#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.

#JYOTIISINSPIREDBYPINTEREST Inspiration 1

Hello Everyone!

Few days ago I posted on my Instagram Story a floral pattern image I picked from Pinterest. I took that as an inspiration for my card. I challenged myself to create a card like the inspiration picture. Using the supplies I already own.

My Inspiration for Today:

Most of the times I look up on Pinterest for ideas for my cards anyway. I really liked this picture i found. Here is the picture:

I really liked the yellow and shades of brown on this picture. So I tried to crate a card similar to this.

Here is my card for today:

Altenew Hibiscus Bouquet

The Focal Image:

For my card I used the Stamp set called Hibiscus Bouquet from Altenew. Stamped the outline images on a black piece of card stock with Versamark Watermark Ink. Versamark is a clear sticky ink. I colored the images using Faber Castell Polychromos in Yellow, Brown and Grey to somewhat match my inspiration picture. I like to color the images before embossing if I am using pencil colors. Then stamped and embossed the images again with Detail white embossing powder from Wow.

I cut out the images using scissors as I didn’t own the coordinating dies for this particular stamp set. Since these are large images it wasn’t hard to cut out the images using scissors.

Then I arranged the images on a black card stock panel of 4 and a quarter by 5 and a half inches.

The Sentiment:

Stamped the sentiment You are amazing on a scrap piece of cardstock with versamark ink and embossed using the white embossing powder again. Foam mounted the sentiment strip to the right hand bottom corner.

Embellished the card using some transparent light grey sequins i had lying in my stash adhered with Matte Medium.

Card Challenge

I really liked how my card turned out. Hope you guys will give it a try too. If you do so please tag me on social media so I can see what you come up with.

Hugs

Jyoti
