Hi Crafties!

Today I have an Anniversary Reveal Wheel card you! It is so much fun to turn on the wheel to reveal the hidden sentiments.

You can see the card in action below:

I used a lot of different brands to make this card.

The main frame I made using the square reveal wheel dieset by Lawn Fawn.

I used the Love and Hugs stamp set by Your Next Stamp and diecut the heart from the image to reveal the hidden sentiments.

I made the background using a stencil by Craftangles with distress oxides.

The sentiments are from the Reveal Wheel sentiment stamp set again by Lawn Fawn.

It is always fun to make these type of cards.

Bloom Where You Are Planted!

Hey Crafties!

I am back with another floral card!

I did a lot of masking for this one. But it was worth the effort.

I used the Flower Bloom stamp & die set by Jillibean Soup for this card.

It has these tiny leaves & flowers stamps which helped me in making this bloom.

The sentiments are pretty nice too.

I first diecut the pointed banner die with masking paper and then stamped the images around it.

The inks used were by Hero Arts.

I am loving this color combo lately.

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 ombrΓ© 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?

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!!!

Tunnel Inside!

Hi Crafties!

Layers in cards are so much fun to make and also create so much interest.

Today I have a inside tunnel card where I have created a jungle inside.

For the front , I kept it monochrome with the color green.

I used the ‘Happy’ sentiment stamp by ‘Craftyscrappers’ and applied Twisted citron & Lucky Clover distress oxides to create shaded effect.

I also added stripes using the ‘Fun with stripes’ stamp set by Mudra and finished it off with green sparkling dotties.

Here’s the inside :

I used the ‘Critter Party’ stamp set by Mudra stamps.

The amazing Jennifer Mcguire has step by step instructions on youtube. You can check out her blog post here.

For the ink blended background, I used Twisted Citron & Lucky Clover distress oxides.

I stamped, watercolored & fussy cut the images and adhered them accordingly.

I also used a cloud stencil with Salty ocean distress oxide.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Here is the video of my card in action :

A Bunch of Flowers

Hiya Crafties!

Coloring is a stress release therapy that not only kids but grown-ups too must partake.

It is especially useful when we have long travelling to do or are just plain bored. πŸ˜‰

There are different coloring mediums we can use like color pencils, watercolors, copic markers, brush pens, etc. The list is endless.

For my one layer card today, I have used color pencils.

The beautiful stamp is by ‘Craftyscrappers’ called ‘Be kind – be you’.

I have done a bit of shading for the leaves and also the flowers.

First I stamped the image on watercolor cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx ink.

Then I colored in the image and fussy cut it.

I restamped the image after coloring to get crisper outlines. I used my Misti for this.

For the background, I used the ‘Distress Circles’ stencil again by ‘Craftyscrappers’ along with ‘Whipped Cream’ sparkling paste by ‘Little Birdie’ here & there.

I also sprinkled frosted sugar powder by ‘Dress my Craft’ over paste while it was wet.

The sentiment is from the same set.

Finished it off with white 3D outliner drops & Vanilla sparkling dotties.

Thank you Cards

Hey Crafties!

We celebrated Teacher’s day in India on 5th September.
5th September is the birth anniversary of a great teacher Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who was a staunch believer of education, and was a well-known diplomat, scholar, the President of India and above all, a teacher.

To celebrate this occasion I made 2 cards for my niece’s teachers!

I used the radiating rays stencil by Craftyscrappers.

For the green rays card, I used Twisted Citron distress oxide and Mowed Lawn distress ink through the stencil.

I diecut an oval piece of cardstock and blended Wild Honey distress oxide on it.

I then stamped, colored and fussy cut the cute girl image from Waffle Flower’s ‘Hello’ stamp set.

The sentiment I stamped from itsy bitsy’s ‘Happy Bird-Day’ stamp set.

For the Yellow rays card, I used Wild Honey distress oxide through that same stencil.

For this card, I stamped, colored and fussy cut the same girl image.

The sentiment is stamped in a contrasting color.

Made both these cards in less than an hour which was quite a feat for me πŸ˜€

A Simple Birthday Card

Hi everyone! Today is my very first post on cardmaking. I am so excited to start this journey of chronicling my cards. I have a simple card for today.

I used the Craftreat Mandala stencil.

First I took some white cardstock and diecut it with a rectangle-die.

Then placing the stencil in the left hand corner of the cardstock, I secured it with masking tape.

After that I took Faded jeans & Wild honey distress oxide and blended them with finger daubers.

I stamped the sentiment with same inks using stamps from Craftyscrappers and Little birdie stamp sets.

Then I adhered the panel on a slightly bigger pattern paper and mounted the whole panel on an A2 card base.

Hope you liked it. Do let me know in the comments!
