Congratulations - CAS Black and Gold Card

I am on a roll with this Black and Gold color combo. This is my third card in this series. You can view them all here. The card is pretty CAS and quite an effortless one. I just used my MS Lace Punch to punch out the golden embossed paper. Then just finished the card with Pie Lane wine glass stickers and Congratulations sentiment.

Just a Note - CAS Black and Gold Card

Hi people! I really love the current challenge at BGC and I think the color combo is something I have not tired before. I am just loving exploring the possibilities with it. So here is another take on it.
The golden paper is pre-embossed, which I found at a local store. The Lily of the Valley flower bunch is traced from a digital image and fussy cut. It indeed was a task to cut this delicate bunch. The sentiment is stamped on vellum and glued using glue dots. The tiny bow embellishment is from Itsy Bitsy.

Stencil Background Card 1

Hey, my today's card is made using The Crafter's Workshop fish scales stencil. I recently got some new stencils and was playing with them. For this card, I have used glossy card stock and I must say the results are very different than that on water color or non-glossy paper. I love the neat finish on glossy paper and also the fact that the inks look softer on it. On watercolor paper, they give a bolder look.
The leaves are also made using stencils and Forest moss distress ink and then fussy cut. The flowers are all handmade. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted sentiment stamp set.

Celebrate - CAS Black and Gold Card

Hi. Today I am sharing a CAS card in black and gold color theme. I am glad it turned out just the way I wanted it to be, though I could not capture it well in the pic. The background is done with stencil and Gold perfect pearls powder. I just loved how quick and easy it was. The wine glass stickers are from Pie Lane. I have been hoarding them since a long time and I had this vague idea of what I wanted to do with them.

This is how I made the background. Laid the stencil on CS, inked with VersaMark ink and then generously covered it with Perfect Pearls powder.

CAS Card - Spring

Hi. This is my second card for the day. This is based on a dress of a TV character that I saw last week. I could not find a screenshot of that dress, but will try to take a screen grab from the video and share here. The dress is inspired by Kapil's grandmom's dress from his show Comedy Nights with Kapil, 12 April episode.
The card is very simple and I like the colors. I have scored the sea green paper with MS Score Board. The colorful pattern paper complements the green and the lace completes the look.

Sending you love

Heya there! I am back with a CAS card today. Have been waiting to upload this since last few days. This card is inspired by Jennifer Mcguire's cards. I love the way she uses stamps to create such wonderful cards.

I have used the Inkadinkado Clear Stamps MOD FLOWERS INCHIE stamp set for this card. I have tried to mix and match the flowers and leaves to create a random bunch.

Guest DT post for Rainbow Craftykari Blog

Hi friends. Today I am showcasing 2 projects and a bunch of tutorials that I made as a Guest DT for Rainbow Craftykari blog. Few days back, Maninder got in touch with me on Facebook and invited me to design few projects using some stuff from her store. This is the gorgeous kit that she sent me to play with.
Few of the things in the kit were totally new to me like UTEE and flocking powder. And had it not been for Maninder, I would have never tried these things out. I must say I really enjoyed playing with my new craft goodies.
I created two projects using the stuff. Let me talk about them one by one. Since there are a lot of pics, I will keep the text short. 

Project 1: Door Hanger
I have given a vintage look to the door hanger. For the base, I have recycled the cardboard from PaperMania Chipboard album packaging and covered it using MME - Oxford Lane Plaid Pattern paper from Rainbow Craftykari Store. I have used lots of embellishments decorated using UTEE. The pictorial below will show you the step-by-step procedure on how I used UTEE. There is another pictorial for using flocking powder which I have used to cover the plain White Color me Crazy Petaloo flower from the kit.

Few closer shots...

Project 2: Wall hanging/Desk Keepsake

For this project, I used a sturdy cardboard base, covered it using MME - My Girl - Bouquet pattern paper from the kit and distressed the edges with Worn lipstick, Broken CHina and Vintage photo distress inks. The sentiment is stamped on a price tag. Here again, I have used many embellishments which I have transformed using UTEE. And then ofcourse I used the lovely flowers from the kit and lot of bling here and there. The tiny clothespin is colored in blue using a normal sketch pen.

 Now onto the tutorials...

Hope you enjoyed this post and will get inspired. If you have any questions feel free to ask me. Thank you Maninder for this opportunity and inviting me over your blog.
