Leafy Birthday Cards

I am sharing two cards that I have made with the Altenew Leaf Canopy stamp and die set….In my first card I have tried out a light wash of the Altenew watercolours for the background and for my second card, I have used the fadeout inkpad by ink on 3 to try out a no line colouring effect…need to practice a bit more with this inkpad but I think it’s a good start…

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…!!

First I made an anniversary card using the hedgehog stamp….I stamped and coloured in the images using alcohol markers and die cut using the coordinating dies…on the plain white front panel I added a cloudy background using the MFT mini cloud edges stencil and salty ocean Oxide ink….I then die cut a circle in the front and added the embossed stitched lines as well using the Crafti Potential die set…
I stamped the sentiment on the front panel using Avery Elle simple sentiments stamp set then adhered the hedgehogs behind the circle window and added a glitter cardstock behind it…I added a couple of die cut hearts and adhered the front panel to a plain white card base…

Now my third card is a simple thank you card…I used the MFT english brick wall stencil and fired brick Oxide ink to print the pattern on the front panel and then die cut a rectangle window…I also stamped a border stamp at the top of the panel…I added the little cat and dog inside the window and added some blue glitter cardstock behind them…I then stamped the sentiment )Avery Elle- Many Thanks stamp set) and adhered the front panel to the card base…to embellish this card I have added a few silver confetti sequins…

Love Is In The Air – Two Valentine’s Day Cards

With Valentine’s Day just a couple of days from now, love is definitely in the air…and today I am sharing two cute cards that I made for Valentine’s Day..

For both my cards I created a similar background using Distress Inks and grassy edges stencil and mini cloud stencils by MFT….
I stamped the pig and cow  from Avery Elle Hogs and Kisses stamp set on a separate piece of white cardstock and coloured them in using my alcohol markers…I stamped a sentiment on the large heart and covered those with Nuvo Glaze for a shiny effect…
I stamped one more sentiment directly on the background panel….this sentiment is from Avery Elle Love Notes stamp set…I adhered the pig and cow to the card front and finally I stamped a couple of tiny red hearts and my cards were ready…

True Blue Aussie Santa!

If you didn’t know already, at Christmas we have summers in Australia…so we get the hot sun instead of snow during the festive season…so when I saw the Santa In The Sun stamp set from Clearly Besotted Stamps, I knew it would be perfect for some Aussie style chrissy cards…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I created the backgrounds for my cards using Distress Inks and MFT stencils – making waves and grassy edges…I adhered strips of green and red glitter cardstock on one side of each panel…

I stamped all the fun Santa images on a separate piece of white cardstock and coloured them in using alcohol markers and then die cut them using the coordinating dies…

I adhered the front panels the white card bases and then adhered the die cut images using some adhesive foam squares…on a couple of cards I also added a die cut sun..

I stamped the sentiments on the front panel using Versafine onyx black ink…two of the sentiments are from a Stamp-it stamp set and one from a Mama Elephant set…

To embellish my cards I have used a few clear confetti sequins as the cards also get lots of sparkle from the red and green glitter cardstock…

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..!!

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..

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..

Wreath Turnabout – 2 Cards

I have tried out a couple of turnabout stamps for creating easy and wonderful backgrounds for my cards,but this new wreath turnabout set(Concord & 9th) has a much smaller pattern and there are two of them in the set…my first thought was to create something with copper embossing and that’s what I did for one of my cards…while on the other card I have simply used various Oxide inks to stamp the pattern…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by stamping one of the wreaths on black cardstock with some watermark ink and then heat embossing it with copper embossing powder….it has to be rotated 90 degrees after each stamping a total of four times to get this result…I also stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and a small heart in the middle of the wreath…
On the front of a plain black card base,I adhered a copper coloured paper cut to the same size as the card front..I cut the embossed black panel to the size required and added some black craft foam underneath then adhered it to the card front and my card was ready…

For my second card I picked out these shades of Distress Oxide inks to stamp the other wreath in the stamp set – twisted citron, cracked pistachio, peacock feather and evergreen bough…I then added some dots and the sentiment label stamped with aged mahogany…
I didn’t want to add any other colour to my card so I covered the front of the card base with aged mahogany before die cutting the stamped front panel and adhering it to the card base…

These wreath stamps are quite beautiful and versatile…I do hope I can remember to use them to create a few Christmas cards later this year..

MFT 2018 Creative Olympics – My Entries for Event 2,3 & 4

Hello…today I’m sharing mostly pictures and a couple of videos of the cards I have made as my entry for the MFT Creative Olympics…at one point I really thought I won’t be able to complete my projects for all 4 events but thankfully I managed to cross the finish line…

Event #2 – Freestyle

The only rule for this event was to have a winter theme…I chose to make a spinner card using the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set with the Snowfall Background die and the Downhill Slope die….For the background I have used Distress Inks – wilted violet,blueprint sketch,chipped sapphire and black soot..

Event #3 – Crafty Biathlon

In the second event,we had to combine one technique from each of the two columns in the list provided and create a card…I chose to do dry embossing as well as die cut inlay from the first column and create a shaker card..I have used the Stitched Circle Stax to create the olympic rings and Wild Greenery die to dry emboss the top layer and the layer which is the shaker background…on the Backgrounds I have used vintage photo and lucky clover Oxide Inks…I have filled the shaker with a lot of star
I have also used the cute images from Fierce Friends stamp set and placed them behind the Olympic rings…I stamped the sentiment on a die cut label and added some clear sequins to embellish it..

In this 4th and last event,we had to create a card from start to finish within 20 mins…so I knew I was going to use a set with matching dies and colour in using water soluble colours…I used the English Brick Wall stencil and hickory smoke Oxide Ink to create the background on my front panel..
I have used the images from Fancy Flowers stamp set and coloured them in pretty quickly using shaded lilac,picked raspberry and evergreen bough Oxide inks..I die cut them using the coordinating dies(this took up most of my time)..I adhered these die cuts at the bottom of the front panel and cut off the excess…I have also used a stitched rectangle die to emboss an edge on the panel as well…finally I used All About You stamp set and stamped the sentiment on the card front using wilted violet Oxide Ink and added a few clear Nuvo drops to embellish it..
