Stitched blossom in a stitched card...

Hello everybody,
Yes, its a stitched blossom in a stitched card!! I think I 'm nearly addicted to these blossoms from BasicGrey, Green at Heart collection. The colors were inspired from one of my favorite challenges- PPC!!

Very cool summer colors!! And so my card turned out so cool too :) The sketch was based on another wonderful challenge: 2 sketches 4 you.

Kazan's sketch is a bit strange but yet so fascinating and new!! Now onto my card:

The card looks vibrant and refreshing. By the way, you can take it the way you want: vertical or horizontal :) Let's zoom:

OK that's for now. Thanks for leaving me some love...

Paper-pieced flower...

Hi everybody,
This is my first trial with paper-piecing and it was so fun!! I stamped the stem and the flower separately and then had to cut them before assembling. This flower is playing for two challenges: SPCC #52 and EBTKS #17.

And here is my card:

The unseen details:

Can you see that only one side of the leaf is pieced and the stamped background? Ok, that's great. Have a wonderful time!!

TESC #117

Hello all,
What a wonderful sketch Taylored Expressions is playing with!! It looks simple but it has taken me so much time for the details...

Love that Gothic Haunted paper from Cosmo Cricket!! One thing that I should admit is the punch from EK success is so easy and light to use (other than its gorgeous pattern).

Lets get closer, you'll see the embossed sentiment 'Just for You'.

Hope you liked it... Thanks for passing by!!

SPCC #51

It's always fun to play in challenges especially when the colors are cool like those in SPCC #51

Here I made a mini card from Kraft cardstock by Bazzill Basics and patterned paper from Indian Summer Collection by BasicGrey. I know you must be stunned by Basicgrey Green at heart bloomer!!

That's for now. Thanks for passing by...

2S4Y Kazan's Sketch #54

Hello all,
I have become really addicted to the To Love and Cherish Collection by Imaginisce. It perfectly suits all occasions. One place that it also suited is the 2 sketches 4 you challenge :)

So based on this sketch, I made this card using the Imaginisce paper, Sheer Diagonal Ribbon from Maya Road and finished it with a silver embossed sentiment from Hero Arts.

Hope you liked it...

PPC-CC #16

Hi all,
Since long time I wanted to use DCWV Rub-ons Stitching on Kraft cardstock and fortunately it turned out so neat and cute. As I newly got my Martha Stewart Circle Cutter, you should not be surprised to see many of my cards with circles (I really love them!!). The colors are based on PPC-CC #16:

I first cut the circle and the stamped image before using the rub-ons with alternate colors. Then I popped in the flower and  just finished it with a favorite- ribbon!!

Thanks for leaving your kind comments...

Mojo 142 - CONTEST

Hi ladies,
It's time for a Mojo Monday Contest!! The sketch by Julee Tilman is so beautiful and one-of-a-kind.

And here is my entry:

I loved the patterned paper from Gothic Haunted Collection by Cosmo Cricket and one thing that I can't resist about this card is the punch design by EK Success Lattice Border Punch.
That's for now. Thanks for leaving me your kind comments... 

Black and White...

I am excited for two things: one, that I am playing for two challenges, second, my card just looks gorgeous :) with To Love & Cherish Collection by Imaginisce. The two challenges are Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #116 and Imaginisce June Sketch.

In this card I used both sides of the Imaginisce To Love & Cherish paper, Black Regards Chipboard  by American Crafts and Sheer Diagonal Plaid Ribbon by Maya Road.
I think Julia, my sister's friend, will be so thrilled to receive this card!!
Thanks for passing by...

Here is a card for the closest person in our lives: MOM. May God bless all moms of the world...
In this card I punched four black cardstocks with EK Success Corner Punch and then aligned them up to make the frame. Then I popped up the patterned paper, glued the alphabets from Black Regards Printed Chipboard Thickers by American Crafts and finished it with a big bow.

Black Butterflies...

Hello ladies,
After seeing these cute butterflies being used in many projects, I thought I should have ordered some. But, I'm afraid they will tear during mailing to my customers :(
Just have a look and surely you will fall in love with them too
