Sending Smiles Across The Miles

Another funny card today….and I have been laughing so much while making this one…the expressions on the faces of these Katzelkraft monsters are absolutely hilarious and just perfect for my card….I also decided to  use frames for these images to add some interest and depth to my card…

I die cut the front panel from white cardstock and sponged in some Distress inks to create the background…I have used crushed olive, antique linen, milled lavender and victorian velvet shades of inks…I splattered some water for effect and set this panel aside to dry….

I stamped the monster images on a piece of white cardstock and coloured in the face portions only…..I then die cut the images using the Lawn Fawn mini picture frames dies….I die cut one more set of frames from white card stock and layered the outside frames to add dimension…

Once I knew where my frames were going to be placed on my card, I stamped the sentiment on the front panel and adhered it to a plain white card base…I adhered all the frames to my card and then added some tiny pink stars to embellish it..

Smile Crocodile

I have finally been able to try one of the techniques shared by Jennifer McGuire for stamping on Kraft cardstock and getting brighter results from coloured ink…the trick it seems is to stamp first with white pigment ink and then with the coloured ink…and any kind of a stamping tool like the MISTI or TH stamp platform would definitely come in handy…although for my card I have used a stencil not stamps but the process is the same…

After cutting the front panel to size, I used a circle stencil with an inking sponge to apply unicorn white ink and then various Oxide inks to create my pattern…once completely dry,I stamped the chevron grid background stamp covering this panel with watermark ink and then heat embossed it with a super fine pearl embossing powder…I adhered this panel to a Kraft cardstock card base and started on the other elements of my card..

I stamped the cute koala and crocodile on a piece of white cardstock and coloured them in using Zig  pens and a water brush…I die cut them using the coordinating dies and set them aside….I die cut the word smile from white cardstock ) which I coloured blue using salty ocean Oxide ink and two more time from Kraft cardstock and layered them before adhering to the card stock..I stamped the word ‘crocodile’ on a white label and placed it below the large word…

All Of Me And My Dragons

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I applied some Distress Oxide inks on my craft mat and sprayed some water….I then used a glossy cardstock and smooshed that ink onto the paper,drying it with a heat gun and repeating the process…I have used black soot,wilted violet,squeezed lemonade and lucky clover shades of oxide inks…once there was enough colour and layers on this panel and it was completely dry, I applied some Distress glaze and buffed it with a soft cloth before adhering it to a plain white card base…

I die cut two city backgrounds…one using black cardstock and another from grey cardstock….I adhered the black one to the card front and reversed the grey one, lightly inked the edges and adhered it on front of the black one using some adhesive foam…
Next, I stamped and coloured in all the images and die cut them and adhered them to the card…I stamped the sentiment on a white label and added some tiny rhinestones to embellish my card..

Life Is Tough,But So Are You

I’m sharing another colourful card today…this one is an encouragement card and in this card I have used an MFT striped background panel die to create the front panel..the little tiger was a last minute addition, but I think it was just perfect for my card…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by die cutting the striped background panel from 110lb white cardstock….I took out the inside sections of this panel and sponged various Distress Oxide inks in the shades of the rainbow….I then die cut another background panel from a colourful dotted paper and adhered that to the white die cut before placing it on a plain black card base,,,I then inserted and adhered the coloured in sections inside…

Next, I die cut the large word ‘YOU’ from black card stock and placed it on the card front….I used white embossing powder to stamp the rest of the sentiment on a black label and adhered it above the large word…I stamped and coloured in the little tiger image and cut it out before placing it just above the sentiment….and finally to embellish my card I have simple added some black Nuvo drops…

Alcohol Inks Rainbow Background – Happy Birthday Wishes

Last week we and our city suffered the after effects of almost record breaking downpour and really bad weather…one of our rooms got flooded too and my home has been a mess ever since…and it’s quite cold too..so I thought that a rainbow card was just what I needed to cheer me up…!!

