Wedding gift - handmade album.

 Hello everyone, today I'm sharing another beautiful project I created for a customized order.. this is a handmade album for Wedding gift, including Cricket theme as well...

I have used pattern papers from Papericious - The Flickers, Blooms and Berries which matched well with red color theme for Wedding and love.

This album size is 6x9" and can hold up to 17-19 photos. I have distressed all the edges of the papers, die-cuts using Festive Berries distress ink which matched the flowers and the pattern papers. The flowers were made with 5-petal flower dies colored using Carnation Red and Red Geranium archival inks. The filler flowers were colored using Sunflower archival ink.
The leaves are cut using rose leaf die from Itsy Bitsy, colored using Sunflower, Rose Madder and Leaf Green archival inks.
I have used many pockets and flaps along with Twist-n-Spin pop-up section and a slider element. I have added my own hand-written quotes on friendship, marriage and love.
The main element on this album was the part with the Cricket theme. I used cricket themed chipboards from TheElementCraftStudio, and used these with an 'Inside Surprise spinner' section. My customer wanted to make this as a very memorable gift and I hope I could meet up the expectations...!

The box size is 7x10'' in size with a top open section. To check in the complete video of this album, please click here.

You make me Smile - 4x4 Mini album - #DMCCROWNSTAGE3

Welcome again to my blog.. Im sharing my latest project created for the DressMyCraft - DMC Crown contest. I was so excited to get through the first 2 levels of the contest and enjoyed creating the new projects. For the final round, we were asked to make a 4x4 mini album with a box/basket to keep the album. Shalini Mittal was also so generous to provide us with the goodies to make the album. 

This album can hold up to 32 photos, with many pockets and folds. The pattern papers I used was from Whispering Love paper pack from DressMyCraft.

Along with the many pockets and folds, I have created one section with 'Inside surprise spinner' card, few pages with small shaker elements, like the one below and another section with Twist-n-Flip pop-up.

You can check the video of my album by clicking the link here.

The box I created is of 5x5" size to fit the album, with a gate fold opening and decorated the sides using the same paper pack. All the other embellishments and flower making making materials are also from DressMyCraft/CraftersCorner.

Birthday shaker card - Most beautiful day !!

 What is more special than our dear ones birthdays... As my dear brother started a new beginning in his life to serve the people of God's community...wanted to give him something special on his birthday..Sharing my latest project I created for my brother's birthday.

I used a Ivory card base measuring 9 1/2" x 6 1/2" and layered pattern papers from one of my favorite DMC pattern papers - Pink Smoke paper pack, for the top and the inside part of the card base.

I used a shaker element as the focal point using sequins and flower pearls from DressMyCraft along with few butterfly sequins from my stash. The shaker element is added on top of several layers of die-cuts using Heartfelt Creations Majestic Swirl Frames dies. Stacked them on top of each other with foam tapes to give extra dimension.
For the flowers and leaves I used the beautiful Wild Rose stamp and die set from Heartfelt Creations. I colored the flowers using Tea Rose and Rose Madder inks from Archival, shaped and stacked them using DressMyCraft flower pollens. For the leaves, I stamped and colored them using Watering Can, Shadow Grey and Fren Green Archival inks. 
I did a simple arrangement with the flowers and leaves around the shaker element, after adding some glitter and flowers pearls on them. I have also added some die-cut pieces using the Swirly Border Accents die from Heartfelt Creations.
I finished off the card by adding sentiments from Altenew - Beautiful Day stamp set as well as few butterflies cut out from the same paper collection. Hoping to come up with many more projects for inspiration.. 😍

Water-coloring with Stenciled background greeting cards

Hi all... sharing my next set of cards with water-colored images and here I have used stenciled backgrounds as mat layer for the cards.
I have used stencils from different brands like DressMyCraft and Craftreat, mixed and matched Distress inks and Distress oxide inks for the background.

I also created few background using heat embossed resist technique with gold embossing and also did stenciling on top of that. 

Even though these are busy backgrounds, I used various colors with contrast and make the flowers pop out. I enjoyed my time coloring these beauties and my next step would be No-line water-coloring. Hope to see you all soon with more variety of projects and inspirations... ☺

Water-coloring with Dry embossed background greeting cards.

Hello everyone... hope you all are safe and in good health..
I did some water-coloring to relax myself during these quarantine period and ended up creating cards with all the colored images.
I have been wanting to do water-coloring with Altenew stamps and pulled out my little collection of floral stamps I had in my stash.

I used the Brusto - Artist watercolor papers and stamped many images of the flowers and leaves with Archival Jet Black ink and some with white and gold heat embossing.
The stamp sets I used are Beautiful day set, Wallpaper art set, Peony Bouquet set and Garden treasures set.
For the colors I used distress inks and Craftangles liquid watercolors and once all my images were dried I fussy-cut them out.
I wanted to incorporate these into cards but did not like the idea of simple plain cards. 
So did some dry embossing using few embossing folders from my stash, distressed them using Distress oxide inks and used them as the mat layer for the cards.
All my cards measure 4.5'' x 6.5'' in size and I have used Neenah Solar White card-stock for the embossed panels. I used some sentiments also from Altenew and some Nuvo drops as embellishments.

Explosion Box - Baby theme - June month Creative Inspirator project - Simply Fantastic Creations.

Hello Everyone.. today Im sharing my latest project created for Simply Fantastic Creations as June month Creative Inspirator.
I was requested to create a project with the colors from the 
mood-board and baby theme.
I simply wanted to create something which was not a layout or a card. So ended up creating an Explosion box with a Baby Stroller incorporating all the colors 
from the mood-board.
The designer papers I used was from DressMyCraft-Floral Symphony collection.
This collection had the apt colors for the theme. I created the baby stroller also using the same papers as well as embellishing it with pearls brads, ribbon and buttons.
I created flowers using the Delightful Daisies stamp and die set from Heartfelt creations, colored them with archival inks and shaped them using the groove golf tools.

I have also used die-cuts using dies from DressMyCraft, ICraft and few from AartyCrafty by Shalini Agarwal as well. Finished off the project by adding some sequins, Nuvo drops and sprinkled glitter on the floral arrangement.     
I have also added hand written sentiments for baby showers and blessings. I loved creating this project and how it all came up beautifully with coordinating papers.
