PDCC 99

Hey again....

Second post in a day....crafted to my heart's content :D Started a lot of things, not finished all of them though...So in continuation with my love for lavender and likes, I made this card for PDCC current challenge


The picture always looks interesting but this time it was challenging for me to co find co ordianting elements..
Starting with the details of the artwork...



The big yellow rose is handmade, I have put some golden leaves to compliment the flowers and the color pallette of course


The sentiment is a digital freebie...The entire arrangement is placed on a big lavender tag, there are purple bead embellishments on the corners of the tag, you can also see a white doily underneath the sentiment


The sassy strands in yellow and purple are from CTMH, the button adorning it is from Pie Lane

The PP's used are Brenda Walton and Papermania


Hope you like it !!

Lillies again - PDCC 97

Heya....

I haven't been crafting a lot lately....but managed to do a bit over the weekend....made a card for PDCC97 challenge which is to use a splash of red...



I came up with these handmade lillies again...


The black cardstock underneath the lillies is embossed..I want to do a lot of embossing but haven't really tried much...Since I did not use much of white, I thought of including more of white by using those stones around the rhombus


So with the scarcity of white on my card, I later on added a butterfly too ! And do you notice the red stone at the corner ..


Lillies always make me smlie...they look just wow on this card too !!

It goes for the following challenges too

http://365cards.blogspot.com/2011/09/day-187-past-present-and-future.html - Past - Used lillies after long, Present -favorite colour is red nowadays,Future -  it emphasizes happiness - which is integral in any event of life !


Edited to mark Anita Di's mention once again !! Well, If you are aware, I have already made a similar Lillies card inspired from Anita Di's THIS card !
Ciao !

PDCC 96

Hi Peeps...

When I saw this color palette at PDCC, it was irresistible....


Yummy colors... !! Plus I had been so keen on making a wedding theme card and with these colors I think I found a way to put both together and come up with this card below


                                                        The sentiment is a digital freebie


That's the bride, on the cardstock I have used PEACHish pearl paper, there is papermania PP, Brenda Walton PP, and the bestest Pie Lane self adhesive rhinestones.


   I have used this transparent white ribbon over which I have placed the flowers ...I love the way the flowers have turned out, these are handmade felt flowers with pearl centres. !

{HEART} Book

Hi Beautiful people...

I had not been feeling like creating much these days...but this "Heart" book is made on request of a close friend...she wanted it so quick that she told me to just cut 'heart' shapes and leave them blank...somehow I managed to make something better than that...not many though...just quiet a few...have a look

I made this the cover page


                                     The tags are matted on glitter paper and look super nice !

  This was made in such a haste, all of them were made in a jiffy though, but this turned out to be pretty good ! I tried Vintage on this one !

That's all, she loved it, of course, considering the expected blank pages..lol...!

Hugs

Explosion Box !

Hey girls...

Happy friendship's Day !! I mentioned about the explosion box in my last post, and have finally completed it over the weekend. My mom has to gift it to a boy who would be turning 'One' :)
Ready for a post loaded with pics ?

                                                                      The Box
                                                                  The Lid


                                                   This is how it explodes when open :)

                         
                                   And here is the best - the Pram..is it not so cute !! Took very long but its worth it.

                                               
                                              That's the baby just after delivery...one year back :)







                                               
                                                      Did you notice the cute baby bottle clip !

It took time to embellish too apart from all cutting and pasting, as the space was limited and yet I HAD to decorate it !

Friendship Day !

Hi Friends !

It was a craft till drop Saturday for me yesterday...slept at 4 am and was wondering how do people manage to post at that odd hour after creating for so long ! I was dead tired to even click some pics.. ! But now that I am all set and done...this is what took me so long, three friendship day cards for 3 best friends :D




I have used Brenda Walton PP, Pie lane button, handmade rose, TPC Clear stamps and CTMH thread. This card goes to my friend Swati, we met in Infosys while I was working and staying in Chandigarh !
This goes for CraftyJc Freinds Forever challenge !


I have mostly used silhouette die cuts on this one..! This card goes to my college time sweetheart Achin (she is a gal :P), we were alike in so many ways...until she got married :P . We studied and stayed in Pune for 4 years and now she is settled in Mumbai ! This is my second entry for CraftyJC Friends Forever challenge !

And now the third one.........




                                                               Inside of the card

This card is very beautiful in reality, the pic isn't good enough....I am in love with colors other than pink, for the time being :D And this card is for my School bus buddy Akanksha, she is an year elder to me but that is what friendship is about....no age/no caste/no bar ;-) We are still in touch coz we live just 15 mins apart :)

That's my third entry for Crafty JC Friends Forever Challenge !

This was not all which made me wake up till 4 in the morning, I was working on my first explosion box ! It just needs a little finishing and I'll be sharing it soon :)

To all my lovely blogger friends, I want to dedicate this poem


Upon a friend you can depend,
And this has always been the trend,
From ancient times to modern day,
A friend will always find a way.

By lending hands and being there,
A friend can show you that they care,
And friends always know what to do,
To help you out and pull you through.

So always celebrate your pals,
And whether they be guys or gals,
Just treasure them forever more,
For they're the people you adore.


Thanks for being a part of my life and helping me grow as a person, as  a crafter and discovering myself :)

Hugs
Shubhra
