Concord and 9th.

A set of Butterfly cards!

Happy Friday everyone,
I have couple of cards to share with you. I placed my very first order with Concord and 9th couple of weeks ago. I have been looking at their designs for  a while now and love their innovative approach to stamps and dies. This release I could not resist the Butterfly Beauty stamp set and the Say Hello stamp set and dies. So the sets came home yesterday. I inked them up this morning and had fun making these two cards. Lord, I love that watercolour butterfly image. So beautiful when stamped with ink. The image gives you the watercolour look to the butterfly and texture as well. I had so much fun inking up the stamp with lots of colours. But the Hero Arts Neon Ombre Green to Blue was my favourite of all.  Both my cards today feature Hero Arts Neon Green to Blue ink with the Butterfly Beauty stamp set. Here is the first card.
Instructions:

1. I stamped the watercolour background butterfly stamp using the HA Neon Ombre ink randomly on a white card stock panel covering the entire panel.
2. Then I stamped the outline butterfly image using Versafine Onyx Black ink over the background images and heat embossed them all.
3. Then I used the smaller solid butterflies from the stamp set to stamp in black ink and heat embossed the images as well.
4. The sentiment is white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock and adhered to the panel.
5. The panel is adhered to the white card base and embellished with sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I love the bright neon green and blues colours, texture from the stamp and watercolour effect on the card. The background butterfly stamp is like a jackpot. Its got everything without having to put any effort.

For my second card, I used this background butterfly stamp for the background of the card and the outline image as the focal point.

Butterfly card 2//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Instructions:
1. On the card front, I stamped the background butterfly image using the HA neon ombre ink.
2. On a watercolour paper, I black heat embossed the outline butterfly image and watercoloured using blue, green and grey Zig clean colour pens.
3. I die cut the watercolour panel using the second largest stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp.
4. I adhered this panel on the card front using foam adhesives.
5. The sentiment is white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock, trimmed and adhered on the centre of the focal butterfly using foam adhesives.
6. Finally embellished with a few Sparkly Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
As always couple of closeups of the card.
I really love Concord and 9th designs. I know a lot of designers love the company. But I had to see it myself. It took me long to make an order with them and play with their design. I am glad I did. I have the dies and another bundle to play with over the weekend. Another favourite stamp company to my list.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

50dollar_voucher_600px
I decided to experiment design aspect with this challenge. I wanted to make stationary style cards by stamping and creating my own patterns. And the theme for the cards are Easter. Yes I made a set of two cards.
I used a few stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp on these cards. Considering the Easter theme, I wanted florals, easter images and some solid images. I picked Melody’s Easter, Springtime Critters, Winter Flowers, Nutty About You, Blooming Day and Summer Garden stamp sets.

I used one white panel and one Fog card stock panel to stamp the images. Started with the largest image, I stamped clusters of images covering the entire panel leaving a few blank spaces. Most images are outline images but I also stamped some solid images. Most of the images are stamped overlapping each other. So there is no method to the madness. I kept stamping until I was happy with how the panels looked. I only coloured the leaves only using YG23 copic marker.

Then I trimmed the panels using the second largest die from Hero Arts Infinity rectangle die set. I adhered the white panel on fog card base and fog panel on white card base using foam adhesive. Sentiment is white heat embossed on a strip of black card stock and adhered as shown. No embellishments on the card as they are stationary styled card.

Here are the photos of the cards and their closeups.

All the supplies used to make the cards are listed below.

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Have a Magical Day – Tutorial!

Happy Sunday everyone! I have a card tutorial to share today. This card is made using Taylored Expressions stamp set called Magical Days stamp and die combo. I made this card for the release in the month of Janurary 2017. 
I received a request for a tutorial for this card. Sorry it took me so long to make it. It is here now. I decided to use the same process but change a little to make another card. I changed the colour, less details, less embellishments and slightly bigger panels. Here is the new card.

Magical day card1//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js


Instructions:
1. I stamped and coloured the dragons from Magical Days stamp and die combo using copic markers. I used R20, R21, R22, YG01, YG21, YG17, YG23 and YG25.
2. For the background, I sponged distress inks – Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold, Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint. I loooove the colours together. One of my favourite colour combo.
3. I stamped the Cloud Nine background stamp on the sponged panel using Taylored Expressions Sugar Cube white pigment ink.
4. I die cut this panel using the third largest stitched rectangle die and another white panel using the largest stitched rectangle die from Stitched Rectangle Stacklets.
5. I die cut the dragons using the coordinating dies and white heat embossed the sentiment on Oreo cardstock which I then die cut using the smallest banner die from Banner Stacklets 4.
6. To assemble the card, I adhered the sponged panel on the white panel using foam adhesive, the dragons on the sponged panel using foam adhesives as well.
7. The completed panel on the Sugar Cube card base flush and sentiment flush on the sponged panel.

