I love you card

I was inspired by the flowers, the b/w strips and some of the colors, to make this clean and layered card.

A CAS birthday card for a teenager

 My son needed a birthday card for one of his friends. He specifically said it MUST be simple, no flowers or anything even remotly feminine!

Well, luckily there are web challenges to help a mom meet the criteria ...LOL

Since I was working on a card (HERE) for the current challenge at The Color Throwdown, I continued with the same colors, this time with more bold hues.

CAS Colours & Sketches have a very CAS sketch - it's all about the sentiment:

The Male Room's challenge is 'for a teenager':

I die cut the 'Happy' from yellow and grey cardstocks, and adhered them with a slight shaddow. I then die cut the birthday, actually two dies - background in blueish pp, and the word in green cs.

No embellishments, right?! I punched small stars from the paper I used before, and my card is done.

And my son? He said: "It's okay"...., and off he went to the birthday party...

Plants in pots cas birthday card

I really loved the colors of the current challenge at The Color Throwdown

I went on a more subtle hues of these colors.
I followed the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

It also goes for the 'anything goes' challenge at Seize the Birthday :

I die cut a circle aperture in the white cs panel, and I stamped beneth on the white cs basis with a woodgrain stamp in grey.

I stamped the pots in yellow and die cut them, and die cut the plants from a green cs. I cut two thin strips in blue for the 'shelves, and adhered the pots with the plants with foam dots.

I added a very thin strip on the left side of the panel and adhered it to the basis.

I stamped the sentiment with blue ink, die cut along it and adhered it again with foam dots for some dimention.

Inside the card I adhered more stamped and die cut images:

An elegant birthday card

 The current challenge at Color Throwdown brings a very elegant combination - white, black and gold/silver:

This card was made only with dies. I used the spiral die with gold cardstock, and again with a black one. The gold die cut was matted with the black one, in a way that creates kind of a shaddow. 

The same wad done with the 'happy birthday' die, only this time I die cut the sentiment 3 times in gold, and matted it with one layer of the black one.

I added 3 gold sequins for more sparkle, and it also goes for the 'sparkle' challenge at The Paper Players:

The 3rd challenge I would like to enter this card is from Inspire.Create.challenges, with the theme of  'Birthday':

It was brought to my attention, by a virtual friend, that it can also go for the January challenge at Archi-Scraps:
The color combo, along with the motif on the door, wouldn't you say it fits?

Happy Birthday, with a glass of martini, please

Happy New Year to all! may 2022 be a year of health and returning to normal life, without Covid-19 around...

Somehow, I never have enough masculine birthday cards, and I usually find out about it the last minute I really need one!

So to avoid shortage, I decided to make a nice supply of masculine birthday cards.

I went on a cool palette of colors, wintery one, and to cool it even further more - I added a glass of martini... :), isn't that cool?

This martini stamp is from a very old stamp set I have, I even don't remember since when, but I never used the martini one, so it's kind of a new one.

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges:

Just Us Girls - beverage:

Global Design Project - celebration:

Time Out challenges - new.

A monochromatic Happy Birthday card, in green


A good way to keep your card CAS, is making it monochromatic, and one layerd.

For this card I used only one stamp and one ink pad, and yet I was able to create a scene, with depth and an angle.

To do so, I stamped the tree stamp in diagonal, once with the stamp full of ink, and right again without loading more ink. This way not only I have trees 'far away in the back', but also in an angle, as if there's a small hill.

The whole stmamping was on one layer white panel, and then I adhered it to a green cs basis.

It can make a great masculine birthday card, don't you think?

I would like to enter it for the 'Anything Goes' challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches;

'Celebration' challenge at Global Design Project:

And the 'New' challenge at TimeOut challenge, a
s this tree stamp is a new one for me.

Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate your comments very much and wish you a very happy NEW year!

Another dream card with flowers - Follow Your Dreams

When I made THIS card, I stamped and die cut more elements than I used, so with what was left, I made another card, same flowers and leaves, same colors and same theme of 'Dream', but a different design and a different message - Follow Your Dreams.

Again I would like to enter it to the mini challenge at More Than Words, to use the word Dream on a card, tag or ATC:

It also goes to the 'Anything Goes' challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Best Day Ever! - a cas card


Another CAS and monochromatic card, this time brown shades.

I was inspired by the color combination at Inspire Create Challenges:

I don't have the exact colors, so I dived into my stash and looked for colors as much as possible close to these colors.

The flower background in dark brown, and the flower from the same cs as the casis - a grayish beige.

I stamped the sentiment in caramel color,and added some glittery enamel dots in a matching color.

I hope it qualifies for the challenge. What do you think?

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

Happy Holidays!
