Summer beach vibes!

 Hello to all!

Happy Tuesday!

How about spending some time on the beach in summer? 

Everyone loves the beach, right? When we're not at the beach we're thinking about the beach! At the beach life is different. Time doesn't move from hour to hour. We live by the currents, plan by the tides and follow the sun.

My project is a win category here at Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/CgttRktBpWP/


I played with some alcohol inks on the postage rectangle die panel.


Added some copper gilding flakes for more textures and interest.


Die cut a pair of flip-flops out of a tropical flowers transfer sheet and stamped some palm trees with sun and flying birds. Added that panel to the card base with a foiled sentiment.


I hope you all like my project! 
Have a great time wherever you are
and enjoy moments of carefree and joy!
Happy crafting!

Summer scene!

Hello to all!

Happy Monday!

I needed a masculine birthday card and the theme of the challenge is to follow the fabulous sketch. I went for the summer scene using D.R.S.designs, the sponsor of the challenge!



I started by cutting out all the die-elements.  I stamped the beautiful crane scene image in black archival ink and watercolored the whole scene.


Embossed another die-cut panel by inking the cloud EF, love the pretty details.


Die-cut a circle panel out of the watercolored scene for more interest and matted all the layers on turquoise panels and finally on the main panel.
Die-cut the word celebrate 2 times and added it to the panel.
Added some white dots using a gel pen to the cranes.

Love the end result with all dimensions. I wish you a good end of the day!

Happy crafting!

Summer blooms!

Hello friends!

Happy Monday!

Today I have a card using the Itsy Bitsy stamp set called- Rosy garden. I absolutely love this beautiful set and stamp multi-layered blooms. I used Misti for this project, it made layered stamping easy to line up everything!

I used Altenew inks to create this card. Such incredibly realistic results!


Fussy cut all the blooms and leaves.  

I made my slimline card base out of white CS and created a scalloped window to frame the florals. Die-cut some double-stitched circle frames and added a pattern paper layer. I used foam tape for dimension and interest.


Arranged all the blooms and leaves with some dimensions. Added a sentiment.



Finished it off with some water droplets! Really pretty and graphic but still romantic!
Hope you enjoyed it!
Happy crafting!
