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..

Thank you for stopping by my blog today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!

Sending A Little Sunshine Your Way

I have made today’s card specifically for entering in the Scrapbook Boutique February 2017 Challenge…I had so much fun making a card for the December 2016 challenge and was waiting for the challenges to restart in this year..
The moodboard this time has a lot of beach/summer pics with lots of yellows and blues…and I really don’t have any stamps, images or dies for that theme so had to go through all my stamps and dies a few times to finally come up with this card….it would be a great card to send to cheer up a friend who is facing the harsh winter chill at the moment(while we have summers in Australia)…

The card base is plain white and the top layer has been cut to size from watercolour cardstock…I then used the puffy cloud border dies and placed them on the top layer and embossed with them so they look like waves…I have used Salty Ocean and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks to create the background on the top layer….
I stamped the sentiment on the top layer and heat embossed it using a copper coloured embossing powder…
On a separate piece of cardstock,I first stamped the seal image using Cool Graphite dye ink by Ranger and then re-stamped it using watermark ink and quickly heat embossed it using clear embossing powder…I also stamped the sun and cut it out as well….I placed the sun on the tip of the seal’s nose to look like its balancing a ball…
I’m glad you stopped by to take a look at my card today….you will find all the details of the challenge on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog…Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!

Hello Sunshine

Today I’m sharing a bright and cute card with lots of ‘pink’…I think it would be a good one to say hello and cheer someone up at the same time…
I chose a black card base and a white top layer…I used a couple of shades of pink distress inks and sponged them in to cover the top layer…then I stamped the background using a pink dye ink and few small stamps…I also stamped the sentiment at the top,leaving space for the little Polaroid section…
On a separate piece of cardstock stamped and coloured in the little girl in a bear onesie image and masked it to sponge in the background then cut it to size so it fits the back of the black Polaroid die cut…
Finally I adhered a few enamel dots to embellish the card…
Thank you for visiting today…Happy crafting…!!!

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….!!

Bright Cards

It’s spring now….my favorite season….there are new leaves on the trees and the flowers are starting to bloom everywhere….and the days are longer…and it’s bright and sunshiny on most days…and with a bit of inspiration from the weather,I made a couple of bright cards that I’m sharing with you today…

For the first card,I chose a bright orange card base….on the white top layer, I randomly stamped the dotted squares stamps in various sizes using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder….I then used bright Peerless watercolors to colour them in….

Once the top layer was dry,I adhered a vellum paper layer above it by wrapping a gold string around it…I then stamped and die cut a frame and stamped in the sentiment as well and placed it on the vellum layer…I also die cut a few sequins from gold foil and orange cardstock to embellish the card…

For my second card I chose a plain yellow card base….then,on a plain white top to layer,I stamped the clouds,sun,sentiment and little hearts and adhered it on one side of the card…I also adhered a couple of thin strips from blue glitter cardstock and orange foil cardstock onto the card…
