Persian Motifs

Hello everyone!! I'm here to share a card that I made recently. I recently got a few stamp sets from Altenew!! I've been waiting to play with them for a while and finally got a chance to ink them up. Here's what I made:

I used the Persian Motifs stamp set and gold embossed it on watercolor paper. Most of the time, mainly due to my laziness, I try to color with my markers. I wanted to try watercolors with this image, right from the time I saw this card by Jennifer McGuire :) I used distress inks Broken china and bundled sage for watercoloring. I really enjoyed watercoloring this piece.

I gold embossed the sentiment 'thanks' from Winnie & Walter - The Big, the Bold and You. I did not have any card base that matched this blue. So I inked a white card base with broken china and adhered the water colored panel in an angle.

This is one of the pieces I colored for Kathy's 30 day coloring challenge. You can see what I color everyday on my Instagram.

Thanks With Roses

Hello everyone!! I'm here to share a card that I made today.

As many of you might already know, Kathy's 30 day Coloring challenge is on. You can see more details here. It's about spending a few minutes each day to color images. I decided to try the no-line coloring with the Winnie & Walter roses. Those of you following me on Instagram might have already seen these roses. I stamped the roses with Distress ink ripe persimmon and colored them with my markers.

For the background, I inked a piece of white card stock with distress inks tumbled glass, broken china and evergreen bough. The sentiment 'thanks' is from Winnie & Walter - The Big, the Bold and You stamp set. I added a few sequins that I got from Winnie &Walter along with my stamps.

On Your Wedding

Hello everyone!! I'm here to share a card that I made today. Many of you might know Winnie & Walter Stamps. They are celebrating their 2nd Birthday (belated) Bash this month. Winnie & Walter stamps is one of the first few stamp companies that I knew and I've been following them almost from the beginning. I'm happy to take part in their celebration by making a few cards (hopefully!!).

Here's what I made today inspired by Taheerah's inspiration pic:

I used the Mini Scenery: Do You See What I See? stamp for the background and gold embossed it on black cardstock. I gold embossed a few roses from The Big, the Bold and Extras and water colored them. For the flowers, I used Distress Ink Tattered rose (I smushed the ink pad on my acrylic block and picked it up with my brush) and for the leaves I used Yasutomo Pearlescent Watercolor - it has a light shimmer to it. I mounted the flowers and leaves on foam tape to give some dimension.

I gold embossed the wavy banner from The Big, the Bold and Extras on a piece of black card stock. I assembled the sentiments and gold embossed it inside the banner. I had to bend the 'wedding' to go with the curve of the banner. Check this video from Kristina Werner where she shows how to bend the stamp. I used the same technique. I used foam tape on the banner to give it a dimensional look.

I'm happy with this card. What do you think?

And here's wishing Winnie & Walter many more successful years to come!!

Romantic Wedding Window

Hello everyone!! It's time for a new challenge here at the Unstampabelles. Our new theme is 'Looking forward, looking backward' with a twist of adding a window or mirror. Here's what I've made to inspire you:

I used the Romantic Window Silhoutte by Heather M. I cut it with my Cricut and colored with markers. The tiny flowers on the top of window are layered.

The swirly die cut is an svg from Bird's cards. I added a few pearls on the flowers and on the swirly die cut.

Susan is offering 2 beautiful dies for the winner this month.

Hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this month. Can't wait to see what you create for the challenge.

Christmas Pines on Kraft

Hello everyone!! Hope you all had a great weekend!! We had a snowstorm and had to stay indoors. It sure looked beautiful.

Well, on to some great news now!! I'm on the design team for the Rudolph Day Challenges. Yay!! So this is my first post for the challenge.

So here's what I made for my first challenge post.

I decided to CASE one of my earlier cards. You can see my original car here.  I stamped the pine leaves from Inkadinkado Branches stamp set with Hero Arts Forever Green ink. The pine cones are from Joanna Sheen Make A Wish set, which I inked using markers and colored them. I used the correction pen to add some snow.

The sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy stamps Christmas Penguins set. I embossed it with brown embossing powder. After seeing both, I should say I love this one on kraft!!

So what so you think of this card? Please let me know. I hope I have inspired you to make something for this challenge. Do check what the other designers have created to inspire you. Please visit Rudolph days challenge blog here to see more inspiration and submit your creations.
