Hello There

Hello friends…hope you’ve all had a wonderful time over the holidays and have had a great start to 2018…hope this year brings you lots of happiness and memorable times…I have not been able to craft much at all since Christmas so it will take me a bit longer than planned to post on my blog….there are a couple of challenges on a few blogs that I want to participate in so I should probably start there… 🙂

Today I’m sharing the only card I have been able to create for my blog …I started with creating a base from a textured orange cardstock and rounded all four edges of the card…I then rounded the edges of a plain black cardstock layer and adhered it to a silver foil die cut rectangle layer before placing them on the card front…

On a separate piece of watercolour cardstock I stamped the flower and leaf images using Versafine black ink and the heat embossed them all using clear embossing powder…I coloured the images using Crayola Fine Line markers and a water brush and once dry,I die cut them with the coordinating dies…

Once I was happy with the placement of all the flowers and leaf,I used the Glad Press’nSeal wrap to keep everything in place while I was gluing them to the silver foil layer…I think it’s a great product for crafting…here is a video by Laurie Wilson where she uses the Press’nSeal for her card layout..

I added the sentiment stamped on a strip of orange cardstock and placed it just above the flowers and to embellish my card I have used some Nuvo jewel drops..

So happy you stopped by my blog today…hopefully I will have some more projects to share with you soon…Have a happy and crafty day ahead..!!

Fairy In The Garden – Make A Wish

I have used so many different colouring mediums in today’s card and I’m quite surprised that there were no major dramas while making it…I’ve used dye inks,watercolours,watercolour pencils and Distress Inks…

I started with watercolour cardstock cut to size for the card front and stamped and masked the fairy and the flowers…I then used various Distress Inks to create the background…the shades I have used here are blueprint sketch,salty ocean,tumbled glass,squeezed lemonade,twisted citron and mowed lawn…

I then removed the masks and coloured in the flowers using watercolours and watercolour pencils to colour in the fairy…I also stamped some green grass at the base…

I die cut the sentiment using glitter cardstock and layer it with blue craft foam before adhering it to the card…I cut a very thin strip of the same glitter cardstock and adhered it to one side of the top layer…

Finally,I adhered the top layer to a plain white card base and added a few clear sequins to embellish my card..

Black & Gold Anniversary Card

Today I’m sharing an anniversary card that I had been wanting to try for quite sometime…the idea had been formed in my head (and my ideas notepad) long ago and I have finally tried it out…

The card base and top layer of this card is made from black cardstock and I have painted stripes on the top layer using a wide paintbrush and metallic gold paint…I then stamped the sentiment on this panel using Versamark ink and gold embossing powder…
On a separate piece of black cardstock,I stamped three flowers from one of my favourite stamp sets – Tim Holtz Flower Garden and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder as well…I then adhered them to the card front,making sure to used some craft foam under the flower on top for a bit of dimension…I had already added some gold string behind the flowers before I adhered them onto the card…
I used my metallic marker to colour a few white pearls and used them to embellish the card…

Today is also my parents wedding anniversary and I made a similar card for them using the same idea..I will only share a little peek of the card I made for them just in case they haven’t received my card yet…I used the Altenew Garden Hydrangeas stamp set for this card…
Thank you for your visit today…I’m glad you stopped by my blog…Have a wonderful day ahead…!!

Flowers – Just For You

I am always amazed at all the unique results I get when I use distress inks with water….and my favourite technique is to use an embossing folder spritzed with water and used as a stamp on a panel sponged with distress inks…
For today’s card I chose a pink card base and a distress watercolor paper top layer…I stamped the flowers and stems using black ink and then masked them using Pebeo drawing gum and a thin paint brush…
Once the gum was dry,I sponged in some distress inks to cover the background…the shades I have used are – seedless preserves,wilted violet,blueprint sketch,picked raspberry and spun sugar..I have then spritzed an embossing folder with water and stamped on the top layer…
It took a while to dry and after that I removed the gum and coloured in the flowers using Intense pencils and a waterbrush…
I placed the stamped sentiment on the card and I have used Nuvo crsytal drops to embellish this card…
Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look at my card…Have a blessed day today…!!

