Happy New Year – 2016

Hey. Happy New Year  :)

It’s been a really long time since I posted here.

Life has been very busy, and this translated into me not making any blog posts. I have a toddler who has started to run(not walk). After work it’s pretty much two to three hours before she goes to sleep. And there is a ton of household work to be done after that. So I’m pretty much zonked during the weekdays.

I have been crafting then and there during the weekends, and I have been shopping as well. LOL.

I recently made a bunch of cards for New Year for my friends. Here is one of them

IMG_20160102_211518_HDR_1451749589659

I stamped the Lily with Berry Sorbet(2nd generation), Berry Sorbet, and Pure Poppy on my card front. The leaves were stamped(after masking the flower with a mask made from an old envelope) with Limeade Ice and Simply Chartreuse.

The sentiment happy was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black. The sentiment “NEW YEAR” was put together using the LF Milo’s ABCs set, and stamped using versamark. I then heat embossed the sentiment “NEW YEAR” using Wow Pearl Embossing powder on a piece of white cardstock, and then wiped my onyx black ink over it. (I lost my HA white embossing powder, and don’t have black cardstock) Mounted the sentiment using foam tape, and then mounted the entire panel onto a card base.

I used the MISTI stamping tool for alignment and mass producing purposes.

As a final touch, made a few splatter with simply chartreuse to balance out the card, based on Tejal‘s suggestion. Hope you like the card :)

Entering this card into a new challenge in town – Paru’s card making challenge.

Here’s my daughter’s first birthday invitation in case you were curious. Sorry for the poor picture. That is all I have of it :(

Made this card for the current RIC – Escada

Here is the card I made

DSC00888

I die cut 2 pieces of white cardstock using the second largest SSS stitched rectangle die. I made a stencil from one piece using the Cheery Lynn large flourish, and blended in mustard seed, spiced marmalade and rusty hinge distress inks. Ifirst blended in mustard seed throughout, and then blended in spiced marmalade from the edges, and then lightly touched the tips with rusty hinge. I then stamped a sentiment from Mama Elephant and cut it out, and pasted it onto the mat. I then mounted the arrangement onto a white base card.

I love the Runway inspired challenge. You should try it out too!

Hope you like the card. Thanks for dropping by.
