Hello everybody,
It has been a long time I blogged. But I am back. 
Today I am showcasing my projects for Uniko Studio’s Super Free Saturday!
Here is the digital flower set called Summer Bloom absolutely free today only!
 You can download these digital stamps from Uniko Studio Shop.
Here are my projects using the Summer Bloom digital stamps.
I have made two one layer cards keeping the layer out same but one is in colour and the other is black and white. Here is coloured  card. The colouring was also done digital.

And here is the black and white card.

And here is both the cards together:)
 

For the coloured card, I have used the outline digital stamps and for the black and white card, I have used the solid digital stamps. Love the printed stationery look. 
Uniko Studio is also having a blog hop today using the June releases. I just came back from my vacation and  don’t have the new stamps. So I have played with the free Super Free Saturday digital stamps.

The Craft’s Meow Day #3 Preview!

Hey Peeps,
Day #3 preview of the The Craft’s Meow June releases:)

the craft's meow.
Previewing today a new stamp set specifically designed for Project Life called Sweet Memories. Designed by Nina. B, this set is perfect to make you PL cards. What a great idea? But I have used this set on a card just to show its versatility.
I have stamped the trimmed the center element (PL size card) using Sweet Memories stamp set. Since it is a stamp set for PL, I have combined this set with a sentiment from another set. Now you can add a picture of the couple to whom you are giving this card on the PL card. Then it become a photo card:) So there you go, you can use a stamp set designed for PL on a card as well:)

Gallery Idol

Round #3 extra cards

Hey everybody,
As promised, here are my two extra cards I made for gallery Idol round #3. 

I wanted a very organic background and therefore I stamped second generation woodgrain on the background of the soft stone cardstock. Then stamped the various flowers and leaves using white, orange and green inks. Then I stamped the brown cardstock with woodgrain and heat embossed the frame and sentiment. I then trimmed the framed and mounted it on the centre using the foam adhesive. I just could photograph the card to show the woodgrain background and the white flowers. It looks much better in real.
Then I made this card below using the Paisley stamps from Wplus9.

The moment I know what the theme was for round #3, I wanted to use this colour combination (navy, yellow and green) for my card. But for some reason it didn’t work out on my original card. Hence when I had an opportunity to make a third card, I used the colour combination. I accented using rhinestones. Love this card too!

And this is the card I submitted.

Which one do you like? Let me know:)

Gallery Idol Round #4

Hey everybody,
First of all I am so thankful to all of you who voted for me. I was not available to ask ask for votes as I am on a vacation and was on a cruise ship until couple of hours ago. Just could not afford internet. So thank you so much once again for all your support.
I am in round #4! Yippee! 
The round #4 theme was to use exactly 10 embellishments on the card. Well, I had packed a small package of craft supplies to craft on the ship. I am so glad I packed an assortment of embellishments with me:) I was able to make my card and upload using the satellite WiFi from the ship to the gallery on time:) Here is my card.
 On my card, I have stamped a nautical striped background using brush strokes stamp. Then layered 10 embellishments to create my card. The ten embellishments are inked wood veneer speech bubbles, gold edged circular label sticker, wood veneer anchor, twine, flair and enamel dots. I have kept with the nautical theme not just in the background but also using nautical embellishments and colours. I have used free style collage layout for my card. I really like how horizontal striped background is broken by the diagonal layout of the embellishments. I love the bright pop of reds, green and yellow against the navy striped background. 

Hope you like my card. If you do like it, please vote for me.

The Craft’s Meow Day #1 Preview

Hiya everybody,
Welcome to day #1 preview of The Craft’s Meow June Release.
the craft's meow.
The first set we are previewing today is called Beautiful Roses! Designed by Nina B, this set has beautiful roses and bold font for sentiment. Here is a card I made using Beautiful Roses!
I have coloured the roses and leaves using copics and hand cut three of them. Then layered them using glue and foam adhesives to add depth. I know the roses are gorgeous by itself, I wanted them to look real. So I used glossy accent to add dew drops on the flowers and leaves. Here is a closeup of the photo showing the dew drops.
I let the roses be the focus of the card. So I left everything just simple.
Check out The Craft’s Meow Blog for more DT inspirations based on this set.

June Cloud9 Blog Hop!

Hey everybody,
I am sad because it is going to be last blog hop with Cloud9. Cloud9 is closing after one year. I throughly enjoyed it especially playing with Wplus9 stamps. I love their stamps and Cloud9 bloghops are a great way of showcasing them. 
The theme for this bloghop is Anything Goes! 
Here is my card using the Pretty Patches Umbrella Stamp set.
I have used the umbrella for both the background and as a focal point. And the sentiment from the set simply stamped. Love the colours of red, blue and yellow together. Looks simple but a lot of stamping. Hope you like it!
Check out rest of the DT’s projects at the Cloud9 Blog.

Cannot wait to see your projects.

Gallery Idol Round #3

Hiya Everybody,
Round #3 of Gallery Idol! I am pinching myself to see if it is true that I made it to round three. And yes I have! Yay! I sincerely thank you all who voted for me in round #2. Hope you will do the same for this round too:)

 For round three, the theme was to make our own stamped background. It sounded easy yet tough for me due to two reasons. First time constraints I had. I am on vacation in Vancouver as you are reading this. And I had less than 24 hours to make my card. Secondly, I was totally zapped looking at all the stamps and deciding what to do! OMGee! deciding what to do which stamp to select took a lot of time. I made three cards but I choose this card to submit for round #3. 

I have used Plano stamp and the coordinating smaller version of Plano in the You are the Best Stamp Set for this card. I have done a lot of masking and stamping to get this graphic background. To add colours, I used Copic markers to colour. I just love the depth masking technique gives and the pop of colour. Since the background is busy and colourful, I have added two strips of black card stock upon which I have heat embossed the sentiment (from Lil’ Inkers Design) using white embossing powder. I chose this card for round #3 because the technique involved, graphic background, the depth it gives and the pop of colours.
Hope you like my stamped background. If you do like it, please vote for me.
