Monsters Celebrate!

Bright and colourful cards make me happy….and I love making these kinds of cards for children…I had made a Halloween card using the Lawn Fawn Monster Mash stamp set last year but wanted to make a birthday card from it…and here it is…
The card base is made from a textured lilac coloured cardstock and for the top layer I have cut watercolor paper to size…I then started sponging in various distress inks for the background…and since I didn’t want to add layers to this card or make it bulky,I created a mask from scrap paper to create the hills in the background…I then splattered some blue glitter onto the top layer and set it aside to dry…
On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped and coloured in all the cute little monsters and cut them out…going through all my stamps I found a few party hats,presents,balloons,cupcake stamps with which I could create the party look…
Once all the images were adhered to the card,I added a couple of googly eyes on two of the monsters for a bit of a fun element…I stamped the sentiment and added a white faux stitch border on the card to finish it..
Thank you for your visit today…I’m glad you stopped by my blog…Have a wonderful day ahead…!!

Post#92 Clear Shaker Invitation using Stampers Anonymous Cityscapes Set(New York)

So this is the fourth project using the Cityscapes stamp set and today’s stamp is of New York cityscape and I’ve managed to use the whole stamp for this one rather than a section of it…
I’ve had this idea of making a clear shaker party invitation for a while now…and once I saw the New York cityscape stamp, I knew exactly what I was going to make with it…
I started by stamping the cityscape image on the back of an acrylic pocket using stazon black ink…..adding sequins to the whole pocket would have made the stamp not stand out so I decided to make two sections….the top part is the shaker section filled with sequin stars….there is also a tiny tab section a the top where the tag can be attached…
I also stamped the word ‘party’ on the top section with white stazon ink…and the shaker section was ready…then I die cut a tag and created a background using the party word stamp repeatedly….then I stamped and heat embossed ‘you’re invited’ on the tag….I used ribbons and gold string to attach the tag to the clear shaker …
I had a lot of fun creating something different today…Hope you liked it..

Post#79 Love You Glitter Tag

I try out quite a few things/ideas all the time….some turn out perfect or quite good….some go straight into the bin ..while some turn out somewhere in the middle….but I learn something new every single time…..like this tag that I’m sharing with you today… 🙂
My aim was to create a die cut word tag and the use glitter to fill in the negative spaces….So I die cut the words love & you on a large tag…then put double sided tape on the back of the tag…then I attached a slightly smaller tag at the back…Now I had to add glitter on the words and press them down so quite a lot of it stick onto the tape and create the glitter effect words on the tag…
Now here is what I learnt…for this technique one should always use superfine glitter as quite a lot of it would stick onto the tape…unlike the not-so-fine glitter that I used…it still turned out quite nice…
Jennifer McGuire has quite a lot of  excellent tutorials on using glitter with dies etc…Once I am able to get the right kind of glitter I plan to go through her tutorials again… 
I stamped a hearts border stamp on the top section of the stamp and added ribbons to finish the tag…
Hope you liked it…
