You are awesome

Hello people,

My first creative post as a DT for Kraftzone.. :D Feels good.. I hope everyone is gearing up for the weekend.. I have the next few weekends booked for social commitments.. The dilemma of married life.. You are expected to go everywhere...

We have a very easy challenge for you to use pattern paper, image and embellishment going by 1-2-3.. You can interpret it anyway you like but the 3 elements need to be present..

I am going through a CAS phase so most of my cards are more simple yet they screw your head when you sit and make it.

I am used a simple sunburst technique on my card.. This is one of my favourite techniques to use when I have a lot of pattern paper scraps left on me and I hate wasting pattern paper..




I cut 1.5" pattern paper strips and cut it diagonally.. Placed them as I wanted to on my card and then continued to make it more balanced.. There are many ways you can do the sunburst technique on your card.. It depends on what kind of plan you have in mind for the final outcome of your card...


This is how my card looks.. I actually love the colour combination of the card.. I had started off with a different combination in mind and the end result is quite different and yet I am very happy about it..

All supplies used can be bought from Kraftzone.. If not available on the website you can always place a pre-order for the same...

Hope to have you join us for this challenge.. You can check all the details here.

Thanks so much for joining us.. I will catch up with you guys again.. Have a fantastic weekend..


Hugs,
Khushboo

Inspirational post for current challenge# 7

Hello,
Its me Ruchi here n now my turn to share my work for the current challenge #7 .
First of all I want to thank our very talented previous DT Daksha Popat and Lekha Jain for their contribution to Kraftzone blog. They made super awesome projects and gave inspirations to all of us. We Kraftzone team will miss them and their work. Love you girls and best of luck for the future. :)
   Along with I am welcoming our new super creative DT Khushboo Rathi Garg in Kraftzone family. Looking forward to see her creations too. :)

Now come to the post....I made 2 projects for this. Here are they....

First I made this Neon Easel Card with PPs, Embellishments ( Pearls, String, Button, Pollens and Glitter Diamond Dust) and stamped images- cute Spring Bringer Wee stamp and those butterflies. All images are stamped-colored with Distress inks n fussy cut. Here are pics..



 For this feather I used TCW- Mini Fancy Feathers stencil. Flower is handmade n sprinkle some Diamond dust on it. Sentiment is Hero Arts Clings- Messages stamp. That's it.

Lets move to my 2nd project which is Mixed Media Tag. Here it is...




Firstly chose the PP n paste it on a CS. Used my Kaisercraft clear stamp- Tic Toc on a blank CS n embossed it with White embossing powder. Then used 'Vintage Photo' n 'Walnut Stain' Distress inks for distressing it. Used HOTP- Pocket Watch and HOTP- Dressform stamps for this distressed pocket watch, butterflies, dress n sentiment (all are stamped-colored-fussy cut). Added pearls, silver bead string, golden string, beads and handmade bloom for embellishing. That's it!!

Hope you like my work. Thanks for stopping. :)
Keep crafting...
Ruchi..
