Addicted To Stamps And More #271...

Hi! The latest challenge is up at the Addicted To Stamps And More challenge and this week is the easiest one of all.


I made a super CAS Christmas card as inspiration. This design is perfect for mass production and also a great stash buster.


I took a light cream shimmer paper and cut it to size. I created the sentiment with the Simply Alphas stamp set by Mudra. This a great alphabet stamp set which is very easy to line up. And the great news is that Mudra Craft Stamps are now available internationally with the launch of their new website. You can check it out here.

stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.I cut the Christmas tree out of scraps of green and brown paper and adhered it to the card panel. The card panel is popped up on some foam tape and attached to the red card base.

I added some star shaped gems to finish the card.

Here is a closer look at the card:


I hope you like my card and are inspired to create something beautiful. Also remember to check out the inspiration by rest of the DT at the ATSM challenge blog.

Love,
Nandini

Busting my stash...

Hi! I love paper, especially handmade paper. Unfortunately I don't seem to use it much. I just end up hoarding it and admiring it from time to time! So I decided to make a dent in my stash inspired by a card by the talented Keeway Tsao who blogs at Kiwi Koncepts. You an see the original card here.


I took a bunch of scraps from my stash, cut them into strips and adhered them onto a piece of scrap paper. I stamped the blooms from the Carnations stamp set by Mudra Craft Stamps on the panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used the Mudra Stamping Mask sheets and they worked very well! The sentiment is from the same set and was heat embossed with Ranger's Gold embossing powder.

I trimmed the panel, matted it with some black paper and mounted it on a kraft card base.

Here is a closer look at the panel.



I really love how beautiful this card turned out!

Here is my card


I started with a piece of white card stock that I die cut with the DCAM Stitched Rectangles die. I inked it lightly with some Artistry distress ink. I used the Script and Honeycomb stamp set from Itsy Bitsy and stamped with the Satin Rose metallic ink by Tsukineko. The flourish was die cut with the Oscar die by Couture Creations and the butterflies were cut with the Floral Wreath die set by Sizzix.

I  hope you like my card and are inspired to create something beautiful. Please do visit the ATSM challenge blog for more inspiration by my talented team mates and also to link your creations to our gallery. Looking forward to viewing beautiful creations.
