Cards with Optima papers

I am sharing a couple of cards made using the "Optima" pattern papers by Bob n Betty!
I was a little confused to start with as I mostly like making CAS cards. I saw a number of mixed media creations made using pattern papers and was inspired to make these two cards.  I tried to maintain the CAS style. 
I chose the printed white paper from the pack for both my cards. I found this paper a little less busy to be used in the background as I was making the cards in CAS style. 
I cut 4"x6" panels for both the cards. 


I distressed the edges of this card and adhered it to my card base. I die-cut few more pieces using various papers from the pack. I distressed them all and adhered them on the card, creating levels using foam tape. Next, I created the arrangement using cheesecloth, flowers, leaves etc and adhered it all to the card. I added few microbeads using glossy accents. Added a sentiment to the card. Lastly, added few enamel dots to complete my card. 
Few more pictures


I added a piece of vellum (to tone down the effect of the print) to the white paper panel and adhered this to the card base. I die-cut an oval using another paper from the pack. I stamped the sentiment on the vellum using Archival ink. Foam-mounted the oval die-cut. I fussy cut some floral images from the paper pack. Arranged and adhered the florals on the card creating some levels. Lastly, added few enamel dots to complete my card.

You're always in my heart

Mother's day is just a few days away. Today, I have a cute card just right for the Mother's day! 
For a mother, her child is always a part of her heart. 
No matter how old, how far...Isn't it true..?

Here's my card expressing a mother's love!

I coloured the digis and fussy cut them. Stencilled the tree on the card panel, stamped the sentiment and adhered the digis (Tree trunk directly on the card and the mother-baby image using foam adhesive) Adhered this panel on a coloured card base.

For my card, I have used the freebie floral image from Uniko. Thank you Bev for these awesome freebies in your store. Uniko is on my wishlist for a long long time now. I was so delighted to see these freebies being offered that I made this card using the freebie image.

I was inspired by Tracey's card at the Muse challenge blog. I love the CAS design of her card and the soft colours she has used on her card. I have tried to CASE her card.

Some bunny loves u

Hi! A quick CAS card on the blog today!
I am using Jane's Doodles stamp set "Boris the bunny" here for this card.

I received this stamp set from Crafty Milka in addition to my Challenge win prize for I love Math challenge. This is a lovely stamp set with many cute images.

For my card, I have used the Bunny, flowers and the collective hearts. Stamped them all on a watercolour paper, coloured with Zig markers and fussy cut them all. On a top folding white card base, I masked the card leaving a circular portion of it. Distressed this using Twisted citron DI. Spritzed some water over it and dabbed it off. Stamped the sentiment on a strip. Assembled all the elements on the card, creating layers by adhering some directly and some using foam adhesive.

Flying by to say hi

Sharing my DT post for Craftin Desert Divas
I made a card using the Bunny heart balloon digi from the store.

Here's my card!

I coloured the image using Zig markers, fussy cut all the elements of the image and kept ready. 
On a white card, I printed the sentiment at the bottom. On the top, I created the sky effect by cutting the shapes on a scrap paper and distressing using the distress inks.
I gave this panel a little curvy shape at the bottom and separated the sentiment from the rest of the panel. On a grey card base, adhered the two parts leaving a little distance between them. I adhered the top panel directly on my card but the sentiment was lifted a little by foam underneath. 
Lastly, assembled all the elements of the digital stamp on the top part. 

Few more pictures.

That's all for today!

Home is...

Hi there,
I am showcasing this CAS style card today.

For my card, I have used supplies for various brands. 
I simply love to see how all these nicely fell into place. Each element has it's own importance on this card and cannot be done without.

I began by die-cutting all the elements for my card using coloured papers. 
I have used the following dies -
MFT Birdhouses
Sizzix Bird#5
Lawn Fawn Grass
Paper Smooches Foliage 1

Started by first pasting the Birdhouses flat on a card panel. I have mix-matched the colours here. Next, I stamped the sentiment which from Jane's Doodles "Home Sweet Home" stamp set. I mounted this panel on a top-folding card base using foam adhesive. Adhered the tiny birds directly and the mother bird using a thin foam underneath. Stamped two musical notes from the Lawn Fawn's "Year Four - Hippo birdie" stamp set. Adhered the leaf at the top and the layered grass at the bottom. Lastly, added a tiny heart near the sentiment to complete the card.

 Here are some more pictures

Peonies Bouquet

Hello everyone!

I am sharing my DT post for Craftin Desert Divas today. 
I have made a couple of cards using the Peonies bouquet digital stamp from the store. This is a very cute image to work with. 

I made two 4"x4" notecards using this digi. 

I started by printing them on a watercolour paper, colouring them with Zig markers and fussy cutting them. I prepared the backgrounds for both the cards. 


I took a 3.75" x3.75" white card panel. Using zig markers and Aqua pen, I made stripes all over this panel. Once dry, I mounted this panel on a 4"x4" pale yellow card base using foam adhesive. I printed the sentiment and cut the strip. Mounted the image and the sentiment using foam adhesive. Lastly, added few clear Nuvo crystal drops to the card. 


I took a 3.75" x3.75" white card panel. Printed the sentiment on it. Using the Sorted shapes - 1 stencil and Squeezed lemonade distress ink, I created the background. 
Once dry, I mounted this panel on a 4"x4" peach coloured card base using foam adhesive. Mounted the image using foam adhesive. Lastly, added few clear Nuvo crystal drops to the card.
