Reindeer Forest | Magnolia Day Inspiration online class

Hello again friends!

This is my another Blog post about The Online Magnolia Day, if you missed the first one you can check HERE. I’ve been wanting to share this card since yesterday and today I have this chance!

I am featuring a very easy watercolor background inspired by a short path of Bambi's story:
Bambi's Mother: Everything in the forest has its season. Where one thing falls, another grows. Maybe not what was there before, but something new and wonderful all the same.
Bambi: But I feel so alone.
Bambi's Mother: I'm always with you. Even when you can't see me, I'm here...
In this case, I try to wrap my card with the friendship of Princess Deer :) 

Card Details;
I use Reindeer Forest set from Magnolia Day and it was an awesome set with beautiful images and die.
I filmed a video tutorial showing how to create this project, and you can watch it on Magnolia's site HERE.

I really appreciate all your lovely support every time you read my blog.
Thank you so much, Wishing you a beautiful day!

Chinese painting on art journal Ft. Edwin Ninja

Hello friends!

I feel like it’s quiet fast from my latest post on my blog, but I have lots of  ideas in my head for my crafting journey and a few fun Instagram stories to tell!
Today I have a rather simple journal pages to share featuring Edwin Ninja [from Magnolia stamp, of course!] along with a very easy Chinese painting. I actually wrote this pages back in few days ago and never got around to posting it.
I am struggling to learn how to handle a Chinese brush to paint, especially on the particular small area like a journal page.

I find it isn't easy .. but I have to learn harder if I want to get a better skill.
When I write in my journal, I don’t dwell on things that went wrong. Focus on the positive aspects of my day or week.
Because I love to write it and read again in the future!

I treasure these words:
"The man who moves a mountain must start by moving small stones."
Chinese proverb


First of all, I color the image with watercolor mediums. This Image really talked abut the "never give up" then I combine him with Bamboo -- in this case I choose Bamboo because I can learn how to paint the stroke for stem and paint the leaves after that.
I am using Kuretake Gansai Tambi - Japanese watercolor that have creamy texture which is easy to use on this particular Chinese painting, in my opinion!
For the final touch, the glamorous gold splatters from Kuretake Starry Night has made a different gorgeous look.

This is my name in Chinese letter :)

Thank you so much for reading!

Mirror stamping + Video | Halloween week Early bird extra stamp

Hello everyone!

Today's blog post and video is a part of the Magnolia Halloween week. this is the last post of this series which is I am featuring the extra stamp that include on the package if you bought them around the early bird offer.
I hope you’ve enjoyed previous episodes, in case you missed them you can find them start from HERE

Card Details;
 I’m back with another mirror stamping idea mixing and matching the image with some wording either from Magnolia and the oldie Fiskars that I had for years.
I used a Mini Misti to help stamp the images on the watercolour paper in Versafine Onyx Black ink, I am using Canson illustration paper. It’s more student grade quality but it is much whiter, the price point was favourable too.

I filmed a video tutorial showing how to create this project from start to finish.
You can watch it on Magnolia channel HERE also on my channel HERE.
I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it.

Words - Magnolia, Fiskars

See you again on another post/ series

Autumn journaling with Magnolia | Halloween week stamp 12 - Day 12

Oh Hello, my lovely readers!

I can't believe that I almost wrapped out this series with today's post
I am actually running dangerously low on my idea!
I saw the image, I think that she was fall and injured! She was broken leg.. and suddenly I think about the word "FALL"
I want to do something inspired with that word!

Fall seven times and stand up eight
~ Japanese Proverb ~


Me, I love to think many ways to use my stuff including my stamps collection, I want to stretched them up and one of my fave is using my stamps when I wrote on my journal.
I started working on these by picking out a few sheets of patterned paper from my stock, gathered some vintage stamps and washitape for decoration.
I also using watercolor to get more texture on my pages.

Rain or Shine I will always be here | Halloween week stamp 04 - Day 08

Hello, friends!

It’s almost end of week 02 of the month and it means it’s time for me to post another card that I made for Magnolia Halloween week series.
This time I am so inspired with the popular pinky sayings / quote :
Rain or shine I'll always be here!
it says about friendship and I adore this quote so much, I think this theme so fit with the Tilda in the rain that I've got from the bag for day 08.

Card Details :

  I started working on these by picking out a few kind of Magnolia DooHickey dies from my supplies and picked some pattern paper. I also did a manual stitching around the focal panel on my cards.
I didn't doing something fancy here, because the image it self already talked about the message I want to say.
Just adding the two hedgehogs because in my imagination .. sometimes they are out for earthworm after the the rainy day  .. correct me if I am wrong :)

Supplies :

Magnolia stamp - Halloween Box day 08
Frame - Magnolia Vintage Box Circus
other dies coming from DooHickey Box.

Thank you for peeking my card today and wishing you all a lovely day!

Heart shape one layer card | Halloween week stamp 03 - Day 05

Hello friends!

For my today’s blog post I decided to continue exploring to make a colored background using inks blending, and I use some colors from Distress ink.
I have so much fun to play this and also I combine this technique with a shape one layer card.

Card Details;
 I looked through my stash in search of the color for background and I decided to use Fossilized amber; Seedless preserves and Gathered twigs .. they smelt like autumn air aren't they ?
Once my background dried I am going to come in with some clean water on my fingers, kind of just drop some on and kind of splatter it, then I used paper towel to sop that up, and left behind water droplet areas.
I also picked a pale gold Gansai Tambi from Kuretake to make gold splatter.
The wording was from Fiskars; for me this set is my ready to go sentiment.

Supplies :
Image - Magnolia Halloween Box day 05
Heart shape dies - Magnolia Vintage Box
Distress inks | Gansai Tambi starry colors | Fiskars wording

Thank you so much for your support, and until the next post!
Have a wonderful day!

Fall watercolor painting | Halloween week stamp 02 - Day 03

Hello friends!
I continue to share the image from Magnolia Halloween week; and today is about stamp 02 which is coming from day 03.
I've got so much fun with this collection and surprisingly there is Tilda having a toothache!

Card Details;
This time I paint an autumn background on my card, I started working on this card by stamping the image not at the center of my panel because I need a space for the background.
