shabby chic, stamping and coloring!!

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a good day! I have three cards to share with you today…

Here’s the first one… Made this last night. After making this card, I accepted the fact that I can’t make cards with many layers. Even when I make a shabby chic card, I can only include a single layer! :-p

I made this based on colours at IBSIC. I’m in love with the pastels! The sentiment is from IBS stamp set.

Itsy bitsy – ‘Pretty with P’ challenge. I have used patterned paper, pink, pearls and pins (pearl head pins) (4 Ps! :))

Here is IBSIC inspiration picture

The second card is also based onΒ IBSIC challenge colours… I used summer flowers stamp set from IBS store to make the BG. This looks different from all the other cards I made till now, doesn’t it? Everything is colored with water color pencils. After seeing how beautifully Sanketi uses water colors, I too wanted to try once…but not like her. I used water color pencils. Do visit her beautiful blog. She makes stunning cards. Almost all of them are CAS!

I made the last card just like that!! Wanted to play with IBS stamp sets I recently bought! πŸ™‚ Aren’t those strawberries adorable? πŸ™‚

I wish to link this up at Lulupu- Fancy me!Β I fancy CAS style with stamping and fussy cutting! The mason jar is stamped and fussy cut, so are the strawberries.:)

  1. Sindhu all three of your cards are just beautiful:) ..I especially loved the second card with the stamping and coloring ..such a pretty design and color on that:) ..and the jar with strawberry is so adorable them all !!


  2. Goosebumps, I tell ya! I have goosebumps, looking at each card. I love when creations make me do that. πŸ™‚ It's a sign that I truly love what I'm seeing.

    I chuckled when you said you just cannot make a card with many layers. You sound just like me. πŸ˜‰ Each of these cards is so different, and each one is awesome. Love the big feminine flowers on the top one, the way you used the flower set on the second one (and colored in between leaves and blossoms), and the sweet jar of strawberries on the last one. You are inspirational, my dear!

    (and thanks again for linking up with us at IBS!)
