Handmade Greeting Cards in Dubai ~ 10

Hello friends ! I am continuing the 14 days 14 cards series. This being my 10th card.

valentines cards in Dubai

This is an awning card for a boutique/window display.

Elements/techniques in this card include :- Dry embossing, rubber stamping: flowers, border punches, design paper, pink brads, die cut oval, sentiment: digital stamp. Each one of those vases are paper pieced individually and distressed, copic markers on flowers. The awning itself, was a lot of effort. Had to cut stripes of pink and add to the white portion to give it an awning-like appearance. Plenty of layers involved here. Perhaps, becoz I tried this technique for the first time, I took a long time to design and dress it up.   I just love how it turned out !

Handmade greeting cards in Dubai 8

Hello friends ! I’m back with my 8th card today.

valentines cards in Dubai

I must confess, for someone who is accustomed to posting and linking one project a week, 14 projects in 14 days is really a Challenge for me !! Designing a card is such a fun and elevating experience for me, however the post production process is rather time consuming ! ( photography, editing, posting, linking )

In Dubai, we are blessed with a daily dose of fresh and radiant sunshine even in the make-belief winters !  The sun never seems to disappear in the day time and hence, virtually no flash assistance is required in any photography for outdoor shootings.

About today’s card :-

valentines cards in Dubai

Hello friends. This is the second card in a series of 14.

Over the years, I feel, I (like most of you out there)  have evolved as a crafter. We all develop our own skills and feel comfortable with a particular style.

I like CAS (Clean and simple) but with more embellishments rather than layers and layers of paper. I love using ribbons and love to add metallic features. With some cards it gels well, sadly, with some, it just does not. Luckily this card turned out just how I wanted it to look.  I hope you like it too.

Teddy Love ~ Wall hanging.

Hello Ladies. And how have we been today? Well, I think by now, most regions of the world have gotten a glimpse of spring already, isnt it ? Well, going by how and whats going on with the world climate these days, just enjoy the Spring as best. Picnics, bbqs and lots of outdoorish stuff. In this part of the world, we are dreading summer which is already knocking on our doors.

Anyways, enough of the weather report !! So gladly, this will be the last project of the Trash to Wall hanging series for this month. This little wall hanging was made with a distressed young friend in mind.  Very simple message about sharing some affection and assurance to someone. The little lad with the teddy is a digi stamp, while there is a fabric teddy also, paper pieced next to the swing. 3 pretty green flowers with 3 brads, and 3 polka dotted ribbons embellish the project. The base is pale pink DP, embossed with tiny flowers. The sentiment is also digi stamp.

    Baby Arrivals, Challenges

    New Born ~ Congratulations.

    This stamp is curtesy : Bugaboo stamps ~ http://www.bugaboostamps.com/pg_cupie_baby.html

    I am using this stamp is for the first time and I do hope I have done justice to his coloring which I did not want to use too many on this little bunny !What can I say, they have such cutie stamps and some so hilariously cute ones. I have used pink lazer lace sticker here. Some very cute buttons and some super cute embellishments of bibs, umbrellas and baby bottles too. I wanted to keep the card universal in nature as in, it could be given on the birth of a girl or boy. The pink flower in the center is embossed paper, and the “congratulations’ is the only stamped image there is. I really had fun creating this card, in green, pink and blue !! Very unusual for me but nevertheless, I feel it looks cute !

    Right until valentines, I am going to try and create more cards, tags, altered art  on love, baby arrivals, get well soon and congratulations. It is a deliberate effort becoz I realized these are the cards, I miss out most on.

    Love Message 4~ with all my heart.

    One Card ~ 4 challenges !! wow. thats a first for me 🙂

    ‘I love you with all my heart’ is a free digi stamp. I know I should start owing up to the digi making blogs owners that really help the likes of me, with all their goody freebies. So from today, I am going to try and find those lovely invisible friends who have so generously donated their digi stamps to us.  I’d really like for them to know how grateful I am for their gorgeous images and fantastic talent. Perhaps I will make a seperate post to name some of their sites once I have located them.

    This card is entering 4 card challenges:

    1)  http://ccmonthlychallenge.blogspot.com/2011/01/challenge-8.html

    2) http://fridaymashup.blogspot.com/2010/12/mashup-25-sweet-on-hearts.html  ~~ valentine theme with hearts and red/pink/blue/yellow colors.

    3) http://sketchandstashchallenge.blogspot.com/2011/01/sketch-n-stash-challenge-52.html ~~ newest/neglected elements/paper.

    Playing with Polka dots is fun but can be challenging especially if its red, which in many cases, it is generally. I have used two cute glittery hearts which I have had for long but used it twice today!  a satin checkered ribbon which has been lying around my stash like forever , and an embossed green base for the sentiment oval. All in all, did not want to experiment much becoz I wished the focus to remain on the sentiment and beside which the polka dots are very dominating in the entire card. So Voila !
