Team Chic n’ Scratch first Blog Hop

I am participating in the first Blog Hop, first time a Team Chic n’ Scratch Blog Hop, the first time I am using the Artistic Etchings and have first time tried the vintage background technique. This makes it a 4 times first time attempt. Hope you guys like what I have done.

Ashlee my side line from Team Chic n’ Scratch had this brilliant idea of doing a Blog Hop, Ashlee Thank you, you are simply awesome and superb, finally most of us did participate in the Blog Hop some early some late as most of us are first time Blog Hoppers.

The card that I have made is a wonderful technique that I have seen on a lot of video’s on You Tube. The background was created on Very vanilla and sponging the background using circular motion – the colors used are Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard and Close to Cocoa. Then I took the second impression of the medallion from the Artistic Etchings. Later using Chocolate Chip I stamped the Eifel tower, Text.

The card has a vintage appeal, I cut out a stamped crown and used rhinestone brad to add the bling. A strip of Choco Chip with an impression with Versa Mark and rhinestone brads breaks the uniformity of the background and adds additional dimension to the card.

Kimono Card - Simple yet elegant

This is an out of turn post 'Masculine Monday' will return soon...

Here is a simple yet elegant card that can be used for any occasion.

The kimono is the traditional clothing of Japan. There are many different types of kimono worn by men, women, and children. The cut, color, fabric, and decorations of a kimono may vary according to the sex, age, and marital status of the wearer, the season of the year, and the occasion for which the kimono is worn.

The Kimono Card is a simple adaptation of this traditional outfit and can be decorated and customized for the required occasion, be it a Birthday card, Thank You Card or Miss You Card. By changing the paper, colour, it can be customized to any occasion.

Enjoy the Kimono Card

A Wonderful friend...

Wishing all my blog readers a very 'Happy New Year 2016'. I hope you have the most wonderful year full of health, happiness, success and may God Bless you all with his choicest blessings.

To kick start the year I have made these cards for some wonderful friends that I have met on this crafty journey over the last one year.

 I have used the emboss resist technique to create the focal panel. I have used White, Silver and Black embossing powder to create the focal image. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.

The size of the cards is 4 x 5 1/2 inches and the focal panel is 3 x 5 1/2 inches. I have lined the sides with Gold Metallic paper and Silver metallic paper. For the sentiment i have used Vellum and embossed the sentiment using my Ranger Heat Tool.

 These two card are embossed using Ranger White Embossing powder and used Tim Holtz distress inks to create the background - Picked Rasberries & Seedless Preserve and Mustard Seed & Spiced Marmalade.

 These two card are …
