Hello๐Ÿ˜Š I hope you are having a lovely day! Today's card features one of my favorite stamp sets - BB Mermaizing from MFT stamps. This stamp set has so many sweet little images! This card is also my first card with an underwater scene๐Ÿ˜‰ To start I stamped, colored and cut all of my images. I then used my white gel pen to add details to all the images. Next I cut a piece of white cardstock and using Blue Archival Ink and a blender brush, I ink blended my background. Using a paint brush and white paint, I added some paint splatters. I then used foam tape and plain double sided tape to adhere all the images to the background. Finally I adhered the main piece to my card base. I hope you love this card as much as I do!

Quick and Simple Scene Card

Hi there๐Ÿ˜Š I hope you are having a wonderful day! I wanted to share this super fun card, with a little bit of a scenery! To start I colored my image using watercolors and color pencils, following which I fussy cut my little critters. I then took a piece of white cardstock and cut a mask to use for the snow. Using some blue Archival ink and blending brushes I blended two shades of blue ink while keeping the snowy mask stuck to my card base. I then added some very faint lines to the snow using watercolors, to create some extra dimension. Next I matted my white piece of cardstock on dark blue cardstock and again on white cardstock. Finally I added stitched lines and white paint splatters to finish the card! I hope you liked it๐Ÿฅฐ. Have a wonderful day! Cheers  Anisha๐Ÿค—

Creating your own pet animals out of paper!

Image
Hello There  I hope you are having a good day!๐Ÿ˜‡ Today's project is yet another different project from what I usually undertake, but I enjoy pushing my crafty boundaries once in a while.๐Ÿ˜‚ Here are some of the pictures of the project To start I used newspaper to make my base. I made two balls one larger than the other and used it for the head and body of my little penguin. I stuck the head and body together using masking tape. I then tore some strips of newspaper and using a mixture of glue and water I began adding layers to my body. I added the layers in such a way so that the body looked more fuller and all the gaps and uneven surface could be covered up. I also made the beak in the same manner. Then I let it dry for a day or two. To make it a bit more fun, I used different patterns of decoupage paper to decoupage my little penguin. And that's it !

Upcycling and Redesigning

Hello There ๐Ÿค— I hope you are having a great day!! Today's project is different from what I usually undertake, but it's fun to try something different once in a while!๐Ÿ˜ Here are some of the pictures of the project To give you a better idea, here is a picture of the insides of the decor piece. So now that you have idea of what this home decor piece looks like, let's get started on how I put it together and what I used. In the true spirit of this Challenge I wanted to use something that really would have gone into the trash can, if it wasn't upcycled. I had a few sheets of cardboard, that came along with the bedsheets that I bought recently. The first step was to cut the all the hexagon pieces, to actually put the box together. I drew a template and cut all the pieces. Next I began the assembly, I used masking tape to stick all the pieces together. This was definitely the most time consuming part because each piece had to a

Fun Christmas Scene Card

Hello ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope you are having a lovely day! Here's the card we are making today. Today's card also features my first attempt at using alcohol markers ๐Ÿ˜‚. To start I stamped all images, colored them with alcohol markers and then fussy cut them. Next I worked on my background. I used two different shades of blue Archival ink and a blender brush to create my background. For the layers of the snow, I handcut three different layers of snow and then using a grey marker I went along the edges of the snow to make sure each layer could be seen clearly. I then adhered the layers over my background piece using foam adhesive. Finally I added all my stamped elements. To bring the whole card together I added some white paint splatter so that it looked like falling snow. That's it for today's card. Find me on  Instagram : @anishascraftstudio Have a lovely day!

Floral Christmas Card with a Twist

Image
Hello there ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope you are having a lovely day! This year has been such a whirlwind, many of us haven't got the opportunity to meet our loved ones, and sometimes all we can do is send an " I love you " and a card that feels like a warm hug. So this year for some o my Christmas cards, I used different sentiment stamps to make the cards more personal and closer to the heart.❤ For this card I started by stamping the Mudra Mogra stamp multiple times on watercolor paper and then added gold embossing powder and heat set it. I then watercolored my flowers using crimson red and viridian hue watercolors. I then adhered my watercolor piece onto green cardstock using foam adhesive. Finally I stamped my sentiment and then heat embossed. I added a green mat to the sentiment strip. To finish of the card I added white paint in the form of a splatter using a brush. That's it for today's card. I hope you liked it! Find me on  Instagram : @anishascraftstudio Taking p

Hello! I hope you are having a lovely day! In today's card I used a number of stamp sets to create Christmas themed cards.

Floral Christmas Card

Image
Hello ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope you are having a great day. I have to say that while making today's card, I rediscovered my love for Gold Embossing powder. Gold embossing powder is just so versatile and adds so much beauty to cards! I started with my floral border. I stamped the floral strip stamp onto watercolor cardstock so as to form a square. I then stamped the little girl and then sprinkled embossing powder and then heat embossed the front panel(watercolor cardstock). I then hand cut the panel around the floral border making sure to leave a little white border. I then watercolored the florals and the little girl. I was focussing on using mainly red and green while I was painting to enhance the Christmas theme, since the stamps I was using were not exactly designed for Christmas. Next I stamped my sentiment and heat embossed it. I then assembled my card. I used a white notecard and added a red mat to it. I then adhered the front panel and the sentiment strip using foam adhesive. To

