Four Colorful Cards with Mudra Products

Hi folks!
Good Morning :)

Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. Hope you are doing well.

For today's post, I've prepared 4 Colorful Cards using Mudra's gorgeous supplies including their beautiful stamps, stencils, dye inkpads and chipzebs. I've used Mudra goodies from the awesome new release (which you can check out HERE) as well as some of my favorites from older releases. I've used mixed media techniques but also kept the card designs as clean & simple as possible. So, let's start!

Card 1: Blessed

Card 2: Special

Card 3: Love
 (Inspiration for Mudra's Challenge #30)

Card 4: Love
 (Inspiration for Mudra's Challenge #30)

Process Used for all the Cards:

1. Die cut rectangular panels of watercolor paper using dies
2. For the first 2 cards used Lindy's Gang Magical Shakers in blue & green colors to add color to 2 panels using the ink smooshing technique. For the last 2 cards, used Mudra's Mai Premium Dye Inkpads- Fuchsia Pink, Lilac and Ultra Violet to add colors to 2 panels using the ink smooshing technique
3. Did background stenciling on each panel using Mudra's beautiful stencils- (Asian Tile Pattern, Deco Pattern, Floral Splash and Mandala 2 Stencils) and Mudra's Mai Premium Dye Inks-Sky Blue & Ultra Violet
4. Did background stamping on the panels using Mudra Craft Stamps- Floral Love Stamp, Lakdi Ki Kathi, Mandala Mini & Tweet Heart Stamp & Mudra's Mai Premium Dye Inks- Lilac & Jet Black  
5. Darkened the edges of the panels using Mudra's Mai Premium Dye Inks- Ultra Violet & Jet Black 
6. Applied white paint to the chipzebs & adhered Mudra's gorgeous Chipzebs- Handdrawn Butterfly, Leaves 2, Words #3, Love Word, Made for Each Other, Dream Jars & Music Chipzebs to the 4 panels. Used them as focal elements and for sentiments on these cards
7. Foam mounted the panels on A2 sized white card bases and embellished the cards with white Nuvo drops.

Be My Valentine! A card and Video on blending property of Mai colours.

Hello Lovelies, 

Gayatri with you today. I have a video review on the blending property of Mai inkpads. In the process I made this using the new release stamp sets called Cute Couple and Be My Valentine. This card is also my take for this month's challenge.

First here is the card.

Here is the video tutorial 

  • My view on the blending property of Mai inkpads are that they are great for blending. 
  • Like any ink, start with a light hand and build the colour. 
  • Again, this ink will look patchy when wet and will smooth out to a beautiful blend once dry. Love that. 

Here are some closeups of the card.

Products used to make this card are listed below:


I have another card using the new Mandala #2 stencil and a rainbow of Mai colours ink pads.

  • In my previous card, I blended colours from the same family. 
  • On this card, I blended a rainbow of colours. 
  • I used Ruby Red, Tangerine Orange, Lemon Yellow, Sky Blue and Ultra Violet Mai colours and brush to sponge over Mandala #2 stencil. The Sky Blue over Lemon Yellow made the green. Cool huh!
  • Then applied a thin layers of Nuvo Moonstone glimmer paste. 
  • This paste adds glitter only so the colours show through.
  • The sentiment is made using Sparkle die, cut using black and white cardstock. Stacked and glued for dimension.
  • The secondary sentiment is from Sparkle stamp set. Stamped in black over Ruby Red and Tangerine Orange sponged cardstock strip.

Here are some closeups of the card.
