STAMPlorations New Product - "Shaker Blends"

Hello friends! I am super excited to share that STAMPlorations is adding yet another product to their store... "Shaker Blends" If you are fond of embellishing your cards with sequins or if you love making shaker cards then these blends are a perfect mix to make your cards shine :) We have a Special Hop over on the STAMP blog where me and some teamies are showcasing these Shaker Blends in action.

Commenting is from August 23 to September 8, with the winner announced on September 10 in the August winners post

I made a few cards featuring these "Shaker Blends" along with stamps and dies from STAMPlorations :) Let me show my cards to you, 
To make this card, I cut strips of colorful card stock and adhered them diagonally on the base panel. I then took a white panel and die cut these flowers. I added the transparency and added the intricate die cut flower. I then added Shaker blend - Sunshine Yellow to make my shaker. To finish I added the sentiment. I have used Trendy Spring Bloom Dies and Birthday Bash stamp set.



For this card, I created a winter scene on abase panel. By masking and ink blending. I did some silhouette stamping. Stamped, colored and fuzzy cut the image and adhered it on base panel. I then made my shaker by die cutting the frame and adding another one of the Shaker Blend - Golden Autumn. I have used Beautiful You, Snow Much and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies
For my final card, I took a die cut panel and die cut a balloon and Big hugs sentiment from it. I then stamped the floral stamps on the grey panel and also on the card base. I colored the one on the card base that will peek through the balloon. I then made my shaker, using Shaker Blend - Blue Shimmer . I have used Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies, Big Hugs Phrase Die, Kathryn's Big Wishes Coordinating Dies and In Bloom: Classic Calla Lilies

I am loving these Shaker Blends and I am sure you will love them too :) Don't forget to check the rest of the awesome creations on our blog, HERE

Hello STAMPlorations friends! I am super excited about this Special Release as I have two new stamp sets designed for my stamp line Dee's Artsy Impressions :) "Beautiful You" and "Snow Much" Me and team are showcasing these sets and there are prizes to be won :) So don't forget to hop along and comment for a chance to win :)

Let me show you the cards I created using the Beautiful You  set...
For this one I die cut the kraft panel and stamped the floral image by inking the flowers orange and leaves green. I then used Prisma color pencils for intricate details. I then stamped the sentiment.
For my second card, I went with an even simpler card design. I embossed the image in gold and did some water coloring. I used Gansai Tambi watercolors 
For my final card, I did embossing and inking but instead of traditional inking I used stencil/ mask cloud (Artplorations Clouds Stencil) to ink... To add more interest I die cut a rectangular panel to add dimension.

There is so much more that you can do with set, I will share more of my creations for days to come :)

And here are some of the cards I created featuring my "Snow much" set...
For this one, I did the traditional winter scene by stamping the image on die cut panel. I then masked it and inked the panel. I did no line pencil coloring and also stamped the images from Beautiful you set for the flora in shades of blue :) To finish I stamped the sentiment.
This one I went with traditional Christmas colors. I stamped and embossed snowflakes on the kraft panel. I also added some splatters. I then stamped, colored and fuzzy cut the images and adhered them with foam adhesive

For my final card, I made another winter scene, only here I made a shaker card. I inked the panel, stamped and colored the image. I also embossed snowflakes and made a shaker card using new product coming soon to STAMPlorations... "Shaker Blends" Besides the new stamps, I also used  Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies

I hope you liked my cards and I am excited to share many more later. Don't forget to check out all the beauties my teamies made :) HERE

This is one of my previous makes. I made this for Father's Day for my husband :) It's an interactive card that I learnt from super amazing Jennifer McGuire in one of her videos HERE. Instead of using a deer (as in the video) I popped up this little guy. For the front panel, I stamped the IloveDad in various shades of ink. Die cut a balloon and created the interactive element as in the video. Instead of the die she used, I used my E-xacto knife.

I have used Little Love Birthday WishesStrongest Dad Ever, Power of Words and Kathryn's Big Wishes Coordinating Dies

Spellbinders - PA Scribe by Paul Antonio Collection

Hey friends! I am back with Spellbinder's goodness. Today I am sharing their newest Designer PA Scribe by Paul Antonio Collection If you love calligraphy, these designs will amaze you :) I am showcasing the following sets from this collection...Hi Clear StampShapeabilities Booklet Binding Etched Dies Set 

Here is what I created... For this gorgeous stamp, I had to keep it simple and make the sentiment shine. 
So I heat embossed the stamp in gold and then water colored the panel and did some texturing using an alcohol wipe. I also used some Delicata gold Ink and swiped it along the edges for gold details. I then added a sticker sentiment strip from Spellbinders Watercolor Card kit of the month


For my second card, I wanted to keep the design subtle and the card simple. So I took kraft card stock panel for my card base and did some watermark stamping using floral stamp set from the Spellbinders Watercolor Card kit of the month. I then die cut the frame in kraft and the inside of the frame from patterned paper from the same kit. To finish I added the sticker sentiment from the same kit :)

These are two unique designs and I had so much fun playing with these :)
I hope you enjoyed my creations, don't forget to check the PA Scribe by Paul Antonio Collection and Spellbinders for all the amazing products and inspiration. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)

Addicted to CAS - Guest Designer

Hello dear friends! I am excited about this post as today I am Guest Designing for a challenge that was my very first Design Team. Addicted to CAS has been my favorite from the time I began crafting. I still remember when Kylie asked me to join the team. She is amazing and so is her awesome team. I won a challenge ATCAS #161 and I got invited to be their Guest Designer. Thank you so much Barb for all your help.



So the challenge is "HEAT"  and when I saw the code word all I thought about are the things I do in the heat and cool watermelon was one of them :)
I kept the design simple. I stamped the watermelon, fuzzy cut it and adhered it with foam adhesive. To add interest I tore the edge pf kraft card stock and layered it on green base. I also added some white splatter. To finish I stamped the sentiment. I have used Layered Watermelon and Little Love Birthday Wishes.

I hope you like my interpretation of heat. Can't wait to see what my creative friends will make with this code word :) Thank you so much Barb, Kylie and ATCAS Team for having me and thank you so stopping by and leaving me a comment :)

For this card, I went back with Christmas Card. I took a grey 100lb card stock and die cut it with the cover plate. Only I did not completely cut through it. Since its a thick card stock, it takes me three runs through my Cuttle bug to cut, I just did one. It gave a very deep embossed look. I then inked the panel is grey and red Distress inks. To finish, I added die cut sentiment.
I hope you enjoyed my card... I have used Doodled Christmas Candles Cover Plate Die, Be Jolly Phrase Dies and Distress inks

Guest Designer - The Flower Challenge #33 [Reminder]

Hey lovely friends! Have you played at the challenge "The Flower Challenge" for the month of June. Here is a reminder card I made as a Guest Designer :) Once again I want to thank Vivian and the Flower challenge team for having me :)

I am also excited as I am sponsoring a prize for the challenge from my own Stamp line "Dee's Artsy Impressions" under the umbrella of STAMPlorations. You can find my illustrations HERE.


This month the challenge is to "Focus on Background Stamping" and like last time I decided to use another one of my Floral stamp sets "Blossom Sprays #3" to make my background. Let me show you my card...

To make the card, I took a french grey card stock and stamped the floral cluster multiple times to make my background. I then pencil colored the images, added some enamel dots with the sentiment strips. To make the look unique, I partially colored the petals in pink and white. I also used different colors of yellow to color my lily. I have also usedLittle Love Birthday Wishes and PrismaColor Pencils.

Here is another look...

I hope you liked my card, don't forget to play along with the Flower challenge. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)
