Colourful and Cute Birthday Cards Using Clearly Besotted Stamps

The two cards I’m sharing today has images from Clearly Besotted Stamps as the main focus..also to create the background for my first card I have used one of the Distress Oxide ink blending combo that Kristina Werner shared recently on her blog…

My first card uses the Clearly Besotted Sending Sunshine stamp and dies which I have coloured in using Pinkfresh Studio liquid watercolours…on the background panel I applied spun sugar, picked raspberry and wilted violet Oxide inks…the sentiment is from the Avery Elle Simple Sentiments stamp set and I have used some silver jewels(Little things from Lucy’s Cards) to embellish my card..

My second card is inspired by a previous card I made which was a one layer card…here I have used die cuts and stencils to create a scene and add dimension…
The stamp and die set is called Bird Bath by Clearly Besotted and the garden fence die is by the same company…I have applied twisted citron and mowed lawn Oxide inks on the grassy border and used the MFT mini cloud stencil with salty ocean Oxide ink for the sky background…

Thanks for stopping by my blog…hope you will have a wonderful and happy day today…

Easter Egg Hunt

I had tried out creating a unique pattern using the Drifts & Hills stencil in the Easter card I shared last week…and for today’s card I have done the same for my background panel after watching a tutorial video by Jennifer McGuire to create a glazed Distress Oxide effect on glossy paper…I did not have the glossy paper she used in the tutorial so I used Kodak glossy photo paper and got great results!!

To create the background panel,I cut photo paper to size and then dabbed some Distress Oxide Inks on my craft mat – picked raspberry,orange marmalade and squeezed lemonade, and spritzed some water on them….I smooshed glossy side of my photo paper on it to pick up the ink and then heat set it before repeating the process…to seal the ink on the paper I have rubbed a tiny bit of Distress Glaze all over and buffed it with a soft cloth…
I love how simple and quick this technique is….also the fact that it works so great even on cheap photo paper…can’t wait to try it out again soon!!

Once the front panel was adhered to the card base,I added a die cut fence to it…I applied a bit of weathered wood Distress Ink on this die cut for effect…I added two die cut grassy borders as well on which I have applied twisted citron and peeled paint…to create depth,I added some craft foam underneath the top layer of the grassy border…
On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped,heat embossed and coloured in the images and then cut them out and placed them on my card…I adhered the sentiment as well as some sequins and my card was ready…
