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 :-

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)

Handmade greeting cards in Dubai 2

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.

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.

Clean and Simple, Friendship cards

Fabulous Friend.

My last post was about the preparation involved in setting up a craft exhibition at home. Well, I’ve got 3 days more to go and I have still not even scratched off 3 things out of the 15 tasks in my list 😦   OKAY, so I’m exaggerating !! But still, I am struggling with packaging of the embellishments which is such a tedious task, seems its taken F O R E V E R inspite of having help from the boys. So like I said in my previous post, plan much in advance. Few things have materialized like the advertising, posters, mailing friends and collegues etc.

I am hoping to be able to pick the spray paint for the racks and the hooks also for the racks today. I have 3 projects on my work station, 2 wall hangings and 1 small banner. They will have to take a back seat at the moment.

The project today is a card for the “CLEAR IT OUT” card challenge blog which is hosting the theme of CAS ~ clear and simple. I have come up with an extraordinarily simple card. Strangely its really difficult for me to play with the theme of CAS. I have to resist the temptation of adding elements, embellishments or stamping more than once.

I dont know about you guys but keeping it clean and simple also means that one has to know just which paper to play with and how to keep the focus to a bare minimum which is really difficult, if you ask me.  Although I have done such cards in the past, I somehow never felt comfortable enough to post them. Lets see what response this fabulous friend gets !

Here it is :

With all thats happening right now, I am not going to link this card with alot of challenges.

Here are the very few :

Thank you for visiting me today. Have a lovely week.

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.

World’s Best Bud.

What a day !!! Actually a nightmarish day. For someone who is petrified of dentist, the sight, sound and smell of a dentist’s clinic is nothing short of turning me hypertensive ! And to think of it that finally after suffering for over a year with repeated infections in my wisdom tooth, I finally gave in to my doc, to have it removed !! Not in my wildest dreams did I know that It would turn out all so painful. Well the procedure was not so bad ~ what with two bouts of anesthesia and my tooth breaking in pieces half way thru !!  But for whatever reason, 2 hours later, when the anesthesia was all drained is when the real pain dawned. And ho boy ! Did I wail and cry like a baby !!! For someone who has undergone 3 caesarians and battled alot of physical pain, tooth ache may seem small but honestly, It causes excruciating pain. And this is the point when your wondering, what has tooth ache gotta do with the world’s best bud !!!!! Well actually, nothing. Hey c’mon now, I just gave up my wisdom, I am bound to talk this way now 🙂  Jokes apart. With a stronger dose of painkillers, I am much better now. Please feel free to share with me, your tooth removal experiences. Why ? Well, it may make me feel better that I am not the only one who cries like a big baby over tooth ache !!

Ok anyway lets get on with the business of card making.

This is a relatively simple card. Super gorgeous flowery design paper. A cutsie old beetle car digi stamp image from Nikki and a simple message ~ which is what boys generally like. The ribbon is wrapped backwards with a simple button. While the front layer is embossed and attached with 3 blue brads. Somehow, inspite of the huge range of spellbinders in the market, somehow I am finding myself more attracted to the simple circular diecut, which I have layered here. The base of the circle die is a soft handmade blue paper with gold dots embossed on it. I would say this is a typically guy card. Subtle tones, check ribbon and button, and a short and crisp message that generally stands good for boys.

Back fold card, Good Luck Cards, Good wishes Card

Lilac wishes.

This card is my first attempt at the backfold card. I really had fun working and letting my creativity play havoc with paper. The lace ribbon with that tiny line of gold is the first of its kind that I am using and if you notice closely, it has exactly the colors of the pattern paper. Three sparkling butterflies, 3 glittering green brads, a tag with a plaid ribbon, for leaving your personal message and a block with a simple sentiment digi stamp which could be given for a birthday, moving jobs, promotion, etc. The flower pot is also a digi stamp sitting on 3 scallop ovals.  This card was all about fun fun and more fun. It is such a super cool and easy project.

Oh and BTW, I saw Grown Ups today. Nothing like an adam sandler movie to cheer you up 🙂  I wonder if any of you’ll have seen  Zohan ? Also an Adam sandler movie. One thing I could identify with in Grown Ups was how our newer generation of kids have been so tube-oholic !! DH wonders why his boys are not out in the playground instead prefer to remain in their study room, no not studying, but glued to their computer screens, playing their boyish games or its the playstation or its some cartoons !! But its almost never being outdoors !  What can I say, I take half the blame here, Have not been a great role model, what can I expect from these poor ones ; I too am tapping the keys of my laptop most hours of the day 😦   Its not like they never cycle or go out to the park, but its just not how it used to be in hubby’s childhood. I’m sure we’re all wrong somewhere here. Anyway, just a thought .. any thoughts at your end ?

Ok, here’s the card :

  • 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.

    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

    www.doodlebuddies.wordpress.com

    This slideshow requires JavaScript.

    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
  • Corrosive Challenges  (2E) – Button it up
  • Crafty Pad (SIO) – Something for the boys

  • Stamptacular Sunday (must stamp) – Whateva’!
  • Totally Gorjuss – As you like it
  • Crafty Emma – Bold & Bright
  • Alphabet Challenge – (1E) – “M” is for men
  • Tellen’s Place – (1E, SIO) – make it for the guys
  • AiFactory – (1E, SIO) – for the boys
  • Sassy Studio Designs – (SIO) – 3 embellishments, 2 patterned papers, 1 ribbon (would buttons qualify as embellishments here ?)

    No One Like You.

    When I began with the concept of this card, it was really supposed to be something for a friend, perhaps could be used for valentines or just a special reminder to a good friend, neighbour, classmate … but turns out, it could also stand for a mother/daughter card too.

    The elephant image is digital stamp and Ohhhh I just love those two cuties, arent they adorable ??  Ofcourse the pattern papers are from my new “guilt trip” buys. There’s some lace sticker, a cutie tag and a few fabric flowers with buttons over them. Doesnt green and pink, just appeal to the eye ? I found them so attractive but not ideal for the male cards. I made a deliberate effort at placing a black and white ribbon dividing the background papers. Just wanted to experiment the look ! 

    This card enters several challenges which I have mentioned just after the picture slideshow.
