I Love You – Shaker Card

Sharing my first shaker card for this year…and this one didn’t take too long to make so I am pretty sure I will make quite a few shaker cards this year….I am still (and always will be) in awe of card makers who create the most amazing shaker cards with such ease and finesse..

I first created the background of the front panel of my card using Distress Oxide inks….I have used seedless preserves and picked raspberry shades here…I also splattered quite a bit of water for effect…then using the corbel heart die,I die cut beautiful heart pattern on the front panel…I added a piece of acetate behind this die cut section and started to create the shaker element…
I used foam tape to create the shaker well behind the front panel…I placed a lot of pink and red sequins inside this ‘well’ and added a panel of gold glitter cardstock as the background of my shaker…I used more foam tape to the back of my panel and adhered it to a plain white card base…

I die cut the word ‘you’ from white card stock and adhered it  on my card front….I then stamped the words ‘I love’ on a long white banner and adhered it to complete the sentiment…and finally to embellish my card I have used some small die cut hearts from gold glitter cardstock …

Two Cute Dog Cards – Merry Christmas & Oh Joy

MFT has released the cutest dog stamps for Christmas this year…and I’m sharing two cards that I have made using the Happy Pawlidays stamp set…should’ve got the coordinating dies as well but didn’t…might get them later… 🙂

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I started my first card by sponging in some Distres Inks very lightly onto a die cut front panel…I have used the shades – shaded lilac,tumbled glass and spun sugar and then adhered this panel to a white card base…

I die cut the letters for the word ‘oh joy’ and a dome frame from pink glitter cardstock and well as some pink foam and adhered them to the card front..

On a piece of watercolour cardstock I stamped and clear heat embossed the little dog,the tree and the present and coloured them in using crayola markers and a water brush..once dry,I cut them out and placed them inside the dome frame…
To embellish my card,I used red Nuvo drops on the tree and tiny pink star sequins all over the card..I also applied my Spectrum Noir glitter pen over the dog’s santa hat and blue stocking…

On my second card I wanted to create a night sky scene and used Distress inks for it…I have used these shades – dried marigold,lucky clover,blueprint sketch and black soot…I also splattered some water as well as gold watercolour for effect and then adhered this panel to a white card base…

The images for this card have also been stamped and coloured in the same way as the previous card – using crayola markers,I cut them out and adhered them on the card as well as the die sentiment using gold glitter cardstock…

I added gold Nuvo drops to the tree and used some clear star sequins to embellish the card…

Freezy Fellas – Three Cards

Today I am sharing three cards with you….and all three have the very cute snowmen from the Paper Smooches stamp set called Freezy Fellas…I have really enjoyed making these cards and have made a lot more using this set and that’s because these snowmen didn’t need to be coloured in – except their accessories and noses…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I stamped and coloured in the moose(from Paper Smooches Chubby Chum Pals set) on the front panel and masked it before creating the background for my card…I  used the following Distress inks for it – squeezed lemonade, blueprint sketch, wilted violet and black soot and addded some white paint splatters as well…I adhered a die cut white glitter panel to the base of this panel using the hillside border die and then die cut it using a dotted rectangle die and adhered it to a white card base..

I added the three snowmen to create the scene and stamped the sentiment just above the moose..I also adhered a holly leaf and berries die cut image at the top right of my card…to embellish the card,I used a die cut red heart as well as some clear confetti sequins…

My second card was much quicker than the first card…I used the Altenew graffiti stencil and salty ocean Distress Ink to print the pattern on the front panel and then stamped the sentiment using crimson crisp dye ink…I stamped a lot of snowflakes on this panel and then adhered it to the card base…
I stamped,coloured in and die cut the snowman and the holly leaf bunches and adhered them to my card and finally to embellish my card I have used tiny blue rhinestones in the middle of all the snowflakes

Now on my third card I decided not to create a background with inks but a background with a die….so I cut out the front panel from gold glitter cardstock and die cut a section of it using the snowfall die from MFT and adhered it to the white card base..
I stamped,coloured in and die cut the snowman and holly leaves and adhered them to the card front and then die cut the word ‘merry’ from a separate piece of cardstock on which I had sponged in some salty ocean Distress Oxide ink and splattered with water…I  die cut the same alphabets from light blue craft foam and layered them before adhering to the card…I stamped the banner ‘christmas’ stamp with salty ocean ink as well and cut it out and adhered it under the word ‘merry’ and my card was ready..

I will be entering these cards in the Paper Smooches monthly challenge – www.papersmooches.net – as the theme of this month’s challenge is ‘Winter’…

I am super glad you stopped by my blog today…thank you so much…hope your day will be bright and happy…!!

