Camp Create Day 3 - Background Bonanza

Image
I am quite excited for Day 3 at MFT Camp Create as it features the kind of backgrounds that I love to make for my cards...so I went ahead and created not one but two cards with brightly coloured backgrounds as the main focus...

Camp Create Day 2 - Magnificent Masking

Image
So this is the second day of MFT Camp Create and the focus today was to create a background using the masking technique...Karolyn created a beautiful sunset horizon for her card and tutorial...and I decided to create a rainbow rays background for my card...

Camp Create Day 1 - Die Cut Inlay

Image
I always watch the MFT Camp Create videos as they are great technique videos and I learn so much...this time I feel confident enough to participate as well...for Day 1 of Camp Create, Barbara Anders showed the inlay die cut technique and challenged us to do the same...I really like this technique as even after adding so much to the card,we don't add layers and/or bulk to it...here's what I created...

Bright Flowers

When I started this card,I did not have a set idea or direction for it...so I was pleasantly surprised with the result...I wish this would happen more often...!! :)

Bird & Butterflies- Scrapbook Boutique August Challenge

Image
As soon as I saw the moodboard for this month's challenge at the Scrapbook Boutique blog,I went through all my stamps..didn't find anything I liked at first...a weird umbrella stamp from ages ago,small or odd looking bird stamps and no shoes stamps at all...got quite a few ideas that didn't work...but I kept going and here are the cards that I created for this challenge...

Best Teacher In The World - Time Out Challenge #89

Image
Were were given an image of a sitting/living room interior for the latest challenge at Time Out Challenges blog, and I chose to use the world map and the colours from the sofa and side table top for my card....I did however keep things simple so that the focus remains on the sentiment and the map...

Two Cute Piggy Cards - My 500th Blog Post

Image
Hello and thank you for visiting my blog today...it's my 500th blog post...it's been two years of blogging for me and I'm amazed at how encouraging and lovely the cardmakers all over the world are and am thankful to all...

No Good Reason to Act Our Age

Image
Most of my school time friends and I are fast approaching our milestone birthdays and we keep talking about it and make fun of how we will be counted as 'old' once we've reached that stage...so when I saw this Art Impressions stamp set,I couldn't resist getting it...was laughing all the time I was making this card...!!

Altenew August Inspiration Challenge

Image
Erum is a fantastic artist whose card is the inspiration for this month's Altenew Inspiration Challenge...I took a lot of inspiration from both her cards to create mine..I did a whole lot of heat embossing on Vellum and wasn't sure if I would be able to put it all together...but I did...and here is my card..

Atlenew Decoupage Flowers - A Card & A Tag

Image
I have been planning to try out the decoupage technique for a very long time and have finally been able to create something...I have seen a lot of cardmakers create beautiful cards and share tutorials for this technique but the one video that I found the most helpful was the one by Yana Smakula...and although she used wood block stamps and coordinating layering dies for her tutorial,you get the idea of how exactly it is done...here is the link to her full post if you'd like to check it out - 3D Decoupage Technique by Yana Smakula

Fierce Friends Birthday Wishes - MFT Colour Challenge 74

Image
I wanted to try out my new MFT dies and stamps and what better way than to create something for a card challenge...so I made this card using the colours that were given out for MFT Color Challenge 74...I didn't plan it this way but I think this would be a great card for a little boy or even twin boys birthday..
