Baby Announement/ Baby shower money envelopes

Hello guys
Today I am going to share one of my recent custom orders with you. I have made 100 of these envelopes for a dear client for her baby announcement function.....since the gender was not known, I made pink and blue envelopes. these were super fun to make but a little time consuming as well.
These envelopes are 7"by 3.5"in size and can fit a Rs 2000 not comfortably inside the pocket and the pocket is 1.5" in breadth.

So I have used Fabriano Elle Erre cardstock in Celeste and Rosa as the base of my envelopes. For the front panel and inside pocket of the envelope, I have used white cardstock
(250gsm from ItsyBitsy) which I have dry embossed with ItsyBitsy embossing folder and then highlighted it with Distress inks in Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass also from the store.

To decorate the front of the envelope, I have added a strip of Fabriano cardstock in Fucsia and Azzurro and and layers of diecuts ( Spellbinder and sizzix) and finished it with wooden baby embellishments. I finished it with some butterfly diecuts from Memory Box and MFT flourishes.
I have given ribbon closure for the envelope (satin ribbons in solid and polka dotted).
That's all from me today....Thank you for stopping by. Hope you have a great week ahead.

Thanks (Fall inspired thank you card)

Hello guys
I have a card to share with you all today....this is a Thank you card keeping the upcoming Thanksgiving in mind. I have made this card as a DT inspiration for Lets Craft and Create Blog where the theme this month is ANYTHING GOES + option FALL COLOURS/THANKFUL. Below is my take on this fun theme...... To participate in the on going challenge, please click HERE
I am putting my card up at following challenges:
  1. HLS November anything goes with dies challenge  - Used Curvy Leaf dies from Elizabeth Craft designs 
  2. Scrapy Land Challenge #78 - Anything goes - Used Elizabeth craft design Curvy leaves die
  3. The Ribbon girl November Card challenge- Anything Goes
  4. The Sisterhood of crafters -Let the Sparkles Fly- I have used the frosting powder with loads of sparkle in it from Papericious - Rajni Chawla's Frosting Powder
  5. Word Art Wednesday - Week 308 - 309 - Anything Goes
  6. Allsorts Challenge Blog Week 442- Glitter - I have used the frosting powder with loads of sparkle in it from Papericious - Rajni Chawla's Frosting Powder

I started with a watercolor cardstock cut to A2 size panel and did some distress ink blending to achieve a seamless background. I have used Spiced Marmalade, Crushed Olive, Fossilized Amber, Vintage Photo and Abandoned Coral distress inks. I spritzed it with some water and then lifted some color off the panel.
The leaves were randomly placed an diecut using the Curvy leaves dies from Elizabeth Craft designs on my bigshot. Then...was the fun part......using versamark, I added some Rajni Chawla's Frosting Powder on the diecut leaves as well as the front panel....randomly and heat set it. It is so much fun to achieve the frosting and all the shimmer and shine in just one it. I also applied glossy accents to few of the leaf diecuts.
I then added my front panel to a white textured cardstock from ItsyBitsy and trimmed the panel 1/8"from all the sides. I mounted this panel on my A2 size white cardbase using some white craft foam to give the card some dimension.
The leaves were shaped and added back to the panel from where they were diecut. Finished my card with the Thanks sentiment from Die namics and some Mudra Craft sequins. I diecut the sentiment 4 times from the same white cardstock and piled them on each other to obtain a dimensional sentiment. 
On the inside, I added the 1/8' sliver I cut initially from the add a little interest to the inside.
That finishes my card for today...I hope you liked it. Here is a small video clip to see the magic of the frosting powder on this card....

Gaddi Boxes/ Money Boxes/ Gift Boxes

Hello guys
Today I have few boxes for you. I made 60 of these as a custom order for a wedding ceremony. Though the original purpose of this was to accommodate money bundles.....I however feel it will be an apt gift box or chocolate box. Here are the 3 designs I made...I took the pictures at the very end when only few boxed were left to be packed.
To make these boxes, I have used 300 gsm white cardstock. The beautiful printed papers are from ItsyBitsy from L'Amour collection.
The the ribbons, chipboard embellishments and few flowers are from Itsybitsy as well. I have gold heat embossed the chipboard embellishments using Ranger Gold embossing powder. The big roses and poppies, rose buds and micro roses are from Crafters Corner.I have also added diecut leaves using Curvy Leaves Die from Elizabeth craft designs.

The box has ribbon as well as magnetic closures at the sides...because it was a money box...I added extra closure.

That is it from me today....I hope you all liked it. Thank you for visiting me and have a great week ahead.

Snuggle bug - unisex Mini Album with a Box and 12 onesie tags featuring K & Kompany papers.

Hello guys
Happy Diwali to all...I hope you guys are enjoying this Divine Festival of Lights.....May Goddess Laxmi bless you all with wealth and prosperity. 
Today, I have a very special project for you all...This is is my very first Unisex Mini Album. I have made this very bright and colorful album as a custom order using the K & Company Snuggle Bug paper pack. Like all my baby albums, this album is also accompanies with 12 onesie tags and a custom made box to hold everything snugly inside.
The album measures 9" x 9" x 43/4" in size and has 6 very interactive pages. so including the front and back covers, there are 14 sides in this album. Each page is decorated and has many pockets and flipouts...I feel all in all it should hold atleast 120 to 150 pictures in here. I also have give 12 big collage photo mats so you can even add collages....12 collages if added on one side. I have decorated my cover with flowers, butterflies and a shaker window in the center filled with cute sequins, i also have diecuts from Imaginisce to embellish my cover.
The box made to house this chunky album and 12 tags is made from scratch using heavyweight chipboard. This box measures 12" by 15" by 6" and has a partition to hold the tags. Also I added a pocket on the inside of the lid to hold more ephemera and pictures. I have used handmade papers to cover the inside as well as outside of the box and the lid is decorated with colorful polka dots from the scraps of the cardstock. To give it a more finished look, I added satin ribbon tot he box and tied it intoa neat bow....looks like a cool gift box.
The 12 onesie tags are very colorful and made to co ordinate with the paper pack. The numers used are foam numbers and are all glittered. A cute charm and ribbons completes the look. There is journalling space at the back...for every month.
I have a video walkthrough of this album...I encourage you to watch it to see the interactive elements in action. However, I am adding a few pics here also.

That's my album...I hope you guys will like it. Thank you for reading this very long picture heavy post...have a great day ahead.