Fairy Birthday Wishes

I am so happy with today’s card as it turned out almost as planned…I had bought this mushroom stamp set (You’re A Fungi by Hero Arts) especially for my fairy stamps and I’m so glad I did…


For a textured pink card base I chose a watercolour cardstock top layer the same size as the card front…I then sponged in some Distress inks to cover the top layer…I have used spun sugar,picked raspberry and abandoned coral here…I also sprinkled some water for a bit of effect…

I die cut a grassy border from green glitter cardstock and adhered it to the base of the top layer..I also die cut the word ‘fairy’ from silver glitter cardstock as well as pink craft foam using lowercase alphabet dies and adhered it to the card…I stamped the rest of the sentiment on a silver label…

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped and coloured in the fairy images…I cut them out and placed them on the card…I have used foam squares on some of them for a bit of dimension…

Finally I used Nuvo jewel drops,glossy accents and sparkle pen to embellish my card…

MFT Color Challenge 76 – Two Cards

I love creating colourful cards but to create something with a given a set of colours is still quite a challenge for me…and that’s the reason I try and participate in the colour challenges at the MFT Card Challenges Blog…these cards are for colour challenge #76..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
For my first card,I chose a grey cardstock for the cardbase and die cut the top panel from white cardstock…I then sponged in weathered wood and picked raspberry Distress ink on the top panel..I sprinkled some water on this panel and dabbed quickly then let it dry…
I then stamped the sentiment as well as some stars using black ink and adhered this panel to the card base..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I stamped the bear on a separate piece of cardstock and coloured it in before cutting it out and adhering it to the front panel using some adhesive foam…to embellish this card I have used a few clear confetti sequins…

As you can see in this close-up photo,I used the challenge colours in the bear’s hat and clothes and the background as well..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I pulled out Distress Oxide inks and a stencil for my second card and created the background on a white front panel…I have used I have used cracked pistachio and picked raspberry shades here…I then spritzed some water on this panel and blotted it with a paper towel before adhering it to the white card base..

I stamped the little girl with a sign on a separate piece of cardstock,coloured it in and cut it out and placed it on the card using adhesive foam squares…I did use a white gel pen to create a pattern on the little girls dress…

Using a couple of blue shades of my Spectrum Noir markers,I coloured in the die cut alphabets for the word ‘hi’ and layered them with white craft foam before adhering it to the card front…I also applied a bit of glossy accents on this word as well as the sign board for a bit of shine…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I have used some sparkling clear sequins to embellish my card…and in this card I have used all the challenge colours to colour in the little girl image…

Camp Create Day 5 – Delightful Die Cutting

So,it’s the final MFT Camp Create activity today…Day 5 is all about Delightful Die Cutting and Stephanie shared a great video and beautiful cards..I decided to keep things quite simple for today’s card…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started with a white front panel and sponged on some wilted violet Distress Oxide ink on it and randomly left some places light and some dark(yes,it was intentional)…I then splattered some water on this panel as well as the same ink mixed with a bit of water..

On a separate piece of white cardstock I sponged on the same ink again and splattered a bit of water as well before die cutting the alphabets required for my sentiment..I applied some glossy accents all over the alphabets and once dry,I adhered them to my card front..I did use this white negative panel as a template just like it was shown in the video so it was pretty easy to adhere the alphabets correctly on the front panel…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

For the other half of the sentiment,I used a small black strip of cardstock and stamped the word Birthday on it and then heat embossed it with silver heat embossing powder…I adhered it under the alphabet die cut word using some black craft foam underneath…

And finally I have used a few silver stars and sequins to embellish my card…

For participating in Day 5 of MFT Camp Create I have now earned this final badge as well…

I hope you can see how much fun I’ve had these past few days…Thank you so much for stopping by my blog…Hope you will have a fabulous and crafty day ahead..!!

A Card For Mummy & A Card For Daddy

After viewing a lot of Mother’s and Father’s Day cards on various blogs,Instagram,Facebook etc recently,I got quite inspired to create a few myself…I have also been able to try out my lowercase dies for these cards which I really wanted to try after viewing so many awesome alphabet die cards by Therese Calvrid


In Australia,Father’s Day is celebrated in September while Mother’s Day is celebrated in May…so it’s a bit too early for me to create a Father’s Day card..but I’m sure all cardmakers will agree that it’s never too early to make cards for any occasion…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Both my cards are very similar and I made them both at the same time…I started with cutting the card bases to size from coloured cardstock…I then cut bright yellow and green plain cardstock for the front panel which I have embossed using the WRMK next level embossing folders…I cut these panels 1cm. short from one side only and adhered them to the card front…

I then die cut the words ‘mummy’ and ‘daddy’ from printed DSP using the lowercase dies…I die cut the same words again from craft foam and adhered the foam behind the alphabets before placing them onto the cards..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped,coloured in and cut out the Cuddly Koalas with their joey’s(that’s what you call a baby Koala) and placed them onto the card as well…I stamped the sentiments on thin strips of leftover cardstock from the card base and added those to the cards as well…
Finally I have used Nuvo Crystal Drops to embellish these cards…

I have had a ton of fun making these cards…Hope you liked these too…
