Post#160 Bicycle Stamp Card

Valentines Day is just a couple of weeks away so I thought to make a few cards for this special day….this is quite a simple card…nothing over the top or fancy….but it still delivers the message clearly…
On a red card base I have used a white top layer….and on the top layer I first stamped a few border images in light colours and then stamped the bicycle stamp near the base….I also stamped a sentiment stamp in bright red…
Finally I adhered a few heart sequins on the card….
Hope you liked this card…

Post#159 Tea Bag Pouch

Tea is getting fancier these days….and so many flavours too….
This tea bag pouch is very simply an envelope created by using the WRMK 1 2 3 punch board…you just measure the tea bag and look for the correct size envelope measurements on the board…
But since I would like it to be a bit special when I gift it to someone,I have decorated it with a ribbon and string and a few other thing like the butterfly die cut and the stamped banner underneath…
The idea was shared in a very nice tutorial by Sam Hammond(Pootles.co.uk) – Tea Bag Envelope Pouch
I’m quite happy with how my envelope pouch turned out….Hope you liked it too…

Post#158 Lots & Lots of Balloons Birthday Card

Stamping images repeatedly to create a unique background for a card is so much fun….its also fills up the spaces which means you don’t need many embellishments for it…. 
On today’s card I have used three shades of pink ink and three balloon stamps….
I started with a white card base and have used a white top layer as well….After stamping all the balloons,I stamped the balloon strings in blue ink….the sentiment has been stamped with Versamark ink and gold heat embossing powder… 
I have used sequins to decorate the card…
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#156 Shaker Money Pouch using Fuse Tool

Ever since I saw the tutorial for a shaker money holder/pouch by Vicki, it has been on the top of my ‘try to make’ list…..the only thing stopping me was that I didn’t have enough sequins to fill the pouch…so in the end I just couldn’t wait any longer and this is my first ever attempt…I’m sure I will try more of these when I finally am able to buy a big bag of sequins…but here’s the first…
If you click on the link and follow the tutorial video in Vicki’s post,you will understand how easy these pouches/money holders are to create with a fuse tool….
I actually placed the die cut and stamped sentiments inside the pouch,which I later realised that I shouldn’t have…anyways,that was the front of the pouch…..on the back of the pouch I simply stamped with white stazon ink…
To decorate the pouch I have used multi-coloured rhinestones….and to close the pouch at the top I have used a wide ribbon and closed it at the top using a gold string…
Hope you liked this…..

Post#155 Thanks A Lot Card

This card would have been a simple black and white card but I added a bit of bright red just to make it eye catching….
The card base is plain black…..the top layer is white which has been stamped and heat embossed with black embossing powder…I then added a thin strip of black glitter cardstock and a strip of silver card at the base of the top layer…and stamped the sentiment at the top in red ink…
I rounded all the corners of the top layer and card base before attaching it…..and finally I added a few red rhinestones on the card….
Hope you liked this card…

Post#154 For You Card

I haven’t used kraft cardstock for a couple of weeks now and I really wanted to create this particular design using both plain and printed kraft paper…
The plain kraft cardstock has been used for the card base….then there is a layer of a swirly print kraft paper….and the top layer is made from Vellum paper…on all four sides of this vellum paper I have used two of the stitched border diee to give it a bit of texture…
In the middle of the card I have placed an embossed tag die cut from cold cardstock…the tag has a die cut word ‘For You’ on it as well as a two gold heat embossed pansy flowers and two leaves…
The gold and lavender sequins not only decorate the card but they also hide the glue dots that have been used to attach  the vellum to the layer below it….

Hope you liked my card….

Post#153 Anniversary Card

I find it quite difficult with some cards to click pictures that show all the elements of the card clearly….I have clicked countless pictures of this card and constantly adjusted my camera and light but one or the other element was always out of focus…and it’s only when you look closely,you will see a silver string wrapped around the heart….
The card base is plain white with a silver layer and a white top layer which has been embossed using Love Spun embossing folder….I have then placed a large glitter die cut heart on it which has a silver string wrapped around it….and then  I added small punched out elements on it as well as a ‘Happy Anniversary’ banner…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#152 Black & Colourful Birthday Card

Black cardstock has always been a bit tricky for me to make cards from….something or the other usually goes wrong…especially while stamping….So this time I managed to make a black card with no mistakes….mainly because I did not use stamps on it… 🙂 🙂
The card base and top layer has been rounded on two corners only….and on the top layer I have added strips of brightly coloured paper made by using Peerless watercolors…
The sentiment has been die cut from green glitter cardstock and adhered to the card…..I have added sequins in various sizes all over the card as well…
Even though it’s a black card,I feel it looks really bright and colourful…Hope you like it as much as I do…
