Finally A Happy card

Hi friends,

Back with another card,just completed making it. I saw this tutorial of ribbon border here and wanted to try it from long time .Finally done one card  which turned out to be much better than i expected. I never thought that i would use black in my cards(sentiment) but this combination of maroon and black really works well. 
Coming to the card i made the knots with maroon colour satin ribbon. I first had problem in selecting the sentiment and finally thought something related to love will be good with these colours. I dont have any love sentiment expect the letters so settled with Thinking of you. I dont have a black cardstock so used a marron colour base with embossed black thick card.  I made a border with crimped black paper which my son helped me in crimping (he saw that on my desk and was playing and thats how i got the idea ;) ) used some rhinestones.  Roses are handmade and stamped the butterfly on maroon colored cardstock, used black gel pen to highlight the dots on the butterfly which i dont think is visible here in the photo. Then finally the heart shape is done with white gel pen.

Distressed background

Hi all,

I saw this video of wrinkling and distressing the background in youtube and tried on this card. I used doily with ribbon in the middle. I ironed from back of the card to make it flat while sticking to the base of the card. stamped directly on the doily. I should try this background technique more,not that satisfied with this card. Hope you like it.

My first Quilled Ear rings.

Hi friends,

Made my first quilled ear rings for entering shylaa's challenge at adhiraa creations.  As soon as i saw the challenge,i remembered my broken ear rings.  I thought i will give a try with those as i don't have any idea of what to get and how to do it. The hanging part was a pearl but it was broken so added quilled hanging with a pearl in it. I should have tried with brighter colors, better luck next time.
 Here i have used purple and white combination.

Quilling on canvas


Hi all

A simple quilled border on a canvas using Glitter alpha stickers. I wanted to try a quilled butterfly from long time and so did it for this frame. It took 5hrs for me to quill this butterfly . I took the printout of the shape and used my pins to quill around it and insert coils in the middle. I hope to do more in the future.I distressed the edges of the canvas and used doily for the center. Doesn't want to add many leaves,so kept it simple with addition of pearls to the centers.Hope you like it.

Handmade Photoframe

Made a photoframe after seeing tutorials by Dr.Sonia and Neha. Used few diamond mirrors i was having. First time tried a dimensional flower. Used acetate  in the front for the frame. Laces for the border of the frame,one is punched and other a decorative butterfly tape. Bottom side of the frame is stuck with foam sheet as there was a piece of cardboard i kept it while sticking the back side of the frame. I thought of putting a flag type of sentiment but later dropped it. Thought i will just leave it plain with these sheets. Edges of the frame has washi tape, used few monarch butterflies.

Quilled heart

Hi friends,

Made a card using a sketch from Freshly made sketches. Its really difficult to compete with lot of beautiful entries every time i see in this challenge, but still want to give it a try with my quilling. This time i Quilled a heart using beehive technique with a glitter alpha as a sentiment. Used the alphas sent by itsybitsy. Used washi tape around the heart and the pink polka dots one is also the washi tape.  My card says Love you,is that right,yesterday i had a doubt whether the single heart means love.  Still continued doing it and here is the result. 
Hope you like my idea.

Acetate card

Hi all

Made a card with acetate for the first time. I had found a  cream coloured cardstock which was by mistake put on top of wet wipes box. I stored those wipes for cleaning after stamping. So I didn't notice when putting  the cards and pattern papers. So they were all wet. I felt bad for sometime and then got the idea of cutting the front portion of the card and putting the acetate in the middle. One lucky thing is top and bottom portion of card was not soaked. I had cut the cardstock till where i found the water marks and replaced it with acetate. Covered the backside of the card with pieces of cream cardstock. I remember watching this tutorial in youtube a while ago.
 I had used fiskars sunburst edge punch and wanted to keep it simple by just adding the mango coloured strip to one end of the punch. Sentiment is a sticker which is stuck inside the card.

My sweetheart

Card made using the martha stewart doily lace punch. I had seen many cards using this punch in layers and wanted to try it on my card. Used a quilled flower with button and rhine stone in the centre. Crimper for swirls and pearls in the centre. Stamped the sentiment twice with black and mustardseed ink.
