Floral Frame Birthday

Hello everyone! I'm here to share a quick card that I made recently.

 I was inspired by a card and technique that Joanna of Inspired By Stamping had shared about a month back. Here's a link to her blog post. I used the small flowers and leaves from the Inspired By Stamping - Just For You and Love Sentiments stamp set. I used water-based markers to stamp the image on watercolor cardstock. Then I used a darker shade marker to add some shadows and blended it a wet brush with the ink of the lighter color. I hope this makes sense. For leaves, I just smoothed the color out - didn't add a darker shade, as I liked this color better. I added a few dots here and there with the lighter color marker. The sentiment is from the Inspired By Stamping Sun-Ripened Pear stamp set. I mounted it on coral card base, as it matched the color perfectly. This card reminds me of the floral embroidered handkerchiefs.

Hello everyone!! Hope you all had a great weekend. I'm here with a quick post to share a card that I made recently.

This card front is another freebie  that Joanna had sent out in the Inspired By Stamping newsletter yesterday. I took a printout of the card front and colored it with my copics. I used Y38, Y35 and YR31 to color the yellow part of the flower, E57 and E31 for the flower center, G99, YG67, YG63 and YG61 to color the leaves and BG49, BG15and BG11 to color the butterfly.

Butterfly

Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying your weekend.I have a card to share with you all today.


This butterfly along with the quote is one of the free card fronts that Joanna had sent out in the Inspired By Stamping newsletter today. I took a printout of the card front and colored it with my copics. I used YR68, Y38 and Y35 to color the butterfly. 


The frame was cut on my Cricut Explore and colored with YR38 to match the exact color. I wrapped a brown twine around the panel for some added interest.  

Hope you like this card. Do check out the giveaway and sale at the Inspired By Stamping blog.

Happy Mother's day to all the lovely mothers out there. Big hugs to all having a difficult time right now.

Flowering Crabapple Branches

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great week so far. I'm here to share a Spring inspired card.

 The weather here was quite unusual this year. We had few days with warm temperature immediately followed by very cold days in April. Now, it's starting to get warmer. Many trees bloomed in March/April and it was a beautiful sight. I was particularly amazed to see this tree (I think it is crabapple tree, not sure though. If you know, please let me know.) which had pink buds and white flowers.


As soon as I saw this, I was reminded of Power Poppy by Marcella's Happy Crabapple Stamp Set/ Flowering Branches Digital Stamp Set and bought the digi stamp immediately. The advantage of using digis is that it can be used instantly after buying and you can zoom in or zoom out all you want. I zoomed in to get a nice view of the beautiful flowers, printed it on cardstock and colored it with Crayola pencils with no-line technique. I stamped the sentiment from Our Dailly Bread Designs - Blossom stamp set. I cut out a frame with brown card stock and made this into a shaker card with acetate window. I used Inspired By Stamping - Strawberry Slush sequin mix and few colors from my stash.

Joy To You And Yours

Hello everyone! I'm here with a quick Christmas card that I had made previously but couldn't share here on my blog then.


I stamped the Christmas Tree from Unity Stamps' From Our Heart To Yours set and colored it with Copics. I used a golden gel pen and Nuvo drops in Pale Gold and Autumn Red on the stars and the ornaments. I fussy cut it and adhered it onto a tag, which was a gift from one of my friends. I adhered the tag on to ivory card base and stamped the sentiment "Joy to you and yours" from the same stamp set with Hero Arts Red Royal ink. I added a red bow on top of the tag.

That's it. It's a simple card. This is an easy and beautiful way to convert the tags in to cards. Here are a few other cards that I made with the tags that I had made earlier.

Morning Glories With Love

Hello everyone! I'm here to share a quick card that I made today.

Here's my card:


I recently bought the Altenew Morning Glory stamp sets (there are 2 small sets here and here) from the GC that I had won from the Altenew blog. I didn't have a chance to play with them till today. So I stamped the 3 different flowers from the 2 sets with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio and colored them with my Crayola pencils. This style of coloring is inspired by the beautiful works of Marika Rahtu. If you haven't checked her works yet, I highly recommend you to do so immediately.

Here's a close up of the flowers:


The sentiment is also from one of the Morning Glory stamp sets. The banner is from Winnie & Walter The Big, The Bold and The Extras stamp set, which I stamped with Distress Ink Antique Linen and added shading with pencils. I added drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops - Pale Gold and few pearls in teal. I the banner and the flowers using foam tape on to black cardstock and cut the bottom of the panel in a curve. I inked the lower half of a white card base with Distress Ink Antique Linen and adhered the black card panel on to it

That's it. Do you like this card? Please do let me know your thoughts.
