Almost vintage.....

 I wanted to make a vintage card.......but didn't exactly get the desired effect, but I love it nonetheless! Since I don't have white ink I tried stamping with white acrylic paint, I liked it so much that I stamped on the inside too(which did not come out too well :( )...the tag on top is from a sweater I bought recently.
This card is inspired by Card Patterns sketch #96 and is on its way to a very special friend.....

Another first anniversary card








I've tried to do something different this time, made the entire card in the shape of a heart, took a lot of time n effort to put together mainly because all the heart shapes are hand drawn and handcut and also because I'm not comfortable with working on anything other than a square/rectangle. But I am really happy with the end result.

Well I had made a series of lovey dovey cards last month but didn't post (I'm not going to post all of them, it'll be too monotonous). This one is more like a book, it has 10 pages.....

Red n Green

I'm back after a long break, the unexpected break happened when my husband, Aridaman fell ill and had to be hospitalized, and by the time he got discharged I caught a terrible cold and fever. Aridaman is still not ok and my energy levels are also very low :( (I have a really bad attack of sinusitis which is not getting better).......anyway I did manage to do some crafting........
I made a few Christmas cards in the traditional red and green color combo......here's one of them...


This card goes out to the following challenges: 
Cooking It Up #41 - Layer Me A Red Christmas
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog - Challenge #44

Up cycled chocolate box

The moment I laid my eyes on this chocolate box (which was gifted to my brother-in-law by his office on the occasion of Diwali) I knew I wanted to up-cycle it..........I forgot to take a picture before the up-cycling (it was a plain corrugated cardboard box) as I was in a big hurry to complete the project cause today's the last day to enter Amy Duff's up-cycling challenge at Yvonne's blog.....
I've used the famous Forrest Gump quote, which I feel is so true and it makes it so much fun too!
This how the box looks with the top flap opened.......
 Have a great weekend!

Many Many Thanks

I tried heat embossing for the first time yesterday. It didn't come out too well mostly because I am an untidy stamper and I don't have a heat gun......but I did like the results enough to try again some time soon......I've embossed 3 flowers to highlight them and stamped the rest lightly, I even embossed the sentiment......

This card is inspired by Card Patterns sketch #90
Waiting for the weekend to come soooooooon..........

Hi There!


Just a simple card to share. The card is inspired by Get Sketchy GS #64. I have used my own version of Tim Holtz Idea-ology tissue tape. I took scalloped circles of different colors and 2 sizes, crumpled them separately and put them together to make the flower.
Thanks for visiting.

First Wedding Anniversary Card

 I was up till 4 am on Tuesday morning to complete this card, I always take more time than I anticipate to complete a card. Anyway I am really happy with the way it turned out. Pink and Red is not really my kind of color combo so I had a tough time putting this together......this is a 7 page card/mazebook.
Have used a lot of my favorite Itsy Bitsy chipboard alphas on the cover and the 2nd page along with some cuttlebug die-cut alphas.
Loads of heart shaped tags to write personal messages.
An anniversary poem and space to put a pic. The rose image is a printed paper napkin which I treated using Laura's and Mansi's Tips.  The dark pink rectangle is for pasting a photo, the hearts semi-circle above it is a chocolate wrapper from Yvonne.
I've used Tim Holtz alphabet masks for "love", the heart was made by stitching together two hearts and stuffing it with cotton.
Have a great weekend!
