And here are two cards that I made for the Amuse VSN: Winter Olympics. My brain was fried and lack of mojo. Sorry.
Card 1 - "Triple Inspiration", to create a card for the person in your life that inspires you!
Of course, it's my totally awesome MOM, she is the BOMB! She likes all things simple, nothing fancy at all. And when I was little, she always bring me to the park. Good times, good times!!!
So, I chose the Swing girl stamp, I kept everything simple, and I didn't even use my Copics.
Card 2 - "Bundle Up" - to create a card which fold over each other, and has to be wrapped at least twice.

I kept this really simple. The challenge is "Sew Cute", since I don't know how to sew... I added some faux stitches on her hat and dress with a white gel pen.
What else I did?
I colored the image with Copics (E000, E00, E49, E59, R35, Y06, Y38, YG11, YG17, YG25, YR23), I added some flock on the pom-pom on her hat, and I added a hint of blue with a dabber for the background. And of course, a "smile" ribbon.

Hope you are hungry! We are doing some major COOKING at AiFactory today by the DTs. We have a chance to play with these awesome recipe cards. Check them out HERE... they come in 5 different colors, I used the black ones. They are so fun, just print, cut, and crop along the marked lines. Viola!
As for me, I'm all about simple cooking... I love pre-made Trade Joe's meals, my favorite... Orange Chicken + Vegetable Fried Rice + Veggie Bird Nest = A perfect meal!!! But, even if I cook for real meal, I don't measure anything at all. So, I got an idea while reading the Food Network magazine. The magazine has a section called "Get your Greens", a bunch off yummy snack in celebration for St. Patrick's Day. This Avocado hummus sounds yummy and very easy to make, I have to give it a try!

So, what do you think? Does this tickle your fancy?

Goodies that I used:
Digital image Michu is a magician from Softpencil, the sentiment is from Amuse art stamps.

I colored the image with Copics (C1, C3, C4, E41, R89, 110), black spica pen, sakura glaze pen. Embellishments included star chipboard in black diamond sticklers, ribbon, mini sparkles dots.

Oh my, what a fun and challenging week! Gone bananas with 3D... I think I need a shopping fix after this. :) How about an AiFactory designer purse? Instead of LV, we should have AIF, I bet it will look really cool! I have seen this paper-made wallet from my LSS a while ago, and I was surfing the SCS resource page and find the tutorial. I'm super excited and want to try it out.
I used the beautiful 2010 Vintage Printable Calendar, I cut out the beautiful medallion, distressed the edges with Tim Holtz weathered wood ink pad. And I added lots of silver blings. Just in case, if you are wondering... I used Bazzil cs for this.
Later, I think I should put some $$$ in this, so that I can go shopping.
Please also visit my AiFactory's sisters and check out their beautiful designs.
Want to own Vintage printable calendar? You can purchase it here or join us at the AiFactory Challenge & Freebies Blog for a chance to win!
Too cute but it was a super tough challenge! I have to make anything but a card! Oh boy, I was twirling in my chair for days... Thanks goodness for the PCP 3D Tuesday Challenge Group, and for this week's features Planet Something Fun, there is a wonderful tutorial on how to make this planter box. You can find the tutorial HERE! I figured it would be perfect for these little bugs. :)

Anyways, it's time for a little bit of TGF, the Case of the Curious Card. Hope you like it. :)
I used my of new favorite... Basic Grey Origins, label 7 nesties. Of course, I used TGF's stamps - Chelsea and Talk Loud, I colored Chelsea with Copics (E00, E43, E53, E55, E57, G20, G40, G82). The yellow cs is actually white cs but I inked it with Tim Holtz ink pad in mustard seed. And yes, I also used stardust pen and Copic Spica.

I kept this simple, I stamped the image in versamark vintage sepia on ivory cs, then I used Tim Holtz ink pad and dabbed it with antique linen and tea dye to create the vintage look. I added some extra touches with spica pens in baby blue, sand, and gold.

I absolutely adore this image from Bee Crafty. You can get it here. And I figured why not try out on the Bee Crafty challenge too. The theme is to create a romantic or loving theme. So, I used the dp from American Crafts I heart you. I colored with my Copic Marker (E000, E00, E41, E53, E55, R29, RV11, RV32, V99) and I edged the white cs with toffee chalk ink pad. And the sentiment is from Rubber Soul.
Can't wait until tomorrow... Valentine Day! Plus, it's also Chinese New Year!

As you know... normally I would have 2 posts on Thursdays. But for this week, both AiFactory and Softpencil DTs are working with super adorable image(s) from our talenated Elizabeth. And do you know that Softpencil's images can be purchase at AiFactory too?
Card 1 - Be mine.
The Softpencil's DT was challenged to make a SPRING CARD (the tutorial can be found HERE), and the image we used is called Be Mine.
Goodies that I used:
DP from Basic Grey Sugar Rush, Michu is colored with Copic Markers (B91, B93, B95, E34, Y32), stardust pens, flowers were sprayed with gimmer mist in peppermint stick and hydrangea (additional blue on the mini flowers were airbrushed with copic markers B95) and pearls.
Card 2 - Many hearts.
The challenge for the AiFactory's DT is to create a card with lots of hearts with the image a lovely couple (one of my favorite!) So, I figured what better is to use valentine dp, lots of hearts and even cupids. Hehe.
Goodies that I used:
DP from Teresa Collins crush, bazzill cs, image was colored with Copic Markers (E000, E00, E55, G20, N0, N2, N4, RV11, RV32, R37), and heart blings.

I was in the mood for pink and purple, so I embossed the pink cs with embossing folder, then the ovals are cut and embossed with my nesties.
Play along! HERE is the details!
