PTI stamps

June 30, 2011

Hi everyone!
I received a happy mail from Papertrey Ink last Sunday and just wanted to play with some new stamp sets I purchased. I really love Daydreamer and Gracious Vases!! So, first of all,  I had to ink them up!

110630

For this card, I used Daydreamer set, and the sketch was from CPS 224.

110630-2

Next one was used Gracious Vases set. I don’t know about you, but this set makes me feel Asian (especially East Asian) air. Maybe that is the reason I love this set. スマイル

Thank you for stopping by!

Bee Happy!

June 28, 2011

Hello everyone!
The card I’m sharing with you today was made for Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #17.
110628

I used Bee Happy and In Stitches (TSG) for this card. Can you see tiny white spots on those bee’s cheeks? I saw Iwona, who provided this awesome sketch, added white spots to a little girl’s cheek on her card. It was so pretty and I knew I have to try it. (I used a white gel pen.) I’m so happy that they look so cheery, and I’ll use this technique on my creations from now on!

Thank you for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day.スマイル

Robots – New digital Stamps

June 27, 2011

Happy Monday everyone~! Hope you all had a great weekend.スマイル
I have two cards to share with you today. Both of them were used new digital stamps I listed on my Etsy shop last week.

robot balloon_sample
Awile back ago, a funny robot was dancing in my head all day long… I thought it was time to draw some robot illustrations. lol! I needed a BD card for a boy, so I had my little robot held a balloon.
I drew one more robot, which was lovelier than the first one.

robot heart_sample
Isn’t the heart-shaped antenna cute?? And I really like his shy look! I think this image works well with a card sending your love to someone.ウインク

Thank you for stopping by today. See you soon~!

TSG Blog Hop Challenge : Vroom / Hibiscus

June 22, 2011

Welcome to Day 2 of  TSG Blog Hop Challenges! Hopefully, you should have come here from Tobi's beautiful blog. If you want to start your hop from the beginning, please head over to the TSG blog.

We are showing two mini stamp sets today. The first set is Vroom, which was illustrated by Melyssa!


Vroom is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 6 stamps and will sell for $7.
This adorable set is great to make a fun, every day card for family and friends! The larger car featured in this mini set was sized so that it could also be used with Leah (who can be seen in the Freeze The Moment stamp set).

Next one is called Hibiscus, yes, it was illustrated by me!:)



Hibiscus is a 3x4 set that includes a total of 7 stamps and will sell for $7.
I hope it will become a favorite from your summer stamping collection! Use them to create beautiful custom designer paper, color in the line art images to use as a focal point for your project or pair them with a TSG sentiment stamp set for a card that can be given for any occasion.


For my card, I used line art images. I colored them with Copic Markers as usual, and then cut them out. For the background paper, I sponged some blue inks, added random stitches and distressed the edges slightly. The beautiful sentiment was from Flowers Of Happiness set.

Would you like a chance to win the Vroom / Hibiscus stamp sets? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Vroom / Hibiscus Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own Vroom / Hibiscus stamp sets. The winner will be announced Saturday (June 25th) during the Release Party Chat.

Here is the end of today's hop. Thank you so much for playing with us today. Tomorrw is Day 3 of  this month's sneak peeks and we are going to show you another stamp set I illustrated. So I hope you'll join us again! 

Thanks!

Swirly Flowers & Bird

June 20, 2011

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was so busy that I couldn't even touch my computer:( So I have to catch up with what happened in blog land during this weekend asap!

I wanted to share a CAS card using a new digital stamp, Swirly Flowers & Bird, that I added to my Etsy shop today.


This illustration was drawn in thin and delicate line. So, I thought that soft and light colors would work well with it. The polka dot stamp I used for background was from Hero Arts, and the sentiment was from PTI.
I hope you like my new digi!:)

Now, I'm off to work on my sample cards for TSG release! This month's sneak peeks will start tomorrow, and I'm going to participate in Day 2 and Day 3. Make sure to check the TSG blog tomorrow so that you won't miss a chance to win a new stamp set!!

日本でご覧頂いている皆様…超多忙な今日この頃でして、更新がまばらで申し訳ありません。時間の節約のため、和訳は要約のみになりますがお許しください。リンクは、↑の英文の中から飛んでください。

今日のカードは、新しいデジタルスタンプ、Swirly Flowers & Birdを使ったCASカードです。
明日から、TSGの今月のプレビューが始まります。私は2日目と3日目に参加する予定です。そのサンプルカード、今から作ります!では!!!!

Freeze The Moment

June 14, 2011

Hello everyone! I have a yummy CAS card to share today.;)

こんにちは!今日は、おいしそうなCASカードを。(^^)

For this card, I used one of the newest stamp sets from TSG, Freeze The Moment. I LOVE this image, it is sooooo CUTE and looks so yummy! :) I thought these cute ice creams should be colored in pastel colors. But I couldn't help slipping in a chocolate one, because it is my most favorite flavor of ice cream!!
The sentiment was stamped with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with white EP.

TSGの新しいスタンプの中から、Freeze The Momentを使いました。このイメージ、とってもかわいくておいしそうで、大好きなんです!(^^) これはパステルカラーで塗るのがよかろう…と思ったのですが、チョコレート味も入れずにはいられませんでした。私の一番大好きな味ですからね。はは。
センチメントは、バーサマークで捺してから、ホワイトのエンボスパウダーでエンボスしました。

Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy Monday everyone! I just popped in to share a 10 minutes card that I made last Saturday night.

