Twinkling card + Scrapbooking elements

Hello Crafty folks!

I'm Manu here and I have a couple of projects to share which I had been working on recently. This post will mainly focus on the new scrap booking paper that has been launched and the dream big, lil one stamp set, did I tell you that this stamp is one of my favorite and I have been using it out loud in the baby albums that I have done recently?
Along with that I also have a twinkling card made with the same stamp set. I always love incorporating some unique elements which are also interactive in nature into the baby albums that I work on. This card would go onto becoming a part of one such album!

Lets first see the twinkling card!

Here's what it looks like. I have kept the card as simple as it can be to highlight the main point in this card(you will soon get to know that point).




You must be wondering why a lot of holes in the moon on this card, well, lets just call this a moon full of craters. Looks well uptil now ?? Wait, here comes the fun part.
Do you see the star below on the right?? how about if we press it??


 Voila.... My moon lights up!!! This sounds something very inetresting, right!!




So that was the reason for the craters on the moon.

This interactive card has a circuit beneath which helps  me light up the moon when I press the star!! So that is the reason why I had poked a few holes (well, these are carters and our moon does have them!) in the moon.


Lets move on to the scrap booking elements in the albums. As you all know that I love making baby albums and I always love to incorporate something new and exciting in the albums. I love the interactive cards and then a thought struck as to why not incorporate those elements in the albums.
I'm sharing a few 3D pop up elements of the baby albums that I have currently worked on.

I'm mainly focusing on the element sheet that is there with the Beary hugs paper pack along with the dream big, lil one stamp set.
So in all this post is mainly about how-to or ways-in-which one can use the element sheets from the beary hugs paper pack to make your projects more attractive



Here are the two pages that I worked on with the stamp set. It's fun colouring up this cute baby image sleeping on the moon.



Now there is another 3D pop up when one opens up this flap(where the baby image is), when one opens up this flap, here's what in store !



 Here's a pretty 3D element with a cute bear image from the element sheet.  Here is the complete picture of the page beneath where I have also used the image from the pregnancy stamp set.



Below is another album which I did for a baby boy. 



 Here's another pop up featuring the cute teddy from the Beary hugs paper pack!!



Below is another page from the same album which has another element from the element sheet of the paper pack! It's so much fun to use these element in n-number of ways!



I did an album cover with this cute little bear sitting on the moon on a baby album's cover page!



Below is the complete picture of this album!!

This album has another pop up with this cute image of the bear popping out of a gift box!!


Wow!! I shared some pages from three of the baby albums I had worked on.
I truly loved this paper pack and all the co-ordinating elements this paper pack has to offer !! I have also worked on an album completely made with this paper pack and you can check out all the details about the album here.


Also the current month challenge is all about christmas and you can find all the deets for the same here.

Christmas cards...

Hi! I am back today with some more inspiration for our current challenge



Card 1:

For my first card I combined some stencils with heat embossing.


  • Take a panel of red card stock and stamp the sentiment with embossing ink. Heat emboss with gold embossing powder.
  • Place the Splash stencil in the desired position and apply embossing ink through it. Heat emboss with red glitter embossing powder.
  • Run the embossing ink pad over the edges of the card panel, dip into gold embossing powder and heat set.
  • To make the stripy background, take a red card base and simply draw diagonal lines with two different gold markers. Turn the ruler upside down while using the markers so that the ink doesn't smear.
  • Pop up the card panel on some foam tape and adhere to the card base.

Here is a closer look at the card:

Card 2:
For my second card I used a combination of techniques.




  • Take a panel of silver shimmer paper and ink with distress oxide inks Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean.
  • Stamp the snowflakes from the Christmas Decors stamp set with silver pigment ink.
  • Die cut the panel and also a window. Place the panel of shimmer card base and stamp the stag image from the Christmas Decors stamp set. I inked the body of the stag with Peacock Feathers and the horns with Salty Ocean.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Christmas stamp set on a strip of shimmer paper with both the inks again.
  • Mount the inked panel and the sentiment on foam tape.

Here is a closer look:

Card 3:

I went for nontraditional colors for this card. I also couldn't resist using the Arabic Pattern stencil which is the first stencil I have designed for Mudra. I love how it turned out!





  • Take a piece of shimmer paper and ink it with distress oxide inks Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans.
  • Die cut a rectangle out of the center.
  • Stamp the tree from the Christmas stamp set and the sentiment from the Christmas Decor stamp set with embossing ink and heat set with gold embossing powder.
  • Tape the Arabic Patterns stencil to the remaining panel. This is a pattern that can be extended easily so the paper size doesn't matter.
  • Apply gold pigment ink through the stencil.
  • Adhere the center panel to a kraft card base and pop up the frame with foam tape.

Here is a closer look.

I hope you are inspired by my cards and create something beautiful. You can link your entries here.
