Today, I have this cute card using the awesome Pumpkin Shaker die. It has so many various elements to give all kind of playful details. 
I started by sponging some inks to create the background. I then die-cut the pumpkin along with the outline and the face and also the leaves.
I embossed the outline using Chocolate Caramel Pearl and Pop embossing powders from WOW!
I then embossed a small scrap piece using Black Embossing Glitter. I adhere this piece behind the eyes and mouth.
Now, I sponged some distress inks to the inside part of the pumpkin and added a bit of Peach Gleam Embossing Glitter. I applied color to the leaves and tendrils using various copic markers.

I adhered everything to the mat layer and adhered this to a white cardbase. I then stamped the sentiment and adhered the cute iridescent butterflies crystals. Finally, I flicked some gold and green shimmer spray.

Heffy Doodle: Marvellous Day!

Hello everyone, today I am sharing a pretty floral card on Heffy Doodle blog using the Blooming Marvellous stamp set from the new release. I am sharing how to color the solid stamps using faux watercoloring and the no-line coloring technique.

To start, I smooched tumbled glass distress ink to the Pinstripe stencil, spritz with water and put it onto a watercolor paper (onk side down). Remove the stencil and we get this light texture effect. Let it dry and die-cut it using the Ovally Excited die.

I then stamped the florals and single leaves using antique linen distress ink onto watercolor paper. I added color to them using faber-castell and Zig clean color real brush pens and a aqua brush.

For the leaves twig, I inked them using various shades of distress inks, spritz water about 2 -3 times from a distance and stamped it onto watercolor paper. Once everything is dry, I die-cut them using the Blooming Marvellous dies.

Adhere the oval to a white cardbase and stamp the sentiment. Stamp and emboss the word Marvellous using Passion Fruit Embossing Glitter by WOW! and die-cut it. Adhere the florals and the leaves to create a cluster of your linking.

To finish, I added some black splatters and nuvo drops. Have a wonderful day!

Studio Katia: Best Day Ever!

Hello everyone! I am on the Studio Katia blog with this CAS card.

I love black cards with a pop of color, although I have to admit that this one was difficult to capture in pics Sorry about that. I started by creating a black panel as the background layer. I stamped the pretty florals using versamark ink and then embossed using the black glint embossing glitter from WOW! Embossing Powder. I then adhered this panel to a peach cardstock. I then die-cut the word Best using the same peach CS. I die-cut the shadow of the best die using vellum and adhered them together. Check out the pretty tone on tone background. 

I then stamped the rest of the sentiment and adhered everything to the card. To finish, I adhered some pretty Onyx Crystals. Thank you for dropping by! Have a nice crafty day!

Fun Stampers Journey September Stamp of the Month

Hello everyone! It’s September and I'm so pleased to share Fun Stampers Journey's September Stamp Of The Month: Friendship Blessings

I love this beautiful floral stamp set because the flowers are gorgeous, and they are a great size for various techniques. This stamp set has a coordinating die set too.

I made 3 cards using this stamp set using 3 different techniques. check it out :)
I love this half open flower so much that I had to color it in rainbow colors and then I decided to do a shaker element. The Star-Fetti were the perfect choice as they are tiny pretty stars, which resemble the galaxy theme I have going here :)

Here is a close-up to see the awesome subtle shine sparkle  silk gives. After coloring I added some to the florals.

For my next card, I played with some Liquid Colors for the background. I stamped some of the images directly onto the mat layer and then kept the flower fairly simple.

For my last card, I used the stencil and Liquid colors to create the background. I then stamped and embossed the images using WOW! Embossing Powder Opaque white and colored them using Nuvo Aqua Flow pens.

Here is a close-up for the fun florals.