You Are My Sunshine

I have recently started following Therese on her blog called Lost in Paper….She also puts up great tutorial videos on some posts…and all her cards are absolutely fabulous….
For today’s card I have followed her technique for the Distress Ink Penny Black Butterfly Panel…and in order to make my card a bit different from hers,I made two panels and used them on the sides rather than make one for the center…
So I started with a piece of white cardstock same size as my card front and used distress inks to colour in all of it..then using my Mini Misti and black Versafine ink I stamped the flowers first on the top layer and then directly onto the card front….I then stamped the sentiment… 
Then next step was to cut the top layer into 3 parts…I kept the middle one aside…on the other two,I adhered some craft foam before attaching it to the card front…and after adding a few sequins,my card was ready…
I really enjoyed making this card…It’s very simple and quick to make and lookp good too…
Thanks for visiting my blog today…Have a great day ahead….!!

Flowers Pop-Up Card

Pop up cards have been around for a long time and from what I can see on the internet, card makers have been creating awesome ones…some cards are pretty intricate and quite detailed and I really can’t even begin to understand how those cards were made….

Today I’m sharing my first pop up card….although I must say that using a die to create the tabs made it quite easy for me…the die comes in a set called Make It Pop by Stampendous…so all I had to do was to use the pop up die for the inside printed insert of the card and folded the tabs the correct way for them to work and then attached the elements to those tabs….I have used some cut out peony flowers and leaves on the bottom tab and a ‘Happy Birthday’ banner on the top one…

I kept the outside/front of the card quite simple….the top layer is plain grey and I have used the smaller images from the Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set and repeat stamped them around the edges…I coloured in the flowers and some leaves using Spectrum Noir markers….I stamped the sentiment in the middle and used Nuvo crystal drops to embellish the card…

You Brighten My Day Card

It’s the middle of winters in Australia right now and it gets really grey and drab mainly in the southern states of my country….so these days if I see a bright flower which has popped up in the most unexpected of places,it brings a genuine smile on my face…
And with that thought I started this card…..the card base is plain brown and the top layer has been created using watercolor paper smooshed with some distress ink…I then die cut a piece of vellum paper the same size as the top layer using the stitched rectangle die and decided to place bright coloured in and cut out flowers on it…
For the flowers I have used my favorite stamp set – Flower Garden by Tim Hotlz – and coloured them in using Peerless watercolors….I created the banner by stamping it with stripy stamp using yellow dye ink and then stamped the sentiment on it….the adhesive is hidden behind these elements to adhere the vellum to the watercolor layer below….
I have used blue sequins in various sizes to embellish the card…
Thanks for visiting today…Have a great day ahead….!!

Bright & Colourful Anniversary Card

I love bright cards and I’m surprised that I haven’t made such a colourful anniversary card before…I also enjoyed making all the coordinating embellishments for this card…
The card base is made from textured green cardstock and I have cut the top layer to size from watercolor paper…I blended in various bright distress inks onto the watercolor paper and water stamped on it using an embossing folder….I added a strip of dark blue glitter cardstock on one side on the top layer…
I stamped two of the flowers form Tim Holtz Flower Garden set on white cardstock and coloured them in with peerless watercolours…once dry,I cut them out and placed them on the bottom corner of the top layer…I also die cut and punched out butterflies in various sizes using silver glitter cardstock and placed them on the card…
For the sentiment I coloured piece of white cardstock with pink watercolour and die cut the words and placed them on the card…I also adhered rhinestones on all the butterflies…

Folded Birthday Card

I’ve had the tutorial for this card bookmarked for such a long time and I wish I had tried it out sooner….it was so easy and fun to make and I love the unique folding technique..

I started with a square dark lavender cardstock and got the card base folded as per the instructions in the tutorial video….once that was ready,I stamped on the inside of the card and prepared the layers for the inside sections…

On the front of the card I have used a few mat layers and a final stamped top layer on which I have placed the sentiment as well…this top layer is adhered by using adhesive sponge squares as the ribbon needs to be threaded underneath it to close the card…

This card was so much fun to try….I hope you too are having fun crafting today…
