Floral fantasy to some magic.....

Hello everyone,

Have you seen the April release of Mudra stamps? All the stamps are gorgeous. I am here today to showcase my take on few of the stamps. Before I delve into that, I am simply amazed by the crisp images given by these stamps. I am lovin' it :)

1. Floral Fantasy #1






  • I stamped the base image with yellow ink from Altenew on to Bielo cardstock.
  • Colored the image with yellow and orange polychromos color pencils. 
  • Stamped the flower center on the colored image with Versafine Onyx black ink. Heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
  • Stamped the stem on CS with Dark Chocolate Altenew ink.
  • Cut the CS into 3 removing 1/8 of an inch in between to get panels.
  • Took another CS. Inked with DI (mowed lawn, wild honey, salty ocean) to get the shaded BG. 
  • Layered the panels with foam tape. Stuck the flowers and leaves.
  • Mounted this onto a black CS. Embellished with crystals.
  • Sentiment also from the same stamp set is stamped and heat embossed it.

2.  Dainty Blooms

I love this stamp and it suits my love for coloring. The flowers are so dainty and loved coloring them.


  •  Stamped the image with Onyx black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
  • Water colored with Zig Clean color brush.
  • Layered a pink CS with die cuts and oval stitched die cuts.
  • Fussy cut the image and arranged them on the panel.
  • Stamped the sentiment from the set with Onyx black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  
  • Added Wink of Stella (clear) on the flowers for a shimmer.

3. Magical Mushroom.

Such a cute stamp set. Such details on the stamps. Especially the cute caterpillar and the wood grain for the door.

I thought I need to make a magical card for this magical stamp. Here it is ....







Full card in view.

 Here is a closer view to show the wood grain and the cute caterpillar.




 This is such a fun card with a magic to it.
  • I followed the tutorial by Christina Griffiths to make a Magic slider card. Here is the link .
  • I stamped the image on acetate sheet with Stazon (only that will work! )
  • For the colored image I stamped the mushroom with Memento black ink, since I wanted to color the image with copic markers. 
  • Stamped the cute little caterpillar with Onyx black for crisp image and colored with polychromos. 
  • Shading also done with polychromos. 
  • Stamped the sentiment with Onyx black and embossed with clear embossing powder.
  • Embellished the front panel with some handmade flowers.

Happy crafting with Mudra stamps :)
