Lawn Fawn Magic Picture Changer Card

I have finally tried out the Lawn Fawn magic picture changer die to create my very first picture changer card…It was quite easy to understand and assemble and probably the one main thing you need to make sure you do right is to stamp the images on the right part…

Once my picture changer was stamped, coloured in, die cut and assembled I added a white die cut frame on the front which is an add-on die for the magic picture changer…I then adhered this section onto a card base on which I have used one of the sheets from the Really  Rainbow paper pack..

I thought a lot about whether to add any embellishments on this card and finally decided to leave it as is….

Wishing You Happiness – Stamped Shaker Card

A couple of weeks ago I saw a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire where she made many adorable stamped shaker cards…you do need stamps with a coordinating die for this technique and it was quite a simple and easy process…I think I’ll be making a few more of these soon!!

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I stamped and gold heat embossed a large feather die on a white panel from Earth Has Music stamp set by Simon Says Stamp and coloured it in using Zig markers..I added a piece of white foam negative section which I die cut using the coordinating die….I added some gems and closed the shaker section using a piece of acetate…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I used the coordinating die again to die cut on the front panel and adhered the feather shaker piece underneath…there are lots of ways to create/assemble this shaker card but this is just how I did this one…I added a bit of Distress Inks on the edges of the front panel and adhered a stamped sentiment strip as well as some gold confetti sequins to embellish my card…
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog….Hope you will have a cheerful and blessed day today..Happy crafting!!

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

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… 

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a separate piece of cardstock,  stamped and coloured in the image using alcohol markers then cut cut it out and placed on my card front using some adhesive craft foam…the sentiment has been stamped on a small white banner and to embellish my card I have added a few clear confetti sequins..

Diwali Cards Using Altenew Candle Light Stamp Set

Today I’m sharing 3 Diwali cards….Diwali is on the 7th of November this year and if you didn’t know already, it is the biggest Hindu festival – also known as the festival of lights…and I was so happy when Altenew came up with the most versatile stamp set called Candle Light which has images of some layering candles, tealights and an earthen lamp as well as some really wonderful sentiments..I had been waiting for a set like this for quite sometime now..

For all my cards, I stamped the layering stamp for the lamp and the flame on a piece of white cardstock using Altenew crisp inks…for the lamp I have used mocha, sand dunes, rocky shore, and limestone shade and for the flames I have used citrus burst, fresh lemon and autumn blaze….I have die cut these with the coordinating dies and in a couple of the die cuts had to trim off a small section for the flame…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

My first card was inspired by Jennfer Rzasa and I kept is fairly simple as I wanted to see if these lamps would look okay with the flame on one side…and I think it does…well, I started by creating the front panel of my card by first stamping the small mandala pattern using wild honey oxide ink and heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder…I then applied various Distress Inks on this panel – squeezed lemonade, mustard seed and dried marigold…I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and then adhered this panel to the card base…I added the die cut lamp and embellished my card with some plain gold confetti sequins..

For my second card, I have used a square stencil to create the focal point in the background..I used the following Distress inks for that – blueprint sketch, salty ocean and tumbled glass…I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment before adhering the front panel to the card base…I used adhesive foam squared to attach the lamp and then added a few tiny gold star sequins as embellishments..

Now my third card wasn’t planned but it is my favourite…and it looks much better than it does in the pictures…I dry embossed a frosted gold cardstock piece using a paisley embossing folder and the adhered it to a plain white card base…then I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment on an orange panel and adhered it to the card front and then adhered the lamp die cut…and finally to decorate this card I have used a few orange rhinestones.. 
Here are a few more pictures of my cards…

Lawn Fawn Birthday Fairies

I was in the mood to create a bright and cheerful card and thought these cute Lawn Fawn fairies would be just perfect for it…I also used the woodgrain background die for the background panel, on which I applied some oxide inks for a magical look..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by die cutting the front panel from white cardstock and then applied the following Distress oxide inks on it – wilted violet, shaded lilac and picked raspberry…I adhered this panel to a plain white card base and set it aside until I had all the other elements ready…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a separate piece of  bristol smooth cardstock, I stamped all the images using Versafine black ink and the heat embossed them all using some clear embossing powder…I coloured these images using the Zig markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies…
I adhered all the images using some adhesive foam and also added a stamped sentiment strip on my card…to embellish my card I have simply added some tiny gold star sequins..

From All Of Us

I really loved the layering stamp sets by Clearly Besotted I have used so far, so I got another one…this one is called Pure Poppies…very easy to layer and such great results as well…I also used a rectangle die to add a bit of texture and pattern to the background…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I started by die cutting the black cardstock for the background panel and adhered it to the card base….I then added a smaller stitched rectangle to the card front which has been die cut from gold glitter cardstock …

On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped the poppy and leaf images and die cut them using the coordinating dies…I have used the following shades of Altenew crisp inks for stamping the flowers- heartbeat, rouge &coral bliss and for the leaves I have used just green and parrot….

I adhered these pieces to the card and then white heat embossed the sentiment on a small black die cut label and used some adhesive foam to add a bit of dimension…and finally I added a few white Nuvo drops to embellish my card..

