LEAP DAY SPECIAL BLOG POST – No Fuss Colouring Technique Cards

It’s the 29th of February and I’m going to celebrate this day which comes only once in four years….I don’t know if my blog will still be running four years from now….so I’ve decided not to number my post for today….not only that,I’m sharing a special technique that I’ve learn’t from the latest issue of Australian Cardmaking,Stamping and Papercraft magazine (Vol. 22 No.8)..

The no fuss colouring technique tutorial was by Marion Vagg and her card was so pretty….She has used the back of cling stamps to stamp with coloured ink first and then the right side with black ink…..now the thing we have to be really careful about is the fact that the stamp has to be a symmetrical one or else it won’t work…
I got such good results from this technique that I went ahead and made two cards….The first one is a Hello card in which I have used my marigold stamp and in the second card I have used balloon stamps to make a Birthday card….
It’s a great technique to teach kids as well….
Hope you liked my cards….

Post#148 DIY Checkered Background Pattern Card

It’s so much fun to create backgrounds for cards yourself….and this one has got to be one of the easiest….and its great because you can choose the colours you’d like to match your embellishments…
I’m sure most of you had one look at the card and knew exactly how the background was made…and just to confirm, I’ll let you know that I made it using a ruler and my Spectrum Noir markers…
I have used glitter adhesive tape in 3 colours to decorate the top layer….I also created a tag by using two Stampin Up! punches and ribbon….the image on the tag is actually a cut out from a piece of vellum paper on which the image was stamped and coloured in….and the sentiment was stamped directly on the tag…

Once the top layer was ready,I adhered it onto a card base made from marble print green cardstock….

I hope you liked this card and the background I created…..
