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!

Thank You Card For Altenew March Inspiration Challenge

This months inspiration challenge at the Altenew Blog was actually a big challenge for me….I tend to automatically reach for bright colours and combos so had to think hard to come up with a card design using the pastel shades from the inspiration picture..

I first created the background panel using the Altenew cube builder stencil and Wisteria and Iceberg crisp dye inks…on a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped the leaves and flower clusters using Firefly crisp ink…the stamps are from Focus On You and A Study In Watercolor stamp sets…

I stamped the sentiment on a couple of white strips ad adhered them to my card..I also added a few clear sequins to embellish my card..

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today…Have a happy and wonderful day ahead..!!

Leafy Birthday Cards

I am sharing two cards that I have made with the Altenew Leaf Canopy stamp and die set….In my first card I have tried out a light wash of the Altenew watercolours for the background and for my second card, I have used the fadeout inkpad by ink on 3 to try out a no line colouring effect…need to practice a bit more with this inkpad but I think it’s a good start…

Hello friends…hope you all have been well and have had  a good start to 2019…I have been trying my best to update my blog but unable to do so for a while now due to time constraints…to make things easy on myself, from now on I plan to only share the pictures of my cards and details about the products I have used in each one…this is the only way I can keep sharing my cards at the moment…

The first card I’m sharing uses  the following Altenew products – Geo Frames stamp and dies, Floral elements stamps and dies, Crisp dye inks, Rose gold embossing powder,  and black cardstock

Here is another picture of the same card..

My second card uses the following Altenew products – Leaf Canopy stamp and dies, Crisp dye inks – sea breeze & parrot, Watercolours for the background panel – ocean waves and persian blue,and the Birthday Builder stamp set.The background is a watercolour cardstock cut to size for the front panel.

I have also used some adhesive foam under one of the leaf die cut for a bit of dimension and added some rhinestones to embellish my card..
Thank you for stopping by my blog today…hope you will have a happy and crafty day ahead..

Diwali Cards Using Altenew Candle Light Stamp Set

Today I’m sharing 3 Diwali cards….Diwali is on the 7th of November this year and if you didn’t know already, it is the biggest Hindu festival – also known as the festival of lights…and I was so happy when Altenew came up with the most versatile stamp set called Candle Light which has images of some layering candles, tealights and an earthen lamp as well as some really wonderful sentiments..I had been waiting for a set like this for quite sometime now..

For all my cards, I stamped the layering stamp for the lamp and the flame on a piece of white cardstock using Altenew crisp inks…for the lamp I have used mocha, sand dunes, rocky shore, and limestone shade and for the flames I have used citrus burst, fresh lemon and autumn blaze….I have die cut these with the coordinating dies and in a couple of the die cuts had to trim off a small section for the flame…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

My first card was inspired by Jennfer Rzasa and I kept is fairly simple as I wanted to see if these lamps would look okay with the flame on one side…and I think it does…well, I started by creating the front panel of my card by first stamping the small mandala pattern using wild honey oxide ink and heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder…I then applied various Distress Inks on this panel – squeezed lemonade, mustard seed and dried marigold…I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and then adhered this panel to the card base…I added the die cut lamp and embellished my card with some plain gold confetti sequins..

For my second card, I have used a square stencil to create the focal point in the background..I used the following Distress inks for that – blueprint sketch, salty ocean and tumbled glass…I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment before adhering the front panel to the card base…I used adhesive foam squared to attach the lamp and then added a few tiny gold star sequins as embellishments..

Now my third card wasn’t planned but it is my favourite…and it looks much better than it does in the pictures…I dry embossed a frosted gold cardstock piece using a paisley embossing folder and the adhered it to a plain white card base…then I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment on an orange panel and adhered it to the card front and then adhered the lamp die cut…and finally to decorate this card I have used a few orange rhinestones.. 
Here are a few more pictures of my cards…

From All Of Us

I really loved the layering stamp sets by Clearly Besotted I have used so far, so I got another one…this one is called Pure Poppies…very easy to layer and such great results as well…I also used a rectangle die to add a bit of texture and pattern to the background…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I started by die cutting the black cardstock for the background panel and adhered it to the card base….I then added a smaller stitched rectangle to the card front which has been die cut from gold glitter cardstock …

On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped the poppy and leaf images and die cut them using the coordinating dies…I have used the following shades of Altenew crisp inks for stamping the flowers- heartbeat, rouge &coral bliss and for the leaves I have used just green and parrot….

