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 :

Interactive Adorable Elephants

Hiya Crafties!

Making interactive cards is so much fun. It’s true that the efforts that we put are ten times more than making a simple card. But the satisfaction that you get when your card actually moves and surprises you is ten fold! That is totally worth the efforts, isn’t it? 😄

I made this card for MFT 2018 Card Design Superstar – Innovation Master.

Below is a video of my card in action –

There are so many wonderful entries!

I hope you like my card too ☺.

I spent a lot of time designing this card. A. Lot.

I literally went over it again & again in my mind, till I was satisfied with the idea!

I actually had made another card with another stamp set by MFT but then this one caught my heart ❤

After designing, executing the idea perfectly was the next task.

This required the next Lot of time! [Obviously 😋 ]

I decided to go for a quadruple slider card. My card is 5.5 × 5.5 inch square card.

The front panel has a hidden double slider.

The right hand panel has the spinning wheel mechanism.

And the left hand panel is a pop up slider card.

I made all the mechanisms by hand. As I did not have the corresponding MFT diesets.

I used the ‘Adorable Elephants stamp set’ for the main images. The other images come from the ‘Happy Hippos stamp set’, the clouds from ‘Magical Dragons stamp set’ & the hearts from the ‘Once upon a time stamp set’.

For the little gift in the spinning wheel, I partially stamped the hippo image holding a gift and then drew the remaining outline with a fine tip black pen. Phew! 😅

I also used the instagram camera-die from the ‘Cute Cameras die-namics’ for the spinning wheel panel and ‘Surf & Turf dieset’ for the green hills.

Where I didn’t have the required MFT diesets, I fussy cut everything! The circles, the slits etc.

The front panel is watercolored. And the other panels are blended with Distress oxides Wild Honey & Squeezed Lemonade.

This is my card in its full glory 😉.

If we are counting all kinds of ‘Lots’ then let me say –

I had a Lot of fun too.

Learnt so many new things while making this card.

If it were not for MFT, I wouldn’t have learned so many new techniques on my own.

I hope you enjoy watching my card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Stamped Accessories

Hi Crafties! Today I am back with a post which involves stamping but not on cards! Curious? Read ahead to know more.

I used stamps by Mudra. And hero arts dye inks. You can use any brand.

First, I stamped the cute elephant image from Critter Party (one of my favorite stamp sets) twice on watercolor cardstock with black versafine ink.

I then watercolored with Koi watercolors. You can use whichever coloring medium you are comfortable with.

For the other pieces, I stamped the moustache and the hat from ‘The Man’ stamp set, the school bag from the ‘Beach fun’ stamp set & the flower bunch from the ‘Mogra layers’ stamp set.

After fussy cutting [fancy term for cutting with scissors 😉 ] all the images, I then brushed Sparkle Mod Podge over them. After they thoroughly dried, I generously applied Mod Podge Dimensional Magic over each of them and left them to dry overnight.

Using hot glue I then attached brooch pins to the pink elephant & Brown school bag, big paper clips to the hat & flower bunch and the ring base to the moustache. To the blue elephant & pink school bag, I stuck pieces of magnetic tape.

I made 2 brooches, 2 magnets , 2 paper clips & 1 ring in total.

I had also made a multicolored elephant magnet, but I wasn’t able to find it when I took the pics.

Being able to combine my love for stamping with making ready to use accessories makes me very happy.
