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…!!

Princess And Unicorn Birthday Card

Distress inks have been my absolute favorite to create backgrounds for my cards…and now there are Distress Oxide inks as well…which are somewhat similar…yet quite different…if you know what I mean….ha ha…and I’ve been experimenting quite a bit with these new inks too..

For today’s card I chose a bright pink card base and a die cut watercolour cardstock top layer…the large stitched rectangle die from Lawn Fawn die-cuts it the same size as my card front and gives it a nice finished look that I like…
I then used Altenew snowing stamp set and Distress Oxide inks to stamp all over the top layer…this stamp creates small specks and dots of snow and it was perfect for today’s experiment…I have used worn lipstick and spiced marmalade ink shades and as soon as the stamping was done I used my spritzer to spray water on it from a distance..loved watching the inks dissolve and spread around a bit..

On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the cute princess,a little bird,butterflies and the unicorn from ‘Once upon a time’ stamp set by MFT…after colouring in these images,I cut them out leaving a small white border around the images…

I stamped the sentiment on the top layer using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder…just above the sentiment,I placed three die cut silver clouds and adhered the unicorn on top using some foam squares…I adhered the rest of the images as well and my card was ready..

Here’s a close up shot of my card…

Pop-up Hydrangeas – Birthday Card For Me

I have chosen a few of my favorite things to create a card that I’m sharing with you on my birthday today….other than Carnations,Hydrangeas are my favorite flowers so I chose the Altenew Garden Hydrangeas stamp set for today’s card…

Distress inks are another favorite of mine so I made a colourful background using them…I also like using gold and silver so I have used both…and since I love giving surprises and what better than a pop up card for that…!!

The card base is plain white 4″x 7 and has a slightly smaller insert for the pop- up section…to create the simple front of the card, I first splattered some metallic gold paint and let it dry…I then die cut the word ‘wishes’ from silver foil cardstock and stamped the word ‘birthday’ on a strip of gold foil cardstock…I have also added a few pink enamel dots as embellishments..

I then started on the pop-up insert section…first I sponged in lots of Distress Inks to create the bright background…I have used the following shades – evergreen bough,twisted citron,mowed lawn,salty ocean,blueprint sketch and peacock feather…I then used a pop up die to create the pop up base and splattered some gold paint…I also stamped the sentiment on one corner using black ink…
On two separate pieces of watercolor paper,I simply covered them with twinkling H2O watercolour paint…once dry,I stamped the Hydrangea outlines using watermark ink and heat embossed them using silver embossing powder…since this is a layering stamp set,I stamped one of the layers with watermark ink again and heat embossed that with gold embossing powder…I did the same for the leaves before cutting out all these elements and adhering them onto the 3 pop up sections on the card insert….

Many Thanks Card

I’m very excited to share this card today….it didn’t take long to create it and I am pretty happy with the result myself….
I started with a light green card base and a plain white top layer…the coloured panel on top is actually a piece of white cardstock which is a left over from die cutting or a negative as some people call it…and I have simply coloured it in using various shades of green and yellow distress inks…I then cut a piece of vellum same size as the panel and adhered them both onto the white top layer…I have wrapped some silver string across the top layer before adhering it to the card base…
The sentiment is stamped and silver heat embossed on a small white banner and I have layered it with a larger green banner…before attaching the banner onto the card,I die cut two leaves from silver foil cardstock and glued them to the card…
I have used just a few silver rhinestones as embellishments…

Paris Cityscape Card

After making a hello card using the Sydney cityscape stamp a few days back,I kept my stamp set on my desk so I could think of something similar(yet different)for another card…I finally chose the Paris cityscape stamp from the set to make this card…

The card base is a very light grey and I have used watercolour paper for the top layer….to create the background I have used four different distress inks…I wanted to give it the effect of the sky after the  sun has set(I tried to!!)…

I then stamped the Paris stamp with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder…I did the same for the sentiment and the stars stamps…and finally,I punched two hearts from red glitter cardstock and placed them above the sentiment…

Feathers And Watercolour Thank You Card

In today’s card I have used watercolours for the background and have coloured in the die cuts with them as well….
The card base is made from textured lavender cardstock…and the top layer is made from watercolour paper on which I have used three different colours to create the background..once that was dry I have also stamped on it with small stamps and wrapped a silver string around it and adhered it to the card base…
On a separate piece of paper I stamped the feather image three times with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with silver embossing powder….I coloured in the images with watercolours,cut them out and placed them on the card…
Finally I stamped the sentiment on a strip of silver foil cardstock and placed it above the feathers using adhesive foam squares…
Hope you’ll have a wonderful crafty day ahead…Happy crafting…

Post#175 Sweet & Lovely Card

I had thought of trying out this colour combination towards the end of last year….but it looked too Halloween-y at that time…Grey,Orange & Black look great together….and here’s my card using these colours…
The card base is light grey and the top layer is orange….I have used a corner punch to round off all four corners of both layers….
To write the whole message on the card,I have split the message into three different peices…..First I stamped ‘You Are So Sweet’ with orange ink on a grey banner strip,then I heat embossed the ‘&’ with silver embossing powder and finally I die cut the word ‘lovely’ with black glitter cardstock…
I have used a silver foil card stock and black adhesive pearls to punch a few flowers to decorate the card…
Hope you like this card….

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#83 Card In A Card

Just as the title suggests…today’s post is a card in a card…..So when you open the first card…it has a pocket inside which holds another card….I like the slight element of surprise in this card…
I kept the base card quite simple in blue base and layers on green on inside and silver foil cardstock  layer on the outside…The front only has a small green label with silver heat embossed sentiment on it…
The inside card is 3″ x 3″ in foil cardstock with two strips of green and blue cardstock on the front…Then I attached a small white tag on which I had stamped and coloured in an image of a little girl…at the back of the tag I attached  a few small banners for decoration…
I hope you liked this card…
