heart balloons & leaves are using CL272.
Flowers & ladybug are using CL261
I also put some embelishment gems & MS punch fence from Vera, making memories ribbon & ink by Tsukineko. I use 2 tiny coin and attached it at the back of the wheels and it really worked!! my card can spin.. yoohooo..
At noon, I got a call from Vera, she said that i won the HA blinkies giveaway.. woow i'm so surprise & very happy as i never won any candies or giveaways before..
Thank you Hero Arts.. thank you all of my friends.. i really enjoy stamping.. and find lots of fun on it... ;)
TFL gals.. ^__^
