Warm Wishes with Peonies!

Hello to all!
Happy Thursday!!

It's December already! And time to prepare some New year, Christmas or celebrations card to gift someone!

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. 
After coloring, fussy cut them, added some white dots using white gel pen and black detail pen dots too.




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.





 Finished the card by adding clear rhinestones and glass slippers sequins.
Hope you inspired to color yours!

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.
And Here is the inside message in the coffee cup of my daily drinking coffee schedule!!!




That's for a day!

Hello World!

Hello everyone!
Happy Friday!

Today, I am on Cut It Up Challenges Blog along with a beautiful theme World hello day to brighten someone day!




This is my take on this pretty sketch! 


This one has a graphic look along with six pretty blooms. I inked up my stencil with a stick blending tool as shown in the pic by masking technique. As I want the Geo design at the top only. I inked only four columns of geo stripes across my card in tones of blues and yellow!




I stamped some Mogras with blue ink and layered them in the tones of blues and greens only. Added depth with my Polychromos pencils. Added some dots using Sakura white gel pen for more interest. The Hello World is a chippie word which is also inked up and highlighted with adding white dots.




I love the final output!

25 Days of Christmas Tag Day 16

Hello friends!

 There are such varieties and a lot of pretty inspiration tags to start your Christmas tags with awesome sponsors at 25 days of Christmas Tags by talented Tracey!

My tag is inspired by Day 16! I chose Emily's pretty tag with unique glittery background effects as my inspiration and I love how she replaced the letter O with a snowflake to create the word JOY.



To create my Joy word I also die cut the letter J &Y and added a metal snowflake for the letter O.
I love the colors mint hues with sugar spun, it reminded me of a sweet green watermelon with vibrant ruby red pulp!




I blended cracked Pistachio and candied apple DI for my background. Instead of applying glimmer paste ( I don't have it )I applied crystal clear Nuvo drops with my palette knife to create the shimmer.
Then I punched out some snowflakes in gold foil sheet with some white snowflakes sequins. Added the pearl dots for the impact of falling snow.  In the end, added a loop tag blended with DI and a green color twine bow.

And this is so easy and quick to make for gifting purpose to make someone smile!

STAMPlorations Guest Designer Post #4

Hello to all!
Happy Wednesday!


Time to share some Inspiration for Wonderful Wednesday Coloring at Stamplorations with dear Renne and Gwendolyn!


Card#1
No line watercoloring with Lotus love




Beautiful Lotus flowers a hit for me as it seems they are with you too!
I stamped few of the blooms, leaves and stems using masking technique in Tattered rose DI.




For coloring, this time I used my Staedtler watercolor pencils! And added some water wash splatters, hard to see.





For the sentiment, I cut a handmade tag in black and heat embossed the sentiment in opaque bright white EP. This tag is then foam mounted on the panel. Added a double shade baker twine to finished off as an accent!
Needless to say, I had great fun painting these flowers!

Supply list

Cardstocks: White Watercolored textured sheet, black CS
Stamps: Lotus love and a sentiment from City Girl stamp sets from Stamplorations
Watercolor Pencils: Staedtler
Embossing Powder: Opaque bright white from Wow
Water brushes
Baker Twine


Card #2
Best in Me

My first card is highlighting the quote with a bunch of layered flowers!
I absolutely love the series of Typographia stamps! Not only they are wonderful quotes and easy to create custom sentiments!




First, I die cut a tag using the smallest rectangle with double running stitched rectangles and eyeletted it. Then stamped the quote using black archival ink.




I think the mix of fonts is so beautiful and really wanted to take centre stage. I made two horizontal slits along the bottom of my card front.  I started by blending my card front along with my tag with three different color dye inks. Then spritzed with water. Added some splatters with perfect pearls.
I stamped some flowers. I applied the dye inks directly on the stamp shown in the below pic.


Colored them and highlighted with glitter pens. I fussy cut apart all those leaves to make my bunch of flowers.



I just tucked all my flowers and leaves with dimensions along with my tag. I love these bunch of flowers with Perfect sentiment highlighting so well!

Supply List

Cardstock: Glossy white CS
Stamps: Typographia Romantique- Best in Me and Sweet Spring Wishes from Stamplorations
 Dies: Double Running Stitched Rectangles from Cutplorations

Perfect Pearls: silver

Card#3
Layered sunflowers


I fell in love with this Typographia Best in Me saying so I decided to make another one but combined it with a Pocket Blooms stamp set and different color palette!


 


I die cut a panel and stamped directly those pretty blooms in DO at both corners and lightly watercolored them. You can see the difference clearly. I watercolored the top corner and left the bottom corner as it is.




Then inked up the same bloom image using Curved pumpkin DI.




Then stamp that saying in black archival ink on another die cut panel and matted them.

Two pretty cards!

Hello friends!
Happy Saturday!
 I m so excited to share with you two pretty cards that I created with awesomely printed Critter sheets and this time I received some uncolored images too in my DCAM DT kit!!!

My first card is showcasing pretty Anemones! I really enjoyed coloring them and these florals are perfect for any coloring medium!


Card#1
Pretty Anemones



To create my own pattern background, Placed the dual cube stencil on the white surface area and secure it with washi tape or painters tape. Add pattern to your project by blending inks. Gently pull the stencil off from the project area to see the result.



This stencil will help you to create an amazing woven background. Flip the stencil over the pattern and then apply the different color to achieve the good result.

Then I fussy cut some anemones from the ready to color anemones critter sheet and started coloring with some Chameleon pens. Add depth by shading using polychrome pencils of the same color shades.




Die cut some duo leaves, colored them and added some white gel pen dots.




Now I placed the stencilled panel in two different angles with my blooms and leaves. Added the fussy cut sentiment.  Added the fussy cut Congratulations banner from Sentimental bannerrific Critter sheet. Embellished it with some enamel dots.
Love the way it turned out so beautiful! I hope you enjoyed this card. There are a lot of possibilities with this critter sheet Anemones flower!

Cardstocks: Glossy white CS

Card #2
Humming Bird




I started by fussy cutting some floral clusters, leaves and hummingbirds from DCAM Hummingbird critter sheet.




On a piece of heavy white CS, I created a woodgrain background using texture paste and with my woodgrain tool I created the textures and inked it. While it is still a little wet I sprinkled some Mermaid glitter powder for more interest and textures.




That beautiful border on the bottom was created by die cutting one of the dies from DCAM Pierced Scallop Borders dies set.





Isn't that hummingbird absolutely amazing? Seriously, Mansi Thinks of everything!!!
It is so easy to create any scene with dimensions and textures with so many components! And that bold chiplet sentiment Hello is icing on the cake! Finished it off with a shine on sentiment and some gold dots.
