Besides..my daughter is having her end of semester exams...Here is 3 new cards I made for my nieces...to make my life easier, I coloured the same images for them..so boring huh? Don't you think so...??

I coloured the face with the standard coloure I always use: E 11, 00, 000, R 21 (blush)
Red: R 29.27. 24
Blue: B 95.93,91

Brother & Sister

Hi everyone...today, I manage to finish up a project long overdue...LOL....I received this stamps from Ying Pang/Magnolia Sweden DT because I won her blog candy...It's like wining a lotery for me! As I actually ordered one from Diana but they took it on purpose at my local post office...:(

Oh well....Ying become an angel sent to me as I got a replacer for what am loosing...I promised her that I will make her a card. Instead of card, I thought a note book decorated with the image should be more useful, if you agree with me...it makes a great present too. As Ying loves purple...I decided to work on those tones & I hope she like it...:)

You know...my basic recipes for face and hair will remain the same...as those are my favourite tones, as well as for the beige. This time I used V 95,93,91 for the lavender coloured dresses on the image. The doilly was cut with the Magnolia's dohickey

For some of you who placed a comment on my previous posting...thank you very much, your comments were really encouraging and heart warming... If you wonder about the situation after the volcanic erruption here, we are actually pretty safe in the capital city. It's quite bad in the central of the island as the volcanic ashes are going everywhere and some flights going in and out of country were suspended last week end...Nowadays, life goes back to normal and yesterday we had the chance to welcome President Obama here....!

Merry Christmas Tilda

Hi everyone...!
It's been a while since my last Blog post...I've been busy at work and at the home front. My daughter's guerreling school works absorbs me a bit too...thanks God, now it's the final mid term exams. That will be taking place next week. Am happy if I could spare a bit of time craftin while accompanying her studying...here is a sweet Christmas card I made...I love to use blue and beige for this image, it gives the sweetness for the image....To add some festive mood...I apply some stickles glue on her dress. I made several card in this manner...as it's a good way to get rid of small pieces of DP we have in my basket. And the end result is so sweet. Here is the recipes for the colouring:

Loving Couple...

A few weeks back, I made this card for my sweet friend Debi...and am glad it finally arrived at the destination, even though it took several weeks to do so...I love this image and the romantic feel of the colour scheme even though it's only a simple one. Inside the card, I punched the edge of the paper with Martha Stewart edger punch and puffed it a little with some distress ink

Ying Blog Candy

I discover today that Ying, Magnolia Sweden DT has a yummy blog candy...she's offering the Cozy Fall collection for all of us around the world. Her link is http://yingandmagnolia.blogspot.com. Good luck to you all!

Bridal Tilda

I was so eager to do this card as they look very loving together. I tried to do an easel card for this one, using half of the card paper from an old DCWV Bridal collection and another half of it embrossed with Cuttlebug & puffed with Tim Holz old paper distress ink pad.

The colouring was as follow:

Face: E11, E00, E11, R20
Hair: E 35.34, YR 20, 21
Bridal gown: E 42,41,40
Flower girl gown: R85,83,81
Shoes & basket: E 39,35,33

I put some Stickels glue on the edge of the gown to give a bridal accent. Hope you enjoy tis one...

Happy Birthday from around the World!

Happy Belated Birthday Diana! My sincere apology for being late....reason being, it took me several days to put up this special card for you together...while in the same time juggling with my full time work, busy Ramadhan month in our country & my mommy's duty. However...it is enjoyable to do these. I was inspired by those Hallmark cards I used to received in the 70's...full of different pages and images...my older cousins used to sent them from the States for my Birthday and Christmas. So...for this one, I was doing something different....using many resources I can get in Indonesia as we have limited Scrapbook goods here.

