Merry Christmas from All of Us!

Hey Crafties!

Today I am back with a double slider card using Mama Elephant stamps!

I used the ‘Girlfriends’ stamp set by ‘Mama Elephant’.

You can see my card in action below :

Interactive cards are so much fun and bring out the child in you.

The surprise element is what makes them so special!

For the sentiment, I used the same stamp set and also one by Itsy Bitsy.

The background is done using distress oxides.

Flowery Wishes

Hiya Crafties!

Heat embossing is such an integral part of card making. Be it heat embossing a sentiment, or a small image or a whole background! And it gives such beautiful effects!

For my card today, I heat embossed the entire background with Little birdie Gold embossing powder from Itsy bitsy.

The background stamp is by Simon Says Stamp named Flower Explosion. I love this stamp. It’s so pretty. And a must have for a coloring enthusiast.

Before embossing, I adhered a diecut circle of masking paper in the centre. This was so that I could add the sentiment in there.

The sentiment is by Craftyscrappers. I heat embossed it on black cardstock with white embossing powder.

I also added some green & gold paint splatters to bring everything together.

Lastly, I matted my panel with gold cardstock on an A2 card base.

And my card is done!!!

Let it Snow

Hello Crafties!

Stencils are so versatile and easy to use. You can use inks, coloring mediums, glitter pastes, embossing pastes, embossing powders etc. with them. And the list is endless!

For my card, I used the snowflakes stencil by Craftangles.

I spread Sparkle paste by Little Birdie from Itsy Bitsy in the shade – Arctic Shimmer & Mulberry Glaze over the stencil.

I then used the Oval-die by Dcam and foam mounted the panel on A2 card base.

I also dotted the outline of the oval panel with a fine-liner blue pen to add more interest.

The sentiment is also from Itsy bitsy.

Beary Wishes

Hey Crafties!

In my earlier post, I used watercolors to create a background.

This card uses watercolors too though the finished card looks entirely different.

I used shades of blue for my background.

I then took MFT dienamics Snow drifts Coverup and didn’t use the frame just the positives. Mounted the pieces on foam tape.

The cute bear is from Janes Doodles stamp set. I watercolored it with brush markers.

The sentiment is from Itsy bitsy.

The Pink Leaf

Hello Crafties!

Watercoloring is such a stress buster. And the awesome thing about watercoloring is that there is no right or wrong.

Everything is art!

For this card, I watercolored with my Koi watercolors in shades of pink using lots of water on watercolor cardstock.

I then used the Paper smooches leaf-die for the focal point.

The sentiment is by Honey bee stamps.

Added sequins to complete the card!

Hi Crafties!

I love Kraft cardstock. But I don’t use it as much as I want to.

But today I have a kraft card for you.

I used the Honey bee stamps ‘Sending sentiment’ stamp set for this card.

The shadow effect is achieved using white pigment ink & distress oxide. Isn’t it awesome?

The snowflakes are from Jane’s doodles.

I also used the border-dies by Lawn Fawn.

See through Shaker card!

Hey Crafties!

Today I have for you a shaker card with a twist!

I cut both the layers of the card so that you can view the inside sentiment.

I also didn’t have any Christmas Tree cutting-dies. I used the MFT dienamics Stitched valley to make my Christmas tree.

Also I used the sentiment to make the base for the tree.

The inside sentiment is by itsy bitsy

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: All that glitters is gold

Happy Diwali!

Hiya Crafties!

Diwali is just around the corner!

It is a hindu festival of lights. We celebrate it by eating a variety of sweets and lighting diyas and fire-crackers.

I made this card for my niece’s teacher.

I first stamped the Diya (lamp) from the Diwali Decors stamp by Mudra using various Hero arts dye inks.

After that I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set.

The hexagon diecut is from an earlier card I made. I like to save negatives of diecuts and use them as & when I need in a card.

I also distressed the edges of the panel with dye ink to bring everything together.

Adhered the panel onto a readymade yellow colored card base by Itsy bitsy.

I also cut the card in a house shape to add interest. Also, with a fine tip red pen, I added details on the card base. Finished it off with Sparkling dotties by Itsy Bitsy.
