Card for a friend

Hello,

I am Priyadarshini here with another card for Le Anns World 101 using image Pete.
The card is a CAS card as usual and I had lots of fun colouring him and turning him into a card for a friend. I used 2 sets of colour pencils here to show the difference in the quality and used 110 lbs niniah white card stock. 


I did a lot of layers using pattern paper and added a sentiment vertically on a oval die cut vellum. I used polychromos colour pencils to colour him.


My second card, I coloured with simple colour pencils from Faber Castell. Made a kind of sketch here by adding 2 strips of colour paper on the back and a piece of pattern paper and vellum piece. To finish the card, I added a sentiment. 

I hope you enjoyed the card.

Subtle coloured card

Hello,

For today's post I am using a sketch from CAS-ual fridays challenge and Colour my heart colour dare challenge. I decide to link the sketch and colours to make a beautiful floral card using Floral motifs stamp set from Altenew. Altenew has wonderful range of floral stamps and they work perfectly for such cards.


For this card, I kept the colours very subtle and light. I used some pattern papers as per the sketch. 
I stamped and coloured with colour pencils (I prefer pencils as I feel I can control the colouring). I added a white pearl to the center of one flower to give a little effect. The liquid pearls I used a colour similiar to the flowers. 

Link to the challenges are provided below along with the sketch and colour palette. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Colours I choose from this tic-tac-toe is sugarplum,white daisy and glacier

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------



I hope you all liked my card.

Happy crafting.

Stenciling techniques

Hello,

I am here for Craftyscrappers DT and have an easy stenciling tutorial. I have used 2 stencils from Craftyscrappers and the technique is super easy. I have a link to the video post as well. 


Video link:  Stenciling technique tutorial video



Card 1




  1. I took 4 different shades of gray colour inks from Altenew
  2. I secured my stencil to the card stock.
  3. Using ear buds, I started adding colour to the stencil. I went by randomly adding colour to give each design in the stencil highlights.
  4. I stamped and coloured the butterfly
  5. I die cut the stencilled piece and added the same to a circle vellum piece
  6. I added the butterfly to the stencilled circle and stamped some little butterflies and sentiment.
  7. To finish the card, I added some embellishments.
Tips
  • Tracing paper can also be used as an alternative or vellum IF only being used for backgrounds.
  • This technique using ear buds works well for stencil which has intricate design as well as large designs.
  • Dye inks works best for this technique
Card 2


  1. I secured the stencil to the cardstock
  2. Since I am using colour pencils for this technique, I keep them sharp.
  3. I chose rainbow colour and started randomly adding colour
  4. Here, I used polychromos pencils
  5. I took 2 shades of each colour for this technique.
  6. Once I am done colouring, I added an oval die cut with a sentiment to the center of the card
  7. To finish it, I added some half dull gold beads.
Tips
  • Any colour pencil works for this technique
  • Any stencil design works for this technique.
  • Best technique for one-layer card
  
Card 3


  1. For this card, I did regular stenciling using Altenew inks
  2. I stamped my favourite image and coloured her.
  3. When I fuzzy cut this image, I left some gap from the image and added a black outline using alcohol markers.
  4. I added the sentiment and liquid pearls to finish the card.
Tip:
  • Black stock can be used instead of alcohol markers as outline
  • This technique is best for one-layer card.

I hope you all liked my card

CAS halloween card

Hello everyone,

I am here as DT for Cute N Crafty Mommy. I am using digital stamps from My besties. This is a perfect image for a Halloween card. 



I printed these out, coloured and added them to a purple ombre pattern paper. This is a top fold note card and I added the sentiment to the bottom of the card as I wanted to focus more on the image.

Tag card

Hello everyone,

I am here with a new card post and I call it a tag card. I have made a tag card previously (will link that post below) but this is totally different from the previous one. You might wonder how this tag card works. Its a side fold square card and the tags are placed in the front of the card and they are removable. You can write a sweet secret message in these tags. 




IMG_20180922_184131 (1)

The image I used here is from The Paper Shelter (one of my favourite digital stamps) and the image I used is called Brave and Cute Knight (it is very cute and loved colouring him and I call him Edward the Knight :)).

How did I make this card:

  1. I coloured and fuzzy cut the image. Then, die cut a vellum piece (tracing paper works instead of vellum for die cutting a circle) and added that to a pattern paper.
  2. I used another pattern paper for the background.
  3. I added a piece of embossed cardstock horizontally in the front of the card using foam adhesives. 
  4. I added my image to the front, in the middle so I have space to add my sentiments. I stamped 2 sentiments here, one is 'Be brave, be happy' (on white card stock) and the other directly which says happy birthday knight.
  5. I made 2 pieces of tags (more can be added here as me have enough space)
  6. I added the front piece to the card base and place the tags behind the image so they can be removed. 

Submitting this card to the following challenges:
  1. Addicted to stamps
  2. Heart craft paper
  3. a bit more time to craft
  4. lemon short bread challenge
  5. Crafting with friends
  6. Angie digital stamps
  7. artistic inspirations challenges
  8. qkr stampede
  9. Sum more fun
  10. colour crazy challenge


I hope you all liked my card.

Its a 5 x 5 card and I stamped the floral image on the corner of the card and coloured with pencils. 
I randomly added the stencil on the background along with a sentiment. 
To finish the card, I added some liquid pearls. 



Stencil highlighting




For my second card, first I used some embossing paste using honey comb stencil for the background and let it dry. 

Then I used Dahlia flowers stencil, I used coral berry ink for the flower and bamboo ink for the leaves. 
I used some colour pencils, to highlight and give some shade to each petal in the flower and leaves.
I worked my way from dark to medium for colouring. I put together the flower and leaves and added some liquid pearls to finish the card. 

(This technique works with any stamp floral, abstract, etc....)




Stamp highlighting



For the next card I am focusing on stamp highlighting. 

I used script stamp from Hello sunshine stamp set for the background where I repeatedly stamped it on the background using evening gray inks. 
I die cut a square and did some stenciling using distress circles and added the sentiment and added this to a vellum square sheet. 
I stamped the flowers and leaves from Sending hugs stamp set using lavender fields and frayed leaf for leaves.
I used colour pencils to highlight the flowers and some of the leaves. (I didn't highlight some of the leaves as my main focus is on the flowers)
I added some flower sequins to finish the card.

(Tip: This technique works only with solid flower stamps)




Texture background




My last card is here where my focus is on some texture using stencils and pastes. 

For the background, I used diamond pattern 2-in-1 stencils and Orchid dazzle paste and Martina shimmer paste (I used heat gun to dry it).
In a piece of card stock I used Abstract stencil with Fog dazzle paste and circle die cut and added a piece of vellum on top of the die cut.
I added the sentiment on the vellum piece.
To make this card more better, I added foamiran flowers on one side of the circle.
I used double sided foam adhesive to add this card piece to the stenciled background. 


There is endless possibility with this theme.
