You are Super Awesome

Hello to all!

Today I was in pink and Flowers kind of mood and really enjoyed putting this card together despite it being crazy!
For this card, I have used the new stamp set called Mogra Layers. It is just awesome with cute clusters of flowers and designed with lots of open space with solid layers to use for stamping too!



And I stretched my tiny stamps from other stamp sets by mixing to make my flower cluster!


I started by stamping the sentiment in Jet black ink before arranging the images. 
After I stamped the flowers and leaves in the layers that are suggested, I also added a few extra leaves and flowers around the clusters in grey and black ink too.



I also splattered around them with a small amount of grey and black chalk paint ink mixed with water.
All the things I love about it! Finished it off with few clear sequins!

Supply List

Cardstock: Bielo White CS
Stamps: Mogra Layers, Super Girl and Fairy Tale Wishes stamp sets from Mudra
Altenew Inks: Cotton candy, frosty pink, velvet, grapevine, crimson
Distress ink: hickory smoke
Archival ink: Jet black

Under the sea card

Hello friends!

Time for another DT post for Cut it Up challenge! The theme is under the sea, so easy peasy!

I thought it was a good opportunity to play with a new technique for me to create an underwater background with bubbles effect and perfect to beat the heat of this summer!


I started with a white glossy CS. In a plastic glass, I added some liquid detergent and some blue tone spray colors. Using a straw created some bubbles and quickly covered up the glossy panel with bubble print as shown in the pic till satisfied with the results I achieved.


Next, I turned my attention to underwater elements to add to the card. I stamped all those tiny elements a few times, colored and fussy cut them.



Love the cute mermaid image, she is coloured with Polychromos pencil and this is my first attempt to play with these pencils. Added some clear crystal powder for more details to mermaid image.



 I stretched my stamp by stamping some bubbles from the same stamp set by masking seahorse image.



The ocean waves fussy cut background panel was created two times by stencilling on vellum and a white cardstock using distress inks and detailing with zig marker. Added some sparkles to the waves to add the reflection and more interest.
I wanted to frame my panel so I added a scalloped border die in white. Added the sentiment.
In the end, the mermaid and all the elements are lifted by using foam tape. I also added a few bubbles, sequins at the low bottom of the oceans in form of some treasure.

I really enjoyed getting messy making the different underwater background panels on this card with new experiments and stretching my stamps!

Supply list
Cardstock: White Glossy CS
Vellum sheet
Stamp: Mermaid from Mudra
Stencil: Doodle cluster from Mudra
Die: Inverted Scallop Rectangle frames from DCAM

Happy Birthday!

Hello everyone!
Happy Friday!

I have a soft and pretty card today!
I love this cute little fairy who can complete anyone Birthday Wishes by her Magic wand spreading sparkles and happiness in our lives!!!


First of all, I created a valley of flowers by stretching my tiny stamp elements on a stitched die cut panel. Using my Misti, I stamped the solid flower image and then tiny leaf two times and created the pattern. Then using the magic stick stamp I created the flower centre, isn't it looking awesome.


Now stamp the sweet fairy image on a watercolor sheet and colored her with my Polychromos pencils first time. Fussy cut the image, added crystal drops to sparkle her wings and magic wand. Highlighted her hair using a white pen.


On a die cut label in black heat embossed the sentiment in white. Then lightly applied the distress inks using finger dauber and created a sky scene too as shown in the pic.



Once I was happy with the blending, I added my fairy with dimensions on a stamped label with leafy circle chippie. Finished off the card by scattering some flower beads and sequins from the sky by her magic wand!

Some close-ups:




I love how it looks like a real fairy sending some sparkles from the sky and sitting on a leafy circle representing the sun! Looks like a Dream!!!!

Pocket filled with crayon colors

Hello to all!
Happy Monday!

The best period of life is childhood particularly the school days and I will never forget them! Especially, the memories related to art and craft. Be it sticking my hands with glue and then peeling it off or filling my school shirt pocket with colours and mess up my dress.

I am CASEing her pretty card below and you can see more of her favorites at the above link given: Love the textures she created on her bold phrase die with artistic text sentiment and paired it with a beautiful cup filled with brushes and color only at the tip of brushes.

I die cut a white panel using Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangles. Stamped a pocket and die cut it.  Stamped some crayon images once again. Fussy cut those colored crayons and added at the tips and centre of the crayons. Filled the pocket with crayon colors and added the text sentiment.
Now adhered that pocket and create phrase using foam adhesive tape, Voila done!


Hoping I did justice CASEing her pretty CAS artistic beauty!
