Cards (Guest Post from Isha Gupta)

Hello everyone! Isha here sharing my 3rd. post as guest designer for January. Today, I have 2 cards for you using the wonderful products from eclectic Paperie. I made these cards, which are totally different from each other.

For my first card, I want to tell you that you can create CAS cards using stencils. You don't only have to use the stencil for mix media or with spray mists only. You can use them as mask and sponge the inks for a wonderful soft feel.

So, I started with sponging the solid poppy stencil. I inked it using 2 green, red and orange Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko Memento inks. I then put the outline only stencil and sponged using the dark ink. It gives a subtle definition to the image. To finish the center panel, I inked around the edges using Teal Zeal Memento ink. To finish, I just put some Delicata gold glitz ink and Memento Love Letter ink onto the acrylic block, added a bit of water and flicked.


For my 2nd. card, I went to no stamping again. It's fun to take different elements from the pattern paper itself. I used the Simple Stories Say Cheese collection. I used some Memento inks to edge the small tickets. I then added some washi tape and black flicks. Now this flair is from Fancy Pants Timbergrove, which gives this card an instant pop. Finally a touch of Glossy Accents on the heart on MAGIC :)


Hope you enjoy creating!

The stenciled flowers are amazing. I looked it up, thinking it had to be a stamp. Lovely colors. Thanks for sharing.
