Anniversary card.


Looks like a simple shaker card ?Take another look ..


Nothing different ?Let us open it …!


Sentiment outside and images inside !
I was itching to color these hydrangeas (In Bloom : Addie's garden -Winnie & Walter) ever since I got the stamp and no-line water coloring being the only form I know I went for it! I have used traditional water colors (Camlin Artist Water Color) for coloring, I need to practice a lot to achieve realistic look! After coloring I masked the flowers and leaves and blended grey ink in background and ended up with a mess!


I had to do something to get rid of the ugly bg So I cut out the flowers and leaves.


 Plain bg didn’t look good either I ended up stamping few more hydrangeas in gray.


It’s inspired by Heather’s card again!


The sentiment is from the big, the bold and the Happy (Winnie & Walter).

Tulips in grid


Back to flowers ;) “Grid art” the inspiration behind this card(mine looks more like stain glass though), I have used similar technique earlier on this and this card. I have CASEd this card by Heather Hoffman (and have some more on the list!).


Started by stamping the tulips from In Bloom : Addie's Garden (Winnie &Walter )
 on water color cardstock with light DI. After that I drew a grid with ruler and pencil. Then comes the interesting part water coloring! Would you like to see how I went about coloring it? (No options)




The sentiment is from the big, the Bold and You set(Winnie & Walter).



I scored a grid on card base before foam mounting the panel.

You are Awesome !


It has been a while since I used the triangles on my card ;)! I have cased Heather’s card, replacing the stars with diamonds.


I stamped the triangles from Scenery: Rectangled & Triangled on the card panel.


Here is look at my scraps!


I sorted only a part of it for photos.I stamped them on leftover scraps and fussy cut them.


Glued some of the triangles on the panel and doodled on remaining ones.
Finished off by stamping “You” from the big, the Bold and You.

Chicks Again !


Chicks again! A brood of them and there is a smart one who managed to stand apart! I am addicted to using critters on birthday cards recently! Not my fault they are so cute and I enjoy coloring them especially no-line coloring. It’s a simple one layered card with lots of masking.


Initially I had planned to keep the background chicks uncolored but it looked quite flat. Needed a quick fix, what better than easy pencil coloring? I had fun dressing up some of the chicks. The chicks are from So Tweet with Evelin T Designs and sentiment from Sentimental: Birthdays (W & W).


I stamped the greetings  from  Wising you with Eveline T Designs and some more chicks inside.


Tone on tone stamping on a matching envelope. The sentiment is from The Big, the Bold, and the Happy.
