Christmas Tea!

Hello everyone!

Happy Monday!

What could be cosier than a warm and festive cuppa?

I just love the design of this fancy teacup die with so many little details from Trinity Stamps!

I started by blending my background at the top and bottom using DI.

I die cut the two sets of cups in the traditional Christmas red and green colours. I love these striped PP in festive colours.

Then I dry embossed the shape of teacups on a piece of white CS and fussy cut it. Adhered these pieces to the embossed cups.

I added some crystal drops as snowfall over the top to make them nice and shiny.

I stamped some flurry of snowflakes around the cups and added the sentiment.

How fun this set be to make invitations and favours for a Christmas Tea!

Happy crafting!

Sunshine Blast card and an announcement!

Hello everyone!

Happy Monday!

I am so excited with an announcement as I am one of the Trinity Brand Ambassadors, Happy dance!!!

I received a Stand Alone Centre Burst die along with a freebie Teacup die as an order.

The Center Burst die is just Fabulous and can be used with many variations! You can use any color cardstocks or designer paper or any technique to make a stunning card.

 I think the Center burst die is so easy to get those perfect rays! 

I am showcasing this fab die in a unique way to use!

I cut out the Center Burst die out of Pearlescent Cream and black color CS. Then I take out the sunrays part and heat embossed them with Blue Pearl EP. 

Look at the difference on both white and black CS  using an awesome embossed pearly look on the pieces of these sun rays.

I used the sunburst outlined part and popped it up on my card base. Adhered all the heat embossed sunrays pieces in the negative space as shown in the pic.

I heat embossed the sentiment too and fussy cut it. I really like the way this sentiment looks on the base of the Burst die.

I embellished it with some bubble blow Out mixatives and it looks like snowfall in the sky.

Well, that is all for me today!

Happy crafting!

happy purr-day!

Hello friends!

Happy Saturday!

Today is the last day of Cat Lovers Hop 2021 and I am showcasing a cute Purr-thday card for the loved one!

I think the cat looks adorable out of PP. Also wanted to try using some strings stitched through the holes! Isn't it so fun!

Firstly I stamped the cat image on a dotted PP and fussy cut it.

On a stitched holes rectangle white panel I stitched a crisis cross pattern using pink double shaded embroidery floss. On a thinking cloud, stamped a birthday cup and watecolored it.

I heat embossed the sentiment on a fishtail strip of black CS using Wow EP. I grounded the sentiment with a strip of multicoloured zig-zag stripes PP.

Created a snowfall background at the top. As an embellishment, I added a flower sequin to the cat head and a tiny golden heart to the black strip.
I can just imagine this cute cat sitting on strings and the dream she gets into ........ and enjoying snowflakes on her birthday!!

Love You To The Moon And back!

Hello everyone!

Happy Friday!

I am back with my latest project for Cat Lovers Hop 2021.

Today I decided on one of my new faves die along with a jumping cat on the moon, so much fun!

I made this card for a feline friend, she is a stargazer too and always dream to go to the moon. 

Here we gooooo.......

I started playing with brusho magic by sprinkling some water to create my sky background.

Then added some stars using a star stencil and sparkling paste.

The delicate moon along with a sentiment is so perfect for this background, I die cut it from a white foam sheet and once from a holographic sheet. Added this to my focal point along with a cute Christmas cat. I added a tiny muffler, a hat and a tiny heart to the cat with dimension.

I think this is totally paw-some!
Happy crafting!

Now filled some of the dotted shakers in two colors, placed my cats and placed a transparent sheet on it and adhered my holographic panel on it.

This is just the right time to make cards for any celebrations, festive occasions!

I made a birthday card with autumn colors in traditional style to show this beautiful Mehendi Mandala design from Uniko. I just use the biggest design from the set.

It is just so relaxing to sit and color the design!

Yay! I am the winner!

I started by creating a background using dye inks on a white panel and added a red layered CS underneath it.

Now stamped the Mehendi Mandala image two times on a scrap of a white sheet, watercolored both, fussy cut it. And take out the centre circle only using a circle die from the other one as shown in the pic.

Now adhered that panel to my base card with my watercolored Mehendi design. Added the Celebrate sentiment.

Love the dimension and bright colors on it! Hope you like it!

Poppy flowers Pop-up card!

 Hello to everyone!

Happy Monday!

This is a pop-up card with an autumn colour feel on it. I love to experiment with my work and for the first time tried the pop-up elements inside with simple cutting and creases.

I started with an A4 white CS and created the creases in between as shown in the below pic. Now fold it on the creases.

Now stamp the layering poppies using Altenew inks and the last layer I heat embossed in silver sparkle EP.

Die-cut a cross-stitched oval frame shape out of a snippet of silver Mirror CS. And blended the outer space using DI, I used my oval die for blending the colour and added some white splatters.

Now hand-drawn some flowers and watercolored them. Using an embossing pen I created some silver sparkle outlines and details to the bunch to match with my poppy flowers. And placed that die cut oval on it. 

Die-cut a hug sentiment our of a snippet of silver mirror CS and placed it.

Now here comes the inside part.
I started by stamping Poppy flowers with a heat embossing layer. And created a watercolored background using my ZIG brushes with a hand-drawn butterfly.

Now my inside part is completed with a bunch of flowers in autumn colors.

I applied DI all over the edges and heat embossed the sentiment in silver sparkle EP. Created a silver sparkle outline using an embossing pen and some splatters.

Now how I popped up and gave cuts to my design shown in the below pic with some creases and added a silver mirror sheet to the other side. 

Here are some close-ups.

I enjoyed making this pop-up card. Hope you all like it!
