Birthday Magnolias

I have become such a big fan of the Distress Blending Brushes now…no matter how much I tried with my ink blending, I would always put on too much ink on paper and never get the soft and light results that I really wanted at times…today’s card has layered stamped from Clearly Besotted stamps with a light Distress Ink background using the blending brush..

On a piece of white cardstock,I stamped the Magnolia flowers and leaves using Altenew Inks….I have used frosty pink, pinkalicious, pink diamond and rubellite the flowers and for the leaves and stem I used mocha, parrot and forest glades…I then die cut these flower and leaves using the coordinating dies and set them aside…

I then cut watercolour cardstock to size for the front panel and applied some tumbles glass Distress Ink using the distress blending brush…I also splattered some water for effect as well as some black paint…once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment and adhered this panel to the card base….

I adhered the flowers to my card front and add some clear Nuvo drops to embellish it..

Just For You

I’m sharing a clean and simple card today….usually I get stressed out with these kind of cards as I end up with the clean area of my card left ‘not so clean’…but I was quite happy this one stayed clean or else I would have had to go all out with embellishments like I usually do…ha ha..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I started by stamping the images on watercolour cardstock using some Versafine black ink and then heat embossing them with a clear embossing powder…I then used Zig clean colour markers and a water brush to colour in these images…the clear embossing helped as it stopped the colour bleeding out of the lines and stay contained inside the images…

Once dry, I adhered this panel to a plain white card base and added a stamped sentiment label with some adhesive foam…and finally, to embellish my card I have added some Nuvo jewel drops…

Many Thanks

I had started today’s card with an intention to create a bit of depth on my stamped panel simply by adding 2nd generation stamping as I have seen Jennifer McGuire do in many of her cards and tutorials…but as you can see, it didn’t work out for me…but I still did manage to create a lovely card in the end…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I stamped the flowers and leaves on a plain white front panel using various pink, purple and green shades of Altenew crisp dye inks…for those who don’t know what 2nd generation stamping is – simply put, it is when you stamp again immediately after you have stamped…since you don’t reink the stamp, you get a lighter version of the image…this way you are able to add depth and/or dimension to your images without using too many shades of inks…

I stamped the large sentiment using black ink and then adhered this panel to a plain white card base….
then on a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped a few extra leaves and flowers using the same shade of inks and cut them out and placed them just below the sentiment…I  did use some adhesive foam underneath them to add the much needed dimension…

To embellish my card I have added a lot of pink and purple shiny jewels in various sizes…

Warm Wishes – Time Out Challenge #112

The theme for challenge #112 at Time Out Challenges is ‘warm’…and I think viewing the NYE fireworks to ring in the new year gives us a nice warm and happy feeling…and a hope of great things in the coming year…we have always gone out to view the fireworks and this last time we took the dog along too…he didn’t care about the fireworks but loved being with us..!!

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
So I have created this warm wishes fireworks card for the ‘warm’ theme of the challenge…
I started by applying some Distress Inks on a white watercolour cardstock panel to create the night sky…I have used squeezed lemonade, stormy sky, chipped sapphire, weathered wood and black soot shades here…
Next, I started stamping the fireworks stamps – just a few at a time – with watermark ink and heat embossed the images using various shades of metallic embossing powders like gold, silver, platinum, copper, etc…I die cut this panel to size using a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a plain white card base..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped and coloured in the little penguin and cut it out…I stamped the sentiment on a white banner and added a gold foil banner layer behind it before adhering it to the card using adhesive foam squares…I adhered the penguin on and above the sentiment label…and to embellish my card I have used various confetti and star sequins…

Reveal Wheel Birthday Card

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Before putting together all the die cut elements for the reveal wheel, I applied some Distress Oxide inks to create the background…I have used cracked pistachio, peacock feathers and blueprint sketch shades here…I also stamped some tiny confetti all over this panel using unicorn white ink….

