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.

This was a simple card with Hero arts flower

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.

I wanted to use stamps I have not used before or ones I have not used enough. This sentiment stamp has not been used before.
img_3411I started with sun stencil using scattered straw and squeezed lemon distress inks. I stamped the sentiment with versa ink. I diecut a MFT butterfly and colored it with zig clean color pens. added a ribbon with a button. I added some shimmer with spectrum noir pen.

Here is the inside another butterfly with zig pens.


Added this to two challenges:

Come and get it– No designer paper; The ribbon girl– Anything image and

Unicorn birthday wishes


, , , , , , , , , , ,

It was my niece’s birthday, so used Kelly as my inspiration for this card.


I started with a cloud stamp, when I was removing it from the package the stamp tore- it is a very old stamp. when I saw it broke I thought it was perfect since I needed only the outline and now it was not a full cloud it worked perfectly. I started with embossing it in white. Then I stamped the unicorn from Simon Says Stamp in versafine ink. I masked the unicorn and added the stars. I dried it all. I used zig pens and carefully watercolored without coloring the stars. Once done I colored the stars, unicorn and clouds with copics. I used novo drops I had made earlier and added some shimmer with spectrum noir pen.

I am adding this in four challenges Inky Chicks– Anything goes; Try it on Tuesday– Anything but Square and Unicorn challenges– January Blues; Sparkle and Sprinkle– use embossing powder(on clouds)

Thank you for your sweet comments.


Happy Birthday to a friend


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I made this for a friend. I was inspired by MFT DT and Julia( I love the way she organizes her roses)


I started with red card stock and then used versa mark ink and ranger gold embossed powder with an MFT background stamp. Love how it came out. I added a ribbon. Three roses using the same paper and embossing as the background.The rolled roses form MFT are fabulous, Added more diecuts of leaves from the wild greenery. I diecut a label and added a simple Happy Birthday sentiment and to add balance added three gold sequins. stickles on the roses and leaves finished the panel. Popped it on the card with foam.

Thank you for your sweet comments.



Happy Birthday

My husband needed a card at work. This is a 5×7 card. 
img_3394I started with a bristol smooth panel. I diecut the MFT soda pop bottles and straw with the same paper. I started with sponging the distress ink on the panel and doing the bottle simultaneously with that color. The paper is fabulous and helps the ink sponge smoothly. I used carved pumpkin(my favorite orange now), candied apple, scattered straw and tumbled glass. I added the matching color stamps on the bottle. I sprayed it with water and used a towel to lift off some color. My daughter suggested that I stagger the straws so that is what I did. Initially I stamped the sentiment directly on paper, did not like it so I rest amped it on another piece and cut it to size and popped it on the panel. I added shine with spectrum noir pen on the bottles. I added the pearls last from my stash.This was backed on a piece of black card stock. Now I love my black card stock so from the center of the panel I removed a piece so  do not waste paper.

I enjoyed thoroughly making the inside. This is the first time I used this MFT balloon stencil and I am in love with it.


I used tons of distress inks. I started with candied apple, then scattered straw, tumbled glass. The next row with carved pumpkin, shaded lilac, twisted citron. the next rho was the big spun sugared on the sides is squeezed lemonade, green(can’t recall the name) and ripe persimmon. I stamped Happy Birthday. While ding this I used lots of masking.

I am adding it to three challenges

Craftygirlscreations– Anything goes; seize the birthday– Anything goes and Aud sentiments challenge– anything goes.

Thank you for your sweet comments.



Happy birthday Shaker and slider card

I enjoyed making this card. It has both Shaker and slider element. I was inspired by Emily Cupeley. I tried following her instructions, her card is way better.
img_3307I used Lawn Fawn mermaid set. The sentiments are from Simon says stamp. I used distress inks and sequins. the mermaid was also colored with distress inks.

Here is another New Year card.

img_3303I liked Gina K cards with sunshine in the background so made this inspired by her. I used MFT sun rays stencil with distress inks. First I had stamped the tulips but while coloring with copics they got messed up i decided to make the background panel again and use those same tulips, so i cut them and added to this card. Dry embossed the background. Added layers and ribbon.
