Alcohol Ink Background Birthday Card

My card today has my very first alcohol ink background….after my successful previous effort with my alcohol marker reinker,I decided to get some ‘proper’ alcohol inks…and my goodness how addictive they are…there were so many colours to choose from but I chose to start my collection with some bright colours – no surprises there….

After my background was ready and completely dry,I stamped and gold heat embossed the large doily image…I then used a dotted rectangle die to die cut the top layer and adhered it to a plain white card base…
I die the word smile from light pink card cardstock as well as pink craft foam and adhered it to the card front…I stamped the rest of my sentiment on a die cut banner from the same light pink cardstock and adhered it just below..
On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped and coloured in the little fairy image and cut it out before placing it on my card…and finally to embellish my card I have used some light pink sequins…

You Float My Boat!

It’s summers in Australia…and summers means that the ice cream consumption of our country skyrockets…anyways,for my card today I have used the cone building stamp set to create a kind of a sailboat to go with my sentiment and the border die that I have used repeatedly to resemble waves…

I first die cut the border from white cardstock four times and adhered it to a white panel….I added this panel to a white cardbase and the stamped the images using various colours of Altenew dye inks and then die cut these images using the coordinating dies…for a bit of dimension,I used adhesive foam squares to add these images to my card front…

Celebrate – Rainbows,Unicorns, And Glitter

For the  MFT challenge blog’s The Birthday Project we have to incorporate the word ‘celebrate’ in our birthday card creation….I really love the MFT Magical Unicorns stamp set and thought it would be perfect for my card…

I created the background using Distress Inks and splattered some water for effect…I have used victorian velvet,milled lavender,tumbled glass and salty ocean shades here…I adhered this panel to a plain white card base and started on the other elements for my card….

I first die cut the word ‘celebrate’ using the stitched alphabet die-namics as well as from pink craft foam…I layered these and adhered them at the bottom of the card front…I then die cut a rainbow from white cardstock and coloured it in using Spectrum Aqua markers and water…once dry,I adhered the rainbow to the card as well…

I next stamped and coloured in the unicorn on a piece of white cardstock and cut it out…I adhered it on one end of the rainbow using some adhesive foam squares and adhered the stamped sentiment label on the other end…to embellish my card I have used some clear confetti sequins…

Baby,You’re Perfect

With Valentine’s Day just a couple of weeks away,I wanted to make a few love themed cards…at the same time I don’t want my cards to be specific for just this one occasion…I have used three Mama Elephant stamp sets for my card today and I just love these cute pandas..!!

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by stamping the rays on a white front panel using the citrus burst Altenew dye ink….I then added a green printed DSP at the base of this panel which I have die cut using a scalloped stitched edge die…to add a bit of texture to this panel,I have embossed the edges using a large rectangle die with a scallop and stitched detail (a die by Kat Scrappiness)..I adhered this panel to a plain white card base…
On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped and die cut the panda,heart and clouds images and then adhered them to my card front…I have used adhesive foam squares behind some of these die cuts…
I stamped the sentiment using black ink right in the middle of my card and adhered some tiny gold and red sequins to embellish it..

Foil Background Card For Timeout Challenge #101

I got a bit carried away trying out foiling (successfully) for the first time that I almost missed my submission for Time Out Challenge #101…..somehow all my previous attempts at foiling failed until I followed a video tutorial shared by Linda (A Happy Scramper) a couple of months ago…if you only want to see the foiling part skip to 1:27 on the video….

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I first used a stencil and Deco Foil transfer gel and applied a thin layer on a cardstock panel…once dry( a few hours),I cut a piece of gold foil transfer sheet same size as the panel and placed it between a folded sheet of baking paper and ran it through the hot laminator…I think in all my previous tries,I was using a thick paper which wasn’t letting the heat through and that’s why the foil wasn’t sticking… 
I then used black soot Distress Oxide Ink and sponged it all over the foiled panel and splattered some water for effect…I really like how this ink gave a slate kind of colour rather than black..

Once the panel was added to the card base,I added a few thin strips of gold foil cardstock on it as well as a die cut word ‘happy’ from pink shimmer cardstock…I stamped the word birthday on a small gold label and adhered it above the die cut word…
On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped the little dog and gift image,coloured it in and cut it out before placing it on my card front..

