Cute Projects: Mixed Media Layout & CAS cards

Hi folks!
Good Morning :)

Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. Hope you've had a pleasant week :)

For today's post, I've prepared Three Cute Projects, one Mixed Media Layout and 2 Clean & Simple (CAS) cards. I've used Mudra's beautiful stamps, stencils, chipzebs, sequins & pattern papers. There is a pictorial with the step-by-step process used for the mixed media layout as well. So let's start :) 

1. Mixed Media Layout- Baby Girl

Pictorial (with step-by-step process):

Step 1: Used Canson Watercolor Paper as the base, distressed it's edges and adhered it to a black chipboard, 12 by 12 inches in size (for strength). Then added colors and splatters to the background using various watercolors

Step 2: For the layering, created mats using pattern papers from Mudra's Beary Hugs Paper pack, distressed & darkened their edges. Also, fussy cut few cute bear images. 

Step 3: Did background stenciling using archival & distress inks and Mudra's Stencils: Falling Hearts, Falling Stars, Floral Mini 5 & Memory Dots Stencils.

Step 4: Started layering the elements, used 3d foam tape and chipboard pieces in between some of the elements for added dimension. Used gauze, threads, twines for extra texture and to create a sense of movement. 

Step 5: Collected a few of Mudra's beautiful chipzebs for layering (matching the baby girl theme) and colored some using distress inks. Used Mudra's Chipzebs- Teddy Bear, Spring Floral, Baby Girl, Baby Liner, Balloon Mini Shaker & Mini Hearts.

Step 6: Did background stamping using archival and dye inks & Mudra stamps- Old Macdonald, Stay Magical & Polka Dots. 

Step 7: Adhered the layers down. For added shine, adhered Mudra Couture Sequins: Sugar Plum Mix & Harvest Mix using Glossy Accents. In the end, created splatters using watered down white and black gesso.

2. Clean & Simple Card- Hello Sunshine


1. Die cut 3 circles using white cardstock, lightly blended yellow hues of distress inks onto the edges of the circles. 
2. Stamped the cute money images onto the circles using Mudra's 5 Little Monkeys Stamp & Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Adhered these to the A2 sized white card base.
3. Stamped the sentiment from Mudra's Hello Sunshine Stamp onto the card base, drew on scribbly black lines to emphasize the sentiment and added 3 enamel dots to finish the card. 

3. CAS One Layer Card- Bright & Happy Day


1. Used the negative of a circular mask to blend pink, blue and yellow distress oxides onto an A2 sized white card base. Splattered on water in some places & dabbed it off to create the look of oxidization on the colored circles.
2. Stamped on the cute animal images using Mudra's Old Macdonald stamp & Versafine Onyx Black ink. And then stamped on the sentiment using Mudra's Hello Sunshine Stamp.
3. For some sparkle, adhered on a few sparkly silver sequins using Mudra's Couture Sequins Harvest Mix.
4. In the end, drew on a scribbly, zig-zag, stitching border with a fine black pen.

Fun ways with Stencil

Hello everyone,

This is Gayatri from HandmadebyG3 with you today sharing three cards using the same two products from Mudra. I chose the Peony stencils and the Wishing you stamp set to make all the three cards.

Card 1: Sponging Inks over stencil

  •  I masked the leaves and sponged the flowers using distress inks in Abandoned Coral and Ripe Persimmon. Then masked the flowers and sponged the leaves with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress inks.
  • Then I masked two inches of all four sides of the panel using masking tape and sponged Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch distress inks. I removed the mask to reveal a white border with blu sponged rectangle inside.
  • I simply stamped the sentiment using Black ink vertically. 
  • Then added white Nuvo crystal drops.

Card 2 :Adding details using colour pencils

  • I sponged the stencil covering the entire panel using Hickory Smokes distress inks very lightly.
  • Using grey colour pencil, I added details on the ink sponged images. I kept the colours monochromatic because I have created a background panel.
  • I then sponged the entire panel with Tumbled Glass distress ink very lightly.
  • Trimmed the panel and glued on card base
  • Stamped the big sentiment direct on the card using black ink.
  • The small sentiment I white heat embossed on white strip of cardstock and sponged Candied Apple distress ink.
  • Again a few Nuvo white crystal drops scattered near the sentiment to finish the card.

Card 3: Dry emboss the stencil and apply Perfect Pearls

  • I dry embossed the stencil on black cardstock panel.
  • Then rubbed versamark over the embossed image. Following which I applied Copper Perfect Pearl powder. This powder will stick to the versamark sticky ink. Brushed off the excess powder using dry brush.
  • I white heat embossed the sentiments from Wishing You stamp set on vellum paper and wrapped around the embossed panel and secured it behind.
  • This panel I adhered on black card base using foam adhesive. 
  • Nuvo white crystal drops to finish the card.

Hope you like these projects I shared today and give it a try. I have listed all supplies used below.
