Whats Up Crafty?

Hello again everyone. I have started my
Whats Up Crafty post with a lovely smiling
face. To make me feel a little better. This will 
be my last post in this segment as DT for 
Beyond Grey Challenges. :( :( :(
I'm afraid my time is coming to an end.
As much as I would love to stay on I have some
other matters that I need to spend some time on.
I have LOVED my time here. Pooja and the rest
of the DT girls are awesome. Everyone is very
talented and wonderful inspirations. I will keep
coming back to Beyond Grey Challenges and join
in on some here so please keep an eye out for me 
and my entries. Any time pop on over to my blog,
I would love to see you.

I have to keep coming back also so I can see what 
you have all been up to with your wonderful designs.
I have loved looking at each and every submission. It has
all been so much fun. Now back to my Whats Up Crafty?

These two cards I have made with my scraps.
My New Years resolution was to use up my scraps
where ever I could. I have colored them with my 
Stampin` Up chalks. To make things stand out a 
little more I have used my markers around the edge 
of the papers. I used dimension tables on the stamps 
to stand them out from the card. 

These cards are simple but fun to make. They are always
good to have in the draw for the forgotten Birthday etc. 
If anyone else is like me it happens. I then get out a card
and no one knows I have forgotten them. The following 
are a couple more I have done in the last month.

Thank you Pooja, Kalindi, Ebba, Snehal, Lucille and Jovita.
I have loved working with you all. You are wonderful people
and so talented. Maybe some time I can come back. I'm sure 
you wont miss my lengthy emails LOL. It is hard to let go of
family. Hugs to you all. XX

For all those who follow Pooja's blog and submit to the 
challenges good luck with your crafting. I hope my last 
Whats Up Crafty? has given you some ideas.

Hello and welcome to BGC #30
Summer Fresh Birthday

This new challenge is a combo challenge...
Make a card/ project / Tag / gift Item or Layout- Birthday related with the colors of the Watermelon and Mango

Please note that you can use colors such as White, Black or Cream for you base and also any other color such as Green for leaves... Provided it does not overshadow the main colors.

The winner of this challenge will receive a Rs 500 voucher from Crafters Corner

So now lets move on for some lovely inspiration from our Design Team


Here is Pooja  with a tag all set to impress.... She has captured the colors so well in a small piece of art.
Now isn't that really a beauty???


Next up is Brenda with a super gorgeous card.... I absolutely love those big blooms and the MDF cutouts just add to the beauty.

Next in line is


So here we have Lucille with a  Sun Hat Girl stamped card and some cute colouring. 
This is just the perfect image for a Summer Card... 

Then we have here


What an Awesome gifting option .. A personally designed and handmade label for a bottle of Wine made by Ebba... She tells me that she makes these for friends and its a really appreciated gift... 
So a nice idea for you all for your next gift. 
Thanks Ebba

Then we have another of my favorite crafter's 

Snehal has made a tag for a gift and i like the way she has used the colors from the palette in the base as well as the embellishments... Good job there.

And up last is my inspiration
Heat embossing and Distressing is a technique I have been wanting to try ... So here it is ... Also got some new dies as you can see the sentiment and the butterflies... 
I think I like this so much gonna give it to myself ....(Wink Wink ;)... Yes its my birthday this month... So happy to have to host this challenge during this time...)

I hope you guys enjoy these inspirations and start working on the challenge soon.
