Crealies Striped Birthday Card

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are enjoying your Holidays with your Family..

I'm stopping by to share this striped Birthday card using Crealies dies and stamps. Crealies Mix & Match Stripes dies are so fun to create striped background using colored card stock.


To make this card, I took plain Mix & match stripes dies and put it together using tape to make the the die cutting faster. Then I die cut out lots of stripes on the colored card stock as shown in below pic.


After that, I adhered these die cut out colored stripes on Crealies masking sheet one by one. Once satisfied, I die it out using Crealies stitched rectangle and circle dies. 


I realized that the striped background is so bright. So, I toned it down by covering it with thin vellum paper which I die cut using circle dies exactly at the same place as my striped background.  After that, I adhered this panel on white card base using foam tape along with washi tape. 


Then, I die cut out this cute pig and balloons using Crealies dies and adhered at the card panel.


Finally, I stamped the tag using Bits & pieces tag stamp set along with Happy birthday sentiment to complete this card.

I hope you get inspired.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Kinda Cute by Patricia - Happy Birthday

Hello Everyone,

I'm stopping by to share my DT Post for Kinda Cute by Patricia. For this Birthday card I have used this cute digi set called Birthday Friends . I made this Birthday card for my cute Nephew..:)


To make this card, I arranged all the image on adobe photoshop and took the print out which I die cut it out using Stamplorations Crazy double stitched rectangle dies. I colored all the images using Decotime Twin Alcohol Markers.


Then, I ink blended the top edges using 'Mustard Seed' Distress ink. To make the background a bit magical, I created the bokeh effect using Tubby Craft Stencil called Circle Spread using VersaMagic white ink and distress inks.


Then, I adhered this colored panel on Yellow base card and added stamped Birthday Sentiment on white strip using foam tape to complete it. I really fell in love with this fun bokeh background.. I hope you like it too.

Thank You Card - Hedgehog Hollow December Subscription Box

Hello Everyone, 

I’m back at Hedgehog Hollow Blog with my another post using the cute December Subscription box. This month’s box is one of my favorite :).. I’m a big fan of Critters and really enjoying playing with this box. For today's post, I've used cute Floral Hedgehog stamp set to make this Thank You card.


I started with A2 size white card stock and ink blended it using Distress Oxide. For that I have used Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Candid Apple Distress Oxides. Once satisfied with the inking, I stenciled this inked background using the Branches Stencil which came in December with Pebeo Modeling paste and let it air dry.


Meanwhile, I stamped the Floral Hedgehog on white card stock using Color Hive – Clear – Hexagonal Embossing Glue Ink Pad and heat embossed it using Papermania's Gold embossing Powder. I colored it at some places Staedtler Gold metallic marker and fussy cut it.


To assemble my card, I adhered the stenciled card panel on white card base. Then I added the die cut out stitched hill using Crealies on the edge dies . I stamped the sentiment using Animal Greetings stamp set by mixing two sentiments. After that, I adhered Floral Hedgehog using foam tape.


Finally I added some Pale Gold colored Nuvo Drops on the hedgehog and on the branches to give some dimension to complete my Thank you card.



I really enjoyed playing with this wonderful box. I cant wait to see what you create with these cuties. If you have not already bought this box then you can shop your Hedgehog Hollow box here.

Christmas Bauble using InkyStamper Deer Stamp

Merry Christmas Everyone, Wish you all a Happy and Healthy year ahead. 

I'm stopping by to share this Christmas Bauble which is adorning my Christmas Tree this year. This is my first handmade Christmas Bauble which I made using  InkyStamper's stamp set called "Deer". I really had fun making this one. It looks so magical to me :)


To make this, I hand cut out the white thick cardstock of the same size as of my bauble. Then I ink blended it using Purple Distress Oxide. Meanwhile, I stamped and colored the images using alcohol marker.

Then, I added the landscape for tree by tearing white card stock and adhered the same using foam tape. Added the tree using glue. For the deer, I wanted to give some gap between background and the image so for that, I added the deer on the background using clear acetate strip. 

