HELLO CARD | SIZZIX LIFESTYLE


Hello everyone! How are you doing? I hope you guys are doing fine! :) I'm here with a Clean and Simple Hello Card made for Sizzix Lifestyle and also this card was made for a couple of challenges which I love the most! I used the gorgeous Paint Splats and Sentiments dies from Sizzix Lifestyle. Look at that sentiment! Oh! I'm so in love with it! :)


I started by watercoloring the card stock with grey and black water colors and let the panel dry for sometime! 


Then I ran all the dies through the Big Shot Plus Machine and adhered it over the main card base. Oh! How I love that glittery 'hello' :D


Finally I embellished the card with a few clear sequins from Mudra. I would like to enter this card for the following challenges CASology Week 283: GLIMMER and Simon Says: Add A Sentiment.


I hope you like the card, thanks for visiting! :)

SIMPLE FANCY FOLD CARD | SIZZIX LIFESTYLE | VIDEO


Hello my dear lovely friends! I wish you all a very Happy New Year! :) This is the first card for this year and I wanted to make it simple and fancy!

CARD MAKING DETAILS



I cut the card stocks to the desired size, I usually don't take measurements so no measurements for you today! :) Also I ran the thinlit and framelit dies through the Big Shot Plus Machine. 


I placed the Natural Floral die-cut over the white card base. I purposely cut the card base slightly smaller than the die-cut so that I can fold the edges and glue them. 


Once I glued the die-cut, I had a pocket kind of thing to insert my tab through. I stamped the sentiment from CP Designs - You Did It stamp set in Midnight Ink. 


Next I folded the circular glitter die-cut, adhered as shown above! Then punched a hole through it and threaded the twine and completed with a simple bow!


I then rounded the corners of the tab with my scissors for some nice finished look. 


I have made another card similar to the previous one but with different color scheme! If you are interested in learning the process of this card, kindly check the video below! I made it 'for you'! I hope you enjoyed that card and video. Thank you so much for visiting! See you later! :)

COFFEE STAINED CARD | SIZZIX LIFESTYLE | VIDEO


Recently I've learned how to stain papers. I'm loving that old and vintagy look lately. So I went into my kitchen, brew some Coffee Decoction and stored into a plastic cup. It's easy to apply the decoction to your projects with a paint brush or sponge brush.


Products from Sizzix.co.uk

I applied decoction to the projects and sped up the drying process with a heat it tool. I applied second coat to the songbird die-cut for some rustic look. I actually feel that it looks like wood veneer, right?


Next I adhered the papers with Tacky Glue and popped up the die-cut with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment from Mudra in Versafine Sepia Ink and finished the card with a few golden sequins from Mudra.


And that is the card for today and I hope you like it. I have also made a video for you, Enjoy! :)

LOVE ALWAYS CARD | CATHERINE POOLER DESIGNS


The stamping technique I used on this card was a old one but a fun one too. You can CHECK THIS VIDEO to learn this stamping technique. All the products I used to make this card are from Catherine Pooler Designs.

(I am a part of their affiliate program. This means that I receive a small commission when products are purchased through links I share here (at no additional cost to you). Kindly support me by clicking through these links when you shop. Thanks so much)


I reversed the stamp and stamped onto the paper with It's a Girl, Tiara and Sweet Sixteen, Mint to be and Melon Ice Inks. Later I stamped the outline portion of the same stamp in Midnight Ink. I fussy cut it and kept it aside. And the pretty flowers are from Beautiful You stamp set.


Onto the main card base I stamped one of the borders from Yay Stripes at the very bottom of the card with Midnight Ink.


Next I took another panel smaller than the main card base and adhered the flowers and leaves as shown above. Finally I finished the card by stamping the sentiment from Beautiful You Stamp Set in Midnight Ink


And that's all for today. Thanks so much for visiting. Take care and I will see you next time! :)
