Gingerloft – Tie a yellow ribbon

26052011027

Hello everyone! I hope you guys are well…  It’s time again for another challenge at Gingerloft and this time the theme is “Tie a Yellow Ribbon”. You have until June 11 at midnight to play our yellow ribbon challenge.  The random winner will receive 3 digs of their choice from the Gingerloft store and the top 3 will be asked to be the GDT.

My inspiration for the colour palette is this image from Pinterest.

I have been making quite a few of these lil wall hangings lately. They look cute. The sentiment is from the Tire Swing Set at Gingerloft.

The flowers are handmade, except for those tiny four petal ones. The yellow rhinestones are from Pie Lane. These are self adhesive rhinestones. They were so easy to stick, no messy gluey stuff on them see!  You can visit Pie Lane’s Facebook page HERE. They have some really amazing stuff in their Shop… do check out the Silhouettes they have to offer (amazeballs)!

Ok guys our next challenge is our Asian Inspiration blog hop challenge (with quite a few prizes along the way), please check out this post HERE for the nitty gritty.

I hope you like the mini wall hanging. Don't forget to stop by the links I have mentioned… you will be missing a lot if you skip the links.

Happy crafting!!!

xoxo

Flashback Friday 11.0 - *First Wedding Card*

 

SCROLL DOWN TO THE END OF THE POST FOR THE FREEBIE

WOW! Cant believe I used to make so many flowers from scratch. I had some stamina back then! LOL

I am posting my first wedding card for the Flashback Friday Challenge. I was blog hoping and saw their challenge, still have 21 hours to enter.

DSC00823flashback

ETA (after the first comment) I drew the flowers and the swirl freehand and cut em up. So all this is done from scratch.

All flowers are handmade and so are the flower centres. I had no punches, no embossing folders back then.

I remember this card being a total HIT, my aunt asked me to make one like this so she could frame it up! Hope you guys like it!

P.S: I am entering this in Inspire me Fridays, I hope some of you (who don't have punches or tools) will be inspired by this.

Big-ass Flower! LOL

SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE POST FOR THE FREEBIE.

20052011017All pics in this post are from my cell phone, my camera died on me AGAIN!

Hello everyone!! 

It’s been a while since I have played at PDCC and Case Study both, so today’s card’s colour palette is based on the colour story at PDCC and the inspiration comes from the GORGEOUS Sarah Martina Parker’s card. Along with these two, my very bold and colourful inspiration comes from a challenge at ICR.

        

Here’s my card…

20052011012 

The big ass flower is handmade (obviously) and so is the flower centre! I gotta buy some huge gems and pearls for my big BIG flowers.

That colourful layer is just a normal piece of white scrap paper that I painted with poster paints, embossed and distressed with teal ink. I hand stitched along the edges and distressed it very roughly to make it look like it’s fabric…

I didn't have any pearly swirls/flourish so I made one of my own. Instead of using a sentiment, like in the inspiration card, I chose to add butterflies… I HAD to add butterflies if there is such a BIG flower, right?! RIGHT! lol

Here is another view:

Hope you guys like it. Not my favourite though, my parents didn’t quite like it too. Oh, and yeah…. check me out making double looped bows! AWESOME! :)

Hugs and kisses

This card is really pretty and OMG so clean! LOL  I have always, always wanted to make a white card and it always gets dirty. This time I succeeded (somewhat). Too bad couldn't take a good picture and again friends my camera is giving me trouble. It has started to show horizontal lines. And to make things worse my cellphone’s touch screen is playing games too! Sometimes it works and most of the times it doesn't.

Interesting Birthday

SCROLL DOWN TO THE END OF THE POST FOR THE FREEBIE

DSC03221

Hello hello!

Thank you very much for the birthday wishes everyone! I had an interesting birthday yesterday. Started off with this big BIG eagle coming out of nowhere and bumping right into me. BUMPED, literally! My friend says it was a Kite and I am like, whatever it was but the bugger was HUGE! The winds have been really rough since a couple of days and yesterday they were ridiculously strong so I am guessing that must be the reason behind the bird’s fall. And then this BIG piece of hard plastic scrap came flying out of the sky and landed a feet from where I was standing! Broke a couple of flower pots with the force it hit. This is not it, there is a lizard in this story too! lol A nasty lizard fell off (god knows from where) right in front of my feet! I heard the sound of it hitting the tiled floor…. phichaaak hahahaha… After this I just looked up at the sky and asked God; Freaky much? I hope you don’t have anymore surprises up your sleeve lol

I have a very simple and quick card for you today. I wanted to enter this for the “Less is More” thanks/congratulations challenge but I don’t think it qualifies as ‘less is more’.

DSC03220

Nothing much to say about this card. The teal layer was a scrap piece lying around so I picked it up, embossed it and then inked it up. Looked good to me so thought I’d just make a simple card that will show off the design I love the texture on this and the grungy look.

Thank you again for the emails and comments.

Gingerloft Challenge – Under the Sea

DSC03200

Hello bloggers! It’s time for another challenge at Gingerloft and this time the theme is “Under the Sea”. Please come play with us!

The image that I have used is called “Tropical Dolphin” and is available at the Gingerloft Store. My card looks really vibrant and bright but the colours are subtler in person and much nicer looking.  The star fish are roughly hand drawn.The image is coloured with regular Faber Castell colour pencils.

Make sure you visit the Gingerloft Challenge blog and check out the awesome DT cards! I still haven't regained my health so keeping the post short. Tomorrow is my birthday and it seems like I will be spending most of it in bed :/

BIG hugs
