Flowery Engagement Card

Why is it sooo hard to come up with a decent title for my post? Anywho....Here I am with another Engagement Card on order. And nothing like last day panic to push that creative juices....sat till 12 am to finish this...and somehow the glitter makes me all happy!!

Spent all day die cutting and punching flowers to see what would fit since I used these, I have about 30 punched flowers on the spare!!  These flowers made from old pages, and are die cut with the Daisy Head Spellbinders's die, distressed with inks and misted with LSG glimmer mists, Pie Lane glitter balls, and if that wasn't enough, Sakura Stardust pens for that extra glitter.

Sentiment embossed with Ranger's Queen's Gold embossing powder on Parchment paper. Chery Lynn Butterfly glitter with LSG spray and Sakur stardust pen.

This is how it all finally looks....its  huge card...9x7 inches finished size.  Pretty straight forward if you ask me...and yet a lot of work if you know what I mean.

Not much of supplies...but if you want to know any particular product, do post it, will let you know...

On a different note, does anyone want a video tutorial of the cake from my previous post? or Would a sketch be enough to explain....just wondering!! let me know and I'll make that as my next post....

Anniversary Exploding Box

Hello everyone...this is probably my cutest project ever. I totally loved making it..and I'm still awaiting a reaction from the recipient, but hopefully they love it too....It was a custom order from a friend. To make something, that I've never made before and it had to be PINK.. I hope this is pink enough for them.

This is a big box....its a 5x5 inches square box. There is just one layer, and only 2 extra panels...I wanted the highlight to be the cake.

I however could not get much pics...I finished the project at night..and had to deliver it then itself. Few below are from my cellphone, so a bit fuzzy, but I guess it gives you an idea.

The bottom most panel has a pocket with two heart tags (with butterfly toppers) for the recipient to write a personal message.

This is the top of the box.

This cake is probably my biggest pride right now. I wanted to do something different, and the usual round cakes wasn't too exciting for me. And being a huge huge fan of 'Fabulous Cakes" on TLC, I had to try something new. .I had these mulberry flowers hoarded for over 2 yrs. Finally I used them where I wasn't scared of squishing them down.

The side panels are decorated with more rolled roses from MFT dies and some floral ovals...(Can't thank Khushboo enough for those die cuts and the sentiment sets..this project would be incomplete without your loan) and for the Piece de Resistance...the floating butterflies....those are done with acetate and butterflies from Itsy bitsy. Acetate here is the packaging from Spellbinder dies that I had hoarded, not the OHP transparencies. I feel the OHP is too too thin and floppy.

Loads of supplies used, so feel free to email if you want to know anything particular.
Oh yes, I know you're dying to ask the square cake tutorial...go check out Sazzle Craft, and don't forget to thank her for her superb tute!
I'll be doing one soon too...if you can wait.

See you soon with another crafty post...

The Reminder book

A craftypost from me after a long time . This is already up on Swap Central so I thought I might as well post it here. This reminder book was super awesome to make...and super fun....I took everything I love about stamping and colors and put that down in this book.

7 colors of the rainbow, stamping, embossing and distressing! All that I love about stamping is what makes the theme of this book!

I love how this cover turned out. I initially was not sure how to do these rays, but found a quick way to do it. and it turned fab. All the colors on the cover are the same colors that I used on the inside of the book. The ribbons are also 7 in color.....and the tags included in the pockets are also the same color as the page.....Talk about color co-ordinating! The Alpha's are stickers from PrintaStick.

Just a quick run down on all the stamps and inks used. All CS is Fabriano. The background Versamark stamp is hero arts Large stripe flower, and the lower half is Hero arts background Flower Dot Pattern Clear embossed and Distressed with Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord . The Alphabet is a local stamp I purchased, which is again white embossed on a frame cut out from a hero arts Stripes and Frame Set (Romina, I finally used the stamp you sent!! :D) 

Check out the cute little birdie U-pin I snagged locally!! got tons of shapes of those pins...turtle, croc, sheep, cow, rabbit etc!! :D

The Feb page has hearts watermarked in the background, but hard to see because of the color. The flourish stamp is embossed in white, Distressed with Barn Door and Fired Brick

The March page has little bunnies (easter bunnies if you will) from Lawn Fawn, and the Hero arts clear embossed. Distress inks used are Stormy sky and Chipped sapphire.

The April silver heat embossed. The background has little dragon flies - an old hobby ideas stamp)
Distress inks used - Spun sugar and Worn Lipstick

The May has Damask background stamp from PTI, and heat embossed lower panel. I could not match the color of distress inks, so just heat embossed on the same color card-stock. Though it looks black, its green ..

The June side has PTI sunflowers stamp in the background and clear embossed Flourish stamp in the lower panel on the same green CS.

July tag is embossed in Gold, Unity butterflies in the background and White heat embossed lower panel. 

Aug is silver embossed, and PTI Butterfly Dreams in the background. The lower panel is distress with Pumice Stone distress ink.

Sep tag is Gold embossed, Mehendi Medallion in the background (stare closely and slowly). Lower panel distressed with Wild honey and Spice marmalade and tinge of Rusty hinge.

My favorite month and color... Oct Tag is silver embossed, and PTI Friends till the end in the background.
Lower panel distressed with Tumbled Glass.

Nov tag gold embossed, and Autum Leaves stamp in the background. Lower panel distressed with Tea Dye, Antique linen and Vintage photo. ( I love this shade..its warm and cozy on a winter day..reminds me of cinnamon..)
The last page .. cloud stamp from Imaginisce .. lower panel inked with Broken China.

This is the tags that I have included in the pockets.

Hope you liked it and my partner did too!! It was a lot of work, even though it doesn't look like it wasn't!

If you have any questions about any product or technique...ask me and I shall be happy to clarify things for you.

Till then!!