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I simply dropped some alcohol inks on Yupo paper and set it aside to dry…..and once dry I cut it to size for a front panel and adhered it to a plain white card base…
Next, I die cut the word happy twelve times from thick white card stock so that I could layer the six die cuts that I needed for my card….I adhered these die cut words in a sort of a pattern on the card front…

I stamped and coloured in the bunny and the banner and then die cut them before adhering them to the card…I also added a die cut sentiment banner with ‘birthday wishes’ stamped on it…and finally to embellish my card I added quite a few white Nuvo drops…

Pretty Pink Flowers For Scrapbook Boutique May Challenge

I was inspired by one of the pictures in this month’s mood board for the Scrapbook Boutique challenge…..but I did not have any stamps that were long stems with flowers….that would have been so easy….but this is a challenge..and the reason why I love such challenges is that they make you think creatively…so I masked the images and extended them to get the look that I wanted…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Here is the mood board for this month’s challenge…I chose to replicate the pink flowers and the embossing is idea was inspired by the tea cup..for the die cut sentiment I chose the colour of the berries..
I started by stamping the flowers a few times on a white watercolour panel with watermark ink and heat embossed them with rose gold embossing powder…to extend the branches, I simply masked the top flower and buds and repeated the process….I coloured in the flowers with my brand new Zig  clean colour  markers and I washed the background with a very light blue watercolour…once dry, I heat embossed half of the sentiment with the same rose gold embossing powder and adhered this panel to a plain white card base…

I then die cut the word ‘you’ from red glitter cardstock as well as white craft foam and layered them before adhering it on the card….I also die cut three sequins from the same cardstock to embellish my card..

I have really enjoyed making this card for the challenge….thank  you so much for stopping by my blog to take a look at my card…hope you will have a fabulous day ahead…happy crafting..!!

If Friends Were Flowers – Time Out Challenge #109

For ‘Inspired By Words’ challenge #109 at the Time Out Challenges blog, my first idea was to make a flowery card with or without the friend theme…but the more I thought about it, the more I felt like I should make something one of my friends would have a good laugh at….so I chose this funny looking cow stamp from Katzelkraft and made this card…(can you tell I’m a big fan of comedy??)

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

This is the quote for the challenge…

After die cutting the front panel from Bristol Smooth cardstock, I stamped the cow image and the sentiment using Versafine onxy black ink and quickly heat embossed them using clear embossing powder….I then masked the cow and used stencils and Distress inks to create the back ground…
I have used squeezed lemonade and carved pumpkin with MFT radiating rays stencil and mowed lawn and peeled paint Distress inks with MFt drifts and hills stencil…I also splattered a bit of water for effect…

After removing the mask, I coloured in the cow image using a beige Zig maker and a water brush…once dry, I adhered this panel to a plain white card base…
On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped, clear heat embossed and coloured in the little flowers and die cut them with the coordinating dies…I adhered them on the card front and placed one of the flowers(without the stem) above the cow’s teeth using a small foam adhesive square…I used my black Copic multi liner to draw a small stem so it seems that the cow is holding a flower between her teeth…

To finish my card, I added a small coloured in heart and used Nuvo glaze on all the flowers for a bit of shine..
Hope my card made you smile as well…thank you for stopping by my blog today…Happy crafting..!!

Ornamental Flowers For Altenew May Inspiration Challenge

I have had so much fun creating this card for the Altenew May 2018 Inspiration Challenge…I got very inspired by the three colours for the challenge and wanted to create a dark background for the gold embossed flowers and leaves…swapping the colours for the leaf and flowers was a very last minute idea and I think it works…what do you think..??

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Here is the image and colours provided for this challenge by Laura Bassen

To begin, I covered a watercolour cardstock front panel with Turquiose green watercolour (Gansai Tambi no. 57)…I used the textured side this time and splattered the same colour on the panel once it was dry…
On a piece of white cardstock, I stamped the flower base in ocean waves Altenew dye ink and the leaves in pinkalicious dye ink…I then stamped the next layer with watermark ink and heat embossed it using rose gold embossing powder…the MISTI came in quite handy as I was able to repeat these steps quite easily…

Next, I die cut the flowers and the leaves using the coordinating dies and adhered them to the watercoloured front panel…I cut off the excess from all sides and adhered this panel to a plain white card base…
Since I didnt’t want to add another colour to my card, I used a solid stamp and pinkalicious dye ink to create the pink panel on which I heat embossed the sentiment…I adhered this sentiment label on the card front using some adhesive foam and then added a few gold confetti sequins to embellish my card..

After I die cut the background panel and the die cut meadow border,I covered them with various distress and oxide inks,I lifted some of the ink with a lightly wet stamp shammy..I loved the texture it creates but I think this technique would work really great with dark colours…I added some die cut birch trees to the front panel  and then adhered it to a plain white card base…I also stamped some grass using green ink on the meadow border and adhered it to the card with some craft foam for a bit of dimension..

I stamped, coloured in and cut out the elephant images and adhered them to the card front and then added the die cut and stamped sentiment just above…to embellish my cards I have used a lot of clear confetti sequins as well as some Nuvo glaze on the elephants for a bit of shine..
