Thank you notes and cards

Image
Hello everyone..

How's the mid week treating you? I have been super busy creating thank you notes for my professors at IIM Lucknow.



The thank you notes are for on the behalf of my class. For which I stamped the Thank you, did some brush lettering for the names of the professors and some normal hand lettering for the note.

I also wanted to give cards to few of my favourite professors and was thinking of a way to quickly mass produce. I had bought a really cheap stencil from my local stationery and wanted to try it too. So I used Faber Castell's Glass bead glitter gel for it.  Kept it to dry over night and attached a Thank you white embossed sentiment on a foam tape over the edge of the motifs. Put some more bling with sequins.



I chose black cardstock for this because in the previous card where I used this bead gel it didn't stand out!



The weird angles are to show you the lovely glittery effect. Hope you like my effort. 

White Lily - CIC 440

Hello everyone,

This fortnight we have a new challenge for you at Cupcake inspiration challenges. It's a White out - Colour challenge. Oh I love colours and to think of having just white, was a little intimidating but I LOVE challenges, don't you?

I had my Uniko Lily stamp out, because of my previous card and this year's resolution of atleast making two card with one set before putting it back, made me use this flower. And white + lily = Sympathy card. Though I hope I never get to use it!



I used white embossing powder for heat embossing the lovely lily. I stamped two images, cut them around the edges and stuck few petals on top of each other. The background is inspired by Yana Smakula's card that I saw a couple of months back. And I had been waiting to create the similar bg. What had been stopping me was, that I don't have a scoring pad. So I did some measurements and scored the lines using the groove of my paper trimmer and used nuvo drops to get the quilted look…

Birthday wishes for my brave bear

Hello everyone,

I am looking forward to a productive weekend this time and lots of time to play with my kid too, now that all my exams are over! Yayy! My brother's birthday is approaching and I wanted to make a card for him. And Tracey's card at Muse card club was a perfect inspiration. My brother who's part of the Indian Army is combating infiltrators who sneak into the country to spread terror. He's positioned in the Himalayas and the rough terrain and harsh weather is what they face everyday. To us it's a picturesque view with mountains and snow fall.

I used the bear image from Jane's doodles  and as my water colours were out due to my previous card.. I gave the snow fall background with some emboss resist.. a die cut to show my bear in the snow and here are my wishes.





Here's my little brother who's no more any little..   posing in the snowfall with the mighty Himalayan backdrop.

Hope you like it!
