Card #36 – Make a wish!

I have watched various crafters do the smooshing technique and it looked rather easy. I put some distress ink on a spare piece of acetate, sprayed it with water and smooshed the colors around over and over again while drying layers in between. It did feel like I overdid some parts and have to start…

Floral themed cards can be used all round the year for various occasions..and so I bought my first floral clear stamp. This is the second card I’m making using this stamo from Wplus9.

Card #32 – Ombré

Another card with  Distress inks blending into one another. With a stencil and a bunch or even just 2 ink pads, you can come up with a similar card. The process of blending in the colours soothes your nerves and to top it, the moment you remove the stencil to reveal the pattern underneath is…

Card #31 -Yay!

Made this card after a week long break and it felt GOOD! This is the first time I am using wash tape on my card. For the sentiment, I washi ‘taped’ a piece of card stock and die cut the word ‘yay’ using thinlits dies from Sizzix®. The border and sentiment from the same pattern helped…

Card #26 – Love you to pieces!

Pretty hard to make a Valentine card without any Valentine/love themed stamp set. But on the bright side, it really demands you to be more creative. Sometimes, having too many supplies makes you cozy up to do what is easy! Today, I made a top folding card. I embossed a butterfly pattern on an off-white paper from DCWV®…

Card #25 -Happy Ant-iversary

Wanting to use this Lawn Fawn® stamp set and Koi® water brush purchased long ago, I decided to go for a card with water coloured background.
