From All Of Us

I really loved the layering stamp sets by Clearly Besotted I have used so far, so I got another one…this one is called Pure Poppies…very easy to layer and such great results as well…I also used a rectangle die to add a bit of texture and pattern to the background…

I started by die cutting the black cardstock for the background panel and adhered it to the card base….I then added a smaller stitched rectangle to the card front which has been die cut from gold glitter cardstock …

On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped the poppy and leaf images and die cut them using the coordinating dies…I have used the following shades of Altenew crisp inks for stamping the flowers- heartbeat, rouge &coral bliss and for the leaves I have used just green and parrot….

I adhered these pieces to the card and then white heat embossed the sentiment on a small black die cut label and used some adhesive foam to add a bit of dimension…and finally I added a few white Nuvo drops to embellish my card..

With A Grateful Heart – Altenew Carnations For Timeout Challenge #107

I have used the stamps for my no.1 favourite flowers for making today’s card for the current timeout challenge…it took me a while to get my hands on this Altenew Carnation stamp set but  when I finally did,I stamped the very first flowers in shades of red which was just perfect for the yellow and teal stripy stencilled background….

My card is created for the theme of spring for this challenge but I wasn’t able to incorporate the optional twist of the one layer card this time…
I started by die cutting the front panel using a dotted rectangle die and then used the Altenew classy stripes stencil and Distress Inks to create the background…I have used squeezed lemonade and peacock feather shades here and also splattered some water for effect….I then adhered this panel to a plain white top fold card base..

I stamped the layering Carnation flowers and leaves on a separate piece of white cardstock and die cut them using the coordinating dies..I have used various Altenew crisp dye inks for these….I also  stamped a few other flowery images from this stamp set using black ink and coloured them in with my markers before die cutting them as well…once I was happy with the layout of the flowers and leaves,I adhered them to my card…I have used some foam squares under one of the flowers for a bit of dimension…
I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment on a black strip and adhered it to my card as well…and finally I have added some black Nuvo drops to embellish my card…

Two Long Cards – Congrats & Celebrate

Hydrangeas are one of my favorites and I can’t wait to see them bloom this summer….till then I’m quite happy to make cards with Hydrangeas stamps….the cards I’m sharing today are 4″x7&1/4″ and were the perfect size to fill up with a lot of flower images…especially the Garden Hydrangeas stamps because usually I’m only able to add no more than two of those images in a standard size card…


I used a textured purple cardstock to create the card base for my first card….I the cut watercolour cardstock to size for the front panel and stamped the Hydrangea flowers and leaves using Versamark ink and heat embossed them using some white embossing powder….


I painted them in with my watercolour pens and a waterbrush using blue and purple shades as these are the colours of the Hydrangeas that grow in my home… once the panel was dry,I adhered it to the card base…

I die cut the word ‘congrats’ from purple glitter cardstock as well as purple craft foam and layered them together before adhering them to the card front…but before I did that I stamped the rest of the sentiment using purple dye ink..

I also adhered a scalloped border at the base of my card which I die cut from the same purple glitter cardstock as the sentiment…I added a few clear Nuvo drops to embellish my card…

I will be entering this card in the latest Flower Challenge #13 who are currently celebrating their 1st birthday…the prizes are amazing for this challenge and prizes 1,4,5 or 6 would be my choice if I am lucky enough to win..
For my second card I chose a dark pink textured cardstock to create the card base and a smaller front panel from white cardstock…
I used the Beautiful Day layering stamp set from Altenew and covered the front panel with the images by masking and re-stamping the same flowers..I used Altenew crisp dye inks for stamping these images…for the flowers I have used cotton candy,coral berry and purple wine shades and for the leaves and other smaller images I simply coloured them in using my alcohol markers…

For the sentiment,I die cut the word celebrate 3 times from the same cardstock as the card base and layered them up before adhering it to the card front…I then applied some glossy accents on top of this die cut for a bit of shine…and finally I added rhinestones in various sizes to embellish my card…

Scrapbook Boutique April Challenge

For the April challenge at Scrapbook Boutique blog,the moodboard theme is ‘pastels’….for a minute I thought I would actually be giving it a miss…I usually go for bright colours and haven’t tried anything much with pastels….so I went through the blog hop yet again looking for ideas from the DT…

I was inspired by Therese’s white heat embossed image,Linda’s choice of Distress Oxide shades for water colouring and added a tag to my project after being inspired by Louise’s layout…of course I added my imagination as well and here’s what I managed to create…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I chose a plain white card base and a white top layer the same size as the card front…I first splattered some fossilized amber distress oxide ink mixed with a bit of water and set it aside to dry…
On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped the three butterflies using Versamark ink and heat embossed them using white embossing powder…I then used worn lipstick,broken china and wilted violet distress oxide inks to watercolour these butterflies and cut them out once they were dry…

I cut three wide strips from textured pastel coloured cardstock and used a fringe scissor to add a fringe on one end of these strips before layering them and adhering them to the front layer…I used a large rectangle stitched die to create a border as well as to get rid of the excess….

