Finding Inspiration in Previous Projects with Daria Grushina [Part 2]

 Hello dear Friends! 

Daria here. To continue my thought on finding inspiration from previous projects, I wanted to share one more card. It uses the same supplies:  Grateful Heart stamp set with coordinating dies, patterned paper, gold embossing powder and a few gold sequins. 

The only thing I've added is die-cut letters for the sentiment. 

I think, this card has the same feel as a previous one. At the same time, it is different: design, scheme, colours. It is more monochromatic with just a touch of color behind the letters. 

I again started with heat embossing beautiful flower cluster from Grateful Heart stamp set in Gold embossing powder. Die cut it and foam mounted over a patterned panel from Modern Graphics paper pack from Julie Ebersole. 

Then, I've added die-cut letters for the sentiment in gold glitter paper along with a little pink behind. They were made using Classic Block Alpha by Ellen Hutson. But you may use any letters you have on hand. 

Gold sequins add that extra shine and movement to the card. 

Can you tell me, which of the three cards made as an inspiration from one another you liked the most? Or may be you also have a similar creative process?

Thanks so much for stopping by, and see you next time,

xoxo,

Finding Inspiration in Previous Projects with Daria Grushina

Hello-hello awesome people,

Daria here. It is been a while.  At my previous post, I've shared with you this card


It was a super simple and fast to make project.  While writing about this card, I also got an idea of another card, using photos of the project as an inspiration. To say the truth, it happens with me a lot. I start to make something and wile making a card I've often got a completely different idea in the process or afterwards. Does it happen with you too?




So today, I am again going to share a card with  Grateful Heart stamp set. I started with heat embossing beautiful flower cluster from Grateful Heart stamp set in Gold embossing powder. Die cut it and foam mounted over a panel I made from coloured cardstock. I think pink and grey are just made for each other and look so good together. 




I also used a patterned paper from Modern Graphics paper pack from Julie Ebersole. It always give a right contrast and modern feel to any card project. 


Sentiment is from the Floral Frame stamp set, and also heat embossed in gold. I finished it up with one sequin in gold. 

That's for today.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and see you next time,

xoxo,

Neon Mail Background with Cheiron

Hi there crafty friends. It's Cheiron here with another monthly post. This month I am using the Mail Background stamp, which just came back into stock in the Neat and Tangled shop, so grab yours while you can! 

I don't know if you are a fan of neon, but I love it so much! I am glad to see some neon pieces trending for fall in some of my favorite shops and was inspired to pull out some neon supplies from my stash to make this quick and easy card. 

First, I stamped and embossed the Mail Background in white on a black piece of cardstock. Then I used my Gelly Roll Moonlight pens in all my favorite colors to color in the hearts. Once the hearts were dry, I stamped the Just Because sentiment from the Medallion Flower Builder Set onto a strip of white cardstock. I added a few neon envies cut from the Love Mail dies to complete the card. That's it! Super easy and super colorful and ready to send to brighten someone's day!

Super Simple Thank You Card with Daria Grushina

  Hello-hello awesome people,

Daria here. Today, I am sharing a super simple and fast to make project. Again, I am working with  Grateful Heart stamp set. Love when image speaks for itself and already is a gorgeous focal point. So, I've decided to go with the image, gold embossing and simple, almost minimal design. 


I started with heat embossing beautiful flower cluster from Grateful Heart stamp set in Gold embossing powder. Die cut it and foam mounted over a grey cardstock base. Sentiment is from the same stamp set, and also heat embossed in gold. I finished it up with a few sequins in gold. 


With this design, it is super easy to mass produce Thank You cards. Moreover, it will work with any color scheme. I made a few photos to show how good this image would look with different colours of background. 


You may even choose to use pattern or embossed paper. 




While thinking about this post, I also made another card, using photos of the project as an inspiration. I will share it next time. Meanwhile, I will be happy to see what you create. If you get inspired, be sure to tag us in social media.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and see you next time,

Diamond Pattern Card with Daria Grushina

 Hello-hello dear people,


Daria here. For my today's post, I've created a diamond pattern using Geometric die set and little flowers and leaves from Grateful Heart stamp. And I really like the way it turned out. 


I started with stamping and colouring small flowers and leaves from Grateful Heart stamp. Then, I die cut the flowers with  coordinating dies, along with several diamond shapes from Geometric die set. 

I arranged these geometric shapes over my card base and then worked on each flower cluster individually. I adhere every cluster using both glue dots and foam squares. 


When all of my individual pieces were done, I adhered them with foam tape to the card base. 

I also added a sentiment from  Typed Sentiments stamp set and placed on a banner from Skinny Stripes dies. A few sequins in Crystal Clear added a little bit of shine. 


As I had a lot of extra flower let, I've decided to do second card. For my second card, I went with a design I tried earlier, but with a little twist. I leave the link here, so you may check it out.  I arranged flowers, added leaves, and adhered everything with foam tape. I left little borders on the sides to mimic the frame. 


I placed a little sentiment from Typed Sentiments stamp set over a short banner from Skinny Stripes dies on the side, picking from one of the flowers. 


A single gold sequin attract attention to the sentiment and gives a little more interest to the card. 


That's it, hope you like it and may be will give a try. 
Thanks so much for stopping by, and see you next time,

Pink + Gold Card with Daria Grushina [VIDEO]

Hello-hello Awesome People!

Daria here. I was playing with Floral Frame Stamp and die set. And there is a video too. There is lots of heat-embossing, pink and gold. So, it turned out to be very girlish birthday card. 


Here, you may find the process:


I started with stamping the Floral Frame with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it in gold embossing powder. Then, I die-cut it using coordinating die.


Next step was to stamp the Delicate Dots Rubber Background stamp to the pink panel. This beautiful colour of cardstock comes from Over The Rainbow Assorted Cardstock Pack. I used the central portion of the Floral Frame that left after die-cutting to mask the center. This way, I had a space for the sentiment free from the background dots.


I heat-embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set in the middle of the panel, using white embossing powder. I adhere the frame with foam tape. I also added a few sequins here and there for some extra shine.


This card turned out to be really tender. I love the combination of pink, white and gold.  Plus, it is completely made with heat embossing, and I love heat-embossing. Each time, it is like magic. Hope you like it (wink).


Thanks so much for stopping by, and see you next time,
xoxo,
D.


ps: There is another project, I've done with the same Floral Frame Stamp and die set. You may find it here, including a process video for the card.
