Prehistoric...

Hello everyone!

Hope you are all doing well... I have been quite busy on the personal front for the past couple of weeks and couldn't blog.

I have a bunch of cards to share with you but first, I will share a couple of cards that feature Neat and Tangled 'Prehistoric' stamp set. The adorable stamp set was illustrated by Elena Roussakis. I love her designs! I think I have crush on all her illustrations! :D

Here are my cards...

They are very simple to make. I stamped a bunch of images on Strathmore bristol smooth cardstock and colored them with my Zig markers and fussy cut them all.

Made two cards out of all the images that I colored. :)




Close ups...




I hope you like my cards... see you soon..

Floral CAS card...

Hello lovely people!

A quick post to share a card I made for the 'CAS(E) this sketch' challenge.

Here is the fantastic sketch that I just had to try.


Here is my take on it...


I went quite literal with the sketch. I l9ve how the flower pops up. I intentionally didn't add a black sentiment strip as I felt it would dominate my single flower.

I added clear sequins for the 'dots' in the sketch.

A close up...

Hope you like the card...

Thanks for visiting!

You are...

Hello!

A very quick post to share a card that I made for Altenew's May inspiration challenge.

Here is my take on the inspiration picture. I stamped images from Peony Scrolls stamp set on Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock and coloured them with Zig markers.

I took time to figure out the arrangement (as always! :))

I added a heat embossed sentiment. I also added interest to the design by repeatedly stamping the sentiment in pale pink colour. I also added some clear sequins.


Here is a close up of the sentiment strip coated with Wink of Stella. Can you see the shimmer?


One more close up of the floral arrangement.


Supplies used-
Peony scrolls stamp set.
You are stamp set for sentiment.

Now for a little secret. ;) Initially, when I finished creating this card, it didn't look like the one I have just shown here. It looked like this...



After I had finished making the above card for the challenge, I realised that the green in the challenge picture and the green on my card are completely different. So, I stamped a bunch of leaves again and coloured them in a different green to match the inspiration picture. Then adhered the newly fussu cut images exactly on the previously adhered leaves. I knew nobody would be able to make it out. ;) I also added more leaves to balance the design.

See you soon tommorrow with an exciting post. :)

Hugs..
Sindhu.

Playful pups- take two.

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekebd and a pleasant monday too...

As mentioned in my earlier post, I am here to share a card I made on order. It is a fancy fold card. 


I used HoneyBee Stamps 'Playful pups' stamp set and patterned papers from Simple Stories. I had cut the Sun from one of the patterned papers. I also used the Grassy Hills dies from MFT.

I love how the front of the card turned out. Watch the video below to see the surprise element inside the card. :)




Thanks for stopping by!

See you soon...

Bye!

My feelings for you are strong!

Hi everyone! I want to share a very quick card I made a couple of days ago for Little Tangles challenge.

 This is a very simple card. First, I stamped the image on a piece of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock and coloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.


I sponged ink through a Winnie and Walter stencil on the card base and stuck the fussy cut image on the background. I stamped the sentiment to finish the card. So simple, isn't it? :) But I did follow the Rule of Thirds while making the card. These days I seem to be more inclined to use that rule on my cards. But I don't always follow it, especially when I feel that it is going to take off fun in the intended design. Many a time it is all about enjoying than making something look correct, right?



Anyway, that is it for today morning. ;) See you later in the day with one more card.

Have a pleasant Monday!
Hugs...

Supplies used-
Big Bold Brew stamp set from Neat and Tangled
'Do you see what I see' screening from Winnie and Walter. (That name makes me smile everytime!)
Zig markers for colouring.
Hero arts ink for sponging ink through the stencil.
