Mandala Art

Hiya Crafties!

Mandalas are so pretty to look at. They are therapeutic to draw and paint too.

I have used a 12×12 stencil by Itsy Bitsy.With a variety of distress oxides, I blended them on the stencil.I added the handmade flower by Little Birdie in the middle for a festive look.

The sparkling dotties are so pretty and add to the complete look of this home decor project.

I also stamped in the corners with little birdie stamps.

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 ombré 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?

Partial Heat Embossing

Hiya Crafties!

Heat Embossing gives such a royale effect to our cards without doing much!

I did partial heat embossing technique by my fav Jennifer Mcguire for my card.

You can find her tutorial here.

This is my card:

I used the Large Petal background stamp by Hero Arts .

First I stamped with Versamark ink.

I then poured the WOW White Pearl Superfine embossing powder over it. With a fine brush, I removed the powder from the outer design carefully.

The white powder being transparent took on the color of the gray cardstock. The metallic shine it gives is so beautiful. The picture doesn’t do it justice.

I colored the stamp with my Inktense pencils.

The large number die is by Altenew.

I used the inlaid diecutting technique and foam mounted the number diecuts cut from a watercolored cardstock colored with yellow.

This way I can use the positives of the number diecuts in another card.

Finally I adhered the panel on A2 card base by Itsy Bitsy.

Muse Challenge #293 : Anything goes

A Simple Birthday Card

Hi everyone! Today is my very first post on cardmaking. I am so excited to start this journey of chronicling my cards. I have a simple card for today.

I used the Craftreat Mandala stencil.

First I took some white cardstock and diecut it with a rectangle-die.

Then placing the stencil in the left hand corner of the cardstock, I secured it with masking tape.

After that I took Faded jeans & Wild honey distress oxide and blended them with finger daubers.

I stamped the sentiment with same inks using stamps from Craftyscrappers and Little birdie stamp sets.

Then I adhered the panel on a slightly bigger pattern paper and mounted the whole panel on an A2 card base.

Hope you liked it. Do let me know in the comments!
