Mr & Mrs – Wedding Congratulations Cards

I am sharing two wedding congratulations cards today….the design and layout is the same but I have made one with a pink theme and another with a lavender theme…my apologies for the bad pictures, even though I tried many times – the gold foil cardstock that I have used to die cut the mr & mrs does not show well…

On the two watercolour cardstock front panels, I stamped the Mama Elephant Wild Meadow borders and gold heat embossed them….I coloured them in using Zig markers and gold heat embossed half of the sentiment as well…

I die cut the mr & mrs word die from gold foil cardstock and layered it with the same die cut from white craft foam and then adhered them to the card front to complete the sentiment…I punched out some butterflies and coloured them in before adhering them on the card front…

Wishing You Happiness – Stamped Shaker Card

A couple of weeks ago I saw a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire where she made many adorable stamped shaker cards…you do need stamps with a coordinating die for this technique and it was quite a simple and easy process…I think I’ll be making a few more of these soon!!

I stamped and gold heat embossed a large feather die on a white panel from Earth Has Music stamp set by Simon Says Stamp and coloured it in using Zig markers..I added a piece of white foam negative section which I die cut using the coordinating die….I added some gems and closed the shaker section using a piece of acetate…

I used the coordinating die again to die cut on the front panel and adhered the feather shaker piece underneath…there are lots of ways to create/assemble this shaker card but this is just how I did this one…I added a bit of Distress Inks on the edges of the front panel and adhered a stamped sentiment strip as well as some gold confetti sequins to embellish my card…
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog….Hope you will have a cheerful and blessed day today..Happy crafting!!

Huge Birthday Wishes

I’m sharing a cute card today which was very quick to make as well…I have used the MFT grassy edges stencil in this card and I love how it adds depth to the card with actually adding all the layers…which means that it is very very post friendly.. 🙂
Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by adding the grassy edges on a plain white front panel… I haved used various Distress inks with the stencil…I then used a large stitched rectangle die to emboss a border around the panel and then adhered this panel to a plain white card base….
Next, I stamped the giraffe, elephant and little bird images on a separate piece of cardstock and coloured them in using my Zig pens…once dry, I die cut them and adhered them to my card front using some adhesive foam underneath…I also applied some Nuvo glaze on these die cuts for a bit of shine..

Finally, I stamped the sentiment using black ink and added a few jewels to embellish my card..

Thank you so very much for stopping by my blog today…I haven’t been able to add new posts recently but I will try my best and update my blog again soon..hope you will have a happy and crafty day today..

World’s Greatest Daddy

With Father’s Day coming up in a few days time(2nd September in Australia), I thought to make and share a card for the occasion…I chose the cute dragons from Mama Elephant stamps for my card and the background was pretty quick to create too…before I begin to tell you more about my card, here’s wishing a very Happy Father’s Day to all the awesome dads out there…!!

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by stamping and colouring in the dragons using my Zig clean colour markers and once dry, I die cut them using the coordinating dies…I then die cut two pieces for the background and coloured them in using the following shades of  Distress Inks – antique linen,rusty hinge, peeled paint and mowed lawn…

I used salty ocean Distress Ink and MFT cloud stencil on a plain white background panel and adhered this panel to the card base…I added the two  die cut backgrounds on the card front and then using some adhesive foam, I adhered the two dragons on my card..
I stamped the sentiment using black ink and added a small red die cut heart next to the ‘baby’ dragon and my card was ready…

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…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

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…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

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….

G’Day Mate

As I was making the background for this card, I wasn’t sure it would work with the images and my layout…but once I die cut the front panel and added a green dotty paper behind it, it all seemed to work somehow…and I’m still shaking my head as I have no idea what exactly made things work here…!!

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by printing random triangles on a piece of white cardstock using the triangle stencil and Distress Inks…I have used scattered straw, tumbles glass and shaded lilac here..I then die cut this panel using a stitched rectangle die and also embossed one smaller stitched rectangle border on this panel…

On a piece of Bristol cardstock, I stamped the Kangaroo, Kookaburra, tree and grass images and coloured them in with Zig markers and a water brush and once dry, I die cut these images and adhered them to the white front panel…
I adhered the green and white polka dot patterned paper on a white card base and then added the white panel on top…I stamped the sentiment on a speech bubble and adhered it to the card front so it seems that the Kangaroo is saying hello to the Kookaburra…

To embellish my card I have used clear sequins and applied some Nuvo glaze to the two Aussie animals..

