Two Cute Piggy Cards – My 500th Blog Post

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog today…it’s my 500th blog post…it’s been two years of blogging for me and I’m amazed at how encouraging and lovely the cardmakers all over the world are and am thankful to all…


Now to the cards I’m sharing today…the piggy stamp I’ve used are from set that has been aptly named ‘Sow Much Cuteness’ by MFT Stamps….all the images are super cute and the sentiments are great as well…today I’m sharing two cards that I have made with this set..

For my first card I chose a white card base and a die cut dark blue top layer…I then used a self made cloud stencil and white pigment ink to create the cloud background on the blue top layer…this technique was shown by Jennifer McGuire in one of her tutorials – 6 Quick Stencil Techniques and it has taken me so long to try it out..
I then die cut a grassy border from lime green cardstock and adhered it to the base of the top layer…I stamped the sentiment using watermark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder and then adhered this top layer to  the card base…

On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the piggy images,coloured them in and cut them out before placing them on the card using some foam squares..I punched three small butterflies from pink glitter cardstock and used them to embellish my card…

For my second card I used a white card base as well as a white top layer….to create the scene of a jumping piggy on this card I first die cut clouds from blue and white glitter cardstock as well as a rainbow from white cardstock(which my younger daughter coloured in using Distress Inks)…once these were adhered to the top layer,I used a large stitched rectangle stencil to cut off the excess before adhering it to the card base…

Now all I had to do was add the coloured in piggy image using foam squares,stamp the sentiment and add a cute butterfly and my card was ready…

Unicorn In The Clouds – Birthday Card

For today’s card,I decided to use soft colours to give it a bit of a magical look…I also wanted to use Vellum for the clouds and am very happy with how that turned out..

I started with a white card base with a white die cut top layer as well…then using Distress Oxide inks mixed with water and smooshed and splattered them onto the top layer very lightly to create the background…I have used cracked pistachio,worn lipstick and broken china shades of Distress Oxide inks here…
Using the clouds border dies and some vellum paper,I die cut three pieces and sponged the edges with blue ink and them layered them onto the top layer….

On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped the unicorn image using black Versafine pigment ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder and then coloured it in and cut it out..I also went over the coloured image with my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen so it look even more magical and adhered it to the card front using craft foam…

I stamped the sentiment on the top right using black ink and adhered a few small purple coloured star sequins to embellish my card..

Here’s a close up shot of the Unicorn and the vellum clouds..

Pop Up Box Card – Wish BIG

I have made pop-up box cards before…and ruined more than I made because I mucked up the base design and it wouldn’t fold flat like it should…and that was mostly due to wrong measurements while scoring or cutting…so I usually gave up…and then Lawn Fawn created a die for this box card….so all I had to do was die cut and assemble the base and start on the other elements…how good is that..??

This is my first card with the die which is called Scalloped Box Card Pop Up die so I kept things fairly simple and decided to use the other Lawn Fawn products I own for this one..

I started with a lavender textured cardstock for the box…you have to die cut it two times and attach the tabs to create the box…so easy…I also die cut two panels from the same cardstock and adhered them to the inside of the box…these are the panels that will provide the base on which to adhere all the elements…
Using a polka dots pearlised printed paper and another DSP with similar colours, I die cut all the panels for the outside and the inside of the card…all these panel dies are also included in the die set…so that is one more thing that makes it super easy to create this box card…

The card base was now ready so I pulled out a few of my Lawn Fawn stamp sets and decided to use the fairies and birds for this one…I stamped,coloured them in and cut them out…I placed a couple of banners and die cut clouds for the card…it didn’t take too long to adhere the images to the card..I used strips of clear acetate to adhere the bird so it seems like they are flying…

The best part about this card is that it easily fits into a standard envelope as the folded size of this card is 5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″

You Make Me Oh So Happy

Unless I’m a hundred percent sure that something is completely ruined and cannot be used in any other project,I will not throw it away…it does take a bit more time to figure out a way to incorporate it into a new project but I find this quite fun too….mostly…ha ha..!! 😉

In today’s card I have managed to salvage a Distress ink background panel which I had created for another card but due to a major stamp masking error I couldn’t use it…since there was a good section of that panel which wasn’t ruined, I decided to use for this card…the distress inks that were used for this panel are worn lipstick,salty ocean,twisted citron and picked raspberry…I die cut the panel using a cloud die and placed it on the white top panel of this card using a bit of craft foam…
I stamped,coloured in and cut out the little girl image and placed it on the card….the sentiment has been stamped using watermark ink and heat embossed using a purple embossing powder..and finally I have used a few silver sequins to embellish this card…
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card today…Have a happy and blessed day…!!

Sending A Little Sunshine Your Way

I have made today’s card specifically for entering in the Scrapbook Boutique February 2017 Challenge…I had so much fun making a card for the December 2016 challenge and was waiting for the challenges to restart in this year..
The moodboard this time has a lot of beach/summer pics with lots of yellows and blues…and I really don’t have any stamps, images or dies for that theme so had to go through all my stamps and dies a few times to finally come up with this card….it would be a great card to send to cheer up a friend who is facing the harsh winter chill at the moment(while we have summers in Australia)…

The card base is plain white and the top layer has been cut to size from watercolour cardstock…I then used the puffy cloud border dies and placed them on the top layer and embossed with them so they look like waves…I have used Salty Ocean and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks to create the background on the top layer….
I stamped the sentiment on the top layer and heat embossed it using a copper coloured embossing powder…
On a separate piece of cardstock,I first stamped the seal image using Cool Graphite dye ink by Ranger and then re-stamped it using watermark ink and quickly heat embossed it using clear embossing powder…I also stamped the sun and cut it out as well….I placed the sun on the tip of the seal’s nose to look like its balancing a ball…
I’m glad you stopped by to take a look at my card today….you will find all the details of the challenge on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog…Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

The Golden Swans

Today’s card has been one of those cards where I have constantly changed my mind about everything on it….but thankfully in the end it worked out….
The card base is made from a printed blue cardstock and the top layer is same size as the front of the card but I have used a cloud border die at the top…this was the only way I could think of to create the clouds and not have too many layers on this card…
I then stamped the swans on the top layer using Versamark ink and heat embossed them using gold embossing powder….I have sponged in some distress inks to create the water and grass around the swans…
The sentiment has been stamped using red dye ink and I have used a few sequins in various sizes to embellish the card…
Thanks for stopping by today….Have lovely & blessed day ahead…!!
