Shades of Grey

Hello crafty friends,

I am back with another card made with Graciellie Design's March release.

For today's card I colored the printed image with grey copic markers to give depth and to keep the flower white.

For the card base I took a white card stock and inked different shades of blue on one side with Altenew Inks and splattered white gesso and black paint. I added a black glitter washi tape on one side of my card base and adhered the inked panel. I arranged the flowers with foam tape.

I printed a butterfly from the 'Butterflies' stamp set and colored it with copics. I added foam tape for 3 dimension effect.

Stamp used:

Wedding scrapbook album

Hi folks,

Today is a pictorial walk through a wedding album I made and also a video of it. The papers I used are from Bob n Betty, wired organza ribbon from Meraki cards. The flowers are all hand made - I have used Cheery Lynn dies, Heartfelt Creation Classic Rose die.
The album is 9" x 9" and has 6 pocket pages. I used Hidden Hinge by Kathy Orta for hinges. All the pockets with pull out photo mat.
So here are pictures....

I used the cameo to cut the names and tags for jounalling.

and here is the video:

Special Wedding wishes.


Today I am sharing a special card made for a wedding. The request was for red and yellow roses. I have used 'Roses all Around' paper stack from Bob N Betty.

I layered the card with various die cuts. Roses and filler flowers are hand made using HFC Classic Rose die. I have added Sparkling Dust from Dress My craft, but the glitter is not well caught in the camera.  I added few grapevine die cuts from HFC collection. I arranged the flowers in an arch and added the focus die cut of the couple. I added few foam tapes for the 3D effect.
I die cut heart frames from gold CS and interlocked them. Stamped and added the sentiment.
Here are few more pictures:

Hope you liked my card. Do leave your comments below since they matter a lot to me and keeps me motivated.
Till next time - Happy crafting!

Now coming to my inspiration, I have used the 'Stay Magical' stamp set of February release.

1. Shaker card.

  • I stamped the rainbow with clouds stamp on the base card and colored it with Copics. 
  • I used a cloud die cut and used DI, to create cloud effect on the back ground.
  • I used an inverted scallop frame die cut for the window. 
  • Added foam tapes under the frame. 
  • Used a blue card stock as a layer from which I cut out a window and stamped stars with white Hero Arts Ink.
  • Stamped and colored the Unicorn with Copics and fussy cut it.
  • Added sequins and assembled the card.
  • Stamped the sentiment and added it on the frame.
2. Stamp Highlight 

  • For this card, I stamped the unicorn images randomly on a white CS, with grey Altenew Ink.
  • I stamped the main image and colored it with Copics and fussy cut it.
  • I adhered the image with foam tape and added few purple colored sequins.
  • I stamped the sentiment and layered it with black CS and adhered it on the panel which I stuck on a white card base.
3. Born to be cute


  •  For this card I inked top part of a white card stock with different blue inks from Altenew to create a sky. I splattered white gesso on it.
  • I layered two cloud die cuts, inked with blue inks.
  • I stamped the images and colored them with Copics. Fussy cut the images.
  • Adhered the images and added few sequins.
  • Stamped the sentiment and layered it with black CS
  • I adhered the panel to a black CS.
