Layered Love card

Hi Friends!

Today have come with a Layered Love card, made this having few ongoing challenges in mind.

This card made especially using Papericious brand products from India.

I absolutely love My Golden Garden PP stack and was waiting to lay my hands on it. Very Recently my parents sent loads of craft supplies from India, sourcing from various craft stores in India, it was my birthday gifts reached me just few weeks back :)

  • Layered the pps from the My golden garden set.
  • Distressed the edges using scissors and stacked on to the 6" top fold square card.
  • Paper pieced the florals from the same set -Embeliishment kit, matted surrounding a heart diecut, which was made using Brusho - Carmine color, then clear embossed it to make it a pretty focal piece.
  • Few colored, clear heat embossed heart wood veneers, Textured sequins from Papericious, few clear droplets are added for extra touch.

Watercolored Floral card

Hi Friends!!!

Am here today with another floral creation, a card this time. Watercoloring is my recent crush and added to it my calligraphic attempts :) Am enjoying both equally :)

Today's card is especially for the ongoing Altenew Challenge. The current inspiration challenge pic is such lovely and the beautiful colors made me to create this card.

My November Altenew win recently reached me...I have bought few stamps using the GC...One of which is this Oh-So-Beautiful...."Remember this" stamp set.

  • Gold heat embossed the florals and buds onto a watercolor paper and colored using my ever favorite Zig clean color brush pens and watercolored it.
  • Onto a pattern paper, stamped the smaller florals and colored with Faber castle polychromos with a lighter touch, so as to keep the beauty of the pp.
  • The pp is distressed at the edges using the scissors.
  • This pp has a beautiful printed script which faded on the middle and had florals on the corner.
  • The sentiment is such uplifting and i love to continue the same mood with the muted bg and 
  •  a focal using bright florals at a corner.
  • Fussy cut the watercolored florals and added using foam adhesives and few directly on the pp to create a dimension.
  • Stamped the sentiment from the same set and splattered black soot distress ink.
  • Added few clear droplets and matted this onto a A2 sized black top fold cardstock.

Hope you all like this card. Love to hear from you all!

Layered Love Card

Am back today with a  Layered Love card. Was inspired by soft delicate shades and the gold colors and so incorporated it into the card. 

Its a pretty mix of pattern papers with Gold polka dots and bold polka prints. Diecut a front panel and layered over a peach shade pp. 

The focal cluster is mounted on a resin frame with few diecut flourishes, diecut leaves and pretty mix of florals. 

Big bold red resin floral heart added as a pretty addition.

Crocheted lace with a floral cabochon and a white embossed vellum butterfly  are added with a word embellies.

A small wooden tag is distressed and the sentiment is added from Inspired by stamping.
