Thanks For Being My Friend

Oh I love these birds by Altenew..they are from Birds of a feather stamp set…I really feel that a colour layering stamp set adds so many possibilities and so much ease for the card maker/crafter….and since it’s a thank you card for a friend,I used two of the three birds from this set that faced each other…

I created the background panel first with some Distress Oxide inks and Altenew cube builder stencil…I have used the following shades of ink – hickory smoke, frayed burlap and peeled paint and I didn’t use the stencil to build the cube background but just the simple diamond grid…I splattered some water for effect and also used a stitched rectangle edge die to emboss a border on this panel before adhering it to a plain white card base…

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I used various Altenew inks to stamp the birds…for the first bird I used minty mint, pinkalicious, galactic stream and  rocky shore and for the second one I have used deep iris, maple yellow, orange cream and rocky shore….I then die cut these with the coordinating dies and die cut the branches from white cardstock and placed them on my card front…
I stamped the sentiment using black ink and added a few gold sequins to embellish my card…

Be Happy – Altenew March Inspiration Challenge

This month’s Altenew Challenge is by Virginia LuI really love her cardmaking style and my entry for the challenge is also inspired by her as she has created some cards with heat embossed flowers on vellum which look so very very beautiful….and that’s exactly what I did for my card..heat embossed some flowers…

This is the image and colours for the challenge…

I cut watercolor cardstock to size for my front panel and used a piece of acetate, Altenew crisp dye inks and water spray bottle to create the background by simply smooshing the ink on paper…I have used aqualicious,coral bliss and sunkissed shades here…once dry,I used a postage stamp edge rectangle die to emboss the edges of my panel and then adhered it to a plain white card base…

On a piece on vellum paper,I stamped a few Cosmos flowers using Versamark ink and then heat embossed it using gold embossing powder…I didn’t have the matching dies by then,so I simply cut them out…I carefully adhered these flowers to my front panel by using a liquid glue just behind the embossed areas so it wouldn’t show…
Next,I die cut the word ‘BE’ three times from thick cardstock using bold caps die and layered them together…I sponged some coral bliss ink on it before adhering it the the card front..I gold heat embossed  the rest of the sentiment on a small white strip and sponged aqualicious ink on it to stick to the colours in the challenge..and finally I added some gold Nuvo drops to embellish my card…

Baby,You’re Perfect

With Valentine’s Day just a couple of weeks away,I wanted to make a few love themed cards…at the same time I don’t want my cards to be specific for just this one occasion…I have used three Mama Elephant stamp sets for my card today and I just love these cute pandas..!!

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by stamping the rays on a white front panel using the citrus burst Altenew dye ink….I then added a green printed DSP at the base of this panel which I have die cut using a scalloped stitched edge die…to add a bit of texture to this panel,I have embossed the edges using a large rectangle die with a scallop and stitched detail (a die by Kat Scrappiness)..I adhered this panel to a plain white card base…
On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped and die cut the panda,heart and clouds images and then adhered them to my card front…I have used adhesive foam squares behind some of these die cuts…
I stamped the sentiment using black ink right in the middle of my card and adhered some tiny gold and red sequins to embellish it..

Santa And His Reindeers – 3 Cards

It’s the 23rd of December…my girls used to call it Christmas Eve Eve when they were little…ha ha…I think right now all they want to do is open up their prezzies ASAP…(don’t we all!!)…the cards I’m sharing today have been made using the WPlus9 Santa’s Reindeer stamp and die set…this set was released last year but I wasn’t able to get it then…but I knew I was getting it for this year’s cards for sure..

For my first card I die cut the front panel from white cardstock using a stitched rectangle die and then die cut two windows on it using dies from the Lawn Fawn Shadow Box die set…these dies give a stitched detail on the outside of the die cut section…
On the rectangle shaped window I added a panel on which I had sponged in some salty ocean Distress ink and then used the Avery Elle snowfall background die…I adhered this panel to a white card base and then added the coloured in and die cut Santa,Chimney and Reindeer images…
I stamped the ‘Merry Xmas’ sentiment using red ink inside the oval window and adhered some tiny red sequins to embellish my card..

I tried to create a night sky scene for the background of my second card using Distress Oxide inks…I have used the shades fossilized amber, salty ocean, wilted violet and black soot and then splattered some water as well as white gold watercolour on it…once dry,I die cut this panel to size using  a dotted rectangle die…

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder and then adhered it to a white card base…and finally I adhered the watercoloured and die cut images on my card…and finally to embellish it I have used silver star sequins…

Now my third card went exactly to plan so I was really happy….I die cut a panel from white cardstock using one of the Kat’s Scrappiness Postage Stamp Edge dies…I then sponged in some salty ocean and squeezed lemonade Distress Inks and sprayed quite a lot of water on top…
Once dry,I adhered this panel onto a deep red cardstock card base and then added all the die cut images to it…I have used some sparling clear eqions in various sizes to embellish my card…

Holiday Greetings & Baubles – 2 Cards

I’m sharing two cards today which I have made with a lot of care…I have chosen traditional colours for the background of my first card and soft colours for stamping the background of the second one…it has been very exciting to make so many unique holiday cards this year…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
For my first card I die cut the front panel using a stitched rectangle die and then used a smaller rectangle die from the shadow box die set to create a window in the middle of the panel with a stitched effect all around it…I then sponged in some candied apple and lucky clover Distress Oxide inks on this panel..I also splattered some water and gold watercolour on it…
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on this panel using white embossing powder and then started on the village scene inside the window..

There is a snow bank die in the shadow box die set which I have used in the window after sponging in cracked pistachio and salty ocean Oxide inks…I then added the coloured in and die cut images from the winter village stamp set and then added a blue panel at the back on which I have used the falling snow die….

I adhered this panel to a plain white card base and then added some white Nuvo drops to embellish it…

I was quite excited once I finished my second card…why?…well,I didn’t muck it up(ha ha) and it turned out exactly as planned…
I started by stamping large baubles from Waffle flower Holiday Labels stamp set on a piece of white die cut panel using Altenew citrus burst and cotton candy dye inks and then stamped the same bauble on a separate piece if cardstock using persian blue ink…I stamped a deer silhouette inside the baubles using mocha and sand dune ink shades..

There were some tiny dots stamps in the WF Holiday Labels stamp set which I used to randomly stamp and fill in some of the background on the white panel using the same inks I used to stamp the baubles..I then adhered this panel to a light pink textured card base..

I die cut the blue bauble I had stamped earlier using a circle die and added a string/ribbon die cut to it and adhered it to the card front using some craft foam underneath…and to finish my card I added some clear star sequins to the blue bauble as a bit of a shiny element in my card…
