#JYOTIISINSPIREDBYPINTEREST Inspiration 2

card made using spellbinders dies

Hello and welcome.

I have recently started this series of card-making challenge I call Jyoti is inspired by Pinterest on Instagram. Where I pick a picture I like from Pinterest and try to recreate that in the form of a handmade greeting card using the supplies I already own.

I loved the response I received from the 1st challenge. Only a few of my crafty friends on Instagram participated in my fun journey of inspiration and crated their version of cards from my Inspiration. But I thank each of you who even thought that was a fun idea.

I am presenting my second challenge in this series.

Here’s my Card for today

Actually I have two cards I created with one watercolor background.

Inspiration:

The inspiration picture I picked for this challegne that I posted on my Instagram story is:

For this card I used Prima watercolors on a Strathmore watercolor paper panel using blues and greens. Layered the watercolors with splatters and random dots. Dried each layer completely before I proceeded with another layer on top. Finally I was happy with the result. Then I picked my leaf dies from Spellbinders Small and Large Dies of the Month. Arranged them on the watercolorded panel and cut it out using the Spellbinders Platinum Die Cutting Machine.

This first card is the negative piece after die cutting the leaves out of it. I didn’t want it to go to waste. So I cut it with a stitched rectange die and turned it into a card. It turned out beautiful.

For the second card I arranged the die cut leaves on a 4 and a quarter by 5 and a half inches panel of navy card-stock from recollection.

I loved how this turned out. As each leaf is different in color from each other it looks more organic. I loved how the die cuts just pop on the navy card-stock.

I did not put any sentiments or any embellishments on these cards. Because I like when you can add sentiments on cards as you need them.

Finally these panels are attached to an A2 size top folding card bases make with Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock.

If you guys want to participate in my challenge please tag me in the social media. I would highly appreciate it.

Christmas Card Using Spellbinders dies

Hello Everyone! Hope you’re doing great. Today’s card features the Spellbinders’ large die of the month for the month of November,2018.

Here’s my card for today.

spellbinder's die

The Focal Point:

I only used one out of the set of amazing dies that came in my November 2018 large die of the month subscription. This die cuts the window for the Christmas tree with the garland around it and Christmas ornaments. The sparkly green paper backing is just so pretty. And the red rhinestones for the ornaments add extra touch to the otherwise clean and simple Christmas card.

The card base is 110 lb. heavyweight card stock. The top panel is mounted on foam tapes for extra dimension.

Sentiment:

The sentiment on this card is from old Simon Says Stamp stamp set I bought with one of their card kits. This is stamped with Versamark ink and embossed using gold glitter embossing powder.

The Card Base:

The card base is again heavyweight card stock cut to 5 and a half by 8 and a half and scored to make a standard A2 size card.
