Hi.. Friends..
Its been a long time i posted here. I have 2 cards for you today. I wanted to make a shaker card from past few days. So i have one shaker card.

Card #2

This was very easy to put together as most elements were ready.

* I used remainders of frame for this card.
* I glued both pieces on an acetate.
* Heat embossed image and sentiment from magical fairies on vellum.
* Glued the vellum on the panel and the whole panel was mounted on card base with foam tape.

** Only reason to use acetate was to avoid cutting thin strips of foam tape.

Here is my card

Here is the closer look at the panel and sentiment.

Hi.. Crafty friends…

Here I am with my second DT post. To be frank I really struggled and liked the process of these 3 cards. I hope you are playing along with our October challenge which is a recipe. Please do read Guidelines carefully before linking your project.

Card #1
** I masked the card base (1″around the card base), placed the stencil diagonally on the base and secured with masking tape.
** I mixed candid apple distress ink with texture paste, applied it through stencil. Left it dry on its own.
** Die cut the scalloped frame (bigger) with same CS, few vellum fern flourishes and one white fern flourish.
** I double heat embossed the CS fern flourish with gold embossing powder to give it dimension. Die cut few Thank you, adhered them together and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
** To assemble the card, I foam mounted the frame on card base around the stencilled area. I put silver embroidery floss on top of which glued ferns. Added the sentiment.

Here is a close up of die cut embellishments, just love this texture of white embossing powder.

Peek-a-boo october release

Crafty friends..
Here I am with 3 cards for Peek-a-boo designs. 
Card #1
** This was the card which i made when i was struggling with ideas. 
** I secured card base n stencil and applied embossing paste.  Left it to dry of its own. 
** Sprayed gold shimmer mist from ranger. 
** Gold heat embossed two butter flies and fussy cut them out.
** Coloured one butterfly with copics (carefully) and few strokes with gold marker. Glued it on other plain butterfly.  
** Heat embossed sentiment on vellum n sandwiched it between two scalloped circles. 
** Placed sentiment n butterfly with liquid glue. 
** To finish the card added few rainstones towards top n 3 more on butterfly’s body.
Here is closeup of butterfly n gold shimmer mist.

 (1 sentiment, 2 die cuts, 2 fussy cut images, 1 stencil)
Card #2
** This is my first attempt in colouring on vellum. 
** I stamped & gold heat embossedin the image on vellum. 
** Used few copics to colour it on back (many have said that colouring directly on heat embossed image with copics will damage copic nibs). 
** I didn’t feel like taking risk with glueing vellum on card front. So i left 1/2″ towards top so that i can fold and glue it behind. 
** Heat embossed sentiment with gold embossing powder. 
** Added few enamel dots to the card.
Here is close up sentiment and the the coloured flowers.

Card #3

** Die cut number 1 & st with red glitter foam. 
** Heat embossed sentiment with white embossing powder. 
** Foam mounted panel towards top of card base. 
** Glued glitter foam pieces in place to finish the card.

Rainbow colour – Peek-a-boo stamp

Here i am with another card. Few days back I received this stamp from Peek-a-boo stamp through Catchy designs. So thought I will use it soon.
I used the heart stamp from the set and heat embossed the image with liquid platinum powder, then used distress inks to blend colours. Then added few drops water to bleach out colours for added interest. I used sentiment from the same set n heat embossed on a black strip of paper with white embossing powder.
To add little more interest i smeared versa mark ink on the edges of card base and heat embossed with liquid platinum. I assembled card with foam tape.
