Power Poppy Succulents – Two Cards

I have quite a few succulents stamp sets now and I love every single one of them…today I’m sharing two cards that I have made using Sassy Succulents stamp set by Power Poppy…this set has a large cluster image which I used for my first card and a few potted plants images which I have used in the second one..

I first die cut the top panel from Kraft cardstock using a large cross stitch rectangle die and then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment as well as the succulents using white embossing powder…
I coloured in the images using some twisted citron and peeled paint Distress Oxide inks mixed with a bit of water…I really like the chalky effect these inks give…

I embellished the card with some Pretty Pink Post sequins called whimsical forest mix and also added a heart next to the sentiment which I have die cut from gold foil cardstock…

Now my second card ‘had’ to be a colourful one…ha ha..I started with a die cut watercolour cardstock panel and stamped the images and the sentiment using onyx black  Versafine ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder…and because I didn’t plan my card well,I had to mask all the images before creating the background…

I have used a twisted citron Distress Oxide ink to cover the base section and salty ocean ink to create the cloudy background…I then splattered some water for effect only on the clouds area…I stamped tiny triangles on the green section at the base on this panel…

I then used crayola markers and a water brush to colour in all the stamped images and once dry,I adhered this panel to a plain white card base…to embellish my card I have used a few small gold sequins…

Bird & Butterflies- Scrapbook Boutique August Challenge

As soon as I saw the moodboard for this month’s challenge at the Scrapbook Boutique blog,I went through all my stamps..didn’t find anything I liked at first…a weird umbrella stamp from ages ago,small or odd looking bird stamps and no shoes stamps at all…got quite a few ideas that didn’t work…but I kept going and here are the cards that I created for this challenge…


Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
For my first card I chose a light grey textured cardstock for a top folding card base…I stamped the big top stamp twice on a white panel using cool graphite dye ink and then layered it with a dark grey cardstock..I added some craft foam under the top panel before adhering it to the card base…

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped the large butterfly using squeezed lemonade Distress Ink..I also stamped another butterfly using Versamark ink on Vellum and heat embossed it using silver embossing powder..I cut both butterflies out,layered them and placed them on the card front…

To make sure that the punched out butterflies are the same colour as the main butterfly,I stamped a mirror stamp using the same ink onto a scrap piece of cardstock and the punched the butterflies…I adhered morning dew Nuvo drops as embellishments on these butterflies…

I stamped the sentiment on a light grey banner using the same grey ink as the front panel and adhered it to the card front using some craft foam…

I made this second card before the butterflies card and when I was putting it together,I made a bit of a mistake on it…had a mind blank moment so I set it aside till I could fix it and started on another card…I blame it on the flu that I’ve just been gifted by my elder daughter.. 😦

I first die cut a white top layer using large cross stitched rectangle die and stamped the bird image using buttered popcorn Ranger dye ink….I re-stamped it on my Mini Misti using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with a pearl embossing powder…

I masked the image and used a cloud stencil and Distress Inks to print the clouds all over the front panel..I used hickory smoke and weathered wood shades here..I also splaterred a bit of grey ink all over…

I stamped the sentiment on a white strip and layered it with a grey glitter cardstock…added some black craft foam underneath it before adhering it to the card front…I also stamped a few red hearts above the sentiment…

I had already fixed and re-stamped the sentiment two times and something or the other went wrong..and had glued this one onto the card when I saw a small red dot on it…it didn’t come off with the sand eraser so I just went ahead and added the rhinestones and finished my card…I think I will re-do the sentiment label once I’m feeling a bit better..

Thank you for stopping by my blog today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!

You Make Me Oh So Happy

Unless I’m a hundred percent sure that something is completely ruined and cannot be used in any other project,I will not throw it away…it does take a bit more time to figure out a way to incorporate it into a new project but I find this quite fun too….mostly…ha ha..!! 😉

In today’s card I have managed to salvage a Distress ink background panel which I had created for another card but due to a major stamp masking error I couldn’t use it…since there was a good section of that panel which wasn’t ruined, I decided to use for this card…the distress inks that were used for this panel are worn lipstick,salty ocean,twisted citron and picked raspberry…I die cut the panel using a cloud die and placed it on the white top panel of this card using a bit of craft foam…
I stamped,coloured in and cut out the little girl image and placed it on the card….the sentiment has been stamped using watermark ink and heat embossed using a purple embossing powder..and finally I have used a few silver sequins to embellish this card…
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card today…Have a happy and blessed day…!!

