Two Cards For Scrapbook Boutique September 2017 Challenge

So yet again I got pretty excited about this month’s challenge at the Scrapbook Boutique Blog and made two cards…For my first card I was inspired by the clouds and the white heart in the moodboard and used a cloud stencil and a heart shaped leaf stamp to create it…and my second card is an interactive shaker card with a very cute cat image from Paper Smooches..

To create my first card,I started with a white front panel and stamped and heat embossed the leaf images at the bottom of the panel…I then coloured in the leaves using blueprint sketch Distress Ink and once dry I created a mask to cover these images so I could create the background next…

I used MFT mini clouds stencil and Distress Inks to create the cloudy background…I used salty ocean and blueprint sketch shades here…

On a piece of blue foil cardstock,I stamped the sentiment using white pigment ink….once dry,I used the coordinating die and a banner die to die cut the sentiment and placed it onto the card front using some sticky craft foam underneath for dimension…

I adhered this front panel to a white card base and then added a few clear confetti to embellish it…I also used my Spectrum Noir glitter pen to add some shine to the leaves…

The second card I created is a bit of fun as I die cut a flap in the front to hide the shaker underneath…I was inspired by the cat image in the moodboard to create this card…I started by die cutting watercolour cardstock for the card front using a large stitched rectangle die…I also die cut a flap in the front…

I stamped and coloured in the cute cat image on the flap and masked it before I started to colour in the rest of the background using Distress Inks…I have used chipped sapphire,blueprint sketch and broken china shades here…I heat embossed the sentiment and also sprinkled water all over this panel for effect…

For the shaker element of my card,I first stamped the same cat upside down on the card base so it seems to be peeking and then masked it before applying some Distress Inks in the area that area…I used tumbled glass and salty ocean here..

I stamped a second sentiment here and then set about creating the shaker well using some foam tape and clear acetate…I filled up the shaker with some red heart sequins and then adhered the front panel to the card base..

I have used white Nuvo Drops to embellish my card…

Using some more silver foil cardstock and black craft foam,I die cut the alphabets h,b and d and adhered them onto the card front…I stamped the words ‘to you’ on a small silver banner and placed it under the die cut word/acronym..

Altenew Flowers & Stencil Embossed Backgrounds

I had only planned one card for today(the one with the Iris flowers)…had all the layers decided and when I was about to emboss the stencilled dots background,I got a bit confused as to which way to face the stencil so that it embosses and not debosses it…not wanting to take the risk,I used another stencil and cardstock to try and find out the right way…and ended up making another card using that ‘practise’ piece…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I started with a plain white card base for my first card and then cut a mat layer from lavender coloured cardstock…the top layer is also white and I have used Distress Inks and  Altenew Halftone Dots stencil to create the pattern…the shades I have used here are carved pumpkin,spiced marmalade and wild honey…with the stencil still in place I embossed the background as well..

On a separate piece of watercolour cardstock,I stamped the Iris flower images using watermark ink and heat embossed them with copper embossing powder..I then coloured them in using watercolour brush pens and hand cut them before placing them on the card front…

I stamped the sentiment on a small white banner and adhered it to the card using craft foam…and finally I have used some copper/brown coloured adhesive pearls to embellish my card…

So as you know,my second card was made from the ‘practise’ piece….once it was embossed using Altenew Sketched Lines stencil,I cut this piece to size and then sponged in some Distress Inks to cover it..I have used wilted violet,scattered straw and shaded lilac shades here…I adhered this front panel to a dark purple card base…

On a separate piece of watercolor cardstock I stamped the Altenew Peonies and leaves and coloured them in using Aquarelle brush pens and a water brush…once dry,I cut them out and placed them on the card….

Two Cards Using One Stamp Set

I love succulents….well,whats not to love…they look beautiful..they come in a lot of variety…you can make multiple plants from one, so new plants are free…they don’t need much work if you have the basics right…they tolerate the weather beautifully…and the list goes on…and today I’m sharing two cards that I have made using the Honey Bee stamp set called Stick With Me…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

My first card has a plain white card base a white top layer as well…I first stamped the planters and cactus,using masks wherever required…and then used weathered wood Distress Ink to sponge in the background as well as the large wall stencil…

I then removed the masks and coloured in the plants using Spectrum Noir markers as well as three other individual flowers which I cut out after colouring in and later placed them near the sentiment…

I used a piece of bright green shimmer cardstock to die cut the sentiment as well as the rectangular frame…using yellow craft foam,I die cut the sentiment again and added it behind the die cut sentiment before adhering it to the card..

To embellish my card I have used Nuvo drops…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

So that was my first try….I planned my second card a bit better…I started with a plain white card base and cut up a white top layer,same size as my card front….I used a small brick stencil and Distress Inks to create the background…I have used fired brick,aged mahogany and tea dye shades here…

On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped and heat embossed all the plants and pots,couloured them all in and cut them out…I placed some of the plants directly onto the top layer and for some I have used foam squares for a bit of dimension…

I couldn’t find the right shade of green for the sentiment label so I used two green shades of my alcohol markers to colour in a bit of paper….I then stamped the sentiment,heat embossed it and cut out the label and adhered it to the card…
