A cup of tea!

Hello to all!
Happy Tuesday!

This time I thought I will participate regularly in this amazing Spring/summer Coffee Lovers blog hop! But unfortunately, my son is suffering from high fever from last two days and got little time to make a card. Just completed this one, filled with wild greenery, enjoying a cup of tea making everything better! And this totally suited my situation!!! Hoping he will recover soon!

I started with a white color panel using double running stitch rectangle and die cut a label too. By placing some palm leaves die cut them out. 

 I placed the palm leaf on an angel out from the label die.

Now blended some distress inks on both.
Applied distress ink on my craft sheet, spritz some water and added the ink to my leaves with desire look. Added some water splatters and remove extra water with paper towel. Added some distress ink splatters too for more interest. Inlaid all those leaves to the negative cuts and main panel to my white card base. Using jet black ink added the sentiment double time with little shadow and filled the space with my black pen. I love the result. Adhered it using foam tape.

Finished it off with a white wooden butterfly and some wildflowers with a foam rose. It is all the magic of blending, die-cutting and inlaid all those dies! I enjoyed the process of making this card and love how it turned out.

Day 1- Hello coffee

Happy Friday!

Yayyy! The day has just arrived!!! I always eagerly waiting for one of my favorite hop and Today is day 1 with amazing sponsors and organized by very Talented Amy Tsuruta!!!!


I love this delicate coffee cup which is overflowing with pretty spring plants. It is steeped in details and was a delight coloring it the way I like!
Recently there was a  GDT application call from Stamplorations Stamps and I got this image to showcasing my coloring skills. Glad to tell you all that I am selected as GDT to the end of this year term:) Feeling amazing!!!!

I fancy summer colors and I had to envision the bouquet in hues of blues and greens!

To achieve the desired result, I watercolored using different mediums. Here I played with my Zig Clean Color brushes. After I was done coloring up the individual portions, I went back and added some depth with my Staedtler watercolor pencils. I fussy cut the image and placed it on to my Crazy Double Running Stitch panel which is partially hand cut too!

Some close-ups:

Now placed it on my base card where I already complimented it with a woody texture PP.
Popped up the focal panel using foam dots. Added a die cut sentiment with shadowing!

Embellished it with few dew drops!

I was very happy seeing the final result - A coffee cup with colourful spring flowers in full bloom!!

Altered wedding photo frame !

Hello friends!
Happy Friday!

I altered a beautiful wooden photo frame with my own handmade flowers in summer colors! And this is the result! Perfect gift for couples!!!



I started off with my centre panel. Covered the MDF cardboard with black color CS for the photo panel!

Die cut all the flowers from Tattered florals and ton of leaves from Meadow butterfly. Now dip my all petals and leaves in a bowl filled with clean water for a minute and applied different inks as shown in the pic using earbud and finger daubers. Colored all the flowers and leaves like this.

To create the textures I used the embossing tools and embossing pad as shown in the pic. Assembled all the flowers to create different color roses in different sizes.

Applied some texture pastes mixing with distress ink in it on both sides of the frame panel and before drying, quickly sprinkled the crystal clear powder on it. On all 4 inner sides adhered the half pearl beads as shown in the pic!

Now die cut some meadow butterfly 3 times. And colored them. One of the butterfly I added some sprinkled colored dots for more textures, shown in the pic.

Die cut the text sentiment 3 times out of black CS and one from white CS. Colored the white one as shown in the pic.

Now made a stack of this sentiment and on the top layer sprinkled the crystal clear powder on it using a glossy accent.

And decorate the photo frame panel from all sides.

It is much more beautiful than in the photo! I had so much fun making the flowers
I hope you all enjoyed this altered frame, enjoy crafting!

Floral on vellum with stripes!

Hello friends!
Happy Monday!

I've really enjoyed the inspirational challenges these days and took my inspiration for this pretty color theme here!

I die cut a vellum stitched circle. The floral image is heat embossed and colored with my distress markers and shading was done using my watercolor pencils for more depth. Stamped those tiny butterflies using Memento ink. Stamp the sentiment on an angle using same ink.

Now die cut a white running stitched rectangle panel. Using masking tape created those stripes using same memento ink and added some splatter too. Adhered this panel on my stitched card base using foam double tape. Added that vellum circle on the striped panel. Finished it off with some pretty glittery yellow enamel dots and some details using white gel pen.
I totally love the final outcome on this! Hoping you enjoyed this creation!
Happy crafting!

It's your birthday!

Hello to all!
Happy Friday!

Quickly wanted to share my latest project!

Firstly, I started by blending two colors at the right side of the panel and misted it with water. I added a floral PP to my card base using a curved border die.

I made my own chipboard frame and sentiment label using a thin cardboard and added a pastel color texture PP on the cardboard.
I here used lots of different dies to make my floral cluster and leaves. Added wooden beads in the centre of flowers. 

The dazzling dragonfly is cut from a white textured sheet. On my craft mat, I randomly add two colors, misted with water and added them to my dragonfly. Die cut the wings from acetate sheet also and adhered on the top of the wings to give dimension to the dragonfly. Added clear wink of Stella to wings and dragonfly for shine. Added at the distressed side too.

Now arranged the whole composition with birthday sentiment and a very thin satin ribbons.
Finished it off with some sequins! These tiny things make me happy, you know when you finally use something you spent money on at one point!

Hope you enjoyed this creation!
