Spread Love, No Room for Hate | Altenew Inked Flora | Z-Fold Card

Hello everyone,

I hope you all are doing well! I turned 22 last month and decided to celebrate it by opening my online store! To check out the types of cards that are available, you can click on the tab - SHOP at the top of my home page. To know how to place an order for other products, click on the tab - HOW TO SHOP?

I took a short break from crafting just after my birthday to relax for a while. Today's card features my favorite stamp set once again!

I decided that the last card of the month had to be PRIDE related! Since I always stick to the classic card shapes, I decided to make a Z-fold card. I tried a bunch of ways to get the pride colors on my flowers and loved this one the most!


I stamped the flowers and leaves on the watercolor paper by Anupam stores and colored them with my Little Birdie watercolor set.


For the card base, I used black cardstock and followed a tutorial on Youtube to get the required shape. To add a subtle effect, I added sheets from my old notebook. After arranging the flowers in my preferred arrangement, I added the sentiment from the same set!

Pastel Floral Card | Altenew Inked Flora

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all doing well!

I have always been in awe of pastel flowers as they look so subtle yet elegant. However, I have been equally scared of trying them out as it can tend to look a bit plain. When I saw the current challenge at Color Throwdown and If You Give A Crafter A Cookie, I decided to give it a go!

The card features just three colors - pink, aqua, and gold. First, I stamped the flowers and leaves by Altenew's Inked Flora set (Favourite flower stamp set) and heat embossed it in gold. I colored the embossed images in Worn Lipstick and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks by Tim Holtz.

I took a lot of time to figure out the background for the card. I tried a lot of styles but settled on these gold diagonal stripes which I drew with my gold marker. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it in gold, cut it into a banner, and added a strip of gold glitter paper around the edges. 

I tried a few placements and settled on this one. I finished off the card by gluing everything down and drawing a gold border around the edges to get everything together. I really loved how elegant the card looks!

Colorful Florals | Altenew Inked Flora

Hello everyone,

Recently I purchased a few art supplies as it had been a while since I made a purchase. I had been eying the gorgeous Inked Flora stamp set by Altenew for a while now and finally got my hands on it.

I have been meaning to paint flowers in the colors of the rainbow but I was skeptical as to how would the colors mix, would I get any unwanted shades, etc. 

So I decided to take it easy at the start and paint every petal with a separate color. I painted the flowers with my Little Birdie Half pan Watercolours set by Itsy Bitsy, do expect a review soon!


I heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set with silver embossing powder by Little Birdie. Added a few splatters of black paint and a few silver sequins to finish off the card. This card is among my most favorite projects of the year!




I loved playing with the stamp set, be sure to see many projects in the upcoming days!

Mini Book Covers Card

Hello everyone!

A Little Reading is All the Therapy a person needs sometimes.

Today I decided to try out something different. While casually going through my bookshelf, I remembered checking out these cute little mini books at a bookstore a while ago. I instantly decided to incorporate them in today's card as it's something that everyone loves!


I recycled old wedding cards for all of the books and the background as well. The background is made with strips of vintage book paper. I distressed the edges with my vintage photo distress ink and archival jet black in and added a few splatters of white and black colors. The sentiment is from the wrapping paper of a bookstore! 

I took the entire day to make this card but I really loved the outcome and it's a perfect greeting for my dad on fathers day as he loves reading!

Even though I'm not a novel fanatic, I really love the covers, especially of the classics!

My favorite miniature is The Alchemist, what about you?

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

Hello everyone!

There are a lot of summer project challenges going on right now so I decided to start making summer cards even though it is the monsoon season here in India! Whenever I think of Summer, I always remember having Lemonade (Nimbu soda) to quench my thirst as summers in India can get really harsh at times.


I got inspired by a lovely orange slices background pin on Pinterest. Once I drew the lemons on a piece of watercolor paper by Anupam stores, I colored them with my Itsy Bitsy professional watercolors. 

For the background, I used my watercolor pencil in the shade green to get that rough finish. The sentiment is the transparent letter stickers by American Crafts. I had to finish off the card with my white 3D Pearl drops again.

Clean & Layered Bright Colors Card

Hello there!

Today I am back with a Clean and Layered card inspired by the current challenge at The Card Concept and the sketch at Hero Art's Challenge.

I recently purchased the professional watercolors set by Itsy Bitsy and decided to use it for the card.

I colored the background panels with colors black and sky blue. The rectangle is colored with dark blue. Then I distressed the edges to give it a nice edge with my distress inks. 


Next, I doodled the butterfly and colored it with pink, orange, brown, and crimson. The sentiment is from an old magazine and I finished the card with a few black 3D Drops again by Itsy Bitsy.

Bright Florals Mixed Media Card

Hello everyone!

Today I decided to upcycle an old card and book cover to create this Mixed Media bright-colored card inspired by the colors and pattern at The Card Concept's latest challenge. 



The background is made with 3-4 different shades of blue and purple acrylic paints. The flowers and leaves are hand-drawn and painted with acrylic paints. All the acrylic paints that I use are from Camlin as they're high quality, affordable and easily available in my city.



I doodled with a black marker, added some shadows with sketch pens, and 3D Pearl Drops by Little Birdie Crafts for the flower center. Finished off the card with a few blue sequins and white splatters.

A Yo-Yo card

Hey everyone,

The 90's kids played with a lot of cool toys and yo-yo's were one of them. A yo-yo is a toy consisting of an axle connected to two disks, and a string looped around the axle, similar to a spool. It is played by holding the free end of the string known as the handle, allowing gravity to spin the yo-yo and unwind the string. When I saw the current challenge at the butterfly challenge, I was pumped up to make this card. The colors are inspired by mood board at Altenew. Stamps used are Peony Scrolls and the sentiment is by Wplus9. Stencil is Mini Punchinela by The Crafters Workshop. Added a butterfly sequin the yo-yo end.
