{Spotlight Project} Create Elegant Cards Using Mixed Media Stamps with Deepti!

Hello friends! Deepti here and welcome to another spotlight feature. Though my experience and knowledge in mixed media is limited, I am always attracted towards these stamps and look for ways in which I can use them on CAS cards, before I actually start to use them for mixed media projects... Perhaps someday I will get there ;) So for this spotlight I have used the stamps as a part of my CAS elegant designs :)

Here's the look...

For these cards I first decided the layout. I wanted to use a combo of white and grey card stock. So I cut those in different proportions to fit on my card base as seen below.

I then decided which of the two stamps I will use for the respective layout and embossed those in gold to create a gold brushstroke edge.

 I my second layout I wanted to emboss on both white and grey card stock. To do that I first adhered these pieces temporarily on grid paper and stamped with mixed media stamp once and then rotating it the second time to make a square.

In my next step I die cut the birds from patterned paper and also embossed the floral stamp on vellum in white. I then fussy cut the piece and divided it into two to use on both cards.

Finally, I put all the elements together and finished embellishing with some gold twine and heart pin. Oh! and to add to the elegance I also scored the white panels of these cards :)

Here are the photos of each card :)

That finishes my spotlight feature :) I hope you enjoyed it and will give this a try. Happy paper crafting!
