Back to Basic~~ Crescendo Trio Bookmarks

Hello my friends/crafters ,
How are you recently ?  I heard that it's spring in northern part of the earth and its autumn in the southern part. It's time for recharge and restart, I think. Wherever and whenever you are, I hope that you keep your energy on with whatever you do.
I tittled my post as "Back to Basic" 

I started my crafting journey in 2005 ( long way to remember the date, though)
I had invited to join Magnolia Rubber stamps Sweden for their Design Team in June, 2008.
10 years in the wonderful and beautiful design team keep me growing and growing , either inner or outer way, specially in my crafting journey. Not to mention the beautiful people I meet in crafting journey.

Recently, maybe one year ago, I found that I can't concentrate on my coloring for a long hours. Due to my presbyopia, I didn't do much in my coloring and projects.I feel quilty. I feel lost. I wonder if I am able to do my crafting again? Its my hobby and I wish to keep on whenever I can.

I rethink and try to remember why I join the crafting ? How I started my crafting?  I still remember I didn't have many crafting supplies and tool when I started to craft. Everything is basic and simple. I feel happy and satisfied when I made a simple card. I want to have the feeling again when I can't do much on my projects due to my presbyopia.

Distress inks and some simple rubber stamps are the solution !


I hope you get inspired if you lost your mojo by the simple projects I made. I called them Cresendo Trio Bookmarks. Show me yours if you make one ! 

Have a nice day ! <3

 Magnolia rubber stamps product~~ Heart rubber stamp, Love dies. Old Script Background. Tomorrow Sentiment. You can ask Magnolia if they still carries these product . 

         Very typical distress inks color combo~ Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed and Stormy Sky

 I love the Magnolia Love tag dies. So Versatile, so classy.

 I love this color combo so MUCH. Chipped Shappire, Pumice Stone and Crushed Olive.

Magnolia Flower Girl Tilda Pocket Card

My new card to share with crafting lovers on this beautiful day !
I made a pocket birthday card for a friend and hope that she will like my card.
I lost my crafting mojo on and off and I always suffer to start to craft when I have free time.
Whenever I have inspiration to craft and I make something that I love to.

Tilda is from I believe in Unicorn collection and the bench is from old collection. Magnolia has a lot of bench stamps , you can search their website to buy the stamps. Magnolia Sweden. 

As usual , I stamped Tilda with Archival black ink from Ranger Ink on Langton Hot Press 300gsm watercolor paper. Then I colored Tilda with Ranger Distress inks. I know I need to practice and improve my coloring skill.

 The celebration banner, balloons cutting dies are from Magnolia Doohickey Volume 5 Limited Edition. They have Doohickey collection, you can purchase from here: Magnolia Doohickey

 I made a pocket for this card, so that I can insert a small card inside with beautiful sentiment. Paper flowers from Prima Marketing and Kodt and Godt. I love the doilies so much and I nearly can't live without it in my crafting. The doilies stock is nearly finish, may I know where could I purchase this beautiful doilies?

Its always fun to make handmade card, I enjoy every part of it. Although the process is quite long, sometimes I need 2 days to complete a card, but I am always so satisfied with the final result. I used patterned papers from Magnolia. They have very beautiful patterned papers, which you can purchase from here: Magnolia Sweden 

Sometimes people asked me if I sold my cards. My answer is NO. Not that I don't want  money, LOL...but just because it's handmade, I can't made in bulk. Every single piece is UNIQUE. I appreciate my effort and so that I hope you to appreciate the making process too.

I made another small card to stamp the beautiful sentiment on it. I also embossed the card with bird and swirl embossing folder from Cuttlebug. I colored the embossing folder with Ranger Distress ink then put the paper into the folder and then embossed with my big shot machine.

I also used Magnolia cutting dies, sweet lovely lace to make the beautiful border on the card. Then I colored the paper and border edges with Ranger Distress Ink- Walnut Stain.

Everyone need to have some hobby...I have found about you ? Any feedback, questions? suggestion to let me know? You can email me ! I love your comments. Hope that you have a beautiful day with the most loved one!
