Two Cards – Anniversary & Congrats

The two cards I’m sharing today were very quick to make and in both these cards I have used techniques that I have learnt by watching Jennifer McGuire’s tutorials….in the anniversary cards with the cosmos flowers I did the fast watercolouring using the inpad directly on the image and for the congrats card I created the glazed distress oxide background using Distress Oxide inks and Distress Glaze on a glossy cardstock piece..

I started my first card by creating the flowers for my card first…I stamped the flower heads using squeezed lemonade and seedless preserves Distress Oxide inks and heat embossed the images using a pearl embossing powder…next I applied some Oxide inks to these images directly from the ink pads -spiced marmalade and picked raspberry – and then used my water spritzer with some gold perfect pearls powder mixed with the water and spritzed the images…this made the colour flow all over the image and colour it automatically…once dry, I die cut these images and set them aside to add to the card later…

I cut out the front panel of my card from Bristol cardstock and sponged some salty ocean Oxide ink all over…I then stamped the flower stems using lucky clover Oxide ink and heat embossed them with pearl embossing powder as well…I then used blueprint sketch Oxide ink and the warp speed stencil to print the pattern just above the stems…I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on this panel and adhered it to the card base…

Finally I adhered the flower heads to my card, using adhesive foam squares under a couple of them for a bit of dimension…and to embellish my card I have simply used clear Nuvo drops …

For my second card I have created yet another glazed Distress Oxide background ( I may be addicted to this technique)…I have used seedless preserves, candied apple and picked raspberry shades Oxide inks here…once the inks were dry, I quickly embossed the background using the WRMK geometric next level embossing powder and adhered this panel to the card base…

I die cut the word congrats three times from a thick white cardstock and once from white glitter cardstock and layered them before adhering them to the card…I also die cut two flowers and one leaf cluster from the same white cardstock…I die cut the topmost layer of these from white glitter cardstock as well and adhered them just above the die cut word…to embellish this card I have used some tiny rhinestones…

Paper Piecing For The Flower Challenge #17

I have created cards in the past with the paper piecing technique without even knowing that is what I was doing…so when the flower challenge came up with the paper piecing challenge for this month,I was very happy to try this technique again…and this time with a proper name…ha ha..

Here is the link for the current challenge if you would like to participate as well – TFC#17
I started by creating the main elements of my card…I have used a printed dsp and some raspberry sorbet dye ink to stamp the flowers which are from the Friends of Life stamp set by Simon Says Stamp…I used the coordinating dies to cut these out and used a different dsp to die cut the leaves..
Next,I die cut three polaroid frames from white cardstock and sponged in some antique linen oxide ink in the center sections…I placed the flower and leaves on the polaroids as well as a gold die cut heart on each of them and set them aside..

I sponged in some Distress Oxide inks on the a white front panel and splattered some Nuvo gold mousse mixed with water on it…the colours I used for the background are antique linen,seedless preserves and lucky clover..I then used a WRMK embossing folder to emboss this background before adhering it to my card front..I also added a strip of gold glitter cardstock at the bottom of my front panel..

Next,I placed all the polaroid frames on my card front and started on the sentiment for my card…I die cut the word ‘hugs’ from the same printed dsp as the flowers as well as white craft foam and layered them before adhering to the card front…and finally I added a stamped label with the word ‘birthday’ on it just above the die cut word..

My card already had so many elements,so I decided not to add any embellishments on it…

Sending Hugs

I really like the lacy background stamp that I have used in this card and wanted it to be the main focus…so I repeat stamped it using a few shades of pink and a few shades of blue dye inks…

I die cut a white panel using the pierced rectangle die and then repeat stamped the lacy border using the following shades of Altenew crisp dye inks – cotton candy,puffy heart,coral berry,persian blue,caribbean sky and arctic…the Misti stamping tool came in very handy for this one..I then wrapped a piece of silver string around this panel quite a few times before adhering it to a light blue textured card base…

I then started on the sentiment for this card…I took a piece of white cardstock and covered it with two of the inks shades that I used to create the background – cotton candy and coral berry and die cut the word ‘hugs’ from it as well as some blue craft foam and layered it before adhering it to the card front…I stamped the word sending on a small white strip and adhered it there as well…

A Baby Card For Altenew September Inspiration Challenge

I had made floral themed cards for the past couple of inspiration challenges that I participated in, so for the Altenew September Inspiration Challenge I decided to create a baby girl congrats card using the colours from the photo by Sveta Fotinia…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
Here is the inspiration photo and I chose to use the colours from the flowers for my card…
On a plain white top panel, I stamped the tiny images from the stamp set and randomly stamped them using the challenge colours to create the background..I used the following Altenew dye inks – frayed leaf, puffy heart, cotton candy, frosty pink, coral berry ,cosmic berry and carribean sky…
I adhered this top panel to a plain white card base and die cut the word ‘congrats’ from pink glitter cardstock as well as pink craft foam using Altenew script word die and layered them before adhering them to the card front…I also added a narrow strip of the same glitter cardstock at the top of my card…

On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped and coloured in the cute onesie and cut it out before placing it on my card, just above the die cut sentiment..I used some craft foam underneath for a bit of dimension…

To embellish my card, I used a few sparkling clear confetti sequins as well as a silver string tied up into a bow at the top of the card…I also added a tiny butterfly to the onesie which I punched from the same glitter cardstock as the die cut sentiment..
Thank you for stopping by to take a look at my card….Hope you will have lovely & blessed day ahead…Happy crafting..!!
