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.

A closer view on the flower.

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.

Explosion Box

Hello all.. I'm back with another creation. Yesterday was our 3rd anniversary :) It's been 3 happy years with my lovely husband. I wanted to make something special for my husband. I've been wanting to try out an explosion box for quite some time and decided to give it a go. So here is my anniversary explosion box.

To embellish the lid, I used a few punched flourishes. I added a diecut and wrote "Happy Anniversary". The glitter is a 3D liner.

The outside of the box is pretty CAS with a few hearts on a couple of side.

I used the Filigree Heart stamp from Lili of the Valley and used 3D glitter outliner on it.

On the inside, I wrote some quotes about marriage and added some charms on each side.

The puzzle piece and birds charms are from Blue Moon beads. The small glass bottle is from Pinque Peacock. The black ribbon is from my stash.

The centerpiece is a lattice arch with creepers on it (stopped myself from adding flowers on it). Added some flowers on the floor too.

The arch is perfect to hold some message.

What do you think of it? Please leave your comments and thoughts.
