Post#189 – You Brighten My Day Card

I have now started paying attention to all the small/tiny stamps in my collection,and am having a lot of fun by making card backgrounds using them….
The card base is a plain green one….and the top layer is white on which I have repeatedly stamped the small apple,orange and pear stamps….and because the background turned out so bright,I chose a sentiment that reflected the mood of the card….’you’ word has been die cut from red glitter cardstock and placed on the card…I then stamped the words ‘brighten my day’ underneath…
I added two strips of gold and green glitter cardstock on one side and also added a few rhinestones under the sentiment….
Hope you liked this card…

Post#167 Love You Card

Valentines day is just a week away and I just realised that I have not made as many cards as I had thought I would….Better late than never…so I’m starting now…
The base of the card is plain blue and the top layer is white….On the top layer I have stamped the large word ‘love’ with red dye ink….I then used a lot if bright coloured inks to stamp various flower stamps on only two sides of the card…
I die cut the word ‘Love’ from blue glitter cardstock and kept it aside….Then I die cut the same word from the top layer and replaced and inset the blue one in it….I have used light blue adhesive pearls in various sizes as embellishments…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#157 You Are Pretty Darn Amazing Card

I realised I had a lot of butterfly stamps,so I took them all out of my stamps folder and quickly created a background using those stamps…
I stamped all the butterflies with Ranger Java Bean dye ink on white cardstock and coloured them in…..
For this card I used an orange card base and and extra layer/mat in yellow and then added the top layer….on the top layer I have used a strip of brown glitter cardstock on one side and also the die cut word you from the same glitter cardstock….this word die has been placed above the sentiment that has been stamped on a banner made from gold cardstock…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#110 Love Heart Theme Water Stamped Card

I saw these gorgeous cards by Jennifer McGuire and almost immediately sat down to make one myself….so I made this card and clicked a quick picture of it with my mobile and emailed it to Jennifer…and I’m happy to report that she liked this card….yay…  🙂  🙂
Here is the link to the tutorial – Stamping With Water by Jennifer Mcguire
The technique is very simple and is called stamping with water…you use distress ink to cover the paper and then lightly spritz your stamp with water and stamp it…the reaction of the distress ink with the water creates this effect..I used a large word ‘Love’ rubber stamp for this card….and attached this section to the white card base then rounded the corners…
I added two strips of black and glitter like Jennifer….and then under the word love I added the die cut word you….the top die cut is from silver glitter paper and there are two of the same die cuts in red…when gluing these together I slightly moved the top glitter layer so that the red is visible as well…
To finish the card I punched out three small red hearts and adhered them to the card…
Hope yo like this card as much as I do…

Post#101 – Love You Polaroid Card

I wanted to make a card with a lot of colours in it but at the same time I wanted those colours to not take too much space on the card so it doesn’t look too full…
So I started with a plain white cardstock for the card base….then I die cut two small polaroid frames from aqua and pink cardstock…I attached a printed yellow and white grid print paper for the aqua frame and added a red punched heart and you word on it….For the pink frame I simply used a white watercolour paper and coloured it in with peerless watercolors…
I attached both the polaroid frames to the card and added a few sequins here and there as well…
Hope you like this card….
