Flip flop Portable card set

Hello friends!
Mother's Day is just around the corner, and if you're close with your mom, you know she deserves the best!
A surprise and unique gift for Mom!
This time, I have something different than my usual works! I created a portable and folded card which can be used in many ways along with one more card set!

Picture heavy post!

I used Papericious papers from 2 different stacks, they are sooooo beautifully designed. Used Tim Holtz stencils to create beautiful, delicate and matching textures and sentiments from Altenew stamp set, script sentiment too. I attached the metal corners with metal beads to stand it prpoerly, you can use it as lamp shade too. And if you remove the corners, you can easily fold it!

The main panel.
I love this gorgeous paper, added a window chipboard frame, perfect for embellishment, handmade and die cut flowers.

The second panel.

The third panel.
It can also hold the most favorite photos, memories and messages.
The fussy cut PP charm piece is attached to the cardboard. I placed some micro beads and a metal embellishment and covered it with glossy accents to give a faux glass effect!
And the fourth panel.

Here is the matching card set!

I am very much inspired by golden work, floral adjustment, and textures!
I am just loving the Wild Hibiscus set , perfect sentiments for mom!
Look at the wild hibiscus, how gorgeous they are with gold shimmer! I watercoloered and fussy cut  them with a cute butterfly and applied some gold shimmer and a golden doily.
I placed a chipboard sentiment which is distressed and applied glossy accents for more fun and glossy accents droplets!
When you opened the woodgrain panel, it looks like that.

And here is the inside view:

A card set using one stamp set

Hello, all!
How are you! Hope super fine!
This time, I created a card set focusing on one stamp set! This stamp set is sooooo pretty and versatile, I am in love with it!!!

 Firstly, I made a CAS card after a long gap with cute critters and here it is: I love the soft color palette:)

Here is my take on YNS sketch and color challenge, I used both!


Stamped some paws randomly with Versamark embossing ink on a super white CS and heat embossed it with opaque bright white powder. Then, I simply added some beautiful blends of distress inks with perfect pearls water on my block( to add a bit of shimmer and shine) and allowed them to flow!

Stamp the critters images on a textured CS. I used watercolored pencils to add definition and contrast to the images.
Die cut an oval shape out of black CS and poke the holes measuring with pencil and tied it with a double color twine. Stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it. Placed the oval die cut in the center panel. Added these cute critters using foam pads and a tiny metal heart.

On a second card, I created a Sweet Birthday celebration scene using same stamp set and lot of dies.
I started with watercolored CS and blended the distress inks to create the sky and ground. Then I cut some grass stripes and blended them with Distress inks. Die cut a window and using my die as a stencil I sponged it. Die cut a puffy cloud out of white CS and a piece of vellum too. Die cut some flowers out of light and dark pink colored foam sheets. Stamped all the images on a textured CS and colored them using my watercolor pencils.
Before arranging the whole scene, I placed all the grass stripes and cloud borders on my white panel to create the stitching detail for more interest using a washi tape. You can see clearly in the above pic.

Stamped the sentiment on a cloud border and heat embossed it. Stamped some stars in jet black ink and arranged the whole scene using foam pads. Then tied a cute heart along with twine and embellished the window with few pearls.

Here are the both cards!

 Hope you enjoyed my creation!

Makeover of a jute hand clutch!

Hello friends!
                       This time I tried to create something different, the makeover of a jute hand clutch!
Isn't it cute!!!!
         I applied gesso on the front cover (2 coats) and let it dry. Using Tim Holtz stencil I created my background with distress inks. Then I experimented to stamp this cute Tilda image directly using Misti, but because of jute stuff, it doesn't appear well( I tried so many times). So I stamped the image on 400gsm white sheet and colored the image using distress markers.
         I made my own handmade flowers inspiring by Dr. Sonia S V. She is very talented and a master in making handmade flowers and, this time, I made my rose flowers out of felts! She is celebrating her Celebrating 5 Million Page views!!!! Can you imagine guys!!!
        Then I attached the different laces to my clutch and decorated it with my flowers, a jute butterfly, felt leaves, mulberry flower in green, white pearl string and few sequins and a cute bird cage charm hanging with a brad!
          Hope you all  enjoyed this cute creation! And its perfect for gifting someone to make her day more brighter!

Supplies used:
Distress markers: Ripe persimmon, squeezed lemonade, salty ocean, peacock feathers, picked raspberry, seedless preserves, gathered twigs,
Promarkers: Putty
Stabilo black fine pen
Archival jet black ink
Tim Holtz Scribbles layering stencil
Die-namics Large and Small rose die set
Pink, Red, Dark green and white colored felt sheets
