Be Happy - Rainbow leaves

Sharing a CAS card using a very tiny stamp from a stamp set. Many a times we ignore the smaller stamps in a set, forgetting the fact that these are great for making backgrounds. I love using these on my cards. 

For this card, I have used the smaller leaf stamp from the Botanical love stamp set by Create a Smile. Though this time, I used it to create the focal image. 

Stamped the leaves and coloured with zig markers. I lightly drew a wavy line to connect all the leaves together. Stamped the sentiment. Popped up the panel on a Kraft card base. 
I didn't want the focus to shift from the image, so haven't used any embellishments.

Hello friend

Hi friends...
I am back at the blog today sharing a mini 4"x4" notecard. 
I challenged myself to make a card using the pink and teal colour combo. I saw my friend Ishani shared a card with these colours. 

So after a lot of struggle, I came up with this card. 

The background stripes are freehand brush strokes using distress ink. The flowers and the sentiment are by Pretty pink posh. 

Few more images.

Masculine card!

I always find myself at a loss when I plan to make a Masculine card. 
It's really difficult to decide what elements to include and what not to.

When I saw the Masculine theme over at Create a smile challenges, I thought of giving it a try. I have only one stamp set from their collection currently. I have ordered a couple more, but they haven't reached me yet. 
So, I decided to use my existing stamp i.e. Botanical Love, to make this masculine card. 

I made this CAS style card for the challenge.
Keeping the theme in my mind, I kept all the elements in grey, brown and black coloured. I added some colour in the form of the background paper and a contrasting tiny button on the card. Added few enamel dots to balance the colour play. 

Your feedback is always appreciated!

Welcome Back to school!

Hi friends!
With every alternate challenge having the theme as "Back to School", I had to make a card for it. 
I made this card using various supplies from my stash.

I die-cut a lot of elements using dies by various brands.
The Alphabets, numbers and symbols are by MFT.
The globe and the books with an apple are by Provo Craft.

Die-cut a rectangle from a black cardstock. Wrote the sentiment using a white 3D liner. Brushed some powder over the paper to get the blackboard look. Adhered all the die-cuts to the rectangle. 
Stamped some script on a Kraft card base. Foam-mounted the rectangle over the card base.

You can always lean on me!

Hi friends!
After a long-time planning, today I managed to make this CAS card for the Uniko's current challenge. 
I had downloaded these pretty floral freebies by Uniko for a very long time. I was waiting for an opportunity to make a card out of these. 

I finally put one of them to good use.

Here's my card!

I have used the Spring Botanical Cosmos digital image by Uniko. You can find the freebies here. Thank you Beverly for this awesome digis. 
I printed the image on a watercolour paper, coloured it with Zig markers and cut around the frame. Foam mounted it on a white card base. Stamped the sentiment and mounted it on the card. 
I wanted to keep this card minimal, so haven't used any embellishments. 

Another picture!

Thank you for stopping by!
Hope you like my card!

Time-out challenge reminder

Hi friends!
I am honoured to be Guest-designing for Time-out Challenges for their current challenge. 
I am back at the blog today, with a card to remind and inspire you for the challenge. 
Challenge theme is - Bright!

Here's my card for the same!

I have used the Read all about it stamp set by Jane's Doodles. I stamped the image on a watercolour paper. Drew the bulb over the image. Coloured it with Zig markers and fussy cut the image along with the bulb. On a white card panel, I printed the sentiment. Die-cut this panel using a stitched rectangle die. On a Kraft card base, I adhered some pattern paper strips in a slant fashion and mounted the Stitched rectangle over it. Adhered the image to the panel. Lastly, added a few enamel dots to complete my card.

Hope my card inspired you to participate in the challenge.
Thank you for stopping by!

Have a bright day❤️

Hello friends!
I am super honoured to be Guest designing at Time-out challenges
I love their challenges and have been always participating in them. So, when Sandie offered me the Guest designing spot, I jumped at it. Thank you so much, Sandie!!

The theme for the current challenge is "Bright"

Here's my take on the challenge!

On a white card, I stencilled the sun rays using distress ink. I die-cut a circle using yellow textured cardstock. Printed the sentiment and cut it into a strip. On a grey card base, I mounted the stencilled panel using foam tape. Adhered the sun to the panel. Foam mounted the sentiment strip across the sun. Lastly, added two enamel dots.

