Happy Wedding!

Today I am sharing a card, inspired by the Altenew June challenge image (you can find the image at the bottom of the post.)
The challenge required a white on white focal point; so I started by embossing a bunch of white roses using the Vintage Roses stamp set, on to white cardstock. Then, I added gradient to the background using Altenew Inks (Grapevine, Ruby Red) and Distress Ink (Antique Linen). Added layers of white embossed, and plain white diecut vellum to the embossed bunch, along with a stamped sentiment.

June 2017 Inspiration Challenge - White on White Focal Point

Have a great day, and happy crafting!

Shaker Card Tutorial: Eid Mubarak!

Eid Mubarak! Wishing you and all your loved ones a joyous Eid. 

On this blessed day, I have a bright shaker card tutorial to share. I made this specially for Eid, and put together a video tutorial just for YOU! (Its Eidi, from me to you .)

I basically die cut the crescent from the top layer, then heat embossed the stars in gold, using the Simon Says Stamp "Lots of Stars", and the sentiment from Altenew "Eid Greetings" stamp set. Next I inked the card using distress inks (Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed and Seedless Preserves), created the shaker pocket and adhered it to the base card. You can view the entire process in the video tutorial above.   

I added micro beads instead of sequence, because of the intricate diecut.

Happy Crafting!

Fun Eidi Envelopes

Every Eid I try and come up with something fun, for family. (And that is actually how my little handmade crafts business evolved, but we will talk about that some other day). So, in 2012 I made these super fun and interactive envelopes for my nephews, on eid.

I wanted the envelopes to be really vibrant, colorful, and desi. So I moved forward with navy blue, bright Red, Orange, Teal, and Yellow.

I used a lot of die cuts on this. To form the moon, I die cut a scalloped circle, punched out the center, and layered it to reveal a crescent, which I highlighted using a white pen.

The fun and interactive bit was, that upon pulling the red tab, the eidi slides out on the other side.
The kids loved them!

These were pretty unusual back then, and so were a big hit. Made something a little more mature for weddings too!

Hope this inspires you make something fun for the kids this Eid!
Happy Crafting
