Easel Card Again !

Hi friends

Good Morning. Its gonna be a quick post again. We ll be leaving to chennai for the weekend so giving a go in some challenges.

As u can see, for the rossette centre i have used a bottle cap. And for the Bingo challenge, I have chosen the last column (Acetate, paper clip & Wood)
    Wood - Flower button in the bottle cap
    Paper clip - near sentiment
    Acetate - I have used it as a stopper for the easel, isnt it cool?
I have used brads to hold the acetate, sentiment pp and the base together.

Happy Weekend people

Explosion Box - Vintage Hues

Hi people....

Back again with an explosion box with 'wedding anniversary' theme. Started it in vintage colours, n i guess ther is atleast some justice done here. My first try @ anything vintage, learned a lot in this process (n the first thing was, invest in some craft goods).

The outer view

Added a rossette to the top, look @ the button, love it. i have distressed all the papers with vintage photo.

The Rossette top

I have added a Gift box in the centre with a rose on top. Also added a photo to the lid flap, it can be seen wen the lid is opened (the next photo)

Open Box

Gift Box in the centre

Shown below are some of the panels in box, embellished it in vintagey colours as far as i could.

Some of the panels

Latte Love

Hi guys....

Back again with a card for BGC, hope u like it

The image is hand drawn and coloured with Faber Castell Bicolour pencils, kept the shading on the cup to a minimum so that the cup adapts the texture on the card. For the aroma, i have pierced it with a needle. Took the sentiment from Jovi's card, and i have added faux stitching around the card.

Do give me ur comments on my colouring, how can i improve it further.
Thanks dear friends for ur encouragement always, ur thoughts do mean a lot to me...

Signing off now, but ll be back soon, have lots stacked up for sharing, jus not getting the time
Happy sunday!

These are the items u see here, a gift bag, favour box, a cake centre piece and the bday invite....

I took the basic layout for the invite from a design i saw on the net and altered it according to requirements. The Hello Kitty head is a print out n i fussy cut it.

This i made for the children attending the party as a return gift bag, simple n with the theme colours

This lil cutie here i made it for all her classmates @ school. It is a small favor box which can hold jus a couple of small gifts n sweets. Here is the whole range i made...

I know u people wud hav guessed, this model is Deepti's creation. Dint i tell u i made a blunder in CASEing her project instead of a card for the challenge?? This is wat i CASEd, then realising the blunder i made, i did a card then. I was kept as a table centre piece. Isnt is lovely??

Do tell me ur views on this party ensemble...... hav a good day

A mini book.....

Hello there everyone....

Here is a mini book i made on request for a lil girl. Her granny was in awe of the Cup Cake Card and wanted something like that for the lil kid, so i made a mini memory book, incorporating the things a lil girl wud love.

For the front cover base i used a gold net cloth to give some texture. Added loads of ribbon.... "Our lil Princess: is cut from a PP.

Forgot to take a pic here, the red ribbon opens up to an accordion fold card. 

Here again the ribbon opens to a multi fold card. All the papers are from DCWV girlhood stack, oh i love that stack. All yummy papers. The book rings are from Itsy Bitsy

Here i'd like to mention that i have taken inspiration from soo many mini albums by crafters from around the world. Thanks everyone.
Hope u liked it, do give me ur suggestions.

Hi again....

Did a blunder, dint properly notice that we had to CASE a card, i was inspired by Deepti's 3 tier cake box and did a similar one for my lil girls' bday.
Anyway here again with a CASEd version of her CARD.

Here is Deepti's card, she has used water misting technique.

Here is my take on it, i have used water misting on distressed card. The sketch is from CAS(E) this Sketch. 

Am gonna update this description later, running out of time.
