3 different style cards using one stamp only

Hello, everyone!
A quick post today!

I made 3 different cards using one stamp only.

First one is the classic combo of black, white and gold and I love the result, so beautiful!

I have used white CS for my card base and die cut one more layer with stitched rectangular. Then I stamped some different sizes Doodly circles to create my blooms along with leaves at the top edge, overlapping them using clear embossing ink. And then heat embossed them. Some of the circles I heat embossed twice for more shine and classy look. Now I started to watercolored the BG at the top, kept it darker first and then faded wash look near the edges of the blooms and added some splatters too before placing the sentiment!

Then I mounted it onto my card base along with zig-zag striped and gold glitter washi tape at the bottom. The sentiment is a die cut out of a golden sheet. And placed some sequins for more interest and textures!

Supplies used:
Cardstocks: Heavy white CS 300GSM
Dies: Rectangles from Tattered Lace: Double stitched dies from Peek-a-boo Designs
Stamp: Doodly blooms from Craftyscrappers
Distress Ink: Black Soot
Wow embossing powder: Primary Ebony
Washi tapes from my stash
Sequins: Gold from Mudra and black from Craft Medley
Clear embossing pad, heat tool and pop dots from Itsy Bitsy

Would love to enter this card into these following challenges: flowers, stripe, stitching

The second project

It's fun to Caseing someone! Love the inspiration by very talented Designer Joy Taylor, so gorgeous and very much impressed by the colours, design, toned BG, dazzling sequins! Here is my take on the challenge!

First of all, I created my own striped cover panel. I stretched my spellbinder die to create this panel😉
Then on a watercolored sheet, I stamp some solid circles and leaves using the ink smooshing technique in different Altenew dye inks and stamped some Doodly circles and leaves on them. Fussy cut them. Now I masked my card panel from all 4 edges and using the same Red Sunset ink set I applied the inks using a blender tool and added some water splatters.

I mounted my striped panel on my card base using pop dots. And adhered my blooms on this panel. For the sentiment, I used leftover scrap (which I used as a masked strip), I cut it and stamp the sentiment using clear embossing ink and heat embossed it. Now adhered it to my striped panel. To dazzle my card I embellished it with my clear sequins.

Supplies used:
Cardstocks: Heavy white CS 300GSM, watercolored CS
Stamp: Doodly blooms from Craftyscrappers
Die: Shapeabilites Bauble Blossoms two from Itsy Bitsy
Inks: Red Sunset and Green Fields 4 cubes of Altenew
Sequins: 2mm clear sequins from Teaching aids and 8mm from Craft Medley
Wow Embossing Powder: Metallic Platinum from Itsy Bitsy

Would love to enter this card into the following challenges:

The third project

For the last one, I die cut a stitched panel out of Bielo white CS. Using ink smooshing technique I pressed my panel from the bottom side and lift it carefully. Then I stamped the Doodly circles in clear embossing ink using my MISTI,  heat embossed the images using opaque bright white powder. Now I wet my images with water and using distress inks I coloured them. Added some splatters too.
Then I die cut a black panel to create my design. Stamp the sentiment using my Misti and I tied this black panel with a twine and a cute button. Adhered this bottom panel on my card base which is already dry embossed using double stitched rectangle die!  Now adhered the main panel at the focal point and added one more strip out of black CS and embellished it with few sequins.

Supplies used:
Cardstocks: Heavy white CS 300gsm, Bielo White CS, Black Textured CS
Stamp: Doodly blooms from Craftyscrappers
Dies: Rectangles from Tattered Lace and Double stitched rectangles from Peek-a-boo Designs
Dye Inks: Distress inks- mowed lawn, twisted citron, fossilized amber, Picked Raspberry
Pigment Ink: Frost White from Color box
Wow embossing powder: Opaque bright white
Sequins: Clear and black sequins
Twine: Double colour and a button from my stash

She is Beautiful!

Hello, friends!
Hope all of you are enjoying your weekend!

