MFT Camp Create Day 2: Remarkable Resist

Hello Crafties!

Today I have a card featuring the Emboss Resist technique. It entails heat embossing your stamp using a sticky ink and then spreading embossing powder on the inked image. After that you heat the image with a heat gun.

I will be linking this card to MFT Camp Create : Remarkable Resist

I used white embossing powder and the Framework background stamp by MFT for this card.

To create the resist, I used Mustard Seed and Salty Ocean distress oxides. The overlapping of the two created the green color. Isn’t that fantastic?

The 2 cute bears are from the Bitty Bears stamp set by MFT. I had them already colored and fussy cut during the Daily Marker 30 day Challenge.

You can check my other colored images on my instagram feed here.

Hope you like my card.

A Cute Birthday card

Hello Crafties!

I love cute critter images. Coloring them is also so much fun. They are the reason cute interactive cards can be made.

The cute kitty image is from the the Love and Hugs stamp set by Your Next Stamp.

I used distress oxides for the background.

The grass dieset is by Little Birdie from itsy bitsy.

The images are colored with inktense pencils.

The sentiment is by Concord & 9th.

Always Flowers!

Hello Crafties!

Flowers are always a good idea. That’s why I made a pop up box card full of flowers.

I used Pinkfresh Studio stamp set ‘Always Flowers’ for the same.

Below is the video of the card :

The base of the box card is created using the Scalloped Box Card dieset by Lawn Fawn.

I colored the images with my Koi watercolor set in warm hues. I then fussy cut the flowers and adhered them on the box card.

I watercolored the panels too!

The sentiment is by Your Next Stamp.

The individual flowers were adhered on strips of acetate. I also added 2 honey bees from the same set to resemble a garden.

I made this card for a friend.

Hope this card full of flowers made you happy.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : No Designer Paper

Window Pop-up Birthday Card!

Hello Crafties!

I am back with a new DT post for Itsy Bitsy.

Birthdays are special and giving a handmade card for a birthday expresses our feelings towards that person.
Also we love surprises on our birthdays, don’t we? 😍
So today, I have a different type of birthday card for you – a surprise window pop up card!

You can see the card in action below :

Read on to find out how to make one….
Step 1 :
I first used the Victorian Window thin cut die by Little Birdie on a blue paper from the Chevron in Aquarelle paper pack.
Step 2 :
Then, I watercolored different colors on a watercolor cardstock and used the little flowers and leaves dies (that come in the Victorian Window thin cut dieset) with it. I assembled the flowers and leaves on the window panel.
* You can use colored cardstock instead of watercoloring *
Step 3 :
I then trimmed a sheet of textured white cardstock by Little Birdie to 5″ Γ— 10″ and scored at 5 inches creating a 5 Γ— 5 inches square card base.
On the front, I stamped the brick stamp with vintage photo distress ink.
Step 4 :
In the next step, I traced the inside of the window on the stamped panel. And then using a cutter, cut the traced part. After this, I adhered the completed window panel (from step 2) on the front panel.
Step 5 :
The next step I did was stamping and coloring these pretty images with various coloring mediums including distress inks. These are from the Jungle Birthday , Birthday Wish and Happy Bird-day stamp sets by Little Birdie.
I also adhered them together in a cluster.
Like this :
Step 6 :
Now, let’s make the inside pop up mechanism.
Cut a strip measuring 0.5″ x 4.25″ and score it at 0.75″ and 2.75″ and 3.5″.
Step 7 :
Stick double-sided tape onto the scored parts as shown.
Place the the strip with 0.75″ scored side close to the fold of the card as shown .
Take out the backing of that part and close the card.
It will look like this:
Step 8:
Now turn the strip to the other side and fold it at the 2.75″ scored part, taking out the backing from the last scored part, close the card again (like before).
It will look like this:
Step 9:
The next step involved adhering the cluster of the colored images (obtained from step 5) onto our created pop up.
* Add details with a white pen to enhance your images *

Step 10 :
I stuck a piece of Vellum on the inside of the window to recreate a real window. I also added strips of black washi tape onto both sides of the front panel to add interest and stamped a sentiment from my stash on the bottom.
And our Window Pop-up Surprise card is ready.
I am sure you would want to make it for your loved ones. Would love to see your creations!

Simple Birthday Wishes!

Hello Crafties!

I simply love the look of Clean & Simple cards. White Space in CAS cards is pretty attractive.

I aim for lots of it when making CAS cards.

For this card, I used the Birthday Wish stamp set by Little Birdie.

I colored these images with my inktense pencils in rainbow colors.

The border die is by Lawn Fawn. I used it to add a little interest.

Kept everything else simple, as the saying goes – Simplicity is the best virtue.

A Simple Birthday Card

Hello Crafties!

Creating a one layer card ( OLC ) seems pretty easy but believe me it really isn’t! The urge to keep adding more is real.

Today, I have an OLC birthday card with a geometric theme.

I created this card for my friend Milka’s I love Math Challenge.

I love participating in this challenge. It helps me to broaden my thinking with regards to using different elements.

For this card, I used the Safari Friends stamp set by My Favorite Things.

I used the 2 concentric square images.

The sentiment is by Concord & 9th.

I created a rainbow effect and also used ebony nuvo drops to finish off the card.

Hope you like the clean and simple look.

A Box of Happiness!

Hiya Crafties!

I am back with a box card this time! A box full of happiness!
I love these type of cards as they can be displayed on our shelves in addition to making us happy (which is their primary objective if you must know πŸ˜† ).

For this card, I made the basic box card layout. I’ll be posting a tutorial for the same soon.

The cutie girls and boys are from the Hello stamp set by Waffleflower.

I stamped, fussy cut and colored with my Inktense pencils!

The balloons are die cut from Paper Smooches dies.

I also used the Blotchy stencil by Little birdie along with various distress inks.

I adhered all of these with strips of acetate onto the box.

Aren’t they so cute?

Uniko Birthday Challenge – 7th Birthday

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.