こんにちは。今日は、土曜日の夜に作った簡単カードをご紹介します。

When I saw THIS cute card by Jessie, I remembered that I had neglected Polka Dot Pals set, which was the first set I designed for TSG, for a long time. I thought I had to care my poor polka dot animals, therefore this card was done. (lol!)

Jessieさん作のコチラのかわいいカードを見たとき、そう言えば、長いことPolka Dot Palsセット(私のTSGスタンプ第1作目でした)を使っていないな…と思いました。こりゃーかわいそうな水玉アニマルたちをかまってやんなくっちゃ、と思って、このカードを作りました。(笑)

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

CPS 221

June 10, 2011


CPS 221

I made this card for the CPS 221 sketch challenge. The beautiful flower image was from Dream A New Dream set (TSG) which was illustrated by Chris Dark. The wonderful part of the images in this set is that they are very easy to color. We do not need to worry about our skills of shading! Yum! (lol)

このカードは、CPS 221のチャレンジで作りました。この素敵な花のイメージは、Chrisさんがイラストを描かれたDream A New Dreamセット(TSG)のものです。このセットのイメージの素敵なところは、色付けがとっても簡単なこと。陰影付けのスキルについて心配しなくても大丈夫ですから!はははっ。

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

Wedding Cards -- Part 2

June 9, 2011

Hi everyone!
As I promised yesterday, I'm sharing a sample card for my new digi, Wedding Cake 01.

こんにちは。昨日お約束した通り、新しいデジタルスタンプ、Wedding Cake 01のサンプルカードです。


I'm very happy with the neat and clean look of this card. For the background, I used Background Basics : Twinkle set (PTI), which is my fave!!:):) The sentiment was from Fancy Phrases set (Waltzingmouse Stamps).

このカードの小ざっぱりとした感じ、好きです~(自己満足・笑)。背景には、Background Basics : Twinkle(PTI)を使いました。このセットはとってもお気に入りです。センチメントは、Fancy Phrasesセット(Waltzingmouse Stamps)から。

As I completed the card above within 30 minutes (is it long or short??), I could get one more card today. Lovely Couple image was used again.

上のカードが30分以内で出来ちゃったので(これって長いのか短いのか…)、今日はもう一枚できました。こちらはまたLovely Coupleを使っています。

I think this card is suitable for this weeks the ABC challnege, "W is for Wish".

このカードは、今週のABC challenge、"W is for Wish"にエントリーしたいと思います。

Wedding Cards -- New Digital Stamps

June 8, 2011

As it is a good season for wedding celebrations, so many challenge blogs are challenging us to create a wedding themed project. Unfortunately, I didn't have a wedding themed stamp set. So I decided to make some digital stamps featuring a wedding!;)
I completed 3 new digis and they have been already listed on my Etsy shop. Here are my sample cards.

The first one was used  "Lovely Couple".

For the next one, I used "Wedding Cake 02".

I'm entering these cards to this weeks Stamp Something challenge -- Use disital something.

Actually, I added one more wedding cake image ("Wedding Cake 01"), but I've not finished a sample card yet. I promise you to show it asap.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have time for visiting my Etsy shop!:):)

CFC 5 ?

June 6, 2011

Hi everyone!
My son joined a baseball club at his junior high school in April, and that has made my daily life pretty busy... Recently, it is getting hard to get time for crafting and blogging  everyday :(
Today, I'd like to share a card that I managed to make a couple of days ago.

こんにちは。4月に息子が中学で野球部に入って以来、なにやら毎日忙しくなって…最近では、趣味に使える時間を確保するのがなかなか難しくなってきています。
今日は、2日前に作ったカードをご紹介したいと思います。


For this card, I got an inspiration for the layout from the sketch over at this weeks Cas-ual Fridays Challenge (CFC 5). As soon as I saw a semicircular part of the sketch, I thought of a planet surface image from Out Of This World set (TSG)! As I changed the sketch into vertical one, my card turned out very different from the original sketch. But I'm very happy with this card and I hope it would be acceptable for the challenge.

このカードでは、今週のCas-ual Fridayチャレンジのスケッチを参考にしました。スケッチの半円形の部分を見たとき、すぐにOut Of This World (TSG)の惑星の表面のイメージを思い出しました。スケッチを縦長の形に変えてしまったので、オリジナルからは程遠いものになってしまいましたが、なかなか満足な仕上がりになりました。あとは、チャレンジに受け入れてもらえるか否か…(苦笑)

Thank you for stopping by!

FTL 142 & RCC 5

June 2, 2011

Hello everyone!
As the rainy season has set in, it has been rainy or cloudy days for about a week... I hate this season, because everything is damp and it makes me feel gloomy.:( My creative mojo is down, so I have a quick card  today.

こんにちは。梅雨のせいなので仕方ありませんが、ずっとどんよりお天気ですねぇ…(娘の運動会は3日も延期になったし。中学で野球部に入った息子は、泥だらけのお洗濯ものを連日持ち帰るし…) お天気のおかげでなんだかヤル気も出ず、今日は簡単なカードで。

For this card, I used FTL 142 sketch. (I rotated it 90 degree.) And I'm entering this card to this weeks Ribbon Carousel Challenge (RCC 5 -- Anything goes, as far as our creations include some type of ribbon, twine, lace... how easy!! lol.)

スケッチは、FTL142を使いました。(90度回転。)それから、このカードは、今週のRibbon Carousel Challenge (RCC 5 -- リボンやtwine、レース、テープなどを使っていれば、なんでもOK。へへっ、簡単^^)にエントリーします。

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you have a fine day~!

見に来てくださってありがとうございました。早く晴れてくれ~~~~!
