Anniversary with Dots & Swirls

Hey Peeps,

Are you working on your creative fingers..lolzz!! You all are, Right?? A little quick post from me.

One of my friend's anniversary is soon approaching, so I though of making an anniversary card for her. I used a sketch from Get Sketchy, as this sweet sketch looks so elegant and truly saying I got a chance to work with my polka dot DP. Ohh!! I love the big dots :D. And then there was a picture inspiration challenge from ABC Design Blog. Just perfect timings for me :). So, here is my colorful card for my friend:

I added some blings; ribbons and bows; stamped some images of cake, butterflies and flowers on dotty PP; and viola!! my card is ready in less than 30 minutes :). I tried a new technique (some of you have probably done this before, but mine is first time); I stamped the sentiment on ribbon. And it really turned out well..yeahhh :)

I am playing the following challenges with this card:
Get Sketchy - GS#57
The Craft Den - week#18 'going round in circles'
Incy Wincy - challenge#61 'anything goes'
Wild Orchids - challenge#6 'ribbons & bows'
Practical Scrappers - 'stamps'
Ai Factory - challenge#49 'anything goes'
Pink Elephant - TPE84 'use aqua, designer paper & embellishment' {I used aqua color ribbon, DP and blings}
ABC Design Blog - 'inspiration challenge'

Recipe for this card:
Paper - textured CS in purple from Pressed petals, polka dot DP from color bok
Stamps - mini stamps of flower, cupcake and butterfly from Stampendous, Sentiment from hero Arts
Others - ribbons and blings

This is all from my side. See you again.... Have a splendid time

Spookiliciously Cute - PPC#59

Hey Everyone,

Its Friday again!! So, a new challenge at Paper Cutz with a much awaited weekend..lolz. I don't know about you, but I definitely look forward to the weekend as a school going child :D. Jokes apart!!!
Now, onto the challenge, this week at the Paper Cutz; we are portraying a Halloween theme, "BUT with a TWIST"... You have to create a card, LO or craft project for Halloween using any colors you'd like; And the twist is NO BLACK or ORANGE. Isn't is fun to use different colors for Halloween?

So here is my project for this spooky theme. The only difference is mine is mile apart from being spooky..lolzz I created a treat bag and a card to complement each other. :)
Isn't it spookiliciously cute?? Here is a pic of the card.
And a treat bag - 
I am sure, anyone would love receiving treats in this treat bag :D. I created this treat bag following Mary's Tutorial. It is created by recycling junk envelopes. Great idea Mary!! I always hated to throw them away in a trash (How much paper we waste?). Its a nice way bring them in use.
For rest of my card, I used "spider web" Digi Paper from, printed them on green CS. The CS in pink is also created by using this dead (kind of) tree from Trick and Treat Set from the same shop. I made it into a digi paper by setting the miniature size of tree many times in a page. The ghosts and sentiment are stamped and cut outs. Other embellishments include broom made of felt cloth and a ribbon for hanging the board.

I am entering this project in the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes - challenge#35 'use 3 different embellishments' {I used ribbon, felt cloth and wooden stick for broom}
Simon Says -'Move it' {the ghosts are actually in the air... so they are moving.. I hope it qualifies the condition :x}
Stamping Vacation - No No challenge 'no sparkle'
ABC Challenge -D for Distressing
The Stamp Man - challenge#5 'distress'
Scrappekammeret - challenge#14 'anything goes'
Stamp Something - September Digi day 'use a digi'

So peeps, hop onto PPC blog and enter your card for the challenge. 
Have a happy weekend.

Fanning Congratulations

Hi Girlies,

It's Friday again or I would say TGIF!! And that also means there is a new challenge posted on Paper Cutz Challenge blog. This time with the old DT inspirations, you get to see many fresh inspirations for the new DT members also. And I belong to later category...lolzz. So, this is my first post as a DT member. I was so excited and had fun making card for this challenge :).

This week we have an easy-paesy Recipe Challenge - 1-2-3. All you have to use is 1 Ribbon, 2 Buttons and 3 Colors. See, how easy is this? So, here is my card for this sweet simple recipe.

This time, I created a slightly different card. So, sharing one more pic with you of the difference :)
This card is a hybrid of stamping, distressing, masking, shadowing, scalloping and accessorizing. I used masking grass bed, stamped flowers on it, double stamped the peacock image (for shadowing affect), distress the scalloped edges and accesorizing with ribbon, buttons and blings :).
