Friends are flowers in the Garden of life | Ink blending technique|I love Math Challenge 14

Hello Crafties,

There are different techniques using inks and one of them is ink blending. One of my favorites! ❀

I have a VIDEO TUTORIAL for this card below :

I have used distress inks for the ink blending.

The flower stamp set is by Gina K designs.

Did a bit of masking for this one.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

The grid stamp is by Craftyscrappers.

I finished off the card with ebony black Nuvo drops.

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?

Do let me know in the comments below.

Flower Bouquet Card!

Hello Crafties!
Hope you all are doing absolutely fantastic!

This month’s challenge by Itsy Bitsy is Anything Goes with Little Birdie Watercolour Embellishments

I have a tutorial for you for a Flower Bouquet Card!
What’s better than flowers
Flowers that don’t wilt !!! πŸ˜‰
Read on further, how to make the Flower Bouquet card…..

You can see the card in action below :

Let’s make the base first :

Step 1:
I first took a light brown handmade paper by Little Birdie measuring 8.5″ Γ— 12″. Scored this piece on the long side at 2.75″, 5.5″, 8.25″ and 11″.
Step 2:
Then I cut off 2″Γ—12″ from the above panel. Kept this strip aside as we would require it later.
Step 3:
I then scored the 6.5″ Γ— 12″ panel at 2.75″ on the shorter side and cut along the red lines as shown in the pic.
It will look like this :
Step 4:
The strip (from step 2), I cut at 4.75″ from the end with the 1″ score line.
Then trimmed it in half the long way to get 2 strips of 1″ x 4.75″ each as shown in the pic. Scored them and added double sided tape to the scored ends.
See how I attached them to the box:
Step 5:
For the matting I cut the following :
6 panels of 2.5″ square
3 panels of 2.5″ Γ— 3.5″
2 panels of 2.5″ Γ— 6.5″
See how I adhered them below :
I adhered a white piece of cardstock on the back to write a message for the recipient.

For the flowers :

Step 1:
I used the Watercolour Paper Blooms pack by Little Birdie. Leaving the largest size, I used the other 3 sizes of flowers.
Step 2:
You can watercolor them as per your choice. I used watercolor pencils to color them. Then I embossed the petals a little bit and decorated the center with Little Birdie Pearl drops. I let the drops dry overnight.
* You can make smaller or larger dots based on your choice. They dry hard. *
Step 3:
I also diecut leaves from the Ornate frame dieset with green cardstock.
Step 4:
The next step is to add thin strips of green cardstock (of different lengths) to each of the flowers and some of the leaves.
Step 5:
I also diecut 3 panels of cream color handmade paper using appropriate Square cross-stitch thin cut die by Little Birdie.
I stamped a sentiment onto this from my stash.
The last step is to attach the flowers & leaves with glue onto the box as per your choice.
Hope you liked my flower bouquet card. If you do make this card, I would love to see your creations.
Do let me know your thoughts in the comments.
Have a great day ahead!
