Create a Night Scene - 1 Background 3 Completly Different Cards

Hello Crafty Friends,

Its me again..
How are you doing? I guess you all will be busy, as Diwali as just in the corner. HAPPY DIWALI in advance, have a Prosperous Diwali.

Now for the cards. Today I felt like creating the sky, that's similar to the Diwali Night - all dark but still full of lights (I hope you guys understand what I'm trying to say) And to add a twist I used few monsters to create Montrous scene using MONTROUS Stamp Set.
These really made some awesome Birthday cards.

I'm sure you guys are cravng for some close-ups. These actually turned out pretty good. Loved each card and you will see, each card is completely different in style. 

First card, where you can see the whole night scene - a monster with a bunch of balloons hanging from a rocket. I know this is what monster suppose to do - impossible. I love love love this scene and I smile everytime I see this card. And the face of the monster makes it look like its been dragged by the rocket - a perfect fit for this card..

My next card is a Shaker card, I used the large die from Scalloped Rectangle Die Set. And used the scallop frame to create the well for my shaker. Its quite thin frame but the used my foam tape and trimmed it to 1/4th size, to fit the frame and create the shaker.

For my third and last card here, I used the large die from Scalloped Circle Die Set but  didn't use the scallop frame that cuts along with the circle. I really liked the simple but still classy look of this card. Its just great.

So now without taking much of your time let me share the video tutorial with you guys.

Materials Used :-

Have a Great Day...

Lots of gold and some glitter - October Release Inspiration

Hello everyone! It's Juhi with my second post for October. My first card is a birthday card for my daughter who is turning 5 in December.
Watercolor card with Pee-a-boo stamps and Dies by Juhi
To created the watercolor background, I cut out the number dies on masking paper and stuck them randomly on watercolor paper, leaving some space in the middle for the number '5'.
I then painted the background in pink and orange Gansai Tambi watercolors.
I peeled off the digits once the watercolor dried, some paint did seep under the digits giving the background a beautiful watercolor wash effect! I finally cut out the '5' in gold and stuck it along with some gold thread and sequins and also heat embossed the sentiment in gold.
I hope my daughter likes the card :)

I followed exactly the same process to make the watercolor background of this Thank you card.

Don't you just love the gold against the turquoise? I just love how this one turned out!

I used my favorite "Border Frenzy" die from the month's release. I just can't get enough of this how it lets you add interest without extra bulk, perfect for CAS cards.
I created the background by stamping the broad stripes from the "It's Plaid Time" set in white followed by red inks. I then added the fancy stitches with the "Border Frenzy" die.
For the glitter heart I used the "Shaker Love" Die.
Well that's it from me for now, I hope you find inspiration in my projects! Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Supplies Used:

Cards using October release

Hello Friends Pooja here with second batch of inspirations for this month. I have gone soft and subtle with first card.The background is created using beaded Stencil and layered stitched bubble die-cut over it.

 The butterflies are from Doodled Butterfly set and so is the sentiment.

For my next card I used the negative of fern flourish die (By now you must have known I love using negative of die-cuts more than the positives).

 Its a clear shaker card. I have stitched two acetate sheets together with some sequins sandwiched between them. You can see some the sequins inside the ferns in this picture

Third and the final card for October is simplest.Created the texture by applying texture paste through abstract triangles stencil.

I wanted all the focus to be on fern die-cut so kept the design very clean.The sentiment is from Stringy text set.

I hope you enjoyed the post and loved my cards .
