Project Swap: Lime Color Happy Birthday Card

Swap Project: Floral and Lime theme Happy Birthday Card

Welcome to the first set for our Artist Project Swap with Arjita and Elina. For the Month of May, we challenged our artists to exchange tutorials and create each other’s designs in order to see how each of our artists interprets style and choices. The receiving artist did not know who designed the project, nor did they receive any images! In today’s post, Arjita’s turn to give the directions and recommended supplies list and Elina created the project.

Lime Color Theme Happy Birthday Card by Elina Stromberg

I have to admit that I’m bit rebellious when it comes to detailed project instructions. Reading tutorials and watching instruction videos is always very inspirational, but the projects I make are very seldom precise replicates of the original projects. In case of Arjita’s tutorial, it includes techniques that I’m not familiar with, so I followed the instructions more carefully in order to learn. But once I think I’m mastering the key points, I tend to go my own way, using my own colors, patterns, and supplies.

On this project, I used two green Memento colors for the background in Bamboo Leaves and Pear Tart. For applying the inks on the background, I used a brayer and decorated the inked background with Shimmer Creative Medium. The stencil I used was not the same as on the original project; I used ‘Corncob Etching’ from TCW.

My card is not as monochromatic as the original project; for coloring the stamped flowers I did not use the background color, but yellow Memento in Cantaloupe and Dandelion. The result looks different, but I’m quite happy with the outcome! I did not want to use too much black on my card, so the die-cut circle background is not black but dark green. My nesting Sizzix dies cut quite a wide border, so I narrowed it to half with my scissors.

by Arjita Sepaha Singh

For the month of May, Imagine challenged the Artists in Residence with a project swap. We were matched up with another team member and exchanged tutorials. I am working with Elina’s Stromberg’s instructions and product recommendations. I loved the swap and it was such a great way to try different creative styles. The original supplies list used VersaMark and Vintage Plum Embossing Powder. Since I did not have was the plum embossing powder, I used a plumy color of ink with clear powder.

by Arjita Sepaha Singh

Do you have a friend who you would like to show appreciation? Water coloring stamped images is my favorite cardmaking style and I am always on a hunt for new mediums to use for the water colored effect. In this video, I used Altenew stamps, Gold embossing, and Fireworks Shimmery Craft Sprays to create this beautiful yellow rose friendship card and it turned out very pretty. This is a great crafting project for a best friend gift or to show someone you care.

DIY Stamping with VersaFine Clair Inkpad on Canvas Shoe

I love altering and customizing things and shoes are one of my favorite things to upcycle. In today’s video, I show you how to take an inexpensive pair of plain white canvas shoes and stamp them with various floral images. I used VersaFine Clair and Fabrico Markers for this project. One of the coolest aspects of this project is that you can choose whatever stamps and images that are best for you!

How to Make Fun Shapes with Radiant Neon Amplify

by Arjita Sepaha Singh

I wanted to try the Radiant Neon Amplify Texture to create fun shapes for kids and decided to use stamps as well as some free hand skills. I stamped an egg, a strawberry, the moon and others with a light colored ink and then covered the stamp with a layer of various Amplify colors. Always preheat the heat tool before applying heat to the Amplify. This puffs the pigments quickly. Always clean the nozzle and cap the bottle after use.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour +
