This and that....

Hello there,
Here are a few simple cards I created yesterday to get myself back in the crafty groove...

This one follows the gorgeous Kazan's 2S4Y sketch (#51).... I think she'll faint seeing such an interpretation of her beautiful sketch..LOL!! Anyway... the image is a digi image from Birds cards. Love her very usable images. The ribbon treatment has another story. I learnt it from mom and though I haven't perfected it yet, I hope to work on it and get it right. Not visible clearly in the picture but the ruffles look gorgeous if done right. I'd done this flower earlier too and I love how I can add some texture and elegance to a plain foam flower.

This one is a simple notecard made from scraps of CS left after making the previous card:

I bought loads of these flowers on a recent shopping spree. Kind of find them useful.

The next two cards are just trial cards... I wanted to try the gorgeous bows from the Just Add Ink tutorials. I had to tweak it a bit based on my button type... liked it though.

All the embossing is Cuttlebug; the ribbons are from my stash; ink from Hobby Ideas; stamps are Stampin' Up; buttons from stash.



  1. Hi Smita, your cards are just beautiful..With your MS punches try cuting your CS at 3.25x 3.25, 5 x 5, 6.75 x 675,8.5 x 8.5, 10.25x 10.25 and 12 x 12.Start with the coner punch first, then change to the border one, for down the sides.. Hope this helps..
    Hugs, Linda

  2. I love the cards, very pretty, I can't make clean and simple cards...always place a lot more on the card...
    Have a wonderful day!
