Bloom where you are planted (Craftyscrappers)

Hello friends!

Today I am at the Craftyscrappers blog showcasing some new releases from the month of March and a tutorial for the cards made using them. 
I have two cards using the new layered Create-a-flower (Rose) stencil.

To begin with, I took a white cardstock and coloured inks (Whichever available in my stash... you can see that I have clubbed the distress inks along with distress oxide) suitable for layering the flowers and the leaves. 

Once the layering was done, I fussy cut all the flowers and the leaves. 

 Next, I started assembling them to make the card. For the first card, I took three florals and few leaves. On a 4x6 side folding white card base, I adhered the first flower and a leaf directly onto it using liquid adhesive. 

Then I started layering the remaining elements using some foam adhesive.

Once the layering was done, I used the sentiment from the Bloom stamp set. 

Added a few sequins from my stash and lastly added some fine details using a fine black marker. 

Some final pictures


For my second card, I had just one flower and few leaves left. So I made a small 4"x4" notecard. On a white card, I repeatedly stamped the sentiment from the Damask stamp set using grey ink.  

 Next, I arranged the flower and the leaves on the card. Layered few of them with foam adhesive to create some dimension to the card. 

Lastly, added some fine details (Visible in close-ups) to the card using Nuvo drops. 

The final look of the card!

That's all from my end today!
Hope you like my cards, would love to hear from you!

Happy Easter

Hello friends!
I have one more Easter card here on my blog today. 
A unique, Egg-shaped shaker card!

Here's a look at the card!

To make this card,
I die-cut (using Itsy Bitsy Stitched oval die) an oval using a green coloured pattern paper from Lawn Fawn and a sheet of acetate.  I also die-cut two oval rings of white foam and one ring of green cardstock.  I layered the two foam rings, the green ring and the die-cut acetate by sandwiching the acetate in between the layers. 
Next, I added the sentiment and lots of colourful shaker elements to the pattern paper (I wanted to depict the Spring/Easter effect) and covered it with the rings with acetate. Next, I printed the bunny (a digital stamp from Craftin desert divas) and stamped the florals from Craftyscrappers, coloured with zig markers and fussy cut them. I also printed out some easter eggs from the internet, coloured with zig markers and fussy cut them too. Also, die-cut grass, using grass die from Lawn Fawn, from green coloured cardstocks. I assembled all the elements on the card, creating layers by sticking some of them directly on the card and some using foam adhesive. Lastly, added a tiny punched layered butterfly to the card and added fine details with a marker. 

Few close-ups!

Here's a short clip showing my card!

Easter Bunny in the basket (CDD)

Hello, peeps!
I have one more Easter card as my DT post for Craftin Desert Divas to be showcased today.

For my card here I am using two digital images from the store.

I coloured the images using Zig markers and fussy cut them both. I
 added some fine details to the basket using the same markers. 
Next, on a white card base, I masked the top part and coloured the bottom portion using Twisted citron distress ink. 
Next masked this distressed portion and using Salty ocean distress ink coloured the top part of the card. 
Added fine details on the grass using a paint brush and various green distress inks. Adhered the basket image on the card. 
Mounted the bunny overlapping a little over the basket using foam adhesive. 
Added the sentiment and lastly added few dew drops to complete my card.
