I have been super busy for a while, and not been able to craft because of that. My little brother is going to the US for post graduation next month, so I wanted to have a bunch of cards/notes that I could give him before he leaves.
This is the first among them. The card was inspired by
Here’s my take on the above runway model.
The base is Hero Arts Black Cardstock. I did partial die-cutting technique that I used here, to cut out the word “Congrats” from HA Wet Cement CS. Cut it out on an angle and layered it with a piece of Neelgagan White CS. I drew rough sketches of feathers, and fussy cut them. One of the feather was fussy cut from HA tide Pool, and the other two are again Neelgagan white. I colored them in Neon Pink and Neon Yellow using my HA sponge daubers. I mounted the feathers using heavy-duty foam tape. I then added a HA black button, and some Hemptique twine to finish off the card.
Sorry for the very poor photography skills :(.
Thanks for visiting my blog. If you would like to play along visit RIC. Have a happy December!

It’s been a very long time since I crafted or even touched my craft supplies. Sigh. Life is becoming a bit busy. But I hope to catch up of a lot of crafting since my dear hussie is out of town for this weekend.
So, I am back to playing one of my favorite challenges – The 10 minute craft dash #30. Here is the challenge graphic.
And here is my card.
I tried faux letterpress for the first time ever since I saw PJ from BGC do it in one of her cards. It looks so beautiful in person, and the PTI harvest gold ink gave so much even coverage. I am impressed! See the Blue twine? That’s an improvisation I just stained a Hemptique twine in Blueberry sky beforehand (before I started the timer) The Wplus9 pinking square was cut out from a Pinking-Magenta PP from DCWV. I finally glued a few buttons from Itsy Bitsy.
I kinda have a mixed feeling about this card. Not really too impressed with myself. Hmm.. Guess I am a bit rusty. I also have awful photography skills! Perhaps its just the too-bright-paint in the background. So, I really did not want to put this card up on my blog. AT ALL. But then, I realized Paulina from Pretty Pink Posh was kinda worried that the numbers have gone down for challenge submissions. So, I am submitting it anyway
I would love it if you join the craft dash too. Because I think that it is a really unique challenge, and I would be really bummed if she stops hosting the craft dash because of low turn out.
There is also an awesome sponsor for the challenge – Uniko Studios. If you haven’t come across them then check them out, they are a fun gang. I have a few of their stamp sets on my never ending wishlist. Sigh (again)
Anyway, I have ordered some crafty stuff after 2 months or so. Any guesses? PTI! Yay! I am so addicted to PTI stuff. Leigh, you are to blame

Its been quite a while since I posted something here. Finally found some time for crafting And I made a card for one of my most favourite challenges – The 10 minute Craft Dash.
Here’s the color palette
Took a Cream Cardstock, and mounted the aqua(I did not have the exact colour) pattern paper. Stamped the flower in Pure Poppy on a white cardstock, and then masked the flower with another piece in the exact shape. Stamped my leaves in Simply chartreuse and fussy cut the entire thing. Stamped my sentiment in a strip of cream cardstock, and placed it over the aqua PP, and then mounted the focal image with heavy duty foam tape. Finally went around with my black felt tip pen for faux-stitching.
Here’s my card.
Time to Finish – 8:46
