Coffee and Autumn!

Hello Sweet Friends! :)

I know..I know..the whole blog land is shouting for coffee and autumn leaves... what a great combination indeed! :D

This is what I ended up doing.. :)

I have stamped the background using STAMPlorations- Retro Mod Shapes. I have used autumn colors and leaves. The coffee cup  is sketched and fussy cut on American Craft chevron patterned paper. The sentiment is stamped using color box white pigment ink on a black card stock.

Hope you like my cofffee card?

Dreamy Background

Heyyaaaa Lovely Crafters!! :)

I am bringing before you the card I made yesterday..

That's the dreamy background I am talking about.. I sprinkled water on the stamp before stamping on the card base to make that colorful background.. I used distress ink wild honey, mowed lawn, salty ocean, seedless preserves and worn lipstick. For the vellum flower I have used Fiskars - Scratch from petals stamp set. Heat embossing with Ranger's white embossing powder and colored the back side using worn lipstick DI.

For the sentiment, I have used STAMPlorations - Hashtag Authentic stamp. And for the sparkle & shine, I used silver gel over the sentiment and also on the background. Here is a close-up with the shining captured successfully!(after several attempts..phew! ) Also, added a few sequins over the card.. I kept it simple as I didn't want my CAS card to be too shiny... :)

I am entering this card for TIME OUT Challenges - inspired by the beautiful card of TRACEY as shown below

Also for Lulupu Challenge - Sparkle & Shine

Autumn in pieces :)

Hello Dear Crafters! :)

I have come up with a CAS fall card.. 

I have made this autumn card using STAMPlorations-Trendy Leaves stamp set and distress ink - fire brick, wild honey and mowed lawn. I used repeated stamping for the sentiment. 
The background is sponged and I sprinted a few drops of water and let it dry. I fussy cut of the stamped leaves and adhered them over the card base. That's paper piecing - one of the favorite technqiues! :)
