Yet another shaker card

Hey all!!!
I think i am bitten by the shaker bug! I am here today with yet another shaker card to share. Here you go!

I created the central shaker element by die cutting two concentric circles out of 10 CS to give the height and glued them together. I cut out a piece of glitter sheet using the same method and embellished the top. 
For the shaker I added pink and silver seed beads along with some brown sequins and sealed it using a clear pocket. 

The base of the card is simply put together using a piece of pattern paper along with the shaker. 

I love making flowers and these two flowers are handmade. I colored them using Distress inks and crunched them up a bit to break the fibres in the paper and give a shabby look. Finished the card with a gold glitter border and a simple sentiment "With Love"

Here is a close up of the shaker card!

Here is my previous attempt at a shaker card.

A girly girl shaker card

Hi all,

I am really excited to share my new found love of shaker cards! It didn't turn out very neat and clean but since it is kind a mixture of different media i think it turned out okay!!

Here it is.

I cut out some rectangular frames and used foam tapes to build the height. I have used clear packaging plastic for the see-though area and added brown sequins inside the shaker and sealed it. Too add an oomph factor to the frame I added tiny roses all over it. Before doing this, I prepped the base card with some plastic tapes, (These are not washis!!), a stamped image and sentiment that are partially visible. There is a birthday wishes stamp beneath the frame (only wishes is visible though ) So i added a sticker that says birthday!!

Many Thanks!!

Hi Blogger Pals!

I am here to share a card which I made for someone who has been my helping hand at work the last two months! It takes great effort to go out of the way and help someone, when you could've done with some help yourself!!

Thank you so so much ! You know who you are !

Onto the card, NO STENCILS here!!!! I DIYed a method to use washi tapes in a cross stiched pattern and daubed all sorts of DIs and chalk inks into it. It took me 4 rearrangements of washi tapes to get all the squares done. Once te colorful checkerboard was complete, I trimmed the edges and mounted it onto a black CS and onto the base card using foam tapes.
The process - repeat 4 times to complete all squares

For the sentiment, I didn't have a thank you that was bold and strong. So I used the Peek-a-boo Designs, scripty alphas stampset to build my own sentiment. I think 'many thanks' aptly delivers what i wanted to say via the card. I then rounded off the corners using a corner chomper and mounted into onto another mat and added it to the colorful base using foam tapes. Finally I added a few black beads for added interest.

Here are a couple more shots!

The sentiment...

Let me know what you guys think about this.

Handmade First Birthday Invites

Hi all,
I can't believe it has been a year since I was blessed with a baby boy. Never knew that a year can run so far but at the same time each and every moment was cherished to the core. My little bundle has kept me extremely busy but I somehow managed to find time to craft a little bit amidst mommy duties and work.

I planned to create all the birthday invites by hand , but making 100 so with limited supplies, stamping, die cutting, and NO MISTI or similar tool seemed a daunting task.

I planned the outer layer to be handmade and designed the details sections and printed out on 3.5X5.5 size 160 gsm paper.
FOr the outer, I chose two color tones, Yellow and Blue.
The background is colored using distress inks and I stamped the tree branches, mobile, baby bottle and Little WOnder sentiment from Peek-a-boo Designs stampsets. I have colored then using plain old sketch pens that you get for 20/- a set.

FOr te focal image, I deliberated for a long time, I didn't know what to choose. FInally I went with Jane's Doodles stampset adn took the bundled baby image.
I stamped the image around 100 times in various sheets and colored them using watercolors in different colors. Hey , it is goog to have variety :)

I cut them out using a circle die and cut out a scalloped circle in a different color using a co-ordinating bigger size so that I can layer them together to make the focal point.

I connected allt he elements to the tree as if they were hanging from the branches and this completed my card.

Here are a few more pictures.!

A subtle Waterfall Folio

Hi Blogger pals!
It has been a really really long time since I crafted to heart's content!

I created this waterfall folio after having a disastrous first attempt . This folio measures 7X4 when closed.
There are 6 flaps which are 4X4 and you can use both the front and back as photo mats.

I have attached a tag on the left pocket for some greetings and the pocket can hold other goodies too.

For the outer cover I did not embellish it as I am sending this out to be used as per needs by the client.
I love belly bands and using them as a closure gives me additional space to embellish.
I have added a trio of roses in two color tones to the band to finish this project.

Here are some more pics. So what do you think guys!
