Gate fold card 2

Hey there!

Salam!

My life is on a full force roller coaster, as if it didn’t have enough adventures already! I spent the last night trying to fit in all our belongings in all the suitcases and cartons I could find at home, while my hubby was throwing up all around the place. Poor soul is severely under the weather.. then we rushed to the E.R and after an hour or so of check ups and medicines, we came back home. I hope he gets better soon. 😦

So, coming back to the crafty life of mine… this card is from my previous makes, and the status of this card is – SOLD. 🙂

I love my DCWV scrap book paper and this floral series is one of my favorites. So, I made another gate fold card, which turned out surprisingly pretty.

Here is how it looks 🙂 .. I hope you like it.

So, I added handmade paper flowers that I punched out. Added sequins for the center of the flowers. A touch of glitter is a must … hehehe, and the yellow ribbon to hold the flaps in place was the finishing touch. 🙂

What do you think?

I’ll be back with a few more intresting makes… so stay tuned.

Till then,

Have an awesome day!

Mother’s day card..

Salam y’all!

Here is another card that I have to show you today. It is one of the easiest yet very elegant folds, the gate-fold.

I enjoyed making this one because it was easy and quick to make and it can accomodate loads and loads of variations. 🙂

I made this particular card for mother’s day. It is spring time too so combined the two and came up with this beauty!

Have an awesome Monday!

Card in a box… :)

Hey there!

Salam!

As promised, I am back with another fun creation. Last year I did simple fold cards, but this time I wanted some oomph factor to the cards I made.

One thing that I just can’t get the hang of are the measurements…. like 3 3/4 , 5 1/8 , 7 7/8…! I like things to be a bit easier, so I go with halves and quarters… that’s easy right?

This is exactly what I did with this card of mine… the flaps are 2.5″ x 5″. Sooooo easy!

So, the card folds flat, which makes it easier to mail. It has plenty of writing space, and is just plain awesome!

I will be putting up a tutorial for this one… pretty soon.. 🙂

Till then,

Have a lovely day !

Going red…

Hey there!

As promised, I am back with another make that I really like and thought of sharing it with you.

Valentine’s is just around the corner and all I can see is the color red everywhere. I made quite a few lovey dovey things, and this canvas is one of them!

2017-01-12_12-17-54

Done in acrylics with paper embellishments… this one is getting all the attention. 🙂

Will be putting this beauty up in the next craft fair.

Loads more to come… stay tuned.

 

Till then

 

Take care and have a lovely day.

Gearing up for the next fair…

Hey there!

Happy Monday!

I know I have been away from my blog for a good few days now. I have been so busy with the crafting and getting hundreds of other things ready, that I haven’t had the time to turn on my laptop. I despise blogging from my cell phone, (I am particular about a few things that don’t make sense at all!) so things had to wait till I had the time to do so.

I have been working on birthday and valentine theme at the moment, plus a few other projects.

I made mini canvases last year and they got an excellent response. I almost sold out on those save a couple. So, I thought of continuing with the canvases, only this time a bit big.

There is a little bit of light issue in my craft room. It is bright enough to work in complete ease but when it comes to taking pictures…. pppfffttt!!

Anyway… I used metallic rose pink acrylic for the word dreams… and used dimensional flowers on the sides of it. A bit of oil pastels around the typo and viola!

I still have a lot more to make, and so much is under process and so much excitement in my craft room that I am loving every minute of it!

Stay tuned for a lot more…

Till then….

keep working to make your dreams come true!

Love card….

Hey there!

Happy Tuesday! I have been working on a few cards and other projects, which will be uploaded as soon as I finish them. Today I have a more fancier card to show. I finished it last night and I loved the way it was glimmering in the dim light.

The black polka dotted paper I used is all glitter. Again the wordings were cut from a red metallic paper and the flower has a bit of red glitter on it too.

The size is a bit smaller than the earlier card and it looks just perfect!

Coming up next are a variety of other projects… so pay a visit again soon.

 

Till then,

Take care and have a glittery day!

Love is in the air!

Hey there!

Hope y’all had awesome holidays. I have been taking my time off from crafting to focus on the most important thing… my family!

So now after the holidays I am back in my craft room and I do admit that I was missing it.

More craft fairs are coming up and it is getting really exciting as I only have 20 days to prepare for the next event. Hubby dearest is there to cheer me on and help in whatever way he can! Love him to bits!

Today I tried making lovey dovey cards. They turned out pretty cool!

2017-01-02_14-10-20

My camera was unable to pick the iridescent glitter on the roses. Light issues I guess..

The wordings were done in red metallic sheet, which turned out pretty amazing!

I also continued with the red hearts inside to give it a finished look.

More cards in the making. Don’t forget to drop by again soon.

Till then

Have a lovely day!

Last of this season’s Christmas card.

Hey there!

Happy Sunday to y’all!

It seems as if things don’t settle down for me, even though I am now closed for this year’s orders and projects.

Somewhere in my mind, I am still thinking about the next year’s products and projects and ways to up my game. So, now it is official that there is no rest for my little brain!

Today I have to show you the last of the Christmas cards of this season. I made this card with my brand new punch that just arrived a few days ago. I love the design of the lace. I will surely be using this to the max in my new projects!

So, this wraps up the Christmas crafts for me.

Now, in a few days time I will be moving on to the next year’s orders and projects…

Till then,

Take care and have an awesome day!

My take on Christmas cards!

Hey there!

It has been some time since I last posted about my projects. It is the season of lots of craft fairs and carnivals and I have been really busy with the stalls. For the first time in my life I made Christmas cards and I enjoyed making every single one of them!

Here is one of the cards I made using “floral fantasies” scrap book paper and punches and dies.

This swirl leaf die is by far my favorite! I happen to use this the most. For me it goes really well with flower bunches.

I made a few more cards. I will be uploading them soon.

Do pop in back again.

Till then

Take care and have an awesome day!

Rainy day crafting…

Hey there!

It has been raining on and off all day and I spent a full day in the craft room enjoying the rain and crafting on. The weather is beautiful here and I am working on more gift boxes.

The boxes are in different shapes and sizes and it was fun working on them.

So what I have here for you today is a box that I made using die cut flowers and glitter.

It has to have glitter, doesn’t it?

At the end, I finished it off with a lavender ribbon and I was done.

🙂

More deisgns will be following in a bit of holiday theme. Till then

 

Take care and have an awesome week!
