Verve Week 2


I have a card and a new to me technique to show you today. I used VLV sketch for week 2 this time.


Can you see my colourful background? I applied Versamark on an embossing folder and stamped it on to a white CS, applied clear embossing powder on it and then heat set it. After the CS cooled down I inked it with distress inks and removed the excess off with a damp tissue.

Close up what the background looks like:


Can you see the Cuttlebug embossing folder’s design? I didn’t apply a lot of pressure otherwise I would have gotten a solid damask design, but I like how delicate this one looks.


The flower is handmade, I used the Verve stamps gorgeous tissue wrapping paper to make this and some tulle.


A big chunk of ribbon that I added in place of a CS layer by adding ruffles just to give the card more texture.

That’s all for today.

Verve and Basic Grey


Hello all you creative people! We are still having a lot of power outages here but today the weather is incredibly beautiful. It’s something like right before rain (all cloudy gorgeousness) and cool winds too!

I was rummaging through this big box of goodies that I got from Stef when I started blogging, and found some Basic Grey papers. I thought I’d have a go at the Basic Grey challenge. I used the Verve sketch for week 1.


I added a bit of gold glitter on the Basic Grey paper pieces. All shapes are hand drawn, even the round corners so I apologize in advance if its a bit crooked. I am waiting for the chomper to go on sale at least then I can get good round corners.

The sentiment stamp is from Verve.

DSC04983 I added a wee bit of stitching and some gold glitter on it.

See you guys soon!

A PlayDate with Hero Arts


Hello everyone! As I told you in the last post that it’s my first time playing for the Hero Arts monthly challenge, I wasn’t satisfied with my last card as it used only one sentiment stamp. I have another card for you today based on the colour story at PDCC, it features my only HA stamp apart from the sentiment stamps that I have.

170620121294 Oh my god, never fussy cut this stamp like I have! LOL I cut all the way between the mini swirls! Oh, by the way I used my ever loyal Crayola markers to stamp these beauties! For the sentiment I used Chipped Sapphire and then outlined parts of “You” with a crayola to give it a 2D look.


To make things a little more interesting I cut strips of blue CS, distressed the edges and glued them diagonally on a base cardstock. I added faux stitching to every alternate strip.

If you can see a bit of gloss on the butterfly… I used clear varnish (clear nail polish) on it, twice.


The frame is hand cut, I added a bit of faux stitching here as well. Here is another view:


Thank you friends for all the love you have sent my way in form of comments and emails; it means so much that you think my work is worthy of your praise. Thank you!

Leave a comment and I will drop by your place soon!

Lia Stampz: Summer

130620121266 Hello people! This post is a little late as we didn’t have electricity since 11am today.. (it’s 11:30pm now and thank God the power is back on). Anyhoo, the challenge over at Lia Stampz this fortnight is “Summer” and here is my card…


I am using “Lia Photograph” on my card today and the umbrella paper you see is also by Lia Stampz. This is a pre release so you wont find it in stores yet. The Polaroid thingy is hand cut.



I embossed the pink CS and inked it with VersaMagic cloud white. The sentiment is handwritten.

130620121265 It’s been a while since I have played with so many layers but boy I had so much fun making this one!

I have been catching up on commenting on your blogs (talking to those who commented on the previous two posts), but the power breakdown/ feeder trips is making the process very slow. I promise, if we have electricity tomorrow, I will def stop by your blog.

much love,

Sentimental Sundays: For a Special Guy (Father’s Day)

020620121212 Hello everyone! I am back with a brand new challenge over at Sentimental Sundays and this week the theme is, “For a special guy/ Father’s Day”. Our sponsor this time is Bugaboo Stamps and just like last week, we again have a bonus challenge for you if you choose to accept it, you can enter your creation twice!


I have used “Monster Block” mini set for my card. I have coloured the images using Classic Faber Castell colour pencils. The sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts. All square blocks are hand cut so they might look a bit irregular.

300520121178 Hello everyone! Second post of the day! It iis 11:10 PM here and I so wanna sleep… I have another card for you today based on the sketch over at Amusing Challenges.

sketch-3-228x300[1]Here’s my card…


This card looks so good in person! I made this for the last week’s CASE Study challenge but was a bit late in posting it.

I added a wee bit of doily to give it a lil extra touch and to enter this at the Moxie Fab doily/lace challenge. The alpha is hand drawn over some scrap cardboard, I coloured it in black and drew white dots. You will be seeing a lot of these alphas in the future because they look absolutely yummy in person!

Leave a comment and I will drop by your blog!

xoxo nite nite lovelies!
