It's a boy...Craft tangles

Hey there!
I have made a card for CraftAdda today using the "It's a Boy " 6"x6" paper pack from Craftangles.

I used the mama elephant stitched die to cut the square cardstock panel and insert the patterned paper. This card is for my neices inlaws(...my neice just had a baby boy).
I kept the sentiment simple(Hero Arts) but added all the relationships I could think of to create the background. The stamps are from Paper Smooches "Kin Folk' stamp set.
I finished the card with enamel dots from Hero Arts.
 I can't wait for them to receive it!!

I hope I have inspired you to make a few cards too using the awesome papers from Craftangles! You can shop for them here!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!

50 and Fabulous

Today I have a CAS card I made using Craft tangles Old Paper paper 6"x6" pack, for my official post at CraftAdda!
This lace patterned paper is my absolute favourite!
I die cut the 50 using Lawn Fawn's Quinns 123 dies and the sentiment die and stamp is from 
Simon Says Stamp.
The sentiment die is cut in black then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. 
Simple yet fun, don't you think?

I created a lower panel of patterned paper using the spellbinders scalloped edge die

Here is my inspiration for you this month.

As I could not find readymade pocket letters as you have seen in the videos above, I decided to make my own.
To make my pocket letter, I started with a 12"x12" sheet of patterned paper from Papericious.
I then measured and cut nine pieces of vellum to fit on this sheet.

I then held them in place with a strip of post it tape and sewed them in place with my sewing machine.

I then used Simon Says Stamp's Stitched rectangles die to die cut the inserts for the pockets.

I then went ahead and decorated each insert with images and sentiments for Mother's day!

This is my first pocket letter and I loved making it!
Here are some more close up images of each insert.

For this card, I used a stampendous cling stamp and watrcoloured with Sakura Koi water colours.

Now for some inspiration...

What do you think of when you think of Summer??
To me summer is mangoes, ice creams, bright flowers and sunny hot days!

To make this card, I created my own patterned paper (on Photoshop) with a mango motif.
I then added the pretty yellow floral paper from Doodlebug designs along with the polaroid die cut  (Lawn Fawn), the sun die cut (Sizzix) and the goggles die cut (Impression Obsession).
I finished the card with a heat embossed sentiment on Vellum from Paper Smooches.

For this tag, I die cut two popsicles (Scrapping cottage) and watercoloured them in mango and raspberry flavours!
I stamped ice cubes (PTI) on the tag and adhered the popsicles with foam tape.
I finished the tag with pink and orange bakers twine.
Doesn't really need a sentiment no?


To inspire you some more, this month the fabulous  Ujjwal Gupta is in the house as guest designer for our challenge! 
Those of you who follow her may know her fabulous work! 
It is truly an honour to have here  to inspire us this month!

About Me

I am Ujjwal, a stay at home mum and artist and have been in the blog world, creating and sharing and hopefully inspiring for more than 6 years now.
I love clean and simple designs that pack a punch.
I am excited today to be guest designing here, it is such an honour!

It's no secret that I adore Lawn Fawn stamps and I thought 'Cruising through life" stamp set was perfect to create a lovely sunny day in the park.

The sun and the clouds are from Jane's Doodles Seamus Stamp Set and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. I white heat embossed all the elements on Canson Watercolour Paper and then coloured with distress inks and a waterbrush.

Now what's summer without some lemonade..right?
For the tag, I used another Lawn Fawn mini stamp set called "Make Lemonade". I stamped the imae on Canson Watercolour paper and coloured them using Faber Castell Markers. I fussy cut the lemon and popped it up using some foam tape. 
For the sentiment, I combined two different stamps-Lawn Fawn Best Pun ever and Hero Arts Magical Castle. I also lightly inked the edges using some crushed olive distress ink and a sponge dauber and tied some jute string.

I hope you like the projects I have created and feel inspired to play along!


As always, we have some fabulous sponsors lined up for this month.
