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

Hi.. Crafty friends…

Here I am with my second DT post. To be frank I really struggled and liked the process of these 3 cards. I hope you are playing along with our October challenge which is a recipe. Please do read Guidelines carefully before linking your project.

Card #1
** I masked the card base (1″around the card base), placed the stencil diagonally on the base and secured with masking tape.
** I mixed candid apple distress ink with texture paste, applied it through stencil. Left it dry on its own.
** Die cut the scalloped frame (bigger) with same CS, few vellum fern flourishes and one white fern flourish.
** I double heat embossed the CS fern flourish with gold embossing powder to give it dimension. Die cut few Thank you, adhered them together and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
** To assemble the card, I foam mounted the frame on card base around the stencilled area. I put silver embroidery floss on top of which glued ferns. Added the sentiment.

Here is a close up of die cut embellishments, just love this texture of white embossing powder.

** Used distress inks in blue range to blend over them.
** I stamped the image towards bottom and coloured with Staedler water colour pencils.
** Stamped sentiment with black ink.
** Used stitched rectangle die to die cut these panels.
** I glued these panels with liquid glue leaving little space in between.

Stencil again – 4 cards

Here i am with few cards. I wanted to make cards for ICR challenge  but realised I dont have such stamp to chose. It took me 25 days to realise that i can use my stencils too. So I made these cards with stencil. In excitement I made 4 cards but only two fit to the competition rules (poor me…:( ).
Card #1
(Stencil + Love sentiment + Die cut circle)
This is simple card, i placed the stencil and applied embossing paste on it and after removing stencil i poured white glitter embossing powder, once it dried completely i zapped it with heat tool. Then mounted the panel on a white card base. For sentiment i die cut a scallop circle from navy card stack and plain circle from white. Stamped the sentiment with blue ink and mounted these with foam tape.
Card # 2
(Stencil + Love sentiment + Die cut circle)
I placed the stencil over the panel and secured it completely, then applied versa mark ink directly and after removing the stencil poured gold tinsel embossing powder and zapped with heat tool. For sentiment i did the same as the above card but changed the sentiment.
Then finished the card with few heart sequins.
I couldnt capture the sparcle from embossing powder in photo 😦
I am entering these cards to ICR – Feb challenge
Stay tuned for few more cards with same stencil
