Scrapbook Boutique June Challenge – Black & Gold

The card I’m sharing today is my entry for the Scrapbook Boutique June challenge…and the theme of this month’s moodboard is ‘Gold Is The New Black’…and as you can see my card is just gold and black….I think I spent more time trying to click a good enough picture of this card rather than creating it..!! 🙂

I started with a gold cardstock for the card base and a black top layer slightly smaller than the card front…I then splattered the top layer with gold paint and once dry embossed it with Heidi Swapp wanderlust embossing folder… this embossing folder has thick stripes on it which look great and also helped me place the alphabet die cuts on the card properly which was a bonus…

Using gold foil cardstock,I die cut three different sized Polaroid frames and chose a black cardstock for the center…I stamped a few different flowers on these using watermark ink and heat embossed the images using gold embossing powder…

For the sentiment I first stamped a stripy border on a piece of gold cardstock(same as card base) using watermark ink and then heat embossed it using gold embossing powder….I die cut the alphabets from this and layered them with craft foam before adhering them to the card as well as the Polaroid frames…

To embellish my card I have simply added a few black Nuvo drops on the Polaroid frames…Here is a close up shot of my card…hope you can see the gold heat embossing on the alphabet dies a bit better in this picture…

Best Daughter In The World

I decided to use White and Gold as the theme for my card today and this is what I created…
The card base is made from gold cardstock and the top layer has been cut to size from white cardstock…to create the background on the top layer,I splattered a bit of metallic gold paint and set it aside to dry…

Then using gold foil cardstock,I die cut the damask motif….on a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped the banner and sentiment using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder…

After assembling all the elements on the card base,I was undecided whether to add embellishments or not…and finally decided not to…
Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look at my card….Have lovely & blessed day ahead…!!

Thanks Card

I usually go for very bright and colourful cards so for a change decided to make today’s card using earthy colours….
The card base is plain sepia and the top layer has been die cut from watercolour cardstock using large cross stitched rectangle die….I have sponged the top layer using tea dye distress ink and die cut a circle in it…I placed a frosted gold paper behind the top layer to cover the die cut area…
I then die cut and watercoloured a few leaf dies and placed them on the frosted gold area and added a die cut stitched gold circle frame on top…
The sentiment is a wood veneer word by Stampin’ Up! and I have used gold sequins to embellish the card…to add a little pop of colour to my card I punched out two red butterflies and added them to the card…
I’m so glad you stopped by to take a look at my card today….Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

Thanks For All You Do

Today I am sharing a simple thank you card…but to make it a bit more attractive and to make the die cut trees stand out,I have placed them onto small mat layers…
The card base is made from gold cardstock and the top layer has been cut out from a bright red card stock…I then die cut the trees using the MFT Trees in the forest dies and coloured then in using distress inks…I placed these die cut first on a black background and layered it with gold cardstock…
Once these mats were placed onto the top layer,I stamped the sentiment directly onto the card using black ink…
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card…Have a blessed day today…!!

Card Using Birthday Cake Digi by Cre8tive Hands

Today I’m sharing a card with yet another super cute image by Michelle Kierznowski.…I loved the little rabbit looking from behind the huge cake…I coloured in the digi with my Spectrum Noir markers and cut it out so I could place it on a black die cut polaroid frame….I have gold heat embossed the sentiment directly on the frame…
Now that the main element of the card was ready,I started assembling the card…the card base is plain light green and the top layer has been cut out from gold cardstock…I then placed a strip each of black and gold glitter cardstock on one side of the top layer…I placed a gold doily near the top and then adhered the polaroid frame above it at an angle….
I die cut a few sequins from the same green cardstock and embellished the card with them as well as gold adhesive pearls to finish the card…..

Thank You For Your Friendship Card

Today I’m sharing a simple card which seems like it was created in minutes…but actually took me a few days to finish…I was totally out of ideas once I got the background ready…
The card base in plain pink and the background layer is made by distress inks and simple paper masking….the top layer is made from vellum paper and is slightly smaller than the background layer….I have used a pink gel ink pen to draw the stitch lines on it…
Then I die cut a flourish embellishment from gold foil cardstock and placed it on the center of the card…and placed the gold embossed sentiment banner above it…
I have decorated the card with colourful rhinestones which also help hide the glue dots that help to adhere the vellum layer onto the card…
Thanks for stopping by to take a look…Happy crafting…

