Modern One Layer Card with Honey Bee Stamps


Hello everyone! I was up on Honey Bee Stamps Blog a couple days back with this card made using Hello Gorgeous Stamp Set from their November release which I love the most. I have a few card designs right now running in my head, when time permits I will definitely share them with you all :)

This stamp set has got beautiful, one of a kind images that go perfectly with the sentiments that are already in the set. :) First I have chosen the stamps that should go on my card and then I went for colors. I decided to use only two colors – Aquamarine and Jet Black inks on my card.


CARD DETAILS :

I started by stamping the ‘hello’ sentiment in Aquamarine ink to create my own background. I didn’t want my stamping to be perfect so I didn’t concentrate much on stamping because that imperfection would help to bring that trendy look to your cards. Next I aligned the sentiments and stamped in Archival Jet Black Ink. To bring more depth to the card I added tiny splats of black paint followed by sequins. 

VIDEO DETAILS :

I have filmed a video for you where I’m showing you everything in detail from start to finish


Thanks for stopping by, see you later! :)

    You Are Simply The Best | Layout


    Hello everyone! This is my very first proper Mixed Media Layout and I'm happy how it turned out. I was very much inspired by the mood board I saw on Berry71Bleu "Navy Is My Neutral" November 2016 Challenge :) Very cool!


    I sprayed Mermaid Lagoon and Memento Fire Paris Dusk ink sprays on 8x8 heavy white card layout. I allowed the inks to drip and flow!


    Next I applied gold and silver paints with my fingers and applied Crackle Accents here and there!


    Next I stamped 'cherish,love,adore' stamp from Kaisercraft in Archival Jet Black Ink.


    Next I die-cut two butterflies from Sizzix and colored them with the same colors and adhered the larger butterfly at the center with twine as my focal point. Also adhered the smaller butterfly at the left with some washi tapes!


    Next stamped the sentiment from Technique Tuesday on black card stock and heat embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder.


    Finally added a few sequins and finished my layout. I'm very new to this Mixed Media thing and I don't have the right supplies. But I decided to start with whatever stuff I have in my stash because I'm in love with it! I hope you like it. Thanks for visiting! :)

    Hello everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of Foundations Box Blog Hop.Today I am sharing a few Clean and Simple cards made with Catherine Pooler's Foundations Box. I'm super happy to be part of this team and thank you so much Catherine for having me. Okay!! This box has got all the awesome goodies perfect for beginners or for masters. If you want to know more details about this box please click here.

    A little about Foundations Box

    This box contains Pre-scored Card Stocks, five Ink Pads, three Stamp Sets and one Acrylic Block all from Catherine Pooler Designs. 

    Card Stocks - These card stocks come in a packet of thirty sheets. These are very smooth, bright and perfect for any type of technique. 

    Ink Pads - Rich, vibrant, juicy, gives full coverage to the image, gives the crisp impression and I'm absolutely in love with these inks

    Stamp Set - They are made of high quality photopolymer, and they are so versatile.

    I made six cards along with videos. I didn't do or use any fancy things at all. These cards are pretty straight forward and the design itself speaks about the card. So let's get started!


    CARD #1


    Stamps used - For Everything
    Inks used - Rockin' Red, Green Skirt and Midnight

    1. I took the card stock and folded the creased line well.

    3. I did the same with the green ink also and created that plaid background.
    4. Next I took the tiny little cup and the sentiment from the set and stamped onto another panel with Rockin' Red Ink and Midnight Black Ink respectively and fussy cut it with my scissors.

    Clean and Simple Card


    Hello everyone! I'm just quickly popping in to share this CAS card made for Little Tangles where the challenge is Clean and Simple. As you guys already know that I'm very fond of CAS creations but recently I have fallen for Mixed Media Layouts. Yup! Here is my first 8x8 layout made for Creative Retreat with a video! You will see more layouts in future posts.. haha!! :P

    Okay! Now let's get into the details of this card! I took a standard sized white card base, created my own cloud template (you can watch my previous video here for the cloud template) and sponged it with Memento Bahamas Blue. I added tiny droplets of black paint with my paint brush. Next I stamped the bird on a piece of white card stock and water colored it with Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed Distress Inks.


    Then applied a nice coat of Wink of Stella clear glitter pen, fussy cut it and adhered it on top of my card base with foam tape. Also stamped the hearts and colored them with Camlin Brush Pens, fussy cut them and adhered onto the card front. Finally stamped the sentiment and finished my card off :)

    I hope you like this card. Thanks so much for stopping by. See you later! :)

    A Non Traditional Holiday Card for Hero Arts Holiday Challenge | Video


    Hello everyone! I LOVE Hero Arts products but I have a very few Hero Arts stamps in my stash. As soon as I saw their Holiday Cardmaking Challenge, I jumped in joy. I found the Baby Animals stamp set which is one of my absolute favorites! To create a holiday card I turned those fun banners into Holiday trees! ;)


    I took a white card panel which is slightly smaller than the main card base and blended the background with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. Next I added tiny droplets of white paint for snow! I then stamped the little cat and banners on another card stock with Archival Jet Black Ink which is a water proofed ink and water colored those images with water based markers


    Next I fussy cut the images with scissors and adhered them onto the card panel. Finally stamped the sentiment from Everyday Sayings with Archival Jet Black Ink and finished my card off with sequins from Lucy's cards and Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen :)


    I love how this card turned out! I have also filmed a video for you from start to finish where I shared tips and techniques along the way! :)


    Also entering this card for A Blog Named Hero November "Challenge" Holiday Themed .I hope you like this card and I will come up with another card design. Thank you so much for stopping by. Take care and I will see you soon! :)

    Cactus Wreath!


    Hello everyone! How are you? :)

    I made this card for Lawnscaping Challenge Color Scheme where we are allowed to use Black, Purple and a color of our choice. I chose the shades of purple, black and I thought the 'red' would pop against these colors! I'm so happy with this color combination. :)


    I took a white card stock and drew a circle. Next I stamped all the images on a white card stock from Stuck on you stamp set in Electric Neon Purple ink from Tsukineko, Seedless Preserves, Archival Jet Black ink and Carnation Red inks. 


    Next I fussy cut all the images and adhered them on the circle forming a Sting 'Wreath' with white glue. Stamped the sentiment with Archival Jet Black Ink and finally added tiny splatters of black ink and stickles to the images. :)


    And that's it and I hope you like! Thanks for visiting! :)
