Bright colours for HLS June 23

Namaste, welcome to new calendar month and new challenge at HLS water colour challenge. This month the challenge is to use cue word BRIGHT. Click here to learn more abput challenge rules and inspiration.

I stamped image from SSS and coloured with Zig markers. First lets talk a little about behind the screen, when i actually read challenge theme i was bit confused as how to execute the word BRIGHT in card. Then few of my fellow team members suggested me to use fun bright summer colours and I hate summer, i just dont like it. So nothing striked to me then at the end i had to clean my mind, unlearn definition of BRIGHT and go to pintrest for colour suggestions.

Now coming back to my card, i fussy cut the floral image along one side and stamped a small sentiment at one end. Then foam mounted the coloured panel on embossed card base.

Hope my card justifies the word BRIGHT. What do you think,? let me know in the comment..

Thank you

A Beautiful Friend – HLS May 23

Namaste, welcome to my blog and its that time of month where we start new challenge at HLS die challenge. Its Anything goes with dies. So what are waiting for lets get crafty and enter HERE.

I bought these spellbinders die few months back and never had a chance to use them. So thought will use now. They say these mini slimline dies but the card is of slim card. Thats of bit surprising for me. Yes i did check product description still didnt think it will this big. Anyway i loved the card at the end of the day and that what matters. Isnt it?

I started with the sentient and then worked my way out to finish the card. I really took long time to finish this card as such layered card is not my place.

I embellished the card with tiny flowers from spellbinders. Love how those tiny flowers add so much interest to the card. I also dry embossed the white panel in the background with spellbinders embossing folder.

For every blue layer i added a golden die cut to add shadow and interst to the card design.

Did you like my new style in cards? let me know..

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

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..

Set of cards for an ORGANIZATION

Namaste, welcome to my blog and it’s time for new challenge at HLS blog for dies. The theme is anything goes with dies. More details click here

I came across an organization run by a couple who collects handmade cards for hospitals, patients and healthcare workers. I felt so happy to know because being a reason for someone’s smile is so precious that too when you don’t know the person. If you want to know more about them click here.

So keeping in mind this need I made set of birthday cards. I used Altenew dies, I specially wanted to use the U die. It’s so big that it covers the card panel and you don’t need anything much.

I used die cut inlay and monogram technique for the card set. Here are my cards.

I actually used every bit of the backgrounds I created. Positive and negative of the die cuts are used. I could stretch them even more but held myself. May be next time again.

Is there any personal favourite from this set? Let me know in comments.
