Feather card - with inka golds

Hi friends,
I felt ecstatic after recieving so many beautiful comments and messages on my last post and video in which I featured the viva decor Inka golds. The last experience with the product was amazing so I decided to use it one more time and try few more tips n tricks.
I personally love creating cards because they are quick and give me 100% happiness but I want to mention all the steps can be very easily used to create layouts,tags and altered art.
 So let's begin today's project and the things u will need are :
Inka gold -gold
Inka gold - lava red
Inka gold - apricot
Distress ink -cracked pistachio 
Sizzix feathers die
Mini ink blending tool
Tonic trimmer
Craft mat
ATG (glue)
Tombow glue
Versa mark
Super fine detailed white EP
Pearls /sequence 

So guys !!grab all the supplies and let's start it together :)

Step1: die cut and emboss the feather from a white card stock and add gold on the tips fading downwards .

Step 2:die cut the arrows and paint them with red ,gold and apricot inka golds

Step 3: ink the card panel with cracked pistachio by using the mini foam blending tool. Apply two coats to get a more solid and even coverage .
😊TIP: always use the craft mat when you work with paints and inks. It is heat proof stain poof and super easy to clean.

Step 4: cut the coloured panel into four stripes of different thicknesses. Now start adding little strokes of gold using a small piece of foam. This will give it a beautiful golden distressed look.

Step 5: i embossed a sentiment on some vellum card stock using super fine white embossing powder. 
😊TIP:It is always a good idea to use a powder tool to remove any static /oil/ or debris which might attract the EP. This makes the EP stuck only to the versa mark:)

Finally we all all set to assemble the card together.try different arrangements and then stick them the way you liked the most. I added few flat back pearls and gold seqence to jaa up the project.

Here is the video link which shows you each and every step to make this beautiful card.
I hope u liked my post for today.
Feel blessed when I read all the amazing comments you guys leave for me. 
Stay happy...
And enjoy the rains !

Shabby chic banner garland

Hi friends ,

This project is very close to my heart as I made it for my daughters room. Both of us love pink and we always wanna be surrounded with this gorgeous colour .
I created a banner for her pin up board where she organises her school schedule and her other activities. 

Step 1:
I started by cutting 5 thick Kraft coloured triangles and 5 different pion patterned paper triangles( which were a little smaller than the Kraft triangles) I love the pion papers because they r so pretty and girly.

Step 2: 
I used clear bead gel and the beautiful tim holtz lace stencil to add some texutre on the triangles.

Step 3:
Next I stamped few Altenew vintage flowers and vintage roses with the help of my misti tool. Fussy cut them by hand.
I used the stampin up inks for these vibrant pretty blooms.I have a tiny video tute to introduce you to "Misti"

Step 4:
I wanted to use the super cute Julie Nutting wooden dolls for this project as my daughter loves them. I wanted to trim away the loop and it was easy with tonic scissors.

Step 5:
I used one of my spellbinders labels die to cut 5 pieces which i have placed at the base of my arrangement. There are lots of cute tags and elements in the pion stack and I trimmed and distressed them too.

Step 6: 
I punched some pink paper with the STAMPIN up border punch & added at the top. I sticked a pearl string and a white lace trim to add interest.

Step 7:
Final arrangement of the banner . I layered few pion elements and tags over each other. Then I placed the roses and leaves. I sticked the doll and a cute mini metal charm. To add a little bling I used the mariane crystals here and there. 
Finally i stringed all the five triangles through some seem binding and a cute banner was created .
Here are some close up shots :

My daughter absolutely loved it and will place it the way she wants.
I hope u too liked this post.

Thanks for stopping by
Lots of love
