Window card with a view

Submitted this card to A blog named Hero challenge.
The theme of challenging is window card with a view.

I used Scallop Greenery stamp to make a view.
 Colors of view are purple and pink inks with perfect pearls. 
I used my finger to blend these colors, and sprayed water mist before stamping.

I used compasses cutter to cut circles and thin frames.
I don't have silhouette machine or any die cut machine! :(
 I am always forced to use my hands...
So  my cards are genuine handmade! :) 

Stamps: Scallop Greenery (H5365/HeroArts)
            Newspaper Background (S5601/Hero Arts)
Papaer: Melody 6x6 by Prima Marketing
Inks: Chewing Gum, Lavender Sachet by Jenni bowlin
       Iris Chalk ink by HeroHues

Birthday card Young deer

Another sketch challenging! :D and this card is also entering HeroArts April contest.
Colored young deer from HeroArts with water coloring
 using distress ink (vintage photo) from ranger.
I'm not a coloring person, I'm not good at it... but this little deer is exception! LOL
A tree is paper piercing technique, used lilybeedesign "Double Dutch" 6x6 pad.
This is another great paper pad, I'm going to use this a lot for sure. ;)
Guess what, I broke out holiday stamp set (HeroArts) for the tree! hee hee
And, the white embossed stripe is actually Newspaper tulips! (also from HeroArts)
 I used that stamp as grass. Ha! :)
I stamped image a couple of times to make look like grass.

Paper Piercing

Entering 2nd round of HeroArts April contest.
I played along with some pretty patterned papers using
 one of the HeroArts April contest sketches.
I like paper piercing, it's time consuming sometimes,
but I think it's great way to have some fun with using stamps and papers at the same time. 

*Stamps* (all from HeroArts)
Envelope Pattern on kraft cardstock (white emboss)
Whimsical Houses (tree and grass)
Le Journal (Stick Candy by Jenni Bowlin ink)
This is big (sentiment : JUST A HUG)
*Patterned Paper*
Cosmo Cricket "Tea for Two" 6x6 pad
Glossy accents (red hearts)
Black&White twine
Brown Jute ribbon (for butterfly)
White gel pen by uni-ball Signo

Cosmo Cricket

Cosmo Cricket 6x6 paper pad which is Tea for Two is super adorable!
Glad that I bought this pad.
Coudn't help making an another Mother's day card. :)
I tried to make some super tiney spiral roses, it took a loooong time ( I have no idea how many pieces I made! redoing over and over... ) and time consuming, but finally I made it. Whew!

Stamp: HeroArts ( Happy Definition )
Paper: Cosmo Cricket "Tea for Two" 6x6 pad

Happy Mother's Day

I used "Yours Truly" 6x6 pad from Echo Park for this card.
I adore Echo Park 6x6 pads, they are double sided, and versatile.
I bought this paper pad for making Valentine cards but it's definitely usable for other theme!
I thought this works for Mother's card perfectly. 
The paper of rosette is from the same pad too. :)

Rainbow Card

This is the second card that I made to enter the HeroArts card contest.

I layered stripe pattern papers to make it look like a rainbow.
The stripe pattern papers are HA digital kit, it's called "Rough stripe pattern".

I drew curved shape onto each paper, cut them out, and layered them together, 
but I realized it's something missing and wrong... 
So I shaved off all the edges of paper by scissors and rolled them up. 
Then, "Ta da!!" much better! :D
