Love you so birdy much!

Heyyya My Crafty Friendsss!! :)

Summers here are like sitting inside an oven! The temperature goes upto 48 degree Celsius ! ACs are our only escape! 

Anyhoo, back to the card! I am playing along a few challenges this week and here is my card!

I stamped "So Tweet" stamp from Winnie & Walter over the card base and colored using distress inks-  Mustard Seed and Wild Honey. I colored the sentiment and side pane using navy blue colored water color from Mr.Huey's water color set. I also stamped the moustache stamp from the same stamp set. The sequins are from Bo Bunny.

Here is a close-up of my coloring! Those chicks are so cute! :)

Well, I won a Winnie & Walter Gift Certificate at Coffee Lovers blog hop!And so, I bought myself a "So Tweet" stamp set. It is really an  adorable stamp set! :) I won Outside Inn Traveller Mug as a flash prize too! :) This one->
Isn't it cool and pretty?!

Muse Christmas Visions- Guest Designer!

Hellloooo Dearrrr Craftersss!! :)

I am so delighted to say that I am Guest Designing at Muse Christmas Visions Challenge! Ardyth surprised me by asking me to join MCV! :)

Check out what I have made-

For this one-layered card, I have used STAMPlorations- Yuletide Cheers stamp set. I stamped the green bauble(using Mowed lawn Distress ink) and masked it. Later, I stamped using Fire brick distress ink. I masked both the baubles to sponge the background. Then, water colored them and added accents of white stars in the background! :)

Hope my card inspired you all! It would be great if you all could join in this week- you may create any Christmas themed or winter card inspired from this card!

Thank you so much Ardyth for this superb opportunity! :)

Check out what I made -

The stencil is from ARTplorations - Hearts all over! I have tried everything to make this card "Grungy"! ;)

I sponged the distress ink over the card and dabbed white pigment ink for grunginess. I also used up the remaining colors of the stencil from my last card and inked up the background! ;)

The offset stencilling was done using black  marker. The sentiment is from STAMPlorations- Bloom Sketches. If you have missed checking out my previous blog hop cards, check them out here-  Day1 and Day2.

STAMPlorations Mid-month Reminder for Sketch and Theme!

Heyyaaa All!!

I have a card to share with you all for STAMPlorations- Mid month Inspiration!

As you know, the theme is


The sketch is this

I made this card using both sketch and theme! :)

The Stamps used are STAMPlorations "Trendy Butterflies" and "Bold Sentiments- Hashtag Authentic". These are two of my many favorite stamps from STAMPlorations! :)

For the card, I masked the sentiment area using a tape and started sponging as shown. I love this color combination- it is Seedless Preserves and Peacock Feathers fromTim Holtz distress ink. Then I clear embossed these flutters and a swirl stamp from one local shop. I lifted the ink from the paper. This is one extremely useful technique and gives off beautiful dreamy effect on your card! :)
I enjoyed adding slpatters to the card! Always brings out the child in me..hehe! ;)

Before ending, I want to share a thing with you all!

Ladies, do you remember this Calendar that I had made last year in Jan? I hope so!
My hubby was bored of the background and he asked me if he could alter it! That was a surprise to me as he doesn't craft or is never anywhere near crafting! ;)
 He took up this challenge for himself and the calendar background which was like this----

Was made to this! He made the base red and adhered a pattern paper in the background for the new look. He also extended the base so that my altered bottle could accommodate! 

I gladly took the pic of my new altered Calendar background that he made! I am loving it !! What do you think? :)

Hope you had fun stopping by!
Always love what you wanna say! 
Hugs xx
