Post#174 – Distress Inks,Stencils+Water Background Cards

I have followed a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire to create backgrounds for all these cards….I got quite excited by such a good result and went ahead and made a couple more cards using this technique…
Here is the link for the tutorial – Easy Distress Ink Backgrounds by Jennifer McGuire
It’s an excellent video so there is no need for me to write down much details….
I did however mix a bit of twinkling H2O watercolour in my water spritzer for a shiny look as I do not have any other kind of pre-bottled shimmer spritzer etc….
The cards are only lightly decorated as the background is the hero in all these cards….
Hope you liked these cards…
Do you have a favourite??Let me know…

Post#136 Angel Tree Ornament

Our Christmas tree always has a few handmade ornaments on it every year….most of them are made by my kids at school…but this idea was on Pinterest¬†and was made using the WRMK 1 2 3 Punch board…it seems to be quite a popular one as there were lots and lots of versions of the ‘bow angel’…
So you simply follow the instructions to make a bow…and the base needs to be cut in half and positioned downwards…a punched circle for the head and a small ribbon at the back hang the ornament…it’s quite easy to make and looks really cute…
Hope you liked it…

Post#132 Colourful Snowflakes Card

For today’s card,I wanted to step away from traditional Christmas colours but still keep the festive feel….
So I started with a beige base and rounded two sides of the card base…I selected a dark brown front panel and rounded two edges for this as well….then I glued die cut snowflakes in bright colours onto the front panel..
I added the sentiment near the base of the card and also added a gold rhinestone in the middle of each snowflake…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#61 Pink Butterflies Card

I think that adding a butterfly element to any card or craft project makes it a little bit more cheerful….Here I have done that by using stamps and dies…
On a light pink card base,the plain white top layer has been stamped with butterfly stamps in bubblegum dye ink…In the middle of the card I have attached three die cut butterflies…the top layer is in deep pink,the middle layer in embossed vellum paper and the bottom one from the same cardstock as the card base….
The sentiment is stamped and attached using adhesive squares….and just a few pink sequins have been added as embellishments..
Hope you liked this card…

Post#31 Gift Bag

This is a very basic gift bag made out of Kraft cardstock……It can be used for presents, party favors or even as packaging to share some yummy homemade cookies,snacks etc…

After making the bag,I folded the top down and held that in place with a ribbon…I hate it when the handles of a gift bag come off…so closing it like this prevents that from happening…

At the front of the bag I stamped a doily stamp with red ink and placed another smaller stamped image with dimensionals…

Hope you liked it.

Post#17 Bright Red Tag

The other day I saw a gift wrapped with newspaper as wrapping paper…..It looked really nice with bit of string wrapped around it….and the crafter in me instantly thought that a bright tag on that gift would’ve looked really eye catching…
So with that thought,I started on this tag…didn’t take too long for it to come together…
A die cut tag coloured with a bit of watercolour paints(my favourite these days)…a sentiment stamp at the top…some ribbon and rhinestones to finish the tag…
Hope you liked it.

Post#8 A Colourful Tag

Whenever I think of kids,I think of bright colours….so here’s a tag I made which would be just perfect on a present for a kid….or even someone vibrant and young at heart…
Tags don’t take long to make…and this one didn’t either….as soon as I had the colours for the banners chosen,it came together pretty quickly…
I used 2 base layers for the tag and embossed the top white layer with a chevron embossing folder….then attached the 5 banner strips….and then the gold and yellow butterflies….added a tiny stamped and punched sentiment near the bottom ..finally put on the ribbons and tadaaaa….the tag was ready…
Hope you liked the tag.
