Two Quick Cards – Birthday & Friendship

There isn’t anything common between the two cards I’m sharing today except that they were both pretty quick to make…every now and then I do like to make simple and quick cards like these ones…the first one is a funny cat birthday card – hilarious actually, that cat has a priceless expression on it’s face don’t you think?….and for my second card I tried out the texture paste again…

I started my first card by die cutting the front panel and then stamped and clear heat embossed the cat, mouse as well as the sentiment…I then coloured in the images using Zig markers and a water brush…once dry, I  sponged some chipped sapphire Distress ink on all edges of this panel and splattered some water for effect…
I adhered this panel to a plain white card base and added some jewels to embellish it..

For my second card, I first sponged squeezed lemonade Distress Oxide ink on the front panel and splattered some water for effect….I then used a stencil and some Distress texture paste to add the pattern only on the base of this panel and set it aside to dry…

Next, I stamped the sentiment on the front panel and then added a frame die cut from a light green glitter cardstock…I adhered this panel to a plain white card base and then added some tiny green sequins and black Nuvo drops to embellish it…

XOXO – Altenew Folksy Florals

Today I’m sharing a card with beautiful flowers in soft colours….or at least softer colours than the bright ones I usually go for..I was very conscious of my colour choices for this one and kept the stencilled background quite light as well….

I created the background using Altenew grid stencil and cotton candy dye ink on a white front panel which I adhered to a plain white card base…I tried to only sponge the ink on the sides of the panel and leave the centre area as clean as possible since I wanted to add a frame to the card front…
I die cut the frame from gold glitter cardstock using two rounded rectangle dies…I also die cut the same frame three more times from white cardstock and layered them under the gold frame for a bit of dimension…I also die cut the sentiment from the same glitter gold cardstock using inline alpha dies and adhered them inside the gold frame…

On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped all the flower and leaf images using various shades of Altenew crisp dye inks and then added them to the gold frame…finally I added some pink jewels to embellish my card…

An Inside Shadow Box Christmas Card for Time Out Challenge #111

Recently Jennifer McGuire shared one of the easiest way to create an inside shadow box card and I have tried it out to create this Christmas card for Time Out Challenge #111 where the theme is ‘Holidays’….there was an optional twist of a one layer card, which I obviously haven’t applied to my card..

After creating the two pieces required to create this card base, I first created the card front by making an ocean scene using the make waves stencil and Oxide inks – salty ocean & blueprint sketch….I added a small wavy panel for a bit of dimension …the sentiment was white heat embossed on this panel…
I adhered the coloured in and die cut images of the ice floe, polar bear, a Christmas tree and the presents on the card front and added some gold stars to embellish it….
In the inside of this section, I applied some more Oxide inks with the make waves stencil again to continue the ocean scene from the card front…I stamped the sentiment using black ink and set it aside..

On the second section, I scored and prepared the shadow box as shown in the tutorial by Jennifer McGuire and die cut a large rectangular section from it…I applied some Oxide ink on the inside frame and adhered it to the first section that I had prepared earlier…
Now all I had to to was to add all the coloured in and die cut images on the inside of my card and my card was ready…
It was a bit difficult to take pictures of my card to show how it looks so I’m sharing a small video here…
I’m glad you stopped by to take a look at my card..thank you….Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!
