Ombre glittered Gerbera in shades of pink!

 Hello everyone!

Happy Sunday!

Have you got lots of embossing glitters in your stash but ensure how to use it I have a technique for using glitter in ombre style look to make your card shiny and sparkly, so let's get started!

I am showcasing Gerbera's stencilled flower. It features gorgeous details and fine lines. The generously-sized flower allows you for an abundance of techniques whether it is water coloring, ink blending, heat embossing to make different patterns always!

Happy to share:  In Top picks here:

I started off with my Gerbera stencil on a white panel and applied clear embossing ink using my dauber. Covered the embossed ink design using 3 different embossing glitters as shown in the below pic:

Now heat embossed that panel, love the results.

The sentiment is from the Happy Succulents stamp set. Now added some Mixed Media die dots at the top right corner for some textures.
Die-cut a bold shine sentiment 2 times and adhered the glittery pink on the white one for the shadow look. Placed that die cut sentiment.

Tried to showcase from different angles!
Adhered that panel on a snippet of dark pink glittered sheet and then my card base.
I made this card for my daughter's friend to make her day more special with some shine as she loves sparkles!
Wishing you all a lovely day!

You are so cool

Hello to all!

Happy Saturday!

With this adorable snowman ornament, I almost don't mind the thought of snow, how about you?

I die cut this snowman ornament 2 times, one using white CS and another one using the double-sided adhesive sheet.
 I removed the snowman parts out of white CS ornament and distressed it with tumbled glass and stormy sky inks using lots of water as shown in the below pic.

I die cut a pierced squared panel in white. And using a snowfall stencil I applied white textured paste and quickly sprinkled some diamond dust on it for a sparkling snow effect.

Added a dotted holographic panel on my white card base and adhered my pierced panel on it with a snowman ornament, added a silver string with you are so cool sentiment and a tiny heart.

Hoping you enjoyed the process of it.

Happy crafting!

Green branches with Meadow Butterfly!

 Hello everyone!

Happy Tuesday!

I am very much inspired by green with some insects at Let's Squash it and dusted off my old embossing folder!

And here is my Today's card!

I started by blending some DI using different shades of green and added some water splatters on it.

Wham Bam!!! Can you see how I changed it?
I embossed this panel using my branches EF. Then lightly rub the Opaque bright white ink across the embossed part only. Tada done!

I used meadow butterfly as my insect and die cut 2 times out of a scrap of white CS. And colored the flowers and branches only using my ZIGs. 

I die cut 3 times dotted rectangles and placed a vellum sheet in between my rectangles to visible the embossed background through this panel. Die-cut hello word 3 times in green sheet. Now adhered that rectangle panel with my butterfly and sentiment on an embossed panel and adhered it to my base card panel.

Inspire, create and share, that's what I  love to do!
Happy crafting!

Beautiful Blooms III meet Dot Coloring Technique

 Hello to all!

Happy Friday!

Uniko stamps are celebrating their 10th Birthday this whole month. 

And Today I am CASEing one of the cards by its owner and talented designer Beverley Brown using the Dot coloring technique inspired by such an amazing crafter Jennifer Mcguire!

So here is my card for Today.......

I love this technique from my old days as I played this fun technique on my school projects. 
The touching of different alcohol markers using dots without any coloring made it so unique around the stamped florals.
Here is Bev's card I CASE'd. I was inspired by her rainbow color palette around the image. You can visit her page here.

I started by die cutting a double stitched panel and stamped the outlined florals first using my Misti in Jet black ink. Then stamped the detailing inside using blue, yellow, pink, red, green as my color palette.

 Then added dots around the outlined images and on detailing lines inside using various alcohol markers, this makes the image pop.

Stippling with alcohol markers is very relaxing and easy to do with results that I think are pretty pleasing. You can see the stipples in different colors that radiate out to thinner consistency then fade into white. The sentiment is from another set and I fussy cut and popped it using foam tape.
A close-up view:

Lots of good crafting vibes are headed your way!

Cardstock: Whisper White CS
Stamps: Beautiful Blooms III and You are, Yes You stamp sets from Uniko

 I just love all the elements and details of this card!

(IMP: I posted it today only and I can't able to revert the date, hope u all understand)

I  started with stamping the beautiful blooms and heat embossed in rich Gold pale EP. I colored them with my Chameleon Markers, fussy cut both.

Now created my own background panel to match the colors with my flowers using Gelli plate, brayer, DO and a scattered polka dot stencil.

Now die cuts some foliage, leaves and watercolored them too using my ZIG brushes. Die-cut a focal panel in white using some double stitched circles. I applied copper glitter paste using the same polka dot stencil which is peeking behind from the 3 circles. And arranged them all along with a copper thread underneath the flowers..

Stamped the sentiment on a black strip and heat embossed it in white. Added a tiny vellum butterfly. Embellished it with some sequins and added a strip of printed polka dot vellum sheet too.

I hope you have a wonderful day!
