TO - Christmas sparkle - Uniko

Image
Hello everyone!
Welcome back and am here to remind you about the challenge that is up and running at Time Out Challenges where we challenge you to be Merry and Cheerful.

Uniko Ltd are our kind sponsor and I have used their Christmas Sparkle stamp (which I think is retired now). This stamp was gifted by the very sweet and amazing cardmaker Sandi Munro .

Please head over to Time Out to see more inspiration from our Design Team and Guest Designer. Our Guest Designer this week is one of my favourite cardmakers, Angie Cimbalo, so please stop by her blog to see what she has created for this challenge. 
This challenge will run another week.  I hope you will take some Time Out of your busy schedule to play along with us :)

CIC - Ephemera - Perfume laden XOs

Image
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 card by Yoosun Hur wit…

I was so excited with the Time travel and you know what a yr old boy's mom would think... other than Santa Claus.. Dinosaurs! So I picked up Jane's Doodles - DINOmite stamp set and made this scene, where this T- rex (with scales - that's a new species, as per my son) has got flowers for his dear cute friend -Brontosaurus. And The RAWR, could mean anything ... I love you or happy birthday, that I will put when it is time to use this card.

I Copic colored the cuties and the flowers (from a Hello blue bird set), Fussy cut and used  Cra…

AAA Cards - Under the Christmas trees - Uniko Ltd - Video tutorial

Image
Hello,

Today we have a new challenge up at AAA Cards and we are making cards in minutes.

Uniko Ltd is our kind sponsor and are sponsoring one in stock stamp of our winner's choice. I have a Christmas card that I made with Uniko Ltd's Winter foliage clear stamps and I have a video on my You tube channel for this quick card.

I have lately started thinking how to get more from my stamps/supplies. And it's like an addiction! I am thinking of how can I work it differently and today's card is such, where I thought of doing something different. I have been stretching my stencilstoo, you can check some ideas I shared on you tube, here.

I hope you will stop by to check the video. All the supplies used are listed in the description box in the video.

We have the very talented and you already know how much I admire her - Angie Cimbalo  as our guest today. She is the sweetest and oh so talented (have you noticed, she is a Guest designer at so many challenges lately.. how cool! rig…

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.
