Foam Stamps Tutorial

Hey all!!

Today I wanna share a small tutorial on how to make your own foam stamps. Got inspired by many videos on youtube. Here is my version.. :)

These are the few foam diecuts or whatever I found in my stash. I didn't like the color and I'm not going to use these anyway but don't want to throw away. So I thought why not turn these into a stamps?? :)

To make these stamps all you need is bottle caps, foam adhesive and foam things..
And that's it.. :)

Final result. Sorry about the poor stamping.
Hope this tutorial is helpful..

Thank you!

Daddy's Little Girl

Hey all!!

I'm here to share a card made for Little tangles #7, I so love the sketch.. :D


And here is my take on the sketch.. :)

I love working with kraft cardstock. Though it's a baby girl card, instead of pink I used green just for fun.. :D
Sentiment is handwritten. 

Well..Tell me one thing.. Are you a Daddy's little girl??
Yes! Iam.. :D

Rolled Crepe Flowers!

Hello everybody!

How are you all ??? Hope you are all doing good.. :)

I made a card for IBSIC #46 and ABNH challenges.
Inspired by the colors of IBS, lovely colors.. :)

Here is my card!

The background of the card is a translucent golden cloth, that I've recycled from an old wedding invitation.
I rolled those crepe papers and colored them with chalk colors.. :) I had so much fun in making these flowers and it's very similar to quilling but I haven't used any quilling tool to make these..
Stay tuned guys for my first quilled project, I'll post it in a day or two.. :D Ahh..so excited!
Do you agree these roses are lovely ??   :D
Anyway! Added a bit of lace beneath the main floral part just to give some interest..
And that's it.. :)

Hi all!!

Would like to share few things with you..
Well.. On Feb 9th we celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. I'm at my mom's place now. My hubby came on 9th, a few minutes after his arrival I received a package from my dear friend Pooja@Reusing with quilling. Really surprised to see the things in the package. Here is the wonderful card from her. What a timing Pooja! Thank  you so much.. :)

Here is another card and a beautiful box..

Beautiful rt? After seeing her quilled things I got a strong desire to do some quilling so I went to a local shop and bought a quilling tool and few strips.. :) Thanks dear.

Ok guys..See you soon

Have Fun   ;)

Fancy Fold Card


I'm back again with a fancy fold card and I can say this is a kind of 'waterfall card'. Got inspired by pinterest.  These days I'm going crazy with the shabby chic thing and blings. I'm more clean and simple but now I'm trying to come out of my comfort zone. I'm trying my hand at many styles and techniques.. Let's see how it goes..:)

Sorry if I'm boring you with the same color combo..
This is the front view, the paisley is a RAK from Prathiba @ Shristi.
Oh yeah!! I made that swirl.. 

This is how 'water falls'.. :D

I don't have many stamps so I wrote the sentiment. Actually I wanted to have some love quotes so I took a few verses from the Bible about love.. 
'Love beareth all things
Love believeth all things
Love hopeth all things
Love endureth all things'

Inside the card!!

PP - DCWV lemon flowers
Ribbon - Itsy bitsy
