  • ‘Abundance of Joy’ May 2022 Release Instagram hop and prizes to be won!

    Hi everyone! Happy almost-weekend. We are here to wish an abundance of joy in your life with our latest release named as that. :-) If you don’t follow me on Instagram, please do so here. I would love to welcome you in our little tribe. We do share lots more inspiration (and entertainment) over there, than we do here on the blog alone. It’s a fun place to be and yes, every month we have giveaways too :) I created a very proper-proper-ish card for this hop after playing with some really fun ideas. (Yes, yes, I will finish those projects and share here or on Instagram for sure, just not today...) So, here's the card for today showcasing our gorgeous Hollyhocks from the "Abundance of Joy" stamp set. Hollyhocks symbolize the circle of life, ambition, fertility, and abundance. They have traditionally been planted near the front door of homes to welcome prosperity. {as per this source} I have always been fascinated by these flowers and I am happy I was able to create a stamp set with it :-) Key Ingredients: Abundance of Joy stamp set (on VaradaSharma.com | on Etsy.com) Gnome Love - stamp set Spellbinders Loops Embossing Folder from the Be Bold Collection Copics Pinks - RV02 - RV04 - RV09 Greens - G07 - YG67 Yellow center - Y08 - Y15 Steps: Use Powerpoint to size and print the flowers. Cut using Brother scan and Cut or fussy cut. Color using Copics listed above. Stamp the sentiment from Gnome Love set using Altenew Rubellite ink and cut it as a banner. Use the second largest rectangle from Waffle Flower cut out a black rectangle panel and dry embossing it with Loops embossing folder from Spellbinders. Assemble, add bling and send it out. Let's make someone happy :) Instagram Hop We are hoping along starting from my feed @VaradaSharma. Do drop by to check out the full list of participants. We will pick 3 winners to receive $10 store credit each, from comments across all the stops. So, what are you waiting for?

  • You Are Fabulous - Shaker Card

    Hello Crafty Friends! Happy Thursday!! It's Bhavya here from PaperSplash and I'm here with a fun interactive shaker card to share with you today. I've used digital stamps Fuchsia and hummingbird from the April 2022 release Blooming for you!! This gorgeous image was very easy to colour using watercolors. To turn it into a fun shaker card, added few shaker sequins and seed bead mix. Covered with acetate sheet using foam tapes. "You are fabulous" wording from another exquisite stamp set Exotic Orchids has been printed and heat embossed using gold embossing powder has been layered across the shaker panel. Finally a gold rectangular frame, few sequins and glossy accents has been added for little shine and interest. That's all for now! Hope you like my card!! Thanks so much for stopping by!! You are welcome to visit my blog PaperSplash and my Instagram Craftgeekbhavya. Stay Safe and Happy Crafting!!
