Love – wedding card

Hello! Yesterday I created a “Love” floral themed scrapbook layout. I used my floral stamps and of course I stamped extra to make cards. So today I want to share a card using a technique I saw on a  Youtube  video a while back by Yana Smakula. She shared this “perfect cardmaking formula” for CAS cards. I have been wanting to try it and finally did it. Sometimes I feel that I have so many ideas I want to try that I see on social media but just so little time!

The card I created is for a wedding, but I think it can be used for whatever occasion and for  the loved ones.

I diecut the crisscross background from Paper Issues with my Cameo. (They have so many awesome cutfiles for free) I wanted to have a textured background for extra interest but yet subtle, so I cut it in white.

Then I diecut and emboss the frame with a Spellbinders die with a piece of gold cardstock.  The flower is with Altenew Beautiful Day stamp and the smaller ones are from Garden Treasure stamp set. I colored in the smaller flowers with my Prismacolors.

I will definitely make more of these CAS cards. I love this “perfect cardmaking formula for CAS”! Next time I probably will try diecutting some frames with the Cameo or even trying it with some similar stamps and heat embossed it with gold. And maybe I should also make my cards by gauging the size of frames with the size of flowers. In this card, the flower seems a little too big for my little frame lol but it still turned out well I think.

Sketch N Scrap Card Sketch #86 – CAS card

Hello! I am sharing a short post today,  sharing a simple card inspired by card sketch on Sketch N Scrap.

This is the fun sketch created by Lisa on Sketch N Scrap that is quite versatile for any occasion.


CAS Have fun card

I had the “FUN” banner cut apart from a 12×12 patterned paper in my stash for the longest time and added the “HAVE” alphabet stickers to complete the banner. I decided to use the sticker “worry about the details later” from Shimelle Go Now Go sticker book. Sometimes we should have fun right now without overthinking, right. I thought it would be a fun card to send to a friend.

Thank You cards on Sketch N Scrap

Hello! It’s Friday card share with Sketch N Scrap again! It’s the last card sketch for the month and I had a lot of fun making cards this month!

My cards are inspired by this card sketch in the archive created by Lisa on Sketch N Scrap:


My card:

Thank you card using Shimelle True Stories

I used all the papers from Shimelle True Stories. I fussy cut out the coffee cup from the patterned paper and also the lid. I pop up the lid with foam tape for the extra dimension. I also punched out little hearts from other scraps from the same paper pad and embellished the card. I stamped “thanks” sentiment and pop it up as well on the coffee cup.

I found the card design so cute, and I made cards in smaller versions and thought it would be perfect for the gift cards to coffee/tea places.

Masculine Birthday card

Hello! Today I have another birthday card to share. It’s been a long time since I made a card without any patterned paper. So it was a lot fun just with inks and stamp and a cup of ice water to make my card.

Firstly, I was inspired by this card sketch designed by Heather on Sketch N Scrap.


I was really inspired by the drips and circular rings. So I wanted that to be the main background of my card. First I blended some Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink onto the card front. Then I had a glass of ice water that had been sitting for a few minutes on the table and put in on my card for a few seconds. Then I just moved the cup to a different position where I want the ring next. It’s just really cool how distress inks works with water.

Then I make some splatters by dropping some water droplets onto the card.

It was really fun and easy to make. Then I stamped my imaged and colored it with Distress Inks as well.

I think it worked really well for a masculine birthday card. Super fun and simple birthday one layer card.

Birthday Card with Sketch N Scrap

Hello! It’s another card share today on Sketch N Scrap! We are celebrating every Friday of the month with cards in honour World Card Making Day.  I created a simple birthday card using some scrap patterned paper. It really is my aim to make cards using scraps, mainly because I love the papers too much to throw away even the most little tiny pieces.

I was inspired by this sketch designed by Mandy on the blog:


My card:

I have a paint splatters stamp (Recollections from Michaels) which is perfect for the card inspiration. I just stamped it with the color (Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe) which matched my patterned papers and cut out  some squares with my papers. Then I added a sentiment in the middle square to highlight my sentiment. Then I cut out the little cameras and pop it up with some foam tape to embellish the card. A really quick and simple card to make.

I seemed to need birthday cards more than any other cards yet I do not make enough of it. So hopefully I can remember to make more of it lol

Polka dot frenzy – card share

I have a card to share today! I decided to go all polka dot frenzy with this card. Polka dot pattern is pretty versatile; suitable for everyone and everything. It is actually really quick and easy to make. It is a Father’s day card! Never be afraid to use pink for masculine cards. Pink fashion in men is extremely popular! 🙂 Well I am sure my dad would not mind it!

I used texture paste with a polka dot background stencil. Then I used different polka dot pattern pattern papers to make banners for the card. I used a 3×4 Project life card for my sentiment. I added alphabet stickers to make my focal sentiment more personal. I inked all the paper edges with Weathered Wood distress ink.

I made my card based on a sketch over at Sketch~N~Scrap. Hop on over their blog for more inspiration.

I am also playing along Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Make it Masculine and Casology: Week #149:Vintage

Here is the inside of the card: I did try to use papers that match the front of the card.
