ICR Blog Hop - Emboss Me Anything Wet or Dry

After a long break, I planned to partcipate in a blog hop....All the DTs have excellent entries for the blog hop and I thoroughly enjoyed hopping all over their blogs...

Below is my card project entery for the ICR blog hop. The theme is : Emboss me anything - wet or dry.


My favourite season of the year is Christmas and new year. One of the prime reason is my hubby's birthday also falls in December :) So I decided to incorporate the same joyous theme in my card. 

I have used both the techniques of Embossing - wet and dry, in my card. The white cs is embossed with Darice Dotted embossing folder. The red poinsettia is made from Cherry Lynn Poinsettia Strip die. The leaves are die cut too. For the sentiment, I first took the white cs and die cut it using Spellbinders Nestabilities Majestic Elements. After that I stamped the sentiment of Merry Christmas(Hero Arts) using VersaMark Dazzle and embossed it with Wow's green embossing powder. The glittery look of the sentiments goes perfect with the Christmas season. I took a organza matching red ribbon and tied it on the embossed white cs.  The Christmas bells are die cut using Cottage Cutz Bells die, and then I have used glossy accents on it to give a shine...
I took the red cs and adhered the white embossed cs on it using the double side tape to give it some dimensions. The whole red cs is attached to the white card base with the double sided tape.

I hope you liked my card... I would like to know your view on that.

ICR Water Color Link Party - Blog Hop


ICR has a very special place in my heart since my so many *1st* crafting things had started with it... i.e. my first ever meet with crafty people, my first ever crafting workshop, my 1st quilling n card making workshops, my first ever registered crafty blog etc etc.... And yes, today my first ever blog hop participation.....

Today I am here to show you my entry for  the ongoing ICR water color link party blog hop.... My take is very simple and related to the coming season of joy n cheers....

I have stamped the fireworks using Hero Arts Fireworks stamp... I made use of masking technique into that. The ornate and the "Holiday Cheer" are from Just Rite Holiday Cheers Ornaments Stamp set. I have gold embossed it first and then colored it with distress inks Festive Berries and Mustard Seed. Then I stamped the "Let Your Light Shine" from the Heidiswapps stamp set. 

As you know, none of my cards are complete without few blings, so I added few of them....

Yes, I am a beginner into this crafting world and learning new techniques day by day....This is my very first trial at Gold Embossing and Water Coloring with DIs.  All negative and positive reviews are welcome.....

ATC August 2015 @ ATC Club India 

This is my take on August 2015 swap at ATC Club India. The theme was to create monochromatic ATC. I took white as my base color and black as mono color with it.

I have made it very simple by creating the background with Spellbinders background creating dies. The feathers look so lovely and are gifted by my lovely sis Shraddha. As I have always told, my no project or card is complete without adding blings so I had added the two white blingies to the stamped center.

   I hope you like it. If yes, then please feel free to comment here. Thanks for dropping by.

Generation Stamping + Masking

Generation Stamping + Masking


Today I had tried my hands on generation stamping + masking for the first time. Below is the card images.

I took a white card base and then applied the Mustard Seeds distess ink on it. After that I did generation stamping of the leaves using the Penny Black Petal Party stamp set. For the leaves I made use of again Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint and  Mowed Laws disress inks. The lowest stamping of leaves are the 1st generation stamping, above that there is 2nd generation of stamping and then the top row is 3rd generaion stamping.

The beautiful flowers are the main focal point of my card. To make them I stamped my the most favourite Hero Arts Flower, distressed them using Wild Honey and then fussy cut them. The center of the flowers are made of a glitter balls and matching blings. The leaves are again fussy cut. To give dimentsion to the card, I have made use of the double sided tape.

For the lower layer, I have die cut the boarders using Sizzix boarder die, applied the Mowed Lawn distress ink and then glued down. For the upper layer, I took a simple satin bottle green ribbon and adhered it.

The sentiment is made of Spellbinders Magical Elements Die set and the sentiment is again from Penny Black Petal Party Stamp set, stamped using Archieval Jet Black ink. My cards are incomplete without a bling on them and so I kind of find my way of using them anyway into my work :) so I have added them onto the 4 corners of my sentiment :):):)

I hope you like the card.... I am linking the card to the  
Sketch Challenge 2015 on the A Blog Named Hero.

Vintage Theme ATC

I had participated in ATC India Club Swap for the month of June. The theme was Vintage. Initially I was very much nervous about creating an ATC on this theme because I had never tried my hands on this theme. I tried many combinations and templates and then finally decided to go for this. I was happy and content with the final outcome, may be it's not up-to the mark but still I am happy that I tried my best. And what's more, my partner liked it too...

The supplies which are used :

- Pattern paper from Itsy Bitsy
- Tim Holtz Vinatge Photo Distress Ink
- Sentiment stamped from Penny Black Petal Party Stamp Set
- Used Spellbinders Magical Elements die to create the base of the sentiment
- Blings from local store.

I hope you like it. Don't forget to write your views on it.
Thanks for coming over.

Swap : "Frame Your Quote"


I had participated in the swap organized by our very own and amazing group Swap Central India. The blog is owned by 3 Crafty people, Khushboo, Saumya and Tejal....
This blog is created so that all the crafters can share the joy of swapping their handmade items and craft supplies. 

The topic of the swap was : "Frame Your Quote".  The rules of the swap were as below:

When you sign up, send an email with your postal address and favorite quote that you would love to hang in your room. That quote will be sent to your partner and your will get a quote from your partner to be worked upon.
It made no sense for us to send you a quote that someone else likes...so we want you to email your favorite quote to us, so it actually resonates with you.
What to do with the Quote
You have to create an A4 size page using that quote as the highlight. Create something like an Art journal page. No Canvas please. Heavy weight CS or 300gsm Watercolor paper or thicker.
It is not necessary to use mixed media. You can simply use inks and stamps to create the page too. If you like doing mixed media, you can do that too. You can use any supplies that you have...no restrictions. 

The quote which I got from my partner Renuka Bindu was : "This heart of mine was made to travel this world"...

And my take on that is :

  • I have distressed the plain white paper with the inks: Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick,   Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey & Tumbled Glass.
  • The buildings are hand cut from one of the patterned paper, the road is also hand cut from a glittered black and yellow paper.
  • The Eiffel Tower, the world globe, "fun", "Happy time" etc are stamped with Itsy Bitsy travel clear stamp
  • The airplane, lil passport, Italy tickets, glares and brown bag are all hand crafted sticker and again from Itsy Bitsy
  • The cloud chipboard is also distressed with Peeled Pain DI. n it's a local buy. 
  • The lil doll and its pink bag is a goodie which kids get from kinder-joy chocolate :) Yes, I got it from my son's kinder-joy :)
  • The message is printed white paper which are distressed with Peacock Feathers & Olive Green. 
  • The wooden block is customized with the engraved word "Travel" within it, it has crystals in its rear portion. I have ordered it from a local gift shop.

Its a literally my first trial on distress inks. Yes, there are few points where I had to be more patient...but still I have given my best....Do let me know your views on it.....
