Layered peony for AAA #48

Namaste, welcome to my blog, for new challenge at AAA birthday challenge. Do visit challenge blog for more inspiration here.

I made two birthday cards using Altenew layering dies. I am not sure of the colour combination as i was just using my scraps. For background i used Altenew stencil and embossing paste.

What you think of my colour combination? Is it fine or i should have used other colours?

Thank you for visiting and please do join the challenge.

Chemistry with MFT for HLS water colour challenge – April 23

Namaste, welcome to my blog for April 23 water colour challenge. The theme of the challenge is Die cut. I actually wanted to use this cute set so made 2 cards. For more information on challenge and rules please visit here.

I loved these cute images from MFT and i coloured them with Zig markers. I wanted to keep the card simple with minimal layers. Used co-ordinating card base and didtress inks to blend on front panel. Sentiments are from Unenviable chemistry, i used essential speech bubble die for sentiments.

I also added few die cuts and stamped few images on the card front for texture and interest.

Thank you for visiting.. Let me know which one you liked among the two..

Frames for HLS die cut challenge- 03/2023

Namaste, welcome back to HLS die cut challenges after 2 month break. Did you miss the challenges? I did to some extent but enjoyed break too. So now coming back to work, the challenge is to make anything with die cuts. For more inspiration and details visit the challenge blog here.

I recently attended an event in my place so i made a few gifting items along cards for the pop up shop. It was my first time to participate in such event. It was a good learning in the form of what ppl looking for and the main thing what prices they are ready to pay?

Its really difficult to please people with anything with Paper, i was so shocked when everyone who bought cards asked me “Why have you not written anything inside?”. I was tired explaining whats the meaning of HANDMADE card and HANDWRITTEN message.

When i started card making with embroidered art pieces i would sit and make my own envelope from scratvh. Everything used to have personal touch. Now people are so busy or I can say lost the creativity of writing that they dont even want to write their name at the end of the card.

Leave it comig back to my post. I used Spellbinders dies to make these simple wall decor items. I made 10, sold 5 and remaining 5 i turned them into cards again.

Which colour combination you liked the most? My personal favourites being last 2, i thought they will be sold first but they didnt get sell.. 😉

Thank you so much for joining in..

Mono chrome birthday – #47 AAA birthday

Namaste, welcome to new challenge at AAA Birthday, Its stripes and dots. I made 2 mono chrome cards for the challenge. For more details and inspiration from my team members do visit here.

I was so confused while making these cards. I took put all pattern papers i am hoarding but nothing was striking to my mind. So i just picked a stencil from SSS and made a panel with embossing paste. Wanted to use entire panel because if any stripe remains I cant throw it and it will bug my mind till i use so i made two similar looking cards.

Thank you so much for visiting.. Which is your favorite among these..?

Hls water colour challenge – March 2023

Namaste, welcome to my blog. We at HLS challenges had 2 months vacation and now we are back with new challenges. This month its Anything goes- Wings, for more details about challenge you can visit link.

Previously i coloured alot of images. I am not a person who keeps elements ready and make as and when needed. It feels too much for me and drains my creativity. But after becoming mother my son taught me its BETTER TO BE READY THAN BEING SORRY. So i stamp and colour images whenever possible.

And for 2023 i have decided to make atleast 2 cards instead of making one. So its a good way to try 2 designs with similar elements. So to make these cards i just had to arrange elements as everything was ready.

Which card you liked? I loved the brightness of these cards. I so struggle with keeping everything white.

Birthday cards #46 AAA BIRTHDAY

Namaste, welcome to my space and i am here to share my cards for AAA BIRTHDAY challenge for february. Please make note that AAA birthday challenge is now monthly challenge it starts on 1st of the month. The theme is to use stencil. For more details visit here.

I literally struggled to make tjesecards. My plan was to ink blend but most of my inkpads are dry so i couldnt as i didnt get the right colour combination i wanted. So at the end i used embossing paste and embossing powder to make my card front.

I used wow embossing powders for the cards. Btw i have those die cut pieces which for sure you will see son in my posts on Instagram. @thedreampages1021

After joining AAA BIRTHDAY challenges i have kept few birthday sets in my reach so i can grab them quickly while making cards.. Thats why you see few sentiments again and again..

Hope you liked my cards, let me know which colour combination you liked. I hope you will join us at AAA BIRTHDAY challenges. Stay safe and keep crafting.

Thank you

CAS birthday card AAA #45

Namaste, welcome to my blog. Its new calendar year and new challenge at AAA birthday challenge. The theme of the challenge is Anything goes with birthday theme. For more details visit blog here.

Ink blending was always my favourite technique. But right now all my ink pads are dry so i cant use them. Its story of every year so i stopped reinking them. But for the first challenge of the calendar year so I ink blended small piece of paper and die cut it to make my card center and stamped a small sentiment which fits perfectly in this small space.

I dry embossed the card panel and added the ink blended piece on card front. For interest i used silver thread behind the sentiment and few enamel dots.

Here is my card

Thank you for visiting.

For this post I wanted to make something special. I made this card for a special person in my life now thats Katraina Folkman. She is an influencer, life couch. She really changed my life in better way. Coming to my post, I used many spellbinders dies and creative expressions die for the card. The KALASH die is from Dress my craft.

I know many artist who make more gorgeous cards than this but this card blew my mind and filled me with confidence that i can make such layered cards too.
