Birthday Cards for the Blogger Friends

Hello Friends ,
I am on a Card making spree and Im loving it !!
I made a few lovely cards for my Blogger friends who are celebrating their birthdays this month 

This one I loved creating the water colour background and added the stars die cut negative ! 
Stamped the sentiments and added this lovely girl sticker....... Im a sticker person :)

 Here again I have used the die cut negative  and added the vellum sticker sentiment  and hand stamped the sentiments 

Here I have used an lovely PP and added the bees stickers and sentiment sticker

This card I have created the back ground by hand stamping various teddy bears from the same stamp set from Itsy Bitsy ! I have added layer on vellum on which I have hand stamped the sentiments !

This card is my first try on distress inks with pattern papers and added the vellum stickers with its bitsy flowers !

I loved making each one of the cards and hope all my friends day is made special with each of this cards !

Share Handmade Kindness Challenge week 4

Hello Friends ,

I  recently contributed these cards to the group "Cards for a Cause" as a part of "Friends Friend" initiative !

 A wonderful lady is battling Breast Cancer. 
Chemo has taken its toll on her and she is basically very low. 
So we got together to send some encouragement or funny cards her way !! 

I thought of making it special rather than sending one card so I got on to make seven cards indicating a card a day :) 

Each card is unique in its own way , 
here I have used a PP for back drop from penny black Coco style paper pad  and layered it with scallop circles , added hand stamped and fussy cut sentiments from the jillibean Word Bubbles stamp set! Finally added an telephone chipbaord cut out from Maya road .

For this card have used the card stock as Brown and layered with pattern papers and hand stamped the image ! I have added along a tim holtz tattered flower with an Brad and butterfly.

Here I have used two layers of different coloured card stock and PP. The stamped dress is Hot out of press fancy dress

This card is more of sticker card from everyday life set from the local store I had been hoarding it for years now 

The rainbow card is my favourite these days and made sure I added a cloud PP

This card is dry embossed and distress inked and added a sentiment along a flower 

Finally my favourite card I have blogged about here 

I have used a white card stock and water coloured it with pink and purple. Stamped the pretty Atumn Splendor stamp from WRMK on the water coloured layer after it dried  hand cut it like a window and added it over a black card stock ! 
Hand stamped the sentiments along the few flowers and added a ribbon to go with it !!

If you are a card maker and would like to contribute for a cause by sending a card, "Cards for a Cause" FB group would be a good place to start!

I enjoyed making it :) 
Hope you like it...

Prima Girl Card

Hello Friends ,
Today I am sharing a creation I made for a lovely little friend ! She crafts herself so I needed to take care to make it more special !

I have used a 300 gsm card stock here from the local printers which has the texture and sturdiness of the Iris Card stock . I have used a part of the DCWV pattern paper as the background and layered it with stamped image of the Primal doll ! 

The prima doll is again layered with a pink pattern paper as a dress and water coloured. I have added a punched teddy bear with the doll.... I made sure the teddy bear gets a lovely face and an heart button added to his tummy, this seemed the more fun part of this creation !

I have die cut  the Tim Holtz tattered flowers with dcwv pattern papers and put them together with lovely Brads! 

Behind of the card I have used a 6x4 die cut card and added handwritten sentiment to go with it! This is a all time Hit with the kids :)

Pattern papers are my all time favourites , you can see me use them from background to on stamped doll and the flowers  too 

Here is how I made this lovely card for the little girl who was totally in love seeing this creation :)