Hope Your Day Is Magical

“Always be Yourself,unless you can be a Unicorn.Then always be a Unicorn” I read this quote a while ago and loved it…I know they are mythical creatures but there is something so magical,mysterious and happy about them….don’t you think??
For today’s card I chose a berry blue coloured cardstock for the card…I die cut the top layer from watercolor paper using Avery Elle double pierced rectangle die….then using a stencil and a few shades of blue distress inks I created the background for this card…
The Unicorn image I have used is from a stamp by The Greeting Farm called Magical Day…I coloured it in with bright colours and cut it out before placing it on the top layer…
I stamped the sentiment top center and heat embossed it using a purple embossing powder…and finally to embellish this card I have used silver star sequins..
Thanks for visiting my blog today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!

Sending A Little Sunshine Your Way

I have made today’s card specifically for entering in the Scrapbook Boutique February 2017 Challenge…I had so much fun making a card for the December 2016 challenge and was waiting for the challenges to restart in this year..
The moodboard this time has a lot of beach/summer pics with lots of yellows and blues…and I really don’t have any stamps, images or dies for that theme so had to go through all my stamps and dies a few times to finally come up with this card….it would be a great card to send to cheer up a friend who is facing the harsh winter chill at the moment(while we have summers in Australia)…

The card base is plain white and the top layer has been cut to size from watercolour cardstock…I then used the puffy cloud border dies and placed them on the top layer and embossed with them so they look like waves…I have used Salty Ocean and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks to create the background on the top layer….
I stamped the sentiment on the top layer and heat embossed it using a copper coloured embossing powder…
On a separate piece of cardstock,I first stamped the seal image using Cool Graphite dye ink by Ranger and then re-stamped it using watermark ink and quickly heat embossed it using clear embossing powder…I also stamped the sun and cut it out as well….I placed the sun on the tip of the seal’s nose to look like its balancing a ball…
I’m glad you stopped by to take a look at my card today….you will find all the details of the challenge on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog…Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

Happy Valentine’s Day..!!

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.– Lao Tzu
My card for Valentines is a really cute one using a stamp set by Jane’s Doodles called Seamus…I just love the cute sheep images in this set…
I chose a vibrant orange cardstock for my card base and die cut watercolor paper using the cross stitch rectangle die to create the top layer…I then used distress inks to create a vibrant background for this card…the inks shades I have used are – picked raspberry,abandoned coral and mustard seed..
On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped and coloured in the two sheep images before cutting then out and placing them onto the card…
The sentiment has been heat embossed using red embossing powder and I have used white Nuvo crystal drops to embellish this card…

I made another quick card…and I have used metallic markers and a ruler to create the background…

The card base is made from gold cardstock and I have used black cardstock for the top layer….on the top layer,I created the pattern using some coloured metallic marker and then stamped hearts all over which I heat embossed with gold embossing powder…I have also splattered a bit of gold paint on it…

I then die cut a large heart from gold foil cardstock and then used the die cut inlay technique by Jennifer McGuire to add the sentiment on the gold heart…before adhering the heart to the card front,I added a bit of gold string under it…

You & Me Card

Doesn’t it feel great when you plan out a project and it turns out exactly as you had planned..??It happens to a lot of crafters but my projects don’t necessarily follow my plans…at all..ha ha…but this one surprisingly did…
I started with a silver cardstock base and cut watercolour paper to size before colouring it in with Peacock Feather distress ink…the edges are a bit darker than the center but the photo doesn’t show it that well…
I then used silver foil cardstock to die cut a fancy flourish and placed it on the top layer…then I die cut two hearts from vellum and coloured them in with a light marker and used a white gelly roll pen to create a stitched effect on the edges and placed them above the flourish…
On a silver banner,I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with red embossing powder before placing it above the two vellum hearts…
Finally I decorated the card with small hearts that were die cut from red glitter cardstock using the confetti die by Mama Elephant…
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card….Have a lovely & blessed day ahead…!!
