I have five cards for you today. The first three cards use the same stamp set "Folk Garden 2" This truly has so many possibilities :)
For the first card I used the
Folk Garden 2 stamp along with the Folk Garden 2 layering Stencils and the Folk Garden 2 dies, Brushed Sentiments hot foil plate, dies.

Stamp the image, add color using the layering stencils. I used Candy Apple, Berrylicious, Sparkling Rose, Bubble Gum, Clementine, Yellows and Brown. Die-cut using the coordinating dies. Take a dark red cardbase and sponge some berrylicious ink to the edges. Adhere the images to the card using 3d foam towards the edges. Flick gold paint. Foil the sentiment using the hot foil plate with Spellbinders glimmer machine and gold matt foil. Die-cut using the dies. Die-cut one more piece using pink cardstock. Adhere behind the foiled sentiment, slightly offset. Adhere to the card.

For the 2nd. card, I used a peach cardstock and used the Folk Garden 2 foil plate. I then foiled the image using pink foil. Add white pigment ink through the Folk Garden 2 layering Stencils, let dry. Now add color using the passion fruit, clementine, yellow, candy apple, meadow, evergreen inks. Die-cut the image using the Folk Garden 2 dies. Adhere the images to a white card layer. Add dimension to the leaves and florals by simply shaping them a bit.

Stamp the sentiment from the Daisy Slimline stamp and adhere to the card.

Next, I went with no line watercolor look using the same
Folk Garden 2 stamp.Stamp the image using Peach fuzz ink, Color using zig brush markers. Die-cut the image using the Folk Garden 2 dies.
Take a watercolor layer, apply crackle paste to it through the
Leafy Squares stencil. Let dry. Add watercolor in pink. Add some flicks of pink and gold. Adhere the image to the layer using 3D foam. Die-cut a frame using the Slim Stitched Scalloped Rectangles. Adhere behind the mat layer. Adhere this to the card.
Foil the sentiment using gold matt foil, die-cut. Now backing it with a vellum circle, adhere to the card.

To finish, add some iridescent crystals from Studio Katia.

For the next card, I used the Darling Dahlias stamp set and the coordinating Layering Stencils. What I like about the stencils is the it can cover the images so I could add color to the background too. Easy Flick white paint.

I used inks in Sky Blue, Seaside, Storm, Bubble Gum, Raspberry Bliss, Meadow to add color to the image. Now, I used the layering Stencil from the Brushed Sentiments...Oh! I love the effect so much. Die-cut using the coordinating dies

Die-cut the scalloped using slimline scalloped rectangle, adhere vellum behind it. Add the sentiment using 3d foam and backed with white floss

Hello everyone!

(click to shop)

It's release time at Pigment Craft Co. and I'm super excited to be joining one of my favorite companies for their November Release Instagram Hop. This holiday release is AH-mazing and you're going to enjoy all of the new products. They are introducing GORGEOUS new ink colors too, which are perfect for holidays :)

I made two cards and two gift tags/toppers for this release, combining several sets on each project. I also used some of their inks and was sold on these inks and you won't be disappointed either.

My first card is a CAS shaker card. I love making flat shaker cards and this small set Ribbons and Wreaths stamps and dies are perfect. I love the cute and whimsical bow form this set too. The word "For You" is from the For You stamp and dies. I stamped the leaves cluster using Pigment inks in Fir, Sage, Eucalyptus and Jade. I stamped the bow using the Glow and Quince inks.
I also used the pastel rainbow confetti and chunky glitter by studio Katia for the shaker.

 Next I have two tags/ toppers. I used the Wrap It Up Toppings stamp and 2 coordinating dies. 

I used the die for  the tag 1. Stamp the background using Pattern Builder: Gingham and Sage ink. I then stamped the Modern Poinsettia using various inks, die-cut using coordinating dies. Adhere to the tag. I added layers using a doily. Stamp the sentiment from the Festive Words Stamp and Dies.

For tag 2, I used the same base tag as the first tag and stamped the gingham pattern. I then stamped the "For You" in an ombre from the For You Stamp set. Die-cut using a circle die. Adhere it to a green die-cut tag. Stamp the big bloom from the Jumbo Botanicals: Winter Bloom and die-cut using the coordinating die. I used the leaf by stamping the Modern Poinsettia stamp and dies. 

Next I have a card using the floral from the  Jumbo Botanicals: Winter Bloom using various inks. Die-cut using the coordinating dies. I stamped the Modern Poinsettia image too, die-cut using the die and the fussy cut the various elements to create a floral cluster on the card.

