Mr & Mrs – Wedding Congratulations Cards

I am sharing two wedding congratulations cards today….the design and layout is the same but I have made one with a pink theme and another with a lavender theme…my apologies for the bad pictures, even though I tried many times – the gold foil cardstock that I have used to die cut the mr & mrs does not show well…

On the two watercolour cardstock front panels, I stamped the Mama Elephant Wild Meadow borders and gold heat embossed them….I coloured them in using Zig markers and gold heat embossed half of the sentiment as well…

I die cut the mr & mrs word die from gold foil cardstock and layered it with the same die cut from white craft foam and then adhered them to the card front to complete the sentiment…I punched out some butterflies and coloured them in before adhering them on the card front…

I Treasure Your Friendship

I love this quote by H.J.Brown – “Remember that most valuable antiques are dear old friends.”….and the card I’m sharing today is for a treasured friend…I have used two adorable fairy images from Penny Black stamps for my card….

I first die cut the front panel from watercolour cardstock using a large cross stitch rectangle die and then did some ink smooshing using the following Distress Oxide ink shades – black soot, seedless preserves,broken china and peacock feathers..
Once dry,I stamped the sentiment on this panel using Versafine onyx black ink and quickly heat embossed it using some clear embossing powder and adhered this panel to a textured sea green coloured card base…

On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped and coloured in the two fairy images using my Spectrum Noir markers and then carefully cut them out and adhered them to the card front using adhesive foam square…

Amazing – That’s What You Are

I chose softer colours for today’s card…since I usually choose bright colours,to make cards with soft colours I have to keep reminding myself to stick to the plan… 🙂


The card base is made from lavender colour textured cardstock and I have die cut white cardstock using stitched rectangle die for the front panel…I covered this panel with shaded lilac,iced spruce and weathered wood Distress inks….I then used stitched star dies to dry emboss this panel as well…


On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped one of the fairies from the Penny Black stamp set and coloured it in..I cut it out and applied some glossy accents on it and let it dry before placing it on the card…
I die cut the word ‘Amazing’ using blue shimmer cardstock and then using blue craft foam,layered them before adhering it to the card…I stamped the rest of the sentiment on a strip of blue shimmer cardstock as well…

To embellish my card I punched out butterflies from a piece of cardstock on which I had applied some blue watercolour…I also added a tiny purple rhinestone on each of these butterflies…Here is a close up shot of the fairy..

Bird & Butterflies- Scrapbook Boutique August Challenge

As soon as I saw the moodboard for this month’s challenge at the Scrapbook Boutique blog,I went through all my stamps..didn’t find anything I liked at first…a weird umbrella stamp from ages ago,small or odd looking bird stamps and no shoes stamps at all…got quite a few ideas that didn’t work…but I kept going and here are the cards that I created for this challenge…

For my first card I chose a light grey textured cardstock for a top folding card base…I stamped the big top stamp twice on a white panel using cool graphite dye ink and then layered it with a dark grey cardstock..I added some craft foam under the top panel before adhering it to the card base…

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped the large butterfly using squeezed lemonade Distress Ink..I also stamped another butterfly using Versamark ink on Vellum and heat embossed it using silver embossing powder..I cut both butterflies out,layered them and placed them on the card front…

To make sure that the punched out butterflies are the same colour as the main butterfly,I stamped a mirror stamp using the same ink onto a scrap piece of cardstock and the punched the butterflies…I adhered morning dew Nuvo drops as embellishments on these butterflies…

I stamped the sentiment on a light grey banner using the same grey ink as the front panel and adhered it to the card front using some craft foam…

I made this second card before the butterflies card and when I was putting it together,I made a bit of a mistake on it…had a mind blank moment so I set it aside till I could fix it and started on another card…I blame it on the flu that I’ve just been gifted by my elder daughter.. 😦

I first die cut a white top layer using large cross stitched rectangle die and stamped the bird image using buttered popcorn Ranger dye ink….I re-stamped it on my Mini Misti using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with a pearl embossing powder…

I masked the image and used a cloud stencil and Distress Inks to print the clouds all over the front panel..I used hickory smoke and weathered wood shades here..I also splaterred a bit of grey ink all over…

I stamped the sentiment on a white strip and layered it with a grey glitter cardstock…added some black craft foam underneath it before adhering it to the card front…I also stamped a few red hearts above the sentiment…

I had already fixed and re-stamped the sentiment two times and something or the other went wrong..and had glued this one onto the card when I saw a small red dot on it…it didn’t come off with the sand eraser so I just went ahead and added the rhinestones and finished my card…I think I will re-do the sentiment label once I’m feeling a bit better..

