Scrapbook Boutique March 2017 Challenge

So it’s time again for the Scrapbook Boutique monthly challenge on their blog…did I tell you,I won their February challenge…??Well,I did and am still doing my happy dance…ha ha..Thank you so much Scrapbook Boutique 🙂

Their Design Team is fantastic and I felt quite inspired by all the creations shared by them….I am really enjoying these challenges and the moodboard for this month’s challenge is a colourful one and here’s my creation inspired by it…
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade Card by Pri

I chose a black card base and a black top layer as well….using some scrap coloured cardstock,I cut them into 1″ strips and then cut diagonally to make the rays…after adhering these strips onto the top layer I ran it through my Cuttlebug using the pierced rectangle die..I think it’s the easiest way to neatly cut off the excess cardstock as well as giving the top layer a good finished look…

On a piece of white cardstock,I stamped,coloured in and cut out the image of the little Prince on a horse and placed it on a die cut silver circle…I have used craft foam under this circle before placing it on the card…I die cut a larger silver circle frame and placed it around the circle an cut off the part that didn’t fit on the top layer….

I stamped the sentiment on a silver banner and placed it on the card…and to embellish the card I punched a few hearts from red glitter cardstock and adhered them to the card…

Thank you for stopping by my blog today…Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

Bright Peonies Thank You Card

I know I’m not very good with paints,but that doesn’t stop me…and I keep going coz I think that’s the only way I can get a bit better…so today I’m sharing a card that I have made using Peerless watercolors….
The card base is plain pink and the top layer has been cut to size using Ranger watercolor paper….on the top layer,I stamped a few peonies using the Altenew peony scroll stamp set using Versamark ink and heat embossed them using a gold embossing powder…I then coloured in the flowers and the background using Peerless watercolors…
Once dry,I placed a thank you word die on the top layer and ran it through my Cuttlebug and carefully removed the die cut word….I used a piece of gold foil cardstock to die cut the same word and then inlaid the gold one on the top layer…
I just punched a couple of hearts from the same gold foil cardstock and used them to embellish the card…
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card…Have a very blessed day today…!!

Paris Cityscape Card

After making a hello card using the Sydney cityscape stamp a few days back,I kept my stamp set on my desk so I could think of something similar(yet different)for another card…I finally chose the Paris cityscape stamp from the set to make this card…

The card base is a very light grey and I have used watercolour paper for the top layer….to create the background I have used four different distress inks…I wanted to give it the effect of the sky after the  sun has set(I tried to!!)…

I then stamped the Paris stamp with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder…I did the same for the sentiment and the stars stamps…and finally,I punched two hearts from red glitter cardstock and placed them above the sentiment…

Love And Adore You Card

When simple works…there is no need for complicated….and with that thought I started today’s card….there are no special techniques I have followed here…kept things plain and simple…
The card base is plain white and then I have an orange mat and a black top layer…I then stamped the Gorjuss mini stamp on vellum paper and coloured it in which I later attached to the back of a white rectangular die cut frame…
I also die cut the words ‘love & adore you’ from orange foil cardstock and adhered them on one side of the card and the frame on the other…
To decorate the card,I simply punched out a few hearts from orange foil cardstock and placed them around the image…and my simple card was ready…
Hope you liked it…

Post#171 Hearts Embossed Background card

I quite like the card that I’m sharing with you today….It has a few layers and things on it but it’s not too full of stuff…
The base is made from plain dark pink cardstock…..and the top layer is plain white which has been embossed with love hearts embossing folder and then I wrapped around a silver string on it before attaching it to the card base…
I then added a few layers…the first one is a large stitched circle die cut from the same pink cardstock as the card base…the second one is a smaller stitched circle die cut from silver foil cardstock…Then I die cut a red heart and placed the die cut XOXO on it along with a couple of punched hearts…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#170 – Rainbow Hearts on Kraft Card

Today I’m sharing a simple card with a very sweet message…. 
The card base and top layer are made from Kraft cardstock…I have rounded only two sides of the card and top layer…on one side of the top layer I have attached a wide strip of Vellum Paper and another in red glitter cardstock above it…..on both of these I have used a heart border punch….
The sentiment has been stamped at the top right of the card using white pigment ink….and I punched two different sizes of hearts from coloured paper(prepared using peerless watercolors)….each heart has a tiny red rhinestone on it as well…
I hope you liked this card as much as I do…

