Post#155 Thanks A Lot Card

This card would have been a simple black and white card but I added a bit of bright red just to make it eye catching….
The card base is plain black…..the top layer is white which has been stamped and heat embossed with black embossing powder…I then added a thin strip of black glitter cardstock and a strip of silver card at the base of the top layer…and stamped the sentiment at the top in red ink…
I rounded all the corners of the top layer and card base before attaching it…..and finally I added a few red rhinestones on the card….
Hope you liked this card…

Post#154 For You Card

I haven’t used kraft cardstock for a couple of weeks now and I really wanted to create this particular design using both plain and printed kraft paper…
The plain kraft cardstock has been used for the card base….then there is a layer of a swirly print kraft paper….and the top layer is made from Vellum paper…on all four sides of this vellum paper I have used two of the stitched border diee to give it a bit of texture…
In the middle of the card I have placed an embossed tag die cut from cold cardstock…the tag has a die cut word ‘For You’ on it as well as a two gold heat embossed pansy flowers and two leaves…
The gold and lavender sequins not only decorate the card but they also hide the glue dots that have been used to attach  the vellum to the layer below it….

Hope you liked my card….

Post#153 Anniversary Card

I find it quite difficult with some cards to click pictures that show all the elements of the card clearly….I have clicked countless pictures of this card and constantly adjusted my camera and light but one or the other element was always out of focus…and it’s only when you look closely,you will see a silver string wrapped around the heart….
The card base is plain white with a silver layer and a white top layer which has been embossed using Love Spun embossing folder….I have then placed a large glitter die cut heart on it which has a silver string wrapped around it….and then  I added small punched out elements on it as well as a ‘Happy Anniversary’ banner…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#152 Black & Colourful Birthday Card

Black cardstock has always been a bit tricky for me to make cards from….something or the other usually goes wrong…especially while stamping….So this time I managed to make a black card with no mistakes….mainly because I did not use stamps on it… 🙂 🙂
The card base and top layer has been rounded on two corners only….and on the top layer I have added strips of brightly coloured paper made by using Peerless watercolors…
The sentiment has been die cut from green glitter cardstock and adhered to the card…..I have added sequins in various sizes all over the card as well…
Even though it’s a black card,I feel it looks really bright and colourful…Hope you like it as much as I do…

Post#151 Confetti Card

It was high time that I tried a confetti card myself….there are a lot of versions on Pinterest and I’ve been delaying trying that because I first wanted to try making a very small envelope using a WRMK 1 2 3 punch board…

Since I wasn’t able to find dimensions for a tiny envelope online,I sat down with the punch board and came up with one that I could use on this card….I used a 3″ square double sided paper and the first punch and score line is at 1&3/4″….

Once the envelope was ready,I stuck it on the card and covered the card with colourful punched circles and rhinestones in a way that they seem to be bursting out of the envelope….

The sentiment is stamped on a small gold cardstock banner and placed on the envelope…

Hope you liked this confetti card….

Post#150 Celebrating my 150th post..!!

Yesssss…I’m celebrating my 150th post…and I’ve even made a card for myself…Ha ha!!!

The card has a white base and the a white  top layer…all four sides of both layers have been rounded using a corner punch….

On the top layer I have used distress inks and stars stencil to create a background….and stamped a ‘hip hip hooray’ stamp with Grape Soda Ranger Dye Ink….I used a tag die and stamp to create a tag to decorate the card..the top tag also has a die cut word ‘celebrate’….

Thank you so much for visiting my blog…Hope you liked today’s card….

Post#149 Embossed Birthday Card Wrapped With Gold String

After making quite a few brightly coloured cards,I wanted to make a card with a light colour theme….
First the top layer of this card has been sponged using various distress inks….then it was embossed using the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder….I wrapped a gold string around it and glued three thin strips of paper on one side…
For the sentiment stamps I used gold cardstock and stamped with black stazon ink and then punched them out using circle punches….to decorate the card I have used various tiny punches with the same gold cardstock as well as a few rhinestones…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#148 DIY Checkered Background Pattern Card

It’s so much fun to create backgrounds for cards yourself….and this one has got to be one of the easiest….and its great because you can choose the colours you’d like to match your embellishments…
I’m sure most of you had one look at the card and knew exactly how the background was made…and just to confirm, I’ll let you know that I made it using a ruler and my Spectrum Noir markers…
I have used glitter adhesive tape in 3 colours to decorate the top layer….I also created a tag by using two Stampin Up! punches and ribbon….the image on the tag is actually a cut out from a piece of vellum paper on which the image was stamped and coloured in….and the sentiment was stamped directly on the tag…

Once the top layer was ready,I adhered it onto a card base made from marble print green cardstock….

I hope you liked this card and the background I created…..

Post#147 Glitter & Butterfly Birthday Card

After using a lot of glitter cardstock for my projects,I had a fair bit of scraps left over…even though they were not very useful pieces,I held on to them until I came up with a way to use those…and then I saw  my sequin dies..and here’s the card….
The base and top layer of this card is plain white…..I die cut two different sizes of butterflies….the large one is die cut from pink glitter cardstock and the small one using silver cardstock which I have embossed as well….. I layered them before adhering to the card….
Then I stuck all the sequins dies cuts above the butterfly…..at the base of the card,I have used silver heat embossing powder with Versamark ink to stamp the ‘Happy Birthday’ message…
I thought to use a nice printed paper to create an envelope for this card using the WRMK 1 2 3 punch board….
Hope you liked this card…
