One layer cards!

Hello friends!
Hope you are all doing good!
I made a couple of OLC cards yesterday. I am not very confident in making One layer cards. But the moment I saw the challenge cue for "Simplylessismore" I decided to give it a try and made 2 cards. 

Here's my first card. 
It is made using Supplies from Craftyscrappers! 

I have used the mini Butterfly stencil and distressed it with rainbow colours. 
Stamped the sentiment with Versafine onyx black to complete my card!

For my second card, I have used the supplies from Mudra stamps. 

I used the floral stencil with distress inks to create the background and later stamped the sentiment with Versafine onyx black ink.

Buzzing by (Craftyscrappers)

I am back again to showcase the newly released Buzzing by to say hi stamp set by Craftscrappers.
I have a pictorial of three cards using this stamp set. 

P.s. A picture heavy post

The final look of my cards!

I began by stamping all these images from the stamp set on a watercolour paper using Archival ink. Coloured them using Zig markers and Aqua pen and fussy cut them all. 

For the first card, I took a 4"x4" white card. Masked and distressed it alternatively using green and blue distress inks.  Arranged the elements in place and stamped the sentiment and other details using Versafine ink. Adhered all the flowers using liquid adhesive. Using various green coloured distress inks, I created the grass effect in between the flowers. 

 Trimmed and mounted this panel on a side fold card base using foam adhesive. Lastly mounted the Bee using foam adhesive to give it a pop.

 Lastly, added glossy accents to the bee and the flowers. 

Final picture!

I used the hexagon shapes from the stamp set and created a pattern on a white 4"x4" white card.

 Stamped the crown shape and using liquid adhesive added glitter to it. Fussy cut and adhered this to the bee image. 

Stamped the sentiment on this panel. Trimmed and Mounted this panel on a 4x4 notecard using foam adhesive. 

Arranged the images and adhered them in different layers to create some interest. 

Lastly, added some enamel dots to complete my card. 

Final image!

I had few of the coloured images remaining, so I thought of making a bonus card!

I made a card using a ready-to-use shaker card pack.
I lightly traced the placement of the shaker windows on the card base and distressed that portion using distress inks. I adhered two bees and two flowers on the distressed parts using liquid adhesive. Mounted the foam layer over this, followed by the acetate and the top layer. Before adhering the top layer, I stamped the sentiment and other details using Versafine ink. After adhering this top layer, I added the bee using foam adhesive. LAslty, cover the bee with glossy accents to complete my card. 

That's all from my end! 
Hope you enjoyed my pictorial. Do leave some love in the comments below.

Bloom where you are planted (Craftyscrappers)

Hello friends!

Today I am at the Craftyscrappers blog showcasing some new releases from the month of March and a tutorial for the cards made using them. 
I have two cards using the new layered Create-a-flower (Rose) stencil.

To begin with, I took a white cardstock and coloured inks (Whichever available in my stash... you can see that I have clubbed the distress inks along with distress oxide) suitable for layering the flowers and the leaves. 

Once the layering was done, I fussy cut all the flowers and the leaves. 

 Next, I started assembling them to make the card. For the first card, I took three florals and few leaves. On a 4x6 side folding white card base, I adhered the first flower and a leaf directly onto it using liquid adhesive. 

Then I started layering the remaining elements using some foam adhesive.

Once the layering was done, I used the sentiment from the Bloom stamp set. 

Added a few sequins from my stash and lastly added some fine details using a fine black marker. 

Some final pictures


For my second card, I had just one flower and few leaves left. So I made a small 4"x4" notecard. On a white card, I repeatedly stamped the sentiment from the Damask stamp set using grey ink.  

 Next, I arranged the flower and the leaves on the card. Layered few of them with foam adhesive to create some dimension to the card. 

Lastly, added some fine details (Visible in close-ups) to the card using Nuvo drops. 

The final look of the card!

That's all from my end today!
Hope you like my cards, would love to hear from you!

Happy Easter

Hello friends!
I have one more Easter card here on my blog today. 
A unique, Egg-shaped shaker card!

Here's a look at the card!

To make this card,
I die-cut (using Itsy Bitsy Stitched oval die) an oval using a green coloured pattern paper from Lawn Fawn and a sheet of acetate.  I also die-cut two oval rings of white foam and one ring of green cardstock.  I layered the two foam rings, the green ring and the die-cut acetate by sandwiching the acetate in between the layers. 
Next, I added the sentiment and lots of colourful shaker elements to the pattern paper (I wanted to depict the Spring/Easter effect) and covered it with the rings with acetate. Next, I printed the bunny (a digital stamp from Craftin desert divas) and stamped the florals from Craftyscrappers, coloured with zig markers and fussy cut them. I also printed out some easter eggs from the internet, coloured with zig markers and fussy cut them too. Also, die-cut grass, using grass die from Lawn Fawn, from green coloured cardstocks. I assembled all the elements on the card, creating layers by sticking some of them directly on the card and some using foam adhesive. Lastly, added a tiny punched layered butterfly to the card and added fine details with a marker. 

Few close-ups!

Here's a short clip showing my card!
