Flora & Fauna: Arctic Starry Night

Hello crafty friends! I want to share with you my Christmas cards today with so adorable Flora & Fauna Arctic Starry Night stamp set – it really caught my eye!

Here is what I came up with:
For my first card, I created a snowy night background with the Arctic Starry Night set. It is so lovely set!! I heat embossed (a kind of) constellations and trees onto watercolour paper panel in white first, and then coloured the background with Peerless watercolors. I added white ink splatters on it. Makes it look like snow or stars in the night sky.
I stamped & lightly watercoloured three polar bears, then fussy cut them. Once the background panel was completely dry, I mounted it on white card base using double sided tape first, and then added polar bears on it using foam tape.

For my second card, I made a simply watercolour card. I just repeatedly stamped trees on watercolour panel in black, and then roughly watercoloured each tree using Peerless watercolors.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Neat and Tangled: Merry & Bright

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
I am guest designing with Neat and Tangled this month. I am so happy to be a part of this amazing company once again!!

Today I want to share with you my fun Christmas card with so adorable Beary Merry Stamp Set and the Merry and Bright Nice and Neat Die.

Here is what I came up with:
I started by stamping cute polar bear and candy cane from the Beary Merry set on watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. I then watercoloured and fussy cut them. You can use the matching dies to cut stamped images. It is so much easier than use scissors. ;)
For the snowy night background, I ink blended on watercolour paper panel with Mermaid Lagoon, Faded Jean, Seedless Preserves, Black Soot Distress inks and mini blending tool, and then added white ink splatters all around the panel. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Merry & Bright” from white card stock fine times, and then stacked them up using glue pen.
Once the panel was completely dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment die cut and the polar bear holding a candy cane on the card front using foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Altenew: Happy Holidays

Happy Thursday crafty friends!
I’m up on the Altenew blog with my Christmas card to share with you using the Build-A-Flower: Poinsettia along with other products. The poinsettia is one of the plants traditionally use as Christmas decoration so it makes me feel excited about Christmas approaching!!
To create this card, I stamped & die cut the layered poinsettia from the Altenew Build-A-Flower: Poinsettia set. I used (from light to dark) Ruby Red, Velvet, Dark Chocolate dye inks for solid images and then Jet Black dye ink for outlined image. I then heat embossed the sentiment from the Altenew Holiday Wishes set on dark brown card stock in white, and then trimmed it down as a small banner.
For the background, I die cut the Striped Leaf Cover from kraft card stock, and then mounted the “Striped Leaf” panel on kraft card base using foam tape. I added white ink splatters here and there. I added Gold Fenstone Decorative, poinsettia die cut, and sentiment banner in order using foam tape as well. To finish it off, I added white dots using Nuvo Simply White Crystal Drops.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Altenew Stamp Focus: Just Because

Happy Monday crafty friends! I hope you had a wonderful World Card Making Day last weekend. I’m up on the Altenew blog with my three floral cards using the newly released (and so gorgeous) Altenew Just Because stamp set. I love this set so much!!

For my first card, I made a watercolour card using watercolour pencils and water brush. I stamped larger arch-shaped flower bouquet image from the Altenew Just Because set on watercolor paper panel using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink, coloured them with watercolour pencils, and then brushed them with water brush. For the sentiment, I used the word “hugs” in the Altenew Script Words die set.

For my second card, I created a watercolour smoosh background – This is a very pretty and unpredictable watercolour background technique!! I stamped a flower bouquet and sentiment from the Just Because set on the centre of an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink. Once the inked panel was dry, I applied a watercolour wash on the panel using some Distress inks and a water brush.
Once the watercoloured panel was completely dry, I die cut the word “XO” from the panel using the Altenew Bold Alphabet die set. I mounted the panel on white card base using glue tape first, and then added the word dies using foam tape.

For my last card, I coloured the flowers with the Artist markers along with some Copic markers. I stamped and coloured a flower bouquet, cut a top part of the panel, and then mounted it on top-folded Lagoon card base using foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
