A Tri-Fold Card from Ishani

Today we are sharing Ishani’s final project from her January guest series. If you missed her other January cards then click HERE and HERE. We are loving Ishani’s projects and are happy to announce she will be back as a guest later this year.

Be sure to follow Ishani on IG @quill_ish or through her blog Quillish. She also has a You Tube channel, Ishani S.

Are you ready for some cute chicks? Ishani’s card features the chicks from the Merry Christmas Chicks stamp set skiing in the mountains.

This card seems simple at first, but then once the belly band comes off, each side of the card opens up.

Pizza Fun with Guest Ishani

We have a special guest joining us with a series of posts this week! Welcome Ishani! She is starting us off with some food fun filled with love!

I am Ishani from India, known as Quillish to the crafting world, and I am super excited to be a guest designer for Your Next Stamp! I am an Indian Air Force veteran and now a stay-at-home mom, loving time with my kid and crafts. I started paper crafting with paper quilling five years back. I was introduced to stamping in 2017, and there has been no looking back. I enjoy coloring and creating scenes. Though I am still learning and experimenting, I tend to have a clean and simple style in my cards.

You can follow me on my Instagram @quill_ish

Now on to some pizza fun with Ishani’s card featuring stamps from Carnival Food Fun!

Ishani added faces to each slice of pizza to create a happy pair.

Ishani will be back tomorrow with more fun! Be sure to check out her You Tube channel for a video on the creation of her pizza card.

Happy Stamping!
