Oriental (A card with Japanese Woman), a Birthday Card and a Leaves Card

I see a challenge on CAS on Sunday (sdh a.p.) (Black and White with one Color= I Choose PURPLE) and on Addicted to CAS (I am one of the top 3) the theme is Oriental and I really love to try that both challenge and combine it together.

Here is my interpretation:

First I stamped the Japanese woman on a piece of white paper and cut it and adhere on the card base (after coloring with purple copic marker) then I put under the Image, Japanese paper in black and purple ( a bit red on the flower ...oppss sorry :) ) and last but not least sentiment and the sequin in purple

Here is the photo of the whole card  I made:

***Edited: I won this ORIENTAL Challenge at Addicted to CAS (what a happy news I got at that day :) 22 sept 2014)***


Kreativeinkauf Challenge #18: Anything Goes/Alles geht (sdh a. p.)

My second card I made again with the sketch from Stamplorations #19: (sdh a.p.)

Here is the card I made:

I covered the white area and stamped many sentiment with red, blue and brown ink, then gave Tea Dye ink on it to make it looks like a design paper (its a faux design paper LOL) and then stamped the Cake and colored it with copic marker. Sponged at the edge of the paper and adhere with double side tape.

Challenges for my second card:

Stamplorations September Challenge: Stamp and Markers ( I colored the main Image with copic marker)

Stempelküche Challenge #2: Geburtstag (sdh a.p.)

The third card I made for a challenge at  (1)The Male Room #18 (sdh a. p.). They have Autumn/Fall Challenge and we must make a card for a man (hmmm my speciality love to make manly card :))

And I love to join the challenge from (2) Curtain Call with the theme Lovely Leaves. (sdh a.p.)

And also the nice challenge from(3) The Paper Players #212: Happy Fall Y´all (sdh a.p.)

I inspired by this card from Deepti:

Here is my card CASE ing Deepti card and following the above challenges :)

I stamped first the card base with tea dye ink with tiny leaves many times.

I stamped the bigger leaves with brown ink then cut it then I colored the stem with copic dark brown. With Distress ink from Ranger I choose yellow, red, orange and tea dye ink to colored my leaves.

Hope this is manly enough :)

Thanks for looking and happy sunday :)




  1. Fantastic cards Monika. I love the Japanese woman image..Loz

  2. All the three cards are beautifully done Monika. Autumn leaf card is really WOW! Thanks for Case ing my card, I'm honored! :)

  3. Das sit ja schon Fließbandarbeit!!! Deine orientalische Karte hat wenigstens was Orientalisches!!! Bei meiner ist das nicht so, ich habe in dieser Richtung nichts.
    Auch die anderen Karten sind dir sehr gut gelungen.
    LG Flo

  5. Wonderful cards Monika! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! The stamps I used for the eye chart card are from My Favorite Things.

  6. Your cards, rock! I like the idea of not using so much design paper - your card looks more natural with the colours you've chosen and the handstamped background.