 For the sentiment I used the Festive Words Stamps and dies. I stamped the word "HAPPY" onto vellum and embossed it using Alexandry Renke Ulla's Cognac embossing powder.

Assemble the cluster, and add some confetti as accent.

Heffy Doodle - Interactive Double Slider Card

Hello everyone!! I am on Heffy Doodle blog and today, I am sharing a fun and cute interactive card using some of the new release products. I love this cute double slider mechanism for creating that surprise element 

To start, I sponged a white cardbase using tumbled glass distress ink. I then cut a white panel and sponge tumbled glass ink to create the sky. I then applied embossing paste through the Falling Leaves stencil. Let dry and sponge spiced marmalade, scattered straw distress oxide inks.

Die-cut the tree trunk and the greenery from the Tree-mendous Peekaboo die. Sponge distress inks to the elements, adhere to the card and the panel.

Stamp the images, color using copic markers and die-cut using coordinating dies.

Deer, tree stump, mushrooms, flowers – Deer To Me stamp and dies

Squirrel, birds, tree branch, bird feeder, Hello -Nuts about You stamp and dies

Die-cut the slider mechanism, adhere the deer and bird to the left side. Adhere the bird to the right side of the slider mechanism. Die-cut and adhere grass from the Slimline Scenery Dies to this panel and the cardbase. Adhere the slider to the back of this panel and then using the 3d foam, adhere to the cardbase.

Adhere all the images to finish the card.

Here is a video to see how it works.

Thank you for stopping by!

MFT 2021 Card Design Superstar - Coloring Virtuoso

Hello friends! Hope everyone is doing fine. There is a lot going on in life at the moment and I really really needed a distraction, I find crafting helps a bit, especially challenges. Normally, I don't play along challenges anymore due to time constraints but this one is close to my heart. I decided to create a card for the 2021 Card Design Superstar Contest hosted by My Favorite Things for the Coloring Virtuoso category.
I love playing with colors to forget everything, sounds strange. Try this, it's a great therapy. Anyhoo, I played with some watercolors and dabbled in no-line watercolor technique. It did take some time as I find for me it's easier to color florals  than critters :)
I used one of the cutest Stacey Yacula stamp "You Make Me Smile". Stamped the image using antique linen distress ink and colored using various watercolors.

 Hope you enjoyed this and try coloring, it's a great therapy :) Thank you for dropping by!

Hello friends! Hope everyone is doing fine. There is a lot going on in life at the moment and I really really needed a distraction, I find crafting helps a bit, especially challenges. Normally, I don't play along challenges anymore due to time constraints but this one is close to my heart.  I decided to create a card for the 2021 Card Design Superstar Contest hosted by My Favorite Things.

I made a Clean and Simple card for the Clean & Simple Genius category. I love CAS cards as we can tell a whole story within the limited space :) Still keeping the eyes onto the strong focal point with plenty of white space. To give more interest, there is coloring and dimension.
I love gnomes, fairies, enchanted forest with cute critters, mushrooms and here I have it I used the Hanging with My Gnomies stamp and dies. Stamped the images, colored using Copic markers, sponged some ink to create grass and sky Aaaand done.

Sunny Studio - New Year Cards

Hello everyone! Isha with you, sharing some fun and bright New Year cards. Today the focus is on the GORGEOUS Forest Trees stencils. This is a set of three stencils, which makes it easy to create beautiful backgrounds.

Card 1: I started by sponging distress inks in cracked pistachio, peacock feathers, lucky clover, pine needles onto a white cardstock using the Forest trees stencils. I used all the three layers and repeated the process to fill the whole background. 

I then flicked some pine needle, gold and white inks. Frame this piece using the Fancy Frames Rectangle.

Stamp the sentiment from the Seasons Greetings stamp set using versamark ink and emboss using WOW! metallic gold rich embossing powder. Die-cut using the coordinating dies. Die-cut one more piece using red cardstock and adhere this slightly offset behind the sentiment. Adhere this panel to a red cardbase. Add gold floss behind the sentiment and finish by using some Emerald Jewels.

Card 2: I sponged the background using distress inks in tattered rose, candied apple, abandoned coral, fired brick and aged mahogany as the above piece. The only difference is that I flipped the stencils to create the next layers. This gives a beautiful angled forest look. Flick, gold and white paint.Adhere this piece to the inner frame of the Fancy Frames die. Adhere this to a white cardbase. 

Die-cut the snowflakes using the Lacy Snowflakes die. Add some gold paint. Adhere to the card. Stamp the sentiment from the Inside Greetings - Holidays stamp set.

These cards were quick to make and are perfect for mailing. Thanks for dropping by!
