Word Window Card & Sentiment Backdrop Card

Continuing my technique learning theme from yesterday, I tried out two cards following tutorials by Jennifer McGuire….here are the results…
For my first card I followed her Word Window Card tutorial….I have used a lavender card base and a white top layer…I stamped the flower and leaves stamps on the top layer and coloured them in using Peerless watercolors….
I then used a Happy Anniversary word die and die cut the word on the top layer as well as the front of the card…I adhered a strip of acetate behind the top layer die cut area and then adhered the top layer to the card base…and the card was ready with a see through word element…
I have used a lot of clear sequins to embellish this card…

For my second card I followed Jennifer’s tutorial for creating Sentiment Backdrops…this is a great technique for creating cards with no layers….

On a white card base,I stamped the large cupcake stamp and coloured it in…I also stamped the sentiment using black ink just under the cupcake stamp…I then masked the cupcake and used green dye ink to repeatedly stamp the main sentiment on the card…I used my MISTI for this card as it makes the repeat stamping process much easier….

Then all I had to do was to remove the mask and embellish with a few green sequins and the card was ready…

B & W Birthday Card

I thought I couldn’t make a cute card using just black ink and no colours at all….and then I proved myself wrong…hah…!!
I started with a black card base and a white top layer the same size as the card base…I first stamped a border and the sentiment so that I don’t end up with no space to stamp the sentiment on….then I pulled out a few of my Paper Smooches stamp sets and started stamping the images directly onto the top layer using black ink…
After adhering the top layer to the card base,I added a strip of black glitter cardstock at the top and my card was ready…
Thank you so much for stopping by today to take a look at my card….Have lovely & blessed day ahead…!!

Lawn Fawn Critters – Adorable Elephants

Today’s card is bright and colourful….my favorite kind of card….I liked the elephant image from Lawn Fawn stamps so much that I decided to use my mini MISTI to create a mirror image for this card…coz what’s better than one cute elephant..??Two cute elephants…!!  🙂
The card base is plain pink and I have used watercolor cardstock for the top layer….I used pink and orange shades of distress inks to cover the top layer and then used an embossing folder and water spritzer (instead of stamp and ink) to create the background….once it was dry,I stamped the sentiment using black ink….
On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped and coloured in the two elephant images then cut them out and placed them on the card…I also die cut a heart using red glitter cardstock and placed it behind the elephants’ heads….finally I adhered a few silver sequins in various sizes to embellish the card…

Birthday Hello Card

My last card was a bright one and I wanted to make another bright one with lots of colours in it….there is not much technique in this card but I had a whole lot of fun creating a colourful background for today’s card…
The card base is plain white and the top layer has been die cut using the cross stitched rectangle die and watercolour cardstock…then I used a paint brush and simply dabbed on various colours from my Peerless watercolours set….
Using an orange foil cardstock, I die cut the word ‘hello’ and a speech bubble….I stamped the sentiment on the speech bubble before placing it on the top layer…and finally I have added a few orange sequins as embellishments…
I’m glad you stopped by to take a look at my card….Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

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…!!

Birthday Wishes Cards

So I sat down with a rough sketch for a card but couldn’t decide on what colours to use for the card base and top layer….I tried out two different combinations and here they are…
For the first card I have used a black card base and a lavender top layer and for the second card I used a purple card base and a white top layer…I then stamped the background flower image on lavender paper with black ink and on white paper with purple ink….I also attached a strip each of black and purple glitter cardstock on both the top layers…
The mini MISTI stamping tool made it so easy and quick to use the layering flower and leaves stamps from Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set…and once the stamping was done,I quickly cut them out and placed them on the card…The sentiment has been stamped on thin strips of cardstock and I have used a few orange and black sequins to embellish the card…

Beautiful Peony Anniversary Card

Layering stamps have made things quite a bit easy for the artistically challenged crafters like me….I had my eye on the Altenew Beautiful Day Stamp set for a while and I finally bought it….the Peony flower is so beautiful and there are layered leaves and a few more stamps in this set…
I chose a black card base and a watercolor paper cardstock….I first stamped the flower and masked it before stamping the leaves and the tiny flower bunches…once that was done,I masked the leaves as well and used a light blue shade of Peerless watercolor to fill up all the white space on the top layer…
I heat embossed the sentiment on a black banner using white embossing powder and placed it on the top layer….I added a few pink sequins to embellish the card….

