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…

Be Happy – Altenew March Inspiration Challenge

This month’s Altenew Challenge is by Virginia LuI really love her cardmaking style and my entry for the challenge is also inspired by her as she has created some cards with heat embossed flowers on vellum which look so very very beautiful….and that’s exactly what I did for my card..heat embossed some flowers…

This is the image and colours for the challenge…

I cut watercolor cardstock to size for my front panel and used a piece of acetate, Altenew crisp dye inks and water spray bottle to create the background by simply smooshing the ink on paper…I have used aqualicious,coral bliss and sunkissed shades here…once dry,I used a postage stamp edge rectangle die to emboss the edges of my panel and then adhered it to a plain white card base…

On a piece on vellum paper,I stamped a few Cosmos flowers using Versamark ink and then heat embossed it using gold embossing powder…I didn’t have the matching dies by then,so I simply cut them out…I carefully adhered these flowers to my front panel by using a liquid glue just behind the embossed areas so it wouldn’t show…
Next,I die cut the word ‘BE’ three times from thick cardstock using bold caps die and layered them together…I sponged some coral bliss ink on it before adhering it the the card front..I gold heat embossed¬† the rest of the sentiment on a small white strip and sponged aqualicious ink on it to stick to the colours in the challenge..and finally I added some gold Nuvo drops to embellish my card…

You Make Me Happy – Two Cards

The two cards I’m sharing today have the same message and a warm colour scheme, but I have tried my best to make them as different from each other as I could…the first one is a shaker card with a stencilled background and the second one has a few rows of string lights as the main focus..

I started by creating the background for my shaker card….I have used the Bohemian Bazaar stencil with Distress Oxide inks to print the pattern on a glossy photo paper(Kodak brand)…the oxide inks were slightly rubbing off when touched so I guess it was a good decision to use this panel for a shaker card…I have used squeezed lemonade,wild honey and carved pumpkin ink shades here..I also glued some metallic orange sequins to this panel before adhering it to the card base…
I then die cut a rectangle frame from orange cardstock and added some acetate behind it…I created the well for the shaker using craft foam and added the sequins and attached it to the card base..since the photo paper was glossy,the sequins moved quite well inside the shaker..

I adhered the die cut word ‘happy’ and the stamped sentiment strip on the front of my card and added a cute stamped image of a little girl as well and my card was ready…

For my second card,I stamped the string lights using Versafine black onyx ink and heat embossed them using clear embossing powder before colouring them in using watercolours…I then sponged the edges with fossilised amber Oxide ink and stamped the sentiment using vintage photo Oxide ink…

I stamped a pinwheel just above the sentiment and coloured it in before adhering this panel onto a plain white card base…to embellish my card I have added a few gold Nuvo drops as well as a bit of shimmer on the pinwheel..
