Rain or shine

Hello friend,

I am here to share a card which I made for Jane's Doodles Blog.

I have used Love Birds and Rain or Shine stamp sets for the card. Background is made using distress oxides.
I have manipulated the bigger bird stamp by masking the wing and then added hand drawn, fussy cut, colored wing to make it look like he is holding the umbrella for her...:)

Thanks a lot for being here.

Jane's Doodles Blog Hop

Hello Crafty friends,

We are having stamps release blog hop @ Jane's Doodle's . 3 new sets are added to the store.

   Mother's Day                                  ABC's                                         Bloom

Mother's Day- SALE            ABC's                  Bloom

Due to delay from manufacturer, mother's day set couldn't released earlier but you can see how versatile all the sentiments are ( except one) ! Fonts and sizes are just perfect! Second set is ABC's.
Once again, size of the letters are on the spot, small enough to use in the background and big enough to form sentiment.

For my first card, I have used ABC's and Mother's day set to create a card for Father's day....told is versatile...:)

The background is created with ABC set. I used same letters to emboss DAD on blue CS. Main sentiment is from Mother's day set.

For the second card, I have used Bloom set. These are large blooms, fun to play with and easy to color. Even fussy cut was super easy.

I stamp-mask-stamp on 5x7" white panel. I colored the blooms with mission gold water colors. I chose muted colors to give vintage feel to the card. I fussy cut the top part of the panel. I also painted some stripes in metallic golden color on the base card. I used foam sheet under the panel to give it some dimension. The leaves resting on striped part are fussy cut and tucked  under the raised panel. 

I hope you can see the layers. I had so much fun making these cards. 

Now let's see what we have for you for the hop.

There will be one randomly selected winner from any of the blogs who will get one stamp set of her/his choice. 
All the stamps are 25% off through weekend. Jane will announce the winner on Monday!

To Bee or Not To Bee - Blog Hop

Hello Friends,

I am so proud to be part of this blog hop - to bee or not to bee. Yes! our purpose is to spread awareness about bees and their role in apicultural products. Also to support initiation of the Slovenian Beekeepers’ Association that the May 20th is declared World Bee Day by the United Nations (UN).

Bees are some of the hardest working creatures on the planet, and because of their laborious work ethic, we owe many thanks to this amazing yet often under appreciated insect.

Our lives – and the world as a whole – would be a much different place if bees didn’t exist. To illustrate this fact, consider these numbers: bees are responsible for pollinating about one-sixth of the flowering plant species worldwide and approximately 400 different agricultural types of plant.
It is sad that their colonies are declining. We really have to be aware how and why this is happening.

HERE is an interesting video I came across from TED talk.

Few things we can do to help bees' sustainability 
 * Plant flowering plants if you can.
 * Avoid the use of pesticides.
 * Whenever possible, choose native plants.  Native plants will attract more native pollinators.

So as our today's theme is bee, I made this card 

The world is full of wanna-bees. What if we just  bee ourselves? Don't you think life would be much easier and more beautiful that way? The other message I was trying to give through this card is how our ever expanding cityscape is engulfing the natural habitats of bees. I hope I manged to do so.

I love Math Challenge # 5

Hello crafty friends,

I have an exciting news to share with you today! I am joining I love Math Challenge as a design collaborator which is initiated by my friend Milka Gubo (crafty Milka) . This is one of a kind challenge which is brain child of Milka.

We are starting challenge #5  and it's theme is Venn Diagram. Venn Diagram – any two (or more) intersecting shapes with an intersecting portion (portions) having common properties of both (all).

Here are some examples to simplify the concept.

Image result for colored venn diagram                         Image result for colored venn diagram

Hope that helps.

 Here is my card

I used one die to cut three hearts form red, orange and yellow card stock. I overlapped yellow heart on red and replace the intersecting part with piece of orange heart. As you know, intersecting part has to have properties of both the shapes i.e. orange has both red and yellow in it.
For the background, I uses Simon Says Stamp’s die. Sentiment is by Lil’ inker. I thought it was perfect mathch for this inlaid, intersecting hearts.

It was fun designing this card. It is good to give your brain a little workout...:) ! Please join us in this super fun challenge. I am sure you will enjoy creating something out of the box.
Thank you Milka for this opportunity...:)!

Please check the main post for rules and link up HERE!

Play along if you like to challenge yourself...:) ! Trust me it is so much fun!
Thanks for being here!
