Time Out Challenges – CASE-ing Beverly Brown

The card I’m sharing today is my entry for Time Out Challenge #91 in which we have to CASE with our own twist a very beautiful and colourful card by Beverly Brown – the owner and designer of Uniko Stamps…creating a fun colourful stripy background was easy and to give it a bit of a design twist,I thought of a few ways and finally decided to go with this one…

On a piece of plain white cardstock,I masked 3/4″ sections with some scrap copy paper and covered these sections with various colours of Distress Inks…I used salty ocean,wilted violet,evergreen bough,squeezed lemonade,spiced marmalade,candied apple and blueprint sketch..

Then I stamped the large doily stamp on this colourful stripy background using versafine onyx black ink and heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder…

Time for the twist…I cut each section of the stripy background apart and adhered them onto a silver foil cardstock panel…making sure to assemble them in the right order…ha ha..

I then added this panel to a plain white card base and also added a black strip on one side of this panel…

Using some more silver foil cardstock and black craft foam,I die cut the alphabets h,b and d and adhered them onto the card front…I stamped the words ‘to you’ on a small silver banner and placed it under the die cut word/acronym..

To embellish my card I have used some sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh…

Galaxy Background Using Watercolours

I have tried ‘galaxy-like’ backgrounds for my cards but have been fascinated by the watercolour galaxy background cards that some card makers have shared on various platforms…I couldn’t understand how it was done until I saw the tutorial by Yana Smakula….I do realise that I have used too much colour and less water so my backgrounds are quite blotchy and brighter than they should be… anyways,these are my first couple of tries following the technique….

I chose gold cardstock to create the card base for my first card…I cut out a watercolour panel to size and stamped the dragon,the hedgehog and the log and masked them…I didn’t know how my background was going to turn out so I did not colour in the images right away… 🙂
I then pulled out my Gansai Tambi watercolours and my heat gun and followed the tutorial to create my background…I did add some gold paint splatters on my background which Yana hasn’t…
Once my panel was completely dry,I coloured in the images using Spectrum Noir markers and added the stamped sentiment label to the card front…finally, I used the sparkle pen on the coloured images and my card was ready…

For my second card I chose a green card base and cut watercolour cardstock to size for the front panel…I stamped and masked the unicorn image and proceeded to create the galaxy background…
Once dry,I coloured in the image and die cut a tag from silver foil cardstock and stamped the sentiment using blazing red stazon ink…I adhered some craft foam under the tag before adding it to the card…

To embellish this card I have used silver star sequins…and because I find foil cardstock so hard to photograph I have added quite a few pictures of this card…here is a much clearer and close up shot of the silver tag…

Programming Happy Times Ahead

I like using foil cardstock in my cards but they never show up good in pictures…I tried keeping my card flat but the picture didn’t look too great either..I really need tips and advice for this so let me know if you have some for me…


I started with a silver cardstock for the card base and cut out a large dotted rectangle mat layer using silver foil cardstock…I also die cut a smaller rectangle top panel on which I stamped the Wplus9 Big Top stamp twice to create the rays background…I also stamped the sentiment on this panel using blue dye ink..

On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the robot image and coloured it in using watercolour pencils and Dove blender pen…I then cut it out and placed it on my card..

To embellish this card I have used a few clear sequins in various sizes..and my card was ready…
While this card did not take too long to create but as I said before – it took a long time to click a picture in which the foil cardstock shows properly…and laying it flat was the only way I could get a decent picture…what do you think..??

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…

Scrapbook Boutique March 2017 Challenge

So it’s time again for the Scrapbook Boutique monthly challenge on their blog…did I tell you,I won their February challenge…??Well,I did and am still doing my happy dance…ha ha..Thank you so much Scrapbook Boutique 🙂

Their Design Team is fantastic and I felt quite inspired by all the creations shared by them….I am really enjoying these challenges and the moodboard for this month’s challenge is a colourful one and here’s my creation inspired by it…
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade Card by Pri

I chose a black card base and a black top layer as well….using some scrap coloured cardstock,I cut them into 1″ strips and then cut diagonally to make the rays…after adhering these strips onto the top layer I ran it through my Cuttlebug using the pierced rectangle die..I think it’s the easiest way to neatly cut off the excess cardstock as well as giving the top layer a good finished look…

On a piece of white cardstock,I stamped,coloured in and cut out the image of the little Prince on a horse and placed it on a die cut silver circle…I have used craft foam under this circle before placing it on the card…I die cut a larger silver circle frame and placed it around the circle an cut off the part that didn’t fit on the top layer….

