Hello everyone here is part 4 of 5 posts to show all that was done in 2017.

My instagram handle is Zehrarosebest.

Here are some cards I made, they are all mini cards.

These sets all use mft bitty bears, love the die and stamp. I colored ten of them and added them to different cards. The first one is colored with copies, in the background I added raindrops and clouds and added stickles, once dry I popped the bears. The second one I popped the bear, hand drew some water and added stickles on the fish.

The tea tree and eucalyptus help you feel so calm and centered.

In this set the first card the bears were colored with colored pencils. The background was created with a post it mask for the sun and then masked on both sides straight and added some distress oxide inks. I popped the bears and had one of them hold a heart with glossy accents on the top. I messed up the sentiment so i took a black strip, heat embossed the sentiment in white and popped it on the top. The second card i just added painted globs from mft stamp and then added the bears. they also are colored with prism colored pencils. added some gems and little stickles on the cupcake.

These are orange lip balms.

Now this set was bears colored in comics. The one on the right was real quick. I popped the bear, added a sentiment and then added gems all around it. The one on the left i stamped from an old mft stamps the paint swipe in different rainbow colors and curved the sentiment on the top. Added the bear at the bottom

The lip balms are honey.

Here is the last card i made with mft bitty bears

I added some balloons from an old stamp set. I colored it with comics and popped the bear with a ballon that was glittered. The other card was just balloons stamped all around and i added buttons and novo drops. A small sentiment in between.

These are my favorite soaps in 1 oz size. They are grain filled honeysuckle. The are great to combat dryness.

Here is a sympathy card set. I love how it came out.

The first card is done in booked background. The background was colored with different distress oxide inks, the white was stamped on the top. After that dried i took sweet n sassy stamps and stamped the lavender buds and the grass. I added matching color butterflies. I added a sentiment on the top. I had to stamp the lavender buds three times to get it to be visible and the MISTI was awesome for that.

The second card uses flower dies from heart felt creations that were colored with distress inks. I added a  sentiment and some stickles. I love stickles.

The lavender soap is in 1 oz. Great for guests and for travel.

This set is my new favorite hero arts layering fish die.

I used all kinds of gina K inks. This stamp has four layers and each builds on the other.  The die cut makes it help be focused. I heat embossed the sentiment on black strip of paper and then popped it up.

The next card was stamped by stamping on a rough piece of color and then stamping on the card to make it blurry. I used mft ink on it and these are mft stamps.

The lip balm is chocolate.

See You in the next post. All products on my website.

Hello everyone 

Here is the third part of 2017 cards.

I do keep my instagram account active, the handle is zehrarosebest.

The first set of cards:

I love the rose from mft stamps. it is a good layering rose and a beauty by itself, I used mft inks and added rajnichawla crystals to make it shine. This is an mft sentiment. I have added glossy accents all over. The next card i used an acrylic block and added different distress oxide inks over it, sprayed water and stamped that. Once it was dry I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment as it took at least three attempts to make it dark and crisp.                                                                                                 The rose soap has rose clay and is so soothing. It is made with olive, palm and coconut oil. It has shea butter, castor oil and sweet almond oil to fatten them.

This card was so much fun to do. The card was stamped with an mft background stamp with versa mark ink and then embossed it with ranger gold embossing powder. I love the shirt die as it is a perfect focal point. I stamped an old mft flourish and added a birthday stamp, all using mft electric red ink. and the inside has the flourish

This set is colorful and I love this stamps. The roses are from mft, the lily is from Altenew. I used both mft and altenew inks here. On the roses I embossed the sentiment and on the lily I just stamped over the lily. I also added stickles and sequins for the final touch. The lavender soap has lavender buds and smells heavenly. The essential oils and the ingredients helps soothe the skin.

The set above was cool to do. The first was stenciled with tim holtz stencil with distress oxide inks and then the sentiment was stamped. The butterflies are from mft and then stickles were spread on it. For the second card i stamped the hero arts flower, masked it and added leaves. After i colored it with zig clean color pens I added a sentiment. I added glossy accents on the center of the flower and popped a ladybug on it with glossy accents on the top. I added a simple sentiment to it.

