Happy Eid!

Hello Everyone,

Ramadan has come to its end and today all muslims in the world started celebrating Eid al Fitr, which is a 3 days long feast with great food, special cookies and most of all – happy family gatherings. Unfortunately we are living far from our muslim relatives, but I wanted to wish all of my muslim family members and friends a blessed Eid. If I could have one wish only, I would ask for world peace. A world where people of different religions and ethnics can live peacefully together, where everyone tries to see the good in the others and not look for the evil. My heart is sad for all muslims who cannot live and enjoy the feast in peace.

Last year I bought the beautiful Decorative Hamsa from Simon Says Stamp and I was looking forward to putting it on a card. So I die cut it from gold sparkle cardstock which I previously backed with Stick It adhesive: as it is an intricate die, I felt it was going to be easier to adhere it this way.

I die cut a vellum circle with the Simon Says Stamp Circle dies and adhered the golden die cut.

For the background I used several Alcohol Inks from Ranger: Bottle, Clover, Limeade, Meadow, Pistachio and Citrus. I usually use Yupo paper but today I tried the Ranger glossy cardstock which was meant to be used with alcohol inks. It worked so well with the Blending solution and the inks. I used an air blower to move the ink. It dried super fast but until it was still tacky, I added some golden foil. I simply rubbed it over the sticky parts, so easy and beautiful!

When it was all dry, I die cut the panel with an A2 Stitched rectangle die from MFT and assembled the card.

I white heat embossed a sentiment from Altenew Eid Greeings stamp set on a thin black cardstock strip and adhered it to the card. As a finishing touch I used a green rhinestone in the middle of the eye.

I hope you like my inspiration for today and will come back soon for more!

See you,

Zsofi

Happy Eid

Hello Everyone,

This is just an extra little post to wish all my muslim friends and family a blessed and very happy Eid!

For my card I used the Hello Bluebird Springtime, Heffy Doodle Happy Snappy crocs and the Altenew Eid Greetings stamps along with dies from MFT (Mini stitched scallop rectangles, Stitched Rectangles) and Simon Says Stamp (Hearts). The patterned paper is also from MFT (Tiny check brights).

I coloured the cut sheep with Copics, and cut it out with the coordinating dies. I added a slot with a craft knife around the arms to be able to hold the present. I white heat embossed the sentiment on a black strip of cardstock and die cut a white scalloped rectangle, a stitched rectangle from patterned paper and a red heart. I assembled the card on a kraft card base and popped up the sheep with 3D foam squares. I added some clear shimmer and shine with glossy accents to the present, and emphasized the eyes and nose with a black glaze pen.

I hope you like my clean and simple card today and wish to see you later with another mermaid card 😉

Happy Eid

Hello Everyone,

I am so late posting this, but I wanted to wish all my Muslim friends and family a very happy Eid – in stile, with a handmade card.

I heat embossed the images and sentiments from Altenew on Bristol Smooth cardstock using Versamark and Versafine Onyx Black inks and silver sparkle and clear embossing powders.

Then I blended several shades of Distress Oxide inks: Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot. I spritzed it with water, dabbed it off with a paper towel and gave it some Shimmer Spritz for a subtle sparkle.

Then I die cut the whole panel with a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a white card base.
