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)

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.

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.

Plenty o hearts to go around.

Hello friends,

This post is a continuation of my previous post where I am sharing the outcome of my new Card Kit.  I love various elements in this card, such as :- 

  • The pastel shades
  • Mixing red checks with florals.  
  • The different shapes and sizes of  diecuts for the hearts.
  • The word stickers which are just perfect for the half banner
  • EK edge shaper gave a terrific look on the red check dp.
  • Polka dots will never be out of fashion !

Guest Designer & A Card Making Kit.

May is always a busy month of the year for me  ~ two birthdays, closing in of exam dates and a need for venting my creative energies ! Strangely enough, I find that I’m always super charged creatively more than ever when I am under pressure and short of time !

This month, I am also sharing some good news with you’ll.  I am so  happy to have been chosen the Guest Designer for Pretty Paper Studio.  They are a relatively new online store who specialize in Scrapbooking kits, cardmaking kits and various other products related to paper crafting. They offer monthly sketch challenges for both Layouts and Cards.

I was delighted when the kit arrived nicely packaged with everything neatly enclosed.

Most designer’s turn to inspiration from paper, dies etc however little motivation is needed, because with one of these kits,  it’s easy to create your own handmade greeting cards with a healthy mix of their beautifully coordinated papers, embellishments, rub-on sheet, stickers, twines, and rubber stamps, which are included in these creative paper craft kits. These kits called “a little something” are for AED 225 / AED 205 for subscribers.


You’ll need to have a paper craft adhesive on hand when making your cards. Typical scrapbooking adhesives work very well for card making applications. Glue dots, glue sticks, double-sided tape, and tape runners are all good options.

The June card kit called “a little something ” was a breath of fresh air and I, all but painted the town red !!! Playing with the various elements : colors, designs and embellishments was such fun.  I was so overwhelmed, feeling that I had so many possible ideas with all these gorgeous papers and I just didn’t know which idea to start with ! I am sure, you will be smitten with the contents as well !

I have posted only 5 of the cards here which I will be posting individually in 5 different blog posts, describing the elements and details, at a later stage.
