AAA Cards- Somewhere over the Rainbow

Hello There!

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

“Someday, I wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That’s where you’ll find me
Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
And the dreams that you dare to
Oh why, oh why can’t I?”
I am from India and we burst out into songs just like that.. Bollywood style …Lol!!

The theme this fortnight is … yup you got that right… Somewhere over the rainbow”

There is something magical about a rainbow and i wanted to capture that in my card. Here’s my take:

For my card I first stamped these adorable image of the rainbow with clouds and unicorn from the ‘Be a Unicorn’ stampset by Avery Elle on to nenah solar white cardstock (Copic friendly paper) with black memento ink (Copic friendly ink) and colored with copics lovely rainbow colors. I then die cut the images with the coordinating dies.

I ink blended a panel with distress inks in such a way that they form the background for the window openings, which i adhered to the card front with foam tape for dimension.

I finally adhered the colored images with foam squared inside the windows. As a finishing touch I added two hearts near the sentiment. I then adhered the whole panel to a white card base.

In case of my card, using the windows helped my maximize the empty space for a CAS look. I love the burst of colors against the white. That’s, i think, is the best part of rainbow theme with a CAS design.

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).

CASology #308 Clouds

Hello There!

The next challenge at CASology is taking you us into the clouds….

Here’s my card

To make this card I first softly ink blended my card front with distress ink and then adhered the die cut clouds. I adhered some of the clouds directly on the card front with glue and some with foam tape for dimension and interest. I then stamped this adorable griffin from one of the lawn fawn stamp sets on Neenah Solor white card stock (a copic friendly paper) with the memento tuxedo black ink (copic friendly ink) and then colored the image with my copics before i fussy cut the image and adhered it on the card. I finished the card by adding the sentiment and mating it on to a back card base.

 

I hope my card inspires you to get crafting and play along with us at  CASology . Just remember to keep it CAS by following the guidelines on the CASology blog.

Here ‘s my take:

bharati nayudu winne and walter christmas card

For my card I first stamped this adorable image of owls from Happy Owlidays stampset by Winnie & Walter on to nenah solar white paper with black memento ink and colored with copics in red and green for the Christmas . I added a few highlights with the white gel pen before fussy cutting the cute couple.

As a finishing touch i inked a stripe of cardstock with red distress ink and adhered on the left side of the card. Just a lil something to add to the design.

I really love how cute the owls look propped up on the branch and how the ornaments hang.

CASology #307 Zoom

Hello There!

It’s time for the next challenge at CASology and the cue word is ‘ZOOM’

Here’s my take

Well I wanted to create an illusion of zooming into a scene through a binoculars, probably because i have been watching too many cop/spy movies while crafting these days. LOL!!! Its funny where one finds inspiration from. I find myself watching netflix or amazon videos or listening to music or an audio book while crafting. What about you. Do you have something playing or like silence while you are crafting? Where do you find your inspiration? Please do share in the comments if you feel like.

Ok, back to the card now. To make this card I first created two overlapping circular windows in a black cardstock. I then white heat embossed the sentiment. Once the frame was ready, i aligned the stamps in such a way that the scene fit inside the window. I stamped the images with versafine onyx black ink and colored with water colors on a white water color paper. I then adhered the black frame on the white colored cardstock.

I hope my card inspires you to get crafting and play along with us at  CASology . Just remember to keep it CAS by following the guidelines on the CASology blog.
