Leafy Birthday Cards

I am sharing two cards that I have made with the Altenew Leaf Canopy stamp and die set….In my first card I have tried out a light wash of the Altenew watercolours for the background and for my second card, I have used the fadeout inkpad by ink on 3 to try out a no line colouring effect…need to practice a bit more with this inkpad but I think it’s a good start…

Huge Birthday Wishes

I’m sharing a cute card today which was very quick to make as well…I have used the MFT grassy edges stencil in this card and I love how it adds depth to the card with actually adding all the layers…which means that it is very very post friendly.. 🙂

I started by adding the grassy edges on a plain white front panel… I haved used various Distress inks with the stencil…I then used a large stitched rectangle die to emboss a border around the panel and then adhered this panel to a plain white card base….
Next, I stamped the giraffe, elephant and little bird images on a separate piece of cardstock and coloured them in using my Zig pens…once dry, I die cut them and adhered them to my card front using some adhesive foam underneath…I also applied some Nuvo glaze on these die cuts for a bit of shine..

Finally, I stamped the sentiment using black ink and added a few jewels to embellish my card..

Bright Birthday Card Using Altenew Ornamental Flower

Finally I got a bit of time to update my blog…thank you all for your patience….especially my crafty friends who got concerned for me…let me assure you that all is well and I just got too busy for a bit….even though I am still making cards, I just couldn’t find the time to update my blog for the past few weeks…so today I’m sharing a birthday card with bright flowers and a soft background that I have made using the Distress blending brushes….

I started by applying wilted violet and squeezed lemonade Distress Inks with the blending brushes on a piece of white smooth cardstock….I splattered some water for effect and once dry, I adhered it to a plain white card base…
Next, I stamped the beautiful ornamental flowers and leaves layering stamps on a separate piece of white cardstock using Altenew crisp inks…for the leaves I used sweet leaf, just green, hunter green and evergreen and for the flowers I used sunkissed, orange cream, firebrick, autumn blaze,citrus burst,maple yellow and honey drizzle shades of inks…

I die cut the flowers and the leaves using coordinating dies and once I was happy with the arrangement,I adhered them to the card front..I then stamped the sentiment on a white strip using deep iris dye ink and added a layer of purple glitter strip behind it before adhering it to my card as well… and finally to embellish my card I have added a few jewels..

Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Sharing another quick card today….I used Oxide inks to stamp the scribble flower images on the front panel of my card and I already have another idea forming in my head using this MFT circle scribble stamp set…I kept the colours to a minimum for this card and have left a bit of blank space so that the beautiful flowers and leaves remain in focus…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by die cutting the front panel using a large cross stitch rectangle die and then stamped all the flowers and leaves using the following Oxide inks – worn lipstick, seedless preserves, twisted citron, lucky clover…I then adhered this panel on the front of a pink card base…

I stamped the sentiment using seedless preserves Oxide ink with label maker sentiment stamp set and cut them out before adhering them to my card using some adhesive foam for a bit of dimension…

To embellish my card I have added some pink jewels in various sizes..

Easy Colouring Birthday Card

The card I’m sharing today is the easiest and fastest background that I have created….usually I would spend a fair bit of time to colour in all the images, but not this time…I simply added dots of colours with my watercolour markers inside the images and sprayed some perfect pearls mixed with water on it and all my images were coloured in all at once…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I first stamped the leaf and flower images using watermark ink and then heat embossed them with a platinum embossing powder…this embossing helps keep post of the colours within the images when I spray them with the water mixed with perfect pearls powder..I have used Zig clean colour brush markers here..once dry, I adhered this panel to a plain white card base…

I die cut a circle from some vellum paper and adhered the stamped and die cut sentiment on it…I also added some heat embossed and die cut flower and leaf images here….and finally to embellish my card I have added a few pink jewels….

Many Thanks

I had started today’s card with an intention to create a bit of depth on my stamped panel simply by adding 2nd generation stamping as I have seen Jennifer McGuire do in many of her cards and tutorials…but as you can see, it didn’t work out for me…but I still did manage to create a lovely card in the end…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I stamped the flowers and leaves on a plain white front panel using various pink, purple and green shades of Altenew crisp dye inks…for those who don’t know what 2nd generation stamping is – simply put, it is when you stamp again immediately after you have stamped…since you don’t reink the stamp, you get a lighter version of the image…this way you are able to add depth and/or dimension to your images without using too many shades of inks…

I stamped the large sentiment using black ink and then adhered this panel to a plain white card base….
then on a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped a few extra leaves and flowers using the same shade of inks and cut them out and placed them just below the sentiment…I  did use some adhesive foam underneath them to add the much needed dimension…

To embellish my card I have added a lot of pink and purple shiny jewels in various sizes…
I’m glad you stopped by to take a look at my card….Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

Alcohol Ink Background Card

I seem to get carried away while playing with Alcohol inks and keep forgetting not to cover the whole panel with the ink so there is some blank space on the panel…it was very hard to come up with a design for this background so I decided to keep it simple and just added a large gold die cut and and a heat embossed sentiment…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

For the front panel I have cut Yupo paper to size and added the alcohol inks and a gold mixative as well….once dry, I used a large cross stitch rectangle die to add the detail and adhered it to a plain white card base…

I then die cut the large medallion from gold foil card stock and twice from white cardstock and layered them before adhering to the card front…I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using gold embossing powder and then layered it with a strip of red cardstock before adhering it on top of the medallion…

And last but not the least, I have added a few jewels in various sizes to embellish my card…

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….

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

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…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

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…
