Angel Birthday Cards

I have used MFT Little Angels stamp set to create these 4 birthday cards….even though this was a part of the last year’s holiday stamps release, the images are simply too beautiful to only be used for one occasion..!!

I have used Distress Inks and Oxide Inks to create all the background panels and then adhered those panels to a plain white card base…One of my cards also has a stenciled texture paste background and another one has a cloudy background…

On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped and coloured in all the angel images and die cut them using the coordinating dies…

I added the angel/angels to the card fronts using some foam squares….I added a die cut happy birthday sentiment on the first card and stamped sentiments for rest of the cards….

I have used tiny pink stars embellishments in just one card but I applied Nuvo glaze to the wings of all the angels for a bit of shine ….

Colourful Birthday Cards

The cards I’m sharing today were very quick to make using the new MFT stencil called Ray of Light with Distress/Distress Oxide inks…I have quite a few more ideas for this stencil which hopefully I will try out soon!
I used squeezed lemonade and mustard seed Oxide inks to lightly cover the background panel and then used the stencil with carved pumpkin and spiced marmalade shades….I stamped, coloured in and die cut the images from MFT Knight in shining armor stamp set and added a narrow grass border die cut from green glitter cardstock at the base of the panel ad then adhered the die cut images…I added the front panel to the card base and stamped the sentiment and added some Nuvo drops to embellish my card..

For my second card, I first lightly applied some tumbled glass Distress ink and then used the following inks with the Ray of Light stencil to create the rainbow effect – wilted violet, blueprint sketch, salty ocean, mowed lawn, mustard seed, spiced marmalade and candied apple…I stamped and coloured in the images from MFT Magical Unciorn stamp set, die cut them and applied a bit of glitter marker on them before adhering to the card front…I stamped the sentiment and adhered this panel to the card base…

I hope my colourful cards made you smile today…thank you so much for stopping by…have a happy and crafty day ahead…!!

Cheeky Meerkat Birthday Card

I have always loved all the stamps by Katzelkraft and especially the unique and funny expressions that the characters have…I wanted the stamped image of the meerkat  to be the main focus of my card so I used stencils and Oxide inks to create the background….

On the front panel I first used MFT Radiating Rays stencil and the following Oxide inks – squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, carved pumpkin and spiced marmalade and then used the MFT Grassy Edge stencil and lucky clover Oxide ink near the base to create an area where I would place the stamped image…

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…

Mama Elephant Santa’s Sleigh

Hello friends…today I’m sharing two similar cards but I made the backgrounds slightly different to see which one worked better with my layout..in the end, I decided I liked them both so went ahead and made one each..!!

I started by cutting kraft cardstock to size for the front panel and then used stencils and inks to create the hills background as well as the clouds background…I stamped the sentiments using Versamark ink and the heat embossed them using white embossing powder and adhered these panels to the card base… 
On a piece of white cardstock, I stamped and coloured in the images and then die cut them using the coordinating dies…I adhered the die cuts using some adhesive foam squares for a bit of dimension…I used a black fineliner pen to draw the reins…and finally to embellish my cards, I have added a few while Nuvo drops…

Thank you so much for your time today..hope you liked my cards…have a happy and crafty day ahead..!!

Be Happy

Today’s card started with the colourful background that I created using the Perfect Vine stencil and some Distress Oxide inks….I wanted the background to stand out so decided to use die cut words from black glitter cardstock for the sentiment…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a piece of white watercolour cardstock, I placed the stencil and sponged in some Distress Oxide inks….I have used the shades – picked raspberry, squeezed lemonade and spiced marmalade…I then removed the stencil and used a mini spritzer to spray some perfect pearls mixed with water….this gives the background a nice effect as well as a lot of shine…once dry, I die cut the front panel from it using a dotted rectangle die and adhered it to a plain white card base…

Next, I die cut the words ‘be’ and ‘happy’ from black glitter cardstock as well as from black craft foam and layered them before adhering to my card front…I also added two black heat embossed and die cut leaves from vellum paper which I simply coloured in using a green marker…and to embellish my card I have used a few black Nuvo drops…

Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Sharing another quick card today….I used Oxide inks to stamp the scribble flower images on the front panel of my card and I already have another idea forming in my head using this MFT circle scribble stamp set…I kept the colours to a minimum for this card and have left a bit of blank space so that the beautiful flowers and leaves remain in focus…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by die cutting the front panel using a large cross stitch rectangle die and then stamped all the flowers and leaves using the following Oxide inks – worn lipstick, seedless preserves, twisted citron, lucky clover…I then adhered this panel on the front of a pink card base…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I stamped the sentiment using seedless preserves Oxide ink with label maker sentiment stamp set and cut them out before adhering them to my card using some adhesive foam for a bit of dimension…

To embellish my card I have added some pink jewels in various sizes..

Reveal Wheel Birthday Card

Lawn Fawn has done it again…this reveal wheel card was so easy to make with their reveal wheel dies and the coordinating sentiments and dies to go with them…everything comes together so easily and quickly and the end result is perfect…here are a few video tutorials that are helpful in understanding how to put the reveal wheel together –  Reveal Wheel 3 ways by Nichol Sphor, Reveal Wheel by Carissa Wiley and Reveal Wheel card Design by Jennifer McGuire

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Before putting together all the die cut elements for the reveal wheel, I applied some Distress Oxide inks to create the background…I have used cracked pistachio, peacock feathers and blueprint sketch shades here…I also stamped some tiny confetti all over this panel using unicorn white ink….

