Two Small Shaped Cards

I like to create shaped cards every once in a while….the last time I made one, it was a heart shaped card for a challenge and I wanted to create a few more…they were pretty quick to make so I made two while I was at it…

For my first card I die cut two scalloped circles from heavyweight white cardstock and adhered them to create the card base…next I die cut a circle from watercolour cardstock for the front panel and applied some Distress Oxide inks on it…I have used salty ocean, blueprint sketch and shaded lilac for this and then dabbed it with a wet stamp shammy to create that background effect…I added a small grassy die cut on this circle and adhered it to the card front…
On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped and coloured in the sheep and cut it out and placed it on the card front…I then stamped the sentiment using black ink and embellished my card with a few clear confetti sequins..

My second card was much quicker to create….I first die cut two edged circles from black cardstock for the card base and one smaller one from kraft cardstock for the front panel…I stamped the sentiment and the pattern with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder…it is a layering stamp, so I heat embossed the sentiment layer with white embossing powder and then adhered this top panel to the card base..
To add a bit of interest, I coloured in the flower and two leaves with a shimmery silver watercolour and adhered some tiny red sequins to embellish it…

I think I spent more time trying to click pictures of these two cards than I did making them…one or both of them kept rolling away…and this is the only picture of these two ‘not in motion’…ha ha..

Happy Mother’s Day!!

It’s Mother’s Day in Australia on Sunday the 13th of May so here’s wishing all the mums a very happy mother’s day…may your kids always give you a reason to smile..!!
Today I’m sharing a cute card with adorable mama n baby elephants…and I was super happy with myself when I got the idea to put a crown on the mama’s head…also I tried out an ink extracting technique I learnt from a tutorial recently shared by Chanin where she used a chamois cloth to create a pattern on a distress/oxide ink blended background…so easy…

After I die cut the background panel and the die cut meadow border,I covered them with various distress and oxide inks,I lifted some of the ink with a lightly wet stamp shammy..I loved the texture it creates but I think this technique would work really great with dark colours…I added some die cut birch trees to the front panel  and then adhered it to a plain white card base…I also stamped some grass using green ink on the meadow border and adhered it to the card with some craft foam for a bit of dimension..

I stamped, coloured in and cut out the elephant images and adhered them to the card front and then added the die cut and stamped sentiment just above…to embellish my cards I have used a lot of clear confetti sequins as well as some Nuvo glaze on the elephants for a bit of shine..

Pivot Pop Up Birthday Card

I have had an awesome time making this pivot pop up card…the Lawn Fawn die makes it super easy and so much fun…I had already seen how it works in a few youtube videos,but the very first time I opened my card after the pop up element was added inside it – I may have squealed like a happy  little child!!!

It was a bit hard to take pictures of how the pop up element works in this card so I’m sharing a video of my finished card first and a few photos as well…
For this card, I have used a plain white top fold card base and simply added a die cut striped purple paper from the LF Really Rainbow paper pack for the front panel…I adhered a coloured in giraffe image and stamped the sentiment directly on the panel…I have also added a little bird above that sentiment and to make the giraffe and the bird look bright and shiny,I applied some Nuvo glaze on them…

Now to the fun part…the pivot pop on the inside of the card…I just had to die cut and assemble the elements which was quite easy…but before I put it all together,I created the scene on the long pop up panel…I used Distress inks to create the background and the trees and then added the coloured in and cut out animals and the tiny die cut clouds…I also stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment on this panel…once this panel was ready,I first adhered the pop up mechanism at the center of the card inside and then adhered the panel to it…

I also added some die cut clouds and grass borders on the inside of the card as well as a tiny branch with a parrot on it and my card was ready..I did have to open and close it a few times so that the mechanism starts to work properly and after a while it did..
