Cute Little Wizard

Wednesday, 29 November 2017

I had received a few Halloween themed dies in my Sizzix DT kit and I found this wizard die the cutest of all.It's known as Sizzix thinlits die set- Spooky and it consists of a total of 8 dies which can be used to make two different wizard characters.

To create that 'spotlight' effect, I sponged a couple of distress inks(fossilised amber, spiced marmalade) after  masking the area. Then I smeared the area with some glue and sprinkled a little bit of Papericious Frosting powder to give that beautiful shimmery effect.

I hope you liked it.

Hello friends ! :)
 How are you all doing? I haven't been active around here lately and today I want to share a few of my pending posts. So expect a series of posts from me in the next day or so. In this post, I'm sharing a few of the envelopes that I made about a month ago. Few of these feature some watercoloured florals, while a few are made using die-cuts. 
Here they are :-

The above set of three envelopes are made using textured cardstock in pastel colours. Watercolouring was done using Gansai Tambi watercolours.

The above envelope three little roses as embellishment, made using Sizzix Thinlits - Flower scallop,mini die set(#661788)

The above envelope features Sizzix Bigz die- Moroccan Flower(#661713).

These are few of the envelopes I made in the last month. Will be sharing more cards on my blog soon.
Have a great day !

Magic Is All Around

Tuesday, 3 October 2017

Happy October friends !

I like this month for many reasons. One, for its not so hot, not so cold weather here in India. Second, for the festive and celebratory feel all around. And third(and personally most special reason): it's my daughter's birthday month. :)
Although we don't celebrate Halloween here, but for someone who has grown up reading Harry Potter and the likes, it sure is one occasion that has always intrigued us as kids :)

Today I'm sharing a Halloween-themed card made using the Chapter 3 release die from It's known as Sizzix Thinlits- Witchcraft die set designed by Tim Holtz.

Isn't this die fabulous ? It comes as a set of 3 dies, one is the 'witch' that you can see on my card, the other is a template die for stars and there's also a 'cat' die which I didn't use here. 

I masked and sponged a portion of the card using distress inks( spun sugar, abandoned coral, seedless preserves, faded jeans, black soot) 

Sentiment is hand-written as you might've already guessed.  Love that quote ;)

So are you inspired to make some 'magical' cards ? Head over to for more inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by.

Pop and Twist Card

Wednesday, 20 September 2017

Hello friends! 
 What are you all upto? As for me, I'm enjoying participating in a few ongoing challenges these days.
Today I'm sharing a very interesting interactive card idea known as Pop and Twist card(scroll right to the end of the post if you wish to watch the little mechanism video of today's card).

Here's the front of the card :-

Pretty clean and simple, isn't it? 

Now check out the picture below to see how it pops open :-

A closer view of each of these panels:-

All the images used on this card are from My Favorite Things stamp set- Harvest Mouse. Colouring is done using Zig cleasn color real brush pens. I LOVE how vibrant they are. 

To make the interactive element, I followed a beautiful video tutorial here -- 

I have also added some glossy accents over the apples on the front of the card. Check out the picture below to have a closer look-
