card set- Mini blossoms


I promise this is the last post for today! :P

Here is a card set I made for Altenew's Mach Challenge. The colours really inspired me to make these cards.

Here is the inspiration picture... The hearts in the picture made me use them on my cards.

This card is the first one I made of three.

I took a 4.25''x 5.5'' piece of 110lb Neenah Solar white card stock and stamped the images from Altenew's Mini blossom set randomly using Altenew Coral berry ink and Hero Arts Raspberry jam and field greens.

Added coloured pencil highlights to add interest to the solid images.

Using SSS Stitched rectangle dies cut out a panel and a frame (that I used on the next card). Adhered the panel on a A2 size top folding card. 

I then stamped the sentiment, trimmed it down, added some gold silk thread behind the sentiment on a die cut vellum heart. The vellum helped the sentiment to make the sentiment stand out from the busy background.

I went over the vellum with Wink of Stella brush. This isn't my original idea. I saw it on You tube. Unfortunately I don't remember where I saw it. If I come across it again, I will link to the video.

Look how shimmery the vellum looks?! :) Love it!

The second card is my favorite of the lot. I love the stamping and the frame on this one. I made a mask. You can find it and also one more card that's similar HERE.

I added the frame from my previous card. 

The sentiment is from Label Love stamp set. The vellum here also has Wink of Stella on it. :) 

I wanted the third card to be a shaker card but OH MY GOD!!! I completely messed it up. See the scanty use of sequins? I'm never ever going to do this again. I wish I had added lot more sequins.  To cover it up I added some thread behind the sentiment :D

I hope you like this set of cards.

Thanks for visiting!

take care.

It's me again! I'm so sorry I'm going to spam your dashboard today! :D

The card here is for A Blog Named Hero Challenge. The theme is rainbow! I'm not good at using rainbow colors on my card but I tried. :)

For the background I used CAS-ual fridays stamp set and repeatedly stamped the vines. Colored them with Zig markers in rainbow colours. To make the sentiment stand out, heat embossed a sentiment from Hero Arts 'Acts of Kindness' stamp set. It's a gorgeous stamp set and I know I'm going to use it a lot.

I hope you like the card...

Have a nice day. :)

Hi everyone!

I hope you are doing good. I'm here to share some cards that I made recently.

The first one is for 'Paru's Card making challenges'.

To make this card, I cut out a heart from an acetate using a heart die and used the negative piece as a mask for my card.I stamped all the images in different colours.

Here's the mask I used.

The stamp set is called 'Mini Blossoms' from Altenew. 

I stamped the same images to make a border for my card. After that was done, added some coloured pencil highlights using my Prisma Coloured pencils.

Stamped sentiment on a piece of white cardstock, trimmed it down and layered it on a small piece of vellum to make it stand out from the busy background. I went over the vellum with clear wink of stella and you could see the result in the below image. I love the shimmery vellum! Randomly went over the flowers with wink of stella to add a bit of sparkle. Also added clear sparkling sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish the card.

Thanks for dropping by!

Hero Arts Fabulous flowers challenge

hey...It's me again... :)

I'm here to post some cards I made for Hero Arts 'Fabulous flowers Challenge'

I made some cards with the help of my MISTI using the Hero Arts old stamp 'Blossom Art' stamp set and their new 'Acts of kindness' and Altenew's newest 'mini blossoms' stamp set.

With the help of MISTI I positioned the images and stamped on all the card and later added details on the solid images for more interest.

The layering paper was also from Hero Arts but I couldn't find it on their website...Guess it has been discontinued.

Hope you like these.
Have a great day!


Winnie and walter's challenges

Hi everyone!

A super quick post to submit cards I made recently to submit to some awesome challenges...

The first is for Winnie and Walter.

I made 3 cards to enter three challenges for Winnie and Walter's 2nd birthday challenges.

First is for Vanessa's Rainbow challenge. I made a small video for this card and I hope to post it soon...both the pattern on the background and the rainbow panel were made with zig markers.

The die cut is from  'The big, the bold and the happy' cutaways

The next card is for Heather's water colouring and gold challenge.

I water washed some colours in the background, stamped the image on vellum, fussy cut it and pasted on the water coloured panel. I die cut the 'happy' from 'The big, the bold and the happy' cutaways from a gold mirror cardstock, I also stamped smaller images from the same stamp set the image was from- 'Picture Perfect'

The last card is for Lydia's floral challenge... and Gayatri's 'Create your own background' challenge.

I stamped repeatedly images from Winnie and Walter's Bang Flurries stamp set an also from 'Big Bang Bling.'

Heat embossed the sentiment from Altenew and put some gold string behind the sentiment label.

That is all for today... thanks for stopping by.. :)