Birthday Pansies Card

Winters are officially ending in Australia today so Spring starts tomorrow…yaaayyy…..what’s not to like in spring….longer days,lovely weather,lots of flowers everywhere,icecreams,the beach….
For today’s card I have used vellum paper and gold embossing powder for the pansy flower and leaves from the Summer Flowers stamp set and I just loved the results….
I used a plain black card base and a very light blue top layer,which I have die cut using the stitched rectangle die…Using Versamark ink I stamped the pansy and leaf stamp repeatedly on a sheet of vellum paper and heat embossed them using gold heat embossing powder…
Before cutting out the flowers and leaves,I coloured them in using my Spectrum Noir markers…I reversed the flowers and leaves and coloured on the back side instead of the front as the markers might spoil the heat embossing…
I stamped the sentiment using white pigment ink on a black strip of cardstock and placed it on the top layer and placed the flowers below it and just one flower above…I have also used a few purple sequins to embellish the card…

Bright Marigolds Birthday Card

Hmmmm….so are these Zinnia or Marigold flowers???I always thought they were Marigolds but some stampers have referred to them as Zinnias…I tried to look up the website of Inspired by Stamping for more details but they have removed the listing as these stamps are not being manufactured anymore…
On a black card base I have used a white watercolour paper top layer….I created a couple of masks for the flowers before I started stamping…I used black ink to stamp the flowers and the sentiment and while the masks were still in place,I used green inks to stamp the leaves…
I used Peerless watercolours to colour in the flowers and a few gold sequins to embellish the card…
Thanks for visiting my blog today…Have a great day ahead….!!

Summer Flowers by Inspired by Stamping

Happy Birthday Flowers Card

Going through all my stamps today, I pulled out the  Summer Flowers stamp set….it was released about three years back by Inspired by Stamping and has been a favourite of mine…I decided to make a few cards using this stamp set and here’s the first one…
The card base is plain white and the top layer is a very light mint colour cardstock which I have die cut using the largest rectangle stitched die…I stamped the sentiment directly onto the top layer using black ink…
On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped the flower three times and coloured them in before cutting them out….I also die cut a few leaves from the Wild Greenery die set and decided not to colour those in…I placed all the leaves and flowers on the top layer and the card was ready…
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card….Have lovely & blessed day ahead…!!

You Did It…!!

It’s simply great when you can make a card from very limited supplies…complicated cards challenge you but simple cards are equally challenging…
For today’s card I chose a plain blue card base…the top layer was plain white on which I lightly sponged Mermaid Lagoon distress ink all over…I then used a stencil and used the same distress ink to print the pattern to create the background….I stamped a banner and sentiment with black ink and placed it on the top layer…
On a separate piece of cardstock I have stamped,coloured in and cut out the image of the little girl standing on the books…and I have used a few white rhinestones to embellish the card…

Colourful Congratulations Card

Today I am sharing a colourful card that took next to no time to create….all I had to do was to repeat stamp the large sentiment a few times…I was going to call it the rainbow card but my daughters pointed out that the colours Yellow and Indigo are missing so it doesn’t have all the rainbow colours…kids these days…ha ha… 🙂
I started with a bright yellow card base and a white top layer….I chose the word ‘congratulations’ from the Avery Elle Sentimental stamp set and repeat stamped it in 6 different colours…I then adhered the top layer to the card base…
On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped,coloured in and cut out the little girl image and placed it on the card….I have used clear sequins in various sizes to embellish the card…
Do you like simple and quick cards??I like them a lot….

Hello Long Lost Friend Card

I really like how bright colours stand out on a black background…..especially if its a distress ink panel or top layer in a card….I think I will be using a black card base a lot more from now on….at first I didn’t use it that much thinking how will most people manage to write their messages on the inside of a black card….but now I see white gel pens easily and cheaply available everywhere…so that should not be a problem at all…
The card base is plain black and the top panel has been die cut from a stitch rectangle die using watercolour cardstock…I then pulled out a large acrylic stamping block and randomly dabbed a lot of different distress inks onto it and then spritzed it with some water…I quickly transferred the watery ink to the die cut panel and heat set it….
I have used gold foil cardstock to die cut the word hello and a small strip to stamp the rest of the sentiment on…I have also placed two black die cut chevron bits as the only embellishments on this card…
Thanks for visiting today…Happy crafting…!!
