Post#16 Butterfly Thanks Card

Today I’m sharing with you a card in one of my favourite colour combinations….Blue,White and Silver…
It’s a simple card on which I used a chevron stencil and blue ink to make a printed background….I also used a paper mask to make the print go at an angle rather than straight…then I stamped a sentiment above it….below the print I put on a silver glitter tape and a die cut butterfly on top…a bit of sequins and rhinestones added some sparkle to it…
I like this card and I hope you do as well.

Post#15 Polaroid Frame Card

I have a couple of these Polaroid dies and before now I’ve have not been able to come up with a good design for them….
On a textured white card base I added a camera print paper…this part was easy…then I die cut the Polaroid die 3 times and stuck them together to give a bit of dimension…at the back of the frame I added a piece of vellum paper which I stamped,heat embossed and coloured in…lastly,I added a sentiment at the top which bring all the layers together…
Thank you for visiting my blog.
Hope you liked this card.

Post#14 Wine Bottle Gift Tag

Today I’m sharing something different…It’s a gift tag for a wine bottle…It easily slips over the neck of the bottle…and that’s all you need to dress up a simple wine bottle…
I love the greenish colour of this bottle…and went with the theme while choosing paper colour…added a paper bow and a button with string….and below it I added a stamped and heat embossed vellum paper tag…
Now I’m already thinking of more ideas for these kind of tags ….definitely have to try  a few more of them…
Hope you liked this tag.

Post#13 A Simple Thank You Card

Today I’m sharing a simple card….It has no layers and still looks good…
The Kraft Cardstock base makes the colours of the die cut word pop out…I was going to use a white card base but changed it to kraft card at the very last minute…I’m glad I did…
Just added few sequins here and there and the card was ready…simple and quick…
Hope you like it.

Post#12 Flower Stamped Tag

So now you know I really like flower stamps….Here’s a simple tag using one of those….
Sometimes less is more…..and for this tag I did just that….kept things simple….I felt that there was no need to colour in the stamped image and no need for any bling…so I stamped the same flower three times and left the rest of the space clean and untouched…
A little die cut word was added and the word ‘with’ stamped in red above it…added a ribbon on top and that’s it…all done…
I hope you like it.

Post#11 Flower Card

Today I’m sharing this flower card….I recently bought this stamp set and am pretty sure it will be one of my favorite sets…this is the first card I’ve made using this set…
I love clicking pictures of flowers, arranging fresh cut flowers, making paper flowers etc….so I usually get attracted to flower stamps…
For this card I made a bright background using distress inks…the flowers were first stamped then coloured in using Peerless watercolors…and then cut out and glued to the background base.
I also used a strip of vellum paper for the very first time….this allows the stems of the flowers to be a bit slightly visible from under the sentiment…
Hope you like this card.

Post#10 Circle Shaped Card

From time to time I keep trying out various sizes and shapes of card…..Today its a circle shaped card….
And for the colourful background of this card I tried something for the very first time…I used the sunburst technique on a circle…I have tried that on rectangular and square card layouts before but never on a circle…quite happy about this…
On the purple circular base I added a die cut scalloped circle in off white as the first layer and placed the colourful circle on top of that….then added a punched out flower in orange and in the middle I added the sentiment punched out by a circle punch ….The white stitch effect around the card  was made using a gel pen…
Hope you liked it.

Post#9 Tag on a card

I see a lot of cards these days with tags on them…..and I do think its a great idea…and it looks good too…
Earlier I used to add as much as possible on to one card..thinking it would make it look prettier…only it turned out too busy for the eye to focus on anything….slowly I’m learning to tone things down and maintain a focus point in my cards…
It is a learning process for me…sometimes I get things right and sometimes I learn what not to do…
Here I’ve used a simple kraft cardstock for the card base and added a tag on which I used watercolours and then added a stamped and coloured in image…also added a few transparent sequins..
Hope you liked this simple card.

Post#8 A Colourful Tag

Whenever I think of kids,I think of bright colours….so here’s a tag I made which would be just perfect on a present for a kid….or even someone vibrant and young at heart…
Tags don’t take long to make…and this one didn’t either….as soon as I had the colours for the banners chosen,it came together pretty quickly…
I used 2 base layers for the tag and embossed the top white layer with a chevron embossing folder….then attached the 5 banner strips….and then the gold and yellow butterflies….added a tiny stamped and punched sentiment near the bottom ..finally put on the ribbons and tadaaaa….the tag was ready…
Hope you liked the tag.
