Mudra stamps guest desinger Kanan Pandya + Coupon

Hello friends!! This is Kanan and I am so excited to guest designing here at Lulupu blog as a creative team member of Mudra Crafts Stamps. Today I will be showcasing three cards and a tag using some of the beautiful stamp sets by Mudra. I hope you all will like my creation.
So let’s get started.

First Card - 


  •   First I used few Distress inks in the very light shades of pink,yellow and blue and used the ink smooshing technique  and  colored the background.
  • I then white and clear embossed the  “Damask “set on some of the area of my background.
  • After that I used “Vintagy Flourish” on vellum and used “Dried Marigold” Distress Embossing Powder and White embossing powder.
  •  Finally added some flowers and assemble everything on the card panel.
  • The sentiment is by “Peony Love “ stamp set which I white embossed.
  •   Lastly added some stickles on the flowers and my card was finished. 
  •  I love the Mixed-media and sort of shabby chick look of this card.

Second card – 

  • For This card, first I inked the background using Distress inks.
  • After that I white embossed the floral images from "Dainty Blooms"
  • For some extra interest I cut the border of the top panel with a pair of scissor which was having triangle banner kind of design.
  • The Sentiment is from "Brushed" set which I stamped using two different shades of Memento ink to match the background. 
  • Lastly added the panel on the main card base and added some sequins and also added some white dots with gel pen. 
  • I love the cool shades of green and blue against the white embossed flowers. 

Third Card – 

  •  For this card I used the butterfly from the “Beautiful Butterflies “ set. Then, I inked using various Memento inks.
  • I wanted to use the water, but I was not using watercolor paper and also I did not want that intense watercolor look and that’s why I inked the image using various shades of Memento ink and spray lightly with water and stamp directly on the paper.
  •  I hold the image on paper for few seconds so the inks with water will get absorb in it.
  • I repeat the same using various inks and stamped few more butterflies on the panel.
  •   On the card base I adhered a patterned paper which was having very light blue and yellow        colors.
  • To give more interest to the design, I used the scalloped edge scissors and cut the bottom edge of the top panel and adhered the whole panel on the card base.
  • Finally, added the sentiment which is from the same set and some gems.
  • I love those bright butterflies with very soft watercolor effect.

 Fourth Tag - 

  • I water-colored the floral images from the "Peony Love" set using Distress inks.
  • On a navy blue tag I added two strips of patterned paper and on that I arranged the flowers and leaves.
  • The sentiment is from "Purely sentiment- Labelled"
  • Lastly added some sequins
  • I love the bright color combinations of this tag and the loose watercolor effect.
