Post#119 – Favorite Wish Card

A lot of stamp sets have these teeny tiny stamps that are very rarely used…but not anymore…Jennifer McGuire has shared a wonderful tutorial to create these beautiful backgrounds for your cards using those small stamps…Once I saw the tutorial,I quickly pulled out a few small stamps and started stamping….
My card has stars stamps in various sizes that I have stamped with blue dye ink…and used various shades…darker at the top and lighter one near the bottom…and I think that the sentiment stamp goes very well with the star stamps….I also added a few tiny rhinestones….
I’m sure I’ll be trying this technique again soon…
Hope you like this card as much as I do…

Post#118 – Succulents Note Card

I wanted to try out this stamp set I had bought from ALDI…yes that’s right…I had heard that every once in a while they bring out a few craft supplies…I usually miss out but not this time…I was able to buy four different stamp sets that day….along with some bright printed papers and a nice trimmer as well…
Today I’m sharing a simple note card….On a white top layer I first sponged in a bit of mowed lawn and tattered rose distress inks in the center…and then stamped the succulents stamps with black ink…this way I didn’t have to colour in the stamps…I did however add a few hints of red on some of the leaves…
I sponged the edges with tattered rose ink and then stamped the sentiment under the stamped image….once the top layer was ready I attached it to the card base…added a few sequins as well…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#117 – Anniversary Card Gold & Silver

Today I’m sharing an Anniversary card in gold and silver….I wanted to try gold and silver together and see how it looks…It could’ve been finished a bit better but I still think it looks quite good…
So I started by stamping circles of various sizes with gold and silver pigment ink on vellum paper…once that dried I placed it on a silver top layer and it is held in place by silver and gold strings that I wound around both the layers…then I adhered it to the silver card base….
For the sentiment I die cut two circles using the stitched circle dies in gold and silver and stamped on the silver circle….I attached these near the base of the card….
Hope you like it…

Post#116 Star Box

Now this is a box that I wanted to make because of the lovely star shape at the top of the box…I had the link for the tutorial bookmarked for more than a year now but never got around to making it coz I thought it was a kind of a tricky box…I couldn’t have been more wrong….and once you see the tutorial you will think the same…
I chose a dark eggplant coloured paper with a marbled effect print to create the box…..once the box was ready,I carefully tied the ribbon around it…this box doesn’t close fully so you have to be careful about what you put inside of it…
On the front of the box I adhered the die cut word ‘For You’ using silver paper and a star as well…
Hope you liked this box and will try it out…

Post#115 Love Heart Theme – Love Spun Card

Today I’m sharing the final post for my Love Heart Theme….and I have tried something different as well….
I chose a white top layer and stamped it with the Amy Tangerine embossing folder called Love Spun….once the ink was dry I carefully aligned the paper on the embossing folder….but instead of embossing over the stamped image I debossed it…doing this gives it a kind of letterpress effect…
To keep things simple I added a die cut word ‘hi’ ¬†and a red heart on a kraft paper strip and sponged the edges with tea dye distress ink….Then I simply attached the top layer to a Kraft cardstock base and the card was ready…
I hope you liked this card and all the other cards and tags that I shared for my Love Heart Theme…
Thanks for stopping by…

Post#114 Love Heart Theme – Love You Card

I have made a red and gold card before…..but this time I used red as the card base and gold for the top layer…
The gold top layer was embossed using the Lattice embossing folder by Kaisercraft….at the bottom of the card I attached die cut heart border….above it I added two die cut words Love and You…these words dies stand out as I have added a couple more layers under them….
Since the gold top layer is quite shimmery, I did not feel the need to add any embellishments to the card so I just added a small punched red heart in the middle of the two words…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#111 Love Heart Theme – With Love Tag

I created this tag base using the same technique as the one in Post 109…the embossing folder used in this one is called Diamonds by Kaisercraft….after embossing I created the watercolour effect using distress inks..
I wanted this tag to have quite a bit of delicate layers so I used a large punched flower and a die cut stitched border circle and attached them to the tag…then I added a bit of gold string…and finally two banners layers…the top layer banner has the die cut word ‘with love’ on it as well as a few heart sequins….
Hope you liked this tag…
