Thanks for all you have done.

Hello everyone
Today I have a new card for you all and this one is made for a Doctor..... The patient wanted me to make a colorful card for her doctor just to express how colorful her life is now after he healed her.....so on the inside it says "for all you have done"
I would like to put this card up at the following challenges
  1. Dl.ART - June Linky Challenge - Anything Goes
  2. Simon says stamp - Wednesday challenge- Emboss It
  3. Word Art Wednesday#288 289

  6. Cute Card Thursday #482 - pinks
  7. DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge#206 - Patriotic/ Thank you card
  8. Scrapyland challenge#68 - Embossing
I used the embossed resist technique for making this card. I white heat embossed all my little roses and leaves which are from the Mudra Wishing You stamp set. then I did a little distress ink blending using Spun sugar, Shaded Lilac, Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron.
I made a triple stamped card by diecutting 3 dies from Sspellbinders Nestabilities Scalloped Labels 1. Then, I also diecut white cardstock using same dies. The then trimmed the diecuts I cut from my front panel so that I could add them on the white mats. The largest one is flat, while the second one has a little dimension to it while the smallest has dimension foam behind it. I layed the entire panel on silver glitter cardstcok and then mounted everything on white standard A2 size cardbase (270gsm).
I added the sentiment on clear vellum with Black Achival ink and cut little banner ends. Finished my card with lots of sequins which are all from Mudra. My client requested a lot of sparkle and sequins and I was more than happy to oblige.......

Wishing you Safe Travels - See through shaker card.

Hello all  you wonderful people
Today I have a card for you. I have got really addicted to watercoloring technique and am making as many as I can. So this card is again for a special reason....I have a workout friend who is leaving for USA forever and Monday is her last last with us. So this one is for you Upasana.... I have know her only for a month...and got attached to her...you just connect so easily with some people. She was all emotional and so I have used a sentiment very carefully for this card.....I cleverly swapped a Farewell or W'll miss you with a "Wishing you Safe Travels"

The inspiration for this card comes from Tulle Shaker Cards by Jennifer Mcguire and you can know more about this by clicking the link HERE. I really loved the way she used Tulle...but I have used Clear acetate instead. So this my first try at this type of shaker card and it surely is fun.

I am putting this card up at
  1. Dl.ART - June Linky Challenge - Anything Goes
  2. Addicted to stamps and more- Challenge #246 - Anything Goes
  3. Penny Black and more challenges- June- Anything Goes
  4. The Ribbon Girl- June card challenge-Anything goes
  5. Simon says stamp - Wednesday challenge- Emboss It
  6. Word Art Wednesday#287 287
  7. Craft Addition Challenge - challenge #6 - Flowers flowers and yet more flowers
  8. Papericious June challenge- Try something new - This is my first attempt at such see through shaker card
  9. HLS June Watercolor Challenge - optional twist Masking
  10. Paru's Card making Challenge June- Interactive
So more on to my card, I stamped and heat embossed some flowers, buds and leaves on a watercolor cardstock using some Clear embossing powder. I used distress inks to watercolors all my images and once they dried, I fussy cut them out.
 To make this panel, I started with a standard A2 size card base(A) and 1 white cardstock piece cut to A2 size (B). I stacked them and arranged my spellbinders die and ran it thrice through my bigshot. Then, I cut a acetate sheet bigger than my frame and box folded it in half (Basically it helped me to give room for the shaker elements to move freely inside the window  I have just folded the acetate instead of using 2 pieces so there is no tape on the exposed side. Also, I gave it a small 1/8" gap between the 2 folds lining my edges. I hope I am able to convey well. Rest 3 sides are sealed with dimension foam..) I filled my window with some fun sequins, flowers and clear sparkle from Papericious and then sealed it with foam tape on 3 sides. I adhered this shaker window to my A panel carefully so that one no foam tape is visible from any where and the shaker window is correctly lined up on the edge. The frame is rhombus in shape but the shaker panel is square inside.


