Over to my projects now!
I have TWO cards and an Altered Gift Box to share. I have used the latest release from Papericious which is the Mi Estilo & The Gentleman Paper  Packs for my projects & the latest release stamps from MUDRA.

Here's a look at my first card :

  1. To create this card, I first took an A2 card base and die-cut a frame which was slightly smaller than my base. 
  2. Them, I die-cut the script pattern paper from the Mi Estilo pack to create a diagonal pattern on my card front.
  3. I stamped and colored the Zinnia flower using three different shades of Distress Inks, then fussy-cut it and foam mounted it on my card front.
  4. I stamped the sentiment using the Sophisticated Sentiments by masking the sentiment half and half.
  5. I added some die-cut leaves and stamped & clear embossed leaves from the Wild Florals set to create my foliage.
  6. For the finishing touches, I added some color coordinating enamel dots & gold paint splatters.

Moving on to my next card :

This card was rather easy to put together and that might sound a bit weird as masculine cards are always difficult to make, but the Papericious Gentleman Paper Pack & Mudra DAD set are just the perfect match to make such cards :)

Here's how I made it :

  1.  To create this card, I first took an A2 red colored card base and die-cut a frame using the Argyle pattern Paper from the Gentleman Pack which was slightly smaller than my base. 
  2. Then, I took another paper from the same collection and again die-cut a frame smaller than my previous card front and foam mounted it for dimension.
  3. The white card panel was also die-cut using a Stitched Rectangles die & I have stamped the moustache, the glasses, the bow-tie and the sentiment from the Dad set.
  4. For the hat, I have done paper-piecing on the band of it using a pattern paper from The Gentleman pack.
  5. Finally added some google eyes to create some fun interest to my card.

The last & final project I have for you today is an Altered Box. 

Here's how I went about altering it :
  • I first gessoed the entire box so that it could take paint easily.
  • I then used the Prima Chalkboard paint to color my base. I made sure to cover all sides of the box as well as the insides to give it a nice, shabby look.

  • I then measured and cut pattern papers from The Gentleman paper pack and distressed the edges of the paper using Hickory Smoke Distress Ink.
  • Then, I have die-cut a scalloped border using the Mi Estilo paper pack and I have used this border on all four sides of the box.
  • To embellish the top of the box, I have die-cut a few decorative frames using Spellbinders Dies. I have stamped the sentiment from the Mini Bunch set.
  • The flowers & the leaves are stamped & fussy-cut using the Daisy Bloom set. 
  • I have also used some die-cut leaves and some glitter flourishes to create my foliage.
  • Added some pearls and a butterfly to complete the overall look.

Pattern Papers and Stamps used :

That's it from my side. I hope you liked my projects and are inspired to create something using products from both Papericious & Mudra. Don't forget to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you :)
