Words are all I have, to take you heart away....

Hey crafty bugs,

I had recently made few cards for Mudra Stamps as their DT and you can check them here Mudra .
I would like to share one of the cards which I loved creating because it involved coloring with my Zigs (crazy about them).

Stamped and heat embossed the image and colored with Zig color pens. For the background, on a  white CS I lightly added purple, blue and orange zig colors well diluted with water. Splattered black and purple colors and added few die cuts. Assembled the fussy cut images, and added a few colorless sequins. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and cut around the letters and mounted it on foam tape.

I am submitting this for the following challenge:

Easel card with drawer

Hello there,

I have a wonderful project to share which I loved doing. It is an easel card with drawer. So what's new in that you might say, many have done this!!
Well It is my first try and I loved the outcome so thought of sharing with you.
You can put trinkets or goodies in the drawer and it will be a 2-in-1 - greetings with a gift. The drawer size is 5" x 5" x1.5".

 I used kraft card stock for the base and layered the pattern papers with black CS. I have used Bob n Betty and Papericious PP , both Indian companies. The flowers are hand made with flower die set from HFC Botanical wings.

Here is one more card that I did. Handmade flowers with the same HFC die.

I love pink color and have used that as the main color and used the rest of the colors also.
My style is a mixture of shabby chic and layered styles.

gift envelope

Good day to you!
I made a box type gift envelope that can make your gifting unique and special. You can use it for gifting money, gift card, chocolates etc. I used Papericious Ephemera pack and brown card stock. I decorated with hand made flowers and die cuts.

Here are a few pictures.

I have done a photo tutorial for the envelope. The dimensions are what I used to create, but it can be changed as you require. Always make a template with a scrap paper and then make the final one.

This envelope has two parts a box and a cover.

For the box
  • Take a card stock and trim it to 8.5" x 7.5" in size.
  • On the 8.5" side score .5" from both the ends.

  • On 7.5" side score at 3.5" and 4"

  • Cut at 3.5" and 4" up to the half inch mark.

  • Now fold at the score lines. I did not remove the small flaps since I thought it will give a perfect closure at the corners and strength.  
  • Fold and glue the side flaps.

The cover. 
  • Trim a card stock to 11" x 8"
  • On the 11" side score at 3 5/8", 4 1/8", 7 3/4" and 8 1/4"
  • The remaining 2 3/4" at the end will be the flap. 
  • On the flap end, I marked 1" down from the tip and drew an offset 'V' shape. You can create any shape for the flap. 
  • Decorate with pattern paper and embellishments.
  • I used magnets for closure. If you are using them, stick it before you paste your pattern paper.
Hope the method is clear. This is the first photo tutorial I have done. Suggestions are welcome so that I can improve. Do leave your comments below.

Thank you card...


Good day to you. Here I am with another card using Altenew 'Beautiful day' stamp set. I have used a pink and grey color combination inspired by the picture for August Inspiration challenge at Altenew blogspot.

I am addicted to water coloring and Zig Clean Color brush pens are my favorite.

I stamped the image on white CS and heat set it with clear embossing powder. Did a quick coloring with Zig clean color brush pens  and die cut the images. Inked the edges with shades of grey ink and splattered black, pink and yellow colors. Layered the card with grey CS and added few pink enamel dots to finish of the card.

This was a quick and simple card. See you next time with another interesting creation.

Masking and Stamp highlighting


Today I want to share few techniques I used in making this card. I was inspired by Kelly Latevola's post about rainbow coloring.

 I took two panels of white card stock of different sizes. I stuck the smaller panel temporarily and stamped the first flower image. I masked the flower and stamped the other images. I then removed the smaller panel and colored the back ground image in different shades of grey only where it will be visible. I colored the smaller panel with colors in a rainbow. I stamped the sentiment and highlighted it with white gel pen. Adhered the smaller panel to the base, matching the design and finished it off with few sequins.
I used Zig Clean Color brush pens to color the images.
The stamp is 'Zinnia' from Mudra stamps

Linking the card for the following challenge:

Hope you liked my card. Catch you with another interesting creation again.
Happy crafting!