Added some fake snowflakes and silver sequins before gluing clear bauble. Make sure you use strong glue to adhere the bauble on the cardstock. I have used Glossy accent for the same.

I hope you like it. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Love Coupons/Tickets - Crealies

Hello Everyone,

I'm stopping by to share something different which I've made for my hubby as a Christmas Gift though it can be given at any occasion like Birthday or Valentines Day. I chose to give him on Christmas Day because When I asked him what he needs for Christmas then he said "Peace of mind" And  replied ...I can't promise you that for all the 365 days but I can make it for at least some days... he he he And that's how I got this idea of making a Love coupon booklet using wonderful products from Crealies. :)


To start with, I stamped this ticket on white cardstock and fussy cut it. After that, I die cut out these labels using dotted label dies on pastel colored card stock. 


Then, I glued these tickets on the die cut out labels and punch a hole using  hole punch.


For the front and back cover, I've die cut out pattern paper and decorated it by adding die cut out heart. I further added small tag along with hand written sentiment.


I bind these coupons together using a metal ring. Now its time to write some messages on each coupon. I did that based on his likings like no chores for a day, favorite dinner, movie night, uninterrupted afternoon nap and lots of free wishes etc. etc...;)


I hope, with this gift he will at least get some days of peace of mind... he he he 


I hope you get inspired.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!

InkyStamper Bear Stamp - Warm & Cozy Wishes

Hello Everyone,

I'm stopping by to share this Interactive Winter card using  InkyStamper's latest stamp set called "Bear". It was so much fun using InkyStamper "Like to Move it" Dies and "Clear Move-its" to make this Bear interactive. :). Over to my card..


To start with, I took die cut out white card base and ink blended the same using rainbow colored Distress Oxides. Once satisfied with ink blending, I repetitively stamped the pattern of sweater from the same Bear stamp set using Versamark Ink. Then, I heat embossed it using Ranger's White embossing powder and die cut out the circle.

Adhered this rainbow colored panel on white card stock. For the Bear image, I stamped it on white card stock , colored it using alcohol markers and die cut it out using matching dies.

Then I dressed the bear using Paper Piecing technique and for that I have used the same die cut out circle from the previous steps. Now our image is ready. 

For the interactive part where I wanted to move the bear side by side, I have used "Like to Move it" Dies and "Clear Move-its" as shown in below pic.


After that, I adhered the image using foam tape on clear move its... I really fell in love with these clear move its because it made the interactive part so easy and fun as compared the use of a penny ;)..he he he..


To finish the card, I adhered this interactive panel on Yellow card base using foam tape, added the stamped sentiment along with fun winter cap. 

Here I made a GIF to show the interactive part :)


I hope you like it. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Rainbow Gatefold Slimline Card - Crealies

Hello Everyone,

I'm stopping by to share this colorful Gatefold Slimline Birthday card using Crealies newly released On the edge dies and bits and pieces stitched pattern stamp set.


To make this card, I took white card stock and cut it little bigger than the outermost slimline dies. After that I took another white card stock panel which I kept 2 c.m bigger in width and die cut it out from the middle using On the edge dies.


Then, I ink blended one flap using rainbow colored Distress Oxides and stamped the another flap with stitched Bits and pieces stamp set using same colors. Once satisfied, I folded these flaps 1 c.m each on the vertical side and adhered it to the base card which we have die cut it out earlier to make the gatefold.


For the inside, I die cut out another white card stock using Crealies Slimline dies where I further die cut out the balloons and stamped the birthday sentiment repeatedly. I also stamped some gifts using bits & pieces stamp set. I marked the place for balloon in the base card and ink blended  it before adhering inside panel to give the colors to my balloons. I further added die cut out ink blended balloons and drew the thread for balloons using black pen.


To keep this Gatefold card closed, I made a 2 inches wide vellum ring where I added negative  die cut out of Happy sentiment and stamped birthday sentiment to complete this colorful Birthday Card.


I hope you get inspired.
