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 #97

Hello! Today I want to share two cards with you. The first card was inspired by Sketch N Scrap Card Sketch #97 designed by Heather.

SNS 97 May 5th 2017

I created this card:

Floral themed cards for birthday

I embossed the background of the card panel with an embossing folder by Martha Stewart Crafts. It was meant for embossing metal but I used it to emboss paper and made it work with my Cuttlebug.

The flower was stamped from Altenew Majestic Bloom stamp set. I stamped a lot of these flowers from my previous project and had some leftover, so I made cards with it. So I guess it’s a good idea, to stamp a bunch of images and get them all ready when you need them for a project. Then I added the birthday sentiment also from Altenew, the Label Love stamp set. I added some metallic red thread behind the flower image for more interest and texture and finished it off with some clear sequins.

From the first card, I was inspired to create another card since I had another piece of flower image.

I created a wedding card with the flower image. The composition of this card is similar to the first card. I just love how both of these cards turned out. Maybe because they are in my favorite colors – pinks and reds! 🙂
