Inspirational card

Joy and Journey.

Gosh I love this sketch. I could very easily place 3 different stripes or two similar and center one different strip for this sketch¬†! So many possibilities. These are the kinda sketches I love playing with. Love the sentiment. Actually I live by it ūüôā

This sketch is from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I am sorry my system is somehow unable to drop down the sketch here. So you’ll have to do with my cards for the sketch.

A new home !

This is the first time, I attempted the 3D look .. which you may understand (what I am talking about) when you see the close up pics. I really liked it and liked the soft colors used too. Although I feel I could do something better with that sentiment. I mean, it is a congratulations for the new home, but I wish I had stamped it on the card rather than the cutting. Oh well, some other time, perhaps.

Meanwhile I am entering this card for a challenge : The sketch is from  Sketch Frenzy Friday, which you can find at : http://sketchfrenzyfriday.blogspot.com/2010/12/sff121710.html

Friendship cards, Inspirational card

Always my friend.

Had a blast playing with Purple and Green. They are such a vibrant combination. Love the sound of “Always my friend” It leaves a world of feelings for the receiving end. The sketch is from Paper studio at :

Inspirational card, Something inbetween

Fairytales.

You have to have a look at the kind of fantastic stuff the women at Kortskissen have come out with. It is truly amazing. I have just tried out a very simple card only inorder to participate with them. Their work was exceptional. Really inspired by these women. Please follow the link :

The sketch is :

Although I dont understand German, I really wanted to communicate with the ladies at that end just so as to let them know my appreciatiion of their work.

My take on the sketch is :

Challenges, Friendship cards, Love messages ~ cards, Something inbetween

Special relationships.

I always feel, that the shortest and simplest sentiments convey the deepest and strongest messages. I just love the feel of ” you make my heart happy “. It is an acrylic stamp.¬† Am using this polka dot paper for the first time and am already loving it. I feel it fits rightly to a friend, good friend, closest friend, coffee morning friend, good neighbour, school friend, the relationships are endless and the list goes on. I used the digi stamp here of the two porcupines, coz not only does it relate to the young but can also appeal to ladies and guys equally.

I really am happy with the appearance of this card. Havent used any ribbons though. But the hearts are fabric.

Made my day !

Again another card where I worked from front to back deciding which colors, I wanted to overlap with the border punches. Usually I would never mix these colors, especially the textured purple with marroon. But I liked the effect and so it is. The coloring of the pooch could have been better, unfortunetly I dont own any copics, which I hear off so much ! I have seen some phenomenal copic tutuorials and It is there right on top in my wish list ! 

This card is especially dedicated to all those lovely folks who pass by my site and leave some love behind with their comments. For someone who is far away from where the “REAL” action is taking place (US,Europe,Australia), lil ol’ Dubai does not have a large ring of card makers like there and therefore, getting some appreciation from ya’ll really makes my day. Thank you all again so much.

Gorgeous Girl !

This too is a digital stamp which I completly adore. I am not too happy with the coloring I added though… it could’ave been better. Strangely enough this card was ready before an hour. !! Well that could be becoz I had colored the scarlet femme fatalle alot before !

Cupcakes & sweetness

Had never tried this orangish / blue combination and strangely I fell in love with the manner in which they compliment eachother. The cupcakes are digital stamps. The message too. Hope you like it.

little girl’s love to ICS

 

This card is a truly “girlie” card, one that goes from a female to another female. Cant see it happening any other way. But the message is very cute. With loads of love. The little girl in a pinafore holding a basket full of flowers was real fun to do. Using pink and purple together was a first time for me but It turned out good eventually .¬† The rest was simply paper piecing. Leaving this card for card challenge at : Inspirational Card Sketches.

Good wishes Card

With love to Skipping Stones Design.

I used very striking colors in this card. And for the first time, I used the lace sticker here. The background is a shade dark blue. The message “with love” is a digital stamp.¬†I will now have to search which site I got that one from !
