Father’s Day Cards

I had made a few simple Father’s Day cards for this year…Father’s Day in Australia was this past Sunday and luckily for where we are, the weather was great and we were able to enjoy a beautiful spring afternoon…

The main element of all my cards is the shirt die from Workers Big Guys – Dressed to Impress which I used with a few different 6×6 printed paper stacks by MFT, DCWV etc…

For the background of two of my cards, I used the Taylored Expressions square windows stencil and for the other card I used Altenew plaid cover die…

The sentiments on these cards are from Avery Elle and Lawn Fawn stamp sets..

Thanks for stopping by my blog today…hope you will have a bright and cheerful day ahead..!!

Bird, Flowers And Leaves – 3 Altenew Slimline Birthday Cards

Trying out slimline cards these days has been great, especially as I have been able to use my favourite stamp sets yet again to create unique cards…the cards I’m sharing today use various Altenew stamp and die sets and didn’t take too long to make..

I stamped the Altenew Bird Of Paradise stamp set on a piece of watercolour cardstock and used the following Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers to colour them in – sweet leaf and lime for the leaves and fresh lemon and sunkissed for the flower…

I die cut the front panel from black cardstock and splattered citrine Altenew metallic watercolor all over…I stamped the sentiment from Floral Frame stamp set and heat embossed it using an Orange embossing powder from Ranger and then die cut using Apothecary labels die…I layered the sentiment label with a larger die cut from white cardstock….I adhered all the elements to the card front and added a few rhinestones to embellish it..

For my second card, I first used the Feeling Dotty stencil on the background panel and then added the stamped leaf springs from Fragile Foliage randomly all over the card front…I have added an extra layer of die cut under the stamped images to give a bit of support as the die cut was quite thin and adding foam tape for dimension wouldn’t have worked for this image..

I stamped the sentiment from Birds Of A Feather on a black strip and used gold glitter embossing powder to heat emboss it…I also added a little bird image to the card front and some green rhinestones to embellish it…

For my third card, I first created the background on the front panel using Simon Says Stamp Solar Burst Stencil with Distress Oxide inks…

I used Altenew Stunning Cosmos Stamp set and heat embossed the images using the Altenew Antique Gold embossing powder…I coloured them in by simply swishing them on a watecolour that I sprayed on my craft mat…once dry, I adhered these flowers onto the card using foam squares…

I die cut a vellum circle and used the Hello And Hugs set for the sentiment…and to embellish my card I have used gold Nuvo drops..

I hope you liked the cards I shared with you today…thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog…hope you will have a happy and crafty day ahead..!!

Pink Peonies Slimline Birthday Card

I love Altenew 3D dies…mostly because they don’t need to be coloured in… for every stamped image I colour in, I still ruin one…mostly due to impatience…ha ha..drawing and colouring is definitely not my forte..

For today’s card, I die cut all the elements from Altenew Peony Dream 3D die using watercolor cardstock and used the Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers to colour in all the layers….once dry, I glued all the layers for the flowers and leaves and also splattered some white gouache for effect…

I cut the background panel to size for the slimline card and used the Altenew Ink Blending Tool and a few Distress Inks to create the background…I placed all the flowers and leaves on the card front and stamped the sentiment from Altenew Candlelight stamp set on a white label and layered it with a blue cardstock before adhering it to the card front…

Thank you for taking the time to view my card today…Hope you will have a wonderful and blessed day ahead…

Mission Control, We Have A Birthday!

I had so much fun making this card and I love how bright and cheerful it turned out…

I started by ink blending the background panel with various shades of blue Distress Oxide inks and then used some Ranger texture paste with Lawn Fawn Starry Sky stencil for a nice textured background..

I die cut the rocket using the MFT Blast Off die and coloured in all the pieces before assembling them…I then stamped and coloured in various images from MFT BB Space Explorer stamp set and die cut them before adhering them to the card front..

I stamped the sentiment on a white strip of cardstock and layered it with some silver glitter cardstock and added it to my card front…I added some star sequins to embellish my card..

I’m so thankful you stopped by my blog today…have a happy and crafty day..!!