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Once I finalised the layout of this panel, I stamped the sentiment using black ink and then assembled the reveal wheel section…I added a stamped, coloured in and die cut dinosaur on this panel as well…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
On a plain white card base, I adhered a diagonally striped colourful printed front panel and then added the reveal wheel on top….I also stamped an arrow and ‘turn the wheel’ stamp to make it easy for the recipient to understand how the card works..
Here is a small video I made to show you how my card turned out…
Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look at my card today….Hope you will have lovely & blessed day ahead..

Two Quick Cards – Birthday & Friendship

There isn’t anything common between the two cards I’m sharing today except that they were both pretty quick to make…every now and then I do like to make simple and quick cards like these ones…the first one is a funny cat birthday card – hilarious actually, that cat has a priceless expression on it’s face don’t you think?….and for my second card I tried out the texture paste again…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I started my first card by die cutting the front panel and then stamped and clear heat embossed the cat, mouse as well as the sentiment…I then coloured in the images using Zig markers and a water brush…once dry, I  sponged some chipped sapphire Distress ink on all edges of this panel and splattered some water for effect…
I adhered this panel to a plain white card base and added some jewels to embellish it..

For my second card, I first sponged squeezed lemonade Distress Oxide ink on the front panel and splattered some water for effect….I then used a stencil and some Distress texture paste to add the pattern only on the base of this panel and set it aside to dry…

Next, I stamped the sentiment on the front panel and then added a frame die cut from a light green glitter cardstock…I adhered this panel to a plain white card base and then added some tiny green sequins and black Nuvo drops to embellish it…

Alcohol Ink Background Card

I seem to get carried away while playing with Alcohol inks and keep forgetting not to cover the whole panel with the ink so there is some blank space on the panel…it was very hard to come up with a design for this background so I decided to keep it simple and just added a large gold die cut and and a heat embossed sentiment…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

For the front panel I have cut Yupo paper to size and added the alcohol inks and a gold mixative as well….once dry, I used a large cross stitch rectangle die to add the detail and adhered it to a plain white card base…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I then die cut the large medallion from gold foil card stock and twice from white cardstock and layered them before adhering to the card front…I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using gold embossing powder and then layered it with a strip of red cardstock before adhering it on top of the medallion…

And last but not the least, I have added a few jewels in various sizes to embellish my card…

Fairy Birthday Wishes For Scrapbook Boutique June Challenge

This month’s challenge moodboard at Scrapbook Boutique is all about spots and dots…I was interested in creating something really colourful but I didn’t get good results so I pulled out my polka dot turn about stamp and created the black and white dotty background for my card….

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

This is the moodboard for this month’s challenge and as you can see, I chose to incorporate the black and white polka dot and the mushrooms on my card…
Once my dotty background was ready and adhered to a plain white card base, I stamped the fairy and mushroom images onto a piece of white cardstock and coloured them in…I cut them out and placed them on the card front…
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
For the sentiment,I die cut a picture fame from silver glitter cardstock as well as white cardstock and layered them…I stamped the sentiment on a white panel and added it to the inside of this frame…I also added a tiny die cut red bow to this frame…
To embellish my card, I have added some silver confetti sequins and then some blue coloured pears on them…

XOXO – Altenew Folksy Florals

Today I’m sharing a card with beautiful flowers in soft colours….or at least softer colours than the bright ones I usually go for..I was very conscious of my colour choices for this one and kept the stencilled background quite light as well….

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I created the background using Altenew grid stencil and cotton candy dye ink on a white front panel which I adhered to a plain white card base…I tried to only sponge the ink on the sides of the panel and leave the centre area as clean as possible since I wanted to add a frame to the card front…
I die cut the frame from gold glitter cardstock using two rounded rectangle dies…I also die cut the same frame three more times from white cardstock and layered them under the gold frame for a bit of dimension…I also die cut the sentiment from the same glitter gold cardstock using inline alpha dies and adhered them inside the gold frame…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped all the flower and leaf images using various shades of Altenew crisp dye inks and then added them to the gold frame…finally I added some pink jewels to embellish my card…