I adhered these pieces to the card and then white heat embossed the sentiment on a small black die cut label and used some adhesive foam to add a bit of dimension…and finally I added a few white Nuvo drops to embellish my card..

Finally I got a bit of time to update my blog…thank you all for your patience….especially my crafty friends who got concerned for me…let me assure you that all is well and I just got too busy for a bit….even though I am still making cards, I just couldn’t find the time to update my blog for the past few weeks…so today I’m sharing a birthday card with bright flowers and a soft background that I have made using the Distress blending brushes….
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I started by applying wilted violet and squeezed lemonade Distress Inks with the blending brushes on a piece of white smooth cardstock….I splattered some water for effect and once dry, I adhered it to a plain white card base…
Next, I stamped the beautiful ornamental flowers and leaves layering stamps on a separate piece of white cardstock using Altenew crisp inks…for the leaves I used sweet leaf, just green, hunter green and evergreen and for the flowers I used sunkissed, orange cream, firebrick, autumn blaze,citrus burst,maple yellow and honey drizzle shades of inks…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I die cut the flowers and the leaves using coordinating dies and once I was happy with the arrangement,I adhered them to the card front..I then stamped the sentiment on a white strip using deep iris dye ink and added a layer of purple glitter strip behind it before adhering it to my card as well… and finally to embellish my card I have added a few jewels..

Let’s Celebrate You

I am sharing a tall card today…it is 3 1/4 ” x 6 1/2″ and is just perfect for the main feature which is a stem of beautiful Orchid flowers…and to make the flowers ‘pop’ on my card, I have added a layer of thick vellum paper on which I have blended some Distress Ink for a soft look background…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Once my card base was ready, I cut a piece of thick vellum paper slightly smaller than the card front and then applied some peacock feather Distress Ink on it…I also sprinkled some water for effect…
Next, I used Altenew crisp dye inks to stamp the Clearly Besotted orchid oasis layering stamp on a piece of white cardstock…for the flowers I have used sand dunes  and velvet shades of ink, bamboo and olive for the leaves  and mocha shade of ink for the branch…I die cut these images using the coordinating dies and then adhered them to the vellum panel…
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a white label, I stamped the sentiment and adhered it to the vellum panel as well….I hid the adhesive behind the die cut images and the sentiment label at back of the panel to adhere it to the card front…I also added a few sparkling clear sequins to embellish my card…

Birthday Magnolias

I have become such a big fan of the Distress Blending Brushes now…no matter how much I tried with my ink blending, I would always put on too much ink on paper and never get the soft and light results that I really wanted at times…today’s card has layered stamped from Clearly Besotted stamps with a light Distress Ink background using the blending brush..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
On a piece of white cardstock,I stamped the Magnolia flowers and leaves using Altenew Inks….I have used frosty pink, pinkalicious, pink diamond and rubellite the flowers and for the leaves and stem I used mocha, parrot and forest glades…I then die cut these flower and leaves using the coordinating dies and set them aside…

I then cut watercolour cardstock to size for the front panel and applied some tumbles glass Distress Ink using the distress blending brush…I also splattered some water for effect as well as some black paint…once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment and adhered this panel to the card base….

I adhered the flowers to my card front and add some clear Nuvo drops to embellish it..

