Coffee Love #2

Hey friends,

Some time back, I ordered some Stamploration  goodies (my first) ! As I was ordering directly from US to my Indian address, I was a bit apprehensive but with the prompt help of Shery (owner of company) I got my stuff safely within 10 days of ordering. I really like the companies who goes an extra mile to help their customers. I instantly became fan of Stamploration! Thank you Shery for excellent customer service.

Today, I am sharing three wall arts (soon going to be framed) I made using their stamps. They are very simple but I think will look great on any cafe's wall ! These are going to be hanged in my hubby's office in cafeteria!




Pretty simple they are! Stamped with archival ink and colored with peerless water colors!

2016- Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop #1



It started today! My most favorite blog hop and theme ! 
I am sharing my first card which I made for my hubby's colleague, who is retiring soon. 

They says "Retirement is life's way of giving you a second chance to turn over a new leaf." It is the end of something which was there for a long and beginning of a brand new  journey, just like fall!


This is a big card (5.5 x 7.5 inches). I have used lots of MFT products. Sentiment and die cut is from PTI. I wanted to say read, travel a lot and relax . I hope it conveys that. 

Here is the close up 



Thank you for stopping by. See you tomorrow with another coffee card!

Altenew-peonies

Hello friends,

I am here for a quick post. I am sharing a card made using Altenew Peony bouquet stamp set! The flower is so large that I had difficult time deciding layout. In the end I went conventional way...framing the sentiment with images.





I have used lots of altenew inks and MISTI for stamping. 
Hope you like it!

I am entering this card at Altenew Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop
on TIME OUT Challenges Blog. Thanks Nonni for letting me know about this blog hop!


See you soon with Diwali Cards I made for this year!

Garden In a jar

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today, I am on Jane's blog and I have used the latest release stamp set Cactus 

I love succulents. I have many in my gardens in all types of containers.

 


 When I was in collage and staying in dorms, because of space constraint  I used to grow small succulents in a jam jars. That was kind of my personal garden...:). Today's card is inspired from those days. 

One more thing I would like to share. I have this habit of making masks as soon as I get my new releases. 


They are made from full adhesive post-it . I stick them on the back of the acetate and I am ready to go! This helps me to make  cards quickly and  also helps me to decide my layout.

So back to the card....
I have use a jar stamp from Life is Good  set and created a mini garden in it.



It took me a while to  select images and positioning them. I used copics to color the images.Coloring the jar took the longest...;) I wanted to paint the transparency of glass, hope I achieved it. With copics, learning is never ending process. 

I also applied wink of stella on soil. It looks better in person.


I had lots of fun making this card. Hope you will try this set out. I will soon be posting another card with same set !
