Birthday cards!!

Hello friends...hope you had a great weekend. Today I am quickly sharing 2 cards which I made few days back.

For first card created a wreath of flowers with masking, colored then using distress ink. Then to add some dimension I trimmed the panel on two sides and fussy cut the flower edges. Next layer of card is created with sponging through stencil. Finally mounted this on colored card stock.

Post is not over yet ! Here is the second card. This one is a no fuss card. I stamped the image, then masked it and sponged the distress ink on the border. Then sprinkled some water so that it gives a beautiful background after reacting with water. Finishes off with embossed sentiment on black paper.

The card was done quick but I had to struggle a lot to get the exact color on the picture. This is peacock feather color but somehow it looks more blue in photo than in real :(

 Tried taking photo with different intensity of light but still was not successful.

For my friend !!

Hey friends....hope you are enjoying your weekend!! I sneaked in some time today to create a CAS card today. I was able to put this together very quickly.

I am still in the "re-purposing the stamps" mode. So I used a tiny little heart stamp from Simon Says Stamp to create flowers in different colors. Then using black glitter pen added some finishing touches to it, also added black rhinestones to it. Then distressed the edges and finished it off with the sentiment from Inspired by Stamping.

"CASE"ing Therese Calvird

I was determined to CASE Therese's card on the TIME OUT challenges-Challenge#60. I am making a last minute entry into it.

This is her card, isn't it beautiful.

I was inspired by the stripped background, flowers and effective use of colors. Here is my version.....


I created the stripped background using border stamp with versamark ink and then used distress ink for the background. Stamped the flowers, used water color to add some color and fuzzy cut it. On the panel added the flowers, stamped the sentiment and few rhinestones. Finally adhered the panel on the colored cardstock.

Hopefully I did justice in CASE-ing Therese's card.

On another note, we went for lunch and there was this beautiful flower on the table, could not resist to take a picture of it. Signing off with this beautiful picture. Have a great day!!!

Colourful background card

Hello...welcome back to my blog. Today I am posting on a weekday, little unusual for me :)

I wanted to make use of stamps which I don't get to use much. There are quite a few which I have but not have used even once! So today's plan was use the unused.

I used a frame stamp to create the background using all the colors I possibly could use. Finished off with a simple sentiment.

Supplies used:
SSS "You can do anything" stamp set for the background
SSS "Big Birthday Wishes" for the sentiment
Ranger white embossing folder

CAS Birthday Card

Hi there....hope you are having a great weekend. I wanted to play along few of the challenges and made this card.

It's very simple one. I have used different distress colors to create the background using stamp. Then added a candle over it and put the sentiment. This was done very quick. I was very tempted to mount this on a embossed or a colored cardstock but wanted to keep all white and keeping focus on the design.

Supplies used:
Inspired by Stamping "Friends Forever" for background
Simon Says Stamp for candle and sentiment
Tim Holtz distress inks
Memento tuxedo black ink
