Yay

Good morning how’s your Saturday going? I am on the papermilldirect blog today with this tutorial:

I have made this cute card with some gorgeous pink glitter card. 

To make the card you will need:

You will also need:

  • Cat stamps (My Favorite Things)
  • Zig waterbrush markers
  • Black Ink (My Favorite Things)
  • Alphabet Die
  • White embossing powder
  • Heat Gun
  • Versafine ink
  • Heart dies (Paper Smooches)
  • White Nuvo Drops

Yay

To make the card base I trimmed a piece of Perla Sirio Colour Card 290gsm to 4 1/8 and scored in half at 5 7/8 inches. I then trimmed down a smaller panel of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and die cut the words Yay. I then added a small piece of Persian Pink Pearlised Card 300gsm to the back of the card and adhered to my card base with some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

Using some more White Card Super Smooth 250gsm I stamped my cat images and water coloured them in gently with a small bit of water. Once they were dry I cut them out and adhered them onto the card with some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then heat embossed the sentiment onto a piece of Raspberry Pink Plain Card 240gsm which I trimmed down and adhered onto the card with Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then die cut some tiny hearts using a piece of Powder Pink Pearlised Card 300gsm and adhered down with some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

To finish the card off I added a few drops of white Nuvo drops.

I really love how sparkly the Persian Pink Pearlised Card 300gsm is and it doesn’t shed any glitter. I will definitely be using more of this pretty card again. I hope you have fun creating this project.

Hello!

Good Morning.

I love using animals and critters on my cards so this sweet hello card is great for cheering somebody up.

  • Cat stamp (My Favorite Things)

  • Nuvo Drops

Hello

To make the card base I trimmed down a piece of Perla Sirio Colour Card 290gsm to 4 1/8 inches and I scored this at 5 7/8 inches. I then trimmed down a panel a bit smaller than the card base using some Nude Sirio Colour Card 290gsm and adhered this to my card base with some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then used a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and die cut hello using my silhouette machine. Feel free to used alphabet dies is you don’t have an electronic cutting machine. I then stamped my images onto some more White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and very gently coloured the images in. Once they were dry I adhered them onto the card using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then adhered the hello die cut using some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

Project life

Okay I’m well over a year behind my project life…..

But I’m documenting everything I just need to put it together 😬

So I’ve made a start on this year but gosh I completely forgot how much time it all takes so I’m hoping to get my albums done a bit each week…..

Anyway here’s a couple of my pages. I use a 9×12 album for documenting everything.

It’s a start but I’m hoping to get more pages done over the next couple of weeks.

Have a great weekend I’ve got a busy one but I will be back soon.

Sweet bear birthday card

Good morning!

I have this sweet bear card up on the papermilldirect blog today.

I absolutely love ink blending onto my cards and Papermilldirect’s White Card Super Smooth 250gsm is just perfect for this.

The products I used are:

You will also need:

  • Birthday bear (My Favorite Things)
  • Happy stamp (Neat and Tangled)
  • Birthday Die (Uniquely creative )
  • Gold embossing powder (WOW)
  • Copic Markers
  • Hear die (Paper Smooches)
  • Heat Gun
  • Distress Ink: Tumbled glass, Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers
  • Sponge

Bear Birthday

To make my card base I trimmed down a piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm. I trimmed this at 4 1\8 and scored at 5 7\8. I then cut down another piece for my card front. This piece we will be ink blending on.

To start the ink blending I started with some Tumbled Glass and gently applied this to the card. I then bought in some Faded Jeans and ink blended this at the top of the card. For the bottom part I used Peacock Feathers and gently applied the ink along the bottom. When you first start ink blending it will look terrible to start with but just keep going for a few minutes and it will start to blend together.

I then adhered this onto my card front using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm. I then stamped and coloured the images onto some White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and adhered them onto my card.

I then die cut the word birthday using some White Card Super Smooth 250gsm. I die cut this twice and used some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml and adhered this onto my card. I added a die heart using some Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm.

I then embossed the greeting on a piece of Black Plain Card 250gsm and adhered this onto the card.

Your Bear Birthday card is now complete.

Thanks for stopping by have a great day!

I ink blended the background and stencilled over the top to look like wallpaper.

The February stamp and colour kit also has lots of fun add on stamps too and there’s even more dinosaurs too!

It’s nice to know that spring will be here soon so I made a card with some lovely flowers on.

Thanksflower

To start with I made my card base using a piece of Pale Turquoise Plain Card 240gsm which I trimmed at 4 1\8 and scored at 5 7\8 inches for the fold. I then placed the card front in my die cutting machine making sure it was just the front of the card and not the back and I die cut the scalloped circle. I then adhered a piece of White Card Hemp 255gsm to the back of my card front.

I then die cut the words thanks using Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm and White Card Super Smooth 250gsm. Place this aside for a moment.

For the flowers I stamped the images with Versafine ink onto White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and sprinkled clear embossing powder over the top. Heat set this with a heat gun. Colour your images in with watercolour paints or pens. Trim the images out and place onto the card front using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm. Place the die onto the card with some more Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

To finish the card off I added some clear drops and adhered these onto the card with Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

Your card is now complete.

I hope you have a great day!
