Toot Your Own Horn!

Hey All,

Welcome to a new CAS-ual Fridays Challenge.

Use your blog header as inspiration to make a CAS card. If you don't have a blog, then you can choose a blog header of your favourite crafter to make your project. Make sure you mention that blog's name on your post:)

This week's sponsor is Amuse Studio.

Amuse Studio is giving away $35 gift certificate to the winner:) I really love their inks:)
Here is my take on the theme.

I made my own blog header using Deasy Design's digital stamps. The set I used is called Aero Boy. I used the same set and made my card.  The sentiment is from Up Up Away Sentiment from PTI. Hope you liked my card. Now it is your turn:)

Want to see what the other DT have done using this theme? Check it out @ CAS-ual Fridays Blog.

Cannot wait to see what you come up with. Exciting!

Thanks for stopping by!
This is my second post for today If you are looking for my first post on AnnaBelle Stamps, Click HERE!


Say it in......

Hi there!

Time for another AnnaBelle Stamp's Weekly Challenge.
This week say it  with a sketch.
 Here is the sketch for you.

I love when sketches are simple and left to my imagination to use it. 
Here is my take on the sketch. So I made a vertical card with a window on it.
This is how the card look from the front.

And this is how it looks when you open the card.

I have used Christmas Scene Baubles and Gifted Swirls stamp sets from AnnaBelle Stamps on my cards. I have used Sending You die from PTI for the window. I also love the bow with the bling on it. It makes the nativity window a picture frame from the card front. Love love it.

The  winner of the challenge will receive $10 gift certificate from AnnaBelle Stamps

Want to see more inspiration projects from other rest of the design teams, then go to AnnaBelle Stamps Blog. Now I cannot wait to see your projects.

See you soon!

Sharing some tags.....


A quick post today. Been a super busy day. Didn't even have time to sit with my newly arrived Cameo and work with it::(  Anyway, I am sharing some tags I made for PC submission but didn't make it.

I like these tags because of the white embossing on white cardstock and pastel colours. I like the pastel colours. Just have to remember to use them more often. I have used Admit One and Pa Ra Pum Pum stamp sets from Lawn Fawn!

Now that I have sometime to do more cutting with my Cameo, I better use the time:)

I have some exciting news to share over the next few weeks. Cannot wait to spill the beans. Excited!

EEK! - Hybrid card


A quick post sharing a card I made using Uniko Studio EEK digital Stamps and Eclectic Halloween Digital Paper.

I used the png files to make my card. Here is how I did it. I opened 4' x 5.25' size white background on photoshop.I then opened the spiderweb png file and dragged it into my white page. Resized the web by hitting Ctrl T. Then moved it to the top left corner. I then opened the spider png file. Dragged it to my white panel. Resized it by hitting Ctrl T and moved the spider on top of the web. Then I flattened the layers and printed it out. I then trimmed off about 2 inches from the longer side. I then opened the EEK label. Dragged it on to the another white page. Resized it too and printed it out. I then fussy cut it out. I also prinnted the stripped pattern paper from the Eclectic Halloween Collection. Trimmed it to about 2.5' x 4'. Adhere it to the Royal Velvet card base. I tied a bow using green hemp twine from AnnaBelle Stamps to the white panel. Adhere the EEK label using foam squares. Attached the entire panel to the card front using foam squares.

Love using digital stamps as I can increase or decrease the size of the images as I want and place them whereever I want on the card. Hope you like my card.

Have a great Saturday!

AnnaBelle Stamps: Topical Tuesday!

Hi Everybody,

Welcome to my very first video tutorial for AnnaBelle Stamps' Topical Tuesday. I am a bit nervous about doing the video but I have done it. There are a few mistakes in there. Please bear with me, as I shoot more videos, I will correct my mistakes and make it better.

Today, I am showing you a technique called Two Step Stamping using regular stamps. I will be using Daisy Delight, Background Builder Designs 2 and Shape it Up stamp sets from AnnaBelle Stamps.

Here are the cards I made using the techniques.

Here is the video showing the technique.

It is a simple technique but makes a bold statement. Hope you get to work on a project using this technique and upload your project ot the gallery @ StampEmbellishCreate website. Just tag tt033.

Thanks for watching my video.

Warm Wishes!

Well, today is my Mad Monday! As the name suggest, it was mad this morning with dropping Aditi at school, taking Sid for his orthodontist appointment, then dropping him back to school, come home, put clothes on clothesline, take Charlie to vet for his vaccination and now I am back home and it is noon!!! Anyway, it is nothing new. Mondays are always like that.Atleast I have plenty of work done.

But now that I am free, I can blog and share my card I made for Retro Sketches #29.
Here is the sketch for you.

Here is my take on the challenge.

Cardstock: White cardstock Wplus9, Pure Poppy PTI
Stamp set: Winter Wishes from Wplus9
Inks: Archival Jet Black Ink, Garden Green from SU
Accessories: Rhinestones from Kaisercraft, Green baker's twine from Twinery, Take Three die from PTI

When I saw Laurie's first card, I so wanted the Take Three die from PTI. I then bought it and never got to use it. So when I saw this sketch from Laurie's card, I jumped up and quickly made the card using the Take Three die:)  Gorgeous sketch from Laurie's gorgeous card. Thank you!

Uniko Studio September Release

Hi Everybody,

Looking for some new stamps and papers?
Uniko Studio is releasing five new collections today. Yay!

You would have seen all the sneak peeks at Uniko Studio Blog for past few days:).
Today you get to see some projects from me made using the new stamps and papers.

I will start with the clear stamp sets which are to be released today.
They are called Wonderful Washi and Label Love: Thank You

And here is my project using the two new clear stamp sets.

I made a card set and also packaged them. Here are the set of cards.

I have used Background Builder-Lattice also from Uniko Studio on the background. I then used the Wonderful Washi as the banner and Label Love: Thank You labels on it. Love the stationary look of the cards.

And for the next card, I have used Classic Autumn Collection and Classic Halloowen Collection digital papers. I printed the gingham papers from both the collection and used PTI Autumn leaves dies to diecut leaves. For the background I have stamped the solid and outline leaves from Pure Florals-Gerbera stamp set also from Uniko Studio. The sentiment is from the new Label Love: Thank You stamp set.

In this next project, I have used Eclectic Halloowen Collection digtal paper and EEK! digital stamps.

Love the papers in this collection. Beautiful colours and lovely designs as well.

And for the next project, I have used both the Eclectic and Classic Halloowen Collection digital papers. They combine very well together. Love it. The sentiment is from EEK! digital stamp set.

And finally, here is a card using Bright Butterflies Additions digital papers and stamp collection.

Hope you liked my projects using the new releases from Uniko Studio. All the new stamp sets and digital paper collection are available for purchase from Uniko Studio Shop from today.
