CASE This Sketch #235

Hello, there
Today I'm sharing some cards I made using Simon Says Stamp's August Card Kit.

I've been a little bit busy since the early this month as I had to make several cards for guest designing here and there. All were great experience to me and I really enjoyed the whole process . Those cards will be posted in September.

So, I finally had some free time today,  I took out Simon Says Stamps' card kit. The SSS kit is always so wonderful that it makes your cardmaking easy and speedy!
Thanks to the kit, I could make 8 cards at one sitting today.
Each paper sheet, stamp, and stickers were just too pretty, I couldn't stop playing. 


First, I'm showing a card for entry into the current Case This Sketch #235.


This is my take on the sketch .


All the stripes and hearts patterns are stamped images from SSS Card Kit using hybrid inks . 



I also added various colors of Nuvo Jewel drops . 




Making patterned papers using stamps was so fun to do. 




Here, I'm showing other cards I made from SSS card kit. 




I'm also entering three cards below to the current SSS Flickr Challenge #78 where the theme is "Stripes and/or Dots" .







My craft room corner this afternoon....





Thanks for reading this post.
I hope you enjoyed it.

Less is More #341 Guest Design - Wishing harvest blessing

Hello, there!
 I'm so honored to be guest designing at Less is More #341 this week, as I was a winner at previous Less is More challenge (#336&337)

The theme for this week is "Vehicle" . 
Since this is the 2nd week of the month, I needed to make a one layer card as per the challenge monthly rotation schedule. 
How exciting to make a one layer card again! 

Click the image below to link to the challenge post.



In the previous challenge, I made a one layer card using pencil coloring, so this time I wanted use copic markers, which are my most favorite coloring media, I'm not any special on them though. 

So, here is my card.







Since autumn is coming around, I decided to make an autumn or harvest themed card using vehicle. 
Among my stamps stash, Little Pickup from Honey Bee Stamps looked perfect for the purpose.




I cut a A2 sized white card base from a copic friendly paper, then stamped the images using memento black ink, then colored them with copic markers.
After coloring was done, I stamped the sentiment from Harvest Mouse by My Favorite Things using Versafine black ink.

Copic markers I used are :
Car : E59, R39, R29, R27, C3,C5,C7, BG000
Ground : YR21, YR23, YR24, YR27, E59
Pumpkins : YR07, YR04, Y17

Thanks for reading this post.
I hope you enjoyed it. 

Thank you for inviting me as a guest designer, Less is More Team.
It was my great honor to be working with you, so much talented ladies.
