Hello Everyone,

Its been long since I have written a post., so here I am sharing my card using MFT Friends Forever Stamp and Die Set.

           

The ready card measures 8 3/4″ X 5″. An unusual size, but I had to increase the size for proper placement of the flop circles.

Here is the rough draft I drew, before proceeding with the card.

 

I measured and found the diameter of the flop circle to be 2 3/4″, the length of the card was calculated by adding 1/4″+ 2 3/4″ + 2 3/4″ + 2 3/4″ + 1/4″ = 8 3/4″

Then I took two sheets of Neenah Solar White Cardstock measuring 8 3/4″ X 7 1/2″ and 8 3/4″ X 7″.

I started creating the base of the card by scoring the first sheet at 1 1/2″ , 3″, 5 1/2″ and then 7″. Please note a small section of 1/2″ will be left. We will use this to attach the second sheet. Now the second sheet to be scored at 2 1/2″ and 4″.

After scoring, I stuck both the sheets together to form the base of the card. I then went on to place the Dienamics Flop Card – Circle die on the base to create the flop elements. Here is a rough sketch of the how I placed the die.

I then matted the base with some pattern papers keeping in mind the MFT Color Challenge

I have also used Die-namics Inside & Out Stitched STAX – Circle dies.

I had colored my images using Copic Sketch Markers and then stuck the same using some foam tape to give extra dimensions. The markers I have used are:

Bear : E47, E44, E43, E41

Dog: C5, C3, C1, C0

In the end I stamped sentiments from the same set and also one from  MFT Because You stamp set.

Hope you all like my card, please do share your views in the comments below.

Happy Crafting

Hello again,

I know I just wrote a post yesterday, I am really excited to share this one. I have used MFT Monster Love stamp with coordinating die set and MFT Die-namics Diagonal Sentiment Strip Cover-up Die.

I wanted to use this stamp and die set forever…

1

The only challenge for me while I was making this card was to get crisp/clear stamped images. As these stamps are solid clear stamps, I took some time to prep them.

This particular video by Joanna Munster (Inspired by Stamping : https://joannamunster.com) I always refer to…

 

Hope this post could be of some help…

Happy Crafting…

Hello Crafters,

I know its been long since I wrote a blog post. Actually I made these cards a month back, but did not have the time to write a post. So here I am now. I have made background of these cards using Ken Oliver Crafts Color Burst Pigment Powders. Believe me this product is amazing… no two backgrounds can be identical.

2

Here is the video I referred to for learning how to use Color Burst and it was a cake walk. I loved the way the pigments moved and merged. I used Color Burst Brights set and Canson XL Watercolor Paper for preparing the background of my cards.

 

I have used MFT Dienamics Peek-a-Boo Polka Dots die to cut the prepared backgrounds.

After preparing the background, I used MFT Dienamics Stitched Rectangle Frames for cutting the two frames from two different shades of pink card stocks.

I then took my plain white card base, measured it (leaving the width of the pink frame) and covered it fully with Stick it adhesive sheet and stuck the Polka dotted die-cut on it. I used the following video by Jennifer McGuire as an inspiration. I also used Nuvo Pure Sheen Glitter Diamond to finish the base of my card.

Once the base was completed, I heat embossed the sentiment on vellum. For this I used Ranger Superfine White Embossing powder and MFT Becuase You stamp.

Hello Crafters, Finally I got some time to craft again. So here I am sharing two cards using Heartfelt Creations Blushing Rose Collection (October 2016 Release). 6 I also used WeR Memory Keepers Next Level embossing folder Wave which comes in a set of two. Both the designs are lovely. I always wanted to use them and see the results and I must say I am impressed. I colored the images using Zig Markers and Niji water brushes after stamping the images with Versafine Pigment Ink Pad Onyx Black. After coloring the images, I have used the coordinating dies which came in the collection and it was very easy to cut the intricate designs. On one of the cards I have fussy cut a rose and given dimension using some Stick it Double sided 3D Foam Dots.

Hope you all like the cards and please do leave your valuable feedback and comments.

Hello Friends,

I am here with my latest cards which I made using September release of Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose Collection, and I must say this collection is really a beautiful. I loved creating roses with them.

15

This time I have tried to click pictures step wise. Hope I am able to explain the process…

  1. First I cut the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose Collection pattern paper for matting the card base and distressed the edges using Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink.

1

2. After creating the base, used Heartfelt Creations Fleur Borders and Pockets to cut a die-cut from a white card-stock.

2

3. I stamped the leaves using the Archival Coffee Ink on some green card stock. Here I used the Classic Rose Vines Stamp and then cut the same with the Classic Rose Vines dies. I also embossed the die-cuts with the help of Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool Kit.

4. After finishing off the leaves and vines, I stamped the roses on white card stock using Classic Rose Stamp set and Archival Ink Tea Rose (I just love this color). After stamping I ran the images through my Big shot and used the Classic Rose coordinating dies for cutting the petals. Once the petals were cut I used Archival Tea Rose ink and sponge daubers to color them on both the sides. I also used Archival Vermillion Ink to give a little shading on the edges.

5. After coloring the petals, I made roses. In the picture I have shown the assembled roses. For the left one I have used petals in three sizes, two of small, one of medium and two large petals. For the right rose I have used all five petals in same size. Hope, I have been able to show the difference. May be someday I will make a video showing the process I used for assembling these. I duly apologise for not putting step by step this time.

6. I also used some Diamond Dust to add sparkle to my roses and to finish them off.

This is the final card after putting all the elements together. I made another card, just changed the colors and added an additional layer of maroon card-stock. In this one I also used Nuvo drops on the die-cut and added half cut pearls to finish off the card.

Hello Friends,dsc_0182-copy

Here I am with my second post for the blog. For last 2-3 years due to time constraint I could not craft, but here I am back on track and really enjoying myself to the fullest.

Now, let me tell you a little bit about this card I made. I have used Altenew Remember This stamp set. The reason…. somehow I was not able to find cards made using this stamp (silly me, maybe I did not look enough).

Besides the above stamp set, for this 2 layered card, I have used Neneeh Solar White cardstock for all the stamping and the base, Altenew Rest Sunset ink cube set, for creating the plaid red background MFT Triple Stripe Background stamp and Memento Tuxedo Black ink for all the black outline stamping.

Using the masking technique first I stamped the two flowers followed by the leaves and buds. I had cut 5 masks, 2 for the flowers and 3 for the leaves for creating this card.

Above all I used my MISTI for layering the Altenew stamps and also for stamping the perfect plaid background; I used the same Altenew ink for the plaid which I had used in the flowers so that it matched the centre focal point.

I completed this card by adding some sequins and water droplets which I created using the Ranger Glossy Accents.

I did use the Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue for sticking all the elements on my card.

Hope you all like this card. I am still learning to write a tutorial, maybe next time I will do a better job. Till then Happy Crafting!!!

Thank you,

Meetu

Hello Crafters,

This is my first post on Krafters Cart Inspiration and Challenge Blog. I actually started this business of mine approximately 5 years back, when I first imported the Sospeso Trasparente supplies in India.

Sospeso Trasparente is a 3D Volume Decoupage craft invented and patented by Italian artist Monica Allegro. It basically involves heating and shaping of printed plastic/acetate sheets into three dimensional flowers. These sheets come in different designs including shells, leaves, butterflies and flowers.

Today I will share two videos showing the basic technique for making these flowers. This video has been made by a lovely lady from Australia Kristyn Mcinnes.

 

I am also sharing some projects made by my sister Neha and me using the Sospeso Trasparente technique.
