Merry Christmas everyone !!! ... My truly Santa is ...

Hello there ...

first I would love to say :
Merry Christmas
everyone !!!

and not forget when the Christmas is coming, there is a Christmas card greeting, from me .. and sending with the warmest wishes for this Season and Good Luck for the coming new year!!

I have a story behind my card ..

long time ago when I was a little girl,
lots of my friends asked me to play Santa Claus wishes, How is it ?
they told me that I have to put some of hay inside an old shoe .. and we wrote down what we wish to have as a Christmas present ..
I thought about that day and night, and how come Santa can bring us that things and why we should have to provide that hay for Santa's reindeer ..
I didn't do it and my shoes stay clean on the day before Christmas!
days after Christmas, my friends talked each other that they didn't get all that they wrote, just some stationery that they got :)
and the funniest think, when they asked me, what do you wish for the Christmas present ?
 my answer .. 6 tiny dolls with their white shoes! oh no.. you wouldn't get that, so difficult for Santa!
no... I got it!! How come ?  my mom bought for me without asking me :) 
.. oh ?? and how come your mom knows about that ? 
My mom, she always knowing me better than my self and she always provide whatever I need without I asking her , my father also do that ..
 yup! I have my truly Santa in my live ever, they are my beloved parents!

Stamps : Unwrapped Tilda, Christmas Background (So Jolly & Mistletoe 2009)
Magnolia papers : The Day before Christmas (Winter Wonderland 2013) , Eau De Colonge , Old Book

Christmas greeting from tropical island ..

Hello ...

it's count 4 days more for the Christmas and yey !!!
Yesterday I have a happy day and being spoil on my Birthday :)
Thank you for all the wishes and how I am so blessed to have my family and friends ..

some of my Christmas stamp have been use on my Christmas things, from greeting card to decoration but today, I wanna use an image out of Christmas collection for my Christmas greeting card, why ?? because we don't have any winter, snow or the traditional for Christmas eve as we just got two seasons .. but, I do BELIEVE that CHRISTMAS SPIRIT all over the word include in the tropical island like Indonesia, the country where I live..

So, this is Christmas greeting ..

Stamp image : Tilda with Little Hat (Special moment 2013) coloring using Distress inkpads
Text : Hero Arts
Punch : Carla , Sugar Nelliesnellen
others : SU! Hemp twine, various sequins

here the closer look ..
first, I cut my image space in square and then I cut my light yellow layer with circle die.
my layer adhere up with foam tape to my base card, before it the edges colored with desert sand using blending tools and stamped on it  the Holiday Background from Heroarts with the same color so they are blended softly.
make a tiny hold on the top of the circle and tied a piece of hemp twine.
next, doing fussy decoration with some punch out and sequins :)

my finishing touch is make an envelope to wrap it and ready to send for a lady that love to inspired many people for doing paper crafting, now all that I wish is .. Mr postman will doing his job with no late this time, ho ho ho ...

I bet many of you already for the holiday, so I wish you the Lovely Holiday ever !!
Happy Holiday everyone!!


Be Merry and Bright

Hi .. Hi .. !!

In the heavy rainy afternoon, I would love to share my latest card with you ..

I've made some simple card when I have to make lots of Christmas cards for friends or cousins but really it was my very first time to get a try for no lines coloring, 
and tell you the truth, it was so.. scary for me :)

I have not post lots of picture this time..
but I would to write steps that I took when I made this card :)

I stamped my images Mid Winter Tilda with light color [Memento dessert sand] on Arches 300gsm water color paper, I almost going with Fabriano or Canson for my work and Winsor Newton sometimes but I need a smooth surface this time so I picked Arches, because it has nice surface that can resist the flow of the water.
Mediums I use are Distress ink pads.
Those Snowflakes also Magnolia stamps, they are from Sweet Christmas Dream 2011 I love this collection so much and my card published on Magnolia Ink for the first time also at the 2011 Sweet Christmas Dream ;)

I had my beautiful memories when Magnolia asked me to join on their DT it was amazing and I never dream about it before .. Thank you so much Magnolia!
and by this way I would love to send my greeting to Magnolia : Merry Christmas !!

Back to my card, I stamp the snowflakes using versamark and embossing them with white embossing powder, after they are completely dry with blending tools I color the background using Aegean Blue Versamagic chalk
Decorated with rhinestone, twine and little tag from Magnolia DooHickey Tea Label Tags
Paper : SU! Chocolate chips.
Word : Kaiser Craft.

That's all from me today, I really ... really wish .. you will like my work this time because it makes with my heart on the scary beats he he he :)

Thank you for today and see you again, bye!

Christmassy smile,

Christmas Garland

Hello my dear friends around the world ..

it seem I am back so fast here around the blog, but I don't want to missed this season for share the Joy :)
and today I wanna show you how I make my own garland for this Christmas.

Things that you have to prepare are : Magnolia DooHickey dies - Big House (newest release from Winter Wonderland 2013) and Heart Flower Lace (or any lace you have)
Christmas ribbon, paper string an the mediums.
Here I used Distress Crackle paint - Picket Fence, Distress Dry Glitter - Clear Rock Candy and Ancient Gold Powder from Ranger

after cutting the paper with the dies, gently fold on the marked and assembly until you found the house shape become 3D like the picture. Cut the lace that you have made using lace dies and put it on the roof of the house. 

Next, paint it with crackle paint where ever you want and when it still wet sprinkle with dry glitter let it dry. You can add more accent with Ancient Gold like I've done here but only a little bit sprinkle.

Then you can hang them out on meters ribbon, I found this beautiful Christmas ribbon here on an household shop so I bet you will easily can found your ribbon too when you do your Christmas shopping ;)

and they are become like this :
I think I have to make another beautiful tiny houses, because I just can't get enough only for one meter garland for sure :D
Will back again with another inspiration for this season, as I have a special memory about my very own Santa .. stay tune guys .. until then and by for now!
