Balloon birthday #49

Namaste, welcome to new challenge at AAA birthday challenge. Its time to blow some balloons for birthday, yes the theme for the challenge is Balloons. For more inspiration look here.

I made a card with CB birthday balloon stamp set. Is a retired stamp set but i love this set. I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the images. To make ny background i used mft cloud stencil. I stamped and masked the sentiment and then stamped the strings for balloons. Initially i thought of popping the c]balloons with foam tape but then just glued on the front panel then glued the panel on blue card base.

Do you love balloons? let me know in the comment.

Thank you

Birthday cards #46 AAA BIRTHDAY

Namaste, welcome to my space and i am here to share my cards for AAA BIRTHDAY challenge for february. Please make note that AAA birthday challenge is now monthly challenge it starts on 1st of the month. The theme is to use stencil. For more details visit here.

I literally struggled to make tjesecards. My plan was to ink blend but most of my inkpads are dry so i couldnt as i didnt get the right colour combination i wanted. So at the end i used embossing paste and embossing powder to make my card front.

I used wow embossing powders for the cards. Btw i have those die cut pieces which for sure you will see son in my posts on Instagram. @thedreampages1021

After joining AAA BIRTHDAY challenges i have kept few birthday sets in my reach so i can grab them quickly while making cards.. Thats why you see few sentiments again and again..

Hope you liked my cards, let me know which colour combination you liked. I hope you will join us at AAA BIRTHDAY challenges. Stay safe and keep crafting.

Thank you

CAS birthday card AAA #45

Namaste, welcome to my blog. Its new calendar year and new challenge at AAA birthday challenge. The theme of the challenge is Anything goes with birthday theme. For more details visit blog here.

Ink blending was always my favourite technique. But right now all my ink pads are dry so i cant use them. Its story of every year so i stopped reinking them. But for the first challenge of the calendar year so I ink blended small piece of paper and die cut it to make my card center and stamped a small sentiment which fits perfectly in this small space.

I dry embossed the card panel and added the ink blended piece on card front. For interest i used silver thread behind the sentiment and few enamel dots.

Here is my card

Thank you for visiting.

Thinking of you – HLS dies challenge

Namaste, welcome to my blog. Here I am with anew card for Happy little stampers dies challenge. For more details n inspiration about the challenge visit here.

I am really challenging myself for using more and more dies in my card designs and less of stamping. I made a layered card for this month’s challenge.

I used spellbinders dies for background design. Flowers and flourishes are from Heartfelt creations. Sentiment from Hero arts.

Did you like my take on the challenge. Let me know in the comments.

Stencilled card – CAS(E) this sketch!

Hi… Friends
Here is my entry for the CTS 129. Its the first time I am taking part in any card challenges so, little excited about it.
I was not so confident about stamping again so opted for stencilling. I used Khaki card stock for my one layer card. I used Prima stencil for the card and distress inks (first 4 release of this year and picked rasberry). I secured the card base and the stencil over my craft sheet so that i can work with ink blending.

I worked my way from left top corner to the right and then positioned it to work towards the bottom of the card base. I used the sentiment from Clearly besotted and stamped it with versafine black ink.
Thats it my one layer card for the challenge.
Suggestions are always welcome
