A 'love card'!!


Want to share a card I made for Inspired By Stamping challenge. I loved the inspiration picture so much that I made the card as soon as I saw the challenge...Colours are so beautiful and I hope I did justice to them!

Also I was so much in love that I was in a mood to make a 'mushy card'! :) :)

I used lot of lavender in my card. Planning to make one with lot of blue... Hope I get some time for that...
Do blue flowers look out of place? I have that feeling... and few pearls too are out of place it seems...Hmm...What do you think?

Here is the breath taking inspiration picture..

Supplies used-
Violet CS, PP- Iti
Lavender roses- Itsy bitsy
Light blue roses, MS butterfly stamps- priya
flowers around sentiment and leaves- Ujjwal..

5 quick simple cards and my brand new watermark! :)


First of all....I want to thank Priya for making a BEAUTIFUL watermark for my pictures... You are one awesome lady Priya... Thanks so much for making time for me and coming out with the most elegant watermark ever! :D Yes....I love it that much :)

I plan to enter CAS-ual fridays and Pretty pink posh- 10 minute craft dash challenges with few of these cards...

Now for the cards, I have 5 simple and quick ones to share...

 I used Itsy Bitsy CS as base and the stamp is CAS-ual Fridays stamp... I love the colour combination... Sentiment is from Lulupu...and the beautiful inks from CC. Took 6 Min 43 sec to make this... Submitting to Pretty Pink Posh 10 min craft dash.

I don't really have enough stamps...After seeing many cards with snowflakes on, I too felt like using them...but I neither have dies nor stamps... So, I built my own snowflake (well...I call it that! :)) with CAS-ual Fridays stamp and Micia stamp set from Lulupu... I peersonally loved it... took 9 Min 47 sec for this card. Submitting this to CAS-ual Fridays challenge.

This card is more of an experiment to see how my ink pads are working! :) Used  CAS-ual Fridays stamp and Micia stamp set from Lulupu..(for sentiment) And the diecut is from thin framelit dies from Itsy Bitsy... Took 9 Min 52 sec to make this one...
 Another design! Took 4 min 10 sec for this... Used  CAS-ual Fridays stamp and Micia stamp set from Lulupu..(for sentiment)
The stamps used are from Micia stamp set bought from Lulupu... took me just 2 Min 5 sec for this one...
Submitting this to Ten minute craft dash challenge.

Which card do you like? :)

Set of cards, a small announcement and a mini give-away! :)


Wish you a very happy, healthy, peaceful and lovely year ahead... Hope all your dreams come true! (Mine too! :))

I want to share a set of 3 cards that I made recently inspired by Colleen Dietrich... She made a beautiful set of cards... Do visit her blog... She is amazing!

Here are my cards...they are more of an experiment...

 The PP is a gift wrapping paper and for those of you who are wondering 'what the hell is this one!' about the third card...I distressed it! :/ Very poor choice...Since the paper is non-porous, that's how it turned out... It's not worth trying! :)

Now for the announcement....
Well...I'm planning to sell few die cuts of the dies I possess for quite reasonable prices which I'll be posting later in the month... Also I'd be selling some handmade flowers... I'll sell only those that I'm satisfied with! :) That's all for the announcement... 

And the give-away...It's a small one... You'll be getting lots of die-cuts and hand made flowers in a variety of colours! :) You know...just to tempt you into buying more of my flowers!!! :p I know what you must be thinking... I'm not good at business dealing... :)

Will upload a picture of the give away soon...and will also let you know what you need to do to participate... 

And a small note- The first two cards are made within 10 Min each though I don't remember exact time now! The third card took over 20 mins since I tried to repair it! :)

Supplies used-
PP, pearls- Local buy (thanks to my mum...she thought I'd like it and got it for me...)
Lace- Lulupu
Sentiment- Jovi's store
CS- Itsy bitsy
