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.

Friendship cards

3 tags.

I love how this card turned out ~ especiall with its rich and vibrant summery colors !  I have almost never used tags over tags so thats a first one for me. Ofcourse I have used border punch and the butterflies are also punches used with some Tim Holtz mist sprayed to add a dimension to them. It is also from the new card kit series.

Linking this card to the following card challenges :

Banner Card, Birthday Cards, Birthday cards kids, Birthday Cards Masculine

Football Fan.

Hello Everybody.

Thank you . Thank you Thank you Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on both the 3 cupcakes as well as the best bud card. Truly, it is so nice to have a circle of like minded friends who also understand issues like dental phobias and what not ! Its so nice be sourrounded in all the warmth of your comments, ladies. So please do keep shooting me those thoughtful comments 🙂

The card today is an all out and out male card. Infact, it would be more suited to a young male fella or even a kid. I know, eversince Mr Mojo has returned, he has also placed a spell over me for the color aquamarine and sky blue. Both the stamps here are digital stamps. The cutsie football player is from Nikki over at Melon Headz and the other ticket stamp is from … oops I forget !  Dear friends, many a times, if I am unable to remember whom the stamp belongs to, kindly let me know and I will be glad to give her credit for it.  The sentiment is placed in a tag, while some martha stewart border punch has lined the printed DP. I really like playing with the banner ideas. Here I have just glued on some buttons to the banner. Relatively simple card with a very clean look. Hope you guys appreciate it too. Here is the image :

I know I have a strong vote for this card, coz my 9 year old has already requested me to make a similar frame without the birthday sentiment for him ! Well, I hope you guys like it too.

Till we meet next time.

This is Naush thanking you for popping over and leaving your feedback for me.

Alter Art, Altered Doorhanger, Makeovers, Recyling, Reuse, Reduce., Trash to Treasure

Fairy Doorhanger.

This is the second creation in the Altered art series this week. Ideal for the little princess’ room.  Everything bright and cutie to make her smile and ofcourse, that fairy is just so adorable. It is a digi stamp ofcourse. I’m glad I got to use up those bits and pieces of ribbon lying around. The round punch has been used to create the circle in the cardstock.

Ribbons in shades of pinks, greens and yellows adorn the cicle.   A few sparkling brads, two sweet pink flowers and the sign of ” is sleeping” is done by ‘yours truly’.

One little girl is going to be so pleased to have her own little door hanger 🙂 How little girls fancy these room accessories while little boys are far in their own world of pirates, military, cars and what have you !!

  • Friendship cards, Inspirational card, Love messages ~ cards, Proud of You

    Proud of You 2.

    This card has only one theme in mind, to show how much you value that someone has tried or someone IS trying his best. Its really all about achievments in small or large doses or atleast getting there.

    It could be from a mom to a daughter or vice versa, again from daughter to dad, or between friends, collegues or relatives. Its not only about achievements like graduation or a job promotion but also really realizing that some one has been there supporting you and you wish to tell them just THAT ; that your proud of them 🙂

    Ofcourse I am back to my comfort zone of Pink with a large punch of red. The image as well as the sentiment are digi stamps and arent they just super cute 🙂  !! I have border punched both the outside edge and the inside too. Blue, pink and Red are predominently the colors here on this card except for what the senorita is wearing.  I have realized I have been coloring most of the girl hair images in orange. Is there something wrong with me or do I have a fetish for orange on girl heads 😉 I suppose its better that blue or even worse yellow … actually I think, I’ll try yellow in my next image 🙂

    The large die cut flower is so gorgeous. It is handmade paper and if you notice closely in the slide, you will observe how glittery this paper is.  A red button in the center and two pink and white flowers on either side. A red ribbon, and three glittery brads and voila we have a very happy girl/guy receiving this card.

    Challenges, Easel Card, Friendship cards, Love messages ~ cards, Shaped Cards

    Sweetie & Style.

    Hi there peeps ! How have you’ll been ?

    So anyways, I am back from my temporary hibernation. And what a lovely weekend so far ! So constructive and creative. Last night, I felt like a factory !! I churned out a good “FIVE” cards. Nearly four out of them are basically female themed. Lots of pinks, reds and blues … plenty of glitter and glamour too.

    The first card in this glamour series is “Your a real sweetie” Ideal for girls or guys to pop this over  to one of their friends !! I feel I have given this card a very flirty feel, with the image, sentiment and the loud dash of colors !

    Again, this is my second attempt at the easel card. And I think, I am getting the hang of it. I tried a few variations like using the border punch and letting the two large flowers on either side of the sentiment act as a back up to the actual “stopper”.

    One thing I learnt from this card is if you use thick embossed paper for any of the nesties, then you can actually get a embossed inner circle/oval shape in addition to the oval cut as well. Notice the gorgeous red oval embossed paper in close up, that texture is just awesome. Both pattern papers used in this card are handmade papers.

    Lots of glamour, glitter and color here. Hope you like it.

    This card was made purely for the sketch which is from : Clean And Simple

    Naturally the challenge demands a very simplistic and a less-cluttered looking card. I really enjoyed this lovely sketch and the idea that popped to my mind, was one, I have been wanting to try out for sometime now.  I have used purple to give the card a strong base and added this handmade patterned paper.  The stamp on the tag is handstamped with a simple message and a couple of buttons to finish off the look. In my opinion, it is a “Male” oriented card. It really was over in a jiffy once I figured out what I wanted for the focal point, which is the pattern paper.  

    The other challenges this card qualifies are :

  • Aly’s Sunday Challenge (2W) – For the guys
