Monster pumpkin

Hello lovelies,

Happy weekend every one. Today I have an unusual card to share with you all. The unique feature is it's shape. Here you go,




I learned to make this star- effect shaped card from YouTube. The digital images from create a smile stamps are watercoloured by me. Those monsters look like pumpkins to me because of the fall colours I chose. What do you think? I added some star sequins and glitter splatters to the ink smooshed galaxy background.

Below is a small boomerang video of my card.



Hope you all liked it.

I have created depth to my card by adding vellum that gives frosty look to the BG. Finished my card by adding gumdrops and a bow to create interest. Hope you all liked it.

Poppy Meadow Peek-a-boo card

Hello sweeties,

Happy Morning Friends. Today I created a card with beautiful background by stamping on wet  and splatter technique using distress inks. I included interactive Peek-a-boo part and finished off with sentiment in my mother tongue Tamil. Here you go,



The sentiment pookalae sattru oyivedungal ..aval vandhuvittal aval vandhuvittal ... Is from a Tamil movie 'I' in which A. R. RAHMAN sir's  mind blowing music composition will move everyone's heart and so is the lyrics by lyricist Madhan Karkey. Coming to the meaning, we all know that flowers are so gorgeous and make everyone to go aww. She arrived(new born baby girl/girlfriend/ lover/wife) and so the flowers can take rest for a while which means she makes everyone to go awwww...and say how gorgeous she is!!! She gives holiday to all the awwww things in the world. 😀💕

Below is a small video showing the interactive part of my card. Hit the play button and enjoy!!


I made one more card in cas style with leftover scrap from the above card with sentiment in Tamil "Unnai Ninaithu" which means "Thinking of You". Here it is,



The circle window was hand-cut by me. And sentiments also handwritten by me. Hope you all liked my cards. I made these cards for a friend who wanted the sentiments to be in Tamil. 

I'm entering my cards into the following challanges,

CAS mix up challenge

Flipping whale

Hello friends,

I got some time to share an interesting interactive card with you all. Here you go,


My darling whale from lawn fawn can do a terrific flip. Do you want to see? Here is a small video for you all. Hit the play button to watch it.







Do you want to know how I made this? Well, I was inspired by a talented artist Connie Stewart at youtube. Later I came to know Sandy Allnock ( well known fabulous crafter) also made a card after her. So sharing both of their making videos here. Click the links and learn to make one for yourself. It's so interesting and fun.
