I told you Christmas will not fade away that soon on my blog! I made a couple of Christmas cards this year for my friends and I had shared them on my Instagram last month. I love making handmade cards for special occasions and the only thing I’m doing wrong is that I am not stocking cards of different natures so that I can send them out quickly. Well I bought a multi-stamping tool 3 months back and now I can make multiple cards like a breeze! Okay let me stop blabberring and here are my handmade Christmas cards 2016.
Wish your loved ones with Handmade Diwali Cards this year
This handmade diwali card tutorial requires some cardmaking supplies so if you are not a regular cardmaker, please wait for my future posts where I will be sharing diwali card with simple supplies. Anyways, I do not own any Diwali stamps although there are a couple of pretty ones manufactured by our indian brands like peekaboo designs, Mudra stamps etc. Even there is a new pattern paper branded Nakshathra available on thecraftshop which had Diwali themed papers! I let my creative juices flow ( I didnt even know I had them :P) and came up with some simple cards.
Cards for friends with stamps from Indian brand Peekaboo designs :
I have been doing only cards lately because I made a lotttt for my friends and I am yet to post them ( unfortunately late!). I promise there is only one more cards post ( apart from this one) and then I will move on to some posts on my daughters nursery and more. Todays card is using yet another Indian make stamps – peekaboo designs. If you remember, my previous post was also using another Indian make stamps from Mudra. Just love how affordable cardmaking has become this year, all thanks to new ventures by our crafting ladies 🙂 As always, I tried to play safe by making some simple cards with floral patterns but this time, I put in a lot of efforts in watercoloring phew!
Friends card for my girlfriends using Art impressions laughing stampset
Few weeks back I had shared a set of friends card using our own Indian make mudra stamps and I hope you all like them. This one is another set of friends card using art impressions laughing set and I was a little apprehensive about the card but it turned out to be kind of okay. For the first time I have used pattern paper and I used just a little because there were lot of empty space on the card.
Friends make this world a better place : Mudra stamps
Its always nice to send cards to your friends and surprise them right? Doesnt sending something handmade make them feel even more special instead of texting them happy friendship day? I listed out my firends and decided to send them handmade cards this year so I am on a marathon cardmaking spree! Here is a simple set of cards that I made using our own made in India Mudra stamps. Earlier they used to be known as Varna’s creations and recently they have rebranded as Mudra stamps. In fact last year I did make a christmas card using their stamps if you remember. If you want to buy mudra stamps, do visit mudra stamps blog for realease updates and inspirations 🙂
I seem to be thanking a lot of people these days! After my penny black hyndrangea card I shared last month its a faux watercolored thankyou card this month using altenew painted flowers stampset, altenew purple shades color cubes and altenew label love stamps. Its a total altenew card 😀
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.
