You are the Sunshine

Hello,

I am so happy to announce that I am part of Design Team for Southern Girls Challenge Blog. We have new challenge for the new year - Stitching - Faux or Real.

I have used a digital stamp - 'Flowers in my garden' from 'A day for Daisies' for my inspiration today.



I resized and printed the image and colored it with Zig Color Brush pens.


 I took a black card base and layered it with pattern paper from my scrap stash. I layered the image also with black card stock. I added two fish tail banner die cuts. I printed the sentiment and layered that also with black card stock. I finished of my card with few black and golden sequins on the sentiment banner.




Our sponsors for this challenge are:

I am a mother of two boys and a stay at home Mom. I started my paper crafting with making quilled cards for my friends and relatives. I later started using die cuts (I love my Sizzix Big Shot) and making layered cards. I love making scrapbook albums. I love playing with pattern papers in my cards and making my own flowers. I try to be perfect in my creations because of which I spend at least two days in planning alone about the layout and color combinations.

I would like to share a few of my creations. 



  •  Created for Graciellie Design using a digi image and PP from Indian company - Bob n Betty



  • A trifold album using PP from Bob n Betty. Fussy cut butterfly from another paper pack.



  • A tag using Graphic 45 papers for which I won a gift hamper from Graphic 45. I love fussy cutting.




  • A box card with handmade flowers.



A hexagonal explosion box using pattern paper by another Indian company - Nakshathra Designz, for which I was DT.



  • An easel card with box, tags for personal messages. 

  • A center stepper card, with fussy cut layering and handmade flowers.


I cannot stop myself from sharing one more creation for Conie Fong


  • My another passion is coloring especially with copic markers.


I will like to share a video of a scrapbook album I made for Nakshathra Designz


My resolution for 2018 is to try my hand in Mixed Media .

Center stepper card

Hello,

Today I am sharing a center stepper card I made recently.  I have used Bob n Betty  'Woodies' paper. I used few die cuts and embellished the card with my handmade flowers.







I fussy cut the flowers from the paper pack and added few foam tapes for dimension.




On the inner panel I added the sentiment. I printed the sentiment on my printer and foiled it on my Minc machine.



I added some chipboard pieces beneath the sentiment so that a space is created for a tag. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on the tag.




So that's the card for today. Till next time , Happy crafting!!

Halloween Witches!!!


Hi there,

Today I am sharing a DT project made for Conie Fong. I have used the 'Priscilla' digi stamp. I enjoyed coloring her and it is a very cute image.


I used Purple and Orange as main colors. I used Copic colors to color the image and fussy cut it.


I cut a Halloween back ground using my cameo. I inked a white card stock to get the orange dark background and the cameo cut on it. I layered this background with purple and black card stock. I added few pumpkins I fussy cut from G45 pattern paper.


I used foam tape to stick the image to get dimension. I added purple seam binding ribbon for the tag and finished with the sentiment.

Hope you like my project. Till next time - Happy Crafting!!!
