CAS Card - Diamond Pattern

Hi Guys,

How are you all doing?? It is monsoon here and its been pouring since past few days! It is wonderful to be at home and craft. So I am here with a simple and quick CAS card.
This is an A2 size, side folding card. I have die cut the card front with stitched rectangle die. I used the diamond pattern stamp and heat embossed it on the card front with silver embossing powder. Then I coloured the diamonds with zig markers with pale pink, sky blue and navy blue colours. Then I die cut the sentiment in black and glued it to the card front. And finished the card with some silver sequins. I have die cut a grey pattern paper with stitched rectangle die and stuck it to the card base and then pasted the card front on this pattern paper die cut.
Supplies are listed at the end.
Hope you like the card. Comments and suggestions are welcome!

You make me smile

Hello Friends,

I am here with another card. I just got my first ever background stamp. Have lots to try with this one and this is the first card I came up with. This is a A2 size card.
I stamped and heat embossed the front panel of the card with white embossing powder. I used the emboss resist technique to blend the distress inks over the embossing  to colour the card front. I also stamped and heat embossed some images. I coloured these images with the zig markers and added some glitter with a glitter pen. Then I die cut a panel and stuck the background image onto it, arranged the flowers on the card front and popped up the sentiment with the foam tape. Finished the card by sticking it to the card base with white glue and topping it with some sequins to add interest to the card.
Hope you like the card. Supplies used for this card are listed at the end.

Hello Lovely People,

I am here today with another card that I made for a friend's birthday, and yes... its the Bokeh Effect again! I just love how this effect makes the simple background so interesting!!
This is a A2 size card. I spread some clear water on the card panel. Then I used the distress inks to give it a water colour effect...just dropped the inks on top of the water and let them blend. I die cut the front panel with stitched rectangle die. I stamped 2 flowers and coloured them with Zig water colour markers (Yayyy!!! my first card with my new possession, the Zig Clean Real Brush Markers). Placed these flowers diagonally opposite in 2 corners.
I also die cut a piece of vellum with the stitched rectangle on the outside and with a oval die at the center. Then I die cut the sentiment Celebrate with a white glitter foam and placed it at the center of the card. I love how vibrant this card looks and the vellum provides some background to the flowers to show off their vibrancy! Then I arranged all the elements and pasted the card front on the card base with white glue. Added a few sequins to finish the card.
Supplies are listed at the end. Do leave your comments. Thank You!
