Guest Designer - CAS Stencil challenge - gentle reminder

Image
Hello again, I am delighted to present another card (previous card), as a guest at the  CAS StencilChallenge, as a gentle reminder for you all, to join all of us with your CAS beauties using stencil!We are playing with the ghosting technique and I made a floral card today with this technique.

I used a rose stencil by an Indian brand called Craftyscrappers (alas! this stencil is discontinued) for my ghosting. I blended three shades of Distress oxides, Abandoned Coral, Worn lipstick and spun sugar in gradation and then placed my stencil and spritzed some water. Two diecut leaves from Altenew and the sentiment by Uniko Ltd and tadaa.. here's my card.

In my previous post (here) I shared the tips for this technique, incase you are new to it, you can go through 'my lessons learnt'.
I must take this opportunity to thank Julia, Loll and all the lovely artists who took out time to leave me love on my previous post as GD at CAS Stencil. I was overwhelmed with joy and was counting m…

CIC - 466 Cinderella card

Hello friends,
This week at Cupcake Inspiration challenge, we are hosting a color challenge. We are using the colors,lilac, white, and sky bluein your cards, and we are eager to see how you use these beautiful colors in your projects!

This biweekly challenge is sponsored by Bugaboo StampsThey are generously providing a $12 gift certificate to our randomly chosen winner.


I used Frame it - Cinderella digital stamp generously provided by our sponsors for this card. I used Copics and Polychromos to color and I must admit I am in love with this color combination.


Isn't that sentiment, lovely? I used a plaid patterned paper from Pretty Plaid paper pack by Craftangles and the stitched square scallop frame die-namics to frame the card.

The sweeties have adorable projects with this color cobination (here), hope you'll join us with your take on or color challenge.

Hello friends,
A new challenge is up at AAA Cards and this time the game is One Image with Optional Twist Spring. Also, it's a moment of pride as an Indian company Craftyscrappers are our kind sponsors and are giving away $20 GC to be spent from their shop.

I have used our sponsor's stampset called Peek-a-boo for this card. I coloured this cute elephant with Copic markers and added some grass to ground it. 

I hope I have inspired you to join us at the challenge. Aleksa is our Guest Designer for this challenge and get ready to get bowled over by her take on this challenge. Visit us at the challenge (here) to get inspired by our lovely guest and the talented design team and join us with your CAS cards.

Cancerian Birthday wishes

Hello again,
So a star gazer and a Linda Goodman fan couldn't stop at one. This cute Crab is from Itsy Bitsy and the background is with Spellbinders embossing folder - Splish splash. I tried a technique I have seen Loll Thompson do many times, but hadn't tried it myself and I loved the result.

I die cut the arch die and placed it in the EF. But before I placed it in the EF I applied some Salty Ocean and Peacock feather Distress Oxides on the flatter side and spritzed it with water, then ran through the Die cutting machine. I colored my cute crab with Copics, stamped my sentiment and arranged the whole card on foam tape.

I hope you like this clean and simple card. I actually like it a lot and may make a Piscean cards too, with the same design, what do you think?

Aries constellation

Hello everyone,
I have been planning to play at the LIM - horoscopes, am such a Linda Goodman fan, I had to play! I  did a CAS version of my Quilling work (here) for my constellation (I am an Arian) and I have many Arian friends I can send this to.


I made a violet-blue- black watercolour background, splashed some acrylic paint, die cut it. Used 2mm paper strips to form the constellation and adhered some pearls for the Constellation stars. Taddaaa.. here is my Arian constellation :)

I hope you like it !
Thank you for stopping by.

Super bear - up up and away

Image
Hello there,
My Kobi the super bear is out again this time to wish a four year old, a very happy Birthday! I used an action wobbler for this card, a super gero in action, ofcourse, yes! 

I used a stencil to create the Rainbow background for the superbear and stamped Kiaan, the boy's name with alpha stampset by Mudra.
My son loved playing with the Kobi and the birthday boy loved it so much, that he made it fly. After 10 mins of wobbling. he thought why not pluck it and.. zoooppp .. make it fly. Poor his momma couldnt even see the card 😄 But to see a kid play .. and enjoy.. was worth it!
Here's my almost 4  year old playing with it.
