For my card, I used Wearing Spring image and turned it into a birthday card. The best part about this image is that, it can be used for various themes. I used pink colour of the card and added pattern paper for the background. I used a pre-coloured image from set. All images from The Paper Shelter have pre-coloured images which sometimes makes it easy for projects.

'Baby in box' - baby cards

Hello there,
Welcome to my blog and follow my work on social media. 

I have 2 simple baby cards made using one stamp set - Baby in box. Its an adorable stamp set and can be used to make baby cards or art journal or tags and much more. I used dye inks for both my cards and did repeated stamping for one of the cards. 


Card 1 - Ink blending


To make this I used Turquoise and Lavender violet ink and blended them together for the background. 
I stamped the images, coloured and fuzzy cut them. 
I added the background to note card and added a strip of black cardstock
Using double sided foam adhesive, I added the images and the stamped sentiment
To finish the card, I added some stars from It's a boy stamp set and added some liquid pearls. 




Card 2 - Repeated stamping


For my second card, I did some repeated stamping. 
I inked a white card stock with hot pink ink and let it dry completely. 
While the ink was drying, I stamped, coloured and fuzzy cut the image. 
I used the teddy image from the set and did repeated stamping on the inked piece. 
I trimmed down the cardstock and added it to a note card along with a strip of black cardstock
Using foam adhesive, I added the image to the card.
I finished the card, by adding a sentiment and liquid pearls.



Thank you for stopping by and hope you all enjoyed the card.
Stay happy and keep crafting.

Hello there,

This card is made using Tropical fun from The Paper Shelter for Challenge #450 where the theme is Digital image.

Isn't this is fun image????
I used dots and strips pattern paper for the background. I used light blue background for the sky and darker blue die cut waves for the sea. I added some green die cut leaves and flowers. Fortunately I found a perfect sentiment that goes with the image.

Name plate

Hello there,
Welcome to my blog and follow my work on social media. 

With festive season and wedding season here in India, gifting handmade products to near and dear gives us happiness. I have a new project here using Shubh Vivah paper collection from Swati Craft Corner. This will make a gift for newly weds or for house warming. 

The paper pack is Indian wedding theme and has gorgeous bright colours that compliment Indian weddings. They can also be used for other themed projects apart from wedding. 


How to make this:
I took an MDF base measuring 9 x 12 inches and painted the back side using chalk paint. Gesso can also be used instead of chalk paint.
I measured the same on 12 x 12 pattern paper and cut out the same. 
Using Mod Podge, I pasted the pattern paper to the MDF base. 
Then, I added element sheets and some chiplets that come along with the set. 
To finish the nameplate, I added some flowers, leaves and sealed the sides using a gold washi tape.
