STAMPlorations – Digital Stamps

Hello There!

It’s Bharati here and welcome to my blog. So glad you joined in.

Today i am really excited to share the projects I made using digital stamps from STAMPlorations. It feels wonderful to be on the design team of STAMPlorations Digital  along with other fabulosly talented ladies. Thank you Shery for the opportunity.

Here’s Project 1 : Floral Card colored with Alcohol markers and Pencil Colors

1a

If you wanna make a card like this, all you have to do is visiti the page of STAMPlorations Digital Stamps. Yes! this stamp is absolutely Free! Its called FREE Love/Spring Themed A2 Card Front. While you are there, i am encourage you to explore the site with such gorgeous designs and look for your choice.

This particular floral design comes with the background script which adds so much interest to the overall look. So, all i had to do was to print the stamp in a desirable size on a cradstock, I start coloring.

If you know me well, you know how I love coloring on the go. So this beauty was colored sitting a cozy lil cofee shop facing the sea, listening to my a book. I did take a lot of time to reach the finished look but all that time coloring, enjoying the book and some coffee was pure bliss. Felt, so relaxed and refreshed.

3.JPG

I used copic markers to color the images and added the details with prisma color pencils.

So in the begining, I first colored all the areas that I wanted to be dark, with my drakest of the copic combos. I then moved the color using the lighter colors from the same combo. After coloring with copics, i added details , shading and shadows with color pencils.

4.JPG

I finally, colored the background in light blue color using prisma color pencil. Once the cloring was done I adhered the entire card front on a pale pink card stock and later on a black card base.

For finising touches I added a few sequins here and there. I hope you like the coloring and the finished card.

PROJECT 2 : Card for Coffee lovers -suitable for all occasions

Are you a coffee lover? I am and any friend of coffee is a friend of mine !

I was instantly in love with the Bloomdala Coffee Cup stamps from the moment i saw these. Actually these come in a  set of 6 and are simply stunning designs.

1a.JPG

To make this card i first printed one of the cups from the beautiful Bloomdala Coffee Cup stamps  on to a cardstock and colored it using copic markers and pencil colors.

2.JPG

I then fussy cut the image and adhered it to a black card base. I love how the colorful cup pops against the black.

3.JPGFor the sentiment I inked a card panel with bright green ink and die cut from it using  the CUTplorations die set Coffee love. I die cut the same sentiment from a white cardstock as well and layered it underneath the colored sentiment.

5

To finish the card i added a few glitter drops using nuvo glitter drops and adhered the whole panel to a white card base.

CASology #346 Ring

Hi there!

Welcome to my post for the CASology challenge this week.

I have a important news to share. I am presently at a stage in my life that some of the family and personal goals are taking priority over crafting time. With less time for cardmaking I feel, I may not be able to do proper justice to my position on this very amazing design team. Hence, with a heavy heart I have decided to step down from the CASology team from June 2019.

It was such a great journey for me with the ultra cool ladies on the team. We always helped eachother and shared inspiration. It was just pure creative fun! Thank you so much Deidre Payne, Jacquie Southas, Janet Ribet, Jen Wills, Joyce Mehrberg, Karen Haman, Melissa Chipperfield, Rachel, and Sue Symens. You Gals Rock!

I must thank you all the participants and regular visitors of CASology for all the sweet words and kind comments. It helped me in sharing my creations each week for over a year and half now.

Like they say, all good things must come to an end. This is where i bid you all good bye. I hope we will continue to keep in touch through blogland.

Comming to the cue word is this week. It is “Ring”

Week 346 - Ring.jpg

Here’s my take:

1.JPG

I first stamped, colored and fussy cut the image of this adorable lion. I used zig real brush markers to color the image and add details on the mane.

2.JPG

Next I stamped the images of the circus tent and elephant with a very light distress ink and used masking paper to help get the desired affect.

3.JPG

I then added the sentiment in black and adhered the image of the lion to completet the card.

4.JPG

I hope my card inspires you to join us at CASology and gets you to crafting. Do  play along with us, just remember to keep it CAS. The following CAS guidelines should be of help when creating your design:

  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

Father’s Day with Tubby Craft

Hello There!

It’s Bharati here.  Father’s day is coming and here are a few ideas for the occasion

Book Marks

Picture1.png Picture2.png

To make these bookmarks I used the stamp by tubby crafts called “Book mark”. I just love this one.

Picture3.png

For the first book mark i inked the cardstock with Tubby Craft inks called – Yellow, Tangy Orange, Light Pink, Raspberry and Violet. Then I stamped the sentiment and the tiny book image in Jet Black ink.

Picture4.png

For the second book mark stenciled some scripty lettering in Tubby Craft ink called – Lead gray.  I also did a border with the same ink and then stamped the image of tiny book all over in Jet black ink and colored the images.

Picture5.png

I added some twin to both the bookmarks after punching a hole.

Picture6.png

I am sure these would be perfect gifts for the book & coffee loving dads. I know my dad will love these and remember when he is using these.

CASology #345 Clam

Hi there!

Welcome to my post for the CASology challenge this week. The cue word is this week is “Calm”

I actually started crafting and card making to cope with my stress and still it is a great stress buster for me. Some times i have these bouts of mild depressions and the stigma attached to it makes it even more harder to share. Crafting and the amazing crafting community has really helped me immensely, for which i am forever grateful.

Here’s my take:

DSXR9019.JPG

I first placed the stencil of Buddha slightly off set from the card front and then inked it with distress inks.

QGMT5512.JPG

I then adhered the the sentiment strips
