Fun with Stamping !!

Good Morning Beautiful Crafters!

How are you all doing?  It's a new month with a new Challenge here at Lulupu which is all about stamping. I personally love stamping. It is so much fun and one of my favorite things when it comes to crafting as it gives altogether a new definition to your piece of work. You can use stamps everywhere - whether it is cards, scrapbooks, tags, bookmarks, mix media; the list goes on.

Today, I have two cards to share with you all. I have used Joy and Love Micia stamp from my kit. It is super cute and the most adorable stamp set I've ever had. Have a look !!

And here are the two UNIQUE cards I created!

                I made two cards using the same stamp set. I had so much fun making these cards.

    What do you think ? Its super cute', right? Okay now coming over to the cards, lets take them individually

1. Green and Pink Card -  For this I have used some left-over patterned paper. I cut them in small pieces and tried to give them a brick wall look. This card carries lot of layers or you can say Paper piecing and layering technique. I have added these cute little music notes die cuts from my stash . I pasted these die- cuts on acetate strips and pasted below the stamp image.

2. Blue and White Card - This is my first pop- up card, so I kept it simple. I have made a Tag which I have pasted on the front and used some left-over die cuts. The fun part was coloring these cute birds and distressing which I have used in the center of the pop up frame .

I have a pictorial for you all on How to give cloud like effect with Distress Inks -

Things Required - Scallop die cut, or you can cut it free hand in the shape of a cloud, Ink blending tool and distress Ink .

I hope I am able to make it easy for you all .

How to - make pop up 

           Fold your card stock in to half and make two slits on each side as shown in the picture above .

                              Now fold the center dotted lines both ways forward and backward .

Now push the folded flap of CS in the center and now open  you will have your base ready to decorate.

Voila your card is ready to decorate .

What do you have to say ? Hopefully was able to inspire you all in some way . I hope you were able to pick up few things from my post and do give this Month's Challenge a try.
