Card with Tag

This month I did pretty less crafting, busy with work and other stuff. Did only yesterday and today. This was made for my niece for her school, later I decided to do a matching tag and participate in the challenge. Though the card and the tag both are not that good and people have awesome creations, still I wanted to play along.

Shabby Scary Cat

Shabby cat card, this is not really how I wanted it to look. This is specially made for lulupu challenge. I did not want to make circle and some die cut shape card so tried this. Wanted it to look cute but this is more like not even CAT but that's how it is. Was in no mood to do anything more with it. This is cat shaped card, distressed the edges with scissor the with distress ink. Some ribbons, laces, flowers and buttons. 

I wanted to use paper piecing to make her dress but then changed the mind.

Simple Thank U Card

Today I made this simple and quick Thank U card. There is not much time and I was tired all Diwali chores but I was craving to do one so this one. Once again my favorite Washi Tapes rescued me. This embossed paper was a gift from Piali (Really thankful to her, my order to her was not big but she was generous enough to send a card kit as free gift). 

Another reason I wanted to keep this card simple because I wanted to show the embossed paper by Piali completely. This card is really a thank U note to Piali. She is the one who asked me if I have a blog and I should start and share it. Thanks Much.

I L U Card, Elements of 3

This card made today, used washi tapes, pattern paper is actually from a cover and not really a pattern paper. It was beautiful that I did not want to throw it. Stitching and die cuts.

This card is made keeping some challenges in mind. One is JC's unusual wing, beyond grey, highlight sentiments etc. First is 3 parallel lines of washi tapes and 3 different colors as well. Next hot pink is card base, baby pink then stitching is done with red color thread. Heart die cut also has 3 colors, lowest one is red polka dot paper then some while pattern paper then red. I was so lazy to cut a new heart shape so I have reused from the scarps left over. It was not bad and I got to match 3 colors here so was good. 

And the sentiment " I Love U" is the highlight.

Lastly 3 pattern papers, 3 colors arranged in parallel :)

Angel's Bday

Another one made today using Washi Tape, some stitching, stamping and coloring, buttons.  Picture has not come out well, pretty bad at it.

Planning to send this for Beyond gray happy stitching challenge.

A bright side

Card made today. As usual the plan was something else but ended up with something different. I tried to incorporate 3 parallel lines challenge from Jaya C in this one by using 3 parallel lines of Washi Tapes. 

Coloring is from Luna watercolor pencils. I am liking these pencils but need to improve with these.

Love card with flowers

This card has love theme. Can be used for anniversary or wedding etc. As you see die cuts are used, some from crafter's corner, some from craft adda and one I bought from Kavi Tha. These flowers are recycled and hand made from old flower pots. First got all the petals, washed these, dried, colored a little then stacked all petals to give a flower shape.

One thing I like about this card is the shadow affect in the couple standing. -:)

Cake with Crunchy Top and Nutella Truffles

Again not a neat picture, this cake has a crunchy top with Nutella truffles. Crunchy top was  made with oats, brown sugar, corn and almonds. Nutella truffles were better than the cakes :)

Cake with Choclate Dust

Not a neat picture but this is what I have. This was my second cake, first I do not think I have a picture. This is simple cake done quite a while back. Then I did not start or know anything about frosting so I just put some chocolate dust on top of it. Picture may be bad but taste was better.. That's what everyone was looking for :D 

Photo Frame with Roses - Incomplete

My first photo frame with some roses. Black one is a rolled rose which was the first try and rest were just made for try. Actually I had no plans to make a frame but then I wanted to make some use of the roses. Roses can be a lot better, these were the first roses I did from some tutorial. Sides of the frame are done using magazine papers, rolled and glued. This is not complete it, I need to add a stand for this frame. Not happy with this but OK for the first time. Feedback please?

Quilled Miniatures

First try for quilled miniatures. I saw some folks making pretty tea sets, pots and other stuff with paper stripes. I too tried, not good but was able to manage. Used mini mold for this but it can be a lot better.

There are 2 cups here, one flower pot and those 2 gray ones are just like that.

This was created yesterday, 1st October.

Woven Gift Bag - Not complete yet

This is my first woven gift bag. Not complete yet, need to add some ribbon and a bow to it. Will post the update picture. For now this. This took a while to do because I do not have any trimmer etc as of now so I measured all the stripes using scale, marked these using pen and then cut everything then weaved. I used very thick card sheet here so that it can hold stuff.

Woven News Paper Bag

This was my second news paper tote bag. The first one was smaller. I did this to put my baking stuff. Plan was to make a lid as well and then make compartments into in it but that did not happen till now. Its already in use and yes it was pretty strong. I was thinking to take these bags for grocery shopping to promote recycled products. :)

First Ever Blog

Just created this blog today for FUN and this name :) is not thought over at all but manageable. I always had interest in arts and craft but never tried my hands on except once in years but now it is here, trying to do something almost daily, getting inspired by many talented people around. Lots of stuff to be used, created, options. Wishing me luck. Help me GOD.
