Alcohol ink card

Hi there,

Today I have a two cards made using alcohol inks. I used alcohol inks from Little birdie along with ink blending tool... I have made these cards as an inspiration post for Happy craft challenge design team.

I used normal card stock and not alcohol card stock and used heat gun and brush to blend the inks.. 
It is fun to play around with the inks. They move and blend so smoothly creating a new and shiny look. These inks have to be left to dry for about a day to avoid the stickiness. Once its dry, it has a glossy and shiny look. 

Materials used:
1. Midnight blue
2. Citron breeze
3. Purple haze
4. Alcohol blending solution
5. Kraft cardstock
6. Vellum sheet
7. White cardstock
8. Gemstones
9. Stamps for sentiment





I hope you all liked this card
Until my next post...

Stencil embossing and digital image

Hello there,

I am happy to announce that I have joined Happy Craft Challenge as a design team member and its hosted by Megan Flynn from Australia. 

My first card as a team member and I have made an embossed background using stencils and added a digital image from Paper Shelter. The image I used here is Blue Marquise and I coloured her using pencils. 

For the background, I used a stencil to do dry embossing. I used an embossing pad to do the dry embossing and run it through my die cut machine. Foam sheets can also be used instead of embossing pad. 

I used a pattern paper for the background of the card and added the embossed sheet and the image to the card base. I finished the card by adding sentiment and some gemstones. 




Hope you all liked the card

Inking on pattern paper

Hi there,

I am here with another project today where I have shown simple stencil inking on pattern paper to create more texture to the paper and turn it into a fun card. 


I have used inks, stencils and stamps from Craftyscrappers to make this card. This is a simple card technique and the card itself speaks a lot here. 

I have used 3 similar colours for inking. These are dye inks and they work beautifully. They are water based inks and act like distress inks. They reactive well with water hence can also be used for water colouring and they are POCKET-FRIENDLY. 

To keep the rest of the card simple, I added a fuzzy cut floral image which is stamped and coloured. I added this image to the card and finished by embellishing some white pearls. 







Challenges entered:
1. Creatilicious challenge
2. Lemon short bread challenge

Materials used:
1. Craftyscrappers stamps

    b. Leo

8. Walnut stain distress oxide ink
9. Circle die cut
10. Layered die cut

Since there is not much to write about the post, I have lots of pictures below here. 
For the base I used pattern paper and decoupage sheet.For the front cover (the first picture), I used decoupage sheet, some die cut pieces, MDF embellishments and a Mdf sentiment to decorate the front of the calendar. 




The rest of the calendar, I kept it simple as I wanted to focus on the image. Hence, kept them very simple. I coloured the images with my polychromos and tombow colour pencils. 

I die cut 2 circles one from white cardstock and other from black cardstock. I layered them together and added the fuzzy cut images to them. 

To the base, I added pattern paper and every month has a different pattern paper. I added some burlap and a lace die cut to the base. Then added the image and the month with dates. I did the same for all the other months too. Then, I added the jump rings and fixed it to the base.

Mixed media board and card

Hi there,

I am here with another project for Little blue button stamps and today, I have a mixed media board and a card to go along with this. 

I used Miss Lilly - Chef for both the projects. This is a super cute image and I love turning her into a card and a mixed media board. I made the board for a friend who loves baking and also added a sentiment here which says 'Baking is my therapy'. 

I used chalk paint for the base and then did some stenciling using shimmer paste from Craftyscrappers and let it dry for a while. Once dry, I added some burlap lace and chipboard. I printed out some cupcake images and coloured them. I added all the images together and added some mdf embellishments. I die cut the letters for the sentiment and added it to the board. I used some mod podge to seal the base. 












I kept the card simple as always. Here the focus is on the image. I used banner dies from Lawn Fawn and tied both the banners using a twine. I added the image on top of the die cut banner.
