To make this card i first inked the background with the gorgeous blue inks by tubby crafts. I used Sapphire blue, Aqua Blue, Chinese Blue and Turquoise Blue inks. I flicked some water and lifted it using a dry cloth. I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiments on to the inked panel.

I then stamped these lovely number stamps on to copic friendly cardstock with Tubby craft black ink and colored the images with alcohol markers, before fussy cutting them. The dash lines around the number adds wonderful interest to the stamps and the cute critters make these stamps super fun. The stamp sets i used are – “One Fun”, “Talking Two”, “Nine World”, “Zero decade”, “Adorable Runner” and ” Christmas Wishes”.

I then adhered the colored images on to the inked panel with foam tape for dimension.

Hello There!

IMG_6745.PNG

I am back with the next challenge theme at Pattie’s Creations Challenge, which is a theme based monthly challenge starting on 1st friday of every month with many wonderful prizes and  showcases.

The theme for Decemeber 2019 is  – “Winter / Christmas”

Just perfect for this festive season

Here’s my card using the “Pattieboop and Allie waiting for Santa ” .

1.JPG

IMG_6744.JPGIn my last blog post I had introduced you to Pattieboop. Today, i introduce you to her favorite pet named Allie.  cat and loves playing and spending time with Pattieboop. Allie spends most of her days napping and her nights are spent getting in to mischief… Allie loves to act with Pattieboop and you will see them in some very funny situations.

 

2.JPG

For this card, I first Colored the adorable image of Pattieboop and Allie with copic markers. I enjoyed coloring the Christmas tree and dressing it up with nuvo drops in red. To give a wooden texture to the window frame i added some curvy lines and fussy cut the window frame. I folded and opened both the window doors.  I then added some snow with the snow pen and heat set it. To finish the card i adhered the colored image to a pattern paper with winter scene.

I love the dimension the folded doors of the window, the nuvo drops and the snow provide to this card. I had so much fun making this.

I hope my card inspires you to playing with us and share your lovely birthday cards. REMEMBER, if you use one of Pattie’s images you get an extra entry to the challenge… Just make sure to please give her the credit for the images. Have Fun!!!

Forever Grateful

Hi There!

I am thankful for a lot of things in my life, my parents, loving sis, caring husband, family, friends and most of all our super adorable son. I am truly blessed to have a stable job and to have found my calling i.e. crafting  – Handmade Happiness.

But every once in a while life throws a curve ball and you got to deal with it. Recently, I had such a situation and thanks to a very loving friend, whom i absolutely admire, i could hit this curve ball right out of the park! I knew fell down hard, but thanks to my dear friend, i got myself up feeling more powerful and beautiful from within. Thank you dear friend and this card is especially for you. I am forever Grateful to you and our friendship.

Here’s To make this card i first stamped and colored the center cut floral stamp by Simon Say stamp. After fussy cutting the image, I then covered the colored portion with glossy accents for added texture and dimension.

Once the focal image was ready, before adhering it with foam squares i stencilled the background in soft grey color.

IMG_7325.JPG

I then added the strip of black fish cut card stock with the sentiment heat embossed in white.

Finally to finish the card, i adhered the card onto a grey card base and added clear sequin.

I enjoyed making this card, as i was filled with an overwhelming feeling of gratefulness towards my friend and all the while i was making this card, i was only thinking about her. Using the colors i thought she would like, enjoying the whole experience of making something from my heart for a loved one.

I share my story, mostly to encourage/inspire anyone who is reading this, not to shy away from seeking help of friends. Not to suffer or deal with the life alone. It’s surprising how a chat / drive with a friend, can make life more wonderful.

I love reading your comments and greatly appreciate your time on my blog. Do let me know your thoughts.
