Wax seals as sentiments | Eid on the Feed

Why hello there! It’s been a minute, as much as I enjoy sharing, the blogging/photography/editing gets a little boring and I use my spare time to go and craft! I posted these cards on my instagram feed a while back, but never made it to the blog to share product links and such!

To create these cards, I started by printing images from Clear and 88’s Bold Bouquet Stamp Set. I colored them using Studio 71 Watercolor Pencils and fussy cut them.

To create the backgrounds, I die cut Pink Fresh Studio’s Geo Floral and Geo Leaf Background Die from white card stock. Then I lightly ink blended on the card base with a blue ink to add some depth, before adhering the cover die cuts.

Lastly I finished of the card with some wax seals from Wax Seals By Aisha.

Thanks for stopping by the blog and I hope this inspires you to create Eid cards with non eid specific products!

Happy Crafting!

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!

Chocolate Stirring Spoons | Eid on the Feed

Welcome to my first installment for my latest ‘project’, Eid on the Feed! I personally feel that I don’t connect on a Eid/Ramadan level with many creators out there, so here’s hoping that this helps me meet other creators with my style of creating.

For my first post, I created some chocolate stirring spoons that are perfect for goodie bags and sharing with friends, as most of us are still in some form of lockdown, unfortunately.

I have seen different forms of this floating around on the internet, so I decided that I need to add a little ‘eid’ flair to it! You can stamp, color or even draw your own designs on it, but I decided to use some lovely washi tape from The Write Aesthetic. I used the Masjid Garland and Moon & Lantern, wrapping them around some wooden spoons. Them I dipped them in melting chocolate (I use this one). Before letting it harden, I added some gold and purple sprinkles to match the washi tape (and my favorite Ramadan color combo!

I am going to print a tag (and probably add washi tape too it!) with instructions to dip it in boiling milk! If you were inspired by this, and create something for Eid, please tag me on Instagram, using @everydayengineered OR #eidonthefeed!

Arabic Sayings

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
VersaFine Black Onyx // Impress Cards and Crafts
White embossing powder // Impress Cards and Crafts
Gold embossing powder // Amazon

Ramadan Decor (and where to shop)

Between work, A and having a million things to do and catch up on over the weekends, I lost my crafting mojo, so my decor this year is not DIY, well at least not by me! While scrolling on Instagram I found an picture, from CraftyEmo, that I just had to copy her idea! I immediately ordered the banner from Modern Eid and reached out to Eman of CraftyEmo to see if she will make me the rolled flowers she decorated with and she said yes!

So this is what I ended up with along with adding a few star balloons that A and I picked up at the Dollar Store. Am I the only one obsessed with rolled flowers! Hoping I can make them this pretty!

Both Crate and Barrel and Party City carried Ramadan/Eid Decor this year (for the first time!). Unfortunately, they sold out almost immediately, but there are plenty of small business that have amazing products. Here’s a list in case you are still looking for something, or want to get started on your Eid shopping/wish list!
