Let’s Celebrate You

I am sharing a tall card today…it is 3 1/4 ” x 6 1/2″ and is just perfect for the main feature which is a stem of beautiful Orchid flowers…and to make the flowers ‘pop’ on my card, I have added a layer of thick vellum paper on which I have blended some Distress Ink for a soft look background…

Once my card base was ready, I cut a piece of thick vellum paper slightly smaller than the card front and then applied some peacock feather Distress Ink on it…I also sprinkled some water for effect…
Next, I used Altenew crisp dye inks to stamp the Clearly Besotted orchid oasis layering stamp on a piece of white cardstock…for the flowers I have used sand dunes  and velvet shades of ink, bamboo and olive for the leaves  and mocha shade of ink for the branch…I die cut these images using the coordinating dies and then adhered them to the vellum panel…

On a white label, I stamped the sentiment and adhered it to the vellum panel as well….I hid the adhesive behind the die cut images and the sentiment label at back of the panel to adhere it to the card front…I also added a few sparkling clear sequins to embellish my card…

Easy Colouring Birthday Card

The card I’m sharing today is the easiest and fastest background that I have created….usually I would spend a fair bit of time to colour in all the images, but not this time…I simply added dots of colours with my watercolour markers inside the images and sprayed some perfect pearls mixed with water on it and all my images were coloured in all at once…

I first stamped the leaf and flower images using watermark ink and then heat embossed them with a platinum embossing powder…this embossing helps keep post of the colours within the images when I spray them with the water mixed with perfect pearls powder..I have used Zig clean colour brush markers here..once dry, I adhered this panel to a plain white card base…

I die cut a circle from some vellum paper and adhered the stamped and die cut sentiment on it…I also added some heat embossed and die cut flower and leaf images here….and finally to embellish my card I have added a few pink jewels….

Vellum Embossed Flowers For The Flower Challenge #20 – Sending Love

While planning today’s card, I wanted to use border stamps and at the same time I wanted the background to be subtle as my vellum flowers and die cut sentiment were going to be quite bright…I usually go for bright and colourful backgrounds for my cards, so this was a good challenge for me..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I will be entering this card for the latest Flower Challenge #20 and the theme for this month is acetate/vellum…
I started by die cutting a white panel for the front of my card using a large dotted rectangle die..then  I stamped the border stamps using Altenew crisp inks – pink diamond and sand dunes..I also heat embossed two strips on this panel using Altenew platinum embossing powder and adhered this panel to a plain white card base…

On a piece of Vellum paper, I stamped the flower and leaf cluster twice and heat embossed them using the same platinum embossing powder…I coloured on the back of these images with my alcohol markers and then adhered these to the card, making sure to leave enough space for the die cut word…
I die cut the word ‘love’ twice using stitched alphabet dies and a bright red cardstock and layered them before placing them on the card front…I stamped the other half of the sentiment on a red label using white ink and adhered it just above the die cut word..and finally, to embellish my card I have added some small red and pink sequins..

Be Happy – Altenew March Inspiration Challenge

This month’s Altenew Challenge is by Virginia LuI really love her cardmaking style and my entry for the challenge is also inspired by her as she has created some cards with heat embossed flowers on vellum which look so very very beautiful….and that’s exactly what I did for my card..heat embossed some flowers…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

This is the image and colours for the challenge…

I cut watercolor cardstock to size for my front panel and used a piece of acetate, Altenew crisp dye inks and water spray bottle to create the background by simply smooshing the ink on paper…I have used aqualicious,coral bliss and sunkissed shades here…once dry,I used a postage stamp edge rectangle die to emboss the edges of my panel and then adhered it to a plain white card base…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a piece on vellum paper,I stamped a few Cosmos flowers using Versamark ink and then heat embossed it using gold embossing powder…I didn’t have the matching dies by then,so I simply cut them out…I carefully adhered these flowers to my front panel by using a liquid glue just behind the embossed areas so it wouldn’t show…
Next,I die cut the word ‘BE’ three times from thick cardstock using bold caps die and layered them together…I sponged some coral bliss ink on it before adhering it the the card front..I gold heat embossed  the rest of the sentiment on a small white strip and sponged aqualicious ink on it to stick to the colours in the challenge..and finally I added some gold Nuvo drops to embellish my card…

Altenew August Inspiration Challenge

Erum is a fantastic artist whose card is the inspiration for this month’s Altenew Inspiration Challenge…I took a lot of inspiration from both her cards to create mine..I did a whole lot of heat embossing on Vellum and wasn’t sure if I would be able to put it all together…but I did…and here is my card..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

This is Erum’s card and the colours for this challenge…
I started by creating the background on the white front panel using Altenew sketched lines stencil and vintage photo Distress Oxide ink…I then splattered some gold paint on it…I adhered this panel to a white card base once it was dry…

I stamped all the flower and leaf images on Vellum using watermark ink and heat embossed all of them using some gold embossing powder…I then used various Distress Inks and a bit of water to colour in all these images…I have used peacock feather,mermaid lagoon,forest moss and ground espresso shades here…I also coloured in a couple of images using gold watercolour..
I splattered these images with gold paint as well and once dry,I cut them all out and adhered them to the card front using some multi medium adhesive…

