Peony Scrolls Card #1

Hey Guys!I've been crafting a lot these days and I really like it! So for today's card, I used the beautiful peony scroll stamps from Altnew. They are my first set of Altnew stamps that I picked up from Crafters Corner a while ago and I'm going to get the most use out of them. So I made 2 A-6 cards with envelopes. I used 2 different patterned papers from my stash and cut them to 4*6 inches. After adhering them to the base, I added a few distress ink splatters of fossilised amber and abandoned coral. I stamped the stamps multiple times on a piece of scrap, coloured in with my acrylic colours and finally fussy cut them. This took nearly 3 hours to colour and cut but it was worth the effort. I adhered them to the background, added a hand written sentiment and a few sequins. Here are a few closeups.

Recycled Tag No.2

Hey Guys!
So I'm back and today's post is a part of the recycling card series and I'm sharing a mini tutorial. So for today, I've used just one card to make the tags. Hope you enjoy the tutorial!

Step 1- Cut out four tags from the card base.

Step 2- Prep your base. Since I didn't have gesso, I used my modelling paste in a few places and also used a stencil with it. 
Step 3- I added color to the tags. I wanted to create two different color tags. So I added colors and DI's to highlight the texture formed by the stencil.
Step 4- Next I used a few scraps of paper and colored them with DI's mermaid lagoon and cracked pistachio. Once they got dried, I stamped different background stamps to give different patterns. Once they were done, I rolled them up into rolls.

Step 5-  Cut and stick the rolls in the shape of a tree. The last step is to EMBELLISH! So i went a little crazy here. I added sequins, a quilled pot, star on the top and drew snowflakes with my 3D outliners. And I added a piece of ribbon to complete the tag. Here are a few closeups.

Hey guys! So I'm back with my second post for the day! Today I've made a recycled card from an old wedding invitation card. So here in India, we have weddings on a grand scale and the cards are grand as well. Over the years I've collected so many wedding cards and now its time to use them all. I will be doing a series on them soon. So for this tag, I attached a few pieces of scrap with modelling paste,added color with DI(worm lipstick and abandoned coral),added a few pieces of lace,doily,ribbon, hot glue embellishments and sequins. I stamped the bear from the Scrapberry's my little bear collection that I recently purchased from Crafters Corner. Lastly to finish it off, I added the sentiment LOVE. Here are the closeups.

Quilted Design Card

Hey guys, So I'm back with another post. So for this card, I got inspired by a video of thefrugalcrafter on youtube. I love her videos, they are so informative and helpful. So she made a video on how to make a quilted backgroud with stamps but since I didn't have those stamps, I just made my own design and coloured in with my favourite water color pencils and basic sketch pens. I used the sentiment from the set which is one of the new stamp sets that I had ordered from Crafters Corner. Here are a few pics.

Galaxy shaker card

Hey Guys!
Today I'm back again with a shaker card.I saw a video on youtube a while ago on how to make a background shaker card and wanted to do so ever since.This is the card.
For the background,I painted a galaxy using my acrylic paints and for the shaker,I used different silver colored sequins and gems so that they represent stars.I also punch out some stars from a silver foil since I did not have star sequins.Lastly,I wrote the sentiment- LIGHTS WILL GUIDE YOU HOME as I felt it would suit the background perfectly.Here are a few closeups.I am sorry for the bad camera quality,will surely get better with time (:
