Vintage roses with an envelope message

Hello everyone!
Today I am presenting a beautiful creation.
I am very much inspired by ICR watercolor blog hop and Altenew photo inspiration! Blue is my fave color too:) I used lots of elements from here- Colors, Pattern, Tiny envelope, silver, wooden cutout and few pearls. Here is the pic: Color theme is Navy & Coral.
November 2015 challenge
And here is my creation:
I created a pearlised watercolored border stripe using the masking technique on a snippet of white CS. You can see the shine below in the picture.
 On a masking paper, I stamped some vintage roses and leaves  and die cut them. Created this gorgeous rose panel along the border using Altenew and memento dye inks.
Trimmed a PP stripe for texture and added on my watercolored border. For more interest and dimension, I adhered some of the flower using pop dots.

I die cut a tiny envelope and heat embossed the inside using embossing powder. Die cut the hello sentiment two times and placed all things on my base panel.
Embellished it with few pearls and a wooden butterfly( Thank you Mrs. A for this beautiful flutter by- I won her beautiful rak as a winner from Butterfly challenge)
Hope you enjoyed my creation!
This card is going out to my Family doctor!

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,
Distress markers-Seedless preserves, picked raspberry, shaded lilac
Japanese watercolor markers

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!

Supplies used:

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!

Christmas tag

Hello Friends!
Good morning!
                       I made my first tag  for this wonderful season and would love to play along  25 Days of Christmas Tags by Tracey at  In My Creative Opinion! There are lots of  inspirational creations by all talented artist and so many Fab sponsors! I love to make my own tags and I am very much inspired by Nicki Scheck creation from Day 11! Love how beautifully she blended the bottom half and embossed the edge with some gold! And I am very much inspired with gold at paper smooches.

   Here is my creation:
               My tag featured a cute penguin from Santa's helper and guys do you know I also added border die1 from paper smooches to create this heavy snow fall scene! And I love the result:). Added a twine to the hill border for more snowy effect and this cute penguin is jumping with joy! I blended my bottom tag using watercolor pencils for the first time and very much satisfied with the final result! I stamped my image in a snippet of white CS, water colored and fussy cut it. Then once again I stamped the image on my tag and then pop up my image.
I covered my tag with a vellum and stamped the sentiment in gold, love the shine and sparkle! Here is a close up of the sentiment.
One more pic- I think this is the perfect sentiment for this cute penguin!
    I hope you enjoyed my creation!
Supplies used:
Snippet of white CS and vellum
Dies-Paper Smooches Borders1 and Tags 4 from Nelle's

Hello my friends!
Hope all of you are enjoying your weekend!
Today I made a card for my family to share love and happiness! In Hindus, Diwali is the most famous festival which is on 11th of November! So I made this beautiful creation with a Thanks sentiment!
Jennifer has started the kindness campaign on her blog! She is very Talented, kind hearted and generous person! I love her unique style and love all her video with lots of inspirations! So I am sharing my creation for the first week which is SHARE HANDMADE KINDNESS CHALLENGE WEEK 1: FRIENDS & FAMILY! 
For this card, I splattered some color burst on my nonporous sheet, misted with some water and firmly pressed a white CS on it. See the result!
     I had a leftover embossed piece in my stash (shown in the pic) and I wanted to use it in my creation and a new idea click in my mind.
I used my embossed sheet and pressed it  firmly again on that misted sheet for the second time, I got a very soft effect on the embossed panel.
    Recently I won a GV from Altenew (Thank you so much) and I ordered some more things along with the gift voucher that was Vintage rose stamps and  some ink pads! I stamped some vintage roses on the raised large floral part using Altenew inks. Then I water colored those small flowers and stamped those leaves using Memento dye inks.
   I took a white CS as my base. Then I cut that color burst panel in L shape and adhered it on the base panel. On a snippet of white CS, I dragged a Memento Grape Jelly ink pad and cut them into two pieces and adhered them on the panel as shown in the pic. Now I adhered that embossed panel.
I die cut the Thanks sentiment three times and colored one of them using the ink pad. Adhered onto the other two showing some white space, added glossy accents for some depth and dimension! I added diamond stickles on few places for more interest! Love how it turned out!
Hope you enjoyed this technique and like my creation!

Supplies used:
Snippets of white CS
Altenew Vintage roses stamp and Red Cosmos 4 in 1 pack
Color bursts- Violet, Alizarin crimson, lemon yellow. orange
