Guest Designing for Jane’s Doodles Challenges

Hello Crafties!

I am Guest Designing for Jane’s Doodles Challenges for their Challenge #7 : Rainbow.

In times of distress, faith is what keeps us going. So I have an inspirational card for today with a rainbow theme.

I have used the ‘You got this’ stamp set by Jane’s Doodles. This stamp set has such inspiring sentiments!

For the background I used alcohol markers in Rainbow order. After creating the stripes, with white pigment ink I stamped the tiny heart image from the ‘Happy Camper’ stamp set by Jane’s Doodles.

I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock with black ink and used the Stitched borders dieset by Lawn Fawn around the panel.

Hope this bright card inspires you to keep the faith. Stay safe.

Do let know in the comments below how you liked the card.

And the Christmas trees are by Jane’s doodles.

I created the sky using the Denim background stamp by MFT using Hero Arts inks.

The star dieset and the texture paste are by Itsy Bitsy.

I loved creating this colorful scene in the inside of the card.

The Flower Challenge #36 : Anything Goes

Guest Designing for The Twisted Challenges blog!

Hi Crafties!

I am so excited to be a Guest Designer for The Twisted Challenges blog for their February Challenge : Valentines day + No Red or Pink.

I love their themes. They help in challenging our creativity.

Well, Valentine’s day without pink or red seems a bit tough! But we ain’t gonna give up, are we?

So today I have a different type of interactive card for you – a wiper card.

I am sure this card would definitely make your love happy. That’s the aim, isn’t it? 😉

I used Bananas as my theme as Yellow is a color that makes everyone happy. 😄 (See the emoticons are yellow too)

You can see my card in action below :

Enough of the banter, let’s get to the card.

I used the ‘Berry Special’ stamp by Itsy Bitsy for the bananas.

I smooshed distress inks in the background in random fashion to create the effect of greenery.

The script stencil by Little Birdie, I used for added interest.

The surprise this card gives is so much fun.

The sentiment ‘I am Bananas for you’ is so mushy, I totally love it! 💛

And isn’t the monkey so cute too?
It’s from another little birdie stamp set called ‘Jungle Birthday’.

It was so much fun creating this card.

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.
