Pink Christmas with Mini Calendar!!!

Hello everyone!
Hope you all are well and ready for the Christmas festivities!

Today is a special day for me, It's my Birthday, so I made a special project which is really near to my heart! It's a wall hanging cum Mini Calendar!!!

For a long time, I wanted to make a Calendar always and This time I got such beautiful new chipboard sets. This is my DT project for Expressions craft stamps and made me inspire to create a new style! I fell in love with all my heart with these chippies. The reindeer is soooo majestic with all beautiful frames in 3 different sizes and gorgeously design, love it!
It took me to complete in 2 days! It was a labour of love, but completely worth it!😊

I will show how to create these step by step process!

I hoard this cardboard for a long time from a packaging and it has 3 scored lines too:). I covered it with pattern papers.

The scalloped frames and reindeer are highlighted by crystal clear powder and sparkling dots using glossy accents.

I applied the chalk paint to the snowflake and highlighted it with crystal clear powder for frosty winter effects. The flowers are spritz with sprays and highlighted too for more frosty textures!

For the LO, I toned down the color of the PP using chalk paint, texture paste and spray, added more snowflakes using Merry Christmas stencil.

To create the calendar tabs. I stamped them month wise using jet black ink and my favorite tool Misti, always made work so easy and quick for best results and applied different stencils month wise like on Dec month I applied snowflakes, Jan with new beginnings so applied stars and so on....... You can see the pics clearly.

Now time to assemble all the things I going to use them in a Shabby style, so I took a rough pic in advance, always helpful to create!

Here are the few close-ups:

Love the majestic look of Reindeer with wintery crystal texture frame!

I used natural hay, twigs and tiny pine cone here!

I added the Calendar using brads and I die cut these tiny tags showing The year 2018 from the same paper pack.  There is a pen to write some special event or day on the backside of the tab!
These are the rub-on!

Christmas bells with snow!

Hello to all!

Time to share another DT post for Expressions Craft Stamps!

What would be Christmas be like without the sound of Christmas bells and some snow? So I am featuring Christmas bells on this card to ring the holidays!

I started by stencilling the bells using DI and added snowflakes on them using snow paste.  Fussy cut them.

On a pretty plaid PP, I added a sentiment. and covered it with colored vellum sheet. Now die cut a stitched border and adhered it to the vellum sheet. Using the stencil I added some snowflakes on the vellum sheet by mixing some sparkly dots to snow paste.

A view from a different angle:

Die cut some pine boughs. Now arranged all the elements on my card base. Adhered my Christmas bells using pop dots and a string. Finished it with a tiny bow and some rhinestones. And in the last added some more snow paste to pine bough and at the edges of the card base to create some more textures and festive look!

Here is the matching inside!

Supplies used:
Cardstocks: Heavy white CS, Bottle green textured CS and deco green color vellum sheet
Pattern paper: Perfectly plaid from Lawn Fawn

For this card, I started by embossing biggest snowflakes in metallic Platinum using the Merry Christmas stencil on an off-white CS. And loosely watercolored them using my transparent Fuji watercolors.

The sentiment is also from the same stencil. I embossed some tiny snowflakes on a vellum strip too. Try to keep this fun card in festive colors!

You're purr-fect!

Hello everyone!

It is truly said, "Cats rule the World".  Today is National Cat day too!!! Here is the reference:
 Today I want to share a Purr-fect sweet cat card. I am glad to join at Cat Lovers blog hop and inspired by YNS sketch challenge too!
Janis is hosting this hop with an awesome array of prizes and today is the last day to participate! So hurry up guys still some time left:) 
And I am also joining this card to the concept of number 7 for I love Math Challenge!

I rotated the sketch and opted the color scheme too.

I love this cute stamp-" Jessica with her Kitty". She is so sweet with her cute kitty and fun to color.  I stamped the image in Jet Black archival ink on Bielo sheet and colored it with my Zig watercolor brush pens. Highlighted it with my Staedtler watercolor pencils too.  Applied pearl white dots on her hair and her frock for more fun. At all around the image gave a little shadow of grey color to highlight the image more. You can see below clearly in the image!

Using Double running stitch die, I die cut some rectangle sheets in blue and white color CS. On one of the sheet, I stamped 7 paw prints to match the concept of seven and you can see the watercolor effect on Kitty's paws :)D, I tried to give the reflection of her paw-print.
Now arrange them according to the sketch. The sentiment is also from the same set. And finished it with a cute heart!

Hope you all enjoyed this fun creation!