Floral Wreath- Using Your Mini Stamp Sets

Image
Hello there ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope you are having a great day. Today's card features some gorgeous florals from a mini stamp set from Mudra Crafts. Here are some close ups  To start I drew a circle with a pencil on white cardstock. I then stamped the little floral cluster with a water soluble ink. Once I was done with all the stamping, I painted my wreath with watercolors. I then handcut the wreath making sure to leave a little white border around it, so that it stands out when I adhere it to the background. I chose a dark green cardstock for the base. I added foam tape to the back of my wreath image and then stuck it onto my base. I then splattered some white paint for some extra interest. I hand lettered my sentiment using a white gel pen. Finally I stuck the green cardstock onto a slightly bigger wine red piece of cardstock. That's it for today's card! I hope you liked it. Have a wonderful day๐Ÿ˜Š Cheers  Anisha

A Magical Wonderland ☺

Hello๐Ÿ˜Š I hope you are having a great day! Today's card features some adorable stamps from Itsy Bitsy Stamps. To start with, I handcut a cloud stencil and used it along with blue archival ink and a stencil brush to create the background. I then cut two extra clouds to add some dimension. Next I stamped and colored my images from the stamp set. I used color pencils,watercolors and alcohol markers for the different images. With all my elements ready I started building my scene. I used foam tape to add some extra layers and the to create the visual effect of several layers. I doubled up the foam tape in places to make it pop up a bit more as you can see with the princess. That's it for today's card! I hope you liked it. Taking part in the  MFT Color Challenge 153  with this card. Have a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious day!

You Make Me Smile๐Ÿ˜Š

Hello there ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope you are having a great day. So today's card is such a fun card. I realized I hadn't played with slimline cards in so long so it was about time!๐Ÿ˜‚ However this card was left in my card drawer for a few days and accidentally got slightly crushed ๐Ÿ˜ญ. But those sweet critters were too cute to not share so here it is! The most time consuming part of this card was definitely watercoloring each of those little critters, but the process was so much fun. Most of my cards feature foam tape because I love the extra dimension. To make the border of the card, I used patterned paper. I then used some orange and yellow dye inks along with my stencil brushes and just blended the inks on a piece of white cardstock. Finally I adhered my border and little critters into the card base using foam tape. That's it for the card. I hope you like the card๐Ÿ˜Š Supplies Used Craftyscrappers Circus Fun Stamp Set: http://craftyscrappers.in/index.php?route=product/product&

Flower Frame Card

Hello there ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope you are having a great day. Today's card features some gorgeous florals from Mudra Crafts.  This is the Wild Roses Stamp Set.  For coloring my flowers I used watercolors.I kept the color theme pretty simple - Pink ,Green, Gold and White.  First I stamped the images using Versamark ink on white cardstock and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. You could alternatively use white embossing powder for a brighter white outline. After painting the embossed images from the stamp set, I hand cut each element. I stuck the images on a piece of white cardstock using foam tape. Next I used the Sakura Gold Gel pen to draw the vines connecting the flowers at the top and bottom. Finally I added some dots to add some extra interest to the card and adhered it onto a pink card base using double sided tape.

Using Flowers as Your Focal Image

Hello There ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope you are having a great day. Today's card features the Magnolia Stamp from Mudra Craft. Here are some close up images of the floral image. I used watercolors to paint my image. My color theme was the colors of the Indian Flag. Although it isn't very clearly visible, I stamped the corners of the blue background piece using the same stamp,but with white ink. I also added a splatter of white and silver paint,to add some extra sparkle. I didn't want the receiver of the card to be distracted by a very loud background ,which is why I kept it simple and ,almost tone on tone.  That's it for today's card.

Coloring on Colored Cardstock

Image
Hello There  I hope you are having a great day๐Ÿค— Today's cards feature coloring on colored cardstock. For my examples I used kraft cardstock. My first tip for coloring on colored cardstock is to make sure to use a white pencil to add highlights to make your colors pop.  My second tip would be to add layers of colors, this makes the colors more vibrant. My third tip is to add extra details, I added sparkle using a silver gel pen. My third and final tip would be ,if you want your colors to really be bright and not discolored by the non white cardstock ,first color the area with a layer of white. If you are really interested in coloring with pencils ,please don't be daunted by all the super expensive coloring supplies. You can do amazing work with what you have๐Ÿค— The color pencils I used are only $3 for a set of 36. Taking part in  The Flower Challenge Hope you have day filled with grace. Cheers Anisha๐Ÿ˜Š

Easy Interactive Card

Who doesn't love interactive cards!๐Ÿ˜„ Today's card was so much fun to make and not too difficult either. The circle spins to reveal a blue colored sky. The whole card is held together by a BRAD! Yes ,you heard it right. Brads are such fun supplies to work with ,since they offer endless possibilities,especially with interactive cards. Both stamped images are from the Princesses and Dragons stamp set from Itsy Bitsy. I colored the image using watercolors. For the background I hand cut the cloud stencil and used Ranger Archival Inks and a blender brush(yet another amazing tool).๐Ÿ˜‰ I hand cut the grass(a very tedious process๐Ÿ˜‚) and adhered to the card to complete the scene. I added some EXTRA detail in the form if stars and faux stitched lines using a silver gel pen.  Finally I stamped the sentiment and we are done!! Yay!

Using Scraps to Create Awesome Backgrounds!

Image
Hello There ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope you are having a great day and thank you for stopping by.๐Ÿ˜‰ So this is the card for today. I think is card is so fun,don't you? So for the background I used some old scraps of paper I had, and cut them in varying thickness. Varying the thickness adds some extra interest. I just stuck all my strips on a piece of white cardstock diagonally,keeping a order for the colors in mind,if you want you could do a completely random pattern. I did the same for the circle on which my stamped image is matted. I didn't want the colors of the card to be too overwhelming so I added a piece of vellum onto the background piece. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock using silver embossing powder and Versamark ink. Using a silver gel pen I added dots and stitched lines around the card and the piece of vellum. And that's it for today's card. I hope you liked the card as much as I did.
