I have loved making cards ever since I was a young girl. Little did I know, when I was making cards with paper, paint, crayons and even mum's lace and sequin supplies that I would keep enjoying this hobby later in life. The cardmaking/paper crafting women and men all over the world are absolutely inspirational and have created this great community which I'm lucky to be a part of.

Huge Birthday Wishes

I’m sharing a cute card today which was very quick to make as well…I have used the MFT grassy edges stencil in this card and I love how it adds depth to the card with actually adding all the layers…which means that it is very very post friendly.. 🙂

I started by adding the grassy edges on a plain white front panel… I haved used various Distress inks with the stencil…I then used a large stitched rectangle die to emboss a border around the panel and then adhered this panel to a plain white card base….
Next, I stamped the giraffe, elephant and little bird images on a separate piece of cardstock and coloured them in using my Zig pens…once dry, I die cut them and adhered them to my card front using some adhesive foam underneath…I also applied some Nuvo glaze on these die cuts for a bit of shine..

Be Happy

Today’s card started with the colourful background that I created using the Perfect Vine stencil and some Distress Oxide inks….I wanted the background to stand out so decided to use die cut words from black glitter cardstock for the sentiment…

On a piece of white watercolour cardstock, I placed the stencil and sponged in some Distress Oxide inks….I have used the shades – picked raspberry, squeezed lemonade and spiced marmalade…I then removed the stencil and used a mini spritzer to spray some perfect pearls mixed with water….this gives the background a nice effect as well as a lot of shine…once dry, I die cut the front panel from it using a dotted rectangle die and adhered it to a plain white card base…

Next, I die cut the words ‘be’ and ‘happy’ from black glitter cardstock as well as from black craft foam and layered them before adhering to my card front…I also added two black heat embossed and die cut leaves from vellum paper which I simply coloured in using a green marker…and to embellish my card I have used a few black Nuvo drops…

Let’s Celebrate You

I am sharing a tall card today…it is 3 1/4 ” x 6 1/2″ and is just perfect for the main feature which is a stem of beautiful Orchid flowers…and to make the flowers ‘pop’ on my card, I have added a layer of thick vellum paper on which I have blended some Distress Ink for a soft look background…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Once my card base was ready, I cut a piece of thick vellum paper slightly smaller than the card front and then applied some peacock feather Distress Ink on it…I also sprinkled some water for effect…
Next, I used Altenew crisp dye inks to stamp the Clearly Besotted orchid oasis layering stamp on a piece of white cardstock…for the flowers I have used sand dunes  and velvet shades of ink, bamboo and olive for the leaves  and mocha shade of ink for the branch…I die cut these images using the coordinating dies and then adhered them to the vellum panel…

On a white label, I stamped the sentiment and adhered it to the vellum panel as well….I hid the adhesive behind the die cut images and the sentiment label at back of the panel to adhere it to the card front…I also added a few sparkling clear sequins to embellish my card…

Colourful Altenew Flowers

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I started by creating the background panel…I chose the Altenew deco wallpaper stencil and used black soot Distress Ink to print the pattern and then adhered this panel to  a plain white card base…I then started on the die cutting, and made sure to keep all the elements of one flower together so as to save time later rather than end up playing jigsaw with the die cuts…ha ha..
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I die cut all the flowers and leaves from watercolour cardstock using the Altenew Rose Flurries 3D die and then used a whole lot of Distress Ink colours to colour the flowers and leaves…once I had all the elements coloured, I used a mist spray mixed with a small amount of Perfect Pearls gold powder and sprayed all the die cuts….once dry, I put all the layers together to make the dimensional pieces…
I tried various layouts for my die cuts, and once I was happy with the layout I simply used the press n’ seal film to keep all the elements in place while I adhered them to the front of my card…

I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and adhered it on the card front and have used some gold confetti sequins to embellish it…

Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Sharing another quick card today….I used Oxide inks to stamp the scribble flower images on the front panel of my card and I already have another idea forming in my head using this MFT circle scribble stamp set…I kept the colours to a minimum for this card and have left a bit of blank space so that the beautiful flowers and leaves remain in focus…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by die cutting the front panel using a large cross stitch rectangle die and then stamped all the flowers and leaves using the following Oxide inks – worn lipstick, seedless preserves, twisted citron, lucky clover…I then adhered this panel on the front of a pink card base…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I stamped the sentiment using seedless preserves Oxide ink with label maker sentiment stamp set and cut them out before adhering them to my card using some adhesive foam for a bit of dimension…

To embellish my card I have added some pink jewels in various sizes..

Easy Colouring Birthday Card

The card I’m sharing today is the easiest and fastest background that I have created….usually I would spend a fair bit of time to colour in all the images, but not this time…I simply added dots of colours with my watercolour markers inside the images and sprayed some perfect pearls mixed with water on it and all my images were coloured in all at once…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I first stamped the leaf and flower images using watermark ink and then heat embossed them with a platinum embossing powder…this embossing helps keep post of the colours within the images when I spray them with the water mixed with perfect pearls powder..I have used Zig clean colour brush markers here..once dry, I adhered this panel to a plain white card base…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I die cut a circle from some vellum paper and adhered the stamped and die cut sentiment on it…I also added some heat embossed and die cut flower and leaf images here….and finally to embellish my card I have added a few pink jewels….

Congratulations Card

One of my top favorite card maker/ blogger is Virginia Lu…..I love her card making style and all her creations so much…and for today’s card I have been highly inspired by Virginia…

I started by creating the front panel on watercolour cardstock….I applied some Distress Inks on the stamps and used a mister spray to spray some water mixed with a bit of perfect pearls and then stamped onto the paper….this gives such a wonderful watercolour look with a wonderful pearly shine as well…once dry, I adhered this panel to a plain white card base…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I then die cut some fine rectangle frames from black glitter cardstock and adhered then on the front center of my card…then, on a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped the sentiment and decided to split it into two labels…I inked the edges and adhered these label using some craft foam…
To embellish my card I have used some sparkling clear sequins and applied some Nuvo glaze on the sentiment labels..
