My sunshine..

Hi everyone!

I'm back again with another card I made for Little Tangles Challenge- 82. The theme is 'Masking'.

 Here is my card...

This is how I made it...

--- Placed the 'rice paddies' stencil om the card base and masked everything elsw except a horizontal strip in the centre.
--- Then, I removed it and repeated on the top and bottom. The result is a fun striped masked background.
--- I adhered everything together on the card base.


Here are a couple of close ups.


The girl on that flamingo floatie is so adorable!


Supplies used-
Neat and Tangled 'Rice paddies' stencil, 'Flamingo floatie' and 'Beach day' stamp sets.

My favorite...

Hi everyone! 

I have been struggling a bit to post here on my blog. I hardly get time to create these days, let alone posting about the creations! 

Here are a few cards that I made long ago but hadn't shared here.



Here is the second one. Both are pretty simple to make. On this card, I did some off-set stamping for the sentiment to give a 3D look to it.





I added some pretty patterned paper on the third one to give it a different look.


I used Pretty Pink Posh 'friends forever' stamp set for all the images. Also used MFT dies and a sentiment stamp sets.

I hope you like the cards ..

See you again with more. :)

Card for little tangles challenge-81. (Color combo)

Hello everyone!

How have you all been? It has been a while since I have posted here. I have so many cards to share but haven't been getting much time to post here.

I made a card today to participate in the Little Tangles challenge. The inspiration picture is too sweet to let it pass by.


I used Punchinella die on my card. I LOVE this die! I die cut a piece of cardstock and sponged five different inks on it (the green is a combination of blue abd yellow... so didn't use a separate colour for it).

I used Altenew dye inks. Will mention the names at the end of the post. The sentiment and the image are from the 'Calathea' stamp set. 

Here are a couple of close ups.



I hope you like the card... see you soon...

Inks used
Altenew Rose Quartz, Puffy heart, Purple wine, Ocean waves, Warm sunshine.

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!

Hugs...

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.

Floral cards- country blooms

Hello!

It has been more than a week since I last blogged. I have been busy with a few orders for personalised cards and I was having a lot of fun. I hope to share them soon as they are SO much fun. :)

For now, I have a couple of floral cards to share.  I used Honeybee Stamps 'Country blooms' stamp set to make two variations.

Here they are...

For the first card, I stamped a few images from the 'country blooms' set and fussy cut them out. Then on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock,  I sponged some dye inks in rainbow colors.  Then, arranged the flowers on the inked panel. Finished the card with some ink splatters and the die cut sentment.


Here are some close up pictures.



The next is more soft looking as I used a very light pink to stamp the background. I used the same stamp set. I randomly atamped the background and assembled the card. I added glitter paper to add interest to otherwise a very simple card.


 A close up...



Hope you like the cards... will be back soon with more. :)

Take care.
