Embossed Birthday Card

Hi everyone!! Today I am sharing an embossed card made using Penny Black Blissful Cling Stamp. I had so much fun creating this card. It is such a joy seeing that embossed piece come to life when you heat it. I took a watercolor paper and stamped the design using Versamark embossing ink. Then I embossed it with Ranger Gold embossing powder. 

I colored the card using distress inks - Milled Lavendar, Dusty Concord, Shabby Shutters & Forest Moss. The sentiment was embossed on green vellum and adhered to the card front. For the final touch, I added a few sequins and purple rhinestones.

Handmade Diwali Card 1 - 2015

Hi everyone!! Started with a few Diwali cards. This is the first card that I made. I am happy with the color combo and the overall look is what I had envisaged. 

Here's a peek at my card... I started by embossing the background with collage clay and a stencil from Craftslane. Then I colored it with distress inks - Peacock Feathers, Shabby Shutters and Forest Moss. The colorful pattern paper is a scrap piece from a very old card. Then started the decoration with peacock. The mdf peacock is from Itsy Bitsy. I colored it with gold acrylic paint and embellished with loads of rhinestones. Added a few more elements like the skeleton leaves in gold, some punched leaves & mdf leaves. At last, I added the sentiment which is a sticker from Pie Lane and finished the look with a golden thread and sequins and rhinestones here and there....

And the full look......

Do let me know what you think of this card!!

Ikebana Inspired Card

Hello everyone!! This card is made using WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals stamp set. The sentiment is from WRMK stamp set and the flower pot is from a Micia stamp set.

I have arranged the flowers in an Ikebana style floral arrangement. First I gold embossed the background with a WRMK bee hive stamp set and lightly watercolored it with Broken China and Shabby Shutters distress inks. Then I stamped and fussy cut all the pretty flowers and leaves and arranged them at two points on the card creating a link between them.

Thanks for visiting!

Baby Name Monogram

Hello! This post is about a Monogram I made for a baby girl. The baby's name is Shrunal, and hence the S shaped monogram. I used a pretty pattern paper to cover the cardboard 'S' shape and then embellished it with flowers, chipboard elements, a handmade heart embellishment, some die-cuts, etc.

I used alphabet stickers for the baby name and stuck it in the form of a filmstrip.

Here is a quick look at the video of the monogram.

Thanks for coming over at my blog!

One Stamp Three Cards

Hello there! Today I am sharing not one but three cards made using the Hero Arts Cling Stamp - Large Flower Background. This is one of those stamps, with which you fall in love instantly and you just want to own and play with it. I saw a few cards made using this stamp while browsing the net one day, and ordered this stamp right away. It's been lying with me for a while, and finally I got a chance to play with it.

I am a very amateur stamper, but I had lot of fun making these cards. While I was embossing the first card, I thought why not emboss more pieces at once. I find this an easy way to make card sets or a batch of cards in one go.

I embossed two cards with Ranger super fine white embossing powder and the third one with Ranger Gold embossing powder. Then I colored them with distress inks. The birthday sentiments are from a stamp company called Flonz Craft. The Just for you sentiment is from TPC - Whimsy Greetings.
