You’re A Koality Friend – Time Out Challenge #108

A beautiful card by created and shared recently by Olga Moss on Instagram in which she used the fringe borders upside down inspired me a lot and I did tell her that I was going to try her idea…I didn’t just want to copy her, so I spent quite a bit of time trying to incorporate the upside down fringe on my card design…

On a white front panel,I used some Distress inks and MFT radiating rays stencil to print the sun and rays pattern…I have used squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, spiced marmalade and carved pumpkin ink shades and also splattered a bit of water for effect…
Next,I die cut a lot of textured cardstock strips in shades of green and brown using the fringe scalloped border die and adhered them to this panel upside down so it looks somewhat like grass…I used a stitched rectangle die to emboss the edge of the front panel before adhering it to a plain white card base…

I stamped and coloured in the tree and koala images on a separate piece of white cardstock and cut them out before placing them on my card…I have applied Nuvo glaze on certain parts of the images for a bit of shine as well as dimension…
I stamped the sentiment on a die cut fishtail banner and adhered it to the card front using adhesive foam and added some white Nivo drops to embellish my card…

Koala Hugs

A while ago,a crafter on Instagram – Felicia( smileyface003 ) – shared some gorgeous card panels that she created using Nuvo drops liquid…she shared a tutorial video as well and I’ve had this on my ‘to try’ list since that day…I think I used less of the liquid and spread it out much thinner than I should’ve but I still love the result…

I used the red berry Nuvo liquid and and a stencil and printed the pattern onto watercolour cardstock and set it aside to dry….it took a few good hours but the result was great…so I die cut it to size for my card and then placed this panel on a light grey textured card base…be sure to wash the stencil with warm soapy water immediately…

 I stamped the Koala and baby on a separate piece of white cardstock and the coloured it in using watercolour pencils and Dove blending pen…I cut it out and adhered it to the card base using some craft foam….

I stamped the sentiment on a long thin strip of grey cardstock and adhered it to the card front..and finally to embellish my card I have used a few silver sequins…

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…

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..

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…
