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?

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..

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.

Namste, Welcome to the last challenge for 2022 at HLS die cutting challenge. For more details about the challenge visit blog here.

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.

Did like my attempt? let me know in the comments.

Thank you

Used spellbinders dies.

I made around 15 but still had shortage of few so i couldnt send to all i listed. Next year i should make even more.

Did you like these?

I forgot to take photo of all as i made as I didnt plan these well in advance.

Coloured floral card – HLS die cut challenge

Namaste, welcome to my blog. I made a simple floral card for the challenge. For more details about the challenge you need to visit blog.

I coloured a floral image with alcohol markers. I placed the die cut floral panel on a die cut background.

I am loving alcohol markers, i am bit sensitive to alcohol odour/fumes so I always avoided using them. So now i just sit in balcony with fan on while colouring.. 🤭

I love this cross stitch bacgrond from paper smooches.
Not perfect blending but will keep trying.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Hope to see you in challenge entries.
