World of the ocean

 Good evening dear friends

This is my card for the Double D Challenge  creatures in/under the sea

I decided that I want to do a one layer card. I stamped and fussy cut the fish and a crab and coloured using the Inktense color pencils given by my loving friend Darlene Pavlick. Thank You Darlene. Then I created the background of the sea using blue color ink and a finger dauber. I am just learning ink blending and so decided to keep it simple . I also colored the sky using a little blue ink. I adhered three layers of the fish and the crab to give dimension. I learnt it from Jennifer Mcguire.The fish crab and the blue color was my inspiration from the moodboard. I stamped the sentiment Make A splash and adhered three layers to give it dimension. I adhered the fish,the crab and the sentiment strip using liquid glue. 

Viola my card was done.

 Good Evening Friends

This is my card for the Can You Handle the Pressure Challenge

I embossed an unbranded embossing folder with flowers and butterflies onto a orange color card. To me flowers butterflies and the card stock was all summer. In Sri Lanka we enjoy summer all year around. I embossed it using my Cuttlebug machine which I love so much. I heat embossed the sentiment sending you Sunny Smiles onto a piece of black cardstock using clear embossing powder and my card was done..

Happy Birthday

Good afternoon ladies

 Can you imagine that this is the first post for the year. I never knew that six months have already gone. I was involved in arranging my craft space and my job and other stuff kept me busy. Although I made some cards I forgot to take pictures before giving them over. Sorry about it.


I made two cards 

One for my darling grand daughter Rashida and one for my Son in law Ciaran who is a darling son to me.They are both celebrating their birthdays on first and fourth of August. I made them early as I had to post them to ensure that they get on time. 

The card I made for my grand daughter is a little pop up card . I pasted a birthday themed pattern paper to which I adhered the the front  of the card. It is a die cut of an unicorn She loves unicorns.  To create dimension I pasted two unicorns together and slightly colored them using a pink color marker from AlteNew. I pasted birdies cut from a die.Hope you like my card.



The back of the card.

The card I made for my son in law too I pasted a birthday themed pattern paper to which i die cut the word happy five times in different colors and pasted using liquid glue. I pasted the word Birthday too using liquid glue. I didn't add any bling to the two cards as I thought that the happy birthday themed pattern papers were sufficient. 

I used a little bit of the pattern paper to decorate the inside of the card for my son. For my darling grand daughters card  I cut the words happy Birthday from the same pattern paper and adhered to the back of the card as well as one item from the pattern paper to the envelope as well to ensure the coordination.

The dies I used are from

Happy Birthday from Memory Box

Whittle Birds from Memory Box 

These two dies were a gift from my darling friend Darlene Pavlick. Thank You Darlene

Unicorn from Tutti Designs

Happy Christmas

Good afternoon Friends

 This is a christmas themed pop up box card which will be mailed to my Grand daughter, Daughter and husband. I selected this type as my grand daughter loves this type of cards. I made the matching envelope too using my newly acquired 123 Punch Board which I love.

Cat Lovers Hop

Dear Friends

Good afternoon Ladies.

This is my card for the Cat Hop 2021. 

I had a rubber stamp with the words Meow and I stamped it an angle to fill in the piece of white cardstock. Then I took a circle of peach colored cardstock in which i stamped the cat and the ball of yarn in black and Blue I added four hearts in peach as embelishments. The sentiment You Clever Cat was stamped in black ink. This is my project. The cat, the ball of Yarn and the sentiment is from Art Impressions which I got as a gift from a previous Cat hop. I dont have many cat stamps as i started crafting a few years ago. Also in Sri Lanka there is only few places stamps and they dont have any cat themed stamps.

Home made stencils

 A very good afternoon friends

I had a few stencils and my friend and crafter Ishani gave me some stencils but I did not have the above designed stencils. I took an old Xray sheet and cut it to 4.25 *5.5 and I left a border and cut the middle portion. Then i cut strips and adhered with glue. I didnt do any intricate patterns as i am not a good artist. I am super happy with the stencils and I plan to do a card using these background stencils.

Thanks for stopping by
