When You Look At Me

Hello everyone!
How are you guys doing?! I am busy with several projects, I post them regularly on my Instagram HERE if you wish to check them out. Today I have a CAS card for you.
I made this card using one of my favourite sentiment stamp set by MFT Stamps and my Silhouette.
Just glittered the lifeline (ECG line) to add a bit of sparkle and added a bit of glossy accents on the heart.
Here is a closer look before I added the heart.

That's it for me today!

Use One Color

Here is what I created.

I used the cutie Panda from the Panda Bears set. You will find him at the Etsy store, all links provided at the end of this post.

Die-cutting 2.0

Second post of today!
Another card with die-cutting and heat embossing. This time I tried something different.
I used around 7 SSS Exclusive Stamps and two Dies to create this card.
Will list the stamps at the end of this post. 

Taking part in Jen Shurkus's 10th Blogiversary, I thought I'd CASE the following card of hers.

I have used the falling hearts background die along with the "love" die.
I used "I love you" to white heat emboss on black cardstock to make a contrasting layer.
Watercolored a panel cut out from Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock using Gansai Tambi watercolors and then white heat embossed several sentiments on it to give it a faux subway art look.
I made a mistake of stamping on the textured surface, hence the grungy heat embossing.

I do like the Gansai Tambi's  bright bold colors. 

I hope you liked it!

SSS Exclusive Stamps used:
- Talk Bubbles 2
- Just a Love Note
- Expressions for You
- So Beautiful
- Friendship Messages
- Shoot for the Stars
- Inside and Out Sayings


Yep! I went a bit diecut crazy. 

Here is what I made:

I used the SSS Exclusive Happy die plus the Apothecary labels and die set for my card.
I diecut the "Happy" die about a hundred times (or so it feels) and spent over an hour or two making the background!
When I was done with the background it looked so good I almost forgot about the agony of diecutting happy a million times (err a hundred times, sorry!).
The white on white looked very fresh and clean.

I actually planned on using the "You" die but that was TINY, it was equal to 2 times the happy die so I did what was best for my poor little hand and went with the happy one!

The sentiment is heat embossed and then diecut using the matching label die.
Added a bit of silver string to add a little bling, didnt have any silver cupped sequins on hand otherwise this would have looked absolutely complete!
Hope you liked it!
hugs and kisses,

Guest Designing at CUYL: Masking

Hello everyone!
I am so sorry I have not visited your blogs in a while. Will make sure to stop by over the weekend.
It's my third card for the Challenge Up Your Life guest DT spot.
This fortnight the theme is


Here is what I made:

This is a total Hero Arts card. Have not made one in a while. 
I stamped a butterfly on a separate piece of cardstock and used it as a mask to stamp several of them on the watercolor paper.
I also masked some parts of the butterfly with my versamark pen and then clear embossed it. I also used glossy accents as a mask (thanks Tejal for the tip!). 
The butterflies have been watercolored using several colours of distress inks.
Both stamps are by Hero Arts. The sentiment is heat embossed.
Stop by the CUYL challenge blog to enter!
That's all from my side today.
Have a wonderful day :)

I really wanted to use this adorable elephant by Lia Stampz so I made my own 0.75" pinwheel as my "handmade flower".
NOT the easiest task I tell you!

That's it from me, Sitting in front of the laptop is hurting my eyes so much!

Guest Designing at Artful Crafting

Hello everyone!
I am guest designing over at Artful Crafting today. 
Artful Crafting is Pakistan's first ever online craft store (a dream come true really) and they recently launched the Artful Crafting Challenges.

This month the theme is

No Flowers

A bit about my card, I have used SSS die and stamp on a rainbow background which I created using various shades of distress inks.

For those who would like to know they are as follows: Festive berries, Barn Door, Fired Brick, Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive, Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean, Shaded Lilac and Picked Raspberry.
 Please know you don't need all these shades to create a rainbow background, I just wanted to complete the card quickly without wasting time in mixing colors to make a new one.

I have layered the largest butterfly and placed it a bit offset. Added a few black splatters to balance the bold, black sentiment.

There is a ton of shimmer on the card which you cant see here but is visible in person.

Until next time,
