Stretching Your Stamps

Hello everyone,

Today I have a fun and colorful project to inspire you all for the current Craftyscrappers Challenge.

Before I talk more about it,let me share a picture of it first.

Material used:
Craftyscrappers stamp(Celebrate Holi)
White card stock 
Distress Oxide Inks
Black Archival ink
YOU die from Stamplorations
Cup Sequins from my stash

Now let's talk about the technique used for the card and the tag.I have tried stretching my stamps in a very extraordinary way.The stamp set was designed for Holi festival but now as the festival is over I was confused how to make something out of it and that's where this technique of stretching the stamps clicked to me.

I have used the triangle geometric shape in the stamp set which was actually representing gulal(Holi Powdered color) on the stamp set to create my background first with Distress oxide inks in various colors.

After that I have used You die and made a diecut on the finished background.Took that diecut out and replaced it with same white cardstock diecuts thrice,lastly topped the original distress oxide inked  diecut.

The sentiment is from same stamp set,stamped with Black Archival ink.Lastly attached Cup sequins to adorn the card.Attaching more pics of the card and the tag.

I am linking this project to following challenges:

I feel the card and tag perfectly fits the challenge theme COLOUR 

I have incorporated colors inspired by the spring colors shown in the inspiration pic and I feel YOU gives me a lot of strength and faith in ppl is the inspiration pic

Masking Technique with beautiful Butterflies

Hello Everyone,

Today I have another technique card on my blog.With this card I just wanted to have lot of colors on my card as the theme.I chose butterfly stamp from Urban stamp and a sentiment from Penny black.Let me show you the card first and then we will proceed with the procedure.


I chose to work on white card stock and make it a single layered card.I have used Neon inks from HERO Arts.I stamped my first butterfly on the card stock and simultaneously created a mask on making sheet for the butterfly.

Using the same mask,I went on stamping one butterfly on partially over another without messing the look.That's where you can notice the butterflies are looking one top of another.

The technique is simple and quite old but I still love to use it as the results are beautiful.Lastly I stamped the sentiment with Black Archival Ink and added few cup sequins to the card from my stash.

Hope you enjoyed the card.I am linking the card to following challenges:

Happy Crafting!!

Take Green Card stock and fix the stencil on it with the help of any adhesive tapes.Start Distressing the pattern with green ink,I have used the stencil vertically. Move the stencil a little on its right after finishing the first distressing,start distressing again with Green ink.Move the stencil a little more on right and now distress with white pigment ink.Lastly move the stencil little bit left and cover the area with Gold Shimmer paste.My background pattern is ready.

I have stamped images on Craftyscrappers white premium Cardstock with the help of Archival ink.I colored them and then Fussy cut it.Lastly attach everything as shown with the help of double sided tape.

I have used the same rotating technique for this card as well.This time I kept the stencil(Geometrical patterns) horizontal and rotated 90 degrees' and distressed with different ink.On one side of the card I attached Washi tape.

Then I took white card stock, With shimmer paste I made the design on it and the fussy cut it after it dried.Pictures will make the procedure more clear

Lastly I attached everything with double sided tape and embellished with some pollens and leaves from my stash.I have also used Enamel accents to make cute enamel dots.Since March month also relates to Exams for all kids so I wanted to send best wishes to all kids with this lovely colorful card.Sharing few more pictures of the card
