Have an Egg-cellent Easter!

I have been playing with Simon Says Stamp’s Fresh Bloom collection die called Wavy Egg. And I made this Easter card.

Hello and welcome back to my blog. Hope you are having a great day. I have been a bit busy with release projects and other projects over past week, I am going away today for a week to India. I am going to attend a wedding of a cousin of my husband. I am excited to attend a wedding after a long time. Looking forward to the celebrations and share some pictures over the weekend. So there will be no post from me till Wednesday following week. I will be back in full force from Thursday 27th March.

Here is the Easter card I made today.

So I sponged a rainbow of Distress Oxide inks on white cardstock, then used the Wavy Egg to die cut them out. I also die cut a small oval die upon which I adhered the wavy pieces to make the full eggs. I spattered clean clear water to get texture on the eggs.

For the background I embossed the largest Stitched Wonky Rectangle die on Fog cardstock panel. Adhered this on the card front and arranged and glued the eggs on the bottom of the card front.

The sentiment is from Bunny Wishes stamp set. I stamped this directly on the fog panel using Versafine Onyx black ink. To frame the sentiment, I used the small flower image from Bunny Wishes stamp set. I stamped, coloured with copics and hand cut them out to adhere using foam adhesives. Finally a few white Nuvo crystal drops to complete the card.

Wishing You Great Things!

I have been playing with the new background stamp from Simon Says Stamp called Pretty Peonies. I wanted to create a layered mixed media type background using it. The inspiration came from this gorgeous card by Debby Hughes she made for SSS blog hop. Debby used Daniel Smith watercolours and then MoonStone glimmer paste on the Triangle Blast stencil. I used both distress oxide and distress inks for the background and crackle paste on the stencil.

Hello lovelies, Welcome to my blog. Here is my project I am sharing today.

I started with white heat embossing the Pretty Peonies background stamp on the textured side of distress watercolour paper. Then I smooshed the background panel on Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn and Luck Clover distress oxide inks. One colour at a time and drying between each colour.

Then I sponged Mowed Lawn, Lucky Clover and Crushed Olive distress inks randomly as I wanted more intense colour to the chalky oxides. I also sponged Forest Moss to add depth to the panel.

Once dry, I used the Triangle Blast stencil and added Crackle paste randomly on the panel on two areas. Also spattered some white paint all over the panel to add to texture on the panel as if there is not enough!

The sentiment is from CZ design Great Things stamp set which I stamped in black ink, die cut using the coordinating die. The smaller sentiment from the stamp set is white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock. I adhered them on the top centre of the panel using foam adhesives. The panel is adhered to the card base using craft foam.

I Wheelie Like You

It feels like very long since I blogged. But my last post was Saturday. I don’t know why I feel so. In the mean time, I have making lots of projects for release next month. So I cannot share any this month. I am also going away for a week next week. So I have lots of catch up to do. I am nearly there. Just couple more to go.

Today I have a cute card to share using Taylored Expressions Punny Notes stamp set and coordinating dies. This set is adorable. There are eight cute images and coordinating punny sentiments. This set also has coordinating dies.

Punny Notes Stamp & Die Set

I used only the car image and the coordinating sentiment to make my card.

So I stamped six of the car image on Sugar Cube cardstock using TE Oreo hybrid ink. Then coloured them using copic markers in rainbow colours. Then using the coordinating die, I die cut them all out. Then the question is how I want to place them on the card front. I debated if I want to line them up or die cut a panel using TE Peek A Boo circle die and have the cars inside the circle die cuts so on…. When I read the sentiment, it came upon my brain to form a circle with the car images like a wheelie! Yay!

So I die cut a Sugar Cube panel using Petite Scallop Rectangle die, the largest one. Then using the largest Inside Scallop Circle die, I die cut a circle on the top centre of the panel. I guess you could die cut using a circle die as well. This is my card front panel.

On the card base front, I masked the edges and sponged Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire. This blend will show up through the inside scallop circle die cut on the front panel. So I adhered the panel using foam adhesive for dimension on the card base. I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the Inside Scallop Circle using MISTI. Then arranged the card around the perimeter of the circle using foam adhesives. Finally a few white Nuvo glossy drops to finish the card.
