Card for a baby girl

I made this card especially for itsy bitsy's precious baby challenge. Babies are the most wonderful thing in this world. I love babies especially baby girl. So decided to make this one for a girl baby with pink and white color which is the favorite color of girls.

Luckily I had a patterned paper with girl baby theme with me. Wanted to incorporate footstep concept ( dad's , mom's and little one's) in my card but I did not have any die cuts or punches for that. So I had drawn and cut those with the help of scissors. Again it looked so plain so heat embossed it with pink embossing powder. And the sentiment was also handwritten. And finally for decoration purpose I added some roses, pearls,ribbon and swirls.

Materials used
1. White , pink cardtock
2. Patterned paper from itsy bitsy
3. Embossing folder
4. Hydrangea die for roses from itsy bitsy
5. Sizzlits swirly die

Surprise pop up card

I love to create interactive cards with various techniques. I wanted to try a pop up card so I started searching some easy tutorials and got one HERE.

The reason why I like to make interactive card is,you don't need any special dies, decorative punches or embellishments. With card stock,scissors or craft knife you can create a wonderful card and surprise your friends.

Recently I bought a medallion four die and wanted to use it somewhere in my card. You can see it in the left side of the card. And the triangles in the right side are scrap from some other project. The flowers in top left corners are handmade without any punches or dies whereas the flowers in the bottom right corner are made with Itsy bitsy hydrangea die. Used inked torn paper at the bottom. And finally my favorite Gorjuss doll stamp.

Clay Miniature Cake

Tried my hands on baking sorry making a cake with clay after my successful miniature clay food post . I got a huge positive response for that!!! This is a super easy cute cake to be made!!!!

 All you need is
1. Clay
2. Rolling pin
3. Oil colors of your choice

How I made

1. Prepared two balls of clay, one in white and one in pink
2. Rolled out the clay flat and thick
3. Using circle cutter, I had cut two white and two pink clay pieces
4. Then arranged it alternatively
5. Again rolled out the white clay little bit thin and covered the whole cake with it.
Then using a sharp knife cut a piece to show the different layers of cake and decorated it with little roses.

Used sharp pointed tool to create impressions on the sides of the cake. Creating option here is endless. Change the color, shape and decorations to make more attractive cakes.
