Dreams do come true!

Hello everyone!

How are you all doing? busy making Christmas and New year projects?

I haven't been doing much these days. I have started  making a A4 size album LONG ago. My plan had been to present it to my hubby for our first wedding anniversary. Whoever knows me might have guessed already- I didn't finish it yet!! I'm hoping to finish it and present it for our second anniversary! Better late than never, right? :-p

I have a page from the album to share... I love this page! I'll share the rest of them soon, I hope!

I'm submitting this to Lulupu's 'Cook it up' challenge. (I have used embellishments, die-cuts and PP) and Simon says stamp monday challenge.

The chevrons are die cuts. Thanks Khush for sending, finally used them here! :)

I have done some stamping on the PP. The hexagons, doilies, ink splatters are stamped. The sentiment is stamped with alphabet stamps, colored. I then added some glossy accents to it.

The bird is fussy cut from Mambi paper stack and the sticker embellishments are from a scrapbook kit bought from Lulupu last year. I'm glad I had saved them.

A couple of pictures of stamping done.

No! I'm not done yet! I have two more cards to share.

One is for CASE Study challenge and the other one is for....nothing! :p

I loved the colors in the inspiration picture.

 This is what I came up with. A birthday card. I big bold sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays stamp set and the smaller one is from IBS stamp set. Submitting this card to their Customer gallery contest.  http://joannamunster.com/customer-gallery/

I love the next card. The BG is stamped and then coloured all over with water colour pencils.  LOVE the effect!

All the stamps are from CAS-ual Fridays. The beautiful diecut leaf stem (or whatever! :p) is RAK from my buddy Pallavi. Thanks soooo much girl! :)

I'm done now!! see you soon! :)

you stole my heart!


A very quick post to share few cards that I recently made.

The first card is for CAS-ual Fridays, Colour Conceptions (used 'faux artist technique)), DCAM challenges.

The next card is for  'CAS(E) this sketch!'.

The stripes are stamped. The sentiment is heat embossed in three colours.

Here is another card I made using the sketch. But I am not sure if this follows the sketch. So I'm not submitting...

See you soon... Until then take care and have fun! :)

a bit of sunshine and gold!

Hello everyone!

I have two cards to share.

As soon as I saw the sketch on 'CAS(E) this sketch!' I had to make a card right away! Here it is...

The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn. The sun rays (yes they are!) are hand drawn and colored with distress inks using my Koi water brush.

The next card is for CASE study challenge. The team is honoring Cath the whole month. The inspiration picture is from one of the 'Oh my Moxie Fab' posts.

This is what I came up with. The BG is heat embossed in gold. The stamp I used is CAS-ual fridays 'Out loud' script stamp.The feathers are die cut and one of them is distressed with chipped sapphire ink and the other is misted with 'mist'tries. Sentiment is heat embossed too.

LOVE the gold embossed BG!

rainbows and butterflies!

Hey everyone!

Got some time to blog today. I have two cards to share.

Made this one for CAS-ual Fridays challenge (Create with 8).

I have used 8 colours in this card, stamped the sentiment 8 times and there are 8 tiny butterflies in 8 different colors! :)

The GORGEOUS script stamp is CAS-ual Fridays - 'Out loud' and the super fun sentiment is from 'Butterbows'.

The second card is for 'CAS(E) this sketch!' challenge. The fussy cutting isn't perfect but I love how this card turned out! I LOVE that sentiment! :)

Here's the sketch...
That is all for today. Hope to see you soon.

Take care friends! :)

A soaring eagle!

Two cards to share today.

I created a scene on the first one. Masked the CS with die cut clouds and inked. I LOVE the result. Though it's not perfect I still love it. I dabbed some grey ink to make the clouds look natural. I also absolutely LOVE the silhouette. Eagles are magnificent birds, they never fail to awe me!

Made this card for my hubby, he likes eagles too. :)

Combined Colour conceptions challenge (create a scene) and CAS-ual Fridays challenge (Create with 8 )

The awesome sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays stamps set- 'Frankly'
The silhouette stamp is from sweetnsassy stamps- Forest Silhouettes set

Here is another one. I made this one also for CAS-ual Fridays challenge.

I won't submit this as I feel something is definitely wrong with it! I think I don't like the PP strips at the top of the card or may be the black at the bottom of the panel. It might also be the colors. I never use so many colors on my cards, I used 8 colors here! This card to me, looks like a total disaster!:p But I did enjoy making this one...stamping, coloring and fussy cutting..I love those flowers...

The sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays 'Wonderful words' set
The flowers are from 'Truth is'

That is all for today. Happy Sunday everyone! Have a great day! :)

'I heart you'!


I want to share a card I made for 'CAS(E) this sketch' challenge. 

Made an interactive card that I learnt from one of the online card classes

Here is the sketch.

Pull the arrow upwards and the heart shows up!

This is how it looks when you pull the arrow all along the length.

Sorry for super bad pictures. No enough natural light today and I'm in a hurry to submit my card! :)
