Hello dear bloggers,
Here is a card I have put together for CAS(E) this Sketch very similar to the one I posted a few days ago. The squares were die cut in a lopsided manner to make them look unusual before the water colour paper was coloured with water colour pencils. I tried to obtain an effect similar to cling wrap but this is what I got. I did not want to throw anything away so every single square was used - positive and negative. The black sentiment was die cut from a fancy real estate brochure.

I will submit this card for the following challenges:

10 years of blogging and a happy card to celebrate

Image
Dear lovely bloggers,
Honestly, it is a long, long time since I have expressed gratitude to my blog and you lovely souls who come and visit me, leaving such beautiful words for me. Thank you for it means the world to me. It makes up for so much else, you know.  I remember when I was just two-three-four years into blogging, I used to consistently express my gratitude but over the years it became a thing of the past. 
I have completed 10 years of blogging this year in May and it all started when my dad passed away in 2010 and a close friend suggested that I start something related to writing. Blogging about my cards is what I could think of. My cards were so, so, so simple in them days and I am still learning so much from all of you. Yet I feel I have come quite a long way. 
Thank you so much for all your help and support in every which way. I still have the supplies you sent me since some of you sent me a lifetime of them. Papers, stamps, embellies, paper cutter, your name it and I ha…

Water colour squares

Image
Hello dear bloggers,
I hope you are staying healthy and happy where ever you are. Here is my card to show you today. The shades of green were achieved with cling wrap and water colour pencils on water colour paper.  This is a pretty self explanatory card as you can see.  The smile is die cut with a rhinestone on the dot.  The brain behind this whole design was Aleeza and I am glad that I remembered to own that up. Lol.

Hello dear bloggers,
Here is my card to show you today which was made a few weeks ago. The big tag has been recycled and I have stuck a tiny store bought tag on it after colouring it with Staedler markers. At the bottom of the recycled tag, colourful washi tag was used to add intensity of colour.  Matching embroidery yarn was used to bring in more colour. The background has been made from strips of paper - it is quite a thing to stick these slim strips of paper yet there is something very calming about it.

My new horse die

Image
Hello dear bloggers,
Here is a card made with the new horse die that has been lying with me since last November. I finally realized that the best way was to use black paper. Underneath is a little shadow of kraft which is what I used earlier to die cut the horse. It lay around for months and finally black it was. Washi tape from my stock was used to match the kraft die cut and I think it somehow it manages to match with the black die cut. I would be more than happy to receive tips on how to use this die which I picked up on ebay most excited.

Masculine card

Image
Hello peeps,
If you recall, a few weeks ago I made a card with a patisserie packaging for women. Here is the rest of the packaging and it is just right for a masculine card. I have done the red layer with my Prismas. I am fairly pleased with it. I hope you like it, too.

Another one for Less is More

Image
Hello dear bloggers,
Thank you for your kind comments on my totally recycled card. Somehow to me my recycled cards are more precious than the ones I make with commercial material so I NEVER give them away. Well, that is me. Lol.
This card has been created for both Less is More and CAS(E) this Sketch. The pearlized paper was bought at Paddy's market in Sydney which we visited  some 15 years ago for the first time.  The butterflies have been die cut from a hammered paper that is used for making visiting cards. Obviously, when I put the paper in Cuttlebug, it got totally flattened out and the texture went out of the window.


Below is a closeup of the card...

100% recycled

Image
Hello sweet bloggers,
I have been thinking of how I can extend my love of making cards out of recycled materials for a couple of years now. This card is one hundred percent recycled. I found a brochure outside an art museum in Kyoto, Japan with details of an art exhibition. I know what happens to such brochures after the event is over. So I confidently picked up a few and carried back them more safely than I would a baby. Lol. 
 The kraft paper that I have here for the cardstock was a thick brown paper carrier bag from a store. This is the result. Simple yet quite pretty I thought. Coming back to the image, we visited Kyoto to see the cherry blossoms hence you see them here. 
I also have to give credit to a friend called Natalie who challenged me to make a card that was totally recycled.

Celebrate

Image
Hello sweet peeps,
I had this image stamped with Stazon and coloured in with Prisma pencils from many years ago. Now,  I know you will be patient and bear with me as to the name of the rubber stamp. It is in my art room, somewhere in a drawer and I am just too comfortable right now in another room on a big chair to bother getting up to find out the details. You get the picture, don't you? I have done this in the past as well. Lol. I have gone over the image with Sakura gel pens and the image looks really nice in real life.
I have made this card for the challenge over at CAS(E) this Sketch . I love CAS anyway so this was perfect for me.



 This is a close-up of the sparkle... much better in real life.

