Black & Gold Easel Card

I'm here with another CAS creation, with a color combo that I wanted to do for a very long time.

I love CAS cards. So when I saw Keisha's card here, I wanted to make one based on her card. Here is her card:

. Black is one of my favorites... I've always admired the combination of black and gold colors. What could be more fitting than a Christmas card with golden ornaments!! Also, I've been wanting to try easel cards for a very long time. So here is my card.

The ornament is a stamp from Joanna Sheen's "Make A Wish" set and the sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps "Christmas Penguins Clear Stamp Set "(Couldn't find the link now). I stamped them using grey ink (I didn't have white ink pad) and used my gold color glitter gel pen on it. It took me some time to re-trace the stamped image with glitter pen, but I feel it was worth the effort. Gold on black is a lovely color combination!!

I recently bought a Martha Stewart Snowflake punch and was waiting to use it. So here it is :) Colored it with golden glitter pen.

Closer look at the ornaments.

I'm still learning the art of stamping and in each new card, I would say I'm getting atleast a little bit better than the previous one. I'm glad about it and still looking forward to more learning experiences :)

Do share your thoughts and comments on the card. I love reading them.

Happy Birthday

Hello all, I'm back with another birthday card that I made for my Father-in-law.

It is a pretty CAS card. Most of my regular readers would now know that CAS has become my new favorite :) I used the PP from Colorbok - Delilah paper pad and center one is a washi tape. The bow is cut using a border punch. The sentiment is from "Stamping Bella - Uptown Girl POSH has a present" stamp.

I embossed the bottom part of card with my score board.

Happy Birthday Appa

I somehow deleted this original post. So I'm re-posting it. Lost all comments though :(

Today is my father's birthday. So here I am with the card that I made for him.

I tried a black and white combination. I used the Itsy Bitsy Flourishes stencil and colored it with black ink pad. I used the 'Follow your own' stamp set from Unity for the center and the bottom part of the card, including the sentiment.

A closer look at the sentiment stamping.

I'm still learning the curves of stamping. Please do leave your thoughts and comments.

Just Sayin!

Hello people, I'm back again with another CAS creation... I've been experimenting with stamping and this particular one uses Unity "Follow Your Own" set.

Here is the card.

I have used the flowers and the 'Just Sayin' sentiment from the stamp set. Colored the image with my sketch pen. Cut the border with my border punch.

CAS Joy Card

Hello all, I'm back again with a CAS "Wishing you Joy" card. I've become a fan of CAS cards because, one - I really like them and two - because I can finish it quickly. Finding time for crafting has become really difficult for me now :) and so the second reason has become a major factor in deciding my crafting style :)

Onto the card. What really inspired me to make this card was the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch challenge!

Also, I was waiting to use my Unity Stamp sets!! So here comes the card!

The "wish" and the "wishing you joy" are from the Unity - Follow Your Own" stamp set. The decorative lines are from the Sweet and Sassy - Decorative Frame Toppers Clear Stamp Set

I used some bright colors of STIX Sketch pens, which actually don't show up very well in the picture. The colors are inspired by the Cosmic Color Challenge and the Unity Challenge.

It didn't really come up to my expectation!! Please do let me know your thoughts and comments...

Happy Birthday Amma

Today is my mother's birthday. I miss her so much more, now that I'm half way across the world!! Here is the card that I made for her.

She loves the color orange. So I added some orange flowers.

The flowers are handmade using punches. I embossed the lower right part of the card with my scoring board. I love how it has turned out. The sentiment is from "Stamping Bella - Uptown Girl POSH has a present" stamp.

If you are interested, please let me know and I will share the tutorial for making this flower.
