Magnolia card - Oval shape & doily embossing

It's Saturday here, in Indonesia ....
Happy weekend everyone :))
I have my time to made an oval shape card with my Tilda, and that was inspired by TOMIC's theme this week, i wish my lucky this time .. LOL
but anyway i love this challenge as i am not usual made an oval shape for my base card.
because they want to see some emboss on the card, so i did a heat embossing with doily stamp.

after choosing my DP and coloring my Tilda, i did the hot embossing first before i cut it with dies

i always love to put beautiful ornament for my card, especially when i made my card with Magnolia

and i loved to tied some lace, pearl chain and ribbons ... for the confetti on Tilda's flower i put some platinum stickles and opal white pearl liquid

finally, this is my oval shaped card  .. decorated the edges with doohikeys old Swedish lace
and i stamped a simple sentiment that means so much to me ;)
and hope so this is can be fit for :
Sentimental Sundays - Die cut 
4CC - Pins

thank you for stopping here and have a great weekend :)

this is the front of my Cupid card, tied with White seam binding ribbon and decorated with my cute Cupido
I have no put a sentiment because my DP - Yours Truly from Echo Park was describe all the way a cupid job ... :D
if you saw the holes around the scallop, i did it with a paper piercing tool.

i am using an oldies fold, but really fun to decorated with this "double Z folding" card
and the main image is : Valentino

this is for more closer, i made heart decoration from a piece of white heart die cut and a piece of mica heart die cut, and for mica i did embossing it with dot embossing folder, and filling with tiny Red beads. so i have a thin heart shaker :)

a TON of love for you - with Fabric Flowers

Happy Friday everyone !!!
this time i want to share my card before i have my long weekend :)

here they are ..

using Magnolia stamp : Tilda hug Koala, Old oak and a TON of love for you
coloring with distress ink and decorated with half pearls, lace, and my hand made fabric flowers

I do love this Tilda hug that koala very much! i must thanks to Bron who give me a chance for free shipping buying this cute stamp at that time, and so amazing Pauline ... she have draw this super cute stamp with the great detail! I love Tilda's shoes a lot :)

and i have falling in love with this simple sentiment! because it has a TON of love that we could not say through the words

all the flowers here are my hand made flower, from my cotton fabric and cut it out with Doo hikeys and Marianne design dies.

these are the material i used for making my fabric flower, and for the tips ..
just sprayed all cotton fabric surface with Beacon's stiffen stuff, just let them dry about two hours or a day then it was ready to cut with the dies, for better result just layering it with a piece of paper below the fabric.
after you have done cutting the peony you can arrange and decorate with crackle pain and glittering with stickles.

I would love entering my creation in some challenges, i hope it will be fit on there :)

Thank you for stopping by and have a great week end ...


Happy Birthday Sporty Pal !

Hi !!!
It's nice to play with  nesting dies and embosser folder today :)
How about a Birthday greeting for a Sporty one ?

.... i was imagine if Tilda wants to greeting Edwin on his birthday .. they have playing together as a baseball team, so i thought it would be ok if sent a boy nuance card but still using Tilda image :D
Tilda Baseball colored with faded jeans distress ink.

... the time when they are playing together inspired me, it must a very "Happy Birthday" card but not such a girly one, i made a button from Kraft , dimensional it with glossy accent and tied with cream rustic.
i used Kraft as my base card too.
If you see that tiny heart, it comes from the romantic lace :)

... a birthday was not complete without balloons, so i have stamped Lovely Balloons from the newest collection from Magnolia - Sweet Crazy Love, with Versafine smokey grey

.. and this is the spot of the greeting!
inside this card i was decorated with DP from seven gypsy, romantic lace, gauze and tied them together with white steam binding

I would love to entering this one on :
Magnolia Stamp Lovers : Sport
Dutch Magnolia Lovers : Birthday card with Kraft
Paperplay : Ribbon every which way

Hope it will be cheer your day :))

Celebrating Chinese New Year with Tilda

Today, is Sunday on my country .. Indonesia.
It's mean I have more time to post something I have made yesterday ..
and share it for you my sweet friends ..

