Chase Your Dreams

Hello Friends,

Wishing you all a great start for this new year!

I am so glad to share my handmade flowers with this new project, on this bright canvas background...





These flowers are handmade! Aren't they looking gorgeous?
These are made up of thin foam sheets. Beautiful curling has been done using hot iron.


Orange flowers are made using Tim Holtz tattered florals die and blue ones using sunrise lily die from Heartfelt Creations. 



Stencil and wooden embellishments are from The Craft Studio.


This lovely background was hand painted using Itsy Bitsy chalk paint "sailing sky", colour splash "ocean mist" and white gesso.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a Great day!!

You are so enchanting - Princess Layout

Hello everyone!

I am back with a princess theme layout tutorial! 
This project revived my childhood memories and fairy tales as it is inspired from a famous fairy tale and you will certainly recognise it after looking at it. 




Now moving on to the picture tutorial....

STEPS:

1.Take a piece of cardboard, any colour corrugated sheet and distress or archival inks. 


2. Create the background blending the inks using blending tool and glue a piece of corrugated sheet to the base.
3. Now using the stamp set "Dots to Lines", stamp the image randomly and add white embossing powder to it. Heat emboss the stamped area. 


4. Next I picked this lovely stamp "You are so Enchanting" and stamped the images on a piece of white cardstock, coloured them using faber castell colour pencils and fussy cut them.

 5. Select other embellishments to go with your background, like flowers, chipbords, die cuts, pattern papers etc. 


6. Arrange and glue the elements to the cardboard


7. I added some more texture to the base by applying shimmer texture paste to the corrugated sheet. These are so good to use for any mixed media project and on any surface! I also added some tint of gold paste 






8. Here is the completed look and some more close up pics...







 Hope you enjoyed the tutorial, do leave some love and feedback below.
Happy Holidays & Happy Weekend!!

Best Friends

Hello Friends!

It's 1st December and just one month with 2017! This year just flew away. I couldn't share many posts during past few months but have new commitments and zeal to enter another year with lots of ideas and projects! 

And yes love all my lovely blogger pals for being with me, encouraging me, supporting me and to all new people and friends I made. Isn't this a wonderful feeling to be a Blogger family when you have people distant from you but you can just talk to them, share thoughts, crafty gifts and lots of love! Thank you God for introducing me with these lovely people :)

Now let me share my project that I created for Craftyscrappers

Complete challenge details can be found HERE

Here is my inspiration card,



A brief description
On how to create this fun card
  • Took a thick white cardstock and folded it into half in such a manner that front side is smaller than back side
  • Using archival ink "Vibrant fuscia" created the background getting a dense shade at bottom and moving with a lighter shade on top
  • Sprinkled few drops of water and removed the excess droplets with tissue
  • Using this cute stamp set "Wishing you Tons of Fun" by Craftyscrappers, stamped the images then coloured and fussy cut them.
  •  Added a piece of acetate to the front side of the card using double sided tape
  • Punched the corners of the card 
  • Using "Brick stencil" from Craftyscrappers added the embossing ink using sponge on the cardstock and acetate
  • Added gold embossing powder and heat embossed it. I repeated the process to get a thicker layer
  • Lastly added the images using foam tape and added few sequins and sentiments. 


And yes this cute elephant stamp set is designed by me! :)

Now it's your turn to join us at Craftyscrappers, you can share any type of project as long as it meets the theme of challenge "Embossing" and with one product from Craftyscrappers!

Feeling of Gratitude!

Hello Friends,

I am sharing a tag today, I am not pretty much in making tags but thought of making it today and then I was inspired to use something special here, continue reading to know what it is!

Also I tried my hands on pencil colouring after a long time and it came out pretty well...I just loved it, not bad doing after a long time.
Have a look....







This image is something special that inspired me to use it. It is designed by Shery Russ from Stamplorations and is a freebie! 

I got it printed, coloured it and used it for my tag! It perfectly suited the background colours as well. 

Background is made using distress inks "mowed lawn", "broken china" and pigment blue ink from colourbox.

Then I used "gathered twig" distress ink on stencil to get this brown beautiful design.
Sentiment is handwritten since I did'nt have something in my stash relating to gratitude...so I used this beautiful quote from internet.

Also I have used foam dots to add more dimension to the flowers and for a touch of polka dots.

I hope you liked my tag, do share with me!

Thanks for visiting!
Have a Great day, Happy Crafting!

Linking this tag to following challenges on Stamplorations:

Mermaid Wishes!



Hello Friends!

My second post for today! Feeling happy to share my projects :)

Here is a colourful interactive card..


This is how it opens up.......




For the background I have used distress ink with brick stencil and added silver foil randomnly at few bricks, isn't the combination looking pretty? For the other half part I have used chevron pattern paper with a splash of shimmer sprays. I have stamped some fishes to the front panel too.




These cute mermaids were stamped, coloured and then fussy cut. I have adhered them to small pieces of vellum and added to my card using foam tape. Stamp is from Craftyscrappers "Mermaid Wishes"

This was all....I hope you liked this cute card

Let me share the picture of my projects first,





I loved the shimmery effect achieved with fun foil, it is so easy to use and you can use it on different surfaces!


A brief tutorial:

To begin with you need following art supplies:
  • Fun Foil from Craftyscrappers

  • Adhesive Foam Sheet
  • White cardstock
  • Fevicol
  • Scissors
  • Tissue paper
  • OHP sheet or vellum
  • Cardboard (to lay tissue paper)
  • Embossing powder 
  • Heat tool 
To create the tissue paper background, I took a piece of cardboard and glued tissue paper to it roughly 




Now give it a coat of white gesso...


And spray it with shimmer spray "Sweet Sunshine" from Craftyscrappers

Further procedure is explained in the video...



Added diecut houses and sentiment tag to complete the look.






For this I have created the background using the same technique with tissue paper. Then embellished it with flowers and diecuts. To create the tiles follow the process in video.




And for this one I just picked some pieces of lace, natural twigs tied with yellow satin ribbon to create a bed for my butterflies. Background & butterfly making process is also mentioned in video.

Thanks for visiting!


Happy Crafting!
