#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.

Altenew Inspiration Challenge August 2018

Hello, everyone. Thank you for stopping by. Today I am presenting my card I made to participate in the Altenew Inspiration Challenge August 2018.

My busy work schedule hasn’t stopped me from participating in the challenge this month because I just love the color combination. I had recently ordered some products from Altenew and hadn’t had a chance to play with some of them yet.

Here’s my card for today.

Altenew Perfectly Perfect

What Inspired me:

This is the picture form the inspiration post on Altenew Blog that inspired me to create my card.

How I made it:

I’ve been wanting to play with my new stamp set from Altenew called Perfectly Perfect. This stamp set is so pretty. The flower and leaves images in this stamp set are just outlined images. I love to use the outline images to stamp and color.

I stamped all the flower images and the leaves images on a watercolor paper with Versamark. Versamark is a sticky clear ink which helps the embossing powder to stick on it so I can heat set it using my heat tool to get the embossed image. I used White embossing powder.

Then the images were watercolored using the watercolor palette from  Prima Watercolors in the colors Tropical that I had bought on Amazon. I had in my mind the vision of blue flowers and green leaves on a yellow background.

Altenew Perfectly perfectThe Background:

Created the background on a white panel of cardstock sized 4 inches by 5 and a 1/4 inches in dimension. Used the yellow color from the same watercolor palette using the ink-smooshing technique. This technique is very popular these days to create a messy watercolor background.

Arranged the flowers and the leaves on the top left corner of the panel.  Some flowers were adhered directly using glue whereas some were added on a foam tape to create dimension.

The Sentiment:

Took a strip of black cardstock from my scrap stash, stamped it with two of the sentiments from the stamp set to make it look like one with Versamark ink. Embossed with white embossing powder and adhered using foam tape.

So here is my final card.

 I just loved how it turned out. Let me know what you guys think about it in the comments section down below.

I have linked all the products  I used in the affiliated links just in case if you guys are interested in buying them please do so through these affiliated links so I get a certain percentage of the sale without an extra cost to you. I appreciate the support.

Hugs

Altenew January 2018 Inspiration Challenge

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great new year so far. I have always loved Altenew stamps and dies and I often visit their blog which is always so inspiring.

I came across this Altenew January 2018 Inspiration Challenge by Erum Tasneem. I loved the idea of a bright color palette and had to implement it. Here’s the inspiration picture from the post.

Altenew January 2018 Inspiration Challenge

Orange and yellow colors always make me smile — it reminds me of sunshine after a rainy day. Besides, pink is my favorite color. So, because I wanted to use these colors, I decided to participate in the challenge.

I had to make two cards because my creative mind couldn’t just settle on one out of the many background ideas that were coming to me.

Here’s my take on this challenge:


My cards feature the Fantasy Floral Die from  Altenew. I used pink, orange, and yellow colors from the inspiration picture and used it on the background for the first card using Hexagon Dies from My Favorite Things. For the second card I used the tag dies that I bought online on some random website.

The white panel I used was cut from a Mama Elephant Creative Cuts die.

I used Altenew Fantasy Floral Die to cut the flowers for the main focal image. I used three different shades of grey for the flower on the bottom to create a shadow effect under the colorful flower created with the inspired colors.

I adhered the layers of the flower slightly offsetting from each other intentionally because I think this flower looks much better and fuller this way. Then, the flowers were popped up on foam tapes for extra dimension.

The sentiment is from the Adore You Stamp Set from Altenew. For the final touch I embellished these cards with coral and matte gray sequins.

I hope you will like these cards that I have created for the challenge. Please take some time to leave a comment. I love hearing from you all.

Thank you,

Jyoti
