301220101104

Hey!

Happy new year everyone! Last post of the year! I hope the new year is bright and full of great things!

Every year I usually make at least one off white/gold combo Valentine card… So here it is!

The sentiments are handwritten… The hearts are hand drawn… I hope you like it!

I have distressed the embossed off white layer with my dried up marker!

Hello everyone!

The card that I have to show you today is based on the sketch at Skipping Stones.

281220101089

I finally got my Silhouette SD and I used it to make the two butterflies on this card as well as the big scalloped oval. Still have a bit of hand drawn element in this card. The middle oval layer is hand drawn. My measurements were a little out for the first and the scalloped oval, so I added another layer… I think it looks complete now.

I have shaded all the white areas with a darker tea pink water color pencil. I designed the pattern paper myself using overlays found online. The card looks gorgeous in real life, my cell phone has not captured the real pastel tea pink color of this card. The pink is not SO bright… it is very muted and looks really elegant…

Alrighty! That’s it for today! Happy crafting!

Hello everyone!

I am back with a new card… Here it is!

201220101052

I was in a hurry otherwise I would have used a better font for the sentiment. The sentiment is computer generated. The paper is an internet download. Flowers are punches. I love the BLUE ribbon! AGAIN the brackety frame is hand drawn, this will be the last time. Thanks to Tejal, I now have a template to make these!

That’s it!

Hey everyone! Just a quick post. Here is today’s card!

191220101041c

I have used the smaller asterisk die for the flowers, placed flat based pearl in the center and filled up the remaining space with rhinestones. The sentiment is hand written and the brackety frame is hand drawn. I have used three ribbons on this one! The Kraft cardstock kind of looks like cork here… well, it is a cellphone picture…

Alrighty! Catch you soon!

Feeling Lucky!

SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE POST FOR THE FREEBIE.

161220101014

Hello!!!

I forgot to mention earlier but my THIS card was selected as “cream in our coffee” at Playdate Cafe. And I won the last challenge at Skipping Stones Design for THIS card. I am feeling lucky.

Today I have a couple of butterflies to show you based on a sketch at Skipping Stones!

161220101010

The butterflies are printouts, I have colored them using normal markers. The sentiment is part of one of the the three sets that I won in Schlosser Design blog hop. I have outlined the Kraft and Brown cardstock with a gold marker, it was looking quite unfinished before. Another simple card! I have made another card using the same sketch, I will probably post it tomorrow!

All kinds of crooked!

Hey everyone! The card that I have to show you today is a tall card, and it was almost impossible to take a straight picture… hence the post title! This card is based on the sketch at Skipping Stones Design blog.

11122010992

My printer was almost out of ink hence the lines on the PP. I have designed the PP myself using Photoshop. The sentiment and brackety frame thingy is also done on Photoshop. The flowers are punches and the swirl is hand drawn. The design on the bottom right corner of the frame is part of the white border.

CAS- Clean & Simple

SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE POST FOR THE FREEBIE

Surprised? Shocked? Yes, I can do a Clean & Simple card! LOL Well at least I am trying to do a few CAS cards. Lets see where that goes!

Here is my card for the CAS challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and a CASE card challenge at The house that stamps built. 

08122010957

It was a quick card! Butterfly is a die cut and the sentiment is hand written… I moved the two ribbons at the base, further down compared to the card that was given to CASE.

On another note, remember this card?

 

24112010865

This was selected as one of the Fab 5’s in 2S4Y. I originally made this card for my aunt’s colleague. He is a senior doctor and is about to leave the job… well the card has reached there (WI,USA) and everyone was drooling over it! Now THAT is SOMETHING!

Keeping my fingers crossed now because my aunt told me that everyone wanted my “website url” to purchase some cards! Isn’t this awesome!? I am so thrilled!

I also have to send at least five cards to New York. A family friend wants to keep them at his store :) We will see how that goes and decide what to do!

WOWSERS!!! I am on cloud 9 people!!!

If this goes well I will be able to pay back my dad for the Silhouette that I recently purchased!

Bouquet of Love! (+Freebie)

****SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE POST FOR THE FREEBIE****

Oh well this is what I am naming this card! Hey everyone! Thank you to each and every one of you who took time out to comment. LOVE YOU!!! Thank you to those who listened to me and clicked one of the reactions while snagging the last freebie!

On to the card! This card here is made for a friend’s wife. He wanted THIS card in red and white for their anniversary… I changed the flowers a bit. I had my doubts about the color combination but it turned out alright I guess.

15112010773

I have dyed the red paper myself. The fat, roundish flowers and the fringy flower is handmade. I think I should have added one more butterfly on the opposite side. What say you? I still say the first card was WAY better!

P,S: Forgot to add a strip/ribbon that runs behind the white layer. (according to the PTW sketch)

Purple Flower and My Hand drawn swirls…(+FREEBIE)

**** SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE POST FOR THE FREEBIE ****

01122010917

Hello BLOGVILLE!

Like the flower??? I do!

01122010904

Alrighty, starting from the argyle design… these two stamps are part of the limited edition Schlosser Design’s Autumn Blessings. I used one of the stamps on THIS card. The frame stamp is also from the same company. The sentiment was a gift from, the incredibly sweet, Stef! The swirl is hand drawn. Outlined it with steel grey glitter (Hi Tejal, I know you are smiling!). The flower is hand made. The flower is gorgeous, I have colored it with three shades of purple and two shades of grey. Finished up the white layer with some hand stitching.

The smaller flap/layer is grey people… I distressed it with purple and some sandy colored pencils and chalk inks.

Now the interesting part. The black layer. Can you see its all shiny and glossy? well that is a plain, matte card stock (the same that I have used as a base card) turned into this glossy beauty by spraying it generously (3-4 times) with Lacquer.

If you want to try this, I suggest that you wait between times of spraying… let the first layer dry… otherwise you will have to wait overnight so that you don't smudge the lacquer when sticking it on your card (we are an impatient crowd, no one wants to wait over night). It is an aerosol paint, so I really don't think that you can use your heat gun to dry it LOL. Do this in an open space or a very well ventilated room… you don’t want to have poisoned lungs like mine :P

If you just spray the card stock lightly then you will achieve a shimmery effect. You can leave it at that too, it looks great! This helps giving life to a very plain, un-textured card stock. The more you spray, the glossier it will get.

Let me know if you try this!

Till then!
