Catchy Design Challenge CSCC#3: Masculine Cards: Guest Design

Heylo all :)

When Deepti from Catchy Designs asked me to Guest Design in her latest challenge, I was beyond thrilled :) I love her work and love her stamping style. You all know how partial I am to stamping.. And I love her doodling, she isn’t afraid of free hand drawing and experimenting. Fabulous combination I say :)

The theme for this challenge is Masculine and only cards are allowed. And here is the yummmmmy inspiration. Gorgeous huh :)

And here is my take on it. My dad’s birthday was around the corner and I made this for him. All supplies linked below.

I was inspired about a lot of things in the inspiration picture – apart from the obvious of course. :D

The red and black panel on the left reflects the brick wall, the clock representing a Birthday and the same colour as the hunk’s golden skin, the green backdrop is from the grass and don’t miss the three birds from the lamp posts.

And yes, I had to make a one layered card… but the collage-ing is a new one to me. I am so glad I tried the layering-collage effect. I loved making this card.

Now, off you go and play along. I can’t wait to drop by and see what you create. I think this inspiration has a lot of potential. I know I would be playing along again.

What went in

Thanks for stopping by and good luck with the challenge :)

God bless.

These measure 3x3 inches and you can write a note on the inside.

PS: I stamped the hearts three times after inking it once. Cool effect right :)

Birthdays are made of this!!

This is one long pending post. Nothing to do with Paper Crafting.. mm.. well, maybe a little bit :)

For the last 3 birthdays in our home - K’s 4th and 5th, and A’s 2nd – we’ve been having the birthday celebration at our home.. the decoration and cake (yes, cakes too) are all home-made and hand-made.. It has been a lot of fun.

Today let me introduce you K’s 4th birthday party – the theme being ‘Rainbows’.

I’ll not write too much.. and let the pictures speak :) More fun that way :)

The decorations in Rainbow colours – I skipped Indgo :)

CraftyJC Rainbow Birthday Shoes

Hand painted shoes with Rainbows and Sunshine.. Because she is My Sunshine and Rainbow. Love you K.
Both shoes have different themes..

Regular BATA canvas shoes, the print was hand sketched, outlined with permanent markers and then coloured in with Acrylic paints.It still is very pretty.

Tutorials & Recipes I used

  • The Rainbow butterfly mobile using the Sizzix Die : Birds & Butterflies Set
  • Rainbow cake recipe: Sin-a-mon
  • Rainbow Balloons – Design Mom
  • Painted Shoes – google. – The design is all mine, copyrighted and all that .. you can use it for your own purposes :)

I’ll soon post pics of the A’s second and K’s 5th birthdays… and not wait till K turns 7! :)))
I hope this inspires you to try this at home :) Any questions, please ask .. I am more than happy to help.
