Featured Designer at CASology Week 3 and an Umbrella Card

We meet again at CASology Featured Designer this week is my 3rd week on this lovely challenge blog :) (at least for me :))

This time I love to share how at the end I bought Big Shot ( I even dont know how to write it LOL) 

As I knew Cuttle Bug from my lovely crafters in Indonesia, I really want to buy it. But my hubby always not allowed me to do it. He said "you make card with stamps right?...why you want to have tools others than stamps?" hmmm....I could not answer him :) but I never asked a gift named Cuttle bug. He bought me last christmas (2014) Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor set. 

Also I make short the Story :) Petra a very kind lady who lifes also in Germany has a post on her blog and wanna sell her BIG SHOT...Big Shot??? Did I read right??? yes a BIG SHOT and it costs only 50 EURO..look at this POST for the whole story please :)...

Now I wanna share some product as the FOOD (DIES, Embossing Folder) for the Bigshot that I already collection :)

Here is the place where my Big Shot stand (not optimal but he has a place right :))

Here is the peak of the first drawer:(not related with Big Shot right :))

Second and third drawer is here where my Embossing folder and the Die`s collection stay (you know how fast it getting more and more hmmm cant say :) not my fault..its fault of the Big Shot (LOL))

Here is the fourth drawer all my stencils (not related with Big Shot too ;))

And the last drawer is stash I collect ....should not showing here :) 

And I also want to share my Umbrella card this time:

Tips: because I dont have umbrella stamp (I have one but too small :( ), this time I made quilling Umbrella :)

I used Create A Smile stamp set for the sentiment and the cloud and water drops.

I also like to join the challenges at:

  7. Such a creative card, Monika! I just love how you created that cute little umbrella! :) So happy you finally got your Big Shot! It's such a wonderful tool to have! So happy you're our Featured Designer again this week at CASolgy! Hugs!

  8. I've never tried quilling before, but wow what a fantastic effect it has, it adds dimension and it makes your card very unique, no one has quite the same, like with a stamp. The cloud and raindrops are great additions. It turned out fab, this card!
    So fun to see images of your stash too. Looking very organized!

  9. Your quilled umbrella looks awesome! Love the big postage stamp die you used too! Thanks for playing along with us at Craft Rocket Challenges!

  10. OH MY What an awesome umbrella.. I love the quilling you did and the colors. It's awesome and you are so talented. Really cool card. I can relate to how fast the dies/embossing folder/stencils and all crafting supplies add up.. How does this happen.. LOL. Happy Easter my friend.

  11. Monica I love your quilled umbrella! So fabulous. I am also so glad that you finally have the best and most essential tool for crafting--the Big Shot. Enjoy it and it will last forever, such a well made tool! So happy to have you as our Featured Designer!

  12. Lovely card, I read the story of the big shot, and was for sure smiling, hahaa sometimes hubby thinks we spend too much on a hobby ya? But anyways they give into us.

  22. Hi, moNIKA! Lol! First: your creativity never ends. Quilling always looks so awesome to me-- delicate and detailed. Have never done it myself, but as a paper crafter it is intriguing. Your umbrella is beautiful. I also like the offset postage-stamp panel. And your BigShot story made me smile... You naughty wife! ;) I suppose we all have crafty secrets sometimes! (I just try to hide the amount of time I spend crafting!)

  23. Monika, it's been fantastic having you as our GD at CASology this month! I LOVE your quilled umbrella! You are very clever to make one! I've never tried quilling! SO pretty. Also loved your story about the Big Shot! I love it too! Such a great tool! Hope you have lots of fun with it!

  24. The quilled umbrella is beautiful, Monika! I couldn't live without my BIg Shot - so glad you finally got one. Thanks for joining us at the CASology challenge this month!

  25. Great job, love the color and the CAS is perfect thanks for entering our challenge at One Crazy Stamper.
    Cheers, Leanne DT/OCS

  26. Haha Monika, you have made me smile with the husband story. He sounds like mine. But in this craft we do accumulate a lot and well, they kind of get used to it. :)
    I love the quilled umbrella you made and the stamp mat too.
    I also want to thank you for joining us at Cre8tive Hands Friends blog where this week we have the 'Anything Goes" challenge. Glad you joined. Hope to see your creations again.

  29. First of all: How could you live without a Big Shot?!!!! And how come your husband decides whether you are allowed to have one?!!!!!!! I hope you have the some right to say no, when he wants to make an investment. Your umbrella card is absolutely gorgeous! I love the quilling and I never tried it myself. I only admire people´s cards and projects with it. Creative regards from stempelfrida
