City Crafter Challenge Blog 5th Birthday Celebration Week #4



Hello everyone,

5th Birthday celebration continues at City Crafter Challenge Blog and this week our Stella is the host :)

We are CASEing her gorgeous card this time:


and this is what I made based on her card:


As soon as I saw Stella's card I thought NAUTICAL...so I made the card with lots of sea themed elements...


As you can see, there is lots of distressing, gesso, and seaside themed embellishments...


One more look at the finished card...

This week's Guest Designer is Lin Please stop by her fabulous blog to check out her work and also check out on City Crafter Challenge what my teammies have made :)

Stella is sponsoring this week's challenge and winner will get this fabulous goodies package




I hope you enjoyed this post...
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by...

  1. Ahhhh I ADORE nautical things, especially as my suns bedroom is kitted out in nautical to the hilt!! This is stunning Samra, I'm absolutely in love with this. The detail is spot on, the rope, the starfish, netting and shells - it's just perfect! xx

    1. Thank you so much my friend! I try to use as much "real stuff" as possible in my projects, so I went with a real starfish rather than paper, turned out pretty good huh? :) See you on the dance floor my dear!

  6. I was here this morning to enjoy your fabulous card and my computer froze right when I hit the publish button, so I'm back to say that I LOVE your inspirational take on the CASE card and really like that you adhered the starfish on the reverse side so we can see a different perspective, yet mirroring the above star...that looks incredible and your faux whitewashed and aged drift wood wall background looks AMAZING!! Beautiful card Samra.

  14. Like so many here, I too am drawn to the sea but have regrettably been land-locked all my life. Your background is especially effective for carrying this theme and it looks as though you used real shells and a real starfish. The fabric textures really pull it all together. Nicely done!

  16. Very cool card, with the nautical knot, and that background is yummy! Thank you for all your recent comments on my blog! I was frantically trying to add a star to the Tim tag, which I forgot. Then computer crashed! uggh! I hear you on going broke on doing those tags. And I'm always a day late and a dollar short on those products! I hope you are doing well, my friend! Big hugs!
