Happy New Year Card #3 - Christmas Ornament Lights!

Hi everyone! I'm back again with the 3rd card for NY card series. I've used ornaments as lights and celebrate diecut to create a new year card. And it's a kind of mix and match card! Entering this card for CASology Week 127where the key word is 'light'.

I took a black card stock and stamped the ornaments in Versamark ink and heat set it with gold embossing powder. Then I took white and light purple chalk inks and rubbed on and around the ornaments using a sponge dauber to create the hallow effect. It's like the ornaments were glowing in the night or dark back ground.. ;) I got inspired by Ardyth's card!

Hope you like it. Thanks so much for stopping by. See you.. 
And I wish you all a very

Happy New Year Card #2

Hi everyone! Here is the second NY card, I made for Indira Tanwar's Mega Celebration Event II. The challenge is to create a card inspired from Indian motifs. Well.. I'm not much into Indian designs, I google searched for few designs but I found it very difficult to make a card with those designs! So I was sitting and thinking that what could be perfect for this challenge? To pick up something I turned my head and found this beautiful 'Indian elephant design' on my bread spread! And that's it I took my pencil and started drawing the image.. :)

I didn't like this elephant so I drew a baby elephant.. ;)

Water colored the elephant with markers.. And stamped the sentiment in Archival jet black ink.. :)

Also I have a Christmas card to share, made for Curtain Call Inspiration Candy Cane and Cosmic Colours Challenge #8

I hand drew the candy canes and adhered them to form a heart shape.. ;)

And that's it. Hope you like these two. Thanks SO much for stopping by! See you soon.. :)

Two cards!

Hi everyone! I'm sharing two cards today made for Virginia's View Challenge #10, all things distressed and for CASology 126 where the cue word is snow

I first drew a circle with a compass and then fussy cut it. Then placed the circle on to the main card base and stamped the roses (Rubber cafe stamps). After stamping I then stamped the sentiment(from the same set) in Hero arts neon ink. Colored all the roses and leaves in Picked Raspberry and peeled paint distress inks respectively!


Here comes the second one!

To make this card, first I hand drew the snow man then I hand cut the snow banks and adhered on to the front of the card. Then stamped the sentiment (Micia stamps) in versafine black ink. Then on an other piece of cardstock I stamped (unknown stamp) two little girls, water colored them with markers, fussy cut and adhered them. Then I water colored the back ground using the blue marker. Finally added drops of snow with white water color paint and paint brush.

Also entering this card for Simon Says Stamp Winter Inspiration

So that's it friends! Hope you like them. Thank you so much for stopping by. Will stop by your blogs very soon!

Take care and have fun.. ;)

ric#73 Balmain

Hi everyone! I made this card for Runway Inspired Challenges ric#73 Balmain. The inspiration picture has got some bold colors and it's challenging too.. ;)

I did masking to the background with Faber castell ink in red and black, Mustard seed distress ink and Danube Blue Memento Ink.. The back ground was too bold so just to tone down the brightness I added a hand made vellum tag with a stamped sentiment. I felt like the sides of the card was too empty so I filled up with some antique gold sequins :)

Hope you like it. Thanks so much for stopping by! ;)

Thanks and Thanks!!

This is the second post for the day. Please click here for the Christmas Card #3 video.

I made this card for Runway Inspired Challenge #ric 72, Herve Leger. I LOVED LOVED the inspiration photo of the challenge and I found it's a bit challenging too. ;) and also entering this for 
Inkspirational Challenge #69, Shine because I've used lots of shine, glitter on my card and Little Tangles #49, Giving Thanks, I have only one stamp set 'My heart Sings' in my stash and I didn't find anything related to 'thanks' in the set, so I went with other stamps! Hope this qualifies! :)


I hand drew the leaf first, inspired by one of the google images..

Then I water colored it with my red and orange markers..

when we mix these two colors they turn into a slight peachy pink color.. Then I sprinkled some water on to the card base and poured gold embossing powder and heat set it with heat it tool from Ranger. I did the same too on the leaf. Then I took a few embroidery threads and ruffled them and placed them behind the leaf. Before adhering the threads I stamped with My Mind's Eye stamp on the card base in Neon orange ink. Added clear stickles on the leaf for some shine! Finally added sequins here and there and stamped the sentiment from Techniqe Tuesday on the card!


And that's it! Hope you like it.
See you soon. Take care!
