Lanterns!!

I'm here to share with you another CAS Thank You card. I recently was selected in Friends with Flair Friday in Unity and received their prize on Saturday. I was pleasantly surprised to find quite a lot of stamps in the package :). I wanted to try a few immediately! So here is the card:


The flower branch is the stamp from the set Get it Before They’re Hex-a-gone from Unity stamps. I inked it using brown and violet sketch pens and colored it with the same.



I hand drew the lanterns on a card stock, fuzzy cut it and covered it with washi tape and layered it on the card.


The sentiment is handwritten.

Japanese Washi Fans

Hello everyone!! I'm sharing another CAS thank you card :) I'm in need of quite a few thank you cards now, for a swap that I'm hosting. So you'll be seeing a few in the next couple of days as well.

Here is my card:


The Japanese fans are made by sticking washi tape on to fan-folded paper. A closer look at them here:


The strip on the top right is also a washi tape. The sentiment is hand written. The triangles on the bottom corners and the one on the top of the sentiment are all washi tapes.

Lilies

Hello all, I'm here to share with you another CAS Thank You card with one of my first few trials of coloring a digi with sketch pens. I'm quite satisfied with the coloring. You can see it for yourself.
Here is the card:

The beautiful digi is from Digistamps 4 Joy. You can find it here. I colored it with sketch pens and tried to give it different shades to show the depth. Quite satisfied with the result. Then I fuzzy cut it and stuck it on a circle of black card stock before placing it on the card. 



I added a few sequins. The sentiment is hand written on green handmade paper layered on black card stock.



Please do let me know what you think about it and any tips on coloring.

Christmas Poinsettia

Hello!! I'm here to share with you a Christmas card that I made recently. Without much ado, here it is:



I was inspired by the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch's current challenge. I made the strip of leaves with the cedar punch, which is one of my favorites :). I made the poinsettia with a flower punch and used glitter for the center.


A closer look at the poinsettia.


The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps "Christmas Penguins Clear Stamp Set "(Couldn't find the link now). 

I recently bought some sequins and find it looks good on most cards :)
After a long time, I had a chance to take the pictures in natural light :) The photos look good in natural light. Usually I rush and take pictures at max 30 mins before a contest ends :) Today I had plenty of time to take pics ;)

Cherry Blossom

Hello everyone!! I have another CAS Thank You card to share with you today. This is inspired by the Spring Cherry Blossoms. I've been meaning to make one since Spring. I know it is almost Fall. But finally, here it is:


I used DCWV White Embossed sheet. I hand drew the branch. The flowers are made with punches. The buds are again hand drawn.




 The sentiment is hand written. I saw a font on a card in Pinterest and tried to copy it :) Quite satisfied with it.


Another view of the card.

Fox Thank You

I'm sharing a 'Thank you' card that I made recently. Here is the card:


The Fox is a stamp from the Unity Stamp's Follow Your Own set. I fussy cut it and used foam tape for a dimension. The umbrella is a stamp, again from unity, an itty bitty called Cheer Up. It is paper pieced with washi tapes.


The grass is a washi tape punched with a border punch. The ones on the top corners are also the same washi tape but with a different border punch. the lace like one is also a washi tape which I have bought recently. I added a few sequins which I bought recently.



The sentiment is from a stamp set which I bought from Target on clearance sometime back. Believe me, it cost me less than a dollar and it had a stamp pad also :) We feel happy when we get a good price, don't we :) I drew the brackets and the line with sketch.

I made the card loosely following the sketch for the Unity Challenge.

Merry Christmas

Hello everyone!! I made a Christmas card now that I want to share with you all.

This card is inspired by the card that <> had made for the CASE Study 4th Anniversary 4th week Blog Hop. You can find it here.

Here is my card:




I used the stamp from Joanna Sheen's "Make A Wish" set. The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps "Christmas Penguins Clear Stamp Set "(Couldn't find the link now).


I colored it using sketch pens. For the center of the Poinsettia, I used glitter. The sequins are actually golden color but look like brown in the picture. I'm satisfied with the outcome :)

Please do leave your thoughts and suggestions.
