Watercoloring my heart out!

So this started with The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. ALL that has been fussy cut!
I heat embossed Peony Scrolls by Altenew to watercolor using distress inks for the challenge.
Shared the photo above on Instagram and BAM came the likes and comments!
I broke a record for the number of likes and Altenew shared my photo!! 
*dancing like a lunatic*

I made four cards out of the flowers I watercolored. The sentiments are also from Altenew.

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


Hello everyone!
A bit late to the party but I thought I'd play along the Coffee Lovers  Blog Hop!
I don't have any coffee stamps but I absolutely LOVE coffee.
I used the freebie provided by Verve Stamps for my card.

I edited the sentiment digi stamp in Photoshop and converted it into a chalkboard label but I forgot to edit the solid white and make it more chalky. Happens when you are trying to make a card at 1am!
For the background I used distress ink to watercolor and added a lot of black splatters to go with my chalkboard label. 
The heart is hand drawn, inked with peacock feathers and then glittered. The flower too has been inked and glittered. Added a twine bow behind it, cant complete a fall card without twine.. no no.
I added a few sequins for wee more sparkle, I hope they are visible. 
That's it! I hope you like my card.

Hello everyone!! 
Hope you guys are doing great!
I am taking a couple of days off from commission work due to Eid and it was just the right time to receive this awesome STAMPtember stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. 
It's a collaboration stamp set between Simon Says Stamp and Clearly Besotted called "Holiday Banners"

I took the smaller elements from the stamp set, stamped, heat embossed and fussy cut them then and made a banner out of it.
Inks are by Avery Elle and die plus sentiment by Simon Says Stamp.

Thought I'd enter this in Work it Wednesday and the SSS Wednesday challenge.


Thats all folks!

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!

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
