Whimsical Wonders.... DT post for Conie Fong

Hello,

It is a long time since I colored and my DT post for Conie Fong was long pending. Change of residence, settling down had me occupied and now I am back to my crafting and today I have used one of the images from the set 'Crystal Fairy'. I have used the image without crystals.

I have always loved stories about fairies and goblins. When as a kid, I was always immersed in such whimsical and mystical stories and even used to fantasize meeting them. Dark forests, small fairies with glittering wings and magical dust, making our dreams come true....... I read somewhere "Sometimes we need to survive the reality". How true! So let me get to reality and share how I created my project 😃

I colored the image with copic markers and used Polychromos pencils for some shading. I lightly gave a background shading with Distress inks.



I created a Mixed Media Layout using the image. I have used Stamperia Papers 'Dream'. I added some stencilling and stamping in the background and used a few layers of papers. I also added a few chipboards embellishments and diecuts. I glued few sequins since a fairy is all glitter and magical. I cut a sentiment from the paper pack and adhered it with foam tape.




I finally added my handmade foamiran flowers and few butterflies which I fussy cut from some of the pattern papers in my stash.



Here is the final layout:




Hope you liked my Layout. Thank you for stopping by. Till next time - Happy Crafting!!

Pink and Purple Birthday cards

Hello,

Recently I made two birthday cards and the request was one to be pink based and the other purple.

For the purple based card I used Stamperia 'Lilac Flowers'. Such a gorgeous paper pack. I made a tri fold card and embellished the front panel with my handmade foamiran flowers and die cuts.









Tags, Photomat cut from the paper pack. Birthday message foiled with my Minc machine using Deco foil.

Here is the Pink themed card. I used Bob n Betty 'Floral Nymph' paper pack. Gorgeous flowers and beautiful Nymphs and loads of fussy cutting. Again die cuts and my handmade foamiran flowers as embellishments.









Hope you liked my cards. Thank you for stopping by. Till next time - Happy crafting!!!

Hooked

Hi there,

I am at Papericious blog today as a Guest Designer, sharing two projects using their paper pack 'Hooked'. The papers have gorgeous floral images for fussy cutting and I have done a few to embellish my projects.

Tunnel card


The card measures 8.5” x 5.5”. I created the base with Vanilla card stock and created the tunnel panels inside with the pattern papers.

I die cut circle windows for the tunnel effect. I fussy cut the floral patterns from the pack and adhered on the panels. I die cut one of the sentiments and adhered it in the center.






On the side panel I created a small pocket to hold a message tag. This piece I cut from the cover of the paper pack. I fussy cut a small bow and added it on the tag.




On the front panel I added two circle frames and die cuts at the corners. I added few of my handmade paper flowers I had in my stash.



Hope you liked my card. Here is a video of the card.




Magnetic bookmark

The book mark measures 6” x 3”. I created a flap and layered all the side with paper from the 6 x 6 paper pack. 



Before layering I added magnets for closure. I added few die cuts and fussy cut some floral images. 

I added a sentiment from the paper pack on the smaller flap. I added twine for the bookmark and adhered few die cut butterflies.




Here is a video of the bookmark:
