Card For An Adorable Baby

I see a lot of attractive night sky and space kind of backgrounds that card makers have been sharing on their blogs and Instagram etc…and I really wanted to give it a try…once the background was ready I was unsure whether it needed to be a bit darker or not…and because I was going to make a baby card,I didn’t want it any darker than this…

The card base is plain white and I have die cut the top layer from watercolour cardstock using the large rectangle cross stitch die….then I used Distress Inks to create the background…I have used the following inks – shaded lilac,wilted violet,blueprint sketch,seedless preserves and hickory smoke…I splattered some water and some white paint on this panel for effect…
I stamped the word ‘adorable’ right at the top and heat embossed it using silver embossing powder…I die cut the word baby using large alphabet dies – first from white cardstock and then from silver glitter cardstock and glued them together and placed them on the card…I also added a silver heat embossed sentiment banner that says ‘Bundle Of Joy’…
On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the moon with sleeping baby,coloured it in and cut it out then placed it on the card…I added a few stars that I punched from silver glitter cardstock as well….
Thank you for your visit today…I’m glad you stopped by my blog…Have a wonderful day ahead…!!

Stars Birthday Card

Today I’m sharing another card that I tried out for a birthday boy/guy…it has no flowers,no embellishments and no cute things on it….takes a while to form an idea but I’m glad I am able to make one or two cards every now and then for boys too….

The card base is made from silver cardstock(looks grey but it isn’t)…then on a separate large piece of silver cardstock,I started adhering die cut stitched star frames to make a background for the card…I have used blue,orange and purple foil cardstock for these die cuts…
Once the background was ready,I used a large stitched rectangle die to cut out the front panel for the card…I adhered this panel straight onto the card front…I stamped the sentiment on a small rectangle that I had die cut from orange foil cardstock and then layered it with a larger silver rectangle and placed these onto the card using foam squares…
Thank you so much for visiting my blog…hope you liked the card I shared today…have a blessed and happy day ahead..!!

Celebrate Your Day

I love adding butterflies on my cards and while going through the pictures of the latest cards on my Pinterest board I realised that I hadn’t made a card using butterfly stamps or dies on it lately…so I decided to make one… 🙂
The card base is made from textured peach coloured cardstock and the top layer is white…on the top layer I have used a stencil and distress inks to print the background…I then stamped the sentiment on the top layer using black ink…half of the sentiment has been stamped on a tiny banner…
I die cut a few butterflied using foil and glitter silver cardstock and placed them on the card…I also adhered a few rhinestones to embellish the card….
Thanks for visiting my blog today…Have a great day ahead….!!

Birthday Hugs Card

I don’t buy too much Stampin Up! products,but when I do – I usually get a few extra goodies from my demonstrator….last time I got the Shine On double sided DSP with some matching cardstock in a kit and I held on to most of the papers for a long time until I got a good enough idea for a card…I have a bad habit of saving( read hoarding) the ‘good’ papers – which I’m trying to change…. 🙂
The card base is plain white and the top layer is the plain aqua green which I die cut using the stitched rectangle dies…the top layer is a Kraft base with silver foil print…I die cut that panel using a smaller one of the rectangle die….
Once all the layers were in place,I die cut the word ‘hugs’ a few times using the same blue cardstock as the middle panel and white glitter cardstock as well and layered them up before placing onto the card….then I cut two silver banners and stamped the sentiments on it and adhered them above and below the die cut word to create a full message…
Finally I die cut a few heart shaped balloons from red glitter cardstock to decorate the card…
Cheers to breaking bad habits… 🙂

Happy Happy Happy Birthday To You Card

I’m sure it happens with most crafters….you think of an idea and get very excited about it….but when you are half way through,things happen and you don’t get the result you had envisioned….at this moment you make a decision either to scrap or salvage….and considering how very costly craft supplies are(in Australia at least),I’m sure most crafters in this situation try their very best to salvage the project….
So here’s how this card went…..I started with a red card base and a white top layer….on the top layer I stamped a few different patterned circle images with versamark ink and heat embossed them using black embossing powder….I noticed that some circles did not emboss properly but it wasn’t a big deal so I carried on and used watercolours to colour in the all the circles….the result wasn’t that great…maybe I should’ve used a single colour…anyways,I decided to carry on and not scrap it…
So I die cut a Vellum sheet using stitched rectangle die same size as the top layer and adhere it using brads on all four corners….I then die cut the happy word 3 times using red glitter cardstock and adhere them to the vellum…then I cut a silver banner and stamped the words ‘Birthday to you!’ on it and adhered it below the happy words…Finally I added a few silver star sequins and my card was complete….
What do you think about this card??Do you like how it turned out in the end??Let me know…

Post#153 Anniversary Card

I find it quite difficult with some cards to click pictures that show all the elements of the card clearly….I have clicked countless pictures of this card and constantly adjusted my camera and light but one or the other element was always out of focus…and it’s only when you look closely,you will see a silver string wrapped around the heart….
The card base is plain white with a silver layer and a white top layer which has been embossed using Love Spun embossing folder….I have then placed a large glitter die cut heart on it which has a silver string wrapped around it….and then  I added small punched out elements on it as well as a ‘Happy Anniversary’ banner…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#143 Birthday Hugs Shaker Card

After trying out this shaker card technique a couple of times with circle frame dies,I wanted to try creating a shaker card with a large heart frame….

The card base is plain orange with a silver first layer and an orange top layer…two sides of all these layers have been rounded with a punch…

To create the main heart frame,I used the two largest Kaisercraft nesting hearts dies….but since I needed to die cut more heart shapes in the same size,I used Washi tape to keep the dies together….this way all the frames were exactly the same shape…there are seven frames cut from white cardstock and stuck together to create a well to house the shaker elements..

Inside the frame,I have adhered the die cut word ‘hugs’ from glitter cardstock and stamped the words ‘sending birthday’ above it…and then all that was required was to add a bit of sequins for the shaker….

There is an acetate layer glued on top to close the shaker….and the topmost heart frame has been cut out of glitter cardstock….

I really like this bright  and glittery card…hope you do too…

Post#138 HAPPY CHRISTMAS CARD

It’s Christmas day today so here’s wishing you a very Merry Christmas and hoping that you will feel this happiness all year round…!!!
Today I’m sharing a card with light blue base and a vellum top layer which has been heat embossed with silver snowflakes….to attach the vellum firmly to the card,I used a strip of silver glitter cardstock on which I used a zig zag border punch….
The sentiment is a die cut word happy from silver cardstock…and the word Christmas is stamped and heat embossed with silver embossing powder on a smalls trip of blue cardstock…
I also glued a few dark blue rhinestones in the center of all the snowflakes…
Hope you liked this card…Have a lovely day today…

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#117 – Anniversary Card Gold & Silver

Today I’m sharing an Anniversary card in gold and silver….I wanted to try gold and silver together and see how it looks…It could’ve been finished a bit better but I still think it looks quite good…
So I started by stamping circles of various sizes with gold and silver pigment ink on vellum paper…once that dried I placed it on a silver top layer and it is held in place by silver and gold strings that I wound around both the layers…then I adhered it to the silver card base….
For the sentiment I die cut two circles using the stitched circle dies in gold and silver and stamped on the silver circle….I attached these near the base of the card….
Hope you like it…

Post#78 Earrings Gift Pouch

I am quite excited to share today’s creation with you…..It’s my very own creation using the Tag Topper Punch….I have been making hook earrings for a long time now…..I love wearing them as well as making them…so this time when I made a few sets I sat down to think about how to create packaging for these earrings…
One look at the tag punch and I had my answer….I cut out long 2″ strips of gold and silver cardtstock and punched on one end of the strips….I folded the top flap down…..then I decided how tall/long I wanted these pouches and scored and folded the base….I also scored another 1/4″ from the base score line so that there of a bit of room for the earrings…
These pouches now needed something for the earrings to hook onto…one option was to punch two holes but that meant the hooks would be visible from the back of the pouch and wouldn’t look nice…so I decided to adhere a strip of cardstock on the inside of the pouch which would easily provide the base to hang the hooks onto…
I added a few punched flowers on the front….and finally I threaded a ribbon through to close the pouch….
I’m really hoping you liked my creation…..

Post#57 Square 4×4 Card

I remember when I bought my first few packs of cardstock…..they were all printed ones….and I loved making cards from them….but I slowly moved on to plain cardstock when I realised that my designs stood out better on them…but still every now and then I keep trying out printed cardstock for a card base….
This card has a very nice geometrical pattern in grey white and black and also has silver glitter lines on it…..so I went with the theme and punched out four squares from silver cardstock and rounded two sides only….then I stamped and heat embossed three of those squares with silver embossing powder….the fourth one I left blank and put sentiment ‘Hello’ embossed with black embossing powder…
Hope you liked it..
