Anniversary Card!

Hearts are always in season for the loved ones! I made this card using Market Street Stamps background stamps. I love them :-) I cut the heart on pazzles. This is the first time I cut vellum on pazzles and it wasn't that tough. Just played with the pressure and got it right. I first stamped bit of burlap with black ink on the heart. Then layered the hearts stamp on top of it. I heat embossed it with gold. It was my first time heat embossing and it was so much fun! Loved it. I got myself a ranger heat it tool. I love how it turned out. I red,black and gold together. More so..Sid loved it:-)

Canvas Collage!

So I have been thinking of getting some Mod Podge for a long time. I finally got the matte mod podge last weekend. I have always liked quilting pattern and I am obsessed with birds right now! :-)
The size of the canvas is 14X14. I cut 2 by 6 inch strips of paper. I used sunshine lollipop collection(Wee Bundle) by Sassafras Lass. I love this collection! Beautiful colors and patterns. I painted the canvas edge using some acrylic paints. I did some random brush strokes trying to capture some of the colors from the collection. I mod podged the paper onto the canvas, arranging the paper so it's pleasing to the eye.
I cut out the birds sitting on branches using pazzles on brown cardstock. Mod Podged that onto canvas and gave three coats of Mod Podge to finish it. I love the result! I think it will make a nice gift. It was quick and simple to make. I love how the mod podge looks like brush strokes once dry. Well, I hope you like it!

Cards Galore!

I spent about 3 hours today making some cards. I am running late on November Birthdays. I made 10 cards to cover both November and December. I love dry embossing and inking! Very simple cards..I used cuttlebug embossing folders in the big shot, inked them and added AC premium solid ribbons to finish them! I love the white one on the pink-purple background. It is simple and elegant. I had a lot of fun!

I used Echo Park's Black PP with White dots for this layout. I tinted it using Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap Ink. I wanted to give it a oldish look. I tinted the picture too. The title was cut on pazzles inspiration. I used glossy accent on it to make it pop! The frame was cut on pazzles as well. I used I rock to set the gems. It was first time using the I Rock tool and it was fun!

I love this picture:-)Anurag was maybe about 2 months when we took this picture...The poem is by Edgar Guest. It is a beautiful one!

I hope you like this one! This is based on a sketch by Savvy Sketches.

My little Rockstar!

I am going crazy with EP Dots & Stripes paper! Love it! Love how the twine goes with it.I cut out the stars on pazzles inspiration. I cut out my title word "Rockstar" on pazzles as well and then used my White Uniball pen to outline it. I used the pen on some of the stars too. This layout is also based on Allison Davis Sletch. I love her books!

Anurag at six months old was an expert at blowing raspberry kisses, was extremely ticklish and loved playing peek-a-boo! He loved it when we read books to him. I still have a lot of pictures to catch up on.

Silly Smile using Dots n Stripes!

I really wanted to participate in the Echo Park Dots n Stripes Contest. So off I sent my hubs to pick up the metropolitan collection at Archivers since I was feeling a bit under the weather! He is very sweet and did it with no cribs:)He even picked up the Splash collection as a bonus:) I thought the cut off was today (just saw the reply on facebook on EP Wall) and have been working on this layout the last couple of hours. I hope it looks good....My brain is not at its best! But there is only a little chance you can go wrong with EP paper, cause "everything goes with everything" ,my favorite phrase(see this is how you can justify buying things ;) )! They just make it easy:).You can even mix collections easily. So here goes.....
