So Happy For You

Hello everyone!! Today I have another floral card to share.  I was envisioning this kind of gradient background since quite some time. Finally I got the look that I had in mind. The stencil used here is from Craftslane. I used black soot and weathered wood distress inks to get this background.
The sentiment is heat embossed using ranger black embossing powder. The stamp set used is Penny Black. 

The floral cluster was stamped on glossy paper and then fussy cut. The stamp set used is Avery Elle Petals & Stems. (I love this one!!) The watering can is a digi from the net which I printed n cut out and again used same distress inks to color it.

That's all for today. Have a great day!!

Altenew Vintage Roses stamp

Hello everyone!! Today I am posting after a long time. I hardly find time any for crafting with my little one around. But trust me, its a lovely feeling and I am loving being a full time mommy.
Inspite of such busy schedules I managed to lay my hands on some of the new stamps and was very eager to try them out. One such stamp set is the Altenew Vintage Roses stamp which is very sought after by stampers nowadays. It was a tough task to play with this stamp set as it is a bit tricky and requires a lot of practice. After some successful and not so successful trials I managed to get some pretty roses. I decided to fussy cut and use the good ones to make a card. At the same time I tried out another stamp set which is WPlus9 Pretty Little Peonies..... so my card has a mix of elements from both these pretty sets. The sentiment I heat embossed using Ranger Gold embossing powder. I have also use a golden paper for matting to give a golden outline to the main card piece.

Below is a snapshot of the trials I did. I used watercolor paper, glossy paper and normal paper. And the inks I tried were Archival inks and Memento inks. In case you have any queries, I would be happy to help you out.
One of my crafter friends Neha Bhatt has also done her review on this stamp set. If you like to read her post, please visit her blog here.

Thanks for dropping by. Do let me know your views on the card.

Thinking of You - Avery Elle Stamps

Hi. Today's card has a lot of stamping and fussy cutting in it. I used my new Avery Elle Stamp set - Petals & Stems. I absolutely love this floral stamp set. It's so much my type...all about flowers. I did a bit of stencilling for the background. This stencil is from Craftslane. I love their stencils. Fabulous results and they are dirt cheap.

Napkin Fold Card with Handmade Flowers

This is a 10 x 10" Napkin fold card that I made recently. I have used bright colored pattern papers from DCWV paper stack.

This is how it looks when opened and laid flat. I have used MS around the page punch for the card base and the band.

 All the flowers that you see here, big small and tiny fillers, are handmade by me. The leaves are handcut and scrunched to give a natural look.
