Inspired By: Day 5

AWIC 2 – Day5 :) Fun.

Today’s card is super simple.

I wanted to make a birthday card and Google-d Simplicity and this is what I decided to CASE. Mine is super simplified :))


This Felt embellishment is from ItsyBitsy – I am glad I could finally use it. Sentiment is from Hero Arts Ink-n-Sweets Stamp set.This set has a lot of fun elements :)

Inspired By: Day 4

Ok, stalking continues :)

I don’t have many stamps. Just a handful. And looking around at challenge blogs and other blogs on my Google Reader makes me feel wanting. My cards are simple – almost plain. Busy cards don’t make happy – but that doesn’t stop me from feeling “oh I can never make something like that”

That’s when Simplicity helps. Susan’s cards and her insights are always ALWAYS a big source of inspiration. I look around her blog and find that simple is good. I don’t have to have a lot many things happening for my card to be nice : )  Ok, let me say that again. Ahem.

Today’s inspiration is Simplicity and Tejal. Tejal is so taken with butterflies – I find that very sweet. She is very giving, warm and encouraging. So, today I searched Simplicity on Google Feed for butterflies.

I had shortlisted some 7 cards and in the end these are based on this for the layout (butterflies and the sentiment) and this for the embellishments


This Stampabilities dots background is the only background stamp I have – so it was the obvious choice :) See fewer supplies means lesser time to decide <grin/>

Stamped this in the middle with clear embossing and then embossed over the stove’s flame. Rubbed ink all over.


This green one has the dots stamped with some left over ink in the stamp which I forgot to wipe and clear embossing ink – then clear embossed. Butterflies diecut is from itsybitsy.

The banner is due to smudged-ink. And the stamp is my, yes you are right, Hero Arts Everyday Saying :)

I wish I had something interesting to day about the colours like Susan does – but since I have nothing to say – let me stop my rather rambling post now! :)))

Entering for these challenges

Inspired By: Day 3

This weeks OLW #44 is to be inspired by Marta's boards. My choice is this pinterest here

I wonder if Susan herself remember this one on Simplicity :)

Today’s card is a combination of these two.


The colours of flowers are the same and in the same order as that of Marta’s pinterest here. And the flowers and the sentiment placement is based on Simplicity’s card here

I now hope Susan doesn’t start to think I am stalking her! <grin/>

This goes to the challenges

Day 3 of AWIC Edition 2. I am a survivor :)

Thanks for dropping by. Glad to have you over here :)

Inspired By: Day 2

I am addicted to AWIC!! I think as of today I am officially playing along ! :))
Who would have thought I’d be frantically making cards everyday! Thanks girls for the infectious enthusiasm! I owe it to you all..
.. and to Susan at Simplicity. I don’t have to say who I’ve CASEd – again.

The eyes are inspired by Snail’s Pace. I thought Susan was talking about butter/dragon flies. Now I hope they too have eyes at the end of the tentacles :D
Die cuts from itsybitsy, Sentiment from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings and card stock is Fabriano.
Thanks for stopping by and all your lovely comments last week.

Inspired By: Simplicity

Well, I had all plans to play along with AWIC Edition 2. But just don’t have the .. mmm.. energy :)

But I think I’ll play along from the outside – at a best endeavours basis. I hope I won’t kick myself after posting 7 cards :)))

This card is inspired (read CASE) by Simplicity’s  card You Are Wonderful.

And here is my CASEing of this card. (I wanted to post Susan’s card also – but wasn’t sure about copyright etc) DSC01174

An (very) old Hobby Ideas stamp, MS border punch and Hero Arts Everyday Sentiment. Rounded of with Buttons from ItsyBitsy

Thanks for dropping by.



PS: I am linking AWIC 2 here :)

AWIC Edition 1: Day 7

I hereby state that I made these cards before 11PM last night and would like to emphatically blame Power Supply for the delay in posting them :)

Well, the final post for AWIC Edition 1.

I have two super simple cards to show you. Super simple to make after the not so super simple thought process :o)


Cuttlebug Swiss dots and Birthday die cuts. I don't to use any other folder than my Swiss dots.!!  Maybe I should sell them.


Thanks for visiting.

Looking forward to Edition 2 which starts tomorrow. Email me at mail.craftyjc(at) if you like to play along for a week of madness! :))

My AWIC playmates thanks for all the fun!  YOU girls rock and HOW!!
