One of my old project


How were your weekend friends? Mine was too hectic... feeling bad that it's over.. :(
Anyways, today I just wanted to share one of my old projects when I was not blogging... I love this one a lot so it's still with me... Might be if I get its true recipient I will give it away... :)

It’s a 3 x 3 mini card set with 3 book marks...

Here are the cards,

 A closure look...

 I have used puffy stickers in 2 cards...

This one is hand drawn by me but its not my design. One fine day I was sitting idle in office and just randomly searching on the net and found this designed with the hearts hanging on the curtain rail. I really loved it. The design got imprinted in my mind and one day I drew it on the cardstock. Sorry I never noticed to whom this design originally belongs too as I never knew I will draw it one day. So if you know who is the owner please inform me so that I can give the due credit.
I drew it with a gel pen and colored it with pencil colors.

Here are the bookmarks from the set. I used pink cardstock, puffy stickers, and ribbons and did some doodling. The red checkered paper was an envelope of a card which my friend gave me about 10 years back!!! I just saved it coz I liked it a lot but I never knew I would be using it 10 years later... :)

Here is the wrapping and packing of the set.

I hope you guys liked it and if so then don't forget to comment. Your comments make my day...

Good night!

Handmade Flowers

Hi all!

I created few handmade flowers yesterday... Take a look... (big white and pink ones were made previously)

another view...

I used flower shaped die cuts I purchased on my shopping spree at itsy bitsy on my birthday... I embossed the petals with the back of a pen and used pillow as my embossing pad... ;) tucked 2 big and one small together and a glued a pearl on the top... Voila! my handmade flower is ready!

I had fun making these and tried different types too.. I made 8 of these in 1 hour... not bad huh...
How about this variation? These are my favourite...

I embossed all the petal towards inwards and glued 6 die cuts together...

and this is what I came up with... its a mid fold card... I liked this fold which I first saw at Donna's blog here. Moreover, I ran out of my brown cardstock so this fold was a cleaver selection.. hehehe :D

The image is a coloring image from the colorpages. I printed it on the cardstock and colored with water color pencils. Ir was so much fun painting Pooh...
Flowers were a RAK from my bloggy friend Jovita. Patterned paper is again a RAK from Asha. Cardstock and die cuts are purchased from Kavitha's craft studio.

Good News + pink on pink card


Sorry for not updating for the past 1 week. If you have read my previous post, I wanted to share a news with all of you. My come rain come shine card has made it to the top 3 at ICR Challenge # 5!!!!!!!! Not only this, I was also selected as a guest designer for their next challenge!!!!!!!! I am on cloud nine these days... :) :) With all the happiness flowing in I have something for all of you. keep watching my blog for a sweet surprise.

Currently, challenge 6 is going on where the theme is pink on pink with tic tac toe grid for other card elements. I selected the diagonal line of flowers, ribbon and button. You can check the details here.
Here is my take on the challenge. Its a shaped card. I do not have a die or a die cut machine to cut the below shape. So I used the readymade diecuts I purchased as stencils.

The swirls are drawn with glitter tubes.

 As usual the coordinating envelope to go with the card.

The big flower I made by sticking together layers of flower die cuts (from Itsy Bitsy) after embossing them with the back of the pen. The button at the center was a swap from Jovita.

I want to enter this card to following challenges:
ICR Challenge 6 - Pink on pink
Charisma cards challenge - All about flowers
Creative Craft Challenges - Pretty Blossoms
All Sorts Challenge - Free & Easy July
Try it on Tuesday - Flower Power

Pleaseeeeeeeeeee leave some comments about my creation. I just love reading comments.

Love n wishes,

One Crafty birthday

Hey it was my birthday yesterday and I had loads of fun and you must be wondering why I titled this post as “One crafty Birthday”?
Here is the story…
Everyone here knows that I am so obsessed with my paper craft hobby now a day’s. So, my dear ones gave a very sweet surprise to me. They took me to a place which was quite far from our place. I couldn’t recognize the roads as I have been there only once. They stopped at a place and blind folded me. Directed me to a shop like that till I stepped into it. When I was actually inside the shop they asked me to open my eyes and just imagine where I was??? I was in itsy bitsy!!! They gave me 1.5K gift voucher and asked me to start the shopping!!!
So just imagine for a craft addicted what it would feel like. And the staff there knew it’s my b’day and everyone there wished me. It was a birthday of its kind that I can never forget. I enjoyed my day to the core.
Here is what I purchased.
 A wide view...

Some blooms...
 Some bling...

Some embellishments.... feathers, brads, twine, stems, etc

Blank cards and envelopes...

and a whole lot of handmade cardstock, patterned papers, craft papers, etc

Also, I have very good news to share with you and for that I will have a dedicated post tomorrow. Because I am so much happy now days (touchwood) I have something very special for all of you. So please visit my blog tomorrow for a sweet surprise. J
Till then happy crafting!
