Mermaid card set

Hi everyone!

I am here to share a cute card set I made for Lawn fawnatics challenge.

The challenge is to create card sets.

I hope you like what I made…

I used only one stamp set –Mermaid for you– and coordinating diesto make the set.

Here are more pictures…

I first cut out 4″Γ—4″ panels and doe cut a circular window where I wanted all the images to be.

Then, on card bases that measure 4.25″Γ—4.25″, I sponged Distress inks. I adhered all the images making sure they looked nicely tucked in when the circular window panel was added.

I stamped the sentiment and that was it. πŸ™‚

I hope you like them..

Happy news!!

Hi everyone!

I’m SUPER excited today to let you know that I have been selected to be a part of the AWESOME Heffy Doodle Design Team! I can’t tell you how elated I was when I was contacted about it. There was no way I was going to let that pass. I have been a huge fan of Heffy Doodle since they started and been following them from Day 1. It thrills me to see how their business is growing and it feels awesome to now be a part of it.

Enough blabbering from me… Look at all the awesome ladies I get to work with. Thank you Lesley, Crystal for this incredible opportunity!

Also, a couple of months ago, I got selected to be on another awesome DT- Isabel Cristina Stamps (click to be taken to her IG feed). Isabel illustrates the cutest stamp sets and they are all digis. She has an Etsy store and you can buy them there. She is a very sweet person and when you buy a digi set, she includes a ‘Easy print page’ which makes your life SO easy. You just need to open that image and print it. You will have all the images from that digi set printed in no time.

That’s it from my side now. Hope you had a great weekend..I did. πŸ™‚

Critter party ensemble

Hello everyone!!

I know I have been neglecting this place terribly but trust me, life has been throwing crazy challenges my way and blogging has taken a backseat. I regularly share on my Instagram account though.

Today, I’m here to share a party ensemble I made for the Neat and Tangled challenge.

Little tangles challenges were one of my favorite go-to challenges to play along every month. I was a little disappointed when I couldn’t find a new challenge this January. When they shared an update that they would be hosting quarterly challenges, I was so excited. Then, they announced the challemge, hosted by the awesome Elena. Her party organizing skills are mind blowing! The truth is I have never ever in my life hosted a party. Yes. Not even our son’s birthday parties. They were hosted by my in-laws and parents. And it also doesn’t help that I’m an introverted person with social anxiety. Parties and gatherings make me want to hide or run. Enough about me… This time though, I decided we would host his party. Thanks to Neat and Tangled for this challenge and Elena Roussakis for inspiring me to challenge myself and try something that’s way out of my comfort zone. I won’t say what I made was anything close to perfect but I’m so glad I tried. I can’t wait .

Thanks to so many generous people who give out free templates for so many things. the cupcake wrapper template was a life saver. I made the following for the challenge
. the banner with the name of my Agasthya who will be 3 in August. πŸ™‚
. favour bags using the Neat and Tangled Scallop frame dies and WRMK gift bag punch board.
. diy popcorn box
. labels for glasses and paper straws (paper straws are dummy πŸ˜‚)
. diy party hats.
. cupcake wrappers and toppers.

Thanks to this challenge, I got to use loads of patterned paper that I have been hoarding for ages. 😁 I will be writing a blogpost with all the details and include even more pictures. Thanks for reading!

Here are the pictures…

Here are the products I used-

Neat and Tangled Wild ones and School house stamp sets.

Neat and Tangles Scalloped dies for the banner

MFT Alphabet dies.

WRMK gift bag punch board.

You are the bestest!

Hey everyone!

Let us just pretend my last post was published just a couple of days ago. πŸ˜‚

Today, I have a floral card to share with you. I made it for the current Altenew Inspiration challenge. The colours were so beautiful that I had to try them. I used copic markers to colour.

Here is the inspiration picture.

Here is my card…

Here is a close up..

I used the ‘Best Mom’ and ‘floral shadow’ stamp sets.

I stamped the image from the ‘Best Mom’ stamp set many times on a piece of Neenah Solar white 110lb cardstock to cover the entire piece. I finished the card with some twine and the sentiment.

Hope you like the card..

Supplies used-

Altenew Best Mom stamp set

Altenew Floral shadow stamp set for sentiment

Copic markers- R83, R85 for the flowers and

Altenew set A artist markers for the leaves.

Altenew inspiration challenge

Hi everyone!

A quick post to share a card I made for the Altenew Inspiration challenge.

Here is my card…

I used the Altenew ‘Hug me’ stamp set.

I stamped the image on Kraft coloured cardstock and coloured with Prisma coloured pencils. Then, on the card base, I stamped the stripes using a Clearly Besotted stamp set and filled the white space with colours from the challenge inspiration picture with copics.

I hope you like the card ..

See you..

Create a smile- tag it challenge

Hi everyone!

A quick post to share a card I made for the Create a Smile Tag- it challenge. It is their first challenge and I’m excited to participate using one of their adorable stamp sets.

Here is my card using the ‘unfrogettable‘ stamp set.

To make this card, I stamped the images from the stamp set in grey on the card base. I coloured the frog and the puddle with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and gussy cut them out. I added googly eyes as I thought it would be fun. Die cut a tag using the Paper Smooches tag die and adhered the images on it. Since I found the background too distracting, I layered a piece of vellum and then added the tag.

I hope you like it. πŸ™‚

Hugs…

Sindhu.

Happy New Year!!

Hello everyone! Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a great time this Christmas and New Year. 

I wanted to share a couple of projects I made this year. Not bad of you ask me… two in 5 days. πŸ™‚

The first is a card…

I used a beautiful stamp set from Tha Stamp Market for this card. The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.

I stamped the images on Neenah Solar white cardstock and coloured them with copic markers and fussy cut them out. The card design is pretty simple and I wanted it that way.

The next is a diy shadow box. 

And look at all that shimmer when it catches sunlight! Amazing, isn’t it? 

Here is the blogpost that explains how to make these shadow boxes yourself. It is so easy and you will be able to make some cool wall decor. πŸ™‚

See you soon, friends…

Have a nice weekend. πŸ™‚

Holiday baking

Hi everyone!

I know I have been very irregular in posting on my blog these days. I have been busy with a personalised order but more than that I have been struggling to get creative. Absolutely no mojo. 

I finally got myself to make a card for the ‘Little Tangles’ challenge. The challenge this month is colouring.I made this card…

I feel most challenged by the no-line colouring technique.  And even more if I am colouring relatively larger sized images like the bear on this card. And I’m not really good at using dark browns. So i tried to do all three together that I usually don’t do… no-line colouring+dark browns+large image (large for me!).


I hope you like the card…

I used ‘Holiday baking‘ stamp set from Neat and Tangled to make this card.
