Card For An Adorable Baby

I see a lot of attractive night sky and space kind of backgrounds that card makers have been sharing on their blogs and Instagram etc…and I really wanted to give it a try…once the background was ready I was unsure whether it needed to be a bit darker or not…and because I was going to make a baby card,I didn’t want it any darker than this…

The card base is plain white and I have die cut the top layer from watercolour cardstock using the large rectangle cross stitch die….then I used Distress Inks to create the background…I have used the following inks – shaded lilac,wilted violet,blueprint sketch,seedless preserves and hickory smoke…I splattered some water and some white paint on this panel for effect…
I stamped the word ‘adorable’ right at the top and heat embossed it using silver embossing powder…I die cut the word baby using large alphabet dies – first from white cardstock and then from silver glitter cardstock and glued them together and placed them on the card…I also added a silver heat embossed sentiment banner that says ‘Bundle Of Joy’…
On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the moon with sleeping baby,coloured it in and cut it out then placed it on the card…I added a few stars that I punched from silver glitter cardstock as well….
Thank you for your visit today…I’m glad you stopped by my blog…Have a wonderful day ahead…!!

Post#174 – Distress Inks,Stencils+Water Background Cards

I have followed a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire to create backgrounds for all these cards….I got quite excited by such a good result and went ahead and made a couple more cards using this technique…
Here is the link for the tutorial – Easy Distress Ink Backgrounds by Jennifer McGuire
It’s an excellent video so there is no need for me to write down much details….
I did however mix a bit of twinkling H2O watercolour in my water spritzer for a shiny look as I do not have any other kind of pre-bottled shimmer spritzer etc….
The cards are only lightly decorated as the background is the hero in all these cards….
Hope you liked these cards…
Do you have a favourite??Let me know…

Post#116 Star Box

Now this is a box that I wanted to make because of the lovely star shape at the top of the box…I had the link for the tutorial bookmarked for more than a year now but never got around to making it coz I thought it was a kind of a tricky box…I couldn’t have been more wrong….and once you see the tutorial you will think the same…
I chose a dark eggplant coloured paper with a marbled effect print to create the box…..once the box was ready,I carefully tied the ribbon around it…this box doesn’t close fully so you have to be careful about what you put inside of it…
On the front of the box I adhered the die cut word ‘For You’ using silver paper and a star as well…
Hope you liked this box and will try it out…

Post#109 Love Heart Theme Tag

After making some cards and tags I realised that they all had one thing in common….Love Hearts…So I made a few more and decided to share them with you over the next week as a theme… 🙂
Once I die cut the tag,I inked an embossing folder(Honeycomb by Kaisercraft) with pigment ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder…this works perfect for me because I do not own any background stamps…
I then created the watercolour effect using distress inks…simply dab some ink on a small piece of acetate and spritz it with a bit of water…transfer this watered ink directly onto the paper….it becomes more beautiful when two colours combine to create a new one….
Once the tag was dry I attached the three die cut hearts in the center…stamped the sentiment on a banner,added a few punched stars and finally added the ribbons…
Hope you liked this tag…there are a couple more that I’ll be sharing with you soon…
