  3. Score at 3.5” , 7” on the longer sider and fold it along the score lines. Ensure they are folded crisp.
  4. Take some pattern paper and cut them at 6.9” x 3.4” and cut 5 of them for all the inner and outer layers.
  5. For one of the money wraps use any decorative border die for the opening.
  6. Gold emboss the Persian elements and the blooms and heat set it.
  7. Using Zig markers color and shade the bouquet.
  8. For the closure one of the money wraps is using a belly band and one using ribbon.
  9. For the belly band cut a piece of white card stock measuring 11”x 2” and score at 3.6” and 7.1” and then stick both the ends.
  10. Fussy cut all the flower images and then assemble on the top.

Red and Gold Elegant Diwali Cards

Hello my dear lovely people! It's me, Deepti here with a few Elegant Red and Gold Diwali cards. I love this color combo so much because the color combo itself speaks about festivities and celebration! ;) I used the newly released stamp sets called Diwali Sentiment, Deepavali, Crackers stamp sets and Splash Stencil for my project today.


Project Details
  1. I started by ink blending the background with Festive Berries Distress Ink and added splashes of water for some water color look
  2. Next I took another panel which is smaller in size and stamped the image and sentiment from Crackers Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and Heat Embossed with Gold Embossing Powder
  3. Also applied Gold Pigment Paint along the edges of the smaller panel
  4. Finally adhered the smaller panel over the main card base

And here is the closure look of the card!


Project Details
  1. For this card, I started by stamping the Rangoli image from Deepavali stamp set on red card stock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder.
  2. Onto the Vellum card stock I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from Diwali Sentiment stamp set.
  3. Next I wrapped the Vellum piece around the Red card stock and adhered the red panel over the main card base
  4. Finally finished the card off with a few yellow sequins


Project Details
  1. I took a shimmery red card stock, placed the Splash Stencil over it and applied Festive Berries Distress ink through it. I just love that red on red/ tone on tone look ;)
  2. Next, onto a water color paper I water color stamped the image from Deepavali stamp set with the same Festive Berries Distress Ink
  3. Finally stamped the sentiment from Diwali Sentiment in Versamark Ink and Heat Embossed the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder
  4. I applied Gold Pigment Paint at the edges of the water color paper
  5. Finally finished off the card with a few Gold Sequins

And here is the closure look!

Guest Designer - Preeti Datta - Part II


Second post of the day!! We have a great treat for all Mixed Media Buddies!! yeah!! we are here today with Preeti Dutta’s Guest Design Post Part II. If you missed part one dont miss to see her Super CAS cards here, without wasting time, lets do and see what she has for us... 

Hi friends!
I’m back with Part 2. If you missed the first part of my GD post, you can check it out here.
Today, I will be sharing Mixed Media Projects. Let’s get started!


Bookmark 1

Mudra Supplies Used: Peacock stamp

Bookmark 2

Mudra Supplies Used: Doodle Cluster Stencil, Stamps- Old Script & Bookmark

Bookmark 3

Mudra Supplies Used: Rose Stencil, Stamps- Washi tape, Go confident, Wild Rose

For these bookmarks, I have created the background by blending few colors of gelatos. Then, did random stamping (with black archival ink) and/or stenciling (with distress oxide and distress ink). The basic intent was to create interest and layers without adding bulk.

Mixed Media Card 1

Mudra Supplies Used: Stamps- Wild Rose, Washi tape, Old Script & Elegant Damask; Doodle Cluster Stencil

This is a dimensional vintage card. Did stenciling with modeling paste to create texture. Some of the layers have background stamping. White Gesso was used to prep the base and color was added using ink sprays, distress ink and gelatos.

Mixed Media Card 2

Mudra Supplies Used: Stamps- Peacock, Wild Rose, Go Confident; Doodled Cluster Stencil

This is a dimensional mixed media card. I’ve used lace here along with thread. Have added modeling paste through a stencil here and then colored it with ink sprays. In the end, added splatter with white gesso. 

Mixed Media Layout


Mudra Supplies Used: Stamps- Brushed Alphas, Leaves, Floral Silhouette & Old Script; Doodle Cluster Stencil; Sequins- Neon Green

I wanted to create a Mixed Media Layout with a calm forest feel and hence, have used a green color palette.  Have done background stenciling with archival ink and a sponge and then stamped over top with multiple stamps in various shades of green. Have used burlap, corrugated cardstock, die cuts, flowers & gauze for creating dimension and interest. The title #peace is stamped using the Mudra brushed alphas set. It is a great stamp to own since you can create your own sentiments with it.

That’s it from me. Thanks a lot to Mudra Stamps & Varshitha for having me here, I had a great time creating.

Hope you all liked what I shared.
Would love to read your wonderful comments.

Stay Blessed and Happy Crafting.”
