Two Small Shaped Cards

I like to create shaped cards every once in a while….the last time I made one, it was a heart shaped card for a challenge and I wanted to create a few more…they were pretty quick to make so I made two while I was at it…

For my first card I die cut two scalloped circles from heavyweight white cardstock and adhered them to create the card base…next I die cut a circle from watercolour cardstock for the front panel and applied some Distress Oxide inks on it…I have used salty ocean, blueprint sketch and shaded lilac for this and then dabbed it with a wet stamp shammy to create that background effect…I added a small grassy die cut on this circle and adhered it to the card front…
On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped and coloured in the sheep and cut it out and placed it on the card front…I then stamped the sentiment using black ink and embellished my card with a few clear confetti sequins..

My second card was much quicker to create….I first die cut two edged circles from black cardstock for the card base and one smaller one from kraft cardstock for the front panel…I stamped the sentiment and the pattern with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder…it is a layering stamp, so I heat embossed the sentiment layer with white embossing powder and then adhered this top panel to the card base..
To add a bit of interest, I coloured in the flower and two leaves with a shimmery silver watercolour and adhered some tiny red sequins to embellish it…

I think I spent more time trying to click pictures of these two cards than I did making them…one or both of them kept rolling away…and this is the only picture of these two ‘not in motion’…ha ha..

My Blog’s 1st Anniversary…YAY…!!!

It is quite an exciting day for me today…..My blog has been running for a whole year now….I will credit both my daughters for encouraging me to set up this blog so I could share my creations as well as learn from the talented people all over the world….I had absolutely no idea about creating or running a blog and I feel that I’m still in the early stages of learning but it’s super exciting to reach this point… 🙂
A lot of people have constantly encouraged me over the past year and I’m thankful to each and every one of them… 
To create today’s card I have used the very first die set I bought about six years ago – Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circles – I  used the largest die in the set to create the base of the card…I have also embossed the edges with the same die using an embossing mat…The middle layer is die cut from white cardstock using the stitched circle die…I have used the smaller one of the stitched dies to create the top layer for the card…
On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped,coloured in and cut out the little critter stamp and placed it on the card over a small banner…
Thank you so much for visiting today…Have a lovely, happy & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!