Today, I am representing a very delicate card in the shades of grey, hope you all like this creation! I title this creation-"She is Beautiful".

She is loving, beautiful, special, unique in every way. A MOTHER is she who can take the place of all others, but whose place no one else can take!!!

Firstly, I made my own embellishments, from handmade flowers to mold ornaments, the small flowers with a pearl from Prima. I applied on all MDF cutouts gesso, then grey Moda color and burnish them using Haematite Inka Gold. You can see them clearly in close-up pics!

Totally fell in love with this color combo, so unique, Added lots of layers of paper, borders and little script stamping. The sentiment is Tim Holtz Chitchat stickers!

 Then I garnish the whole creation with loads of tiny granules, very tiny white thermocol balls, white beads, rhinestones, flourishes and some splatters too.

Floral fusion with black magic!

Hello everyone!
Happy Wednesday!
                                    The temperature is little down at Delhi! So it's good to be playing again in my craft room.
This time I came up an idea for my next CAS creation with the Chalkboard Technique. I have owned the floral stamp set from Mudra and I knew this will shine and perfect for this technique!

The most challenging part of this card is Patience. You need patience while playing with white pigment ink! 😊

So here is the process how to do:
Firstly, I die cut the snippet of black card stock and stamped the floral images with white pigment ink. Working with a dark base to be able to make a brighter image, luckily I have a frosty white pigment ink from color box :D. Let the image dry really well or hit it with your heat gun.
Grab your colored pencils and start coloring on the top of white pigment ink. It works perfectly. I colored all the leaves first as shown in the pic.

Now, I colored all the floral images.

Then I embossed my card base in parrot green color and hand cut it. For the sentiment, I applied the same technique, and after stamping the sentiment when it was wet I applied Perfect metallic pearls.

Here is the final pic and for made it more shine I applied some white gel pen and liquid pearls dot too!

I tried this technique the first time and really enjoyed it!!!
What do you guys think???

P.S.: Forgot to mention I stamped these florals and sentiment using my favourite Misti, silly me!

Best Mom in this World!

                                                                                    "Happy Mother's Day to everyone!"😊
Hello, craftypeeps!

                             Today is the day when Mother's Day celebrated all over the World! All of us would agree that mothers deserve more than just a day dedicated to them. We often forget to appreciate our mum for their sacrifice and love. Being a mother is hands down the most demanding job in the world and they do it so selflessly without never complaining. While we can never repay our mothers for their love and devotion, we can at least devote all our time to them on Mother's Day.

There is a famous quote:
     "Mama is my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love." - STEVIE WONDER

How to do:

I started with my white card base. Firstly I took my MDF chippie and cut the design as per my requirement. Then I created my own BG using that chippie. I applied clear embossing ink and stamped the design. Heat embossed it with Metallic Gold rich pale, Love the desired look and then heat embossed the same chippie using same embossing powder.
Then using Tropical gelato I made my own spray in a sprayer and randomly apply the spray.

Then I randomly tore the pattern papers and adhered them on my card base with lace underneath. I distressed the edges of the lace too. Applied some grunge stamp with DI and some script stamping in DI here and there to create my composition more interesting.

Then I made my own handmade flower using Tattered florals die, create the textures using groove golf tools, here is the link how to use them-, must have:) distressed my flower, embossed it.

After embellishing it look like so pretty! 

After that, on the snippet of vellum paper, I stamped some floral images from hibiscus set and heat embossed them in two different embossing powders.  Applied some chalk kit on the back side of yellow one, fussy cut them all. Then I stamped some leaf images on the snippets of white CS in distress ink, colour them with a very soft look. some are hand cut and some are die cut. Then die cut some flourishes, heat embossed them in metallic gold. Die cut a die from Californian collection out of a designer golden colour sheet.

On a torn vellum sheet I stamp the sentiment and heat embossed it. Now created my composition and embellished it with some more flowers and sparkle dots!

Here is the matching inside:

One more final look

Hope you all enjoyed this beautiful creation!
