You're amazing - a CAS snowy card

Today I would like to share with you a CAS card I've made.

I was inspired by the photo at Less Is More challenge blog:

I took the colors of kraft, red and b/w, and also the tied twine.

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

For the main element I used a snowflake die, and I die cut the white cs 3 times, to give some dimension.

A few scored line and a sentiment, and for the final touch I adhered a red sequin to the middle of the snowflake.

The kraft panel was adhered to a red cs basis.

Simple card, yet very elegant, don't you think?

I will give it to a very dear friend, along with a beautiful handmade gift. I think she'll like it.

The shapes were stamped overlapping each other, to create a vertical stripe. I then stamped the sentiment with the Crimson ink (Altenew stamp).

Happy Birthday card in pink, green and silver

One of the winners

I love the color combo of pink and green, in all their different hues, so I decided to play with the current challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches, which asked for these two colors, with the addition of silver:

I stamped the flower and the leaves, and cut the image into a square, and matted with a shimmer silver cs. I adhered it on a white cs panel, which I scored with some lines.

The sentiment was stampes on the same shimmer silver cs and was adhered with foam tape.

A glittery silver enamel dot was adhered to the center of the flower, and two hot pink enamel to the silver sentiment panel. 

After assembling it all, I adhered the panel to the white cs basis.

It also goes for the following challenges:

I love how it turned out. So feminine.

A super CAS card

Happy Saturday crafty friends!

This card is probably THE MOST cas card I've ever made! and I must say - it was very challenging!

I followed the challenge at AAA Challenges: 1 inchie with the optional twist - masculine.

I also used the colors from the current challenge at Color Throwdown, which are navy blue, gold and white:

I find this color combo very elegant, even regal, and these colors are perfect for a masculine card.

Being so so CAS, it also can go for the current challenge at Time Out - simplicity:

I stamped the coffee cup and the 'Hello' with Ranger's archvial ink in cobalt on a white cs, and cut it just a little bit less than an inch.

I then matted it with a shimmer gold cs, sized 1" square. I adhered it to the white cs basis with foam tape, and had to take a deep breathe to say: 'That's it!', and not adding anything else.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Your comments are much appreciated.

Another leafy Birthday Wishes card


Honorable Mention

The rain finaly came to Israel... so it means we're having a little bit of autumn! I love autumn colors, and this card is no exception.

I started with a dark green cs, and die cut in with a stitched woodgrain pattern. The same die I used for the white cs in the middle.

My sentiment was stamped directly on the white cs, with crimson ink.

I matted the white square with a dp in moss/sage color, and die cut along thin leaf from this dp.

I die cut two big leaves, one in crimson and one in yellow. I then adhered the 3 leaves on the white cs, and add a bow with tripple dark green twine.

The whole panel was adhered to a white cs basis.

I would like to enter it to the challenge at The Card Concept:

I was inspired by the colors of green and red, with a hint of yellow, to create my clean and layerd card.

It also goes for the 'Birthday' theme at Addicted to Stamp and More:

Joy, with pine cones

One of the winners

Today I would like to share with you this rather CAS card, made for several challenges:

Time Out Challenges #201 - Simplicity:

Happy Little Stamppers - anything goes with dies:

I used a spotted die cut for the white panel. I adhered a dp strip for the wide strip in the sketch, and a thin stitched ribbon for the thin one.

I die cut the pine cones from a kraft cs, and inked it with distress ink (tea dye). The pine needles were cut with a die cut from a dark green cs, and the other leaves were cut from a sage dp.

I die cut the Joy word from the same dark green cs and adhered it with foam to the panel.

Once everything was in place, I adhered the panel to a green dark cs basis.

Thanks - a recipe for neutrals

One of the FAV 

On one hand, making cards in neutrals colors can be very challenging. On the other hand, these colors make a very elegant combination. And who doesn't love a card in neutrals colors?!

So I took inspiration from the challenge at As You See It challenge blog, whith a recipe for a neutrals card: to use an embossing folder, a ribbon or a twine, a die or a punch, one sentiment - and all that with neutrals:

I chose to work with the neutrals colors white, vanilla and kraft - for my cs, and brown ink for the sentiment.

I followed the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #631:

The banners, the feathers and the tag - where cut with dies. The white stitched banner was embossed using dots embossing folder. 

I tied a bow around all the feathers with a jute twine, which also was used to tie a knot on the tag.

A one sentiment 'thanks' was stamped on the tag, and I adhered it beneath the feathers.

It goes also for the 'thanks' challenges at SimonSays Monday challenge, and SimonSays Wednesday challenge.

A CAS card in pink

 Happy Friday!

CAS card usually means lots of 'white space', but it doesn't have to be only in white color!

As long as you keep your card uncluttered, minimum layers and embellishments - you can use any color you like.

And so I did with this card.

I used the colors from Global Project Design #317, which asked for pink, blue and mint:

The design follows the sketch from CAS Colour & Sketches #445:

I stamped the rose flower in some pink hues and then fusy cut it. The leaves were die cut from a water color paper, that first was sprayed with Lindy's Gang Mad Hatter Mint shimmer mist.

I die cut the stitched and scalloped banner from a blue dp, that has like white light spray on it.

I adhered it to the PINK cs basis, and on it I adhered the flower with the leaves. A few translucent 3-d drops and my card is done!

I'm still not sure for what occasion I'll be using this card - a birthday, an anniversary, a good luck card, etc., so I didn't add any sentiment at the moment.

Thank you for viiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much.

A pile of leaves Thank You card


Happy Friday to all! 

This week, Lynn from The Color Throwdown #668 offered a very striking color combo - rust, brown, blue and gold:

I stamped a pile of leaves in brown, rust and blue, and a small 'thank you' sentiment in brwon. 

I added some gold sequins as embellishments.

The panel was matted with gold shimmer cs, and then I adhered it to a dark blue cs basis.

Leaves are the main focal object of my card, and it's a perfect match to the current challenge at CAS on Friday, which aked for leaves.

It also goes to the two Simonsays Stamp challenge, Monday & Wednesday, where the theme is thanks.

I hope you liked my card and thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your comments very much.
