Happy Diwali and A Very Prosperous New Year!

Hi Crafties!

Wishing you a happy Diwali and a happy and prosperous new year!

A little gif (t) for the big occasion :

Sharing an interactive card today after ages! Feels so good to have made one.

This is a standing card and I gave it a festive feel using a diya – an eternal symbol of light!

You can see the card in action below:

Stamps are by Mudra called Diwali decor.

The foiled paper pack is Opulent by Dress my Craft. And I have used Hero arts ink cubes for inking the stamps.

I love the layered diya as it adds so much dimension and interest.

This card makes for a pretty home decor.

Work it Wednesday Simon Says Stamp August/September: Celebrate

Happy World Cardmaking Day!

Hi Crafties,

On account of World Cardmaking Day, I have a pastel colored shaker card for you today!

I have used the emboss resist technique to create the background.

I first heat embossed the Flora background stamp by Simon Says Stamp with white embossing powder.

I then ink blended various distress oxide inks to create this stunning effect.

The sentiment is from the Altenew stamp ‘Painted Greetings’.

Have you tried this technique before?

Happy Birthday Foodie!

Hello Crafties!

Happy New Year! Hope the new year brings immense happiness & peace to you and your family!❤

Today I am back with an interactive card I made for a foodie!
Well, we all love to eat (I do 😉), don’t we?
But this card also contains a surprise! Something else we also love…

Check out the video below to see the surprise!

For this card, I smooshed some Wild Honey & Squeezed lemonade distress oxide on a white card panel.

I also stamped, colored & fussy cut images from my new Breakfast puns stamp set by Sunny Studio Stamps.
Those images are so cute, aren’t they?

For the interactive mechanism I used Surf & Turf dienamics by My Favorite Things.

I also stamped, colored & fussy cut the images from Hello stamp set by Waffle Flower stamps.

For the coloring I used my Inktense pencils!

Word Art Wednesday : Weeks #368 – #369 Anything goes

Love you a Latte!

Hello Crafties!

Drinking Coffee is a lot like love. You get addicted to the mere thought of it! ❤

So I decided to combine both of them to create my card today.

I used the Donuts & Treats stamp set by Itsy bitsy for the coffee cup.

I colored them with my Inktense pencils.

For the background I sploshed Candied Apple distress oxide with the help of an acetate sheet.

The sentiment is from the stamp set. I foam mounted the coffee cups and my card was done.

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

Surprise Pop up slider card!

Hiya Crafties!
I love making interactive cards! It’s fun making them and receiving them too! 😄

So here is one which I made for the Neat and Tangled Throwdown tutorial challenge.

I have a step-by-step photo tutorial for this surprise pop up slider card using Neat and Tangled stamps!
Step 1 :

I blended 3 distress oxides Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron & Salty Ocean on white card panel measuring 5.25×4 inches with a mini blending tool.

Step 2 :
Then I diecut the panel with a rectangle-die measuring 4×3 inches.

Step 3 :
Then I cut an acetate sheet of size 4.25×3 inches ( the same size as the rectangle diecut but 1/4th inch larger on length side to stick it on the panel ).
I then scored the acetate on 1/4th inch from both sides and also in the middle.

Step 4 :
I then applied double sided tape on both the 1/4inch ends.
And stuck 1 end on the frame edge as shown by the arrow.

Step 5 :
I took black chipboard of size 4.75×3.5 inches and stuck the other end of the acetate on the black panel matching the edges as shown by the arrow in the second pic.

Step 6 :
I stamped the cute images from the ‘Wild Ones’ stamp set by ‘Neat and tangled’ on to watercolor cardstock with Versafine Onyx black ink. And colored them with my mozart Dual brush pens.
The critters are so cute, aren’t they? ❤

Step 7 :
After that, I watercolored some circles and diecut them with the Paper Smooches balloon-die.
I also stuck strips of acetate on the back of each of the balloons with double sided tape.

Step 8 :
Then I scored the acetate strip of each balloon and adhered the scored part on the underside of the frame as you can see in the pic.

The balloons stand perpendicular to the base as shown by the arrow in the pic.

I also attached the gift and bird image alongwith the balloons.
These balloons will slide back under the black panel giving an element of surprise when you slide open the card. 😉
I also stamped the frame with the little confetti stamps from the same stamp set with black ink.
Step 9 :
I mounted foam tape on the back side and adhered it to an A2 white card base ( such that it is close to but doesnt touch the black panel and keeps room for it to slide).

Step 10 :
I then arranged and adhered all the stamp images on the lower part of the acetate such that they would seem to be floating.

Step 11 :
Taking a black strip, I heat embossed the sentiment from the ‘Wild for you’ stamp set by Lawn Faw with white embossing powder. And mounted it on the end of the frame.

Step 12 :
I hand drew an arrow with black tip pen, fussy cut it and adhered it on the exposed part of the black panel.

And finally my card is complete! Phew! 😄😜