I stamped the sentiment on a silver banner and placed it on the card…and to embellish the card I punched a few hearts from red glitter cardstock and adhered them to the card…

Thank you for stopping by my blog today…Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

A Home Is Made Of Love And Dreams

I really like the quote from the stamp set I have used to make this card….It’s a stamp set by Stampendous called Family Home…all the images in this stamp set have a very different look…
I started by cutting tan coloured cardstock to size for the card base and white cardstock for the top panel…on the white panel I stamped the sentiment and the home image and masked it to add a couple of tree stamps beside and behind the house…
Once the image was coloured in,I sponged in some weathered wood distress ink on the edges and stamped a few hearts using red ink as well….
Finally,I die cut a thin frame from silver foil cardstock and placed it on the top layer…

Gear Up For A Great Birthday

I’m sure there must be other card makers like me who struggle with making cards for boys or men….for me it’s mainly because I get attracted to flowers or cute images and bright colours and find it easy to create with them…so I bought the bionic bots stamp set by MFT specifically to make cards for boys…and guess what was the very first card I made with it…??A  love themed card that I shared last month – Nuts Over Bolts About You 🙂 :p
So I had a good laugh at myself and sat down to make this card….the card base is plain white and I die cut the top layer from watercolor cardstock using an Avery Elle pierced rectangle die….I stamped all the bionic bots images randomly and coloured them in lightly using grey,red and yellow watercolour pencils and my Dove blender pen…and filled in the rest of the top layer with a light blue colour…

I stamped the sentiment on two small die cut rectangles using blue ink and before adhering them onto the card,I added three gears that I die cut using silver foil cardstock…

Here is a closer look of the sentiment section of my card…sorry I wasn’t able to click a better picture so the gears look black instead of silver…

Christmas Large Tag

A beautiful tag on a Christmas present always adds to the excitement….my younger daughter loves getting presents in big boxes…and a big present needs a large tag…so today I’m sharing the very first tag I have made for Christmas this year…and it’s a large one..
The tag base has been die cut using watercolour cardstock and the largest tag die from the MFT die-namics traditional tags stax…I sponged in some distress inks for the background and sprinkled some water for effect…and once dry,I stamped the Christmas tree and snowflakes on the tag…
Using silver foil cardstock and two of the largest tag dies I created a frame for my tag…I also embossed it using the Swiss Dots embossing folder and adhered it to the tag…I embellished the tree using Nuvo crystal drops and the snowflakes using tiny blue rhinestones…
The sentiment was stamped on a separate piece of cardstock…I cut it out and used some foam tape to adhere it to the tag….and finally I added a silver ribbon to complete the tag…
Thank you so much for taking the time and visiting my blog today…Have a wonderful day ahead…!!

Happy Father’s Day

HAPPY Father’s Day to all the awesome dads and inspiring father figures….in Australia and New Zealand we celebrate Father’s Day on the first Sunday of September…and this time I have been able to make a couple of cards for the two awesome guys in my life – my dad and my hubby….both are very loving and caring fathers….my girls adore their dad as much as I adore mine… 🙂
Here are my special cards for today…

For the first card,I have used a white card base and used distress inks to create the background on watercolor paper…the watercolor paper has been die cut using a stitched rectangle die…

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped,coloured in and cut out the little gardener as well as the picket fence and the potted flowers..once these were placed on the top layer,I stamped the sentiment directly onto the card..

For the second card,I used a white card base as well and created the top layer similarly using distress inks…I coloured in and cut out two little girl images for this card and placed them above a few strips of silver foil cardstock….I then stamped the sentiment directly onto the top layer and added a few tiny hearts on it..

You & Me Card

Doesn’t it feel great when you plan out a project and it turns out exactly as you had planned..??It happens to a lot of crafters but my projects don’t necessarily follow my plans…at all..ha ha…but this one surprisingly did…
I started with a silver cardstock base and cut watercolour paper to size before colouring it in with Peacock Feather distress ink…the edges are a bit darker than the center but the photo doesn’t show it that well…
I then used silver foil cardstock to die cut a fancy flourish and placed it on the top layer…then I die cut two hearts from vellum and coloured them in with a light marker and used a white gelly roll pen to create a stitched effect on the edges and placed them above the flourish…
On a silver banner,I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with red embossing powder before placing it above the two vellum hearts…
Finally I decorated the card with small hearts that were die cut from red glitter cardstock using the confetti die by Mama Elephant…

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#171 Hearts Embossed Background card

I quite like the card that I’m sharing with you today….It has a few layers and things on it but it’s not too full of stuff…
The base is made from plain dark pink cardstock…..and the top layer is plain white which has been embossed with love hearts embossing folder and then I wrapped around a silver string on it before attaching it to the card base…
I then added a few layers…the first one is a large stitched circle die cut from the same pink cardstock as the card base…the second one is a smaller stitched circle die cut from silver foil cardstock…Then I die cut a red heart and placed the die cut XOXO on it along with a couple of punched hearts…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#93 Sydney Card using Stampers Anonymous Cityscapes Set

This is the stamp I was looking for when I found the Cityscape stamp set…the other four stamps were a bonus…
I saw a video by Jennifer Rzasa last september in which she had used vellum to create a reflection of the Sydney skyline….and I followed her technique to create the frame for this card….you can see  her video by clicking on this LINK
The frame was made using foil cardstock and nesting dies….once the frame was ready I used two different stamps to create the message ‘hello from Australia’ on the vellum section….
Then I simply adhered the frame to the silver glitter card base…
I had a great time making this card…hope you like it as much as I do…

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…
