5 Quick and easy Eid cards using ONE stamp set (with DStamps)

Yup you read that title correct. I’ve got five cards to share with you using one stamp set! And they are using really simple techniques and products that most crafter have in their stash! So even though there are like 3 days left for Eid, you have plenty of time to make these to add to your gifts! Don’t have the stamp set yet, well then order it ASAP -‘s use it for your Hajj and post Eid parties!

The first card has some very basic coloring. After embossing the image and sentiment, I did very quick coloring with Zig real brush markers. Finally trimmed the card front down and adhered it to a black card base.

The second card took a few minutes longer, I used a cross stitch die from Studio Katia, to create the Kabaa with some black and gold thread. I used the same sentiment, embossed in gold, and trimmed it down before adhering it to a black card base.

The third card is possibly the easiest of the batch, I embossed the sentiment in gold, and the sheep in black and added googly eyes. Done!

The last two cards I clustered the smaller images on an acrylic block and stamped them repetitively to create a background. I was going to keep the card one later, but forgot to stamp the sentiment. Instead I stamped it on some vellum and added it to the card front using some craft foam.

And that’s it! 5 cards that took me 1 hr including the stitching! I hope this inspires you to create and add some handmade items to your Eid gifts!

Salam and Sayings Theme Week (with DStamps) : Day 5

Two posts on the same day? Well I have lots to catch up on! Lots of new things to create and share, so here we go with the last set of cards for this series. The inspiration for these cards was a bouquet of flowers that were delivered with note in a card holder floral pick. I wish I saved the pick for the photo shoot though!

To create these cards, I used some pre colored and pre diecut images from two of my favorite floral stamps set. I colored them using copic combos from Yana Smakula. Then using my largest hexagon die, I die cut two in white cardstock and two in black. I embossed the sentiment onto the black one and stamped with black in on the white. To create the card flap for a space to write your message, I scored one edge at a 1/4 inch and adhered it using some strong double sided adhesive.

Using some liquid adhesive I adhered the floral images in a wreath pattern. At this point I realized using a circle die might have made, making the wreath pattern easier, but I think the end results turned out pretty good!

As always, here is a list of all the supplies that I used for these cards :
Salam Stamps // DStamps
Spring Wreath Stamp Set// Pretty Pink Posh
Spring Wreath Coordinating Dies // Pretty Pink Posh
Bunny Friends Stamp Set // Pretty Pink Posh

Thanks for following along, and I hope that I have inspired you to create cards with different sentiments!

Happy Crafting!

Salam and Sayings Theme Week (with DStamps) : Day 4

This post is days late because I decided not to pack my laptop, thinking that I can type it up and post it on my phone, but I failed. Really badly failed, so here I am on a Monday afternoon when I should be creating/posting for Eid! Can you believe Eid is less that a week away! I’m still unpacking from the wedding weekend. Man, Dallas was hot! Enough chit chat, card time! 

To make these cards, I started off by stamping this beautiful floral wreath image from Studio Katia, it’s a HUGE one! My final card was a 5 x 5 inch square. I’ll link the envelopes I use to mail/give this away below. I colored them using chameleon dual tone colored pencils, and diecut using the largest square die I could find in my stash. Then I used a circle die to cut out the center of the wreath. With my card fronts ready, it was now time to finish of the cards. I made 5 x 5 cardbases in black cardstock.

For the first card, I made a window card. Started with lining up card front with the base, and die cut a circle, and create the window. I added a white square to the inside of the card to stamp the sentiment (from DStamps), leaving room to add your message. As usual I added some gems to the front of the card for a finishing touch.

I made the second card a shaker, one of my favorite cards to make! Using some thin foam tape I created the ‘well’ for the sequins, after adding a piece of acetate to cover the window in the middle of the wreath. I added more foam tape around the ‘well’ and added it to the card base. I also added a few of the same sequins on the wreath, along with an embossed sentiment to finish off the card!
