No Lines Coloring, Fabric Flower and a Double Gatefold card

Last week also I made a card using the same magnolia tilda stamp. Here again I have colored it using 'no lines' coloring technique. The ribbon flowers were bought from our local haberdashery shop. The fabric flower on the sentiment stamp ( crafty Individuals) is handmade. I followed a video on youtube ( Fiona Jennings) to make this fabric flower. Fiona is an amazing crafter.
The inner side panels were looking a bit  bare so I drew swirls on them with silver liquid pearl.

No Lines Magnolia Tilda with Hearts Shabby Chic Vintage Card Using Promarkers

This is my first attempt at making a shabby chic/ vintage card. I chose this cute magnolia tilda with hearts image. I have tried No Line stamping here. The roses  and buttons are from hobbycraft. The stick pin is handmade. In the first photo, the pink die cut on the base of the easel looks square, but it is actually a rectangle. I couldn't get it right however hard I tried :) Also, if you look closely, you will find that I have put flatback pearls as a border all around the card. The sentiment stamp is from Crafty Individuals 'Just be my friend' set.

Another Handmade Calendar

This is my second calendar this year, the other one is HERE. I am going to send this calendar to India for my Papa. I often made some decorations for his office. He always appreciated them, never let me think that they are ameature or not worthy to be put in the office of an esteemed surgeon.

I have used patterned papers from Pink Paislee ( hope chest), Kaisercraft, Prima ( Zephyr), MME, Webster's pages ( western romance) and First Edition etc to make this calendar. I have used clay flowers, quilled flowers and fabric flowers which I made HERE.

                                           I especially love the stick pin that I used with clay roses. I am in love with beads these days. I don't have proper hat pins ( 3") so I had to make do with the general purpose head pins to make this one.

Quilled Flowers: White on White Card

I am in love with beads these days. I made a hat pin using a general purpose head pin and then I had to make a card to use this pin :) I used Wplus9 stamp and die for the inside of the card.