On the cover, is Captain Pilot Edwin who will take you for a journey around the world on his Jumbo jet. I was using Magnolia's DP and this Edwin came from Bon Voyage collection as are all the Tildas in this card. I cut a light blue paper and punch it with MS edger punch and embrossed it with stars from Quickutz. I also cut the clouds with Quickutz and distress the edge with Tim Holz distress ink

On the second page is the Indian American Tilda named Maggie. Maggie sits in front of the star, cut with quickutz dies and embrossed with cuttle bug. I used 2 different DP from Magnolia for this page & the swirl was cut with the Magnolia doohickey.
Maggie came from the land of the melting pot to wish Diana a very Happy Birthday!

Next was Mayumi...she came from the land of the raising sun and wishes Diana Otanjou-bi Omedetou Gozaimasu! Above her were the celebration lantern, glassed with Glossy accent.

After Mayumi, came Mathilda from the sunshine coast of Australia and also Marisol from the land of the Matadors who wishes you Feliz Cumpleanos! Marisol fan and dress were glazed with stickels....

Than Maanika...from the home of Gangga river and beautiful India...Janam Din ki badhai! I added stickels glue as well on the colibris and the waterfall to make a nice accent and on her dress as well

No journey is complete without a shopping trip in Paris...I think Birthday girl Diana deserve some pampering before captain Edwin fly her home...and Magalie will guide you throughout the shopping boulevard of the city of lights....

In addition to this birthday card, I made also a birthday banner to hang on the craftroom door..each one of the Tilda came from around the world as well. Instead of shopping Tilda, I replace her with Hawaiian Tilda..so it's really international. This banner can be hung either vertically or horizontally.

Finally...from the buttom of my heart SELAMAT ULANG TAHUN, Diana...that's what we said in Indonesian...hope you all enjoy my creations! Have a great week end to you

Vintage Tilda

It was a busy week end for me and I manage to squeeze in some time for a card...I love this vitage style..it gives me a sense of "antique" style...and elegant....I hope in the next few days, I'll be able to do more cards..

Hair E 35, E34, YR 20, YR 21

Face - E 11,00,000, R 20
Blouse - RV 34 32
Jeans - B 97,95,91
Shoes - 39, 35, 33
And some stickles for the laces
Flowers from I am Roses, Thailand

The Dp I'm using was an old collection that I purchased long time ago....enjoy & have a great week ahead!

Another Vintage Tilda

Here is another style using the same Tilda as I used in my other Vintage Tilda card. I love doing them. The circle in front was cut wit Quickutz and embrossed with Cuttlebug. I puff it with Tim Holz antique photo distress stamp pad..as well as the inside of the card. The DP was from the Rustic Stack of DCWV . Paper flowers become my favourite embelisshement...thanks for stopping by...

Tilda with Cat

Even though I am not a cat person...I found that this Tilda with Cat so cute...fortunate enough that I found a matching DP for these two cards..with two different styles..

Ballerina Tilda

Am so addicted to this vintage look and I love the feel of it....this week end I made this pink Tilda Ballerina card in Vintage style. The outer part of the card was done with DCWV Rustic collection DP paper and the lower part was embrossed with Cuttlebug. The ribbon emblisshment was actually a lace from the fabric shop. The inside of the card was punch with Martha Stewart border punch and puffed with Tim Holz Victorian Velvet distress ink...hope you enjoyed the view....

Vintage Card

Finally...I made a card especially to participate in a "Challenge", my first time following one as I don't really have much time to do so..I have a demanding job...he he he. I was in a panic too coz, the deadline will be this coming Thursday and on Monday August 2 is my lovely sister Birthday too...so I was working on this full speed since yesterday & even used my lunch break to cut off those Tildas..lol! Since I can't find a DP that suits my mood for this card...I decided to stamp the background of the cover. Three Tildas were involved in this card as I think they belonged to the same theme family...I love the outcome and the oldish look of this card...And the butterflies surely complement the look...they're one of my favourite

Background stamp: Hero Art CG 120 Antique Background (stampad was Versafine Antique Sepia)
Flowers were from Prima FLowers
Butterfly puncher from Martha Stewart
Hair : Copic E 35, YR 23, Y 23
Face: Copic E 11, E 00, E 000, R 20
Sepia dress: E 42, E 41,E 40
Green dress: G 21, G 000
Distress Ink, Wld Honey & Antique Photo from Tim Holz

Wish me luck...*wink* *wink*

Snow White Tilda

Today...I posted this two similar card as I am in the mood of creating something different...Little Tilda looks so cute in her Snow white outfit...I didn't add much as the background picture is already crowded. Just 4 golden picture edger that I cut with Cuttlebug and some nice paper flowers...less is really best for this card...

