Hello everyone, I am sharing a quick way to get mirror stamping without the fancy mirror stamps. Please check my You tube channel for the same and if you are not a subscriber yet. I'd love if you'd subscribe. I am using Your Next Stamp's  Cool cats  for the cat images and a big stamp from their  Countryside cuties  that works as a good platform to stamp on.

Hello everyone, Did you check the Stash challenge at Cupcake Inspirations blog?   This week we are challenge you to make a card/project  featuring Ephemera.  (Items of collectible memorabilia, typically written or printed ones, that were originally expected  to have only short-term usefulness or popularity.) If you are a serious Crafter then there are chances that you are a serious hoarder :D If you are like me you also would have bought those pretty stickers, die cuts, to be used on your projects! Finally it's time for me to put them to use. I had these cute little Perfume bottle that I saw at a stationary shop and had been hoarding since more than a year. I used one of the bottles and used the pretty watercolour floral elements pack by CrafTangles for the card. And I have used Scripty XOXO by Lawn Fawn. I used SSS stitched whirl background to depict the fragrance spreading and then thought why not add splatters to depict the light spray? Recently I had seen a

Monochromatic - gardener card - Funky fossil

Image
Hello and thank you for stopping by, You know the eagerness to play with your new supplies? I recently got this amazing and ohh my heart goes out to anything to do with gardening - new stamp set by  Funky fossil  designs  called plant a garden  . and here is my card - More towards Masculine side. Because a feminine card will have pretty color boots (😉 - pink perhaps). I did some masking and watercoloring with Zig markers and pencils for shadows and depth. May be when my garden is flowering in coming season with Petunias and Nasturtiums, I'd get the Pink boots out on the card.  Hope you will like it.

AAA - Birthday Fox - Funky Fossil Designs

Image
Hello.. hello.. It's the second Sunday and there is a new game up at  AAA cards . One Image and an optional twist of shimmer. And we have the fabulous, the most chic and oooh such cool designs - company   Funky Fossil Designs  - giving away £15.00 store credit to our winner. I love shimmer, but I skipped it this time, because I associate Fox with my brother, who was in theFoxtrot Squadron.. the Sly Fox.. All brothers are that.. especially younger ones. So this card had to be a masculine card and hence.. minus shimmer. I am using   The quick brown fox  stamp set by Funky fossil designs which was my birthday gift sent by Sandie Munro  and my first FFD set. Look at that funky little fox! And I love the quirky font of the sentiment.  A little Copic coloring and masking for the background and tadaaa.. Here's the story of the two foxes. My son was so intrigued to see my colored fox, he said he will make too! So we made two :D I am sure you can
