Take a Chill Pill ATCs!!




Hey guys.. This month over at Crazy about ATCs they had a super "cool " theme.. You had to create ATCs using the Cool colors on the color chart.. So fun!!

Blue is my fav color i am an Aquarian.. and water is my fav element even most of the clothes i buy are blue !!! Hence, i loved working with blue but, i added a a little bit of my vintage twist to my ATCs(as usual). here, i have actually used clothes tags for the base(so theres recycling for you). So, here they are my little beauties....


I layered first the novel page and then inked the edges with blue ink, it is so beautifully vintage and already distressed lol. I made a little paper pieced umbrella and i embellished it with little flowers i made by punching out and layering. I then popped pearls for the center and some velvet leaves.

For this one i layered some blue pastern paper and inked the edges. I used a little mask i bought form The Pie Lane Shop while i was in pune and used blue ink pad to get that look. I think it turned out super. For the flowers i punched out flowers from the novel page and and layerd them and added black pearls!! I added a little piece of ribbon i inked first using some black staple pins.

I hope whoever receives them enjoys them as much as i did making them. Thats all for now keep dropping by.

Hey guys.. it feels like its been a long time since my last post!! Actually i have so many projects going on at the same time i am super busy!! Its the story of every wife i guess lol!!

So today i want to share one of my latest projects with you guys!! It is an idea i had been toying with for a while now but never actually got around to really try it..But here i have a little more time on my hands and not to mention you get the best supplies for this thing.. so i couldn't help myself anymore---

So here it is TaaDaa!!!!



Aren't they just out of the world although i do say so myself. I always found hat pins so elegant and stylish and they make the projects look so chic!! They are so versatile you can use them anywhere . The best part about them is you can make them yourself with just a few supplies and they take virtually no time at all. And you can make them in any shape color size and with any variety of beads that you fancy and can get your hands on..

And here is how i made them

Supplies used:
1> 20 gauge wire
2> assorted beads
3> Glue
4> Wire Cutter




Hope you guys enjoyed the video.. Do give me feedbacks!!

Bird House Card


So, since i received so many wonderful comments and all the love from u guys for my window card i was inspired again to make another one on the same line using the same techniques.
This here is a little bird house card and guess what i will do a step by step video of how i made it . So, for those of u who are interested keep checking in i will upload it soon.

Here, is my card -


Istnt it cute although i do say so myself. I just love birdhouses and i knew i had to do one and its so easy as u all will see when i do the video. The dimension of the card is 5"x 6" and the card stock is white and so are the rest of the pieces of the fence and the bird house.
I have used foam tapes to create the layers. For the vines that you see i used this new product Paper cords that i just purchased and i love them they were perfect for the branch effect . I could have used wire but it would have made the card bulky.
I punched out the flowers , shaped them and layered 5 punches to create one flower. I added the leaves and the butterflies and viola!!!

The Challenges this card is gonna be up for
Gingerloft Challenge - Got the blues
Simon Says Challenge - Spring Colors
Flutter By Wednesday's - Open Challenge
The Shabby Tea Room - Spring color challenge

Hope you guys like my card. If u do do drop me some love . Its my motivation to do even better and better .

Wardrobe Birthday card!!


You all must have see this type of card.. i just liked the look of them a lot!! So, for my sister's birthday i decided to make this card. This is such a pretty card, and since my sister is very retro chic (no pinks for her) i thought the color was perfect. Here it is--



Its paper piecing again i dont know why lately i am totally into it. So, i drew a rough template free hand and then cut out the pieces with the pattern paper and use foam tape to add dimension. I added the LBD as my sis is the LBD kinda gurl! and the black clutch to match its so her.
I made the dress and the clutch he same way , i drew out the dress and cut t out of a black card-stock and then glued 1" black satin ribbon over it then added the black lace to make the skirt portion. I left the top as is. Added the cream ribbon around the waist to give it some shape and added the flower ( which is originally an earing).
For the clutch i cut out a lil' rectangle and added some foam tape to the front and then wrapped the satin ribbon around it. I then cut a 2 inch piece of the ribbon and folded one end like u make dog-ears to pages to get that triangle shape. And glued to the top to make a sort of flap and added the bling.
I also made the tiny metal hanger you see its pretty easy and actually takes a minute to make!! i promise i will show it to you all how i did it!!to finish the card i added some beads which actually luked like knobs i was very happy i had those in my stash.. And lastly stuck on the clutch and the LBD and it was done>

I am planning to put up this card for the following challenges


Hope you guys like my little card!!
ciao
Ash
