Stripy Birthday card

 Hello friends I have yet another Birthday card to share today (Can one have enough birthday cards ??)
Started by stamping pattern using Strips stamp set (Winnie & Walter)on one side and then masked the stamped pattern with acetate so I could see the pattern and line up properly to stamp other side.I used black Archival ink and distress inks for stamping.
The pattern looked good but I had no idea what to do next ! After few trials came up with this idea of foam mounting strip with pattern,Heat embossed sentiment (Winnie & Walter),vellum and some glitter to jazz it up .

I find using cracked pistachio ,grey & black for masculine colors a lot these days,hope you are not tired of seeing it ! The card looks quiet formal(in other words boring) ,what do you think ?

CAS Mixed Media Card

Hello friends ,Today I have a birthday card to share with you all.The dahlia flower and leaves are digis from SNS,nothing new on design front !
Can you guess the coloring medium ?

The humble WAX CRAYONS !! I was surprised to find so many shades of single color in my crayon stash.I had 5 variations for blue and 4 for green ! If you are wondering how I blended these colors,heat is the secret.Heating causes the wax to melt and get absorbed into paper and you are free to layer colors on top.I heated between each layer of color and I could even use color pencils for shadows and highlights.

For the background ,I applied texture paste through dots stencil (Craft Tangles) and layered a golden glitter circle beneath it.A pp strip to add some more color and finished of with heat embossed sentiment strip(W & W).

I had almost added few sequins but resisted as the card already had too much ;) What do you think of it ?

Quick Masuline card !

Well not exactly pure masuline but will serve the purpose ;) Its no secret that I am crazy for triangles and when I need last minute card for guy.Its my go to stamp.The design is a bit similar to my previous card.(I told ya..I am hooked !)

May not look like but took me just 10 mins to create it(except the time to clear the mess ;))I had all my supplies out.Smooshed cracked pistachio DI on water color paper.Stamped the triangles(W&W Rectangled & Triangled)and decorated with some handcut ones.Used a black glitter foam to jazz up the card.Drew few small triangles with black pen and finished off with sentiment strip (HLS- Mix Mash)

Would love to know your go to stamp!Thanks for visiting :)
