CAS Cards

Good Morning Everyone !

How are you all doing ? Today I am here to share with you all my inspirational CAS Cards which I have designed for Die cuts and More

I absolutely love and enjoy making cards ( detailed and shaped cards ). Once I got to know that we are doing CAS Cards for this month theme I really had a hard time in making these . I always use to think how simple it is to make CAS Cards .Believe me guys I really had hard time in making these NOT SO SIMPLE CAS CARDS . 

Well what to make , from where to start , how to make , which all stamp can be used to make .. blah blah I was bombarded with so many questions which left me so confused and irritated. After so much hours of thinking and searching.. I managed to find my source of Inspiration which was none other then Neha Bhatt. I really loved her Guest post for Color conception , seriously guys you will enjoy this post for sure and will understand the way to make and design your very own CAS Cards.

Finally here is my interpretation , my CAS Cards ! Have a look


Seriously CAS cards are super fun to make and I had great time exploring my skills and for this I really thank DCAM for giving me this opportunity for stepping out of my comfort zone. I know still there are many flaws and loopholes So what I am still learning :)

Lets hop in for details now ...


For this is card I have simply used a die cut from Kaisercraft . Love these die cuts, and added some sequins.

 

For this card I have used my gorgeous Clearly besotted stamp set and colored it with distress markers . Firstly I have stamped the polka dot stamp with versamark ink and used gold embossing powder and heat set it . Sentiment is from justrite .


And lastly for this card I have used my Martha Stweart butterfly and Kaisercraft stamp set . I have colored the stamped images with distress markers.


Well that was all I hope you have liked my cards . Would love to hear from you .

Love 
Isha 
Have a nice day

My not so vintage Layout !!

Good Evening Everyone !!

How you all doing ? I am literally out of my breath with this freaking hot humid weather.Anyways, Today I am here to share with you all another attempt to scrapbook layout. I actually wanted to try my hands over quilling but duh .. Its not at all my cup of tea. But still going gaga seeing people doing some amazingly fantastic quilled projects, Never mind I will practice more and more and will work hard.

Now coming back to My Layout - I did punch craft yeyyy !! My all time favorite. I have done stamping and loads to distressing to this piece of work. Enough of talks ..its Show time
have a look


I am actually super excited and happy yeeyyyy I made have made these flowers !! The thing which led to complete this layout in making was the pattern paper- Its from DCWV Heirloom Collection . All those people out there who are so in love Vintage must have this one too good.


     I have done loads of stamping on this gorgeous pattern paper. Used different stamps from different brands .

                                   I totally love this marianne die ,all inked and distressed.


Flowers are all handmade these are not mulberry flowers. I have punched ,colored with distress inks , So totally I have done this from the scratch. Yeyy can you see the stamp saying crafting paradise and my name  Loving it. Butterflies are stamped and heat embossed .


By the way I made this layout to gift one of my uncle on his anniversary i have to just add a picture and get it framed . 
Well this was my Layout I hope you all liked . If yes please leave us some love .

Another take on Butterflies !!

Hello Everyone !!

Okay I have to accept that I am obsessed with butterflies. Today I am sharing another card with you all .. Yes with butterflies !!
Have a look.


Talking about the card .. its absolutely a mix and match card . I did these butterflies as an experiment for another my project, and the base card for another . both of them didn't worked well. So I decided to use these two together. Well somehow I am not satisfied with end results .
You cannot do well all the time Right ??


Butterflies are heat embossed and colored with distress inks. Sorry the bad pictures - sentiment says " If nothing ever changed there would be no butterflies".


hope you like it !!

XOXO
