Hello Friends ! Sharing second batch of inspirations for PABD this month. Made three cards using the latest release.
I have gone soft and subtle with first card.The background is created using beaded Stencil and layered stitched bubble die-cut over it.

 The butterflies are from Doodled Butterfly set and so is the sentiment.

Linking this card to:
Glitter and Sparkle : Anything goes
Butterfly challenge  : #65 Butterfly + H is for hoops(Stenciled bg has rings)
Grab the Badge

For my next card I used the negative of fern flourish die (By now you must have known I love using negative of die-cuts more than the positives).

 Its a clear shaker card. I have stitched two acetate sheets together with some sequins sandwiched between them.

You can see some the sequins inside the ferns in this picture

#159 Crafters Cafe Challenge : Use a new technique (created a clear shaker card,first time) 

Third and the final card for October is simplest.Created the texture by applying texture paste through abstract triangles stencil.

I wanted all the focus to be on fern die-cut so kept the design very clean.

The sentiment is from Stringy text set.

I hope you enjoyed the post and loved my cards .

Rainbow Birthday


Hello Crafty friends after flooding you with 3 posts yesterday I am back with one more today didn't want to miss Winnie & Walter WCMD celebrations.

I have printed the grid pattern(Winnie & Walter freebie) and colored it using Faber Castle connector pens.Time consuming but I enjoyed coloring those tiny squares ,It was quite relaxing ! Then I cut it to get an interesting shape.

The sentiment (Mudra stamp) is heat embossed on stitched circle die cut.Kept the design simple and choose black card base so the rainbow colors are highlighted.

PABD DT Inspiration - part 1

Hello friends! I am sharing card made for PABD DT post. This my third and final card of the Day !

My first card is based on Challenge #11 : Recipe with 1/4 red ,1/4 gold ,"One" and dash of glitter.I used the Floral blooms stamp set released this month,This set is so beautiful and perfect for coloring ! I controlled my urge to color the entire image and just colored one bloom and fussy cut it.

The idea was to highlight "Special one". I have used negative of scallop circle die-cut to frame the flower and the sentiment "You are special" is from little sparrow set and I painted "one". Few sequins to embellish the card.

 Made a Matching envelope.I made this card for my special friend, She a beautiful crafter and I love her CAS style. I have found a very supportive n encouraging friend in her. Jasleen this is for you ;)

Third and Final card made for PABD DT post. (I hope you are not irritated by different post ;) )

I wanted the hearts butterfly die-cut to be in focus on my next card.

Created the background by stamping the butterfly from doodled butterfly set repeatedly with masking and coloring the open space with grey color pencil.

Layered scallop rectangle die-cut and few enamel dots for embellishing and the sentiment is from little sparrow set.
