Hello Love Crafters!!!

So happy today to have a Guest designer, a wonderful soul and passionate crafter Meena Herale!! I have been following Meena’s work for a while, but i came to know later about her health. She is so inspiring to be so passionate in crafting and doing amazing works.

Hats off Meena, I am so glad to have you in Mudra Blog!

Let’s see her cards!!! 





“ Hello crafty friends,
I am Meena Herale from Shimoga, Karnataka, India. Today I am super excited to be a Guest Designer at Mudra. I just love the Mudra stamps because they have huge variety of designs and the images are very crispy each time. I love the floral stamp sets very much from Mudra. When Varshitha asked me for GD I was on 9th cloud and doing happy dance. Thank you so much Varshitha for giving me this awesome opportunity. Being a GD for an Made in India stamp  company is an honour.
About myself,
I started doing crafting from childhood by seeing my aunties and from books and news papers. Crafting is my heart and soul. It’s the only thing which makes me to forget my physical condition. I took crafting as my hobby and from year 2001 I took it as my profession. I love making cards, art journal, altered art, mixed media etc. I like to learn new techniques and style. I started writing blog from Feb’ 2016.

Without wasting more time now, here are few cards which I created using there March release.


CARD 1 – Ink Blending Over Intricate Stencil
  •  I took Bielo Smooth white CS and placed the Mudra Mandala 6’’ by6’’ stencil on it using painter tape.
  • Added Distress Oxide over the stencil using blending tool. Here I have used fossilized amber, spiced marmalade and wilted violet for blending.
  • Next I cut the CS to A2 size and adhere it on card base.
  • Then I heat embossed the greeting from Mudra Wild Rose stamp set on vellum using Silver embossing powder and adhere it using glossy accents. Finished the card using Mudra Sequins Harvest Mix.



 CARD 2 
  • Stamped the image on watercolour paper, coloured the flowers and leaves using Inktense pencils and fussy cut it.
  •  Took a A2 size pattern paper and mat it on card base. Next die cut an oval shape from white CS and adhere it on a vellum which is cut little smaller then A2 size.
  •  I stamped Bloom on the oval die cut and adhere the vellum on card.
  • Adhere the flowers and leaves around the die cut and added few blue sequins from Harvest mix.
  •  Stamped the other half of the sentiment on white CS and adhere it with foam tape.





CARD 3 - Mixed Media Card
  •  Took a Bielo CS little smaller then A2 size and started add Distress Oxide Fired Brick using blending tool. Added texture using Mudra stencil Mandala and Finnabair texture paste white crackle and let it to dry.
  •  Stamped the Wild Rose images on watercolour paper, coloured it with Distress Marker Fired brick and forest moss and fussy cut it.
  •  Adhere the flowers and leaves using glossy accent and foam tape on Bielo CS. To give sparkle on flowers I used wink of stella on it.
  •  Next mounted the Bielo CS on card base and added few clear sequins from Harvest mix pack.
  •  I heat embossed the sentiment using Mudra Floral Note stamp set on vellum using Silver embossing powder and adhere it on card.





CARD 4 - Split Coloring Card (2 for 1 card)

  •   I took 1 watercolour paper and 1 CS of A2 size for this card.
  •  Next I started building the pattern with Mudra Wild Rose stamps. For watercolour paper I stamped with Archival jet black ink and for colour CS I used Memento inks.
  •  After stamping I coloured the watercolour paper images but I didn’t colour the colour CS images.
  •  Next took both the papers and cut it using Paper trimmer at the bottom.
  •  Now I took 2 cards of A2 size  and adhere the cut pieces on it as shown in the picture and heat embossed the sentiment on black CS using Mudra Peacock stamp set. 
  •  Using foam tape I adhere the sentiment strip on the card where the two pieces meet and finished it with sequins.

I hope you guys liked my cards.”
