Happy Saturday!

Today sharing an art Journal page with a butterfly theme!

Stamped the rosebush image using distress inks.

Die cut a broken diamond die and added to the journal page, Applied gesso all over and inked it with a blue wax  pen and DO.

Die cut some ornate frames and added those layers as shown in the below pic. Fussy cut some butterfly print memo sheets and added some blue and pink mesh.

I just want to squeeze you!

 Hello everyone!

Happy Wednesday!

Today, I am featuring a lemonade card with a foliage background and an Organically Zesty stamp set to brighten your day!

First I created a foliage background inking with Versafine Onyx black color and heat embossed quickly before drying it using Clear EP. Then slightly blend the crushed olive DO and for the leaves rustic wilderness DO. And added some water splatters and soak the water with a baby wipe.

I stamped a lemon image on a white sheet and colored it with Distress oxides. Fussy cut the image. Before adhering the background panel I distressed the edges all around using DO and the card base too. 

Added some splatters on the lemon image slightly. Then added the sentiment from the same set and popped up the image using double foam tape. 

Hope you are inspired by it!

Happy crafting!

MAY/JUNE Mini Reveal, Release and Blog Hop day with a giveaway at Uniko!

 Hello everyone!

Finally, Today is a release day with such fabulous products this time at Uniko!

I am so excited to showcase my cards using this new release with a unique concept that can be used in many ways!!

The newest Stencil: Flower Power #4 with heart-shaped petals in between made it so pretty, even it can be combined with the outline flower image with the Flower Power #4 clear stamp set!

The second one is the Bauhaus Blocks Clear Stamp set, featuring 5 blocks with sentiments and perfect for a Masculine card!

And the last one is Layering Bauhaus Blocks Builder having 3 layers. It is so versatile and easy to create with your own imagination and designs! You can create some unique patterns, CAS style even some complex geometric designs too with masking techniques!!

Assembled stencil design:

And time for some inspiration now.

Card 1

I combined the Flower Power stencil #4 with Nature Treasures die set and love the final outcome! Here are the steps of the masking technique and how I created this!

I used distressed inks and oxides for my color combination with a soft color palette.

And even added double hearts petals only with some dots for my flower Mandala and added some vellum leaves with a sentiment on a circle and voila done!

Card 2

The second one is using Bauhaus Blocks stamp set

For this, I removed only the sentiments and kept all the blocks for my card design, heat embossed it with Wow metallic rich Gold pale EP and watercolored the blocks using ZIG water brushes. And added the sentiment from the same set and adhered this panel to my card base.

Card 3

The next is using Layering Bauhaus Blocks Builder stencil. By using these stencils you can create so many graphic designs too!!

I used DO inks here and overlayed all 3 stencils one by one here. And added the sentiment from the same set, love the modern style font.

Card 4

This one is my favourite one and I love the final result I have achieved.
You can see the versatility of this stencil using only one layer of the stencils. 
Love the modern graphic look, isn't it!!

I made a grid first with my pencil as shown in the below pic.

Now masked my stencil to achieve my imagination for the bird patterns. I inked my grids with DO inks.

See the outcome. I added bird legs with watercolor brush, added a dot for the eyes and at the top created a sun. Finally finished it with a sentiment from Yes you, You are clear stamp set.

Don't you excited to create yours now.........!!! 
I am sure you are.......hurry and purchase yours before out of stock!
