AWIC Edition 1: Day 6

Day 6! :) Phew! Am I thrilled or what! :D


My first monochromatic card.


Just a hint of glitter on the flowers. Both the flowers and sentiment are digital – from my stash. The flower digi stamp is from papergardenprojects – called Spring Blooms. Sentiment computer generated – you can download it here.

I was VERY tempted to pop in a button or some colour somewhere – but I resisted, only just adding a tiny amount of bling.

PS: What a concidence! LOL! :) Ujjwal also has posted a monochrome card! :)

AWIC Edition 1: Day 5

I’ve seen these beautiful hand made flowers on blogosphere – especially likes these one: Juhi’s and Creation-Faeries . Have always wanted to make one but never have before today.


The card stock is more Kraft than Gray :) But Gray is what my camera thinks it is.

Scallop Nestabilities layered and scrunched to make the flowers


A few pearls and my silver gel pen finishes up the card

I am thrilled with the results :)

AWIC Edition 1: Day 4

Thanks for the lovely wishes for my little K. Here she is – our little flower :)
Ah! we’ve survived! :)) Day 4! I feel so good!
Ok I was tempted to put away one card for tommo :D But .. lol.. here they are.
This is one is just a random one – a couple of CB die cuts, CB Swiss dots emboss and Fiskars punch and a random layout

And this one – I LOVE!!
Can you see the Glitter Strip on which the flowers are resting?  I read about it on Paperlicious about Nichole Heady’s Make it Monday - Glitter Strips with Scor Tape.
When embossing, I left a bit of empty strip on which I laid down a double sided tape I got in Venus Traders (Pune) and sprinkled Hero Arts’ Prisma Glitter on it and wow.. it is beautiful. I am soo pleased with the result. Do try this and let me know!

AWIC – Edition 1

Here is therapy for everyone who wants to kick start their mojo – kick being is the operative word here and therapy mean over-dosing any one particular remedy! :)

So here we have AWIC – A Week In Cardsthe idea is to make and post a card the same day for one whole week. Phew! That is my addiction program, girls!

With 6 more minutes go, here I post my first card :) If my midnight photography is miserable, I’ll re-post the pics alone tomorrow.

When I saw this post on Paperlicious, I’ve always wanted to case it. That’s the main reason I bought this five petal punch.



This card’s layout is inspired by this week’s Card  Patterns Sketch 104.

If you are wondering about the similarities, please look closely :o) The layout is REALLY inspired by this sketch.

A 2x3 layout, ribbon and two accents. :))






5 Petal Punch from itsybitsy, butterfly punch from Venus traders, Pune. Paper from a DCWV stack I got years back from Joann.


The pics are soo dull – I think I HAVE to post the pictures again tomorrow.

I am glad I hopped in to this challenge. The next edition starts March 8th. Email  me at mail.craftyjc(at) if you want to play along. The only rule is “One Card a Day for One Week” and you must make an post the card the same day :)

Thanks for visiting.

One Flower, Three flutter-bys and a Million Polka dots

Here is a card I made recently – which I sent to Karuna – she is my Secret Sweetheart :) (a fun game we played in India amongst fellow crafters)


Did you know that while stamping large images – especially backgrounds – standing on the stamp after inking and placing it  on the card provides an even impression? I think I read this on Savitri’s blog. It actually worked!

The felt flower was meant to be a die cut – it started as a cuttlebug die cut – but ended as hand cute :D I couldn’t get a nice cut out.


The butterflies are from a tiny punch and the flourish is a Sizzix Sizzlit die - Decorative Swirls Set. The Sizzix Outlet has great deals throughout the year. Sizzlits works with cuttlebugs too.


The “hi” sentiment is from a Stencil which kids use. I think they are good to use for short sentiments. Thought I will pass on that idea to you :)

PS: Coming up with titles for the blog post is no easy :D

Thanks for dropping by.