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Once I finalised the layout of this panel, I stamped the sentiment using black ink and then assembled the reveal wheel section…I added a stamped, coloured in and die cut dinosaur on this panel as well…

On a plain white card base, I adhered a diagonally striped colourful printed front panel and then added the reveal wheel on top….I also stamped an arrow and ‘turn the wheel’ stamp to make it easy for the recipient to understand how the card works..
Here is a small video I made to show you how my card turned out…

Big Hugs – Pivot Pop Up Card

Interactive cards take more time to create, but the results are almost always definitely worth the effort..I wanted to try making a pivot pop up card but make it simple rather than adding too many elements to it and make it over the top time consuming kind…well, it can be done….and here’s is my card..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Firstly, I ink blended the front panel as well as the inside of the card base using Distress Oxide inks…I have used squeezed lemonade, spiced marmalade, candied apple and black soot shades here…I also splattered a lot of water on both these blended backgrounds…
I started with the front panel by adding the stitched trails on it and then added a die cut oval frame…I adhered a hilly edge at the base of this oval for the elephant to stand on and then adhered this frame to the panel…I added the large scripty stamped and die cut sentiment below it…I adhered a couple of clouds as well and embellished this panel with tiny star sequins before adhering it to the card base..

Next, I die cut the pivot pop up mechanism and adhered it to the inside of my card…the base of this mechanism is die cut from white cardstock and the yellow pop up panel from Lawn Fawn really rainbow paper pack…I also added a the hilly edge at the base for all the animals to sit on..

On a separate piece of white card stock, I stamped and coloured in all the images I required for my card…I then cut them out by hand and placed them on my card…I added some die cut trees at the base and a party banner at the top..I also added a party hat for each of the animals…finally, I stamped the sentiments and a couple of hashtag stamps and the inside of my card was ready as well…

An Inside Shadow Box Christmas Card for Time Out Challenge #111

Recently Jennifer McGuire shared one of the easiest way to create an inside shadow box card and I have tried it out to create this Christmas card for Time Out Challenge #111 where the theme is ‘Holidays’….there was an optional twist of a one layer card, which I obviously haven’t applied to my card..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
After creating the two pieces required to create this card base, I first created the card front by making an ocean scene using the make waves stencil and Oxide inks – salty ocean & blueprint sketch….I added a small wavy panel for a bit of dimension …the sentiment was white heat embossed on this panel…
I adhered the coloured in and die cut images of the ice floe, polar bear, a Christmas tree and the presents on the card front and added some gold stars to embellish it….
In the inside of this section, I applied some more Oxide inks with the make waves stencil again to continue the ocean scene from the card front…I stamped the sentiment using black ink and set it aside..
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
On the second section, I scored and prepared the shadow box as shown in the tutorial by Jennifer McGuire and die cut a large rectangular section from it…I applied some Oxide ink on the inside frame and adhered it to the first section that I had prepared earlier…
Now all I had to to was to add all the coloured in and die cut images on the inside of my card and my card was ready…
It was a bit difficult to take pictures of my card to show how it looks so I’m sharing a small video here…
I’m glad you stopped by to take a look at my card..thank you….Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

Two Small Shaped Cards

I like to create shaped cards every once in a while….the last time I made one, it was a heart shaped card for a challenge and I wanted to create a few more…they were pretty quick to make so I made two while I was at it…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

For my first card I die cut two scalloped circles from heavyweight white cardstock and adhered them to create the card base…next I die cut a circle from watercolour cardstock for the front panel and applied some Distress Oxide inks on it…I have used salty ocean, blueprint sketch and shaded lilac for this and then dabbed it with a wet stamp shammy to create that background effect…I added a small grassy die cut on this circle and adhered it to the card front…
On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped and coloured in the sheep and cut it out and placed it on the card front…I then stamped the sentiment using black ink and embellished my card with a few clear confetti sequins..
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
My second card was much quicker to create….I first die cut two edged circles from black cardstock for the card base and one smaller one from kraft cardstock for the front panel…I stamped the sentiment and the pattern with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder…it is a layering stamp, so I heat embossed the sentiment layer with white embossing powder and then adhered this top panel to the card base..
To add a bit of interest, I coloured in the flower and two leaves with a shimmery silver watercolour and adhered some tiny red sequins to embellish it…

I think I spent more time trying to click pictures of these two cards than I did making them…one or both of them kept rolling away…and this is the only picture of these two ‘not in motion’…ha ha..

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..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
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…
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

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 …

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

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…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

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…

Smile Crocodile

I have finally been able to try one of the techniques shared by Jennifer McGuire for stamping on Kraft cardstock and getting brighter results from coloured ink…the trick it seems is to stamp first with white pigment ink and then with the coloured ink…and any kind of a stamping tool like the MISTI or TH stamp platform would definitely come in handy…although for my card I have used a stencil not stamps but the process is the same…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
After cutting the front panel to size, I used a circle stencil with an inking sponge to apply unicorn white ink and then various Oxide inks to create my pattern…once completely dry,I stamped the chevron grid background stamp covering this panel with watermark ink and then heat embossed it with a super fine pearl embossing powder…I adhered this panel to a Kraft cardstock card base and started on the other elements of my card..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I stamped the cute koala and crocodile on a piece of white cardstock and coloured them in using Zig  pens and a water brush…I die cut them using the coordinating dies and set them aside….I die cut the word smile from white cardstock ) which I coloured blue using salty ocean Oxide ink and two more time from Kraft cardstock and layered them before adhering to the card stock..I stamped the word ‘crocodile’ on a white label and placed it below the large word…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I adhered the koala and crocodile images using some foam squares and also applied some Nuvo gloss to these images for a bit of shine and dimension…to embellish my card I have added some white dot sequins…
