A Manly Birthday Card, A Neswpaper Card and A Flower Birthday Card


I have a bit time to make some cards....I just Februar many of my friends has birthday...ok now I started with Manly Birthday Card.

I masked the area of the CAR (HERO ARTS Clear Stamp) and also masked the rest area and masked the cloud too. I sponged with these two distress Ink.

For finishing my card I use the stitched line DIE at the white cardstock and stamped the sentiment

Here is the finished card, I used my white pen to make lines at the street.

Challenges for my first card are:

Second card .....I really love this photo inspiration from TIME OUT challenge #50:

Also I took all my newspaper stamp (more are from Hero Arts) and started to stamped with black ink. The Miniatur building from Italy stamp sets, I have bought past year (2015) and I am happy that I could inked it now.

As you see I did not stamped Pizza at the bottom right of my card and I found other Italian Stamp I LOVE PIZZA, also as you see on the picture below, I stamped a bit of Pizza and a Glass of Wine. (at the right bottom part)

I stamped the Sentiment on a TAG and then gave red embossing powder and heat it. I choose my old collection of ribbon to finish my Tag and cut a bit and glued it at the left top area. My card called finish.

My third card .....I have an order from my sister's husband, that his Mom will have birthday at 5th of March. Also I choose a sketch for making this card from Just Add Ink challenge #300:

I was in a hurry at the time making this card. I have only 30 minutes time also I choose some stickers and pearls to complete my Blue Flower card (I am not good at making flower card I try my best to make more flower card :))

The Sticker Zum Geburtstag is German words, means to/for your Birthday. I simply choose flower stamp from my lovely friend Fanny in Jakarta (she gave me last time I meet her in Indonesia), many thanks dear sweet Fanny, I really love this stamp set. I have less Flower stamp and this make my collection a bit more :)

  18. You now have more stitched dies than I do. Love this one and how you made a road look with it. You're so great at inking skies and using the white pen to add detailing. So cool!
    Your TO card looks very different than mine although we both were inspired by the print. Your card has a great vintage look, it want to make me travel and it would suit any of my colleagues.
    Beautiful flower card too, more detailed than what you normally make, but without going overload. Perfect for a grownup woman.

  19. These are gorgeous makes, Monika. My fave is the newsprint project for TO. I like the retro look.
