Colourful Thank You Card

The was one of the easiest and most fun colourful background I’ve made recently….and no prizes for guessing what ink I’ve used…Distress inks of course…!!
I have used a blue cardstock for the card base and water colour cardstock for the top layer…then I used a 1” circle punch and some scrap copy paper and created a few stencils…I could’ve used an acetate sheet for the same…but it was much faster and convenient with paper…
Using bright distress ink colours and the paper stencils,I started printing the pattern on the top layer…I then stamped,heat embossed and die cut the sentiment….coloured in and cut out a little fairy image…and placed both of them on the card…I have used a few rhinestones to embellish this card…
I’m so glad and thankful you stopped by to take a look at my card….Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

Party Time

Hoping You’re Better Soon Card

With the kind of cold and wet July we are having here,it’s no wonder almost everyone is going through some sickness or the other…can’t wait for Spring to arrive and the days to get longer and brighter…
I decided to make a bright get well card today and tried out a bit of shading with three colours of distress inks….The card base is a bright jade green kind of colour and the top layer is plain white…I used a stencil with various sizes of circles to create the pattern on the top layer and then stamped the sentiment stamp using black ink….
To add a bit of dimension to the card,I coloured in a bit of paper using pink ink and punched out a few circles in much smaller sizes and placed them on the card…I then used glossy accents on them….I’m sorry I couldn’t click a better picture to show the full effect but those punched out circles really shine and stand out on the card…
Finally I added a few colourful sequins in various sizes to embellish the card…
Thanks for stopping by to take a look…Have a blessed day today…!!’

Happy Birthday Shaker Card

I love creating shaker pockets for cards,bookmarks or tags….and today I’ve tried out a shaped shaker pocket for a card front…this time I’ve tried to be very neat so that I don’t have to cover up the edges with a frame or embellishments…which also means that this card is not bulky at all and can be posted as standard post…
I started with a bright pink card base and a bright green top layer….I then created the shaker pocket using the fuse tool and a photo sleeve pocket which I filled up with lots of bright sequins before sealing it at the top…
I then attached the fuse pocket to the top of the card and added a scalloped border strip from pink foil cardstock over it…I used the same foil card stock to punch out a circle for the stamped sentiment as well as the die cut scripty ‘Happy Birthday’ word and placed these on the card..
Just realised that I did not add the dot on the ‘i’ from the die cut….also known as a ‘tittle’….I’ll add it now but there is no time to re-shoot… 🙂
Hope you liked this card…

Post#174 – Distress Inks,Stencils+Water Background Cards

I have followed a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire to create backgrounds for all these cards….I got quite excited by such a good result and went ahead and made a couple more cards using this technique…
Here is the link for the tutorial – Easy Distress Ink Backgrounds by Jennifer McGuire
It’s an excellent video so there is no need for me to write down much details….
I did however mix a bit of twinkling H2O watercolour in my water spritzer for a shiny look as I do not have any other kind of pre-bottled shimmer spritzer etc….
The cards are only lightly decorated as the background is the hero in all these cards….
Hope you liked these cards…
Do you have a favourite??Let me know…

Post#151 Confetti Card

It was high time that I tried a confetti card myself….there are a lot of versions on Pinterest and I’ve been delaying trying that because I first wanted to try making a very small envelope using a WRMK 1 2 3 punch board…

Since I wasn’t able to find dimensions for a tiny envelope online,I sat down with the punch board and came up with one that I could use on this card….I used a 3″ square double sided paper and the first punch and score line is at 1&3/4″….

Once the envelope was ready,I stuck it on the card and covered the card with colourful punched circles and rhinestones in a way that they seem to be bursting out of the envelope….

The sentiment is stamped on a small gold cardstock banner and placed on the envelope…

Hope you liked this confetti card….

Post#149 Embossed Birthday Card Wrapped With Gold String

After making quite a few brightly coloured cards,I wanted to make a card with a light colour theme….
First the top layer of this card has been sponged using various distress inks….then it was embossed using the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder….I wrapped a gold string around it and glued three thin strips of paper on one side…
For the sentiment stamps I used gold cardstock and stamped with black stazon ink and then punched them out using circle punches….to decorate the card I have used various tiny punches with the same gold cardstock as well as a few rhinestones…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#130 – Christmas Shaker Tag

Today I’m sharing a Christmas tag with a small shaker element…..I think that gives the tag a bit of a festive feel….
I started by die cutting the base of the tag using labels eight nesting dies from spellbinders….I then die cut about 6 small circle frames from white cardstock and stuck them one on top of another near the base of the tag….then put in a few sequins and sealed it using an acetate circle…and finally die cut another frame in blue and glued it on top….
Once the shaker section was ready I quickly attached the stamped sentiment and a few sequins and pearls …I glued a 3/4″ red circle and a 1/2″ white one near the top of the tag and and punched a hole for the ribbon…
Hope you liked this tag…