For Less is More - white and cream

Image
Hello bloggers,
Here is a card I actually made for Less is More which is about using white and cream. I have used a one piece die cut I bought many years ago in Jakarta, Indonesia while we lived there. It seems so long ago. It was 2014 when we left Jakarta for Singapore.  I like the simple turn out of this card.

Recycled from a wedding card

Image
Hello dear bloggers,
This card below was made from a wedding card. Yes, the wedding was in Portugal and indeed it was a treat to visit this beautiful country with a rich history and such loving people. The wedding card paper is pearlised and very beautiful. On the sides, I have used washi tape which I bought from Hokkaido in Japan last summer. Now the question is who could this card be sent out to?

Hello sweet bloggers,
Here is another card to show you with strips of paper. The white strips are the leftover pieces of cardstock while the coloured strips are leftovers of watercolour paper that I had smooshed. I coloured the sentiment with Pentel watercolour tubes.

Partly recycled - black and white with red

Image
Hello dear bloggers,
Here is a card that was made with a cake box from Brunetti, which is a patisserie walking distance from our place. We bought my fave Tiramisu while the girls got their non-flour almond chocolate cake. The box had the image you can see below and it was too pretty to be binned so here is what I did. The red layer at the bottom was cardstock that I coloured in with a Prisma pencil. I only coloured the edges after estimating how much red needed to be seen. I have to say I find this an easy way of adding a layer or an edge.  The crocodile textured background is a lovely paper that came from Skye in Australia, a year or two ago.

Hello lovely angels,
Here is a super CAS card I made yesterday and it was designed by older one. These oval nesties were just lying around on my table.   We were talking of the time when she was all of four and how she would design the layout of my cards before she left for school and I would make them exactly the way she left them. The conversation landed in this sweet card. I added rhinestones which I am not sure about. The thank you was diecut from a scrap piece of paper which was part of a pamphlet.

Hello sweet peeps,
Here is my card to show you today. It has been made with fancy gift wrap that I bought in Sydney many, many years ago from a very unique store that sold home crafted art objects. Some ribbon and an oval nestie with a sentiment from Hero Arts and yes - my card was all dressed up.

Fancy gift wrap plus embossed

Image
Hello dear bloggers,
Here is a card I have made out of fancy gift wrap which has been lying with me since Zeenya was three and now she is 20. I stuck it on thicker card stock and let an embossing folder go over it. It looks quite shiny and nice in real life. All these cards are being added to my collection of cards to sell for the shelter that houses abused women.

Wedding card

Image
Hello dear bloggers,
Here is a card with almost no story to tell. I have used this stamp over and over again and seem to love it more and more with the passage of time. The flowers came as a long ribbon and I cut them carefully so that the joints were totally invisible. Embossing, stamping, flowers and a couple of pearls on the flower centres and my card was ready.

Happy Birthday

Image
Hello dear bloggers,
This card was made with a stamp I bought a very sweet little scrapbooking store in Shrewsbury in the UK many years ago. It can be quite challenging to stamp all of it in one go for some reason. The good side is that if it does do a good job, the entire card is ready in no time.  I have used a Brilliance blue pearlised ink and have gone over the hibiscus flowers with glossy accents.  A Sakura silver gel pens were used on a few 'happy birthdays' for added effect as was the blue ribbon. It looks far more sparkly in real life.
It is old fashioned but pleasing to the eyes with the monochromes.

Happy Birthday tag on a card

Image
Hello lovely bloggers,
Here is my card which I finally managed to put together after much rumination. The tag is recycled and I actually took a picture to show you this time. So you know I am genuine. Lol.
Some of my fave washi tapes went around the back of the tag and a black ribbon on top.  I embossed the card stock under the tag and stuck the tag with foam tape since I am a bit done with cutting cardboard and sticking it on either side. 
If I may say so, I quite like the way this card turned out. 


Down below is the tag with a faint shadow for which I apologise.

Partly recycled / Froggie says thanks

Image
Hello dear bloggers,
I had extra leaves die cut from the packaging of a bottle of perfume and this frog was lying handy on my art table. It does seem too green but I just put them together. The sentiment has also been die cut from some packaging. The butterfly (die cut from a pamphlet from the Japanese embassy)  is a leftover from a card I made some days ago.
I think I should rename my blog and call it something similar to, "The Charity Recycling Queen".

Partly recycled and homemade embossing paste

Image
Hello dear bloggers,
I keep hoping that this virus will leave us sooner than it came. So this card is a tribute to it in advance. I hope this lockdown results in an open up and we find the key to our freedom. All puns intended in the hope of reality.
I have used my homemade embossing paste and a die cut lock and key from a die set. A brochure has been used to cut the dies.

