Cards using October release

Hello Friends Pooja here with second batch of inspirations for this month. I have gone soft and subtle with first card.The background is created using beaded Stencil and layered stitched bubble die-cut over it.

 The butterflies are from Doodled Butterfly set and so is the sentiment.

For my next card I used the negative of fern flourish die (By now you must have known I love using negative of die-cuts more than the positives).

 Its a clear shaker card. I have stitched two acetate sheets together with some sequins sandwiched between them. You can see some the sequins inside the ferns in this picture

Third and the final card for October is simplest.Created the texture by applying texture paste through abstract triangles stencil.

I wanted all the focus to be on fern die-cut so kept the design very clean.The sentiment is from Stringy text set.

I hope you enjoyed the post and loved my cards .

Thank you cards, sending happy mail with Swapna

Hi.. Crafty friends...

Here I am with my second DT post. To be frank I really struggled and liked the process of these 3 cards. At the end I am pretty happy with my cards.

I hope you are playing along with our October challenge which is a recipe. Please do read Guidelines carefully before linking your project.

Card #1
** First card is inspiration for our october challenge.
** I masked the card base (1"around the card base), placed the stencil diagonally on the base and secured with masking tape.
** I mixed candid apple distress ink with texture paste, applied it through stencil. Left it dry on its own.
** Die cut the scalloped frame (bigger) with same CS, few vellum fern flourishes and one white fern flourish.
** I double heat embossed the CS fern flourish with gold embossing powder to give it dimension. Die cut few Thank you, adhered them together and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
** To assemble the card, I foam mounted the frame on card base around the stencilled area. I put silver embroidery floss on top of which glued ferns. Added the sentiment.

Here is a close up of die cut embellishments, just love this texture of white embossing powder.

Card #2

** This was real fun to make. I just kept die cutting stitched bubble die.
** Used distress inks in blue range to blend over them.
** I stamped the image towards bottom and coloured with Staedler water colour pencils.
** Stamped sentiment with black ink.
** Used stitched rectangle die to die cut these panels.
** I glued these panels with liquid glue leaving little space in between.

Here is a closer look of die cut 

Card #3

** This is water colour card. I stamped the flourish image with versa mark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
** Used zig markers to colour flowers and leaves.
** Die cut the panel and foam mounted it on a grey CS.
** For sentiment, I die cut 2 times with grey CS and once with water colour paper.
** I used Zig marker to add shade to the die cut sentiment.
** Added few sequins.

Possibilities of PABD stamps!

Hello All,

Ria this side. Today I have brought some mix and matches of many products and projects that I have made with PABD stamps. But first I would start with a card.


When I had designed the Floral Bloom, I had this picture in my mind to frame it in a CAS style. I hope I have been able to! With the no-line coloring technique I have colored the elements. I did not stamped the whole image and added some loose florals and leaves to it. The die cut happy has been arranged with the birthday from the Alpha Banner stampset.


Now I thought to make something for the coffee and tea lovers! You are wondering what it could be... Let me show that to you

I have made few coasters where I have used the stencils available at PABD and the Alpha banner stamp set and yes you guessed it right- my handwritten sentiments. 

Here, the background only has been done with the stencil. 
Colors used here are acrylic colors.

Supplies used:

I hope you have liked the projects.

Feathers and Chess Pieces

Hello and good morning dear friends!

I'm Halak and today I have three cards using different color combinations to share with you.

Let's get started!

This one I've created using my favorite stamp set from October release, Chess Pieces. ^__^

The king chess piece is coated in black glitter that sparkles like diamonds in natural light! (What can I say, I absolutely love using glitter!) :P

I've also used the super pretty Abstract Triangle stencil from the October release for some subtle stenciling.

The Scallop Rectangle (larger rectangle) was used to die-cut.

Finished the project with some Enamel Dots and golden thread.

Tip : For projects with a CAS (clean and simple) look, adding thread is great for texture. Apart from thread you can also use, baker's twine, jute strings etc.

Here's a close up :

Let's check out the second project :

Halloween was my color inspiration for this note card.

Purple and orange get along fabulously with Peek-a-boo Designs Wine Cardstock.

This Feathers stamp set is a really good buy because it contains a variety of sentiments that are useful for both, general cards and mixed media projects.

In my project, I've added a few highlights in white to the feather and the circles in the background are created using the Bubbles Stencil as template.

For my third project, I created a card featuring the vibrant fun colors of summer.

Here's the picture :

For this card I used the Scallop Circle (larger circle) die.

The circle on which stamping is done was created using the yellow and green distress inks.

I used a beautiful quote with an assortment of gorgeous feathers from the Feathers stamp set.

Finished the project with a few half-pearls.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a lovely day! *Hugs*
