Dress it up card!


I am guest designing at ICR blog for the current challenge of April month

Theme for the challenge is Dress it up! 

Here is my inspiration card for the same....

For this card is began with cutting the dress shape of a cardstock. I added the glitter foam sheet in the upper part of the dress. For the flair of the dress I cut a yellow card stock in the shape and embossed it using an embossing folder in my BigShot. I added a lace at the bottom of the dress and tied a satin around the waist. I mounted this using foam adhesive on a red cardstock. Later stamped the sentiment using Versamark and white embossing powder and heat set it. Lastly added flowers and few sequins to add some element.

Colourfull card

Hello, everyone!
I am sharing a card based on an unusual mathematical theme of  "Venn diagram"

This is a very interesting concept. 
All the Math lovers are surely gonna enjoy making this. I too had fun making it.

Here's my card!

For my card I decided to go with the symmetrical heart shaped die-cuts. I formed three sets of "Venn diagrams" in petal shape. 
The first petal of red and yellow intersecting with ornage.
The second petal of yellow and blue intersecting with green.
The third petal of red and blue intersecting with purple.
Everytime the primary colours overlapping each other to form the secondary colours.

All these 3 petals were arranged on a white circle die-cut to form a flower. 
The centre portion where all the colours overlap each other is represented by the white circle seen through the gap. 
(All colours together make white)

Adhered this flower on a black stitched rectangle. Mounted the black panel on a white card base. 
Stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment. Lastly, added few sequins to add some element.

Thank you for droppping by.

Embossed card

A new challenge begins today at Make my Monday blog
The theme for the new challenge is Embossing - Heat or dry.

I am Guest designing for the challenge. 

Here is my Inspiration card for the same.

My card features dry embossed BG.

I began with dry embossing the card panel with an Embossing folder in my Bigshot. I later mounted this panel on the card base. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of white cardstock and adhered it to the base with foam adhesive. Embellished the card with flowers and leaves.  
That makes my card ready!!!

Mini Album

Good evening everyone!!

I have been waiting for a long time to post this project. 
A Mini album.
(This is a pictorial post, so it is a bit heavy....)

I made this on the basis of a tutorial I found on YouTube with few minor changes as per my requirement. Here is the link to the tutorial.

I have used the Papericious Pattern Collection paper pack for this project and the embellishments are from Itsy Bitsy.

The front panel of the album adorns a Shaker tag with beautiful coloured shaker elements. 

Inside views

Here's a video of the same.

Three - in - one cards

Hello, everyone!

Today I have three CAS cards over the blog made using one single stencil.

For all the three cards I have stencilled a piece of cardstock with distress inks, mounted it on a card base and made the card.


For this card, I cut a strip from the stencilled cardstock. I mounted this on the card base. Die-cut and layered three butterflies. Stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Adhered the sentiment and the butterfly to the card base with the help of foam adhesive.


For this card, I used the stitched rectangle die to cut a panel. I mounted this panel on the card base in a slant fashion. I took a black card strip. Stamped a sentiment and white heat embossed on it. Adhered this strip across the card. Added few flowers and sequins to add elements.

Card - 3

For this card, I mounted the entire stencilled panel on the card base. Die-cut a heart with a brown corrugated sheet. Mounted the heart with foam adhesive over a bunched black thread. Lastly took a black strip. Stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment on it. Mounted the strip over the heart.

So all my cards are ready!

I thoroughly enjoyed making them. Hope you liked my cards too!

Mixed media nameplate / fridge magnet

Today I am here with two mixed media projects.

Nameplates and a fridge magnet

The Nameplates

These are customised nameplates made as birthday return gifts. 
To make these nameplates I first applied white gesso to the wooden base. Used texture paste and stencil to create the background texture design all over the base. After heat setting it, I used colour splash sprays over the base. 
With the help of Shilpakar, I made the face of the girl/boy and painted them. Using a small amount of Shilpakar I adhered the faces onto the bases. 
I took stitched circle die-cuts, covered it with gesso and let it dry. I mounted these die-cuts on the wooden base along with double tapes and a strong liquid adhesive. I stuck the alphabets on the circle with liquid glue. 

Here are the close up pictures....

My next project is a fridge magnet. 

Fridge magnet

To make this fridge magnet I first applied white gesso to the MDF circle base. Used texture paste and stencil to create the background texture design all over the base. After heat setting it, I used colour splash sprays over the base. 
I adhered a magnetic sheet to the back of the MDF. 
I embellished it with some flowers and pollens. 
I used a heart die cut and mounted it on the base using double tape and a strong liquid adhesive. The photograph was then mounted on the heart shape. 
Lastly, I used the die cut word "US" painted it with black and glitter and mounted it over the base with double tape and strong liquid adhesive.

Here are few more pictures of the magnet.

Inspired by a movie / book

Hello, everyone!
The new challenge for the month of April is up at Craft rocket challenge blog and the theme for this month is "Inspired by a Movie / book"

Here is my DT inspiration card for the theme.

My card is inspired by a movie called "Goosebumps" wherein a Character in the storyline is shown  to be an author, who has written a series of books. The "series of book " is what inspired me. 

Here's my card

For this card, I began with colouring this digi of a stack of books. I had won this #oddball digi in one of the challenges. I love this image very much. After colouring this image I die-cut it with a stitched rectangle die. 
I took a yellow cardstock and stuck a matching patternpaper on it. I mounted the die-cut digi on this, placing it at the edge. 
Attached the sentiment with foam adhesive overlapping it with the die-cut rectangle. A small bookmark with a string, stuck it on one side completes my card. This was basically to fill in the open gaps. 

Thank you for dropping by my blog. Hope you liked my card
