Wedding anniversary card with a gift bag

Hi everyone!
                   It's finally time to share the project I have been working on for two days . It's a wedding card with a gift bag for my parent's anniversary on 29th Jan.

           This is a gatefold fancy card. A smiling cute bear holding a cake - I think it is perfect for the card. This is a free digi image from and coloured in promarkers and sakura glittered pens and embossed the edges with versa glitter powder. My card base is a golden CS and I added a soft cream color CS panel on it . I attached a glittered handmade paper in a gatefold style and  added a stand too. On the inside panel I used a flower stencil(new) on the background and stamped with Versa color ultimate pigment ink. Then a free sentiment from is adhered on it and edged with golden glitter pen and daubered with versa stamp. The flowers are handmade using Spellbinder nestabilities diecut and glittered and attached on a metal wire wrapped with  green paper tape. Some embellishments used are - golden ribbon, bow with a rose, shiny butterfly, crystal button flower and pearls which are giving an elegant look to the card.
Here are some close ups:


            I have created a gift bag to match with this card. A tag is attached to its handle with a ribbon. Matching stamped background on the tag with a little butterfly attached on it and  a free sentiment from desert diva on it. Hand bag is embellished with matching flowers, heart punch and die cutout , crystal flower button, ribbon and a lace to finished it off.



And here is everything together:


  I've never done one of these before so I 'm really pleased how it turned out with a gift bag!!!

  I will be entering these challenges: stencil stamp on the tag bag(not a card+button+flower stencil stamping)

Girl in pink

Hi there!
              I love to share my latest creation in which I used Magnolia stamp for the very first time.  I really love this Tilda......maybe it's the sweet, soft, vintage look,and the girlish style of it!

             Firstly ,I embossed white ivory CS using Itsy Bitsy rose and heart folder (new). Then I used light brown dry chalked  in the background and gave a shading effect to the roses and leaves using chalk the result and the look it gave:). Then I used EK Success scalloped border punch at the bottom and hand stitched with brown thread chain. Here are the close-ups:

  Then, I coloured lovely Tilda with promarkers and i love how it came about. White CS is the base, red CS is the second layer, SOFT pink is the third layer, Bo Bunny Double Dot Designs paper(double scalloped border) and the PP (my friend gifted me) is the last one. I matted and popped up Tilda. Sentiment is hand written by me and I added a little sparkle with Sakura glitter pen to it.. There are lovely embellishments such as flowers, rhinestones, soft pink coloured ribbon and artificial coloured grass. At last , I attached a corner using a charm with twine bow to finish off this card.
     Peep into inside:

                              Again I went with my front card theme and left the space for the sentiment.
It's so much  fun to create a card with so many possibilities!

Little darling

          I decided to go monochrome this time and follow a sketch from: Seems a little sketchy.
This lovely girly card features a very sweet Stampendous Boots Kiddo girl stamp which I have coloured with promarkers  and added a touch of Sakura glittered pens in  her dress, shoes and hair. She is carrying a newly purchased handbag which I have added a price tag to make it more realistic.


        This is a cream base card with black CS, Green CS and patterned paper from DCWV Lemon stack 6x6 pad. I heat embossed the PP from the centre using Versa super fine black glitter embossing powder. Sentiment is hand written on a green layer panel. Embellishments used - a ribbon, button, handmade felt foam flowers, handbag charm(new),pearls and gems to finish off this card.

Challenges:, ribbon, butterfly, glitter, charm I have no option because this is  my second sketch card ,so this is my favourite sketch from seems a little sketchy and look what a fun card it is and I enjoyed it most!

Beauty of nature

Hi everyone!
      When I saw a challenge on Crafty Boots (Sunshine). I started to think about the theme and wanted to give a very different look to the card using lots of yellow and a version of the sun.

 I chose a yellow colour CS and give it a fancy fold and heat embossed the center using Versa yellow colour embossing powder. Using dauber I gave the effect of nature (clouds and grass). Then I clear stamped two little birds sitting on the grass watching the sun and saying "You fill my world with colours".
  There is so much more -  Martha Stewart Border punch , Spellbinder Bauble Blossoms Two (a new die in my stash), rangoli die and few embellishments, twine, shiny flowers.

    I hope this brings smile to your face!
    Challenges: C is for colours I am a nature lover as you seeing in this card with lots of colour. Metal (shiny flower sheet)+embossing+circle

You have my Heart

Hi! Happy Monday to you all.
                                                   Yes, yes, yes! Another valentine card and this time I used soft and cool colours. I chose pink and purple as I love how these two colours look together.  I'm using this image again because it is so cute and sweet. I coloured it with promarkers and glittered the shoes and girl's dress.

     I stamped the background of white ivory CS using the Kaisercraft OF169 clear stamp using versa colours which is a new addition to my stock.
     I mounted the focal panel on glittering pattern vellum sheet which is giving a soothing effect . And finished off with some flower embellishments, gems, a stunning lace, fauxed ribbon, a cute button with a smile, and a cute heart shape rhinestone.

     Look at the inside view: I again stamped with the clear stamp to match with the outer look. I added a free sentiment and coloured it with promarkers. I layered it on a die cut and glittered all around the die cut.
     Hope you like it!!

Romantic heart card

Hello everyone!
   While visiting Fred She Said (heart with roses card) I got an idea because I was very impressed by this card project. And I just love how it turned out!!!


   For my card I used a free heart digi image. And embossed it and coloured the flowers garland with promarkers, Japanese water brushes (which is my favourite) and Sakura golden gel pen. Then I layered it on the pink heart and applied Metallic satin rose colour (from Encore) to the pink heart edges.
   The base is dark pink CS on which I layered floral PP from my stash. Further more, I punched out some hearts and stamped LOVE with clear stamps. Some of the embellishments I used are swirls from Couture Creations (New die cut I used), pearls. Also a die cut used for flowers from Itsy Bitsy Thin cuts Rangoli Art Die and not to forget I added a few rhinestones for the finishing touch.


   Have a look at the inside view:

   The designer love creation is a free digi image which I coloured with promarkers and layered it on Rangoli art die.
  Thanks for looking. Love to receive and appreciate any comments!!!

Baby Giraffe

Hello friends!
  I made a card using a cute character (giraffe) which is hand drawn. I arranged giraffe patterned paper pieces to the sketch and coloured in the dots with promarkers.  I added a little piece of scarf around its neck.

  I  layered various card elements. The brown pattern paper I used was a new addition to my stash.The sentiment is from Porta Craft sticker.

Flower Power

 I made up 8.5X8.5" square card. I used an adorable image as a freebie and thought it would make a cute card because Valentine's day is approaching. I coloured the image with promarkers. I have sparkled the cup edges with Sakura Glittered pen. I gently applied shades of pink with chalk set from Scrappin Gear around the hearts.

 I placed some heart beads in the centre and placed an acetate sheet on it and covered it with the leftover purple glittered sheet. Now this has also become my first shaker card.
 I popped up the image onto a 4.5X4.5" pink CS. Then I added a ribbon On the top layer. The sentiment is a sticker from Porta Craft which I layered on Spellbinder die cut tag.
  The purple CS is embossed with a folder from Itsy Bitsy and I adhered both these panel on the main peach CS. The Purple glittered sheet lace border is a die cut from Spellbinder Shapeabilities Asian  Accents. I added bits n pieces of scallop border as a banner.
 I really wanted a wow effect so I added a sparkle flower charm, beads, blings and rhinestones as a flourish.

 I continued the same theme on the inside with another freebie sentiment. I again used glitter pen on the sentiment.
 I am really satisfied with my card. What do you think!!!
