With next 3 days off at work am super excited n off to my parents home today at Hyderabad (jumping). Hnce would be MIA for the week :D
After my last post on the bright cards i continues to experiment with happy colours. Unlike me i made a set of 3 cards with similar basic design but different sentiments!
This was quite easy after one blunder of course and super fun too :) I highlighted one butterfly with MS Glitters which looks better than the pic :) Am enjoying playing with vellum since i got the vellum tape runner (available for sale with me :) ) I have glued the extra length inside the card here.
Supplies: Elle Err Fabriano, Fiskars stamps, Rhinestones by Kaisercraft
Martha Stewart iridescent glitters
And as we talk bout flutter i got a lovely butterfly award from my darling Khushboo.
Though i have written several posts bout myself she still wants me to do this again!! Brrrr.....

Phew!! That was long..... hope u guys dont get bored :)
Now here for the awards.... apart from people whom Khushboo already did pass it to :)
I also wanted to enter this for ICR challenge celebrations but i guess i used some stamping. Though is just a sentiment am not sure if it allowed to have aBg even in watermark. :( I kinda forgot about this one rule.
No worries :) So here is my card. I kinda like the way it turned out :) did you notice i distress the paper edge of the blue PP :) What say?
Supplies: DCWV Mango Frost 8 by 8 paper sack, Fiskars Wish Quote stamps,

I dont have many friends but the few i do... i treasure them! Being emotional fool (as everyone tells me i am) i cant be a jolly happy go lucky with every tom dick n harry! I don't know if you call that being choosy but yes i am!! :D I think my past experiences have taught me a bit about reading people :)
Thanks Khush... u are my fav mad woman who helps me de-stress on daily basis! :D and yes.... keep my mojo running!! And when i think of u i can just imagine a 007 fearless lady who can punch u right in the face if required!! But a true sweetheart for her friends and very very caring! Hence this card is dedicated to you my friend!! :) you are my "Miss James Bond"
Have a great day and blessed year ahead!
This card is fairly simple and clean if i may say so. I used my Echo Park Dots and Strips to create the window. Used some distress inks for the BG and yes thats vellum you see. My new experiments are now on vellum and this time i used my glue pad and some MS iridescent glitters :) I really this CTMH stamp set!
Supplies: Echo Park -Dots and Stripes, CTMH stamps, Distress inks,
MS Glitters, Butterfly - Pie Lane, Ribbon from stash
Yep its that time of the year when we shower all our love to dear brothers!!
It's the most awaited 'Rakhi'. I wanted to try something new :) Yes if you know me well you know how much i love "NEW" stuff :D So i didnt make a traditional card like the one i gave him last year. You can see it HERE.
Finally with a heavy heart i tore out my precious Echo Park papers - For the Record! They are just to pretty :) I used some faux stitching to make it look complete :)
Chalks are a great medium for highlighting on card and projects. But i created a CAS card just with chalks :) For the sentiments i used some vellum as the base and the E-Z Runner Permanent Fine Adhesive is an excellent buy if you work a lot with Vellum! Can u see the adhesive lines? :P
The card is on its way to a friend :) Sorry for the poor quality pic... its from my point ans shoot. Couldn't wait to shoot.
Supplies:Hero Arts, CTMH and stampendous Stamps, Vellum, Pebbles Chalk Set

So hows the weekend going? Well i always look forward for mine for sure!! Here's a quick post on my latest experiments using some masking technique :). I have been meaning to try this for so long. I think they look just ok. In the second card i have used vellum for the first time!! I stamped and embossed it and added some bling all around!
