Interactive cards with PABD stamps & Dies

Hello friends..we are just a day away from 2017 ! last days with 2016 :) Here I am sharing my final post as PABD design team. I have mostly created CAS and Mixed media cards with PABD stamps and dies So  I decided to do something different for my last post, interacive cards...The techniques I love but have not attempted much :) I also managed to use pps.here comes the first one ,

Lots of Floral fantasy on this one and fussy cutting too ;) lets pull the tab

do you see something ?

..tada a slider card.

Now the next one, looks quite boring ?

lets open it ,

looks simple but its fascinating to see the circle twist and pop (I know a video would have been cool..lazy me !)

A Special Thanks to Dr.Sonia for the Inspiration and a lovely card based on this mechanism :)

and the final one ..(May not look like but )took lots of time and trials :)

A v-fold mechanism with stamped,water-colored and fussy cut images.Coloring all these images at once made me feel like being in school, drawing class!

Its the last post for 2016 on my blog too :) I would like to thank you all for the love,appreciation and encouragement.Its has been a wonderful journey learning new techniques, making new friends now Its time to take a break.Time to say bye for a while ! I will be back sometime in 2017.Till then I wish you a

Very Happy healthy & crafty 2017!

Bonjour with Butterflies - DT post

A warm welcome to my blogger friends ! I am sharing the cards made for PABD DT post.As the title suggests all with butterflies !

Before sharing them ,I would like to remind you all about our current Color challenge, Last month's challenge has been extended to this month and you have some more time to join the fun !

Check the fresh colors !
And here is my card using them

I used acetate as card front and stamped one of the butterfly from Doodled Butterfly stamp set on it using archival ink .I have used black marker for some detailing.

Its from Diwali Greetings ,perfect for new year ! The bg has tiny stamps from Indian Motifs set

Here you can see the stamping inside.

Next card has same butterfly stamp ,water-colored and fussy cut.I have used negative of Scalloped circle die cut to frame the circle.

Its a suspended spinner card. Simple and fun !

The Sentiment is from Little sparrow set.
And now as usual the last one , Mixed media card based on challenge colors that too with die-cut negative.

Base layer has butterfly from the Doodled butterfly set stamped with grey ink on packaging tissue ,next layer has text from Diwali Greetings.The shaker is made using negative of Hearts Butterfly die-cut.

Embellished the card with lace ,flowers and dual leaf die-cut.The sentiment is from same set and is stamped on acetate.

Hello Frends!  Sharing second DT post for November.We are revisiting past releases this month.I had fun getting out all my PABD stamps out and deciding which to use ;)

November is coming to end and in no time we will be busy creating New year cards , I started ! Used the beautiful Floral bloom stamp for spotlight technique.

The sentiment is from Diwali greetings.Close up of water colored flower.

Next up is a Mixed Media card with a leftover background piece from previous card.

For this card I used Little Sparrow set from September ,used only the bird and good things form the set.The leaves are from Floral fantasy while the small flower bunch are from Floral Blooms.

The background has crackle texture paste through Grid stencil.

Last one is for a little girl celebrating her Birthday !

I mixed chalkboard look with some paper piecing on this card.The sentiment is from Floral fantasy.

When you feel blue ..

Hello friends ,most of you know that I love coloring and have been fortunate to be gifted with coloring supplies generously from friends. And when its time for 30 Day coloring challenge I am super excited !

Not the case this time..as hardly getting any time to color ,did manage to ink this beautiful big bloom from Woodware Crafts and color it .I loved the flower as it has lots of scope for water-coloring and the words are very encouraging ! So the color scheme is bright ..
For the card design I have cased this card by Joyce for Happy Little Stamper.


I stamped the flower twice once on card base and again on water-colored paper ,fussy cut it and foam mounted it on card base.A little dimension :)

Thank you for dropping by my blog Today !

** Second post of the day .Scroll down for HLS Guest Post.
Hello Friends ! I am posting after almost 15 Days ..I know I have missed lots of beautiful creations checking them slowly ..
Today I am sharing the cards made for PABD DT post.All of them (actually just two )are based on Current challenge which is Color Inspiration .Check the Awesome colors 

I loved the colors in the challenge photo so much that I used all of them on this card.

 Started by applying texture paste through Grid stencil on the card-base.I was inspired by my teammate Swapna's card while creating the water-colored panel.

Heat embossed the  butterfly die-cut and placed it in a glittery frame and finished off with few enamel dots .The sentiment is from Stringy Text.

Time out Challenges: #69 Give Thanks with Grateful heart
Crafts Galore Encore Challenge :  Anything goes

I have used three colors from the photo for this one.Looks familiar ? Yes a slight repetition of design from this card but with different supplies. Started by heat Embossing the floral blooms stamp and water coloring it. Rather than using them as it is I fussy cut them and arranged them on card .The card base has texture paste applied through grid stencil .

Used a negative from scallop rectangle die and coated it with loose glitter to jazz it up .Finished off with a heat embossed sentiment and sequins.

STAMPlorations : Theme (used three colors)

The flower challenge : Occasion (Birthday )

Guest designing for HLS

Hello Creative Friends , So Happy to share that I am over HLS blog as Guest Designer for Mixed Media Challenge.

The theme for this month is Alcohol inks,It was tricky as I didn't own any ! Mellissa Lane (challenge coordinator HLS) was so kind to share few video links and encouraged me to try making my own Alcohol inks.Thanks to Mellissa I learned something new and was exposed to so many interesting techniques.

Mixed Media Card with Alcohol Inks

Coming to my card,You must have already guessed,bg created using homemade Alcohol inks.

Mixed Media Card with Alcohol Inks
 I tried one more thing ,texture paste on acetate.Didn't want to cover it up so created a small embellishment cluster with die-cut leaves and a handmade rose.
