#789 – A Visual Triangle

Hello and welcome!

One of the tricks for a visually appealing card design is arranging in odd numbers – for card making it is mostly 3, since that would be the ideal, without making things look overcrowded.

I didn’t start my design with this, but with a color palette, but this is the second thing I thought, once I had decided on the colors and supplies I would use.

Happy Wedding Day

The flowers and leaves are from Reverse Confetti Blooms ‘n Buds, the sentiment from Reverse Confetti Whole Lotta Happy, the white panel s die cut using Reverse Confetti Edgar’s Confetti Cuts and the background is Concord & 9th Triangle Turnabout. I fussy cut the images, foam mounting everything before stamping the sentiment.

Once again, I took the help of a color palette –

I should also mention that I have an entire Pinterest board worth of color palettes.. and lately I’ve been depending on them to decide on some good color combinations – yeah, I am bad at choosing something other than the normal combinations.. he he 😀 So, feel free to go choose some colors from there if you like!

#787 – Wedding Wishes

Hello! Another small-stamp-stamped-background today. Well, they aren’t actually small stamps, more like stamps with small images. But, that works too, for me! 😉

Wedding Wishes

I have a few colored cardstocks in my stash now, and I thought of using one here. Its a light yellow or ivory colored cardstock. I first stamped the images from Reverse Confetti Banner in Bloom stamp set across the panel in a dark grey ink. I then cut off a part of one of the stamps, which carried teeny tiny flowers to stamp them in between the spaces left behind. Once everything was to my satisfaction, I used Zig brush pens to color the images. This, I foam mounted on a white card base.

I also stamped the same images a few times on white cardstock, and also used the same colors of Zig brush pens to color them. I then fussy cut them. I die cut a piece of oval using My Favorite Things Zig Zag Stitched Oval. After stamping the sentiment from Reverse Confetti Simply Sentiments, I arranged the flowers on top and adhered foam tape to the back, which I then used to mount on the card. Embellishments are black gemstones and white pearls. I also used black gems on the centers of the three large flowers, but they aren’t exactly visible here.

#758 – A Happy Hello

Hello! After a long time of “lost mojo” mode, I decided to just make something, whether I liked it or not. The card yesterday and today are results of that thought. And, as it turned out, I did like the cards I made.. And hopefully, they’ll help me come out of this slump too.. 🙂

Anyway, here’s the second card I made –

A Happy Hello

To make this card, I first stamped a brown card base with the leafy images from Reverse Confetti Blooms n Buds, followed by a small flower image to cover up the gaps. I also added a few small dots to fill up smaller spaces. I then die cut this piece in the center using Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics 2. I also mounted this on the card base, using foam tape to mount the center. I also added a dotted line on the raised piece

A Happy Hello

I then die cut a circle from white card base, embossed it using a circular die from Winnie & Walter Ring in the Celebration, and stamped the sentiment from Reverse Confetti Whole Lotta Happy. I then used some flowers – that I had stamped and cut god knows when – from Reverse Confetti Garden Bunch and leaves from WPlus9 Fresh Cut Flowers.

After adhering these flowers on the circular sentiment piece using liquid glue, I added foam tape behind the whole piece and mounted it on the card base.

#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! 🙂

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

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.

#505 – Summer Lovin’

PE: Winner at Reverse Confetti!! 😀

Reverse Confetti - Fetti Fan

Hello!

Got these new stamps from Reverse Confetti just a couple of days back, and I just couldn’t wait to try them! 🙂 Now, Reverse Confetti has sketch challenges every month – and for me, it is one of the most difficult ones. Not the sketch – but the fact that I usually want to use pattern papers – which I am bad at, and then I also fail miserably in layering. I tried using the same pattern papers this time too, but changes my tracks in between and tried some thing else instead! 😉

Summer Lovin

For this card, I tried embossing with watercoloring – something I haven’t tried before. I first added embossing paste though Tim Holtz Bubble stencil, let it dry partially, then watercolored it using PTI Tropic Teal ink.

Leaving it to dry, I stamped the beautiful pineapples from Reverse Confetti Pineapples Aplenty using Memento Dandelion, Hero Arts Butter Bar and Hero Arts Neon Sunshine and then Memento Pear Tart and Memento Cottage Ivy inks. I then fussy cut them. I also die cut a strip of kraft card stock using Tim Holtz Decorative Strip – Washer Border, and trimmed a bit further to leave only a part of the die cut.

Summer Lovin

I then trimmed the watercolor panel and added the decorative strip, added washi and the sentiment from Reverse Confetti Whole Lotta Happy using Memento Rich Cocoa and then added the pineapples using foam tape. I then added white Enamel Accents for some embellishing.
