Time for clear cards

Hi crafty people, 

With all the my love for transparent cards or clear cards and all the queries for the procedure of the same, I am back with a couple of clear cards to share on

Without wasting much time I will jump into the steps to make one:
Following are some easy steps for making of this card:

Stamp some floral bunches fromFlower in a Jar set with gold and color it, here I have used distress inks, fussy cut them and adhere them on a patterned paper.

Using the first panel as a base, draw the outline on a separate blank card stock. I have avoided the buds as I dont want them to stick to the card, hence giving a 3D look.

Draw the outlines on two more pieces but this time not the floral outlines, only the arc.

Stamp any background design on an OHP or acetate sheet, here I have used Quilted Love and have embossed it with Enchanted gold from Ranger. Stick the floral base cut out on it with any glue.

As you see, the glue can be visible from the other side as the card base here is a transparent OHP sheet! So, this look is a total No No!!

Stick the copy of the first base cut out on the other side to cover any visible traces of glue.

Stick the other two arc shaped card stocks to the other side of the transparent sheet. and its done!
Take a look

Sharing this project with

I have done an extra one to show it to you people about myriad possibilities with the concept of clear cards!!

Isn't it so much fun!
Hope you like this post. 
Happy crafting
with love

Its time for the Plaids!!!

Hey all,

This time I am on! It has a long time I have crafted anything in particular. Missed me? I missed you people much :)

I have been in love with the Plaids stamp from the beginning and one day I got ample time to play with the designs and had made a lot of plaid designs in every possible color that I could think at that time!

So, why not play with the plaids today? 

Without wasting much time, lets get started :)

Today I am bringing four very easy to do designs with plaids.

First Card

Apart from the Plaids stamp design I am focusing on the Solid shapes for this card.

First of all, stamp the hearts and the diamonds with your favourite colors, here I have used distress inks and highlighted them with felt pens.

Fussy cut them. Arrange them and stick them in a circular form to make flowers.
I have used a plaid made with black archival ink. I adhered the plaid design on a pale yellow cardstock and coupled it with some rhinestones and enamel dots.

Too much possibilities with these stamps!!! I bet you second me.

For the second card I have used a combination of plaids and the Monstrous Stamp for a Birthday card.
This card is very simple to make. I had preserved a plaid design on Pink which I have used for this card. I stamped and colored some images from Monstrous stamp. I made this a Shaker Card. The sentiment is from Happy Birthday to You set.

Third Card

The third is a super time saver! I have used a plaid design I had done with the distress inks and I love the look it has resulted into. Just the plaid with the skeleton leaves, Jute twine and the sentiment! And its done.

The sentiment is arranged from the Banner Alpha.

Linking this project to:

Fourth Project

The last card of the day from my side is a simple one arranged with a patterned paper, a hand lettered fussy cut sentiment and an arranged sentiment from Banner Alpha. AND Its done!

Aren't these too simple?

Card making tip: The card making becomes super easy and time saving if you have plaids earlier. I had made plaid designs earlier on different colors and these four cards took hardly an hour to complete. 
So, whenever you are free, play with the plaids ^_^
Thanks for having patience with my long posts everytime :) 
Waiting to see your designs with these wonderful plaids.

With much love

Celebrate Rakhi with Peek-A-Boo Designs

Hi all,

This time I am with a set of rakhis for the

 Rakshabandhan or simply Rakhi is a Hindu festival celebrated in many parts of India, which celebrates the love and duty between brothers and sisters. On Rakhi, sisters tie a rakhi or the sacred thread on her brother's wrist which symbolizes the love and prayer by a sister for her brother. 

As the month of August hits, we can see many colorful rakhis being sold in the local markets.
Every year I make rakhis for my brothers; so, this time I thought to make a few with the PABD stamps.

Without wasting time, lets get started:
I will try to give detailed steps as much as possible.

Step 1: I took the Mandala stamp set and had drawn the outline of one of the layers on an OHP sheet.
Step 2: Then I took Happy Birthday to you stamp and stamped the 'BEST' from there on the OHP sheet and handwritten the word Brother, and embossed it white.

Step 3 : I made a shaker RAKHI by sticking it to another paper, a lil bigger on the edges, and some sequins inside it.
Step 4: I finished it with glitter on the edges and a ribbon I had in my stash.

I made another SHAKER rakhi on Blue and have used Banner Alpha for the Word 'BROTHER'.

Now to match it up with, I made a card followed by the simple steps:

Step 1: I have stamped the middle of the Golden Cardstock with Swirly Time and the outer section with Quilted Love by masking one another with two different shades of Gold embossing powders.
Step 2: I have made some handmade flowers (though this is my second try without any die cuts and accessories), placed those with some sequins.
Step 3: A hand written sentiment and some glitters on the edges.

Its done and I am happy to see how the two background stamps can be effectively used.

Lets have a final look on the set.

I hope you all have liked the shaker rakhis with a matching card. Wish you all a Happy Rakshabandhan :)

With love
