You Amaze Me

Hi Crafties!

Today I have a layered floral card using Altenew stamps.

I created background on blue cardstock using stripes stencil from Altenew along with dark blue ink to create a dramatic effect.

The flower is from the Painted Rose stamp set and so are the sentiments.

I love bright color combinations. What about you?

Altenew December Inspiration Challenge 2019

You are my Everything!

Hello Crafties!

Flowers are so inspiring that they make great art designs. They create that timeless feel.

Today I have a floral card using faux watercolor stamps.

Altenew makes awesome floral stamps and one of them is the Watercolor Wonders stamp set that creates faux watercolor effect.

It creates such pretty flowers that is helpful if you are new to watercoloring.

I used different distress inks and some hero arts inks for the card.

The stripes stencil is also by Altenew. I used gray to help enhance the floral colors.

The sentiment is from another Altenew stamp set called Painted Rose.

Finished it off with some splatters and clear sequins.

How do you like my faux floral card?

The Flower Challenge #38

Chalk Paint Cards

Hi Crafties!
This is my last project as a DT member for Itsy Bitsy 2019.
Let’s move on to today’s project…
I have several CAS cards for you today featuring Chalk Paints!
CAS stands for Clean and Simple cards. You can make all of these cards in a short time!
For the 1st card :
Step 1:
I used several colors of Chalk Paints. Do let me know in the comments below if you would like to know the names of each!
I used the paints with a flat brush in a swiping motion and then let them dry.
Step 2:
On this panel, I stamped the ‘Flowerful Gratitude’ stamp set with black ink.
Step 3:
Then I foam mounted the panel on a white card base and stamped a sentiment. I also rounded the corners for added interest. And my card is complete!
Now lets move to the next cards –
Both the cards are created from a single panel.
Step 1:
I did the wet on wet watercolor technique. It entails first giving a wash of water on the card panel and then coming in with the colour of your choice. I used Deep Sea Blue and Marsh Green chalk paints.
I let the colour flow on its own.
Step 2:
After drying the panel completely, I die cut the leaf from Fern forest dieset by Little Birdie.
Step 3:
You get two cards out of this. I adhered the negative panel on an A2 card base and stamped the sentiment.
I also created some splatters and added Little Birdie pearl drops.
Step 4:
I then swiped three stripes of chalk paint Marsh Green on a white card panel. And then glued the positive leaf diecut on it and stamped the sentiment.
*To match the colour of the diecut, I painted the borders of the card base with same Deep Sea Blue chalk paint*
Moving on to the last 2 cards.
Step 1:
I used the net stencil with Sailing Sky chalk paint on a white card base.
After I lifted the stencil, I immediately pressed the other side of it on another white card panel.
So you get 2 cards out of this one too!
Step 2:
I stamped the ‘Flowery wishes’ stamp on the stenciled image.
Step 3 :
After repeatedly stamping the sentiment, I glued the panel on a black A2 card base.
Step 4 :
I colored another white card panel with Charcoal chalk paint. And then diecut that panel twice with the same leaf die.
Step 5:
I adhered these 2 diecuts on the faded stenciled image panel. After stamping the sentiment and adding the pearl drops, both cards are complete.
I hope you liked my projects.
Which project did you like more?

Have a great day ahead!

A Celebration Card!

Hi Crafties!

Today I have a celebration card I made using Altenew stamps. Altenew is celebrating its 5th birthday. I love their beautiful stamps. If you already do not know about this brand, you should definitely check them out!

For this card, I did some ink blending on white cardstock using distress inks.

Then I used the stripes stencil by Altenew and sprayed water over it to get a mild effect of stripes.

The stamp set I used is called ‘Celebrations’ . It is such a pretty stamp set.

I decided to leave the images white.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Finished off the card with some ebony nuvo drops.

SimonSays Stamp Wednesday Challenge – No designer paper

Bloom Where You Are Planted!

Hey Crafties!

I am back with another floral card!

I did a lot of masking for this one. But it was worth the effort.

I used the Flower Bloom stamp & die set by Jillibean Soup for this card.

It has these tiny leaves & flowers stamps which helped me in making this bloom.

The sentiments are pretty nice too.

I first diecut the pointed banner die with masking paper and then stamped the images around it.

The inks used were by Hero Arts.

I am loving this color combo lately.

A Little Surprise!

Hello Crafties!

I love creating surprises inside my cards! Interactivity is so much fun!

For my card today, I have a surprise element hidden inside the card!

On first glance, it looks like a normal Christmas card.

But when you pull the cherry up, there is the surprise hidden! 😉

Isn’t it fun?

I tried the Pull tab technique shown by my crafting idol Jennifer Mcguire. 😍

You can check it here.

I used the cupcake topping from ‘Carnival Cupcakes’ stamp set by ‘Mama Elephant’. As I didn’t have any Christmas tree stamp!

The little girl is from ‘Girlfriends’ stamp set by ‘Mama Elephant’ again.

The sentiment & snowflakes are from ‘Janes Doodles’.

I used the ‘Whipped cream’ Sparkle paste by ‘Little Birdie’ from Itsy bitsy mixing it with Fired brick distress oxide!

The stripes stencil is by ‘Craftreat’.

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 :

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.
