Adorable Anniversary Wish for Deary!

Assalamualaikum and Good Day,

Congratulations to all married couple in the world, especially for those who's celebrating anniversary!

This is another trishutter card that I made last month, a PINK PURPLE theme card, with mixed flowers this time. Unlike handmade paper flowers, artificial flowers are sold everywhere and they're a bit more easy to handle. So it is LESS SPECIAL than a paper-made flowers, I guess.

but through being the right mate"

Alhamdulillah, this is actually my FIRST try on 'bigger' paper roses. YES, they're bigger than paper roses I've made before. It took almost 5 months for me to study on these paper roses. I start with asking people, watching videos, read, staring at those pictures of high class paper roses, plus a lot of imagination, yes! It takes a lot of TIME and EFFORT.

Even when I finally found the right ways on how to make it real, still, the rose is just too tricky for me to start. It's a TRICKY rose, but yet very PRETTY and I love it. So I fall for it again. They are not yet perfect but I believe that imperfection makes them special. "Perfection is BORING" by the way (^,~)

These sweet couple in the pictures are my friend, Lily and her husband. They had their 2nd anniversary last month and they're expecting for their first child now. Bundle of JOY is on the way (^__^)

I really like the center part of the card. The idea of placing a blank card there was to give nice space for her to write speech or love notes for her husband. I used Belinda's Border stamp set from Lawn Fawn to create the love lines at the bottom of the card. I also use the same love lines for the other section of the card, to relate and to balance well.

"Love does not consist in gazing at each other,
but in looking outward together in the same direction"
~ Antoine de Saint Exupery ~

I used several pictures of them to match up with the card and decorations, but I can't really decide which one fits best, since I really want my lovely blank card to stick onto the center, plus, all those pictures are really nice. So I think it's best to let my friend do her part of choosing which suits them best (^___^)

"Every LOVE STORY is beautiful but ours is my favorite"

So that's ALL for now. I really hope you enjoy your stay.
Thank you and have a blissful marriage!

Simply, Friendly, Birthday Wishes!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t and Good Morning,

YES, I got to admit it. This is my favorite birthday card that I made so far. It may not as hard as typography quilling, not as good as trishutter card and surely not as strong as easel card, but I really love this card for how simple the card is and how much time it took for me to get the idea of making it look this way.

And for the reason, I hardly let go of this one! A card with very friendly colors. It's great to put little things up, here and there, combines all things possible to make it right. I use almost everything that matches, from my stash. It's like a SCRAP challenge for me and I got to finish it on time.

To be honest, I rarely choose blue (of any kind) or blue-like papers or pattern to work on but everything happened to blend well this time. I really like my turquoise card stock that I bought long ago and I really want it to match the vintage dark yellow pattern papers that I found from my collection. So I added more papers of close tones, white and brown fans, blue roses and yellow daisy, also white bows, banner and pearl.

“I’ll write the word blue in green and when I ask you what color it is,
the proper response is turquoise”

It is super not-easy to manually cut all those circles, but that is the sweet way of creating different patterns on card, with less tools and less materials. 

"If you LOVE someone, put their name in a CIRCLE,
not a heart, a heart can be broken, but a circle goes on forever"

"Do what you can, with what you have, not what you need"

My favorite part of this card is the white 'frame' that I made using Belinda's Borders stamp set from LAWN FAWN, such a very sudden idea that turned out to be PERFECT and also the white fan and blue roses had balanced everything. OKAY!

A very short, simple and quick note to get a date (^___^)

LAST but not LEAST,

I think that's all for now.
Thank you all and have a blissful day!

Typography Quilling: Happy Birthday!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t. and Hello all,

"LOVE builds the warmest nests"
So true, isn't it?

I guess this post would be my first post of less words written here. It happens when I don't really have things to say, several pictures of lovely card would be enough, perhaps (^___^) I'm sharing another birthday card that I made with typography quilling on top of card, along with roses and bugs.

"This lucky little lady bug
has landed here to stay,
To make my garden pretty
and keep the weeds away"

“Embossed letters represent the topography of typography. ”
~ Jarod Kintz, This Book Has No Title ~

A Malay saying equates the ladybird (KUMBANG) as the MAN and flowers (BUNGA) as the WOMEN itself and it says "Laksana KUMBANG menyeri bunga, KUMBANG terbang, BUNGA pun layu" tells us that "It's MAN that lighten WOMEN, and women soon be faded as the MAN went away"

"Lovely little ladybug
sent from heaven above
please watch over my garden
and fill it up with love."

A cute 'to-do' list attached inside the card as a quick dating invitation (^___^)

"KESAYANGAN" is a Malay word refers to your beloved.

"Ladybugs all dressed in red
Strolling through the flowerbed.
If I were tiny just like you
I'd creep among the flowers too!"
~Maria Fleming~

To be continued in my next post. Thank you.
