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…!!

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..

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..

Vellum Embossed Flowers For The Flower Challenge #20 – Sending Love

While planning today’s card, I wanted to use border stamps and at the same time I wanted the background to be subtle as my vellum flowers and die cut sentiment were going to be quite bright…I usually go for bright and colourful backgrounds for my cards, so this was a good challenge for me..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I will be entering this card for the latest Flower Challenge #20 and the theme for this month is acetate/vellum…
I started by die cutting a white panel for the front of my card using a large dotted rectangle die..then  I stamped the border stamps using Altenew crisp inks – pink diamond and sand dunes..I also heat embossed two strips on this panel using Altenew platinum embossing powder and adhered this panel to a plain white card base…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a piece of Vellum paper, I stamped the flower and leaf cluster twice and heat embossed them using the same platinum embossing powder…I coloured on the back of these images with my alcohol markers and then adhered these to the card, making sure to leave enough space for the die cut word…
I die cut the word ‘love’ twice using stitched alphabet dies and a bright red cardstock and layered them before placing them on the card front…I stamped the other half of the sentiment on a red label using white ink and adhered it just above the die cut word..and finally, to embellish my card I have added some small red and pink sequins..

Wreath Turnabout – 2 Cards

I have tried out a couple of turnabout stamps for creating easy and wonderful backgrounds for my cards,but this new wreath turnabout set(Concord & 9th) has a much smaller pattern and there are two of them in the set…my first thought was to create something with copper embossing and that’s what I did for one of my cards…while on the other card I have simply used various Oxide inks to stamp the pattern…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by stamping one of the wreaths on black cardstock with some watermark ink and then heat embossing it with copper embossing powder….it has to be rotated 90 degrees after each stamping a total of four times to get this result…I also stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and a small heart in the middle of the wreath…
On the front of a plain black card base,I adhered a copper coloured paper cut to the same size as the card front..I cut the embossed black panel to the size required and added some black craft foam underneath then adhered it to the card front and my card was ready…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

For my second card I picked out these shades of Distress Oxide inks to stamp the other wreath in the stamp set – twisted citron, cracked pistachio, peacock feather and evergreen bough…I then added some dots and the sentiment label stamped with aged mahogany…
I didn’t want to add any other colour to my card so I covered the front of the card base with aged mahogany before die cutting the stamped front panel and adhering it to the card base…

These wreath stamps are quite beautiful and versatile…I do hope I can remember to use them to create a few Christmas cards later this year..

You’re Not Getting Old – Shaker Card For MFT Birthday Project

I was so happy to create and add my entry to the challenge at the MFT challenge blog for the Birthday Project as the challenge this time was to make a shaker card….and since it was always my plan to make more shaker cards this year, it was an added bonus for me…also,I found the perfect sentiment to use with these adorable turtles(they usually live a long life)….

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Most of the planning in this card was for the layout of the turtles as they are quite big…so I started by stamping and colouring in the bird and turtle images and then fussy cutting them…I also die cut two stitched borders from white cardstock and sponged some antique linen Distress Ink on it…I kept these elements aside for later and started on the shaker…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

First I created the background panel with the mini cloud edges stencil and salty ocean Distress Ink…I then cut a blue glitter panel same size as the card front and then used a smaller rectangle die to create a frame…on the back of this frame,I adhered the two hillside edge panels and then stuck an acetate panel..I then adhered a whole lot of foam tape behind this frame to create the shaker well…
I added a lot of clear and sparkly blue sequins inside the shaker well and then adhered the background panel to close and seal the shaker…now this shaker panel could easily be added to the card base…

I stamped the sentiment on the card front and adhered the cut out images as well…I also added a bit of glossy accents on the images for a bit of shine…
Here is a small video of how my shaker card looks….shaker cards are so much fun don’t you think..??

Your Kindness Melts My Heart

It was high time I pulled out Kraft cardstock for a card coz I don’t think I have used it for a card this year….and it’s already May…I have also tried out three new things in this card…a new stamp & die set – Altenew Focus on you, a new embossing powder – Altenew Rose Gold and a new white ink – Hero Arts unicorn white..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

First,I chose a leaf stamp from the stamp set and stamped it repeatedly on a piece of Kraft cardstock front panel using white ink…I have used a couple of small dot stamps as fillers for my background and at the same time making sure I didn’t overcrowd the panel with my stamping…I adhered this panel to a Kraft card base and added a white die cut lace border on it…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a piece of white cardstock,I stamped and heat embossed the sprint flowers as well as the sentiment using rose gold embossing powder and coloured the images using Spectrum Aqua markers and a water brush…I cut out the sentiment and layered it with a Kraft layer before adhering it to the card front and then die cut the flowers and placed them behind the sentiment…
