Post#20 Note Card Set

There were two parts of this project…both of which I quite enjoyed making…..This is a 3×3″ note card set with envelopes which sits nicely in a small box…great for a gift…
The cards have all have a printed top layer and are decorated with various die cuts and punch outs..a few golden sequins as well..
I made the simple envelopes using the envelope punch board…
The card box was a bit of a challenge as I had to come up with all the specifications myself…..and after a few tries I did get it right and the cards and envelopes fit in nicely…
Hope you liked them.

Post#19 Tag Card – Yellow Hello

Sometimes,a simple hello from someone you haven’t heard from in a while makes you feel happy….and special…and thought about…
This card is made on a Kraft card base….and a yellow and white printed paper as top layer….I die cut two fishtail shaped tags in plain yellow and white….and on the top tag I attached a colourful Hello die cut word….to attach the tags to each other I used a bit of thick yellow bakers twine…and a few golden sequins here and there to finish the card…
Hope you liked it.

Post#18 Mobile Phone Birthday Card

It’s so hard to think of cards for tweens and teens…they are kids but do not like being treated as kids… my elder daughter will be a teen next year….I better catch up with the trends and try out a few more cards like this….
I found this really cool mobile phone stamp set online and had to buy it…It’s perfect for the age group I’m talking about…
This time I used a 5 & 1/2″ square card base in red…I cut the numbers printed paper in an angle just to make it look a bit ‘cool’….then I used a border die to give it the cross stitch effect…I stamped and cut out the mobile phone and added the stamped text speech bubbles with a bit of foam squares  for dimension…..
I have a few more ideas for this stamp set…I hope I’ll be able to try those soon…
Hope you liked this ‘cool’ card…

Post#17 Bright Red Tag

The other day I saw a gift wrapped with newspaper as wrapping paper…..It looked really nice with bit of string wrapped around it….and the crafter in me instantly thought that a bright tag on that gift would’ve looked really eye catching…
So with that thought,I started on this tag…didn’t take too long for it to come together…
A die cut tag coloured with a bit of watercolour paints(my favourite these days)…a sentiment stamp at the top…some ribbon and rhinestones to finish the tag…
Hope you liked it.

Post#16 Butterfly Thanks Card

Today I’m sharing with you a card in one of my favourite colour combinations….Blue,White and Silver…
It’s a simple card on which I used a chevron stencil and blue ink to make a printed background….I also used a paper mask to make the print go at an angle rather than straight…then I stamped a sentiment above it….below the print I put on a silver glitter tape and a die cut butterfly on top…a bit of sequins and rhinestones added some sparkle to it…
I like this card and I hope you do as well.

Post#15 Polaroid Frame Card

I have a couple of these Polaroid dies and before now I’ve have not been able to come up with a good design for them….
On a textured white card base I added a camera print paper…this part was easy…then I die cut the Polaroid die 3 times and stuck them together to give a bit of dimension…at the back of the frame I added a piece of vellum paper which I stamped,heat embossed and coloured in…lastly,I added a sentiment at the top which bring all the layers together…
Thank you for visiting my blog.
Hope you liked this card.

Post#14 Wine Bottle Gift Tag

Today I’m sharing something different…It’s a gift tag for a wine bottle…It easily slips over the neck of the bottle…and that’s all you need to dress up a simple wine bottle…
I love the greenish colour of this bottle…and went with the theme while choosing paper colour…added a paper bow and a button with string….and below it I added a stamped and heat embossed vellum paper tag…
Now I’m already thinking of more ideas for these kind of tags ….definitely have to try  a few more of them…
Hope you liked this tag.

Post#12 Flower Stamped Tag

So now you know I really like flower stamps….Here’s a simple tag using one of those….
Sometimes less is more…..and for this tag I did just that….kept things simple….I felt that there was no need to colour in the stamped image and no need for any bling…so I stamped the same flower three times and left the rest of the space clean and untouched…
A little die cut word was added and the word ‘with’ stamped in red above it…added a ribbon on top and that’s it…all done…
I hope you like it.
