Love at first sight

Happy Monday everyone!

Sharing a simple card which I made a few days back.
It looks like a one layer, but the front panel is added to the base.

I started with stamping the sheep, and then masked the panel as well as the sheep and did the sponging,stamping and splatters to create the bokeh BG.
I then used a mandala  stencil from  CrafTangles to dry emboss the white space.
Stamped the sentiment and added a sticker heart to finish off.

Uniko January Blog hop

Hello friends, this is a non release month at Uniko, and as usual we are having a blog hop with a previous;y released product.
This time the DT members are choosing their favorite product from the 2018 releases, so you will see different products showcased along the hop.
 My favorite has to be the Pure floral Peony, you all might already know that I am bit biased towards florals, so this is not a surprise to me.


I have 2 cards using this set.
The first one I stamped in versafine Onyx black ink and used alcohol markers to color.
The sentiment is stamped in green and also from the same set.
Nothing is added, as it looks good as it is to my eyes.

CAS on Friday


I heat embossed the stamp with WOW gold pearl embossing powder, and used alcohol markers to color.
I had fussy cut the flowers partially from the top and leaving the bottom intact. I used foam adhesive to add the panel to the white base.
The sentiment is stamped in 2 different inks.

Snowflake - stamped, embossed, diecut

Hey all, I am up with a simple card.
I was inspired by a couple of challenges for this one.

I stamped the snowflakes in pastel shades using versafine pigment inks. I used Uniko's snowflake stencil to dry emboss the panel. Then I die cut the snowflake and the inlaid die cut with the silver snowflake from Sizzix. The sentiments are from Uniko. That's all, pretty clean despite the embossed Bg.

Uniko DT inspiration - Peony love

I am up on Uniko with my inspiration using the recently released Pure Floral - Peony.
I got these stamps much later than the release, so thought of sharing it with more inspiration for you guys.
I am hooked with coloring for past 2 years, and I am still very much enjoying it, its pretty therapeutic.

Today I have 2 cards, One with plain colored image and white BG and the other with colored image and a colored BG.

The first one is stamped and water colored using the distress inks.
I have let the image be the star here, didn't feel like adding anything else here. I had stamped the sentiment on the image.

If you follow my instagram @rahmat.ccc, you would have seen how I am experimenting with backgrounds nowadays. So I did one for the peony as well.
I stamped the image in Versafine ink and used a pink alcohol marker to color it, adding some shading as well.
Then I masked the image and did some inking and stenciling, followed by white pigment ink stamping for the Bokeh effect. After going back and forth I decided to add the sentiment onto the image, and I like how it looks. I added the front panel with foam adhesive.

Its a beauty whether colored or left uncolored.

Winter sunset

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I made this card yesterday night, the idea was sitting in my head for a few weeks, but I seldom step in my craft room nowadays, so it has taken me quite a few weeks to execute the idea.

It is almost a one layer card, but for the sentiment strip.
I cut out a circle on a masking paper, and used the negative, in order to sponge the sun. I have used 3 shades of distress inks for the sun.
I used an outlined tree from my custom made stamps collection, and stamped on the sun. I decided to keep it outlines to give a look of "covered in snow".
The sentiment is from STAMPlorations., I edged the strip with a glitter paper. Keeping it as clean as possible.

Lionking this with:
My interpretation is of a frozen sunset, with a snow covered tree. I hope I am making sense😜

This sketch has compelled me to execute my card idea, which was sitting in my head for weeks.

CrafTangles January Challenge

Hey all, CrafTangles is launching challenge, and the first one to go is Anything Goes.
Visit hndmd blog to read more about the challenge.


I have used the glimmer paste as my focus today.
For the first card, I used a colored card stock from Craftangles, and the flower power stencil with the denim blue and Amethyst glimmer paste.
I added the front to a matching base and finished off with a diecut and stamped seenitment.

Anything goes Feminine

I used a brown card stock with a negative die cut here, and used the orange peel and berry fizz glimmer paste on the doodle around stencil
Finished off with a matching yellow base here.

Linking this Simon Wednesday Challenge with new glimmer pastes.

I used the copper and black diamond glimmer paste on tribal basics stencil, then I used a rectangle die cut, I inked the middle with black soot DI and aligned the frame around it. Finished off with a die cut sentiment.

Hope to see you there.

Hand drawn Plumerias

Hey friends, I have converted another colored image from November today.
I drew these flowers and leaves, inspired by the plumerias which are right under my apartment window.
I drew with a pencil and then used fine tip markers to give the outline.

I then used the alcohol markers to color the flower and the leaves

I sat down today to finish the card. I had partially cut the flowers and the leaves, I stamped the sentiment onto the image.
I embossed the base card with Uniko stencil Quilted and also added a New Washi tape from Pinkfresh at the bottom. Then used foam adhesive to add the floral panel. A few jewels to finish off.
