One-layered Birthday card

Heyy friends !!

Here's wishing you all a merry and joyous Christmas !! I'm sure most of you must be busy enjoying the holidays with your near and dear ones :)

I'm quickly sharing a card I made yesterday. It's a one-layered , very clean and simple card I made for my grandmother who will be celebrating her birthday on the 31st of this month. :)  I hope she likes it.

Here's the card (please click on the image to view it in it's original size and best quality):--

So, I started off by stamping three floral images on the folded card base, 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 in size. Stamped the same images thrice on a piece of masking tape, fussy cut these and used them for masking the stamped images on the card base. After masking, sponged some distress inks around them to create a sweet little garden scenery. Then, removed the masks off the flowers and water coloured them using distress inks. The stem and the tiny leaves were hand drawn.
Finally, stamped the birthday sentiment and added a white pearl each in the centre of the flowers to add some interest to this CAS one-layered card.

That's it. Quick. Clean. Simple. Pretty. Don't you think? :)

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a beautiful day !

Quilled Teddy And a Card

Hello Friends !!
How are ya'll doing?  Well, I'm on a card making spree these days but just couldn't make time to blog about them. Planning to share them all this week.

I tried my hands at making this 3D quilled teddy last month. Here it is ;--

Then I felt that this cuddly little thing needed a home so that it doesn't get lost. So, it got it's home on a newborn baby girl card. :) Here's how it looks now-

 I used 5 mm pink quilling strips to make it, and it took me about 4-5 hours divided over 3 days to complete it. Maximum time went into cutting the fringe as fine as possible. Rolling and assembling was comparatively simpler.

So, how do you like the card ? :)

You're The Coolest

Hello, Again ! :D

I don't remember the last time I posted one post after the another this quick, last night I shared this card and here I am back with another card today, feeling good to be able to get my blogging back on track after long.. :P
 And I made this inspired by the current challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch#151

Here's the card:-
I tried to create the whole scene to go with the 'Cool' sentiment. The stamps are from My Favorite Things- Penguins in Paradise. Love the cute images in this set :)

The images were watercoloured using faber castell pencils( a long way to go when it comes to colouring my images ) , fussy cut them and mouted them over the sponged scene.

So, how do you like it ?

Floral CAS card

Hello, friends !

Hope you all are doing well.

Sharing a card that I made last month but didn't share it on my blog yet.


To make this one,
  • I stamped the floral images from the Wplus 9 stamp set-- pretty little peonies, on a 5 by 5 inches card panel.
  • Stamped the same images on another piece of scratch card stock, fussy cut them and mounted them over the previously stamped images, using some 3d foam adhesive. This gives a nice dimntion to the focal image.
  • Then stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant stamp set- true friends.
  • Cut out small pieces of silver glitter washi and attached these underneath the card panel to add an interesting add-on to the whole design.
  • Finally,added the coloured pearls and mounted the panel on a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 sized card base.
I would love to get your feedback on this card. :)

Thanks for supporting me with your visits and comments on my blog.

3D Quilled Snowman

Hi Friends !

After a long break for a month full of travelling and family get-togethers, I'm relieved to be back doing what I love the most. Mojo does hit a low after such a long break but I realised that if I want to get my crafting back on track, I should just start. And so I did .

As a part of my DT post for Indian Quilling Challenge#22, where the theme for the months of november and december is 'Anything goes', here's what I've come up with --

Can you recognize him ? Well, he's the very popular and cute character,Olaf-the snowman, from the English animated movie 'Frozen' . ;)

Olaf--3D quilling

So, I used 5 mm width of white colored quilling strips to make the body using the 3-dimensional quilling technique. He stands approximately 3 inches tall.

Isn't he cute? And so apt for the festive month of December !

I hope my post inspires you in some way to come up with something quilled for this challenge. Link up your entries here .

Update :-- I'm linking this up to the amazing monthly challenge by Susan on the blog 'Just Keep On Creating' where the theme is 'Anything Goes'.
