More Mini Muslim Eid Cards | Eid on the Feed

Welcome back! Popping back in again today to share another pair of cards using the Mini Muslims Stamp Set from DStampss.

For this pair of cards, I used the two images of the “little Muslims” reading the Quran. After coloring, I fussy cut the images. To create the scene, I ink blended a focal point on the card front using the Eid & Ramadan Stencils and some mustard color ink. Next I stamped and fussy cut the “prayer mat” from an older My Monthly Hero Art card kit.

Lastly, I adhered the “mat” with liquid glue and the little character with some foam tape, stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set, Mini Muslims Stamp Set and added some jewels.

I hope these card inspire you to create for Eid! If you need more ideas, you can find them here.

Happy Crafting!

Little Muslim Eid Cards | Eid on the Feed

Ooo… looks who’s back and that even with a Eid card! When DStampss sent me her Mini Muslims Stamp Set, it was the perfect opportunity to practice some skin tone coloring! No where near perfect, but I’m happy with the results!

As you may have noticed over the past week or so, I have been trying to create CAS (clean and simple) cards, and I’ve been enjoying embracing the “white space”. So for these cards, instead of inking the whole background or adding a cover die cut, I cut a masjid/mosque shade die (min is from an old My Monthly Hero card kit, but you can use a Cricut or hand cut one using a stencil) to create the focal point of my card.

I heat embossed the lantern image from the Lanterns and Little dua Makers stamp set with white embossing powder, and ink blending on to it. I buffed it with a cloth after to let the embossing peak through. Then I stamped, colored and fussy cut the two images holding balloons. I adhered them using foam tape for a little added dimension. Lastly I stamped the sentiment using black ink.

I hope that this inspired you to create Eid cards to share with friends and family! Please tag me @everydayengineered on Instagram when you create something! I’d love to see it!

Happy Crafting!

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!

As always, here’s a list of products I used :
Hajj+Eid Stamps // Dstamps
Stitch Borders // Studio Katia
VersaMark Watermark Ink // Impress Cards and Crafts

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
Bunny Friends Coordinating Dies // Pretty Pink Posh
Stitched Hexagons Dies // Pretty Pink Posh
Copic Markers // ScrapbookPal

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

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!

Thanks for following along and here is a list of the products that I used to make these cards!
Salam Stamps // DStamps
Floral Wreath // Studio Katia
Spring Blooms Sequins Mix // Pretty Pink Posh
Strathmore Bristol Smooth // Micheals Stores

Salam and Sayings Theme Week (with DStamps) : Day 3

Hey guys and welcome back to this theme week that I started 2 weeks ago! I’m sorry but life happened, and that means real life and adulting had to take first priority! But I am back now, I have cards, and pictures and now time for the less creative part of the craft blogging world, typing. Lots of typing!

Recently I have collected more than an handful of ‘border stamps’. That’s what I call them, as you can stamp them as a border on the card, color, add the sentiment and you are all set with a completed card! So that’s exactly what I did with this set of cards, I wanted a little extra space to use a larger sentiment.

I wasn’t planning on fussy cutting the images, but I made the rest of the paper a little messy, so fussy cutting (there are coordinating dies for this stamp set) and sequins to the rescue. I colored the images using chameleon dual tone colored pencils. I don’t think I’ve made a card with so much green on it before! The rainbow floral seems to be my go to style these days!

The sentiment was is from DStamps, I’ve been loving using her stamp set as it add a little something extra to my cards with an Arabic sentiment!

As usual here is a list of products that I used :
Salam Stamps // DStamps
Mama Elephant – Wild Meadow // DoodlebugsWA
Party Mix Jewels // Pretty Pink Posh
Neenah Dessert Storm // Ellen Hutson
Strathmore Bristol Smooth // Micheals Stores
Memento Ink – Tuxedo Black // Impress Cards and Crafts

Thanks again for stopping by! I’m off to create some more content for y’all! See you again soon!

Salam and Sayings Theme Week (with DStamps) : Day 2

Welcome back for day 2! Waking up three times in the middle of the night doesn’t help with the productive day I had planned, so here I am eating lunch at 4PM and typing this after a 3 hour nap!

For today’s cards I used sentiments that can used instead of Congrats or Good Luck, what do you think? Maybe a graduation or new baby card? I paired them with Magnolia Stamps from Pretty Pink Posh colored using copic markers.

For the first card, I used the storybook 5 die from Pretty Pink Posh to create the scene. I stamped the sentiment in Fresh Ink from Impress, and also ink blended part of the background to add interest. For a finishing touch I added some clear nuvo drops.

For the second card I lightly ink blended the edges of the card, and stamped the sentiment in the same color. And I ran out of leaves at this point! So what to do? I cut the two leaves that I had in half and stuck them behind the flowers. Can you tell? I can’t and I know I’ll be using this trick more in the future! And of course I added nuvo drops for the finishing touch.

One last look at the pair of cards and here’s a list of supplies that I used :

Magnolia Flowers // Pretty Pink Posh
Storybook 3 Die // Pretty Pink Posh
Storybook 5 Die // Pretty Pink Posh
Copic Markers // ScrapbookPal
Artist Markers – Set A // Altenew
Memento Ink – Tuxedo Black // Impress Cards and Crafts
Fresh Ink – Basil // Impress Cards and Crafts
Nuvo Crystal Drops // Impress Cards and Crafts
Salam Stamps // DStamps

Thanks again for stopping by my blog! Fingers crossed I’ll be back tomorrow! 

Happy Crafting!