Huge Birthday Wishes

I’m sharing a cute card today which was very quick to make as well…I have used the MFT grassy edges stencil in this card and I love how it adds depth to the card with actually adding all the layers…which means that it is very very post friendly.. 🙂
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by adding the grassy edges on a plain white front panel… I haved used various Distress inks with the stencil…I then used a large stitched rectangle die to emboss a border around the panel and then adhered this panel to a plain white card base….
Next, I stamped the giraffe, elephant and little bird images on a separate piece of cardstock and coloured them in using my Zig pens…once dry, I die cut them and adhered them to my card front using some adhesive foam underneath…I also applied some Nuvo glaze on these die cuts for a bit of shine..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Finally, I stamped the sentiment using black ink and added a few jewels to embellish my card..

Congratulations Card

One of my top favorite card maker/ blogger is Virginia Lu…..I love her card making style and all her creations so much…and for today’s card I have been highly inspired by Virginia…

I started by creating the front panel on watercolour cardstock….I applied some Distress Inks on the stamps and used a mister spray to spray some water mixed with a bit of perfect pearls and then stamped onto the paper….this gives such a wonderful watercolour look with a wonderful pearly shine as well…once dry, I adhered this panel to a plain white card base…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I then die cut some fine rectangle frames from black glitter cardstock and adhered then on the front center of my card…then, on a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped the sentiment and decided to split it into two labels…I inked the edges and adhered these label using some craft foam…
To embellish my card I have used some sparkling clear sequins and applied some Nuvo glaze on the sentiment labels..

Just For You

I’m sharing a clean and simple card today….usually I get stressed out with these kind of cards as I end up with the clean area of my card left ‘not so clean’…but I was quite happy this one stayed clean or else I would have had to go all out with embellishments like I usually do…ha ha..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I started by stamping the images on watercolour cardstock using some Versafine black ink and then heat embossing them with a clear embossing powder…I then used Zig clean colour markers and a water brush to colour in these images…the clear embossing helped as it stopped the colour bleeding out of the lines and stay contained inside the images…
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Once dry, I adhered this panel to a plain white card base and added a stamped sentiment label with some adhesive foam…and finally, to embellish my card I have added some Nuvo jewel drops…

Many Thanks

I had started today’s card with an intention to create a bit of depth on my stamped panel simply by adding 2nd generation stamping as I have seen Jennifer McGuire do in many of her cards and tutorials…but as you can see, it didn’t work out for me…but I still did manage to create a lovely card in the end…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I stamped the flowers and leaves on a plain white front panel using various pink, purple and green shades of Altenew crisp dye inks…for those who don’t know what 2nd generation stamping is – simply put, it is when you stamp again immediately after you have stamped…since you don’t reink the stamp, you get a lighter version of the image…this way you are able to add depth and/or dimension to your images without using too many shades of inks…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I stamped the large sentiment using black ink and then adhered this panel to a plain white card base….
then on a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped a few extra leaves and flowers using the same shade of inks and cut them out and placed them just below the sentiment…I  did use some adhesive foam underneath them to add the much needed dimension…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

To embellish my card I have added a lot of pink and purple shiny jewels in various sizes…
I’m glad you stopped by to take a look at my card….Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

The theme for challenge #112 at Time Out Challenges is ‘warm’…and I think viewing the NYE fireworks to ring in the new year gives us a nice warm and happy feeling…and a hope of great things in the coming year…we have always gone out to view the fireworks and this last time we took the dog along too…he didn’t care about the fireworks but loved being with us..!!

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
So I have created this warm wishes fireworks card for the ‘warm’ theme of the challenge…
I started by applying some Distress Inks on a white watercolour cardstock panel to create the night sky…I have used squeezed lemonade, stormy sky, chipped sapphire, weathered wood and black soot shades here…
Next, I started stamping the fireworks stamps – just a few at a time – with watermark ink and heat embossed the images using various shades of metallic embossing powders like gold, silver, platinum, copper, etc…I die cut this panel to size using a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a plain white card base..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped and coloured in the little penguin and cut it out…I stamped the sentiment on a white banner and added a gold foil banner layer behind it before adhering it to the card using adhesive foam squares…I adhered the penguin on and above the sentiment label…and to embellish my card I have used various confetti and star sequins…

Alcohol Ink Background Card

I seem to get carried away while playing with Alcohol inks and keep forgetting not to cover the whole panel with the ink so there is some blank space on the panel…it was very hard to come up with a design for this background so I decided to keep it simple and just added a large gold die cut and and a heat embossed sentiment…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

For the front panel I have cut Yupo paper to size and added the alcohol inks and a gold mixative as well….once dry, I used a large cross stitch rectangle die to add the detail and adhered it to a plain white card base…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I then die cut the large medallion from gold foil card stock and twice from white cardstock and layered them before adhering to the card front…I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using gold embossing powder and then layered it with a strip of red cardstock before adhering it on top of the medallion…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

And last but not the least, I have added a few jewels in various sizes to embellish my card…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

This is the moodboard for this month’s challenge and as you can see, I chose to incorporate the black and white polka dot and the mushrooms on my card…
Once my dotty background was ready and adhered to a plain white card base, I stamped the fairy and mushroom images onto a piece of white cardstock and coloured them in…I cut them out and placed them on the card front…
