Diwali Cards with Stencils and a Video Tutorial

It's a happy and festive time of year! Diwali! North, South, East or West, all over India, everyone is happy during Diwali! Whether it's the sweets, or the gifts or the new clothes or family time or my personal favourite - teen patti - everyone loves Diwali! ItsyBitsy loves Diwali too! They've got a range of really fabulous Diwali Stencils, designed to help you make professional, thematic and very stylish Diwali cards.

For this card, I used the Diwali Flower Pot part of the stencil along with embossing powder and a heat gun to create this fabulous focal feature. There is just one flower pot in the stencil but I just replicated the design 3 times. Love this card not just because of how it turned out but also because flower pots are my favourite crackers. No noise, only pretty lights! To see how I created this effect, don't miss the video tutorial at the end of this post. 

For my second card, I used the Diya stencil with some alcohol markers. I used the stencil as a guide and with a marker outlined the entire drawing. Then I moved the stencil aside and coloured it. As a final touch, I used an ink pad to edge the sides with orange ink. Again, a video of how I did this is at the end of this post. 

Finally a Diwali Lantern Card. This time I used an ink pad with the stencil to create the design and then fussy cut the shape so that it would be a stand-alone embellishment. Isn't that fun! And here's the much awaited tutorial.