I chose the image with a gift on it as this was the ‘inspired by words’ challenge by Time Out Challenges

Many Thank Ewes

Aren’t these little sheep/ewes absolutely adorable??They are from the MFT stamp set called Ewe And Me Forever….I was going to make this a love theme card as well but changed my mind and made it a thank you card instead… 🙂

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Firstly,I created the background on the front panel using Distress Oxide inks….I used peacock feather,cracked pistachio and salty ocean shades here…I then embossed this panel using a geometric WRMK next level embossing folder…and finally I applied some Nuvo gold mousse mixed with a bit of water on this panel with a wide paint brush…I also splattered some of it on the panel and once dry,I adhered this panel to a plain white card base…
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped the three ewes and coloured them in using Gansai Tambi watercolours…I die cut them with the coordinating dies and also die cut some trees to create the scene on my card…

I didn’t want to cover the background panel with a hill style panel for the sheep and I still wanted the sheep and the trees to be ‘on’ something rather than just simply stuck onto my card….so,I used a scalloped edge die as well as a stitched edge die of the same curvy shape and die cut a thin strip from gold foil cardstock and once it was adhered to my card front,I added all the threes and two of the sheep die cuts…

I stamped the sentiment on a small label that I had die cut from gold foil cardstock as well and then added the third ewe just above it…and finally, embellish my card I have simply added some gold Nuvo drops…

Second Card For Altenew January Inspiration Challenge

Today I’m sharing my second card for the Altenew January 2018 Inspiration Challenge…I really liked the colours from this challenge and wanted to make a flowery card this time…I have not done any colouring in this card but have followed a recent tutorial by Ali (Ali Loves Cardmaking) where she demonstrated some easy alcohol ink techniques on photo print paper with some rubbing alcohol…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
Now I didn’t want to get alcohol inks until I knew that I liked and could work with this technique ,so I really wanted to try it out with the things already had i.e. Spectrum Noir alcohol marker reinkers(sadly they all had almost dried up somehow but I could get just a bit of colour from the bottles)…Anyways,here is the image provided for this month’s challenge…
Once my inked up photo paper was dry,I stamped the flower and leaf images from the Beautiful Day stamp set using Versamark ink and quickly heat embossed them with the Altenew antique gold embossing powder and die cut them with the coordinating dies…
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I didn’t want to adhere these die cuts straight onto the card front,so I added them to a plain white panel first…I had already splattered some picked raspberry Distress Ink as well as some Nuvo gold mousse on this panel before attaching it to the card base…I then adhered all the leaves and flowers to it…I quite like the fact that even after adding so many layers of die cut images,my card wasn’t heavy or thick..

I stamped the sentiment using autumn blaze crisp dye ink and then layered it with a panel on which I had stamped a solid stamp using pinkalicious crisp dye ink…I have used adhesive foam squares to adhere the sentiment onto the card front for a bit of dimension…and finally used some pink sequins to embellish my card…

Learning new techniques has always been the most exciting part of card making for me…and this technique is definitely going to be revisited many times…

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look at my card today…Happy crafting…!!

Rawr Means "I Love You" In Dinosaur!!

While making the card I’m sharing today,I had a constant smile on my face….and that was not only because these Lawn Fawn dinosaurs are super cute and the sentiment is even sweeter…it was also because this card turned out exactly as I had planned(yay!!)…I did have the coordinating dies for the two stamp sets I used in this card,so that made things a bit easier too…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by creating the background on my front panel with Distress Inks…I have used the following shades – antique linen,squeezed lemonade,wild honey and rusty hinge…I then used border dies and various plain coloured cardstock to create the clouds border for the top and hilly border for the bottom of the front panel…I used a large stitched rectangle die to cut of all the excess and finish off the panel neatly before adhering 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 the images I wanted to use from the Lawn Fawn ‘Rawr’ and “Critters from the past’ stamp sets and coloured them in using my Spectrum Noir markers…once I die cut and placed all the images on my card front,I stamped the sentiment..

I did not use any embellishments in my card but I did use some glossy accents on the speech bubbly,the hearts and the bows and added quite a lot of white dots using a gel pen…

I am so glad you took a bit of time to visit my blog today..Hope you will have a happy and blessed day ahead..!!

Wishes – January 2018 Paper Smooches Challenge

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Today’s card is my entry for the Paper Smooches January 2018 Challenge and since the theme was ‘anything goes’, I pulled out my very favorite dog stamp from the Woofers & Tweeters set as well as the Seeing Stars set to create the background…
I started by creating the front panel of my card using some Distress Inks…I sponged in the following shades – tumbled glass,blueprint sketch,wilted violet,chipped sapphire and black soot…I also sprinkle some water for effect..I then randomly stamped the star stamps all over the panel using Versamark ink and the heat embossed them using some silver embossing powder…I then adhered this panel to a plain white card base…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped the dog image using Versafine black ink and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder…I coloured it in and die cut using the coordinating die and placed it on my card front using some adhesive foam squares…

I stamped the sentiment on a small white banner using purple ink and layered it with a larger purple glitter label and adhered them to my card as well…then using the same purple glitter cardstock,I die cut a few stars and used them to embellish my card….I have used foam squares under these stars for a bit of dimension..