On this 23th of this January many of Chinese celebrate the Chinese New Year, that also known as "Spring Festival".
This year I want to celebrate it with my Tilda !!
Just imagine that she was in China .. :)

This year is : "Year of the Dragon" . that believe have so many good luck and prosperity.
Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festivity in the Chinese calendar. The origin of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because of several traditions.
Chinese New Year's Eve, a day where Chinese families gather for their annual reunion dinner
Windows and doors will be decorated with red colour ...

so for the greeting I pick the Red for the main color :

It is also the tradition that every family thoroughly cleans the house to sweep away any ill-fortune in hopes to make way for good incoming luck
On the Eve of Chinese New Year, supper is a feast with families. Food will include such items as pigs, ducks, chicken and sweet delicacies. The family will end the night with firecrackers.

Whoot .. what is this ??? This is a must on the Chinese New Year!
Early the next morning, children will greet their parents by wishing them a healthy and happy new year, and receive money in red paper envelopes.

Red envelopes are typically given by the married to the unmarried, most of whom are children.
the Chinese give red envelopes with the gold color on them. They give them because red means luck and gold means wealth.

Ooh ... do not forget, Children are the happiest one on the New Year, because their parent will bought them a new clothes, new shoes, many sweets and lots of  yummy food ..
and the most happiest time , when all families gather for their annual reunion dinner!!!
yes .. yes.. playing with the whole family was so FUN!!!

taraaaa ....
This "magic" card hopefully will bring more happiness for the children of my big family in law because we decided not to play with with firecrackers :D

The Chinese New Year tradition is to reconcile, forget all grudges and sincerely wish peace and happiness for everyone. 

Gong Xi Fat Choi !!!!

Wish you luck, healthy blessing and peace to all ...
With Love,

A precious gift by mail ...

Time flies so fast ...

Finally I had finished my mini photo album :)
For me, this very very special one!
I had a Birthday greeting last December, and what a fabulous gift that I received ..
from a lovely lady lives in Michigan : Elizabeth
She greetings me by a precious mail, which contains special photographs
and one of them is : 
What a surprise for me ..  
She wrote my name on the snow blanket !!!

I told my self, I have to keep all the photo with my special album made by my self with all my heart about it, because they are too precious to me :))

Here my photo album,

This is the front cover;
Using Mid Winter Tilda - from Magnolia Sweet Christmas Dream and colored with distress ink
magnolia supplied; DP and doohickey
Nesting with life style dies and decorate with lace, charm, flowers, etc
I love making my project shinning a lot, so I did glittering with so much Stickes here and there

 as my friend sent that priceless gift by email, 
I loved to use Tilda with Christmas letters - from Merry Little Christmas collection, 
coloring with distress ink, put Frosted Lace on her dress and little Xmas red glitter on the letter's seal 
That my name .. I framed it with small photo corner from marvy
and because it is a "gift" I thought i have to put an gift ornament,
so I used Sweet Christmas Present colored with DI and decorated with glitz and glossy accent.

and this the other picture ...
What a fabulous one! the snow blanket covered the road and the trees look so cool :)
on this side, image I used is : Ice Tilda 
Coloring her with iced spruce and stormy sky then glittered with stardust, edged with vintage photo
decorated this side with white laces, lovely fence from doohickey, rustic twine, rhinestone and heart ornament.

This is the both side look ...

and this is my favorite spot :)

By this way, I wanna say ... Thank you very much Elizabeth! not only for the great pictures, 
but for your friendship with me ..

First, I wanna say Thank you for my best friend; Ying Pang, Vera, Elizabeth, Yenny, Susan and Cathy

and for my all friends that I cant mention your name one by one ..
Irene, Dwita, Fika, Alessandra, Marushy, and many of you my sweet friend,
thank you for visiting my blog and leave your sweet comment :)
really appreciated it!

I just found my very old fabric on my mother wardrobe, and it has many pretty lace flowers .. ohh and I found two velvet leaves and a wood button from old skirt :)
I thought it can be fun to mixed the old one with my newest Magnolia Stamp - Tilda with Peony Tails from the Sweet Crazy Love collection.
I put not too much embellishment  there, but playing with some liquid for accent; Glimmer mist, Stickles and liquid pearl.

I cut out the flower from the lace, sprayed Glimmer mist  all aroud the card.. putting the liquid pearl on image back ground and on the tag.
I love Tilda Tag from Magnolia Doo Hickey, I has a small ornament than can be used sparately :)

... and this is my card :)

Special thank you for Susie Sugar and her team, your appreciated for my creation were priceless ..

Once again, Thank you my friends ... Thank you for being my part on this crafty world
