Just a Note
by Isha Gupta

Hello and Welcome! It's Isha with you today. Spring is just round the corner and I can't help but think of all the pretty flowers, Easter and crisp air :) So, I decided to use some of the new spring theme products to create this spring theme card.

I started by creating the mat layer for my card, for this I die-cut a watercolor paper using Wrapped Stitch Frames die. I used the inside rectangle piece of it. I also die-cut a blue panel using the same die to use the frame.

For the background, I  used distress ink and smooshing technique to the watercolor panel and let it dry. I then die-cut the Woven basket (Love the embossed details), colored it using various copic markers. I adhered this to the watercolor panel. 

Next, I die-cut the Bunny and colored him using copic markers. I then die-cut the Devonshire Wreath and snipped parts of it to use as flowers and leaves. I colored these using copics and adhered everything onto the panel. I then adhered this watercolor panel to the cardbase and stamped the sentiment. 

Finally, I adhered the frame to the card using 3d foam adhesive. To finiah, I added some Nuvo drops in the flower centers and the bunny's eyes and nose.

Here is a look at the embossed effect in close-up

Just a Note
by Isha Gupta

Hello and Welcome! It's Isha with you today. Weather has started to change a bit and some days we have some sunlight and some days are cool. Now I am longing for spring, which means FLOWERS :) The new dies have so many various florals in it and they are awesome. 

Today, I decided to use my dies as guide for this watercolor card.

I started by simply embossing the watercolor paper using the die, instead of cutting it. This gave a perfect impression and allowed me to watercolor using the Zig clean color real brush markers.  The embossed effect gives beautiful texture after we add watercolor to it. It's really cool in real life.

Once the panel was dry, I adhered it to the colored cardbase. I then stamped and embossed the sentiment onto a black scrap. I then, attached the sentiment to the card using 3D foam squares.

Here is a look at the embossed effect in close-up

 To create this card, I cut a mat layer using white cardstock and sponged some distress inks to create the sky background. I then flicked some water and also white ink for added dimension.

I then die-cut the "Evergreen Landscape" onto white cardstock and applied some wink of stella clear glitter for subtle shine. Now, I adhered this piece to the background mat layer.

I then die-cut the hill and stamped sentiment onto it. I then adhered it to the mat layer using 3D foam.

Now to the fun part. I die-cut the cute "Build a Snowman" die onto white cardstock, colored the hat, eyes, buttons, hands, nose and the scarf using copic markers. I then applied some glossy accent and added two kinds of glitters to the hat rim and pompom. Now I adhered these pieces to create the snowman and adhered it to the card using 3D foam.

Hope you enjoyed this card. Have a wonderful crafty day!

Let It Snow
by Isha Gupta

Hello and Welcome! It's Isha with you today. Last week we had our first snow of the season and the new "Batavia Snowbreeze" die, totally set me in the mood for this glittery, yet soft kind of card. Just like snow :)

Isha_card6th

To create this card, I cut a mat layer using white cardstock and the die-cut the "Batavia Snowbreeze" Die. I then sponged some distress inks to the edges and added tiny rounds. To add these tiny round snow, I die-cut the same die onto a piece of another cardstock and used the tiny circles as my stencil.

I then took a scrap piece of cardstock, applied versamark ink to it and added 3 colors of glitter embossing powders. I used this piece behind the mat layer. I then die-cut the words "Let It Snow" using the same DIY glitter paper. Here is a close-up to see all the glitter.

Merry Christmas
by Isha Gupta

Hello and Welcome! It's Isha with you today. Today is yet another Christmas card using the adorable Deer and Santa images. I can't seem to stop using them as they are simply ADORABLE :)

IMG_5739a_WM

To create this card, I started with die-cutting some hills using the "Stitched Curves" dies. I then sponged some blue ink to the top parts of it and adhered them from sides and lower edge onto a white mat layer.

I then die-cut some pine trees using the Stitched Circle Trees dies and colored them using copic markers.

Then I stamped all the images, colored them using copic markers and die-cut them using the coordinating dies.

Finally stamp the sentiment and assemble everything together. 

To finish I added some stickles for the glittery effect.

Hope you enjoyed this card. Have a wonderful crafty day!

Merry Christmas
by Isha Gupta

Hello and Welcome! It's Isha with you today. Today, I mixed and matched lots of stamps and dies to create my winter scene. I really like how everything co-ordinates so well.

