#725 – Dichrome Card

Hello! I’ve done a few monochromatic cards before, but not so many with just two colors. You know how it is with some colors – you think they won’t gel well together until you see proof that they do! Its the same with this particular combination of light pink and teal. Its just beautiful!

Birthday Wishes

I am actually CASEing this beautiful card from Heather Hoffman. Look at that pretty pattern paper on the balloon – love it!

I used stamps from 4 stamp sets from Winnie & Walter on this card – In Bloom: Carolina’s Flowers, In Bloom: Lola’s Bouquet, In Bloom: Victoria’s Very Merry Flowers and Sketchy Thoughts and 2 die sets – Big Balloon Cutaways and Sketchy Thoughts (not counting the co ordinating die cut for the ‘Happy’). And of course, just two colors for stamping! 🙂

#724 – You Are My Precious

Hello! So, I finally got time to spend to make some cards(?) for the superb Winnie & Walter 4th Birthday Bash challenges! Of course, I did couple it with a couple of other challenges.

You Are My Precious

Those little heart gems are from Winnie & Walter My Precious stamp set. While I could use one stamp as is, I had to modify the other a little bit. I heat embossed them in silver and used perfect pearls colors in red and pink to watercolor them, then fussy cut them.

You Are My Precious

I then used the one of the stencils from Kaiserkraft Love Quaters to blend Pumice Stone distress ink on a grey card panel, which I then die cut using Winnie & Walter Essentials: Lana’s Cutaways.

#723 – Guest Designing at WCMC9

Hello! I am beyond excited and so very elated to be guest designing at Where Creativity Meets C9!! What’s more, the theme this time is one of my favorites – if I wasn’t the GD, I would definitely have played multiple times!! The theme is ‘Watercoloring’

ChallengeBadge

And here’s what I created –

Just a Little Note

Its a quick card to make. I stamped the flower cluster image from Hello Lovely in MFT Hybrid ink, then proceeded with messy watercoloring using distress inks. I chose a pink-green-gray combo. Once it dried, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set. Makes this a clean one layer card!

#722 – Ewe Have My Heart

Hello! For it is the season of love, I have the perfect stamp to create a card –

Ewe Have My Heart

Trying to continue my efforts to make cards using critters, I though this would be the easiest and best choice – My Favorite Things Ewe Are th Best stamp. The sheep here are just too cute, and there are also some extra stamps to create scenes easily – one of the reasons I bought the stamp set!

Ewe Have My Heart

Anyway, I first stamped the Etched Tribal stamp on my kraft card base. I die cut a piece of white cardstock using the Pinking Edge Square die cut, stamped the scene and watercolored it using distress inks. The same for the small flowers and the cute little sheep. After fussy cutting the sheep and flowers, I assembled the card by foam mounting the scene, sentiment an sheep, mounting the whole thing on a white card base.

#720 – Guest Designing at Tic Tac Toe challenge

Hello! Today I have the pleasure of Guest Designing at the Tic Tac Toe challenge! I am so happy and so excited!!

Here’s the tic tac toe board for the challenge #33

Challenge Board

Though not in a single line, I wanted to include a kraft card base and use red in my card. The only solution? Use two lines! So, I’ve used both Sentiment-Die cut- Kraft and Red-Die cut-Vellum in my card. And here it is –

Celebrate - Its Your Day

I used My Favorite Things Flashy Florals and Distress Oxide Inks to stamp the images on a Kraft card panel. I die cut the panel using a die from My Favorite Things Blueprints 27 and foam mounted it on a black card base.

Celebrate - Its Your Day

The die cut sentiment is from Neat and Tangled, called Celebrate, and the stamped portion comes from Waffle Flower Congrats stamp set. I heat embossed the die cut sentiment in gold some 2-3 times, to get a bit of dimension before adhering it to its vellum counterpart.

I am also joining these challenges with my card –

#719 – Glitter Sparkle Love

PE: Winner at Tic Tac Toe challenge! Can’t believe it!! 😀

Tic Tac Toe - Winner

Hello! Its been quite some time since I used glitter in my card making. I tried to combine a stencil, which I have totally not used until now, with clear glitter in this card.

Love You Always

I recently saw a few cards from Yana Smakula, where she had used a stencil in different ways. One of the ways used masking and using the stencil on different areas of the card. This is the inspiration for my card. I used the Penny Black Luster stencil with Black Soot and a combination of Antique Linen and Pumice Stone, partially coloring through the stencil around the card panel. Once done, I covered the panel with double sided tape , sprinkled a bit of black glitter over it and then poured clear glitter all over it. I then die cut the panel with a die from MFT Bluprints 27 and foam mounted it on a white card base.

Love You Always

For the sentiment, I first applied Art Alchemy Wax Brushed Iron and Lucky Emerald on a scrap piece of cardstock. I then heat embossed the sentiment, from Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint stamp set, in silver. I then fussy cut the panel and foam mounted it on the card.
