Happy Hello !

A very Happy hello to my creative friends ! Back with cool colors again ! I was inspired by the patterned strips and flowers from this fresh spring mood board.
Started by blending salty oceans ,peacock feathers and cracked pistachio distress inks on a card stock panel.Then flicker water over it for some interest.After it was completely dry,stamped only  part of  the Bold blooms Stamp (PABD) with archival ink.

 On another panel clear Heat embossed a beaded pattern using Strips Stamp set(Winnie & Walter)and watercolored loosely with lime green color.Used another stamp from the same set to create the black & white strips.Arranged them on the card base.used Rectangled and Triangled set(Winnie & Walter) to mimic washi tape.
The sentiment is from The Big the Bold and the Happy (Winnie & Walter). Finished off with few sequins.

Matching envelope for the card

Trendy Triangles

Back to my favorite(and most repeated)fresh color combo :) Yellow & blue with lime green.

Dabbed Mustard seeds,salty oceans and peacock feathers Distress inks on acrylic block,misted water and smooshed it on the card stock.

I totally love anything geometrical,had fun creating the pattern (though simple one) using Rectangled & Triangled set.Used some more hand-cut triangles to embellish the card. Sentiment is from The Big the Bold and the Happy set. Made few tiny triangles using stickles to finish the card.

CAS Birthday card

Hello  friends how have you all been doing ?
(If you noticed) I had taken a blogging break but could not stop myself from joining the  Winnie & Walter's 3rd Birthday bash celebrations ;)
And here is my card ..

does it look familiar ? Quite a repetition of ideas on this one ;) 
Started by applying texture paste though Big Bang Sci-fi Star Creative Screenings ,next heat embossed on acetate using Mini Scenery: Madison.I had this bold colored piece made using alcohol inks which I layered beneath the acetate.

Heat embossing again for the happy from The Big the Bold and the Happy.Birthday also from same set.

A matching envelope for the card.

Interactive cards with PABD stamps & Dies

Hello friends..we are just a day away from 2017 ! last days with 2016 :) Here I am sharing my final post as PABD design team. I have mostly created CAS and Mixed media cards with PABD stamps and dies So  I decided to do something different for my last post, interacive cards...The techniques I love but have not attempted much :) I also managed to use pps.here comes the first one ,

Lots of Floral fantasy on this one and fussy cutting too ;) lets pull the tab

do you see something ?

..tada a slider card.

Now the next one, looks quite boring ?

lets open it ,

looks simple but its fascinating to see the circle twist and pop (I know a video would have been cool..lazy me !)

A Special Thanks to Dr.Sonia for the Inspiration and a lovely card based on this mechanism :)

and the final one ..(May not look like but )took lots of time and trials :)

A v-fold mechanism with stamped,water-colored and fussy cut images.Coloring all these images at once made me feel like being in school, drawing class!

Its the last post for 2016 on my blog too :) I would like to thank you all for the love,appreciation and encouragement.Its has been a wonderful journey learning new techniques, making new friends now Its time to take a break.Time to say bye for a while ! I will be back sometime in 2017.Till then I wish you a

Very Happy healthy & crafty 2017!
