Love Holds A Rainbow!


For July ICR has taken a pause with its monthly CoasteRide Challenge...
But nevertheless, it still has its creative inkling for this month by means of Tutorials... (Tut)
There had been a Tutorial posted by Priyanka Mathur at the beginning of the month & here is the second part to the something we have called as
CoasteRide Jul-torials!
 My tutorial for today is A Rainbow Colored Card!

  Am not very good with colors... As in, My mind & fingers do not sync in well to play with colors.... which makes me fear of me messing up the already existing idea on the canvas... Saying so I still tried a Rainbow Card for my tutorial today... 

The card was inspired by the Sketch from Freshly Made Sketches....  

The card here on the show is based 4" X 6" ... That's the standard size I like to play with regularly.... 
  • Cut Your Card Base the size you are comfortable with & keep it aside...

  • Stamp an image (outlined image only so to add in colors later)of your choice on a piece of Cardstock which would be die cut with the complimenting die, with embossing ink & heat emboss it with white embossing powder... I used the Altenew Persian Motifs!
  • On another cardstock piece which would be used for layering, of a color of your choice; I chose black though the water colors do not show really well on black... I stamped the petals stamp & heat embossed them with white embossing powder...
  • Now playing with the watercolors of your choice fill in the embossed outline image with rainbow colors toned up or down to meet your requirement for the outcome...
  • With the complimenting die, die cut the image out after the colors have dried...
  • The layering cardstock with the embossed images would be water colored with your tone of rainbow colors....
  • Once you are ready with the basic ingredients for your card, its time to put them together to shape up your project... {I preferred to layer it from within which wanted me to cut out a coordinating open on my card base & I then layered the cardstock on the inside of the card facing the card front}
  • Once you close the card base the embossed layer shows up through the die cut space... 
  • You may go ahead & embellish the card as you may choose to... {I wanted a lil more of the rainbow colors on my card; hence opted to dab them out on my card front for which I used the positive of a stitched rectangle set from Cottage Cutz... I placed it on the layered front open face down.}

  • I then went on a color dabbing spree with a not so thick paint brush as I wanted tiny dots of rainbow colors only
  • Once done I removed the masked layer & added another layer for a frame, die cut with the Stitched rectangle Die....
  • I printed out my own sentiment & pinned it up to the die cut motif & glued them down on the card base with few pop dots from Itsy Bitsy...
Now there goes my Rainbow Colored Card for the CoateRide Jul-Torial!
Hope to have you play with us....

LOVE - Is All We Want!


ICR saw its second CoasteRide with the month of February;
And its a Valentine Project that is called for & of course with a simple twist of giving the project a dimension.... And We all love doing that especially in the month of Feb on the occasion of Valentine's Day!

So I made one too.... A simple valentine card for hubby who is away from me as of now...
And replicated another to gift it to my KJ's Wife!

So here is what I made....

CS for the base is Fabriano in grey.....
On that layered a piece of Fabriano n pink with a DP from stash layered above....
Ran it thru the CuttleBug with Itsy bitsy Heart die cut to cut out a portion of the layer a lil heartless...
And then placed another fully fledged cut heart to add in as a dimension popped up with a pop dot & foam tape....
On the heart shape I stamped with a Stampin' Up! design in darker shade of yellow... Partially stamped to give it a subtle feel to it....
For the sentiment I stamped "All You Need Is Love" from Keiser Craft Lover Collection....
Dashed in some small rhinestones all arnd to finish the project....

Looking at what I made, my domestic help requested, something be made for her too to be given to her man... I obliged & made a quickie with the die cut heart that was arnd & finished it with a dash of rhinestones arnd..... She left home all happy..... I smiled with this feel of content for I mad made my Valentine's day a happy one by spreading a smile.....

Of course I then went saloning...... shopping...... SINGING...... & back home!

Do chime in with your projects too before it ends by midnight of Feb 28th;

The CS for base is from Fabriano in chocolate brown....

I printed the Senti Pun on it.... BUTTER FRY!
Fussy cut a hand drawn pan handle & popped it up beneath the circle die cut to create the
look of a fry pan & doodled the stitch marks with black steadler pen
Die cut the butterfly using Tim Holtz Thinlits; Further colored it & halved only to give the senti pun a dimension & of course adding an overall dimension to the project...
Added a thin cut DP in purple for the strip layer;
Used the WeRMemories Die & Stamp for the sentiment HAPPY....
And over the Itsy Bitsy Tag die cut doodled the word Day to complete the BIRTHDAY CARD with a new perception;

Am just thankful to all those people who make my life seem blessed & happening!!!!

TIME FLIES.... Planner/Calendar!


Wishing everyone A Very Happy New Year..... :)

Well... On ICR was the time for a new coasteride... ICRCJan17 - Customize A Calendar!

An interesting one & U must check it out to give it a try.... Below is the story board for u....

And with me living by myself & taking care of my day to day stuffs myself which was forever taken care of by my husband, I am in need of an organizer to keep a track of things I need to do; It was easier when he took care of every damn thing & now to be done by me is exciting as well as a challenge for someone who never did anything..... All Thanks to him; Of course I wudnt have been able to get to this without his support.... So am loving & living this part <3 p="">
With the start of a New Year I had to put together a planner/calendar to keep my life in track so I did not miss on things which shud mean additional headache for my husband.... :P

With this ICR CoasteRide, I had to give it a go... And this is what i cud cook up in a jiffy!

My Brother helped me by designing the calendar for me which is but obvious the main for this project....

 photo 3_zpsfc1t3ekm.jpg

He then added in all those frames that I wanted on my planner..... Which has.....
On the Front.....
  • To Buy/Order
  • Awaiting On
  • Notes
  • Unfinished Tasks 
 photo 4_zpsxwq1ki6g.jpg

 At The Back.....

  • Priorities
  • Personal Tasks
  • Outdoor Tasks
  • Projects/Ideas
 <3 p="">And I just worked up on the rest putting them all into their place.....

<3 p="">Few things just dont end up the way they start & this planner was one among them..... I initially started with a folder kind of thing for my pages but unfortunately it did not work out well.... I had to leave that thing just there & start afresh with something simpler; When you begin with no experience you definitely not sure where you would end up in the go....

<3 p="">I then thought I wud just make folders for every monthly page with pockets which could help me tuck in stuffs as my bills & acknowledgements.....

<3 p="">After which I made the covers to hold my entire set up & ringed them with the binder rings I had since ages.... Was happy to have been bringing them into use finally :D

<3 p="">I then neatly put in all the folders & pages to accommodate all the months & realized I fell short of one folder for a month.... I had no more patience left to make another one hence tucked it into an already existing month.... :P

<3 p="">{At d least I know where I went wrong with few things in the process}
<3 p="">If I did not try I wud never know until I die!

 photo close_zpswpd8dqi0.jpg
<3 p="">
For the locking system I used a strong button used on the denims & made use of the thin elastic twine I had in stash.... And VOILA! I was done...... :D

<3 p="">
<3 p="">It was time to put away all my other stuffs I used to jot down the routine & start using it....
<3 p="">
<3 p="">However, Just to share..... I had placed an order on etsy for a planner/calendar for a cost of Rs.4000/- even before I tried this..... What a waste! Anyways... Nothing new... Am popularly known to be one too.... :(
<3 p="">
<3 p=""><3 p="">So that's about my project for the January CoasteRide on ICR..... You may have your too... Bring them on & link it to the inlinkz right below the discussion of this ride at the ICR Forum.... Have Fun!
