Ombré floral emboss resist card

Hello there!

Today I am sharing a simple and fun card that involves emboss resist.

For this card I first arranged the tiny floral stamps on to my Misti. I then stamped the images with versamark ink and white heat embossed the panel. I then added distress inks on top to give a smooth gradient of warm colours. To finish the card I adhered the sentiment which is a word die cut.

I am playing along with time out challenge with the warm colours n inkspirational challenge with the small stamps.

I hope you liked this card. Do let me know what you think about it.

Happy crafting

Floral card with small stamps-emboss resist

Hello There!

So glad you are joining me as I share a floral card made of small stamps.

For this card I first did water color stamping withdistess inks and clear heat embossed to lock the colours and then inked the card panel with distress inks in shades of blue. Once the panel was ready I cut it and mated it as per my card design. I add the word die cut for sentiment to finish the card.

I am so happy with the texture and colours on this card. I hope you liked it too.

This card is inspired by the challenge at inkspirational challenge where the challenge is to use small stamps.

That’s all for now. Have a great day and do let me know what you think about the card. I appreciate and love reading your comments.

Happy crafting & Hugs

CASology #306 Bear

Hello There!

Let’s jump right in to the next challenge, where the cue word is Bear

Now we all have multiple bear stamps and sentiments… don’t we. This is a great opportunity to use them.

Here’s my take:

square3For this card I colored the bear image from critter costume party stampset with Copic markers and die cut it with coordinating dies. Then on my card front I had first used a stencil to ink the rays. I then adhered the colored image and sentiment to finish the card.

So here ‘s my card:

PUVW4893I really love the super glossy look that’s achieved from using glossy accents and double embossing. I used warm colors and golden embossing for a happy and bright card.

I used foam squares to adhere the flowers to the background for dimension. I finished the card by white heat embossing the sentiment and adding a few embellishments.

AAA Cards #118 Frames

Hello There !

Happy Sunday and i am so glad your joining me today for the next AAA Cards Challenge!

The theme this time is FRAMES.

IMG_1684

Isn’t it just perfect to inspire a Clean and Simple design. Here are a few ideas to help you start – frame your focal point using die cuts, stamping around the focal point, use the stamp of a frame, stamp your sentiment inside a frame, create a scene inside a window or frame your image with the sentiment. Whatever be the technique you use, keeping the design framed and contained will surely enhance the CAS look and maximize the white space. So join us with your creative take on the theme FRAMES.

Here’s my take on the challenge:

Bharati Nayudu Lawn Fawn stamps Frames and seasons tweetings AAA Cards CAS CardFor my card I first stamped and colored this adorable frame from the Flirty frames stamp set by Lawn Fawn. Then I stamped the tiny branch and the cute lil birdie from the Season’s Tweetings stamp set by Lawn Fawn. This sweet lil bird reminded me of one of my favorite childhood cartoon characters – Tweety. So I colored it yellow and gave it a blue cap. I wanted to make the branch appear as if it was somewhere high and so I masked the bird and the branch to ink a few clouds in the background of the frame. I finished the card by stamping a few pretty flowers and the sentiment in scripty font from the Flirty frames stamp set by Lawn Fawn.

I hope my cards inspires you to play along AAA Cards challenge and gets you crafting to make some handmade happiness for your loved ones. Just remember to KEEP IT CAS (Clean And Simple).