Distress Ink Lifting Technique Tried Again

Last month I shared a card in which I had tried the Distress Ink Lifting technique(Post#193)for the first time after following a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire…now that was my trial/practice card but I felt it turned out great so was happy to share it on my blog….
I’ve tried that technique again….and hopefully you’ll agree that I’ve done a better job this time…At first it may look like I used Kraft Cardstock for the top layer…..but I’ve not…read on and you’ll find out…
The card base is plain light yellow and the top layer is made from plain white watercolour cardstock….I have stamped the roses and petals with Versamark in and heat embossed them using white embossing powder…now the fun starts….I used Tea Dye Distress inkpad to liberally cover the whole top layer with ink….
Then I used an aqua brush to lift ink from inside the embossed images…and once it was dry,I used mowed lawn,picked raspberry and seedless preserves to colour in….and just so the focus remains on the technique,I have used die cut sequins from gold cardstock as well as a banner for the sentiment…
What do you think about this card..??Hope you liked it…

Watercolour Wash With Gold Embossing card

This simple watercolour wash technique seems to be pretty popular again these days…I’ve tried this  effect out with watercolours and distress inks quite a few times….a lot of card makers are even using stamping ink to create fabulous watercolour effect backgrounds for their cards and projects….
The card base is a plain light blue….The top layer is white watercolor paper on which I’ve used a single shade of Peerless watercolours to create the light background….I have used gold heat embossing powder and versamark ink to stamp and heat emboss the large sentiment stamp…
I have also stamped a few hearts on the card with red ink to bring a bit of brightness on the card….and to decorate the card a bit more,I have adhered a few hearts die cut from gold cardstock…
It’s quite a simple looking card but I do like it and I hope you do too…

Post#190 – HBD2U Card

So if you are into texting,tweeting etc.,then you know it’s quite normal to use abbreviation (of the whole sentence) to wish someone on their birthday….and many other greetings…
My card today has a dark pink card base and the top layer is a Stampin Up DSP called Its My Party…I die cut two sizes of stitched circles and layered them….then I die cut the alphabets H,B & D from pink glitter cardstock and adhered those to the top circle….
I then cut a gold banner and a pink banner and layered them….again I die cut 2 and U from white glitter cardstock and adhered it to the banner….this was placed under the circles….
I have used gold and pink sequins to decorate the card….the DSP is black and closely printed so there wasn’t much scope to add anything else…
Hope you liked this card….thanks for stopping by to take a look…

Post#182 Thinking of You Card

Today I’m sharing a bright and cheerful card….I’m pretty sure whoever receives this card is going to know that the sender was really thinking of them… 🙂
The card base is a bright orange colour and the top layer is plain yellow…I have embossed the top layer using the Lattice embossing folder….I then stamped the flowers and leaves on white cardstock and cut them out…I adhered them onto the card using adhesive foam squares….
I stamped the sentiment on a gold banner and layered another orange one underneath it…and finally added a few gold sequins to decorate the card..
Hope you liked it…

Post#179 Happy Anniversary Card

Today I’m sharing a simple and elegant anniversary card…..
My Stampin Up demonstrator sent me a few goodies last month….some beautiful cardstock,some printed DSP and some embellishments…and this plain green cardstock caught my eye….It’s such a pretty colour…I’m not familiar with SU paper colours but I think this one is called Pistachio Pudding(pls. correct me if I’m wrong)…
I have used gold cardstock as the base and the green as the mat…I wanted the green to show more so the top layer is quite smaller than the green one….
After rounding the corners of all the layers,I have stamped the top layer using Versamark Ink and a large Doily Stamp and then used a gold embossing powder to heat emboss it…I also stamped and gold embossed the ‘Happy Anniversary’ stamp on a banner punched out of the same green cardstock…
At the center of the doily stamp I have placed a large flower punched from gold cardstock with a rhinestone in the middle….
Hope you liked this card…

Post#157 You Are Pretty Darn Amazing Card

I realised I had a lot of butterfly stamps,so I took them all out of my stamps folder and quickly created a background using those stamps…
I stamped all the butterflies with Ranger Java Bean dye ink on white cardstock and coloured them in…..
For this card I used an orange card base and and extra layer/mat in yellow and then added the top layer….on the top layer I have used a strip of brown glitter cardstock on one side and also the die cut word you from the same glitter cardstock….this word die has been placed above the sentiment that has been stamped on a banner made from gold cardstock…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#154 For You Card

I haven’t used kraft cardstock for a couple of weeks now and I really wanted to create this particular design using both plain and printed kraft paper…
The plain kraft cardstock has been used for the card base….then there is a layer of a swirly print kraft paper….and the top layer is made from Vellum paper…on all four sides of this vellum paper I have used two of the stitched border diee to give it a bit of texture…
In the middle of the card I have placed an embossed tag die cut from cold cardstock…the tag has a die cut word ‘For You’ on it as well as a two gold heat embossed pansy flowers and two leaves…
The gold and lavender sequins not only decorate the card but they also hide the glue dots that have been used to attach  the vellum to the layer below it….

Hope you liked my card….

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….
