Melting heart

Hello everyone, a quick share of a simple card, before I get busy with my work. My son has returned yesterday from New York, he was away for his school trip to the United Nations. with all of us coming back from our trips, there is so much laundry to be done. I just have  a week to get all in place and start packing again for the spring break!
Ok, I was inspired by the CASology cue to make this card. It is a simple one layer card.
I used waffle flower stamps to make this. I started with stamping the tiny heart in distress ink - barn door, and sprayed some mist to make it look melted. I stamped a couple of times more after it was all dry.
The stamped the sheep and the sentiment in black, and sponged the bottom with a light hand using green ink. That is all. I hope you like it.

Off the edge butterfly

Happy Tuesday friends! I am up with a simple card which I just finished making it.

I used Uniko Studio - Originally Organics set here, and for the sentiment I have used CAS-ual Fridays - hope ribbon set.
I stamped the leaves stamp using SU - wild wasabi, and used Mars-graphic markers to color it. The flowers are stamped in Hero Art Neon - sunshine ink.
I stamped some tiny flowers around the card in neon ink.
I used a left over dry embossed and colored scrap paper to die cut the butterfly.
I added the butterfly using an acetate strip, it is tucked behind the front panel? or rather sandwiched in between the base and front. I trimmed the front panel, and added a silver glitter strip, just for interest. The sentiments are stamped in different parts, and different places, I just followed my lead!
Overall, I am loving  how the butterfly sits at the flowers on the edge, and I am happy with this uplifting spring themed card.

Upcycle card

Hello everyone, I am back after many days. You might have seen a few scheduled posts in the meantime. I was away to Thailand for a break, thanks to my kiddos.
My daughter is back from her experience week trip, she was at a remote village in Laos, it was a volunteer trip to build houses. She is back very happy and grateful for the modern day lifestyle, which she has! she was with limited electricity, and no running water, and beds. Well...a great experience!!!
My son is still away, he will be back on Tuesday, and the house will return to normal mode.

Ok, lets move to the card now.
I have up-cycled an envelope here, which we got at the hotel in Thailand. I have a few more things to upcycle from there.

The envelops and goodie bag for up cycling

I have used the white envelop with the die cut negative of the coconut/palm leaves, I used the same teal background for it. I added it to my card base and trimmed the excess paper. The sentiment is from Uniko. A white floss on the top, and a few jewels to finish off.

The die cut negative

The resort we stayed was a coconut plantation before it got transformed to a resort, so the hill and the beach was full of coconut palms. SO I am not surprised at the designs on the resort envelops and cards. I just kept my inspiration with the resort theme for this card.
Some pictures to share my inspiration.

Calling all Sistahs March blog hop

Hey all its the 17th of the month, we are up with the breast cancer self check awareness blog hop, which takes place at CASual Fridays.

You must have arrived from the very talented Vicki's blog

I am up with a simple One layer reminder today.

I started with masking the card all around, and used the distress inks to sponge. Then I used a butterfly stencil and a wet wipe, sprayed some mist and wiped of the ink. Stamped the sentiment after it was dry. A few sequins added, and a twine along with a heart sequin to finish off.

Uniko Challenge #40 - Spring with an Optional twist of Easter

Hey all, its time for a new challenge at Uniko.

Out theme this month is Spring with optional twist of Easter

For my second card, I used winnie&walter's brick stencil, and inked it up using distress ink - velvet rose. I stamped the bunny on a PP and fussy cut it.
The branch is cut using my scanNcut in white, and then I used vintage photo ink to color it. I stamped the grass and tree leaves in SU - wild wasabi, from Nature's Treasures.
Added shimmery maroon strips to frame the top and bottom. The sentiment is from the bunny set. As usual 3 jewels to finish off.

Uniko Revisit, bloghop and GIVEAWAY

Hey all, this month we are revisiting a previously released 'Some bunny' set, It is is perfect for the current season as well. It is a cute bunny and Easter or spring themed set.


I have used a handmade paper for this, I stamped the bunny on it using distress ink vintage photo, and then colored it using Marsgraphic markers in shades of brown. Fussy cut to add to the card.

I did some stenciling using  Hero Arts Neon sunshine ink and ARTplorations bubbles stencil. I added the bunny using a foam adhesive and the fence is from my stash of felt embellishments, I thought it goes pretty well with the whole theme. The bunny is tucked behind the fence.
I stamped some tiny flowers around the card to replicate spring, using worn lipstick distress ink. Stamped the sentiment on top.
Added black tiny rhine stones for the eyes, and stamped a black bow, and done!

Do stop by the Uniko blog or here is the hop list below:
