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…

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..

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…

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…

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..

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..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
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…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

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…
I’m glad you stopped by to take a look at my card….Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

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…
