Rainbow - Friends Forever


Here is a card I made for the August challenge at RCS - Rainbow + Friendship.

I started by blending distress inks on to a Beilo cardstock, trimmed to standard size. Once I was satisified with the rainbow effect, I misted the Nestled Circles stencil from Artplorations(Stamplorations) with water and stamped onto the panel. The distress inks react with water on the stencil and give that beautiful effect. I've then diecut the panel for a border using Gina Marie scallop frame dies, and mounted on to a black top folding card base.

The sentiment is stamped using Versamark ink and heat embossed in white. It is diecut using a framed oval die and adhered to the card. "Friends" is from a local stampset, while "Forever" is from Mudra - Love stampset.

Autumn Wishes


I have a simple card today inspired by the color challenge for Your Next Stamps :)

Here is my card!

I've used the Bold Florals stencil from Artplorations (Stamplorations), and distress inks for the flowers and leaves. The sentiment is diecut using WPlus9 dies, from green cardstock, and attached to a patterned vellum sheet. I've adhered it to the stencil panel and attached to a green top folding note card. To add more interest, I've created dew drops effect using glossy accents :)

Fairy Dust - Altered Pill Bottle


I'm guest designing at Itsy Bitsy! Check out the complete post here.
I'm using the Little Birdie's Fairy Dust glitter for my creations.

Glitter can find its place anywhere and not just card making! I had this very small medicine bottle and didn't have the heart to throw it away. Fairy Dust struck me and here I've altered the bottle :) This idea came when I was thinking what to do with the left over glitter that fell down while making the cards! I hated to waste them, so mixed all of the blue, pink shades and used it here :)

I applied mod podge and filled with the mixed glitter while the glue is still wet. Tap off the excess and allow it to dry overnight. Once dry, check for empty spots and repeat the process.

Tip: To prevent the glitter from falling and sticking to your hands, coat with 1 or 2 layers of mod podge leaving sufficient drying time in between.

I then embellished using a golden ribbon and a couple of gem stickers. Did you notice the golden border at the base of the bottle? It is nothing but the scalloped scrap from the butterfly card :)

Able to see the mix of colours in the glitter? That's my scrap dust!!

To understand how tiny it is, look at what I've kept inside - Toothpicks! :)
