3D floral love

Hello lovelies,

Hope you're all doing good! How is your Valentine preparations?! Well, today I have a valentine card made out from Altenew's Brand new product, 3D Garden Picks die set!

Oh!! I went through difficult times to get it shipped to India! Initially, I was reluctant buying it because of it's high product cost, Shipping and custom duties.  But I ordered one for me as my husband gifted me some dollars on my birthday!  The shipping and customs were like out of the frying pan but into the fire. Anyhow I got one in my hands now! There was a big sigh of relief!  Happy ending!!

Now, I got some time to play with it, so here is my card,





I took a watercolor cardstock and created my Grey BG with gentle brush strokes. Then I roughly sponged the corners with dark grey ink to get vintage spotlight effect. Love the grainy look! Then I created my focal point using Altenew's Garden picks 3d die and the sentiment is from Altenew's script die set. I connected the sentiment and the flowers using fine frames circle die from Altenew. The slit was made to create interest! Adhered my front panel to a pale grey card base! Voila!!

Hope you all liked my card!

I'm entering my card into the following challenges,

Altenew's February inspiration challenge,
( I was inspired by the Color palette as well as the single ranunculus on the Image) Ranunculus is my favourite too!!

Beautiful You

Hello lovelies,

Today I made an awareness card inspired by fellow Crafters to share with you all!

Yes,The cardmakers around the globe(around 26 designers) headed by Milka Gubo are creating thyroid awareness this month through their cards. How awesome! I came to know about Milka through her I love math challenge. I love her cardmaking style and her  favourite quote about life! For more information about the blog hop, kindly do visit her blog, here

I'm not a part of this blog hop, yet i was inspired by the talented crafters participating in the blog hop , especially by my friend Ishani (who is also a part of the awareness blog hop) to make a card to create awareness. I was really moved by the story of some artists out there who(/whose relatives) are touched by this thyroid problem and how hectic their life would be. I feel really sorry for them and hoping they would do better!!

So I kindly request you to visit Milka Gubo's blog to know more about thyroid awareness and hop along as some artists are having giveaways too!

Thank you Milka , Ishani and all the designers for your wonderful contribution to an important cause. I loved all of your cards and you all have inspired me such that I came up with a card, here you go,




Thyroid Gland looks like Butterfly, and blue Paisley ribbon is it's symbol. I used mudra butterfly stamp in my card.  Just like this butterfly coming out from this frame by fluttering her wings in the air, I wish those who suffer from this problem, enormous strength to fight back. Hope you all liked my card.


I'm playing along the following challenges,

The butterfly challenge( theme - you+ Color.- blue + Butterfly)


Stamploration theme and sketch challenge, (used theme and sketch)




Time out challenge,


The Twisted challenge, ( I used my old butterfly stamp and my favourite bubble technique for the mottled green BG. Oldie but goldie! I used my new clear embossing powder for the butterfly and my new nuvo clear drops to add interests! I used 'beautiful' diecut that was gifted by my friend Ishani. I used blue Butterfly in my card.)


Mudra craft stamps  'anything goes' challenge,


Uniko anything goes challenge,



Thank you for stopping by.

Wishing you  all a healthy life!! Happy Crafting!

Cheers!!
