Colourful and Cute Birthday Cards Using Clearly Besotted Stamps

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…

Hello

To create today’s card I have used three stamps sets from three different stamp companies…the little birds are from Clearly Besotted,the atlas stamp is by Amy Tangerine and the big hello word is from an Avery Elle stamp set…if you are not restricted by brands etc. then you can mix and match to create something unique all the time…how great is that…!!

For a plain white card base,I chose a watercolor paper top layer…then using a few different shades of blue distress inks,a piece of acetate and some water,I created the background for the card…once this was dry,I stamped the atlas and hello stamp using black pigment ink and quickly heat embossed them using clear embossing powder…
On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped,coloured in and cut out the little birds and placed them onto the card…I have also applied some  glossy accents on these birds for a bit of shine…and finally I adhered a few hear sequins to embellish this card…
Thanks for visiting my blog today…Hope you will have a great day ahead….!!

Two Cards Using Cut Outs Die

I have never tried out word cut out dies before and today I’m sharing the first couple of cards I have made using them…I made the second card(the red and white one)first but it seemed a bit too simple and then my younger daughter came along and suggested that I make a shaker card…so I did… 🙂
For my first card I chose a black cardstock to make the card base and a plain bright yellow top layer….I simply placed the die where I wanted the cut out and ran it through my Cuttlebug…once that was done,I created the shaker element by adding a piece of acetate and black craft foam behind the top layer for the shaker element…after adding some bright coloured sequins inside the shaker ‘well’ I adhered it to the card base…
On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the cute birds from Clearly Besotted and coloured them in before cutting them out and placing them onto the card..I also adhered a few sequins to embellish the card…

As I said,I made this second card first as I was just trying to see what results these dies gave….since my card size is a bit larger than the standard ones,these dies don’t cover the top layer perfectly…I will be using a smaller card size with these dies next time…
The card base is plain red and the top layer is cut to size from white cardstock…I then placed the die about an inch from the top and die cut that part…then using bright colours from my Ranger dye inkpads,I stamped the large heart stamp repeatedly…
Finally I embellished the card using a lot of different coloured sequins..

Crazy About You

Well the second month of this year is already here…and it’s going to pass very quickly too…hope you are ready with a few Valentines Day cards by now…if not,then there is still time…
Today I’m sharing another card where I haven’t gone overboard with colours and embellishments…it’s simple but still quite cute…
The card base is plain white and so is the top layer…I have embossed the  top layer using a Heidi Swapp embossing folder(sorry,don’t know what it’s called – pls let me know if you do)…
On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped the little birdies as well as the word crazy…I coloured in and cut out the birds and die cut the word crazy before placing them on the card…I also used glossy accents on them…
Lastly,I stamped  a tiny red heart and the remaining sentiment using red ink directly onto the top layer and my card was ready…
Thank you for your visit today…I’m glad you stopped by my blog…Have a wonderful day ahead…!!

Happy Bird-day

This is officially the last week of spring in Australia…it has been a rather wet,cold and windy one for the south-east of the country but hopefully we should see a good summer…days are getting longer and that means there is good light to plan or finish a few projects…
Today I’m sharing a ‘bird-day’ card I have made using another very cute Clearly Besotted stamp set called Bird Bath…the card base is made from a textured green cardstock and the top layer is plain white…
I started by firstly sponging in some green distress ink for the grass and then using a cloud mask and blue distress ink,I added a few clouds….I then stamped the birds and the bird bath using black ink….
Once the colouring in was complete,I stamped the sentiment and adhered the top layer to the card base….I used a few rhinestones to embellish the card…
Thank you so much for taking the time and visiting my blog today…Hope you will have a wonderful day ahead…!!
