Redesign Nameplate

Hello guys
Today I have a nameplate to share with you all. I made this for my sister's new house and we has VastuPooja yest. I made it to match the decor in her house and I am glad she liked it.
I made this from scratch and the base is a combination of chipboard and sunboard. To add a little texture, stencils and clay pieces were used. I gave it a more stone carved look by using black and white gesso, Impasto paints and gold acrylic paint. To give it a little depth, I have also used the Vintage Gold wax in a few places. The products used are from Finnabair and ItsyBitsy.

I am putting this up at the following blog challenges:
  1. More mixed Media Challenge - Anything Goes Black
  2. Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge #55 - Anything Goes

Thank you for stopping by..Hugs.

How to make Handmade Christmas Cards - Tutorial | DIY

Hey guys
Today I have a tutorial to make Christmas cards.....which are in non traditional colors. I wanted to give this feel of snow and so I have used really pastel shades of Blue, lilac and grey but I gave into the feel of Christmas and used Gold, green and little silver sparke on my snowflake.
 These are standard A7 cards and I have used stamps from Mudra craft for this project. I started with watercolor panels and clear heat embossed snowflakes in 3 sizes. Then, I ink blended using Distress inks to get this soft snow look...I didnt want to use traditional Christmas colors but yet I used green for the last card.
 Once I was happy with my panels, I assembeled it on my card base along with some gold glitter paper to give it a touch of whimsy. The sentiment used is also from Mudra craft which I gold heat embossed on vellum.....this allows me to see the background through it ....those snowflakes look so fun through he vellum. I also added a white wax cord in the front with a small bow to add a little extra to the front.
 Once, my card front was ready, I dressed the inside as well with a similar panel design and stamped the back of the card with a sentiment that says "Handmade just for you"....
 I made my own grey envelops and dressed them up as well using the scrap strips and white heat embossing snowflakes....make it look so special. I never forget to dress my envelopes up whenever I make cards. I finished it all with some silver sequins in the center of snowflakes.
I have a full tutorial and I encourage you to watch this if you want to know how I made these cards.
