Hi everyone! It's day 3 of this month's TSG Blog Hop Challenges.
The stamp set we are showing you today is called Cute As A Button, which was illustrated by me!:):)



This is the perfect sewing set for ANY crafter, full from top to bottom, end to end, with as MANY stamps as you could POSSIBLY need to make the perfect card or scrapbook page, this whimsically cute set is sure to have EVERYTHING you need to celebrate the crafter in your life!

Cute As a Button is a 6x8 set that includes a total of 33 stamps and will sell for $24.00.

I made 2 cards for today! For the first one, I added some vintage feel.



At first I stamped the pincushion image, masked it, and stamped the little spool. I also masked the little spool, then added other spools. You can stack up these spools using masking technique.:)

Next one is clean & simple... and soooo cute! (if I may say so myself. lol.)

TSG Blog Hop Challenge : ConGARDulations

May 22, 2012

Welcome to Day1 of TSG sneak peeks!!
This month, four stamp sets will be released on Saturday, 26th. All of them are sooooo fabulous that you'll LOVE them!!:)

The stamp set we are showing today is ConGRADulations that was illustrated by Melyssa Connoly!



Melyssa is at it again, and just in time for all your graduation needs! This stamp set is PERFECT for ANY grad, young or old!! There is NO better way than to honor your favorite grad with a card, or scrapbook page, honoring their achievements!

ConGRADulations is a 4x6 set that includes a total of 17 stamps and will sell for $15.00.


Actually, it is rare that graduates wear a mortarboard in Japan. Of course I didn't wear it at the  graduation ceremony of the university. It looks so cool for me and I adore it so much. So I decided to use this mortarboard image as a focal point of today's card.

Happy Birthday, Jessica!

May 21, 2012

Today I'm soooo excited to be a part of the surprise birthday blog hop for Jessica Knutsen, who is the owner  of There She Goes Clear Stamps!!
Her birthday is May 24th, but with the release week, we decided to do this blog hop today.

I've been working with Jessica as an illustrator about two years, and total of 48 stamp sets I designed have been released so far! (one more set is going to be released this weekend!;)) Sometimes she gives me a very difficult theme and I have to have some hard time to squeeze out 'good' illustrations. LOL! I'm not complaining about it, I LOVE it. Because it can be a good opportunity to make myself step up to a new stage! She always encourages me and is so kind to me. It is certain that I'm not here now without her!

Thank you so much and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Jessica!!


For this simple card, I used 4 TSG stamp sets! The puppy is from Polka Dot Pals, which was the first set I designed for TSG. The party hat is from Make A Wish set. I paper pieced it and added some liquid pearl. The word bubble is from Oh Snap and the sentiment is from Little Treat.
I hope Jessica will love this mixed card!!

Here is a list of participants for today's blog hop. Please hop along with us to celebrate Jessica's birthday!!:)


Thank you for stopping by. Make sure to come back here tomorrow for this month's TSG seak peek!!

Live In The Moment

May 19, 2012

Today I have a CAS card to share with you, which was inspired by notecards I pinned to my Pinterest board a while back.




I stamped the camera images with Memento London Fog ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I'm really happy with how this card turned out!!:)

I'm entering this card to the Simon Says Clean & Simple challenge.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great weekend!
