Sending you special wishes

Hello friends! I hope that you all had a lovely week! 
Friday is here already and September is still looking bright for us out here 
which is so good to see since its almost time for winter now.
I have been posting for itsy bitsy every 1st and 3rd friday of the month and this is another inspiration post for their blog. Check out their blog for more detailed info on this project.
This one is really special to me!
I kind of spent a whole evening making this simple looking card happen but it was totally worth the effort.
That is my Little darlings stamped image (Little Darlings Sweet Daisies.).
I coloured it using promarkers.

The lavender flower you see here is from Petite daises soft touch collection by itsy bitsy.
The other two flowers are handmade with cherry lynn dies and I covered all the flowers with some texture paste to give it a lovely rough look.

These butterflies are stamped and fussy cut.
I then coloured with the same shades of lilac and purple to coordinate with the whole card.
So that’s about it from me today.
I hope you enjoyed my card! 
Happy weekend
See u soon !

Textured tag

Hello everyone ! 
This is my 3rd post of the week .... Kinda fun actually :) 
I made another tag !
Recently i won some wonderful Finnabair art extravagance texture pastes from Prima. 
I totally went crazy over them ! Love the texture and the look they have when they dry. 

So here is my tag 

Well what do u think ? 

I really enjoyed making this one it was done in about 2 hours tops. 
2 hours also because i didnt use a heat gun. 

so if you are wondering where the texture paste is 
 Its underneath all the embellishments. 
I started with inking the tag with spiced marmalade distress ink and then i sprinkled some water over it .
After it dried i used Finnabair's Art extravagance texture paste -White sand with a stencil.
Photo credits & Prima Marketing
  You can see how this texture paste is drying almost clear and has that lovely sand grain effect ! 
I totally love the texture and the fact that i can see through the paste ! 
i would totally suggest this to anyone ! 
Another great thing is it has gluing properties , so if you had to add texture and then add some buttons or sparkles or something else on top of all that texture it would really stay in place when it dries. 

Here is how i pretty much constructed my Background.
 The flowers are handmade. Again i have used some texture paste on top of it to give it that rock candy look.
 I love to use Tulle to make my bows its so dreamy !!

 So thats about it from me today ! Hope that you like my work !
thank you !!! 

 Challenges : 

cheery lynn designs  (Die used - gardenia strip)
scrap it girl (used stencil)
mixedmediamojo  (Used fall colors and texture paste)

Cake slice boxes - christmas

Hi everyone
I hope you all had a great week.
Over at the PPS blog we have a challenge this month with the theme “PARTY PARTY” , so today i will show you a few gift boxes that can be used as party favours .
I love the idea of shaped boxes so i have created these shabby cake slice boxes ! Hope u like them.
I mostly used Prima Seashore collection papers here . They work very well with the shabby theme that i was going for. I used Sizzix Cake Slice die to cut out my boxes ! Here are the individual boxes
I had more of a Christmas theme in mind,  since we have started preparing for Christmas around here already !
I used some tulle and some twine for making the bows, which kinda gives it a dreamy look. And the jingle bell adds to the Christmas look :)

These flowers are made with Joy craft – floral flourish die
loveeee this one ! its a total must have for making quick flowers !
I hope you like these boxes and would love to make some yourself. Do join us in the Party challenge this month! Just upload your entry to our gallery and give a link back in our forum here!
Cant wait to see your work!
