Guest Design Post (Cardmaking) by Preeti Datta

Hello Dear Crafty Friends!!

Firstly, I'd like to wish everyone a 
Merry & Warm Christmas!! Blessings to you and your loved ones :)

I'd like to thank Shruti, the wonderful owner of Tubby Craft for inviting me to Guest Design. 
I enjoyed working with the beautiful stamps. 
I have created 4 cards today.
Most of these cards are in the CAS or Clean & Simple Style of Cardmaking.
There is also a photo tutorial for one of the CAS (clean & simple) cards, if you'd like to recreate it. 

1. CAS Card: Thanks a ton 

Photo Tutorial for CAS Card 1: 

1. Used the Tubby Craft Baby Elephant Stamp 





2. CAS Card: Penguin Christmas Wishes 


For this CAS card, I stamped the Penguin from the Tubby Craft Penguin Love Stamp Set onto Canson Watercolor paper, colored it with prisma color pencils and then fussy cut the image. Further, stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, on the kraft cardbase and foam mounted the image. Then added a few snow-like dots with a white gel pen. In the end, added a few silver sequins & silver stickles. 

3. Floral Card with Ink Smooshing Technique


Stamped the floral arrangement from the Tubby Craft Floral Invitation Stamp onto Canson Watercolor Paper and then smooshed on blue and green color inks (from zig markers) using a piece of acetate onto the paper, then die cut it with a scalloped rectangle die. This panel was adhered to a black card base and a die cut word was added as the sentiment. To create the shadow effect, a black die cut was adhered below the white die cut word. 

4. CAS One Layer Card- Floral Invitation


Stamped the floral arrangement & sentiment from the Tubby Craft Floral Invitation Stamp onto a black card base using versamark ink and heat embossed in white using Ranger's super fine white embossing powder and heat tool. Then lightly colored the images with prismacolor pencils.
