Hello Dear Readers,

I figured out that CAS is really not my style. It actually really hard for me to keep it clean and simple. I want to add things to card. So I am trying to get better at CAS cards.

Here is my another attempt:

I used a mark to create the background pattern. I just JustRite stamps. I have colored the stamp. I also wanted to different kind of banner so I used one of vellum like paper, embossed it with the sentiment. Added some pearls because I thought it was too plain. And its done.

I am not sure if I like this card too much. What are your thoughts? Please let me know how I can improve. :)

Thank you

Simple Dots Modified

Hello dear Bloogers,

I decided to try different way of playing with sketch.
Here is how the card is made:

I have used JustRite poppies set to do the flower. I used bleaching technique to do the flower. If you wondering what it is, here is tutorial.

 I know poppies suppose to be red but I really wasn't feeling red color. I used distress markers to color it.
I want to give credit to JustRite stamp design team. They make coloring sooo simple, just follow the guide and use the lines on the stamp. I think this every time I color their stamps. Great Job!!!!!!

I used Cherry Lynn dies to cut the image our and create a frame. On the side note, I noticed that a lot of Cherry Lynn dies are used to create these amazing complicated cards. I decided to keep it simple.

I used Tim Holtz for background circles/ dots. It seems that my theme this days yellow and blue. I added peals using Viva pearl pen. I really love this pen it just creates perfect round pearl, unlike Tim Holtz pearls. With Tim Holtz  ones I really have to play around to create a round pearl.

Simple Circle


I was trying to work with the sketch and for some reason it just looked incomplete. So I decided to change it to circle shape card and it turned out perfect.

Here is how the card is made.

I used circle die to create the share. I cut out next size smaller in cream cardstock. I used JustRite "Seeds of Summer".   I stamped flower 3 times and cut out and layered to create a 3D effect. I colored it with inktense pencils.  I used the same stamp to create background, added my fav faux stitching. It is done.
I think this shape is the best for this sketch. Well at least I like it the best this way. What do you think?

Simple Flipped

Hello Dear Bloggers,

I am so happy to see messages from you. I miss you too guys :)

I am making this card for JustRite challenge using the sketch. I decided to flip the sketch

So here is how the card was created:

This card was simple and easy. I used Anna Griffin embossing folder. I really like her designs. Used JustRite stamps for the message and little banner. I should mentioned all the stamps came from the same set of  "Live, Love, Laugh, ". I didn't pay attention before but this set has a lot of little decorative stamps that  are just awesome.  Added my new fav faux stiching and its done.

On the side note, Spellbinders have new dies... I swear I am addicted to them. My DH tells me that I will go broke if I will try to buy them all and that I am not using a lot of them anyways. So to prove to him that I actually use them for the next few cards I will be using as many of those as possible.

Sometimes I am just lazy to get out my cuttlebug or fiskars to die cut. Ohh and my crafting table looks like a tornado went through it.