Many Thanks

I had started today’s card with an intention to create a bit of depth on my stamped panel simply by adding 2nd generation stamping as I have seen Jennifer McGuire do in many of her cards and tutorials…but as you can see, it didn’t work out for me…but I still did manage to create a lovely card in the end…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I stamped the flowers and leaves on a plain white front panel using various pink, purple and green shades of Altenew crisp dye inks…for those who don’t know what 2nd generation stamping is – simply put, it is when you stamp again immediately after you have stamped…since you don’t reink the stamp, you get a lighter version of the image…this way you are able to add depth and/or dimension to your images without using too many shades of inks…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I stamped the large sentiment using black ink and then adhered this panel to a plain white card base….
then on a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped a few extra leaves and flowers using the same shade of inks and cut them out and placed them just below the sentiment…I  did use some adhesive foam underneath them to add the much needed dimension…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

To embellish my card I have added a lot of pink and purple shiny jewels in various sizes…
I’m glad you stopped by to take a look at my card….Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

XOXO – Altenew Folksy Florals

Today I’m sharing a card with beautiful flowers in soft colours….or at least softer colours than the bright ones I usually go for..I was very conscious of my colour choices for this one and kept the stencilled background quite light as well….

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I created the background using Altenew grid stencil and cotton candy dye ink on a white front panel which I adhered to a plain white card base…I tried to only sponge the ink on the sides of the panel and leave the centre area as clean as possible since I wanted to add a frame to the card front…
I die cut the frame from gold glitter cardstock using two rounded rectangle dies…I also die cut the same frame three more times from white cardstock and layered them under the gold frame for a bit of dimension…I also die cut the sentiment from the same glitter gold cardstock using inline alpha dies and adhered them inside the gold frame…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped all the flower and leaf images using various shades of Altenew crisp dye inks and then added them to the gold frame…finally I added some pink jewels to embellish my card…

Updated Post – Altenew June Inspiration Challenge

Hello…I’m sharing a new picture of my card that I had shared earlier….I wasn’t able to get a better picture that day, so I tried again….and the colours in today’s picture turned out much closer to the actual colours on my card..
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

-Original Post-

I have tried so hard to click a better picture of my card so I could share the actual colour of the Ranunculus flower on my card, but it keeps showing as a yellowish colour when in fact it’s a green colour quite similar to the one in the inspiration photo….

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
This is the inspiration photo and colours provided for the June Challenge…I haves used the three colours provided but gave them a bit of a twist by using green as the flower colour, the grey as the leaves and the rose pink/lavender colour for the background…
I started by creating the front panel of my card…I applied rose red and blush rose Peerless watercolours to a watercolour piece of cardstock and set it aside to dry…once dry I added some splatters of the same colours and then adhered this panel to a plain white card base…
On a separate piece of watercolour cardstock, I stamped the flower and leaves with watermark ink and heat embossed them with a white embossing powder…I then used a couple of Altenew crisp inks and a water brush to colour in these images…I have used bamboo for the flower and silver stone for the leaves…once dry, I die cut these images and adhered them to my card…
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
Then I die cut the word ‘you’ three times from black cardstock using the Altenew fine alphabet dies…I layered the die cuts and added them to my card just above the embossed sentiment strip which completes the sentiment for my card…
To embellish my card I have added some black Nuvo drops and applied some shimmer using my Spectrum Noir shimmer pen…

Ornamental Flowers For Altenew May Inspiration Challenge

I have had so much fun creating this card for the Altenew May 2018 Inspiration Challenge…I got very inspired by the three colours for the challenge and wanted to create a dark background for the gold embossed flowers and leaves…swapping the colours for the leaf and flowers was a very last minute idea and I think it works…what do you think..??

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Here is the image and colours provided for this challenge by Laura Bassen

To begin, I covered a watercolour cardstock front panel with Turquiose green watercolour (Gansai Tambi no. 57)…I used the textured side this time and splattered the same colour on the panel once it was dry…
On a piece of white cardstock, I stamped the flower base in ocean waves Altenew dye ink and the leaves in pinkalicious dye ink…I then stamped the next layer with watermark ink and heat embossed it using rose gold embossing powder…the MISTI came in quite handy as I was able to repeat these steps quite easily…


Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Next, I die cut the flowers and the leaves using the coordinating dies and adhered them to the watercoloured front panel…I cut off the excess from all sides and adhered this panel to a plain white card base…
Since I didnt’t want to add another colour to my card, I used a solid stamp and pinkalicious dye ink to create the pink panel on which I heat embossed the sentiment…I adhered this sentiment label on the card front using some adhesive foam and then added a few gold confetti sequins to embellish my card..