Post#169 – You+Me Card

I had a lot of fun planning and making this card….while I was looking through my stamps for something for Valentines Day,I came across these stamps with symbols of + and = and this became the main focus of my card….
It’s a 5″ square white card base with a plain bright red mat….the top layer is white and I have used a hearts mask and light pink ink to create a background….I then stamped the words ‘you’ and ‘me’ with red dye ink…..and I have gold heat embossed for the + = and ‘forever’ word stamps…
At the base of the top layer,I have added a strip each of gold glitter cardstock and pink glitter cardstock…at the top i have only used a gold glitter strip…I also punched a red heart  and placed it above the word ‘forever’…..
Hope you liked this card…

Post#110 Love Heart Theme Water Stamped Card

I saw these gorgeous cards by Jennifer McGuire and almost immediately sat down to make one myself….so I made this card and clicked a quick picture of it with my mobile and emailed it to Jennifer…and I’m happy to report that she liked this card….yay…  🙂  🙂
Here is the link to the tutorial – Stamping With Water by Jennifer Mcguire
The technique is very simple and is called stamping with water…you use distress ink to cover the paper and then lightly spritz your stamp with water and stamp it…the reaction of the distress ink with the water creates this effect..I used a large word ‘Love’ rubber stamp for this card….and attached this section to the white card base then rounded the corners…
I added two strips of black and glitter like Jennifer….and then under the word love I added the die cut word you….the top die cut is from silver glitter paper and there are two of the same die cuts in red…when gluing these together I slightly moved the top glitter layer so that the red is visible as well…
To finish the card I punched out three small red hearts and adhered them to the card…
Hope yo like this card as much as I do…

Post#94 With Love Balloon Tag

Today I’m sharing a simple tag….I chose a blue cardstock for the  base and punched at the top using a tag topper punch and rounded the corners of the base…
And in an attempt to try Twinkling H2O watercolors again, I coloured a bit of white cardstock using these watercolours and die cut a balloon and ‘with love’ word…the die cuts shimmer beautifully…I embossed the balloon die cut and added a couple of punched hearts in red and gold…and to finish the tag I added bright red and yellow ribbons…
I 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…

Post#55 Red and Gold Card

I forgot that I had quite a few of the stamping gear cogs,wheels and stamps nicely stored in a container at the very back of my craft cupboard….and once I got those out, I had a few ideas going in my head…the first one was this red and gold card that I’m sharing with you today…


On the gold card base I added a cream top layer on which I stamped using the stamping gear with red ink and then gold pigment ink(not visible nicely in the photo somehow)….In the center I stamped and punched a flower with sentiment and adhered it using adhesive foam squares…I also added a couple of hearts punched from gold paper to finish the card…

Hope you liked it.

Post#44 Shaker Gift Tag

Shaker cards and tags are so beautiful and I have tried making a few for Christmas last year…..but they were so bulky and thick due to all the craft foam added to create the shaker window, so i didn’t try making them again…till now….
The very amazing Jennifer McGuire has figured out a way to make these cards the easy way using  plastic pockets and the WRMK fuse tool…Here’s the link for her Window Shaker Card..Jump to 09:05 if you only like to see how she uses the fuse tool to create a pocket…

I used the largest eyelet squares die to create the tag base….then I created a shaker pocket separately using a plastic sleeve and WRMK fuse tool….I filled the pocket with some sequins and hearts and attached it to the square frame die cut from printed paper…before attaching this to the tag base,I added the die cut word ‘love’ to the base so that it shows through the clear shaker window…

A couple of hearts punched from red cardstock and a ribbon was added to finish the tag…
I had a lot of fun making this tag…Hope you liked it…

Post#24 Sending Warm Fuzzies

It’s winters here in Australia and these last few weeks(mid July) have been really cold in the eastern and southern states….Lots of rain,wind and even snow at places…eagerly waiting for spring now….
This card was made on one of those very chilly days…
I used warm colours for the card base and top layer…and punched out hearts in various sizes out of left over scrap paper….then I added a bit of adhesive printed paper tape with the sentiment stamped on top…
I hope you liked this card.
