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.

Here’s My Card with the theme and the twist

10754797088_img_0775

Masking is one of the best techniques to create a CAS card and to cluster images on a card. To make this card i used masking tape as well as masking paper, inks by tubby craft and stampset by CAS-ual Fridays.

bf6c5753-cb03-4d27-b259-086d2ccb361a

I first stamped the image in shades of pink using inks by Tubby craft and then masked it completely before stamping the image in shades of blue inks by Tubby Craft. I then masked both the images and used a masking tape before i inked the lower part of the card front.

I finally stamped the sentiment from the stampset and adhered the card front to a soft pink card base.

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

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

AAACards #125 Inspired by TV

Hello There!!

Happy Sunday! Welcome to another wonderful challenge at AAACards. This one got to be an entertaining one! – ‘Inspired by a TV Show’

imagine.jpg

I was inspired by the TV show Star Trek and Big Bang. Here’s my take –

Bharati nayudu, CAS Cards, AAACards, spock.jpg

This card is extra extra special because i made it with goodies gifted to me by my dear friend and supremely talented Maakie. She blogs at cardsbymaaike , check her site and You Tube channel for tons of inspiration.

IMG_20180923_185806_Bokeh__01To make this card I first colored the image with copics markers (alcohol markers)  I then fussy cut the image with a scissors. I then used a stencil with abstract geometric patterns and nuvo glimmer paste to create a background in the corner of the card. Its always easy to make a CAS card by having the elements in one corner to maximize all the empty space.

To finish the card i adhered the sentiment that was heat embossed in white on a black card stock stripe.

I then adhered the colored image just on top of the sentiment with foam tape for dimension.
