Oh Crab..I Forgot..

Unless a phone app or Facebook reminds us of upcoming birthdays and anniversaries, most of us easily forget….but look at the bright side…due to these app etc. we are wishing more people than we ever used to and that can’t be bad…
For today’s card I started with a plain black card base….I then cut up watercolor paper to size for the top layer and simply brushed on some blue and pink Peerless watercolors on it…..once dry,I used a few stitched border dies to create a bit of an effect on the top layer…
On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped coloured in and cut out the crab image before placing it on the center of the card…I wanted the crab to look a bit sad but my colouring in skills don’t extend that far…ha ha…I stamped the sentiment just above using black ink and decided not to embellish the card at all…
Thanks for visiting today…Have a happy and crafty day…!!

Happy Birthday Peonies Card

Today I’m sharing another card where I have used watercolours….but the main hero of this card is the Altenew Peony Scrolls stamp set…..I have just used four of the stamps from the set….there are a lot more tiny ones in the set as well….
The card base is plain blue and for the top layer layer I have used Ranger watercolour paper…I have stamped all the images using Versamark ink and heat embossed them with black embossing powder and then coloured them in using Peerless watercolours….I also decided to wash the negative space on it using a light blue colour….
I have used a strip of pink foil cardstock for the die cut sentiment but before I placed the sentiment on it,I used the stitch border die to create the stitched effect on it…and finally I used a few tiny sequins to decorate the card…
Thanks for stopping by to take a look…Happy crafting…

Post#154 For You Card

I haven’t used kraft cardstock for a couple of weeks now and I really wanted to create this particular design using both plain and printed kraft paper…
The plain kraft cardstock has been used for the card base….then there is a layer of a swirly print kraft paper….and the top layer is made from Vellum paper…on all four sides of this vellum paper I have used two of the stitched border diee to give it a bit of texture…
In the middle of the card I have placed an embossed tag die cut from cold cardstock…the tag has a die cut word ‘For You’ on it as well as a two gold heat embossed pansy flowers and two leaves…
The gold and lavender sequins not only decorate the card but they also hide the glue dots that have been used to attach  the vellum to the layer below it….

Hope you liked my card….

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…

Post#50 Colourful Hello

Post Number 50…..sounds sooooo good when I say it out loud… 🙂
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog…..each one of you encourage me to do better and keep going…

Here I have tried the very popular distress inks watercolour effect with embossing folders….for this card I wanted to use the whole piece on the card and also try and keep the embossed parts from getting ink on them so it stands out better….
After the embossed layer was dry I attached it to the card base….then I took a strip of blue paper same as the card base and used the stitched border die to create a slanting stitch effect on it…I added the die cut word hello on top and then adhered it to the card…
I like how bright and colourful this card turned out…Hope you liked it too….
