Simple Birthday card

Hi Crafties

Today I am gonna show you a quick stamped card I made for my sis.

I used Penny Black Pansy Bouquet stamp , masked it and stamped over with a script stamp.

Added the clear drops for some effect.

MDF love Part-2

Hey Peeps

Here is another MDF i decoupaged. A cutlery holder which can also be used as a remote organizer. 

Kept it simple as I felt this is gonna be used everyday. Too many embellishments will sure make it uncomfortable to use. 

Please leave your comments and suggestions so i can grow.

MDF love part 1

Hey friends

I am used to fall in love with some types of crafts and make a lot of them till I get enough of it. My past craziness were Metals & Cabochons , Resin , Stamping and Metal bookmarks.

This time I think it is MDF. Last week all I did was Base coating, painting and decoupaging n the craft space was all colorful.

Here are a set of Pen stands i made for my cutie pies.

Used Decoupage papers from Bob n Betty.

And the kids loved it and i am happy. Hope you all like it too.
