Devika Gujral here, l Creative Designer @craftyscrappersWish you a very Happy Dusherra and sending you Durga puja wishes 🙂
Hope you all had fantastic festivals 😀
Diwali fever is on..so today I have a pretty Diwlai themed colorful card for you.
To create my Diwali themed card i have used,
craftyscrappers Premium white cardstock
Craftyscrappers Premium white cardstock is an amazing cardstock, its smooth, its the right thickness and overall it takes in watercolors superbly.
Earlier in one of my video tutorial, i did mention how it takes up the shimmer sprays and blends them evenly.
Though the cardstock is around 180-200gsm in thickness its just so perfect for stamp coloring.
even the outline stamping gives a crisp image on that.
i recommend this cardstock to all of you, if you want the colors to blend in and give a smooth effect, you should try this paper out 🙂
along with Craftyscrappers stampset, SHUBH DEEPAWALI
This stamp set is so so pretty and traditional, especially the image is a perfect depiction of the auspicious festival of Deepawali, and the sentiments are just beyond perfect.
There are so many possibilities to use this particular stamp sets to create endless cards and tags.
its just awesome!

So this is my Diwali themed card
A BRIEF TUTORIAL
- Take a piece of Craftyscrappers: Premium White Cardstockand cut it to the desired size.
- Take the Distress inks and create a background by blending them with the blending tool.
- As I wmated to use “Diwali themed colours,” I started off with Spiced Mermalde Distress Ink at the bottom and then layered Wilted Violet, Picked Rashberry and Candid Apple..covering each portion at a time making sure to overlap all the colours until I was happy with it.
- Spintz some water on it and immediately lift it with a paper towel to get the bleached effect.
- Stamp the Lantern image from the “SHUBHDEEPAWALI ” stamp set on a masking sheet.
- Stamp the Lantern image using Black Archival ink on the coloured background.
- Mask this stamped image and stamp the lantern image again…this way you will get overlapping and natural, free flowing look of the lanterns..
- Repeat this step till you cover the entire portion.
- Stamp the sentiment at the bottom with Black Archival ink.
- Foam mount the image on a piece of one folded white cardstock and your Diwali card is ready.