IMG_5673a_wm

To create this card, I die-cut the hill and added a little color using peerless watercolor. I then cut a mat layer and created a wash for the sky using peerless watercolor. I then die-cut 3 Piccolo snowflakes using white cardstock.

Now, I stamped a couple of images using Versafine onyx black ink and colored them using watercolors. Once dry I die-cut these images using the coordinating dies. I then assembled the card as per the photo and flicked some white paint on it. Finally, I added a bit of glitter to create snow.

The glitter is more visible in the close-up.

Merry Christmas
by Isha Gupta

Hello and Welcome! It's Isha with you today. I created this fun Christmas card using so many different snowflakes dies. Isn't it wonderful how we can mix and match them.

IMG_5587a_wm

To create this card, I first created a white top fold card base. Then I cut a mat layer and sponged various distress inks onto it. Now I flicked some water and gold mist onto it and let this piece dry. Meanwhile, I cut the Piccolo snowflakes and adhered them to the sponged panel. I then sponged these snowflakes using a very light pressure.

I then die-cut the Purslane snowflake outline and sponged it using the same colors of distress inks. I then die-cut the Purslane snowflake using gold foil cardstock. I adhered the snowflakes together. Love this effect.

IMG_5597a_wm

Now I stamped the sentiment using gold embossing powder. Once everything was ready, I tied the jute twine to my panel and adhered it to the cardbase. I then adhered the snowflake and the sentiment. To finish I added some sequins.

Hope you enjoyed this card. Have a wonderful crafty day!

Let It Snow
by Isha Gupta

Hello and Welcome! It's Isha here today, once again, I am sharing a fun CAS Christmas card which is easy to mass produce. There are so many cards to make and so little time :) I am so happy Memory Box stamps and dies are perfect to create those quick cards too.

IMG_5503a_wm

To create this card I took a red top folding card. I then cut a white mat layer. I die-cut the "Leafy Ring" from this panel. Remember to keep the leaves as we will color them using copic markers. I then die-cut a circle in the center.

I created a blue wash onto a watercolor piece, sprayed it with frost shimmer spray and adhered the white mat layer  onto it. I then adhered the leaves back to it. It simply fits like a puzzle :)

I then added some Nuvo Drops to some of the circles to create berries. I left some of the circles empty as it looks like snow to me.

IMG_5509a_wm

Now I die-cut the words "let it snow" twice, once using silver and 2nd. using black cardstock. I adhered the black word under the silver to create shadow effect. Adhere the sentiment to the mat layer and adhere this layer to the cardbase using 3D foam.

 Hope you enjoyed my project and got inspired to create your Christmas cards. Thanks for stopping by

Warm Wishes
by Isha Gupta

Hello and Welcome! It's Isha here today, sharing a fun CAS Christmas card which is easy to mass produce. I can't resist these cute and adorable dies from our winter release. I really like how it turned out. Added bonus, once we have the Deco Trees cut out from three different cardstock, we can make 3 cards :)

Isha_wm

To start, I die-cut the white mat layer using the "Deco Trees" die. I then die-cut the same using 3 colors of glitter paper. I then die-cut the Warm Winter Wishes sentiment using red and clear glitter cardstock and stacked them together, making sure the red peeks through a little.

I then die-cut a scalloped stitch trimming and adhered it to the white mat layer. 

Now it's time to put pieces to the puzzle. I adhered craft foam to the back side of my white layer and added pieces of deco tree to the panel. I randomly picked the colors. I then adhered the sentiment and adhered this panel to the red cardbase.

Hello and Welcome! September is almost over and before we know it, it will be time to post the Christmas cards. I am always last minute so this year I decided to start sooner :) I can't resist these cute and adorable images from our winter release.

I decided to use the cute and adorable snowman and some light bulbs to decorate my scene.

IMG_5219a_wm

I started with die-cutting the Timberland Collage die onto white cardstock. Then I sponged some pink shaded of distress inks to another piece of white cardstock. Once I had it to my liking, I flicked some silver and gold paints onto it. I then stamped the snowman and the lights, colored them with Copic markers. I then die-cut them using the co-ordinating dies. I used some 3D foam behind the collage die panel and adhered it to the inked panel. Then I adhered this panel to the cardbase.
