Bunny with flowers

I am so excited right now, I am on vacation now till 3rd Jan.... yupiii... So the first thing I did was to print out some digital stamps and make some cards... Can you belive the yellow base card stock is from one office folder which I never liked and I used it here. Now I love this card using my favorite Friday MashUp sketch... :-) I have bought the new circle punch 2 days back when I opened it yesterday it was not working at all. I was so disappointed so for this card I have to cut all the circles by hand... So much work but it's worth it. I hope you love my card.

3 candles birthday

I am so excited this week. From Tuesday I am on vacation for 10 days. No work Yeeeee....And one more thing, I had a hair cut today. My husband loved it but he is making fun of me by telling me "his new wife". ;-) It's short A-line hair cut (low maintenance cut).

Instead of making lots of cards this weekend I have made very few and this is 1st one with some birthday candles.. I have a scalloped edge on the front but I think I took the picture in such a way that it's difficult to see that.

Simple little bundle of joy

One of really really good friend just had a baby. We were classmate in my bachelors(Computer Engineering) in India but we became really good friend when I was working in college as a lecturer. When I sent cards to all my family members for Diwali, I couldn't send her card as I didn't have her address and when I got, it was too late. But when I told her about that she forced me to send her Diwali card(it's been almost 2 months of Diwali) so I thought to add baby boy card too. This card was inspired by one of the card of Leann. Isn't this a wonderful clean and simple card?

One more acetate card

Once again one more card learned from Memories Live On. We stamped on cream and red polka dot paper. The same stamp was also done on Acetate and then using green copic markers I colored the butterflies on the other side of the stamp. When I saw the sample I never thought that the the butterflies are colored. I was so amazed when I knew about that. Then simply cut them, used clear glue to stick them and added some glitter on wings. The green background was using embossed folder.

Fabric flower birthday card

I wanted to make some rosette with fabric after looking at this video. I love how interesting it was. I used one of my old t-shirt which I was never gonna wear, means I recycled my item. How creative!! I even used paper torn technique too. In my last class in Memories Live On store, I learned how to my rough edge on a paper without any tool. I used regular paper scissor to make rough edges. I have used one old earring as a center of a flower. :-)

De-stressed christmas card

This Friday I went to one of the scrapbooking shop, Memories Live On, here in Bay Area for some free technique teaching class. I had a great fun making this Christmas card with de-stress, embossing techniques on acetate paper and rosette on red paper with random background made using splash stamp with funky ribbon. I love the final vintage looking card...

Dreams come true

I am so excited this week as in my office every Dec we have a craft fair. So this time I thought to participate in it will all my card creation added in this blog along with some of the cards which I made initially. It was a very successful, i sold all my cards except 3 cards. Isn't that great? I didn't earn a lot as I have kept my cards in very less amount as it was just for fun and my encouragement to make some more but it was real fun. My office is huge and the event was in cafeteria. So many of my teammates came to my table and encouraged me. Anyways so that means I have to make some more cards and here comes one card which will make someone's(may be mine) dream come true.

I have one more card with the similar theme with just a different stamp and I added some beads on this card...
