Hi All,

Today I'd like to share a few cards I made with some new goodies I got from Simon Says Stamp's latest Stamptember release.

Let me start with the pictures of what I made.
Card 1

For this card, I heat embossed the Abstract Triangles background stamp and watercoloured it using distress inks (all colours listed below).
I then die cut the big you and co-ordinated it with a sentiment from the matching set.

Here's what I used (hyperlinked)

Brustro watercolour paper - 300 GSM
Ranger white embossing powder  
Ranger Heat It tool
Abstract Triangles BG stamp
Big You die
You matter stamp set
Distrss Inks: Chipped Sapphire, Picked Raspberry, carved pumpkin, mowed lawn, festive berries, wilted violet and seedless preserves.

Card 2

For this card, I heat embossed the Sketched Ranculus set from Simon Says Stamp on watercolour card stock and coloured using different distress inks.
All it needed after colouring was a sentiment, which is from Altenew's Label Love set. All products and sources from where you can buy the products are listed below

There are some more cards I made recently. I shall post them all in a separate post.

Until next time.

Hi Everyone,

The last few weeks were a frenzy of work travels, missing mojo and stuff.
When I heard about the amazing drive run by the Indian crafting community to send some handmade cards to soldiers serving at the border, I found the perfect opportunity to make some quick cards.
We made Diwali cards to send to the soldiers and blank ones for them to send to their family. We also made cards to thank them. Read all about the drive here.

Now, I don't own any Diwali stamps but, since I needed to make these in bundles, I had to find a stamp that I could use, fast and quick. And voila. I found some stamps in my stash. 

For the Diwali cards, I used the(not used more than twice) Heena Elements stamp set from Altenew. Plan, stamp, repeat and BAM. I made 6 cards in under an hour.

Here is a pic:

I water coloured the flowers using some kuretake gansai tambi paints.
The sentiment was custom made using the Sophisticated Script Bundle from Concord and 9th. This set is a must buy!

All card stock was procured from Letz craft.

I made 6 more cards using the other big flower from the set.
Thanks for reading.
