Thinking of You

Hello everyone!! I'm here to post a CAS card that I made today.

I cut out the lattice design using my cricut. I used a cut file from Bird's cards and modified it to fit my card. I used black paper for the lattice.

The heart is a stamp from the CTMH Family is Forever stamp set. I stamped it on black paper and heat embossed with gold powder. I then fuzzy cut it and used a foam tape for some dimension. The sentiment is stamped using stamps from the Winnie & Walter - The Big, The Bold and You stamp set. I added a few sequins from my stash.

Floral Happy Birthay

Hello Everyone!! I'm posting this in my blog after a very long time. Like I had mentioned in my previous post, I had gone to India for a little more than 2 months. As soon as we came back, me and my daughter had cold and fever. Now both of us are doing good. So I decided to work on my craft table. And here's what I made.

This is a pretty new style for me. I have not made many cards with pattern papers and layers. So this is indeed a giant leap for me, from the CAS style. I sponged the edges of a white cardstock with VersaMagic Oasis Green ink. The pattern paper is from Colorbok - Delilah paper pad. The white embossed paper is from the DCWV Embossed Paper pad. The other white panel on the bottom right is cut from my Cricut using the Stitched Frames by Inspired By Stamping (this was released as a freebie in one of their newsletters (You should check out this month's free digi. It's very beautiful). I used VersaMagic Oasis Green ink to color the edges of this frame as well. The pearls are from my stash.

The center panel is a die cut that I had in my stash. Again, the edges were inked with VersaMagic Oasis Green ink to match with the color scheme. I stamped the sentiment from a stamp set that a dear blog friend Holley of Holley's Blog had sent recently. I again used the VersaMagic Oasis Green ink for stamping and embossed it with clear powder.

The flowers and buds are handmade. I used my flower punch and ear buds. The leaves are die cut. I enjoyed making them and they did come out very well.

Edit: Adding a few more photos.

Moments to Treasure

Hello everyone!! I'm sharing a altered wooden plaques that I made quite recently. I've been meaning to alter this wooden plaque that I had bought almost a year back, but never got to it. So finally, I dived into it last week and I'm quite satisfied with the outcome.

Here it is.

I covered it with white acrylic paint using the Adriondack white paint dabber. Then I gave a few coats of blue acrylic paint (I really was not sure if the white coat was necesary. But since this is my first project, I was nervous about the outcome. I'm really not that good at painting. I sprayed water, applied blue paint and continued doing this until I was frustrated ;) ). I then used 2 small Studio G stamps and part of a stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps' Decorative Frame Toppers Clear Stamp Set to create a beautiful background with silver ink pad. I used my heat tool to dry it.

Then I stamped the chandelier and the sentiment "Moments to Treasure" from Whimsy Stamps' A Touch of Elegant Furniture and embossed it with white embossing powder.

I punched out a butterfly using my MS punch and used hot glue to stick it. I bought this glue gun quite a while back and was really scared to use it. But finally I opened the package and I used tweezers to hold the butterfly while sticking it :) But after using it once, I really love it!!!

I punched out a few pine leaves using the MS punch and added a few white flowers from my stash. I used hot glue for this also.

Thank You Shaker Card

Hello everyone!! I've been MIA for some time now. My daughter poured water on my laptop and I was without a laptop for almost 2 weeks :)

Anyway, I wanted to share my first shaker cards that I made last week.

I used a dark pink handmade paper for the tag. The acetate is from some packaging. The pattern paper behind the shaker element is from my stash. The pink crystal flower is from Dollar Tree the brown crystal flower and beads are also from my stash.

The flowers, leaves and the curly banner are from Winnie & Walter - The Big, the Bold and Extras. I stamped them and embossed them with white embossing powder and colored using watercolors and fuzzy cut them. I used foam tape to layer the flowers. So the arrangement has some dimension. The words 'thank' & 'you' are from Winnie & Walter - The Big, the Bold and You.

Star Paper Lantern

Hello everyone!! I'm here to share a Star paper lantern that I made for Christmas. I'm a little late in posting it. In India it is a tradition to hang stars for Christmas. This is my first Christmas here in the US.

I was inspired by the Stars I saw in Debbie's blog. She has shared the SVG files for the basic star template in her blog for free.

Here is pic of the star with light at night.

I modified the SVG file to cut the triangle on each side. I have learnt a little bit on how to use the Cricut software. I used poster board for the frame and tissue paper for the triangular cut on each side.

I really love how it came out.

Hope you all had a good celebration for Christmas and wish you a very happy New Year :)
