Find the Beauty Card Trio by Deepti Stephens

Hello there everyone!

This is Deepti Stephens and I am so happy that I am guest designing for one of my favourite stamp companies, Right at Home. Today, I have three cards to share with you all.

So let's get started! :)

For my first card, I stamped floral images from the Find the Beauty stamp set and layered the colors with the variety of Catherine Pooler inks - It's a Girl, Party Dress, Rockin' Red, Mint to be, Lime Rickey and Midnight.

I took a navy blue cardstock and white embossed the sentiment. I adhered all the floral images in the form of the wreath, a kind of semi-wreath.

And finally embellished the card with a few clear sequins.

Here's my video tutorial for this card...

Here comes the second card!

On a light grey card stock, I stamped the Grid Background Stamp set in Midnight ink.

I stamped the leaves on a green card stock from Find the Beauty with the Grass Skirt ink, fussy cut it and adhered over the second smaller panel.

Finally. stamped the sentiment with Midnight Ink and embellished with pink sequins. Those pink sequins look like pretty flowers, right!

And for my third card...

I applied strokes of blue water color on a white card base. Later, I added splatters of black ink.

I colored the envelopes with Sizzix Permanent Red Marker. The stamp set I used is from Happy Mail Year 2.

Spring Hello Cozy Cardinal Card // National Craft Month with Right at Home + Friends

Happy Sunday!

Tomorrow will be one week since the National Craft Month Celebration with Right at Home + Friends started but oh boy does it feel like longer. I hope you've been enjoying the daily inspiration here on the blog and my YouTube channel. Today myself and my crafty friend Holly of Hollybeary Creations are sharing a project inspired by a challenge meant to help you stretch your seasonal products. 

Let's get started...

Spring Hello Cozy Cardinal Card // National Craft Month with Right at Home + Friends

The holiday item I chose to focus on was my Cozy Cardinal stamp set from my last holiday release. Over the past few seasons I've been stamping him in different ink colors to create a variety of birds. This time around I chose to use yellow hues to create the tweetest spring bird.

I used my MISTI so I could accurately stamp each layer in a variety of Catherine Pooler inks. For his head, tail, and part of his wing I used Sauna. For his body I chose Shea Butter which is the perfect spring yellow. The other part of his wing is in Tiara as are the dots on his tummy. His legs are in Icing on the Cake, his cheeks in It's a Girl, and his teeny little beak in Orange Twist.

I stamped a branch from the same stamp set in a light brown ink then got started on my flowers. All the flowers are included in my Find the Beauty stamp set, however, I mixed in the small leaves from Cozy Cardinal. All ink colors used will be listed below.

Once all my stamping was done I got to work on my background panel. On a large stitched rectangle, cut from my Find the Beauty Die Set, I inked on a light layer of Mint to Be ink. It does take a bit of work to build up this color but the results are worth it. I arranged all my flowers and my bird towards the top with foam tape and tape runner adhesive.

Along the bottom panel I adhered a "hello" die-cut sentiment that I inked with Mint to Be and a touch of Aquatini. I stacked a few additional die-cuts underneath the inked one to add dimension. I adhered the finished panel onto an A2 sized kraft cardbase and my card was finished!

You can watch this tweet bird come to life in my process video below...

And once you're finished watching make sure to pop over to Holly's blog for another spring card created with a holiday item.

Hello Find the Beauty Clean & Simple Card // National Craft Month with Right at Home + Friends

Hey, hey!

We made it to the weekend! Phew, what a week is has been. I know some of you have been crafting everyday along with me so I know you must be as tuckered as I am. So, to give us a little crafty break I'm challenging you to create a card with lots of white space. Yes, I'm giving you the freedom to design a plain, clean and simple card. In fact, I insist you do so. 

Let's get started...

Hello Find the Beauty Clean & Simple Card // National Craft Month with Right at Home + Friends

When designing this card I had all these plans of making of it one layer with embossing and inlay die-cutting and basically every technique you could think of. But, sometimes you just can't quite recreate the design in your head...because you have no idea where your rubber embossing mat went. So, alas, I ended up with today's card which I still love but it has a few more layers than I originally wanted. 

Hello Find the Beauty Clean & Simple Card // National Craft Month with Right at Home + Friends - rightathomeshop.com/blog

To start I die-cut the smallest stitched rectangle from my Find the Beauty Die Set. I also die-cut one of the flowers, flower center, and three of the "hello". I stamped out my flower pieces from Find the Beauty using some Catherine Pooler inks in Party Dress, Rockin' Red, Tiara, Orange Twist, and Icing on the Cake. I also pulled in Lime Rickey and Grass Skirt for my leaves which are from my Cozy Cardinal set. I just liked the scale of these leaves better for the design...I know, so extra.

Along the bottom of the stitched panel I used some Mint to Be ink on an ink blending tool and sponged on a light layer of color. This helped add some color to background and give some contrast for my "hello" die-cut to lay over. I adhered all my pieces over top with either foam tape or tape runner adhesive.

For my cardbase I decided I needed a bit more color so I used the same Mint to Be ink and my Watercolor Background Stamp. It adds a subtle bit color and texture which I love. I popped my stitched panel on top and my card was finished. 

You can watch my super quick process in the video below...

I'm the only one posting today so make sure to join in so I'm not lonely...lol. Today would be the perfect day to do so as it is such a simple challenge. Unless you're more of a complex cardmaker which would make this challenge difficult. Nevermind. 

Anyways, I'll see you back here tomorrow!
