You light up my world like nobody else !!

Hey dearies,

I'm back with another card :) This is more of up-cycling project. While making the heart on a string cards I inked the white cardstock pretty badly and didn't want to throw it. Then this card idea came along and the white cardstock got used :) I had this song by One Direction lingering on my mind for long (check out the below youtube link). I just love the line "Baby you light up my world like nobody else" and so wanted to make a card using this as a sentiment.

But then how to decorate it with light was the next thought. Then it struck me, "why not use rhinestones?" I saw rhinestones being used as Christmas lights somewhere may be on a craft blog or an online store and I'm glad it stayed in my mind :) I first traced the light string on the card and then inked it with Studio G hot pink ink using a small cotton ball to create the light effect, then pasted twine for the cord and lastly stuck the rhinestones. This is how the card came out:
Although it looked beautiful the empty space left so much to be desired. So I added two little hearts on the sentiment. Ohh I forgot, the sentiment is a print-out not a stamp. The hearts are hand cut and then pixie-dusted using pie-lane glitter. I also added a glitter ball in "light" and "world". I loved the way the card turned out, beautiful !! I'm sending it for the following challenges:
Virginia's View Challenge at Lily Pad Cards
ICR Challenge 14.
Unstamped Belles Challenge 7

Hope you'll like it as well !!

Heart on a string 2!!

I told ya in the last post that I made three cards today. This on has the same sentiment as the previous one: "You've got my heart on a string" The colour combo remains the same here as well, kraft and white with red. The hearts are hand cut and then generously used pie lane pixie dust on it. The card came out just fab :)

This goes to the following challenges:
The Pink Elephant - Hearts
ICR Challenge 14
Papertake Weekly Challenge

Heart on a String!!

Looks like I'm on a roll today. And I guess I'm just trying to make up for the time I've been missing the fun of making cards. I made three more cards today. The theme was Valentine. I made two cards with the same sentiment. Here's the first card.

The hearts used in this card have been cut out from the below ac paper. Then I have stamped them randomly. The strings have been made of twine and the sentiment is a printout on the kraft paper. It took me all of 1 hour to complete this card. I'm entring this one as well for the ICRC14 Challenge. Hope you'll like it too :)

This card goes for the following challenges:
The Pink Elephant - Hearts
ICR Challenge 14

Sweet Candy Card

I'm back with another card and I love this card :) I have used the kraft paper for the first time in this card. I don't know why but twine's becoming my favorite lately.

This is the reason I made the flowers using the red twine and so are the stems. The leaves although are all stamped. I added a few rhinestones and the organza ribbon to pep up the card. I kept it as an all occasions card coz adding any sentiment would have done away the beauty, at least that's what I feel. The leaves were stamped using stazon forest green ink. Here's a close-up. Hope you'll enjoy it :)

ICR Challenge 14

Back with a card. Well as you know I've been missing for some time now from the blogosphere. What could be a better way to return but with a challenge. So here's the cards that I made for ICR Challenge 14 which happen to be anything goes and CAS card. My cards are as simple as they can be. They are basically notecards with little love notes written inside them. Made them for my hubby as the month of love is just around the corner. They are small so as to fit the lunch box. I put it inside my hubby box and man he was thrilled with joys when he opened it in office :) Wish I could see his face that time. So I leave it here now. I hope you'll like them as well. Please don't forget to leave a comment. I love reading them and they encourage me more. Till the next post keep smiling :)
