{Pin}spirational Challenge #55

Hi All..I wanted to share a card I made for the {Pin}spirational Challenge55.The inspiration picture this week is of a sweet little girl.It is a beautiful picture which shows the innocence of a child and how they are mesmerised by little things.I feel once we grow up we stop appreciating the little things in life and I thought the sentiment would be a good fit for this project.When I saw the digital image of Nevaeh I knew she would be perfect for today's challenge. I used Spectrum Noir markers to color her and I am so happy to have found these markers.These are absolutely amazing. For her face and skin I used copics.The image of Nevaeh is from Saturated Canary.They are the sponsors for this week and they have some beautiful images.
I am attaching the inspiration picture below.

Join us at {Pin}spirational Challenges this week Lots of beautiful creations from the team to help you get started.So do play along.

Happy Bird-day

Here is another card I made for Indian Craft Room's ICRC28 "Create a card/project with SPEECH BUBBLE + PUN/WITTY SENTIMENTS".I created the bird diecut and the tweet phrase with Create A Critter cartridge.The cartridge is so versatile that it can be used a lot.If you are a beginner to Cricut I will highly recommend the Create A Critter and Create a Critter 2 cartridges.Either one is good for beginners,I have both and I use them a lot as you can see from my cards.They are superb for beginners.
For the background I used pattern paper from my stash and punched out the butterflies.The sentiment is from ICR's digis this month.

Pinspiration Post

Hi all...I made this card for my first Pinspirational challenge Design Team post.I am so excited about it.For my card I used a digi from Bugaboo and I love it.To make my card I used the distress ink pad faded jeans for the umbrella,crushed olive for the leaves and momento markers to color the flowers.I punched out flowers and embossed them.Embellished it will lace and rhinestones. The inspiration picture is a very cute one and it is so appropriate for this month..April showers bring may flowers.

Speech Bubbles

Hi all,
Wow it is April already..Time is flying for me.Feels like this year just started but already it is the beginning of April.So new month means..we have an exciting new challenge on Indian Craft Room... ICRC28.The challenge for this month is Card/Project with a Speech Bubble and the twist being Witty/Pun sentiment.
Here is my take on the project..
 For my card I used 2 stamps for the background.The flower is from Hero arts stamps.I stamped it with Versafine Black ink. The wordings stamp is from Inkadinkado and I used Vintage Photo distress ink and used Faded Jeans distress ink for the blue background.
 I liked this sentiment and thought it would be good to use on the card so I printed out the speech bubbles and glued it to the card.
I am adding the storyboard for  your information from Indian Craft Room.Do give it a try and you will definitely come up with something amazing.Do check out this months digis as well...they are too good to miss.