8. I did not add enamel dots on this card. You can add Taylored Expressions Oreo enamel shapes is you wish.

I am showcasing some more new products today. First up is Spring Grumplings stamp set and dies.
I love the grumplings series. If you already don’t know, Taylored Expressions has this Grumplings series of stamp set and dies which are just fantastic with hilarious sentiment. They are my favourite series. Check them out. The Spring Grumplings are no better. I love playing with these grumplings. Makes me so happy. I combined Spring Grumplings stamp set with the new Spring Florals stamp set and coordinating dies to make my card.
Instructions:
1. Card base is made of Granny Smith cardstock and stamped on with foliage and dots stamps from Spring Floral stamp set and Granny Smith TE dye ink.
2. I then die cut a round card base using the largest stitched circle die and Lavender Glaze cardstock. I adhered this on the centre of the card front.
3. I stamped the Spring Grumpling image on watercolour paper using Oreo Hybrid ink and coloured with Zig Clean Brush Pens. Then die cut the image out using the coordinating die.
4. I stamped the wreath, foliage and flowers from Spring Florals stamp set using Granny Smith, Sprinkles, Strawberry Milkshake and Lemon Meringue TE dye inks. Then die cut them all out using the coordinating dies.
5. The sentiment from Spring Grumplings stamp set is white heat embossed on a strip of Oreo cardstock and trimmed with fishtail ends.

The second project I am showcasing today is an embossing folder called Redeemer.

I love this embossing folder and perfect to create stained glass effect. I combined this embossing folder with the new My Redeemer Lives stamp set, coordinating dies, Prayers Script die and You’re in My Prayers stamp set to make my card.


Instructions:

1. My card base is Sugar Cube cardstock.

2. I used an acetate sheet and a few copic refills in blues and greens to create a stained glass like background. The colours are really bright and bold.
3. I die cut a frame using the largest frame die from Stitched Frame Stacklet and gold mirror cardstock.
4. I embossed vellum using the Redeemer embossing folder.
5. I adhered the gold frame on the vellum embossed panel and them on the stained glass acetate sheet. The vellum panel softens the bright and bold acetate panel and makes it look beautiful.
6. For the focal point, I gold heat embossed the cross from My Redeemer Lives stamp set and die cut using the coordinating die. I adhered this die on the centre of the vellum panel.
7. For the sentiment, I die cut Prayers Script die using gold mirror cardstock and gold heat embossed the smaller sentiment on a strip of white cardstock from the You’re in My Prayers stamp set. Both are adhered over the cross as shown.
8. The entire panel is adhered on to the card front using foam adhesives and embellished with gold sequins.

You are Egg – ceptional!

Welcome back. This is my second post for today. Here is my SSS challenge post.
Today is the day #3 of Taylored Expressions February release. Click here for Day #1 and Day #2 posts.
 I am sharing couple of projects using three new products. The first one is a stamp set and a coordinating die called Peek A Boo Easter.

How cute are those critters on the stamp set. I combined this stamp and die set with an older die called Peek A Boo circle to make my card.

Instructions:
1. Card base is made of Sugar Cube card stock.
2. I trimmed another Sugar Cube cardstock panel to the size of the card front and sponged TE dye inks Granny Smith and Lemon Meringue.
3. Then I used the Peek A Boo Circle die to die cut the panel. I also die cut another Sugar Cube cardstock using the same die and I need the three circles from the die cuts.
4. I sponged one circle with TE dye inks Sprinkles and Saltwater Taffy, the second circle with TE dye inks Lavender Glaze and Plum Punch and the last circle with TE dye inks Cupcake and Strawberry Milkshake. Blending two shades of the colour gave me an ombre on the circles.
5. I stamped the eggs and the bunny from the stamp set and copic coloured the images. I used the coordinating dies to die cut them out.
6. I stamped the sentiment below the circle windows on the sponged panel using Oreo TE hybrid ink.
7. To assemble the card, I adhered the sponged panel on the card base using foam adhesives. Then the sponged circles are flush glued inside the circle windows.
8. I then used glue and foam to cluster glue the eggs in groups of three and tucked glued on the left and right of the circle window. Then the bunny is tucked and glued in the centre circle.
9. I used TE enamel heart shape in Lollipop colour on the bunny’s tummy and Sugar Cube enamel shapes around the card.

