Shine Brightly

Hello Friends!! I am back with a card share..

Today I have used The Firmament digital kit. These digital kits are so fun to use, first you can use it instantly (don’t have to wait for shipment) and second we can adjust the size of the image as needed.

My card theme also fit our current monthly challenge “Encouragement“..

Shine Brightly 1


About the digi stamp, I used Paint to color the solid image to yellow (it comes black) saved it temporarily on my computer then opened it again on my Word Doc and adjusted the size also adjusted the size of the sentiment and printed it out. Now I might have used a very long route, not at all computer savvy.. :/

Once the image is printed out I used circle die to cut it out.

Shine Brightly 2


For the background I used distress inks to imitate kind of a stormy sky.. :) I laid the colors on my craft mat and spritzed good amount of water, then placed water color paper directly on top of the color pool. I played with it till I was happy.

Once the water colored paper was dry I cut it out little smaller than the card base and directly adhered it. The sun and the sentiment is adhered using foam dots. Finally I embellished it with some sequins.

Hope you liked todays card. If you are interested in any of the products I used on my card or any other amazing products from the store, please feel free to use my DT Promo Code: CHITRA15 and you will receive a 15% OFF(Excluding Shipping).

You're a HOOT

Hello Friends!! Welcome to the blog again!! I have a super fun card to share with you all I made for my first inspiration post for a2zscrapbooking blog...


Hoot

For my card background I first masked the circle where I wanted my image to be and then placed my HA’s “Tweed” stencil and added the colors with distress inks and sponge daubers. When I was happy with the colors I then stamped the dots on top of the stencil to give some interest. Then I removed the stencil to reveal the magic (you know how it feels ;) ). The image is from HA’s “Lil Hoot” which is stamped inside the circle with Memento Tuxedo Ink and I colored with copics.

Hoot 1

I have used two different (parts of) sentiment to make my own sentiment, that’s the joy of clear stamps…. right.? Also I have scored the outline of my circle just to define it and added few sequins for embellishment.

Hope you enjoyed todays card. If you are interested in any of the products I used on my card or any other amazing products from the store, please feel free to use my DT Promo Code: CHITRA15 and you will receive a 15% OFF your entire order (Excluding Shipping).
