Post#187 – Bright Birthday Card

I love the versatility of distress inks….they blend so well and also react with water/liquids to create a great dimension to any design…
For today’s card, I started with a white plain cardstock base…The top layer is also white but has been coloured in with bright distress inks…once it was fully covered,I misted an embossing folder with a water filled spritzer and quickly stamped the top layer and dried it with a heat gun…then stamped the sentiment and used gold heat embossing powder for it…….I also added two thin strips of glitter cardstock at the base of the top layer before adhering it to the card base….
I stamped and coloured in the image of a little girl on a separate piece of cardstock and then cut it out….I have used adhesive sponge squares underneath the image to make it pop up on the card….and finally I have added quite a few sequins to decorate the card…
Hope you liked this one…

Post#184 Just Saying Hello

I’ve had this stamp set called Bubblegum Hills by Kaisercraft for a verrrryy long time but I haven’t used it at all…every time I got the stamps out, I put them back as I had no idea what to create with it….and today I’ve finally put them back after using one of the stamps in the set…
The card base is plain blue…For the top layer I have used distress inks to create a bright background….I then stamped the image with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder…
The sentiment is stamped on a green banner and heat embossed as well…I did not want to add any more colours to this card so I used clear sequins to decorate it….
Hope you liked it…

LEAP DAY SPECIAL BLOG POST – No Fuss Colouring Technique Cards

It’s the 29th of February and I’m going to celebrate this day which comes only once in four years….I don’t know if my blog will still be running four years from now….so I’ve decided not to number my post for today….not only that,I’m sharing a special technique that I’ve learn’t from the latest issue of Australian Cardmaking,Stamping and Papercraft magazine (Vol. 22 No.8)..

The no fuss colouring technique tutorial was by Marion Vagg and her card was so pretty….She has used the back of cling stamps to stamp with coloured ink first and then the right side with black ink…..now the thing we have to be really careful about is the fact that the stamp has to be a symmetrical one or else it won’t work…
I got such good results from this technique that I went ahead and made two cards….The first one is a Hello card in which I have used my marigold stamp and in the second card I have used balloon stamps to make a Birthday card….
It’s a great technique to teach kids as well….
Hope you liked my cards….

Post#172 – Love You Bunches Valentine’s Card

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone….Hope someone you love makes your day a special one….I’m sure all the card makers and crafters already have a few goodies ready for their loved ones…!!
I’m sharing my favourite card today….if you’ve been following my blog then you already know how I lack in confidence when it comes to colouring in stamped images….and with this one I was colouring in straight onto the top layer of the card…
The card base and top layer is plain white with all four corners rounded with a punch…..I then started preparing the top layer…First I stamped and coloured in the image and then masked it off…Then got out my distress inks and blended a few colours to make it look like ground….then I cut a scrap piece of paper and shaped it like a cloud and used blue distress ink to sponge it lightly at the edges to create the clouds….
I finally stamped the sentiment stamp in the middle of the card using red dye ink….to decorate the card I have used very tiny red hearts punched from glitter cardstock…
Hope you liked this card….

Post#169 – You+Me Card

I had a lot of fun planning and making this card….while I was looking through my stamps for something for Valentines Day,I came across these stamps with symbols of + and = and this became the main focus of my card….
It’s a 5″ square white card base with a plain bright red mat….the top layer is white and I have used a hearts mask and light pink ink to create a background….I then stamped the words ‘you’ and ‘me’ with red dye ink…..and I have gold heat embossed for the + = and ‘forever’ word stamps…
At the base of the top layer,I have added a strip each of gold glitter cardstock and pink glitter cardstock…at the top i have only used a gold glitter strip…I also punched a red heart  and placed it above the word ‘forever’…..
Hope you liked this card…

Post#165 – Hello Card

I have this printed paper with hearts and ‘hello’ printed in various languages and I was going to use it as the top layer for this card….it would’ve looked good but I changed my mind and decided to cut out all the words and place them individually on the top layer of the card…
I started with a pale pink card base and a white top layer….After stamping the typewriter at the base of the top layer,I randomly stamped hearts with light pink ink….I also coloured in the typewriter and stamped a heart and the word ‘Hey’ on it…
I rounded only two corners of each of the cut outs and sponged them with tattered rose distress ink before placing them on the card…I used the same distress ink to sponge the top layer and the card base…
White adhesive pearls have been used as the only embellishments on this card…
Hope you liked it…
 

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#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…
