Many Thank Ewes

Aren’t these little sheep/ewes absolutely adorable??They are from the MFT stamp set called Ewe And Me Forever….I was going to make this a love theme card as well but changed my mind and made it a thank you card instead… 🙂

Firstly,I created the background on the front panel using Distress Oxide inks….I used peacock feather,cracked pistachio and salty ocean shades here…I then embossed this panel using a geometric WRMK next level embossing folder…and finally I applied some Nuvo gold mousse mixed with a bit of water on this panel with a wide paint brush…I also splattered some of it on the panel and once dry,I adhered this panel to a plain white card base…

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped the three ewes and coloured them in using Gansai Tambi watercolours…I die cut them with the coordinating dies and also die cut some trees to create the scene on my card…

I didn’t want to cover the background panel with a hill style panel for the sheep and I still wanted the sheep and the trees to be ‘on’ something rather than just simply stuck onto my card….so,I used a scalloped edge die as well as a stitched edge die of the same curvy shape and die cut a thin strip from gold foil cardstock and once it was adhered to my card front,I added all the threes and two of the sheep die cuts…

I stamped the sentiment on a small label that I had die cut from gold foil cardstock as well and then added the third ewe just above it…and finally, embellish my card I have simply added some gold Nuvo drops…

Happily Ever After – Pop Up Box Card

I wanted to make a pop up box card for a wedding or engagement…and I went straight for the MFT Knight In Shining Armor and Once Upon A Time stamp sets…these have been my all time most used stamps sets now…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by die cutting Kraft cardstock for the card base using Lawn Fawn box card pop up die and then assembled it to make the box….I die cut the panels from a wedding themed double sided printed cardstock…the best part was that I was able to use both sides here..

Once the base was ready and the panels were all adhered to the inside and outside of the box,I started to stamp and colour in all the images for my card…I then cut them out and also die cut a grassy border for the front as well as a couple of trees…

I adhered most images directly onto the inside panels and a couple of butterflies on thins acetate strips before adhering them to the panels..

Finally,I stamped the sentiment on a kraft card strip and adhered it to the front flap using adhesive foam squares and added a couple of butterflies above it as well…

So happy you stopped by my blog today…Hope you will have a fabulous and happy day ahead..!!

Trying Out The Block Watercolor Stamping Technique

Anyone who is a big fan of Jennifer McGuire would’ve seen or even already tried out this block stamping technique that she shared a tutorial for earlier this month….it is the simplest way to create a background and great for teaching kids as well…I did not do any heat embossing on my cards as I wanted to use die cuts on them….

For these cards,I made the background first and then decided later which colour to use for the card base…I started by cutting watercolour cardstock to size and then used various distress inks  to dab on the acrylic block…here I have used the following shades – peacock feather,mustard seed,picked raspberry and aged mahogany…I then spritzed some water on the block and stamped that onto the watercolour cardstock…making sure it doesn’t move,I added something heavy on top and left it for about 5 mins…

Once the top layer was completely dry,I die cut the word hello from it and adhered rest of the top layer to a pink card base..I die cut the word hello again from pink craft foam and layered that under the die cut word before adhering it back to the card…

I die cut two trees and coloured them using Distress Inks before adhering them the the card front…and finally I have used a few sequins to embellish this card..

For my second card I chose a long narrow stamping block and die cut the watercolor cardstock using large cross stitched rectangle die…I then dabbed distress inks onto this block…I have used seedless preserves,blueprint sketch,broken china salty ocean and tumbled glass here..spritzed it with water and stamped on the paper…how easy is that..??

Once dry,I adhered the top layer to a light blue card base and added a die cut word ‘congratulations’ on it..I used a gold foil cardstock for this…

I stamped a butterfly on vellum paper using wilted violet Distress Oxide ink and once dry,I cut it out and adhered it to the card front…

To embellish this card I have used some tiny gold star sequins..

Little Girl In The Meadows Birthday Card

I am so happy to share this card today….I usually find small dies cuts a bit too challenging so I try n stay away….but the little trees dies from MFT are just too cute and I had to create something lovely from it…
The card base is plain white and the top layer is textured light pink and has been die cut using the stitched border die….I used a smaller watercolour panel to create the hillside scene using distress inks,hillside border dies and trees dies….I also placed a little girl who seems to be sitting on the ground…
Finally I die cut a scalloped border using two consecutive dies and white cardstock and added it to the completed panel… once the panel was adhered to the top layer,I stamped the sentiment on a small banner and attached it to the card front…
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today…Hope you will have a great day ahead….!!

Thanks For All You Do

Today I am sharing a simple thank you card…but to make it a bit more attractive and to make the die cut trees stand out,I have placed them onto small mat layers…
The card base is made from gold cardstock and the top layer has been cut out from a bright red card stock…I then die cut the trees using the MFT Trees in the forest dies and coloured then in using distress inks…I placed these die cut first on a black background and layered it with gold cardstock…
Once these mats were placed onto the top layer,I stamped the sentiment directly onto the card using black ink…
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card…Have a blessed day today…!!
