Crafty Meraki - June 12th 2021

 Hello friends! I am back with Crafty Meraki goodness. Crafty Meraki just completed its First Anniversary and has added lots of new amazing stamps and dies. Today I am featuring some of the previously released stamps and dies. My focus was on the Hello word die and I paired it with two different stamp sets. Let me show you what I made... 



For my first card, I decided to make clean and simple card inspired by the Pantone colors 2021. I stamped the floral cluster and colored it following no line water coloring technique. I then adhered it on grey card stock and placed a tone on tone die cut hello with some black foam dimension. Simple and fun!I used Gansai Tambi Watercolors for coloring.
Here is a close up...


For my second card, I clear embossed the butterfly background on orange card stock. I then inked it with darker tones of pink and purple inks. To finish I added the sentiment hello only this time I also added the die cut hello frame, Fun and easy to make. Here is a close up...



I have used the following products for these cards Love you Mom, Fluttering Feathers and Hello Shadow Word die

 Hello friends! I am back with another spotlight project over at the STAMPlorations blog. I hope I will be able to inspire you. Today I am exploring a stencil. I mean I am not using it the way I usually use... set it up on card stock and ink it up. But today I decided it to use just a part of the stencil for my card. Art Flowers 2 stencil is great not only for some gorgeous background but also you can use the flowers individually to make your spring field :) Let me show you... 




I used Art Flowers 2 and Party Time Stamp set

Crafty Meraki - May 8th 2021

 Hello friends! I am back with Crafty Meraki goodness. Today I am featuring "Wings of Hope" stamp set along with "Happy Birthday shadow word die"  These products are a part of #MERAKICHEER release. Don't forget to check out the Instagram account for loads of inspiration featuring the newest products.

Let me show you what I made... 
I wanted to keep the die cut sentiment as the focal part of the card and at the same time make the background interesting. Water coloring is something that makes every background charming. I used a combination of peach and blue with a touch of copper for my loose water colored background. I then stamped the butterflies for a tone on tone effect. The sentiment was cut out from a copper metallic card stock.
Here is a close up...
