Ca-yoot CAS!

DSC03603

Hello! I have another CAS card!

DSC03600

Oh this is so cute! It didn't come out right in the picture but it is CA-YOOT! I have used Pie Lane self adhesive holographic gems here as leaves, in my previous cards I used them as butterfly’s body. These gems are BEE-UTIFUL!!! They sparkle and give out the most amazing colours! They kinda look like Swarovski crystals.

Here is a close up:

DSC03605

Absolutely stunning lil things! LOVE THESE!

The flowers are punched. The ribbons and pearls are from my stash.

CASE Study with Colour Splash

This is my third card for PDCC. You can check out the first two HERE and HERE.

DSC03590

Literally a splash of pink!

The grey paper that you can see (originally white) was first painted with black and silver poster paints, I scribbled a few lines around the edges with silver marker and distressed it with colour queue black. I then embossed it with Sizzix Texture Plate, named “Distressed” and added faux stitching.

The white embossed shape was cut out from a template that I found online. The black frame is Silhouette cut and was in my stash since quite some time.

Keeping it short as I am not feeling too well. Oh and I won Cup of the Week last week for THIS card! How awesome is that!!?! Found out about it just now :)

Happy crafting people!

Yellow Yellow Dirty Fellow

My blog went AWOL last night so most of you must have missed my earlier post. You can check it out HERE.

DSC03596

Hello hello!

So blogger was playing games with me this fine morning. All of my blogs (test blogs etc etc) disappeared from my Dashboard! I was shit scared! I got about twenty mails from you wonderful visitors asking me what's wrong and what's up with my blog, thank you so much for the concern sweeties!

             

On to my card that I have to show… it’s based on the sketch at card patterns, colour splash at PDCC, Tuesday Trigger,Yvonne’s challenge and Simply scrapping crafts. Here you go…

It’s a simple card, I have used CB butterfly diecut, the houndstooth paper scrap left from the last card. The chevron/zigzag pattern is also a print out, I designed this myself on Photoshop. The twine was originally ivory so I coloured it with my best friend, Crayola marker in “Goldenrod”.

The scallops are hand cut and I have added pearls along the scalloped edge.

The yellow diamond gems are from Pie Lane and the sentiment is from TradeFish Designs.

I like this one, it’s cute!

hugs,

E

I Love Pencil Shading.

DSC03562

Hello everyone! I have a card to show you today. It is based on the colour story at PDCC which is Black and White with a SPLASH of any one colour.

DSC03573

I have had this flower design printed out for quite some time. The print is pencil shaded. I always prefer pencil shading to colouring.

The houndstooth pattern on the hand cut scallops is also a printout. I know you can see the pearls on the flowers, but can you see the pearls placed between scallops (in the valley)?

The shaded grey lace and ribbons are from my stash… These two butterflies are the last of the tiny ones… you wont be seeing these till I get a new Silhouette blade.

The sentiment is from TradeFish Designs.

Here is another view.

DSC03560

I took about fifty shots of this card and not even one came out right. But I like how everything came together. I especially like the houndstooth pattern here, it gels everything together.

Thanks for stopping by!

xoxo

It’s Raining “BOYS”!

DSC03531

Hello bloggers! How are you guys doing? I have a card to show you today based on the sketch at Skipping Stones. Here you go!

DSC03526

The “baby hammock” image is from Bows and Berries. The twin heart stickers and self adhesive heart gem is from Pie Lane. I have attached the gem heart in such a way that it looks as if the baby is holding it :)

The alphabets are hand drawn, cut (I still don't have a new Silhouette blade) and stamped with one of the stamps from Skipping Stones Pumpkin Seed set.

The embossed background design is from Sizzix texture plate “ABC baby”. The scalloped design is made with fancy scissors. Everything else is from my stash.

I am seriously liking the PDCC colors!

DSC03517

Hello everyone!

I needed a quick card to give to my aunt who had a knee surgery today. I didnt want to give a conventional get well soon card, just something to let her know she is important. I thought PDCC colours would be best for her card and I found the perfect sentiment too!

Here’s my CAS card…

DSC03513c

Wow! This will be my third entry for PDCC!

I have painted the pink and purple panel. The butterfly is from by silhouette stash. It is covered with chunky white holographic glitter from Pie Lane. The orange diamond gems are also from Pie Lane. The sentiment is from TradeFish Designs. I have used two different colors of ink for the sentiment.

That’s it! Hope my attempt at CAS is OK. After making such heavily embellished cards this one seems so “naked”!

Another one for PDCC

DSC03506

Hello people! Hope you guys are rockin and kickin! It is hot here, sadly no clouds today.

I have made another card based on the color story at PDCC. (if you missed my first entry, it’s HERE). The sketch is from Papercraft Star and embossing from Simply scrapping crafts.

                                               

Here is my card:

DSC03503

The flowers are handmade; drawn very very roughly, cut, distressed to give a grungy look and rolled. The butterfly is from an original butterfly picture; scanned and printed. At first I was adding something else but I saw the “fanatical about botanical” challenge at Moxie fab so I used a real butterfly instead.

You wont be able to see but I have added lots of pearls on the white lace. Here is another view.

The pearls on the lace are placed at the centre of the circular design and in middle of the flower design.

I have ran a glitter ribbon (shades of purple) behind the purple organza ribbon. The sentiment frame is from my Silhouette stash and the sentiment is from TradeFish Designs.

I made swirls from silver glitter balls (from Pie Lane) and added a bit of faux stitching to balance the whole design.

Hope you like it. Dont forget to check out and COMMENT on my second attempt at CASE Study HERE.

