As the celebration theme goes on and we have a perfect reason to celebrate Mudra's very 1st Birthday, here I come with a Birthday themed Card.
I am quite sure you all love this beautiful stamp set from Mudra which has the most beautiful butterflies!
Here, I have colored the image with three colors of Red, Orange and Yellow with Crayola Markers. I added some shimmer to it with Wink of Stella.
Then I gathered all the stamp sets from Mudra ( images are at the bottom of the post) and found all the images of BIRTHDAY sentiment. I stamped randomly all of them with Versamark leaving small gaps and them embossed them will clear embossing powder from Wow.
A circular diecut window is the best suited with the butterfly, that I thought. I adhered a piece of vellum to give a nice translucent look to the window. Here is the full image:
I hope you like the project and I know you are equally thrilled with the hop and a chance to win prizes, but there is a fair chance for everyone. Here is a small giveaway from me for this wonderful celebration.
One lucky winner will receive this handpicked goodie bag with this card. A winner will be selected on a random basis from the comments on this post. So, leave love and share as much as possible and follow these simple steps:
This time I am sharing a card made with pattern papers. I never pattern papers as such. I redeemed my winning prize voucher from Lulupu craft lounge and bought a pack of pattern papers : My funny valentine by Pebbles for this valentine's day.
I chose one of the papers with Happy valentine's day written all over. I cut a die frame out of the Gina Marie designs in pink color (cardstock). I stamped some distress inks with the background stamp from Hero Arts. Then I sprayed pearl mist all over the circular die cut to give a translucent look.
It looks a cover of vellum over the stamped background with the effect of pearl mist. I stamped some images from Lawn Fawn's Science of love and colored them with Crayola markers which are not good as copics but yes they are the cheaper alternatives.
I took the sentiment from the same set. Here it goes:
This is another card i had made for my debut post in Mudra blog. I have used their products solely here in this post.
I first took a card stock and masked it with a die cut from Gina Marie designs heart shapes. Then I applied distress inks with blending foam. the colors I chose were Raspberry pink, Festive berries, Spiced marmalade. I did not blend that well. Ii splattered some water droplets with a paint brush and waited for the magic to create.
Here is another card which i made in a jiffy. I have used Hero arts triangles back ground stamp to create a distressed background.
I stamped, colored and fussy cut the otter fro MFT.
I have used the Neat and Tangled set of Heart of gold for the die, stamp and the sentiment.
It is always fun to create shaker cards. I found the heart from Neat and Tangled to be a perfect element for shaker cards. To match up the sentiment, I added some tiny heart die cuts from glitter sheets. The stamped and colored hearts are from the Heart Background builder from Mudra Craft stamps.
Today's second card on the blog. I had bought this set of Heart of Gold from Neat and Tangled and I immediately fell in love with the set. I did not get tired of stamping with the same again and again and this single image of the triangled-heart is way too gorgeous!
I stamped randomly on a CS and embossed them with gold. I colored them with Distress inks. The sentiment is from the Avery Alle.
This is a much simple card which probably doesn't need any rules to follow or any tip as such needed. Just a tip: be careful while stamping with Versamark so that you do not overlap them anywhere keeping the gaps more or less uniform.
Today i am gonna share one card that I made for my debut post in Mudra'a blog (you can find the link in my earlier post)
when it comes to water color I go gaga over Fuji or transparent colors, not only they come at a really cheap price of 75 INR only but also they last long, water proof and rich in their results!
This time I decided to cut my time really short for card making. I took a Brushto 250gsm watercolor cardstock and ran my wet brushes with Light Blue, Light Green and Yellow colors from the folios over the CS.
I decided to let t dry on its own rather going for heat drying. I stamped images from the Beautiful sets from Mudra that you can find here
I used the Banner Trio dies from W9plus for the sentiment.
I have used some stamps from Mudra like the Linen Blooms and Daisy blooms and colored them with Fuji or transparent water colors, I Love them as compared to Distress inks as they dont give a faded look afterwards, they are always bright!
I cut down the central part with Gina Marie circular stitched die and used the sentiment over it from Mudra again ( 'Love' set )
I hope you have missed me. I was busy with exams :( couldn't craft and post anything as such.
As I got some time, made some cards as quickly as possible. Today I will be sharing some in an array.
This is the first card that I did with Altenew 'to the moon' set. I completely fell in love with the set. I bought the set in the Black Friday sale. But after I bought the same, I didnt know what to make from this. *confused* and eventually lost my mojo after so many days gap in crafting (almost two months).
I went to the altenew site and looked on to the inspirations and I found the masterpiece of Jocelyn Olson. I took her card as the inspiration and tried to remake it. I added the panel with blending some blues from Distress inks and sprinkling some pearl powder mixed with water. The set has layered images og moon, I took the second layer and embossed it with silver. The sentiment is from the same set.
I took the tiny stars from the Let's Party set from Mudra craft stamps India.
