Post#144 DIY Background Birthday Card

This card was so much fun to create…..mainly the background….all you need is some water soluble colour and a drinking straw…and very soon you will have one of a kind background ready for your card…
I used Peerless watercolors and a Pentel Aquash water brush…after picking up the colour I wanted,I dropped a few drops of colour on the card..it’s easier with the water brush….and then the fun started…I took a drinking straw and blew air over these droplets….very soon the water started running/spreading in all directions…I did the same with 2-3 more colours…
Since the background is the hero of this card,I did not want to hide it under unnecessary embellishments,so I simply adhered a die cut word ‘happy’ from gold cardstock and stamped the word ‘birthday’ under it…
There is a layered gold and orange butterfly and a couple of tiny ones on the card…on one side is a strip of gold and red cardstock…
This is a fun technique to try with kids…you could even create your own wrapping paper this way…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#143 Birthday Hugs Shaker Card

After trying out this shaker card technique a couple of times with circle frame dies,I wanted to try creating a shaker card with a large heart frame….

The card base is plain orange with a silver first layer and an orange top layer…two sides of all these layers have been rounded with a punch…

To create the main heart frame,I used the two largest Kaisercraft nesting hearts dies….but since I needed to die cut more heart shapes in the same size,I used Washi tape to keep the dies together….this way all the frames were exactly the same shape…there are seven frames cut from white cardstock and stuck together to create a well to house the shaker elements..

Inside the frame,I have adhered the die cut word ‘hugs’ from glitter cardstock and stamped the words ‘sending birthday’ above it…and then all that was required was to add a bit of sequins for the shaker….

There is an acetate layer glued on top to close the shaker….and the topmost heart frame has been cut out of glitter cardstock….

I really like this bright  and glittery card…hope you do too…

Post#141 Colourful Birthday Tall Card

Observing little kids open their birthday cards,I have realised that they are mostly focused on what is on the card than anything else…most can’t read yet so words of any sort don’t mean much…so I feel it’s best to make really bright cards for them….
I started this card with a 3″x 7″ white base…..the top layer is also white…I cut three layering squares in two different colours and stuck them on the top layer…I also attached two strips in blue and glitter vertically on it….
Using the cuttlebug party die set,I die cut a party hat,candles and a present from bright colours and stuck them on the squares…I also added a few rhinestones in various colours on the die cuts…
Hope you likes this card…

Post#140 Thank You For Your Kindness

At the start of this year,I’d like to thank everyone who has encouraged me a lot with their kind words and appreciation….means a lot to me….

The card I’m sharing today is made from Kraft cardstock….the top layer has been stamped with tangerine ink and a leaf stamp repeatedly to create the background….Then I randomly coloured a piece of paper with peerless watercolors and die cut them with a leaf die….

I have arranged a gold string on the top layer and attached it as well as the two leaves…the sentiment has been stamped on a gold cardstock label… added a few sequins as well…

Hope you liked this card…

Thank you for stopping by to take a look…

Post#139 Happy New Year 2016

2015 seemed to have flown by….and a brand new year has begun….Happy New Year to you and yours and wishing you the very best in 2016….
My new year card has a gold cardstock base…and the top layer is in aqua green cardstock on which I stamped various size circle stamps with Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder…I then cut a 2″ strip of vellum paper and used a border punch on both sides before attaching it to the top layer…
On one side of the top layer I attached one strip of gold glitter adhesive tape and another in purple…next to it I threaded a few sequins on a gold string and wrapped it around the top layer a few times….
For the sentiment I die cut the Happy New Year word twice from purple card stock and once from gold foil paper and glued them together before attaching to the card…
Hope you liked this card…Have a great 2016….

Post#138 HAPPY CHRISTMAS CARD

It’s Christmas day today so here’s wishing you a very Merry Christmas and hoping that you will feel this happiness all year round…!!!
Today I’m sharing a card with light blue base and a vellum top layer which has been heat embossed with silver snowflakes….to attach the vellum firmly to the card,I used a strip of silver glitter cardstock on which I used a zig zag border punch….
The sentiment is a die cut word happy from silver cardstock…and the word Christmas is stamped and heat embossed with silver embossing powder on a smalls trip of blue cardstock…
I also glued a few dark blue rhinestones in the center of all the snowflakes…
Hope you liked this card…Have a lovely day today…
