CASology #344 Summer

Hi there!

Welcome to my post for the CASology challenge this week. The cue word is this week is Summer!!

Week 344 - Summer.jpg

I live in India and the summers here are super hot here. However, they are packed with juicy fruits like watermelons, mangoes, tender palm fruit, musk melon ……. Its a time for holiday from school and fun at the beach or the pool…. I was inspired by all this for my card.

Here’s my take:

1

I first die cut a white card front from a rectangular die and then stenciled it with distress inks and rays stencil by Crafty scrappers.

2.JPG

I then stamped this adorable hippo biting into a water melon in her beach wear. The stamp is by Neat & Tangles and i colored the image using zig real brush markers.

3.JPG

I then add a few white highlights and drops with a glitter pen before i fussy cut the image

4.JPGI stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Black and then adhered the colored image with double sided foam tape.

5.JPG

To complete the card i adhered the whole panel on a deep yellow card base.

So what’s you take on summer? What do you like to do and how is summer in your country. Do share.

CASology #343 Color

Hi there!

Welcome to my post for the CASology challenge this week. The cue word is color!!

Week 343 - Color

Here’s my take:

1.JPG

I use the dies from the MFT once upon a rainbow die set to cut out the rainbow and clouds

2.JPG

I then inked the rainbow and the clouds with distress inks and added the sentiment with black ink

3

I guess the color on the rainbow was not enough for me, i added some to the sentiment as well and finished the card by added glossy accents over the word colorful.

Hello There!
Welcome to a new challenge at AAA Cards. Happy Mother’s Day to all the lovely ladies..
#140.jpg
The optional twist is to use bright colors and i am sure the pop of colors will look amazing against the crisp whites.
Here’s My take :
XIBA2356.JPG
To make this card I first put a masking tape to mark the area from where i wanted to ink the panel. I then inked up the bottom area of the card with bright colors. I used inks by Tubby Craft for this card as i really like how vibrant they are.
GQHU0361.JPG

Once the inks were dry, I heat embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder.

Finally i matted the panel with a back card and adhered it on a white card base and added a few white highlights.

CASology #342 Mother

Hi there!

Welcome to my post for the CASology challenge this week. Mother’s day is this week end and we have the perfect cue word to get you ready with you Mother’s day cards.

Week 342 - Mother.jpg

Here’s my take:

XRSM8005.JPG

For this card i first stamped this gorgeous butterfly by Tubby Crafts with alcohol marker friendly ink (you can use Memento Tuxedo Black or Tubby Crafty Jet Black) on a white card stock (Use an alcohol marker firendly card stock like Nennah Solar White).

WNXS0756.JPG

I then colored the image with copic markers and then fussy cut the image leaving a whtite background all around. I then cut two die cuts from the letter “M” using the bold Alphabet dies by Die cuts and more. I also die cut two “M”s out of a craft sheet and then adhered to the paper die cuts.

LCYB1481.JPG

On a card front which I die cut using wonky rectangle die by Avery elle, I adhered both the die cuts of the letter “M” which already had the foam cuts underneath. And in middle of both the letters I adhered the butterfly with foam squares to match the dimention. I lifted the wings of the butterfly for added interest and more dimenson.

LHER2296.JPG

I then added the “i love you ‘ sentiement by MFT Stamps in black to finish the card before adhering it to a card base.

Techniques with Tubby Craft Supplies

Hello There!

tubby

Welcome to my post. Today i have made 2 projects using tubby craft stamps with two different techniques for card making.

PROJECT 1 : Water coloring with dye inks and background with Alcohol inks

1.JPG

To make this card I first Stamped the image of this beautiful oyster with a pearl from the stampset called “Precious Treasure” using the acrylic blocks by Tubby Craft and Tubby Craft Jet Black Ink  and heat embossed it with in clear embossing powder.

2.JPG

I then colored the image using Tubby Craft Dye inks as water colors. The inks i used are : Imperial Red, Tangy Orange, Lemon Yellow, Light Pink, and Aqua blue. I added a few white highlights and fussy cut the image.

2a.JPG

Then on a separate card front I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set called  “Precious Treasures” using the acrylic blocks by Tubby Craft in Tubby Craft Jet Black Ink. I then added a strip of background with alcohol inks and even slimmer strip of black and white patter paper along the edge of the card front.

3.JPG

I then adhered the fussy cut image of the oyster using multiple layers of foam tape for added dimension. I then matted the card front with black card stock and adhered it to a white card base.

CARD 2 : Dye inks and embossing trap technique

1.JPG

For this card,  I used the image from the stamp set called “Floral Elements:” and using the acrylic blocks by Tubby Craft I stamped the flowers and leaves in Tubby craft inks on a white card stock.

2  3.JPG

To stamp the  flowers, leaves and elements the Tubby Craft Dye inks used are : Imperial Red, Tangy Orange, Lemon Yellow, and Lawn Green .

4.JPG

After the inks were dry i stamped all the images with Versamark ink and heat embossed the areas with clear embossing powder. Once I was sure all the colored images were sealed with the embossing powder, I covered the entire card front with Tubby Craft Jet Black Ink.

5a.JPG

I then cut the entire panel into rectangular pieces and adhered them with multiple layers of foam tape on a card front. This way the patter gets a unique layout and has more dimension. I tucked in a black and white pattern paper on the edge and added a word die cut on the top for sentiment.
