Geometric Butterfly

Hello all,

With the ongoing Cas-ual Friday challenge, I thought to make a CAS card with the Geometric Butterfly from the Geometric Nature stamp set from Mudra.

The set is wonderful and provide a wide range of possibilities. I stamped the butterfly from the set on to a paper with Versamark and embossed it white. I colored them using Felt pens.

Fussy cut them and adhered on a Grey Cardstock with double sided tape. 


The sentiment is from the same set. I thought to choose pastel colors for the background against the colorful popping butterfly. 

I have used washi tapes to border the panel on three sides. The tiny butterfly is from the same set.

I hope you have liked the project.

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.

Science of love

Hello again,
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:

I took the inspiration from the birds in the picture and the colors of the season.

Masked valentine's day card

Hello all,

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. 

I stamped some hearts of different sizes from Mudra Clear Stamps - Heart Background Builder with White pigment ink.


I stamped the sentiment from Mudra Clear Stamps - Love set and the letter 'u' from Brushed alphas.





I ended it with a glitter sheet border. Thats it!

Gateway card

Hello,

Here is a another card which I made in minutes. I took the Heart of Gold set from Neat and Tangled and stamped it on a White Cardstock with Versamark.

Then I embossed the same with gold embossing powder from Ranger.

I colored the sections of the image with distress inks leaving some sections in white for the contrast.
I die cut the same with the coordinating Die from Neat and Tangled.

The I took a red card stock and folded in three parts. I ran through an embossing folder from We r memory keepers (geometric) to give the effect. 

I stamped the sentiment from Lots of love by Avery alle with Black archival ink on a vellum.

Welcome the otters

Hello again,

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.
I finished the card with some enamel dots.

Heart of Gold


Hello there,

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.

Watercolor craze!


Hello all,

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 completed the sentiment with the Mudra Clear Stamps - Brushed Alphas. This is a versatile one with which you can create any sentiment of your own choice.




I completed the card with borders of glitter sheets.

Water colored peek a boo

Hello Gorgeous,

Today I am sharing a card that I had made for the Debut post of Mudra craft stamps.
You can check the full post here >>



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 )

It's simple to do, Take a final look:

Slider cards

Hello all,

Inspired from Paru Mahtani who hosts wonderful monthly challenge (linked below), I tried my first slider card. And I must confess it was fun making it.

I tried with three stamps together:
1. Mudra craft stamps : Heart Background Builder
2. Hero Arts Background stamp
3. Lawn Fawn : Science of love

I stamped with the background stamp and embossed it with clear glossy embossing powder. Then I cut the circular panel with Gina Maria circle dies ( I must say these are great!)
Then I took the fussy cuts of the birds and adhered them on the sliding elements.

A super simple card with lots of fun! Take a look:

To the Moon

Hello all,

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.


Hope you like the project.

Thanks for stopping by.

To the moon and Back with Adorable Elephants

Hello again,

Here is my second card for today which I did with two sets. One from Altenew 'To the Moon' and MFT's "Adorable elephants"

I blended Blueprint sketch, Violet, Picked Raspberry and Mustard colors from the distress ink range on a water color paper. 

I stamped the stars from the Mudra's Let's Party set and embossed it with gold. I stamped the second layer of the moon and embossed it with silver, fussy cut it and adhered it with a mounted tape.

I stamped the images from the Adorable elephants, colored, fussy cut them. the grass is hand drawn.

Finally I used the sentiment from the Altenew set only.

I have never used any altenew stamp, this is my first puchase, and i have never used any critters in my design as i have been always a floral addictive person.


Hope you have liked my project.

Thank you!
