Helllllooo friends! It's time for another challenge at Lia Stampz and this time it's 3 R's!

Sentimental Sundays: Birth Flowers

Hello everyone! I hope you guys are doing good. I am sorry for not visiting your blogs, I am still not well enough. 

I was asked by Calypso of Sentimental Sundays to join their team, I wasn't this ill when I said yes and now I think I wouldnt be able to do justice to their challenges. The challenge this week is "Birth Flowers", I made this card well in advance otherwise I would have to skip my first post.
You can use your birth flower or just get inspired by them. I took inspiration from my birth flower (lily of the valley), and used the colours white and green for my card.
This is one of the cards that was sent to Tejal on her birthday.

The flowers are handmade, you can find the template for the white ones at Mel's blog. The center is a simple fringe flower coloured with Crayola markers.
I am sorry I thought I will be able to handle a detailed post but I am still not well. Here are some detail shots, I hope you will get the idea.

ETA: Feeling better, thought I'd continue :)
The PP and butterfly are both digi prints.

The frame is Silhouette cut and sentiment is HA.

The doily is also Silhouette cut. I hope you can see the scoring below the PP.

Guest Designing at FYI


Hello friends! This is one quick and to the point post. Bloody migraine.

I am guest designing today at FYI. Stephanie of FYI sent me a gorgeous inspiration picture (shown below), I was so drawn to it and I knew what I had to do.

Challenge #16 10-20


All the flowers, except for the little ones, are handmade. This was made way before the migraine started so you can see I have put in quite a lot of work in this.


You can see the yellow-gold paint spatters and copper glitter balls (Pie Lane) here.

04102011472 This was part of a candy I won at Trina’s blog. I added few chunky glitters (Pie Lane).


Added faux stitching around the top embossed layer. Applied a bit of pearl paint to glam these flowers a bit more.


Finished it off with a fancy bow and button.

I have started my homeopathic meds for the migraine. I hope it gets better soon.

See you soon!

Rotten Pumpkins in Glittery Goo

Looking for DYSU-GD post? Click HERE

For Pie Lane post, click HERE



Hello everyone! Today I bring to you GingerLoft’s challenge and the theme this fortnight is “Halloween”. You can create anything you like as long as it fits the theme, you don’t have to use a digi image to enter.

For this challenge I made a tag which can also be used as a door hanger.


This scalloped shape is a new one I drew, the scallops are more circular on this one. I have tried to give the scalloped part a glossy look.

The image is called Pumpkin Scene, I have shown the pumpkins as rotten and stinky. Can you see the green smudges outside the image? I made those by applying Inchworm Green Crayola marker on my finger tip, misting it and then thumping on a spare CS first (once only and lightly) and then on the image.

I have created a black gooey glitter mess with hot glue gun and black glitter, placed some punched glittered leaves on it.

The image is coloured with Faber Castell’s regular pencils and Crayola markers and is ink-distressed with Clearsnap (colorbox queue - Black).

That’s it for today. Thank you for the get well wishes, I still have the bloody migraine. Sometimes it diminishes and turn into a minor headache and then it just pops right back in. Do you know the feeling of “cramps” in leg muscles? That is exactly how one side of my head feels if it gets worse. I am waiting for my Homeopathic medicines, till then you will only see crappy projects from my side. Sorry :(

Challenges: The poodles parlour, My Sheri crafts, Challenge up your life, Craft your days away, One stop craft, Fussy and Fancy, Phindy’s place, CRAFT

