No line water colouring

Hello there,

I am back with another card project today. I have beautiful water colour card where I tried no line water colouring using stencils. The stencil I used today is from Craftyscrappers – Peony flowers. I only used the flower from the stencil and not the leaves. 

I used water colour paper from Itsy Bitsy. They have released this new paper which is excellent for water colouring. The colours do not bleed nor the paper wraps. This is something I have been trying to get my hands on for a long time and finally got an excellent set of water colour papers. 

For water colouring, I used Zig clean colour real brush. They are my favourite set of water colour brush. Its so easy to use and fun to make projects. 

Materials used:

1. Stencil – Peony flowers

2. Zig markers

3. Distress ink

4. Water colour paper

5. Black ink  – for sentiment

6. Stamp – Sending sunshine (only for sentiment)

There is not much technique or ways to make this card. Its just simple watercolouring using stencils. This is something I wanted to try for a long time. I am not great at water colouring but my fellow crafters have encouraged me to try something new and have always been encouragaing. I love using some gem stones in my card. I feel they add a little sparkle to the cards. 

I have some close ups below:

Non traditional Holi cards

Hello everyone,

Today, I have inspiration posts for Holi as a part of DT Craftyscrappers. I have some non-traditional colourful cards for Holi. I have used Happy Holi stamp set to make these cards. Holi is a widely celebrated festival in North India. It is also called as ‘Festival of colours’ or ‘festival of love’ where it signifies the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships. 

I have 4 cards using different backgrounds and one mixed media gift tag. For the background, I have used inks, shimmer pastes and papers. 

Materials used:

1. Craftyscrappers 

    a. Stamp – Happy holiFluttering butterflies

    b. Stencil – Rangoli, Splash

    c. Shimmer paste – Jingle bellsChristmas treeSilent nightPinewood

    d. Fun foil – Glitzy Gold

     e. Granular paste

2. Quilling strips (I have used all colours from my stash)

3. Altenew inks

    a. Cool summer night mini inks

    b. Coral berry

    c. Glacier caves set

    d. Tropical forest set

    e. Jet black

4. Sponge daubers

5. Vellum

6. Hot gun

7. Sequins

8. Lace

9. Twine

10. Colour pencil – Polychromos

11. MDF butterflies

BACKGROUND CARDS

This section, I have focused on showing different background to make these cards. I have 4 different background using inks, paper and stencils..

Let get started with the first one….

1. USING SPONGE DAUBERS

1. This is a tri-colour background. I have used 3 different colours here along with sponge daubers. 

2. I just dabbed the inks on the card stock, light and darker colours.

3. These are dye inks hence they dry up quickly. 

4. I made the background very colourful suitable for the theme. 

5. I felt something was missing and hence added some fun foil – gold on one side of the card.

6. To finish the card, I added sentiment and liquid pearls. 

2. USING MINI INK CUBE

1. This is a one layer card and have used heavy base cardstock.

2. I used mini ink pads here for this background.

3. I simply just pressed the ink pad on the card stock. I started from light to dark.

4. I kept pressing theme down until I had a portion of the card base covered and ready.

5. Any mini ink cube pad will work here for this background. 

6. I finished the card by adding sentiment. 

3. USING QUILLING STRIPS

1. This is a rainbow background using quilling strips. Left over pieces of cardstock will also work here for this background. 

2. To add these strips to the card base, I used double sided adhesive.

3. I started with violet shades and ended with the pink. 

4. I trimmed down the excess strips.

5. I added a vellum belly band to the base. I stamped the sentiment and added it to the belly band.

6. I added this piece to a top fold note card. 

4. STENCILED BACKGROUND

1. This is my last background card for this post.

2. I have done stenciling using shimmer paste. This is my favourite way of using stencils in cardmaking. Stencil I used here is ‘Rangoli’.

3. I let the paste dry (air dry). This time, I avoided using hot gun. 

4. Once its dry, I added a vellum belly band.

5. For the image, I used a butterfly and coloured it with rainbow colours. 

6. I stamped the sentiment holi on the vellum and let it dry

7. To finish the card, I added sequins and pearls. 

 

MIXED MEDIA GIFT TAG


For the last part of this post, I made a tag using shimmer pastes and some mdf embellishments. 

1. For this tag, I first added some shimmer paste using ‘Splash’ stencil and let it air dry

2. While it was air drying, I made a base to add my butterfly image using twine. 

3. Once the base was dry, I addded granular paste and heat set it.

4. Next, I sprayed little distress ink and let it dry. 

5. I added the butterfly and the sentiment.

6. To finish the tag, I added some MDF embellishments and a twine. 

I hope this post has inspired many here

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more.

Make a sketch card

Hello everyone,

Today, I am sharing a card I made using stamps from Craftyscrappers and a sketch I made as a guide for the card. 

Something about card sketches (this is what I know). Sketches helps a card maker/crafter in creating a project with ease. Sometimes we get confused or don’t know how to assemble certain stamps and turn them into cards. The same applies in using pattern papers too. 

For today’s card, I made this sketch. A lot of sketches are available online and I suggest to check them out and try making cards/layout using them as a guide. 

Sketch

CARD

1. For this card, I used Magnificent Champaka for the image. This stamp has a bunch and single flowers. I used the single flowers for this card. 

2. I coloured the stamped image,coloured, fuzzy cut and kept it aside.

3. I die cut squares from white glitter foam. 

4. I used a pattern paper for the other side of the sketch. 

5. Using the sketch as a guide, I assembled all the pieces together. 

6. I fuzzy cut the sentiment and pasted it on the pattern paper.

7. To finish the card, I added a small pearl to the center of the flower.
