A special Birthday

Hi everyone!
happy Friday!
                    I made a Birthday card for a cute little baby boy who turned one! I followed the sketch for the latest sketch challenge at Little Claire's Design.

The image I used is from My Grafico - Baby Basket and I coloured it with promarkers. The gingham baby print paper is from DCWV and the dotted paper is from my stash. My base is a white ivory CS and I layered some baby blue and yellow CS and stitched them (real). I made a photo frame out of blue jute sheet and adhered the image in it. I added soft blue colour to the background of image using Scrappin Chalk.

 I added a heart printed ribbon in  turquoise and put on a soft yellow bow. I attached a flower charm and baby word die cut with a raffia. I have used a fun puffy sticker sentiment.
Here is the inside view:

The sentiment is from Baby wall Quote and just perfect for this sweet image and highlighted by blue Sakura Gelly pen.
Other supplies used:
Square Thincutz die from Itsy Bitsy
Tim Holtz Bigz die Regal crest for Banner
Silver textured sheet
White Raffia
White Sepia Flower
Readymade silver die cut baby charms

Day Dreamer

Hi everyone!

I thought this is the perfect time to make boys or men cards, so here is another one . I made this card for my nephew's   birthday who is 12 years old and a day dreamer....

The stamp is used from Whimsy stamps by Elizabeth Bell( new) called Little Jack and Bobbin snoozin'. He is just cute and adorable. The whole image was a lot of fun to colour and I loved working on that tree and ground using my promarkers. I used a watercolour CS and create a cloudy scene using Distress ink. And I love using plaid paper background.
I used a Day Dreamer chipboard sentiment. Applied Gesso and let it dry, then I distressed it and added Diamond glitter and heat embossed it. Then tied it with a baker twine using an eyelet.
I also distress a white craft lace ribbon partially which I won recently. And I attached a baker twine with his Fishing stick holding some fish charms.
Here is the inside view of the card which is perfectly matched with a perfect sentiment "Life is Beautiful" and added golden and blue glitter on it.

Hello Dad

Hi crafting friends!
                              I made a CAS card for the Father's Day Celebration. I decided to go with a technique called misting with distress inks.

 I used white textured paper(new in my stock). To make the striped edge I stamped the striped vintage border from WR memory keepers in Faded jeans and tumbled glass. Then I used a square punch and misted some square CS too using faded jeans and placed them on another white panel. Then I placed a marble print circle on the square pieces. I stamped a telephone image thrice(I won this stamp from Fussy and Fancy as a blog Hop winner,which is very cute!!!), coloured it using faded jeans distress ink and adhered a dial from the other image stamped in black. I applied glossy accent on it to give it a sheen. I placed a vellum banner and stamped the sentiment Hello Dad from WR Memory Keepers dad set with versamark embossing pad and heat embossed it using Wow Black twinkle and spice ice blue embossing powder. I placed a die cut from  Spellbinder Shapeabilities just swingin by set and used this die as a music note (isn't it a good idea?) using black glittered foam sheet . I distressed the white CS edges too. I adhered the telephone image with pop up dots for dimension.

 For the inside, I applied distress ink on craft sheet and sprayed water for misting . Putting my CS upside down, I let it absorb the colours and then tipped my paper to create a drip effect.  I popped up the image and fussy cut out it but this time the reciever is detatched from the hooks. The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping Big Wishes ll  and heat embossed it using Twinle Black powder and highlighted it with Sakura Blue Glitter pen. I stitched both of the panels. I used a light blue silver cord, a vintage button and a heart as embellishments.
 I am very happy after created this card using this technique!!!

When dreams come true!

Hello Crafters!!!
Good Day to all of you!
   Today, I am sooooo excited to announce that I have been asked to join the Tuesday Throwdown Team as a Guest Designer for this month, I'm feeling so honored!!! So, this is my very first post over on the challenge blog. This week sponsor is Robyn's Fetish. My image is It's a Dragonfly Day and I tried to give it a new look!!! This week challenge theme is use Paints or Mists.
      I went for a bright card. And I was in a mood  to use watercolors. so I made a watercolor Misted background using Fevicryl acrylic color. I did wet on wet technique which is basically sprayed with water first, then added acrylic colour using Koi Brush and blend them until I was satisfied with the result. Love how the color blended!

 After that I embossed the watercolour paper using Embossing folder Spots from Itsy Bitsy.  Using Spellbinder Nestabilities Large Scalloped Octagons die cut , I added a OHP sheet to make it a shaker card and put some sequins and small beads.
                                                For Dragonfly, I colored it first and then added some colorful beads, pearls, stones, double shade ringlets, iron nails near the wings. And added extra wings using acetate sheet and gave it a 3D look.
 I printed my image two times and color the flowers with my promarkers. I paper pieced the flowers. I cut each and every petal of the flower and gave it a dimension for 3 D look too. Applied glossy accents(new in my stock) and black beads at the center of the flower and popped my image. Here is a closer look:
 I made a border using Jef punches and added colorul gemstones.

 Take a peep at the inside too:

                                    The sentiment is free and I watercolored it and added Sakura golden glaze, some sequins, rhinestones too.
Isn't it looking amazing? In my opinion this card doesn't need no other embellishments. So what do you think?
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
