Thankful for you!

Hello friends!

Happy Thanksgiving Day all around the World!

Joy to the world

 Hello everyone!

Happy Thursday!

For this card, I make a cute shaker with a fun deer with Christmas lights around him.

I started with that cute deer image and watercolored only light parts, ears and stags. Fussy cut it.

I die cut holly foliage and watercolored it.

Die-cut a window blind panel out of a white sheet and once from a pastel green glitter sheet. Inserted all the green stripes by taking white die strips.

Here is the pic:

Then I created a shaker panel, stamped the sentiment inside in green, added some fun shaker stars.

Added some glossy accents to the berries and lights for more interest.

I truly enjoyed making it with so much fun!

Happy Monday!

Today I am sharing a card using the newly launched cute set "Holly Jolly". Such a fun set for Christmas!

I also used the Ultra smooth stamping cardstock which is just perfect for stamping and coloring or using any techniques.

There are cute and fun images of deer and I used this one from the set. I watercolored it with my ZIG brushes.

Fussy cut the image and added some details with a white gel pen.

I die cut a Checkered screen panel in white and placed it on a red scrap sheet. Added one more little strip of red CS. Adhered my deer image with dimension.

On a white strip stamped the sentiment in red. Accented it with some rhinestones.

That's it, super clean, cute and simple.

Warm Winter Cuppa!

 Hello to all!

Happy Thursday!

For the last few days I caught with Viral fever, cough and cold....... feeling better now, so working on some Coffee Lovers Hop projects!

So here is my project.......  The first time I saw these mittens I thought" they just belong around a mug of hot cocoa!" Just makes you want to brew up a cup, doesn't it?

On this card, I just combined dry embossed  Christmas snowflakes as a backdrop for this warm cuppa of cocoa.

The delightful cup is stamped in DI with a beautiful floral design in the traditional color combo. Then fussy cut it.

Real red die-cut mittens with details on them hold this cup of cocoa for a cozy feel.

Added a die-cut sentiment in red and accented it with some poinsettia sequins in red.
These darling mittens deserve a Hot cup of tea!

Cardstocks: Snippets of Whisper White and deep red CS
Stamp: I love Tea set from Uniko
Stencil: snowflakes from hndmd

Slimline shimmery coffee card!

Hello to all!

Happy Sunday!

A fun project playing with alcohol inks technique for this beautiful centre burst die and teacup die!

I have a pretty Trinity Stamps Ambassador Inspiration Project on my Blog this morning featuring a fun Teacup die with every order! I have created a slimline shimmery card!

On a scrap of silver color glitter sheet, I applied some alcohol inks.  I blend them with alcohol ink solution and the magic begins. It turns out so well love the results!

Using centre burst die I separated the sunrays pieces.

Now on a slimline card base, I added those alcohol inked parts and some holographic pieces to use the same die.

Die-cut a teacup die from a scrap of white CS, holographic sheet and alcohol inked pieces. The heart is from a vellum sheet. 

Now placed my heart on the center of the sunrays. Adhered the teacup pieces on it. Stamped the sentiment on a banner.

Embellished it with some Fortune Teller mixatives, isn't it so pretty!

Happy crafting!

On a white card base added a metallic pearl blue rectangle and added that geometric dies to it. Now stamped the sentiment in blue. Added all those coffee cups and a teapot with dimension.

There's always time for tea!

Hello to all!

Happy Friday!

I am so excited as the fun has already begun at Winter Fall / Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2021 hosted by Talented Amy and the team!

Each morning I started my day with a cup of ginger masala tea. I love waking up in the morning and sitting down with a hot cup of tea before beginning my day!

When I saw this stamp set from Uniko I recently added ut into my stash. My mind started imagining all the possibilities with this set and couldn't wait to use it!

This is the first card that I made for this coffee lovers hop. I love the colors and artistic look I used on this card.

I made different patterns on my cups. I started by stamping the three-cup in all and heat embossing using opaque bright white EP. Fussy cut them all On the first one I added some DO ink and added some pattern with a sentiment, heat embossed in metallic gold.

On the second cup I applied some acrylic chalk paints with my palette knife and added a heat embossed heart in white.

And on the third one, I applied some DO ink and added some splatters using a stencil.

Now on my focal panel I slightly added some stripes in very fade pink ink.

And added that panel to my card base adhered all the stacks of cups with dimension.

I stacked the cups. added some hearts and finished off with placing a die-cut border before placing the cups.
I think it's time for another cuppa tea. I will be posting a couple more cards from this set in the next few days.
I am hoping these artistic cups have cool look and brighten your day and inspire your creativity today!

Happy crafting!
