Happy Diwali and A Very Prosperous New Year!

Hi Crafties!

Wishing you a happy Diwali and a happy and prosperous new year!

A little gif (t) for the big occasion :

Sharing an interactive card today after ages! Feels so good to have made one.

This is a standing card and I gave it a festive feel using a diya – an eternal symbol of light!

You can see the card in action below:

Stamps are by Mudra called Diwali decor.

The foiled paper pack is Opulent by Dress my Craft. And I have used Hero arts ink cubes for inking the stamps.

I love the layered diya as it adds so much dimension and interest.

This card makes for a pretty home decor.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : Anything Goes

Thanks A Bunch!

Hiya Crafties!

I have a very different card to show you.

It’s called a pendulum card and it was pretty easy to make in comparison to my other interactive cards.

You can see the card in action below:

The burning of the Amazon forest has been in the news lately.

We really need to be grateful to our forests and jungles and the animals residing in them.

Dedicating my card to this cause….

I have used the Critter Party and Label Love stamp sets by Mudra.

Saying that I love these stamp set would be an understatement.

They have such adorable images and awesome sentiments!

For the clouds, I used the cloud stencil by My Favorite Things.

Another one of my favorite.

Distress oxides are my go to inks for backgrounds.

I wanted to create a cheerful bright card. I guess I was successful in doing so!

What do you think? 😉

Window Flower Pop-Up Card

Hello Crafties!

Today I have a card that I made using stencils.

You can see the card in action below :

I have used stencils by CraftTreat.

The shaded flower stencil is pretty easy and fun to use. Lining up the layers is pretty simple too. I used distress oxides for the layering. I love using distress oxides for most of my inking. They are totally worth the investment in my opinion!

This is a window pop-up card. I have a tutorial for a similar card here.

So when you open the card, the inside image pops up. So fun!

The inside sentiment is by Gina K designs. And the outer one is my Mudra stamps.

For the outer panel, I used the Polka dot stencil again by CrafTreat.

I loved making this quick and easy card! Would you make one too?

A Tree of Warm Wishes!

Hey Crafties!

Now-a-days, I am loving making interactive cards!

Today I have a Pop up Slider card which slides to reveal a tree full of critters!

I created this tree by masking small stamps and arranging them in a triangular shape!

The stamps are from Mama Elephant.

The closed card looks like this :

I watercolored the background to look like the night sky.

I also added Nuvo crystal drops to look like snow.

The sentiment stamp is by ‘Honey bee’.

Happy Diwali!

Hiya Crafties!

Diwali is just around the corner!

It is a hindu festival of lights. We celebrate it by eating a variety of sweets and lighting diyas and fire-crackers.

I made this card for my niece’s teacher.

I first stamped the Diya (lamp) from the Diwali Decors stamp by Mudra using various Hero arts dye inks.

After that I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set.

The hexagon diecut is from an earlier card I made. I like to save negatives of diecuts and use them as & when I need in a card.

I also distressed the edges of the panel with dye ink to bring everything together.

Adhered the panel onto a readymade yellow colored card base by Itsy bitsy.

I also cut the card in a house shape to add interest. Also, with a fine tip red pen, I added details on the card base. Finished it off with Sparkling dotties by Itsy Bitsy.

Tunnel Inside!

Hi Crafties!

Layers in cards are so much fun to make and also create so much interest.

Today I have a inside tunnel card where I have created a jungle inside.

For the front , I kept it monochrome with the color green.

I used the ‘Happy’ sentiment stamp by ‘Craftyscrappers’ and applied Twisted citron & Lucky Clover distress oxides to create shaded effect.

I also added stripes using the ‘Fun with stripes’ stamp set by Mudra and finished it off with green sparkling dotties.

Here’s the inside :

I used the ‘Critter Party’ stamp set by Mudra stamps.

The amazing Jennifer Mcguire has step by step instructions on youtube. You can check out her blog post here.

For the ink blended background, I used Twisted Citron & Lucky Clover distress oxides.

I stamped, watercolored & fussy cut the images and adhered them accordingly.

I also used a cloud stencil with Salty ocean distress oxide.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Here is the video of my card in action :

Stamped Accessories

Hi Crafties! Today I am back with a post which involves stamping but not on cards! Curious? Read ahead to know more.

I used stamps by Mudra. And hero arts dye inks. You can use any brand.

First, I stamped the cute elephant image from Critter Party (one of my favorite stamp sets) twice on watercolor cardstock with black versafine ink.

I then watercolored with Koi watercolors. You can use whichever coloring medium you are comfortable with.

For the other pieces, I stamped the moustache and the hat from ‘The Man’ stamp set, the school bag from the ‘Beach fun’ stamp set & the flower bunch from the ‘Mogra layers’ stamp set.

After fussy cutting [fancy term for cutting with scissors 😉 ] all the images, I then brushed Sparkle Mod Podge over them. After they thoroughly dried, I generously applied Mod Podge Dimensional Magic over each of them and left them to dry overnight.

Using hot glue I then attached brooch pins to the pink elephant & Brown school bag, big paper clips to the hat & flower bunch and the ring base to the moustache. To the blue elephant & pink school bag, I stuck pieces of magnetic tape.

I made 2 brooches, 2 magnets , 2 paper clips & 1 ring in total.

I had also made a multicolored elephant magnet, but I wasn’t able to find it when I took the pics.

Being able to combine my love for stamping with making ready to use accessories makes me very happy.
