A mixed bag of projects!

G'day everyone, Gayatri with you today sharing a mixed bag of projects using some new release products and some from older releases. So there is a Christmas card, a New Year card and a birthday card. So enjoy!

My first card is a Christmas card using the new Christmas Poinsettia Stamp. This set is great for colouring and I attempted no line colour pencil colouring.

  • I created mask for the flowers using Mudra masking paper.
  • I stamped, masked, stamped the imaged from the stamp set to create a cluster.
  • I coloured the cluster using Faber Castell PolyChromos colour pencils.
  • I masked the four sides of the panel using masking paper and sponged distress ink in Scattered Straw, Antique Linen and Tea Dye ink.
  • I removed the mask and added highlights to the coloured cluster using white gel pen.
  • I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set on a strip of white cardstock using black ink.
  • Adhered the sentiment strip to the card panel using foam adhesives.
  • The panel is adhered to cream card base using craft foam.
  • Finally added White Blizzard Nuvo crystal drops to flower centres.

Here are some of the closeup of this card.

My second project is a New Year card using the Starbursts stamp set. This set has gorgeous fireworks images similar to the Crackers stencil. 

  • I colour embossed the largest starburst image on a Navy cardstock panel. I used red, green and yellow embossing powder.
  • Then I gold heat embossed the smaller starburst images on top of the large embossed image as well as on the outer of the cluster.
  • I sponged the edges of this panel with Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot distress inks to add depth.
  • I sprayed the panel with Iridescent shimmer spray.
  • The sentiment is gold heat embossed on stripsof white cardstock and adhered using foam adhesives.
  • Then I added some more sparkle using Gold stickles and Nuvo white blizzard crystal drops.
  • I adhered this panel to a navy card base using craft foam.

Here are the closeups of the card.

My third card is totally random. I wanted to watercolour. So I rummaged through my Mudra stash and picked the Old Macdonald stamp set to play with. I love the farm animals on this stamp set.

  • I used Bristol Smooth cardstock to stamped the images randomly using Versafine Onyx black ink.
  • I coloured the images and the background using Zig clean colour brush pens and added shading using Faber Castell Polychromos colour pencils.
  • I also stamped the sentiment randomly all over the panel.
  • I adhered this panel on to the card base.
  • The sentiment is from the new Christmas Sentiments and Birthday stamp sets.
  • I white heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and trimmed into strips.
  • Adhered the sentiment strips randomly on the centre of the coloured card front using foam adhesives.
  • I added a few white Nuvo Crystal drops to finish the card.
Here are the closeups of the card.

Here are all the Mudra supplies I used to make these cards.

Video: Altering Chipzeb Five Ways - Christmas Gift Tags


Varshitha here... Lets together Welcome back Linda Langes! She is a amazing card maker and shares her knowledge through her videos! So look forward for more videos and card making tutorials from Linda! Here it is her come back post with a great video tutorial!!"

Hi there - it's Linda here. Great to be back with you on the Mudra blog.
Today I'm sharing 5 Christmas Gift Tags that I have created with the fabulous Word Christmas Chipzeb. It is so much fun altering these pieces and you can achieve so many different looks for your projects. Here are my tags -

If you would like to see how I altered each chipboard word please enjoy the video below or 

I also have a Christmas card to share with you today.

For this card, I've used the 'Christmas Poinsettia' stamp set, the Snowflakes Stencil and Christmas Chipzeb for my sentiment.

*Create glistening snowflakes on the card front using the fabulous Snowflakes Stencil with glimmer paste 
*Add a cluster of poinsettia from the Christmas Poinsettia stamp set -stamped on patterned paper, coloured with Copics and fussy cut. 
*Adhere 'Merry Christmas' Chipzeb sentiment from Christmas set. 
*Embellish with Mudra Gold Sequins.

For my card I left the Chipzeb plain - I considered inking it red or green and adding Glossy Accents for added shine and dimension but went for simple instead. Which one do you think you would have chosen?

I've had so much fun playing with these gorgeous new Mudra products for my projects today. All Mudra supplies are linked below. I certainly enjoy Christmas crafting - such a wonderful time of the year!
