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… 🙂

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#106 Colourful Birthday Card

Most of my projects start with a plan….a few rare ones turn out exactly as planned…the rest usually surprise me….and I’m sure this happens with most crafters….but it’s fun…a lot of fun…
For this card I was going to repeat a die pattern using Lawn Fawn Stitched Border Dies and create a repeated faux stitching background on various coloured sections/panels on the front of the card…but as soon as I ran the first section through my Cuttlebug…the die had slipped and the stitch pattern was at an angle…so instead of wasting time to re-cut another strip and start again…I simply used the cross stitch pattern die in an angle as well…
Then I threaded a few silver sequins on a silver thread and wrapped it around the the top panel…once the background was ready,I attached a silver and an orange strip on the side and attached this layer to the card base…
I finished the card by stamping b-day word and adding a silver glitter die cut word happy above it…
Hope you liked this card…
