Hello everyone! How are you doing? Did you know The Tropical Treasures is available at This is such a lovely and beautiful release that you shouldn't want to miss out! There is still time to hop along the Insta Hop, Blog Hop and Video Hop for your chance to win a $25 GV to CP Store. Here I have a couple of cards to share with you, Enjoy :)

The first one is a one layer card with simple stamping. I stamped the leaf image and sentiment from Leave Me in Paradise and Pineapples and Smiles stamp set with Lucky Clover Distress Ink and CP's Midnight Ink respectively.

Then I added splatters of black and gold inks to enhance the beauty of the card design.

Here comes the second card which I made for CP's Instahop. 

I colored the pineapple stamp from Pineapples and Smiles Stamp Set with watercolor brush pens.

Then I spritz water on the stamp and stamped on the card base. This created a beautiful floral watercolor background.

I also added splatters of black paint, stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set - fussy cut it and foam mounted on the card front along with some gold twine. :)

I hope you like these cards and got inspired. Here is the list of supplies I used in today's post.

Hello everyone! Welcome to Tropical Treasures Blog Hop. In July 2018, Catherine Pooler released a wonderful Stamp Of Approval Box called Tropically Yours. So this hop all about Tropically Yours SOA Release along with coordinating Tropical Treasures goodies!! If you have arrived here from Erica's blog then you are right on track. If you miss the hop start again from HERE.

Yay! Tropical Treasures is now available in the shop. Go ahead and have fun shopping! :)

So now let's move on the cards I made for this blog hop. 

Once the ink dry, I went ahead and stamped the sentiment in first and second generation stamping. Then stamped the birds, fussy cut them and adhered over the card front. 

The second card features the same Toucan Do It stamp set. I stamped and masked the flowers, water colored them with Be Mine, Mardi Gras and Limoncello ink pads from The Carnivale Collection Bundle. Then I fussy cut the lower portion of the flower panel to form a beautiful look.

Next I stamped the bird and adhered on top of the flowers. The sentiment was stamped in a hand drawn speech bubble which I fussy cut and adhered over the card front.

And that pretty much finishes the cards for this hop. I hope you like them and got inspired. Thank you so much for stopping by. Take care and I'll see you soon! :)

Hi everyone! Welcome back! It's been a couple of weeks since I posted anything here. The reason behind my absence was we've moved to a new place. The place, the house and the environment is pretty good but I miss my mom, my hometown and my kitchen very much. It took me a week to get adjusted to this atmosphere, I was literally crying like a baby for my mom! I miss her so so much! But I made up my mind and hence here I am today :D

This was the second batch of cards I made in this new home, I already made a few for my Craftangles DT work and working on few projects for the upcoming Catherine Pooler's Release Hop. A little busy me! Anyhow, I used the newly released Origami Style Thinlit Dies from Sizzix for my projects today! 

Products Used

How I made these cards
  1. I trimmed and folded the card stock to an A2 sized card base.
  2. I blended Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks to the center of the card front.
  3. Then added splatters of water and same ink and let that dry.
  4. Meanwhile, I die-cut the Origami Animals out of Sizzix Card Stock with Sidekick Machine.
  5. Lastly I added the sentiment and then popped the die-cuts over the card front.
Here are few more stills for you!

The sentiments are from Catherine Pooler's Simply the Best stamp set. Entering this bunch of cards for CASology Week 334: FUNKY.

I hope you liked the cards. Thank you so much for stopping by, take care and I'll see you next time! :)
