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 hope you like the card 🙂 Your next stop is Isha’s beautiful blog.

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!
I’m up on Heffy Doodle blog today with this super fun card. I hope you will visit the original post HERE for all the details.
Thanks for visiting!
Just wanted to share a card I made recently for Heffy Doodle blog.
I’m trying to get out of my comfort zone by adding layers to my project. This is one such card.
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. 🙂
Have a nice day..
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″×4″ panels and doe cut a circular window where I wanted all the images to be.
Then, on card bases that measure 4.25″×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. 🙂
I hope you like them..
A quick note to let you all know that I was on Heffy Doodle blog yesterday with a fun card set. I hope you will check the details there. 🙂

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. 🙂
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. 🙂
. 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 😂)
. 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.
Let us just pretend my last post was published just a couple of days ago. 😂
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..
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.
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 ..
