Father's Day Cards

Hello Friends ,
With fathers day round the corner here are cards that I am making for the occasion . You can see all the other fun creations with my son for Father's day HERE

I'm excited to be trying new techniques for my creations , for both my cards I have tried  Wet embossing, also called heat embossing, is creating by covering a freshly stamped image with embossing powder and drying with a heat element. You need the embossing powder to stick to the inked image before heating it, so you'll want an ink pad that dries slowly. Pigment ink works well. I have used VersaMark ink pad.

Card 1






  • I started with creating a harsh weather sky as a background in a circle with distress ink .  
  • I have stamped and coloured the little bear on his tyre with copic markers and fussy cut it . 
  • I have layered the stamped bear on the tier over the circle with double sided foam tape to a dimension.
  • I have added the sentiment from lawn fawn "float my boat" stamp set , I have heat embossed it on a black cardstock .
  • The card is completed with the sentiment stamped directly on the card saying "To the best Daddy "


Card 2 




For this card I have tried no line colouring technique,  by heat embossing the shirt stamped images with clear embossing powder. I have then coloured these shirts with zig watercolour brush pens . I have stamped the sentiment and adhered it with a blue cardstock on top of the main card .


I enjoyed trying out new styles on these cards , Yes I will still want to keep getting better and better than what I’m right now, and then better myself some more. But I will do it all whilst having fun. So, I do hope you'll keep joining me throughout to provide support and encouragement as I keep working towards these goals.

Handmade Birthday cards

Hello friends ,
I am all excited about trying new things and exploring my strengths and moving forward confidently towards My Goals.


Today I have set of cards using the one stamp set . I have created two birthday cards with Clearly besotted "Laugh Out Loud" Stamp set .

In the first card you can see I have created the stencilled sky background with Ombre effect using 
KAISERCRAFT 12X12 TEMPLATE: GEO QUARTERS. If you find me using pretty old stuffs then you surely can call me a Hoarder ;P . This stamp set attracted me because of its different shapes in balloons and its sentiments . I have stamped the different shapes of balloons and coloured them with zig watercolor pens and fussy cut them. I have layered a few flat on the base and a few with double sided tapes to create dimension . I have used a yellow card stock as the background and haven't layered it as the usual !! 

My critics at home had a doubt if I had stuck it down wrongly.... but noticing the corner being cropped my DH came to the conclusion that it was a latest fashion ....!! I leave it to you to decide...

Im playing along - Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge -All Things Bright And Beautiful


The second card is completely CAS [Clean And Simple] . I have directly worked on the white base and layered the balloons with double sided tapes to create dimension ! I have along with the quirky sentiment from the same set that surely gonna bring a smile on the face of the receiver !!

I am playing along CAS Game #116 - The 4th Big Birthday Bash -  I have used 4 balloons to go with the 4th birthday celebrations at AAACards.


Yes I will still want to keep getting better and better than what I’m right now, and then better myself some more. But I will do it all whilst having fun. So, I do hope you'll keep joining me throughout to provide support and encouragement as I keep working towards these goals.

  • I have added a circle die cut on which the sentiment is layered with double sided foam tape to create dimension .
  • I have finally added the Newton's cat on the card . The cat is coloured with copics and added on the card with double sided foam tape !

June month is filled with Birthdays of Men at home so you can look forward to whole lot of  masculine creations this month . My brother is like my first kid , I have been with him through different phases of life and I treasure this special bond between us!


This is a Birthday Gift tag with a twist as I have worked on 2 tags and put it together to go as a card .
The front layer of the tag is one with splashes of  green and blue distressed base and clock stencilled on it .



I have added a leafy chipboard embellishment from Mudra along with the sentiments and sequences . The tag has wishes and a scrabble "Bro" to complete the look .

The second tag ie the back side is again a distressed and stencilled base on which I have added chipboard flowers and butterfly stamped image . 



Here's something funky and bright like him to go on the other side . 
It reads ; "YOU ARE AWESOME "


Here's the close up of the 2 tags together .... I am excited about the tags going in together so perfectly as I wanted !!

Altenew - Daisy for May 2018 inspiration challenge

Hello friends ,

I have a new card and a matching tag to share today that I made using daisy stamp set from Altenew. This is one cute lil stamp set I can hardly resist!!  Here's a look at what I have made:


I started with stamping the floral image on my Bristol cardstock.  Then I fussy cut them , I did the same with the leaves . 


I have used a aqua blue cardstock as the base . 
I have adhered spellbinders simple lattice die cut as second layer to the card in white . 
Further I have used Mudra chipzeb wreath leaves which I have colored in teal chalk paint . 
Over this leafy wreath I have used the fussy cut flowers and arranged them to go with composition of the card . 
Finally I have gone with the sentiment matching the colours of the card  and the pink stones are adhered to complete the card.


I have created a tag with the same colour combination in mind but with more of pink . I created the tag base on watercolour paper with Timholtz tag die . I have used worn lipstick and abandoned coral distress inks to fill in the pink on the tag in a combination .


With a closer look of the tag you can see splashes of the teal chalk paint on the tag as the base over which I have layered the wreath and the flowers .
 I popped the flowers on foam dots for dimension. Here's a closer shot


I created this card  and the Tag to play along with this month's Altenew Inspiration Challenge. The colours for this month's challenge are very soft and pretty, and I wanted to create something using them.


That's it from my side for today. Thanks for dropping in would love to know if you enjoyed my work too!! Thank you for stopping by!
