#815 – Welcome Baby!

Hello! I had made this baby card for one of my friends, quite some time ago, when she had her first child…so precious! πŸ™‚

Welcome Little One

A simple, one layered card, using stamping and coloring.. and of course, just a touch of glitter! πŸ˜‰

I used Paper Trey Ink Rustic White for the card base. The sun and the cute elephant are from Happy Little Stampers Whimsical Friends, and the balloon from Simon Says Stamp Birthday Bits, which I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Fanciful Swirl, which is an alphabet stamp set.

Welcome Little One

I colored the images using Faber Castell oil pastels and baby oil. I drew the balloon’s string and the clouds using a black penΒ  and colored them too. Once considerably dry, I added some light glitter using Wink of Stella clear brush pen.

Welcome Little One

For the envelope, I used purple color paper (I would have preferred blue, but I didn’t have the right color) and stamped the same elephant and balloon using Memento Tuxedo Black, along with the sentiment.

#783 – In focus!

PE: CAS On Friday Favorite!!

CAS on Sunday - Honorable Mention

Hello! Since I watercolored quite a few cards these past few days (well, some are yet to be published here…) I thought of switching gears a bit. So after going through some challenges that I thought of joining, I made a CAS card –

I Miss Your Face

To make this card, I first cut an oval shape out of some scrap paper, to use it as a mask. I used this on a white card base to apply Fozzilised Amber distress oxide ink. On another piece of scrap white cardstock, I stamped the butterflies using MFT Hybrid Black ink. After fussy cutting these, I foam mounted them on the card base

I then colored another piece with Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple distress oxide inks and die cut the letters ‘hi’ using Lawn Fawn Quinn’s ABCs dies. However, when I places it on the yellow backdrop, it wasn’t looking that good, so I added a little Wild Honey on the top. I then stacked this die with a few more pieces and adhered it to the card. I then stamped the rest of the sentiment, from Ellen Hutson Totally Random Sayings Vol 1, using MFT Hybrid Black ink. Finally added a few dots around the butterflies using a black pen.

I totally loved how that yellow ink forms a real quick and easy backdrop, but brings everything into focus so easily! And that bright yellow – totally love that! πŸ™‚

#755 – Going CAS

PE: Honorable Mention at The Card Concept!!

The Card Concept - Honorable Mention

Winner at Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge!!

Hello! I tried making something other than a DT card or a card for the family or to send to someone after a long time.. And somehow, I ended up making CAS cards – these are difficult for me to make, but, I ended up pretty refreshed! πŸ™‚

The first is a floral card –

Thinking of You

I made this card by heat embossing the flower cluster from Concord & 9th Hello Lovely stamp in white. In fact, I stamped the image twice, but misaligned a bit the second time, which is making the lines appear so thick. Anyway, I colored them using Zig brush pens, then fussy cut them. The sentiment comes from WPlus9 Fresh Cut Flowers. I have adhered both the florals and the sentiment using foam tape for some dimension.

With this card, I am joining the following challenges –

Global Design Project challenge #139: Just a Note

The Card Concept challenge #93: Floral Centerpiece

Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge 21: Floral

The second card carries some cute lions –

Happy Birthday

Those cute lions are from Reverse Confetti Leapin Lions stamp. I stamped them using Versafine black ink and colored them using Zig brush pens. I also die cut the grass using MFT Fresh Cut Grass die, 3 pieces, for varying shades of green. The foremost layer contains the sentiment, a combination of sentiments from Reverse Confetti stamp sets – A Whole Lotta Happy and Love & Ice Cream. I then mounted all the pieces using foam tape.

Sovushka Slavia - Challenge Winner

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!

#704 – Merry Christmas (1)

Hello! I had this stamp that I especially bought for the Christmas season – Christmas Flower from Stamplorations. Need I say more? This large poinsettia is just perfect for quite a few techniques. I made a couple of cards using this pretty stamp (showing another one tomorrow).

For my first card, I chose embossing with watercoloring. And since I hadn’t used my Zig brush pens for quite some time now, I thought this was a very good reason to do so! πŸ™‚

Merry Christmas

I used a watercolor panel and heat embossed the poinsettia in gold. I then did some quick watercoloring using my Zig brush pens. I love them for the depth and the richness of the colors they provide. Of course, I did use another brush and plain water for spreading the color, I did want some lighter shades in the image too!

Merry Christmas

Anyway, once done, I trimmed the panel to size, and also fussy cut out one side of the poinsettia. I then added the sentiment from Paper Trey Ink ‘Tis the Season stamp set, and foam mounted the panel on a brown card base.

I’m also joining the following challenges with my card –
