Pretty Pansies For Altenew October 2017 Inspiration Challenge

For this month’s Altenew inspiration challenge,there were three soft colours and a beautiful card by Lydia Evans to get inspired by…I am usually quite reluctant to use light colours so this was actually quite a challenge for me…

Here is the beautiful inspiration card and colours…

I wanted my card to be slightly larger than my usual A2 size to accommodate the design properly so I created a card base that was 4&1/4″ x 6″….I then created the front panel from watercolour cardstock on which I applied water first then randomly added Gansai Tambi watercolours in green,light pink and gold shades…once dry,I cut it to size and adhered it to my card front…

On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped the Altenew Pretty Pansies layering stamp using Altenew crisp dye inks…for the flowers I have used coral berry,cotton candy and peach perfect and gold heat embossed the top layers and for the leaves I used parrot,bamboo and forest glades shades and decided not to add gold heat embossing on them…I cut these flowers and leaves out with my scissors as I didn’t want a white border around them…
I then used the coordinating dies and die cut the flowers and leaves from gold foil cardstock which I have embossed using the Darice polka dot embossing folder…and now that all the elements of my card were ready,I adhered them to my card front using glue and adhesive foam squares in various thickness to add some interest and depth…

For the sentiment,I first used a mirror stamp to create a solid colour base for the labels..I used cotton candy and peach perfect here and heat embossed the sentiment on the top layer…and finally I added a few gold Nuvo drops to embellish my card…

Hydrangeas Thanks Card – Altenew July 2017 Inspiration Challenge

Today I’m sharing the second card that I created for the Altenew Inspiration Challenge….I have also tried to get a better picture of the stencil embossed grid background…it looks beautiful but I was unable to click a picture which shows it clearly…

I started with a plain white cardstock same size as the card front and used the Altenew grid stencil and ruby red ink for the background…I created an ombre effect by using less ink on some areas and more on some…keeping the stencil in place,I embossed the top layer and then adhered it to the card front…

On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the layered Hydrangeas and leaves…I used frosty pink,forest glades and jet black shades here…in one of the Hydrangeas I kept the background white and only stamped the layering detail section in pink…I cut these elements out and placed them on the card…

I stamped the sentiment on a die cut vellum label and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder…I coloured in the back of this label using ruby red ink and then adhered it to a larger glitter gold label…I placed the sentiment above the flowers…

To embellish my card I have used die cut sequins from the same glitter gold cardstock as the sentiment label…I have also used craft foam under a few elements to add a bit of depth..

Katzelkraft Dogs Rubber Stamps – Thank You

Once my background was ready,today’s card came together pretty quickly…that’s what I liked about using large images and sentiments on my card…so this is the third card that I have made using Katzelkraft dogs stamp set…


Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I have used a plain white card base for this card and die cut the top layer using watercolour cardstock using large cross stitched rectangle die…I then used distress inks to create the background..making sure to add the blue colour in the section where I wanted to place the dog so that the image stands out..I have used blueprint sketch,old paper and ground espresso shades here…

Then using Versamark ink,I stamped the large thank you sentiment as well as a few stars and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder…the embossing wasn’t showing that well so I decided to trace around it using a white gel pen and then adhered this top layer to the card front…
On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped the dog image and coloured it in…while cutting the image,I left a little white border around it so I don’t have the same problem as I did with the sentiment…

I have three more cards to share that I made using this stamp set…hope you will come back to check those out as well…thank you for stopping by today…

Gold Embossed Congratulations Card

One of my crafty resolutions for this year is to practice and get better at heat embossing…so every now and then I keep reminding myself about it…and today I patiently sat down to create this card which not only has heat embossing but also a lot of masking as you can see that quite a few of the images are overlapped…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I started with a watercolour cardstock panel and created a few masks for the flowers that were overlapping on my design layout…I then did my stamping and heat embossed the flower outline images using gold embossing powder…I also embossed a few flowers on vellum paper and coloured them pink and kept them aside to use later…
I then cut this design into two pieces and adhered a pink strip of gold embossed sentiment in the middle…to get this panel to for the card front,I simply ran it through my Cuttlebug using a stitched rectangle die..
Finally I used some Distress inks to watercolour the white areas above and below the embossed flowers…I used mermaid lagoon,peacock feather and cracked pistachio Distress ink shades mixed with a bit of water…once dry,I adhered this panel to the front of a plain white card and adhered the pink vellum flowers as well..

I will be entering this card in the latest Time Out Challenge #86…the theme of this challenge is celebrations and I thought that a congratulations card would be great for this theme…I’m still finding out the details of the challenges but I think there is a new challenge every two weeks and if you’re interested in taking part,here’s the link to their blog – Time Out Challenges

Black & Gold Anniversary Card

Today I’m sharing an anniversary card that I had been wanting to try for quite sometime…the idea had been formed in my head (and my ideas notepad) long ago and I have finally tried it out…

The card base and top layer of this card is made from black cardstock and I have painted stripes on the top layer using a wide paintbrush and metallic gold paint…I then stamped the sentiment on this panel using Versamark ink and gold embossing powder…
On a separate piece of black cardstock,I stamped three flowers from one of my favourite stamp sets – Tim Holtz Flower Garden and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder as well…I then adhered them to the card front,making sure to used some craft foam under the flower on top for a bit of dimension…I had already added some gold string behind the flowers before I adhered them onto the card…
I used my metallic marker to colour a few white pearls and used them to embellish the card…

Today is also my parents wedding anniversary and I made a similar card for them using the same idea..I will only share a little peek of the card I made for them just in case they haven’t received my card yet…I used the Altenew Garden Hydrangeas stamp set for this card…

