For a Princess!

Hello everyone!

Here is my latest tag for  Beyond Grey Challenges- Make your own embellishment... I chose to create a tag and decorate it with a handmade dress embellishment :)

The top of the dress is made with paper with very little stamping. The bottom is a 3 layers of kitchen paper, tulle and lace which I have gathered and glued at the waist. You can find the tutorial for this dress with template here.

I have used white, gold and silver colors for my tag and have embellish it with pearls, lace, ribbons and handmade roses. 

To add extra shine and sparkle, I glued Prima glass glitter on the paper skirt and  love the way it glitters :)

Here is another pic:

Shaker card(s)

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing another shaker card I made using this file from cameo.

To make this card, I first cut the front white sentiment in my cameo. Next I cut a piece of acetate and glued it inside using glossy accents. Then, I put thin strips of foam tape along the edge of the white piece to make it a window.  Finally, I spread red sequence on the base of my cardstock and covered it with this white window.

Here is the front view.

I love how my card turned out and made one for Dad too :)

Hope you like it :)

Timeless memories!

Hello friends!

Sharing today another special project I made as an inspiration for Beyond Grey Challenges- mixed media.

This is a 6x7 inch mini album I made for a friend. The cover is made using different mediums such as embossing paste, mists, glass glitter. The beautiful papers are from Prima's 'Time Traveller Collection'.

I used stencils to apply embossing paste on the background and then misted it with dylusion's ink sprays. I have also done stamping and added prima glass glitter on it.

You can see all the sparkle and shine here.

Finally I embellish it with flowers, stamens, metal chain and few die cuts.

Here are few inside pages where you can store those precious memories.
