I Pick You

Friday, 15 September 2017

Hey friends!

How are you all doing? I'm sharing a cute and simple card today using My Favourite Things Stamp Set- Harvest Mouse.

To start with, I stamped the mouse and the leaves from the MFT set on Iris sg card stock. After colouring the images with Zig Clean color brush pens, I fussy cut the images and moved on to making the card base. Over a piece of standard A2 sized folded card base, I stamped a few pumpkin images from the same stamp set with the help of masking. Then I decided to make a little greenish area for the mouse to walk on and for my little scene to look complete. When I was happy with the arrangement, I mounted the mouse image using double sided foam tape and adhered the leaves here and there using white glue. Finally stamped the sentiment to go with the mood of the card scene. 
All the colouring is done using Zigs. and I added colours keeping Fall colours in mind. That's why you see some reds, yellows and browns too. 

So what do you think?  Would you pick him? :)

Zig Zag fold Card with Sizzix flowers

Friday, 18 August 2017

I feel so good to be able to find time for blogging again. I realised that the reason why I kept pushing away blogging was my sluggish laptop I've been using since past five years. Actually, it was a netbook (a smaller version of laptop) with 1 GB RAM. Poor thing couldn't take too much of heavy pictures and files. Of late, editing a simple photo became a 1 hour task !! I simply couldn't afford 2-3 hours of writing one blogpost and uploading it and hence blogging took a backseat. My husband suggested me a few times to get a new laptop, but I kept procrastinating it, until I couldn't take it any more! Now I got a new laptop and I wish I had bought it before, it would have saved me so much time and frustration ;)
Hoping to visit your blogs more regularly now.

Enough of ranting. :P
 I wish to share a Zig Zag-fold card I made a few days ago featuring Sizzix Framelits Folk flower stamp and die set.

That script background was stamped (Impression Obsession -French Script background stamp) using versamark ink and clear embossed to give a subtle look to the background.
I had received a couple of stamp and coordinating die sets in my Sizzix kit last month. This one's called Folk flower and it is a beautifully detailed stamp. The pack contains a coordinated floral die that gives a perfectly clean edge with a margin of 1mm around the stamp. It contains a leaf die as well.
The florals were coloured using Zig clean color brush pens.

Looks quite dramatic !Would love to know your views about this card.
