DT Inspiration for ABMTTC

Good Evening Guys!!

How are you all doing? I am here with a great news. I have been chosen as one of the new DTs at A Bit More Time To Craft. This is my first DT break..So I am Really really excited.

Today I am gonna share my first DT inspiration for the ongoing fortnightly challenge, theme always is  "Anything goes". The challenges are held on the 1st and 15th of the month where the lucky winners can win their choice of 3 digi paper sets from the very talented Lozzy. There are lots of fabulous sets to choose from which can be found HERE. I am bit late in posting this card because my Grandmother got seriously ill few days back and I was a bit busy taking care of her.Here is the card.



To make this card I have used 2 digi pattern papers designed by Lozzy. First I took a black cardstock and added a digi paper from "On its way" Set. Then I added a  digi paper strip from "Its hot" set backed with a black cardstock. Next I put a beautiful pink die cut from Sonia Ma'm which looked perfect for my card. Stamped Love sentiment from Craftyscrappers "Purrfect Pair" stamp set on a piece of vellum and added it on the die cut. Next I colored watercolor paper bright yellow and stamped the beautiful butterfly stamp from Little Birdie Stamp set. Embossed them to give some dimension and added to the die cut frame. To finish off the card added dots usind black and golden pen and a few thermocol   balls painted golden.

There is still time to play along the challenge. Do come and join us.

Mixed Media Calender!!

Good Evening guys!

Hope you are doing good. Today I am here to share a mixed media calendar which I made for the ongoing challenge on ICR. After a very long time I was able to click a few shots of the making process. I created it by recycling an old wedding invitation that was all golden and very pretty. Hope it inspires you all to create something.

Here is how the Calendar turned out to be...
Mixed Media Calender


To Make This..
  • I took an old corrugated sheet and cut it according to the size of the wedding card. Then I peeled off some of the covering from the edges, distressed it vintage and added some texture paste. Next to create the front panel I took a Pattern Paper from Paper Designers "Comfortable Afternoon" and adjusted its size accordingly. Then I tore the edges a bit and distressed this also vintage.
    Mixed Media Calender
  •  To add textures to the front panel applied homemade texture paste through a few stencils from Little Birdie. Also stamped Mudra's Script Stamp here and there. Then I used the pieces torn from corrugated sheet to make tree branches. To do so I rolled them,and applied glue and brown color. Finally arranged these pieces on the PP.
    Mixed Media Calender
  • Then created the calendar part. It is a free print out which I pasted on white card stocks of  double size. Punched two holes on all of them and added two rings. Then added a hanging part created using foam tape and placed a hand written 2017 on top of it. Hope this picture makes it clear.
    Mixed Media Calender
  • Finally added some hand cut flowers, two bird cages and a few stamped and heat embossed butterflies.
  • For the inside I attached one of the leaflets from the wedding card to make it stand, coated the whole inner part with black acrylic paint and dry brushed it golden.
 Here are a few more snaps..

Emboss Resist!

Good evening everyone!!

I am back again with one more card. I have made this card taking a few challenges into consideration. In this card I have tried Emboss resist technique for the first time. A few days back I got hold of a beautiful stamp set by Mudra- "Ria". So this is my first card using this stamp. And I love it so much, I think a many more are gonna come.

Here is the card..
Emboss Resist Technique

To make this card:
●I took a thick white cardstock and stamped Itsy Bitsy lace stamp with versamark white ink. Then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. To bring out the design applied vintage distress ink.
●Next applied homemade texture paste through script stencil to add some texture.
●Then added paper doily and lace distressed with Broken China Distress Ink.
●Next element was the corrugated tag colored black with Ria. She has been stamped on watercolor paper and colored using watercolor pencils.
●Finally added some handmade flowers and the sentiment "Where there is love there is life".

Another Mixed Media Card!!

Hello Friends!

A few days back I received some free goodies from Itsy Bitsy which included a stamp set and 2 ink pads. I came up with this card using this stamp set. This one is almost build along the same lines as my last mixed media card.

Here is the card...

To make this-
  • I took a white thick paper from a wedding invite and applied some texture paste through honey comb and script stencils. Then sprayed blue and black mist. Distressedd the edges with scissors and applied black pigment ink.
  • To build the central panel added a paper doily, some gauze, black thread and some handmade flowers. Then made 4 tags sponged blue of two thickness and stamped the sentiments from stamp set sent by Itsy Bitsy.They give very crisp boundaries.
  • Stamped the Main sentiment on absolute white paper to make it more prominent. Finally added the whole profject to the card base.

Emossed-dry and wet!!

Good Evening Guys!

Here is another project which I have pulled out just in time for the ICR blog hop. In this card I have used both dry as well as wet embossing.


Here is the card-


To make this card:

●I took a black cardstock and stamped Mudra's Damask stamp multiple times using Versacolor white ink. Heat embossed it.
●Then I took a paper doily and distressed it with vintage DI. Next applied homemade texture paste on card corner as well as on the doily through script stencil.
●Then attached the doily on cardstock and arranged a gauze over it. Added a Ribbon, thread and two hand made flowers. The centre of the flowers are dried seeds of heena plant painted gold.
●The central black strip is embossed using Sizzix embossing folder and rolling pin(as I don't have an embossing machine yet). To give it similar look as heat embossed one, I applied some gesso on the elevated part.
●Added the sentiment and a embossed butterfly.
●Finally mounted the black cardstock on white card distressed vintage.

Memories Layout!!

Good evening Ladies!

Today I am gonna share a layout. The theme at More Than Words Challenge this month is " Traditions". So I created my Layout based on this theme. This F.R.I.E.N.D.S. layout is dedicated to all my college friends. It was sort of a tradition that all of us used to watch this excellent series while having dinner. Over the span of  five years we watched it numerous times and can still watch more. The only problem is we have graduated  and no longer together :(. Though we did manage to have a reunion recently :). So I would like to dedicate this layout to all those fond memories.

Here is the layout:

Mixed media layout


To make this layout-
●I took an old thick sheet,  covered it with black gesso and applied texture paste through stencils. Then created the background using pink and purple sprays. Used black spray for dripping effect. Sprayed some white paint, distressed the edges with knife and tore at a few palces.
●Next I collected the embellishments and arranged them on the sheet. The picture is a printout. Flowers are handmade. The beautiful peacock feather die-cut is RAK from Preety Dutt. The sticks around the pic are actually from sugarcane painted black and then dry brushed gold.
●Finally added the whole thing to PP fromPapericious Damask Set distressed vintage. The PP used around the pic is from Papericious Vintage collection.
