Crealies - Birthday tag slider card

Hello Everyone,

I'm stopping by to share this colorful "Double sided tag slider card" using Crealies tag slider card dies.

To make this card, I die cut all the parts of the die set and then ink blended the inner layer of the tags & card front panel before putting together it in to the slider mechanism. You can check Mandy's video tutorial here on Crealies YouTube channel for the same where she has explained it so beautifully.

To decorate the front panel, I die cut lots of leaves in rainbow colors and adhered them. I added 2-3 leaves in the slider tags also to add interest and left the rest of the space for a personal message.

After that I stamped the sentiment on a white strip and glued it on the front panel using foam tape along with a die cutted butterfly on vellum. Added some silver stones on the butterfly to complete this card.

I hope you get inspired.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Kinda Cute by Patricia - It's your day!!!

Hello Everyone,

Here I'm stopping by to share my DT Post for Kinda Cute by Patricia. For my card I have used this cute digi set called Cute shaped animals and Birthday filler digital stamp set.

I really had fun making my first slimline card... he he he.. yes I'm so slow.  :)

I took 4 by 8 inches white card base as I'm not sure about standard slimline card size but I matched my card base with the slimline envelopes which I bought recently... :). I started by masking the edges with  half centimeter washi tape and distress inked the background using Distress oxides.

Meanwhile I colored this cute images and birthday fillers with alcohol markers, fussy cut it and arranged these cute critters on the card base.

Sugar Skull Love Card - Hedgehog Hollow September Subscription Box

Hello Everyone, I'm so excited to be back at The Hedgehog Hollow  blog with my another post using September month Subscription box . I'm really having fun playing with this wonderful box.

For today's post, I've made Sugar Skull love card... Yes...You heard it right.. Does it sounds creepy???... nah...I feel, all these elements which represents "Day of the Dead" festival like Sugar skull, their fun characters and the bright colors adds a fun and lots of interest to the love card. I really enjoyed educating myself about this Mexican festival.

To make this card, I started with white card stock and die cut out the Sugar Skull using skull dies. Then, I ink blended rest of the card stock with Distress Oxides. I have used these six Distress Oxide colors - Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Candid Apple for inking.

Once satisfied, I adhered this ink blended card panel to the card base with foam tape. After that I glued the die cut out skull also on the card base. I kept the Panel behind the skull white to highlight my focal images.

Then, I stamped these cute couple images from "Dia De Los Muertos" stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink . I colored these images using alcohol markers and fussy cut it. After that, I adhered these images to the card front panel with foam tape along with stamped sentiment on white strip. Finally added some gold sequins to complete the card.

To add some interest, I played with inside of the card too ;), I stenciled it very lightly using Big Rose Stencil from the kit and stamped the rest of the sentiment from “Day of the Dead Words” stamp set . I made a matching envelope too by simply stamping the images.

Galaxy Theme Interactive Card - MFT Stamps

Hello Everyone,

I'm stopping by to share my Galaxy theme interactive card for MFT  Card Design Superstar: Innovation Master category. 

I have used MFT BB Space Explorer stamp set to make this  galaxy card.

I did lots masking to make this card...All the images (except the astronaut image at front panel) are first stamped  and then after coloring these with alcohol markers I masked them and did distress inking using distress oxides to make the galaxy background.

Once satisfied with distress inking, I splattered these panel with water and then white acrylic paint. 

 Added heat embossed sentiment along with some star confetti to complete this fun card.

 I really enjoyed this fun card for my little girl who is big fan of galaxy and she is reason for choosing this theme.

Here is the small video to show the working mechanism...:)

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Crealies Star card using Heat Emboss Resist Technique

Hello Everyone,

I'm stopping by to share this "You're a STAR" galaxy theme card using Crealies Bullet Journaling square stamp set.  Yes, you can use this stamp set not only for journaling but for making cards too. There are so many possibilities. Here I'm sharing one idea using the "Emboss Resist Technique".

Over to my card..

I have a step by step photo tutorial too..

To start I took white cardstock and die cut a rectangle using Crealies Stitched rectangle dies.

After that, I stamped this rectangle using Bullet Journaling square stamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

Then, I took Crealies masking sheet which was equal in size with the stamped rectangle and  die cut out the star at the center of the masking sheet.

I masked the card stock with the star shaped masking sheet and distress inked the rest of the card stock.

Once satisfied, I removed the mask.

Then I covered the rectangle with the negative mask that is the rest of the part with masking sheet except the star.

Now, I ink blended the star also.

Our card panel is ready after removing the mask. I splattered it with white acrylic paint to add interest.

After that, I adhered this panel to a white note card. Added the die cut out sentiment using Alfies dies which I layered. 

Added the stamped sentiment by masking few words from two different stamp set ;)

Finally added some star embellishments to complete this card.

I hope you get inspired.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!

Friends make life BEARABLE - MFT Stamps

Hello Everyone,

Here is my second post of the day. I made this one layered card for MFT  Card Design Superstar: Coloring Virtuoso Category I really enjoyed creating this fun scene using no-line water coloring.

This is how I got my inspiration. Few days back, my little one came to me and shared that she is really missing  trampoline time with her friends (of course due to Pandemic). So to cheer her up .. I decided to make something to remember those beautiful days. :)

I have used MFT "Ewe are the best", BB Happy Hippos , BB Adorable Elephants and Birthday Bear stamp set for this card.

So this is the result, after spending almost 4 hours..I really love how it turned out. I hope you like it too.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
