Three Floral Cards!!

Hello friends!! This is Kanan and today I have few floral cards to share with you.

Let's get started.

First Card - 

  • Used one of the border stamp from "Build a Ribbon" set. Used Distress ink and sprayed some water and stamped directly on a card base.
  • Stamped few flowers and leaves from "Botanical Blooms" set.
  • Arranged everything on the card base.
  • The sentiment is from the "Frames and Fills#1" set.
  • Lastly, added some matching gems.
  • Love how those pink and orange with pop of blue goes so well with each other.
Second Card -

  • Cut few ruffled strips from a floral patterned paper.
  • Adhered it on a card base.
  • I chose the pretty flower from one of my favorite Mudra Stamp "Peony Love" set.
  • I wanted to keep it simple so chose a green ink which was matching with the patterned paper color and stamped the flower. I did not color the flower.
  • The sentiment is from "Simply Florals"
  • Those ruffled stripes adds so much of interest and dimension to this card, you don't have to always color the images. 
Third Card - 

  • For this card I used a fun technique.
  • Took some ink (I used few shades of Distress inks and Memento ink) from the ink pad on a acrylic block and used baby wipe to lift it up from the block and applied it on a card stock. 
  • After the inks were dried I stamped the flower and leaf image from the "Geometric Nature" set.
  • I inked a card panel using Distress ink and sprinkled some water. 
  • Adhered all the images on it.
  • The sentiment is from "Universal Love"
  • Love how this card turned out and how those color look together with that cool effect.

Hope you will like my cards. If you have any questions or suggestions, please leave a comment.

Rakshabandhan - Festival celebrating love between brothers and sisters

Welcome Friends ! Piyanki Here today , hope you are having a great weekend. As you all know last month I started my journey with Mudra and today I have some CAS cards for celebrating Rakhi.

Mudra released some beautiful stamps for creating the perfect gift for your brother or as a return gift for your sister.
