Happy Friday! Today is the first time I am guest designing over at Indian Craft Room and I am loving it. The challenges are now one month long and that gives you all the time to enter your creations.
This time around we have a Sketch with a twist…and this sketch has been designed for ICR by Piali Biswas...and the twist is to add felt/fabric.

And here is what I did with it 🙂

 Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Ippity(A bit of burlap); ink: Jenni Bowlin(Brown Sugar); pattern paper: Echo Park(Dots & stripes Candy Shoppe) ; embellishment: Pie Lane(Rainbow Lustre Crytals, Wooden Stitched detail button, Self-adhesive flower sticker); 

Remember the chiffon sleeve from a dress on THIS project. I used the same here to make the flower. I have the hang over from the last 3 days of re-cycling and was thinking on the same lines 🙂
I love that Pie Lane Stitched details button in the center, its just the perfect accent. The pattern papers are from Echo Park Dots & Stripes. Love that collection for its versatility.

P.S. Another way to use your “Bit of burlap” stamp.

And its time for our regular Friday feature. I missed it last week for the lack of questions. But here it is back with the bang.

Q&A

 Q1 Have you tried glossy accents for the wings on THIS card?                                               Tejal
A1 I love that we think alike on so many levels 🙂 I was in a hurry to post the card and enter some challenges and didn’t have the patience to wait for the glue&gloss to dry. But I did add glossy accents on the wings later and love it.


Q2 Can you please share how to store stamps and scrap papers?                                            Anita
A2 I would love to show you but I am not very fancy on my organizing skills. I would rather buy more stamps and supplies than storage solutions. Yup, I am greedy when it comes to stamps 😀 . I
already showed you one non-expensive way of storing paper scraps, sticker, etc HERE. Maybe I will take some time and show you other bits & pieces of my storage soon.

Q3 Is that real candy on the card on THIS card?                                                                  Christine
A3 Oh I wish!! But it isn’t a real candy. These are the donuts from Pie Lane. Anybody interested in purchasing, contact me 🙂

Q4 How on the world you get ideas like this for recycling?                                                Priya Sivraj 
A4 OK, this one is easy. I have been crafting long before I discovered blogging and all the awesome supplies and tools available. So I am used to re-cycling right from the beginning. But I won’t take all the credit alone. I also browse various other blogs and sites and pick up ideas that I like and then add my own and come up with something unique.

Q5 How did you punch the hole in CD??                                        Khushboo, Shalini, Bhavana, Jovita  A5 Remember how I keep telling(read “cribbing”) you all, that I do not have any fancy tools. Well, I do the same to my husband, telling him how I am so poor on my craft tools and supplies. So on my last birthday, he got the hint and bought a crop-a-dile for me. Love that tool, cuts through anything like butter 🙂
But you can try any other hole punching tool on a waste CD. I am sure that will work too.
Moral of the story: Cribbing does work on husbands sometime, especially around birthdays..LOL..Give it a try!

Hope you like it! Thanks for visiting!
