#763 – Thanks with a Glittery Heart

Hello and welcome to another easy card making session post! This time I am joining Stamplorations in their birthday celebrations, and CASE-ing one of their ultra talented DT – Maria Fisher! Here’s what I made –

Thanks From the Bottom of My Heart

The glittery heart is something I had in my stash – it comes from Winnie & Walter From the Bottom of My Heart stamp set. I used my MISTY to set the stamp, dabbed the inks from a few distress oxide inks using a sponge dauber, then stamped the image. This helped me get a clean, blended image. I then added double sided sticky tape on top, added clear glitter. I used the co-ordinating die cut to cut it out. This gave me glittery thankful heart!! 😉 By the way, the smaller words are not clear in the image, since the glittery sparkle gets in the way, but it is clearly visible in real life.

For the rest of the card – I embossed a white panel using Itsy Bitsy Garden Flowers, trimmed the edges and foam mounted it on the card base. On this, I added two strips, a thinner black one and a striped one, which I got using the MFT Pinstripes stamp. Once I adhered these on, I foam mounted the glittery heart. I then added a few gemstones in rainbow colors.

#759 – Beachy Birthday

Hello and welcome! We have a new challenge on Seize the Birthday blog. The challenge is to make birthday projects, and you also have the option of using a ‘Topping’ that is given in every challenge. And the ‘Topping’ this time is ‘Beachy Birthday’!

Seize The Birthday - The Toppings

Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes

I usually love to make my birthday cards with the optional Topping, and oh, I had lots of trouble with this one. I neither have any stamp sets with a beach theme, not am I adept at creating a beachy scene.. I was totally lost! Thankfully, inspiration struck, and I was able to make this neat, one layered card.

Beachy Birthday

I used stamps from Reverse Confetti ‘Weather it Together’, and drew some squiggly lines for the ocean itself. I colored the scene using Zig Brush pens. The sentiment comes from Bo Bunny ‘Sentiments’ stamp set.

#668 – Sending Hugs

PE: Team Pick at Tic Tac Toe!!

Tic Tac Toe - Honorable Mention

Hello! Somehow I’ve been making CAS cards lately, and been happy with the lot of them, especially since CAS comes hard for me.. I always tend to think that the card ‘needs a little more’ and so, nothing ends up CAS! 🙂 Here’s another one I just made last night –

Sending Hugs

I created the background by first stamping the ‘hugs’ using Honey Bee Stamps Hand Written Alpha, then stamped all the other images, from Honey Bee Stamps Zen Floral. Keeping this case, I heat embossed in black the flower from Ellen Hutson Mondo Peony on watercolor paper and then watercolored it using distress inks, then fussy cut it.

Sending Hugs

Before adhering the flower, I stamped the ‘sending’ part of the sentiment using Honey Bee Stamps Sentiment Builder stamp using Fossilzed Amber distress oxide ink. And that’s my card!

#662 – Hello

This card has long been sent to a blogging friend of mine.. and I am publishing it, I think, months after. But even now, I still love the way it looks (in the photos, of course) as I did the day I created it! Right on top of the list of watercolor pieces I’ve created that have come out good! 😉

Hello

When I made this card, I had just bought the Waffle Flower Enveloper Birthday stamp set, and was so excited to play with it. I wanted some no-line coloring on the card, so I stamped it with a light ink, then colored it using distress inks. The sentiment comes from Ellen Hutson Mondo Magnolia stamp set.

#610 – Addicted to CAS – Guest Designer

Hello! I am really happy to day to be Guest Designing at the Addicted to CAS Challenge blog! Thank you so much for having me over! 🙂

ATCAS - GUEST DESIGNER

The theme this time is “Grunge”.

ATCAS - code word grunge

Now, I am not someone who makes grunge cards, and the theme was pretty difficult for me.. but that’s what challenges are for – guest designing or not!! 😉 After pondering on it for a while, I came up with this card –

Miss You

The stamp set Adore You from Altenew is just perfect for a variety of techniques – starting from just outlining in beautiful colors, or coloring.. so why not make some grunge?…I thought.. So I mixed it with My Favorite Things Abstract Art stamp set to make this card. Of course, I used MISTI for great and perfect stamping, since the flowers are cut outs, foam mounted on the base, mounted to give dimension.

Finally, the sentiment, black base with heat embossed sentiment, came from Mama Elephant In My Heart stamp set.

Miss You
