Good Bye 2018 - Welcome 2019

Hello Everyone!

This is Zalak A Mandal from thecardshopstudio. What an amazing year with full of our DTs inspirations and amazing new products from MUDRA. This is my last post on a last day of this year. I hope you all share your love and creations next year also. I would also like to wish everyone a wonderful and crafty new year in advance.

Today I have three cards using our December Kit. So, let's see

Card 1

  • I have created a post card using "Santa World" and "Christmas wishes" stamp set.
  • Here I am using watercolor paper as a panel and mark it from center.
  • Then I roughly figure-out my card layout and stamp Santa, Christmas tree, postage and sentiment stamp with black archival ink.
  • Once I am done with the layout, I have colored them with faber-castell polychromos pencil.
  • Then from the same stamp set I have stamped snowflakes using distress oxides.
  • To complete my card I have adhered some jewels to Christmas tree.

Card  2

  • I have created this card using "Christmas Poinsetta" and "Christmas Greetings"
  • Same as above card, I have used watercolor paper and stamped leaves from the stamp set along with some berries.
  • Then Colored them with faber-castell poloychromos pencil.
  • Then Stamped sentiments on a vellum paper using black archival ink.
  • To complete the card, I have adhered some jewels.

Card 3

  • I have created this card using "Christmas Poinsettia" and "Christmas Wishes" stamp set.
  • I have randomly stamped big flower from the stamp set using black archival ink.
  • Then I have masked all the flowers with the masking sheet then I have stamped leaves.
  • Once stamping done, I have Colored them with faber-castell polychroms pencil.
  • Then I have stamped sentiment on a vellum paper.
  • To complete the card, I have adhered some jewels.  

I hope I have inspired you today, the stamp sets are versatile for any theme card.

Blessed - New year Mixed media creation

Hello friends ,

Im Sharada Dilip from HappyMomentzz here...Its nice to be back to share few more creations and inspirations towards the end of the year.

I have a Star Canvas for you , something I made during Christmas as a part of my Christmas Decor Ornament. I have used Snowflakes Stencils and decorated the stencil and then coloured it with blue and glitters. Further I have layered it with Snowflakes Chipzeb and Snowflakes Frame Chipzeb . Here you can see how I have gone about decorating the star and close ups.

I totally love how much we can do with these chipzeb shapes....

Coming to my next project , This is a 8x8 canvas creation. I have created the base with all my scrap pattern paper pieces and decorated the way along.

I have used Christmas Poinsettia Stamp to build the background and coloured the area excluding the stamped flowers.

I have used Handdrawn Mandala Chipzeb as the center of the creation and decorated along with flowers . I wanted to keep it that way but you know me cant do without the sentiments and hence added the sentiment from Christmas Greetings Stamp.

finally I have used Words#3 Chipzeb to complete the creation .

This creation is something dear to me as we come to an end of another year of creating , learning and inspiring ! Hoping to see you all next year...Happy New year to you all!
