Love You More Than Coffee!

Hello friends,

I am back again with one of my favorite hand colored image. The digital image is from Mo's Digital Pencil. I found this image very cute and coloring it was a lot of fun. I have used copic markers to color it.

Finally I layered some paper, a vellum piece for a softer look, and, to finish it off, I embellished it with some rhinestones.

Hope you like it :)

Happy Halloween!

Hello Friends!

Sharing another card with hand colored image. This one is a spooky Halloween card I made today using the cute image from Make It Crafty :)

For the background I colored the sun with distress inks, then masked it with a circle and started adding layers of inks until I achieved the look I wanted :)

I have used wink of stella on the sky and on her dress for a shimmer look:)

Hope you like it :)

Easel Drawer Card!

Hello Friends

Hope you are having fun crafting!!!  Today I am sharing with you an easy tutorial to make a 5½  x 5 ½ Drawer Easel cardThis is really easy to make and the end product looks really amazing. Hope you guys like it :)

You will need:

-Heavy Cardstock
Two 8 ½  x 7 inch ( A)
One 8 ½ X 8 ¼ inch (B)
One 5 ½ X 11 inch (C)
One 5 ½   X 5 ½ inch (D)
-Scoring Board.

First we are going to make the sleeve of the drawer :)

Take cardstock A and, with the 7 inch short side on the left, score at 1 ½ inch. Repeat along the three sides, leaving the last 8 and half inches side as it is. Repeat the same with the second cardstock A.

Cut the two tabs, fold and burnish the creases. Again repeat the same with second cardstock A as well.

Next glue the tabs with a strong adhesive.

The two boxes are ready :)

Now attach the boxes together by applying glue around the outside of one box and gluing it inside the other. 

This completes the sleeve :)

Now to make the drawer:

Take cardstock B and score at  1 and a half inch on all four sides.

Cut the tabs as shown in the picture, burnish the creases and fold up to form the box. Secure with strong adhesive.

Slide your box into the sleeve. The drawer box card is almost ready :)

Now to make our easel card:

Take cardstock C. Score the long side at 5 ½ and 8 ¼ inches and make mountain folds on both scored lines. 

Attach cardstock D as shown and you are done  :)

Decorate as you like.

I have embellished my card with patterned papers, wet embossed butterfly, diecuts and flowers :)

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and will give it a try! 

Happy Crafting :) :)