Hip, Hippo, Hooray!

Some plans or ideas work so well in your head but when it comes to reality, you have to adjust and put on your thinking cap so you can find the next best option…the results can go either way, and thankfully for today’s card I was quite happy with the end result….I was able to alter the die a bit so it could accommodate my card design..

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I started by die cutting the collage panel from 110lb white cardstock twice and the cut off the center sections of the collage frame to make a larger area for the cake and hippo images…I then layered the two frames and sponged all the edges using spun sugar Distress ink and adhered this collage frame onto a die cut pink front panel before adhering it to the card base…
Next I die cut a rectangle piece for the center section and sponged the edges of this with the same ink…I stamped little images on the white square sections that were die cut from the panel earlier and coloured them and sponged the edges as well…I then adhered all these panels inside the collage frame…
On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped coloured in and cut out the hippos and the cake and adhered them to the large center panel…I stamped the sentiment just above using a dark pink dye ink…
To embellish my card I have added a lot of tiny pink star sequins and applied some Nuvo glaze to some of the images…

I will be entering this card in the MFT card challenges for the birthday project as this month’s challenge theme is cakes, cupcakes and candles…and it seems I’ve been able to add all three to my card…
Thanks for visiting my blog today…Hope you will have a great day ahead….!!

Pretty Pink Flowers For Scrapbook Boutique May Challenge

I was inspired by one of the pictures in this month’s mood board for the Scrapbook Boutique challenge…..but I did not have any stamps that were long stems with flowers….that would have been so easy….but this is a challenge..and the reason why I love such challenges is that they make you think creatively…so I masked the images and extended them to get the look that I wanted…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

Here is the mood board for this month’s challenge…I chose to replicate the pink flowers and the embossing is idea was inspired by the tea cup..for the die cut sentiment I chose the colour of the berries..
I started by stamping the flowers a few times on a white watercolour panel with watermark ink and heat embossed them with rose gold embossing powder…to extend the branches, I simply masked the top flower and buds and repeated the process….I coloured in the flowers with my brand new Zig  clean colour  markers and I washed the background with a very light blue watercolour…once dry, I heat embossed half of the sentiment with the same rose gold embossing powder and adhered this panel to a plain white card base…

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

I then die cut the word ‘you’ from red glitter cardstock as well as white craft foam and layered them before adhering it on the card….I also die cut three sequins from the same cardstock to embellish my card..

I have really enjoyed making this card for the challenge….thank  you so much for stopping by my blog to take a look at my card…hope you will have a fabulous day ahead…happy crafting..!!

If Friends Were Flowers – Time Out Challenge #109

For ‘Inspired By Words’ challenge #109 at the Time Out Challenges blog, my first idea was to make a flowery card with or without the friend theme…but the more I thought about it, the more I felt like I should make something one of my friends would have a good laugh at….so I chose this funny looking cow stamp from Katzelkraft and made this card…(can you tell I’m a big fan of comedy??)

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

This is the quote for the challenge…

After die cutting the front panel from Bristol Smooth cardstock, I stamped the cow image and the sentiment using Versafine onxy black ink and quickly heat embossed them using clear embossing powder….I then masked the cow and used stencils and Distress inks to create the back ground…
I have used squeezed lemonade and carved pumpkin with MFT radiating rays stencil and mowed lawn and peeled paint Distress inks with MFt drifts and hills stencil…I also splattered a bit of water for effect…

After removing the mask, I coloured in the cow image using a beige Zig maker and a water brush…once dry, I adhered this panel to a plain white card base…
On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped, clear heat embossed and coloured in the little flowers and die cut them with the coordinating dies…I adhered them on the card front and placed one of the flowers(without the stem) above the cow’s teeth using a small foam adhesive square…I used my black Copic multi liner to draw a small stem so it seems that the cow is holding a flower between her teeth…

To finish my card, I added a small coloured in heart and used Nuvo glaze on all the flowers for a bit of shine..
Hope my card made you smile as well…thank you for stopping by my blog today…Happy crafting..!!
