I love Math Challenge #10


Hello friends,

It is the time for I love math challenge @ Milka's blog. It is 10th challenge. The theme is Lines and/or stripes with hint of summer. Use line or lines or stripes on your summer themed project.
Curves (curvy lines) are allowed, but lines and/or stripes must be in a focal point. 



Here is my take on it. 


The stripes are Clearly Besotted stamp  . Origami Cranes are old, probably  retired Reverse confetti stamp. Sentiment is mix of Flaura & Faune and Avery Elle. Blue, green colors are for summer hint.



I love the ultra modern look of this card and the color combo. Sometimes, you surprise your own-self and this was that moment for me. Head over to challenge blog to learn more and see more inspirations HERE.  

I hope I will see you there in link up..:) Have a great day!

Hello Crafty Friends,

 How have you been? I hope you all are creating something beautiful.

Today, I have a set of cards made using Altenew -Floral Shadow stamp set on Let'z Craft blog.


I created inky backdrop using Minty Mint and Dew drops ink pads. This is my favorite way to add color to the background. You can check the video of same technique  HERE. Let the background dry. Emboss few flowers using versamark ink and Altenew - Rose Gold Embossing powder . I love the peachy shimmery floral on that minty background. Stamp some leaves using Fresh leaf and ocean wave inks. On a piece of paper, I created similar background and stamped the sentiment. I added a frame (lawn fawn mini picture frame die) around it to highlight the sentiment.
Here is the colse up.

I wish you can see that in person! That shimmer is amazing!
For the second one, I embossed florals in white on a piece of printed vellum.


I backed the velum with slightly broader dark grey cs which gives nice contrast to the stamped images. I mounted the panel on light grey card base, Stamped few branches at the bottom of the card and finished it off by stamping the sentiment in black.


Last one is my favorite.


I have used various Altenew Inks   and MISTI for stamping. You will need two shades of each ink for flowers and leaves. I used these ink daubers by Tsukineko   to ink the stamps. these are very useful when you have very small are a to ink or stencil. Yocan do selective inking on a large stamp. First, I inked the solid flowers in lighter shade of blue and stamped. I used same ink to ink outer edges and stamp it again on the same spot using misti. For the 3rd and last alyer I used ear bud to ink edges of the flowers with darker blue ink. Such inking helps to create depth in a flat, solid images. Same way, I stamped leaves using 2 shades of greenish blue. Added sentiment and details in the flower centers using marker and some glitter. Mounted the panel on black striped pattern paper. I also added some gold accent cut from DCWV glitter cs!
       
   There is so much more you can do with this solid stamps. I will be covering few in my next post. So stay tuned and keep crafting.
Thank you for being here.

Masculine cards

Hi friends,

I am sharing 2 masculine cards, today!
First one is made using Altenew Cube Builder Stencil, Lil Inker 'DAD" die  and technique Tuesday die.




Second card uses Glorious Glob Basics Stamps and dies. This is very interesting concept. Once you buy basic stamp set and die, every month they come up with mini stamp set to go with your basic stamp and die. Really affordable way to get more out of supply.




The globe motif is so versatile that it can be used for multiple occasions' card just by changing the sentiment. I am loving this set a lot. 
Hope you enjoyed these. Hugs.

Friendship is strength

Hi there,

I am sharing a card which I made according to client's brief. The brief was simple... for a friend who is always there for me and she has blue hair. This stamp set Special Bond is  by Unity Stamp Company was a perfect fit with that beautiful sentiment. I used copic markers to color the image.




As you know, pattern papers and layering is not my strong points but I like the Indigo Hill pattern papers by Pinkfresh Studio so much that I had to use them. Love how this card turned out. It has lots of dimension as i used foam tape to mount those layers.



That is all for today! Se you soon!

Lemonade Sun

Hi friends,

This summer is really harsh. Temperature is soaring and I can't think of anything other than watermelons and lemonades. Yesterday was so hot and humid that even  the sun needed to cool down so it beamed down to drink some lemonade....:P


Fun! Isn't it? I have used Jane's Doodles Life is good and rain or shine stamp set.

Chase your dreams

Hi friends,

I am sharing a floral card today! I got this stamp set Fleur 2 by Pinkfresh quite some time ago but this crazy summer and unexpected social events are keeping me away from crafting. This is a large set consisting of many images of flowers and branches. I love it's delicate, whimsical feel. I made this card for my student, a sweet girl who went to Australia for further studies in Architect. She is a girl with million dreams who is very close to me. I wish all her dreams come true!




The sentiment is from Word series - Believe stamp set. This is a very versatile stamp set which gives you many options for one of a kind sentiments. I colored the florals using Tomboy dual pens. The images are very delicate so brush tip of tombow pen gives me better control than water colors. 



I have few more ideas using this set. Hoping to make and post soon. 
Thank you for stopping by!

Coffee and friends

Hi friends,
Today's, card is for a sweet friend who is  a big coffee lover and my sole inspiration for all my coffee cards. She is the one who started this hop which is becoming a huge hit. Yes, cheers to Amy!  During my last visit to Seattle, I had a chance to meet her. She took me to a craft store and later on we had a coffee together! I had amazing time which I will cherish through out my life. All of it feels so surreal....So this card is for those sweet memories.


I got this Seattle Needle die form Impress Rubber Stamps which I visited with her. City scape die is by mama elephant, sentiment and coffee cups are by Neat & Tangled . 





Thank you, Amy for those memories! I hope you will like the card.
Hugs!
