Birthday Fun with Clear Stamps!

hello blog pals! :)
How have u all been??? signing into blogland after exactly a MONTH!! the reason being a very happy one.. :) Pink Crayons *handmade cards* has become really really popular in college I must say.. I've been getting so many card orders that I have hardly got any time to even plan the study schedule for my semester exams (which are starting very soon....just 10 days away...*SAD puppy face*)
So ya... PC (pinkcrayons) will remain shut untill I get done with my exams and that means NO card orders *relief* and dat again means I'll start blogging "regularly" :P I sooooo badly want to upload all the cards I've made during the whole month...

Today I want to share with u of my mossssssst dear card projects.. Like so many of you crafters I too have started enjoying working with clear stamps!! :D yayy!! :) check this out...

A birthday card for a very close friend of mine.. She was my classmate in 11th and 12th grade and since then we have been the best of friends! :) She is someone who loves simple yet attractive things....this is why i have gone in for a card with lots of bling but simple embellishments! :) 
I have used a "lacey circle" for the first time ever... I ordered for it from the kalalayaa craft store...
(I have blurred my friend's picture placed on the lacy circe 'coz I suppose she wouldn't like it as she is a soooper photo conscious girl)

I have used BIRTHDAY FUN Clear stamp set by Inkadinkado that I recently ordered from Kalalayaa Craft Store :) I tried out something NEW... I have individually stamped and cut out all images I wanted to use for the card..The images have been hightlighted with a black marker followed by some heat embossing.. Just to give it a finished look i have added a little glitter sparkle using light coloured glitter tubes from fevicryl.
(It took me quite some time to stamp...cut out...hightlight..heat emboss and decorate these images...but worth the time I put in 'coz I totally lovee the outcome) and the best-est part is that my friend loved it toooo :D

I have heat embossed the border design which again came along with the stamp set..
I have used dark red embosssing powder from `a la mode embossing powder set...the stars again have been filled in with a light green glitter tube :)

It has been quite a while now since I have wanted to tie a "perfect bow" on a card...I FINALLY DID IT.. followed a tutorial on YOUTUBE and got it right...perfectly right *with a self-pat on my back* lol..
Sweets and Treats - My Partner In Crafting Crime
Try a New Technique - Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenges (stamping,lacey circle,perfect bow)

Thats it from me for now...
Hope u all liked the card.. and thanks a million for dropping by my blog and showing so much love...
Will post the other projects soon... :)
P.S: wish me luck for my exams.. :( I really need some luck to perform well for the way I'am under-prepared this time!!
