MFT Camp Create Day 1 – Wonderful Watercolor

Hey Crafties!

Today I am sharing a card made with ‘My Favorite Things’ products for their Camp Create Day 1 – Wonderful Watercolor.

Watercolor is such a fun medium. You never know what the end result will be like. It really teaches us to go with the flow.

For this card today, I took a white cardstock panel and gave it a wash of water on the lower right in a scalloped circle kind of motion.

Then I came back with a wash of different shades of green, one after the other. And then let the color flow on its own.

I also added some splatters.

And then foam mounted my cute giraffe from the ‘Safari Friend’ stamp set by MFT, which I had colored and fussy cut during the ‘Daily Marker 30 day Coloring Challenge’ held by Kathy.

You can check out all my colorings of different images on my insta here.

In addition, I adhered few leaf images from the set.

I also stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with black ink on the bottom.

I simply love this color combination. Do you?

Hap-pea Birthday!

Hello Crafties!

Today I have an interactive card featuring Lawn Fawn stamp set Be Hap-pea.

I created this card for LawnFawnatics Challenge #50 : Fun with food

You can see the video of the card below :

I have used the Magic Picture changer dieset from Lawn Fawn to create this interactive card!

On the front are some leaves from the same stamp set. I have used distress inks for the background.

The picture changes to cute little peas wishing a hap-pea birthday. So much fun, right?

The dieset is easy to assemble. The possibilities are endless when using this dieset.

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.

Have a great day ahead!

A Garden of Flowers!

Hi Crafties!

Flowers are so beautiful that just looking at them makes our day, doesn’t it? What if we could keep looking at them forever when we feel like?

A garden of flowers is exactly that kind of a card! ❀

Let’s see how to make it…

I first created a basic box card with Grey cardstock.

I then stamped different flowers from the Hearts & Flowers stamp set by Altenew with Hero Arts dye ink cubes.

I fussy cut these and glued acetate strips on their back.

I also diecut a grass border by Lawn Fawn from green cardstock and adhered on the front.

I arranged the flowers on the box card so as to create the effect of a garden.

The happy word die is by Lawn Fawn.

Magnet in an Easel card!

Hello Crafties!
Today I am on the Itsy Bitsy blog with my very first blog post as a design team member.
This month’s Challenge theme is Anything goes with Little Birdie Instant Image Transfer Gel.
For this, I have a step by step photo tutorial for making a magnet easel card for you today.

I am obsessed about making cards and incorporating new products into my cardmaking!

So if you love cardmaking like me [ high – five πŸ˜€ ] or you are into other crafts [ high – five to you too πŸ˜€ ], I am sure either way, you would have fun making this card!

Enough of my banter, lets begin:
Step 1:

I took a wooden slice by Little Birdie measuring around 2 inches. These come in a pack of six. So you can make plenty of magnets this way.

I reversed the image of the laser printout before printing. As I wanted my peacock to face in a particular direction.
Step 2 :
Then with a wide brush, I spread Little Birdie Instant Image Transfer Gel over my wooden slice.
* Be generous while applying the gel. The first time I tried, I used very little and ended up ruining my project. So please keep that in mind *

I then placed the gel side of the slice on top of my image. I did this so that I could see how the image was being placed.
Step 3 :
After letting it dry for around 15 min I took some water and began dabbing the paper with my finger, slowly, all over.
* Do not rush this step *
Taking out the first white layer of the paper & then little by little the image starts to peek out. It is so much fun when you see the image transferred completely onto the slice.
Step 4 :
The image might appear a bit hazy but fret not. Just apply a layer of Little Birdie Decor Varnish and voila- the image is immediately crisp! You could use Little Birdie Deco Magic too.

Step 5 :
I then applied a small strip of magnet on the back side of the slice and my magnet is complete.

Inspirational Magnet

Hello Crafties!
Today I have something other than a card for you. A magnet!

I love making them. Specially the ones with inspirational quotes on them.

For today’s project, I diecut a hexagon out of black chipboard.Loving the hexagon die by Gina Marie.
I then, heat embossed the sentiment stamp with WOW Metallic gold rich embossing powder.
The stamp is by Jane’s doodles.
The cactus stamps are by Itsy bitsy’s – Little birdie.

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?

A Glowing 2019!

Hey Crafties!

Glow-in-the-dark is such an awesome invention right after the light bulb. Don’t both light up the dark! πŸ˜‰

I have an hexagon easel card for today which, yes, you guessed it right- glows in the dark! Yay!

All the images were heat embossed with Wow Glow in the dark embossing powder.

It gives such a pretty no-line coloring effect!

The stamp set I used is Happy Village by Lawn Fawn.

I added an extra element (the house) inside the card to add dimension.

This is how it looks opened up :

Even the sentiment is heat embossed with Wow Glow in the dark embossing powder.

Just love how it glows at night!

The background is done using distress oxides and the hexagon cuttingdie is by Gina Marie Designs. The number stamp is by Itsy Bitsy.

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’.

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!!!
