OLC - Birthday

A quick post today for a CAS card.

It is one of the quick cards I made. First I stamped(Itsy Bitsy - Bird day stampset) and colored it using watercolor pencils. I was too tempted to add something to it, a border, some sequins or some detailing but I had to stop myself as then things get out of control for me :)

So just a simple one layer birthday card. Hope you like it. I really look forward to your kind feedback.

Thanks and have a great day!

Masculine Twist and Pop-up Card

Hello Friends,
In continuation to trying out new styles of card, today I am posting a twist and pop-up card. Since I make very few masculine cards , I tried to make one with this.

This is the front of the card

This is the inside

The PP used is Papericious - The Gentleman and the stamps are from SSS Big Birthday Wishes.

Made a video of the card making process. Hope you enjoy the video.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Tunnel Card

Happy Friday!

Of late I have been making single layer and CAS cards more so this time tried to challenge myself and make something different. I came across this tutorial on tunnel cards by Jennifer Mcguire and I was sure this needs to be tried. So here is what I came up with

The outside

The inside view

As I said, I followed the tutorial for the measurements. The top I tried to keep simple, initially I planned to keep only the butterfly but it was looking too plain so went with some smooshing. I added the bottom brown strip to hide my flaw :(. As even after following the instructions, the upper flap was little shorter than the base of the card. So added the strip to cover up that flaw :)  Added the washi on the strip to make it more interesting. 

Coming to the inner tunnel mechanism, the windows are hand cut. That was the only challenging part as I did not get a very smooth finish. Tried my best to hide the rough edges under the stamped and fuzzy cut leaves and flowers(Layered Mangolia, Leafy, Beautiful butterfly from Mudra). Added layered design using DI at bottom most surface to create some interest before stamping the sentiment. To finish off added few sequins and gems.

I enjoyed making this tunnel card and hope you like it. Thanks for reading through patiently :)

Have a great weekend !!!

Fintastic Birthday

Hello Friends,
Today I am back again with a CAS card. I made this last week but got delayed posting it.
So here it goes

It's very simple CAS card colored using watercolor pencils. Only thing I had to do was layer all those tiny stamps to form the lovely scene in the fish bowl. Added in few details of some granules at bottom and  few bubbles and finished with some highlight with white gel pen.
The stamps and sentiment is from Itsy Bitsy.

That's it from me.

I am delighted that you spent some time here. Do leave some love, it makes my day more brighter :)

Kaleidoscope - Colorful Butterflies

Hi Friends,
Happy Friday :)

Wanted to post this card since a few days but was caught up with other work. Finally doing it today, before getting busy on weekend again.

Created the background by repeatedly stamping the butterfly(Mudra-Beautiful Butterflies) with help of masking. Then colored it using DI and watercolor pencils. Made it colorful and vibrant card.
Sentiment is heat embossed and from the same stamp set. 

That's it from me today. Wish you have a great and fun filled weekend !
