Guest Designing @ Uniko Studio Challenge Blog !!

Hi...i am super excited and honoured while sharing this with you all that i am Guest Designing for the Uniko Studio Challenge Blog today 😆 As my card was the winner in their last month Challenge so they invited me to Guset Design for their next challenge and i so readily accepted the opportunity !!

This month theme is - Autumn/Fall with the optional twist of Halloween !!

Here is the Challenge Graphic - 

And here is my take on the same  - 

 As I do not own any Fall/Autumn themed Stamp set so i used PABD leaf die to die cut the the leaves out of my card stock and by using WRMK Next Level Embossing Folder , dry embossed the woody textures on the whole panel. Then colored the leaves with my watercolor brush pens.
Then using the Inlaid - Die cutting technique placed all three leaves in the negative space.
For adding more interest i splattered some golden acrylic paint randomly & ued glossy accents for clear dew drops .
Heat embossed the sentiment in gold from Technique Tuesday Stamp set and adhere the whole panel to the Base card .

One Closer Look - 

Hope you like my attempt hop on to the Challenge Blog and leave me some love !! Looking forward to your participation at Challenge # 43.

Hugs ..

First Card by Yesha !! I am posting on behalf of my daughter & very excited to share her creation with you all...!!
Actually when I saw the Kids Challenge on Simon Says Stamp Blog, I immediately decided to participate with Yesha. She is 7 yrs old and recently enetered into her 8th and she has a keen interest in arts & drawing. She mostly sit along with me while I craft and try to reach every possible supply & I tried to keep her away from my crafty stuff but that's impossible... 😆 She anyhow manage to grab some of the stuff !! Thats a other story so lets move on to the post ... 😋

Today we created a Card with the theme Back to School, the challenge running on Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog so I picked this theme for her, as Teachers day is around and this card is to thank her teachers to help & guide her till now. Yes she is making copies of the same card for all her teachers. I guided her little bit in designing & cutting and rest all she did with herself !! The Theme on Kids Challenge was ANYTHING GOES WITH SPARKLE & we added Small Silver Glitter Hearts & Stars to add sparkle !!

Here is the card -- 

We made a short video also while she was working ...!! Have a look on that too.. 😆 I Hope you Enjoy !!

Here is the video -- (Sorry For Bad Lighting as filmed in evening !!)

Congratulations Card !!

Hello freinds ...!! I am so happy that finally i could manage to craft again.....still in my moody phase but will be back on track soon !! There are so many talented artists around and so the inspirations ...and i wanna thank each and all for inspiring me through their beautiful creations & encouraging to create something !! 💓💓

      Today i am sharing a card which i made using my recent purchase of Altenew Magnolia for her Stamp Set !! I was eying this and some more Altenew Stamps since long and finally i grabbed two sets recently and hoping to get some more in near future !! 😛

         So without wasting more time , lets move on to the card which is inspired by the recent Inspiration Challenge going on the Altnew Blog !!, here it is -

Here is the inspiration picture - 

I was inspired by the Erum's Card ..though i can never create a beauty like her 😜 . I just choose the colors , gold embossing , Golden thread and everything i could catch from the inspiration pic !! 

For this card i stamped the BG with a Kaisercraft Woodgrain Stamp set in Momento Rich Cocoa Ink , Then i heat embossed the Magnolia Flowers in gold on Canson Watercolor Paper.

To color the flowers i used my Fabercastell Connector pens and i am so so happy with the results & with my purchase too 😝 as i never expected this kind of vibrancy from those pens but they are awesome & budget friendly too ..LOL 😂 

Finally added the white heat embossed sentiment from the same set & some sequins /enamel dots here n there to finish off the card !!

Here is one more view..!! 

PS - I am trying to improve my photography also do let me know where n what i need to correct more !! 😃

Hope you like my attempt in watercoloring ....Thank you so much for taking time & encouraging me with your love !!

A Rainbow Thank You !!

Hii...I am back again & up today with a CAS Rainbow Card which i made using couples of inspirational challenges !! Though I am trying hard to get my creative juices flow again...but i think it would take time.. :) !!

Here is my card - 

Steps - 

1) For this card i used various colored card stock scrap pieces ...cut them in stripes randomly.  
2) Then took a scrap piece of CS and stick the double sided adhesive tape on whole piece .
3) Now the fun part begins is to adhere all the stripes in rainbow pattern on that sticky CS.
4) Then using PABD die , I cut the word Thank you out of that rainbow panel and using Inlaid Die Cut technique , inlaid another Thank you cut from a white CS.
5) Embellished it with PABD Enamel Dots and yay..its done !!

For finishing touch added some Turquoise Enamel Dots from the PABD Store. Simple and quick to go !!
