Cutting Edge Blog Hop!

Hello everybody,

Welcome to Cutting Edge Blog Hop hosted by Pretty Pink Posh.

I have two cards for you today. For my first card I have used the Stitched Film Strip Die
Here is my card.

Happy Birthday vertical

I decided to go a clean and simple card this time with lots of white spaces including the use of white Stitched Film die which I have used for texture and added dimension. I used the Spring Blooms stamp set from Wplus9 for colour and impact. I have stamped the leaves directly on the card front, then added the white film strip, then popped the stamped flower die cuts on the top.

Happy Birthday flat

 For some glitter, I have used Happy die cut form Wplus9 die cut from pink glitter paper. I stamped the birthday on a strip of white cardstock which I trimmed making an angle end and added below the Happy die cut. Finally embellished with gorgeous Orchid, Pink Blush and Sparkly Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.  Here is a closeup!

For the second card, I have used the Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Duo 2 rectangular die and the Brushstroke kit from Papertrey Ink. Here is my card.


I have used the colourwash pattern paper from the kit on the background. Then die cut the stitched rectangle from the blue pattern paper with the flower cluster on the left corner. I also fuzzy cut the same flower cluster from another sheet of the same pattern paper and layered it using foam adhesive. I have slightly offset the layered cluster of flowers. Then I stamped the sentiment on the top right corner. I mounted this rectangle on the card front using foam adhesive as well. Finally embellished with Amethyst and Pansy Purple sequins also from Pretty Pink Posh.  Here is another angled shot of the card.

CAS(E) this Sketch #89

Hey dear friends, I have a new sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch challenge for you.
Here it is for you.

This gorgeous sketch is designed by Leigh Penner. Here is my take on the sketch.

Hello card

I have used the new Persian Motif stamp set from Altenew to create my card. I stamped the images in gold for the background. Then I diecut  a rectangle from watercolour paper using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 2 die.  I then heat embossed the same image from Persian Motifs to gold heat emboss on the watercolour paper. I then watercoloured the images using distress inks - Evergreen Bough, Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick. 

Hello card horizontal

I really love the gold, aqua and coral colour combo. I wanted a bit more coral colour so I used Pretty Pink Posh's Tangerine  4mm and 6mm sequins to embellish. The sentiment is from Quilled Elegance stamp set from Altenew. Hope my card inspires you to participate in CAS(E) this Sketch challenge. Here is a closeup.
