Birthday card: snowflake

Hi everyone,

I posted this card long ago on Instagram (it's just so easy with phone in your hand), but blogging it was eluding me. Finally, it's here. I made this for entering the Papericious challenge for July 2016. Here is the extremely versatile moodboard they have for the month:

Everything about this moodboard invokes creativity. I made this card using Papericious Color celebrations paper pad. I wanted more of a gender neutral card, but then it's a girl this is meant for. So, I used the combination of glitter and doily to make this card:


For the centerpiece snowflake, I used a Sizzix snowflake die, and for the rest, I used 2 sizes of snowflake punch. Here is a closer look at the card where you can see the dimension a little better:


And finally, i realised I lacked a sentiment to go with this modern looking design. So, I decided to write my own. The lines on this paper made it really easy to write in a straight line.

I outlined the word "snowflake" with a silver pen! not so visible here. :(

I hope you visit Papericious blog; they do have some pretty awesome inspiration for card makers, and of course, pretty paper designs. :)

Thanks for visiting. Have fun! :)


Shaker card: Rainbow green

Hi everyone

I made a shaker card today! And this one has green basics just to complement the green of the card stock I used. First, I die cut the squares using Spellbinders dies. Then I put sequins in a rainbow order in all four of the squares. Finally I coloured a flourish using Mudra "special day" stamp. The sentiment is from the same stamp.

Here are some pics:


Hope you got inspired!
Have a nice day! :)

Stamping using acrylic stamps

Hey there!

We all know that acrylic stamps have taken the world of rubber stamps by a storm. These are not only cheaper, buy allow better stamp quality. Acrylic stamps take most types of ink really well.

Using acrylic stamps with permanent alcohol markers:

- Most acrylic stamps take alcohol markers pretty well. This is a great way to let your sentiment's ink match perfectly with the rest of your project.
- Many crafters fear the inks will ruin their stamps, and sadly it is partially true. Alcohol inks harm stamps, and shorten their life. Therefore, try doing it only when you run out of options. Just remember to clean up your stamp immediately after use using a wet wipe.
-Even if the colour shows through your stamp, it means the stamp has taken up ink really well.

Using acrylic stamps with dye inks:

- Dye inks are bright, permanent inks which last for a longer time than pigment inks.
- Dye inks work extremely well with acrylic inks.

Using acrylic stamps with pigment inks or chalk inks:

- Pigment inks are less bright as compared to dye inks.
-Chalk inks are nothing but more concentrated pigment inks.

Using acrylic stamps with acrylic paints:

- You would not believe this but if you are short on cash to buy inkpads, go with the inexpensive acrylic paints.
- Acrylic paints do tend to spread out while stamping, so avoid stamping sentiments using this technique.
-A great trick here is to use second generation stamping for a perfect image.
- Do NOT dilute paint with water for this technique as water tends to make the paint less sticky for the stamp surface.

Using acrylic stamps with distress inks:

- Nope, distress inks do not stick to acrylic stamps properly. But it really depends on the quality of your stamp. The better it is, the better it will take up distress ink.
- This technique is a fun way of stamping and colouring without solid border around the image.

Hope this helps. :)
Enjoy!

CRD1516: Anniversary card



Hello everyone.. Looks like I create so many cards and scrapbooks but hardly gather the time to edit and upload pics. Here I decided to just post them unedited. Blame my laziness. :P

Yellow is such a soft and pretty colour, isn't it? This card is somewhat off balance in terms of the arrangement of flowers coz I made it with my young cousins...and they liked this arrangement! So we went with it!

Yet, it turned out fine I believe!

Almost everything I used here is low budget- chinese floral fabric tape, square punch (small), bangle!!! I hope you give this project a try! :)




Thankyou for visiting my blog. Have a nice day. :)

I hope you like it and find some inspiration. :)
