Quick Birthday Card

Hello,

Today I have a card that I made in just 10 minutes :) Have a look!





I took a baby blue candles embossed cardstock, perfect for birthday. Sponged using blue distress ink, to highlight the candles and add more color. Then I cut out a circle and stamped candles in a pattern using the Lets Party stampset from Mudra. I also stamped the sentiment from the same stampset onto another white cardstock, distressed with blue. Finally attached all together and mounted the panel onto navy blue cardstock.

Watercolor themed ATC

Hello,

A small break from cards, I'm back today with an ATC that I made for a swap, with the theme Watercolor Wonder.




For this ATC, I've used Bielo cs and TCW Mini Punchinella stencil. Sponged using green and yellow distress inks, ran a lace through the bottom, stamped the sentiment, added a flower embellishment and the panel is ready :) Stick it over the base green cs, and the ATC is ready to be sent across!

Happy Birthday - Party Hat

Hello,

Here is a quick and simple card made for a little girl's 4th birthday :)

I've used the party hats pattern paper from Nakshathra Designz's Birthday pack. Ran a twine around with a bow, and the sentiment is from Mudra's Let's Party stamp set. The sentiment is heat embossed using white embossing powder. The panel is mounted on to navy blue cs.

CAS - Hello

Hello,

I have made quite a number of cards this month and here is the next CAS card :)




For this card, I took a square Bielo cs and blended distress inks in rainbow colors, radiating from the center to the outside of the card. Then I've attached the stencil from Itsy Bitsy to the distressed panel using masking tape, and dabbed on the open areas using a wet wipe. This technique is so simple and gives a beautiful effect by fading the stencil area :) I also added mod podge with diagonal brush strokes to add more interest. It is attached to the base cs using foam tape. The butterfly embellishment is also from Itsy Bitsy and I've stamped the sentiment using Altenew pigment ink.