Few more pics.

Looking forward to your take on the current challenge theme.
Thank you for stopping by!

Thanks (Stripes)

Hi friends...
Here's a card, I made for the current I love Math challenge, where the theme is Stripes.

I began by adding colorful washi tape strips on a white card. On another white card, I die cut an oval window. Adhered this so that it overlooks the washi tape paper. 
Foam mounted this panel on a yellow card base.
 Added a heat embossed sentiment and few sequins to complete the card.

Take your time to smile...

Hi friends!
I am so excited to share a card made using my very first stamp set by Create-a-smile called Botanical love. I recently bought this stamp set. 
I used the floral image from the set to make this card for the ongoing sketch challenge.

I cut three squares from a watercolour paper, of different sizes each. I heat-embossed the floral images randomly on each square using black embossing powder. I wasn't very particular about stamping the design perfectly. I wanted a little wild look to it. After heat-setting, I coloured the images using Zig clean markers and an aqua brush. Matted these squares with a black cardstock. On a Soft blue card base, I stamped the sentiment from the same set, using Versafine Onyx black. 
Adhered the topmost square flat on the card base. Mounted the other two, using foam tape, overlapping each other. Lastly, added a few pearl drops to complete the card. 

Thank you for stopping by!

I think you are...

Hi friends...
I recently bought my first stamp set called Mon Ami by CASual Fridays. 
And here's my first card using this set. 

When I saw the current challenge theme at CASual Fridays (stamp a pattern), I decided to put my new set to use. 
I took the smaller flower image and stamped it repeatedly on a white card using grey ink. Trimmed the panel and foam mounted it on a yellow card base. 
I stamped the larger image on a watercolour paper and colored using Zig markers. Fussy cut the image.
On a piece of vellum, I heat embossed the sentiment using black Embossing powder. 
Adhered it to the card base and added the floral image using liquid glue over the vellum.

Thank you for stopping by.

Little Birdie Bird cage!!

Hi friends.

Did you check out the amazing range of Intricate thin cut dies, recently launched by Little Birdie Crafts/Itsy Bitsy? I am sure you all must have already seen them all and are drooling over them just like I am. Check out the reveal video out here.

All these dies are awesome with some beautiful and fresh new designs. 
These dies are so versatile that you can include them in any kind of your projects. The dies are very detailed and they just cut like butter in one go.

Today, I am sharing three cards made using the Bird Cage die set from this new release.

Here's a look at my cards!


A simple CAS card. I used a Golden die-cut cage, layered it with few white die-cuts. Adhered it on a white card with a twine at the top. 
Heat-embossed the sentiment in gold. Die-cut few flowers and leaves. 
Embossed and layered 2-3 flowers together with a pearl in the centre. 
Arranged and adhered the flowers to the Cage. Foam mounted this on a Kraft card base.


This is a shaker card. I die-cut the cage in the centre of a card panel. Added acetate from the backside and layered the positive of the cage from the front side. Adding double tape around the panel, I made a window to put the shaker elements. Used Silver coloured shakers.  I stamped, coloured and fussy cut one bird from the Birds stamp set. 
Stamped the sentiment. Die-cut the flowers and leaves. 
Layered the coloured flowers with white in between and pearl on top. 
Arranged and adhered the arrangement to the card. Lastly, added a few pearl drops.


For this card, I die-cut lots of flowers first in white paper and secondly in a thin white tissue-type paper. 
I wanted to have a dreamy and a flowing look to this card, so I used lots of white flowers. On a white card base, adhered a panel of the purple paper from the Aquarelle paper pack. Die-cut the cage multiple times from a white card. Layered it on. Adhered the cage with a twine to the card. Filled the in-between gaps of the cage with Glossy Accents. This gives is a glossy finish and a stained glass look. 
Arranged and adhered the flowers to the card. Added few clear drops. 
Stamped the sentiment on a strip and mounted it on the card.
  This card looks very beautiful in actual, sadly the picture is not able to capture the beauty neatly :(

All my cards together!

Supplies used -
Bird Cage thin cut dies.
Love sentiments stamp set (All sentiments)

That brings us to the end of this long post. Thank you for being there till the end.
Hope you enjoyed and loved the cards as much as I enjoyed making them.