Here are some closeup photos of the card.

The second card showcases Skinny Mini Spring Borders die set along with Peek A Boo Easter stamp and die set.

These are cute banners and will add awesome interest to any spring themed card.

GAYATRISkinnyminispringbordersWED1//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Instructions:


1. My card base is Sugar Cube cardstock.

2. I die cut Sprinkles cardstock using the Build a Scene Rolling Clouds dies to make a pair of rolling clouds. I sponged Sprinkles TE ink on the edges of the clouds to add depth.
3. I used Mint Julep cardstock to die cut landscapes using Build a Scene: Rolling Hills dies and sponged Granny Smith TE ink to add depth.
4. I stamped three bunnies and a few eggs from Peek A Boo Easter stamp set on Sugar Cube cardstock and copic coloured them in pastel colours.
5. I used the coordinating die set to die cut them all out.
6. I die cut two flower banners from Skinny Mini Spring Borders die set using Potato Chip cardstock and two bird banners using Cupcake cardstock.
7. To assemble the card, I adhered the rolling clouds flush on the card front, trimmed the overhang off, then the first hill flush, trimmed the overhang, then the other tow hills using foam adhesives and trim off the overhang again. It is better to trim the overhangs as your go because trimmed a thick layer of cardstock overhangs towards the end will be very difficult.
8. The banners are flush glued on top of the card front.
9. The bunnies and eggs are tucked into the hill layers with glue.
10. The sentiment is from Rainboot Bouquet stamp set which is white heat embossed on a strip of Poppy Seed cardstock.
11. I added TE Candy Corn enamel shapes to the centre of the banner flowers and brush shimmer on the eggs using Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen.

Couple of close up of the card.

Have a Happy and Blessed Easter!

Welcome back! Hope you got inspired by day #1 sneak peek of February release from Taylored Expressions. Today is day #2 and I have more new products to show you.
First I have a beautiful stamp set called So Very Blessed. This set is a small set with beautiful sentiments. There is a coordinating die called Blessed Script die.

I have combined these two products with another new product called Ornate Frame cutting plate to make my card.
How beautiful is this ornate frame? I LOVE this die and it is a must have product in my opinion. So I used gold mirror cardstock to die cut the ornate frame and frame the beautiful Blessed sentiment. 
Instructions:
1. My card base is made out of Toffee cardstock.
2. I die cut the Ornate Fame cutting plate using gold mirror cardstock. I also die cut the ornate inlay using gold mirror carstock and vellum paper.
3. I ran a Sugar Cube card panel through TE Damask embossing folder, then sponged Tattered Rose distress ink to highlight the damask pattern. This panel is trimmed to 4″x5.25″.
4. The focal sentiment is made using Blessed Script die. I die cut one out of gold mirror  cardstock and two out of sugar cube cardstock. I stacked and glue them with the gold mirror die cut on the top.
5. The smaller sentiment is gold heat embossed on a strip of sugar cube cardstock.
6. To assemble the card, I adhered the ornate frame on the embossed panel using foam adhesive and used natural twine to wrap and tie into a bow.
7. The vellum inlay die cut is adhered on the gold mirror die cut with the Blessed sentiment die cut on the top. This is inlaid in the centre of the ornate frame using foam adhesives. Then the smaller sentiment is adhered just above the blessed sentiment.
8. Finally embellished with rose pearls which coordinates with the Tattered Rose on the embossed panel.

Here is a closeup picture of the card.

Here are the card supplies I used to make this card.

The second new product I am showcasing today is a coordinating die set for an older stamp set. This coordinating die set is called Faith in Bloom which coordinates Faith in Bloom stamp set.

I coloured the floral images, die cut using the coordinating dies and make the background for my card.

GAYATRIFaithinBloomflatTUES//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Instructions:


1. My card base is made using Granny Smith cardstock.

2. I stamped the floral images some of them twice from Faith in Bloom stamp set, coloured them with copic markers in pastel colours, then used the coordianting dies to die cut them out.
3. I trimmed a Sugar Cube cardstock to 4″x5.25″ and adhered the floral die cuts randomly using foam adhesives. The over hangs were trimmed off with scissors.
4. The sentiment is from He is Risen stamp set which is heat embossed using Liquid Platinum embossing powder on a strip of vellum paper.
5. I wrapped the vellum around the floral panel and adhered the entire panel on the card front.
6. I brushed the flower centres with clear shimmer using Wink of Stella shimmer pen and added glossy accent to a few flower centres.

Some closeups for you.