Scrapbook Boutique MAY Challenge – Two Cards

While I struggled with the last challenge which had pastel colours in the moodboard,for this month’s challenge at Scrapbook Boutique Blog I had a couple of ideas as soon as I looked at the board….I made two cards and decided to share them both..
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

For my first card I chose a plain white card base and watercolour paper top layer…I first coloured in the whole background with light pink water colour and gave it a bit of ombre effect(which you can’t really see in the picture)..once dry,I repeat stamped the snowing stamp using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder…I also smudged some ink on all sides of the top layer and heat embossed that with gold embossing powder as well…

On a separate piece of watercolour paper,I stamped the freesias using pink dye ink and then again with Versamark ink and heat embossed them using clear embossing powder…my Misti came in super handy for this…I coloured in the flowers using Peerless watercolours and cut them out and placed them on the card…

I stamped the sentiment on a small white label and layered it with a gold label and die cut some sequins to embellish this card…I also used my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to make the flowers glitter and shine..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

For my second card I chose a white base as well and die cut watercolour cardstock for the top layer using stitched rectangle die and then stamped the fairy stamp on it….I masked the fairy and then created another paper mask using one of my border dies and masked the top section of the card…

I used raspberry sorbet and spun sugar Distress Inks to cover the unmasked section and then removed all the masks…using watercolour pencils and my blender pen,I coloured in just a few sections of the stamped image…

I stamped the sentiment and punched a few small butterflies using gold foil cardstock to embellish the card…

Here’s a close up shot of my cards….I love this pink white and gold combination…

Magical Adventure

Every time I make a card like the one I’m sharing today,I am reminded of my childhood when we used a lot of imagination rather than technology and had a grand time playing with our friends…making up stories and playacting them…we could be anything we wanted as long as we could imagine it…I do hope little kids still love  reading or listening to fairy tales and such just like we did…


I chose a light yellow card base for today’s card and a watercolour cardstock top layer cut to the same size as the card front…I then sponged in some distress inks to create the background…I have used the following shades – tea dye,iced spruce and bundled sage…I sprinkled some water on this watercolour panel and quickly dried it using my heat gun…

I then stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder…I stamped a lot of stars and heat embossed them in gold as well…
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

At the bottom of this panel I placed two scalloped die cut borders from white cardstock and sponged some Distress Inks on them..I have used twisted citron,mowed lawn and squeezed lemonade …I then stamped the knight,the castle and the dragon on a separate piece of cardstock,coloured them in and cut them out and placed them on the card and my card was ready…

Here is a close up view of my card…

Wishing You A Happy Easter

Happy Easter Everyone….I hope your Easter is filled with hope,peace and brightness…!!

Today I’m sharing another Easter card that I have made using the MFT Somebunny stamp set…I chose a textured light yellow cardstock to create the card base and a plain white top layer…I masked the top layer at an angle and used black ink to stamp the little chick and flower repeatedly in the unmasked section…after removing the mask,I stamped the sentiment using watermark ink and then heat embossing it with gold embossing powder…
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the bunny,the carrot and a little chick and coloured it in…after cutting them out,I applied some glossy accents on them before adhering them to the card…
You can see the gold embossing a bit better in this close up shot….

I didn’t want to add any embellishment to this card so decided to colour in one of the chick that I stamped for the background….luckily it was stamped straight.. 🙂

Pop-up Hydrangeas – Birthday Card For Me

I have chosen a few of my favorite things to create a card that I’m sharing with you on my birthday today….other than Carnations,Hydrangeas are my favorite flowers so I chose the Altenew Garden Hydrangeas stamp set for today’s card…

Distress inks are another favorite of mine so I made a colourful background using them…I also like using gold and silver so I have used both…and since I love giving surprises and what better than a pop up card for that…!!
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade Card by Pri

The card base is plain white 4″x 7 and has a slightly smaller insert for the pop- up section…to create the simple front of the card, I first splattered some metallic gold paint and let it dry…I then die cut the word ‘wishes’ from silver foil cardstock and stamped the word ‘birthday’ on a strip of gold foil cardstock…I have also added a few pink enamel dots as embellishments..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade Card by Pri

I then started on the pop-up insert section…first I sponged in lots of Distress Inks to create the bright background…I have used the following shades – evergreen bough,twisted citron,mowed lawn,salty ocean,blueprint sketch and peacock feather…I then used a pop up die to create the pop up base and splattered some gold paint…I also stamped the sentiment on one corner using black ink…
On two separate pieces of watercolor paper,I simply covered them with twinkling H2O watercolour paint…once dry,I stamped the Hydrangea outlines using watermark ink and heat embossed them using silver embossing powder…since this is a layering stamp set,I stamped one of the layers with watermark ink again and heat embossed that with gold embossing powder…I did the same for the leaves before cutting out all these elements and adhering them onto the 3 pop up sections on the card insert….

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…!!

Wonderful Magical Birthday Wishes

Most traditional Christmas stamp sets can only be used once a year but these days there is a lot of choice and some stamp companies have such greats sets which can be used for other occasions as well…so for my card today I have re-purposed the Lawn Fawn Frosty Fairies stamp set and made a birthday card using it…

For the card base I have used a textured indigo coloured cardstock and die cut the top layer from watercolour paper using a pierced rectangle die…then using distress inks,I created a light background…I have used Shaded Lilac,Hickory Smoke and Spun Sugar Distress Inks…
I then stamped the berry branches with grey dye ink and coloured them in using Prismacolor pencils and also stamped the sentiment with Versamark watermark ink and heat embossed it using a gold embossing powder…
I stamped the fairy images on a separate piece of cardstock ,coloured them in and cut them out before placing them on the card…I have also used glossy accents on the fairy images…
