More CAS cards!

Hello everyone! From day 21st to 25th I was super busy.. Shopping, decorating, Supposed Christmas at Church and a little party at home for our neighbour children and finally main Christmas party at Church and home.. Enjoyed a lot and ate too much cakes, cookies and sweets.. :D think I've gained a few more extra pounds.. lol... ;)

Yesterday night, after dinner I made few cards.. And here are the pics.. :)

Bus, road was hand drawn and colored using Memento inks.. I slightly flipped the sketch.. :)
Entering this card for CASE this Sketch #58 

I used distress inks and clear embossing powder on this card. You must be really quick while heat embossing with distress inks.. :)

I love this funky card and the colors are too vibrant.. :D

Entering all the three cards for DCAM #5 CAS cards challenge..

Hope you guys like it..

See you very soon.. Take care.. :)

CAS cards + Stamping Techniques

Hello everyone! I'm here with three CAS cards with three Stamping techniques again.. :) I used Reverse Stamping Technique, Jacob's Coat Stamping Technique and Thumping Stamping Technique... I'm entering all these three cards for Color Conceptions #6_Stamping Techniques and DCAM #5 Clean and Simple cards.. [sorry I messed up with the sentiments on all the three cards. :( ]

Here is the first one with Reverse Stamping technique..

Here is the closure look..

For the second card I used Jacob's Coat Stamping Technique..

Here is the closure look

I have a tip or trick for you ;) There are many variations on this technique but what I found was... First take two shades of inks, here I took cantoloupe and tangelo inks. Rubbed on a glossy cs with cantaloupe and then stamped dots with tangelo ink.. Then stamped the flowers with versamark ink and poured clear embossing powder over the stamped image. Then heat set it with my Ranger heat tool (using heat gun was my first and awesome experience.. :D) Later I took a Neon ink and rubbed on to the cs.. Simply wipe off with a tissue paper.. You'll find the light orange color with dots on the inside part of the embossed flowers. Trust me this is cool in real life.. 

And here is the last card with Thumping Stamping Technique.. This is so much fun.. :)

Here is the closure look..

Hope you guys enjoyed! Will be back soon with few more cards..

Have fun and take care.. :) :)

I love stamping and trying out new techniques a lot, I must say I experimented with these techniques. But I'm not that satisfied with the results. Alright! The techniques I used here was Shattered glass, Motion and Reflection Stamping techniques.. :)

The technique I used here was Shattered Glass Stamping Technique..

I used Motion Stamping Technique on this one.. I think it's great for a guy, a masculine card!!

Addicted to Stamps and More #75

Hello everyone! Welcome to our 'photo inspiration' week at ATSM. Well.. before sharing my card I would like to share few things with you all.. My entry stood among the favourites at KIS , so happy.. :D Another thing... I made a wedding card and box on order.. Here is the pic.. :)

Okay okay! let's move on to our challenge again, 'photo inspiration'.. We have a great pic for you and I must admit the fact that it was too difficult for me to draw an inspiration from it. :) 

Hmmn! ya! I got inspired by the warm golden colors and ornaments, red and green colors and I felt that it's a bit romantic.. And ofcourse Christmas means snow and snow fall.. so I gave a little bit of romantic touch to my card..  :)

Here is my card with the sponsor image. We are being sponsored by Sami Stamps, really cool stamps, and the winner will receive $12 to their store..

I love that couple... Well.. I water colored the image with Memento inks. Distressed the back ground with vintage photo and broken china inks. Hung those ornaments (glitter foam punched out using a hole punch) using an embroidery thread.  Created the snow bank by tearing three papers and stuck the image in to the snow.. Finally tapped my paint (white color) brush to give that snowfall feel.. :)

Here is the closure view..

Scrap Paper Fun!

A bloggy friend of mine and a co design team mate (ATSM), Nonni is running Christmas Challenges. She is an awesome card maker and I adore her work a lot. I made this card for her Christmas Card Challenge #2 where the challenge is to make card with scrap paper or using old stash.. 

Few scrap papers were lying on my desk and they were all from white cardstock..

I colored them with purple and blue color inks and the color inspiration was drawn from KIS #27. KIS is celebrating her 1st birthday. Happy Birthday.. :)

Then adhered them on a white panel. I got this idea from Kristina Werner's video.. I love her cards a lot.. :)
Finally used Lawn Fawn alpha stickers. Please don't ask me why I used black for a merry card.. ;) ;)

Also entering this for Simon Says Stamp_Anything goes..

Ok guys! See you soon. Take care.. :)

Here is what I've created with the sponsor image. We have an awesome sponsor, Deedee's digis. The winner will receive three digi sets.. How cool!!

I colored the image with water colors then created a snow bank. I distressed the card base with broken china distress ink, you can see the blue shade behind the snow bank. I made small slits on the snow bank and then I stuck the diecuts. Just created a snowy and wintery scene.. :D
