Gossip card

I was looking at one of the free digi I had and wanted to make a card which is general and can be given to any lady on her birthday or even just for Hi. I can't imagine how many things I have added in this card link coloring the image, paper layering, I even used pink ribbon with hand stitching with pink bottom on top. I have also added some funny sentiments inside which I simply printed.

Birthday girl

One of my good friend in San Diego's birthday is coming and she is girlie girl so I thought to make something from pink with my stamp from My Favorite Things. I love stamps which has some cupcakes, coffee etc so I grabbed this from Memories Love On store on this Wednesday when they accept Micheal's 40% off coupon when my final purchase amount is more than 10$. I used the paper piecing for her clothes and blueberry cupcake. In my last Make and Take in the same store I learned to also stamp the same image inside of the card to tie it more with the card. I hope you love my girlie girl birthday card.

Inside of the card, once again blogger is not aligning my inside card properly but I think it's quite visible.

Home tweet home

I have decided now to make some cards which can be used anytime and don't need to create last minute. Just like this new house/home card on gate-fold. I have a special love towards birds and flowers when I am making cards and then I found this image on Doodle Pantry which has 2 things which I wanted to do, make a new home/house card and birds...

Flower pot birthday card

I have never made a card with the oval share as I don't have any tools to cut the oval shape and a template. And of course I didn't want to create a oval shape with any engineering way. :-) So over the weekday I simply created a word doc with 4-5 different oval shapes and I got my cheapest(actually free) template which I have used in this flower pot card. I used some glitter in the middle and used a ticket for birthday greeting. I have used the lace trim smartly by cutting the trim in middle and stick it on both the side of paper. I am trying for GT call for Fairy tale challenge.

I made this cards watching Modern Marvels on History channel. The episode was on packaging, it also covered water bottle packaging. Can you believe, shaping the water bottle requires proper designing and the one I saw was inspired by Capsicum? As the vacuum in the bottle changes the shape of it, the bottom of bottle is not flat but concave(just like capsicum). :-)

Anyways my card is,

The bride and the groom Congratulation card

One of my best friends(Pooja and Abhbishek) just got married and we couldn't attend their wedding as it was in India and we didn't do our India trip this time. We were housemates when I was doing my Master's. We had a great time together studying, doing assignments, taking, sharing, cooking etc. together. I am really happy for their new beginning. Now I am planning to invite them to my house next weekend for lunch or dinner to give them their wedding gift. As I am planning for a gift, I thought to make a card with the gift card pocket inside. This one is my first attempt on wedding card and I love the out come. Now I have to make 3-4 more as all my good friends decoded to get married in Dec of 2010. :-) My inspiration for this card is here.

Celebrate with a flower

I am really celebrating my first guest designer on Paper Works Co. I love that blog and their images and challenges. I used my beloved technique layering and paper cutting for my flower and leaves. I hand-stitched the stem on metallic paper and used a ribbon(which was on one gift I got) to tie the whole card together.

Fairy Birthday

Once again another project with digital image on Z-fold. This time I used one fairy image, I colored it with my favorite purple color with silver wings. I am not sure you are able to see the silver sparkly wings but I colored it with silver pen. Sentiment is also a digital image and just to coordinate it with the entire card I colored the sentiment too.

Sending U Love

This days I have found my new love(of course after my husband ;-) )... Digital stamps... I think I started using digital stamps 1-2 weeks back but I love to use them as they are quite handy and just print the image you like, color it and you are almost done... Even I create my own sentiments too... It's surely the most economical way of card making. With my new love(technique), I am sharing a new card for DT call for Prairie Fairy Designs with the cute bunny image. I have also used my new Martha Stewart butterfly punch for the first time which I bought over the Christmas(to New year) break. I hope you love my creation.
