Mixed Media featuring cherished moments!

Hello, everyone!
Hope all of you enjoying this festive day!

I made a Mixed Media Canvas after a long time!
      Love the Fab colors of Final Moodboard by Valia Katzaki !!! Thank you SATW to inspire me a lot, but I am sad as this is your final challenge but at the same time also happy to participate in your final one:)
     This is so festive.  I love the shades of pink, violet, gold,the spirit of celebration, flowers in the jar!!!This is my second Mixed media Canvas representing Funtime and Fabulous memories with my daughter, celebrating Diwali festival and love the awesome result!
  I started my LO using a stencil and modeling paste and added colors using Gelatos.
 I covered a small bottle in gold glitter and added a bunch of florals inside.  For putting this on my canvas I made a textured base using modelling paste adding gelato to it.

 And using wild flower stencil I created a BG for my florals too and colored it with gelatos. Added some Platinum pearl dots.
For both the chipboard pieces,  Coated a layered of gesso and colored it with Chinese white acrylic color. 

Added gold stickles on the Cherish sentiment at the upper half portion and  heat embossed them.
  To create the floral wreath on a chipboard circle, I adhered colorful pollens on it.
Then I die cut a gold glitter sheet base for the placement of the photo. Then randomly added some stamping using the script and floral. Splashed some splatters using gelato color and distress ink.
I cut a small piece of pink mesh and adhered it under my photo. Layered lots of flowers, crochet flowers, leaves and a butterfly.
I added some gold microbeads on my flowers and onto the chipboard corner.
 Placed the glittered bottle and Cherish sentiment with a cute chipboard girl from my stash and finished this off by adding a gorgeous lace.
And lastly stamped the Memory sentiment!
Hope you guys enjoyed my Canvas creation!
Wishing all of you A Merry and Healthy Christmas!

Tea time

Hello dear friends!
Happy International Tea Lover's Day!

Today is a National Tea day, and I am a great Tea lover! Everything's better with glitter and very trendy these days and perfect for the Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop!
First of all, I die cut a set of two tea cups. I adhered a snippet of the white sheet on an adhesive sheet and die cut it. after removing the sticky paper from the top, I applied glitter on both of the cups. Adhered them on a die cut tag with pop dots. Took two different pattern papers and adhered them on a Pink colored CS base. Adhered a doily in half and added a die border washi tape in black.
For the sentiment, I used a stencil( I received it from my dear friend Hetty as extra goodies, Thank you so much Hetty)and a sentiment in between. On a snippet of the white sheet I placed a stencil and used my embossing pen. Then heat embossed the sentiment with Wow embossing powder. Die cut You + Me and glittered them using stick it adhesive sheet. Then using pop dots, I adhered the sentiment at the bottom and stamped a heart flame and heat embossed it with white seafoam powder first time and then fill the heart with snow marker and heat embossed it. Wow, what a gorgeous effect, love it! Then embellished it with some flowers and silver pine cone leaves.
I really enjoyed this creation! Hope you guys like it!

Seasons greetings

Hello everyone,
Happy December!
I created a card which can be used as a wall decor too, with lots of glimmer and shimmer to welcome this festive season in December! I went for Non -Traditional colors and blue is my fave color!
        Created a card blank by using card creator die out of blue shimmer sheets two times and mounted it on the snippet of  the white card base. And joined them for the top side as shown in the picture.
       I cut a card front out of PP for the focal point and matted it on a turquoise panel using Shapeabilities die and adhered it on a base panel using adhesive double tape. At the edges of the panel for the wintery look and create more interest and textures, I used my embossing pen and heat embossed with wow white puff twinkle powder.
      I took a chipboard flourish and glued it well and sprinkle silver glitter powder and let them dry. A little bird is another chipboard cutie which is heat embossed using wow powder.
     This is a perfect time to use my sticky adhesive sheets which I recently won from ken Oliver Products( Huge Thanks to Ken Oliver for this high-quality products and used here first time, so glad:)
I die cut the Seasons greetings sentiment using my white sheet and stick it onto the adhesive sheet, die cut it and glittered it in two shades, Ooooooh so gorgeous:) Love it!
     Stamped the Botanical roses on vellum using Versamark Ink pad, sprinkle opaque bright white powder and heat embossed it. Cut out them with coordinate dies. From the back side, shaded them using inks in white and blue. I pleated  all the petals of  the flowers using the tiniest embossing stylus. an embossing pad, shaped the flowers as I wanted the poinsettia look( I didn't have any on hand)!
    Now time to finalize all the elements. I placed my flowers using pop dots and placed a designer rhinestone in the centers with glittery winter foliage. Adhered the glittery flourishes with sentiments attached on it and popped them up using pop dots. Added my cute little birdie. For metallic element, I adhered two leaves and arranged them with my flowers and embellished it with few tiny stones.
     For finished it off, I hang a tiny star charm using  double shades silver and gold tone trimmer, So you can hang it for your Christmas Decor!
     Here is the  inside view:
     I placed a blank message tag with a flower.
Hope you enjoyed this festive creation!

