Little baby boy

Image
Hello everyone,

This is my second post for the day. I have missed crafting a lot and I know you can guess it by the number of cards I have got. My recent arrival of prizes (of the past 6 months) from US have been calling my name. As I was going through the challenges I follow, I thought it was perfect opportunity to ink the prize from Your Next stamp - Welcome baby. And I am always short of Boy cards!

This sentiment was awesome and the font, lovely too. I coloured a pair of socks, fussy cut it, hung it over my sentiment and tadaa... Welcome the little boy!


I hope you like this clean and simple card. Thank you for stopping by :)

Yellow Daisies

Hello everyone,

I have been visiting my family and have had not crafted for a long time. But I had few new goodies to play with, so I planned to check the challenges that were live and was inspired by Michelle Wallace's gorgeous card on the Muse card club.

I changed the colours but I loved the coloured flowers and uncoloured leaves and the arrangement. I did the same and also the way her sentiment was in two different fonts. Here's my take using Hero Art's Daisy and bugs stamp and cut.



I hope you like my card. Thank you for stopping by, have a great weekend.

CFC 209 - Floral happiness

Image
Hello dear friends,
CAS-ual Fridays Challenge has a new challenge up for this fortnight and we would like to see how are you inspired by the sketch.


I used the 4 Petals Fri-dies for the flowers and did some scoring for dry embossing the diagonal lines. The sentiment is from Little birdies stamp set . I love the drama of a black card base. I used ink smooshing technique and diecut my flowers from it and used pearl halves for the centre of the flower.
Here's a close up of the card.


I hope you like my card and it encourages you to craft and create today! I look forward to seeing how you interpret the sketch. $25 will be awarded to the winner – & remember: the prize is DOUBLED if the winner’s creation features CAS-ual Friday products! Happy crafting :)

CIC - 454 - Pearls in my hair

Image
Hello everyone,
A very good morning to you. We have a new colour challenge up atCupcake inspirations . Here is this week's cupcake 




I have used 'Pearls in my hair' digi from our sponsors, A day for Daisies, for this card . I personally love to wear green sarees and I thought to use the challenge colors for this beautiful image. I extended the dress of this girl for my card. I am very pleased with this dress, may be I should buy such for myself but I'll need to get a figure like hers too!

Join us with your take on the colours Green and Brown. A Day for Daisies is generously providing a $12 gift certificate to our randomly chosen winner. 


I hope you like my card and will join us for this bi-weekly challenge.

CFC -208 Sequins' flowers

Image
Hello there,
CAS-ual Fridays Challenge has a new theme up for this fortnight and we challenge you to use your sequins.

I must admit that I can't part away from shaker cards. I made it once and realised I can't part away with it so I better not make them. It's also using those sequins, I cant put so many in one card - silly me, I know! So I had to think how I could do this challenge. I had this challenge in mind while creating my two previous cards, for this one I had made leaves (and hadn't used them) and for this card I had the sequins out. So not cleaning my craft desk - became a blessing when I saw the pearls, the leaves and sequins together, I thought they looked like a flower.
I kept everything simple - used the retiring stamps -Lovely greetings (you can get it at discounted rate till the stocks last) and embossed it in rose gold EP and tadaa.. here's my CAS Greeting card.


 I am actually very happy about how this card turned out. It's also my best friend's…

Guest Designing - Ranganjali

Image
Hello everyone,
Ranganjali has launched amazing dies for this Diwali season and it is an honour to be guest designing for them. I must admit that I have been missing dies for Indian festivals. Diwali is the time of spreading love and happiness and how wonderful it would be if the happiness were handmade. The three dies that have been released is all that you need to get your projects to the next level! Hop on to their blog to learn more about my projects and leave a comment on my post and the other Diwali die related blog posts (Sept 18) as Ranganjali is giving away all three dies as a bundle to one lucky winner. Good luck!
Card 1 
I loved the Ornamental Diya.. oh I just love it! The intricate design, the well thought out divisions in the die makes it so versatile. I made a card with it and now am planning to frame it to be given as a gift for Diwali!







Card 2
My next card is more of a clean and simple card. I think any project with the festive lantern dies wouldn’t need any paraphernali…

Wishing you all the strength

Hello everyone,
The one company that I feel is not just doing a business but also spreading smiles constantly, is  CAS-ual Fridays and I am so glad to be associated with them. The challenges at Calling all sistahs, help me create something that will bring smile to someone who needs special love and care. (I have written it because I felt a need to write this, please do not feel otherwise).
We all were shocked when we got to know that one of our very loved Indian actress, Sonali Bendre (I fell in love with her when I saw Sarfarosh, I must have been 15) has been diagnosed with metastatic cancer and I was thinking about her, when I made this. I am wishing her strength with this card. 



I was inspired by the inspiration picture at Calling all Sistahs, to do the wreath. The four petal fri-dies flowers signify the ribbons of the inspiration picture.  I have been planning to make a card but only yesterday I saw a similar floral wreath card. And though I was not CASEing the artist, this card …

Constellation Quilling - IQCG 51

Hello friends,

We have a new colour challenge up at Indian Quilling Challenges blog and I have an interesting project today to share. And I loved it so much, I would love to do all the Zodiac signs. The colours of the challenge, made me think what in nature has such colours. And I couldn't think of anything else but the night sky. So I went ahead watercolored the background (as I could use two more colours, I chose magenta and indigo) to give it a night sky look.





I recently received the amazing paper by Pretty Paper Studios UAE, called the 'Khadi paper', made in India. I was waiting for a reason to use it and the plan to make a background like this was calling it to used. And OH MY GOSH! I love it!



Coming to my design, Like my previous quilling projects, it's not heavy on quilling! I used strips of varying sizes to make the constellation. All the stars of the Taurus Zodiac donot appear very bright, so I took that as a clue to choose the colours and the size of the str…
