floral layered stamp cards

Hello All ,

I am sharing sets of note cards and Thank you cards I made using some Layered stamps from the latest release at Mudra -Layered Peony and tried my hands on Mogra layers and Begonia Layers at the Mudra blog

1.Set of 4X4 Note cards


To create my own floral arrangement, 
  • I have used Mogra layers by stamping the lightest first and layered with the dark colours using the normal stamping block. 
  • For the first set I haven't stamped the outline to keep it different. 
As I did more and more of these stamping I came to ease with these layered creations.


I have shared the stamping guide I followed for the next 2 sets of Thank you note cards. The Thank you sentiment is from the Mixed Greetings stamp set.



2. Thank you cards - 6x4


 I made these set of 6x4 cards using some Layered stamps from the latest release Layered Peony. 
I have played around with it differently, sometimes used only 2 layers and sometimes all 3. Here is a stamping guide you can follow for stamping using this set.This is the best part of the layered stamps that you can decide how you want it and colours fill in the space making the process fast for multiple creations !



3. Thank you cards with Begonia Layers 


I choose to go with single layer of the Begonia for one card and was happy with the arrangement with how it looked and added the leaves also differently.The second card has a light and dark layer and the leaf in the single layer .

Mixed Media wall art with alcohol ink background

Hello friends ,

I have created a mixed media wall art  with alcohol ink background which is 8"x 6" in size and goes out as a gift this week for friends I'm visiting.


Alcohol inks are in this year and creating textures so fun with them and you can see my other creations with Alcohol inks Here and Here. The Alcohol splash sprays give excellent coverage on porous as well as non porous surfaces. Few puffs of these sprays add vibrant gold splash on the chipboard I have used here. It renders an amazing shimmer, which is hard to capture on camera.

 I have used the Blooms Within stamp set as the focus of my creation and decorated around it with Floral Flourish Chipzeb.



  • For this creation I have layered the chipboard with white Gessso first and thats when it is primed and ready to take the colours and the textures.
  • Once its fully dried I have created textures on the chipboard using Memory Dots Stencils and texture paste. 
  • I have used Alcohol Ink in magenta and Gold and played along till I was satisfied with the background.
  • I let it dry for few days so that the surface is fully dry and ready to work.



I have used Floral Flourish Chipzeb to decorate and filled it in with the sentiment from  Blooms Within stamp set . The sentiment is layered on the golden cut out background.

Here are a few close ups of the creation, the layers and textures created.


That is all for today :)

Thanks for everything - Layered creations


Hello Friends ,


Today I have creations on theme for Teacher's day ."Teacher's Day" is intended to be special days for the appreciation of teachers, September 5, the birthday of Independent India's second President, Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan (1888-1975), is celebrated as Teacher's Day in India since 1962. Radhakrishnan believed that teachers should be the best minds in the country. 


Our teachers are always very special. They make learning a wonderful experience for us. But it is not often that we thank these wonderful people who help in building us....

Sometimes it can be difficult to find the right words to say to someone who means so much to you. I am sharing few creations today that I made as a Thank you note for my mentors using Mudra's Thanks die which felt perfect way I wanted to convey my regards. 

Here you can see I have created a Pyramid card , that has 4 layers and it is put together with a band that holds the Thanks die cut. 


Thanks die cut is also 4 layered,I have die cut using thanks die and put together 4 cutouts to get this thickness with a normal blue card stock and further layered it with glossy accents to get this outcome. The sentiment is from Thanks Stamp Set that coordinates the die and yet again I have layered the sentiment on a double sided foam to create a 3d effect.


This card is a Pyramid card that I choose to have only 4 layeres.I have used DCWV Peri and Peach double sided paper pack for this creation. It holds sheets with Rose gold foil making this creation very attractive.

The last card is 6"x6" on which card 5"x5" is adhered and similarly 4"x4" and fianlly the 3"x3".


I have cropped the corners giving it a curvy edge for this card and used double sided pattern papers saving time to decorate both ends. This card is made top fold.


Here inside I have decorated with stamped and die cut images from Pinkfresh Studio Clear Stamps, Word Series: Dream and Word series: Believe Stamps Set - Pinkfresh Studio.


For the last layer I have a pop up girl reading, I played with MFT "Our Story" stamp set, everything is colored using copics marker pens and fussy cut out using scissor. Finally I have added sentiments from Kaisercraft Texture Clear Stamps Confidence stamp set.


Moving on to the second card


This card is again is a Pyramid card with 4 layers measuring 6"x6" on which card 5"x5" is adhered and similarly 4"x4" and fianlly the 3"x3".
You can see the page by page look here 


For this card I have kept the edges normal , giving it a square look and it opens like a normal card with side fold.


Here inside again I have decorated with stamped and die cut images from Pinkfresh Studio Clear Stamps, Word Series: Dream and Word series: Believe Stamps Set - Pinkfresh Studio.


Finally I have added sentiments from Kaisercraft Texture Clear Stamps Confidence stamp set.


The last page holds space to write your heart out !


I am grateful to all my Teacher's - Thank you for instilling in me a passion for learning.
Happy Teachers Day!

That is all for today :)

Memory file folder scrapbooking


Hello Friends,
My journey into crafting began with Scrap booking, mostly documenting my baby's milestones. Over the years it has evolved to book binding and memory album making but I still journalise and document my Life.I follow fewer rules and have adopted to many styles over the period from 12x12 scrap booking layouts to Becky Higgins Project life. 



This time I decided to document this day in my life with Heidi swapp Memory file folder scrap booking way. Though I haven't used her Memory file folder I have made my own inspired by her creation.

In Heidi swapp words -Memory File allows one to create a MEMORY EXPERIENCE. It’s an interactive collection of classic ‘office supply’ file folders, but pretty, that allows plenty of room for multiple photos and plenty of story telling. 

Today I want to show you a classic approach to Memory Files. The possibilities are endless as to how one can create with said Files.



  • I have used a 12x12 double sided pattern paper and given it a score at center 2" making the front smaller than the back and punched using my WRMK 1-2-3 punch.
  •  I have printed out the pictures from that day using my Canon Sephy printer. 
  • I have decorated the front cover with a 6x4 postcard picture and added stamped sentiments from technique Tuesday My Sun & Moon Stamp Set .
  •  The pattern paper used here is from Itsy Bitsy
  • I have used coffee cup stickers from Itsy Bitsy




Inside the Memory file folder I have decorated with the events and pictures clicked as I have shown the close ups here.






I have used a sentiment stamp from MFT BB Somebunny - MFT Stamps set.


Over the end of the page I have created a pocket to hold the lovely tooth picks and coasters that added to the wonderful day out and memories of the place.


The paper nerd and and story teller in me really engages with telling so much of a weekend’s event in one place.


So, if you are like me…have lots of photos. A weekend trip? a story longer than can be found on a single page layout? 


A Memory File approach may be just what you are looking for. Room for lots of photos. Room for lots of journaling. Room to get your story right where it needs to be. Filed away and at your finger tips.


Thanks for sending me so many messages and asking me how I create I have many ways of journaling and documenting tried and tested , hoping to share those here soon. . I shall soon start making some process tutorials to if you wish to know how I made this.
