MIM # 62

Hello everybody,
Gosh! good to be back home. But that means a lot work! Yes, today has been crazy. had to bring Charlie my puppy from Pet Motel, he has diarrohoea. Looks like he missed us a lot. Moreover, our town had thunderstorm yesterday and he did not cope well with other dogs barking. Then lots of washings, shopping for groceries, taking kids to music lessons and on the top of all this, I also had house inspection! So massive cleaning.ย  All done and dusted now. Have a headache now but atleast all work is done and Charlie is much better.
I had making cards for MIM #62, on my list to do for today. That was one of the reasons why I finished all my other jobs quickly and systematically. Time Mamagement aha! I found some time this afternoon to make my Make It Monday Challenge #62 – Step It Up, Layering. Check it out, Betsy has loads of information in the video. Will definitely be useful.

I picked this sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping blog because I could not play this sketch and it is one of my favourite sketch. I used this sketch as the base for my take on MIM.

Here is my take on the challenge.
ย This is the first one layer card.

Here is the second card where I added couple of layers.

The final card where I have added more layers and embellishments ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are all the three cards together

I wanted to keep it Clean and Simple yet steping up layers. I think I have achieved it ๐Ÿ™‚
I throughly enjoyed playing this challenge ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks you so much for the challenge and also stopping by! See you soon.

MIM #45

Hey everybody,ย 
One more day until holidays starts Yay! I watched PTI’s MIM video today and made a card for Make It Monday #45.
This technique is very cool. Colouring using copics on embossed images:)
Here is the link to the video by Lisa Johnson.
And here is my take on the technique.

I used Four of a Kind stamp set from Papertrey Ink and embossed the image using white embossing powder. Then coloured with copics and also did some shading. The sentiment tag is a printable from Papertrey Ink released during the anniversay celebrations. Here is the link to the printable tags.
This is a very cool way of adding colour and texture to a card especially against the dark background. Thanks for sharing the technique, Lisa!

Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday cards, Make it Monday, PTI

Happy Birthday!

Second post for today. I had sometime to play for this week’s Make It Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink. Here is the link to the challenge and video- It is called Layered Background with Sentiment Stamps.
Here is my take on the challenge. I took a modern approach to the technique shown by Betsy.

ย I used stamps from PTI’s Big Bold Wishes and Inside Out Birthday to stamp the background using half strength grey ink layered with full strength grey for Mums flowers from Year of flowers collection also from Papertrey Ink. I then cut out a colored version of Mums flowers to add a pop of color to the monochromatic background. Rhinestones for bling.ย  Love how it turned out. Hope you like it too ๐Ÿ™‚
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Wednesday ๐Ÿ™‚

Creating background

ย with multiple stamps is this week’s challenge at Papertrey Ink Make It Monday.
Here is a link to the challenge and video.
Here is my take on the challenge. I created my background usingย  PTI’s Daydreamer, Flower Fusion #8 and Butterfly Dreamsstamp set.
I loved combing bright and cheerful colors. Hope you like it too.
Tomorrow eveningย  my son is playing guitar (classical) and I need to wear something formal. I am so confused and don’t know what to wear.ย  I have a few options. Hoping to wear them and see how they look on me before I decide which one I go with. Got to go now.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

My DS has his friend’s birthday party this Saturday and this gave me chance to make a birthday card for a tween boy. I also got a chance to use PTI’s Make it Monday technique challenges on the card. Here is my card.

I have used cardstock, ink and brads from Stampin’ Up!, pattern apper from Basic Grey and Bo Bunny, Stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink and lace trim from Kaisercraft.

I also used Make It Monday techniques ofย  sponging using die negatives, distressing, inking the edges all in one ๐Ÿ™‚

I love how the card turned out. Gorgeous colors and distressing. Hope the boy likes it. My son loved it and is sure his friend will like it too ๐Ÿ™‚

Impression Plate Tricks #1

Wow! I managed to make a card for Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday-Impression Plate Trick #1.I had just half an hour in the evening. I sat down to make a card using one of the challenge sketches for this week but ended up making this card for Make it Monday! Here is my take on the challenge:
I have used PTI’s edger die and then the music impression plate to give some texture. Then very lightly rubbed Tim Holtz’s distressed ink over it and more on the edges of the card base. On the top 3/4 of the card, I stamped PTI’s Mums stamp and leaves. I then layered with Kaisercraft lace, Prima ribbon, floss and Prima flower. Sentiment is also from Papertrey Ink.
The card came together quickly. Love this card. One of my favourite. Hope you like it too ๐Ÿ™‚
Got to make dinner now. Have a great evening!

Distressed edges

Hi everybody,
My mom and dad are here with me. So nice catching up with them and having them at home. Noise level is high but its one of the nice kind of high noise level ๐Ÿ™‚ All of us talk at the same time and therefore its loud lol! Kids are also having good time with them. So it took about three days to actually finish a card. Shocking isn’t it? I just did not have time to craft! Today, my DH has taken them out and so I got some time to finish off my card for this week’s Distressing challenge at PTI. Here is my card:
I have used Prima Marketing papers, PTI and SU cardstocks, Stamps from Wplus9, PTI and SU, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, wrinkled ribbon, jute from SU, flower from Prima Marketing and Tim Holtz’s Stickles. I love doing layers on my cards now a days. Trying my best at getting distressed and shabby look to my cards. Distressed layers are awesome ๐Ÿ™‚
Thanks for the challenge ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to see whats next!
