A birthday card for Mom !

Hey guys !
How have u been ? 
Well since its pretty cold here on my side of the planet so i was down with flu :( 
and it just didn't let me craft or post anything 
So finally i found a lil energy to sit up straight (rolling eyes)
Okay so this is a card i made recently for my mom for her bday :) 

Well i always wanted to do the embossed female Face :) 
Seemed very apt here. 
Im not sure why but i was sort of fixated on keeping the female black and shadowy
After embossing i painted her jet black in acrylic colors for the figure to show off more.
The flowers are handmade :) Love the pink , it sort of brought life to the vintagey frame. 
The flourish is made on pie lane wood free silk paper (Lovee the fresh green)
And i think we can never go wrong with pearls !!
This lil dragon fly here (which more aptly looks like a baby butterfly)
Ahh i am in love with them....
Now the embossed frame ... well its done with
Thats a set i really love , its got this full size frame , and a fitting female face silhouette
  I enjoy creating with this one ! :) 
I used some distress ink to give it a lil color but dint want it to be too over powering! 

Well this is how the inside looks like :)
The stamped sentiment is from  8"x8" Clear Stamps - Laugh With Me 
I lovee the luxurious feel to it :)
There look at the Beautiful flawless embossing ..... so amazing :) 
And oh yeah ! i saved the best to the last ! 
I sort of wanted to fill those lil corners with something ,i just didnt know what 
and out of blues i just pored in some modge podge and some glitter balls by pie lane
they sort of are stuck for life :D 
but mom loved em ! :)

 So hope u enjoyed the post ! 
Cant wait to hear your comments :)

No stamping card with sizzix

*picture heavy post*
Okay its time for my inspiration for the next challenge over @Beyond Grey
we are playing another great challenge this time around which was Mel's idea 
She dared us (the stamp loving people , herself included) to
 make a card or a layout without any
 STAMPING or DIGI IMAGES only sentiments allowed.
So basically it was a tough task !! 
I thought if no stamps then i will need to get down to some diecutting !
believe me i tried a few combinations but i thought a "Love" card should do 
this time :)  Also i didnt want it to be a regular square or rectangular card , 
wanted to try a new fold but i have done quite a few easels. 
I had recently heard about a "Flip it card " which seemed like
a cool option to try on , and the fold looked pretty fancy to me :)  

which was my inspiration , i don't have this die , but its a real tease ! 
i would surely get one for myself ! 
Okay coming back to the actual card, i tried making the handmade flip it card in 
a circular central piece. sizzix also has the same one i attempted . 
so here is my card. 

View from the top
 The window :)

This is basically the front of the card when its fold is opened. 

from the other side

 the white curls are totally handmade ! 
it was scrap but then i realized they look amazing ! 
So i made some more with the same technique and tada ! i have a whole lot of curls ! :)
 I love the MFT die - leafy flourish , used some pielane wood free silk paper for the cutting 
love the bright green they offer. 
 the sentiment and the bird are from Sizzix Sizzlits Die Set 3PK - Card Phrases Set #2 
Love this die ... :) 
It will soon be available with the local retailers :) 
Hope u loved my card and will join us @  Beyond Grey Challenges
to play the NO STAMPING NO DIGI IMAGE challenge !
ciao ! until next time!
