Hello lovely people!!

Wishing all of you a very happy and safe Diwali!!!!!!!!!! :) :)

Hope you all are enjoying these festive days with family and friends. What a lovely day Deepti have chosen for my T-Time post....DIWALI!!!'s my favourite festival. :) :)

So.....moving to the post. We all are creating our cards with stamps and fix our stamps on clear acrylic blocks. So I am sharing here how we can make our background for cards with using our blocks. :)
P.S. - As the current challenge is create cards with one stamp set..I have used only one stamp set for my T-Time post too... :)

 All you need is...

  • Acrylic Blocks (different sizes)
  • Distress Inks
  • Water Mister
  • Card stock
  • Black ink
  • Some stamps 
 Here comes lots of pics with captions for easy understanding...

All the things you need....

I have started with smallest block and inked with Aged Mahogany and Worn Lipstick distress inks..

Spray some water with water mister....

Press it equally on your CS...

It looks like this....

If you are not happy with the out it again as I did....

Final look... ;)

Now use another set of distress inks...Tumbled Glass & Peacock Feathers...this time I have used my big Acrylic block...

Place wherever you want and press it.....

I have repeated the small block on the big one...

Here is the card.....I have used my Versafine black ink for all the stamped images. Cut the design and chomped the corners and pasted it on black CS then on white CS again. .embellished it with BT and pearl.

Used this stamp set for making this card..

Made one more card with this block  BG technique....

Hope you like my work and create your own magical BGs coz every time you will get new design and effects..... Thanks for stopping!!

CSSC #8 - Card with STAMPlorations stamps

Hello friends! This is Rahmat. Hope you're doing good and today it's my turn to share my inspiration for One stamp one set challenge aka CSSC #8.

I used STAMPlorations - Trendy feathers to make this card.

     I used a light blue card stock as base, a white panel and sponged the sky and clouds. Then I stamped 3 different feathers onto the card, and the sentiment too.

Its a pretty simple card.

I hope you like my card, and we all catchy girls can't wait to see what you come up with!!
So hop on to your supplies and amaze us now!

HI Girls, This is Jayashree here, Hope you are enjoying our current challenge - One card with one stampset. Here is my card for you as inspiration. I made this card Using Simon Says stamp set. 

Here's a quick tutorial on how I created the text background, 

Step : 1
Align the stamps on paper as shown and take a little bigger size acrylic block press on these stamp so that they get adhere to the acrylic block.

Step : 2
Using Versamark ink, stamp it and heat emboss it using white embossing powder.

Step : 3
Distress the edges using 2 tones, first from  Tumbled Glass and then from Peacock feather to give a tonal variation.

Hope this has inspired you to play along with us.

Blooming Love card

Hi Friends,

Its Shylaa here today to show you some inspiration on our current challenge - One Card, One Stampset.

I have created a flower shaped pattern using the heart stamp with distress inks. Sentiment as stem, flourish as ground. Finally i am done with my card. It was a real fun to create this blooming love card.

Hope you got an idea now, hence pull out your stampset and create a card.

Hello Friends , Its Ramya here... Hope you all are doing good and we have an exciting challenge at CSCC this month. Today its my turn to share my creation with you. 
Actually I dont have any clear stamp set with me and I have'nt tried stamping with clear stamp so far. This is the biggest  advantage of being a DT. I had to come out of my comfort zone and try something new and exciting.  Now have a look at the card that I have created.

 I bought a tim holtz clear stamp set. Since the stamps are best suitable for vintage themed cards I  created the same. 

My stamp set had more stamps than that can be accommodated in a card so I created a small tag too. 

 I started off by taking a white cardstock and applied homemade texture paste over alphabet stencil. Then applied watercolours to get the brown colour. Distressed the edges black ink. I stamped each one on a separate cardstock and glued them to my card. The blooms are handmade.  

I had so much fun creating this card and am very happy with the way the card turned out. So you too have fun by playing with us along CSCC #8 . Stay tuned for more inspiration from our talented catchy girls.
