Something old...something New

I was inspired by Lucy's baby cards for some time now. I had to make a baby card for a friend.
 I made it using my oldest supply...this light blue paper and my color pencils. One of the first papers I bought as a set of 5 pastel color papers. My newest is this Baby boy stamp set ( a gift from my teenage daughter...lol). So I think its justr perfect for Lucy's challenge. Thanks Lucy for the lovely challenge and for all the yumm gifts you had sent me. I still just adore them from a distance hoping it will never finish;) Sorry for the bad picture....weather is not so great...tho its covered with Snow everywhere. I am also entering it for the challenge at Yyam's blog as it fits perfectly.

Tag...Is it really???

Well lets find out what I made...it looks like Tag but when you pull it....see for yourself :)
I made these Tags for the current HA challenge, I was waiting for the weather to little bit get better but....finally I had to take photos, which btw. aren't so great.
 Now, when the lower part is pulled down, the Tag becomes a Bookmark....love it. I am going to make these for my Daughters friends....
Distressed the BG with Broken china and Shabby shutters distress inks and spritzt it with Perfect pearl water. Stamped the Swirly Stars with Silver ep. and Sentiment with Red. For the pull-out, I stamped the Snowflakes with white ep and adhered my Pingu, which I had stamped on other paper and put some diamond stickles on cap n the Neck wrap.

 Hope the delicate glimmer of perfect pearl water and The stickles are visible in the closeup.


 I distressed the bg with Antique linen, Fired brick and Aged Mahogany distress inks and then spritzt my Florish bg stamp with Gold perfect pearl and stamped. I hope you can see the shine in the closeup. It looks so pretty. Then I embossed the Ornament with some glittery Gold ep and some stars with gold ink. For the pull-out, I distressed it with AL and FB distress inks, then spritzt it with gold pearl water. Embossed the sentiment with Red and some stars in the BG with gold ink. Hope you like it.
 Hope the glitter and Gold perfect pearl is visible in the closeups.


 Thanks for looking, please leave your sweet comments, its really motivating.

Christmas cards everywhere.....

Somehow I am falling short on time. Everytime I see a challenge or such lovely Christmas cards on the bloggyworld my hands itch but time....where to find it??? and then my little one asked me to makle Angel cards for her teachers and some of her favorite Pingu's( Penguins) too. So here is what I came up with.
 I embossed the Music background with some crystal ep. put some Diamond stickels on the wings, distressed the white paper behind Angel with some Tumble glass Distress ink and assembled all together. It look really pretty as its all glittery.
 This is almost same as above except I inked the BG stamp with my distress ink...its gives a lovely effect. This time I used Crystal stickles.
 For this card I stamped the Magical bg. with some Antique linen distress ink. then Stamped these lovely n cute Penguins on watercolor paper and colored using my distress inks. For the snow I put some glitter. Some Stickels on the scarf n Cap for all that glittery effect. This cute little one is made with shrink plastic and stuck with a glue dot. I added the score tape and put glitter for the frame, again lots of lovely sparkle.
 This card is made using the same techniques as above, just some color changes. All these cute sparkly blings and silver pearls( adore them) were a purchase from pizzazzaplenty.
So I am submitting my cards for the following challenges:

I am still Alive.....

Hello there Friend....my Apologies for not being here ....I made few cards but never got time to post them. I do take a lot of time in taking photos and then resizing them. Wish I knew some short way. Anyhow here are the cards I created for Christmas.
I adore this Holly  HA stamp and love coloring it:
 I stamped on some watercolor Paper and colored using the distress inks. Then stamped with the woodgrain stamp using green distress ink. Embossed the sentiment with Gold ep. To finish used this lovely lace and distressed the edges..

 I clear embossed the Music bg stamp on Maroon card. Stamped and colored my Holy stamp on cream card. Adhered it on some Antique gold paper. To finish, some glossy accent and this beautiful ribbon with golden edges. It looks really pretty in real life.

I stamped the bg with white ink on Kraft, colored the Holly and adhered it on some Maroon card. Now I want to tell you that I bought this lovely lace and Ribbon from  Pizzazzaplenty. Really great service and lovely collection and super cool prices. I will post some cards tomorrow using the Swirl Christmas stamp.
Hope you liked my cards....TFL.