Tilda with Flower Basket

This is another Tilda that I coloured some time ago with Memento London Fog, grey ink pad...I found a matching paper to complement the whole schem and I punched some Butterfly to matched the butterfly border I had from Cottage cut. The end result was sweet and simple as usual...

Simsalabim Tilda

Pink is certainly an easy colour to work with and I used 2 kinds of DP to complement Tilda's dress colour. The lace in the middle were punched with Martha Steward puncher and dabbed with a little bit of distress ink to bring out it's colour. A nice pink velvet ribbon across the card and some mulberry paper flower I got from www.iamroses.com recently, to cmplement the whole picture..

Bubbling Tilda

I love this Tilda very much and don't want to waste the whole image by adding too much things around her. The circle behind the white scalloped circle were cut with Cricut as well as the fleur de lis...I add some flowers from Prima Marketing and some bling bling, so the space won't look too empty...

Another Tilda in the Kitchen

It's been a busy 2 days for me as my little one is going back to school...well, she's not really little, 10th grader now who just turn ed 15...! In our country, summer holiday lasted for maximum 6 weeks only. She's so happy being a bigger girl now..hehehe...and me, I really miss her baby time..Now, here's a new simple card I made..the designer paper were punched with Martha Steward border puncher and distressed with Walnut Stain from Tim Holz/Rangers ink pad. Than the oval were stamped with Hero Arts (Memento Rich Cocoa)...I love the antique look of this card...

This loving couple were coloured way...in my early days of learning how to colour with Copic, despite of the imperfection...I love them dearly. That time, my Memento Black Tuxedo Inkpad hasn't arrived yet, so I stamped them with London Fog instead. The background paper and the heart shape doilys paper were from DCWV Linen Closet collection. I cut the doilys with Cottage cut and didsome distressing around the edge with Tim Holz distress ink pad....enjoy....

Patchwork Christmas Card

I had fun doing this one...Christmas is just a few months away from now. This card is easy to make and if you have some remaining/small pieces of DP...this is a good way to use them. I put some red flowers in the corner, compliment from Diana..Will be a busy handcrafting week end for me..

Lady Tilda

I made something simple this evening...as I found these DPs from Heidi Grace to complement the colour of her dress. The white part of the scalloped oval was embrossed with Cuttlebug and little tiny flowers from www.iamroses.com. I tempted to put a wording below but...I prefer to leave this one just the way it is...

Tilda in the Kitchen

In the mood of cooking....am an avid baker too but, my kitchen is a bit neglected since I fall in love with Tilda...LOL. It doesn't matter, I can bake during the week end when I have more spare time. The DP in this card came from American craft, the edges were punch with my favourite Martha Stewart puncher and flowers came from Diana...it's a pretty bonus, thanks Diana! Tomorrow, I'll come with another card..I promise

Simply Tilda

I created a simple card tonight...something very easy to do...sometime less is best. The paper doily were cut with Cottage cut and the paper flower garland from Thailand. The DP is from Melody Ross...The lacey border were punched with Martha Stewart border puncher. I truly enjoy doing Tilda cards...even though am totally new to this...

Pretty in Pink

Nothing is more rewarding than doing a Magnolia card after a hard day at work. This card was inspired by Barb Hardeman's beautiful card...and off course hers is much much better..! Thanks Barb for the inspirations....you always created a beautiful masterpiece. I embrossed the front part of the card with Cuttlebug, and the flowery DP is from Melody Ross. Purposedly punched a hole in the front part and glued some paper flowers and fleur de lis around the circle...
