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….

Post#182 Thinking of You Card

Today I’m sharing a bright and cheerful card….I’m pretty sure whoever receives this card is going to know that the sender was really thinking of them… 🙂
The card base is a bright orange colour and the top layer is plain yellow…I have embossed the top layer using the Lattice embossing folder….I then stamped the flowers and leaves on white cardstock and cut them out…I adhered them onto the card using adhesive foam squares….
I stamped the sentiment on a gold banner and layered another orange one underneath it…and finally added a few gold sequins to decorate the card..
Hope you liked it…

Post#181 Large Gift Bag

I love how this gift bag turned out so I’m really happy to share this with you today….
I have followed the tutorial by the fabulous Sam Donald and made this gift bag…It’s a huge one and can hold heaps of stuff….Here’s the link for her tutorial – It’s My Party Huge Bag
Now I had to change the top folding part in the video….and that was because Sam has used a double sided paper which looks really pretty when folded out at the top….but I’ve used one sided printed paper and didn’t want the plain white to show outside….so I’ve simply skipped that step, and folded the top part downwards and tied a string around it…
I have used two shades of green cardstock for the front panel….the top panel has a gold heat embossed message….and to decorate the panel I have punched out and adhered three small flowers from peach cardstock…
Hope you like my version of the bag…

Post#180 Proud Of You Card

Today I’m sharing another card for which I’ve created the background by stamping…
The card base is plain blue….and the top layer is white….I have used a small square-ish doily stamp and three different shades of blue ink and stamped the doily on it…I then added a strip of blue foil cardstock on one side and adhered a stamped sentiment as well….
To decorate the card I used the sequin dies with the same blue foil cardstock and adhered the various size die cuts randomly onto the card…
It’s a simple card…but I hope you liked it…

Post#179 Happy Anniversary Card

Today I’m sharing a simple and elegant anniversary card…..
My Stampin Up demonstrator sent me a few goodies last month….some beautiful cardstock,some printed DSP and some embellishments…and this plain green cardstock caught my eye….It’s such a pretty colour…I’m not familiar with SU paper colours but I think this one is called Pistachio Pudding(pls. correct me if I’m wrong)…
I have used gold cardstock as the base and the green as the mat…I wanted the green to show more so the top layer is quite smaller than the green one….
After rounding the corners of all the layers,I have stamped the top layer using Versamark Ink and a large Doily Stamp and then used a gold embossing powder to heat emboss it…I also stamped and gold embossed the ‘Happy Anniversary’ stamp on a banner punched out of the same green cardstock…
At the center of the doily stamp I have placed a large flower punched from gold cardstock with a rhinestone in the middle….
Hope you liked this card…
