Zig Zag fold Card with Sizzix flowers

Friday, 18 August 2017

I feel so good to be able to find time for blogging again. I realised that the reason why I kept pushing away blogging was my sluggish laptop I've been using since past five years. Actually, it was a netbook (a smaller version of laptop) with 1 GB RAM. Poor thing couldn't take too much of heavy pictures and files. Of late, editing a simple photo became a 1 hour task !! I simply couldn't afford 2-3 hours of writing one blogpost and uploading it and hence blogging took a backseat. My husband suggested me a few times to get a new laptop, but I kept procrastinating it, until I couldn't take it any more! Now I got a new laptop and I wish I had bought it before, it would have saved me so much time and frustration ;)
Hoping to visit your blogs more regularly now.

Enough of ranting. :P
 I wish to share a Zig Zag-fold card I made a few days ago featuring Sizzix Framelits Folk flower stamp and die set.



That script background was stamped (Impression Obsession -French Script background stamp) using versamark ink and clear embossed to give a subtle look to the background.
I had received a couple of stamp and coordinating die sets in my Sizzix kit last month. This one's called Folk flower and it is a beautifully detailed stamp. The pack contains a coordinated floral die that gives a perfectly clean edge with a margin of 1mm around the stamp. It contains a leaf die as well.
The florals were coloured using Zig clean color brush pens.

Looks quite dramatic !Would love to know your views about this card.

5-minute Upcycling Idea

Tuesday, 15 August 2017

Hello  !!

Wishing all my fellow Indian bloggers, crafters and readers a very happy Independence Day. Our country has a huge amount of talent, much more than we realize and may we keep striving to build a developed and highly efficient country.

Thanks to the long weekend here, I got a chance to attend to my blog which is being neglected for quite a while now.

I'm sharing a simple and fun up-cycling idea today with the help of Sizzix dies.

I had this brown paper shopping bag in my cupboard which I had saved for reusing it for shopping or gift packaging purposes. But it looked rather dull and plain and I decided to give it a little makeover, just to add a fun, colourful touch to it.



This makeover took me just 5-minutes. Now I'm on a lookout for more stuff at home that need a creative makeover ;)

Watercoloured Greetings

Hello again !
This is my second post for the day. To check out the previous post, please click HERE.

I'm kind of hooked to watercolouring these days. I'm watching a lot of videos on YouTube of various watercolouring artists working on their process and learning along the way. It's so much fun and inspiring too ! I'm still on the intermediate levels as of now and I am truly enjoying exploring this medium and making some cards along the way.

Here are some of the cards I made in the past few days by watercolouring. Hope you like my attempts and  please feel free to drop in any suggestions, tips or any feedback on my work. I'm still new so it would be helpful :)








Here are the links to the video tutorials that I got inspired from -

Summer-themed Cards With Sizzix Dies and Giveaway Winner

Hello bloggers and friends!

I'm back with a couple of cards I made using the Chapter 3 release die set from Sizzix Lifestyle-- Under the Sea. It's a lovely die set designed by Katie Skilton and it contains a total of 14 dies which can be mixed and matched to create some cute summer-themed or holiday-themed cards.


The colouring and the background building on both the cards is done with the help of Zig clean color marker pens. The sentiment in the above card is from My Favorite Things- Penguins in Paradise stamp set, whereas in the card beow, it's hand-written. I also doodled around the edges of the coloured die cuts to add some interest.


I'm linking this above card to :-
