Inspired by Mini Album !

Lately I have been pinning lot of mini album on my pin board, I just love the use of graphics, embossing, vellum, stitching and most the light organic water color look! So you get what’s the inspiration behind today’s card .Its a mini (3*4) gate fold card.

I went for cool color scheme, inspired by the beach/ocean (My interpretation of holidays, ideal summer vacation!)Distress Ink swooshing on bg  followed by light stamping. Stitched the vellum piece and decorated with embellishments.I found a perfect U pin in my stash , doesn't it look like a star fish ?

This is how I have tied the sentiments with birthday theme.A bit hurried attempt at writing the sentiment. 

Supplies used:
Stamps: Tim holtz cling stamp set, pixel set(Mudra),numbers rubber stamp
Inks: Versamark embossing ink, jet black archival Ink, Cracked pistachio & peacock feathers Distress Ink.

Beautiful moments

For it’s the little moments that matter most! 
Yet another card for guys well not pure masculine ! It can be gifted to anyone. Along with non floral stamps I also wanted to use colored cardstock. Ended up inking it to make it look bright!

Used the pixels stamp (apt name!) to create a grid on the background and the camera image is heat embossed on vellum.

I recently found few embellishments which I had for years .Used them to decorate this card. Would love to now If you like this card !

You Rock !

I love to watercolor color and I often reach for my floral stamp for doing so .Which results in very less (almost none) masculine cards. Time to create some and show some love to non-floral stamp from my stash!

I followed a sketch for this card. Started by heat embossing the image on vellum and then layered it on a ink smooshed paper scrap. For the background I went with strips (equaliser ,some effort to relate it with musical theme) I guess rainbow strips would have looked better !What do you think ?

Supplies used :
Stamps : Rock it(Visible image), Strips 2(Winnie & Walter ), Mix Mash (Happy little Stamper )
Inks : Black archival Ink,clear embossing powder,Twisted citron & peacock feathers  Distress Ink

Happy Birthday

Hello..I am glad to share a decent looking card today .After struggling a lot and discarding many cards I managed this one which is a repetition of previous design shared here.

I am in so love with this floral stamp, Its  beautifully designed ! Started by stamping the floral spray on black cardstock with white pigment ink and stamped blooms again on watercolor cardstock. Colored, fussy cut and popped with foam tape.

Heat embossed the sentiment and finished off with few sequins.

Supplies used :
