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#149 Embossed Birthday Card Wrapped With Gold String

After making quite a few brightly coloured cards,I wanted to make a card with a light colour theme….
First the top layer of this card has been sponged using various distress inks….then it was embossed using the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder….I wrapped a gold string around it and glued three thin strips of paper on one side…
For the sentiment stamps I used gold cardstock and stamped with black stazon ink and then punched them out using circle punches….to decorate the card I have used various tiny punches with the same gold cardstock as well as a few rhinestones…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#140 Thank You For Your Kindness

At the start of this year,I’d like to thank everyone who has encouraged me a lot with their kind words and appreciation….means a lot to me….

The card I’m sharing today is made from Kraft cardstock….the top layer has been stamped with tangerine ink and a leaf stamp repeatedly to create the background….Then I randomly coloured a piece of paper with peerless watercolors and die cut them with a leaf die….

I have arranged a gold string on the top layer and attached it as well as the two leaves…the sentiment has been stamped on a gold cardstock label… added a few sequins as well…

Hope you liked this card…

Thank you for stopping by to take a look…

Post#139 Happy New Year 2016

2015 seemed to have flown by….and a brand new year has begun….Happy New Year to you and yours and wishing you the very best in 2016….
My new year card has a gold cardstock base…and the top layer is in aqua green cardstock on which I stamped various size circle stamps with Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder…I then cut a 2″ strip of vellum paper and used a border punch on both sides before attaching it to the top layer…
On one side of the top layer I attached one strip of gold glitter adhesive tape and another in purple…next to it I threaded a few sequins on a gold string and wrapped it around the top layer a few times….
For the sentiment I die cut the Happy New Year word twice from purple card stock and once from gold foil paper and glued them together before attaching to the card…
Hope you liked this card…Have a great 2016….

Post#137 – Gift Card Pouch For Christmas

I’m sure there are heaps of people who resort to gift cards during Christmas instead of presents…I find them quite useful and practical myself….it’s not easy to buy personalised gifts for each and everyone you exchange gifts with…
These are also a very handy as a last minute present….It’s Christmas Eve today….where would you even find the time to go shopping for a present  now???  🙂
So how can we make these gift cards a bit more special….by creating a nice packaging for them so that the person receiving it can see the effort made for them…
This pouch has been made using Kraft cardstock with WRMK envelope punch board by punching,scoring and folding only 3 sides…on the front I added a printed panel with a border punched strip underneath…I then added 3 rectangular pieces out of which the top one is a printed cut out..
To finish the pouch I added a few rhinestones and a bit of gold string…
Hope you like this…

Post#126 – Christmas Bottle Tag

I knew I was definitely going to make a few bottle tags for Christmas this year…here’s the first one I made…I decided to use a printed sentiment that came with my Christmas cardstock pack instead of stamping…so the making this tag was a much faster process than usual…
The base is made from plain green card stock which has been given a flag shape at the base using the WRMK banner punch board….I then added a light green layer…and on top of that I added 3 strips of printed paper and punched both sides of each one with the banner punch…
Lastly I added a printed red layer on the top…it also has gold string attached underneath…
Hope you liked this tag…

Post#117 – Anniversary Card Gold & Silver

Today I’m sharing an Anniversary card in gold and silver….I wanted to try gold and silver together and see how it looks…It could’ve been finished a bit better but I still think it looks quite good…
So I started by stamping circles of various sizes with gold and silver pigment ink on vellum paper…once that dried I placed it on a silver top layer and it is held in place by silver and gold strings that I wound around both the layers…then I adhered it to the silver card base….
For the sentiment I die cut two circles using the stitched circle dies in gold and silver and stamped on the silver circle….I attached these near the base of the card….
Hope you like it…

Post#111 Love Heart Theme – With Love Tag

I created this tag base using the same technique as the one in Post 109…the embossing folder used in this one is called Diamonds by Kaisercraft….after embossing I created the watercolour effect using distress inks..
I wanted this tag to have quite a bit of delicate layers so I used a large punched flower and a die cut stitched border circle and attached them to the tag…then I added a bit of gold string…and finally two banners layers…the top layer banner has the die cut word ‘with love’ on it as well as a few heart sequins….
Hope you liked this tag…

Post#84 Button Punch Card

I bought the button punch a very long time ago….but I have not used it much at all…somehow I could not come up with ideas…even though this one punch can punch out 5 different types of button shapes…
So I sat down and took just one of the shapes to design this card…On a white base card I used a white top layer as well…I punched four circles on it and attached it to the base card…on each one of these circle spaces I attached four different coloured buttons punches…and to give it a bit more of a button effect, I used a thin gold string to sew through…
I stamped the sentiment at the top of the card…then cut out a stamped image of a little girl and adhered it to the front of the card using adhesive foam squares…
Hopefully I will be able to think of more ideas to create something with my button punch…
Thanks for taking a look at my post today…Hope you liked this card…
