Fun Postcards

Hello All!!! Today I had a fun and creative day. I have been thinking of creating these for about 2 weeks now. Finally, I could play with my new Hero Arts stamps from the new catalog "Stamp Your Story"!!! These sure are fun artsy stamps. I made collage, mixed media and more so enjoyed to my hearts content and am sooo happy with the result. I have personalized Postcards to send to my friends and family this season

So keeping it short as this sure is a picture heavy post.

On one side I stamped the big post card stamp and on the other side I have various collage designs. I am playing along the challenge at  Hero Arts"Stamp Your Story"
Also Linking to the Simon Says Stamp challenge: Anything Goes








Can't wait to create more with these products. I mixed lots of stamp sets, which I will list soon. Family duty for now :)

The Card Set Challenge

Finally my last post for the day!!! As you know Cath at Moxie Fab World is showcasing the Paper Crafts 350 Gifts and Cards magazine. This magazine is so very special to me as I have my first cover card on it :)


This cute Monster on the cover is by me :) So so happy.
I created this set of cards for the current challenge at the Moxie Fab World: The Card Set Challenge

I created my card using Silhouette Cameo to cut the shapes in various colors, assembled everything together. I used some Hero Arts stamps for the sentiments. For the card set cover, I stamped the image using versamark ink and rubbed some perfect pearl powder, it gives a wonderful subtle pearly effect.






Don't you think this makes a perfect gift for Girl friends....
Have a nice day!!!

Thinking of you!!!

 So here is my 2nd. post for today! Yesterday, I felt quite creative and created a few things. One of them is this card. I was thinking of playing along the CASE study challenge for some time now but it somehow never happened. I had to play along this time as I loooove Maile's work and the card is such an inspiration.

Here is the card as inspiration:
I was inspired by these row of feathers colored partially and also the colors. 
My take:


I stamped this wonderful stamp by MFT  (Peaceful Wildflowers) using white ink and then colored the flowers using the colors of the inspiration card. Love the effect.
Also linking it to the challenge at Simon Says Stamp blog: Anything Goes

The supplies I used are all available at the Scraphouse shop.
 Thanks you for stopping by!!!
