Kindness – Guest Designer at CASology

Hi there,

I am playing along as the Guest Designer at CASology Challenge this week and I am on cloud nine. CASology is one of the challenges where my work has been acknowledged on several occasions by the talented DT members and i am forever grateful for their constant encouragement and support.

Week 280 - Kindness

The cue word this week is Kindness. The challenge is to make CAS style cards, so do check out the CAS guidelines from their website.

So here’s my take on the cue word – A bit of dimension, glitter and gloss make a CAS card extra beautiful against the white space. I feel being kind is supper cool and hence i went with cool colors. Also to match the word difference in the sentiment i went with a  unique die cut pieces.

The clean and simple way of making a card always highlights the message and the feeling of happiness / kindness that we show each other by giving handmade cards and items.  This is the perfect opportunity to spread some kindness around.  Thank and acknowledge others for their kindness.

 

I hope my card inspires you to play along CASology challenge and gets you crafting to spread kindness around. Do visit their blog for more inspiration from the super talented Design Team. Many thanks to the lovely ladies at CASology for the honor.

Hope you liked my card. Do let me know by leaving me comments. I really love reading them.

#105 (2)

I am very excited and greatly honored to play along with AAA Cards challenge as Guest Designer for the Game #105 with the theme – Sparkle. The challenge is to make CAS style cards, so do check out the definition of CAS from their website by clicking HERE.

I love CAS style cards because its made with a few striking elements to compliment the contrasting white space for achieving a stunning look and there is nothing better than adding sparkle to a CAS Card. So here’s my card for the game.

For this challenge I made a CAS Christmas card and the theme – Sparkle was just perfect to play with all the shiny goodies in my craft stash. To make this card I used red Glimmer paste for the strip on the left, gold heat embossing powder for the sentiment as well as for completely covering the elegant snowflake die cut, a golden thread to hang the embossed snowflake, some clear sparkling sequins and green metallic card stock as card base.

Hi there,

Today I am sharing a card that I made inspired by the sketch at CAS Color and Sketch challenge #251, colors at Color Throw Down Challenge #471, Embossing technique at Crafters Cafe Blog Challenge #186

I am really happy how the black border around the die cut n in laid ‘Hello’ word looks between the two gold heat embossed panels. The foam under the die cut ‘Hello’ word adds more interest.

I really enjoyed planing the inlay design and the die cutting for this card. Hope you like it too.

Shaken not stirred

Hi, here’s yet another entry for the AAACard Challenge inspired by films

I think we all have grown up watching generations of 007 movies packed with adventure, action n thrill.

Over the years the actors playing the classy super spy changed, locations changed, Villians changed,  but what remained constant was this man’s drink n the precise manner in which he wants it made…

So here’s to Mr. Bond, James bond.

Happy Succulents

Hi,

Today I am sharing a card that is inspired by the mood board of Rainbow Crafty Kari challenge for this month

For this card I smooshed distress inks on a water color paper to create the background. While the background was drying, using copic friendly black ink I stamped the images from simonsaysstamp ‘cups and succulents’ set on a separate copic friendly paper. After coloring the images with copic markers and adding white highlights, I fussy cut them n stuck them on the background panel that was created earlier. I pasted the whole panel on a colored card base to finish the card.

Hope you like the card.

Thanks

Education

The cue card for the current Challenge @ CASology is “Education” and that’s the inspiration for this card dedicated to you all

I have had no formal education in art or anything remotely related to art. Everything that I do is learnt from crafters n artist online n I am so thankful for all the education.

I am thankful to all the Crafters, Artist, crafting strores + companies, IG friends, Bloggers, challenge hosts, You Tubers and Pinteresters around the world who have educated me in this lovely art form.

Love you all. 💖😍
