Mid Month Inspiration #TTC 9

Hi Everyone,

Hoping that the change in weather is keeping your spirits high and that you all are well prepared for the summer onset which is arriving soon !!

Summers bring in mixed feelings....while the weather can be really unpleasant (specially with the humidity issue in Mumbai), the summer clothing and summer colours are soothing to our sensory nerves...and keeping that in mind we have our March challenge Be Thankful/ Grafteful + Use all colors of Rainbow!


Do check out our initial inspirations and challenge details in the above link.

As the mid month inspiration I have a very simple CAS card ...sometimes less is more and thats what this card emphasises!!!


I have taken a black card base and layered it with a script pattern paper from DCWV. Sprinkled it with red and green dots with a help of a paint brush and layered in the feather stamped image coloured in the rainbow colours.




The image has been stacked up with multiple layers of diet cuts to give it dimension. Post that I have taken a black strip and hand written the sentiment 'Thanks' with my white signo uniball pen and stuck it at the middle of the raised feather image.


I hope you like the inspiration and join us for the ongoing March Challenge.

Happy Crafting
Saumya

Mid month Valentine Inspiration| Envelope Flip Book

Hi Everyone,
Tejal here with the mid month inspiration for the February Challenge - TTC#8: Valentine's Day + No Red/ Pink

For me, Valentine's is all about the small small things, the love letters, the little notes and the small moments that make love magic!

So with that thought in mind, I made a Envelope Flip book to tuck in the love letters, the pictures, the memories but not bulky at the same time!
This is made with just 4 envelopes! I am adding pictures and video at the bottom of the post.

Honestly it was hard to stay away from pinks and red, but I turned it into a complete masculine album/flip book!

The cover has space for a picture -4x4


 Here are the envelopes, and inside each envelope I have tucked in one card with a little stamped image for notes. 





There are more pictures on my blog! Please do hop by and check it out.

Check out the small video here


Hope you guys will join us, just a few days for this challenge to close!
Till I meet you again,

Tejal
