  • 'Flower Shoppe' September 2021 Release Instagram hop and prizes to be won!

    Hi everyone! Hope you are having a good week. And, we are here to make it more better - with Instagram hop and prizes to be won celebrating our latest release ‘Flower Shoppe’ for September 2021 :-) If you don’t follow me on Instagram, please do so here. I would love to welcome you in our little tribe. We do share lots more inspiration (and entertainment) over there, than we do here on the blog alone. It’s a fun place to be and yes, every month we have giveaways too :) I am loving the July 2021 Small Die of the Month from Spellbinders and I used it again this time to create one more shaped mini slimline card :) {and I have planned one more card for this release using the same die. I think I might have to put this die away so I can pay attention to other dies before they get jealous...} Key Ingredients: You Are Beautiful stamp set (on VaradaSharma.com | on Etsy.com) Spellbinders Small Die of the Month - July 2021 Gansai Tambi watercolors Derwent Inktense pencils Steps: Using PowerPoint plan, size and print image on Canson watercolor paper. Cut it out. I used my Brother Scan and Cut machine but fussy cutting works equally well. Die cut a black panel using the largest two dies from Spellbinders July 2021 SDOM. Arrange the fussy cut image on this panel and die cut it so that it gets the dotted outline exactly where you need it. Color with Gansai Tambi watercolor and add shading with Derwent Inktense pencils. I also added highlights with a gold paint pen. Adhere the image on the top black panel. Color and tuck the leftover pieces of leaves around this image. Create shaped cardbase with just the outer die from same die set with black cardstock. Attach the top most panel and embellish with gold gems. I left sentiment out of this. I plan to create several stripes of sentiments some day and keep them handy to use as needed. But for right now this project will be sentiment free. Supplies List: For your convenience, I am sharing links to the supplies I’ve used for these cards – click on the picture or link to go directly to the product. Wherever available, I have used affiliate links, which means when you make a purchase, I receive a small commission (at no extra cost to you) which I use to run this blog. I truly appreciate your support! Hugs! ~Varada

  • Birthday card using Pocket Full of Roses

    Hi everyone, hope your Sunday is going good. While I was getting my project ready for our upcoming Instagram Hop (on the 14th!), I found a previously printed and foiled image on my desk. I just had to color it and make it into a card. This bright and cheerful card is what came out of that :-) I love how these blue flowers and yellow roses from our Pocket Full of Roses stamp set just pop on that black background. The die from Spellbinders Elegant Swivel & Sashay Card - APG Die of the Month Club April 2019 and Fun Stampers Journey Bright Days embossing folder complement the design perfectly. This embossing folder seems to be discontinued, so I will link to a similar one - Sun Rays - which I think will work equally well. Key Ingredients: Pocket Full of Roses - Digital Stamp (on VaradaSharma.com | on Etsy.com) Spellbinders Elegant Swivel & Sashay Card - APG Die of the Month Club April 2019 <<< This one is on Clearance right now :) Therm O Web Gina K Designs Glimmering Gold Fancy Foil Deco Foil Steps: Using PowerPoint plan, size and print the image with a laser printer. With the help of a laminator and Glimmering Gold Fancy Foil foil the design. Color with alcohol markers. I used Copics + Spectrum Noir alcohol markers because that's what I have. I think any other coloring medium of your choice would also work. Fussy cut it out when done and add a single piece of blue chunky glitter to blue flower centers. Using a piece of scrap paper stamp and banner cut the sentiment "Happiness Always" using Mermaid Lagoon distress ink. Create a shaped card with black cardstock and the scalloped edge die from Spellbinders Elegant Swivel and Sashay die set. Dry emboss the front of the card with Bright Days / Sun Rays embossing folder. Assemble with liquid glue and foam tape.
