Shop Your Scraps - Striped Backgrounds

Hello Everyone!!!

Last week while organizing my card-stock and patterned papers, I realized that over the past few years I have accumulated a lot of paper scraps. I have always thought about throwing them away, but I can't come to do that. So I have decided to make cards just using those scraps.

While I was at it, I felt that it would be a good idea to share the process of creating those card ideas with you, thus I will be showcasing a new card idea using just scraps on my blog every month. How is that???

So let see this month's cards.









Technique: The technique is really very simple. I have created a short video to explain the process. I hope that helps.



I am submitting these cards to :

I hope you all liked it. I would love to hear back from you all. Thank you very much for taking your time to notice it. Hope to hear again from all of  u soon. Till then take care. :)

PS: If my posts inspire you to create something on similar lines, I feel highly flattered. But please, do respect the effort I take in conceptualizing and executing, please give a direct link to my work when you are inspired by mine. Thanks for understanding :-)

Technique of the Month - Textured colored backgrounds



Hello Everyone! Welcome to my blog!
I am back with "Technique of the Month" for June 2017.  I missed a couple of months but I am back on track now. This month's technique is "Textured colored backgrounds".

I am a huge fan of adding any kind of texture to my cards. It could either be on the background using embossing folders, embossing paste or it could be using embellishments. I can never make just plain and simple one layered cards. 

So before we dive into the technique, let's have a look at today's card first, shall we...







Close-up of the texture


Technique: The technique is really very simple. I have created a short video to explain the process. I hope that helps.





So here is a small description how I created this card:
  • Die-cut 2 circles from the background panel created using We R Memory Keepers - Nesting circle dies
  • On an A2 car base, adhered the smaller circle die-cut using glue.
  • Then adhered the larger circle die-cut to the card base using foam tape
  • Stamped the happy birthday sentiment from the Concord & 9th Happy Day set using Versamark ink and heat embossed using Ranger embossing powder.
  • Cut out an additional 1/4" strip from the background panel and attached it to one side of the card base using glue.
  • Attached a few embellishments around the sentiment to finish the card. 
  • I also stamped a few coordinating sentiments inside the card (can be seen in video).
  • Finally sponged the envelope flap to match the colors on the card using Memento dye inks.

I am submitting this card to :


 I hope you all liked it. I would love to hear back from you all. Thank you very much for taking your time to notice it. Hope to hear again from all of  u soon. Till then take care. :)

So today I am here with a bright and colorful summer themed card for all of you. Lets have a look at the card first.
