Masking is one of the best techniques to create a CAS card and to cluster images on a card. To make this card i used masking tape as well as masking paper, inks by tubby craft and stampset by CAS-ual Fridays.

I first stamped the image in shades of pink using inks by Tubby craft and then masked it completely before stamping the image in shades of blue inks by Tubby Craft. I then masked both the images and used a masking tape before i inked the lower part of the card front.

I finally stamped the sentiment from the stampset and adhered the card front to a soft pink card base.

CASOLOGY # Frozen

Hello There!

Welcome back to the CASology challenge. As the world is covered in snow, you have a perfect cue word to be inspired by the winter around you.

week 326 - frozen

Here’s my take:

4

First i stamped and colored this cute image by Gerda Steiner Designs with alcohol markers and fussy cut it.

2.1

Next i inked the card base in blue and heat embossed a few snow flakes in white. I made sure that the inking aligns to the window which i die cut from a white card stock.

3

I then adhered the image, the cardstock with the window cut in it and the card base with foam tape for added dimension.

I finally stamped the sentiment.

1

What’s your take? I hope my card inspires you to join us at CASology and gets you to crafting. Do  play along with us, just remember to keep it CAS. The following CAS guidelines should be of help when creating your design:

  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

Please check out the awesome CAS cards that the talented design team members and lovely guest designer made to inspire you:

Bookmarks n Crafting on the go!

Hello There!

Welcome to my blog. Do you like to craft on the go! Well i just love to. Creating with less supplies and on clock makes me more focused. Recently i was traveling and decided to experiment with watercolors.

Crafting on the go!

I ended up making these watercolor backgrounds on the move. Once i came home, i turned them into bookmarks for my son, hubby & sis-in law.

They all love to read. I wish i read as much as they do. “Read more” is always on my resolution list, right next to “eat less”. Lol!!

img_9259-e1546619439186.jpg

I punched the holes and threaded twine and to convert these tags with watercolor background into bookmarks, all I had to do was heat emboss in black these lovely and adorable images from the stamp set “Silly book monsters” by Your Next Stamp.

Hope you like these. do let me know what do you think about these and if you too love to craft on the go.

I am entering these in the following challenges:

Your Next Challenge – Anything goes.

Hi There!

Welcome to the Christmas challenge with Tubby Craft.

Here are my cards using the awesome products by Tubby crafts. The stamps with cute and adorable images and beautiful sentiments in lovely fonts make card making so much fun.

First Card : Christmas Scene in a Room

Picture1

To make this card I first created the scene of a room using the Dye Inks by Tubby Crafts as water colors.  The Tubby craft inks i used are Magenta, Jet Black, Chinese Blue, Lemon Yellow and Tangy Orange.

Picture3.jpg

I them stamped the images of this cute girl and wonderful Christmas tree from “Shine on” stamp set in jet black ink and colored those with copic markers and pencils before fussy cutting and adhering the images to the scene.

Picture4

I then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in black to finish the card.

Here’s the final look.

I am playing with a couple of challenges with this card:

Second Project : Clean and Simple Christmas Card

Picture6.jpg

The second card is more of a Clean and Simple take on the Christmas theme.

Picture8

I first stamped the sentiment from the “Christmas Wishes” stamp set and heat embossed it in gold. I then added the cute Holly images from the “Shine on” stamp set after stamping, coloring and fussy cutting those.

Picture9I am so much in love with this image of the Christmas tree as it is the perfect size, shape and festive looking. This tree is a part of the “Shine on” stamp set. I had stamped the image with Jet Black ink by Tubby craft and then added coloring with alcohol markers and pencils. I filled the circular decorations on the tree with nuvo crystal drops.
