Two Cards For Scrapbook Boutique September 2017 Challenge

So yet again I got pretty excited about this month’s challenge at the Scrapbook Boutique Blog and made two cards…For my first card I was inspired by the clouds and the white heart in the moodboard and used a cloud stencil and a heart shaped leaf stamp to create it…and my second card is an interactive shaker card with a very cute cat image from Paper Smooches..

To create my first card,I started with a white front panel and stamped and heat embossed the leaf images at the bottom of the panel…I then coloured in the leaves using blueprint sketch Distress Ink and once dry I created a mask to cover these images so I could create the background next…

I used MFT mini clouds stencil and Distress Inks to create the cloudy background…I used salty ocean and blueprint sketch shades here…

On a piece of blue foil cardstock,I stamped the sentiment using white pigment ink….once dry,I used the coordinating die and a banner die to die cut the sentiment and placed it onto the card front using some sticky craft foam underneath for dimension…

I adhered this front panel to a white card base and then added a few clear confetti to embellish it…I also used my Spectrum Noir glitter pen to add some shine to the leaves…

The second card I created is a bit of fun as I die cut a flap in the front to hide the shaker underneath…I was inspired by the cat image in the moodboard to create this card…I started by die cutting watercolour cardstock for the card front using a large stitched rectangle die…I also die cut a flap in the front…

I stamped and coloured in the cute cat image on the flap and masked it before I started to colour in the rest of the background using Distress Inks…I have used chipped sapphire,blueprint sketch and broken china shades here…I heat embossed the sentiment and also sprinkled water all over this panel for effect…

For the shaker element of my card,I first stamped the same cat upside down on the card base so it seems to be peeking and then masked it before applying some Distress Inks in the area that area…I used tumbled glass and salty ocean here..

I stamped a second sentiment here and then set about creating the shaker well using some foam tape and clear acetate…I filled up the shaker with some red heart sequins and then adhered the front panel to the card base..

I have used white Nuvo Drops to embellish my card…

Two Cards Using Paper Smooches Cuties – And A Card From A Friend

Today I decided to make a clean card with a simple message and a sweet image….and not too many colours or textures…and then I wanted to make another simple card using the swipe stamping technique shown by Jennifer McGuire….also,a new friend has surprised me with a card and I was so happy to receive something so beautiful…I’m sharing a pic of her card too.. 🙂

For my first card,the card base has been made from a textured light grey cardstock and the top layer has been die cut from watercolour cardstock using Avery Elle pierced rectangle die….I created a mask using one of the Nestabilities Labels 1 die and placed it on the top layer…I then sponged in weathered wood and hickory smoke Distress inks in this masked section…
I stamped,coloured in and die cut the cute dog image from Paper Smooches Woofers and Tweeters stamp set and placed it on the coloured in section…I stamped the sentiment on a white die cut label and placed it on a larger blue die cut label using foam squares…Finally I added a few silver sequins to embellish this card…

For my second card,I chose a plain white base and a bright blue mat layer…the top layer is white again and I have used the same two stamps with various dye inks to create the background…the swiping technique is pretty easy…to get this textured kind of stamped image all you have to do is ink the stamp and swipe it across the ink pad and quickly stamp it on the paper…so easy…I think in the past I may have un-intentionally used this technique and thrown away the result… 🙂
On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped the little chick,coloured it in and cut it out…I then heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on a blue strip and layered it with a strip of purple glitter cardstock…I used the slightly wider strips on the opposite side and placed the little chick on top…
A month or so back,I had sent a birthday card to a new crafty Instagram friend Zsofia…she’s a talented crafter and a blogger(safsafdesign)… and imagine my surprise when I opened my letterbox to check the post earlier today…this gorgeous card with a sweet message inside was there for me….
Thank you Zsofia….your card is sitting on my desk at the moment…looking very pretty…and inspiring me..!!

You’re Purrfect – Two Cards

Going through my stamps,I realised that on two of the stamp sets by different brands I had the same sentiment and a cute cat image…so I decided to make two cards using these…
For the first card I have used the You’re Purrfect stamp set by Clearly Besotted….I started with a white card base and a plain white top layer…on the top layer I first applied three different distress inks very lightly and then using the same colours and a stencil,I applied the distress inks again….a bit darker this time…
On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped,coloured in and cut out the kitten and cushion and placed it on the center of the card…Finally I stamped the sentiment and adhered a tiny red heart and a few sequins on the card…

For my second card I chose a bright pink card base and a white top layer…I stamped the cute cat image from Paper Smooches Chubby Chums stamp set and masked it with a slightly bigger mask than the stamped image…then I lightly sponged around the image using Picked Raspberry distress ink…

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment and added some pink sequins and tiny rhinestones to embellish the card….

Party Time

Whats a party without party hats..??So I made little party hats for the owl and chick and decided to create a bright and sparkly background for today’s card…
The card base is light pink and I die cut watercolor paper to size and created the background using various distress inks…I then punched a few 1″ circles from gold glitter cardstock and stuck them onto the top layer….lastly, using the largest rectangular stitched die,I created the border and well as cut off the excess from the gold circles..
After stamping the sentiment directly onto the top layer,I placed the coloured in and cut out images of the owl and the chick…
Thanks a lot for visiting my blog today…Have a happy and crafty day…!!