P.S: Another post due tomorrow. A CAS card! Woohoo!

Another try at CASE Study

DSC03493

Arrrgh! I just can’t seem to get this CASE Study card right! This is my second try and I am still in doubt.

DSC03494

I didn’t have a leafy stamp and I wanted to use the leaves design only for this one so I decided to make my own leafy design. I used the studded leaves from my stash and Pie Lane silver glitter balls for the stem and added a boat load of pearls!

I do like the three looped bow! The flower stamp is from Schlosser Design.

This was the last of my white ink. I squeezed every last drop of it for this card LOL.

Here is another view.

DSC03487

The pictures were taken very early in the morning this is why they look so washed out. I did try to lower the Gamma settings but it was turning the silver in to grey. Anyhoo, please let me know which one is better, the card above or THIS card.

Real Flower

DSC03484Can you see the purple glitter balls? 

Hello everyone!

Hope you guys are well. I took a day’s break because my make shift desk was a mess and it still is, but I saw the CASE Study’s inspiration card and OH MY GOD it is a beautiful CAS card. I tried to make something like it but I am not pleased with the results so there is a big chance I will try to CASE it again. Soon!

My card is based of Case Study and on the colour story at PDCC.

                                         

DSC03483

I have used a real flower here and added a few purple glitter balls. The pin has purple pearls but in the picture they look more Fuchsia. Placed a few pearls at the center of the embossed flowers. I added a sentiment but it wasn’t looking nice so I had to start all over again without one.

Here is a close up of the glitter balls from Pie Lane

DSC03486 The glue turns transparent after it dries. Like so many of you, I too am an impatient person.

Hope you like it. Will try to make a better one!

hugs

Beautiful Pastels

* SCROLL DOWN TO THE END OF THE POST FOR THE FREEBIE

DSC03433

Trust me when I say that all these colours are very light pastels! The blue is same as THIS one! This wall hanging looks really pretty in person, so soft and truly beautiful! I think this one is my new favourite! It is based on the colour story at PDCC and my inspiration came from the featured card at CASE Study.

                                                         

DSC03428

I have stamped the background with Skipping Stones Pumpkin Seed with yellow marker. I used a water based marker only because I didn't want a very clear stamp design, just a very shabby, distressed background.

Thank god I had the frame, butterflies and the tiny flowers already cut up from my earlier Silhouette adventures! The daisies and leaves are punched.

Can you see the gems on the butterflies? These are self adhesive rhinestones from PIE LANE. These stones are holographic and look absolutely stunning. I have also used these on my previous card.

Hope you guys liked it, I love this one! It reminds me of summertime, babies and ice cream LOL

P.S: The wall hanging is not crooked, this was the best balancing position.

Soft Hues…

 

* SCROLL DOWN TO THE END OF THE POST FOR THE FREEBIE

** You can find the Gingerloft post HERE

DSC03453

Hello hello! Yes I have another card to show today! I have been creating for four consecutive days and this is really surprising as I am a real lazy ass. Anyhoo, the inspiration for today’s card comes from the picture at Papercraft Star.

I would have never used these colours on my own. I don’t think out of the box when it comes to colours. This card turned out great.

DSC03449

The flower is handmade, do you recognize the studded leaves? I had a light bulb moment last time I was working with these little things and this is what I came up with. Looks great right? I added a bit of silver net behind the flower.

The frame, butterfly and little flowers are from my Silhouette stash. The purple lace and orange ribbon is also from my stash.

I did a bit of hand stitching around the card to add that something extra.

The glitter balls in silver, gold and copper are from PIE LANE, I have used them as fillers here. The self adhesive holographic rhinestones in the middle of the butterfly is also from PIE LANE. Here’s a close up.

DSC03452

The background paper is a digi-freebie and has been in my stash for quite some time. Here is another view of the card. You can see the shaded purple lace more clearly in this shot.

DSC03448

Hope you like it! Don’t forget to visit my earlier posts, I have been creating and posting cards regularly since a couple of days.

Gingerloft – Make it Sparkle

 

**This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down to view and COMMENT on the previous cards.

DSC03409

Hello everyone!

It’s time again for another fun challenge at Gingerloft and this time we want to see you make something SPARKLY! Here is my sparkly creation.

DSC03406

I love this image, it’s called Delilah! Next time I will make a wall hanging out of it and frame it. I think it is fantastic and I think that someone with great colouring skills will be able to do justice to this image. I tried my best to colour it nicely.

I kept the card as simple as possible so that the eyes are drawn to the image instead of other embellishments. I have outlined the image with black glitter and coloured with regular Faber Castell colour pencils. I tried to stick to the peacock feathers colour palette (which, of course, is beautiful).

You have 2 weeks to play at Gingerloft Challenge so come on and link up your sparkly creations!

Don’t forget to check my earlier posts, I have been making cards everyday since a couple of days.

Hugs,

E

Another card based on Skipping Stones sketch

DSC03472

Hello again peepz! Hope you all are doing well. This is a hat-trick post for me, posting for three consecutive days! *touch wood* I know I wont be doing much pretty soon as our Holy month of Ramzan will start soon and it will be close to impossible for me to create while fasting.

Today’s card is also based on the sketch at Skipping Stones. It is such an easy sketch and I am sure I will be using it again and again.

DSC03473

I have used one of the sentiments from Skipping Stones Pumpkin Seed set. It is stamped directly on to a “REAL” piece of wood scraping! I have been hoarding these since a year now. I picked up a few of these wood scrapings when we were changing our window frames.

The glitter balls are from Pie Lane and the copper sequins is from my stash. See you soon with my Gingerloft card!
