CrafTangles Inspirations March 2nd post

Hello friends, I am up on hndmd with my inspirations today!

Today I am featuring the Everyday sentiments set. I have used the Sunflowers in different colors here. All the flowers are colored using the Prismacolor pencils.

I have a short video to show some coloring and a project here.

The first card is done with lots of masking and stamping, followed by coloring. I just added some scattered light clouds over the white space, and the sentiment is stamped in black from the same set.

The second card is made using the CrafTangles stencil masks - Circles, I have stamped the sunflower first then masked it and added the circle and inked up using an orange shade ink. Once the coloring was done, I stamped the sentiment to finish off this one layer card.

The last card is stamped on kraft cardstock from Craftangles, and I used a white pigment ink to stamp the flower, and colored using the pencils. I masked the white base and inked up some pink ink to create a border and added the front, the sentiment is stamped on the same kraft strip and added to the card.

     Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your kind feedback. Have a great day!

CrafTangles DT post

Hello friends, Rahmat here and today I am up with a few quick card making ideas using CrafTangles element packs - watercolor florals 2 along with die cuts. These are really super quick cards when you are short on time. These are my inspiration for our monthly challenge which is ANYTHING GOES

Here is a video , do watch and see how these cards were made.

I have used the alphabets die cuts from my stash and did the eclipse technique for all 3 cards.This purple and pink Ombre shades are simply beautiful and chose to do a mothers day card with it , after the eclipse die cut technique, I have used the sentiment from Mom you Rock set and a few jewels to finish it off.

This front is one of my favorite among 3 with the lovely blue florals, this card has already found home in a friend's place, after the die-cutting, I have used the stamped the sentiment from the set Just a Note. The base card was edged with mini ink pad Chipped sapphire by dabbing to create look. Again a few jewels to finish it off.

I made a wedding card because of the fresh florals it seemed perfect for that. Here I have added the base card to the panel before diecutting, as the die cuts were over running the panel, but this has added an interest as well to the card. I have used the sentiment from Indian wedding, I have masked and stamped only part of the sentiment. AS usual jewels to finish it off.

I hope you have liked the inspiration and aren't these some super easy makes? Do try!

Uniko - Brand Ambassador Inspiration

Hello friends, Rahmat here. I am up with a watercolored card today for my inspiration.
Its March and Spring is almost here., so I thought I would share a floral project.

I have used the set Hello Lovely here.

I have a detailed video, yet it is very short. You will be able to see the process of the whole card from start to finish.

Here is the card:
After the watercoloring, I have used a die cut from my stash to create the eclipse, but added the word "happy" with foam adhesive for some dimension.

CrafTangles DT post - shaker cards

Hello friends, I am up on Hndmd using the elements packs to create shakers

The first project is made using the elements pack – Watercolor Florals 2. I simply had used my trimmer and kraft knife to cut out the panel to create the shaker windows here. I had stamped the sentiment from the set – Little Princess. The shaker elements are from the recent release – Golden shimmer stars and Silver shimmer stars.

My second card is also made using an element pack from the above series. I had made a wedding card here using it. The sentiment is from the set – Mr and Mrs. the shaker elements used are Red Shimmer hearts and white matte hearts.

My third card was made many weeks back. It is made using the Tulips from the Just a Note stamp set. I have used a stained glass coloring technique here, the stained glass stamp is from my stash. I have used a shimmery red base here, the sentiment is from the set – Indian wedding. I stamped the border on the base card using the Warli borders set.

Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your kind feedback. Have a great day!

I have tried created a 3d shadow effect with the outlined alphabets here.

A no line watercolored tulips bouquet

Combined many floral stamps here to create this!

I was inspired by Lion because of the sentiment and decided to use same colors

I was inspired by stained glass window here. Colored the blocks using markers and added transparent shimmer to achieve the effect.

I was inspired by the Spring new leaves for this add, once again added the shimmer to the leaves.

I have continued with soft colors same as the one I posted 2 days back.

Finishing this one with a shimmery blue one.
