Mix it Up Monday Challenge.

Here is my card for Stamptv's 'Mix it Up Monday' Challenge, using Red, Blue and White for any ocassion except patriotic.

The stamps are 'Poppy bottles' from Stampendous, and 'Hello Bubble' from Hero Arts.
Inks are Tuxedo black,Danube blue and Ladybug from Memento and Onyx Black from Versafine.

I coloured the poppy and the bottle with Camel Artists Water Colour Cakes and a 'Aqua Brush' from Stampin'Up. I then cut out the poppy and the bottle and stuck it on with double sided foam tape to give it a 3-D effect.
Self-adhesive pearls are from a local craft store.
I cut the bottom edge of the card with Fiskars craft edge scissors to add some interest.

I love the way it turned out!!

The stamps are from Stampendous 'Birthday Assortment' and 'Bold Sprigs' and from Hero Arts 'Just saying hi' and 'Birthday Messages'.
the lights stamp is a very very old stamp from Rubber Stampede called 'string of lights border'.

A simple and easy canvas bag.

In craft class today we made these fabulously easy canvas bags.
The bags are pre-made by "The Cotton Bag Movement", an amazing NGO which is slowly but surely working towards making  Mumbaikars move from plastic bags to cotton bags.
My kids decorated them by sewing with wool in different colours. Cute aren't they?

Small treats

Here's a quick fun card that I made for a friend for her birthday, using Hero Arts and Sizzix stamp and die-cut  set 'Style is Eternal'.
The sentiment is  a woodblock stamp from "7Gypsies". I just love it! It is so versatile!
the Happy Birthday sentiment is from Hero Arts and I have stamped them all with Versafine Onyx black and Crimson Red inks.
And I used my absolutely favourite tool the 'corner chomper' to round off the corner!
I haven't heard from my friend yet, I hope she liked it!
