CAS or White Space

First of all a very warm welcome to my new followers (and thanks to Di at Pixie's Crafty Workshop for the shout out) Marit, Viv, Liz, Alexis,Shaz in Oz and Bonnie.
I hope you all enjoy visiting.

Today's card is very cas! I made a template, so that I could sponge the background with 2 colours of DI. I then stamped the wonderful birds from Stampin Up Wetlands set which a friend lent me (Thanks Carol) The message is also from the same set. I would like to enter this at Paper Artsy for White Space (2nd entry) and also a 2nd entry at Casplorations.

Today, I have been 'caseing' the lovely card by Donna Mikasa over at Casplorations and this is my attempt.
I used a stamp set by Hot off the press, stamping the soild feather first in various colours, then over stamping with the detailed stamp. The splats are from a Paper Artsy set.The words are stamped on a snippet of black and embossed with white detail ep. I hope you like it, I thought it was a lovely design.

Thank you

My card today follows the sketch from Stamplorations. I scored 2 diagonal lines and stamped the message between them, filling in the spaces as though it was a continuous line. Both the word and the leaf stamps are from WOW, and stamped with bundled sage DI The splatters are from Paper Artsy Hotpix HPXT01, and stamped with evergreen bough DI.

My card is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, using Penny Black's 'Constellations'.
The centre was cut out and coloured with Sakura Jelly Roll Glaze pens.
The message is from a set by Paperbabe.
I then raised the centre piece on foam.

I'm back!

Sorry I have been missing for such a long time, but now I am back and getting into card making again.
A friend is turning 65 in a few weeks time, so I have made this card for her. I have used a template from  Cardmaking Paradise (link is on my sidebar) and cut it out with my Cameo.
I used a Penny Black background stamp all over the front, using Mermaid Lagoon DI. I also sponged the edges with the same ink. I added some flowers and a corner flourish cut from snippets for decoration.
