Forever And Always – Time Out Challenge #106

It’s the second month of autumn here now, but  while making this card today I got a happy and spring kind of feeling…I have watercoloured the main image of my card which I have created for Time Out Chalenge #106…this one is a photo challenge and the Time Out DT have such gorgeous cards for inspiration…

This is the image provided for the challenge and I have been able to incorporate the yellow,green and aqua colours from this image…and to add a touch of gold (the forks in the table setting), I added some gold splatters in the background..

On a piece of watercolor cardstock cut to size for the front panel,I stamped the image using Versafine black onyx ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder….I then used Spectrum Aqua markers to watercolour the image…I have used bud green,meadow green and aquamarine shades of markers with a water brush for colouring…

I covered the painted image with some scrap paper and splattered some Nuvo gold mousse mixed with water…once dry,I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment as well and adhered the front panel to a plain white card base…
To embellish my card I have used some sea breeze Nuvo jewel drops and to add some shimmer to the flower image,I applied some Nuvo sparkle pen all over it…

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…

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… 🙂

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

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…

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…!!

Scrapbook Boutique October 2017 Challenge -Three Cards

For this month’s challenge over at The Scrapbook Boutique Blog,I started with two ideas(as usual – just in case)…but while I was making my first card,I left my supplies out coz I had another idea pop up in my head…so after I made my second card,I started the third one which took just under 10 mins to create…

This is the moodboard for this month and I loved creating cards for the pink and gold theme..

For my first card I die cut the front panel from watercolour cardstock…I then used the Altenew watercolor strips stencil to create the background for my card…once dry,I adhered this panel to a plain white card base…

On a separate piece of white card cardstock,I stamped the flower and leaf images using picked raspberry Distress Oxide ink and then heat embossed the images using clear embossing powder…I then used my water brush and coloured in the images with the same shade of Distress Oxide ink I used for stamping…I did not want to use green for the leaves and stems so I used nuvo mousse to colour them gold…

After I die cut all the images,I adhered them onto my card front…I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on a small label and adhered it just above the flowers…and finally,to embellish my card I have used lots of Nuvo jewel drops…

I have a whole lot of Azaleas in full bloom in my garden these days and my favorite one is the deep pink one which I can see from my craft room window..

My second card has a paisley gold embossed background…these stamps are from Simon Says Stamp Henna Patterns stamp set and I have coloured them in using a light pink aquarelle brush pen and my water brush..I have used picked raspberry Distress Oxide ink to lightly sponge the edges of my front panel and then adhered it to the card base…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

For the sentiment I die cut the words ‘wish’ and ‘big’ from gold foil cardstock as well as pink craft foam using two different die sets and adhered them onto my card front..and to embellish my card I have used gold star sequins…

While I was writing this post,I \noticed that the dot of the ‘i’ has rolled over in the second picture…thankfully it was still in the card so I could adhere it back…

Now to my third card…it was inspired by the image of the pink teacups with the gold rims in the moodboard..and since this idea came to me while I was making the first card,I used all the same supplies for it…

I cut a watercolour cardstock panel for the card front and sponged in the edges using picked raspberry Distress Oxide ink…I spritzed some water for effect and then splattered some nuvo mousse,making sure to leave the centre part of the panel clear for the sentiment and the tea cup…

I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder and then adhered this panel to a white card base…
On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the teacup with picked raspberry oxide ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder…I used the same ink and gold mousse to colour in the image and then cut it out and placed it under the sentiment using adhesive craft foam..
This card did not need any embellishments so I used my Spectrum Noir glitter pen over the teacup iamge for a bit of shine…

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…