Enjoy {xoxo}

Hello Friends!
Happy early Thanksgiving Day!
25 Days of Christmas Tags - Day 23
I am very much inspired by Laura Jane's pretty tag! I love the floral arrangement on stitched flower circle die by Waffle Flower, the color combo and the stripes on the BG are so balanced and gorgeous!
Here is my creation:

Firstly, I die cut a base for my tag and using ink smooshing technique I created this watercolored background using distress ink.
Then using the masking technique I created the striped panel using distress ink and dauber. Then I die cut a flower circle on a snippet of white CS and lightly misted it with water and distress color on it. On an another snippet of white CS, I stamped some flowers, leaves, bow by misting water, distress inks and markers, fussy cut out them. Now I adhered all of these onto my tag. I stamped the xoxo.
Then on another white CS, I watercolored the panel using my Japanese watercolor markers and die cut the sentiment and adhered it too.
Finally tied a shining flexible string which is perfect for this Christmas creation!

I hope you enjoyed this watercolored tag!

Supplies used:
Neenah solar White CS, Ivory CS
Waffle Flowers Stamp-Loved: Die-Flower circle
Distress inks- Seedless preserves, mermaid lagoon, cracked pistachio, crushed olive,

Sparkly Snowflakes Tag

Hello everyone!
Today I am sharing an easy and quick tag which is also inspired by the fun of  25 Days of Christmas Tags - Day 11 by Tracey, love the blending, sparkle & shine with a cute charming jingle bells on her blue tag!
Here is my creation:
       I stretched my die cut using the partial part of the bottom only for curves and blended some distress inks on a snippet of white CS.  Stamped the snowflakes and embossed it with my New embossing powder which have  great sparkly puff textures! Add a flag banner with a sentiment on it. Bling a tiny gem on the bigger one. I thought that X-mas tree charm was just the perfect little accent to add to my snowflake tag!  :)

These would make some really fun Christmas gift tag for friends, neighbors, co-workers.  I always enjoy seeing a smile on someone's face when I share something I've made with them! :)  It's just good for the soul!

Hope u enjoyed my creations!

Dec 25-Merry Christmas

Hello, friends!
Yesterday, I found a new and awesome blog and very much inspired by their sketch.

And here is my take on this wonderful sketch:
First I stamped this cute image on a snippet of watercolor CS, colored it with markers, fussy cut it and added diamond stickles to the snow.
Next I cut out a window from white color textured CS and gave the impression of piercing around the square for more interest. Then using dye inks and my mist water bottle, I created an ink smoosh technique BG and stamped  silhouette houses in black. Then for more texture I pierced both the edges.
Then I stamped the sentiment with the specific celebration date!
Using a stencil and embossing paste, I created a window scene BG for the image before adhering the panel.
Then I took a snippet of Kraft CS and adhered the window panel using adhesive foam pads and Finally placed the image using pop dots for depth and dimension to create this little cute scene.

I am also inspired with few more challenges I am inspired by colors.

Hope you enjoyed this fun creation and I am giving it to my son friend's younger brother, who recently required a Christmas creation for his class activity. So I would love to participate in Week 3 of the Share Handmade Kindness Challenge is all about kids!
