Leafy Birthday Cards

I am sharing two cards that I have made with the Altenew Leaf Canopy stamp and die set….In my first card I have tried out a light wash of the Altenew watercolours for the background and for my second card, I have used the fadeout inkpad by ink on 3 to try out a no line colouring effect…need to practice a bit more with this inkpad but I think it’s a good start…

Colourful Birthday Cards

The cards I’m sharing today were very quick to make using the new MFT stencil called Ray of Light with Distress/Distress Oxide inks…I have quite a few more ideas for this stencil which hopefully I will try out soon!
I used squeezed lemonade and mustard seed Oxide inks to lightly cover the background panel and then used the stencil with carved pumpkin and spiced marmalade shades….I stamped, coloured in and die cut the images from MFT Knight in shining armor stamp set and added a narrow grass border die cut from green glitter cardstock at the base of the panel ad then adhered the die cut images…I added the front panel to the card base and stamped the sentiment and added some Nuvo drops to embellish my card..

For my second card, I first lightly applied some tumbled glass Distress ink and then used the following inks with the Ray of Light stencil to create the rainbow effect – wilted violet, blueprint sketch, salty ocean, mowed lawn, mustard seed, spiced marmalade and candied apple…I stamped and coloured in the images from MFT Magical Unciorn stamp set, die cut them and applied a bit of glitter marker on them before adhering to the card front…I stamped the sentiment and adhered this panel to the card base…

I hope my colourful cards made you smile today…thank you so much for stopping by…have a happy and crafty day ahead…!!

Lawn Fawn Magic Picture Changer Card

I have finally tried out the Lawn Fawn magic picture changer die to create my very first picture changer card…It was quite easy to understand and assemble and probably the one main thing you need to make sure you do right is to stamp the images on the right part…

Once my picture changer was stamped, coloured in, die cut and assembled I added a white die cut frame on the front which is an add-on die for the magic picture changer…I then adhered this section onto a card base on which I have used one of the sheets from the Really  Rainbow paper pack..

I thought a lot about whether to add any embellishments on this card and finally decided to leave it as is….

Avery Elle Peek-A-Boo Pets – Three Cards

I was having so much fun with the Avery Elle Peek-a-boo Stamps and die set that I made three cards in one go…how good is that!!

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
First I made an anniversary card using the hedgehog stamp….I stamped and coloured in the images using alcohol markers and die cut using the coordinating dies…on the plain white front panel I added a cloudy background using the MFT mini cloud edges stencil and salty ocean Oxide ink….I then die cut a circle in the front and added the embossed stitched lines as well using the Crafti Potential die set…
I stamped the sentiment on the front panel using Avery Elle simple sentiments stamp set then adhered the hedgehogs behind the circle window and added a glitter cardstock behind it…I added a couple of die cut hearts and adhered the front panel to a plain white card base…

Wishing You Happiness – Stamped Shaker Card

A couple of weeks ago I saw a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire where she made many adorable stamped shaker cards…you do need stamps with a coordinating die for this technique and it was quite a simple and easy process…I think I’ll be making a few more of these soon!!

I stamped and gold heat embossed a large feather die on a white panel from Earth Has Music stamp set by Simon Says Stamp and coloured it in using Zig markers..I added a piece of white foam negative section which I die cut using the coordinating die….I added some gems and closed the shaker section using a piece of acetate…

I used the coordinating die again to die cut on the front panel and adhered the feather shaker piece underneath…there are lots of ways to create/assemble this shaker card but this is just how I did this one…I added a bit of Distress Inks on the edges of the front panel and adhered a stamped sentiment strip as well as some gold confetti sequins to embellish my card…
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog….Hope you will have a cheerful and blessed day today..Happy crafting!!

Two Stenciled Background Birthday Cards

Today I’m sharing two flowery birthday cards in which I have used stencils to create the backgrounds…stencils are still my no. 1 favorite craft products that I use to create backgrounds for my cards….and of course Distress/Oxide Inks as well…
For my first card background I have used cracked pistachio Distress Ink with the Altenew sunburst stencil and then splattered some gold paint in the background…I die cut all the floral elements from white cardstock and the coloured them in using Zig watercolour markers and used a sparkle marker to add a bit of shimmer to these die cuts…once I was happy with the arrangement, I adhered it to the card front and added the stamped sentiment label…I have added a few gold confetti sequins to embellish my card..
To create the background for my second card, I first applied pine needles Distress Oxide ink all over the front panel and let it dry for a few mins..I then used the Altenew Feathered Leaves Stencil and twisted citron oxide ink to print the pattern…from a piece of black cardstock, I die cut the word ‘wishes’ three times and layered them together…I also applied some Nuvo gloss on this to make it shiny…
I stamped and die cut the Altenew folksy florals from white cardstock and arranges them on the card front…I also added a small pink label with the word ‘birthday’ stamped on it.. 
Thanks for visiting today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!

Cheeky Meerkat Birthday Card

I have always loved all the stamps by Katzelkraft and especially the unique and funny expressions that the characters have…I wanted the stamped image of the meerkat  to be the main focus of my card so I used stencils and Oxide inks to create the background….

On the front panel I first used MFT Radiating Rays stencil and the following Oxide inks – squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, carved pumpkin and spiced marmalade and then used the MFT Grassy Edge stencil and lucky clover Oxide ink near the base to create an area where I would place the stamped image…

On a separate piece of cardstock,  stamped and coloured in the image using alcohol markers then cut cut it out and placed on my card front using some adhesive craft foam…the sentiment has been stamped on a small white banner and to embellish my card I have added a few clear confetti sequins..

Love Is In The Air – Two Valentine’s Day Cards

With Valentine’s Day just a couple of days from now, love is definitely in the air…and today I am sharing two cute cards that I made for Valentine’s Day..

For both my cards I created a similar background using Distress Inks and grassy edges stencil and mini cloud stencils by MFT….
I stamped the pig and cow  from Avery Elle Hogs and Kisses stamp set on a separate piece of white cardstock and coloured them in using my alcohol markers…I stamped a sentiment on the large heart and covered those with Nuvo Glaze for a shiny effect…
I stamped one more sentiment directly on the background panel….this sentiment is from Avery Elle Love Notes stamp set…I adhered the pig and cow to the card front and finally I stamped a couple of tiny red hearts and my cards were ready…
