Sunshine Birthday!


Happy Friday!

I was unwell for the last 5 days due to a Migraine attack, now feeling alright.

Today I want to spread a bit of sunshine and some smiles to brighten anyone day.........!

I am showcasing a watering can with the flowers. I die cut a white panel with stitched borders and ink blended it from the centre. 

Then I masked my one-third part using masking tape and blended three shades of yellow.

 I watercoloured my watering can and uncoloured the flowers. Coloured the leaves and stem part only. Die-cut one more time a watering can and separate the part of the flower only. Adhered the flowers on my watering can for more dimension and added some crystal clear drops on white petals only.

My sentiment is from the Daffodil set. Die-cut a lace border and adhered it on the yellow blended part for more interest. Foam tape is used and adhered to my watering can on the lace border.

Here is the inside view:

I hope you enjoyed today's project!

Tea cup with Happy Succulents!


Happy weekend!

I made a slimline card using my envelope die! 

I featured a teacup with Happy succulents. The stamp set has a main succulent image with few additional succulents which make this set so versatile and fill the bigger space easily.

On a teacup, I stamped one of the single succulents with foliage using my ZIG brushes directly and watercolored it. Then stamped the bigger image using the same method, watercolored it and fussy cut it.

Now die cut another panel using stitched scalloped dies and stamped the image.  Then I slightly added DO with a blender brush to make my own background. The sentiment is from the Verve stamp set. Added some scattered polka dots with sparkle paste using my stencil.

Added my main panel on the card base. Added the die cup with dimension for more interest above the big succulent image.

Hope you like it!

Sunshine coffee cup

 Hello everyone!

Hello, coffee lovers!

Today is the first day of Spring/ Summer Coffee Lovers Hop 2021 hosted by the very talented Amy & team and I am so excited to participate! There are lots of super sponsor prizes, how awesome!

I am sharing a card featuring a negative die cutting technique using a Coffee time die cut set from Sizzix and stamps from Stamplorations.

I am thinking of a rising sun, bright morning with a spring feel. So I came up with this idea!

Who doesn't love coffee cup especially with sunshine on them!

I die cut the coffee cup at my focal point. And blended some DI to create a bright background in happy sunrise colours. Then stamped the great quote "even the darkest night will end and the SUN will rise." I love the New Beginning set with charming images and sweet inspiring sentiments.

On my white card base panel, I stamped the morning sunrise scene and watercoloured it using Zig watercolour brushes. Then highlighted the sunrise part only applying crystal Nuvo drops to glow more. Then adhered the blended piece on the card panel with foam tape.

Added a white lid on the coffee cup by stamping hello coffee. Die-cut some grasses and added these strips. Embellished it with some spring flowers and some crystal drops with few birds stamping to make this card pop.

I love this cute sunshine cup!

Happy crafting!

Spread happiness wherever you go!

 Hello everyone!

I made a card for celebrating International Women's Day!

It's a one layer card! I love this adorable swing girl and created a little scene for her!

Through my message on this card, I want to encourage all people in this world!

A very simple way to spread more happiness in your own little world is through kindness. It's often an easy and quick thing you can do as you move through your daily life. But we sometimes forget about it. Or don't remember how it can help us all.

People are often unaware of the positive things they do or they minimize them in their own minds.

So help them to see themselves in a more positive light and to improve their own self-esteem. It definitely brightens any one day! One of the greatest tool ever!

I started by stamping a swing girl image on a piece of white CS, I watercolored her using ZIG markers and fussy cut it. Remember to apply the black marker all around the image after fussy cutting.

I don't have any cloud stencil, so made my own puffy clouds stencil and got some amazing results! I added some splatters of white chalk paint on the clouds.
And created a grassy ground using DI, using a blender and a stencil.

 The message is "Spread Happiness wherever you go, so perfect for the scene.

So I wish Kepp spreading the same aura and Happiness wherever you go! There is then this feeling of joy, excitement and the wish for more, and plain enjoyment of the moment, the kind that makes people happy and look forward to more of the same!

Have a wonderful day!
Happy crafting!

Beautiful Animal World!


Happy Friday!

Oh! Just look! who came to visit here?

How do you like the crisp striped background on this card with uncolored images?

Isn't amazing! I inspired by Yana Samkula card here.

I created a color block background using cardstock in two colors only. I cut the strips and adhered them to my card base. 

I stamped the different animal images in one go using my Misti, which made work so easy. I added an alligator at the left bottom corner and a branch of a tree for my hanging monkey at the top corner.

Heat embossed my sentiment in bright white and popped up it in the centre of the card.

 For more fun and interest I added googly eyes to each animal, Added some tiny dots to each animal using a white gel pen and black liner pen. Finished it off with a die-cut grass border along with a jute string! So much fun and perfect for kids!

Hope you enjoyed it!

Happy crafting!

Hello beautiful!

 Hi to all!

Happy Thursday!

Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful....... by Sophia Loren!

The most precious gift of God to this planet is a woman. She is the pivot source of love in every way! 

She can get her love in the form of a Sister, Mother, Beloved Wife, Daughter, Grandmother. So respect each and every woman in the world and let's make a peaceful world beyond the imagination. Her grace, warmth & cheerful nature is an inspiration to me! 

So here is my creation! She has a desire to enjoy life and spreading seeds of flowers with her smile.

I love this cool feminine fun stencil, made me think about how to use it beautifully with cute eyelashes and hairlines. I left her uncolored.  I had fun with watercoloring with some floral images.
 I presented my beautiful lady with nature blossoms and her strength too, showing the empowerment of women!

I started with a folied dotted PP and applying colors through the stencil.
And watercolored a flower strip too using my ZIG brushes.

Then stamped a cute birdie and watercolored it, fussy cut it who is chirping with Hello Beautiful sentiment, says all!

I die cut some flowers in the red and metallic gold sheet and added them to her crown.  Added eye shadow and color her lips with charming red!
