PABD DT Post

Hello Frends!  Sharing second DT post for November.We are revisiting past releases this month.I had fun getting out all my PABD stamps out and deciding which to use ;)


November is coming to end and in no time we will be busy creating New year cards , I started ! Used the beautiful Floral bloom stamp for spotlight technique.


The sentiment is from Diwali greetings.Close up of water colored flower.

Next up is a Mixed Media card with a leftover background piece from previous card.


For this card I used Little Sparrow set from September ,used only the bird and good things form the set.The leaves are from Floral fantasy while the small flower bunch are from Floral Blooms.


The background has crackle texture paste through Grid stencil.


Last one is for a little girl celebrating her Birthday !


I mixed chalkboard look with some paper piecing on this card.The sentiment is from Floral fantasy.

When you feel blue ..


Hello friends ,most of you know that I love coloring and have been fortunate to be gifted with coloring supplies generously from friends. And when its time for 30 Day coloring challenge I am super excited !


Not the case this time..as hardly getting any time to color ,did manage to ink this beautiful big bloom from Woodware Crafts and color it .I loved the flower as it has lots of scope for water-coloring and the words are very encouraging ! So the color scheme is bright ..
For the card design I have cased this card by Joyce for Happy Little Stamper.

I stamped the flower twice once on card base and again on water-colored paper ,fussy cut it and foam mounted it on card base.A little dimension :)


Thank you for dropping by my blog Today !

PABD DT Post

** Second post of the day .Scroll down for HLS Guest Post.
Hello Friends ! I am posting after almost 15 Days ..I know I have missed lots of beautiful creations checking them slowly ..
Today I am sharing the cards made for PABD DT post.All of them (actually just two )are based on Current challenge which is Color Inspiration .Check the Awesome colors 


I loved the colors in the challenge photo so much that I used all of them on this card.


 Started by applying texture paste through Grid stencil on the card-base.I was inspired by my teammate Swapna's card while creating the water-colored panel.


Heat embossed the  butterfly die-cut and placed it in a glittery frame and finished off with few enamel dots .The sentiment is from Stringy Text.

Time out Challenges: #69 Give Thanks with Grateful heart
Crafts Galore Encore Challenge :  Anything goes





I have used three colors from the photo for this one.Looks familiar ? Yes a slight repetition of design from this card but with different supplies. Started by heat Embossing the floral blooms stamp and water coloring it. Rather than using them as it is I fussy cut them and arranged them on card .The card base has texture paste applied through grid stencil .


Used a negative from scallop rectangle die and coated it with loose glitter to jazz it up .Finished off with a heat embossed sentiment and sequins.

Guest designing for HLS




Hello Creative Friends , So Happy to share that I am over HLS blog as Guest Designer for Mixed Media Challenge.


The theme for this month is Alcohol inks,It was tricky as I didn't own any ! Mellissa Lane (challenge coordinator HLS) was so kind to share few video links and encouraged me to try making my own Alcohol inks.Thanks to Mellissa I learned something new and was exposed to so many interesting techniques.

Mixed Media Card with Alcohol Inks

Coming to my card,You must have already guessed,bg created using homemade Alcohol inks.

Mixed Media Card with Alcohol Inks
 I tried one more thing ,texture paste on acetate.Didn't want to cover it up so created a small embellishment cluster with die-cut leaves and a handmade rose.
