Koala Hugs

A while ago,a crafter on Instagram – Felicia( smileyface003 ) – shared some gorgeous card panels that she created using Nuvo drops liquid…she shared a tutorial video as well and I’ve had this on my ‘to try’ list since that day…I think I used less of the liquid and spread it out much thinner than I should’ve but I still love the result…

I used the red berry Nuvo liquid and and a stencil and printed the pattern onto watercolour cardstock and set it aside to dry….it took a few good hours but the result was great…so I die cut it to size for my card and then placed this panel on a light grey textured card base…be sure to wash the stencil with warm soapy water immediately…

 I stamped the Koala and baby on a separate piece of white cardstock and the coloured it in using watercolour pencils and Dove blending pen…I cut it out and adhered it to the card base using some craft foam….

I stamped the sentiment on a long thin strip of grey cardstock and adhered it to the card front..and finally to embellish my card I have used a few silver sequins…

The texture and shine from the Nuvo liquid is really awesome and I am so glad I tried it out…

Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog today…Have a wonderful day ahead…!!

Animal Pun Cards

The stamp set I have used today has really cute animal images and pun-ny sentiments but they are quite tiny…I have made a few cards with them before but thought to try making smaller cards which are in proportion with the images…


I started with creating the card bases for this card set…I chose a green textured cardstock and cut it to size for a 2 1/2″ x 3” top fold card…next I used a star embossing folder to emboss the front of all these card…

Using white cardstock,I die cut four small Polaroid frames….I stamped the sentiment on the Polaroid frame itself and stamped the cute animals on the inner section…I coloured them in using watercolour pencil and sponged in some green ink on all four edges of the square inner section and placed it back inside the Polaroid frame..
I have used a bit of craft foam under the Polaroid frames before placing them on the cards and my card set was ready…

While I had the stamp set out, I decided to try out a standard size card as well…I used a white card base and sponged in some broken chine Distress Ink on the card front…I then dabbed a bit of worn lipstick on an acrylic block and mixed it with a bit of water before splattering it onto to card front…
I die cut a rectangle panel for the card front and stamped the cute kitty and the sentiment using black ink…then using a grey ink,I repeat stamped the image all over the panel…
I adhered some craft foam behind this panel before adhering it to the card base and added a few silver sequins to embellish it…

Christmas Snow Globe – Card & Tag

Happy Christmas Eve…hope you are enjoying it…even if you don’t celebrate Christmas,it is usually a holiday for most so is quite a happy and/or relaxing time..I always think of the emergency services employees like doctors,nurses,police,paramedics,fire fighters and such at this time and am always thankful for them as they work on the days everyone else are having a great time…
Today I’m sharing a card and a tag with the same theme….a snow globe..now when I made the card,I did not have the dies yet but I did use the shaker dies to create the tag…

The card base is a very light aqua blue and I chose a foil print DSP by Stampin Up! for the top layer for a bit of a shiny background…

On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped the snow globe,sponged in some distress inks for the background as well as Santa’s sleigh,trees and snow…I stamped and coloured in the little houses on a separate piece of cardstock and added some glossy accents on it…I also used glossy accents on the stamped sentiment at the base of the snow globe…

To embellish this card I have used silver sequins in various sizes…

I didn’t get the coordinating dies for the snow globe stamp set but I did get the additional coordinating shaker die…although I didn’t create a shaker snow globe in either of these projects..
I die cut a white base for the snow globe and a blue glitter panel for the background….another white die cut for the snow ground and a silver glitter outside frame on which I adhered the little ribbon loop for the tag…
I stamped and die cut the little birdies and added them to the card as well as the sentiment panel which I stamped on blue foil cardstock..

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…
Thank you for stopping by to take a look at my card today…Happy crafting…!!

HB2U Card

Today I wanted to try out a stamped yet filled up background for my card and used the Vintage Doily Stamp set for it….I thought the little girl with the message won’t stand out above the busy background but I’m glad she does…I’m quite happy to share the result with you… 🙂
The card base is plain white and I used the same cardstock to die cut the top layer using the largest of the stitched rectangle dies….I then pulled out a few pink and purple dye inkpads and started stamping on the top layer using the doily stamps in all sizes…
On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped the little girl image and coloured it in before cutting it out and placing it on the card…I have used silver sequins in various sizes to embellish the card…
Thanks for visiting today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!

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… 🙂

Post#127 Reindeer Christmas Cards

My daughters love to make Christmas crafts and we all enjoy making cards and decorations for our home for the holiday season every year….and this year my younger daughter wanted to design Christmas cards for her close friends and sat down with my Christmas stamps folder for quite sometime..
She came up with a lot of different designs and they were all pretty cute…..but the design I liked the most was this card that I’m sharing today…after she was done making her card,I sat down to make a couple myself… 🙂
The cards are simple yet pretty…..the top layer has a stamp of a reindeer as well as Merry Christmas…there are two strips of paper on one side for decoration and a few sequins….and I rounded two corners of the card…
Hope you liked these cards…
