Happy For You - B&W Card !!

Hi..Sharing a quick post today...Made a card for Winnie&Walter WCMD Day Challenges!!



To make this card I used Feather Stamp From PABD Designs, India and stamped it in a Random Pattern. Then Die Cut the "Happy" word using Altenew Script Die


To add some interest, I stacked 4-5 Red Color Die cuts from the same Happy Die and adhere them beneath the first one in slightly shifted  position, so that the red colour pops out.

Added a strip from the same red CS & some Enamel Dots to give it more life. Also added a sentiment from Altenew Label Love Stamp Set below the happy to complete its meaning.

I must admit that this is the quickest card I ever made and the result is satisfying too.
Hope you guys liked it too !!

Welcome Baby Girl Card !!

Hi Gals ...I am back again with a quick card ...nothing fancy !!
Actually I love to play along the challenges and The Twisted Challenge attracts me a lot n I couldn't resist myself to participate . In this way I can  get back my lost crafting mojo also .

This card which i made for a dear friend who recently blessed with a baby girl and i hope she like it :)

The Theme was -  TTC#3: Go Bold + Replace Me !!

I interpreted the letter 'R' in the word 'GIRL' with a sweet girl cabochon n i hope u all can relate the same as well .

There is no logic behind the design so please excuse my bad imaginations . I just think of pink for the baby girl n thats the only base where the whole design starts from.....lol...sometimes i am so illogical that u cant even guess my limits of foolishness ...haha. jokes apart n Please enjoy the card. --

Card with Sparkle - made by Yesha !!

Hi Friends...!! Sharing this post on behalf of my daughter Yesha (8 years old) as she made a card for the ongoing Kids Challenge at Simon Says Stamp blog !! She Participated in the same challenge last year also and from the day one of this challenge, she was pretty excited to participate and was after me to help her in the card making but due to shortage of time  or i can say very busy schedule i was unable to help her. but i wanted her to participate so i checked yesterday that ow many days left to enter n then i get to know that there is only one day n few hours left then i immediately made my mind that i will guide her.

So here is the card which she made...the design of the card is decided by both of us...she did all the stamping & coloring part and i helped her in fussy cutting only. She did the die cutting also by herself only as she loves running my bigshot always whenever i craft. Also she did the sticking part too ...here i guided her only in the placements. But what matters a lot is that we enjoyed crafting together :)


I hope you like our efforts and please do leave some love for Yesha ...it will encourage her a lot !!

Thanks .

Checkered Florals !!

Hi...Sharing a quick post as i am running short with the time & i really wanted to play along with the The Twisted Challenge & their link can be close anytime so here is my card -- (without any editing )








Please excuse bad pics as I clicked all in night n much hurry...!! but i realised one thing that capturing Red colour with mobile is quite typical...anyways i managed to catch the slightly visible checkered pattern which is much much noticeable in real . Also i tried editing these pics but when i edit n increased the brightness/ exposure, the pattern becomes completely vanished...so i didn't edited any pic!!






I colored the flower images in checks pattern using Prisma color Pencils . hope you can see that. Special Thanks to Pooja for sharing the tips to create n color the checkered pattern ❤

No - Line Water-coloring Fever continues..!!

Heyaa...How are you all doing ? Well monsoons are here so i hope everyone is enjoying the season..!! I am also enjoying this season with my lil one and not crafting much as she needs my most of the time :)  & She is sitting next to me while i am writing this post ☺☺❤😙

These days i am just trying my hands on no-line water coloring and this is so addictive i swear but just due to time constrains i cant do much but no worries.. " Less is More " . So here is my card inspired by Nina Marie's this tutorial. Mine is not as perfect as her but i tried hard ...n would love to hear from you what u think :)

So here is my card -










Did lots of masking & watercolored the florals using Zig brush pens . Then added grey shading for more depth !! Also added water droplets for some interest :)

Birthday Card - No Line Coloring !!

Hi Friends... 
Today i am sharing my first attempt with No-Line watercoloring ...i was always attracted with no line watercoloring but never tried it but finally decided to give it a try....though its not too good but yes i am quite happy with the final results. 

I followed the video tutorial of very talented Kristina Werner.

here is my card --


The idea of using cupcake is came from Deepti's this Card (Below) !! Yes i am getting back to crafting thru such challenges and i love Deepti's Work a lot so thought to case her which was required too in the Stamplorations  B'day Bash challenge !!



I stamped the cute Koala bear from Peek-a-boo Designs, India & Cupcake is from Technique Tuesday Stamps . Birthday Greeting is from Inspired by Stamping .

Used Masking technique to let the koala sit on the top of cupcake and then watercolored with Zig Brush Pens (Need More control  n practice 😉 )

Hope you like my attempt and pls suggest me where i need to improve more :)
