MFT Camp Create Day 1 – Wonderful Watercolor

Hey Crafties!

Today I am sharing a card made with ‘My Favorite Things’ products for their Camp Create Day 1 – Wonderful Watercolor.

Watercolor is such a fun medium. You never know what the end result will be like. It really teaches us to go with the flow.

For this card today, I took a white cardstock panel and gave it a wash of water on the lower right in a scalloped circle kind of motion.

Then I came back with a wash of different shades of green, one after the other. And then let the color flow on its own.

I also added some splatters.

And then foam mounted my cute giraffe from the ‘Safari Friend’ stamp set by MFT, which I had colored and fussy cut during the ‘Daily Marker 30 day Coloring Challenge’ held by Kathy.

You can check out all my colorings of different images on my insta here.

In addition, I adhered few leaf images from the set.

I also stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with black ink on the bottom.

I simply love this color combination. Do you?

Chalk Paint Cards

Hi Crafties!
This is my last project as a DT member for Itsy Bitsy 2019.
Let’s move on to today’s project…
I have several CAS cards for you today featuring Chalk Paints!
CAS stands for Clean and Simple cards. You can make all of these cards in a short time!
For the 1st card :
Step 1:
I used several colors of Chalk Paints. Do let me know in the comments below if you would like to know the names of each!
I used the paints with a flat brush in a swiping motion and then let them dry.
Step 2:
On this panel, I stamped the ‘Flowerful Gratitude’ stamp set with black ink.
Step 3:
Then I foam mounted the panel on a white card base and stamped a sentiment. I also rounded the corners for added interest. And my card is complete!
Now lets move to the next cards –
Both the cards are created from a single panel.
Step 1:
I did the wet on wet watercolor technique. It entails first giving a wash of water on the card panel and then coming in with the colour of your choice. I used Deep Sea Blue and Marsh Green chalk paints.
I let the colour flow on its own.
Step 2:
After drying the panel completely, I die cut the leaf from Fern forest dieset by Little Birdie.
Step 3:
You get two cards out of this. I adhered the negative panel on an A2 card base and stamped the sentiment.
I also created some splatters and added Little Birdie pearl drops.
Step 4:
I then swiped three stripes of chalk paint Marsh Green on a white card panel. And then glued the positive leaf diecut on it and stamped the sentiment.
*To match the colour of the diecut, I painted the borders of the card base with same Deep Sea Blue chalk paint*
Moving on to the last 2 cards.
Step 1:
I used the net stencil with Sailing Sky chalk paint on a white card base.
After I lifted the stencil, I immediately pressed the other side of it on another white card panel.
So you get 2 cards out of this one too!
Step 2:
I stamped the ‘Flowery wishes’ stamp on the stenciled image.
Step 3 :
After repeatedly stamping the sentiment, I glued the panel on a black A2 card base.
Step 4 :
I colored another white card panel with Charcoal chalk paint. And then diecut that panel twice with the same leaf die.
Step 5:
I adhered these 2 diecuts on the faded stenciled image panel. After stamping the sentiment and adding the pearl drops, both cards are complete.
I hope you liked my projects.

A Shiny Congratulations!

Hey Crafties!

I love shine and sparkle, especially in my cards. So wherever I can, I try to use products that do so.

For my card today, I have again used WOW Gold Metal Rich Superfine embossing powder. I just love this powder.

The Mandala stamp by Studio Katia is so pretty. I had been wanting this stamp ever since I saw it.

I first watercolored the background in an ombré effect using Koi watercolors with different colors of green.
I then heat embossed the stamp with the above powder.

I also heat embossed the sentiment which is from the Altenew set- Celebrations. That is aother set which I had been drooling over since a long time.

The stripes stamp is by Craftyscrappers.

I finished off the card with green jewels, again from Studio Katia. Aren’t they so pretty?

Thank you for stopping by… Have a great day ahead!
