Guest Designer- Piali Biswas

Hello! Are you inspired to create for the latest challenge "Clean Slate"? 
Today we are in for a real treat as we have a special guest--Piali Biswas ( Touch of Creation). I have known Piali through our DT and blogging for a few years now. She always wowed me with her artistic flair and design sense. With Piali's skills and techniques, her handmade cards are truly outstanding. No wonder that Piali is a much sought-after designer and has won numerous competitions and challenges. Let's hear it from Piali...


Piali: Thank you Virginia for having me as your guest designer. It’s a true honor to be here!!!
Love this month’s theme…one of my favorite!! I love CAS cards and especially cards with lots of white space.
I had a blast creating for this challenge, I have not one but 4 cards to share.
First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone….
Piali: A super simple new year’s card, very easy to mass produce. I used Avery Elle –Bunting stamp set and sentiment from CASual Fridays Stamps for this card. I heat embossed the strings, dots and stars with WOW embossing powder .  Just added few tiny clear rhinestones for extra shine.
Next card is simple water-colored one….
Piali: I heat embossed the Stampendous image on watercolor paper and water colored it with distress inks…super simple!!!
Next one is one of my favorite…
Piali: Simple one layer card!! The gorgeous rose stamp is from Waltzing Mouse.
Just added a few Gold shine splatters.
My last card is a cute one using patterned paper… 
Piali: Sometimes PP can be used for CAS cards.
I just added a sentiment from Avery Elle stamps and few tiny gold diecut hearts.
Hope you liked these cards!!!  Can’t wait to see your take on this FAB challenge.
Thanks again ,Virginia!!!
