Hello

Hello dear bloggers,

Here is a card I made while we were in the US last year. The flower and leaf stamp is from Paper Source and the sentiment has been die cut from a thick carton and I went over it with distress inks and many layers of Wink of Stella. So much so that I finished my Wink of Stella on this. The rhine stones are from my stash. The images have been stamped with distress inks and coloured with water colour pencils.

Monkey and Hamster

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a card that Aleeza designed and I put it together. I cannot recall the name of the stamp which we have used for the sentiment. The coppery washi tape had to be used to cover up some stains. The monkey is 3D felt sticker from the craft store in town. The brown strip on the left is washi tape from my stash as well.


Below is Aleeza with Ginger, her class hamster who was visiting this weekend. Aleeza was so happy to have him, she being a total animal lover. In the picture, she has put Ginger in a shoe box.

Yes, the third graduation card

Hello dear bloggers,

Here is a card I made for my older daughter's bestie from our family. The image is a Prima rubber stamp which has been stamped with black Stazon. I have put a graduation hat sticker on the lady. The two small flowers have been punched from handmade paper from India while the big one has been sponged with distressed ink. The centre of the big flower is a seed which I often see lying on the green path outside where we live. I have used foam dots under the black paper and I can safely say this is almost the bestest knot I have made to date. Lol.

And another grad card

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is yet another grad card for Zeenya's bestie's parents to give to her. The stamp is a clear one from KaiserCraft while the hat and sentiment are from a Studio G cling stamp (I think). 

The red  printed paper is a clothing tag from India and the Washi tape is from my stash. The hat has been coloured with water colour pencils and an airbrush and the rhinestone on the hat is from KaiserCraft. I have used a red metallic Uniball gel pen to highlight the feathers of the bird.

Another grad card


Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is another grad card to show you which I have made for Zeenya's boyfriend. The monkey is a Kaiser Kraft clear stamp and the hat (a Studio G cling stamp, I think) has been stamped, coloured with water pencils and fussy cut. It was finally mounted on the monkey's head and I am afraid it may be a tad big for his head. The black and white strip is a jumbo sized washi tape while the sentiment is part of the set that came with the hat. I went over GRAD many times over with my black Sharpie as there were some bits that were not too well done while stamping.


I will submit this card in the following challenges:


Happy creating,

Grad card

Hello bloggers,

Here is a card I made for my older one's graduation. The tassle was made with red embroidery yarn and I am honest when I say that it took me almost an hour to make. The hat has been stamped and fussy cut and the brad was coloured with a Sharpie since it was baby pink in it's original avataar. 

The hat was coloured with water colour pencils and a water brush. The clear stamp is from Kaiser Kraft and the paper is from my stash while the sentiment was part of the set with the hat. I rolled up a small piece of paper and tied a wee bit of embroidery yarn to make the diploma and used glossy accents on the heart and the flowers.

All made in an hour


Hello bloggers,

These cards were made in an hour for my older one, Zeenya as she wanted to give them to her teachers before she leaves school as she is Grade 12. I have used a Penny Black wooden stamp.

 I know these cards are very simple yet that is the best I could do with the time I had in hand. 
 I dressed them up with Sakura gel pens. The bird has been coloured with Sakuras over the stamps. Washi tape - some plain and some with shine to finish them up.
