One stamp set- 3 cards (using MFT ‘Double the fun’ stamp set)

Hi everyone!

I shared these cards on Crafty Meraki blog a couple of weeks ago. Thought I would share them here too.

For the post, I used a stamp set from MFT called ‘Double the fun’. It has adorable images and I absolutely love the set!

Here is a picture of all the cards together-

You will see that I used very limited supplies.
For my first card, I started by cutting a piece of watercolor cardstock in the size of 3.25″×8.25″. I wanted to create three separate scenes ona slimline card.
I stamped the images with Antique Linen Distress Ink and coloured the images with my Daniel Smith watercolors.
I added light wash of watercolor around the images.

I finally added an embossed sentiment on strips of Kraft cardstock.

Adhered the watercolored panel on Kraft card base measuring 3.5″×8.5″.

For my second card, I started by sketching an asymmetric shape with a pencil lightly as a guide on a piece of watercolor cardstock measuring 4″x5.25″.

I stamped the images in Antique Linen Distress Ink and colored them using Daniel Smith watercolors.

I adhered the coloured panel on top folding A2 size grey coloured card base.

I made the last card in a collage style. Here it is…

I started my trimming a piece of watercolor cardstock to 4″×5.25″. I drew pencil lines as guides and used a masking tape to separate sections for colouring .

I coloured each section and made sure that it was dry before proceeding to the next.

I also sketched a couple of trees and painted them

Once dry, I carefully removed the masking tape and adhered the coloured panel on top folding A2 size card base.

Supplies used-

1. MFT ‘Double the fun’ stamp set

2. Antique Linen Distress Ink

3. Arches Cold pressed watercolor paper 140 lb.

4.Daniel Smith watercolors.

I hope you like the cards..

Stay safe. Take care…

One stamp set – three cards with Yappy Happy Mail

Hello everyone!

Here is a happy announcement…. I joined Crafty Meraki DT and my first post for them went live a couple of days ago. Just wanted to share what I made here.
Thank you so much for the amazing opportunity, Bindu!

Crafty Meraki store is based in the US and loaded with products from amazing brands including newly released products from leading brands. Check them out now!

I chose Heffy Doodle products to play with for my first post. I will link to the products I used at the end of the post.
Here is the card set I made-

For the first card, I created a grey frame using Imperial stitched rectangle dies. For this purpose, I chose the largest and the third largest rectangle dies. I inked the card base with Distress inks.

I also die cut a border using Stitched Slopey Joes border dies. I coloured the images from Yappy Happy mail stamp set using copic markers, cut them out using coordinating dies and assembled the card.
Note- The interesting thing about coordinating dies for this stamp set is that three of the dies make slots in your stamped images that enable us to tuck in tiny stamped images. (The two mail boxes and the paper plane) How fun is that!

My next card features Imperial stitched rectangle dies and Yappy Happy mail stamp set.

I sponged Distress Oxides on grey stitched rectangle panel, adhered the images and stamped the sentiments. I then adhered the finished panel on a white card base.

For my final card, I used Imperial stitched rectangle dies, Yappy Happy Mail stamp set and First Snow stencil.

I cut a stitched rectangle panel from grey cardstock and put it aside. I cut out a white panel measuring 4″×5.25″ and sponged Distress Oxide inks using First Snow stencil very lightly. I sponged blue ink for the sky snd assembled the card.

Here is the list of products I used for today’s card set.
1. Yappy Happy Mail and Coordinating dies.
2. Imperial stitched rectangle dies
3. Stitched Slopey Joes border dies
4. First snow stencil
5. Distress Oxides ( I used Peeled paint and Faded Jeans)
6. Distress Inks ( I used Faded Jeans, Mermaid lagoon, Peeled paint and Forest moss)
7. Blending brushes
I hope you like the cards I made today. See you soon.
Hugs…

I first stamped the image on watercolor cardstock using ‘Hot fudge’ Hybrid ink and watercoloured the image using Daniel Smith paints. I added a pattern on her dress…because it was so much fun! I used the coordinating die to cut out the cute girl. I did some stencilling on the card base for the horizontal strips in the sketch.

I adhered the image on a rounded rectangle die cut and adhered the panel on the card base.

I hope you like the card and will take sone time to play along.

It is Wednesday and it means weekly Sketch Challenge on MFT blog.

Here is today’s sketch- MFTWSC476

Here is my card

This is a quite literal interpretation of the sketch. But I have a tiny, sweet twist.. want to see?

The rectangle piece with the confetti background and the sentiment is actually a tiny card that opens up to show these three tiny pop up elements inside the card.

Isn’t fun?!

I hope you find time to join this week’s challenge.

MFT and Friends- February release.

Hi everyone!

Sindhu here. I hope everyone is doing good. I know I haven’t blogged for over an year. To be honest, I hadn’t made many cards last year.

However, I’m so thrilled to be writing this post because I’m part of ‘MFT and Friends’ feature for their February release. Yay!! Still doing my happy dance!

