Tilda by the fireplace

Hi all,

Before I put up my post on my next project I would like to share with you all a good news. I won as Top 5 at MDUC. This is my first ever win at such challenges. I am so so happy!!

Now I am back with my post on my fav lil one Tilda. I know my cards mostly rotate on her but I just simply adore her. This time I made a fireplace which can be folded and sent out and mailed to people for xmas too. though it is 3D yet it can be folded. However since I was just trying it I thought I would make one and see if it looks ok...

Here it is the main picture. I have made a fireplace completed with the decoration and all including the fire (LOL)

Materials :

plain cardstock
accessories - stocking, holly leaves, lights, pearls and stars

Butterfly Waterfall Card

Hi all ,

I am so so happy today as I learned something new. There is this amazing group on FB and they swap cards. Their theme was waterfall card and I have never done anything like this. I saw on tube to further educate myself in that area and guess what I enjoyed it so much that I made 2.

Below is the first one that I made. Its got butterflies of different colors on every layer and it went very well with the combination too.

Here it is


I will be entering the following card for the challenge which is happening at Beyond Grey as their challenge is all about making a card without any stamp images or digis. You all should try its so much fun.

My second waterfall card will soon be posted too. Don't miss out..

Hugs.

Another Day in Paradise

Hi everyone,

Back after a vacation to Sydney - one of my favorite places in the world. The weather, the trees, the people, the everything !! well what to do I just love that place. Shopped a lot of goodies from there as usual and took me days of tidying up as well as tidied up my craft room which was so messy until yesterday. Thank God !!

Today's card is just something I love - the beach. Walking on the sand, watching the sun rise or sun set, listening to the birds or the waves is always soothing for me. I simply love it. I am always blessed that every time I visit Sydney I can see something special and this card just reminds me of that.

Here it is my creation of the day. Its a stepper card with works!


and below are some more views of the card from different angles 











                                           


Final view of Tilda having fun 



Hope you liked the card.

Sail Away !!!

I know my previous post was supposed to be my last creation before I go for my holidays but just couldn't resist making this one. I know I am so into Tilda that the thought of not doing any card or any other creation for 1 week is making me feel sad. But worry not I shall be back soon with much more to share with you all.

This project I made from the new Summer Memories collection and recycling one of the box that I got by purchasing a pair of Honeybee scissors. I didn't want to throw the packing so I thought to make something useful out of it. I made a memo and pen stand which can be given as a gift as well.

This is the box that I used



Here is the main view of the project.


 

 


Well I hope you like it

Case 1 Success Story !

Hi all

Its time to celebrate the success of CASE1 - Our first paper crafting exhibition in Bangalore organized by our Indian Craft Room. Thank you ICR, Thank you Ash (the administrator of ICR) and Thank you everyone for making CASE1 happen, Not just happen but supporting us in taking ICR further by a step.



ICR is definite that most Bangaloreans are appreciative of ICR and its crafters with their attempts in bumping the hearts through paper art.

Organizers are at talks with us to take up stalls around in Bangalore. Few others who were impressed with our works are contacting us with huge orders for favor boxes, invites & love cards, as of now. A local club has even gone to an extent of inviting us to take up a space at their club for demonstrating our works along with interactive activities for their members.

Here are the CASE1 pics –
