Guest Designer | Hussena

Hello everyone!
This is Hussena here and I'm so happy to be guest designing for Peek-a-boo designs this month. I was sent two amazing stamp sets by Vidushi to work with and I had a really great time creating projects using them. The stamps are good quality and are a dream to work with!

So without further ado, let me show you the projects :)

First up is a card I made with the Flowers in a Jar set. To create this card I first stamped and heat embossed all the images on a watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossed them. Then I watercolored my images using Distress inks, once dry, I fussy cut them and foam mounted them on my card base and created a diagonal design in the bottom half using washi tapes to add interest. The sentiment is from the same set and was stamped and heat embossed directly on the card base using Ranger's Super Fine Gold embossing powder.

To make my second card, I first created my background using Texture Paste mixed with Peacock Feathers Distress ink using a Heidi Swapp stencil. Then I die cut a circle using Spellbinders Nestabilities Circle dies and sponged it using Distress inks and foam mounted it on my card base. Then I stamped the flowers, leaves and the buds from the Flowers in a Jar set heat embossed it using Super Fine Gold embossing powder from Ranger and directly colored my images using a sponge dauber and Distress inks and fussy cut them before placing them on my card base. Added a few sequins to finish my card.

To create my third card, I again stamped and heat embossed the flowers and foliage from the Flowers in a Jar stamp set and colored it using Distress inks. This time I fussy cut the flowers separately and foam mounted them against the trellis background which I have made using various dies. The background is dry embossed using an embossing folder and lightly painted using Distress ink Peacock Feathers.

Next up are some really cute projects I created using the Little Wonder stamp set. This stamp has some of the cutest images which work very well for creating some adorable embellishments too :) I decided to create my own pattern paper using the small images from this set, so I directly stamped and clear embossed three of the images from this set and lightly colored in using Distress inks again! Once my pattern paper was ready, I made a pillow box out of it. Tied a bow using satin ribbon and added a tag to it which is again stamped from the Little Wonder set.

This cute gift tag is also created using the Little Wonder stamp set. Both the image and the sentiment are from the same set. I have off-setted the tag using another tag on the back with a strip of Washi Tape.

I created two Onesies, one is a card and other a tag. The central image is stamped and colored using different mediums. On the card, I have colored it using watercolor pencils and on the tag I have used markers to color my image.
