Chemistry with MFT for HLS water colour challenge – April 23

Namaste, welcome to my blog for April 23 water colour challenge. The theme of the challenge is Die cut. I actually wanted to use this cute set so made 2 cards. For more information on challenge and rules please visit here.

I loved these cute images from MFT and i coloured them with Zig markers. I wanted to keep the card simple with minimal layers. Used co-ordinating card base and didtress inks to blend on front panel. Sentiments are from Unenviable chemistry, i used essential speech bubble die for sentiments.

I also added few die cuts and stamped few images on the card front for texture and interest.

Thank you for visiting.. Let me know which one you liked among the two..

Hls water colour challenge – March 2023

Namaste, welcome to my blog. We at HLS challenges had 2 months vacation and now we are back with new challenges. This month its Anything goes- Wings, for more details about challenge you can visit link.

Previously i coloured alot of images. I am not a person who keeps elements ready and make as and when needed. It feels too much for me and drains my creativity. But after becoming mother my son taught me its BETTER TO BE READY THAN BEING SORRY. So i stamp and colour images whenever possible.

And for 2023 i have decided to make atleast 2 cards instead of making one. So its a good way to try 2 designs with similar elements. So to make these cards i just had to arrange elements as everything was ready.

Which card you liked? I loved the brightness of these cards. I so struggle with keeping everything white.

Birthday cards #46 AAA BIRTHDAY

Namaste, welcome to my space and i am here to share my cards for AAA BIRTHDAY challenge for february. Please make note that AAA birthday challenge is now monthly challenge it starts on 1st of the month. The theme is to use stencil. For more details visit here.

I literally struggled to make tjesecards. My plan was to ink blend but most of my inkpads are dry so i couldnt as i didnt get the right colour combination i wanted. So at the end i used embossing paste and embossing powder to make my card front.

I used wow embossing powders for the cards. Btw i have those die cut pieces which for sure you will see son in my posts on Instagram. @thedreampages1021

After joining AAA BIRTHDAY challenges i have kept few birthday sets in my reach so i can grab them quickly while making cards.. Thats why you see few sentiments again and again..

Hope you liked my cards, let me know which colour combination you liked. I hope you will join us at AAA BIRTHDAY challenges. Stay safe and keep crafting.

Thank you

CAS birthday card AAA #45

Namaste, welcome to my blog. Its new calendar year and new challenge at AAA birthday challenge. The theme of the challenge is Anything goes with birthday theme. For more details visit blog here.

Ink blending was always my favourite technique. But right now all my ink pads are dry so i cant use them. Its story of every year so i stopped reinking them. But for the first challenge of the calendar year so I ink blended small piece of paper and die cut it to make my card center and stamped a small sentiment which fits perfectly in this small space.

I dry embossed the card panel and added the ink blended piece on card front. For interest i used silver thread behind the sentiment and few enamel dots.

Here is my card

Thank you for visiting.

Namste, Welcome to the last challenge for 2022 at HLS die cutting challenge. For more details about the challenge visit blog here.

For this post I wanted to make something special. I made this card for a special person in my life now thats Katraina Folkman. She is an influencer, life couch. She really changed my life in better way. Coming to my post, I used many spellbinders dies and creative expressions die for the card. The KALASH die is from Dress my craft.

I know many artist who make more gorgeous cards than this but this card blew my mind and filled me with confidence that i can make such layered cards too.

CAS cards with dies – GD Crealise

Namaste, Swapna here with my next post for Crealise, First let me share something about crealise dies. They add so many extra inner dies so it becomes so easy to do die cutting fun. When you buy any interactive dies you will realize it.

Lets talk about my today’s post. Cards are self exploratory so not much photos.

Card 1

I used the sentiment Happy, horizontal one with the frame and ran through die cutting machine with different colour card stocks. Glued them on a panel diagonally. And before gluing the took sentiment printout and that was a task for me as a person who doesnt like computer works. Added few enamel dots for accent.

Card 2

I used vertical sentiment with inner die for this card. I used smaller panel for this card and kept gluing the sentiments, I actually ran out of die cuts so on the last line i added plain die cut so it gives enough space after sentiment. I scored diagonal lines on card base to added some texture and break all those vertical lines going on. Added few enamel dots as accents.

Card no 3

It’s the simplest as I had lot of plain die cuts I just arranged them on a panel and cut the panel in circle shape. And I took print out of sentiment on a coloured card stock and die cut it out to put on the panel.

Thank you so much for dropping by hope to see you soon again with another post soon..
