Sympathy Card – Time Out Challenge #95

I have made a sympathy card for the latest challenge at Time Out Challenges….there was an optional twist of distressing but I decided not to incorporate that for my card…the main flower image of my card is from Mama Elephant Freesias stamp set…

I die cut the front panel from watercolour cardstock using cross stitched rectangle die and then stamped the flower image using Versamark ink…I heat embossed this with some white embossing powder and masked it with a hand cut paper mask…
I then dabbed some weathered wood Distress Ink on an acrylic block and mixed it with a lot of water and quickly did a kind of a wash all over…I also used the same ink mixed with less water and splattered it over the panel…

I then removed the mask and coloured in the image using Gansai Tambi watercolors…once dry,I stamped the sentiment using Versafine onyx black ink and adhered the front panel to a plain white card base…

Instead of adding embellishments to my card,I first used my sparkle marker over the image and then added some glossy accents for a bit of shine and dimension without going over the top..

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look at my card today…Hope you will have a happy and blessed day today…!!

You Are In My Prayers

Australia being an island nation surrounded by treacherous waters, has a lot of lighthouses built to prevent shipwrecks….according to the Australian Lighthouses website, in the last 200 years it is estimated that around 350 lighthouses were built in Australia….I find them very fascinating and think about how important they were in the olden days up until there was a huge advancement in technology and navigational equipment…
The card I’m sharing today has a plain pink card base and the top layer has been created using watercolour cardstock and distress inks…I die cut the lighthouse from red as well as white cardstock and replaced some red sections of the lighthouse with the white ones…I also used the negative sections of the cloud border die cuts to use as waves and placed them on the card and placed the lighthouse die cut on one end….
The sentiment has been stamped directly onto the top layer and I used three strips of gold foil cardstock to create the effect of light being emitted from the lighthouse…finally I used the stitched rectangular die on the top layer to have an even stitched look on all edges…
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card today…Happy crafting…!

Blessings For A Happy Life

Every time I see a Hibiscus flower, I’m reminded of a few of my science teachers who taught us the parts of a flower using this very flower…visual memory is usually so much stronger than just memorising something off a book and not understanding it much…it’s great to see that most teachers nowadays teach with visual teaching aids and topic related experiments and excursions…
For today’s card I chose a black card base and a watercolor paper for the top layer…I sponged a few different green distress inks and then splattered some water for effect…
On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the Hibiscus flowers and coloured them in using Peerless watercolors…once dry,I cut them out and placed them on the top layer and added a few die cut leaves as well…
I stamped the sentiment using black ink and placed a few clear sequins to embellish the card..
Thank you for stopping by to take a look…Have a blessed day today…!!

Sending Blessings Card

Every now and then I go through all my stamps hoping for an idea to pop up or find a stamp I haven’t used in a long time…and today I pulled out these 3D doily stamps that I haven’t used recently….
The card base is plain green and for the top layer I have used watercolour paper….I have just used  one shade of green peerless watercolour to do a kind of a wash to create the background….once the top layer was dry,I stamped the sentiment at the top…
I decided not to stamp the doily stamps directly on the top layer….so I stamped them on a separate piece of cardstock using Versamark ink and then heat embossing them with black embossing powder…then I coloured them in with bright colours and cut them out and placed them on the card using adhesive  foam squares…
To decorate the card I have simply used green rhinestones in various sizes….
Hope you liked this card….

Happy Birthday To Me :)

Yes,it is my birthday today….I don’t want to think about my age or growing old but I can’t wait to open the cards that my daughters have made for me…the cards they make for me are my most favorite  and precious possessions…
Today I’m sharing a shaker card….It had been a while since I picked up the fuse tool so thought it was high time I made one…The card base is plain red….I created a base layer which has been coloured in using distress inks and I splattered water on it for effect…I also stamped the sentiment near the top and placed it inside the clear pocket…the pocket is filled it up with sequin die cuts and other sequins and then sealed completely…
I then die cut a rectangular frame from gold foil cardstock and firmly adhered the pocket behind the frame before attaching it to the card base…
Finally I added a stamped,coloured in and cut out image of the little critter from Mama Elephant Three Amigos set and placed it on top of the rectangular frame….I think whenever I place the image inside the pocket,it’s hardly visible because of all the sequins inside it… 
Hope you liked this card as much as I do….Thanks for visiting my blog…

Lucky Card

In everyone’s life, there are a few people who bring out the best in them….they appreciate and encourage you and you feel great around them…..but these people won’t stay like this forever….they need to feel appreciated as well….so if you have great people in your life, try and give them more importance than the ones who bug and trouble you infinitely….
I have a handful of great friends,and I absolutely adore each and every one of them….
Now let me tell you about this card I’m sharing with you today…The card base and top layer are both plain white…On the top layer I have repeatedly stamped the flower and leaf image from Stampin Up! Stamp Set called What I love….On a 1&1/2″ strip of blue cardstock I stamped the sentiment with black ink and added a few strips of foil cardstock on it before placing it on the top layer…
The card was ready pretty quickly…I just added a few rhinstones to finish the card…
Hope you like this card…Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog…I appreciate it a lot…
