Post#92 Clear Shaker Invitation using Stampers Anonymous Cityscapes Set(New York)

So this is the fourth project using the Cityscapes stamp set and today’s stamp is of New York cityscape and I’ve managed to use the whole stamp for this one rather than a section of it…
I’ve had this idea of making a clear shaker party invitation for a while now…and once I saw the New York cityscape stamp, I knew exactly what I was going to make with it…
I started by stamping the cityscape image on the back of an acrylic pocket using stazon black ink…..adding sequins to the whole pocket would have made the stamp not stand out so I decided to make two sections….the top part is the shaker section filled with sequin stars….there is also a tiny tab section a the top where the tag can be attached…
I also stamped the word ‘party’ on the top section with white stazon ink…and the shaker section was ready…then I die cut a tag and created a background using the party word stamp repeatedly….then I stamped and heat embossed ‘you’re invited’ on the tag….I used ribbons and gold string to attach the tag to the clear shaker …
I had a lot of fun creating something different today…Hope you liked it..

Post#91 Paris card using Stampers Anonymous Cityscapes Set

I am very excited to share my third project using the Cityscapes stamp set…The cityscape stamp I used for this card was of Paris….
For this card I chose a greyish silver glitter cardstock for the card base…I stamped the Paris cityscape on vellum paper and flipped it over to colour in the sky and the buildings with distress inks…then I attached this vellum section to a polaroid die cut…I also attached a glitter banner with a vellum banner on the polaroid frame to add the sentiment…
This card didn’t need much else so I simply attached the polaroid frame to the cards base and added a few silver star sequins to it…
Hope you liked this card as much as I do…Thanks for stopping by to take a look…

Post#90 London Tags using Stampers Anonymous Cityscapes Set

Today I am sharing two tags I made using the cityscapes stamp set….For this project I used the London cityscape stamp…
After die cutting the tags I coloured in the base section with Peerless watercolors…once that was dry I stamped a section of the stamp on both tags…
For one tag I die cut chevron pieces in blue,red and white inspired by the colours of the Union Jack…and I think the word and meaning stamp of “journey’ goes well with it…the red and blue ribbons add the finishing touch to the tag…
For the second tag I simply stamped the word ‘Many Thanks’ and threaded a ribbon through…I also tied a bakers twine on the ribbon…I decided not to add any embellishments on this tag…
Hope you liked these…

Post#89 Rome Bookmark using Stampers Anonymous Cityscapes Set

Starting today I will be sharing 5 projects which I have made using a Cityscapes stamp set by Stampers Anonymous….
I had been looking for a stamp of something distinctively Australian…I was thinking of something along the lines of landmarks when I saw this beautiful stamp set with cityscapes of five different cities…And once I bought it I decided to create five projects using this set…
Today’s project is a simple bookmark…it is 2.5″ wide and 11.5″ long folded at 5″ and the corners have been rounded using a punch…I then created a background using distress inks and stamped the Colosseum section of the Rome stamp on it…And then I stamped the ‘Be Brave Be Bold’ stamp with red dye ink above it…
Hope you liked it…make sure you take a look at the other four projects I’ll be posting over the next few days…

Post#88 You’re My Type Of Friend Card

The card I’m sharing today does not have bright colours or too many colours…The card base is plain grey and the top layer is white…
On the top layer I sponged in a bit of distress ink in the center and then stamped the sentiment and typewriter image…then I masked the center image and used a stencil and slate colour ink to create the background of the card….
The card was ready as soon as I attached the top layer to the base of the card…
Hope you liked it..

Post#87 Heart Balloons Card

In this card I have used the die cut as well as the negative space left by die cutting to create an interesting look….
Once I die cut the balloon die from the white top layer,I attached a printed paper under it…I then added the actual die cut on the top layer as well(I decided to use a pink die cut for this card instead of the white)…
To add the strings for the balloons I simply drew with a gold pen…and then attached the sentiment stamped with red ink on a green banner…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#86 Tall Slim Giftbag

Going through a few of my old bookmarks,I found a link to this project tutorial by Sam Donald…..I had wanted to try it out as soon as I saw it but never got around to it till now….I love how beautiful these gift bags look and the best part is that we can make two bags from one sheet of 12” X 12″ cardstock…
The tutorial video is excellent as always and here’s the link for it – Typeset Birthday Bag Tutorial by Sam Donald
I loved making and decorating these bags….I tried one with plain cardstock and one with printed paper….both turned out great…
Hope you liked them too..

Post#85 Thanks Tag Card

I like using tags to create simple cards…and for this card I wanted to use the colour combination of blue,aqua and pink…
I started with a 5″ x 7″ aqua card base…the top layer is a marble effect blue paper…I added four strips in various widths on it and adhered the top layer to the card…
Then I die cut a large tag and added the die cut word thanks to it along with a few tiny punched out flowers and a ribbon as well…I attached the tag onto the card front and added a few more punched flowers to the card…
Hope you liked it…

Post#84 Button Punch Card

I bought the button punch a very long time ago….but I have not used it much at all…somehow I could not come up with ideas…even though this one punch can punch out 5 different types of button shapes…
So I sat down and took just one of the shapes to design this card…On a white base card I used a white top layer as well…I punched four circles on it and attached it to the base card…on each one of these circle spaces I attached four different coloured buttons punches…and to give it a bit more of a button effect, I used a thin gold string to sew through…
I stamped the sentiment at the top of the card…then cut out a stamped image of a little girl and adhered it to the front of the card using adhesive foam squares…
Hopefully I will be able to think of more ideas to create something with my button punch…
Thanks for taking a look at my post today…Hope you liked this card…
