Winter Fun

Hi everyone!
                    Christmas is not very many weeks away now !!! So I decided to make another card.

               At Inspired By Stamping Having a Photo inspiration with color theme and I have combined with two forms of inspirations.
IBSIC-#87---Color       IBSIC-#87---Silver
       I just love this little penguin from Hot Of The Press Stamp set. I stamped it on a white CS with Versacolor Black pigment ink, heat embossed his muffler and body and used promarkers to color him, fussy cut out it. I also added a snowball he is holding ... looks like he is ready for a snowball fun :). I got very inky with sponging the background sky for my card and added shimmer in the sky. I simply stamped two sizes of snowflake stamps from the same stamp set randomly.
  I ripped two layers from Snippets of white card stock for the snowbanks at the bottom and added sparkling snow to the top for some shine. Added some punched heat embossed (snippet) snowflakes. Popped up my image for dimension!!!
  Added a Winter Fun Sentiment at the bottom. You can see the shine and shimmer in the sky clearly in this another photo..........
   I finished my card by adding a silver colored dangler, a silver cord bow and look carefully this cute little snowman  ....... I made it using a silver colored button, a turquoise colored brad for his cap and added a little ball of cotton with a  white gem. I drew the face using a black pigment ink waterproof pen from Potentate.

I had so much fun making this card and I was smiling the whole time ... :). And hope you enjoyed this winter fun creation for Christmas!!!

Jessies Gift
By Jehanne Silva Freimane and here is my creation.......
 She is so adorable and cute and can be used for any occasion! I colored her with my promarkers, added some glossy accents to her dress and gift box. Fussy cut out her and popped her up by foam dots. I created a background scene too using Distress ink. I used my own dots stencil and applied homemade texture paste and added some silver colored loose glitter to create some snow in the sky.
 I used all the new dies which I recently purchased and this die cut gift box is awesome. I paper pieced it with different DPs and embellished it with a snowflake and a jeweled stone, rhinestones. I stamped the love sentiment and embossed it.

Diwali decor borders

Hello to everyone!
Wishing You All A Happy And prosperous Diwali!!!

  Diwali is known as the festival of lights celebrated in INDIA. As it is a tradition to decorate and light up our houses with an impressive array of candles and small clay oil lamps to symbolize the triumph of good over evil. As a family we spend most of the day preparing the house by cleaning and decorating it before the evening party begins. The evening party for family and friends to come together, enjoy a varied and plentiful selection of flavorsome Indian dishes, busting crackers after the God worship. The house becomes a beacon of light and merriment full of laughter, music and fireworks.
  Here is my Diwali d├ęcor piece(set of 4 pieces)........

I stamped the images on a heavyweight light yellow colored CS and trimmed the edges with a zigzag scissor. These are the wooden mounted stamps (two different border stamps and one is a peacock image stamp) and I combined all these images using watercolor cakes. I created  multicolored peacocks. I added three different colors on my block  and put my stamp on that block and then stamped the images. Embellished with some sequences and rhinestones for an eye.                                                                                                                                                 

Tomorrow is the actual Diwali day and I am enjoying to decorating my house and welcoming guests, sharing sweets and good wishes. And I will add Rangoli tomorrow at my Pooja (worship) place!!! I will share the post day after tomorrow again.

Supplies used:
Stamps from my stash
Watercolor cakes from Milan

Merry Christmas

Hello everyone!
Have a beautiful day!
  I decided to make a Christmas card since it is just around the corner.  I created a little winter scene with my stamps.
This time I also choose a BINGO theme at
For this challenge  I am using the NINE items from 2nd row and p column (6+ buttons, handwritten journal, distressed edges, Tags from the row and flowers, gemstones, black & white photo matting, Bling/glitter from the column P). And also inspired by silver color theme.

I enjoyed so much to put all these elements in my creation!!! So here is my project.........

