Inspired by Fall

Hey all, my second post of the day. Just wanted to share a few cards sitting on my desk.

This one is my favorite maple leaves inspired card. I did sponging in a scattered manner, using the same hand -cut maple leaf stencil, I have. This time using more of yellow than the browns. The sentiment is stamped in black from HLS - mix mash set, the strip is lined up with some brown card.
A few jewels to finish off.

Gold Mandala

Happy Sunday to one and all.
I am up with a super clean and simple card, which I made yesterday.

I used just white, and gold here. I heat embossed the big Mandala from Uniko - Marvellous Mehendi in gold, fuzzy cut to add it as my focal point.
The sentiment is from 2 different sets from Uniko.
A few jewels to finish off, I love the look of this card.

Black and orange

Hey all, I though sharing another card, I have a couple of cards waiting to be posted, so here it goes.
I have used an orange textured base here, and a white front. I used Uniko Beautiful blooms and stamped in grey and black to create the background. Then used one bloom and heat embossed in vellum, stamped it 3 times, to get the dimensional look, bu cutting out 3 sections from each flower.
The flower layers are added with foam adhesive, and a twine on the top plus few jewels to finish off.
The sentiments are also from Uniko.

Never Give Up

Good morning/day blogger friends. I am up with a simple tone on tone stamping card.
I chose a shimmer pink card stock fro the front, and a white base. I used Uniko - round and round to stamp the background using Pink Pirouette from SU. The sentiment stamps are from Hero Arts - Sketched letter, and Casual Friday - hope.
I added a vellum die cut butterfly with some jewels on it, and a few more jewels to finish off. A white floss at the top, that is it.

Photographing shimmery cards is not easier

Uniko Challenge #37

Hey all, it's time for a new challenge at Uniko. This month it is Rainbow. Be inspired by the word in whatever way you want and create anything you like.

For my card, I chose to do an acetate one.
The front only though. I used the stamps from Uniko, stamped the candle, and colored it in form of streaks, as I didn't wanted to color them in full, in a rainbow of colors.
Added glitter strips to finish off. If you notice, I have added some colors on the bold sentiment too.

Coffee and friends

Hello blogger peeps, hope you all are geared up for the weekend. Our weekend has come early, as today is declared as holiday, we have a big storm passing by very close from here. So kiddos were anticipating the holiday.

I am up with a card I made yesterday, it is a simple card. I used Uniko stamps for the card.
I chose a dark brown shade to mimic the coffee color. I stamped the sentiment first along with a few coffee beans, and then used a brown marker to draw the lines to create a panel.
I stamped the cup in grey ink and left it uncolored, just stamped a brown flower from the set, it is Uniko logo, fuzzy cut it, and added with foam adhesive, a few sequins to finish off. A super simple card.

A special birthday

Hi crafty peeps, hope everyone is doing great!
It is a special day at my household today, it is my son's 16th birthday. I still remember him as a baby but my little boy is not so little anymore, he is way taller than me(actually both my kids are), and a very thoughtful young handsome man now. WOW, time indeed is flying!!!!
I always give my kids cards on their birthdays, that's how my card making started actually.
So I try every card to be different from their previous ones, and also different from what I make for each of them.

This year, I am going with A textured blue base, and a black textured front.
I used ARTplorations Shutter stencil to sponge the pigment inks on the black base. The numbers are from HLS - bold numbers, I stamped on a red paper and heat embossed in gold,
and the die cut is from Spellbinders.
I wrote "today" using versafine embossing pen and heat embossed in gold. The front is lined with a blue glitter strip.
I think he will like it.

TCC #60

Hey everyone, it is time for another challenge at the Card Concept.

For my card, I had used the chevron stamp from Kaisercraft, and stamped in Calypso Coral from SU.
The Maple leaf is from my hand cut stencil, I drew the outline,  and used zigs to color it, in a water color paper, then fuzzy cut it.
I used the sunflower from my custom made  stamp set, and colored it using the zigs, and fuzzy cut it. Simply arranged the leaf and flower on the chevron. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant. That's it, hope you guys like it.
