Smile Card

So for todays blog post I just wanted to do a simple, fresh card, that makes some one smile.

I die cut all the Thinlits dies out of white smooth card, and the Bigz die out of plain coloured paper. I trimmed about an inch of the right edge. In the inside IU attached a strip of green paper. Then I attach the trim on the right edge.
I then layered the flowers together and add them to the card.
Finally I stamped the message using black ink.

Simple, but hopefully will make some one smile.

Hello Lovely card!

Last month I got one of the hottest products in the craft market, Tim Holtz new Distress Crayons for Ranger. I couldn't wait to get a play, so here you have the results.

Aside from the Distress Crayons, I used my Big Shot machine, Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 2PK - Tribal Borders #660502Craft Asylum Tribal Adventure Clear Stamp Set, Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 3PK - Winter Wishes
#660882, as well as black pigment ink, clear embossing powder and smooth white card.

I started by applying a generous stripe of each of the rainbow colours on to a white smooth card, making sure that the colours overlapped.

Using a broad water brush loaded with plain water, I brushed over the lines to blend them.

Using the straight trim I die cut five strips.

I then glue them to the card.

The intensity of the the colours of the crayons stands out against the white card.

I die cut the sentiment, then pressed the ink pad across and emboss it using clear embossing powder and heat embossed it using a heat gun. I did two layers of embossing powder to create a really glossy three dimensional effect.
Then I stamped the messages from the tribal stamped set and emboss them using clear embossing powder. Then I cut around them and add them to the card using foam pads.

I hope you like it!

Tribal stamped card

I am back with one of my favourite stamping type of cards which is to create a colourful wreath perfect for the spring.

I used only the Craft Asylum Tribal Adventure Clear Stamp Set, an acrylic block, inks and buttons. Very simple but quite full of colour and pretty shapes.

I first draw a 4" circle (you can use a die cut circle, a little plate...) and then I stamped first the larger flower three times, then the second largest flower, and so on until the whole wreath was complete. 

Finally I added the sentiment, the little hearts and glued the buttons.

I hope you like it!

A stamping resist butterfly

Another crayon card!

I used:

Embossing ink pad
Wow Clear embossing powder
Heat gun

Water soluble crayons 
Square card

For this one, I simply stamped the butterfly from the Craft Asylum All the Pretty Things Clear Stamp Set using an embossing ink pad. Then I sprinkled Wow Clear embossing powder over it and melt it using a heat gun. Once it cooled down I just scribbled three different coloured crayons.
Using a generously wet brush and blended the colours together.
Finally, once completely dry, I added the sticker from the Best Friends Embellishment Set.

A messy clean card

Here I am with a messy clean card.

To make it I used a water soluble Fuchsia crayon (there are a lot of different ones out there, any will do as long as they are water soluble). I scribble three circles in the front of the card. then with a wet brush I blended the colour roughly.
Using white card I die cut the flowers from the Bountiful Botany set and attached them to the front of the card. Then I added the Label, buttons and brad from the Best Friends Embellishment Set.

Very quick and fun to make!

Best friends card by Paula Pascual

Happy New Year!
Today I am sharing a simple winter card perfect for January.

I have used Craft Asylum Best Friends Embellishment Set, a white square card and pink glitter.

I attached doubles sided adhesive sheet to the top right corner of the card. Then, following the angle I started adding ribbon (from the embellishment set), leaving small gaps in between. 
Once the whole area was covered, I sprinkled the glitter over it, so it only attached to where the adhesive is exposed.
Finally I added the two tags and button also from the embellishment set.

I love the mix of textures of the ribbon and glitter. The cool colours from this lovely collection makes it perfect for a winter greeting.

I hope you like it too!

Its a simple embroidery hoop with a die cut element in it.

I used 

I simply Iron the Heat n Bond to the back of the red cotton fabric and let it cool down. Then i die cut the stag head and iron it to the whit cotton.
I then placed it on the embroidery hoop and trim any white excess.

It took little time but makes a lovely all year round decoration!
