Recently I've learned how to stain papers. I'm loving that old and vintagy look lately. So I went into my kitchen, brew some Coffee Decoction and stored into a plastic cup. It's easy to apply the decoction to your projects with a paint brush or sponge brush.

I applied decoction to the projects and sped up the drying process with a heat it tool. I applied second coat to the songbird die-cut for some rustic look. I actually feel that it looks like wood veneer, right?

Next I adhered the papers with Tacky Glue and popped up the die-cut with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment from Mudra in Versafine Sepia Ink and finished the card with a few golden sequins from Mudra.

And that is the card for today and I hope you like it. I have also made a video for you, Enjoy! :)

I reversed the stamp and stamped onto the paper with It's a Girl, Tiara and Sweet Sixteen, Mint to be and Melon Ice Inks. Later I stamped the outline portion of the same stamp in Midnight Ink. I fussy cut it and kept it aside. And the pretty flowers are from Beautiful You stamp set.

Onto the main card base I stamped one of the borders from Yay Stripes at the very bottom of the card with Midnight Ink.

Next I took another panel smaller than the main card base and adhered the flowers and leaves as shown above. Finally I finished the card by stamping the sentiment from Beautiful You Stamp Set in Midnight Ink

And that's all for today. Thanks so much for visiting. Take care and I will see you next time! :)

Hey hi everyone! How are you doing? It's been a while, right! ;) so today I have a very simple yet classy Christmas Card for you!

Products from Sizzix Lifestyle

I ran the Pink card stock and Trellis Embossing folder through the Big Shot Express machine. Look how beautifully it was embossed!! I adhered the pink embossed panel over the main card base with Red sticky tape.

Next, I die-cut the sentiment from Retro Merry Christmas thinlit by Timholtz out of white card stock. The sentiment looks so cool! Love it! I adhered it over the pink card stock with Tacky Glue.

Next I stamped the stocking from Fairisle Stocking on Kraft card stock in Rockin' Red Ink, fussy cut it, punched a hole and tied a bow and foam mounted it over the panel.

And that is it! I hope you like it. Thank you so much for visiting! See you soon :)

I think I  am very much obsessed with these row of houses! I just love drawing these again and again. You can check my previous posts HERE and HERE. 

First, I drew all the houses with pencil and went over it with Black Permanent Marker and I erased all the lines with an eraser.

Then I colored in the houses with W5, R24 and R29 Copic Markers. Next I fussy cut it and kept it aside!

I took another panel slightly smaller than the main card base and applied a wash of blue water color from Koi Water Colors. Once it's dry, I adhered the house panel over it.

Next I added splashes of white paint from the same Koi water colors to resemble the snow. 

Next I handwritten the sentiment and applied Star Dust Stickles for some extra interest.

I hope you like my card and I hope you enjoyed watching the video. Thank you so much for visiting. Take care and I will see you next time! :)

This color combo is very new to me and I think I didn't use these colors on my card before, I guess so!! This card was inspired by one of the cards I made a while ago. You can check that card HERE. All the products I used to make this are from Catherine Pooler Designs Stamp of Approval Naturally Inspired Collection. 

(I am a part of their affiliate program. This means that I receive a small commission when products are purchased through links I share here (at no additional cost to you). Kindly support me by clicking through these links when you shop. Thanks so much)


I started by inking up and stamping the solid feather stamp from Birds of a Feather Stamp Set  with Tiki Torch, All That Jazz and Tutti Frutti inks by Catherine Pooler Designs.

These are such gorgeous colors and I think these would be great for both boys and girls. 

Then I inked up the bold BEST sentiment from Simply the Best stamp set in Midnignt ink and stamped over the previously stamped image followed by the Friend stamp. I love that crisp, clear and clean impression which always comes with Catherine Pooler inks when stamped!

I also added splashes of black paint to enhance the beauty of the design. I hope you like it and I also made a video for you, enjoy! :D

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful time! I made these Milk Carton Favour Boxes for my neighbor's kids. These are just for sample, may be I'll make more in the next coming days!!! 

I used a few pattern papers from Prima and Mudra. I die-cut the leaves out of white card stock and colored it with Camlin Real Brush Markers!

I die-cut a few smaller tags from out of white and kraft card stocks. The sentiment was handwritten. I also added a bow with white twine and adhered the whole part to the small clothes pin.

I just love how these turned out. They are so so cute! :)

Recently I've shared these pencil colored images on my Instagram feed. They were just lying on my desk. Last night I fussy cut them and placed them in my Trinket Box. In the morning I made two cards with these images. I used Faber-Castell color pencils to color my images.

These cute stamps are from A Muse Studio called Forest Friends. I used one of the Sizzix Rectangular framelit dies to die-cut my smaller panel. I ink blended Peacock Feathers Distress Ink over that die-cut panel and adhered all the cuties with Tacky Glue. Finally splashed snow with Picket Fence Distress Paint and finished the card by stamping the sentiment from the same stamp set.

This is almost a single layer card!? I die-cut the grass border with Grass die by A Muse Studio and adhered onto my card front along with the images. Finally finished the card by stamping the sentiment from Forest Friends.

I didn't have any Christmas or holiday related stamps and dies from Hero Arts and SSS. I hope you like these cards. I'm entering these cards for A Blog Named Hero Challenge: Winter Holiday with Simon Says Stamp. Thank you :)

Hello hello everyone! I am so happy that we have entered the season of Love, Happiness and Kindness! Today I am here with a DIY project made using almost with scraps from my stash. It's a Trinket Box! I always wanted to make a project like this finally I am here with it. It is not perfect but I like it though! 

Products from Sizzix Lifestyle


I started by cutting down the card board pieces and adhered the pattern paper from Papericious. Next I applied a coat of Egyptian Gold Pigment Paint to the edges and rubbed randomly over it.

I adhered a strip as shown above for the easy opening and closing mechanism. It wasn't that good but the over all look of the box is cool.

I die-cut the leaves from Holiday Greens, Garden Greens and Meadow Leaves out of a few scrap papers and applied a coat of gold pigment paint. I adhered all the leaves forming a wreath.

I also die-cut Angel #2 from Papericious, applied Stardust Glitter to it's wings and wrapped golden time to it's body.

I adhered the wreath over the box and followed by Angel. I foam mounted the Angel for some dimension.

Finally I embellished the Angel with a few golden gems. I hope you like it :)

I love watching this kind of scenes but I usually don't find these in the place where I live. Whenever I watch these scenes on videos I feel so fascinated!! :)  


I started by die-cutting the Open Road thinlits and one of the trees from the Woodland thinlits out of several colored card stocks and assembled them. The Green and Teal colored card stocks are from A Muse Studio.

Next I placed Geo Trio Stencil from Catherine Pooler Designs and applied Ranger Texture Paste through it. I'm very new to this Texture Paste and it's a bit messy! ;)

Next I adhered the tree over the card and adhered both the pieces onto the panel with foam tape and glue.

I combined two sentiments from For Everything and Merry and Bright Boughs stamp set from Catherine Pooler Designs and stamped it with Archival Jet Black Ink.

I like this one, so cute and fun with happy and bright colors!


I have also made a video for you. I hope you like it. Thank you so much for watching. See you soon! :)
