Mudra Stamps special Post - By SathyaKala

Hi Crafty peeps!

Its me SathyaKala here today at Lulupu and am super excited to Guest Design as Mudra Creative Team Member with few set of inspirations using Mudra Stampsets. And to showcase few amazing projects from my super talented Teamies of Mudra.

We are excited about Lulupu - India's Leading Craft Store stocking up our Mudra craft stamps. We are extremely excited and equally privileged to be here today.

Lets see the inspirations now!!

Card 1:

1.Took 5" square cardbase and did matting with few colored cardstocks with quarter inch differences.

2. Card panel is masked with a negative of a oval scallop and the DI inks - Scattered straw, Rusty hinge are sponged to give a nice blended background.

3. Stamped the girl silhouette stamp using Black archival ink within the blended bg.

4. For the swing to perch, stamped the flourishes several times, from  Fancy flourish stampset using Rich cocoa momento ink.

5. Sentiment from Dreamcatcher stampset is used here and stamped using Black Archival ink, in such a way, it lies partially on the focal background.

Card 2:

1. 5" square ivory cardbase is taken and did  few mattings as shown.

2. Card panel is stamped with Polka dots bg using versamark and heat embossed with Ranger White Embossing powder

3. Then its diecut using Circle provocraft-cuttlebug die.

4. To peek through the negative spaces of diecuts, white cs is stamped with Fancy Flourish stampset using Black Archival ink and inserted beneath the focal panel.

5. Butterflies from Grungy butterflies stampset are stamped and colored using Zig clean color brush pens with few white highlights.

6. Then the left over diecut is taken and stamped with sentiment from Brushed Sentiments stampset.

7.Few baby blue pearls are added as accents.

Card 3:

 1. 5" white square cardbase taken. Matted with pink and black cardstocks.

2.Took watercolor cardstock, and Ranger silver heat embossed the flourishes from Fancy flourishes stampset.

3. Whole paper is water brushed and worn lipstick distress ink is added. Then it left to air dry.

4.Its then diecut using Cuttlebug Provocraft circle die and popped using foam adhesives on the focal panel.

5. For the last element, to add interest, butterfly from Butterfly flutters is colored using Zig pens and used with  a flower sticker.

6. Sentiment is used from Brushed Sentiment stampset.

7.Few white pearls are added as accents.

 Card 4:

1. This Vinatge-y attempt is done on a long card, as its much suited my card idea.

2.Kraft cardbase is taken and distressed slightly on the edges using the Rich cocoa momento ink.

3. The white matting layer is taken and top and bottom edges are torn. Then distressed slightly with Momento Toffee crunch and then heavily with momento rich cocoa ink.

4. Fancy flourishes stampset is used to stamp the flourish at the corners of the matting layer.

5.Then water is sprayed to get a mottled effect and before it could dry completely, went ahead and stamped feather stamps from Dreamcatcher sets on the centre of the card. Heat embossed it using Ranger Gold Ep.

6.During this process, the pooled effects appeared on cs took the Embossing Powders and while heat setting gave that lovely cellular backgeound effect, which is so awesome in real. This matted on the card base.
(I intended to avoid Anti-static bag to have this effect and its a non watercolor paper)

7.White cs is taken and its torn wholly on edges and its edges alone heavily distressed using series of DIs- Tumbled glass, Broken china, Peacock feathers and momento rich cocoa ink.

8.Then central portion of the focal panel is torn off and again its edges are distressed using Rich cocoa momento ink.

9. Water is sprayed using mister to get a mottled effect and heat set.

10.Polka dots stamp set is used on corners of the panel.

11.This panel is matted on the cs making sure to keep gold embossed feathers centrally.

12.Sentiment from Dare to fly stampset is stamped and torn as portions, edges again distressed and mounted on focal panel.

13.Feathers from Dream catcher stampset is stamped on vellum and heat embossed using Ranger Gold Ep and tugged under the up and down sentiment banners.

Mixed Media Tag

1. Took largest diecut from TH tag dies set on a thick chipboard.

2. Gessoed it completely and applied Texture paste mixed with Dylusions- Lemon zest on top corner of the tag, Using TH texture tools, swipped across the texture paste and after drying sprayed with same mist.

3. On the bottom portion of the tag, the texture paste is mixed with LSG - Azure Sea Aster and used TH bubble stencil for stenciling. After drying, sprayed with same mist for the pooling effect around the stenciled area and heat set it.

4. Lotus flower, bud, leaf are from Lotus Blooms stampset and they are heat embossed using Lavender Zing Ep and Leaf Zing Ep. Colored using Zig cleancolor brush pens.

5.LSG - Sea mist green is sprayed right below the yellow stenciled portion and heat set it.

6.Flower, bud and leaf are fussy cut and mounted on the tag using foam adhesives and misted cheesecloth are tugged under and near those to give marshy and moss look.

7.Few Prima artstones scattered on cheesecloth and Rangers Glossy accents as dew/water droplets effects.

8.Sentiment from Peony love is added and fussy cut and sponged slightly on edges with tumbled class Distress ink.

9. Yellow polka dot ribbon and green twine are added to finish off the card.
