Stencilled Hibiscus!

Hello Crafties,

Stencils are so easy to use and pretty cost effective too! Today I have a card made entirely using stencils! Howzzat! πŸ˜†

I have a video tutorial in 2 parts on how I made this card below on my instagram:

Part 1:

Part 2:

I used layered hibiscus stencil by Craftreat and the plaid background stencil by Craftangles.

Inks used were distress inks amd distress oxides by Ranger. My favorites! ❀

For layered stencils, the trick is to use light colors on the base image and darker colors for the shaded parts.

By using the plaid background stencil, the hibiscus image stands out nicely against the dark blue color. Doesn’t it?

The sentiment is from a Pretty Pink Posh stamp set.

I made this card pretty quickly! That’s the fun part with stencils….

Hope you like my video tutorials and the card too!

The Flower Challenge #36 : Anything Goes

Window Flower Pop-Up Card

Hello Crafties!

Today I have a card that I made using stencils.

You can see the card in action below :

I have used stencils by CraftTreat.

The shaded flower stencil is pretty easy and fun to use. Lining up the layers is pretty simple too. I used distress oxides for the layering. I love using distress oxides for most of my inking. They are totally worth the investment in my opinion!

This is a window pop-up card. I have a tutorial for a similar card here.

So when you open the card, the inside image pops up. So fun!

The inside sentiment is by Gina K designs. And the outer one is my Mudra stamps.

For the outer panel, I used the Polka dot stencil again by CrafTreat.

I loved making this quick and easy card! Would you make one too?

A Little Surprise!

Hello Crafties!

I love creating surprises inside my cards! Interactivity is so much fun!

For my card today, I have a surprise element hidden inside the card!

On first glance, it looks like a normal Christmas card.

But when you pull the cherry up, there is the surprise hidden! πŸ˜‰

Isn’t it fun?

I tried the Pull tab technique shown by my crafting idol Jennifer Mcguire. 😍

You can check it here.

I used the cupcake topping from ‘Carnival Cupcakes’ stamp set by ‘Mama Elephant’. As I didn’t have any Christmas tree stamp!

The little girl is from ‘Girlfriends’ stamp set by ‘Mama Elephant’ again.

The sentiment & snowflakes are from ‘Janes Doodles’.

I used the ‘Whipped cream’ Sparkle paste by ‘Little Birdie’ from Itsy bitsy mixing it with Fired brick distress oxide!

The stripes stencil is by ‘Craftreat’.

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.

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

You Are My Happy Card

Hi Crafties!

Today I am back with a simple card made using cutting-dies!

For this card, I used a green colored cardstock panel cut using a rectangle-die.

I had first dry embossed the panel using Craftreat ‘Stripes’ stencil and a Spellbinders embossing mat.

Then I ran this panel under the ‘You are my Happy’ cuttingdie by ‘Concord & 9th’.

I also separately used the same cutting die on a white cardstock.

And adhered the white diecut on the green panel using inlaid diecutting technique.

I watercolored another panel of watercolor cardstock with blue and offset it behind the main green panel.

I diecut the tree & cloud from the ‘In the city’ thin cuttingdie by ‘little birdie’.

The raindrops are the negative pieces from the white cardstock sentiment.

Finished it off with blue nuvo drops!
