Happy Holi

Hey everyone!
For my official Craft adda post today, I have made a not so traditional holi card today inspired by this card by Ardyth Percy robb.

I've used Winnie and Walter (stripes) and Paper Smooches (I heart Art) stamp sets. 
The sentiment is from simon Says Stamp (handwritten borders)
I just love the way the neon colours pop on the black background, don't you??!

I have stamped one panel with neon inks (hero arts) and heat embossed the black panel with neon embossing powders. (American Crafts)
I added some neon velvet buttons and a sentiment to finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hope you are having a Happy Holi!

I am submitting this for the Paper Smooches Sparks Anything Goes Challenge

I am the Mashup Glamete!

Yippie I won at Friday Mashup!
I just loved the way this card turned up and am so happy to be named the 'Mashup Glamette'!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a happy day!

Circle Rose

Okay, last post for today!!!

Inspired by this rose that I saw on the awesome Ardyth Percy-Robb's blog, I made my own in ivory and gold ( hers is a lot more striking!)

I am playing the Runway Inspired Challenge-  Oscar Red Carpet and the RetroSketches challenge #155

Supplies used are…Spellbinders nesting circles, sentiment from Hampton Art, Versamark embossing ink and American Crafts gold embossing powder.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a good night!

Watercolouring with Distress markers

I am linking up another card for the Paper Players 'Spring' theme Challenge.
Stamps are from Darcies, Art Impressions and Winnie and Walter. 
Inks are Tim Holtz distress inks and markers and Marvy watercolour markers and the happy die cut is from Winnie and Walter. 
This technique of stamping with distress inks and markers and softening them with water, really make s me happy! 
So I am also linking this card up for the Simply Less in More 'This makes me happy' Challenge.

Birthday Words

Hey! I am on a roll today…after a very long time!
I made this card for the One layer Simplicity Challenge-Words.

To make this card, I masked off the card inked a slump strip of the card with Tim Holtz distress inks.
I then added the sentiments from Winnie and Walter and Hero Arts to finish the card.

Quick and fun to make!
Thanks so much for stopping by…
Have a nice day!


I made this card today for the Paper Players 'Spring" theme challenge. 
The woodgrain background is from Stampin'Up, the flowers and leaves from W+9 and the sentiment is from Winnie and Walter. Inks used are from Tim Holtz and Stazon.
A simple CAS card which reminds me of Spring!

Thanks so much for stopping by…
Have a great day!

Playing with Kraft card

 Good Morning All!
I am playing the Simon says stamp flickr challenge today…it is a combined challenge with Lawn fawn..and the Friday Mashup challenge!

For these challenges, I had to create a vintage look and use kraft paper as well as Lawn Fawn and Simon says Stamp products. Oh, and also to use the embossed embossing technique…whew! ;-)

I started with a piano sheet music background which I found in 'Papers,Papers,Papers' a book by The Crafters Paper Library.
Because I like to hoard printed paper, I photocopied the paper  to use it.
I then distressed the edges and used Claudine Helmuth's multi medium matte (absolutely love it) to fix to the card topper.
I did the same with the piano keys, die cut from Memory box.

For the embossed embossing technique, I embossed a piece of brown paper with cuttlebug embossing folders and then heat embossed over it with gold embossing powder.
I then die cut the numbers (Lawn Fawn) and fixed them using foam tape.

The sentiments are from the Simon Says Stamp 'tilted banner' stamp and die set and Stampendous.

Finally I distressed the edges of the card topper and the sentiment banners with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink.

Making this card has been a huge mood lifter….hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
