Beautiful day


Hello friends, I am back with a floral card today.


I made the background using magical shakers .After the bg was dry I stamped the floral image repeatedly and heat embossed it in black. To add some interest to the card design I cut the panel in two and foam mounted them on card leaving some gap between the two pieces. Gold heat embossed “Beautiful” on and stamped “Day” in the gap .


Finished off with few gems. It does not show in photos but the magical shakers have beautiful shimmer.

Supplies used:
Stamp-Charmed (Altenew)
LSG Magical Shakers-Ocktoberfest Orange, Cuckoo Clock Cardinal
Onyx Black pigment ink
Catherine Pooler rocking red dye Ink 
Rangers Clear Embossing powder

Cute Critter Orchestra



Cute Critter Orchestra welcomes you to special performance!
Do check the video to see them perform.


Here is how it started,


I stamped the background using white ink on textured black card stock and drew the other details with embossing pen and heat embossed them.Then I stamped the critters separately on white cardstock with light ink water-colored and fussy cut them with few extra body parts.


I got this idea from paper dolls/puppet were the body part are attached with Brad's to allow movement.Only problem.was how to connect all of them to single tab.Then I came across this card  by Laura and her post had a tutorial.
l know my tab is a bit large! Made a matching envelope for the card.


Supplies used:



Three stamp sets from W&W(Multigrain ,Party On,The party hangover)
White pigment ink
Rangers Emboss It pen.
Clear embossing powder
Brustro Water color paper
Faber Castle connector color pens
Lots of brads

Set of floral cards


Hello Friends!! After a month of inactivity I am back to sharing cards. Not just one but a set of three.The basic design for all three cards is similar. Heat embossing on the background panel ,gold embossing on vellum and fussy  cut floral cluster.


Most of time taken while creating these cards was spent on getting right peach color! Of all the options I tried the solution came from most unexpected pigment inks. The box of rainbow colored pigment inks was lying in my stash for almost 3 years completely unused and the ink pads are giving away now.


Background for this card was created by heat embossing the pattern with lindy’s embossing powder.


For the next two cards I went for a tone on tone look with clear embossing powder.


I did some more gold embossing on background to tie the design together.


Which one do you like more ?


 The Elegance of white on white or the bold dramatic black ?

Supplies used:
