CrafTangles October Blog Hop 2018 - Eid Cards

Happy Tuesday,

It's the CrafTangles October Blog Hop and I hope you'll join in as there are only 3 blogs to hop plus a British blogger won one of the prizes last month.  As they say, you have to be in it to win it!

We were tasked with using a range of new stamps and stencils to include the Hindu festival of Diwali, the Muslim festival of Eid together with the Warli tribes and Faces of India.

I chose to concentrate on the Eid stamps and stencils.  Actually the next Eid isn't for another 8 months but at least I'm ahead of my cardmaking for a change!  It's like starting Christmas cards in July........


There are actually very few companies that I know of which have produced Eid stamps and stencils so I was most excited about getting these!


For my first card I used glimmer paste through a stencil on top of a distress ink blended background.  I heat embossed the sentiment and added bling to finish.


Next up I used distress inks again for the topper background creating a sunset.  I used black gesso through a stencil for the card base and distress inked the edges.  Finally, I heat embossed the stamped image finishing with some star gems.


My final card is a more modern one - I loved creating the background on this one by using distress inks through a stencil and a simple gold heat embossed Eid sentiment was all it took to finish.

Below are the blogs you need to comment on for the October hop and you can find more information HERE:
