#749 – Enjoy Your Day

Hello! I am so very pleased and honored to be joining the Sovushka Slavia Sketch Challenge as a Guest Designer yet again. This is one of my favorite challenges, which requires CAS cards and the sketches are beautiful. Here’s the sketch for the latest challenge –

And here’s what I made –

Enjoy Your Day

I used the Paper Trey Ink Mighty Bloom die cut twice, on Yellow and white card stock, and adhered these on some newsprint. Laying this at an angle, I foam mounted it on a white card base and trimmed off the excess. The sentiment is die cut from Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint die, stacked and adhered on the die cut. The stamped part of the sentiment is from the co-ordinating stamp set, Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint, which I have white heat embossed, before adhering it to the card.

Check out the wonderful creations from the DT of Sovushka Slavia for more inspiration!

Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes

And here’s the card I made –

Birthdays are a Hoot

I used the cute little owls from Lil Inker Designs Hootie Patootie stamp set. They are just so adorable!!! I colored them using Faber Castell oil pastels, fuzzy cut them. I cut out a panel of olive green card stock using Neat & Tangled Scalloped die, which I then embossed using Spellbinders Flora embossing folder. I then foam mounted the panel over a white card base, then foam mounted the critters, clouds, balloons, and sentiment on top.

I hope you enjoyed my card. And I hope you find time to join both the challenges – they are totally fun. You can find more inspiration at the CAS(E) This Sketch blog and the Seize the Birthday blog, where we are joined by our Surprise Party Guest, Kimberly Lackenbach!

Here’s the Tic Tac Toe board for the challenge #38

TTTC038

I chose to use Polka Dots — Die Cuts — Happy combination. Here’s what I made –

You Make My Heart Happy

I used Technique Tuesday Lots of Dots to make the polka dotted background, and We R Memory Keepers Weave embossing folder over the teal cardstock to get some texture. The flowers are from WPlus9 Watercolored Anemones, which I stamped using distress inks, misted with water. The die cut sentiment is from Winnie & Walter In a Word: Happy, and the stamped portion is from Honey Bee Stamps Sentiment Builder. After assembling the card, I added some clear white gems to embellish the card.

#733 – Timeout Reminder

Hello! Its time for a reminder post for the Timeout challenge, where I am guest designing. The current challenge is a Theme Challenge, with the theme being “Hobbies” and the sponsors are CAS-ual Friday stamps.

hobbies

Did you notice that there is an “Optional Twist”? Although I had seen that last time, I was too hyped while making my card and completely forgot about it then! So, I thought of trying to make a one layered card this time.

And what hobby? Card making, of course!! The whole reason for my blog!! 😀

You've Got Happy Mail

I made a card with a lot of critters exchanging cards between them. For what reason? I don’t know! Isn’t it enough that cards are getting exchanged??

Anyway, the critters are all from WPlus9 Happy Mail stamp set, and so is the sentiment. The flowers in the background are from Purple Onion Designs, named Blooms. I used a kraft card base and colored these critters using my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.

Hope you liked my card. Do checkout the Timeout challenge blog, where you’ll find even better inspiration from the DT! And don’t forget to play along!

#727 – Guest Designing for Timeout Challenge

Hello! So very excited to be Guest Designing at Timeout challenge! It feels wonderful to join the amazing ladies in this team!!

The challenge this time is a Theme Challenge, with the theme being “Hobbies” and the sponsors are CAS-ual Friday stamps.

hobbies

Now, I do have quite a few hobbies, but how do I represent them in a card?!?? Somehow I ended up picking up an easy one. Reading.

Enjoy the Little Things

I used to be quite an avid reader, but somehow that’s decreased to more than I like in the last few years. I am going to make a real effort to rising my “reading time” again this year, so wish me luck! 🙂

Coming back to the card – I used images from Waffle Flower Bird and Bear along with a stack of books that I drew by hand, colored them using distress ink and fussy cut them. For the background, I used double die cut – Lil Inker Designs Diamond Lace die along with Spellbinders Labels 24 die. The sentiment comes from Honey Bee Stamps Sentiment Builder stamp. The card base is Fabriano Elle Erre paper.

Do take a time out and join the challenge – and do checkout the Timeout Challenge blog, the spectacular DT has some fabulous inspiration in store for you! 🙂

#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!

#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 –
