Post#101 – Love You Polaroid Card

I wanted to make a card with a lot of colours in it but at the same time I wanted those colours to not take too much space on the card so it doesn’t look too full…
So I started with a plain white cardstock for the card base….then I die cut two small polaroid frames from aqua and pink cardstock…I attached a printed yellow and white grid print paper for the aqua frame and added a red punched heart and you word on it….For the pink frame I simply used a white watercolour paper and coloured it in with peerless watercolors…
I attached both the polaroid frames to the card and added a few sequins here and there as well…
Hope you like this card….

Post#100 – Gift Pouch

Today I’m sharing a gift pouch made from Kraft Cardstock…making the pouch was not a big task…so to give it a bit of a nice look I tried the partial die cut technique on the pouch flap…
Once I cut out two pieces of Kraft paper for the pouch and the top decorative layer , I stamped the top layer with blue ink using a border stamp….I then used two consecutive sizes of Ornate Frame nesting dies to partially die cut the shape for the flap of the pouch….I then sponged both these pieces with the same blue ink…
Once the pouch was ready,I made a band for closing it and attached a smaller die cut from the same die set and stamped on it…
Hope you liked this pouch…
And thankyou so much for visiting my blog…It’s my 100th post today… 🙂

Post#99 – So Grateful Card

Today I’m sharing a card with no layers at all….sometimes adding layers complicates a simple beautiful design and doesn’t necessarily add much…
For this card I started by stamping a large swirly image using a brown pigment ink and then added clear embossing powder to heat emboss it….this would now resist the distress inks I used for the background…I started with a lighter shade of yellow and added the darker shade on the edges of the card…
I stamped the sentiment near the base of the card and added a few tiny rhinestones as well…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#98 – Tiny Gift Box

While searching for projects and things to make with the Tag Topper Punch, an image of these really cute boxes came up but the link took me to the tutorial in a language I couldn’t understand much…..Thanks Google Translate, I was able to make these tiny goody gift boxes easily….
I used a light blue printed paper to make these boxes…and then decorated them with a a few punched out pieces and Kaisercraft Collectables die cuts…I added a banner with a sentiment as well..
To close the boxes at the top I simply used a brown string and tied a bow…
Hope you liked these…

Post#97 – Flower And Glitter Card

I haven’t had much luck with any of the techniques for using a bit of glitter in projects….the glitter usually shakes off…..or it only partially sticks….So after trying out lots of different ways to make glitter stick and not shake off the card..I have finally came up with one technique that works to create this splatter background…
I just mixed a tiny bit of Tombow multi liquid glue with a few drops of water and a bit of glitter…mixed it well with a brush and splattered it on the front of the card…

Once the gold glitter splatter on the white card dried up,I cut out a stamped image of a flower and stem from the Tim Holtz Flower Garden stamp set and stuck it to the card….Finally I added a gold foil paper banner with a sentiment stamp on it…
The glitter splatter looks great doesn’t it??And it doesn’t come off…yay….
Hope you liked it…

Post#96 – Small Tent Box

This is one of the cutest boxes that I’ve made….and yes I made this by following a tutorial by Sam Donald…it’s great for holding a few chocolates or treats or a small item…
It’s a triangle shaped box that opens at the top and the outside case/cover shaped like a tent closes the box nicely…and that means there are no ribbons or other things required to close the box…
I chose a plain grey cardstock for the box and a green and grey printed  paper for the cover…to decorate the box I made a narrow silver banner and added a stamped and punched flower and added the sentiment on a circle at the top…
Hope you liked how my box turned out…

Post#95 – With All My Heart Card

This is a quick card I made using the Heidi Swapp stamp and stencil set called All My Heart….
On the top white cardstock layer I used the heart stencil to print four times with different colours of distress inks…I chose light colours…Then I stamped the sentiment with red dye ink and attached the layer to the red card base…
I added a few shiny heart sequins on the card as well but thanks to my photography skills they look black in this picture… 🙂
I do hope you liked this card…..

Post#94 With Love Balloon Tag

Today I’m sharing a simple tag….I chose a blue cardstock for the  base and punched at the top using a tag topper punch and rounded the corners of the base…
And in an attempt to try Twinkling H2O watercolors again, I coloured a bit of white cardstock using these watercolours and die cut a balloon and ‘with love’ word…the die cuts shimmer beautifully…I embossed the balloon die cut and added a couple of punched hearts in red and gold…and to finish the tag I added bright red and yellow ribbons…
I hope you liked it…

Post#93 Sydney Card using Stampers Anonymous Cityscapes Set

This is the stamp I was looking for when I found the Cityscape stamp set…the other four stamps were a bonus…
The frame was made using foil cardstock and nesting dies….once the frame was ready I used two different stamps to create the message ‘hello from Australia’ on the vellum section….
Then I simply adhered the frame to the silver glitter card base…
I had a great time making this card…hope you like it as much as I do…
