Post#190 – HBD2U Card

So if you are into texting,tweeting etc.,then you know it’s quite normal to use abbreviation (of the whole sentence) to wish someone on their birthday….and many other greetings…
My card today has a dark pink card base and the top layer is a Stampin Up DSP called Its My Party…I die cut two sizes of stitched circles and layered them….then I die cut the alphabets H,B & D from pink glitter cardstock and adhered those to the top circle….
I then cut a gold banner and a pink banner and layered them….again I die cut 2 and U from white glitter cardstock and adhered it to the banner….this was placed under the circles….
I have used gold and pink sequins to decorate the card….the DSP is black and closely printed so there wasn’t much scope to add anything else…
Hope you liked this card….thanks for stopping by to take a look…

Post#189 – You Brighten My Day Card

I have now started paying attention to all the small/tiny stamps in my collection,and am having a lot of fun by making card backgrounds using them….
The card base is a plain green one….and the top layer is white on which I have repeatedly stamped the small apple,orange and pear stamps….and because the background turned out so bright,I chose a sentiment that reflected the mood of the card….’you’ word has been die cut from red glitter cardstock and placed on the card…I then stamped the words ‘brighten my day’ underneath…
I added two strips of gold and green glitter cardstock on one side and also added a few rhinestones under the sentiment….
Hope you liked this card…

Post#188 – Card For A Friend

This card was a mixed bag in terms of how I wanted it to turn out….though still quite close to how I planned it, one step didn’t give good results and another one turned out fantastic….
The card base is plain black 4.5 x 5.75 inches…the top layer is made from watercolour cardstock on which I have used a stars stencil to dab Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder…somehow the stars didn’t come out that well and that was a bit of a disappointment but I carried on…..I then washed the top layer with three shades of blue and let it dry….
I then used a small paperclip to attach a note paper with the Polaroid frame and attached these to the card…I have used a few silver star sequins to decorate the card as well…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#187 – Bright Birthday Card

I love the versatility of distress inks….they blend so well and also react with water/liquids to create a great dimension to any design…
For today’s card, I started with a white plain cardstock base…The top layer is also white but has been coloured in with bright distress inks…once it was fully covered,I misted an embossing folder with a water filled spritzer and quickly stamped the top layer and dried it with a heat gun…then stamped the sentiment and used gold heat embossing powder for it…….I also added two thin strips of glitter cardstock at the base of the top layer before adhering it to the card base….
I stamped and coloured in the image of a little girl on a separate piece of cardstock and then cut it out….I have used adhesive sponge squares underneath the image to make it pop up on the card….and finally I have added quite a few sequins to decorate the card…
Hope you liked this one…

Post#186 – Card Kit Cards

I have never ever tried card kits before…I always felt that those are for people who want to try making cards without much of their own input and still end up with something beautiful…but when I saw the Hip Hip Hooray card kit on the Stampin’ Up website,I thought I’d give it a try and find out exactly how these kits work….
This particular kit is very generous and has enough materials to make 20 lovely cards….but I decided to make only 4 of those as per the designs shown in the kit….the rest I will be making as per my liking and with some my own embellishments,stamps,etc…..
Hope you liked these cards…I liked the result but I will be trying out something different with this kit soon…I also think that giving someone crafty a small card kit would be a good gift idea as well…

Post#185 Colourful Celebrate Card

When it comes to using black cardstock for making cards,I have to really think hard to come up with a design which doesn’t use any stamping at all….coz for me,no matter how much effort I put in…as soon as I stamp on black cardstock,it never works…but I’m not going to stop using black….
On a plain black cardstock base I have used a black top layer as well and rounded only two ends of the card…I then used a stitched scalloped border die to die cut strips in various colours and adhered them to the card….I added a strip of gold glitter cardstock at the top….
The sentiment is a wood veneer word which has been glued to the card….and I have used a few black sequins as embellishments….
Hope you liked this card…

Post#184 Just Saying Hello

I’ve had this stamp set called Bubblegum Hills by Kaisercraft for a verrrryy long time but I haven’t used it at all…every time I got the stamps out, I put them back as I had no idea what to create with it….and today I’ve finally put them back after using one of the stamps in the set…
The card base is plain blue…For the top layer I have used distress inks to create a bright background….I then stamped the image with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder…
The sentiment is stamped on a green banner and heat embossed as well…I did not want to add any more colours to this card so I used clear sequins to decorate it….
Hope you liked it…

Post#183 A Million And One Thanks

Unlike the previous cards which were quite bright and colourful, today’s card has very soft colours…..
The card base is light grey and the top layer is plain white….I have stamped various feather stamps on the top layer with light blue,grey and black ink…
For the sentiment,I stamped it on a small white rectangle piece of card  and rounded two opposing corners….I added a grey layer underneath it before adhering it to the card with foam squares….I have also added a few tiny blue rhinestones on the card…
It’s a simple card and I hope you liked it….

LEAP DAY SPECIAL BLOG POST – No Fuss Colouring Technique Cards

It’s the 29th of February and I’m going to celebrate this day which comes only once in four years….I don’t know if my blog will still be running four years from now….so I’ve decided not to number my post for today….not only that,I’m sharing a special technique that I’ve learn’t from the latest issue of Australian Cardmaking,Stamping and Papercraft magazine (Vol. 22 No.8)..

The no fuss colouring technique tutorial was by Marion Vagg and her card was so pretty….She has used the back of cling stamps to stamp with coloured ink first and then the right side with black ink…..now the thing we have to be really careful about is the fact that the stamp has to be a symmetrical one or else it won’t work…
I got such good results from this technique that I went ahead and made two cards….The first one is a Hello card in which I have used my marigold stamp and in the second card I have used balloon stamps to make a Birthday card….
It’s a great technique to teach kids as well….
Hope you liked my cards….
