You Amaze Me

Hi Crafties!

Today I have a layered floral card using Altenew stamps.

I created background on blue cardstock using stripes stencil from Altenew along with dark blue ink to create a dramatic effect.

The flower is from the Painted Rose stamp set and so are the sentiments.

I love bright color combinations. What about you?

Altenew December Inspiration Challenge 2019

You are my Everything!

Hello Crafties!

Flowers are so inspiring that they make great art designs. They create that timeless feel.

Today I have a floral card using faux watercolor stamps.

Altenew makes awesome floral stamps and one of them is the Watercolor Wonders stamp set that creates faux watercolor effect.

It creates such pretty flowers that is helpful if you are new to watercoloring.

I used different distress inks and some hero arts inks for the card.

The stripes stencil is also by Altenew. I used gray to help enhance the floral colors.

The sentiment is from another Altenew stamp set called Painted Rose.

Finished it off with some splatters and clear sequins.

How do you like my faux floral card?

Doing simple is never easy, it just seems it is. I love making CAS cards as much as I love making interactive cards!

The framework background stamp is awesome for people who love to color, which includes me! 😆

Dream Girl – Mixed Media Card

Hi Crafties!
I am back with another DT inspiration project for the ongoing Itsy Bitsy Blog Challenge #21 : Anything Goes with Little Birdie Metallic Wax.

You can find the post here.

We all have dreams! Dreams of soaring high, dreams of having it all…
Today I have a card that tries to illustrates those dreams!
This is my first ever mixed media card!

Read on further to know how I made it…
Lets begin!
Step 1:
On a 5.5 x 6 inches panel of Bright White cardstock, I used the Net stencil with Hot Pink Color Splash.
Step 2:
Next I cut a doily in half & then folded it again and adhered it on the panel.
Step 3:
I then used the Script stencil with Crackle paste on the top left corner and the bottom right corner of the panel for added interest.
Step 4:
After this, I glued mixed media strips as shown.
Step 5:
On this, I dabbed Copper Blaze Metallic Wax by Little Birdie. It is so smooth to use.
Step 6:
I also dabbed the Copper Blaze Metallic Wax on some gorgeous white handmade flowers by Little Birdie.
I then glued them down on the panel as seen below :
Step 7:
In the next step, I stamped the images from the Princess and Dragon stamp set. I colored these images with Color splash and Metallic paint.
Step 8:
I pasted these images with glue and some with foam tape to give dimension.
I also stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and glued it on the panel. I distressed the sides of the panel with my scissors and also dabbed Copper Blaze Metallic Wax here and there.
I finally glued the panel to the card base. And my first ever mixed media is complete!
Hope you liked my card!

Have a great day ahead!

Timeout Challenges #132 : Home Sweet Home

Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday March 2019 : Spring Flowers

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. 😉

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.

Do let me know your thoughts in the comments.

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

Floral Easel Card and Tag

Hi Crafties!

I am back with a tutorial for the oval easel card & tag that I posted about in my earlier post.
Let’s get started :

For the card,

I used the Simon Says Stamp ‘Flower Explosion’ background stamp set. It is such a beautiful design.
I heat embossed the image with black embossing powder on watercolor cardstock and colored with Koi watercolours.

Then I used an oval die on the panel and slightly bigger oval-die on black cardstock.

After that, I used the Thanks-die by Pink & Main on the watercolored panel. I also die-cut the ‘thanks’ sentiment from black cardstock. This ‘black cardstock thanks diecut’ I stuck in the negative space made on the watercolored panel.

This is called the ‘inlaid die-cutting technique’.

Then I stuck the watercolored panel and oval black cardstock panel together to add more interest.

I also cut two more oval panels from white cardstock. On one panel I scored at around 1 cm. And applied glue at that part on the backside and adhered it to the other panel.

I also scored the same oval panel midway & applied glue on its lower half (this time on the front) and stuck my watercolored black outlined panel.

Then I stamped the sentiment on a strip of paper and adhered it with foam tape on the inside of the card at the end so that when the card opens, it acts as stopper for the front panel.
Ta da! Our card is ready!

Fr the tag:

I used a Spellbinders tag-die both on watercolour and black cardstock.
After masking, I stamped the same stamp set on the tag and colored it.
I then stamped the sentiment and punched a hole at the top and finished it off with a blue ribbon from my stash.

Do let me know your thoughts in the comments.
