Let's celebrate!

Hello Crafters!

Happy Saturday! 

Today is an Independence Day in India and I also wanted to celebrate this occasion by creating a card on this theme! 

Happy Independence day! 

It's a one-layer CAS card in graphic style!

The image is from Mudra stamps called Ria, so versatile and perfect for this occasion!

Stamped the image on my white card base and colored it with my Chameleon Pens. I masked it and added some grungy effects inspired by my Country Flag using DI! 

What Is The Actual Meaning Of The Indian Flag Or The 'Tiranga'

Die-cut the word Celebrate 3 times and colored it.

Hoping you enjoyed the project!

Happy crafting!

Sending Birthday Wishes

Hello, everyone!
Happy Thursday!

In love with these pretty array blooms, so delicate and fancy and I think the best way to showcasing them layering with striped and polka dots paper!

I used a stitched rectangle die for a striped PP. 
Then die cut these array blooms 2 times from black scrap sheet and 4 times out of a white scrap sheet.
Now it was delighted to color the internal die-cut pieces with my distress markers. Colored directly and blending them with a little water brush pen and adhered those pieces on one another and adjusted the pattern according to my requirement.
Then I die cut a double stitched circle from the centre out of my striped panel.
I added a dotted green PP on my white card base. Stamped the sentiment using my Misti. 

Now adhered that striped panel using foam tape.
 Arranged the floral array at the top of the circle corner with dimension.

Accented with few sequins, half pearls and shimmer in the centre of the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy crafting!

Designer Shaped Gate Fold card

Hello everyone!
Happy Friday!

Today, I am showing you how to make a shaped gatefold card using designer border die and this one is simplest!

For this, I used a textured rich red card base in A4 size. Scored at 3'' from each side and burnished the folds well with a bone folder for the crisp edges. Using my designer scalloped borders die, I die cut both the front panels. Now I placed my scattered polka dots stencil on both the gatefold flaps and heat embossed some dots in gold sparkle and some in red ink.

I stamped the flower and leaves images on white cardstock. First I heat embossed the outlined images using gold metallic sparkle EP and layered the floral images in hot summer ink colors using shades of red, yellow and green. Fussy cut them all.

Die-cut a scalloped circle out of red and a stitched circle out of white CS. Arranged my flowers.
Adhered it to the left side of the opening in the centre ensuring that only the left half closure piece attached well.

Close-up picture of the sentiment.
Hoping you all enjoyed the project.

Dolphin delight!

Hello friends!
Happy Friday!

Another fun card with lots of white space and inked sunset scene. I made my own sunset background using only one-third part of my card.

The darling dolphins are from Memory box have already jumped on my card!
I love how the waves go in different directions, creating a more realistic look to the sunset scene!

Summer and water are nearly inseparable, and that is where I began this card.
Firstly on a snippet of white CS, I created a sunset scene using drawing inks and they are waterproof. 
The trouble is, I've never used them before and wanna gave it a try, so I was amazed when I managed to create this background. Go to :)
Added that panel to my white card base at the bottom.

A close-up view

I tucked two delightful dolphins into the ocean waves with dimension.

Hello friends!
Happy Thursday!

Who wouldn't have a brighter day if these little fellas appeared in their mailbox to celebrate their Birthday!
I have made a card with masking technique featuring What's up duck stamp!
I come up with this cute scene! Isn't the Froggie is so cute, a perfect companion to the duck.

My Achievements

So the first thing I did was sit down and color my images with ZIG markers.

I masked my focus panel from both the side using a masking sheet.
For this one layer card, I made my own stencil using puffy clouds. I began by positioning onto my card base. I masked it off so that only the portion of stencil would be used. Then ink blended through that portion with. Few little raindrops added the final touch using a stencil and sparkle paste.

I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it with silver metallic EP.  

Added puddle water image for my frog using DI. Added some splatters in white.

Finally, I added my cute duck and a little frog to the scene.
 Hope this brings a smile on your face with some showers of joy!

Yes you! You are loved

Hello to all!
Happy Thursday!

I pulled out one of my new favourite stamp set for my card, keeping it CAS.
And this card can be used for any celebrations!

There is a challenge at Less is more using solid and outline image as well. 

I chose a very soft colour to create a wonky striped watercoloured background on a stitched rectangle using a stencil. Added some splatters.

I first stamped the outlined floral image in Coral berry and solid part in with cotton candy and frosty pink Altenew inks. Stamped the leaf part as well in Evergreen ink and solid with frayed leaf ink. Fussy cut them.

Adhered my focal panel to my white card base. The sentiment is from another stamp set using Coral berry ink. Arranged the floral and leaf image using foam dots.

What do you think, I just love this card with a soft look! 
I don't think it needs any embellishment :)D

There is wind beneath my wings...

Hello friends!
Happy Friday!

A card made for the colour challenge at Cut It Up Challenges using pink, coral, yellow, blue, green....... made me think of a summery scene!

Started with stamping the silhouette image in coral colour on a graph pp which is perfect for this cute image. I used my Misti especially helpful for exact placement of the image with good ink coverage on this PP.
The wild grass is created using ZIG watercolour brushes. The tiny flowers growing in the grass in pink using the same stamp, a part of it. The sentiment is from another stamp set with flutters by. They just really seemed to go perfectly with the sentiment.
Now die cut some clouds out of this main graph panel. I hand cut the kite base and then used dotted pp in blue tones and accented those pieces to the kite with bows.  I thought it would be fun to use in this cute little scene. Added a string to the kite.

Before adhering this main panel to my white card base I added pink dotted pp to the negative space of the clouds for more interest and textures using foam tape. Finished it off by adding few sequins.
Hoping you enjoyed this fun-filled card!
I hope your day is a good one!
