Stencilled Hibiscus!

Hello Crafties,

Stencils are so easy to use and pretty cost effective too! Today I have a card made entirely using stencils! Howzzat! πŸ˜†

I have a video tutorial in 2 parts on how I made this card below on my instagram:

Part 1:

Part 2:

I used layered hibiscus stencil by Craftreat and the plaid background stencil by Craftangles.

Inks used were distress inks amd distress oxides by Ranger. My favorites! ❀

For layered stencils, the trick is to use light colors on the base image and darker colors for the shaded parts.

By using the plaid background stencil, the hibiscus image stands out nicely against the dark blue color. Doesn’t it?

The sentiment is from a Pretty Pink Posh stamp set.

I made this card pretty quickly! That’s the fun part with stencils….

Hope you like my video tutorials and the card too!

Let me know in the comments below if you are inspired to make one.

I really appreciate your support.

Thank you for stopping by…

Have a great day ahead!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : Anything goes

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.

Hey Crafties!

We celebrated Teacher’s day in India on 5th September.
5th September is the birth anniversary of a great teacher Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, who was a staunch believer of education, and was a well-known diplomat, scholar, the President of India and above all, a teacher.

To celebrate this occasion I made 2 cards for my niece’s teachers!

I used the radiating rays stencil by Craftyscrappers.

For the green rays card, I used Twisted Citron distress oxide and Mowed Lawn distress ink through the stencil.

I diecut an oval piece of cardstock and blended Wild Honey distress oxide on it.

I then stamped, colored and fussy cut the cute girl image from Waffle Flower’s ‘Hello’ stamp set.

The sentiment I stamped from itsy bitsy’s ‘Happy Bird-Day’ stamp set.

For the Yellow rays card, I used Wild Honey distress oxide through that same stencil.

For this card, I stamped, colored and fussy cut the same girl image.

The sentiment is stamped in a contrasting color.

Made both these cards in less than an hour which was quite a feat for me πŸ˜€

Do let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Thank you for stopping by… Have a great day ahead!
