Hello Cards

I have to keep reminding myself that not everyone likes ‘bright and colourful’…so when I made a colourful hello card,I decided to make another one with not so bright colours in it…

My first card has a textured lilac coloured card base and a die cut white top layer…on this top layer is used the base stamps from a layering stamp set and various bright dye inks to stamp a section of the top layer…
On a separate piece of cardstock,I used various shades of Peerless watercolours to randomly paint on it and once dry,I die cut the word ‘hello’from it ans well as from purple coloured craft foam and adhered it to the card front..
I simply added some Nuvo jewel drops to embellish this card…

My second card has a kraft cardstock card base and a black top layer…then on a smaller white panel,I stamped the various succulent and planter images and coloured them in using watercolours…
I die cut a wonky stitched frame for this panel from white cardstock as well as a small label for the sentiment…I placed the panel off center and adhered the sentiment stamped label near the top,with half of it on the panel and the other half on the black top layer…
To embellish this card I used a few green sequins..

Thank You

I can’t even remember how I made backgrounds for cards until I started using Distress Inks….and now I can’t stop using them…the best part is that even if everyone used the same colours,not two cards would be similar…I have been watching videos for the newly released Distress Oxide ink pads…and they look even more amazing…let’s see when I will be able to get those…my birthday probably.. 🙂

For today’s card I have chosen a peach-ish pink textured cardstock and have die cut a watercolour cardstock panel using a stitched rectangle die first and then die cut one end using the stitched scallop edges die…I then sponged in worn lipstick and weathered wood distress inks and used an embossing folder and water to create a pattern/effect on this panel…
The sentiment has been stamped using watermark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder…I cut out the stamped and coloured in images of a pot and succulents and  placed them below the sentiment…I have used a few sequins to embellish this card…
Thanks for visiting my blog today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!

Faux Shaker Card

I love shaker cards and I have tried a lot of different ways to create them…they do take a bit of time,patience and planning so you can get a good result…so when I saw this card and tutorial last year the Houses Built Of Cards blog,I knew I had to try this one out..It’s a fun and easy Faux Shaker Card and quite easy to make as well…
I have used a plain white cardstock card base and die cut green printed dsp for the first layer…I then die cut a frame using another green printed cardstock and cut out white cardstock a bit smaller than this frame…
On the white panel,I stamped the sentiment and the succulent image and coloured it in…I then applied some glossy accents and sprinkled lots of yellow and pink star sequins on it….had I used some sort of clear sequins etc,I would’ve been able to cover a bit of the stamped images as well…once the glossy accents was dry,I placed the frame on top and adhered this panel onto the card…
Thank you for stopping by to take a look at my card today…Have a blessed day…!!

Thinking Of You

Up untill a a few years back,the only plants I could manage not to kill were mainly succulents,a few herbs and a lucky bamboo..not that I didn’t keep trying but it was just how things were…I love all the different types and colours of succulents and they are so great indoors as well…
Jane’s Doodles Cactus stamp set has so many lovely plants and pots images that can be used to make a great variety of cards…I had been looking for this stamp set for a while and finally was able to get it..so many possibilities with this stamp set…
The card base is plain white and I have stamped a border stamp using bright pink ink on one edge of the card base….I then cut watercolor paper to size and stamped the pot and a few succulent plants on it…I then masked the stamped images and splattered a bit of pink distress ink on the top layer..
After removing the mask,I coloured in the images….the sentiment has been stamped on a small pink strip of cardstock and placed on the card… 
Thank you so much for visiting my blog today…Hope you will have a happy and crafty day…!
