2 Birthday Cards and one Valentine (Heart) Card

A little story about this card (you can also jump if you in a hurry :) ) I was finished worked at my last job last December 2014, and the old office is under my new office also now I work on the third floor and my old office was on the first floor :) how funny right...and my manager has a birthday tomorrow...she will turn 62, I guess...(I never ask how old is she exactly LOL :)) also here is a card I made for my manager:

As I see from her dress or coat, I guess her favorite color is red...and because we are in Accounting Departement, I made the card with this calculator image...the stamp set is from The Alley Way Stamp named Learning Curve.  

I choose the sketch from ShowCASe your Style CHallenge #8

For the bottom area, I stamped some pencil and that red office nail to make my own background paper.

The sentiment is from Create a Smile stamp set (meaning like Happy Birthday in German words) and the stripes in grey is from Papetrey Ink Stamp set.

I love that the Alley Way Stamp has this set with calculator, also as long as I still work as accounting then this stamp is fit for all my colleague at the same departement LOL :) Only change the color like their favorite color :)

My Second card is a Valentine card...I see soo many challenges with this theme...I can not stand to not making on more Valentine card, this time is for my hubby...I know that men doesnt like PINK color

..also I try to dominate the pink area with that swirl stamp. I stamped the Swirl with silver color and gave black embossing powder on it, then I fussy cut the heart after I drew it by my self. I distressed a bit the heart edge with the same pink ink.

The lovely cut out in black I got from Monika (Cohenna) from Poland, dear Monika again many many thanks for sending me this lovely Cut Out..I will always remember you if I use your nice goodies :) it really means to me the card maker without die cut machine :) LOL

Last Card is a birthday card for my Sister Ana in Jakarta...I miss to see her  :( but I still have no posibility to fly to Jakarta (Indonesia Capital City) also here is your card my dear sister...hope you will like it :)

First stamped the Flower and leafs with green ink to make the leafs still stay in green color. Stamped once more with black ink and colored the flower with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Water color. Its easier to blend the watercolor than if I used Copic (yeah I am newbie at coloring with Copic marker LOL)

The cut out Doily is from my friend and the sentiment is Hero Arts, also the Flower Image.

  1. Three wonderful cards, Monika! I'm sure everyone will love their card! And who says 'pink' is not for men? know quite a few men who love pink! (my husband being one of them) ;) Have a great (upcoming) week!

  2. Super cards Monika and I love how you've been so thoughtful about including elements relevant to the person who's going to receive them. I love that papertrey stripe stamp and especially how you used it on that hand drawn heart - so clever! Thanks for sharing at AAA Cards.

  3. Drei Karten an einem Tag!!!
    Das nenne ich superfleißig!!!
    Und eine schöner als die andere!!!

  9. These are all really gorgeous creations Monika!! Pink is OK for sending to men for Valentine's day!! :) WINK!!

  10. Beautiful cards, Monika! I am happy you are getting some time to do your crafts as I how busy you have been with the new job!

    I think some men like pink! I never see Brian wearing a pink colour but I have used pink on some of his cards and he seems to like it hehe! I think your hubby will love this gorgeous CAS card! And your Accounting boss will be delighted with her card - I should have had this stamp when I worked in Accounting! And the birthday card for your sister is simply beautiful - I know she will be so happy when she sees it! I like how you painted the flowers!

    I have not mailed your die cuts yet, dear friend. Brian called and told me the snowy roads are still too slippery so I am not going out today. Hoping no more snow falls, and may be tomorrow the roads will be better for driving.

  11. Such awesome eye candy! Your co worker and sister are going to love their cards. Thanks for joining in at JUGS and AAA

  12. What a fun card! I'm sure she is going to love it. Thanks for joining us this week at Just Us Girls!

  13. Monika, you're so great at making your own backgrounds, it's such a fun pattern and great image for your office manager. And the card is even more personal as you've used her favorite color too.
    Pink is a color I see becoming more and more popular for men's clothes, so I'm sure your hubby will stand that little bit of pink, it's a heart after all:) very elegant.
    And your third card has a lovely spring feel to it, beautifully colored flowers and nice faux stitched details.

  14. My, you have been busy! More fantastic makes on your blog since I last visited Monika! Sorry I can't get over as much as I'd like these days!
