Hello friends!

Happy Wednesday!

This is just the right time to make cards for any celebrations, festive occasions!

I made a birthday card with autumn colors in traditional style to show this beautiful Mehendi Mandala design from Uniko. I just use the biggest design from the set.

It is just so relaxing to sit and color the design!

I started by creating a background using dye inks on a white panel and added a red layered CS underneath it.

Now stamped the Mehendi Mandala image two times on a scrap of a white sheet, watercolored both, fussy cut it. And take out the centre circle only using a circle die from the other one as shown in the pic.

Now adhered that panel to my base card with my watercolored Mehendi design. Added the Celebrate sentiment.

Love the dimension and bright colors on it! Hope you like it!

Happy crafting!

Poppy flowers Pop-up card!

 Hello to everyone!

Happy Monday!

This is a pop-up card with an autumn colour feel on it. I love to experiment with my work and for the first time tried the pop-up elements inside with simple cutting and creases.

I started with an A4 white CS and created the creases in between as shown in the below pic. Now fold it on the creases.

Now stamp the layering poppies using Altenew inks and the last layer I heat embossed in silver sparkle EP.

Die-cut a cross-stitched oval frame shape out of a snippet of silver Mirror CS. And blended the outer space using DI, I used my oval die for blending the colour and added some white splatters.

Now hand-drawn some flowers and watercolored them. Using an embossing pen I created some silver sparkle outlines and details to the bunch to match with my poppy flowers. And placed that die cut oval on it. 

Die-cut a hug sentiment our of a snippet of silver mirror CS and placed it.

Now here comes the inside part.
I started by stamping Poppy flowers with a heat embossing layer. And created a watercolored background using my ZIG brushes with a hand-drawn butterfly.

Now my inside part is completed with a bunch of flowers in autumn colors.

I applied DI all over the edges and heat embossed the sentiment in silver sparkle EP. Created a silver sparkle outline using an embossing pen and some splatters.

Now how I popped up and gave cuts to my design shown in the below pic with some creases and added a silver mirror sheet to the other side. 

Here are some close-ups.

I enjoyed making this pop-up card. Hope you all like it!

Festive card with embroidery stitching!

Hello everyone!

Happy Saturday!

I created a festive stitched dimensional card this time with an autumn colors feel on it!

I started by die cut a decorative accent in white CS. And stitched with red embroidery thread as shown below. This die is perfect for making cards, decor and more.

2nd step, again stitched with red embroidery thread for more decorative design.

Then I stitched more with a peach coloured embroidery thread. I added some rhinestones to it. I added some foam tape to the back of my scalloped red circle and matted it on a white circle.

For my background panel, I die cut the same decorative accents and flip-up some of the parts out of it as shown in the below pic. Adhered a red stripe with a festive saying on it which is heat embossed.

Can you see the sparkles on the sentiment, its impact is more beautiful in real.

Now on a white basic panel added a shimmering sheet in peach color and adhered my top panel on it. As a finishing touch, I added some rhinestones too as an embellishment for some sparkle on it.

Hope you all enjoyed the process!

Happy crafting!

Birthday wishes in pink!

Hello friends!

Happy Friday!

I came up with a pink theme card for the Birthday celebration! Tried to be CAS here!

I used a beautiful stencil from Uniko adding three various shades of pink on a dotted rectangle panel.

I love the size of this beautiful bloom.  

I like the idea in my head of layering in the centre of the card, added dimensions to my card with a spotlight of the flower.
Die-cut a fern branch in the snippets of black and baby pink Cs and adhered only the leaved part on the black one.

Popped up the vase with a fern stem on the centre panel.

The sentiment is also from another Uniko stamp set and added the whole panel to the black card base.

An inside look:

I think the vase really added interest to the background, what do you think?

Happy crafting!

Unforgettable Moments Mixed media home decor hearts

 Hello friends!

Happy Wednesday!

Created some MDF plaques to decor the home wall with my own handmade art in mixed media style.

It's very difficult to take the pic with all 3 pieces together in one frame, I tried my best!

First of all, I started recycling my empty masking tape rolls. Gave them a coat of chalk paints and then added washi tapes. Adjusted the boy and girl toys by glue gun.

Now Applying a coat of gesso and all 3 heart-shaped plaques. Then gave a coat of snow chalk paint to all. Added decoupage napkins pieces to each one.
Added textures using stencils and texture paste to each one.

Now added gold alcohol splash inks to all and somewhere applies copper wax to the textures for more dimension as shown in below pics.

Now added those tape rolls to two of the hearts for boy and girl, Embellished all three using handmade flowers, embellishments and laces.

So here is the final project all 3 pieces together!
And don't forget to apply a coat of clear varnish. Hope you all like it!
