Altenew Ranunculus – Love & Hugs

After using the Nuvo gold mousse for a few cards in which I tried out a paint like consistency and even thick consistency like an embossing paste,I wanted to try something ‘in-between’…so that was the idea for the background panel for this card…the main flower image is from the Altenew build-a-flower Ranunculus set…

I have two background panels for this card…there is a black panel on which I have embossed repeatedly with stitched border edge die and then I have a smaller kraft cardstock panel on which I  first die cut with a scalloped edge die and then used the grid stencil and Nuvo mousse to create this slightly textured look…I layered these two panels and adhered them to a Kraft cardstock card base…
I stamped the two flowers and leaves on a separate piece of white cardstock using the Altenew crisp die inks…for the first flower I used cotton candy,purple wine and puffy heart shades and for the second one I used peach perfect,coral berry and cosmic berry inks…I die cut them and adhered them to the card front…

I gold heat embossed the sentiment on a black rectangular label and layered it with a slightly larger red layer and adhered it to the card front…I have used a piece of back craft foam underneath for a bit of dimension…
To embellish my card I have applied just a few Nuvo gold drops…
I’m super glad you stopped by to take a look at my card today….Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

I Think…You Were Right

Today I’m sharing a kind of a simple yet cute apology card…the giraffe with his long neck in a knot is an image from Katzelkraft Stamps and I have used wild greenery dies for the background panel…the sentiment from Paper Smooches uplifters stamp set is just perfect for this card…

I started by creating the background panel for the giraffe…I die cut lots of leaves from a smooth bright green cardstock and adhered them to a panel cut to size from the same cardstock…I added this panel to a plain white card base and also added two strips of black glitter cardstock on each side…I stamped the sentiment directly on the card base using black ink…

I stamped the giraffe on a separate piece of white cardstock and coloured it in with my Spectrum Noir markers…I then cut it out and adhered it to the green panel using some adhesive foam squares…

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…

Bloom Where You Are Planted

I used to paint stripy backgrounds for my cards myself….and a lot of the times I had to paint all over or even bin them coz the lines would be way more wonky than acceptable…ha ha…so when Altenew released this watercolor stripes stencil,I was so happy coz the background for the card I’m sharing today would’ve been unpredictable otherwise… 😊😀

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by cutting white cardstock to size for the front panel of my card and then used the stencil and Distress Inks to create the background..I used the following shades – wilted violet,carved pumpkin,twisted citron and hickory smoke…I also splattered a bit of water and quickly dabbed it with a paper towel…

Once dry,I stamped the sentiment using black ink and then adhered this panel to a white card base…

On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped and coloured in the cactus and pots from a Honey Bee Stamp set called Stick with me using Gansai Tambi watercolours…once dry,I cut them out and adhered them to the card front with some adhesive foam…

To embellish my card I have simply added some black Nuvo drops…

You Inspire Me

I was so happy when Clearly Besotted stamps re-opened a few months ago…I love their stamps and I hadn’t tried any of their flower stamps yet…so I got this one with the poppies and a few sentiments..

I started with a top folding white card base and a white top layer as well…I then sponged in a few shades of green Distress Inks to cover this top layer…I have used forest moss,mowed lawn and twisted citron here…and before adhering this top layer to the card base,I embossed it using WRMK next level embossing folder…
On a separate piece of white cardstock – as wide as the card base – I stamped the poppy flowers image but that didn’t cover the width of the card so I masked the center image and stamped more flowers…
Now colouring these images was made slightly easy by the fact that one of the Derwent Inktense pencil shade is called Poppy Red…it is actually quite bright but I used just a bit of it to colour in the flowers and buds…

I carefully cut out the top part of this panel and adhered it to the card front using some craft foam in between…I stamped the sentiment label and adhered it as well..

To embellish my card I have used Nuvo drops as well as a gold string at the top…here is a close up shot of the poppies…

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…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

 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…

The texture and shine from the Nuvo liquid is really awesome and I am so glad I tried it out…

Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog today…Have a wonderful day ahead…!!

No Good Reason to Act Our Age

Most of my school time friends and I are fast approaching our milestone birthdays and we keep talking about it and make fun of how we will be counted as ‘old’ once we’ve reached that stage…so when I saw this Art Impressions stamp set,I couldn’t resist getting it…was laughing all the time I was making this card…!!

