CASE Study Challenge #110

September 27, 2012

I'm sad that it's my last week as a Muse over at CASE Study... However, I had so much fun with revisiting my old cards and CASEing them. I'd love to say a big thank you to Iwona for giving me such a great opportunity!

Now, here is this weeks inspiration card.

This time, I loosely CASEd. The elements I kept were...
 * Horizontal panel that is put on upper part of the card
 * Plural lined words

The cat image is a digital stamp from Birdie Brown. For making the background scene, I used Bugs & Hisses set from TSG.

Please head over to the CASE Study challenge blog for more inspiration from DT. And there is a prize to grab this week!! I'm offering two digital stamps from Birdie Brown, Halloween Cat 02 & Witch Doll 01. I hope you'll have time for CASEing me!:)

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!

TSG Again! Week

September 21, 2012

Hi everyone!
This week is a TSG Again! week over at the TSG blog, where we are featuring some awesome older TSG stamp sets. This month we have a Birthday theme going on and here are the sets we're featuring.

Today, Trendsetters are showing you new cards/projects using these sets. So here is mine.:)

I used Wrapped In Joy set.
My daughter, 11 years old, needs a birthday card for her friend next week. I thought this card would be good, but she complained that it was too girlish. I know she doesn't like pink... She prefer dark colors...:( I may have to make another BD card for her.

Thank you for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!

CASE Study Challenge #109

September 20, 2012

Hi everyone!
It's time for another CASE Study Challenge, and this weeks inspiration card is...

As it was just two years ago that I made this card, I completely forgot it. LOL! Revisiting my own old cards was so interesting!
I turned the layout upside down and changed the stamp set. But I tried to keep the other elements. Here is my re-take.

The stamp set I used was BombDiggity (TSG) and papers were from Sweet Day paper pad (Echo Park). The sentiment was stamped with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with White EP. I added two lines with a white gel pen, but... it might be not good.:(

Be sure to stop by CASE Study challenge blog to see what the DT created for today!

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!:)

New Digital Stamps!

September 15, 2012

I added 5 new digital stamps to my Etsy shop today and uploaded my sample cards on the Birdie Brown blog. I'd like to share two of them here, too.

For the first card, I used Halloween Cat 02 along with Bugs and Hisses set from TSG.

Don't you love his funny face? Hee hee!
Next one was used Witch doll 01.

She may look like a scarecrow, but she is a WITCH! (Jessie, are you reading this? LOL!!)  I used two circle Nestabilities to make a moon.;)

If you are interested in the other new digital stamps, please visit the Birdie Brown blog and/or my Etsy shop.

Thank you for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!

CASE Study Callenge 108

September 13, 2012

It's been a week since I posted here last time... I've been working around new digital stamps that will be released on this Saturday. I've finished my sample cards for them yesterday (at last!), so  I feel at ease now.:)

Today I'd like to share a card I made for this weeks CASE Study Challenge(CSC108). Iwona has chosen this card as this weeks inspiration.

This is one of my most favorite cards in my cardmaking life! I love the negative die-cut frame and the images hanging out from the frame. So here is my take...

The stamp set I used was Hauntingly Delightful (TSG). I'm so happy that it looks as if these mummies are coming out from the holes!:D

Be sure to stop by Case Study Challenge blog to see what fabulous DT created for today! And I hope you get a time for playing along this week.

Thank you for stopping by!

CASE Study Guest Muse!!

September 6, 2012

I'm soooooooo excited today, because I'm honored to be this month's Muse over at CASE Study challenge blog!!! Woo hoo!!:D
When Iwona asked me if I was interested in becoming a Guest Muse, I couldn't even believe it. As you know, the past Muses are super talented and their creative level is soooo high! And also, gorgeous creations by CASE Study DT blow me away every week. So I wondered if I deserved to be their Muse...??? But, anyway, Iwona invited ME!! Why can I miss this great opportunity?
Actually I'm still nervous a little, but I hope my cards give you some inspiration!;)

Here is the card Iwona has chosen for this week's inspiration.

For this card, I used one of my digital stamp, Happy Bee 02. I wanted to keep the "bee" theme and colors (yellow, red and black). So here is my take...

This time, I used Bee Happy set from TSG and loosely followed the layout.

Head over to the CASE Study challenge blog to get more inspiration from DT. I'm looking forward to seeing your creations inspired by my original card.:)

Thank you for stopping by!

Today's challenge is brought to us by Sandra! She has challenged us to make a card or project using the inspiration photo provided, with a birthday theme of course!

Here is my take.

Well, I think I don't need to describe how I was inspired by the photo. LOL.
I made the polka dot cupcake with the Enjoy Life Die set. To make a cup, I used a cone die from the set and cut off the bottom part. The sentiment was from A Little Treat set.
