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

    Friendship cards, Inspirational card, Love messages ~ cards, Mother, Proud of You, Teacher Cards

    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.

    Challenges, Get Well soon ~ Card

    Get well soon with flowers.

    The sketch is so simple yet you can actually put in an entire drama stage with the only two images there. Its really very versatile.

    I decided to use the image of ‘get well soon’ with a very pastel pink and purple. I meant to use some cheerful colored flowers and a few shimmering butterflies, but then the flowerpot idea just sprung up and voila !
