So I have finally joined the bandwagon of paper-crafters in India although I am most of the time invisible! Its high time I share my experience on cardmaking basics, cardmaking supplies, techniques etc – I mean whatever I know about cardmaking. This post is going to be part 1 of the many more topic specific posts to come. As and when I make new post in the series, I shall tag them here in a list.
Little introduction with types of cardmaking styles
I thought I would just give an introduction about cardmaking by sharing some cards from various blogs and sharing how they were made. That way you could choose your style of cards and buy supplies in accordance to that.
Its been a while since I did a DIY for home so I just decided no matter how much time it was going to take, I am going to finish this once and for all! I am talking about this blue pottery inspired DIY handpainted serving tray tutorial 🙂 I bough this wooden tray couple of months back and it has been collecting dust ever since! I finially got time to make that special decorative tray that I had in mind ( although less attractive :P)!
I hadn’t touched my cardmaking supplies since Christmas and I just felt like I needed a break and craft for a change! I made this “Thinking of you” Friendship card for a friend of mine ( which btw I just posted yesterday!) with hydrangea stamps from the Penny black Flower Festival stamp-set.
Paintings are one single home decor item that can really face lift a home. We can not only fill in empty wall spaces but also depending upon the theme and colors in the painting, we can set a particular mood for the rooms. Well I don’t own any painting as of now but I plan to once I decide on final placement of all my furnitures and household items. Anyways thats when I came across Redmyna.com and they have this totally ammazzzing collection of artworks, paintings and posters. And guess what? You can also rent them and keep swapping with new ones whenever you feel like! Isn’t that great?
