CAS cards - Part 3

Finally here with my last 4 CAS cards from the CAS card swap at Swap Central.

 This is perhaps my most favorite card, since I ended up CASEing myself. I made around 15 of these cards for Rakhi and to send to some special people!  ;)
The flower and sentiments are Papertrey ink. Colored with FC Bi colors, and the embossing folder is from Craft Concepts, which I picked from my local craft store!! (hehe!! S don't be can come anytime to my LOCAL craft store!!)

 I loved creating the background so much, that nothing I put in the front seemed okay. Its made from woodgrain paper cut and distressed and re-glued such that it looks like beams.
The banner and sentiment is Simon says stamp.
The butterfly- a cheery lynn die.

 A very simple card...a faux polariod frame and a CASE of Nichole Heady's card using the same stamp. Stamps and sentiment are papertrey ink.

Love love love this absolute CAS favorite. Pattern paper is from papermania-newsprint collection.
Sentiment and "Absolutely: Die is from Simon says stamp.
For such bold sentiments, I love using my Archival ink from Ranger. Crisp and bold as it should be!!

 Coming soon... a video on Lindy stamp gang!!

CAS Cards Swap | Part 2

Hello...Today I'm sharing the next installment of my CAS cards from the Swap at Swap Central India.

This first one is a simple stamping!! This stamp was lying in my vault for the better part of 3 months! Finally had to ink it up and use it!
Hero arts Stamp, with an Itsy bitsy embossing folder in the BG. And some faux stitching.

And of course butterflies!!

This second card uses PTI stamp sets...Say it in Style (the thank you sentiment) and the flower and bottom sentiment are from Friend's til the end set.
Inks used are Memento inks.

This is another of my Pinterest inspired cards...I wanted some silver...since I had no silver...I went for pale grey...And those banner dies are awesome!! Really really love it!

So those are 3 more of my CAS card swap...Will share the last four soon!!
Have a great weekend everyone!

CAS Cards Part 1

Heylo! I'm here to share a few of the 10 cards I made for Swap Central's CAS Cards Swap. I'll be sharing just 2-3 cards I can explain the process and make sure the post doesn't go way long! :)

This is a Pinterest inspired card...I had to think of 10 cards in 10 days, (since my swap partner was in India for just a few days!) and my brain never works  that I had to turn to Pinterest for base ideas...and that is where I found the butterfly in square idea.
Had a hard time executing it, simply coz my punch is no longer drives me nuts to punch one butterfly!

This card uses - Couture Creations embossing folder, from the Serenity collection - Ambrosia..
Square Scalloped die from Couture Creations, and butterfly punch from MS.
Sentiment from PTI.
The scalloped squares are mounted on foam pop up dots for dimension.

This is Card 2 with Pattern paper use!

A very simple card, from one of the techniques taught in Pattern Play class. The PP is Basic Grey figgy pudding...and the flower is Rose creations die. 
Some glitter and some pearls in the center.
The banner die and the sentiment on it are from the Tilted Banner die and greeting set from Simon says stamp. (Creativita Store)

Card 3 uses two of the stamp sets I wanted for a very long time...The musical background and the Delicate Blossoms. (Both from Crafter's Corner)

I've loved this set ever since I saw it....and finally after waiting for eons, bought it. But got to use it only after 2 months....And I've colored this using my Faber Castell Bi-colors with the technique I show in this video.
There isn't much to share about this card...its just simple stamping, and oh yes, the blooms are pieced.

 I colored them again separately on another CS and then cut and pasted them on this card.

 And just a little bit of glitter for the centre of the flowers.

Do let me know if there is any info you need...if not, just say hello in the comments! :)
See you soon with another set of CAS Cards.
