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

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 is Clean and Simple – CAS.

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

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.

AAACards #127 Kindness

Hello There!

“If you can be anything in this world, Be Kind”

Kindness is our theme this fornight at AAACards.

kind.jpg

Here’s my card

kindness2.jpg

I just fell in love with the “Kindness” stamp set by winne and walters. It has such beautiful sentiments and designs. The trees with hearts growing on them seemed perfect for this challenge. So I first stamped the trees and colored them loosely with water colors. After the colors dried i fussy cut the trees and adhered them on the card front with foam tape for some dimension. I had added some wink of stella for golden shine on the hearts. Too bad my photos don’t capture the shimmer.

For the sentiment i went with the big bold “kindness” and added a strip of black with the secondary sentiment heat embossed on it in white. For added interest i changed the orientation of the sentiment on this card. Something different! To finish the card

CASology – Scary

Hi There!

It’s the time of the year when Halloween is celebrated in many countries around the world. The next cue word for the challenge at CASology is – ‘SCARY’.

We don’t celebrate Halloween in India, but my son and i wanna try carving a pumpkin this year just for fun.

Here’s my card

This one was very simple once i stamped and colored the pumpkin.  Initially i was thinking of having the pumpkin on a white card front with inked background. Later i changed my mind looking how well the colored pumpkin pops on a black background.

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

AAACards #126 Moonlight

Hello There!!

Happy Sunday! Welcome to another wonderful challenge at AAACards.

moon.jpg

Here’s my take –

To make this card I first masked the card front leaving the circular area exposed and inked it with distress inks. I then added the moon and splatter of stars with white copic paint.

I then adhered the cute ghost that i had stamped, colored and fussy cut. This cute ghost is from a stamp set by MFT and i added the sentiment from the same set.

I adhered the ghost with foam squares to make it appear to be floating in the night sky.

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 is Clean and Simple – CAS.

CASology #Punctuation

Hello There!

Thank you for joining me for the next CASology challenge. The next cue word is “punctuation”. We are expecting some super interesting takes n designs in our gallery

Here’s my card

To make this card I first inked the edge with distress inks n a stencil

I have fallen in love with using big bold sentiments, especially on a CAS design. This bold “yes you can!” stamp is by Simon say Stamp. I felt that the exclamation mark is perfect for the cue word this week. So I stamped it with black ink. Finally, i adhered the card front to a black card base.

I then added a strip of patterned paper on the edge for added interest.

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.
