Be merry!

Hello everyone!
Happy Friday!

Today, I have a bright and beautiful Poinsettia card and this is special for me as the stamp set is designed by me :)D

This is my DT post for Cut It Up Challenges and the theme is Holiday Tic tac Toe and I chose Embossing, red and Textures!

No automatic alt text available.

And I am happy to combine my theme with three elements ( i.e. Poinsettias) here:

I wanted my Poinsettia in bright colors, so I masked my blooms three times and added leaves, heat embossed the blooms in red and leaves in green. Then added colors using my Chameleon Tones. For more depth and textures I added some Polychromos pencil shading which really pops the colors through my embossing! Now fussy cut the whole bunch.
Adhered it on my white base panel. I added a thin strip of red foam glitter sheet. Die cut merry sentiment from same glitter sheet in red and embossed the word Be in gold sparkle. To finish it off added some gold wink of Stella to the centre of the Poinsettia blooms to give a bit of dimension!
I love how this card turns out, simply so pretty!

Card #1
Watercolored shaker Reindeer

I colored directly on my Christmas Reindeer blue stencil with Zig Brush Pens.

I used different colors on this image, misting it with water and then pressed it very carefully on my white panel.  I tried to make my color scheme as an analogous colors and misted water helped to keep the colors merge clearly and easily (try to mist water minimal). Added some splatters. And converted it into a shaker with the dry double stitched embossed panel.

Added Be Jolly sentiment.
I just love it!

Card #2
Watercolored Wetstyle  Christmas Reindeer

I started with a scrap piece of watercolored sheet.

 Keep my Reindeer stencil on it and wet (little heavy to spread the color and mix easily) the image carefully using my brush.

Applied my DI with loose watercoloring as shown in the pic.

Remove the stencil and fussy cut the image. Added white color splatters to the image for winter effect.

Die cut a white textured panel and created a watercolored wreath. Added a gold color string with some sequins behind my image and added the sentiment strip. Die cut some leaves and attached a button along with it before adhered this panel to my card base using foam adhesive.

I made this card with the subtle effect! I die cut a crazy double stitched panel in white and dragged my Candied Apple DI cube directly from top to middle. 

Now stamped the couple image and heat embossed it with EP, fussy cut it.

Deer in the snow!

Hello to all!
Happy Wednesday!

I am so happy with my first attempt by masking snow hills and inking and the pine trees are hand painted, a one layer CAS card!

For this card, I masked the hills and moon by tearing the scraps of leftover papers and sponged to create snow hills and a winter sky look. With the hill masks in place, I created my own hand painted trees in shades of black and grey. 
Stamped the sentiment and highlighted with adding some white gel pen. 

A close-up view

 Added a very thin sparkly layer to create snow. Now die cut my silhouette trio of deer in black and created this winter scene with deer.
Love the dimension of hills on this! Isn't it!!!

Stamp: Sentiment is from Christmas Characters stamp set INKADINKADO
Die:  Valley Deer Trio from Memory Box

Here is DT post for DCAM blog, I made using Ready to color Peonies critter sheet!

I colored the Peonies with my Chameleon  Color Tones.

Later, I added the yellow-orange Peonies to set my design.

Then adhered my peonies on a white card base panel, where I added black stripes with a vellum panel in between. Added the bold Wishes chiplet sentiment along with warm wishes from our home.

Celebrate with a coffee cup!

Hello everyone!
Happy Wednesday!

This time I wanted to combine my coffee card to Christmas in Traditional colors!
I used Die set with coordinating stamp set and embossing folder included in it which I won from a challenge hosted by Talented Lisa! Thank u so much Lisa for this beautiful set! Hoping I did justice with this awesome set! 😊
Don't you wish you could buy coffee in this cute cup !!!

I masked my coffee cup stamp image because I wanted only an outline inking and paper pieced it with my coordinating die. Then I hand cut the coffee lid and inking it more dimensional. Added a folied snowflake doily in gold( Thank u so much Hetty Sanders for sending them, these are so pretty) underneath my coffee cup along with beautiful Poinsettias, some pine boughs. Added a layer of dry embossed coffee cups which is cut an edge using Border Builder dies. Also cut a PP using the same border die and mounted with foam adhesive on my green card base.
Added a die cut a bold Merry word with Christmas and finished it off by adding some golden half pearls and a punched snowflake with a sequin snowflake in white on my coffee lid. 

I added glossy accents to those berries.
