I Love Your Smile – Shaker Card

This year I wanted to make more shaker cards because I realised I enjoyed making them now and the shaker element always seem to add so much interest without going through the sometimes laborious process of making most interactive cards…and this is only the third shaker I have made this year…so hopefully I can make more…

On a white front panel,I first die cut the large word ‘smile’ and then stamped the leafy border stamp above and below it using Versamark ink and then heat embossed it using silver embossing powder…I then used salty ocean Oxide ink  to sponge the edges and splattered some water for effect…I used the same ink to colour in a few leaves in the embossed images…

Next,I started creating the shaker by first adhering a piece of acetate behind the die cut panel…I added some silver foil paper on the front of the card base and then added white craft foam to create the shaker well and added some  blue and silver sequins inside it….I then adhered the front panel to the card base and the shaker was ready..I only added a blue banner with ‘i love your’ sentiment heat embossed on it with silver embossing powder…

Here is a small video of my shaker card…I really like how easily the sequins slide and shake because of the smooth silver paper at the base of the shaker…

I Simply Adore You – Fancy Flowers

I can’t stop making bright and colourful cards as they are my favorites,but every once a while I deliberately restrain myself and set myself a challenge…today,I wanted to see if I could create a card with a grey theme and no colours…I actually made a good enough card and here it is…

I started with a watercolour cardstock front panel cut to size and the splattered a lot of Distress Ink mixed with some water…I used the shades hickory smoke,weathered wood and iced spruce to stick to the grey theme that I planned for…I set this panel aside to dry and started on the flowers…
I stamped the two large flowers and leaves from MFT Fancy Flowers stamp set on a separate pieces of white cardstock and coloured then in similar colours and then die cut them using the coordinating dies…I also die cut a small banner from the Fishtail die-namics and stamped the sentiment on it using some grey ink…

I adhered the front panel to a grey card base and then added a thin strip of grey glitter cardstock on one side…I placed all the flowers and leaves where I wanted them and adhered them to the card front,using adhesive foam squares on some for dimension…
I adhered the sentiment banner using some more adhesive foam and  to embellish my card I have used a few silver lining Nuvo crystal drops…
Let me know what you think of my non-bright/colourful card…and thanks so much for your visit today…have a happy and wonderful day…!!

Ghostly Greetings

Today I’m sharing my second Halloween card which I’m also entering in the MFT Sketch Challenge 355…this is an interactive card and if you scroll down to the very bottom of this post,you will be able to see a video of my finished card….I really like these cute images from the My Favorite Things Fab-BOO-lous stamp set and there were quite a few of them in the set so I had a hard time deciding which ones to use on my card today…

This is a sketch on which I have based my card design for the challenge
To get started,I cut up the front panel from watercolour cardstock to size and applied Distress Inks on it to create the background…I have used the shades carved pumpkin,blueprint sketch,wilted violet and black soot…I then splattered some water for effect as well as some white gold watercolour from the Gansai Tambi starry watercolor set…
Once this panel was dry,I die cut the three spinner channels and added the haunted house and tree that I die cut from black cardstock..I have also added some vellum pieces behind all windows and the door of the house which I coloured in with a yellow marker..

On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped and coloured in the ghost images and cut them out..I added the spinner discs underneath each one and added a 1/2” black circle punch out to the back of the discs once they were placed inside the channels….
I then added foam tape behind the front panel and adhered it to a black card base…and finally I added some glossy accents to all three cute ghost images for a bit of shine..

I Need Your Hugs.Stat!

I loved the images from the Dogs stamp set by Katzelkraft…especially their expressions…so when I bought their Jungle Animal stamp set I was even more excited to used those images for my cards…I found the elephant image in this set really adorable with a sad face and looked like she/he really needed a cuddle or two…!!

I first stamped some grass at the base of a  white panel…I used two shades of green for a bit of dimension…I wasn’t too confident at directly stamping and colouring the elephant image so I stamped and coloured it on a separate piece of white cardstock and then cut it out and placed it on the stamped grass…

I a die cut banner from same light grey cardstock as the card base and then stamped the sentiment on it using black and red ink..I adhered this banner in the middle of the front panel using some craft foam underneath…
I adhered the white panel to the grey card base and added a few silver Nuvo drops to embellish my card…

Camp Create Day 2 – Magnificent Masking

So this is the second day of MFT Camp Create and the focus today was to create a background using the masking technique…Karolyn created a beautiful sunset horizon for her card and tutorial…and I decided to create a rainbow rays background for my card…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I first prepared the masks for my card using some copy paper(cut to size for the card front),a ruler and pencil…I marked all the rays first and then cut them out….I adhered all the sections to a white front panel using removable adhesive tape and then removed one section at a time to colour in with Distress Inks…
The shades of Distress Inks that I have used here are – wilted violet,blueprint sketch,salty ocean,mowed lawn,squeezed lemonade,carved pumpkin and candied apple…once the panel was ready,I splattered some water as well as some diluted Nuvo gold mousse on it and then adhered it to a plain white card base…

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped the dogs,hearts and clouds images using Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed them…I then coloured them all in using Spectrum Noir markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies…I adhered some die cuts directly and some using die cut craft foam underneath for a bit of dimension…
Finally I stamped the sentiment on a die cut white fishtail banner using red ink and since I was using the Misti stamping tool,I was able to re-stamp the sentiment using watermark ink and clear emboss this as well…I cut off one end of the banner and adhered it to my card front and my card was ready…
