A simple birthday card

Namaste everyone.. Welcome to my blog. Today is a new challenge at Addicted to stamps and more and challenge is Birthday. Foe more details on the challenge and more inspiration click HERE

I made a simple red and golf birthday card using SSS screen elements die. This die is in my collection from so many years and I never used it. So thought why not challenge self and make a card.

I die cut the heart shape from white card front and mirror card stack. Glued both a little off set so that gold peeks out. Then foam mounted the panel on a red card base. I ran the card front through die cut machine using Little inker designs die. Which adds a little iinterest to the back ground.

Sentiment is from SSS and i gold heat embossed it and added glod mirror cs as mat.

Thank you for visiting and hope to see you participate in the challenge..

Night sky background – Two cards

Here i am with two cards made in time of one , I used distress inks to make the background.
Then cut it into two panels.
 I stamped and fussy cut a branch and bird, then die cut a circle from one panel, sponged white pigment ink around the negative circle die cut to add halo around it. Then adhered the branch and bird on it. Heat embossed sentiment in black.
Mounted this panel on white card base with foam tape.
Here is the card

Second card is too simple. I just heat embossed sentiment and few stars in white. And then mounted the panel on white card base with foam tape (I had plan of adhering this flat but forgot, I should stop using foam tape for every card) .
Here is the card

One layer card – Mamaelephant

Here I am with another one layer card. Its really difficult to make one layer card (at least for me), still gave it a try. Its a 5×7″ top folding card.
I used a white card base, mama elephant stamps for this card. Stamped ice bergs distress inks n then blended colour with little water. Stamped penguin and umbrella in its hand, coloured umbrella. Used few warm colours to make sky and sun. Die cut a circle applied distress inks and popped it with foam tape. Stamped sentiment partially.
To finish off I applied glossy accent over sun and umbrella.

This is my way to depict the global warming. Every animal on earth is facing side effects of global warming and trying to fight against it.

I was inspired by Sandie’s card, so used the overall image as inspiration.

Masked night sky



I made this simple card by masking. I just die cut an oval from a thin copy paper. Then i placed it on a white card stock n used distress inks to make the sky. Then splattered few drops of plain water n pearlised water to make it look like galaxy.
Then i white heat embossed a small star. Then white heat embossed sentiment on vellum strip n pasted it half way across the masked night sky.
