Peek-a-boo Birthday!

Good Afternoon all! 
It’s my last post as a DT for I want to thank Christina for the wonderful opportunity to design and create with the adorable stamp kits! I am featuring the cutest little bear.
 I have created a little scene using stitched circle die! The little teddy is playing peek-a-boo in the tree house and is holding a lovely balloon to wish a very Happy Birthday!! The papers that I used are also from amuse studio with happy die cut. I stamped the sentiment using black archival ink. I stamped the cute little bear three times and slightly colored it using iced Spruce Distress marker. Added glossy accents on them and fussy cut, popped it with foam dots.  And finished my card with a cute button and twine bow.
Supplies used:
amuse studio supplies: I’m Here stamp set (retired), Contempary Greetings stamp set (retired), Cherry Woodgrain cardstock, Happy die, Large Scalloped border die
Waffle flower floral stitched die
Jef balloon punch
Diamond stickles

Vellum and Daisy flowers

Hello Friends!
Happy Monday!
This is my DT post for and there theme is to use 'vellum'.  When I saw the oval shaped solid stamp from amuse studio, I got a fun idea to create a daisy flower using this stamp! And here is my creation!
I slightly pressed the two shades of distress inks on the stamp and misted it with water and stamped it on a snippet of watercolor paper and created this beautiful daisy flower and fussy cut it out! Isn't it looking cool and pretty!

After that I have created a BG using Mod background stamp on my white card base and added a strip of Cherry petite polka dot strip. Then I laid a snippet of vellum sheet over it to soften my BG. Then I adhered three more thin stripes of vellum sheets at the center, and stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it. Then popped up my daisy flowers and some vellum leaves with few sequins.
Hope you enjoyed this cool creation!

Supplies used:
White CS, vellum sheet
Amuse studio stamps-Mod Backgrounds stamp set, Ovals stamp set (retired), Contemporary Greetings stamp set (retired), Cherry Petite Polka dot CS.

Love U Dad

Happy Tuesday!
 This is my DT post for and this week theme is Father's Day!!! And here is my first Masculine creation!!!
This time I chose a Kraft CS for my base. On a watercolor paper, I have created a very cool water color technique. I took my Black soot and white linen Distress markers  and created circle swatches of ink(using brush tip) ...covering the entire piece of Watercolor Paper. Then i used a large solid circle and water spritzer.
 Next, mist the solid circle with plain water and 'stamp' onto the watercolor paper that I colored.  Keep misting/spritzing and stamping all over the paper until you get the paper pretty....definitely not damp, but not soaking and dripping in water, either.  You will see the colors start to fade into each other. And let it be dry properly. Isn't it cool different Bokeh Technique!
 Then I stamped the sentiment using second generation stamping method as I wanted a little faded look. I adhered a window panel and my watercolor piece on my Kraft CS base and added a scalloped border. 
    On another snippet of watercolor paper I stamped the trophy in black pigment ink and embossed it with clear gloss 4 times for shine and gloss! And matted it on my beaded circle nesting die cut. And finished it off with a washi tape, few sequins, silver colored number 1 die cut on a trophy and a tiny heart and a twine!
Isn't it cool creation for Father's Day!
Have a wonderful day!

SummerCoffeeLoversBH_Sponsors (3)

Here is my creation with summer theme.....
 I am a tea lover and my morning starts with a cup of Indian Masala tea:)  So, I made this very special card for a tea lover just like me!
I chose a floral PP and  did  third generation stamping in red colour for wood panel look. Then  I cut it into four panels and distressed  the edges. And adhered all the panels on a snippet of green colored wooden paper and then brown CS base. Then I added doilies and  die cut stripes. At the focal point I adhered a vellum gift holder and sprayed some golden splatters very lightly. I stamped the tea cup and a little tea bag on a watercolor sheet, colored with distress inks, Added some glossy accents and few sequins on a cup for more shine. I attached the cup with a green paper clip using pop dot. The sentiment was stamped in Black Archival ink. 
I made my own hand made Gerbera flowers using octagon die cuts, distressed them and coated a thin layer of  PVC glue mixed with diamond dust powder in water to stiffen them and give them some shine. To complete them I added brads for that elegant look!
I added a golden colored thread under the flowers and embellished with a beautiful butterfly sticker ! To top it off I put a Enjoy Sentiment sticker.
Now for the gift holder part -  I put a tea bag in the holder with a cute little spoon for a nice cup of tea to be enjoyed while sitting in their garden while looking at my card! Hehehe !!!
Hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did making it !

Rainbow clouds!

Hello Friends!
Its good to be back! For a month I have been facing problems with my internet connection. Still it is not working properly but I had to share my newest creation with you all lovely people and I did despite slow connection !!
So here is my DT creation for Catchy Challenges! The theme is inspired by the picture given below:
And here is my interpretation on this theme:

To start, I took a watercolor white cardstock panel and inked it up with four different distress ink colors in rainbow order . I cut a vellum panel (same size as the cardstock panel) and  I adhered the vellum over the top of the inked panel and just look at how the vellum really softens those ink colors!
Then I diecut a tag and using my cloud stencil and background image using same distress inks to make the cute little clouds! Then added some raindrops and applied glossy accent for a real look! The sentiment is embossed on a snippet of vellum and I adhered an umbrella sticker on it! Isn't it a cute creation to make anyone smile.......
And I added few Sparkling Clear sequins for raindrops and a grey colored twine from Tim Holtz.
I hope u like my creation!
