Three Cards using Stripes Stamp I loved

You know that I have bought the Papetrey Ink Super Stripes Stamp Set and Cornelia was helping me to make my dream come true to have a Stripes Stamp (again many many thanks dear Cornelia....) and as I told you I will use it again and again...hope you are not feeling bored with my stripes stamp LOL :)

With this color challenge from
Cosmic Color Chalenge #9 (UNTIL 31 Jan):  I would love to make a card using the big strip with pink color.

Here is what I made as a card base:

I stamped the white card base with with that Hero Arts Soft Pink Shadow Ink and bold strip stamp (number 5 from above at my picture) . Its fit for a challenge at

Hiding in my Craft Room #181: Pinks! (sdh a. p.)

Here I also use my Stripes to colored my gift in blue and also in brown (forget to make a picture :) )

Here is my complete card with that element above:

I made this card for Helen that I knew newly..she comes also from Jakarta the capital city of Indonesia (where I was living until September 2001)..yeah...I am so happy we can chit and chat with Indonesian language...Hope you like this card Helen... :)

Challenges for my first card:

Seize The Birthday: this time without Toppings (sdh a. p.)

Stamplorations Anything Goes Challenge(sdh a. p.)


I also need a symphaty card for my lovely Blogland friend Miss C....dear Carol, I feel also sad with you and send you pray for make you strong and be a strong girl beside your lovely mom..sorry for your loss sweety :(..

I used again the Paper Smooches stamp with this vase and the flower this time with black ink. The card base I made with the Thick Strip stamp and this time colored it with grey ink.

Another look of my card:


Suzy Bee´s Bloomin´ Challenges: Anything Goes with a Twist Clean and Simple (sdh a. p.)

Clear it Out Challenge: Anything Goes (sdh a. p.)

Loves Rubberstamps Challenge: Anything Goes(sdh a. p.)

Top Tip Tuesday: Keep it Simple Challenge  (sdh a. p.)

My ***Tip for TOP TIP TUESDAY*** is, using stripes stamp and using some colors you loved, to make your plaid paper or to make your strip design paper, this time I use pink, grey and blue on this post using the stripes stamp set.


Last card is for a colleague in my office...she will turn 60 woooowwww....she loves blue..also I made my plaid paper by my self again using the Stripes Stamp :)

I make as simple as I can this time...cause it was already 23:30 o´clock LOL I have to go to bed then...

Stamped the butterfly Hero Arts on the dark blue paper and embossed it with silver embossing powder.

Simple design I use this time, the embossing paper is from my friend (you know I have no die cut and embossing machine :) )


Challenges for my third card:

C.R.A.F.T Challenge #292:(sdh a. p.)

Pals Paper Arts #234: the color challenge (sdh a. p.)

Papertake Weekly Challenge: Anything Goes (sdh a. p.)

Thanks for looking and happy tuesday :)




  1. WOW, Monika...once again, I'm in jaw-dropped awe at how stunning your cards are...incredible creativity! Your stripes: beautiful! Use stripes as often as you want; you work magic with them! Your sympathy card has my eyes filling with tears: THANK YOU for creating this lovely, soft, special card for me, to acknowledge the passing of my dad. My heart is smiling at having you as such a special friend (I sent you a note with my address; hope you received it). Your colleague will absolutely adore the birthday card you made for her, as do I!
