Made this card for the inspired by Summer at CAS-tastic challenge blog. Stamped the Heroarts Starbrust lace in the center with white on white and distress inked with yellow n orange ink. BG is flourishes stamp embossed with white ep. on blue paper.
I have put some diamond stickles in the flower center. Hope its visible in the close up. It looks so pretty in real life. TFL.

My daughter...challenge# 8

My 6 yr. old made this all by her own...I just told her to use the 3 colors for this challenge. Now this is creative...I didnt help her at all, except taking the photo and posting. She was so excited that I am going to post it here...I had to stop her from creating more...Hope you like it.

Make a wish....

Made this card for a friends B'day. Chose the color from Moxiefab Tuesday trigger and since its a Birthday card it is perfect for Caardvarks current challenge. Now to me it seems Elegant enough, so its at Moxiefab style challenge (Classy and Elegant)as well.
Here is the Tuesday trigger photo:

My Card:
 The stamp was a gift from my friend Agata and I used it for the first time. Just had this design in mind and could put everything today only. TFL and leaving your sweet comments.

Card for Lilly (Paula)

Here is a card I made for Lilly to welcome her in the world. I have already sent the card to Paula and hope she got it without any damage. This all was organized by our sweet Deborah.
A tip for Paula since I also have 2 girls,  is that make time for Em to do special things with her only. Leave Lilly for an hour with your hubby or any known person. This will definitely make the bong stronger between the sisters.
Enjoy your family and good luck and wishes. A huge Congratulations to you and your hubby and of coarse Em(the big sis :)


I made this card for the EBTKS challenge. The sketch looks like this:
I stamped the Rose on Vellum and colored it and tore the edges. Then stamped the leaves again on vellum and stuck it to a piece of card and distressed the edges. Put this piece using foam pads to give 3D effect.
 Hope you like my creation. Enjoy the weekend.

July ccc

I had sent this card for Janet in Texas, as I took part in Card chain challenge, which is organized by sweet Deborah.
 I put some glossy accents on some parts of my flower.
Now my 6 yr. old want me to put her work in here, I hope you would enjoy her creativity. She made a booklet with A4 size paper all by herself and made these:

I love it, I hope you too....

Card Style....

Hello friends, hope you all are enjoying yourselves. Well here in Switzerland, we have 5 weeks of school holidays and also its too hot to do anything. So I was bit busy with the girls....acctually I was keeping them Which I would be sharing a bit later.
Back to Moxiefab card style, I got inspired by my 6 yr. old making n talking cute
So here is what I came up with...

I have put some glossy accents on my snacks and drink, its clear on the closeup photos. I drew the clouds my self and then wrote using the individual alphabets from Hero arts. The cup for whats perking set was bit big for my ladybird, so I cut it in length too.

Hope you would like, what I made. TFL.

Style challenge

The challenge at Moxie Fab World is to create 4 styles of cards and since I find myself drawn to CAS cards, here is what I came up with. I will be trying the other styles too. Hope I can manage that.

My card: 

As I mentioned Kathy sent me some SRM stickers and the challenge there is to create CAS.
I put the sticker on a glittery paper and it gives such a cool effect. Since the scallop circle is a die cut shape, I guess this is perfect for the challenge at apassionforpapertrey . Kraft paper and the ribbon are from Papertrey.Please leave a comment if you like my card as I love reading it.

Cards to share

Friends, this is my 2nd. post for today. As I wrote before, here are the cards I want to share. Now this card is a beauty and you all know her as queen of Dots....well guessed right...Kathy, you must visit her blog. Love the butterfly, its so vibrant, dont you agree!!!! She is kind enough to send me some SRM stickers to take part in  the contests. Thanks Kathy.
 Now the next card is from Jenny as part of July CCC which is organized by Deborah. Such a perfect card. It has this soft glitter all over which is difficult to show in the photo but looks so cool in real. Thanks Jenny. She also sent me some lovely crafting goodies, which I adore.

I hope you enjoyed these beauties....3rd. post coming

CAS- tastic 011

I saw this video from Jennifer recently and liked the idea of metallic bg. Since I do not own any metallic ink, I embossed it with copper ep which looks fab on Kraft...and that's the theme of CAS-tastic challenge this week. After embossing I colored the image with color pencils. I hope you like what I have created.

In time....

I so very much wanted to make this card for CAS-tastic sketch and didn't get the time....but as they say where there is a I hope the DT like my card. Since this card also has the same colors as my favorite colors at PDCC challenge, am going to post it there too.
Here is the sketch and the colors....

My take
I hope you would like what I created. I embossed my BG with white ep. Then I stamped the strip of flowers with pink Ink. My butterfly is colored with copics and glittered with diamond stickles. It looks so cool in real. Border is again embossed with white ep. and distressed with red ink. TFL.

Circle Cards

I want to show you all something which I created for the very first time...its circle cards. I never tried them before but use to admire them a lot. Today I discovered this Papertrey challenge and then it took a lot of courage to start with one ( have to tell you, those yummy papers have a big hand and couldn't stop and made these two. I really hope you would like it. I dont have any papertrey stamp just some ribbons, papers, inks and rhinestone...I would love to buy some stamps when I can as they are really lovely.

This first card is inspired by the birds hopping in the garden to tell me its summer... come n say Hello!!!.....started with keeping the bird in mind and then Grace in mind too, you can read about her at Jenniffer site. So this is for Grace, hope she would like it. Since this has window and bird, its perfect for this challenge at Tiffany doodles.

Did the BG with screen HA bg stamp. The cute bird was Lucys gift to me. Inks and Brown paper are papertrey.

The picture below is the color inspiration behind my 2nd card, which again has summery touch of flowers and butterflies.
I masked my circle in 3 parts, stamped and embossed 3 different HA bg stamps. Then for the white inner circle, embossed it with clear ep after stamping it with distress ink. Distressed the edges a bit made the flower using stamped HA bg on white paper. Assembled everything together and I hope you will like this too.
 My take

Stamps are all Heroarts, paper from Papertrey, inks Ranger and Papertrey

The school holidays have started here and its so difficult to keep the kids busy. I am planning to indulge in some craft activities with the girls.
So today after a few days I got some time for myself and made this card for the challenges at PDCC 36 and 2 Sisters blog and Papertrey ink.
I did the Card bg with my dots and flowers HA stamp and embossed it with white ep.I did the bg for the butterflies with my old letter writting in black, then I stamped some butterfly with pink ink. I then embossed two butterflies with Red ep.
My inspiration came from my garden as while enjoying my breakfast today morning sitting in the garden, I saw 2 Butterflies fluttering by on my red n pink Roses.....Finally summer is here and its too

You can see the Background which I embossed white on white using my dots and flowers HA stamp.

Hope you like what I created.

I was away.....

I was so busy last few weeks that I didnt even get time to write a small was full of guests. I want to share these 2 cards I made. First one I made for the PDCC challenge but was late in posting. I used this technique from Sally's at Heroarts.

The second card is for my little daughters Teacher. I embossed the flower with gold ep and colored it with distress inks. Then layered the center part.
