1, 2, 3

And once again I missed the dead line for the Mojo Monday challenge...
But I really love this card so I decided to put it here any way.
I made this card using acetate and combined three different challenges.
I used the sketch from MM, used a knot (365 cards - day 269) and used my lovely punches for crazy 4 challenges.

And some close ups

Hope you'll like it!
Chen :)

Sending {love} your way

I'm a bit late (of course) but I'm having one of these weeks when I don't have any time for my scrap (and yet I managed to create something...).
This card was made for Victoria's challenge and was made by Mercy's Tuesday sketch from last week...

I really love the tree, which I cut my self (yeah me!).
I'd love to hear (and read) some comments : )

Victoria's unique candy

Victoria from blue jelly bean blog is giving us a chance to win some great stuff by giving to others.
She's raising funds for
SANDs - Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity
3 years ago, she and her husband lost their first baby Flynn when he was just two days old following birth complications at 42 weeks.
Sands there are people who understand what it's like because many of them have been through this experience themselves and now they are helping and support
ing others. How can we help?
Victoria wants us to send her our handmade cards and gifts wrapped with envelopes in a saleable state. She will then pass these on to
SANDs who will sell and keep 100% of the proceeds to help set up new SANDs
groups across the UK.

Here's a picture of her candy

And here's how to do it -
1. Create a card or handmade gift. Cards can be for any occasion or theme.
2. You can create as many items as you like, each item = 1 entry to her candy.
3. Email her at bluejellycandy@sky.com for an address to post your items to
pop your name down on her blog for each item sent. E.g. 5 cards = 5 entries. No limit to number of entries per person.
4. Post a photo of her candy along with a link on your blog to help raise awareness.
5. Candy closes 9th December 2009.
You can find more information on her blog.
Thank you Victoria for the great chance to do for others and good luck!

Mojo Monday

It's another MM challenge, the first one for this month. I fell for this sketch the minute I saw it and set down right away to make a card.
I used Stacey's color challenge - pink, yellow, red, black and white.

When I saw that nut stamp at Michelle's I knew I'd use it with this sentiment (from Hero Arts) and had to buy it (for 1$ you would too...).
I stamped it with watermark ink and embossed the yellow paper.
And that's it.
Thanks for stoping by,

365 cards - day 237

The challenge for this day was to use 5 different stamps on our card.
I use my new stamps set (I just LOVE it) and made a vintage style card which is really not my style, but I like it anyway.

I used some ribbon's left over and added 3 buttons for the final touch.

Happy Birthday card

Around the globe, everyone's talking about the winter and the rain and here in Israel it rained for a few moments in the north. And I missed that...
I really hope that by the end of November I could show you some raining in Israel (but don't hold your breath...).
In the mean time, here's a new birthday card (it seems like that's the only kind I have…) I made using the sketch from The sweetest thing.

I used BG Offbeat paper pack. The embellishments are made of foam and I cut them with the cuttlebug.

A wedding card

My mom had to go to a wedding of someone from her work and she asked for a card.
I made her this one

And of course she ended up taking an old card I made 6 month ago...
Any way, I love this one better...

יום שני, 5 באוקטובר 2009


A few months ago my friend turned to me and offered me the opportunity to be, along with two more stunning creators, part of the first Israeli Scrapbooking magazine. And so, after month of hard work, the Scrapaholic magazine was published. Even though we still have some problems, we have reached our fourth issue and that is something we don't take for granted at all. In the magazine you will find interviews with scrappers from Israel and abroad, photographic tutorials, five-minute cards, challenges and much more.
Every issue has a theme and for this issue it's nature and recycling. We had to make an album page using recycling and reused materials.

I made another page for my trip to Europe album.

I used an old office envelope and some wrap paper and plastic.

Stacy's Jewelry Color Inspiration Challenge

It's time for the final Jewelry Color Inspiration Challenge at Stacy's blog. The colors for this challenge were Not Quite Navy, Ruby Red, Creamy Caramel & Very Vanilla (a wonderful color inspiration).

Taylored Expressions #76 sketch was perfect for the challenge

I used DCWV Green stack and cardstock. I cut the bird myself using a brown office envelope and add a ribbon.

Have a great day! :)

As seen on Laurel's blog...

It's readers' week at the 365 Cards blog and for this challenge the guest reader was Laurel Seabrook. She's a very talented creator and her blog is amazing.

The theme for the challenge was Peek-a-Boo to you! - create a fun flap somewhere on your card. Laurel made a cute card that inspired me at once so I set down and created this card

and when it opens the first time-

and the second time -

The base is a DCWV cardstock. I also used Basic Grey - Urban Prairie paper peck.
Have a great day!!

365 Cards - Day 153 - Tag, you're it!

Happy Birthday, Girl!

In times when I don't have any muse I found that challenges are a great way to get it back.
Last week I accidently discover Stacey's blog and I'm in love with it ever since :) Every week there's a jewelery inspiration challenge. The jewelery this week is this necklace and the colors are Perfect Plum, Really Rust, More Mustard and Very Vanilla.

Here is the card that I came up with

Some new cards

I can only draw one thing and that's birds. And let me tell you - my birds often look nothing like birds suppose to look like...
I didn't create anything for a while, but a few days ago I set down to make some cards. I had it all figures out in my head - the sketches, the colors and everything.
Needless to say - it came nothing like I meant it and so I can't use them for any challenge...
Well, here they are

I used DCWV and S.E.I papres.
Hope you'll like them.

What's cooking?

Once again, combining challenges can really help you make a card :)
Here I combined 3 challenges, all are great.
I used CPS sketch, 365 cards - day 80 and a little Secret Scraper's glitter.
Here's the sketch

and here's my card

The papers are from DCWV's Nana's kitchen stack.
It's a bit different from what I'm used to, but I like it :)

{Thank You}

This week's challenge at Stamp Something was to create a Thank you card, while casing one of Lauren’s cards. I choose this one. I love the colors and the scallop. Of course I combined the challenge with another one - the Color Throwdown #43.
I changed my card from Lauren’s but I really was inspired by her card.
Here's what I came up with

I kept it clean and simple and had fun creating this card :)

On this Thursday challenge on Instyle stapms blog thay came up with this cute sketch

I just signed up for a fall cards challenge, so that came right on tome for me :)

I used the sketch to this card using Basic Grey's Mellow paper pad and Hero Arts stamps.

I stitched the buttons to the background paper (and I'm SO proud of myself for that).
I hope you'll like it as much as I do.

CP Sketch #14

Hi everyone, thank you for the great comments, it means a lot to me.
Last week's Card Patterns sketch was a great one and so I set down and made a card, but I really didn't like it (it was ugly! really). so, this Saturday I made another one, which I like better (and that wasn't hard to do...).

Here's the great sketch

And this is the card I made

I used my lovely nestabilities, arrows and hearts die cuts and swiss dots embossing folder.
The papers are from DCWV - textured paper and the stamps are from 7 gypsies.
That's it :)

Day 71 - Super sketchy Sunday

Yes, I know it's already Thursday :)

I really love the sketch that we had to work with on this Sunday's challenge - Super sketchy Sunday.

Here's what I made for the challenge -

I'm sorry, but you should know by now that I really can't take a good picture, and as much as I like to blame my cute red camera - I really can't, it's all because of me...

The beautiful papers are, surprisingly ;), Basic Grey - Offbeat collection, the stamp is from Hero Arts set - Trees, Birds & Messages (I love it) and the ink is Versa fine - vintage sepia.

I really love this card, hope you will too.

Chen :)
