Mermaid notepad | Altered notepad

Hello friends,
Today I am popping up to share something different which is an altered notepad. This one is very quick and simple.

I used some scrap paper and cut into different width and trimmed the length as per the notepad. Gave the edges a wave design using wave craft scissors and distressed the edges and glued them in layers to cover the notepad.

The mermaid tail is hand drawn and cut from colored paper. I have been hoarding some shell/ scales shaped flakes since many years and this was a perfect project to use them. So I glued them on the tail cutout and added some details with black gel pen. I then tucked it into one of the waves and glued it. Used white gel pen to add some splash and handwritten the sentiment.

Also made another version not using those scales.

Here is a short video too

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day ahead!!

Time to Bloom!

Hello friends,

Hope you are having a great week. Today I am back with another card which is inspired by few challenges.

First I stamped the image(Mudra - Wild Rose) in DI and then used the same DI for coloring. Added in details to image by using colored pencils. The sentiment is heat embossed and mounted on a foam base and added a border with a black gel pen. That's it, nothing too fancy here but I love this color combo and wanted to have a go with it for the Double D Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great time.

Floral Birthday Card

Hello Friends,
Today I am sharing a floral birthday card. I wanted to keep the sentiment in focus and not let the design overpower it.

First I stamped the bold sentiment (SSS) and then used DI to make the free hand floral design. Kept the card simple without any embellishments.

Hope you enjoyed your time here. Thanks for visiting !

I am sharing this card for following challenges

Easel Drawer Card

Today's project was supposed to a recycling one but it became a semi-recycled craft (I don't know if this is a proper word!). I was hoarding a drawer box since many years and wanted to upcycle it into a easel drawer card but unfortunately I almost broke the drawer and could not use it. Had to make a new drawer and only used the box, hence the semi-recycle  term :) .

Here is the picture from top.

I have used a gold oval die-cut and put a hand-drawn lady silhouette with pearls as jewelry. Added black pearls on the border, some flowers and hearts.

Drawer is made of cardstock and covered with PP (Papericious- Orange Fall). Bordered with golden pearls and added a red button using wire.

The top and the sides are covered with PP(Papericious- Orange Fall). Added the message "Rise and Shine" with flower bouquet sticker and lined with some tiny gemstone.

There is a video too.

Thanks for spending some time here. Have a great day!

Trio of Cards

Hey Friends,
Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Today I am sharing trio of cards made using same technique but different design.

First, I heat embossed the specific stamps on one side. I then masked that corner of the card and the design and blended some DI. Once I was happy with the color, I splattered some water over it. Then I used different sentiment on each one of them.

I liked the dolphin one the most, let me know your favorite.

Have a great weekend!
