Hey its Friday, my favorite day of the week and I have decided I will do the Q&A section every Friday because thats the day I am happy and relaxed and at ease and answering questions is easy..LOL

Today’s card is one of those it-didn’t-turn-out-the-way-I-had-planned cards. I am sure, once in a while we all make such cards 🙂
I am playing along the Skipping Stone Sketch Challenge#88 (It’s Teri Anderson’s sketch and I love her style :)) and wanted to combine it with PTI Make it Monday technique – custon copic stip ribbon.

 Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: PTI(Friends ’till the end); ink: Momento(Tuxedo Black), Jenni Bowlin(Cough Syrup);embellishment: American Crafts(ribbon)

Clearly, pink is not my color 🙂 Because I really struggled with this card. I thought the pink was too bright and wanted to balance it with something neutral. But I love the stitching and the ribbon treatment on this card (at least there’s something to be proud of here :))


And if you have any questions, leave me a comment here.

Q&A


Q1  Can you give a few tips on stamping and are the flowers stamped in THIS card?        -Anita
A1  Sure I can give you a few tips or maybe more 🙂 I will probably do a separate post for it. And yes the flowers on the card in question are stamped and clear embossed and worked with inks on top.
Q2  Have you stamped the image twice on THIS card?              – Snehal
A2  Yes, the image has been stamped twice once with a light color and then a dark color. It kind of goes well with the whole grungy feel on the card (I think :)).
Q3 Is it hand-stitching on THIS card?                                       – Priyadarshini

A3 This card is completely hand-stitched and it actually took me quite a lot of time 🙂

Q4 Doilies stamp from Maya Road don’t stamp well?               – Tejal, Khushboo

A3 You know what, even the Geometric Pattern stamp didn’t work for me in the beginning. I tried it a lot of times before actually getting it right. Please try using a good ink(for me Geometric Pattern gives best result with pigment ink) and try not to apply too much pressure while stamping. These stamps are delicately designed and too much pressure makes them blotchy. I hope this helps.

Hope you like it! Thanks for visiting!
