Masculine card

Hey peeps !!
I know its been a few weeks !
But this time around its been really busy here !
I have a huge amt of customized wedding cards to be done
Plus a whole lot of gift Tags.
I also am working on an album side by side ! 
imagine my days :P and nights .... 
But none the less !I still made time to make a few cards here and there!
Here is another masculine card i made recently 

I think the message is clear . 
The compass is to guide the person along , the jute to help him climb higher ! 
and the cam suggests to capture each moment of the journey he takes :) 
Hope u like it !

Palette full of Contrast !

*This is a sticky post , for new creations pls scroll down !*

(This post was originally posted on -4th june 2012)
Hello readers! Bonjour!! 
Today i have another post to share with u all. 
 we are playing for a palette this fortnight over @ Beyond Grey Challenges   
So here it is - 
we want to see how daring you all can get with this contrasting palette! 
 Use the above colors in a card / crafty project or a scrapbook page !

Our challenge wouldn't be the same without our amazing sponsors :
Di's Digi Downloads..

Lets see what Di - shop owner & illustrator has to say about her journey- 
"I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!
That does sound like a story in itself ! thanks di ! we love ur work keep up the good work !

Now time for my creation for the challenge 
Here is what i came up with !
 A close up of the dry embossing done (with Sizzix Embossing folder- Dress Form Set
on my Echo park design paper 
I used some Dry Colors (other wise called Chalk colors )
on my sanded and embossed motif
Thats a technique i use to make the motif visible through the patterned paper. 
 I think it looks absolutely amazing ! 
I often use an eraser to erase any excess color that might have been spread around.
 The button is a chipboard button hand sewed and colored. 
 Some more embossing ! 
I think with Sizzix I have found the embosser in me ! (Dreamy eyed !)
 The flowers are absolutely handmade.
Except the mulberry roses ! :) 
Hope u enjoyed this post and will play with us :)

Sea themed - masculine card

Hello readers ! welcome again :) 
we have a beach / sea theme going on@ Beyond Grey Challenges
all u have to do is - 
Create a Card / Layout / a crafty or a sewy project 
with any hint of Sea or Beaches.

anything goes as long as its beachy or sea related.
Today i have a Sea themed masculine card for u!  
(Yeah i know photography has lilies in the background :P :P But spare that !)
 I also have an *Embossing Trick * to share with u all 
I embossed and created my own vintage paper :) 
want to know how ? follow me !
first i dipped a tea bag + some loose tea in a cup of warm water!
 (yes makes some lovely tea) 
Then with a big paint brush i painted the whole thing with tea water 
Gives the vintage paper feel.  Easy ??
Here comes the fun part ! 
this is a trick that colors your paper while u emboss !
All u have to do is, choose which side to add pigment colors to ,
 {you can use your tim holtz distress ink pads too (any pigment colors will do) }
once chosen , well have fun coloring !! 
Run it through your die cut & embossing machine and this is what u get !
I wanted it to be vintage and shabby so i didn't bother to wipe 
the excess ink from the pad before embossing.
The embossing pad i have used here is- Sizzix Embossing Folder- Clocks & Print Blocks
And this is the Sizzix Sizzlits - Washer Border
That i have used just for fun :)
I used the Sizzix Decorative Strip- Paper Rosette  on yellow paper .
And believe me ... making paper rosettes was never so easy !! thanks to tim holtz!!
with some stamped images & sentiment from Pink paislee. 
Finally some glittered chipboard letters by the girls paperie. 
If your wondering what the number 25 means , well its a beach themed birthday card
for someone :)
thankyou so much for joining me here again :) 
Good day folks !! 
DO PLAY with us ! :)