One more bright picture
I love this stamp set, really adorable and cute. I embossed the white CS. For this one I cut a large circle using the Spellbinders Nestabilities decorative elements, topped that off with my polar bear snow scene I made the sliver mirri "picture frame" as a snippet for it ,with an embossed circle inside.
 I stamped the image using jet black archival ink, fussy cut and torn the base for snowy banks. Instead of coloring the image I added stickles to show them as snowy polar bears, put glossy accents to the eyes and added diamond Dust for the snow, popped up the images for dimension. Matted on the PP and a border from Do Craft -Daisy and Penelope & Percy A4 paper pack.

I don't have an icicles die cut and got an idea to make it using my hot glue gun. I randomly placed the glue on an acetate sheet, added the glitter dust and removed it from the sheet and ......tada .....done easily:)
I distressed the edges of this metal flower.
Created the Christmas tree by adding corrugated sheets and some cotton snow with silver stickles on it, tied a velvet ribbon bow and added it with foam dots.
Added a Christmas Lace to create lots of texture and dimension.
Added the sentiment tags from the same stamp set and  a perfect match for this scene.

This one remind minds me so much of ice and snow and sparkly winter things. I embellish with flower gemstones , rhinestone, bling and a enamel pink colored heart.
 The inside of this card says:
I journaling the inside matter and layout a photo of my daughter. Merry X-Mas letters are the die cuts and added buttons too. I will mail this card as a surprise to her before Christmas!
 Hope you enjoyed this creation in Non Traditional colors!

True Love

Hello there!
Good Morning!

I tried to make a CAS card this time, they really attract me, but difficult to make without embellishment too:)Lol. And I am very much inspired by Stamploration Design Team creations! And their challenge is "Stamps & Embossing".

Here is my creation using one stamp set from Itsy Bitsy.

I began with a shaped card and extended my die cut, I want the larger size for it. Cut out the front panel for this card using Sizzix Framelits dies labels and stitched frames.

 Embossed the front piece in Darice woodgrain folder. I used a yellow colored CS and  cut it into two pieces in a banner shape as shown in the pic and popped them with foam dots.

 Using an oval die, I cut out an oval window and sponged it with chalk colors from Srappin Gear Pink shades set. Then stamped a butterfly and a small rose in Archival jet black ink. Then I watercolored them using white pearly water, you can see the shimmer. Then out came the paintbrush for a bit of splattering.  And applied the stamped oval using 3d foam. Then an another banner was attached with a sentiment on it. Finished off the card with some leaves and pearl gems.

Happy with the result! Hope you like it:)

Other supplies used: All supplies used from Itsy Bitsy store.
White Textured CS
 Watercolor cakes from Milan
 Banner die from Sizzix Thinlits dies banner& borders
Leaves are from Coture creation-Intricutz Dies Cortazar

Shine on

Hello Friends!
Good Evening!
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I was very much busy with my daughter for last few days. She arrived from Chennai to spend her 15 days holidays. Now I am free and back to my crafting work.
         This time, there is a little change in the weather and my daughter has started going on bike rides at Chennai. It feels so good to be outside when the weather has started to warm up. With that idea in mind, I found inspiration for my card today. And I created a fun fold card, choosing Autumn colors.

 I got my hands on a new clear stamp set "Summer Mae" from Some odd Girl. I stamped the image on a white CS and enjoy to color her with my promarkers and fussy cut out her. I added glossy accents to her eyes.
Here is the close up:
I started with a white colored textured CS, created the sun rays at the top of the corner included in this set. Then I  created  the smiling face for the sun, distress the watercolor paper,  adding google eyes to brighten up the day!
 I matted my image on a PP.
 Then I popped up my image for the dimension and added a glittered foam bicycle, some grass as a last layer.
  I added a chipboard cloud and stamped some more cloud pattern on it to create a texture from the same stamp set and glued some loose blue colored glitter at the edges.
 Die cut the front layer borders with  Spellbinders A2 scalloped borders .

 I completed my card by adding the “shine on” sentiment from the same set.
 I finished off my card with some embellishments-puffy flowers, butterfly, pearls and  satin ribbon bows.
Hope you enjoyed my fun creation!

Green CS
Bird songs PP from Jags
Bicycle from Memory box
Grass from Impression Obsession
