#ReusewithKrafttime Day 1- Popsicle Bookmarks

Image
Hey all!
It is Day 1 of my challenge and I am inspired! Looking forward to seeing all your creations too.

Here is what I have for today. I got these popsicle sticks from Itsy Bitsy, guess 4 years back and made some quilled bookmarks then, but after that it has been sadly ignored :(

So I took them out, stamped some small images and colored them using sketch pens. I then punched them out of 1" circle punch and adhered them to 2" scallop die cuts. Finally Added them on to the popsicles!

Here are the pics from my day #1 of " Use your Craft Stash" challenge






Here is what I created 4 years back.


Let me know how it is guys! And do play along with your friends.

30 Days to use your stash!

Hey all!!!

How many of you are guilty of purchasing craft supplies when you have remaining supplies and things that are lying unused for a long time. I am!!!
I just made a purchase which let me feel all guilty of all those money spent in buying supplies but left unused :(
So.....

Play along and tag your friends to reuse too!

Planning to reuse with all my might!

Dear Brother...

Hey all,
I am posting a couple date late of Raksha Bandan. For those who are not aware of it, Raksha Bandan is a festival celebrated in India which glorifies the love and bond between a brother and sister. It does not restrict to a blood relationship, but anyone who has shown the love and respect for a girl in a brotherly fashion is honoured o  this day.
Usually the girl ties a 'Rakhi", a thread on the boy's hand seeking protection and in turn gets some gifts fro the brother.




I have made a card using the Raksha Bandan stamp set from the Craftyscrappers bundle of stamps. Since I wanted it to have a traditional look I went for stamping the feather in multi colors using memento inks and heat embossed the sentiment using clear embossing powder and versafine ink. I left the rakhi to be plain as i liked the look better this way.
The cover is just made up of watercolored background and I have hand-lettered the word 'brother'.
Let me know what you think of this guys.

SunBurst Making Rainbow card

Image
Hi all!
I am sharing a simple card today that I made using some masking and water coloring techniques over the stamps.

First I masked off half f the card vertically and added washi tapes in a sunburst pattern. i added distress and memento inks and sponged the areas to give a rainbow effect. Once this was done , in the clear space i stamped some open and closed umbrellas and colored them using watercolors. Finally added a sun pee[ing behind the clouds and added the sentiment.

O-Range!!! Colorful jewellery

Image
Hi all!
I am sharing yet another handmade jewellery today. I have a bracelet , earring and a neckpiece to share, but they are for 3 different people and hence the difference in coordination. The first one is a thick cord type neckpiece which is bright orange in color and has matching beaded tones. It has a bit of funky look with all the danglers around. It could make a great set if you are pairing it up with a plain cotton saree!.


The next is a bracelet for a little one. I love the multi-color beads. They are so cool looking esp for kids.

The earring is a simple one with glass beads and pearls locking a dumbell in place. It looks  really cool when you wear it . Trust me!


Let me know what you think guys!

Hi Pals!
I am here today sharing a uber cute bracelet I made for a little girl. I am getting back to jewellery making after ages and it feels so refreshing.
This is a simple yet classy bracelet that can be worn with casual dresses or traditional indian outfits like a 'pattupavadai'. It is made up of 8 mm ruby red crackled glass beads and 4mm beads with other basic embellis.


Hope you like it!

Hugs

Leafy Summer Card

Image
Hey there!!! A quick post to share one of the cards I made using a couple of leafy stamps. I have created a staggered layer card today. Here it is first!




I took a card base of 4X6 and then took 3 more peices of card stock that measured 3.5X5.5, 3X5, 2.5X4.5 and layered it on top of each other by placing them center aligned.

Then I repeatedly stamped two leaf stamps all over the 4 layers making sure to catch each layer. Then I carefully removed the layers and mounted it onto Black CS of coordinating sizes. This gave a staggered layering effect!

FOr the sentiment I have used Peek-a-boo Designs 'Chirping away' , Wishing you a sunny day stamp and adhered it using foam tapes.

Let me know how you guys liked it!

Mommy to be!

Hi, Pals!
First up, wishing you a very happy friendship day and hope everyone had a great time. Today I am sharing a quick card that I made . I just randomly picked up a stamp set and went crazy with it. Here it is first.


I stamped the focal image on the centre of the card and added all the text sentiments around it to create a text background. The stamp set is from Craftscrappers owned by Konica Das! Do check out the wonderful and affordable collection that she has.

I have colored the entire focal image using plain color pencils. For the background I created a two tone background in pink and blue to help keep the gender surprise for the mommy. I have given random strokes to keep the background a bit uneven. I think I like this better than a clean one!!

Here is another closer look.


Here is the stampset that I have used.

Hi all,
 I have a quick post today and sharing one of my favourites so far! I recently hauled a lattice die cut from Peek-a-boo designs and was super excited when I received it. THe moment I got it I wanted to try it on a project immediately.  Here it is!


I cut the pattern on a kraft CS and saved those tiny pieces for another project! They are too cute an embellishment to lose. I then stamped the sentiment , also from Peek-a-boo, on to another kraft CS with versafine black ink and highlighted the border using a silver gel pen. I added handmade flowers as embellishment in 3 colors yellow, blue and red.

Here is another close up. What do you all think?

Layered stamping!

Hi, Friends!

It is time to share a new project this week and I recently spent on a huge crafty haul!! So there are many more posts to come on the way! Yay!!




Today I have made my first ever layering stamp card! This is the '' stamp set designed by 'Monica Das' and the stamp is from Konica's https://www.facebook.com/konica.konshttps://www.facebook.com/konica.kons. Be sure to checkout their page for lots and lots of awesome stamps that are completely designed by very own peoplTheTHe stamps come in 3 sizes and the one that I have used today is a 5X5 variation.

THere are 3 sizes of roses and I have used all 3 here. Not bad for a first try i guess . What do you think!
I have used Mememto inks for the card and mounted it onto a kraft CS. I think the kraft compliments the colors pretty well.

 Here are a couple more shots.