Recycled card for a man

Image
Hello dear bloggers,
Here is a masculine card to show you which has been lying on my art table for the longest time. 
I wanted a sentiment for it and finally decided to handwrite it except that that exercise had to be repeated because the first time around the sentiment was written upside down. I had to handwrite it all over again and stick it over the previous one.  The gold cogs were cut of Ferraro Rocher chocolate wrappers and the brown background was achieved with a Basic acrylic paint tube.  The brown paper was embossed and the leftover circles from the diecut cogs were used to fill up the embossed cogs.

Sparkle!!!

Hi bloggers,
Here is a card that is partly recycled yet again. I have used a very old piece of wallpaper sample (19 years and over if you want to know) to die cut the butterflies.  Over the butterflies, a Sakura gel pen was used to give a special effect.  I had to cover a faux pas hence the rose gold washi tape (bought from Typo - an Australian stationery chain of stores that is much loved by teens). The sentiment is also a washi tape.

Partly recycled/ Dream

Image
Hello dear bloggers,
Here is my card to show you today which is partially recycled. The background has been made with sparkly Camlin pastel crayons and it looks quite pretty in real life. This is the best I could get with the camera. The rose has been die cut from an Altenew die and I have used watercolour paper to cut it. I have used Camlin brush markers and an acetate sheet to achieve this effect on the roses. One of the layers had a coating of glitter glue and I chose to go for it.   The green leaves have been die cut from the packaging of an old perfume bottle. It is a form of pearlized pistachio or something similar. The sentiment is a washi tape, which I simply love.

Recycled thank you

Image
Hello bloggers,
Here is a card I made a few days ago with a cupcake box. Their cupcakes are the most delicious to say the least and I have collected a serious number of boxes. So you may see plenty of it in the coming days. Lol.  The black paper is also from an old file that belonged to Aleeza so this card is pretty much recycled.
I have used a die that I ordered from ebay a few months ago for the nesties. I have used them earlier and quite like it.  The thank you sentiment has been cut from a card stock. I know I use it often which bears testimony to the fact that I LOVE it.

Hello dear bloggers,
Here is a card I made a few weeks ago with a rubber stamp I bought in 2017 from the US. I took two-three stamp pads for more effect and went over them with Sakura gold pens. The gold cord on the side is from my stash. Both my girls felt that this card needed more zing, so I thought of the cord. The sentiment is handwritten.

Down is a closeup of the gold touches on the leaves. Looks quite nice to be honest.

Wedding card

Image
Hello dear bloggers,
Here is a card to show you made with a die I purchased on ebay a few months ago. I have used pearlised paper to cut the flowers. Wink of Stella was used to make it more sparkly and I think it would make a sweet wedding card. 
I am not a big fan of the sentiment, 'best wishes' but it was lying on my table so off I went with it.


Down below is a close up of the flowers with Wink of Stella - she is one of my bestest friends.

Choose joy

Hello bloggers,
This is a plaque that I made with a stencil. The stencil paste was made at home with baking powder, talcum powder, glue and water. When the paste dried up, it appeared peach in colour so I used my Sakura gold gel pen to go over it. I do like the texture of the paste. Very 3D.
I mounted it on an old wedding card to give it more depth and character. This wedding was a very special one. It was a Dutchman who married an Indonesian girl after he lost both his legs in a bomb blast in Marriot Hotel, Jakarta, Indonesia. What struck me most was how his enthusiasm and inspiration to carry on seemed to get stronger. His mum and dad were present and their smiles were full of love and endurance.



Down below is the plaque without the recycled mount.

Hello sweet peeps,
I made this card a few years ago, maybe in 2018 when Zeenya my older one graduated from school.  I don't think I have posted this one so far. I really like the way it turned out.  This is my fave feather die and I have used the famous smoosh technique with water colours here. The sequins are from my stash. I bought them when we lived in Mumbai, from a tiny little craft shop that had the sweetest craft supplies.

Hello dear bloggers,
Here is a card that my mum made. She hand drew it and coloured it with markers. I went over the image and flowers with glitter and it looks quite bright and sparkly in real life.  All I did was stamp the sentiment and put washi tape on the right to cover some faux pas. Bright and cheerful and may it bring joy to our lives very soon.

Hello dear bloggers,
I had embossed this card stock many years ago and it lay with me patiently waiting to get a better life. I stuck three satin roses from Japan and a ribbon after stamping the sentiment and that was it. Of course I had to go over some parts of the sentiment with a black Copics marker to cover up some parts of the stamp. I have no idea why I punched the bottom of the card!

Partly recycled masculine card

Hello dear bloggers,
Here is my card to show you today for which is an ideal card for a man.  The tools have been die cut using foil from Ferraro Rocher chocolates.  The matt gold paper you see at the bottom of the tools is from a brochure from Singapore Airlines.
