This is an OPEN SWING CARD. The yellow panel is a movable part.The green panel is adhered t0 the base cardstock and the yellow panel is pushed in without adhering. The area where all the 3 carstocks are together is punched and a brad is attached to it so that the yellow panel can be moved.
This is how it looks when slided a little.. The message can be written on the base cardstock.Its a fun card .. You must try it out.

Here I made the main image on another paper and adhered it to the main cardstock.. Bordered it with mosaic overlapping the main image paper too... outlined the yellow mosaic with sky blue 3d outliner from Fevicryl.

This is a card I made with the CRAYON RESIST TECHNIQUE.(click for tutorial)

I drew the leaves on the white card stock and outlined them with white crayon.. used two inks(blue and red) and sponged the front part of the card stock..The parts which had crayon on them didnt catch ink. Then I cut out a leaf from a thick green hand made paper and stuck it to the pale yellow paper which was decorated with the tendril(used a 3D outliner from Fevicryl) and a simple tag and adhered to the main card stock .

Thanks for looking .

Have a nice day!


STAMPS: 1.Little Shapes from SU! for the cake

2.Stars & swirls from SU! for the star border

3.Tags & more for the candles

I highlighted the main image(cake) with oil pastels,glitter pens and colored the candles with markers... the stars as the borders are stamped 10 times... then highlighted with dark pink glitter pen..

Thanks for Looking!

Here is the sunset scenery card that I was wanting to make from a long time and I finally DID it.
  1. Water colours
  2. Sponges
  3. Stamps
  4. Post-it-notes
  5. Black marker
I took a yellow ochre card stock and used a cut Post It Note as a mask for the sun.
Sponged yellow chrome water colour on the entire card stock(cs).

Mixed a darker orange and red color and sponged it on the upper half of the cs. Blended the centre with the sponge used for yellow chrome.Blending gives a more natural look.
Sponged black ink both on top and bottom of the cs.

Removed the Post It Note and stamped the image. Gave a little orange line on the sun

Used a black marker to border the cardstock. It acts like a faux layer.Highlighted the stamped image with orange and green markers.

Assembled everything together. Completed the card.
Hope that Helped!
Have a nice day!

Quilled Wildflower

I quilled this one with my new quilling tool. Having a quilling tool makes quilling so very simple.
I glued the quilled pieces to the golden card stock. Assembled everything on the main Maroon cardstock.
I recently tried distressing for the CAS challenge card (here for the sentiment) and I must say the look it gives is great.
Thanks for looking!
Have a nice day.

Here is a card I made by using JUTE STRING. You can use it as a base for any of your embellished or quilled cards. Here's how to do it.
Start with curling the string holding it in your hand. Use a strong glue to stick it.
Once you have an adequate size stick it to the main card. This makes the coiling process easier.
This is how it'll look after completion. Ofcourse the size of the circle depends on your preference.

Here is the close up after is added the quilled flowers and leaves.
