Bird & Butterflies- Scrapbook Boutique August Challenge

As soon as I saw the moodboard for this month’s challenge at the Scrapbook Boutique blog,I went through all my stamps..didn’t find anything I liked at first…a weird umbrella stamp from ages ago,small or odd looking bird stamps and no shoes stamps at all…got quite a few ideas that didn’t work…but I kept going and here are the cards that I created for this challenge…

For my first card I chose a light grey textured cardstock for a top folding card base…I stamped the big top stamp twice on a white panel using cool graphite dye ink and then layered it with a dark grey cardstock..I added some craft foam under the top panel before adhering it to the card base…

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped the large butterfly using squeezed lemonade Distress Ink..I also stamped another butterfly using Versamark ink on Vellum and heat embossed it using silver embossing powder..I cut both butterflies out,layered them and placed them on the card front…

To make sure that the punched out butterflies are the same colour as the main butterfly,I stamped a mirror stamp using the same ink onto a scrap piece of cardstock and the punched the butterflies…I adhered morning dew Nuvo drops as embellishments on these butterflies…

I stamped the sentiment on a light grey banner using the same grey ink as the front panel and adhered it to the card front using some craft foam…

I made this second card before the butterflies card and when I was putting it together,I made a bit of a mistake on it…had a mind blank moment so I set it aside till I could fix it and started on another card…I blame it on the flu that I’ve just been gifted by my elder daughter.. 😦

I first die cut a white top layer using large cross stitched rectangle die and stamped the bird image using buttered popcorn Ranger dye ink….I re-stamped it on my Mini Misti using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with a pearl embossing powder…

I masked the image and used a cloud stencil and Distress Inks to print the clouds all over the front panel..I used hickory smoke and weathered wood shades here..I also splaterred a bit of grey ink all over…

I stamped the sentiment on a white strip and layered it with a grey glitter cardstock…added some black craft foam underneath it before adhering it to the card front…I also stamped a few red hearts above the sentiment…

I had already fixed and re-stamped the sentiment two times and something or the other went wrong..and had glued this one onto the card when I saw a small red dot on it…it didn’t come off with the sand eraser so I just went ahead and added the rhinestones and finished my card…I think I will re-do the sentiment label once I’m feeling a bit better..

No Good Reason to Act Our Age

Most of my school time friends and I are fast approaching our milestone birthdays and we keep talking about it and make fun of how we will be counted as ‘old’ once we’ve reached that stage…so when I saw this Art Impressions stamp set,I couldn’t resist getting it…was laughing all the time I was making this card…!!

I started with a top folding Kraft cardstock card base and then cut a smaller front panel from black cardstock…on this front panel,I printed the spotty pattern using white pigment ink and a stencil..
I then die cut a panel from watercolour cardstock using mini scallop rectangle die and stamped the big top stamp set to create the rays…I used Fossilised Amber Distress Oxide ink to stamp it and then sprayed plenty of water so the a lighter colour spreads to the unstamped section of the watercolour panel…once dry,I stamped the sentiment in black ink and adhered this panel to the card front…
On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped  and coloured in the ‘cool lady’ on the skateboard…I cut the image out and used adhesive foam underneath before placing it on the card…and finally I used black Nuvo drops to embellish my card…
Do you like sending funny cards to your friends??I think this one would definitely get a good laugh from quite a few of mines…Thank you for stopping by my blog today…hope you will ave a fabulous day ahead…happy crafting..!!

Katzelkraft Dogs Rubber Stamps – What’s Shaking?

Today I’m sharing the fifth card that I have made using the Katzelkraft dogs stamp set…I think today’s card is perfect for a guy…nothing fancy and no girly colours… 🙂

On a dark grey card base,I adhered a kraft cardstock die cut top layer which is the same  size as the card front…I then cut a smaller panel from white cardstock and stamped the Wplus9 big top stamp twice using grey ink…I spattered some gold paint on this panel as well as die embossed it using a pierced rectangle die…
I adhered this panel to the card front and the adhered the coloured in and cut out dog image on it…I stamped the sentiment on a thin long white label and adhered it to the card using some foam squares..
And since I couldn’t leave it at that…I added a few clear sequins to embellish this card which I’m sure most men wouldn’t even notice…ha ha…
I just have one more card to share(for now)…which I will share in my next post…
Thank you for your visit today…I’m so glad you stopped by…Have a wonderful day ahead…!!

Programming Happy Times Ahead

I like using foil cardstock in my cards but they never show up good in pictures…I tried keeping my card flat but the picture didn’t look too great either..I really need tips and advice for this so let me know if you have some for me…


I started with a silver cardstock for the card base and cut out a large dotted rectangle mat layer using silver foil cardstock…I also die cut a smaller rectangle top panel on which I stamped the Wplus9 Big Top stamp twice to create the rays background…I also stamped the sentiment on this panel using blue dye ink..

On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the robot image and coloured it in using watercolour pencils and Dove blender pen…I then cut it out and placed it on my card..

To embellish this card I have used a few clear sequins in various sizes..and my card was ready…
While this card did not take too long to create but as I said before – it took a long time to click a picture in which the foil cardstock shows properly…and laying it flat was the only way I could get a decent picture…what do you think..??
