Christmas Card and Handmade Poinsettia Paper Flower Tutorial


handmade christmas card

Hi All! Here is a Christmas card I created some days back. I started out with a white card base and layered it with red cardstock. Next, I partially embossed the white cardstock  using Swiss dot embossing folder and adhered the ribbon around the panel and layered on to the red cardstock.

I topped it with handmade poinsettia flowers and leaves. Leaves were punched out using Punch-Bunch punch. Then I stamped the sentiment using StudioG Stamps and finally added the rhinestones to embellish the card.

Holiday Card using Distress Ink


cardmaking ideas
Hello Friends!! Wishing you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year.

I have a Holiday Card to share with you all today. First, I created the background with Broken China and Black Soot distress inks. I masked the center portion and stamped the snowflake.  I then removed the masking tape and stamped the sentiment.

The Snowflake image is from Unity Stamp and the sentiment is from Studio G stamps. Finally added the dots using liquid Pearls and mounted it on a black cardstock. I hope you like my card today.

Distress Ink Background using Masking and Sponging technique


create a background using distress ink

Hi all! I have used masking and sponging technique to create this card. First, I created a mask for the top and bottom using Washi tape and sponged the rest using Peacock feathers and Peeled paint distress inks. I then stamped the butterfly image and sentiment on the colored panel. Both the butterflies and sentiment are "Direction of  Happy" stamp set from Unity Stamps.

I then removed the masks and scored three lines above and below the sponged area and mounted it on a black card stock. Finally, I added some liquid pearls and rhinestones. Hope you like it.

My special thanks to Berina for the wonderful Stamp Set.
