A Bouquet of Flowers

Hello friends...

Today I am here to share a new card I made with IBS  Mother's Day Bouquet stamp set..
I love the floral bouquet image from this stamp set...& decided to use it on this new card..
I usually like to use bright colors but this time I decided to go with the softer colors...

I colored in the image with some soft distress ink colors & cut it in oval.
Next I die cut a decorative oval frame & inked it.. I adhered the colored image in the frame & decorated it with pearls... I die cut 2 more pieces for the background & inked them with soft pink color...I attached the bigger die cut on the pattern paper & used foam adhesive to layer the smalller one on top...Then I adhered the floral frame on top with some more foam adhesive...


I have added some pearl dots around the colored image to add a little more interest...


I decorated one corner of the frame with some handmade flowers.. & the opposite corner with a glittered butterfly...


I have added some more pearls & rhinestones to to the die cuts to dress up the card...
Thank you for visiting... see you soon with my next post...

Always Remember

Hello friends...

Has it ever happened to you that you have to write a note & you can't find a pen or paper...
I had faced this in the past but after I started using my magnetic post-it-notes I always know where to find something to write my little notes or add to my grocery list... :)

When my last  post-it-note got over I decided to make a new one instead of refilling it... small perks of being a crafter... I get to make & use new  things :D

So here is the new design that I made... 
I have used a die cut pattern paper & chipboard for my base ... I used 2 strips cut from magnetic sheet on the back.. I wanted to make it a little inspirational so I die cut a card stock with a medium sized die from Fancy Labels 2 Die, inked it & stamped the sentiment from Everyday Greetings... This is a great stamp set with some great paragraph sentiments for various occasions...

I needed a place for my pen so that I don't have to go searching for a pen everytime I had to jot down something...
I decided to hang the pen with the help of a ribbon... I punched a small hole in the top corner, threaded the ribbon through it & used a pearl brad to secure it & also to hide the hole...
I have threaded a pearl through the other end of the ribbon & secured with a knot.. this helps to hang my pen nicely ... & it can fit any size as long as the have this clip thing  :D

 I love flowers so I decorated it with a die cut flourish corner, some flowers & string of pearls.
I can easily use another post-it-note to refill this when it gets over.. or create a new one if I get bored with this one  ;)

I hope you like my little project

Mother's Day Gift Box

Hello Friends,

Mother's day is coming... have you thought about what you will be gifting her?
Mothers are special & so they deserve something really special...
My mom is also into arts & crafts & she has always been my inspiration...& so I always like to gift her something I create... I feel that handmade gifts have that love & personal touch which makes them extra special...

This time I have made a decorated mdf box for her... I have used some bright spring colors for this box...
I took a square mdf box & painted it with 2 coats of black acrylic color... after the paint dried I cut out & adhered the pattern papers on all sided & the lid with mod podge & let it dry.. next I applied 2 coats of mod podge  to seal in the papers & make it waterproof...
Now comes the fun part of decorating it...
I started with a paragraph sentiment from Mother's Day Bouquet & stamped it on an inked  die cut...
This stamp set has some great sentiments & quotes  perfect for moms...& it also has a beautiful bouquet stamp...
I adhered the sentiment die cut on foam dots & added 2 heart rhinestones for some bling....
& then I arranged some flowers & flourishes on the top corner & added some pearls...

Cards & Coloring

Hello friends...

I am back after a long holiday...
I hope you all had a colorful & fun filled holi...
It took me sometime to get back to work..& then I saw DT Call at The Paper Shelter

I wanted to give it a try so I made a new card with Sara Kay digital free coloring page that I had...

The image was printed with a laser printer & then colored with distress inks & water brush..
Then I highlighted some fabric patterns on the image with a white gel pen..
I have done a lot of inking on the background pattern papers & the die cuts...
I love how distress inks change the look of papers & help in adding more depth to the project...
The card is embellished with some handmade flowers & rhinestones..






The pattern paper has little ladybugs so I added one ladybug to my flower arrangement too  :)
