Happy New Year – 2016

Hey. Happy New Yearย  ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s been a really long time since I posted here.

Life has been very busy, and this translated into me not making any blog posts. I have a toddler who has started to run(not walk). After work it’s pretty much two to three hours before she goes to sleep. And there is a ton of household work to be done after that. So I’m pretty much zonked during the weekdays.

I have been crafting then and there during the weekends, and I have been shopping as well. LOL.

I recently made a bunch of cards for New Year for my friends. Here is one of them


I stamped the Lily with Berry Sorbet(2nd generation), Berry Sorbet, and Pure Poppy on my card front. The leaves were stamped(after masking the flower with a mask made from an old envelope) with Limeade Ice and Simply Chartreuse.

The sentiment happy was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black. The sentiment “NEW YEAR” was put together using the LF Milo’s ABCs set, and stamped using versamark. I then heat embossed the sentiment “NEW YEAR” using Wow Pearl Embossing powder on a piece of white cardstock, and then wiped my onyx black ink over it. (I lost my HA white embossing powder, and don’t have black cardstock) Mounted the sentiment using foam tape, and then mounted the entire panel onto a card base.

I used the MISTI stamping tool for alignment and mass producing purposes.

As a final touch, made a few splatter with simply chartreuse to balance out the card, based on Tejal‘s suggestion. Hope you like the card ๐Ÿ™‚

Entering this card into a new challenge in town – Paru’s card making challenge.



Cardstock – Say Hello to Neenah Solar White ๐Ÿ™‚ Finally I have found decent cardstock in India.

MISTI – Yay for the MISTI. Again, another new purchase.

Stamps – Altenew Layered Lily, Lawn Fawn Milo’s ABCs , Mama Elephant Happy Everything(All stamps are New)

Inks – PTI Simply Chartreuse, Berry Sorbet, Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate, Limeade Ice, Versafine Onyx Black

Embossing Powder – Wow Pearl Embossing Powder (New)

So almost everything except the inks are NEW. Technically these(MISTI,Altenew Layered Lily, Lawn Fawn Milo’s ABCs)ย  are not new because I used them on my daughter’s birthday invitations but they are new to my blog so ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s my daughter’s first birthday invitation in case you were curious. Sorry for the poor picture. That is all I have of it ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


I’m hoping to be more regular on my blog(Since I’ve cleaned up my craft closet and gave away unused stuff to the kids in my neighbourhood)Thanks for stopping by, and checking my blog even if I was MIA ๐Ÿ™‚
