Joy! Love! Peace! Believe! Christmas!

Couple of more Christmas cards to share with you all today. Can’t have enough of Christmas cards I guess. I need more and more everyday. These ones I made earlier this month using Simon Says Stamp Fun and Festive collection stamp sets.

Welcome back to my blog and hope you are enjoying my projects on my blog. I have couple of more Christmas cards in non traditional colours. Non traditional colours have always been my go to especially with Christmas cards. I think they bring a sweet surprise factor when the recipient opens the envelope. Anyway, here are the two cards for you.

On both the cards, I used the new Outline Snowflakes background stamp and the Christmas Wishes stamp set. They both are from Simon Says Stamp’s Fun and Festive collection.

On both the backgrounds, I used Spun Sugar distress inks. But added Salty Ocean on one panel while the other had Cracked Pistachio distress ink to bring out the outline snowflakes using emboss resist technique. I trimmed the panels and adhered on white card base to have a white border around the panel.

For the focal sentiment panel I silver heat embossed the sentiment from Christmas Wishes stamp set on a white stitched panel, matted the panel with silver glitter cardstock, wrapped the pink twine around the bottom to make a bow before adhered on the middle of the background panel using foam adhesive.

I embellished the card front using Simon’s Birthday Cake sequins. Simple and pleasing to the eye I think. Below are the photos of the two cards individually along with the closeups.

Happy Diwali!

The festival of lights is nearly upon us. Diwali is a major festival of India. Its called the festival of lights in North of India. In south of India, this festival is celebrated as Lord Krishna slays the demon Naraka on a special day of Chartudasi from the Hindu mythology. Either way, Diwali symbolised victory of light over darkness. It is a very special and significant festival.

Hello everyone, Welcome to my blog. I have my first Diwali card for this year. I have a few coming this week. All the products I used to make my card today comes from Mudra Craft Stamps. I will list all the supplies I used to make this card towards the end of this post. But first here is the card.

I used distress inks to sponge the background of the card front. The colours used are Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade, Carved Pumpkin and Candied Apple. Then I used Mudra’s Diya stencil to sponge Fossilised Amber and Ripe Persimmon and make a border on the bottom of the background. Then using the Crackers stencil to sponge Spiced Marmalade distress inks and then Nuvo Moonstone glimmer paste on top to add texture and sparkle to the fireworks.

The focal die is the new Diya die. This die has the solid Diya die as well as the decorative detail dies for both the lamp as well as the light. I sponged a scrap piece of white cardstock with Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserve distress inks. I die cut the solid diya using this sponged panel. The decorative detail die is die cut using gold glitter cardstock. I layered glued the decorative detail on the solid die cut and foam mounted on the left side of the card front.

The sentiment is from Crackers stamp set. I gold heat embossed this sentiment on the leftover piece of cardstock sponged with distress inks used to die cut the Diya. I trimmed the sentiment cardstock and adhered on the left side using foam adhesives. Finally a few gold stickles to finish off the card.

Rich colours are part of Indian tradition. Hence the choice of colours on my card. Hope you like my card and got inspired. Thanks very much for visiting my blog today.

Christmas Card Design #2

Last week I share my first design for my Christmas cards I will be mass producing this year. I came to a decision that I will use a few designs to make a set of 10 or 20 cards. That means I will have a variety of designs instead making a 200 cards using just one design.

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. This is my second design. All the products I used to make these cards are from Taylored Expressions. This post is photo heavy because I did change up the design a bit to make a set of 10 cards. I will also share couple of closeup photos of each card. Towards the ens of the post I will link all supplies I used to make these cards. Make your self a cuppa and enjoy.
