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 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..

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..!!

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..
