Hi Gorgeous | Concord and 9th | I love Math Challenge 17

Hello Crafties!

Today I have a one layer watercolored card for you.

I have used used the ‘Birthday Stacks’ stamp set by Concord and 9th. I stamped the balloons image from the set as trees with vintage photo distress ink.

I love stretching my stamps this way. Not only does it give value for money but it is so creatively satisfying too!

I then watercolored the images and the background with my inktense pencils. They give such a bright outcome. I simply love it.

The sentiment is also by Concord and 9th.

Do you also stretch your supplies?

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.

Have a great day ahead!

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?

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – B for Brown

A Bunch of Flowers

Hiya Crafties!

Coloring is a stress release therapy that not only kids but grown-ups too must partake.

It is especially useful when we have long travelling to do or are just plain bored. 😉

There are different coloring mediums we can use like color pencils, watercolors, copic markers, brush pens, etc. The list is endless.

For my one layer card today, I have used color pencils.

The beautiful stamp is by ‘Craftyscrappers’ called ‘Be kind – be you’.

I have done a bit of shading for the leaves and also the flowers.

First I stamped the image on watercolor cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx ink.

Then I colored in the image and fussy cut it.

I restamped the image after coloring to get crisper outlines. I used my Misti for this.

For the background, I used the ‘Distress Circles’ stencil again by ‘Craftyscrappers’ along with ‘Whipped Cream’ sparkling paste by ‘Little Birdie’ here & there.

I also sprinkled frosted sugar powder by ‘Dress my Craft’ over paste while it was wet.

The sentiment is from the same set.

Finished it off with white 3D outliner drops & Vanilla sparkling dotties.

Timeout challenges #119 : Frienship with one layer card

Happily Ever After!

Hey Crafties!

Today I am sharing a Clean and Simple aka CAS – One Layer card that I have created for MFT Superstar Challenge – Clean and Genius category.

Making a CAS card is so tough but if done properly then it sure makes an impact.

For this card, I used the ‘Once upon a time’ stamp set by My Favorite Things (MFT).

It is such a beautiful stamp set! Everything from the images to the font style is very pretty.

I decided to use the castle image and stamped it on watercolor paper and colored it. After fussy cutting, I stamped the image depicting a hill outline from the same stamp set. I colored it green and then stuck the castle image over it.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

To complete the card, I stamped the tiny heart images from the same stamp set with red brush pen and colored it with the same pen

I made this card dedicating it to all the fairytales I read and believed as a kid. I still do. Because who doesn’t love a happy ending? 😉
