Spring is here!

Hello Friends!
It's new Month and new challenges. But I still have some backlog from previous month. My habit of procrastinating makes me miss some challenges :(
So today I have to post this card before I miss another deadline.

This card is made using lawn fawn stamp set - bicycle built for you. It's so adorable. I got it as a birthday gift from my dear friend Sindhu. It's been 3 months since I got it and I hadn't used it. The current challenge @ Lawn Fawnatics was perfect for it.
So submitting it to Lawn Fawnatics Challenge - Challenge 5 - Spring Inspiration board
After I colored the bicycle, I needed the tree. I remembered the Video by Dawn from WPlus9 where she had demonstrated painting trees using the stamp set- Coming up roses. I had bought this stamp set more than 2 years ago but didn't quite succeed at creating good trees. I was about to destash this stamp set when I thought of giving it a try again and I really loved the outcome this time.

I used zig markers for coloring. The clouds are made using a handmade template and distress inks.

Hope you liked this card as much as I did.

Love,
Piyu

A Birthday card


Hey friends!
Another card made using Honey bee stamp set -Zen florals. I wanted to try prismacolors on black card stock and this stampset seemed perfect.

I stamped the floral border in white twice - upside and downside and then heat embossed in white.
I loved the bright impression of  prismacolor pencils on black card stock. Now it's time to try it out on kraft and grey!

Hope you liked this simple Birthday card.
Love,
Piyu

Have a beautiful day again!

Hey Friends!
Yes..my third post in a row but not the last one.



This card is again made using my favorite sentiment - "Have a beautiful day!" from Hero Arts - "You are so Lovely" stamp set. And this is also made for  A blog named hero  challenge which has a "Watercolors" theme and this month they are collaborating with Honeybee stamps.
For this card I have used Honey bee stamp set- Zen florals. I love the tiny flowers and leaves in this set. And this is such a versatile stamp set. I have made 5cards this month using this stamp set and you will see them in my subsequent posts.
I had shared this card on my Instagram account - https://www.instagram.com/piyu27/ and it got featured on honey bee stamps. I am so so happy :)
Hope you liked it too!

Love,

Have a Beautiful day!

Hello Peeps!
I am in love with this sentiment  - "Have a beautiful day!" from Hero Arts - "You are so Lovely" stamp set and you will find me using this a lot.
Today's card is made for the  A blog named hero  challenge which has a "Watercolors" theme and this month they are collaborating with Honeybee stamps.



I have used the Hero arts background stamp - Large flower background. I had bought this stamp since long but hadn't used it and this was a great opportunity to put it to use.
I used zig markers to color them and liked the vibrant colors. A used a white gel pen to add interest.

Will be back soon. I need to finish off posting so many cards made this month! Phew!!!!

Love,
Piyu
