I have 7 cards today showcasing the release stamps.
The first one is a made using the small stamp from the Originally Organics, I used the sentiment, and used more leaves around it. Colored using zigs, and Marsgraphic 3000 markers. added a green satin ribbon, and a few jewels to finish off. I also stamped few small leaves from the winter background vine set.

The 3rd one is a gorgeous card, I love this one, you might have seen the viseo I posted on FB and Instagram to show the shimmer. I kept the background stamps outlines, and used the big mandala to color, and add wink of stella to it, fussy cut to add to the card. The sentiment is from Simply Said I.


A look at the shimmer.

HLS CASE Otober

Hi everyone, it's October already, where are the months sweeping by?? I just remember this year starting!





 Sponsored by HLS.

 






Anyways, we start with the first challenge of the month at HLS, which is CASE, Out designer this month is the very talented Birgit. She has come up with a gorgeous card for us to CASE.


I was inspired by the background, and the center focus image panel. and the sentiment on black.
For my card I used HLS - Mix mash stamps. I started with stamping the circles in yellow pigment ink, and then used Heidi Swapp's mixed media script stamp to stamp in shade of blue for the background to be completed. I used Altenew  roses in shades of red, stamped and fussy cut.
I added a scalloped circle, and the roses with a white thread tucked under. The sentiment is from HLS. A few bluish sequins to finish off. The front panel is framed at the top and bottom with a yellow card stock.

Introducing Marvelous Mehndi and Simply said II

Hello all, today we are continuing with our introduction of the new stamps for the release. You might have seen the sneak peeks of these 2 sets already.

I have used only the Marvelous Mehndi set here today.
I chose the big mandala stamp, and wanted to focus it. I used gold gel pen, and markers to color it. Added a black jewel at the center, and many gold jewels along the circle on the design. I hope I haven't overloaded the jewels here today ;) It looks ok to my eyes though. I used gold card stock to line the front panel to add to the base.

A close up at the jewels, which have blended pretty well with the colors.

For my second card, I thought of adding the stamps like we do freehand henna/mehndi in India. It is been many years that I did a freehand henna.
I used the stamped in a freehand flowing manner, and colored using only 3 colors, I wanted a lot of orange to mimic the real mehndi on hands.
A gold strip  and gold twine to finish of the card, along with  a few jewels.

The second card has some sewing on it. I used the leaves for sewing in back stitches. The flowers is a 2 step stamp. I colored the stamps again with markers. For the dots, I aded jewels, I love the look of it, looks like dew drops to me!
