Two Quick Cards – Birthday & Friendship

There isn’t anything common between the two cards I’m sharing today except that they were both pretty quick to make…every now and then I do like to make simple and quick cards like these ones…the first one is a funny cat birthday card – hilarious actually, that cat has a priceless expression on it’s face don’t you think?….and for my second card I tried out the texture paste again…

I started my first card by die cutting the front panel and then stamped and clear heat embossed the cat, mouse as well as the sentiment…I then coloured in the images using Zig markers and a water brush…once dry, I  sponged some chipped sapphire Distress ink on all edges of this panel and splattered some water for effect…
I adhered this panel to a plain white card base and added some jewels to embellish it..

For my second card, I first sponged squeezed lemonade Distress Oxide ink on the front panel and splattered some water for effect….I then used a stencil and some Distress texture paste to add the pattern only on the base of this panel and set it aside to dry…

Next, I stamped the sentiment on the front panel and then added a frame die cut from a light green glitter cardstock…I adhered this panel to a plain white card base and then added some tiny green sequins and black Nuvo drops to embellish it…

You’re Not Getting Old – Shaker Card For MFT Birthday Project

I was so happy to create and add my entry to the challenge at the MFT challenge blog for the Birthday Project as the challenge this time was to make a shaker card….and since it was always my plan to make more shaker cards this year, it was an added bonus for me…also,I found the perfect sentiment to use with these adorable turtles(they usually live a long life)….

Most of the planning in this card was for the layout of the turtles as they are quite big…so I started by stamping and colouring in the bird and turtle images and then fussy cutting them…I also die cut two stitched borders from white cardstock and sponged some antique linen Distress Ink on it…I kept these elements aside for later and started on the shaker…

First I created the background panel with the mini cloud edges stencil and salty ocean Distress Ink…I then cut a blue glitter panel same size as the card front and then used a smaller rectangle die to create a frame…on the back of this frame,I adhered the two hillside edge panels and then stuck an acetate panel..I then adhered a whole lot of foam tape behind this frame to create the shaker well…
I added a lot of clear and sparkly blue sequins inside the shaker well and then adhered the background panel to close and seal the shaker…now this shaker panel could easily be added to the card base…

I stamped the sentiment on the card front and adhered the cut out images as well…I also added a bit of glossy accents on the images for a bit of shine…
Here is a small video of how my shaker card looks….shaker cards are so much fun don’t you think..??
Thank you so much for taking the time and visiting my blog today…Have a wonderful day ahead…Happy crafting..!!

Lets Pretend – Belated Birthday Card

I started today’s card with a simple theme – a belated birthday card for a male…picking out the sentiment was pretty easy but not the image to go with it…so after a lot of choosing, I decided to use this robot image with a very cheesy grin..!!

I started by stamping the robot image and the sentiment on a white watercolour cardstock panel…I have used the Daniel Smith watercolor dot chart to colour in this image…along with the blue shade I have an iridescent moonstone colour to fill in the image…this shade is a kind of a grey with a lot of shine and as usual it doesn’t show up well in the photo…

I sponged in some mermaid lagoon Distress Oxide ink on the front panel and splattered some water for effect…and just because I couldn’t not, I added some silver and blue sequins to embellish my card…
