CAS Birthday Wishes

Hello friends! I have been MIA for long, I apologize for not dropping by your blogs. I have a quick card to share today. All the credit for card layout goes to Pinterest,I was inspired by a print design.

I love coloring these large magnolias as large open areas enable to add details very easily. I have paired them with some gold embossing.
The sentiment says “hoping your birthday is filled with all you love”. 

I didn’t add any embellishments to the card,kept it simple.

Supplies used:
Stamps: Magnolias for her (Altenew),Scenery-strips(W&W), Sentimental-Birthday(W&W).
Distress Inks:Spun sugar,Fired bricks
Onyx black pigment ink,Versafine watermark ink
Rangers Gold Embossing powder
Akashiya watercolor brush pens

Beautiful day

Hello friends, I am back with a floral card today.

I made the background using magical shakers .After the bg was dry I stamped the floral image repeatedly and heat embossed it in black. To add some interest to the card design I split the panel in two and foam mounted them on cardbase. Gold heat embossed “Beautiful”.

Finished off with few gems. It does not show in photos but the magical shakers have beautiful shimmer.

Supplies used:
Stamp-Charmed (Altenew)
LSG Magical Shakers-Ocktoberfest Orange, Cuckoo Clock Cardinal
Onyx Black pigment ink
Catherine Pooler rocking red dye Ink 
Rangers Clear Embossing powder

Cute Critter Orchestra

Cute Critter Orchestra welcomes you to special performance!
Do check the video to see them perform.

Here is how it started,

I stamped the background using white ink on textured black card stock and drew the other details with embossing pen and heat embossed them.Then I stamped the critters separately on white cardstock with light ink water-colored and fussy cut them with few extra body parts.

I got this idea from paper dolls/puppet were the body part are attached with Brad's to allow movement.Only problem.was how to connect all of them to single tab.Then I came across this card  by Laura and her post had a tutorial.
l know my tab is a bit large! Made a matching envelope for the card.

Supplies used:

Three stamp sets from W&W(Multigrain ,Party On,The party hangover)
White pigment ink
Rangers Emboss It pen.
Clear embossing powder
Brustro Water color paper
Faber Castle connector color pens
Lots of brads
