A birthday Card!

Hey there!

A quick post sharing a Birthday card I made for PC call but did not have time to submit:(

How much I wish I had more than 24 hours per day? There are so mnay things to do but such less time! Anyway! Gold is trendy at the moment.  Especially with mint and coral colours. I see them in jewellery, fashion, shoes, cushions………….. everywhere really!  I had some gold embossing powder in my stash for a very very long time. It finally came to good use:) Here is my card.
I have gold embossed the flower cluster and sentiment on coral cardstock panel. I also gold embossed flower petals and the banner bit of the senitment on a mint cardstock. Cut them out and layered them on to the coral panel.. I then mounted this panel on to a white cardbase. Love the movement the falling flowers brings and draws the eyes to the sentiment. Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!

CAS- usual Friday Challenge

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #90

Hey my dear craft friends and blog visitors,

Aha! today is Friday and I cannot wait for Saturday. I can sleep in a bit in the morning. Since school started, I have been sleeping by midnight and waking up at 5:00AM!! I have dark circles under my eyes right now Cry! Heavy eyelids and plenty of chores to do….

OK! Let me stop talking about myself and share with you this week’s CAS-ual Fridays theme! You will like it:)


Yes! Black and White plus one colour of your choice……
Here is my card!

Coral colour is trendy right now. So I chose it as my colour. I inked my acrylic pad with the coral ink and stamped directly on my card stock  I then used the images from the new released Beanstalks stamp set and stamped them using Archival jet Black Ink. I love this ink because it is the true black image you get and perfect coverage as well. I deliberately stamped a few outside the colour block and did the same with the sentiment to create balance.
 Hope you like it!

Now check out CAS-ual Fridays Blog for the what rest of the Design Teams have done with this challenge and we also have three new stamp sets released this month which will be available at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Store. And the new Design Team announcement too! Exciting:)

This week’s challenge winner will receive a stamp set or your choice from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

CAS(E) this Sketch! Challenge #15

Hey everybody,

How are you? I had a good 3 day break from blogging. Not that I didn’t craft but I didn’t blog. But today I have a new sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch challenge by Lisa Arana!
Here is the sketch for you.

Perfect CAS sketch! I really love this sketch. I have taken a literal approach and made my card.

I have used Uniko Studio’s Wonderful Washi and stamped in different neon colours and cut them out to various sizes. Then I layered them and glued them down to the card panel. I hand drew the stitching with black fine tip pen. Then finally stamped the sentiment from Fontiment stamp set from Uniko Studio on a strip of card stock. Trimmed the ends to make banner and foam mounted it.

Love the neon colours. They are very vibrant and beautiful together. Hope you like it.

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch blog for more inspirations from the rest of the design teams. I know this sketch is going to produce vast number of gorgeous cards in the gallery. I just cannot wait to see it:)

Thanks for visiting! It is almost 11:00PM. I better go to bed. Otherwise I cannot wake up early for school preparations tomorrow:)

Cloud9 February Blog Hop!

Today is 9th of the month and it is time for Cloud9 Blog Hop!

You would have already seen this month’s inspiration from the Cloud 9 Blog. If not, here it is for you.

I was inspired by the pink, red & kraft colours and the pockets. 
Here is my take on the picture.

I have used these stamp sets from Wplus9 to make my card.

A PocketfulA Pocketful: ValentineSo 80's

I really love the grunge from the So 80’s set which provided the beautiful backdrop and sets off the intensity  red colour of the sweets. I have used kraft pocket and raised it suing foam adhesives Added a few more of the sweets on the bottom and stamped the sentiment at an angle. I also added an arrow which is trendy at the moment.

Hope you like my interpretation of the picture. Check out Cloud 9 Blog for more inspirations from rest of the DTs. There is a linky in the blog to link your project. One lucky winner will receive a stamp set of your choice from Wplus9.
