Kindness matters- Take two on the Neat and Tangled Throwdown challenge- Crafting with compassion

Hi everyone..

I had a little time yesterday to create and I made one more card for the Neat and Tangled Throwdown challenge- Crafting with compassion.

Here is my card-

I followed Jennifer McGuire’s video about making window cards with pop-ups. It was fun to watch and also make. πŸ™‚

Here are some more pictures…

I hope you like the card…
If I happen to win this challenge, I would love for the money to be donated to some Alzheimer’s disease caring centre. I can’t decide on a name yet but will keep researching to find a genine one that makes good use of the donation.

Since this is my second entry for the challenge, I will link to the first entry where I wrote about why this cause was dear to me. I hope you don’t mind clicking HERE to read about it. πŸ™‚

I hope you like the card.

Supplies used-

Neat and Tangled Calathea, Friendly florals stamp sets

Neat and Tangled Rice paddies stencil

Simon Says Stamp Stitched rectangles dies.

Neat and Tangled throwdown- Crafting with compassion.

Hello everyone!

I’m participating in the Neat and Tangled Throwdown challenge- Crafting with compassion. This is a very special challenge and I made a floral card. You can read the story about the cause close to my heart following the pictures.

I stamped the background using images from ‘Friendly florals’ stamp set from Neat and Tangled in light grey ink. Then, using the ‘Scalloped’ dies, I die cut the panel. Adhered the coloured images, added some twine and the sentiment strip. The scalloped panel was adhered on the card base to finish the card.

Here are some close ups..

I hope you like the card.

Now, about the cause close to my heart..

As soon as I read what this challenge was about, there was only one person that came to my mind..my maternal grandfather. He suffered from Alzheimer’s disease for over 6 years and passed away. You can read more about it HERE. It was a heart-wrenching experience for all those close to him. This desease is very hard both on the affected and the caregivers. I remember how his health deteriorated…how the person who wouldn’t forget a single birthday or anniversary failed to recognise his family. It was very, very hard. It was like caring for a child..or even an infant. He passed away from a stroke. We all were devastated but at the same time thankful that he didn’t go through a lot of things that his doctor warned might happen as the disease progressed.

This disease is irreversible. There is no medication available to prevent it. Causes are not completely known. And it takes a lot of money to find proper care. I wish there were more places, in India, dedicated to the care of people suffering from this disease.

If I happen to win this challenge, I would love for the money to be donated to some Alzheimer’s disease caring centre. I can’t decide on a name yet but will keep researching to find a genine one that makes good use of the donation.

Thank you, Neat and Tangled. This challenge makes me love you more!

Hugs..

Here is my card for today…

I used the ‘Wingman‘ stamp set from the latest release and paired it up with a beautiful frame from ‘Clover frame dies‘. i used coordinating die to cut out he bird swing. I poked a tiny hole at the top of the swing and connected the swing and the frame using a tiny brad. My idea was to allow it to move.

I sponged some inks to create the backdrop for the cute bird on the swing.

This is what the inside of the card looks like. It has a pop up shadow box. Thanks to Jennifer Mcguire, I could make this work. I added some Swirly clouds.

Here are a few more pictures…

I already made many cards with the new release and here are a couple of cards that I want to share with you today.

Here is the first-

I used the new Wingman and Teach Me Words stamp sets. I also used the Teacher Heffy cuts. Coloured all the images with Zig Clean Color Real brush pens.

For the background, I did some ink smooshing with Distress Oxide ink. I coated the die cut with Wink of Stella to add shimmer and Nuvo drops- ‘Morning dew’ to add gloss.

For the next card, I used the new Party Palooza Stamp set and coordinating dies. I also used the Stitched Bubble background die and Everyday Sentiment Duos stamp set.

I die cut a circle window and added a piece on cardstock that has lots of images, from the Party Palooza stamp set, in black. I did a lot of masking and layered the stamped panel with a piece of vellum.

For the sub sentiment, I masked a part of sentiment from the Everyday sentiment duos stamp set to just stamp what I wanted.

I hope you like the cards..

The next stop is the awesome Crystal’s blog.

Thanks for visiting! Happy hopping!

Hugs..

Hi everyone!

Here it is-

I used several products from Heffy Doodle and the Scalloped die cut is from Neat and Tangled.

If you want to check the product list, head to the Heffy Doodle blog HERE. πŸ™‚

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..

hugs

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™‚

love

Sindhu
