Valentine Cards

Hi,
Happy Valentine's day!!! Wish you have a great time with your near and dear ones.
I had intended to share lots of Valentine themed  cards in the past week, but it only remained in thoughts :)

Today I managed to create some finally.....

The first one




The flowers from Inspired By Stamping "Friends Forever" stamp set, which I colored using water color pencil and fuzzy cut it. The panel background is from my scrap which I was left from paper smooshing. I used red brush pen to border the panel. Sentiment id from Mudra stamps " Beautiful Butterflies". I used 2 dye inks to get that look on the sentiment.

With this card I am playing along 





=======================================================

The second card 




Too much shine :). I was actually experimenting with this one. I used a white glue to draw lines across the panel and dusted it with lots of glitter, tapped off the extra and allowed it to dry for some time. I know, with tacky tape I would have got nice clean and crisp lines but I wanted to explore with white glue. Well I was happy with the result!. As if the glitter was not enough I went ahead and added the glitter foam sheet die cut heart and the sentiment from SSS "Heartfelt Notes". It's a bit too blingy but I like it :)

I am sharing this card for following challenges

A Sea-horse Valentine!!!

Hello Friends,
With the start of February the blog land is buzzing with Valentine themes, so ,not be left behind I too came up with Valentine card. (There are few more to come in few days )

Well this one is not with the conventional red/pink colors, hearts or color scheme associated with Valentine's day. This one is with sea horses! I have always found them mystical and beautiful and somehow I wanted to make Valentine card using it. And one more reason that somewhere in my mind I was associating Valentine day with them was , I love the fact that male sea horses carry the eggs and not the female ones! That I find it so sweet and adorable to do for your partner. Just wondering if possible for humans also:)

Ok...enough of me turning philosophical, here is the card.....


The sea horse stamp is from my kids stamp set (He generously let's me use his whenever I need it :)) and the heart shaped sentiment and tiny heart bubbles are from SSS Heartfelt Notes. The waves were created by cutting vellum and then coloring and lining with silver stickle. Sea weeds and other details are hand drawn. I added in few details to the heart bubbles and sea horses using while gel pen.
I added a burlap border from Itsy Bitsy to finish off the card.

There were many firsts for me with this card. I used the mirror stamping technique for the sea horse and I think this would me my most layered card till date. Usually I stick to minimum layers.

So that's it from me today. I love to read your comments, please do leave some love.

Have a great week ahead!!!

Superman birthday invites / Push pull card

Hello Friends,
Today I am back to share some birthday invites I had made last month. One of my friend requested me to make some invites for her son's birthday. I had only 2 days at hand and wanted to make something special for the kid. One thing was the kid wanted only Superman themed birthday so the invites also had to adhere to the theme!

I was always fascinated to make push pull birthday invites and what better chance I would get. So I went ahead with that.

The colors of the paper used were red and blue. Logo was drawn by birthday boy's elder brother and he wrote the invite as well.





The push -pull mechanism




Here is the video showing the steps to make it, hope you enjoy it!








Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I love to read your comments.

Corner pop-up album/card

Hey there,
I was on a short and sweet vacation with my lovely friends so could not blog for few days. I have couple of projects to post this week. I am consciously  trying my hand on some new things and techniques, so one of the first things I made was a corner pop-up card. I just love them, the way they pop up is so much of fun!









I have also made a video of the process. Hope you like it!



Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day ahead!

Loose water coloring

Hi,
I did not intend to post back to back but somehow going ahead with it!  I watched a video by Kelly Latevola on loose water coloring and I was totally inspired by the card she made. Her card is incredible and will blow your mind. I had to try it, the results are not as fantastic as hers but I totally loved the process of being a little messy and playing with water colors, adding layers and have fun! The only tough part was waiting for the colors to dry, as I do not have a heating tool, I had to be very patient with letting the colors dry before going for another layer.



I like the way colors just flow out of the image. Added some details using white and black gel pen also created a shadow using the grey water color pencil. For the coloring I have used DI.
Stamps and sentiment are from Mudra Wild rose and Beautiful butterflies.


I would definitely recommend to try this and have fun!