My Entry For MFT Sketch Challenge – Sketch 342

The card I am sharing today has been created using a sketch given out at the MFT Card Challlenges Blog…It’s my first time entering a sketch challenge and I took part only because the idea for this card formed as soon as I saw the sketch…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

This is the sketch for this week’s challenge…

I chose a white card base and a white front panel for my card and started by stamping the sloth image on the front panel…I masked one end of the branch as I wanted it a bit longer and hand drew the rest of it using a black Copic fineliner pen….I coloured in the image using Spectrum Noir markers…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
Then using brown glitter cardstock and the stitched edge die I die cut one layer and then used Vellum paper and scalloped edge die  for the top layer…I stamped and clear embossed the sentiment on this vellum layer before adhering both of them onto the front panel of my card…instead of finding a way to adhere the Vellum to the front panel,I simply cut it a bit longer and folded it in from the top and sides and adhered those flaps at the back of the panel…
I wanted to keep my design simple so I die cut a few sequins from gold cardstock and used them as embellishments on my card..

Let me know your thoughts about my interpretation of the sketch….thank you for stopping by my blog today…Have a happy and crafty day ahead..!!

Trying Out The Block Watercolor Stamping Technique

Anyone who is a big fan of Jennifer McGuire would’ve seen or even already tried out this block stamping technique that she shared a tutorial for earlier this month….it is the simplest way to create a background and great for teaching kids as well…I did not do any heat embossing on my cards as I wanted to use die cuts on them….

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

For these cards,I made the background first and then decided later which colour to use for the card base…I started by cutting watercolour cardstock to size and then used various distress inks  to dab on the acrylic block…here I have used the following shades – peacock feather,mustard seed,picked raspberry and aged mahogany…I then spritzed some water on the block and stamped that onto the watercolour cardstock…making sure it doesn’t move,I added something heavy on top and left it for about 5 mins…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Once the top layer was completely dry,I die cut the word hello from it and adhered rest of the top layer to a pink card base..I die cut the word hello again from pink craft foam and layered that under the die cut word before adhering it back to the card…

I die cut two trees and coloured them using Distress Inks before adhering them the the card front…and finally I have used a few sequins to embellish this card..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

For my second card I chose a long narrow stamping block and die cut the watercolor cardstock using large cross stitched rectangle die…I then dabbed distress inks onto this block…I have used seedless preserves,blueprint sketch,broken china salty ocean and tumbled glass here..spritzed it with water and stamped on the paper…how easy is that..??

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Once dry,I adhered the top layer to a light blue card base and added a die cut word ‘congratulations’ on it..I used a gold foil cardstock for this…

I stamped a butterfly on vellum paper using wilted violet Distress Oxide ink and once dry,I cut it out and adhered it to the card front…

To embellish this card I have used some tiny gold star sequins..

Hydrangeas Thanks Card – Altenew July 2017 Inspiration Challenge

Today I’m sharing the second card that I created for the Altenew Inspiration Challenge….I have also tried to get a better picture of the stencil embossed grid background…it looks beautiful but I was unable to click a picture which shows it clearly…

I started with a plain white cardstock same size as the card front and used the Altenew grid stencil and ruby red ink for the background…I created an ombre effect by using less ink on some areas and more on some…keeping the stencil in place,I embossed the top layer and then adhered it to the card front…

On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the layered Hydrangeas and leaves…I used frosty pink,forest glades and jet black shades here…in one of the Hydrangeas I kept the background white and only stamped the layering detail section in pink…I cut these elements out and placed them on the card…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I stamped the sentiment on a die cut vellum label and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder…I coloured in the back of this label using ruby red ink and then adhered it to a larger glitter gold label…I placed the sentiment above the flowers…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

To embellish my card I have used die cut sequins from the same glitter gold cardstock as the sentiment label…I have also used craft foam under a few elements to add a bit of depth..

Katzelkraft Dogs Rubber Stamps – Thinking Of You

As I shared in my previous post,for the next few posts I will be sharing cards I have made using Katzelkraft Dogs stamp set…and this is the second card that I created…four more to go.. 🙂

I chose a kraft cardstock card base for this card and cut the top layer from watercolour cardstock a fair bit smaller than the card front…I then used a few shades of yellow from my watercolour set to create an ombre effect on the top layer…once dry,I embossed this top layer using the rays embossing folder and stamped the sentiment on one side before adhering it to the card base..
I then stamped the dog image on a separate piece of cardstock and coloured it in using Spectrum Noir markers before cutting it out and placing it on the card…
Next I wanted the dog to be thinking of a something yum…so I cut out a stamped image of the  ribbon wrapped bone(which is a part of the stamp set) and placed it on a die cut thought bubble..I used vellum for this as well as the three hearts….
I did not use any embellishments in this card but I did use some glossy accents on the collar and eyes of the dog as well as on the bone…
Thank you so much for taking the time and visiting my blog today…Hope you will have a wonderful day ahead…!!

