'Ahoy Matey' - photo Cube

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

This is the first time I tried something different and outside by comfort zone. I made a photo cube where we can add 5 photos, 4 on the sides and 1 on the top. I made this cube from a 12 by 12 kraft cardstock and used a heavy one to make this cube. I used Party like a pirate stamp set and stamped out all the images. I wasn't sure how I was going to use them but just to create more, I added the ship to the inside of the photo envelope. 





These are the sides of the photo cube. 


The top and sides of the cube. 


The above image shows how the photo cube can be used to place pictures in them. I used a couple of my own photos here just to show how to. 






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

Shadow box Halloween card

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

This is my favorite card now. I loved how this turned out and the shadow box with the witch on the inside is a wonderful touch to such cards. I have the most cutest witch on a broom image and the loveliest kawaii moon from Stampers Delights. 

How to make this card:
Take 2 pieces of 4 1/4 by 11 inch cardstock which can be cardstock A and B
Cardstock A, fold it in half at 5 1/2 inches and trim one eight of the inch on one side. The part will be the back of the card. 
Cardstock B, score at 1/2", 4 1/4" and 4 3/4" and burnish the scored lines.
Die cut any desired shape in the middle of cardstock B. 
Add strong adhesive to the 1/2" and place it right next to the middle fold of cardstock A. Fold and press it down nicely. 
Add adhesive to the remaining part of the B which is after the third scored line and add that to the back of cardstock A.
Now when we open it, it pop opens into a shadow box. 
After adding all the images, it opens up into a beautiful shadow box. 









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

Slider + Journal page - Halloween is here

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

Everyone loves interactive card especially when there is a cute witch who is flying to the moon. What makes it better when we can also add a journal page which is colourful to go along with it. I have a video tutorial on how to make a slider card and the journal page. 

I used distress inks for the cards and chroma burst from expressions crafts to add colour to the page. I did some heat embossing to the journal page. 














Thank you for stopping by and hope you all enjoyed the card.

'Altenew' stamp cards

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

I am excited to share some cards made using stamps and inks from Altenew. Altenew stamps are the first stamps and inks I bought when I started crafting. They are very close to me and I love the vibrant ink colours. As they started with layering stamps, it solved my biggest problem which is colouring flowers. The mini ink cube sets are the best for layered stamps. My all time favourite stamp is Camellia and the flower is huge and absolutely stunning.

Below, I have 3 cards made using stamps and inks and I will be entering into some challenge mentioned at the end of the post.

CAS Fairytale friends card

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

I am back with another CAS card using Fairytale friends from Your Next stamp. YNS is my all time favourite stamp brand and they have the most cutest stamp sets ever. 

To make this card, I used the deer and rabbit from the stamp set and stamped them onto a white cardstock which I coloured and fuzzy cut them out. Since I didnt have grass and clouds stencils, I made them myself. I had a grass die which i die cut from scarp paper and used the negative space as a stencil. For the clouds and just cut it out from old carsdstock. I stenciled the clouds and the grass. 

I had some flower and leaves die cuts with me for whch I used alcohol markers to colour them. I circle die cut and added to one corner of the notecard and trimmed out the excess. I added the sentiment and then added the images. To finish the card, I added a thin strip of black cardstock and some gemstones.