Guest Designing at DYSU

Looking for Pie Lane post? Click HERE to visit the Pie Lane blog.
Hello friends! Today I have to show you a card, a tag and a not-so-fancy bird house! I was asked to guest design at DYSU, the challenge this week is “Use your Scraps”. Here is the first of my three creations.
All the PPs you see here are digi freebies. I tried to match a few pattern papers in my scrap box and I think these go well together.
For the sky I used, Clearsnap (Colorboxcat eye queues – french blue). The birdies are from Just some lines and are coloured with regular Faber Castell’s . I added a bit of sparkle to them.
The super cool red glittery sticker heart, purple glitter balls and jumbo chunky glitter is from Pie Lane.
27092011442 I added some hand stitching. All the panels are ink distressed (Archival Ink – Sepia)
Challenges for card: Creative belli, Divas by design,
Next up!
A matching tag! I love this tag! SO NEAT! The sentiment is handwritten. The thin yellow strip running behind the scalloped circle is a Pie Lane border sticker. It is totally fabulous to spice up your project! I think I should have added one more parallel strip.
And the last thing…
This bird house is made from scratch, I didn't use any template for it and I don't remember the measurements! LOL You can see the uneven hole? Awesome no?! haha I have used fabric dyes to colour the CS; originally Kraft.
The daisies are punched, the five petal flowers and vines are Silhouette cut. I added a few copper glitter balls as fillers. I wanted to make a fence and a cute little mail box but as I  made this for my aunt, she said NO. She wanted this one just like it is shown and I can go ahead make another one in blue with a fence and everything! LOL
The roof panels have been cut with fancy small-scallop scissors. The walls are embossed with sizzix texture plate – distressed. The roof panels are also embossed and the roof looks kinda tiled because I used a checkered texture plate.
Challenges for bird house: Stamp Insanity,
Hope you like these. I like the tag THE BEST.
Some of you asked which cell phone do I use to take pictures, its Nokia N97.
Have a great day!

The Pie Lane Blog!

Yes! We have a Pie Lane blog now and a brand spanking new Pie Lane DT. I have a card to show you today over at Pie Lane blog HERE.

Here’s a sneaky peeky…

See you at Pie Lane!

Guest Chef 2.0 – Catered Crop


Hello everyone, I have been away because I am not well. I will stop by your blogs soon.

Last week one of my cards was featured at the Catered Crop blog. I was invited by Linda to be a “Guest Chef”, so I had to make a card based on the recipe of my featured creation.

The recipe: (taken from Linda’s blog – Catered Crop)

FTR22 recipe ingredients: (you can use all the mentioned ingredients or just one, your choice)

  • Colors – Warm Fall colors: gold, yellow and green
  • Papers – Kraft
  • Stamps – hearts, sentiments
  • Color Mediums – distress inks
  • Embellishments – lace, thread, buttons, gems, beads, glitter
  • Techniques – distress, tie a bow
  • Tools – Die cuts (hearts and flourishes), rounded corners
  • Themes –Vintage, hearts


I used the heart and frame from the last card… LITERALLY, took it off from the featured card… What!?! I am not well, I can do that.

The scallop shape is traced from a template. I finally saved a template so I do not have to draw scallops every time from scratch.


The gorgeous yellow paper is from Ujjwal’s store – Handmade with Love. The flower is handmade.


Sentiment by HA, flourish by Inkadinkadoo. Frame is a Silhouette cut. The yellow gems and copper glitter balls from Pie Lane.

GingerLoft – The Colour Orange

For Lia Stampz Sketch challenge click HERE



Hi everyone! Sorry I have not been visiting your blogs to comment. I will stop by soon. This fortnight Tami of GingerLoft is challenging you to use the colour ORANGE! I have two cards to show you today.


I have used the “Pumpkin Sign” digi from GingerLoft Store. The image is coloured with regular Faber Castell pencils. All the papers used here are digi freebies. The scallops are hand cut and adorned with copper glitter balls by Pie Lane. The butterfly and fabulous diamond gem stickers are also from Pie Lane. The image’s edge is distressed by Clearsnap (French Blue - queue).

I added faux stitching and distressed the papers with Archival Ink in Sepia, I like how this makes the paper look a bit like fabric.


The beaded trim is from my stash. I finished it off with a fancy bow and an orange gem button.

Challenges: CR84FN, Cupcake Inspiration, Card Caravan, ECP, Just some lines, Marks Fines Papers,


The second card was not so much orange, this is why I made the card shown above.


This image is called “Swing on a Star” . I have used the complete set here with the sentiment. The paper used here is also a digi freebie.


I used yellow gel pen on the moon to give it bit of a sparkle.

That’s it for today folks. Please note that you DONT have to use a digi in order to play for GingerLoft challenges. You just have to follow the theme.
