In Love with Cards !!!

Hello Everyone 

Just another card. This piece of work carries lots of details and I really Liked the final outcome.

Warning - Picture heavy post ( I guess most of my post comes with this warning :P )

Have a look -


Back ground is super inky. There is loads of stamping , distressing and embossing done on the background. 
For background I have used a plain white card stock ..( Firstly ) Stamped  it with gathered twigs distress inks & stamp which I have used is  music vintage script. Then I distressed the whole background using fried burlap distress inks and finally distressed the edges with vintage photo .


Here comes the second layer of stamping - for this I  have used Hero arts clings stamps. I have stamped these flower patterns with rusty hinge distress inks and it looks absolutely perfect and totally loved the color combinations . 

And Lastly I have stamped these butterflies using versamark embossing ink & gold embossing powder . Heat set it !



After embossing I have colored the stamped background with gold acrylic color added some glitter and little bit of pencil shading with orange color . And for butterflies I have used ripe permission and Gathered twigs distress inks to color and Finally I have covered the butterflies with a coat of glossy accents .


And finally coming over to the love of my Hand made flowers , small ones are punched and the big one I have used a Die . Love the big flower distressed it with vintage photo and lastly as always glimmer misted .Oops I forgot to mention have added cute little pearl head pins absolutely adorable ...



Sentiment is from Kaisercraft .!! Pheww that was all for today, Hope you all liked it .

I had the amazing opportunity and a golden chance to work with some talented and expert crafters and to be able to share my work with you all. I wish Lulupu  - A very happy First birthday!! 
  
March is going to be fun at Lulupu - The Craft Lounge! There will be many giveaways and tonnes of fun so do ensure you follow Lulupu all around FB, Twitter, Pinterest and Youtube! To kick start the celebration we have a Lulupu Design Team Blog Hop along with the monthly challenge.

And now's let's talk about my project for Lulupu Challenge #10 - Let's Celebrate.

 As the challenge suggests, we were to take inspiration from a fellow Design Team member and create a project that celebrates.... well... just about anything. My inspiration was Karuna's Di Side step card.


What I loved about this card was the special folds and of course yellow colour (so in love with yellow colour these days :P). And this gives me a chance to create my second ever side step card .

Since the theme this month is celebration , I thought to make a card saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!

                                                                Here's my Side step card !!
The base of the this card was the regular white card stock , & again I have used the gorgeous Follow your Heart Be Amazing 6x6 paper pad and Washi tape.


These super cute fishes have been stamped using Micia - fishy love stamp and fussy cut. I have hand drawn and fussy cut  these little adorable caps . Isn't it cute ?


Balloons have been simply punched and I have pasted the balloons over raffia and tied them with a ribbon to make a bunch .

Ooops! I forgot to mention the Cake!! It has been hand drawn and fussy cut too.


So , here is my inspired project with Celebration theme.
Hope you all like it !!

Here is the list to track you Blog Hop which will end on 15th March, you still have time to enter you name for the exciting blog hop here

Make a Wish

Good Morning Everyone !!

Another take on Shabby chic. I never understood the definition of Shabby Chic - layering , softer shades of pinks , neutrals , vintage etc etc etc, but I know one thing I love shabby chic .

Well I may have not done justice to this  but this is my version of shabby chic. So please avoid if you don't like it !!
Have a look ...


I know its not exactly shabby chic but i still find it somehow :P
There is so much of detailing to this card . First the back ground , take a closer view 


Its a super inky background . I started with masking first and for this i have used the gorgeous stencils from TCW which I got them from Die cuts and More . Stencils which i have used are Damask and chevron both from TCW . Secondly i distress the whole background with seedless preserves distress ink , for masking I used dusty concord and shaded lilac distress inks from Rangers . And lastly I dry embossed my background with Spell binders M- bossabilities.


All the flowers are handmade , I am so much in love making handmade flowers .

Closer view 

All the flower are colored using distress inks. And I have misted the flower using Ranger mister gumball pink color , although its not visible but in person its looks absolutely gorgeous, for the flourish I have used Memory box elegant scrolls .


Hope you all like it !!

Sorry for the picture heavy post 

Love 
Isha
