Good News!!!

Hello everyone!!! I am soooo happy to share with you all that I am now part of the very first Creative Team of the Paper Curves UAE, a UAE/Dubai based online craft store and this is my first post for them. I am really happy and excited to be part of this team and have created a mixed media layout using the beautiful products I received in my kit.

The pretty flowers are from Prima Marketing and the beautiful chipboard pieces are from 49 and Market - Happy Moments white, which I have heat embossed using holographic embossing powder. I love how the circle piece acts as a frame around the picture.

(Can you see how gorgeous these heat embossed 'happy moments' look? :)

I did some random stamping using 49 and Market's stamp Gabi's Crackle Texture using black Archival ink. I feel this stamp set is perfect to add fun crackles to your projects.

I have also used different mediums like crackle paste, micro beads, lindy's sprays gesso and finnabair's acrylic paints for all the textures.

Here are the pictures showing the process 

 I started with a 12 x 12 patterned paper, after adhering it on a chipboard, applied clear gesso all over it, dried it and then applied a thin layer of white gesso leaving out some areas. 

To create my background, I added white crackle paste through stencils then randomnly stamped over it with Gabi's crackle texture stamp set on different parts of the layout.

I, then, gathered different mediums and embellishments to go with my design.

Next, I used lindy's sprays and finnabair's acrylic paint for some colors, kept adding   gesso and drying these until I was happy with the colors ( I added white gesso with pink acrylic paint for a soft look)

Finally, I embellished the layout with the beautiful flowers, heat embossed chipboard pieces,  photos with the circle frame and splatters of pink, white and blue colors all over it :)

I hope you like my layout :)

Materials Used:
Prima Marketing Flowers

Tale As Old As Time...

Hello Crafty Friends! Today I am sharing another shaker card. This one is made with a Rose digital stamp by Kit and Clowder. If you have followed me on Instagram you might remember that I colored this flower for The 30 Day coloring Challenge by Kathy Racoosin. When coloring this rose, it reminded me of the movie 'Beauty and the Beast'. 

I die cut patterned papers from DCWV to make the shaker panel for the card and filled the inside with red and gold sequins. 

The flower is colored with copic markers, fussy cut and glued onto the front and so are the stem and leaves.

 Can you see the tiny gold bow that I tied to the stem?

Hope you like it :)

Just for You!

Hello friends! Has been more than a month since I have posted on my blog as I had busied myself making personal projects for my family and also participated in Kathy Racoosin's 30 day coloring challenge. 

Anyways, I would like to share this shaker card with you which I made for Altenew's February Inspiration Challenge.

I was inspired by the color palette provided by the talented Debby Hughes.

I stamped 'Magnolias for Her' and colored the flowers with prisma color pencils using the no line coloring technique. The stem and vase are hand drawn and colored with copic markers.

For the shaker part of the card, I used vellum as I wanted the soft look and the flowers as the focal point of my card. The inside is filled with sequins.

Hope you like it.

A Perfect Bird-day!

Hi friends! This is my third card in a row. Seems like a good start for the year :)) Today I made another cute card with fun colors and the perfect greeting!

The adorable bird digi (also a freebie) is from Create A Smile stamps. She is colored with copic markers and is layered on a shaker card. I really enjoyed coloring her :) 

The vibrant background is done with water colors using smooshing techniques. I hope you can see the beautiful die cut inside.

To top it off, I filled the inside with glittery sequins and added the 'bird-day' sentiment.

Hope you like it :) :)

Surf's Up!

Hello everyone! Hope you're having a wonderful day!!!

I have this cute card to share with you :)

I started making this card by printing and coloring the adorable penguin freebies from Create A Smile ( they have some cool freebies on their website:). After coloring them with my copic markers I decided to ink the background with vibrant distress inks. 

The waves are die cuts from MFT which are also inked with Distress ink Evergreen Bough. Finally added some clouds and the 'hello' sentiment from Paper Smooches.

Truly enjoyed making this bright and cheerful card. Hope you like it too :)

Hello Friends! Happy New Year to you all!!!

Sharing today my first post for the year. I made this celebration themed card using the lovely digital stamp from All Dressed Up called 'Feeling Spoilt'

The image and background are colored using copic markers and the floor is inspired by the talented Sandy Allnock's tutorials. I love her work especially her coloring.

The card was kept simple. I wanted to focus on coloring as I'd like to improve it this year ( Don't worry i'll still continue with my mixed media and layered cards too :) 

Hope you like it :)

Tales of Us!

Hello everyone!

For my last post this year, I would like to share this chic mixed media card that I made today. I created this card for the 'More than Words' mini challenge where the theme is to include the word 'us' on your project.  

For this card, I have used white gesso, sprays, pastes, prima art stones, micro beads and lace to create various textures and layers. I kept the colors soft with a hint of gold shimmer and shine.

Here are some closer looks

Hope you like it :)

Thanks for reading.

Hello friends! Today I have this magical card to share with you . Its a shaker card with lots of colorful sequins.

The background is made using distress inks and I really enjoyed making it. The adorable pegasi are from Mama Elephant which I have stamped and die-cut. This is truly a versatile stamp set and I will be using it in many future birthday cards.

The pegasi and the castle are colored using copic markers and I used a white gel pen for a magical effect. Lastly, I decided to embellish the card with a few sequins on the background.

Hope u like it!!

Hello friends!  Hope you are doing well. Today I have a nautical themed card to show you all. I made this card for someone going on a voyage by sea.

I made the life ring by stacking several circle die cuts and tied them together using twine.

For the shaker part I stamped a ship and added micro beads inside.

The patterned papers are from prima marketing which I have layered on  kraft papers after distressing and adding glitter on the edges.

Hope you like it :)
