Gold Embossed Congratulations Card

Image
One of my crafty resolutions for this year is to practice and get better at heat embossing...so every now and then I keep reminding myself about it...and today I patiently sat down to create this card which not only has heat embossing but also a lot of masking as you can see that quite a few of the images are overlapped...

Cute Panda Cards

I rarely buy coordinating dies for my stamps,but this stamp set came with the dies so these cards were pretty quick to make..I love these panda images...especially coz they don't even need to be coloured in.. :)

The card I'm sharing today is my entry for the Scrapbook Boutique June challenge...and the theme of this month's moodboard is 'Gold Is The New Black'...and as you can see my card is just gold and black....I think I spent more time trying to click a good enough picture of this card rather than creating it..!! :)

Hello Cards

Image
I have to keep reminding myself that not everyone likes 'bright and colourful'...so when I made a colourful hello card,I decided to make another one with not so bright colours in it...

My first card has a textured lilac coloured card base and a die cut white top layer...on this top layer is used the base stamps from a layering stamp set and various bright dye inks to stamp a section of the top layer...
On a separate piece of cardstock,I used various shades of Peerless watercolours to randomly paint on it and once dry,I die cut the word 'hello'from it ans well as from purple coloured craft foam and adhered it to the card front..
I simply added some Nuvo jewel drops to embellish this card...

My second card has a kraft cardstock card base and a black top layer...then on a smaller white panel,I stamped the various succulent and planter images and coloured them in using watercolours...
I die cut a wonky stitched frame for this panel from white cardstock as well as a small …

Watercolour Background Quick Cards

Image
Today I'm sharing two cards that were pretty quick to make...I loved making a watercoloured background for one of my cards earlier and wanted to make some more...

For all the fairy stamps I have and love(and keep buying..lol),I didn't have many mushroom stamps to build a scene with so I got this one from Hero Arts called You're A Fungi...I like all the different images on it as well as the pun-ny sentiments in the set...
I started with a watercolour cardstock top layer and painted a random 'pattern' using Kurutake Gansai Tambi watercolours,making sure to leave a bit of white area around the edges...once the paint was dry,I used nesting hearts dies to emboss this top layer....I stamped the sentiment and a snail using brown dye ink and adhered this top layer to a Kraft cardtstock card base...

I stamped,coloured in and cut out all the mushroom images and placed them on the card...I have used craft foam under a few of the mushrooms add a bit of dimension to the scene.…

Easy Stamp Painting - Two Cards,Two Techniques

Image
I have tried the 'no line watercolouring' technique so many times and have failed miserably to get the right result...I probably need lots of practice but for now I have found an easy way out which gets me the look of hand-painted flowers so easily...maybe this has been tried and shared by others before but I haven't seen any tutorials/videos yet...

For my first card I chose a lime green card base and die cut the top layer from watercolour cardstock....now for the fun part....I used the detail stamps from a rose layering stamp and and various Distress inks to stamp directly on the top layer....I used one colour at a time and with a water brush I quickly painted on the stamped area,spreading the ink out and painting a flower shape...I used my heat gun to dry the images and repeated the stamping and painting with other colours...I have used picked raspberry,spiced marmalade,candied apple,mustard seed and mowed lawn shades of Distress inks...

To add the gold splatter I had t…
