All things grow with love

Hey all, happy Thursday! Hope you all are gearing for the weekend. The week is flying off pretty fast. I have been really busy!
My daughter had to see the doctor for her ankle, and the she had CT scan, and we are still waiting for the report, but she is already changed from the previous cast to a new aircast on Tuesday. It was a crazy busy day for me, that it took me yesterday whole day to get over the Tuesdays's tiredness. The new aircast, was bit uncomfortable, she and had a sleepless night. Thankfully she got used to it now, and doctor had said the cast need to be on for 6 weeks.
Then physiotherapy to follow. I think it will take a few weeks for her to heal fully. But she is trooper, she is attending school without a single day miss.

Ok, guys, sorry for off topic. Now to the card๐Ÿ˜…
I didn't had any time or intention to craft, but yesterday night manged to sit down for a few minutes.
I  used Uniko originally organics stamps, inked in Su wild wasabi and then used the marsgraphic 3000 duo markers to color , and the sentiment is also from the same set.
The butterfly was a last minute addition, it is was sitting on my desk, die cut using water color paper. I used the zigs to add color and blended it with a water brush.
Rounded the corner of the base abd front to finish off. A super clean card with lots of white space.

Calling all Sistahs April Reminder

Hey all, its the 17th, I am joining all the other sistahs at CASual Fridays to remind for self check. Remember to check yourself for breast cancer!

If you are interested to join the Facebook group for the sistahs, click here.

For my card I had used the stamps and die from the Calling all sistah line.
I used the sentiment and die from that line.
The cloud die is from lawn Fawn. I used zigs to water color the rainbow.
The sentiment is lined with a gold glitter strip and added, a few splatters using the distress ink - squeezed lemonade, and a few jewels to finish off.

Stencil fun

Happy Monday everyone! The weather is warming up here, you can feel the heat slowly and the house feels warm too. We have ditched the winter gear since we returned from Sydney last week.
Monday evening also marks one week that my daughter fractured her ankle, we have to go next week to see the fractured is healed or not. I am really hoping that it is fixed, and we can move on to physiotherapy.

I made this card yesterday evening. It looks quite simple, but it did took me quite some time to execute it.

I used stencils here, started with a floral stencil, I bought this in India. I used pigment inks to sponge the design.

Then I used a masking paper on acard stock and ran through the big shot to get the butterfly stencil.

I sponged black soot distress ink on the edges of the butterfly, and then used zig clean color markers to color the inside.

I used silver gel pen to add some details to the butterfly, and added a vellum butterfly on to of it, just for fun.
I used a red gel pen and ran over the flowers. The sentiment is from STAMplorations and Woodware Crafts.
I finished off with few jewels, and added a dark grey glitter strip to the front a panel before adding it to the base.

Sunshine and rainbow

Happy Sunday everyone, those you are celebrating Easter - have great time with your loved ones!

I am up with another rainbow  card, well it just happened ๐Ÿ˜… I am like a little girl when it comes to rainbows! I love rainbows, and my face practically lits up every time I see one!

I have used only Paper Smooches stamps and die cut here today.

I started with die cutting the light house first, then I used zig clean color brush to water color the rainbow colors panel on the base.
I then inlaid the die cut and sponged the sunshine stencil from memory box, using Hero Arts Neon ink - Sunshine.
The next step was to add it to the base card, and then I stamped the birds and sentiment from Summer Lovin set. As usual a few jewels to finish off....wait that's  not it ๐Ÿ˜… - I also added some glossy accent to the inlaid light house, and I ๐Ÿ’› how it looks! Hope you find this card interesting!

Guest designer ATCAS

Hey all, I am happy to be a GD for Addicted To CAS for the fortnight.

The code is Rainbow

I am using this masking and blending techniques after many moons. I simply used masking paper and masked the top corner and used the inks in the shades of rainbow to shape a kite.
Light blending using blue ink, and I also stamped small outlined circles using HLS  stamps, and the sentiment and chevron stamp is also from the same set Mix mash from HLS.
A close to one layer card, super simple.
