Want to share the calendar I made for swap at swap central India.

There are loads and loads of PPs used. If you want to know about a particular PP or any other supplies used, drop me a comment.

This is a picture heavy post....

And the cover....

black and white + blue...


Want to share a card that I made for CAS-ual Fridays. I love this week's challenge which is

Here is my take on the challenge...
 Inside the card...
Pretty simple card. Used just two stamps and a sentiment stamp..

Supplies- Black and white CS- Itsy Bitsy
Black ink pad- Priya's store
Blue ink- Crafters corner
flourish and tiny flower stamps- Lulupu
Sentiment stamp- fiskars lasting love- Jovi



There's a new challenge that went live today at IBSIC. A breath taking inspiration picture for the challenge...
I chose purple as the main colour and made this card...

It was a lot of hard work. The bicycle is a Lawn fawn stamp and it took me hell lot of time to fussy cut it... I wanted to give it a proper bicycle look. I made a little slit in the basket for the flowers. :)

The beautiful window die stole my heart. I had problems cutting the intricate die in my cuttle bug even when I used a metal shim. Any suggestions?

Do let me know how you like my card... :) Now head over to IBSIC to have a look at the wonderful inspiration from Joanna and her DT.

My creation for Charisma and IBS

Hi friends!

Want to share my creation for Charisma DT inspiration (The theme for this week is anything goes...) as well as for my GD spot at IBS.

Joanna always has some beautiful pictures and colours for inspiration. You can check the creations of the DT and add your creation to the linky tool HERE. The winner of this challenge will win a 4x4 stamp set of he choice from the store. So don't miss a chance! :)

Here's the challenge picture for you...

As soon as I saw the inspiration picture, I remembered my mother and Kaisercraft's Chanteuse paper pad!

I wish I could write more details...but I really have no time. Loads of things to do. Day after tomorrow is my husband's birthday and I haven't made anything for him yet! :(

Will update the post later...

Here is my take on the picture.

 I symbolically used veneer cuts of birds here! The birds sitting on the label are my mum and sister...the one flying is myself! Since I haven't got a transfer yet, I'm still staying with my parents even after marriage. Once I get it, I'll need to stay away from my parents....hmm...going to be very difficult..

I also kept in mind my DT creation for Charisma which also went live today. 'Anything goes' is the theme. You can create JUST ANYTHING! :) Click HERE for all the details...We have three awesome sponsors for this week. 

Entering Itsy Bitsy Pattern paper challenge
 BGC 's Shabby chic love  (hope this qualifies since I made this card for my mum...well I LOVE my mum! :))
 and to crafters corner's challenge 'expressions of love'.

I used many PPs all from the same paper pad. I just LOVE the paper pad and I bought it from Imaginations Online. I wanted to buy another one but it's out of stock already!
Flowers are bought from Maninder, Nupur and Jovi
Stamped sentiment is fiskars- jovi.
Veneer cuts of birds are from Lulupu

DT inspiration for Charisma and other cards!


Want to share few cards today... I have been crafting but not getting time to post them...

First is a card for Charisma Cardz Challenges. This week over at Charisma, the theme is to use pink and brown as the main colours on your card...

Here is my take on the challenge.

For more details about the challenge and sponsors please click HERE.
Supplies used-
Spell binders die for flowers- Crafters Corner
Doily die- PTI- Priya
Wood veneer birds- Lulupu
Lace trim- Maninder
Sentiment- Friendship garden from Fiskars- Priya
PP- Kalaalaya-random win at for the love of crafting

Next is a card I made for hubby! Just wanted to let him know that I love him and thank him for everything he does for me! If it's for my hubby, there got to be something new on my card to impress him! :) It's not a masculine card...I tried a tri shutter card... It's not perfect though... Submitting to 'for the love of crafting'. They are hosting a DT call till 9th of Feb. So, grab your chance by making a fancy fold card with love theme...

 Another angle-
What do you think? Suggestions are MOST welcome :)

The beautiful PPs are from Priya- Blae and Ivy paper pad and Family ties paper pad. So awesome...I'm so much in love with these PPs.
The heart embellishments, the pearl centres for flowersare locally bought. I love them...
Flowers are from Nupur and priya.
Adhesive pearls on the borders- Jovi.

Next card is more of an experiments with my ink pads... but i like this card too... A CAS for (CAS)E this sketch! challenge. Here is the challenge sketch-

As you can see, I smudged the PP with my yellow and green Micia ink pads.
Supplies used-
PP- imaginations online- Kaisercrafts paperpack (will post the name later...don't remember starts with 'pink' :))
Foam heart and CS- Itsy bitsy
The key and sentiment- PTI - Priya
Micia ink pads- Lulupu

The last card for today is a CAS card I made last night. I love this one... Mde this for CAS-ual Fridays. The theme is 'love letters'
My take on the challenge- The little envelope is handmade. The PP on which the sentiment(Alpha soup alphabet stamp set) is stamped is folded purposefully to make it look like it was taken out from the envelope! :) :) Pls don't question me about the dimensions of the 'letter' and how it can fit into such a tiny envelope! :)

CS- Itsy Bitsy
PP for envelope- Imaginations online
PP on which the sentiment is stamped - Priya- simple stories- summer fresh paper pack
The heart stamp is bought from priya- Fiskars- Friendship garden.

See you...SOON!
