This is my last project as a DT member for Itsy Bitsy 2019.
Let’s move on to today’s project…
I have several CAS cards for you today featuring Chalk Paints!
CAS stands for Clean and Simple cards. You can make all of these cards in a short time!
For the 1st card :
I used several colors of Chalk Paints. Do let me know in the comments below if you would like to know the names of each!
I used the paints with a flat brush in a swiping motion and then let them dry.
On this panel, I stamped the ‘Flowerful Gratitude’ stamp set with black ink.
Then I foam mounted the panel on a white card base and stamped a sentiment. I also rounded the corners for added interest. And my card is complete!
Now lets move to the next cards –
Both the cards are created from a single panel.
I did the wet on wet watercolor technique. It entails first giving a wash of water on the card panel and then coming in with the colour of your choice. I used Deep Sea Blue and Marsh Green chalk paints.
I let the colour flow on its own.
After drying the panel completely, I die cut the leaf from Fern forest dieset by Little Birdie.
You get two cards out of this. I adhered the negative panel on an A2 card base and stamped the sentiment.
I also created some splatters and added Little Birdie pearl drops.
I then swiped three stripes of chalk paint Marsh Green on a white card panel. And then glued the positive leaf diecut on it and stamped the sentiment.
*To match the colour of the diecut, I painted the borders of the card base with same Deep Sea Blue chalk paint*
Moving on to the last 2 cards.
I used the net stencil with Sailing Sky chalk paint on a white card base.
After I lifted the stencil, I immediately pressed the other side of it on another white card panel.
So you get 2 cards out of this one too!
I stamped the ‘Flowery wishes’ stamp on the stenciled image.
After repeatedly stamping the sentiment, I glued the panel on a black A2 card base.
I colored another white card panel with Charcoal chalk paint. And then diecut that panel twice with the same leaf die.
I adhered these 2 diecuts on the faded stenciled image panel. After stamping the sentiment and adding the pearl drops, both cards are complete.
I hope you liked my projects.

This month’s challenge by Itsy Bitsy is Anything Goes with Little Birdie Watercolour Embellishments
I have a tutorial for you for a Flower Bouquet Card!
What’s better than flowers
Flowers that don’t wilt !!! 😉
Read on further, how to make the Flower Bouquet card…..
You can see the card in action below :
Let’s make the base first :
I first took a light brown handmade paper by Little Birdie measuring 8.5″ × 12″. Scored this piece on the long side at 2.75″, 5.5″, 8.25″ and 11″.
Then I cut off 2″×12″ from the above panel. Kept this strip aside as we would require it later.
I then scored the 6.5″ × 12″ panel at 2.75″ on the shorter side and cut along the red lines as shown in the pic.
It will look like this :
The strip (from step 2), I cut at 4.75″ from the end with the 1″ score line.
Then trimmed it in half the long way to get 2 strips of 1″ x 4.75″ each as shown in the pic. Scored them and added double sided tape to the scored ends.
See how I attached them to the box:
For the matting I cut the following :
6 panels of 2.5″ square
3 panels of 2.5″ × 3.5″
2 panels of 2.5″ × 6.5″
See how I adhered them below :
I adhered a white piece of cardstock on the back to write a message for the recipient.
For the flowers :
I used the Watercolour Paper Blooms pack by Little Birdie. Leaving the largest size, I used the other 3 sizes of flowers.
You can watercolor them as per your choice. I used watercolor pencils to color them. Then I embossed the petals a little bit and decorated the center with Little Birdie Pearl drops. I let the drops dry overnight.
* You can make smaller or larger dots based on your choice. They dry hard. *
I also diecut leaves from the Ornate frame dieset with green cardstock.
The next step is to add thin strips of green cardstock (of different lengths) to each of the flowers and some of the leaves.
I also diecut 3 panels of cream color handmade paper using appropriate Square cross-stitch thin cut die by Little Birdie.
I stamped a sentiment onto this from my stash.
The last step is to attach the flowers & leaves with glue onto the box as per your choice.
Hope you liked my flower bouquet card. If you do make this card, I would love to see your creations.

Have a great day ahead!
