Memories from the Camera roll

Image
Hello there,
A very warm welcome to my crafty space where I am sharing a memory with you. Remember those days when we had camera rolls and pictures, atleast we would have them in an album to flip through. The digital age, makes memories but no time to revisit them easily. Unless you get the prints out. Do you also remember how as kids we would be excited when the camera was out, for special occasions mostly, birthdays, cousins visiting, picnics, outings? I tried to recreate those years, with the kids-all happy and the pets- all jumpy!
The fabulous die cut was gifted by my very talented card making friend Deepti Aggarwal and I knew I must do something that makes us all nostalgic.
Bright smiles on the kids, brightened every one's day, even while flipping the albums.



 I adore these kids, they remind me of me, my brother and our cousins. I tried to create a different background on each of the frame, and then the kids on the foreground. To fit them in the frame I had to chop off some …

CFC 206 - Starry celebrations

Image
Hello everyone,

There is a new challenge up at CAS-ual Fridays and this time it is a photo inspiration.


I was inspired by the colours and the white fonts. I have lately fallen in love with black card stock and the photo inspiration was just the right reason to get the black CS out. I have no idea if this technique has a name, but I thought it will look great with a lot of texture and dimension on the front panel. If you know what it's called please let me know - sticking die cuts on the panel.



I have used Stars Fri-dies for the stars. I cut them in two different ways, one as a whole star in black and the other by stacking two together to get the star with colourful borders. For the sentiment I used Celebrate- stamp on vellum and tadaa... my card is done!

Looking forward to see, how are you inspired by the photo. For more inspiration from the DT, hop on to the challenge post, here.

Hello there,

I am glad you visited my crafty corner. I must admit I don't make many masculine cards, but this time I had to, to thank a friend who got me goodies from his visit to the US. I also had the right inspiration from the blog land and challenges to play at.

I used the Create a smile stamps - Superpower's, super mouse that my friend Deepti sent. Along with Clearly besotted's - Cityscape and a sentiment from Paper smooches' - Uplifters set. I used a die cut circle for the leaving white for my moon and blended in my sky with my limited disterss inks to create the night sky. Some drops of acrylic paint and a couple of stars with a white gel pen.. and tadaa.. here's my super awesome hero mouse.. to save the world!



I hope you like my card.

Sprinkles on my Doughnut

Image
Hi there,

I am so lucky to have friends who think of me when they visit a craft store. A friend who came back from a visit to the US got me this utterly cute stamp from Jillibean soup- Coffee and donut. I received it two days back and I couldn't wait to ink it up as there are also few challenges I could play along with.

So the photo inspiration at Inkspirational  and the Food and drink at Times out, screamed Doughnuts/ Donuts to me and I made my One Layer card. Also, I must admit that my three year son had his first doughnut last weekend, so I couldn't have thought of anything else. And he is the Sprinkles to my doughnuts.


I have a cute picture of - when I caught my son eating a doughnut under a cushion, because I had said - No, it is dinner time!

I am sorry, I know you like the word donut. But, I have learnt it was dough-nut, at school and I feel I am misspelling if I wrote, donut. I hope you will not mind, English isn't my mother tongue. Joining in with my delicious do…

CIC #451 - Just a note

Hello dear friends,

I have a reminder card for you today to join in our Back to school - theme challenge at Cupcake Inspirations. This fortnight, Newton's Nook Designs is our kind sponsor and a randomly drawn winner would get $25 gift certificate to their store. Isn't it cool? Join us with your Back to school projects, only 4 days left to link - up.

So Last week, when I made a card (here) for this theme, I was thinking I can't make a back to school card the stamps of Newton I have can't be made  into a card. Then, fellow designer, Charlotte's card inspired me to try something different. So here's my card.



I used the Newton loves cake stamp and cut out the N
ewton behind the slice of cake for my card. The layout of the card is inspired by sketch at CASE this sketch.. I turned the sketch upside down for it. I made my own page with a punch, for the holes and Sizzix dotted rectangle framelits, munched the corners and drew lines with a green pen. The star is by CAS…

Best Fishes

Hello there,

I am glad you stopped by. My dear friend Deepti Aggarwal of Vishesh Collections sent me a lot of goodies, along with a lovely card. I used one of the sets she sent me, Fintastic Birthday from Itsy bitsy for this card and Sunburst stencil by Crafty Scrappers.

I had seen this wonderful under water scenes being created by so many crafters I follow on IG, like Francine Vuilleme, Paru Mahtani  and so many more. These ladies' cards are stuck in my head. But I had no fish stamp, other than a seahorse. So, now that I had this wonderful gift, I had to do an underwater scene.

A CAS card.. ofcourse!


Do you know many whales don't have teeth, they have baleen and eat planktons. The biggest or the big sized whales usually have beleen and the famous whales which have teeth are, Narwhal, Sperm whale. Killer whales or Orcas, are not from the whale family, they are dolphins.
Hope you like my card and the trivia. I searched all of it because I was curious about which whale is the o…
