Anything but NOT cards

Hello all

Ria on this side :) We hope you are enjoying crafting with the new release of Mudra. Ain't they irresistible? The DT package still makes me happy like a child *grin*.

This time I thought No cards! Why not some bookmarks...or something pretty new!

So, let us explore whats in store for today's post. But...be patient as this post is heavy with loads of pictures.

CATEGORY 1 : BOOKMARKS




  • I colored the piece of paper with transparent colors and splattered white acrylic. 
  • Then embossed the sentiment from Bookmark set in silver and white.



The same technique I have applied here but with different colors.


You can try them with more colors.



Here I have changed the sentiment on a subtle background.




  • I created the background with transparent colors in four shades.
  • I drew lines with colors and then diluted them with little water to create this pattern.
  • These took no time to make. As you can see the background is irregular, which I love about everytime.



This time I tried with different stamp sets. The sentiment is the best I have ever come across and the font is totally unmatched. I never bought or invested in any sentiment stamp. But this stamp made me in love with sentiments particularly. 
  • I have used Daisy bloom for the contrast and it worked pretty well. 
  • Layering is new to me so as dye inks (not even a month old), so whatever I have bought I created my own shades of layering. 
  • I have used Ranger Dye ink and Hero Arts Ombre ink pads to pick up the desired colors.
  • I have used Dare to fly sentiment set.



Another beautiful sentiment, isn't it?  This time in the layered inks of Altenew Red cosmos and the greens(Mowed lawn) with distress inks. the sentiment is Go Confidently.



Much of Bookmarks, now some stickers!

CATEGORY 2: TRANSPARENT STICKERS

Before I jump onto the procedure, Lets have a look how beautiful it looks:



I have used them to seal (temporary) my envelopes. So, here is the whole procedure:


  • I took a blank white paper from a note pad and stamped sentiments from Mixed Greetings white Black Archival Ink as it has to be water proof.

  • The I took Packaging tape or wide cellotape to cover it. In areas where I felt short of the same, I overlapped the cellotapes.

  • Then I cut down the sentiments with a scissor. I took a bowl with some water and immersed the paper in it.


  • Make sure, it gets completely immersed in water for 10-15 min.
  • Start rubbing off the paper gently and make sure there is no paper on the sticky side of the tape, leaving behind the transferred inked image.
  • You will notice, the stickiness is not there now, but it will return once it gets dried again. Yes, it doesnt remain that much sticky but like a washitape.

  • Let it dry for sometime keeping the sticky side upwards.
  • Then use it as you want :) I preferred on envelopes.

Create a base card of ur choice.Distress the top flap of the card using rusty hinge ink.Heat emboss the
sentiments from farewell stamps and butterfly stamp set using gold embossing powder as a background. I have embossed a piece of paper using leaves embossing folder and distressed it with cracked pistachio and twisted citron distress ink and afixed it as a strip in the middle. Farewell
sentiment is stamped with archival black ink and afixed at the bottom.

The base card is distressed with stormy sky ink on the top and the bottom for more than half an inch.on the cardstock piece i have created the stripe pattern with twisted citron distress ink using masking tape and die cut at the center   so that the sentiment stamp fits inside. On the base card heat emboss the sentiment using cornflower blue embossing powder.Using a foam tape fix the cardstock piece over the base card after properly positioning.Heat emboss the floral images from linen blooms stamp and arrange them.Have painted with mustard seed distress ink inside the flowers.
