Mixed Media CAS card!

Here is my final entry for the MFT Superstar Card Contest. This time I decided to play with some stencils, stamps and dies to create this CAS mixed media card. I love how these flowers are so versatile and are perfect for any card style. Guess I am having too much fun using

Pattern Play!

Here is my second entry for the MFT Superstar Card Contest. This time I decided to play with the patterns. I made the background patterned paper using the leaves from the Flashy Florals stamp set. I used Delicata Black shimmer ink. I then cut the tiny check patterned paper. I sponged some ink for my next mat layer. For the final layer behind the florals I used the biggest of the Precious Polaroid frames dies.

I normally would have gone for some watercolor effect but this stamp just called for a layered card :) AND I am happy I did go for it.

Thanks for dropping by! I will add the supplies tomorrow :)

Acetate card with Gilded background!

Hello everyone!!! Yup, it's been long since I shared any project here. I was away last week in Phoenix to be with the wonderful peeps at Richard Garay and Fun Stamper's journey. It was such a fun learning experience. It felt like being part of a small crafty family :)

I wanted to play along the MFT Superstar Card Contest but was experiencing jetlag so wasn't able to create. I felt much better today and had to play along as I love love MFT stamps and dies, eventhough I don't have many of their products at the moment. 
So I decided to challenge myself to use the beautiful florals I have and play with them using a different technique than normal watercoloring :)
I used acetate on my card front and I did use gilding flakes for this wonderful effect. I really like the Autumn hues and hope you like it too.

Thanks for dropping by! I will add the supplies tomorrow as it's getting late here and I am glad to be able to finish in time :)

Love you a Bunch!

Hello and Happy Monday everyone! Today I am sharing a card using the lovely inspiration photo for our September challenge over at Waffle Flower Crafts.

Party Like A Rockstar

Hello everyone!

Today is a special post and I am so excited to tell you that I will be guest designing for Your Next Stamp in the month of September. I recently came across their products and fell in love with them.
You can check out my Introductory post HERE.

For my card today I used this cuuuteee Monster from Silly Monster Rockstars stamp set. I used the matching dies too.
I first created the galaxy background as it's perfect with the sentiment...why if you are thinking. It's cos I have half the sentiment to the inside of my card. So the sentiment is Party like a ROCKSTAR. And I just went with the word

It was fun coloring him :)

And the inside of the card

I want to thank Karen and Julie for inviting me over. And don't forget to check out the will really love all the awesome products!!
