Sparkly Birthday Card

Hello to all

Today I am showcasing a dimensional and an elegant CAS style cards using the pearlized watercolor technique.

I used this beautiful sketch again:

I used Veined daisy stamp set which is new in my stash and embossed the floral image in metallic gold. On my craft mat, I mixed silver Perfect pearl in a water. I wet the area with loose water and colored using Distress inks mixing with pearlized water. See the shimmer clearly in this pic.

 The frames were cut with stitched rectangles as I showed them how to place them.

Then I popped up the inner and outer frames using dimensional pads.

The sentiment is also heat embossed in metallic gold-rich pale from the same stamp set on a flag banner. And in the end, I added some gold splatters and sequins.

Cardstock: Neenah Solar White CS
Stamp: Veined Daisy Stamp set from peek-a-boo Designs

Happy Birthday

Hello, crafty peeps!

I am back with another card using the same pearlized watercoloring technique. I showcase how to use both negative and positive space to watercolor the image. Visit here to see the positive space way. This is the part of my DT post for Peek-a-boo Designs! 

I started with a ticket die panel and heat embossed the image with gold glitter embossing powder.
I decided to create a fun soft ombre blending colors BG using picked raspberry, fired brick, candied apple distress inks mixed with pearl shimmer water. I blended the color from the bottom up and faded out to white cardstock in between and highlighted the image with very soft light pink. See the shimmer clearly below in this pic:

On my white card base, I created a washi tape panel stripes (which is new in my stash) with satin red ribbon and added different border panel for more dimension and interest. Added the Birthday sentiment. And adhered the focal panel on it. In the end, added a red bow with a pearl.

Frosty and shimmery!

Hello to all!

Today I want to showcase a Pearlized watercoloring technique card!
This is a part of my DT for Peek-s-boo Designs!

This is my take on the given sketch.

On this card, I started with a stitched ticket die cut panel and using the sunshine stamp set I masked some of the floral parts of this stamp. Stamped the image and heat embossed with glitter gold. Now using Pearlized water coloring technique, I colored the bloom using DI. I created my BG panel with different distress inks salty oceans, mermaid lagoon, mowed lawn and the lucky clover for the frosty and cold look.

 I highlighted only the floral image with pearl shimmer. Then created a background panel with shimmer using same distress inks. Added the sentiment and heat embossed in Metallic gold-rich pale and just in mermaid lagoon. Adhered all the layers to my white card base.For the embellishments added some water dew drops and shimmery gorgeous white ribbon.

Supply list
Cardstock: White 300gsm CS
Stamp: Sunshine stamp set from Peek-a-boo designs
Dies: Stitched Ticket die, Dual Stitched Rounded Rectangles from Peek-a-boo designs
Distress Inks: salty oceans, mermaid lagoon, mowed lawn and the lucky clover

Altered Gift Box!

Hello to all my wonderful friends!

          Today I altered a cover of the gift box with multi-layer, textures and my own handmade foam flowers in the combo of violet and shades of purple and pinks, as the ultraviolet color is chosen as Pantone color of the Year 2018!

I started with a wooden plank stamp on a white cardstock using distress inks and cut them into strips. 

Then adhered them on a gift box cover panel to create my background.

I used a brick stencil and texture paste and mixed the tiny thermocol balls in it to get the patchy brickwork and then applied white chalk paint over the bricks and spray with pink color.
Now on a corrugated sheet randomly tear it and applied white chalk paint on it.
Stamped some Botanical flower and leave images on vellum sheet and heat embossed them in different colors.

Now time to create my own handmade foam flowers. I die cut some flowers and leaves using Botanical wings die set out of three coloured foam sheet. Applied gently some pastel colors on the die cut flowers. Using my iron, shaped them easily to create these flowers in different sizes and styles as shown in the given pic. Highlighted them with some crystal clear powder and sparkly dots. I roughly placed all the embellishments and flowers on the panel and took a pic. I used some tags from Amor Mio PP.

Now embellished my whole panel using different elements as shown in the pic. And added the MDF Quote- "I am here to be awesome."Here are some more close-ups:

For someone special day!

Hello everyone!

Today I want to show a dimensional card which I made for a Birthday gift for someone special!
This is the part of my DT post for Peek-a-boo Designs!

For this card, I die cut a heart-shaped balloon die multiple times and used them as my own background on a rounded stitched rectangle panel.

Now I blended some distress inks and added some water splatters.

Then die cut a stitched border circle in white. Stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it. Die cut Hello sentiment in white CS. Now created a stack of heart balloon dies once again.

 On the top, applied glossy accent on it and mixed it with alcohol ink purple twilight. After drying covered it with Dimensional magic and some hologram sequins. So cool!

 Love the dimension!
Adhered them to my focal panel! The dimensional balloon really popped up and changed the whole look of this finished card. Added the sentiment, heat embossed in Opaque bright white. Finished it off with some sequins.

Bird Family Layout in Mixed Media style

Hello to all!
Happy Sunday!

Important: Yayyyy! So happy that this project is chosen as a winner here:
Winner's Badge

Today, I am showcasing a layout of a Happy Bird family with a cute scene! In this creation, I used Ripping and tearing technique!

I started with a layout. I covered my cardboard with shiny blue handmade paper and added one more layer to my base in the lime green floral handmade paper.

The wooden black background which is peeking from a ripped circle is dry embossed and I applied different acrylic colors and Inka gold to bring out the wooden texture. The top layer is the centre cut and ripped open to reveal on this second layer beneath.

The top layer is a corrugated sheet and gave a coat of black chalk paint and then I applied brown embossing paste through a stencil. Highlighted with different acrylic paints, Inka old gold and silver color. I added some stamping leaves too but not able to picturise them clearly.

Straws, some birds are fixed to the LO. And I added a multilayer of more inked corrugated borders at the bottom. Added some die cut borders in white and embellished it with some natural paper brown color flowers, pollens, mulberry flowers in shades of blue and some stockings wired net leaves.

On a silver metal sheet, I dry embossed it using a stencil and die cut some more hearts and added them too. The big heart is heat embossed 8 to 9 times using platinum silver embossing powder, looking so graceful! In the end, added some splatters in white using gesso. I finished it off with an  MDF sentiment-  "I am so ready for our future together!"

Do you know what I used for creating these textures, just guess! Hmmm, I used my broken sieve:)

I started with a white CS and applied texture paste using this sieve. Then I sprayed Marsala color and sprinkled some water spray and removed the extra color for a soft look. 

On the top, I just blended candied apple DI and added some splatters. In result, I achieved the gorgeous background! I wanted to create some snow effect feel to the background!

The die used here is out of black CS and I die cut it 3 times and trim some of the branches according to my need. Applied diamond stickles dots to the end of each branch to create berries. Stamping some pine bough branches.
The sentiment is heat embossed with glitter gold. Paring it with a black CS and added the stripes of gold glitter sheet. And finally attached a double color handmade bow.

Supplies used:
Cardstocks: Heavyweight black CS, white CS, gold glitter sheet
Stamps: Poinsettia Peace from Poppy stamps, Big Holiday Set of 3 from Inspired by Stamping
Dies: Bamboo Sticks from die-namites; Rectangles from Tattered lace