Birthday Cake And Koala

Today I’m sharing a bright and colourful birthday card…I stated with the idea that I wanted to make a cute card with lots of shiny and shimmery elements…

I first stamped and coloured in the Koala and cake image from Pretty Pink Posh stamp set called Party friends…I die cut the image using the coordinating dies and set it aside…

I then die cut the Spring Frame by Pretty Pink Posh from watercolour cardstock and then sprinkled various Nuvo Shimmer Powders on it and spritzed water on it for the colours to activate…I dabbed all the excess water with a paper towel and then used my heat gun to dry this frame…

I chose a bright blue glitter cardstock for the front panel of my card and then adhered the die cut frame to it…I also added the die cut image and a small label for the sentiment…

Thank you so much for stopping by…hope you will have a happy day ahead..!!

Altenew Dahlias Birthday Card

This month seems to be flying by…I have been making cards as always but somehow have not been able to find the time to share them…the card I am sharing with you today uses the Altenew Craft-a-flower Dahlia die set to create the beautiful layered flowers as the main focus of my card..

Using the Altenew Gradient Cardstock packs – Summer Afternoon for the flowers and Green Meadows set for the leaves, I die cut the various layers and glued them together using liquid glue and set them aside..

On a plain yellow front panel, I randomly stamped the outline flowers from the Altenew Dahlia Blossoms stamp set with Chamomile ink and then adhered it to the plain white card base…I then added all the leaves and flowers to the card front..

On a layered yellow cardstock label, I stamped the sentiment using Paper bag crisp ink…the sentiment is from Altenew Just Jasmine stamp set…and finally to embellish my card, I have used the orange marmalade Nuvo jewel drops..

Thank you for taking the time to view my creation…hope you will have a happy and crafty day ahead..

Three Amigos Slimline Birthday Card

Today I’m sharing a bright and colourful slimline birthday card using Mama Elephant stamps and dies…this card was almost going to be a shaker card…almost..but I decided not to at the last minute…

I started by stamping the little critters from Mama Elephant Three Amigos stamp set and coloured them using alcohol markers…I die cut these images using the coordinating dies and stamped the sentiments on the signs each one of the critters if holding…I also applied a bit of Nuvo glaze on the signs and set these aside to dry while I assembled the rest of the card…

Using the Slim Card Basics dies from Mama Elephant, I die cut the two panels which I will layer on the front of my card…I used ripe persimmon and wilted violet Oxide inks on the scalloped layer and salty ocean and blueprint sketch to the top panel..

I assembled all the elements of my card on a plain white card base and added some rhinestones and tiny pink star sequins to embellish it..

So happy you stopped by my blog today…thank you…hope you will have a beautiful and blessed day ahead..!!

Unicorns And Hedgehogs Birthday Slimline Cards

After making a couple of tall slimline cards, I decided to make long/landscape ones…for the cards I’m sharing today, I pulled out a couple of my favourite sets from MFT stamps..

For my first card I choset the MFT Magical Unicorns stamp set and stamped all the images, coloured them with alcohol markers and set them aside…I then placed the MFT Starry Sky stencil on the front panel of my card and applied some iridescent Gina K Glitz glitter gel and let it dry for a few minutes…

I die cut the clouds using Mama Elephant Slimline Card Basics and applied some salty Ocean Oxide ink on the edges before adhering them to the front panel…I also added a rainbow behind the clouds which I die cut using MFT Rainbow Whimsy die and coloured in with alcohol markers…

I added all the unicorns to the card front and added a die cut stitched frame as well…the sentiment is from MFT Label Maker Sentiments stamp set and has been heat embossed using Ranger magenta embossing powder…

I chose the MFT Happy Hedgehogs stamp set for my second card…once all the images were stamped, coloured in and die cut – I started on the ink blending for my background panel…I used the following Oxide inks – Fossilized Amber, Mustard Seed and Ripe Persimmon..

Using a couple of shades of green cardstock, I die cut and added the ‘ground’ where all my hedgehogs would be sitting….after adding the hedgehogs, I added some mushrooms and foliage to the scene…the foliage is from MFT Beautiful Blooms stamp set….

I stamped the sentiment from MFT Make A Wish stamp set directly on the front panel and added some black Nuvo Drops to embellish it..

Thanks heaps for taking the time to view today’s blog post…hope you will have a happy and blessed day ahead!!
