Watercoloured Flowers Birthday Card

I love adding gold elements to my cards…but I get quite frustrated trying to click good pictures of those cards…like this one today – it looks great in real life but I just couldn’t take a good enough picture to share with you..

I started by stamping and heat embossing the floral image from Pinkfresh Studio Just Because stamp set with Altenew antique gold embossing powder on a watercolor panel…I coloured in the flowers and leaves using the Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers..

I adhered 3 thin strips on one edge of the front panel – a green cardstock strip, an Altenew gold washi tape strip and a dark pink glitter cardstock strip…I stamped the sentiment from Altenew Birthday Builder stamp set and added a few green jewels to embellish my card…

Thanks heaps for checking out my card…hope you will have a happy and crafty day ahead..

It’s Plane To See: You’re Amazing!

There are not many planes flying around the world these days…but in our crafting world we can imagine anything from dragons to aliens – and even planes…

The card I’m sharing today is a simple one using the MFT Sky High stamp and die set…I first used the MFT mini cloud stencil and some tumbled glass and salty ocean Distress Inks to create the cloudy background on a white panel and then used the Lawn Fawn Just Stitching rectangle die to create a border around the front panel before adhering it to the card base..

On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped the plane and birds image and coloured them in using alcohol markers..I die cut these images and placed them onto my card front…I also adhered the stamped sentiment strip and well as a few jewels..

Thank you for stopping by today…hope you will have a wonderful day ahead..

Wishing all mums all over the world a very Happy Mother’s day…enjoy all the extra love your children shower on you today….hope the smiles and happy memories of this day last you a lifetime…

I’m sharing a bright floral card today that I have made using the Altenew Peony Scrolls stamp and dies…I stamped and heat embossed the flower and leaf images using a copper embossing powder and coloured them in using the Altenew watercolour brush markers…

I chose a yellow cardstock for the front panel and used some mustard seed Distress Oxide ink on the edges….I splattered some Hero Arts copper metallic paint on the panel and then adhered all the die cut flowers and leaves to it..

The sentiment is from a Paper Smooches called All Year Cheer and I have stamped and heat embossed it on a black label…and finally to embellish my card, I have added a few coloured jewels..

Flower Frame Birthday Card

I am sharing a simple birthday card today…I quite liked the geometric floral frame stamp by Avery Elle as it covers most of the card front and looks quite pretty with the little bunch of flowers on one edge of the frame..

I stamped and gold heat embossed the flower frame from the Avery Elle Modern Floral Frame set and coloured in the image using Zig watercolour markers and then die cut the image using the coordinating dies..I also gold heat embossed the sentiment on the frame and set it aside..

I chose a green cardstock for the front panel of my card and to add a bit of interest to the front panel, I applied some Distress inks on the edges… I have used mowed lawn and lucky clover here…I also splattered a bit of gold watercolour on the panel before adhering it to the card base…once the die cut frame was added to my card, I added a few jewels to embellish my card..

Thank you so much for visiting my blog…have a beautiful day…happy crafting..!!!

Two More Floral Mother’s Day Cards

I’m having a great time creating these floral cards with a bit of dimension…takes a bit longer but the end results are worth the effort..

For my first card, I have used Altenew Sweet Rose Bouquet stamp set with Altenew Crisp Inks to create the various layered flowers and leaves..I then die cut these images and set them aside…

I chose a sage green cardstock for the front panel and then for a bit of interest I used white pigment ink and Catherine Pooler Perfect Vine stencil to create a subtle background…I added the die cut flowers and leaves on this panel using some adhesive foam squares..

The sentiment on this card is from MFT About Mom stamp set which I have heat embossed on black cardstock using Altenew Rose Gold Embosssing Powder…and finally, to embellish my card I have used Essential Jewels from Pinkfresh Studio..

My second card has a background panel that I created just by sponging on some Distress Oxide Inks – tumbled glass and spun sugar…I splattered some Altenew metallic gold watercolor on this panel and adhered it to the card base once dry…

On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped the flower images from Altenew Pen Sketched Flowers and Focus On You stamp sets and heat embossed them using the Antique gold embossing powder…

I coloured in the images with Altenew Watercolor brush markers and then adhered them to the card front using adhesive foam squares….The sentiment for this card is from Clearly Besotted Stamps called Happy Everything and I have added some jewels to this card as well to embellish it..

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog today…have a happy and creative day ahead..!!

Sending You Love

I have finally been able to use the Altenew Floral Alphabet stamp and dies…I never got around to using these somehow…I think this set is a great size to use on tall/long cards too…

My card today is a simple one for which I have used Taylored Expressions Square Windows stencil with picked raspberry Disress Ink…I also splattered a bit of water and dabbed it with a paper towel….

I adhered the stamped and die cut alphabets to create the word ‘love’ and stamped the rest of the sentiment from Altenew Smiles and Hugs stamp and my card was ready..

Thank you for stopping by my blog today…hope you will have a blessed and happy day ahead..

Flowers And Leaves Mother’s Day Cards

I have always loved making backgrounds for my cards…and I think my newest favourite is making dimensional backgrounds…it takes a while to make these backgrounds, but the end result is quite worth it…

For my first card I have used MFT stitched flower die set and die cut the flowers and leaves from various coloured cardstocks…I then adhered them onto a peach front panel and cut of all the excess before adhering the panel to the card base…

I added a gold heat embossed sentiment from MFT About Mom stamp set on a black label and adhered it to the card front…to embellish my card i have used quite a few gold confetti sequins…

For my second card, I stamped and heat embossed various leaves from the MFT Geometric Greenery stamp set and then coloured them in with Altenew watercolour brush markers…once dry, I die cut the leaves with the coordinating dies and adhered them to the card front using foam tape…

The sentiment on this card is from a Heffy Doodle stamp set called Special Day Sentiment Duos which I have heat embossed on a black label…I added some white rhinestones to embellish my card…

Thanks heaps for stopping by to take a look at my cards today…have a happy and crafty day ahead…

Same Design For Two Cards

When I’m unsure, I usually try out a few combinations of images and backgrounds to see which one would look better…and sometimes I’m able to make more than one card this way…

Both my cards use the Altenew Dotted Starburst Debossing Cover Die for the front panels and Altenew Vase Fillers stamp set with Altenew Mod Vases stamp set for the images…

I have used crisp dye inks to stamp the vases and the flowers and the sentiments for both cards are from the Altenew Sentiments and Quotes stamp set..

Thank you for stopping by…happy papercrafting..!!

Bright Mother’s Day Card

This year I decided to make all Mother’s days cards with a floral theme…so I pulled out stamps sets from my stash that I hadn’t used in a while…I started with a simple card today which uses Fancy Flowers stamp and die set by My Favorite Things…

I started by splattering a small amount of black ink on the front panel before adhering it to the card base…on a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and leaves…I coloured them in using watercolours and once dry, I adhered them to the card front…

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from Avery Elle Loads Of Happy stamp set and added it to the card using some foam tape…and finally I added some black rhinestones to embellish my card…

Thank you so much for stopping by…hope you are well and taking good care…happy papercrafting..!!
