Flag Album - Guest Design at Nakshathra Designz!

Hello Crafty Folks!

Here is my project for guest designing again at Nakshathra Designz! This time, I have tried my hands on a different kind of album for the first time - Flag Album :) And that too with the gorgeous Mandala paper pack! I'm just totally in love with this pack! Check out how awesome these papers are in this album!

Front of the album


Back of the album - keeping it plain

Side view

I'm in love with shaker elements these days! Made a shaker with diecuts from Gina Marie scallop stitched circles and sequins in blue and silver shades. Flowers are from Itsy Bitsy and the butterfly is a diecut from Sizzix Winged Beauties.


Memories stamp is from Craftyscrappers and heat embossed in gold. I've mounted the sentiment onto a diecut from Gina Marie scallop stitched rectangles, using foam tape. Added pearls for more interest.

This is how it looks on opening!

Isn't this lotus gorgeous!! I love how it suits perfectly for the sides of the album! 


I've kept the embellishments to the minimum inside the album, as I didn't want to cover the beautiful papers :) Also, once pics are added, matching elements can be added later.

A few more glitter butterflies


It's always good to see any creation in real, than photos right? Here it is!! :)

Birthday Card 2

Hello,

Now here is a birthday card similar to the previous one, but in a different way. I had earlier used the positive die cut, and now I'm using the negatives! Isn't that fun?

So here it is.




It was a little tough to get all the tiny pieces sticking onto the right place, but somehow I managed it :) As an added interest, I included a flower ribbon along with the pearls.

Birthday Card - 1

Hello,

So here is a simple birthday card made using one diecut.
I first took a Bielo cardstock and distressed with Wilted Violet. Then ran it through the diecut machine with Gina Marie die. I attached the diecut to a pink cardstock and added some pearls along the central oval shape. The sentiment is stamped using the same DI, and the smaller designs are from Mudra - Mendhika stampset.

Masking - Ria's Gonna Party!

Hello folks,

I have a one layered card to share with you all today. It is inspired from Jennifer McGuire's recent simple masking technique cards. I've used Mudra's Ria stamp and masked the left and bottom border. I've also masked Ria for the background. Stamped images and sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink, colored using distress inks and Fuji watercolor folios. I've also used Mudra Geo Pattern stencil along with distress inks for the background. Added some sequins from Itsy Bitsy sprinkles for more interest and sparkle to the dress.

Colorful Birthday Butterflies

Hello,

Today I have a card using both the positive and negative die cuts.




The positive is the scallop stitched inverted frame from Gina Marie designs. The negative is the butterfly from Sizzix. I initially die cut the butterfly from white cardstock. While the die was still in place, I applied glue on the negatives and transferred on to a patterned paper from Nakshathra Designs - Birthday theme. Once the negatives stuck to the pp, I ran it through Gina Marie frame die. For the background, I colored using watercolors and distress inks in rainbow shades, with random brush strokes. I mounted the butterfly panel on to background. added white frame as a border and matted it to red cs base. The sentiment is stamped using Candied apple DI.

Second Birthday Card :)

Hello,

So here is the card I made for my daughter's second birthday :)

I've used the Pretty Basics and Happy Birthday paper packs from Papericious. The cake stamp is from Let's Party stampset from Mudra, stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored using Faber Castell watercolor pencils. The frame die and the oval die are from Gina Marie designs. Ribbon to pull the interactive element is from Itsy Bitsy. The oval diecut is distressed using Wilted Violet distress ink and misted with a fine spray of water. The cake panel is mounted using foam tape.




That's my daughter's name Bhuvi :)

Birthday Invitations

Hello,

It is my daughter's second birthday and I made these invitations for her small party :)

With the constraint of time, I had to make cards in bulk, so I chose to go with embossing folder and keep it simple. The content goes on a tag which is inserted into a pocket on the card.
