Mandala Stencil cards

Hey everyone!
Vinita here Today!

Have you seen the new 3D stencils, new critter sheets ( all are my favorites now)  and bold Word Chiplets September release by DCAM!
Lots of amazing NEW products to be having fun with and I have some new oxide inks in the house! I had a lot of fun with my new stencil and have 2 cards to share with you all! A good combination for sure as the oxide inks blend so very well. The stencils are the focus on Today's cards.

 I have two techniques to share with you using the same Mandala stencil!!
First, create your own patterned paper with stencils.

Here are a few steps for how I created my background.
I used the 8"x8" stencil to create my own background. Placed my mandala stencil on a whits CS. Then I used oxide inks with a finger dauber for each color to create the pattern and masked the white CS around the edges. I started at the centre of the pattern in a circular motion and added the color through the stencil using DO.
Once I had added all of the colors I removed the stencil carefully.


I didn't want to take anything away from the background, so to finish my first card I added a bold die cut word out of black CS with a sentiment strip from the Blooming Beauty critter sheet and some die cut hearts.

 I added some clear crystal drops to allow the color shine through the sentiment.


I used the same stencil on my second card. I don't want to waste the ink.

In this technique, I just sprayed some water using a mist bottle on the stencil which already inked (used for my first card) and quickly placed the stencil, took the pattern on another piece of white CS. Removed the stencil and I got my new pattern without wasting my ink.
You can keep the pattern same if you want to decorate it but I added a further step on it.

I took my same stencil and placed carefully where I got these inked patterns and covered all around the edges with masking tape again.

Now I added Distress black soot ink to fill those empty space to fill. You can see how the colors are more intense!

  I converted this background pattern into a mixed media shaker card with the theme "Live the life you love!" I am in love with the new Blooming Beauty critter sheet, so pretty!!!

So I used this motif as a focal point with shaker elements and some embellishments using critter sheet florals to highlight this wonderful Blooming girl!

I fussy cut the beautiful lady, floral patterns along with a pair of  shoes with text sentiment banner too from the critter sheets. Then I applied a thin line of clear crystal drops carefully on all the fussy cut-outs and embellishments.

Die cut rangoli frame out of the white sheet and white foam sheets, made a thick stack of them to move around my shaker elements easily.

I gave a watercolor wash effect to my duo die cut leaves.

Now adhered that stack of rangoli frame with acetate on it. In the window, ice glitter candy is poured and  sprinkled some colorful confetti in it, so shimmery and shiny:)D.
Now created the whole scene with all the elements I put in. As the final step, I adhered a metal leaf and flower charm too and added clear crystal glitter to other pretty embellishments clustered around the frame.

Thank you so much for stopping by; I hope you enjoyed them!

An elegant wedding card!

Hello to all!
A very Good Morning!

Vinita here!

Today, I wanted to showcase something special for the newlywed's couple!
 I experimented with several different versions, stretching my dies in a new way, so many fussy cut elements. The Diya die is so versatile, beautiful and intricate with so many beautiful elements to decorate!

This elegant and pretty wedding card is a result of the latest September release at DCAM! When I received Wedding Celebrations Critter sheet in my DT kit, I fall in love with the stuff, color combinations, flowers, couples, hearts, gifts,  so many cute elements in this critter sheet!!! And I have paired all my fussy cut elements with a hint of gold with lots of delicate layers and dimension!
Hoping I succeeded with this pretty bride and groom with the wedding stage!

 And some pics to make you clear how I created my base using scalloped Rectangle die to create the window part as shown in the pic below. My card base is 400 gsm in white so it cut only the upper part of the card base.

I pasted the inner die cut part at the back side of the card.

I used the Diya die cut elements to create my curtain panel border at the top. I created the curtains too using the same die. I fussy cut lot of elements from the critter sheet.

After die cutting my window I created a stencilling panel using box maze 2 steps stencil to enhance the beauty of this project with a hint of gold glittery squares using white embossing paste and glitter paste as shown in the pic.

Now some more clear pics with all dimensions and layers!

Here is the inside view of the window panel with curtain decoration.

There is a short video:

Thanks for taking a look!
