Coloring on vellum

Hi there,

I have seen fabulous cards with coloring on vellum and so I wanted tried my hand in that. Here is a gratitude card I made, since it is the time for sharing and thanksgiving.

 I stamped the flower images and heat embossed with white embossing powder and used Zig brush pens for coloring. I used Spellbinder die to create a window and layered it with die cuts from Memory Box dies to create Faux laser cut effect (inspired by Jennifer McGuire). The sentiment is heat embossed in gold. 

 I am entering this card for the following challenges

Sharing Handmande Kindness

I made this card to cheer up someone who is suffering from cancer. Even though I don't know her personally, I felt I should try my best to brighten up her day by sharing my handmade card.

I colored the flowers with Zig clean color brush pens and layered with Spellbinder dies. 
Inner panel I stamped a wonderful sentiment and a butterfly. I also added a personal message.

Hope this cheers her up!

Peacock theme

I had made quilled peacock feather on tags. My third attempt as a center piece for this card. I layered the peacock feather to give a recessed window effect and covered it with an acetate sheet. I used Heartfelt Creations dies for flowers.

 The inner panel is stamped with HFC Peacock paisley stamp, colored with copics and cut with coordinating die. The feathers are also from the same collection. 

Hope you liked my card. Thanks for stopping by.

White and Gold is royal..

One more special card ...

I love Heartfelt Creations Blossoms Corner die. It's delicate and gorgeous. I wanted to create a card all in white. So made the flowers in white and the leaves too. But I didn't find it appealing on a dry run.

 So I decided to emboss the die cut in gold. I applied Versamark Ink and embossed with ranger Gold Tinsel embossing powder. I colored the pollen and pearl on the sentiment with Krylon Gold leaf pen and stamped and embossed the sentiment in gold to go with the color scheme.

Hope you liked my card. Ty for stopping by.

Here is a card I made with a completely different color combination. Green and yellow!
I made a flip card with Spellbinders die following Christina Griffiths tutorial. The inner panel I stamped and heat embossed with Natural Shimmer Embossing glitter from WOW.

The sentiment on the inner panel is given more sparkle with white stones.

I embellished the card with hand made flowers, lace and pearls. Hope you like it.

Scrapbook album

Hello everyone,

It's a long time since I wrote in my blog. Though I have been making cards I couldn't write about them. Anyway I tried something new this time.

It has been a long time wish to try my hand in making a scrapbook album. I scanned YouTube and found Scrapbook Maven's tutorials easy to follow. Here's my twist to it.

This is an album for a boy as a gift for his first birthday.The pictures are hand drawn and colored with water color pencils and Zig Clean clear brush pens.

I made interactive pages and tags for penning the memories down.

Here is a link to the video of the album .

Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy crafting!

Handmade cards

Hello friends,

Here is another handmade card. 

I used cream cardstock and layered with green paper. I used a pattern paper from Eno Greetings 'Happy Birthday' designer series for the final layer. I have used strips of punched green and pink papers to line a strip of embossed cream card stock layered with a pink lace on the side.
I added quilled flowers and leaves to decorate the card. To give a delicate touch I have added a die cut from Heartfelt Creations - Scalloped Posy, inked with pink and green to match the color scheme.

The pattern paper has a bird which I highlighted by giving a 3D effect. I cut the paper from another sheet and shaped it with Hearfelt Creations tools and just added a dab of ink and stuck with foam tapes.

Here is another view to see the 3D effect of the bird.

Playing with dies

Hello everyone,
Here is a card I created recently. And this is my first attempt in making paper flowers with Heartfelt Creations dies. I used chalk ink to color the flowers. 

I used A2 bracket border from Spellbinders to create the edges on the layers. The yellow decorative lace was created by the border die in Spellbinders Asian Accents. I cut two dies and overlapped them. The sentiment is also cut with circular die in Asian accents.
For the flowers I used Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms and Majestic Morning flower dies.  The leaves are using the Spellbinders Foliage die. I added few flourishing vine die from Arianna Lace set by Heartfelt Creations, below the flowers to give a delicate look.

I added a cute Tilda image, stamped and colored with watercolor pencils. I embellished the sentiment with pearls.

Hope you like my card. I am entering this card for Challenge #13 DIE - namic card by Kraftzone. 

Happy crafting.

Thinking of you

Hello everyone,
Blue is my favorite color and I love working with intricate dies. Here is what I came up with.....
A double panel card with 'Thinking of You' sentiments.

 For the front panel I took 11" long and 4.5" wide card stock and cut the end with Heartfelt creations Layered scalloped die and folded the ends to form a gatefold. Small flowers distressed with blue ink added to give a 3 dimensional touch on the decorative edges. The gatefold is held in place with a blue organza ribbon. 

I stamped and embossed the sentiment and decorated the panel with quilled flowers. 

The second panel I used a contrast color - orange. This is a simple fold card with a cute Bildmalarna stamp ( From my Heart )- stamped and colored. 

The side of inner panel has a pocket with Spellbinders Decorative corner die where a message is printed with a tag to add your personal message. The inner panel layer is distressed with blue ink and the corner die with orange and blue colors. The tags are also distressed with blue and tied with a blue organza ribbon. 

 The video shows the double panel of the card.