Then added more foam tape everwhere else and added the B part over it carefully.I added little black splatters on the front panel using black watercolor and then started layering my flowers and leaves. I did stamp my buds with Memento Dye ink by masking off the flowers and buds and quickly watercolored them as well.
Finished my card with the sentiment stamped with Black dye ink on white cardstock and sqeuins.
I hope you all like my card and will try it out.
That finished my card. I have a small shaker video for it and you can watch it to see how fun this is.

Wishing you a Speedy Recovery

Hello everyone
I am back today with yet another watercolor card but I have also used watercolor pencils this time. I did do a watercolor card yesterday and I got a lot of positive comments and reactions from a lot of crafters. So it really motivated me to do some more and this is one of the 2 cards I did today.

I started with heat embossing all the floral images I wanted to use on a watercolor cardstock (I do not have a fancy watercolor paper...just some local made) using Super fine Clear embossing powder from Ranger.
Then, I taped it to a writing pad I have using some washi tape and started watercoloring using distress inks. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Abondoned coral for the flowers and bud and Crushed olive and Twisted Cirton for the leaves.
I did color some more flowers in shades of purples and I will do another post and tell you more about them there.
Then, did add some depth to my flowers and leaved using some watercolor pencils....again not very fancy...I have old FabelCastle pencils...and I used Red, Orange, Yellow, Light and Dark Greens...Just basic colors. Once everything was air dried, I fussy cut them out.
I started with a 5.5" square card base (White Cardstock 270gsm). I then diecut a frame from a silver glitter cardstock using Spellbinders Nestabilites Scalloped Labels One using the largest die from a 5 1/4" square glitter cardstock. I then adhered this frame to the cardbase using some foam tape to give some dimension.
Then I started adding my flowers, buds and leaves to the card creating some layers. Added few of then with foam dots to create layers.
Thata all, I finishes my card with few sequins from Harvest Mix from Mudra and added my sentiment using some Momento Tuxedo Black ink. The sentiment used is from Mudra stamps Wishing you stamp set.

Sending you sunshine and happiness - Watercolor Card

Hello everyone
I am very excited about this one...I have a watercolor card to share with you. I have never made a watercolor card before...and this is my FIRST ATTEMPT and I hope you guys will be a little lenient with me just for this one time....
So let me show you what I have made...
I have made this card for my husband who is working far away from me on an oilfield rig....I called me up yesterday evening and he sounded very low and in a bad mood...so I thought why not send him some sunshine..... so dear husband this one is for you.. I hope it cheers you up a little.
I started making this card the first thing after I woke up this morning and started digging in my stamp stash and found this very beautiful stamp set from Mudra Stamps...which is a part of their new release.
I am putting this card up at the following challenges -
  1. Addicted to stamps and more- Challenge #246 - Anything Goes
  2. Craft Stamper Magazine- Take it Make it June- Anything Goes
  3. Craft Addition Challenge - challenge #6 - Flowers flowers and yet more flowers
  4. Dl.ART - June Linky Challenge - Anything Goes
  5. HLS - June Watercolor challenge - Optional Twist - Mask
  6. Mudra Challenge#10 - Triple Time stamping
  7. Paru's Card making Challenge June- Interactive
  8. Penny Black and more challenges- June- Anything Goes
  9. The Ribbon Girl- June card challenge-Anything goes
  10. ModSquadChallenge - Make it Square
I started with a 53/4" square watercolor cardstock. I did some clear heat embossing using the beautiful floral stamps from the Simply Floral Stamp set and made my floral frame. The, I started watercoloring all the stamp images using Distress inks.
 I used Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral, Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar,  Crushed Olive, Squeezed Lemonade, Tumbles Glass, Hickory Smoke and Twisted Citron. I did watercolor in layers. I did individual petals and kept adding layers.
It took me 2 hours to do all the watercoloring. After, I was happy with it, I watercolored  the background with Tumbled Glass Distress inks and gave some dimension using Hickory Smoke Distress inks. I stamped my sentiment using Black Archival ink.
Then was the fun part, I created a triple layer card from the watercolored background and made the center part into a shaker window filling it up fun sequins also from Mudra and some are from my stash. I used a grey beige cardstock to created the triple layer card.
 Once, I assembled everything, I added a white 6"cardbase and finished the card with some more sequins on the top.
