Paper Piecing For The Flower Challenge #17

I have created cards in the past with the paper piecing technique without even knowing that is what I was doing…so when the flower challenge came up with the paper piecing challenge for this month,I was very happy to try this technique again…and this time with a proper name…ha ha..

Here is the link for the current challenge if you would like to participate as well – TFC#17
I started by creating the main elements of my card…I have used a printed dsp and some raspberry sorbet dye ink to stamp the flowers which are from the Friends of Life stamp set by Simon Says Stamp…I used the coordinating dies to cut these out and used a different dsp to die cut the leaves..
Next,I die cut three polaroid frames from white cardstock and sponged in some antique linen oxide ink in the center sections…I placed the flower and leaves on the polaroids as well as a gold die cut heart on each of them and set them aside..

I sponged in some Distress Oxide inks on the a white front panel and splattered some Nuvo gold mousse mixed with water on it…the colours I used for the background are antique linen,seedless preserves and lucky clover..I then used a WRMK embossing folder to emboss this background before adhering it to my card front..I also added a strip of gold glitter cardstock at the bottom of my front panel..

Next,I placed all the polaroid frames on my card front and started on the sentiment for my card…I die cut the word ‘hugs’ from the same printed dsp as the flowers as well as white craft foam and layered them before adhering to the card front…and finally I added a stamped label with the word ‘birthday’ on it just above the die cut word..

My card already had so many elements,so I decided not to add any embellishments on it…

Scrapbook Boutique June Challenge – Black & Gold

The card I’m sharing today is my entry for the Scrapbook Boutique June challenge…and the theme of this month’s moodboard is ‘Gold Is The New Black’…and as you can see my card is just gold and black….I think I spent more time trying to click a good enough picture of this card rather than creating it..!! 🙂

I started with a gold cardstock for the card base and a black top layer slightly smaller than the card front…I then splattered the top layer with gold paint and once dry embossed it with Heidi Swapp wanderlust embossing folder… this embossing folder has thick stripes on it which look great and also helped me place the alphabet die cuts on the card properly which was a bonus…

Using gold foil cardstock,I die cut three different sized Polaroid frames and chose a black cardstock for the center…I stamped a few different flowers on these using watermark ink and heat embossed the images using gold embossing powder…

For the sentiment I first stamped a stripy border on a piece of gold cardstock(same as card base) using watermark ink and then heat embossed it using gold embossing powder….I die cut the alphabets from this and layered them with craft foam before adhering them to the card as well as the Polaroid frames…

To embellish my card I have simply added a few black Nuvo drops on the Polaroid frames…Here is a close up shot of my card…hope you can see the gold heat embossing on the alphabet dies a bit better in this picture…

Animal Pun Cards

The stamp set I have used today has really cute animal images and pun-ny sentiments but they are quite tiny…I have made a few cards with them before but thought to try making smaller cards which are in proportion with the images…


I started with creating the card bases for this card set…I chose a green textured cardstock and cut it to size for a 2 1/2″ x 3” top fold card…next I used a star embossing folder to emboss the front of all these card…

Using white cardstock,I die cut four small Polaroid frames….I stamped the sentiment on the Polaroid frame itself and stamped the cute animals on the inner section…I coloured them in using watercolour pencil and sponged in some green ink on all four edges of the square inner section and placed it back inside the Polaroid frame..
I have used a bit of craft foam under the Polaroid frames before placing them on the cards and my card set was ready…

While I had the stamp set out, I decided to try out a standard size card as well…I used a white card base and sponged in some broken chine Distress Ink on the card front…I then dabbed a bit of worn lipstick on an acrylic block and mixed it with a bit of water before splattering it onto to card front…
I die cut a rectangle panel for the card front and stamped the cute kitty and the sentiment using black ink…then using a grey ink,I repeat stamped the image all over the panel…
I adhered some craft foam behind this panel before adhering it to the card base and added a few silver sequins to embellish it…
