Guest Designing for The Twisted Challenges blog!

Hi Crafties!

I am so excited to be a Guest Designer for The Twisted Challenges blog for their February Challenge : Valentines day + No Red or Pink.

I love their themes. They help in challenging our creativity.

Well, Valentine’s day without pink or red seems a bit tough! But we ain’t gonna give up, are we?

So today I have a different type of interactive card for you – a wiper card.

I am sure this card would definitely make your love happy. That’s the aim, isn’t it? 😉

I used Bananas as my theme as Yellow is a color that makes everyone happy. 😄 (See the emoticons are yellow too)

You can see my card in action below :

Enough of the banter, let’s get to the card.

I used the ‘Berry Special’ stamp by Itsy Bitsy for the bananas.

I smooshed distress inks in the background in random fashion to create the effect of greenery.

The script stencil by Little Birdie, I used for added interest.

The surprise this card gives is so much fun.

The sentiment ‘I am Bananas for you’ is so mushy, I totally love it! 💛

And isn’t the monkey so cute too?
It’s from another little birdie stamp set called ‘Jungle Birthday’.

It was so much fun creating this card.

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

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 😀 ] or you are into other crafts [ high – five to you too 😀 ], 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.

Happy Birthday Foodie!

Hello Crafties!

Happy New Year! Hope the new year brings immense happiness & peace to you and your family!❤

Today I am back with an interactive card I made for a foodie!
Well, we all love to eat (I do 😉), don’t we?
But this card also contains a surprise! Something else we also love…

Check out the video below to see the surprise!

For this card, I smooshed some Wild Honey & Squeezed lemonade distress oxide on a white card panel.

I also stamped, colored & fussy cut images from my new Breakfast puns stamp set by Sunny Studio Stamps.
Those images are so cute, aren’t they?

For the interactive mechanism I used Surf & Turf dienamics by My Favorite Things.

I also stamped, colored & fussy cut the images from Hello stamp set by Waffle Flower stamps.

For the coloring I used my Inktense pencils!
