Inspiration Cards for Diwali Festival

Hello Everyone,

Zalak here on blog today. First I would like to wish Happy Diwali to all my crafters and their family in advance. I remember when I was child, when Diwali comes we clean our rooms, arrange our study cupboard, help mom for Diwali snacks, decorating home with Rangoli, lights, crackers and of-course school homework 😜. But in-spite of having all this task, we enjoy this festival thoroughly, isn't it?

I have so many cards for our challenge #14. I hope you all like it, create some cards for your friends and family and also participate in our on going challenge.

So let's begin,

First Card:

  • I have took some bielo cardstock and randomly stamped LED light from "Festive of Lights" stamp set. Same colored it with zig clean clear brush markers.
  • Stamped Diya from "Diya Mini" stamp set on another scrap bielo cardstock and colored it with zig clean clear brush markers. Adhered it with foam tape to give a little bit pop up look.
  • To finish my card, I have splatter some black color and give LED some sparkle effect with spectrum markers.

Second Card:

  •  For this card I have started creating glow of light using squeezed lemonade distress ink on brustro watercolor cardstock.
  • Used some scrap watercolor paper and stamped lantern, fuzzy cut and colored it with zig clean brush markers.
  • Stamped sentiment from " Diwali Sentiment" stamp set. Splatter some dots with black color.
  • Adhere it with foam tape on the background which I have created and finish my card with creating some thread to lanterns using micron pen.

Third Card:

  • For this card I first created background with distress inks, stamped some burst stamp randomly from "Deepavali" stamp set with versamark and heat set it with silver sparkle embossing powder.
  • Die cut some skyline and adhered it at below of the card. 
  • To finish my card, I stamped sentiment from two different stamp set, which is  "Deepavali" and "Diwali Decor" on vellum paper using versmark and heat set it with white embossing powder.

Fifth Card:

I thought of this card when I was searching some inspiration images on google, I then grab my stamps and randomly created layout on scrap papers.

  • Started with brustro water color paper, hand drawn big Diya as for this layout my kit doesn't have big diya. 
  • Randomly stamped leaves and flowers from "Leaves" stamp set with distress oxide inks.
  • Same way stamped some butterflies from "Butterfly Flutter" stamp set.
  • Sentiment is hand written and "Deepavali" stamp set.
