You are so charming!


Happy Wednesday!

Time for another challenge with a theme on Movies at Cut It Up Challenges! I have created this cute Dino card inspired by the movie "The Good Dinosaur".

On a circle die-cut shape  I created a sunrise scene with hills, clouds and sandy ground using 3 different stencils as shown in the pic below. Love the summery feel and effect I got on it!

The cute dino is stamped, watercoloured and fussy cut. Added some details with a white gel pen.

Die-cut some palm trees and watercolored them too.

Arranged the scene with some dimension and interest. The sentiment is heat embossed on a turquoise angled strip.

Added some dew drops as an embellishment.

Happy crafting!

I missing my ocean trips from last two years and this card feels me like a trip to the ocean, relax in a hammock and stare at the boats at the sea:) A real treat!

Then die cut some triangles out of a white CS and PP to create my nautical boat shape. Die cut a light house and watercolored it.

Hello gorgeous!

 Hello to all!

Time to hit the beach, take a vacation and spend some relaxing time or create a summery card like this one!! I made a splashing puddle fun card with a pair of gorgeous Flamingoes with a water theme!

I cut the splashing puddles background in white and blended some distress inks for raining and splashing.

Die cut a pair of Flamingoes in white and inked them in shades of pink, added black color to the beak and eyes.

Just cut the more bottom rings and some rain puddles to add to my scene. Stamp the sentiment on the card.

Added the scalloped border with dimension.  Added the flamingoes with foam pads for dimension and stand in the water. Stamped some ripples in the water.

Beautiful Blue with stained glass technique!


Happy Monday!

Some weeks ago I bought a few glitter bottles and couldn't wait to give them a go. So Today I pulled out some memory box dies and used them for my card with glitter fun!


I started with to make a Tessatina border using some snippets of white cards and using double sided adhesive sheets. Added some different shades of blue color glitters for shining glaze. Die cut a hug word out of navy blue glitter sheet. And some stenciling was done using DI.

Then die cut this beautiful butterfly die 4 times or memory box which is my fave too and used the same steps to achieve the stained glass look!

Now adhered that flutter by and as an embellishment added some light blue drops.

I think all the blue hues peeking out from the border would be reminiscent of bright blue skies.....something I am surely missing these rainy day!

Happy crafting!

On a stitched die cut white panel, I used my ZIG watercolor brushes for creating watercoloring stripes randomly.

Love the summery colors.  And stamped the sentiment in black.

Then die cut some clips and ticket style squares. Then stamped some flowers using same colors.  Lightly watercolored them. Love these colorful clips. 

Added some tiny granules of same colors to the flower centers to brighten more.
