Pawsome Valentine’s Day Cards

I used various Simon Says Stamp heart stencils, the Heart Garland background stamp and Pawsome Love stamp set to create a few Valentine’s Day cards that I’m sharing today..

First, I stamped and coloured in all the adorable cat and dog images from Simon Says Stamp Pawsome Love stamp set and die cut them using the coordinating dies..

Next, I created a few backgrounds on the front panels for my cards…using a few shades of pink Distress Oxide inks, I stamped the Heart Garland stamp set..I also used Distress inks and heart stencils to create the other backgrounds…once all the panels were adhered to the card bases, I added all the die cut images…

I stamped various sentiments on white cardstock and layered them on red cardstock before adhering them to the card fronts..I have used sentiments from various Simon Says Stamp sets – Pawsome Love, I Still Do, Lila’s Heart as well as a sentiment from mama Elephant Up With Love stamp set…

I added a few clear confetti sequins to embellish my cards and applied a bit of Nuvo glaze on the heart balloons for a bit of shine…

I hope you liked the Valentine’s Day cards I have shared this year…thank you for visiting my blog…happy papercrafting..!!


Layered Heart Valentine’s Day Card

I have made today’s card using the Birch Press Kaleidoscope Heart Layering Die Set…it was quite easy to die cut three different layers and simply glue them together to get a beautiful heart to use as the main focus of my card..I used red and pink cardstock for the two bottom layers and white glitter cardstock to die cut the top layer…

I then used the WRMK 3d embossing folder and a kraft cardstock to create the front panel on my card…I also used festive berries Distress Oxide ink to sponge in some colour on the sides of the panel…

I stamped the sentiment on a red label using embossing ink and then heat embossed it using some white embossing powder..I layered it with some pink cardstock and adhered it to the heart die cut…

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today….Have a happy and blessed day ahead..


Somebody Loves You

When I saw the adorable images and sweet stamps from the Mama Elephant Up With Love Stamp Set, I knew I had to make cards where these images stood out..

I stamped and coloured in the images using alcohol markers and then die cut them using the coordinating dies…I applied some Nuvo glaze on the heart balloons and set these die cut images aside to dry..

I started with the backgrounds next…using Distress Inks and MFT mini cloud stencil and the MFT grassy edges I created the backgrounds and then used the Lawn Fawn just stitching double rectangles dies to create a kind of a frame around the scene…

I stamped and heat embossed all the sentiments on white cardstock and when I wanted to create the label and the back layer, I simply used the Mama Elephant Quick Stripes dies and die cut multiple sentiments in one go…

Hope you liked the cards I shared today…thank you for visiting my blog…happy papercrafting..!!


Cat And Mouse Valentine’s Cards

To start off my Valentine’s Day cards for this year, I made a couple of quick but funny ones using the Katzelkraft Russian Cats stamp set…I loved the little mischievous looking mouse in this set…

I stamped the cat and mouse stamps using black ink and then added a die cut MFT Love Speech Bubble from black and red cardstock and added it to the card front…I added some glitter on the heart and applied some Nuvo glaze on the red heart for a bit of a shine..

I stamped the sentiment using red ink on a white label and layered it with some red cardstock and adhered to the card front…I added some clear confetti sequins to embellish my cards..

Thanks heaps for stopping by my blog today…hope you will have a happy and crafty day ahead…


Avery Elle Birthday Cards

These cute birthday cards were so much fun to make and didn’t take much time at all…I have used the Avery Ella Sending Hugs stamp and die set…the coordinating die set has an extra die for the envelope with which you can die cut the front section so there is some space to easily tuck in the various animals…

I stamped, coloured in and die cut all the images and coloured the images using alcohol markers and did a bit of shading on the envelopes using Distress Inks and a blending brush..

Using the MFT Micro Cloud Edges and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, I created the backgrounds for all my cards and then adhered the die cut envelopes on the card front…

I stamped the happy birthday sentiment from Avery Elle Simple Sentiments stamp set and adhered it to the card and added a few embellishments to finish my cards

Thank you so much for viewing my cards today….have a happy and blessed day ahead..


Same Stamp Set, Different Colouring Mediums

For my first post for 2021, I’m sharing three cards in which I have used three different Altenew colouring mediums…the stamp, die and stencil bundle I used is also from Altenew – Simple Roses…let me know which card you liked the most..

My first card has a die cut background using Altenew Snowflake Stars Cover B…to make the die cut background stand out a bit, I used cream cardstock….I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and then coloured them in using Altenew Water Colour Brush Markers…I also added some shimmer once the images were dry…the sentiment is from Altenew Label Love stamp set…

For my second card I tried out the new Altenew Watercolor Pencils…if the colouring looks patchy, it’s because of my inability to use them properly…I added the coloured and die cut images to front of my card on which I have lightly sponged the edges with wild honey Distress Ink…I stamped the sentiment from Altenew Balloon Bunch stamp set on a pink cardstock and die cut it using a circle die…I layered it with a black cardstock to make the sentiment pop..

The third card was very quick to make…I stamped the images on white cardstock and then used the coordinating stencil and ripe persimmon Distress Ink to colour in the flowers….I re-stamped the images using my MISTI and then die cut them…I splattered some black paint on my card front before adhering the images…the sentiment is from Altenew Birthday Builder stamp set and once stamped, I die cut it using the Altenew Featured Sentiments Die set…

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today…hope you will have a creative day ahead…

Yeti Christmas!

I’m sharing two slimline Christmas cards today…both feature the MFT Die-namics Christmas Lights with the Beast Friends stamp set…I like how the Christmas Lights die set fills up the card front quite easily and looks great too…

I used Distress Oxide inks on a green cardstock front panel for my first card….I splattered some water and some silver paint for effect and then added the die cut elements and the stamped and coloured in images…the sentiment is from a Taylored Expression stamp set called Simple Strips – Christmas..

My second card is much simpler…I added the die cut Chirstmas lights to a black front panel and then added the Yeti image…I stamped the sentiment in black and red ink and then added some rhinestones to embellish my card…the sentiment I have used is from the Merry & Bright stamp set by MFT…

Thank you so much for visiting my blog…stay safe and have a happy and crafty day ahead..!!


Pretty Poinsettias Christmas Cards

My favorite die set for Christmas cards this year has been the Poinsettia 3D die set by Altenew…I have made so many cards with this die…for a couple of cards I used coloured cardstock to simply die cut and put together and for others, I chose to watercolour the die cuts…

All my cards have a stripy backgrounds which I chose to provide a bit of interest but at the same time to make the poinsettia flowers stand out on my cards…

I have used Distress Inks and Oxide Inks to colour in the background stripes for these two cards…I heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock using Altenew Antique Gold embossing powder and then die cut it out using the Featured Sentiments die set…to embellish these cards I have added a few gold confetti sequins..

Now these next two cards were fun and quick to make…once I had the 3D die cut elements coloured using the Altenew Watercolor brush markers, I splattered some white paint on them for effect….I used dark green front panels for the background and to add interest, I simply painted a few stripes using some gold watercolour and a wide brush..

I put the flowers together and adhered them to the card front and then added the gold heat embossed sentiment which is from Clearly Besotted Happy Everything stamp set..

I’m happy you stopped by my blog today….hope you will have a happy and blessed day!
