OLD and NEW card & Non Traditional Christmas card

This week cue card at CASology is not soo easy for me...I DONT HAVE OLD stamp...LOL..also I have to think to put OLD sentiment on my card...

I remember the time I was in Indonesia, Jakarta is the city where I was living...they have many hotels and they always made OLD AND NEW years party on their hotel and invite many guess to join their party (with some extra money we can join and enjoy the food from the restaurant hotel) Here is my interpretation card:

I stamped first the little bunny on my white paper...then I stamped the element on his body.

The challenge is from CASology Week 124 : OLD (sdh a. p.)

Then I stamped the Hero Arts alphabet OLD in black and the NEW in red color, the idea is OLD Year will be gone and the NEW Year will come soon.

"The Bunny images" is from Mama elephant, the "OLD and NEW" sentiment is from Hero Arts and the Sentiment  "Have a Happy New Year" is from Paper Smooches. I gave pierced with my hand (wthout any template) and used pierced tools to gave interest at the edge of my white paper. Hope you like my OLD and NEW card :)

Challenges for my card:

Allsorts Challenge #288: Animal Magic (sdh a. p.)

Naughty or Nice Challenges: Winter Holidays

Crazy For CAS: Something Old (The alphabet from Hero Arts that stamp set I have bought since 2010 and never used until today :) LOL)

Second card I made a non traditional Chrismas card...I imagine that gingerbread cookies (christmas tree shape) that I can put  them also inside the JAR...I colored the tiny christmas tree with copic marker and arrange it in the JAR and gave vellum paper at the top of the Jar and stamped the sentiment,last things I draw the doodle line and the card is finished :) It took some times only to colored the Christmas Tree :)

Challenge for my card:

Stempelkueche - die Challenge #8: Untypische Weihnachtskarte

Paper Smooches Sparks: Anything Goes(sdh a. p.)

Simon Says Stamp: Christmas/Holiday (sdh a. p.)

Thanks for looking and happy saturday :)




  1. Adorable cards, Monika! Love your design and interpretation of the old and new theme! The jar of gingerbread Christmas trees looks so yummy!

  2. Love your cards, Monika - especially card #1 as i love the pop of colour, Jo x

  3. Die Idee der ersten Karte ist toll!!! Vor allem die Hasen: der eine geht am Stock, mit Augenklappe, der andere ist fit wie ein Turnschuh!!! Wunderbar gemacht!!!
    Auch die zweite Karte gefällt mir sehr gut: schlicht und aussagestark. Die Idee mit den Tannenbäumen im Glas hat was!!!
    Dir ein schönes Wochenende,

  4. Your 'old/new' interpretation with the ME bunnies: brilliant and ever sooooo cute! And the jar of cookies...I'd love to be snacking on one of those! They'd be great with that cup of coffee from your previous post *grin* You're quite the inspiration!

  5. Both cards are adorable! I really love the cute bunnies on the first card and how you made the jar out of vellum and put little trees inside on the second card!

  6. Awww... Your first card is just adorable. Those images are so sweet! And speaking of sweet, your second card is positively scrumptious! Putting those cookies in the jar was a great idea.

  7. Christmas trees in a jar!!! How lovely! Great card!

  8. You are so creative. Love the OLD and NEW - fun and cute and so original.

    The non-tradional card is so cute! Love the jar with gingerbread cookies in it.

  9. so creative Monika and so interesting to learn about these parties! Love the ginger cardstock and can we eat the cookies? So pleased you like your card from me-I wanted to send you a purple and pink one!

  10. What a clever rake on the old theme! Love your little cute bunnies, how you incorporated just a touch of color and the pierced framing. So cute!
    The doodled frame of your second card us a nice touch. I want a little jar too, so many possibilities of what to put inside. Warm and cozy, very Christmasy even with the non traditional color choice.
