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…

Programming Happy Times Ahead

I like using foil cardstock in my cards but they never show up good in pictures…I tried keeping my card flat but the picture didn’t look too great either..I really need tips and advice for this so let me know if you have some for me…


I started with a silver cardstock for the card base and cut out a large dotted rectangle mat layer using silver foil cardstock…I also die cut a smaller rectangle top panel on which I stamped the Wplus9 Big Top stamp twice to create the rays background…I also stamped the sentiment on this panel using blue dye ink..

On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the robot image and coloured it in using watercolour pencils and Dove blender pen…I then cut it out and placed it on my card..

To embellish this card I have used a few clear sequins in various sizes..and my card was ready…
While this card did not take too long to create but as I said before – it took a long time to click a picture in which the foil cardstock shows properly…and laying it flat was the only way I could get a decent picture…what do you think..??

Gear Up For A Great Birthday

I’m sure there must be other card makers like me who struggle with making cards for boys or men….for me it’s mainly because I get attracted to flowers or cute images and bright colours and find it easy to create with them…so I bought the bionic bots stamp set by MFT specifically to make cards for boys…and guess what was the very first card I made with it…??A  love themed card that I shared last month – Nuts Over Bolts About You 🙂 :p
So I had a good laugh at myself and sat down to make this card….the card base is plain white and I die cut the top layer from watercolor cardstock using an Avery Elle pierced rectangle die….I stamped all the bionic bots images randomly and coloured them in lightly using grey,red and yellow watercolour pencils and my Dove blender pen…and filled in the rest of the top layer with a light blue colour…

I stamped the sentiment on two small die cut rectangles using blue ink and before adhering them onto the card,I added three gears that I die cut using silver foil cardstock…

Here is a closer look of the sentiment section of my card…sorry I wasn’t able to click a better picture so the gears look black instead of silver…

Nuts Over Bolts About You

Today I’m sharing a sweet and simple card that you can give to your loved one at Valentine’s(yes…Valentines day is just 2 days away..!!) or at any other time you’d like to remind someone how much you love them…
As you can see…I have kept things fairly simple for this card…the card base and top layer are both made using Kraft cardstock…I then stamped the cute robot image,the sentiment and little hearts using watermark ink and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder…
I coloured in the robot and hearts using Prismacolor pencils and then brushed the image with my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen…
Thank you so much for visiting today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!
