'Bundle of joy' - Baby cards

Hey everyone,

Welcome back... This is DT Priyadarshini here today with baby cards. I have three cards with different backgrounds and they all have embossing. It is always fun to have make your own background for cards using stencil and inks. 


Card 1 - It's a boy


To make this card, I first did stenciling using Dot Illusion stencil. 
I used, versamark ink since I wanted to do heat embossing. 
While the versamark is still wet, I added silver embossing powder and heat set it. 
Since heat embossing resists inking, I did inking using Aqua blue ink and turquoise. I kept the centre of the card light and darker towards to edges. 
I stamped the cute show image from It's a boy stamp set along with some stars and sentiment. 
After colouring the image, I fuzzy cut it and added a black strip to the card and finished it by adding the sentiment and stars. 



Card 2 - It's a girl


For my second card, I used checkered stencil and light pink ink. 
To make the edges, a little darker, I added hot pink ink
I stamped the shoe image and sentiment from It's a girl stamp set. I coloured and fuzzy cut the image and kept it aside. 
I die cut a black circle, I stenciled and heat embossed using silver embossing powder. The stencil used is Moroccan tiles.
I added the image on the embossed circle and finished the card with a sentiment. 



Card 3 - Bundle of joy


For the last card, first, I embossed stars using gold embossing powder and circle using silver powder. 
Then inked the background using, lawn green and emerald green ink. 
I stamped a sleeping baby image from Make a wish set and added that to the card.
I used a sentiment from the same set along with rattle image. 



Hope you all liked the cards.. Do check out blog for more inspiration from our design team.

7 Embellishments Using Tubby Craft Number Stamps by Swati

Hi Guys!!

Hope you are are doing good and are healthy.

Today I will be sharing a very fun tutorial of a project that can be used in many ways.

We'll be making embellishments using Tubby Craft Number stamps. We'll make not 1 but 7 different embellishments.


Let's get right into it. :)

Step-by-step process:
1. Take your first stamp 'One Fun' and mount it to the acrylic block. 

2. Stamp it using Waterproof ink pad on a watercolour paper.

3. Repeat the same for the other stamp sets: 'Looking Three', 'Jiving Five', 'Silly Six', 'Seven Heaven', 'Great Eight' and 'Nine World'.

4. Once all the images are stamped on a watercolour paper, you can use any colouring medium to colour the images. If you are using Alcohol-based markers then stamp using Tubby Craft Black ink pad.
I used Watercolors as I am very comfortable with them. Use any brand of watercolours to colour the images.
5. After colouring them, fussy cut them as precisely as possible.
6. Now I have 7 stamped, coloured and cut images of the Numbers.
7. After its, I check my stash and take out 7 pieces of coloured cardstock which colour coordinate with my coloured images.
8. I use a die-cutting machine and cut out that coloured cardstock into a circle and tag shapes.
9. Now its time to place my sentiments. I stamp them with Versamark ink on stripes of black cardstock and then heat emboss it using white embossing powder.
Then I heat set them using my Heat gun.
10. Then I assembled all the coloured cardstock and looked which ones will go best with which numbers. You have to work out your creative muscles here. :)
11. After you are happy with the designs, go ahead and stick everything together.
12. Use foam tape for giving dimension to the tags.
13. Punch a hole for the threads on the cardstock and use different colour ribbons and twines and thread them through the hole.
14. Check out all my images here for inspiration and I am sure you'll get the process.

Unicorn Card and Baby Elephant Tag


Hello Everyone and Welcome Back!!
Today I am sharing a pretty Unicorn card. This one uses the Unicorn Dream stamp set by Tubby Craft.. I stamped my images on White Card stock with Tubby Craft JET BLACK Ink. I used my MISTI Stamping Tool so I could get my images nice and dark. I used circle die to die cut circle in the back ground. I made an inky background using the Tubby Craft Inks with Scallop Cloud stencil by Tubby Craft. I used scissors to fussy cut the unicorn. I colored the unicorn using my water colors .I added some little enamel dots on background to finish. I had so much fun making this pretty card .

I also made a Tag I using Baby Elephant Stamp set a while back. I seriously think that this Baby Elephant set is the cutest things ever. I simply placed the fussy cut stamped image on an intricate die cut background. Later I glued the "Thanks"die cut on the Tag which I coloured using Tubby Craft Inks.