Gold Embossed Congratulations Card

One of my crafty resolutions for this year is to practice and get better at heat embossing…so every now and then I keep reminding myself about it…and today I patiently sat down to create this card which not only has heat embossing but also a lot of masking as you can see that quite a few of the images are overlapped…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I started with a watercolour cardstock panel and created a few masks for the flowers that were overlapping on my design layout…I then did my stamping and heat embossed the flower outline images using gold embossing powder…I also embossed a few flowers on vellum paper and coloured them pink and kept them aside to use later…
I then cut this design into two pieces and adhered a pink strip of gold embossed sentiment in the middle…to get this panel to for the card front,I simply ran it through my Cuttlebug using a stitched rectangle die..
Finally I used some Distress inks to watercolour the white areas above and below the embossed flowers…I used mermaid lagoon,peacock feather and cracked pistachio Distress ink shades mixed with a bit of water…once dry,I adhered this panel to the front of a plain white card and adhered the pink vellum flowers as well..
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I will be entering this card in the latest Time Out Challenge #86…the theme of this challenge is celebrations and I thought that a congratulations card would be great for this theme…I’m still finding out the details of the challenges but I think there is a new challenge every two weeks and if you’re interested in taking part,here’s the link to their blog – Time Out Challenges

Unicorn In The Clouds – Birthday Card

For today’s card,I decided to use soft colours to give it a bit of a magical look…I also wanted to use Vellum for the clouds and am very happy with how that turned out..

I started with a white card base with a white die cut top layer as well…then using Distress Oxide inks mixed with water and smooshed and splattered them onto the top layer very lightly to create the background…I have used cracked pistachio,worn lipstick and broken china shades of Distress Oxide inks here…
Using the clouds border dies and some vellum paper,I die cut three pieces and sponged the edges with blue ink and them layered them onto the top layer….
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped the unicorn image using black Versafine pigment ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder and then coloured it in and cut it out..I also went over the coloured image with my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen so it look even more magical and adhered it to the card front using craft foam…

I stamped the sentiment on the top right using black ink and adhered a few small purple coloured star sequins to embellish my card..

Here’s a close up shot of the Unicorn and the vellum clouds..

Altenew Garden Hydrangeas – Just For You

After making a pop-up card with the Altenew Garden Hydrangeas stamp set,I decided to make a couple more…the first card I made today turned out almost as planned but the second one I’m not too sure about…although I still like it and it looks good but I feel it’s missing something….anyways,I just love this Hydrangeas stamp set….

For my first card,I chose a lavender coloured textured cardstock to make the card base as well as the top layer…I embossed the top layer using Seeing Spots embossing folder and then lightly sponged in some shaded lilac distress ink…
On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the outline stamp of the flowers and a few of the leaves and coloured them in using watercolour pencils and a water brush…once dry,I placed them on the card…
The sentiment has been stamped on a strip of lavender cardstock and I have placed it above another light blue banner using craft foam..
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade Card by Pri
For my second card I chose a bright green card base and a plain white top layer….on this top layer,I stamped the base stamp layer of the Garden Hydrangeas layering stamp set using blue dye ink and a couple of green leaves as well…
I then cut a piece of vellum as bit larger than the top layer and then using my mini Misti and watermark ink,I stamped the top layer of the Hydrangeas and leaves and quickly heat embossed it using silver embossing powder….I then placed this layer above the white stamped top layer and tucked the excess paper behind it….I have not used any adhesive for the vellum layer,I simply used silver string and wrapped that around…
I die cut the word happy from silver glitter cardstock and stamped the word birthday on a silver strip of card and adhered these to the card…and finally to embellish the card I have used a few blue sequins…

Easter Bunnies

I didn’t have any Easter themed stamps so wasn’t planning on making Easter cards this year…but then I saw my MFT Somebunny stamp set and an idea started to form…I got stuck again when I needed a larger sentiment than I had for this card…and that’s where alphabet stamps came handy….and here’s the card…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

On a plain white card base I have used a yellow top layer…I stamped the sentiment right in the middle of this layer using a combination of a small word stamp and alphabet stamps….I then added the next layer above it which has been made from Vellum cut to the same size as the top layer and embossed using the quilted embossing folder….

Next,I die cut a rectangular frame from white cardstock and adhered it to the card…I also adhered tiny blue sequins on the Vellum in the area within this rectangle..

After that I stamped the cute bunnies and carrots on a separate piece of cardstock,coloured them in using watercolour pencils and my Dove blender pen and cut them out before placing them on the card…

Here’s a closer look at the how the bunny images turned out…

It’s Your Day

I wanted to make a cute card using the Seamus stamp set by Jane’s Doodles..the sheep images in this stamp set are super cute and so easy to colour in…
I started with a plain white card base and a white top layer…then using the Avery Elle double pierced rectangle die set,I die cut two sections in the middle and embossed the edge of the top layer….and since I didn’t want to add bulk but still add a bit of texture in the space that shows behind the die cut area – I embossed a piece of vellum paper and adhered it to the back of the top layer…
I stamped and coloured in the sheep images and carefully cut them out and placed them on the card…and finally I stamped the sentiment and my card was ready…
I’m glad you stopped by to take a look at my card….Hope you will have a beautiful day today…!!
