Okay… So a few days back, a dear friend of mine, requested for some inspirations on some of our stamp sets, but due to time and bad health i wasn’t getting enough time to create something..
On the other hands, even our wonderful DTs were full with inspiration dead lines for our ongoing challenge… so burdening them with more inspirations was injustice.
so i took a day off from work and tried my hands on some of the techniques (techniques are taught by my dear friends and our talented Dts.. thankyou all for that! really appreciate you guys.. !!!)
So this is for you… hope you all like them!

 

I have used One particular technique from each of my dear friends and Dts to create my cards.
(You all may check their awesome tutorials posts and videos,
here at the blog as well as their blogs/Instagram/pinterest and Youtube to create your own. )

So this is my First Card , and for this i have used the stamp set,”Hey chick!
designed by: Shobha Aggarwal along with the stamp sets, “Being Extraordinary” for the beautiful sentiment and the cute star balloons are from the stamp set, “Honey-Bunny“.

(This card was inspired by Aditi and Sunila Mahajan’s Distressing techniques.)

For my Second Card , i have used the stamp set,” Gator wishes” along with the stamp sets, ” HONEY-BUNNY“, “Beary special day” ” Ewe-r-speacial” and “Hippo wishes to u.”
i wanted to create a scene where all critters were on the way to wish the recipient.
i didn’t add any sentiment to it, because i wanted the sentiment to be inside the card.

A brief tutorial on how i made this:

  • applied some red acrylic paint on a portion and then used shimmer paste
    along with stencil.
  • Both paste and stencil are from Craftyscrappers.
  • In the center I used a hand painted image and stuck mdf ornate around.
  • Rest of the flowers are all stuck with the help of silicon glue.
