1 Stamp Set – Many possibilities

One of my personal challenges is to make as many cards and designs as possible from a single stamp set. To give my stamps the maximum love i challenged my self to make at least 10 cards from a stamp set. The MFT’s Space Explorer stamps are so cute and  the sentiments are so versatile that one could just keep on going…

The first thing I did was to stamp, color and fussy cut all my images. I think i have a few images from Lawn Fawn’s Out of this World stamp set as well (I like to mix brands for more fun). I also coated all the images with my wink of Stella glitter pen, because the fact is that there is huge amount of glitter in the space and that’s what makes the sun, moon and the stars shine… lol

CARD #1

1.jpg

For this card i blended Distress Inks on watercolor paper and flicked some white paint on it to make the galaxy. I love how the galaxy came out on this card.

CARD #2

This card is a Clean And Simple one. All i did was brush the galaxy with water colors, adhere the images and black heat emboss the sentiment. Vola! a card is ready.

CARD #3

3
I just love how this astronaut is floating amidst so many planet and stars. The oval die cut background symbolizes the expanding galaxy. The galaxy is made with distress oxide inks and clusters of stars have been die cut to add interest.

CARD #4

My Gansai Tambi watercolors arrived and i had to rush to my craft table to make a galaxy using those. The intense pigment gives a rich look to the galaxy and helps the images colored with copic markers pop against the background.

 CARD #5

When i saw that sentiment “today the world revolves around you”, all I could think of was a spinner card. In this card the world literally goes around the cute astronaut . How cute is that!

CARD #6 & 7

6.jpg

After floating about in the space for quite sometime, those astronauts landed on some new planets. I wish they discover a planet where crafting burns most calories. I will turn skinny in just a few days…

I just can’t get enough of the pop up box card. There’s something really charming about how a flat card pops open into a dimensional box card. The floating astronaut is just perfect for these types of cards.

CARD #9

10.png

This astronaut image is particularly best suited for a spinner card as it has the same shape in the front and back (one need not stamp a mirror image).

CARD #10

Shaker’s gonna shake – shake – shake – shake – shake

I just love making a shaker card. Well truth to be told, i have seen so many crafters on Youtube heat emboss an acetate sheet that i was fooled to think it was easy. Well my first two acetates warped so much i just could not stop laughing at myself. Third time definitely is a charm and i managed to get it right.

 

Thanks for visiting this page. Hope you had fun reading it. Have a great day!

Watercolors – CAS Flower card

Tried my hands on watercolors with one of my favorite flower stamps. This stamp is from altenew beautiful day stampset.

To make this card I first stamped the flower n leaves on a water color card stock with versafine onyx black ink. I then colored the images with water colors. After the images dried I die cut the images with coordinating dies and stuck them on my card front. I white heat embossed the sentiment on a black card stock n stuck in place. To finish the card I added the black, blue and violet mats and stuck everything on a card base.

Hope you like this clean n simple water colored flower card.

Thanks for dropping by.

Shaken not stirred

Hi, here’s yet another entry for the AAACard Challenge inspired by films

I think we all have grown up watching generations of 007 movies packed with adventure, action n thrill.

Over the years the actors playing the classy super spy changed, locations changed, Villians changed,  but what remained constant was this man’s drink n the precise manner in which he wants it made…

So here’s to Mr. Bond, James bond.

Love is in the Air

The movie UP is one of my favorite movies /love stories. I love the soundtrack of the film as well. Here’s another entry for the aaacardchallenge inspired by the movie UP.

 

To make the clouds I first die cut a scrap card stock with cloud border die. Then using the die cut as a stencil, I softly blended the cloud pattern on a white card front.

For this card I used stamps and coordinating dies from lawnfawn bicycle built for you , lawnfawn Fairy Friends and MFT adorable elephant. I colored the balloons with water colors and the house with copic markers.

To finish the card I stuck all the elements on the card front and added the Sentiment.

I love how stamps from lawnfawn and mftstamps  go so well together. That’s another love story I guess.

Linking this card toHSL anything thing goes with dies challenge

Hope you loved the card. Have a great day.

Autumn Wreath

This card was made in less than 5 mins. The fastest one so far.  Of course , i had all the supplies out on my desk, including the matting card stock and card base ready to go.

First I die cut some watercolor card stock using a rectangle die. Then using a bangle and a pencil i drew a very light circle.

I used the Hero Arts Flower Garden stamp set which has these cute and adorable images of flowers and leaves. I stamped some of those following the pencil circle as a guide and colored in with distress inks and water. To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment with spiced marmalade distress ink and matted the panel using a black and orange card stock.

                      Picture2

The most fun thing about making this card was that it one layer, easy to make and fast to execute. I did make 6 more cards with the same design and using different colors.

The colors and theme for the card are inspired by a couple of challenges that i am linking this card to:

I hope you liked my quick card.  Do let me know what you think by leaving me a comment.

PS: Don’t forget to erase the pencil line after the inks have completely dried.

 

It’s time for Cake!

Hi, Today i am sharing a card that i made on the go. I have always loved to craft/ color on the go. Helps me crave less for crafting time and the challenge to color or craft with limited supplies is fun! I especially like to color in a cafe. There is something about the combination of coloring and fresh brewed coffee that is wonderfully refreshing.. Also there are so many treats around to instantly reward myself for finishing a card or maybe even an image…. Lol

This one layer card was created on the go, in a cafe. I stamped the penny black ” Cupcake for you” stamp on water color card stock with versafine onyx black ink and colored it using Zig Real Brush Markers. I only colored the image and left the rest of the card very simple to achieve a CAS – One lay Card.

I am done with my card and as a reward – It’s time for Cake!
