What Time of Day are you?

You Are Sunrise

You enjoy living a slow, fulfilling life. You enjoy living every moment, no matter how ordinary.

You are a person of reflection and meditation. You start and end every day by looking inward.

Caring and giving, you enjoy making people happy. You're often cooking for friends or buying them gifts.

All in all, you know how to love life for what it is - not for how it should be.

Just Sttin' Here Thinking of You

Hello, my friends!! How are you? I have another Magnolia card that I want to show you...I combined old and new Tilda stamps, which you can find them here:


Sitting Summer Tilda-

Just Sttin'Here-

We have tons of Magnolia rubberstamps, but we can reuse them again and again and combined the stamps as well.Someone asked me if I can sale my old Magnolia rubberstamps,I agree I have many and wish to sell to her, but after I made this card, I will say NO.I am so sorry, because the rubberstamps are so precious and as I said before, Magnolia rubberstamps's accessories are specially designed just the right size for any of their figures to sit on.

Here I also included a sketch by myself for the very first time, I hope you will like it and try it.
I colored the stamped images with Copic Ciao Markers, colored pencils blended with paper stump and sansodor.I also distressed images with distress inks. Under the watercan I used Ranger Crackle Paint to let it crackled, and I also stamped Fancy Pants clear stamp on the My Mind Eye's patterned paper.

Hope that you find some inspirations on my card and have a happy stamping day!

Card Ingredients:

Magnolia rubberstamps-Watercan, Sitting Summer Tilda, Sentiment-Just Sttin' Here,Fancy Pants Clear Stamp.

A Sad News for me:-(

My special friend, Crissy, made an annoucement on her blog and this is what she said:

I want to announce to all who are interested that I have ended my contract with High Hopes Stamps and will no longer be illustrating for them. It was not an easy decision to make, as I have been with them since spring, 2005. I really don't want to stop sharing my stamp illustrations with you, and I hope I can continue in some form.

I do not know what Tina and Bethany have planned, so I would kindly ask that you direct any questions about High Hopes to them at their e-mail address here: and speak to Bethany.

I have the highest regard for the High Hopes family and have enjoyed the time we shared working together. Drawing for them these four years has given me so many things that I treasure; new friendships, insights into the stamping business, and growth as an artist and a leader. For that I will always be grateful.

Thanks to you too, my readers who started off as fans of High Hopes and became my friends! I still plan to do tutorials and share how-to techniques, as I love to do that for you. I know there is a bright future ahead of me in art and I really wish to continue illustrating stamp designs so that I can keep on sharing new images with you.

Magnolia Birthday Wishes

Finally.....I had a card to show you, after 3 months break from my crafting "career":-)) Yes, It's my career and I realized I can't live without it. I reorganized my stamping area and changed to a new location in my house to make it more convenince for me to make cards. I also surfed a lot of crafting blog when I was free and I noticed Magnolia had been added more DT member, congratulations to all who had been chosen. For the starting and a little warming up, I picked up last release stamp and make a card which I think it was fun and I try to think out side the box too.

The right side's patterned paper can be opened and I punched with Martha Stewart Doily Punch.The left side is vellum and I punched with the new punch that I purchased in May but no chance to use it.The "celebrate" patterned paper was handmade which I inked with various Distress inks then stamped with Stampin'Up -Celebrate on the cardstock.
I colored Tilda with Copic Ciao markers and colored pencils, blended with paper stump and sansodor.

I hope that you can find some inspiration on this card. For these hard time( I need to take care of my father and the whole family) I am unable to make many cards as I wish.I hope that you all understand and be patience with me.
