I have stamped the leaves in a circular way with the white pigment ink and then colored with Crayola Markers. I have added the tiny red and pinks to bring in the contrast. the sentiment is from Christmas Decor set from Mudra. for the touch of gold, I have used some golden sequins.

Hope you liked this easy project. Sharing this with:

Let it Snow

Hello Everyone,

The holiday season is on but I am the most unlucky one as I have exams :( but can anything stop a crafter from crafting? No way! So, I decided to make a quick card that I did in just 5 minutes, a one layer card.

I have used Hero Arts Snowy scene, one of the stamps that has been my favourite and was in my wishlist for long, finally got it. 

I have used Altenew inks for the very first time as I dont and havent used dye inks. So, I wanted to give it a try.

Tempted by the results, I could not hold myself from making another one by spending 5 minutes more. The sentiments are from Just Rite Paper crafts.

I hope you liked my CAS one layer card. Sharing the second card with:

Took the inspiration form the red color and the snowy scene.

Thank you and enjoy your holidays!

Birthday card with plaids

Hello all,

This is my another project on birthday cards. I have used PABD stamps. I have used plaids to create a striped background with different colors and different inks. I have used distress inks, chalk ins, dye inks and pigment inks, whatever I had in my stash.

I have used the images and the sentiments from a single stamp set from PABD - Happy birthday to you and the circle die set to cut the panel.
I loved the colors and recently I bought a whole marker set from local store, I found it pretty interesting to work with esp with the cupcakes :)

Snowy Scene I

Hello All,

I am trying with the Christmas Cards for the first time this year. I had bought some stamps last month, a big haul for me. I had bought one set from Mudra Stamp-Christmas Decor which they had released in their Christmas collection. I must say, the quality stands out!

I loved the three types of snowflakes of different sizes and designs int he same stamp set. It gives you the opportunity to play more with a single stamp set. You can find the set here Christmas Decor

I have chosen one snow flake to create a background, stamped and heat embossed the same. I have blended some distress inks on a blue hue. The sentiment is from Just rite Hapy new year stamp set.

I hope you like it and sharing this with:

Bleaching Ink : Card 1

 I  will try my best to describe the process step by step :
  • Take a card stock, cut it into a shape as per your choice, I did with a slanting line.
  • Blend distress inks. To create a depth, blend a darker color on the edges.
  • Let the CS dry naturally in open air or heat it with your tool *I did on a gas stove* 
  • Stamp an image with the darker distress ink that you use for creating depth, and emboss it with clear embossing powder. Here, I have used Lotus delight stamp.
  • Take a pinch of bleaching powder in a bowl full of water and run the water with a brush on to the images only.
  • Wait for sometime, the bleach will react and will fade the area. It can even make the image completely white.
  • Finish it off with some glitter and sentiments. Here I have taken help of glitter cones and alpha banner stamp set.
  1. Select darker colors for the cardstock so that the bleaching technique will give a contrasting image.
  2. Select smaller images that has an outline only.
  3. Be careful with the bleach.
  4. Do not let the paper soak too much of bleach water as it will eventually make it super white that I guess you would not want to.

Challenge post for Peek-A-Boo Designs

Hello there,

Today I have come with a card that I have made for the challenge post of PABD.

I have used Bubble stencil to create the bokeh effect after sponging some distress inks on to the card stock. I have used Studio G white pigment ink to create the bokeh.
I have heat embossed silver on to the butterfly die cut.

The sentiment is a combination of the happy die cuts and the Alpha banner stamp set.

Here is a closer view!

Hope you like it!

Its time for Geometry!

Hello All,

After playing much with traditional cards and floral ones, I decided to go for Geometric patterns.Then I came across Milka's I Love Math challenge. Its Pretty much interesting to work within restrictions and too with maths! 

I have PABD's Solid Shapes stamp set in stash which has triangles of varying shapes. I chose one. 

I inked my card stock with Spun Sugar, the lightest shade of pink that i have with me. Then I stamped the triangle in a pattern and embossed it with clear embossing powder. 
Then I added Festive berries and Picked Raspberry to it for the shade.

I cut the triangle-frame manually for the shaker card and the sentiment die cuts are from Sizzix thinlits.

So, I have used triangle which has three sides, three colors or shades of pink, a Birthday card and CAS as much as possible I could!

Linking this to my favourites:


I hope you have liked my card.
I will come again with a new design.
Till then
Loads of love

Diwali Card 3

Hello everyone,

Today I have come up with the third card that I have made for Diwali this year. I am finding to make the diwali cards to be more fun than any other occasion!

I have used a stencil from The craftersworkshop and applied texture paste (homemade) , a normal white one. Then i ran over my versamark ink pad over the raised surface lightly and sprinkled gold embossing powders on it. After taking this through Heat embossing, this came out with a gold embossed raised surface but more shimmery than a gold texture paste!

I added some water color to cut down the monotonous look, as its Diwali! Blended some inks through the stencils. I cut down a diya and colored it. The sentiment is from Peek-A Boo diwali stamp set! The stamp set has loads of diwali greetings both in English and Hindi. Indian friends can look over to it for the Hindi Greetings. 

I am sharing this project with:

Diwali Card 2

Hello all,

Here I come up with my second card for diwali.

I tired to create a simple card for this diwali with lots of embossing. 

I had stamped flowers from Timbers Clair's Clear stamps  with gold, silver and yes black to bring the contrast.
I blended some red and orange colors from distress ink shades and again sprinkled some gold, silver and black embossing powders randomly and heat embossed all together.

I hope you can see the shine! Meanwhile I stamped Indian Motifs from PABD stamp set and blended blue and olive green inks and cut out diyas . I made the flames by cutting and coloring manually.

For the panel at the right side I first stamped Fancy flourish from Mudra stamps and then embossed it with an embossing folder.

I hope this card pleases everyone :)

I would like to share this card with:

Diwali Card 1

Hellooo all,

Its been a long time I have crafted anything, I was stuck in my designs for companies and hectic schedules! *sigh*

The festive season is on with the Navratri and Durga Puja now and upcoming diwali.

So, for diwali I have made few cards, out of them I am showing only one as of now.

This is the first card I am sharing with you for diwali. I have used PABD stamps for this card : Its Plaid time, Lotus Delight, Flower motifs.

I have sponged the different sections with water color. I have embossed it with gold and white. The color combination is well suited for festive season. Indian festives have bright colors all around; so, the more bright it is the more merrier!

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 peek-a-boodesigns.blogspot.in

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

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
