Say it with flowers

Using the same paper as here, this card was a quick card.


OLFA circle cutter, black gel pen and some ribbons. I think I could have added a few gems to it though.

And I am thinking, I need a few circle punches smaller than what the circle cutter can cut. What size circle punches do you use frequently?

Christmas is near!

Love Christmas! And so for my very first Card Pattern challenge, I chose Christmas as my theme. The challenge post is here Challenge #40 Here is my take.

Christmas is near

Papers are all from Venus Traders – a local Pune craft shop.  I {heart} the gold paper. Sticker is from Daisy and Dandelion.  



Christmas is near

Would love to know you liked this! : ) My lil baby girl Keetee seems to love it ;)



ETA: Added a couple of snowflakes on the Red panel.. it was looking forlornly

Again ETA: Changed the picture again. The previous didn’t show the gold too well.

Say it with a Birthday hat!

It’s my mom-in-law’s birthday in a few days & I made this for her. She doesn’t check this blog so it is OK (I hope) to post this early :)

Picture 67

This has the dry emboss technique – which I read online. Have a look at this link on "from my ink pad to yours" for further details.

More pictures below

What took me the most time is what embellishment to add – stones or ribbons or glitter.

Thanks for dropping by.

No patterned paper? No problem! :)

Didn’t have any patterned paper. So hand drew this. Since this was not defined drawing, I could go to town with the scribbling and colouring

Coloured using water colour pencils and ran over it with a wet painting brush.


Thanks for looking.

Flowers for you!

Here is a card with stamped flowers in a pot!
I use Fiskars scissors for edging the papers. Got the stamp in HobbyIdeas (the Pidilite venture) – they don’t have too many stamps though.

Birthday with flowers

Again using the gift wrapper to make those flower cut outs.

I made this for a Mrs. Margaret in our church choir. She sings Alto beautifully.. I loved to sing Alto  - actually sing and not just string notes together – from her. I admire her. She is seventyish and I wish I’d be as young as her when I am 50!  My husband (Polly) says I am this wide-eyed-fan of hers :D

And he is right! :))


Thanks for looking!!

A simple Birthday card

But I love this one – if I may say so myself :)



Thanks for looking.

Message in an Envelope.. yea!

I like this one. Versatile. Can be used for anything. And the envelope can also be number of anything..

Think about a bunch of hearts pouring out of the envelope.. for Val day. Well now that’s an idea :)) Will try to make one a post it.


There are a lot of free templates available online to make envelopes of various sizes and types, though I didn’t use on here.

Thanks for looking.

Happy Everything!!

Made this for a friend’s dad’s birthday.
Well.. ideally should be using patterned paper. But in India we get none – I think – if you know of any place where I can lay my hands on some nice stuff please please let me know.
So as a substitute – I’ve used gift wrapper :D.
Embellished and a little glitter bling on the background.
Thanks for looking.

Happiness Always

Made this card for my friend celebrating her fifth Wedding Anniversary – and so the five flowers.. – obvious huh! :)


Envelope has butterflies punched on the flap to match the one in the card. The butterfly in the card is actually mounted on the inside of the card.

Thanks for looking.
