AAACards – Musical CAS Card

Hello There!

Happy Sunday and have musical weekend. The twist at AAAcards challenge this time has musical theme. To make the cards CAS we challenge you to use only one corner of the card. That should be very simple and easy right!

Here’s my card

I used alcohol inks for creating a colorful background in  a corner of the card.

I then added the die cuts of the musical notes on the colored area. The die cuts are by Casual Friday & My Favorite Things. I chose to keep the die cuts in white to enhance the CAS look and to have a strong contrast against the dark background. I then adhered the die cuts and the sentiment and the card is ready.

AAACARDS #132 – One Layer + Love

Hello There!

February is the month of love and we too are celebrating Love at AAACards Challenge.  The challenge format has a twist and is made more interesting for you to create wonderful Clean And Simple cards.

Here’s my card

I have to be honest, i am a bit scared of one layer cards. I guess, that’s because i feel i have very less scope for error. So this is completely out of my comfort zone.

I began with coloring this cute and adorable image by Penny Black Stamps. I think the set is called critters in love.

After coloring, the image, i masked it with liquid masking fluid and inked the background with a bit of blue and green.

Tip: Please be patient for the masking fluid to dry. You may use a masking paper or masking tape as well.

After inking, i then peeled the masking and stamped the sentiment. Voila! the card is ready.

AAACards #130 Three of Something

Hi There!

3 of something

Here’s My Card

a

For this card i tried out some coloring with pencils . I must say, i really enjoyed playing with prisma color pencils.

b

Once the coloring was done I first used a rectangular die with a wonky border to create a card front. Then i heat embossed the  sentiment onto it in black.

c

I then adhered the fussy cut colored image of the birdies with foam squares for some dimension. I finally adhered the card panel to a black card base to finish the card.

d

CASology #Glass

Hi there!

Thank you for joining me for the next challenge at CASology and the cue word is “Glass”

Week 321 - Glass.jpg

Here’s my take

UFGFE5844.JPG

Many ideas popped in my head – stain glass effect, beer glass, other cocktail glasses, glass window, snow globe, reading glasses…

I decided to raise my glass to my lil sis, who is traveling beautiful places around the world and enjoying the best in life.

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:

CASology #Arithmetic

Hi There

Thank you for joining me for this week’s challenge at CASology!

The cue word is Arithmetic. Interesting isn’t it!

I made a retirement card for a senior at work. Here’s my take

VDOGE2310

I love try out different medium, techniques and products. I guess all crafters are. Sometimes i wonder if the love for the products gets my mojo going. Does this happen to you. Do you make cards just to use / try some new products. I recently bought black embossing paste and i had to immediately use it, before i could break a rash or something. Lol!

TRLRE0384

To make this card I applied the embossing paste on the card using a stencil by Tim Holtz. The texture and dimension of the embossing paste add such lovely interest. I then added the strip of black card stock with the sentiment heat embossed in white. This sentiment is by Mudra Stamps. I love the font on the sentiment.
