This is Gayatri from Handmadebyg3 and I am your challenge host for this month.
Festive season is on the horizon and Diwali is just around the corner. Hope you are all getting ready and excited to celebrate the festive season more so than ever this year. We need that cheer in our lives considering the current situation. In view of the festive season, this month’s challenge is themed accordingly. It is called Lit it Up!
You can interpret the challenge theme however you like. You can stamp diyas or added diya diecut to interpret the theme literally. Or do a really bright colour project or add sparkle to your project either using glitter paper or glitter paste or sequins. Or make festive cards. Think outside the box. Interpret the theme however you like. We love to see your take on the theme.
We have three design team members including me sharing our projects for the challenge. Hope they inspire you to participate in the challenge.
First up is team member Zalak Mandal
This is Zalak A Mandal, from thecardshopstudio . Today I have three cards to show you for the current Challenge #36 theme.
I have used only one stencil and a sentiment stamp set for these three cards. So let’s start,
Details are as follows:
- I have started with the stencil, placing over a watercolor CS and started dabbing versamark ink for heat embossing.
- Once the watercolor CS is covered with the ink, I gently remove the stencil and add gold embossing powder and heat it with a heat tool.
- Then I blend distress oxide of different colors to make it a little festive look and fuzzy cut the mandala stencil.
- I die-cut “Sparkle” word from glitter CS for one of the cards.
- I stamped the sentiment and completed the card with some coordinating jewels.
I am sharing few more pics,
I hope you are all set for this Diwali, and thank you for stopping by. I hope you have enjoyed my card. Do not forget to participate in our challenge #36.
Next up the team member Monika Shukla
This is Monika from UROOCREATIONS.
I am here to share with you all some inspirations for the new month Challenge. DIY Candle Holders for our Diwali festival.
- Take some plastic bottle caps and a tin box lid.
- Paint the caps and the lid using Metallic Acrylic Paint – Chocolate and let them dry.
- Now place a chipboard piece from Mudra Chipzeb – Leaves #2, on the bottle cap and stick another bottle cap on the top of the chipboard piece. Both caps will be facing their back while sticking.
- Now add Mudra Décor Stones (Medium, Mini and Micro). Now our DIY Candle holders are ready. Do the same for others caps.
- For the tin lid add some juite twine to the lid, and then add the chipboard to finish.
I hope you will love these easy and quick DIY Candle Holders. Please do let me, what you feel about these pieces, in the comments below. Don’t forget to join our ongoing challenge.
And finally here is my project.
- The background is made using the Indian Ornate stencil. I used Mudra inks to sponge over in rainbow of colours.
- I used Diwali die for the larger sentiment. The gold glitter paper for the word die and backer is sponged with yellow ink.
- The smaller sentiment is gold heat embossed on black cardstock.
- The focal image is the Diya Die. The backer panel is sponged with inks and from detail die is die cut using gold glitter cardstock.
- A few gold sequins randomly scattered around to finish off the card.
- Use of Mudra products is must to qualify for the challenge and do mention in your projects clearly.
