Pineapple Thanks

Hi all 

Made a card using the inspiration photo from Paper smooches June challenge. I had thought of  the daisies and chevron after seeing the spikes of pineapple. Here are the steps for the card
1. Diecut the white cardstock using stitched rectangle die. 
2.Embossed more than half of the card with chevron embossing folder. 
3.Distressed a cardstock with rasberry and mustard seed and diecut daisies.For the leaf i used paper smooches loopy leaf die which was actually found in my scraps. I think i was supposed to do a background with distress inks green and yellow followed by stenciling of the pattern ,which i did not like and i thought of cutting the leafs instead of throwing. Finally put in to use now. 
4. Sentiment is from the hope stampset which is also from Papersmooches. I remembered that i won this stampset in the challenge by savanaah long back , i recollected only when going through old posts as i started crafting after 4 yrs now.

Hibiscus Anniversary wishes

Hi all

Made my first masking card. It seems challenges make me think more and active. So thought i would participate more often and try new techniques even though i feel my stamping is pretty basic. Now that i gradually feeling good when stamping(no fear) ,i wanted to try out more. 

Here are the steps for the cardmaking
1. I stamped the hibiscus (mudra stamps from India) randomly with versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder and started wetting the paper followed by coloring with watercolors. 
2. Stamped the leaves with versamark and heat embossed with pearl green embossing powder. 
3. I found that after coloring my flowers were not as bright as they were first before coloring so tried stamping again with versafine and clear embossed. As i didnot have MISTI it was hard to stamp properly as my cardstock also curled up with coloring but finally stamped properly except two which you can see in the card. 
I would have thrown the card in my scraps if i had not heard in the video of Kristina when she found few watercolored droplets in the inside of the card that 'its fine with me as it looks really like a handmade card'. This made me stop me from throwing and it actually looks like a blurred image. 
4.Blinged it up with rhinestones. Stamped the sentiment and heat embossed which again has some mistakes. My white embossing powder is almost 6 yrs old and it actually turned to little yellow. I had to buy antistatic pouch and powder soon. 
I have lots to improve but happy with my first attempt.

First One layer card

Hi all
Made a one layer card first time. Its a simple card but i always had fear of stamping on the cardstock but finally happy with the outcome that too with first attempt.  Stamped the swirls and butterfly with versamark ink and clear embossed the image. Felt this sentiment will be appropriate as the swirls had hearts. will take a pic in the sun tomorrow so that  the shine due to embossing on the card is visible.
