Hello friends.

If you’ve been following my blog, then you already know that I have been having so much fun designing these awning cards. The possibilities with these cards are endless. You can have a store window display of ANYTHING from a library to a bakery and everything in between !!

Today my card is another Awning card, with a store window display of some purses.

Some of the elements in this friendship card include :- awning, pastel colors, diecut flower, diecut banner/tag, digital stamp sentiment, Martha stewart border punch, polka dot design paper, pastel shade tiny purses (the stool on which one of the purses is resting, is also a diecut )

Hope you like this card and appreciate it as much as the previous awning cards too.

Have you ever walked past, a cupcake/pastry store ? Well here, I have ‘tried’ to recreate the look of a store display with some cupcakes and an awning.  Trust you will like it.

This Thank you card, has several things going for it, including, bling, border punch, dry embossing, copic markers, nesstablilities diecut, a tag and the awning. The sentiment is digital stamp while the cupcakes are rubber stamped. There are two design papers, the pearl white one is embossed but its shine does not radiate in the photos 😦   The awning card does take a bit longer to work around becoz without the appropriate measurements, the awning itself, can ruin the card. But if it fits well, its a fab.

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.

HEART

About today’s card :-

This is a bright and sunny card, in one of my favorite colors with some of my favorite elements ~ Mason jars !!

I love playing with mason jars in cards, don’t you ?

Highlights of this card include :- Polka dots, digital stamp (mason jar + sentiment ), 3 mason jar, 3 fabric hearts, distressing. (None of my cards are complete without being distressed)

Allo friends ! So whatcha been up to ??!!

I am in high spirits today. Its been a constructive day ! I am super delighted that Doodle Buddies’ cards will now be hosted at Organic Foods and Café.  What makes it more special for me, is that I have complete belief in their motto and ethics. I am so glad, my art work will be displayed and appreciated at all their four supermarkets and café !!

Allah swt blesses us with just the right amount of encouragement to keep the struggle on.  On 27th January, I was featured in Gulf News’ My Guide, on Arts and Craft. It was totally an honor. I have been featured in a couple of newspapers and magazines before and have one TV interview on Chanel City7 under my belt.  But quite honestly, with every feature, comes a renewed joy and belief to keep up my creative endeavors. Two huge news – I am totally humbled.  What’s more wonderful, is that it came as a complete surprise !!

And then I had a brush with reality when I entered the studio and realized, I had been putting-off the clean up process for nearly a month.  That room, is in complete chaos and desperately seeks my attention.  So that will be on my priority list now (well, in all honesty, it has been on that list for sometime now,  just don’t remember where I misplaced that list 😉

Okey dokey ! So that’s that about my brand new news 🙂

Onto the 14cards 14days series :-  Today’s card is rather simple yet sassy.

Elements included are  :- Design/pattern paper, bow/ribbon, polka dots, banner diecut , rubber stamp, rhinestone, glossy paper for three hearts.  If your wondering, where did I pick this glossy heart paper from ~ DONT !! I picked these glossy hearts at Ikea in December, I think, they were meant to be Christmas tree decoration, but obviously, I had other ideas !! wink wink 😉

I love everything about this card – the swirls in the design paper, the pearls, the polka dot ribbon and that glittering heart !  There’s something really stunning about having a pop of red in a mixture of black and white ! The sentiment is something, I feel deeply for my husband !

No sentiment card, Something inbetween

The elegant card.

This is the third card in the card making kit series. Since I had to use the sketch, there was little scope for adding any dimension apart from what was provided. Hence it has plenty of pretty flowers and an intricate polka dotted butterfly.

I know, its very unlike me to keep a plain background but I prefered to keep a plain backdrop and fill color and design with the DP provided rather than keep a designed background and plain colored flowers and swirls.  All said and done, I think, this card is the highlight of the series.

Hope to read your thoughts on this card.
