AAA Cards – #149 Up to One Third

Hello There!
Welcome to a new challenge at AAA Cards.
#149
This time the idea is to use only up to one third of the card front and leave the rest as empty space with an optional twist of using inlaid die technique.
Here’s My take

For this card I played the alcohol inks by Beyond inks on yupo paper using alcohol ink blending solution to create a colorful  inked panel.

Then on a white card front I die cut the word “hello” using the word die by simon says stamp. I then adhered the inked panel behind the die cut card such that the inked background would show through.

I then adhered the tiny white pieces of the letters of all the letters to on the card front and adhered it to a white card base to finish the card. I love that the sentiment is a part of the design such that it maximizes the white space to create a CAS card.

This card is made using a background stamp from penny black. First I inked the background stamp with distress oxide inks of my choice and then stamped on a card front. I let the inks dry for sometime and then using distress inks inkblending over the stamped images in similar colors.

On a separate white cardstock i stamped this beautiful sentiment by Mudra Stamps. Then i die cut both the card panel and the sentiment strip to have stiched border.

To finish my card i assembled it by adhering the elements using foam tape. I adhered the finished panel on a white card base.

This card was super easy and simple to make. Hope you liked it.

Here’s My take – ( I have flipped the sketch for this one )

For this card I first stamped, colored and fussy cut this adorable image of a storck carrying a baby. Since the legs of the storck are very delicate, I left a white border all along while fussy cutting to give it a look of a die cut image.

I then inked the card front in soft blue ink using a cloud stencil. I used distress inks for this. After the ink was dry, i stamped a simple sentiment and matted the card panel on a black card base to finish the project.