I started with a top folding Kraft cardstock card base and then cut a smaller front panel from black cardstock…on this front panel,I printed the spotty pattern using white pigment ink and a stencil..
I then die cut a panel from watercolour cardstock using mini scallop rectangle die and stamped the big top stamp set to create the rays…I used Fossilised Amber Distress Oxide ink to stamp it and then sprayed plenty of water so the a lighter colour spreads to the unstamped section of the watercolour panel…once dry,I stamped the sentiment in black ink and adhered this panel to the card front…
On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped  and coloured in the ‘cool lady’ on the skateboard…I cut the image out and used adhesive foam underneath before placing it on the card…and finally I used black Nuvo drops to embellish my card…
Do you like sending funny cards to your friends??I think this one would definitely get a good laugh from quite a few of mines…Thank you for stopping by my blog today…hope you will ave a fabulous day ahead…happy crafting..!!

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..!! 🙂

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

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…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

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…

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…

Somebunny Thinks You’re Special

I was just trying out the Pale Aqua watercolour(no.50)from my Gansai Tambi watercolour set to test out how it looked and made some diagonal stripes with a wide brush on a piece of white cardstock…I liked the result and used it as a background for my card….

I chose a kraft cardstock to make the card base and die cut three sections from green cardstock using the Lawn Fawn stitched hillside borders dies….I layered these sections on the painted top layer…

I stamped the little bunny and chick on a separate piece of cardstock and coloured them in before cutting them out and placing them onto the card…I have applied some glossy accents on them for a bit of shine…
I stamped the sentiment on the top layer using black ink and stamped a couple of red hearts as well….and finally I have used black Nuvo Crystal drops to embellish this card…

Just Saying Hello

The ‘Beautiful Day’ stamp set by Altenew always gives such great results…whether you choose to do the stamp layering with it or simply use the outline stamps…and without much effort you will create a wonderful element for your card or project…

The card base for today’s card is plain white and I have used a pink mat layer under the white top layer which I have embossed using a lattice embossing folder….
I stamped the flower outline images on a separate piece of cardstock using pink dye ink and cut them out and placed them on the card.I used a piece of craft foam under one of the flowers for a bit of dimension…then using leaf dies and glitter cardstock,I die cut a few leaves and tucked them under the flowers…
The sentiment has been stamped on a small strip of pink cardstock and I have used Nuvo crystal drops to embellish my card….

Happy Valentine’s Day..!!

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.– Lao Tzu
My card for Valentines is a really cute one using a stamp set by Jane’s Doodles called Seamus…I just love the cute sheep images in this set…
I chose a vibrant orange cardstock for my card base and die cut watercolor paper using the cross stitch rectangle die to create the top layer…I then used distress inks to create a vibrant background for this card…the inks shades I have used are – picked raspberry,abandoned coral and mustard seed..
On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped and coloured in the two sheep images before cutting then out and placing them onto the card…
The sentiment has been heat embossed using red embossing powder and I have used white Nuvo crystal drops to embellish this card…

I made another quick card…and I have used metallic markers and a ruler to create the background…

The card base is made from gold cardstock and I have used black cardstock for the top layer….on the top layer,I created the pattern using some coloured metallic marker and then stamped hearts all over which I heat embossed with gold embossing powder…I have also splattered a bit of gold paint on it…

I then die cut a large heart from gold foil cardstock and then used the die cut inlay technique by Jennifer McGuire to add the sentiment on the gold heart…before adhering the heart to the card front,I added a bit of gold string under it…

Thanks A Bunch

Every now and then I challenge myself to make a card which is not too colourful and looks classy…as I know that even though I love making them,not everyone likes bright cards…I was very careful with this card and quite happy with the result as well…
The card base is plain white and I have cute plain green cardstock at an angle for the top layer…I also embossed the top layer using the WRMK next level quilted embossing folder and adhered it to the card base…
On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped the Altenew Dahlia blossoms…it’s a layering stamp set and saves you the time that you would spend on colouring in…once stamped,I cut these flowers and leaves out and placed them on the card…
To embellish the card I have used bottle green and ebony black Nuvo crystal drops..

Two Watercoloured Flower Cards

The cards I’m sharing today are my first few attempts at trying out the no line colouring technique..I have been very curious about it and wanted to see if I could get a hang of it….I would not consider these as examples of this technique…coz I don’t think I got the right results….but I did like the results and made a good couple of cards from them…
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade Card by PriCreated
My first card has a bright pink card base and a watercolour paper top layer…I used a light pink distress ink and stamped the flower images on the top layer…then using a pink and green watercolour pencil I traced all the stamped edges…I also lightly coloured the stamped images and used a water brush to colour in the stamps…

I stamped the large sentiment stamp using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder and rounded two opposing corners of my card…I have embellished the card using tiny pink and green sequins…
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade Card by PriCreated

Here is my second go at the same technique…the card base is lavender and the top layer has been cut to size using watercolor paper…

I have again used a very light distress ink to stamp the large roses and a couple of leaves….then using a water brush and Peerless watercolors,I coloured in the all the stamped images…

I stamped and cut out the sentiment and placed it on the card…and to embellish the card I used Nuvo crystal drops…