The lip balms are awesome. They have cocoa butter, castor oil, sweet almond oil and beeswax. The bubblegum flavor is loved by many.

The set below was quick cards to do. The first one was all mft dies layered over one another and then the sentiment stamped just before i adhered the leaves. I added a few gems. for the second card it was all embossed snowflakes from mft. And then embossed with versa mark ink and different embossing powders. i added a four layer sentiment. I cute it from three white card stock pieces and one on the top in pink.

The lip balms are Pina colada.

The above cards were from mft stamps. The first one is just layering of stamps and mixed leaves from another stamp. I added a ribbon and the sentiment at the bottom. I added some rajnichawla crystals. For the second card i masked the center and then stamped the flowers on both sides. I colored them with gel pens. I added glossy accents and a twine for the final touch.

The soaps are 1 oz. They come in 1oz, 4oz and 1 pound size.

The last card for this post was for a birthday.

This was just stenciling with distress inks. I added a sentiment and some small stars and confetti in black ink. I added some novo drops since this was for a male.

Have you seen my soaps or lip balms, the body butters are awesome.

Hello everyone here is part 2 of 4 posts to show all that was done in 2017. My instagram handle is Zehrarosebest.

Here are some cards I made, they are all mini cards.

They use products from mftstamps, stencils, inks. The rose is from Fredshesaid and colored with copics. The golden sentiment is gold heat embossed. The wake me up soap is filled with peppermint leaves, peppermint and spearmint essential oil. It helps you be rejuvenated. I love the scent in my room after a bath with it. Made with pure oils it is a luxury.

the next set of cards has more coloring and uses lots of diecuts. The lemon, sage and ginger soap is one of my best sellers.

Here are close ups.

Here is one more set of two cards. The lavender soap is great for skin that erupts a lot.

Hello everyone

Here are five more cards- all were made for various reasons.

If you have not been to fredshesaid designs- do visit them, Tracie has some beautiful images- both colored and black and white, she also has cut files.

I prefer using black and white and coloring on my own so that is what I did with this card.

I watercolored the flowers and butterfly. i handcuff all the images. The background paper is also from Fredshesaid.

This next image was bought from a fair. love the artist work.

It was one I could not resist buying.

Here is a card using lots of medium.
This was done with a new die from whimsy stamps- it was with Bev Rochester– her blog is worth watching and she has tons of inspiration with this die.

This card was also inspired by the gift that went with the card


Here is another birthday card

I used fredshesaid images on this one too.

Here are two cards my daughter made with mini lawn fawn images.

I love her style, these were end of the year teacher cards that she added to their gifts.

My daughter, niece and me went to a rock design class, this is the same person I bought the tile from. loved the class and the results.

Here is the last cards I made using Tim Holtz mini flowers and distress oxide inks.

Hope you enjoyed seeing the cards.

I loved adding the white highlights.

This was a card made with no supplies and one I needed on the spot.

I handwrote the sentiment and added things that were around.

I enjoyed making this card for backdropinabox-she was celebrating 100 K followers, and she is inspiring to follow.

I had these backgrounds made and used it to cut the flowers, love the vibrancy and dylusion sentiment.

This card was made with honeybee stamps- this country bloom stamp is lovely and I was inspired by Jennifer mcguire shaker card using tulle.

Hello everyone

It has been a long time since I posted here. You can always see my cards on my Instagram handle zehra/rosebest

I got some new distress oxides and i thought i would play with them for a card  I made.

It was lot of fun. I started with distress oxides – candied apple and then picked raspberry, seedless preserves and broken china. I sprayed a little water and blotted it with a towel. I will say that is a look I love on others cards but find it hard to continue with mine, so I went back and added more color on the top. Added a bow. Colored the MFT die flowers with he same colors and added to the card with a sentiment on the rectangle. Added a few dew drops and spectrum noir pen for shimmer.

Please watch my next post it will have lots of cards that i have made but not posted.

I am adding this to Brown sugar, Crafting with Friends, Creative fingers and Polka doodles crafting challenge, theme for all is anything goes.

Thank you for visiting and for your sweet comments.

By the way we have a new lip balm- grape.



Faith and love