Thank you for stopping by my blog today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!

Sunshine,Laughter & Flowers Card

I used to love using patterned cardstock for card bases when I started cardmaking…but slowly I stopped using it altogether…I agree that a white card base brings out the most in a card,but I still can’t stop myself from using coloured card bases and even printed cardstock bases once in a while…
So on a printed light+dark green card base,I prepared a white top layer by first masking off a triangular area near to bottom and then stamping a flower background stamp with light pink ink…once that was done,I used a ruler and pink maker to draw a line under the stamped area to make two distinct zones on the card…I stamped a dotted line stamp with green ink under the pink line…and finally stamped the sentiment under it…
The image at the base of the card is a clear stamp from Fizzy Moon called Special Wishes and I have cut it out from a separate piece of paper after colouring it in…
Once the top layer was ready and adhered to the card,I punched out some tiny butterflies from gold glitter cardstock and glued them randomly onto the card…
Hope you liked this card….

Post#200 – My 200th Post Encouragement Card…!!!!

Thank you for visiting my blog today……you’re reading my 200th post….I’m quite happy that I’ve been able to keep going with my craft and blog….being able to share my creations online with people from all over the world is an awesome feeling…and to hear encouraging words from talented crafters is even more fantastic….
The card is plain orange……the top layer is made using distress inks and water on watercolour paper…then I splattered it with Emerald colour Twinkling H2O using a paintbrush….once all the paint was dry,I stamped a butterfly on one corner of the card….
I have used three strips of paper to stamp the sentiment on and placed it at three different levels on the card…and then punched out butterflies from blue foil cardstock and added a red rhinestone on each of them before placing them on the card….
I hope you liked the card….Thanks for stopping by….

Post#163 Rainbow Butterflies Birthday Card & Card Box

I had so much fun making this card….it has bright colours and lots of butterflies….a perfect card for my cheerful little girl who’s turning 10 today….
The card base is 5″x 7″ made from plain pink cardstock….the top layer is plain pink as well…there is a large banner at the top made from silver glitter cardstock with the sentiment heat embossed with white embossing powder….
For all the butterflies,I coloured in seven 2” square pieces of paper with rainbow shades of watercolours….once dry,I die cut the large butterflies and punched out the smaller ones….I attached a rhinestone on each of these butterflies and adhered them onto the top layer of the card….
Once you enter the details of the box you require,this Box Buster will calculate the size of paper required to create the box as well the the first and second punch….
For larger boxes it does warn you that the paper will overhang the envelope punch board so please be careful….I did not face this problem since the 1 2 3 Punch board has an extendable arm and I can easily score the full length….
There is also a video tutorial as well – How to use the Box Buster App for any size box by Crafty Owl 
My card sits perfectly in this envelope box that I created with printed paper….I also attached a couple of butterflies on the front of the box…
Hope you liked this card…Don’t forget to bookmark the link for the Box Buster….

Post#144 DIY Background Birthday Card

This card was so much fun to create…..mainly the background….all you need is some water soluble colour and a drinking straw…and very soon you will have one of a kind background ready for your card…
I used Peerless watercolors and a Pentel Aquash water brush…after picking up the colour I wanted,I dropped a few drops of colour on the card..it’s easier with the water brush….and then the fun started…I took a drinking straw and blew air over these droplets….very soon the water started running/spreading in all directions…I did the same with 2-3 more colours…
Since the background is the hero of this card,I did not want to hide it under unnecessary embellishments,so I simply adhered a die cut word ‘happy’ from gold cardstock and stamped the word ‘birthday’ under it…
There is a layered gold and orange butterfly and a couple of tiny ones on the card…on one side is a strip of gold and red cardstock…
This is a fun technique to try with kids…you could even create your own wrapping paper this way…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#102 – Self Closing Angled Box

I am a big fan of boxes and bags which don’t need a fiddly attachment in order to close and open them…..so when I saw this tutorial for a self closing box by Dawn Griffith…I had to try it out…
At first I thought that with all these angles it must be a bit tricky but I was surprised at how very easy it is to make this box…and you can make 2 boxes from a sheet of 12″ x 12″ cardstock…
I kept the decorations simple and just added two banners and stamped on the top one and added a butterfly punch..
Hope you liked this box….I also hope you will try this one out….