This release is full of awesome products and if you are looking to add some birthday themed products, I strongly recommend that you check this release. There are SO many fantastic stamps and dies. I made a bunch of cards using them to share with you today.

The first card was made using the stamp set designed by Stacey Yacula. It is called ‘Sweet shop’. It is cuteness overload and I am not able to get over it!

Here is my card-

Here are some more close up shots of the card-

I added some woodgrain details on the table legs.

Here are more cards that I made using the products from the new release.

The next card features the Birdie Brown set ‘Birthday Buds’.

To make this card, I stamped the images directly onto the watercolor cardstock and painted the images using Daniel Smith watercolours. I added a balloon for the cute little piggie to hold. I adhered the coloured panel on the Neenah Desert Storm cardstock base.

Some more images of the card

My next card features ‘Hydrangeas in bloom’ stamp set. This stamp set is SO beautiful.. SO delicate, it was worth all the time I spent colouring the gorgeous images.

I used Daniel Smith watercolours to colour on Arches Cold pressed watercolor paper.

I used blues and purples to colour the flowers. I layered the coloured panel on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock on which I scored horizontal lines for extra interest. I kept the rest of the card pretty neutral as I wanted the focus to be on the blooms.

More pictures..

The last card features two stamp sets- ‘Birthday Buds’ and ‘Birthdays take the cake’.

I had so much fun colouring the adorable images in copics. Also, how beautiful is the font of that sentinent! I also used Grassy Hills Die- namics and Inside and out Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX Die-namics.

I hope you like the cards I made for the release…

Head over to the MFT blog for loads of inspiration and links to the store.

Thank you for visiting me today. Hope to see you soon again. 🙂

MFT and friends- January release

Hello everyone!

I’m beyond thrilled and still can’t believe that this actually happened to me! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I had received a mail from the awesome Stephanie Klauck asking me if I would be interested in guest designing for (My Favorite Things) MFT. Well, so here I am showcasing their absolutely fantastic January new release.

Stephanie and MFT team, I can’t thank you enough for this fantastic opportunity! It is a dream come true for this girl!

I made three cards using several products from their newest release.

Here is the first…

I started by stamping and colouring the images with Copics. On this card, I used images from BB Cute Chemists and Rainbows and Unicorns stamp sets. The cloud die cuts are from the Once Upon a Rainbow Die-namics.

How cute is the fairy?!

I also used the English brick stencil in the background. I kept the design very simple as I wanted the images to stand out. I also felt it would be fun combining science and a little bit of magic. 😉 I combined sentiments from the two stamp sets to make my own sentiment.

Here is the next card.

On this card, I used images from BB Cute Chemists, Scattered hearts background cling stamp. I also used the English brick stencil in the background. Just like the first card, I kept the card design very simple.

Here is the last card..

I used the Tweethearts stamp set, Hearts Entwined Die-namics and Sweet stack 6×6 paper pad. I heat embossed the sentiment on a grey colour cardstock and added twine. I also used the wpnky stitched rectangle Die-namics.

I hope you like the cards I made. Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Hugs..

Gift wrap ensemble for Neat and Tangled throwdown challenge.

Hello everyone!

Merry Christmas to you all! I hope you are having a great time with family and friends.

I have a Gift Wrap Ensemble to share with you that I made for theNeat and Tangled Throwdown challenge.

I used 4 stamp sets and 2 die sets to wrap the presents. I will link to the products at the end of the post.

Here is what I made

I used patterned paper to gift wrap them all. I wrapped them in four styles including a gift bag, pillow box and a flap for the packed cookies.

I started by stamping and colouring the images. I fussy cut them all out. I loved using twine to decorate the packages. I used several stamps and dies to make the tags..

Here are some individual pictures of wrapped packages.

To make the pillow box, I used a free printable template. It measures almost 4″x6″.

To used scalloped dies to cut out the edge of the gift bag. I used the same doe to make the flap of the cookie package. I absolutely love those dies!

I hope you like what I made. Here are the products I used..

Except the paper, all the products are from Neat and Tangled.

Thanks so much

Trinity Stamps- 2018 winter release blog hop.

Hello everyone!

I’m so excited about the new Trinity Stamps release! To celebrate the awesome new products, we are blog hopping today. 🙂

You should have come from Kimberly’s blog. If not, you can start over at Trinity Stamps blog.

I made this card using the new ‘Joyeux Noel‘ stamp set. It has this beautiful image of a deer looking up at the heavens and a few sentiments. I just can’t get over it.

I started by colouring the images and fussy cutting them out. I used Copic markers for the purpose. (E35, E33, E53 for the deer, R24, BG72 for the scarf, YG97, YG95, YG93 for the trees).

Then, from a piece of white cardstock, I cut out snowy slopes by hand and kept them aside. On a piece of 3.75″×5″ cardstock, I sponged Distress Inks (Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot) for the night sky.

I assembled the card.

To add more interest to the card, I finished it by adding ‘snow’ on it usinh a snow pen from my stash. I really like how it looks on the deer antlers. 🙂

I’m the last one on the hop. If you landed here first, you can start at Trinity Stamps blog.