I then stamped the sentiment on a small tag and adhered it to the card front and used glue dots to adhere the butterflies…and finally I have used Nuvo sea breeze jewel drops to the butterflies which was just perfect for this card…

Thank You

I can’t even remember how I made backgrounds for cards until I started using Distress Inks….and now I can’t stop using them…the best part is that even if everyone used the same colours,not two cards would be similar…I have been watching videos for the newly released Distress Oxide ink pads…and they look even more amazing…let’s see when I will be able to get those…my birthday probably.. 🙂

For today’s card I have chosen a peach-ish pink textured cardstock and have die cut a watercolour cardstock panel using a stitched rectangle die first and then die cut one end using the stitched scallop edges die…I then sponged in worn lipstick and weathered wood distress inks and used an embossing folder and water to create a pattern/effect on this panel…
The sentiment has been stamped using watermark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder…I cut out the stamped and coloured in images of a pot and succulents and  placed them below the sentiment…I have used a few sequins to embellish this card…
Thanks for visiting my blog today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!

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…!!

Beautiful Peony Anniversary Card

Layering stamps have made things quite a bit easy for the artistically challenged crafters like me….I had my eye on the Altenew Beautiful Day Stamp set for a while and I finally bought it….the Peony flower is so beautiful and there are layered leaves and a few more stamps in this set…
I chose a black card base and a watercolor paper cardstock….I first stamped the flower and masked it before stamping the leaves and the tiny flower bunches…once that was done,I masked the leaves as well and used a light blue shade of Peerless watercolor to fill up all the white space on the top layer…
I heat embossed the sentiment on a black banner using white embossing powder and placed it on the top layer….I added a few pink sequins to embellish the card….

Thinking Of You Card

So I pulled out black cardstock yet again and decided to make a simple card with it….I think the yellow looks vibrant with the black card base….
There is not much to this card…I started with a black cardstock card base….the top layer is made from watercolour paper which has been washed with yellow watercolour….once that was dry,I stamped the foliage stamps using Versamark ink and heat embossed all the images with white embossing powder…
The sentiment is stamped on a black banner using white pigment ink and I have used gold cardstock to die cut a few sequins to decorate the card…
Hope you’ll have a wonderful and crafty day ahead…Happy crafting…

Distress Ink Lifting Technique Tried Again

Last month I shared a card in which I had tried the Distress Ink Lifting technique(Post#193)for the first time after following a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire…now that was my trial/practice card but I felt it turned out great so was happy to share it on my blog….
I’ve tried that technique again….and hopefully you’ll agree that I’ve done a better job this time…At first it may look like I used Kraft Cardstock for the top layer…..but I’ve not…read on and you’ll find out…
The card base is plain light yellow and the top layer is made from plain white watercolour cardstock….I have stamped the roses and petals with Versamark in and heat embossed them using white embossing powder…now the fun starts….I used Tea Dye Distress inkpad to liberally cover the whole top layer with ink….
Then I used an aqua brush to lift ink from inside the embossed images…and once it was dry,I used mowed lawn,picked raspberry and seedless preserves to colour in….and just so the focus remains on the technique,I have used die cut sequins from gold cardstock as well as a banner for the sentiment…
What do you think about this card..??Hope you liked it…

Post#193 – Distress Inks Lifting Technique Card

Whenever I learn something new from a tutorial,I usually do a trial and then plan out the actual project…today’s card was a trial which turned out pretty great so I went ahead and finished the card with it…
I have followed a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire in which she teaches the Distress Inks Lifting Technique
So I have white heat embossed the image,then covered the whole top layer liberally with dusty concord distress ink…with a brush and water,I painted the inside of the flowers,stems and leaf….this lightened the colour and once dry I painted in the flowers with picked raspberry and the stems with mowed lawn distress ink….
I heat embossed the sentiment with white heat embossing powder as well….rounded two corners of the top layer and the card base….and decorated the card with a few adhesive white pearls…
If you like playing with distress inks then you should try this technique as well….

Hope you liked my card….
