Happy Women’s Day!

Hiya Crafties!

I have a spring themed card dedicated to women all over the world.

Actually it applies to everyone! You don’t have to be Perfect to be Amazing!

Just be YOU!

(Unless being you is something you don’t look forward to, then you must change but only for yourself!)

I masked the center of the card panel with masking paper and then stamped the image by Simon Says Stamp.

I used the gold ink by Altenew.

The sentiment is by Jane’s Doodles.

I colored this beautiful image with my Zig clean color brush markers.

I finished off with some gold sequins and some black splatters!

How did you celebrate Women’s day?

A Shiny Congratulations!

Hey Crafties!

I love shine and sparkle, especially in my cards. So wherever I can, I try to use products that do so.

For my card today, I have again used WOW Gold Metal Rich Superfine embossing powder. I just love this powder.

The Mandala stamp by Studio Katia is so pretty. I had been wanting this stamp ever since I saw it.

I first watercolored the background in an ombré effect using Koi watercolors with different colors of green.
I then heat embossed the stamp with the above powder.

I also heat embossed the sentiment which is from the Altenew set- Celebrations. That is aother set which I had been drooling over since a long time.

The stripes stamp is by Craftyscrappers.

I finished off the card with green jewels, again from Studio Katia. Aren’t they so pretty?

Faux Metal Butterfly Embellishment Card

Hello Crafties!

Butterflies are a universal symbol for good things to come. Like snowflakes, every butterfly is unique.

For my card today, I have created a faux metal butterfly.

I have used WOW Metallic Gold Rich superfine embossing powder to achieve this metallic effect.

Stacking 3 layers of butterfly diecuts by Frantic Stamper, I heat embossed them 3 times with the above embossing powder.

This technique has been shown by Jennifer Mcguire. You can find her tutorial here.

The faux metal butterfly looks way more prettier in real.

The sentiment I used is by Jillibean Soup.

The background is watercolored with Koi watercolors.

I finished off the card with Ebony Nuvo drops.

Flowery Wishes

Hiya Crafties!

Heat embossing is such an integral part of card making. Be it heat embossing a sentiment, or a small image or a whole background! And it gives such beautiful effects!

For my card today, I heat embossed the entire background with Little birdie Gold embossing powder from Itsy bitsy.

The background stamp is by Simon Says Stamp named Flower Explosion. I love this stamp. It’s so pretty. And a must have for a coloring enthusiast.

Before embossing, I adhered a diecut circle of masking paper in the centre. This was so that I could add the sentiment in there.

The sentiment is by Craftyscrappers. I heat embossed it on black cardstock with white embossing powder.

I also added some green & gold paint splatters to bring everything together.

Lastly, I matted my panel with gold cardstock on an A2 card base.

And my card is done!!!
