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..

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

Atsm Make your mark

Namaste, welcome to my blog. Here I am sharing a new card for ATSM Make your mark challenge, stencils were and are always my favourite tool to use and technique to try. Click the link for more information on the challenge, rules and inspiration here

I am actually loving card challenges now a days. They keep me creative and think a little extra.

I made 2 cards with same design n supplies. I used hefty doodle stencil n applied embossing paste on it n then poured wow embossing powder, I wanted that extra raised design. I heat set it. Used mft die n applies few coats of embossing powder to achieve that chipboard look.

Then the card was very easy, but sentiment placement was too hard for me. Let me know where you would place sentiments? Now let’s have look at my cards..

Thank you for your time.

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.

A simple birthday card

Namaste everyone.. Welcome to my blog. Today is a new challenge at Addicted to stamps and more and challenge is Birthday. Foe more details on the challenge and more inspiration click HERE

I made a simple red and golf birthday card using SSS screen elements die. This die is in my collection from so many years and I never used it. So thought why not challenge self and make a card.

I die cut the heart shape from white card front and mirror card stack. Glued both a little off set so that gold peeks out. Then foam mounted the panel on a red card base. I ran the card front through die cut machine using Little inker designs die. Which adds a little iinterest to the back ground.

Sentiment is from SSS and i gold heat embossed it and added glod mirror cs as mat.

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you participate in the challenge..

  • Then placed stencil again and applied a coat of translucent embossing paste and poured iridescent embossing powder.
  • Left it to dry and zapped with heat gun.
