Floral image with grid!

Happy Monday!

A fun theme card in bright colors!

Took a piece of white Textured paper and started drawing lines with the help of a ruler first vertically using watercolor crayons directly. The crayons have some shimmer also, you can see in the pic.

 Blended these lines with water brush and then Horizontally and blended these lines too! Left it for dry.

Stamped the image along with the grid, started the coloring accordingly to the grid image color.

But I was not satisfied with the result because of the texture on the sheet. So I stamped the image on another watercolor sheet.

Watercolored it and fussy cut it. Don't forget to apply a black marker all around the image. Now adhered that image on that colored image, love the result!
 Stamped the sentiment at the top and some silhouette images at the bottom of the sheet.

A close-up:

 Die-cut a scalloped frame and created a border.
Hope you liked it!

Stamps: Poppy Poem from penny Black;(I used sentiment here) Lotus blossom stamp set from Stampin Up!, CS-4001(silhouette images) from Itsy Bitsy stamp

Tropical Theme DIY decor!

Hello everyone!
Happy Saturday!

 I am on Itsy Bitsy blog with my DT inspiration!
This time I decided to make a coaster using paint pouring on a mini canvas. I'm obsessed with paint pouring and could spend too much time on it! This technique is very versatile and the different creations are so mesmerizing and you can gift them as well.

Trying this for coasters is also the perfect way to paint pouring since it's on a smaller scale and easier to manage especially for beginners. I always like to create stuff that has a purpose.

Firstly I mixed up my paints in cups. Here I used pineapple crush, cherry tomato, pearl white with pouring medium into 1:1 ratio.

On my mini canvas, first I spread pearl white all around the coaster and in the middle spread pineapple crush and cherry tomato and let the magic begin. I spread the color with my palette knife. Let it dry in a level space. I am surprised that it settled within 2 hours!

In the meantime, I stamped some tropical images from Tropical Birthday stamp set on a fleece white sheet and watercolored them. Then I fussy cut all the images.

Added these images in a bottom corner with some handmade flowers.

 Now at the bottom, I added a layer of Mixed media stones for more texture. 

I applied some sparkle paste too. Let it dry for some time.

I sprinkled some fairy dust all over the canvas. Applied a thick coat of clear resin with a hardener in the equal ratio. Let it dry.

You can add a piece of felt to the bottom of the coaster to give it finish.
This cute coaster is sure to add a tropical feel to your home.
What do you think? Would you make this easy coaster?

Walking in the forest!

Hello friends!

My DT post for the inspiration at Cut it up challenges where the theme is into the woods!
The summer seems to be on its way back though it seems that we still have nice days this weekend.
Yet you notice that autumn has arrived.

That's why I made an autumn card depicting a scene of walking in the forest with woods, deer and falling leaves!
The deer die is one of my favourites!

The falling rows of birch trees into the woodland, mother nature with falling leaves everywhere with a pair of deer, isn't this amazing seems to really fall in black and white with Kraft.

The Designer Paper in the background and a dazzling frame!

 I stamped a bird too on a stitched circle and adhered over my pom-pom lace with a woolly button.

I am curious what do you think of this card!

Poppies in a frame!


Good Monday to you! I have a flower card to share with you today........!
This is one of my favorite and famous prim poppy die cut from Memory box. 
This is so glamorous!

I had a vision of what I wanted to do, so I went through some of my premade alcohol ink background scraps, I created. You can't just make one you just keep creating and creating until your literally out of Yupo paper, so addictive!
I pulled out my red and gold mixative base background and die cut these glamorous pair of poppies and colored the thin stems in green.

Now started with my card base which is in square shape and die cut some dual stitched circle frames out of another 4 white squared panels from the centre to make dimensional circular frames.
Then I made the upper part to match with my poppies using the same alcohol inks randomly, it was so much fun to play again!
Now placed my poppied in the circular frames with a little dimension using foam dots.

Die cut Happy Birthday sentiment and heat embossed it in gold and popped it up.
Added some gold alcohol ink dots for more texture and interest using a thin pointed brush.

Super fun dies to create with! Hope you're enjoying your card making supplies too!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it!

Hello friends!

Once again back with another Typography creation!
This time a simple CAS card focusing on the sentiment!

White space doesn't have to be white....... it just needs to be a clear area!

So here it is!

I only wanted to focus on the sentiment, so I considered a bright, bold color for my base card like yellow! They bring a feeling of excitement and create a lasting impact.
I chose a large type of sentiment and kept other elements like props and accents, to a minimum as not to distract from the messaging!

For showcasing the sentiment I stamped it on a clear plastic sheet and highlighted on black background with a yellow color base card combo.

I love the contrasting combo on it!

Cardstocks: Chrome yellow and black CS
OHP sheet: Transparent sheet from Itsy bitsy
Stamp: Typografia Romantique from Stamplorations
Dies: Crazy Double running stitch rectangles from Cutplorations
Staz on Ink: Opaque cotton white

Beauty is a joy

Hello to all!
Happy Tuesday!

Time for another challenge at LIM and the theme is Typography!

For today's card, I used Beauty is a joy for my Typography element and combined it with one of the images from the New beginning stamp set.
A simple text overlayed on the image!

I die cut a white panel using double stitched rectangles and stamped the image. Colored it using ZIG real brushes. Placed the panel on my card base and stamped the typography sentiment.

I did a little doodling in the banner and highlighted the word beauty with my black pen and did some false stitching at all around the card base panel. Now adhered the image using foam dots.

Hoping you like it!

Supply list
Cardstock: Heavy white CS
Stamps: Beauty is a joy  from Unity; New Beginnings from Stamplrations
Dies: Crazy double running stitch rectangles from Cutplorations

Die-cut an embossed sheet an adhered in the centre of the white card panel with an awesome word. Now placed my circle panel on it.

Golden moment!

Hello friends!

I made a quick card using metallic gold as my inspiration. Combined with polka dots, black and gold really make for a timeless look!

I left the top open with white space and add stencilling with gold glitz sparkle for a metallic look.
Then stamped some arrows and sentiment This is the Life. Die-cut Wow moment two times once from metallic gold sheet and one from the black sheet and adhered the moment word on the metallic one. Die-cut an arrow for showing the happy moments through bubbles!
