Guest Designing at Sunshine Creations :)

Hi Friends,
Today I am very happy to share with  you a card I have made for my GD spot at Sunshine Creations blog  run by a very talented young  Crafter Anushka ...She is only 11 years old and  her work is simply amazing ...I have come to admire  her so much for her ability to multi task so well at such an young age.... She seems to so effortlessly manage school ,crafting ,blogging and now even running her own challenges!! And I am quite proud to be selected as a guest designer at her blog  for this time's challenge which is Season's Greetings..And here's my take on this challenge :

         I have to add here that I am not very good at making cards without floral embellishments in any form and this theme  was a challenge for me ...But luckily the beautiful Pattern papers from the Webster's- A Botanical christmas  came to my rescue:)...Love the beautiful designs and die cuts in this collection....I just cut out the door and added a few pearls on the wreath plus some on the cream lace below to jazz it up ...And for the first time got to play with some Hero Arts stamp and Distress inks with which I have created the background design !!
Oh and I have to tell you guys that since I was also selected the random winner along with GD for Anushka's last challenge(fall /Thanksgiving ) ...I won some cute & lovely Inkadinkadoo stamps for it ...But the ever generous Piali also sent me some utterly gorgeous paper's,  ribbons & alphas too ...Thank you so much Anushka and Piali for your Generosity.. ...I simply Loved it :)
And I wanted to link up my this card  to Annette's My  Clever Creation Blog where she has a celebration on with a link up party ..Annette is a dear blogger friend and I Love her cute, adorable and of course clever work very much  :)

Two Cards and a Tag !

Hi friends,
How's everyone been. With the WCMD just gone, I am sure many of you must have created a lot of lovely stuff :) So today I am sharing with you 2 cards. I have made one card for the WCMD Challenge which I have shared on FB as well and another recent card and a tag too. So here's a picture of each of them :-

Well, this card I have already shared on Facebook and I have made it to play along with Let's Get Trendy Now - 2. This is entered for the Day Four- Die Cuts /Punches Challenge      

The second card :-

And this card is also entered for the Let's Get Trendy Now - Day 2- Household Supplies - I have used tissue paper to make this rosette and what's more, I am sharing a short tutorial on how I made it...But as you know, tutorials are picture heavy so here goes...Please bear with me :)                              
For the supplies, I have taken a tissue paper with a nice background design, a masking tape, a piece of white cardstock and the usual scissors, glue and a Scoring Board.

Step 1 : Stick the masking tape over the tissue paper on an entire length. Mine came approximately 12 inches and I then cut out the masking tape on the both sides keeping the tissue paper below. You will notice a nice design will emerge through the transparency of the tape.
Step 2 : After cutting out the tape, take a long white cardstock and glue the masking tape to it with the tissue side facing down.

Step 3 :  It will look like this after it's glued and cut.  
Step 4 : Using a Scoring Board, start scoring lines every quarter inch along the tape.

This is how it will look after its done. And for those of you who want to know the complete instructions on how to make this flower, you can check it out on YouTube HERE

And now the tag :-
I am entering this tag for the Lets Get Trendy Now 2 - Day One Washi Tape. I have used faux washi. That is, I have stamped on the masking tape to create this look

Hope you all like my work. But as you can see, this is a long post so I am not listing the supplies used here. But if you have any queries regarding any products, just leave me a comment and I will definitely get back to you :)          

Challenges entered :
1. Sir Stampalot Challenge : Punch away.
2. Unstampabelles : Recycling or Repurposing : Made flower with tissue paper on my second card.
3. The Craft Place : Make your own background (stamped lace background on the first card)
4. Sentimental Sunday's : Anything Goes

Take care and have a nice day everyone :)
