Two Birthday Cards

After looking at and admiring a lot of tall/narrow cards shared by so many card makers recently, I decided to give it a go as well…I tried out a vertical layout as well as a horizontal one…the card size is 3 5/8″ x 8 5/8″ for both cards…and I haven’t tried it yet but this should fit a business envelope(a DL size for Australia)

My first card is a fairy birthday card made using Stamping Bella cling stamp set called Little Bits Fairy and Kelly Alpha lower case die set from Pinkfresh Studio….I have used Distress inks with MFT mini cloud stencil to create the background panel…and to complete the sentiment, I added two white heat embossed labels above the die cut word…

I have also added tiny pink stars all over the card to embellish it..

For my second card, I first stamped and heat embossed a lot of leaf images from Altenew Freeform Greenery stamp set …I coloured them in using alcohol markers and the die cut them with the coordinating dies…I added these leaves to the bottom of the front panel..

Using some red cardstock, I die cut the word ‘happy’ using the Altenew Caps Bold Alpha dies….I added some glitter ad then some nuvo glaze on these die cuts…I stamped and heat embossed the word ‘birthday’ from Mega Greetings 2 stamp set and adhered it to complete the sentiment…

I wasn’t able to take a good picture of this card as the Nuvo glaze was extremely reflective…

I did enjoy making these cards….I think this is a great size to use for a bit of variation every now and then…

Thanks so much for stopping by today…have a wonderful, happy and craft day today..

Is It Time For Cake?

It was great fun and super easy to make this birthday card using Mama Elephant stamp and dies….the stamp sets I have used are – stackable friends and big news and the die used for the background panel is the circular grid die..

I first created the front panel with Distress Inks and then die cut it before adding a dark mustard cardstock behind the panel…

On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped and clear heat embossed the images and then coloured them in before die cutting them…I added these to the card front and stamped the sentiments as well

Thank you for checking out my blog today…hope you are able to enjoy crafting these days…take care!!

Fabulous – Yes You Are!

Today I’m sharing a card made with the Altenew Dotted Starburst Debossing Cover Die which I think is the hero of my card….

I used green cardstock for the front panel and debossed it…I then added a stamped and die cut diamond shape from the Altenew Geo Frames set…I splattered a bit of metallic gold watercolour on it before adhering it to the card front…

I then stamped and heat embossed three daisy flowers and some leaves from the Altenew New Beginnings stamp set…I coloured them in using the Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers and then added them to the diamond frame..

I stamped and gold heat embossed the sentiment from Altenew Engraved Flowers stamp set on a black label and added a few gold sequins to embellish my card..

Thank you for stopping by my blog and checking out my card…stay safe and stay healthy….praying for everyone…

Happy Hoppy Easter Cards

I don’t think I have ever made so many Easter cards before…but one look at this very cute Avery Elle set with a bunny hugging an Easter egg was irresistible…so I made two more cards..!!

The backgrounds for both cards have been made using the MFT clouds mini stencil and Distress Inks…

For this first card I added two grassy die cut panels at the bottom and placed the die cut image there and stamped the sentiment directly on the front panel before adhering it to the card base..

For my second card, I die cut a Polaroid frame and used some vellum as a backing so the cloudy background would show through..I stamped the sentiment on the frame and adhered it to the card front…I then adhered the die cut image on the frame and added a few jewels to embellish my card..

I have applied nuvo gloss on the images to make then shiny…but that has caused the images to catch the reflection of the light I used while photographing my cards..

Thanks for stopping by…hope you’ll have a wonderful day ahead..

Easter Cuties

These Easter Party cuties by Lawn Fawn are simply adorable so it took no time at all to create these Easter cards…

For my first card I adhered three die cut frames from Mini Picture Frames by Lawn Fawn using white cardstock and adhered them to the front panel…I then placed the coloured in cuties on the frame and added the sentiment banner…the sentiment if from a Heffy Doodle stamp set called Special Day Sentiment..

For my second card, I used a rectangle stencil to create a background for the little cuties and then added a die cut scalloped border on the front panel….I stamped the sentiment and adhered the images to the card front..

Thank you for stopping by my blog today…I hope you are healthy and well and taking good care of yourselves…stay blessed..

Such Wonderful News – Clearly Besotted

I’m sharing a clean and simple card today…quite proud of myself actually as I was ‘successful’ in keeping the card clean and the design simple…which is quite an achievement as I was using watercolours as well!!

I stamped the flower cluster image from Clearly Besotted Stamps set called Just for you and heat embossed it using the Altenew rose gold embossing powder…I then used the Altenew watercolor markers to colour in the flower and leaves..

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on a black label and adhered it to the card front and added a few pink sequins to embellish my card..

I hope you liked my card…thank you for stopping by my blog today…have a wonderful day !!

Tulip Field Cards

The two cards I’m sharing today use the Hero Arts Tulip Field Heroscape Stamp and Die set…hmmm so what do I like about this set..??Everything I guess…I was so excited as the layers were super easy to position and the results were amazing..!!

I started by creating the backgrounds on the front panels of my cards…for the first one I used a circle stencil to create a setting sun kind of background and for the second card I used the sun stencil to print the sun at the top right corner of the panel…

On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped the layering poppy fields and other element stamps using Altenew crisp dye inks…I die cut them using the coordinating dies and adhered them to my card front…And finally, I stamped the sentiment on both cards using black ink..

Thank you for your visit to my blog today…Hope you will have a blessed and happy day!

Waffle Flower Baby Cards

Oh! I could’ve kept on making cards once I started with the Waffle Flower Little One Baby stamp set…it’s one of the most adorable baby stamp set I have ever used…and I am sure this will be my ‘go to’ stamp set for baby cards from now on…

I started by stamping and heat embossing all the images I needed for my cards…then coloured them in using alcohol markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies…

For the baby boy card, I sponged in a bit of mustard seed Distress Ink at the bottom of the front panel…I then adhered the coloured in and die cut images on it and stamped the sentiment at the top of the panel…the sentiment on this card is from an old Winnie And Walter stamp set called The Big, The Bold And Baby…

For the baby girl card, I lightly sponged in some salty ocean Distress Ink in the middle of the front panel and then placed all the stamped, coloured in and die cut images on it….

Thank you for stopping by my blog today…hope you will have a blessed and happy day ahead..!!
