Dress Card – NO STAMPS!

I was inspired by this dress card on SCS. I wanted to try the same design as well as a different one that came to my mind, primarily because this is the kind of dress I used to my friend’s daughter in and she would look soooo cute! So I thought the card would be too and it does, not as cute as her though :). I was finally able to use a ribbon that I’d kept from a packaging – that’s the one at the waist. It was double the width that I needed, so I simply folded it :).

…I was able to make a masculine card to my satisfaction. I hope it does look masculine to others too :). It also fits in with the Something yellow, blue and green challenge at Stamp Something.

I created the background paper using some ol’ forgotten foam stamps that I had and which I thought I would never be able to use :). Can you believe it – this is the first time I’ve used Versamark?!?! I’ve been stamping for over a year now and had never used Versamark ?!?! Which world was I in :-?. Then I created the sentiment using another set which I didn’t have any hopes of being money-well-spent; it does have a weird “r”, almost looks like a “z”.


  • Stamps: SU! Angler, CTMH amore lowercase, Summer cuties
  • Paper: DCWV
  • Prismacolor pencils, OMS, brads, clear EP, heat gun, versamark

Ismaki Challenge

The moment I saw this week’s sketch at Ismaki, I knew I wanted to make a card on the sletch – it is so beautiful and different! Totally fell in love with it.

The sketch:

DSC01872I liked the way it came out and did you see what I did with the leaves of the palm trees?!?!? Instead of popping the leaves exactly on the image, I interleaved it to give a richer foliage.

  • Paper: DCWV and Bazzill
  • VersaColor Orange ink, prismacolor pencils, OMS, Stickles stardust, Nestabilities, Crochet thread, crop-a-dile

Butterfly stamp sets

Yeah I know I haven’t posted a creation in a long time and in this post too there won’t be one. For one I haven’t been making too many things, I did make 4 cards in last 2 weeks but couldn’t take a photo of them as all of them had to be posted in a haste. Hopefully I should get back in full swing soon.

Lately I’ve been so fascinated with butterfly stamps that I decided to hunt one for myself; but there is such a mind-boggling variety that I haven’t been able to make up my mind. Since I’d spent so much time and energy looking around that I thought I should post my findings to enable those who have a similar dilemma :)
