Miss You Card

I don’t know if there are any cardmakers who have never changed the idea/plan half way through making a card…papercraft is quite unpredicatable at times….something or the other might not not go to plan in a lot of projects…
The card I’m sharing today was almost ready when I looked at the bunny stamped image I had coloured in and thought it looked a bit sad – not cheerful enough for a birthday card – and decided to change the sentiment for the card….
The card base is textured blue cardstock and the top layer is plain white…I have rounded two opposite sides of the base and top layer with a corner rounder punch…I then stamped the top layer with just two stamps from Stampin’ Up! Balloon celebration set using pink gumball dye ink…
I stamped and coloured in the bunny image on white cardstock and created a blue back panel for it…I rounded two edges of these panels as well…the sentiment has been stamped on a vellum strip and placed above the bunny image before adhering the panel to the top layer of the card…
I have used pink rhinestones to decorate the card..

Watercolour Stamping Birthday Card

I love watching tutorials for craft/stamping techniques…and I get very excited when sometimes(just sometimes)my results are pretty close to the tutorial I was following to create my project…I try my very best not to ‘copy’ something as is….where’s the fun in that….
The card that I’m sharing today has been made by following a tutorial by Dawn on the Wplus9 Blog called Watercolor Stamping With Hand Doodling…Now I did skip the doodling part as I’m not very good at drawing of any sort….luckily I had the outline stamp for the stamp set I used and I didn’t have to doodle.. 🙂
I have created this card using the Stampin Up Balloon Celebration Stamp set as well as the coordinating punch to create masks easily…
In short,the technique is about using a solid stamp and dabbing a bit of distress ink on it and very little water to spread it around and then quickly stamping it onto the watercolor cardstock…Dawn used a black pen to doodle around and finish the images while I simply used stamps….
For the sentiment,I die cut the ‘Happy’ word from black glitter cardstock and created a banner to stamp the word ‘Birthday’ on it….and the card was ready….
Hope you liked this card….thanks for stopping by today…

Post#197 – Girl With Balloons Birthday Card

I have recently started using the card size of 4.5″x 5.75″ and I quite like it and plan to use this size often from now on…..especially for cards that I feel would otherwise have looked too full on a standard size card and might not justify the design….
The card base is a bright red one…and the top layer is made from watercolour paper that has been die cut from the largest stitched rectangle die….I then used peerless watercolours to  create a light background for the card….
Once the top layer was dry I stamped all the balloons and strings on it…on a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped and coloured in the little girl and cut it out…I have used adhesive squares to adhere the image onto the card to give it a bit of dimension….
I then die cut the scripty word ‘happy birthday’ using a gold cardstock and placed it above the balloons…I have also added just a few golden star sequins on the balloons as embellishments…
Hope you liked this card…
