The Festival of colors - HOLI

Hello Everyone!!!

This is Manu. Yes, you guessed it right, this post is all about the Festival of colors: HOLI!!!
Holi is just around the corners and what best way to add some personal touch to your holi festivities than adding a dash of Handmade to it!! Handmade sure brings out the best in the greetings across India!

I'm very happy that there are finally some stamps that cater to the Indian festivals!!! Truly 'Made in India' and 'Made for Indians' !! I'm totally in love with the Holi stamp set launched by Peek-a-boo!! The total series consists of a 4*6 stamp set and 2 mini sets!! Total fun and a sureshot funfilled way to make cards and share them with your loved ones!!! You can find all the stamps at the Peek-a-boo store here. Go, checkout some really nice stuff that's all made in India!!! This stamp company is very promising and I'm sure there will be lots of new, fun stamps coming all the way from the team!! 

Here's what I made!!!

It's a set of 4 mini cards along with tags!!! As Holi is around the corner, I thought of making some cute cards for my little one's school folks!!! 

I have a little tutorial also about how I went making some of the cards in this series!!

Lets check out one by one!! I almost made the tags in sync with the cards that I did!

The card is easy peasy and for the tag, I first stamped the sentiment from the stamp in the middle as in the below pic.

Once done, I thought of putting the hand impression stamp in a round manner around the sentiment, hence, using washi tape as the circular thing, I drew a little circle around the sentiment and then proceeded too stamp using various memento and the altenew inks!

I totally love the splatter one on these itty bitty cute cards!!!

For the card, I took different colored inks along with the splatter stamp piece from the set and stamped randomly on the cardstock!! Once I was satisfied with the color all across, I stamped the sentiment and placed it with some foam tape to add a 3D look!
The splatter on the tag was done similarly!!!

The H O L I alphabets on the hand impression stamp are embossed with black ranger EP, and the sentiment is from another stamp set!! The first ever HINDI stamp set. If you are a lover of making cards and handing them out to friends and family and want the sentiments to be in Hindi, this stamp set is a must have!!!! You can checkout the All-occasion stamp set here.
This tag is one of my favorite one!!!

I used the all Occasion stamp set and used the word HOLI from the set!! Stamped this multiple times on the cardstockk to make my background. I then stamp the hindi stamp set on another cardstock and adhered it to the base panel made. Added a few colorful splatters and voila!! I'm done!!!

Here are my tags and cards again!!!
I do hope you will like these pretties and these 3 sets are a must have for all the card makers!!! 


I'm sure gonna make some more of these lovely ones and gift them to my family and friends!!!
Do checkout the current challenge here which is to make a set!!! be it anything!
