Guest Post for Tubby Crafts - 1

Hello Friends,

Today I am guest designing at Tubby Crafts and here are a  coupl of cards made using the stamp set - Giraffe Love.


So here is my first card-



I  created a blended background using 3 inks from Tubby Craft - Imperial red, Lemon Yellow and Sapphire blue. I blended red and yellow to create orange and Yellow and blue to create green. I have used Brustro water color paper and these inks blend so well on it.
I stamped a giraffe behind another using masking technique and colored the images using copic markers.
Then I created cascading heart layers and finally added the sentiment, also from the same stamp set.

My second card is a square card

I made it using the heart die cut which was a left over from my first card. The adorable giraffe image is colored using copics. 

I added the sentiment around the edges of the squares. The red hearts are stamped with Imperial red ink.

And here are both the cards together-

Here are the supplies used-

I hope you liked my cards. I will be back next Friday with some more inspirations.

Love,

Winnie and Walter's rerun 28

Hey Friends,
Sumitting a last minute entry for Winnie and Walter's rerun challenge No. 28.
This month's rerun featured my favorite stamp set - Welcome to the family and I had to participate. I had an idea of what I wanted to make but kept procrastinating. Yesterday when I checked I saw it was just 13 hrs until the challenge closed and so O decided to make a card early morning.
Here is my card -


Hope you liked it.

Love,

Neat & Tangled Throwdown - Pirate Party!!


Hello Mateys!

How are you doing? I was on a crafting break after the huge crafting marathon for Winnie and Walter's 4th birthday bash challenges. And now I am back with another BIG project for the Neat and Tangled throwdown  - Party Ensemble Challenge.



For this challenge I decided to go with the pirate party theme. I had the Neat and Tangled stamp set - Yo ho ho which I was hoarding for long and thought this was a perfect time to put it to use.
Yo Ho Ho

So here are all the things I made -



And before I go on with the details, let me warn you. This is going to be a big post with loads of pictures.

1) Party Invite:
The first thing I made for this challenge was a treasure map party invite. I tore the edges of paper  and gave it a old look using distress inks. Then I stamped some images and sentiments in black ink. Then I added some highlights using white and black gel pen and some coloring with brown copic markers.




2) Straw Embellishments:


3) Food Tents:
Do look out for the pirate food names in the  pics below :)

And here is some delicious pirate food -




4) Cupcake toppers:
 A party wouldn't be complete without cupcake toppers. So here are some -


4) Cupcake Liners: When I was about to do the setup for taking pictures, 2 hours short of the challenge deadline, I realized that the cupcake liners were pink and didn't go well with the pirate theme. Hence I quickly created 2 cupcake liners on kraft paper by stamping the parrot and ship stamps in brown ink. I highlighted part of the images with white gel pen and outlined the skull on flag with black pen.






5) Boat Sails as Fruit toppers:
I wanted to make boats out of melon pieces. So I made some Sail toppers. I added the parrot and the cat with binoculars on them.


And here are the pirate ships -

6) Water bottle and juice bottle labels:
For the water bottle labels, I created a "treasure Map" background with white gel pen.




7) Favor boxes and tags:
Finally I created the favor boxes with a port hole-

And here is another pic of everything together - ARRRRR... Enjoy the Party!


I hope you liked it all. I had loads of fun creating it. But I am disappointed with he photography as I hardly had a couple of hours before the challenge closed to take and edit good pictures. Hope I take this as a lesson and improve upon the timeline next time.

Love,
Piyu
