Memories.. are FOREVER!

Hello Friends, its been a while I have blogged my creative journey and new inspiration with you all! However various challenges around the world tickled me to get into my creative juices.

Today I have a mixed media Canvas for you all inspired by 2 mixed media challenges and also introducing the Craftslane newly launched chips. You can see all the beautiful wooden chips here at the link Craftslane.

Now onto the project, I love keeping 2-3 colors on my canvas while leaving a lot of the white space allowing it to draw most of the focus on the element. Also I prefer to use words and phrases instead of photographs.

I chose the Frame and Memory as a inspiration from the More Than words challenge and the color palette from Mixed Media Art Challenge. Create mixed media textured background on which assembled on the various elements , chips , Prima flowers around a decorate Prima Frame.

Choose a Resin Frame around which all  the elements are assembled and also the word Forever. Memories are for forever hence Forever signifies Memory for me.

The color palette , flower and the butterfly resonates in my mixed media canvas.

Let me know how you liked my projects,
Until then Happy Crafting!

Welcome friends to a mini launch by Heartfelt Creations and its fabulous. The dies include some excellent frames , intricate borders to add the magic and elegant touch to your cards.

The entire team has many inspirations to share with you and here's what I have for you.

The final card measures 7"x 5" and is built on a white card base. The card has 4 layers and the top most layer has the filigree layout created. Cut a navy blue card stock which measures 1/8"less than the white card base. Cut another gold card stock that measures 1/8" less than the navy blue card stock. Take another white card stock and die cut the leafy borders and from a gold card stock die cut the solid border die from the Leafy border die set. Glue all the white leafy border onto the gold card stock die cut borders. In order to fill the sides and the grooves, die cut several pieces of the decorative die from the window box elements die. Strip them from the corners and middle and tuck it in alignment with the gold panel.
For the flowers, Stamp the flowering dogwood flowers and leaves from the window box elements die set on a white card stock using embossing ink. Sprinkle some gold embossing powder and then heat set it. Die cut all the flowers and leaves using the coordinating die. Apply a very light shade of the archival ink (Vibrant Fuschia) to the flowers and Library Green to the leaves. Sprinkle some water to the die cut flowers and leaves and then shape them. Heat set them so that the flowers retain the shape.
For the center focal frame die cut 3 piece of eyelet frame die from gold card stock and adhere to each other to create a sturdy frame. Stamp the sentiment with black archival ink on a white card stock and with a foam adhesive adhere it to the center of the card layout. Arrange all the shaped flowers and leaves around one corner of the center gold frame. Add a string and some pearls to finish the card.

Thankful Easel Card with fresh Butterfly collection

Hello Friends, welcome to another Wednesday Inspiration where we are creating our projects with newly released butterfly collection. I have made a easel card for you all using some basic shape cards, enchanted Mum and also some colorful butterflies.



It’s a small cute round easel card created with the decorative dies, enchanted Mum flowers and fluttering butterfly. Die cut 2 decorative round pieces from a white card using the  Eyelet Circle & Basics Small Die. Take a smaller circle size and die cut 2 pieces from the butterfly pattern paper collection. Distress the edges and then stick it to the base. For the easel, score at the middle and then fold the circle into half which will form the easel base. For the pattern paper cut it into half, distress the edge and then stick it to the easel base. For the Easel card take a further smaller die from the circle basic small die and die cut a pattern paper. For the next layer die cut a piece from the butterfly decorative circle die using a white card stock and then stick it to the middle of the pattern paper. Take the smallest circle die and die cut it from a black card stock. Die cut the word Thank you from silver card stock and stick it to the center. As a decorative insert die cut a piece from the circle decorate die from the Butterfly collection and then tuck it in at the top.For the flowers stamp and die cut several pieces of the enchanted Mum collection from a white card stock and plum archival ink. This time instead of spraying with water I have sprayed with some spray alcohol ink which stained the flowers yellow. Later heat dry them after shaping. Once the flowers are dried added more shades of dried marigold and picked raspberry. Heat set them again and at the end dabbed some glossy accents on the petals tip and sprinkle some crystal clear. For the leaves it is shaded using library green and leaf green archival ink and also sprinkled with crystal clear and heat set it after shaping the leaf ends.Stamp the butterfly image onto a white card stock using embossing ink and heat emboss with silver embossing powder and heat set it. Color the stamp and embossed image with zig brushes and then die cut using the co rodinating die.
