Come Fly With Me: Bird

I love working with birds and bird cages, and so I delightfully share with you my entry for Challenge #110 Come Fly With Me being hosted at Crafty Cardmakers and More.

Its a simple card in shades of white and lilac. The flowers are hand made; stamped and inked in dark and light tones of lilac. The bird and vine are chipboard, lightly inked, while the based is dry embossed. Sprinkled some white beads for finishing touches.

Happy Crafting!

Ripped Jeans: Male Themed Creation

Presenting to you my entry for challenge number 109: This is a Man's World, being hosted by Crafty Card Makers and More.
I wanted to make this card a little different from all the masculine cards I've seen so far. Since this was meant to be a male themed creation, I wanted it to have a rugged, rough, yet youthful look and feel. And so took my inspiration from the below "Ripped Jeans" image found online:

This is what I put together:

Worked with kraft card and blue cardstock. The blue base was first inked to appear as denim and then ripped to create the ripped jeans effect and inked further. Below is a close up, showing all the details =D [very happy with the effect]
The sentiment is embossed; black and copper.
The inside is simple.
And as you can see capturing the colors was a task in itself. =)
Happy crafting!

Red, White and Pink: Heart

Its a beautiful Monday morning here! (and just after typing that I had to pause-- so its a beautiful afternoon now =D) Received Country View Crafts gift voucher today, for winning the January challenge, yay! Challenge entry can be found here.

Coming back to the post; This red, white and pink themed card with a large textured heart was made for submission to Challenge no 58 being hosted at Lia Stampz, and the Have A Heart Wednesday Challenge being hosted at Simon Says.

The heart is hand drawn and colored. I wanted to add texture to it and did so by embossing it heavily. Here is an another picture where the texture is clearly visible.

That is about it. Love the heart :)

Happy crafting!

Mini: Chalkboard

Here is a mini expressing my love for chalkboard! =D
The mini is 4x4 with lots of flowers, mats, pockets and chalkboard accents.
I used purple, yellow and blue for flowers, and white for the leaves.

These two pages are my favorite! The inspiration came from clipart borders. Here though its all stamping.

 Happy crafting! =)
