Post#97 – Flower And Glitter Card

I haven’t had much luck with any of the techniques for using a bit of glitter in projects….the glitter usually shakes off…..or it only partially sticks….So after trying out lots of different ways to make glitter stick and not shake off the card..I have finally came up with one technique that works to create this splatter background…
I just mixed a tiny bit of Tombow multi liquid glue with a few drops of water and a bit of glitter…mixed it well with a brush and splattered it on the front of the card…

Once the gold glitter splatter on the white card dried up,I cut out a stamped image of a flower and stem from the Tim Holtz Flower Garden stamp set and stuck it to the card….Finally I added a gold foil paper banner with a sentiment stamp on it…
The glitter splatter looks great doesn’t it??And it doesn’t come off…yay….
Hope you liked it…

Post#96 – Small Tent Box

This is one of the cutest boxes that I’ve made….and yes I made this by following a tutorial by Sam Donald…it’s great for holding a few chocolates or treats or a small item…
It’s a triangle shaped box that opens at the top and the outside case/cover shaped like a tent closes the box nicely…and that means there are no ribbons or other things required to close the box…
I chose a plain grey cardstock for the box and a green and grey printed  paper for the cover…to decorate the box I made a narrow silver banner and added a stamped and punched flower and added the sentiment on a circle at the top…
Hope you liked how my box turned out…

Post#95 – With All My Heart Card

This is a quick card I made using the Heidi Swapp stamp and stencil set called All My Heart….
On the top white cardstock layer I used the heart stencil to print four times with different colours of distress inks…I chose light colours…Then I stamped the sentiment with red dye ink and attached the layer to the red card base…
I added a few shiny heart sequins on the card as well but thanks to my photography skills they look black in this picture… 🙂
I do hope you liked this card…..

Post#94 With Love Balloon Tag

Today I’m sharing a simple tag….I chose a blue cardstock for the  base and punched at the top using a tag topper punch and rounded the corners of the base…
And in an attempt to try Twinkling H2O watercolors again, I coloured a bit of white cardstock using these watercolours and die cut a balloon and ‘with love’ word…the die cuts shimmer beautifully…I embossed the balloon die cut and added a couple of punched hearts in red and gold…and to finish the tag I added bright red and yellow ribbons…
I hope you liked it…

Post#93 Sydney Card using Stampers Anonymous Cityscapes Set

This is the stamp I was looking for when I found the Cityscape stamp set…the other four stamps were a bonus…
I saw a video by Jennifer Rzasa last september in which she had used vellum to create a reflection of the Sydney skyline….and I followed her technique to create the frame for this card….you can see  her video by clicking on this LINK
The frame was made using foil cardstock and nesting dies….once the frame was ready I used two different stamps to create the message ‘hello from Australia’ on the vellum section….
Then I simply adhered the frame to the silver glitter card base…
I had a great time making this card…hope you like it as much as I do…

Post#92 Clear Shaker Invitation using Stampers Anonymous Cityscapes Set(New York)

So this is the fourth project using the Cityscapes stamp set and today’s stamp is of New York cityscape and I’ve managed to use the whole stamp for this one rather than a section of it…
I’ve had this idea of making a clear shaker party invitation for a while now…and once I saw the New York cityscape stamp, I knew exactly what I was going to make with it…
I started by stamping the cityscape image on the back of an acrylic pocket using stazon black ink…..adding sequins to the whole pocket would have made the stamp not stand out so I decided to make two sections….the top part is the shaker section filled with sequin stars….there is also a tiny tab section a the top where the tag can be attached…
I also stamped the word ‘party’ on the top section with white stazon ink…and the shaker section was ready…then I die cut a tag and created a background using the party word stamp repeatedly….then I stamped and heat embossed ‘you’re invited’ on the tag….I used ribbons and gold string to attach the tag to the clear shaker …
I had a lot of fun creating something different today…Hope you liked it..

Post#91 Paris card using Stampers Anonymous Cityscapes Set

I am very excited to share my third project using the Cityscapes stamp set…The cityscape stamp I used for this card was of Paris….
For this card I chose a greyish silver glitter cardstock for the card base…I stamped the Paris cityscape on vellum paper and flipped it over to colour in the sky and the buildings with distress inks…then I attached this vellum section to a polaroid die cut…I also attached a glitter banner with a vellum banner on the polaroid frame to add the sentiment…
This card didn’t need much else so I simply attached the polaroid frame to the cards base and added a few silver star sequins to it…
Hope you liked this card as much as I do…Thanks for stopping by to take a look…

Post#90 London Tags using Stampers Anonymous Cityscapes Set

Today I am sharing two tags I made using the cityscapes stamp set….For this project I used the London cityscape stamp…
After die cutting the tags I coloured in the base section with Peerless watercolors…once that was dry I stamped a section of the stamp on both tags…
For one tag I die cut chevron pieces in blue,red and white inspired by the colours of the Union Jack…and I think the word and meaning stamp of “journey’ goes well with it…the red and blue ribbons add the finishing touch to the tag…
For the second tag I simply stamped the word ‘Many Thanks’ and threaded a ribbon through…I also tied a bakers twine on the ribbon…I decided not to add any embellishments on this tag…
Hope you liked these…

Post#89 Rome Bookmark using Stampers Anonymous Cityscapes Set

Starting today I will be sharing 5 projects which I have made using a Cityscapes stamp set by Stampers Anonymous….
I had been looking for a stamp of something distinctively Australian…I was thinking of something along the lines of landmarks when I saw this beautiful stamp set with cityscapes of five different cities…And once I bought it I decided to create five projects using this set…
Today’s project is a simple bookmark…it is 2.5″ wide and 11.5″ long folded at 5″ and the corners have been rounded using a punch…I then created a background using distress inks and stamped the Colosseum section of the Rome stamp on it…And then I stamped the ‘Be Brave Be Bold’ stamp with red dye ink above it…
Hope you liked it…make sure you take a look at the other four projects I’ll be posting over the next few days…
