Thanks card & hello card

Hi, there!
This is the post of card making!

Just finished two cards to use paper piecing technique. I couldn't join the paperpiecing challenge at Hero Arts, maybe about a month ago.
I found this is so interesting!!! after I did this technique. :) I want to make some cards in the near future.

This is the result.
Made this card for my aunt, always think about me. I met her at my mother's ceremony last month. Yes, she's an elder sister of my mother.
I'm going to send this to her with a book and a bobbin lace bookmark which I'm now making.

And this is a closeup.
This is the first time to use this 'Flower Box' cling stamp.

And the other is to use vibrant colors for one of my Japanese virtual friends.
I usually have actual meet after we met on internet, and I have 52 friends - the half is the Japanese and the other half is the foreigners - in the world, we could have the opportunities.
She is really lovely lady and one of my good friend, but she has been sick already when we met about 6 years ago. We usually contact using e-mails or snail mails. I made this one to cheer her up.
I used the bird stamp- this is my favorite- with the cling 'Flower Box'.

stamp used:
HA Design Brocks Antique Flower Background / S5264
HA Clear Design / CL341, CL342, CL182
HA Cling Flower Box / CG127

other supplies:
Bazzil Basics CS, Kaiser notecard, Basic Grey PP
Tsukineko Versafine / Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black
Distress Stickeles / Rock Candy, Copic Markers etc.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
Have a beautiful week!

  10. Hi, Kiara! Thanks for your visiting and for your lovely comment!
    And also thanks so much for telling me the facts.

    > every time my comment bounced back
    Oh my! This is really, Kiara? I'm so sorry I don't know the reason why your comments were bounced back...
    Every time, I was published all the comments from my dear friends and the peoples whom I know. I just confirm the names at the time when I publish them here - Only the cases, the comments from the people I haven't ever seen their names, I read their comments before publishing.
    (The reason I take the way to be held lovely visitors' comments temporary for publishing them here is just only for escaping the spams.
    I put the diary and the BBS in my website, Graphideart in the past, there were so many (10-60) spams in A MINUTE - It seems that they used several softwares for sending many spams automatically for the target-, I had annoyed by their acts. So I decided to use this blogger to serves as my diary or BBS.)

    Hope you have a beautiful weekend and a wonderful holiday season!
    Love, Tomo

  11. Love your two wonderful cards Tomo! I'm sure your aunt and friend will appreciate and love them too. I hope you post a photo of the bobbin lace bookmark you are making for your aunt - I love seeing your lace work.

  12. Love them all Tomo so beautiful!!!! Hugs,Kathy
