Super bear

Hello everyone, 
It's my baby brother's birthday today, though not a baby anymore, but my baby brother, always. I made a card with my recent Studio Katia possessions that I won at Kaja's giveaway on Instagram.
My brother is in the Indian Army and they are the most selfless and patriotic men of our country,  nothing less than a Superman. Our country has been facing terrorism and beacause these young boys of our Armed forces, are their guarding our borders, we can sleep peacefully.
Because they are our heroes, hence this card.  My brother has always been my hero but with his uniform on, he's a bit more! I have shared a picture of his here, you will see it if you swipe.
I used Studio Katia's, Kobi the super bear stamp set, colored it with Copic markers and fussy cut it.  The front card panel has sponged Sunrays and a grey skyline die cut. I made my side folded card get some interest by stamping with versamark, the words Poof and Boom.

I had checked superman's cap…

Anniversary love

Hello there,
I wanted to join in the current Male room challenge with this card.  Love your men! I made this on for a friend who requested me to make a card on her behalf for her husband for their anniversary. I thought I'll share through Instagram gallery, but the rules made me make this post.

Even though this has pink,  I think the girl bending to kiss, fits perfectly for 'Love your men' theme. What do you say?

CIC- 464 Bumblebee Birthday wishes

Hello there,
We have a new challenge up at Cupcake Inspirations and this time it's a different game, it's a  - Stash challenge. 

We are sponsored this time by Kitty Bee Designs and they are generously providing a digital image to our randomly chosen winnner.

Though I never bought buttons as embellishments but my lovely friend, Maninder, owner of the store Rainbow Craftykari, sent me a lovely package last Diwali and it had these floral buttons. And am so ashamed of not using these, until now. But that's what these new challenges are about - Using our stash.
I used the cute Bumble bee - digi by Kitty bee designs and colored them with Copic markers. Then I stuck the floral buttons, made stems with a marker and used some die cut leaves for the. Then I  stamped happy birthday with a Stampendous set and mounted my fussy cut Bumble bee with the cake on foam tape.

The Design team has used Buttons in a clever way and you must check out their creations, here. Hope you will look out…

AAA-134 - Stenciled beauty

Hello everyone,

There is a new challenge up at AAA Cards and this time the game is to use one corner with an optional twist of Music.

Uniko is our kind sponsor and guess what?? The winner gets an in- stock stamp set of their choice! How cool is that and so generous of our Sponsor.
For my card, I planned not to twist because I have been itching to use a lovely Uniko stencil, I recently received. I used their Stencil-mask called natures treasures - II for my card. Used one corner to sponge Distress ink - twisted citron through the stencil. I used a sentiment that I thought worked beautifully with the design from the stamp set Originally Organic. Some dew drop embellishments and tadaa...

We have the very talented Karen joining us as our guest, she has a floral beauty to steal your CAS heart away! Do check her card and leave her some love :) also we have great inspiring cards by our design team, please check here, to get inspired.
I hope you will play along with us with your clean and sim…

Yellow Bithday Poppies

Hello friends,
I was inspired by few challenges to make this card. Also I wanted to try a new technique at the CAS Mix up challenge and so after watching Loll do her magic here I used Memory box co's Prim Poppy die and did similar. I had loved the previous Navy and yellow combination of a card I did (here) and thought of doing the same!

I die cut two flowers and sponged in two different yellow and green. Then, I inlaid just the big flower of the first sponged die cut after cutting off the stem. Over it I placed the second die cut after giving some dimension to the petals and bud with a stylus. 

It gives the flower a popped up effect and I like it. Hope you like it too!

Music - My passion, my love!

Hello dear friends,
Have you played at the Indian Quilling challenge yet? The theme this month is my passion, my love. I have a clean and simple take on this challenge with my passion and love - Music & guitar! Not many in the crafting community know that I sing and play guitar and thanks to the challenge I made something for myself.

For this I stamped the treble from a stamp by CAS-ual fridays - Big Treble for the treble and I did selective stamping as I needed the loop on the top of the treble to be straight. I did some free hand strokes to give a definition of a guitar and used a dark brown 5 mm strip for the edge work quilling.

The stamp has a heart and I die cut a heart and mounted it on double layer of foam tape  to finish my piece. 

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you like my work and will play along with your passion and love. 
The challenge rules have changed this year :
1. Must follow this blog.
2.  Maximum of 3 Projects can be linked.
3.Must be a new one made after the …

Valentine's bear

Hello again!
There are times when you have not had enough, you want to go on.. like eating chips! It was bouquet for me. I remembered this cute bear from Hello bluebird - Greetings bear and the bouquet in the set and so it was time to ink it up! I have used this bears for making gift tags for birthday presents but had not used it on a card.

I made him a polar bear because I wanted to highlight the flowers he has picked from the garden for his girlfriend. The die for this bear, lets you tuck in the flowers.. how sweet, isn't it? Do you see the blush on his face? He is a shy bear but hasn't forgotten Valentine's day. 
Have a great Valentine's week, hope your partners - spoil you ;)
