CASology #343 Color

Hi there!

Welcome to my post for the CASology challenge this week. The cue word is color!!

Week 343 - Color

Here’s my take:

1.JPG

I use the dies from the MFT once upon a rainbow die set to cut out the rainbow and clouds

2.JPG

I then inked the rainbow and the clouds with distress inks and added the sentiment with black ink

3

I guess the color on the rainbow was not enough for me, i added some to the sentiment as well and finished the card by added glossy accents over the word colorful.

CASology #342 Mother

Hi there!

Welcome to my post for the CASology challenge this week. Mother’s day is this week end and we have the perfect cue word to get you ready with you Mother’s day cards.

Week 342 - Mother.jpg

Here’s my take:

XRSM8005.JPG

For this card i first stamped this gorgeous butterfly by Tubby Crafts with alcohol marker friendly ink (you can use Memento Tuxedo Black or Tubby Crafty Jet Black) on a white card stock (Use an alcohol marker firendly card stock like Nennah Solar White).

WNXS0756.JPG

I then colored the image with copic markers and then fussy cut the image leaving a whtite background all around. I then cut two die cuts from the letter “M” using the bold Alphabet dies by Die cuts and more. I also die cut two “M”s out of a craft sheet and then adhered to the paper die cuts.

LCYB1481.JPG

On a card front which I die cut using wonky rectangle die by Avery elle, I adhered both the die cuts of the letter “M” which already had the foam cuts underneath. And in middle of both the letters I adhered the butterfly with foam squares to match the dimention. I lifted the wings of the butterfly for added interest and more dimenson.

LHER2296.JPG

I then added the “i love you ‘ sentiement by MFT Stamps in black to finish the card before adhering it to a card base.

Now it’s your turn to jump into action!

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.

#133.jpg

Here’s my card

KYBSE8999.JPG

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.

RQXSE6464.JPG

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

WJXFE5772.JPG

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.

KQRGE0454.JPG

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

The theme for Decemeber 2019 is  – “Winter / Christmas”

Just perfect for this festive season

Allie spends most of her days napping and her nights are spent getting in to mischief… Allie loves to act with Pattieboop and you will see them in some very funny situations.

For this card, I first Colored the adorable image of Pattieboop and Allie with copic markers. I enjoyed coloring the Christmas tree and dressing it up with nuvo drops in red. To give a wooden texture to the window frame i added some curvy lines and fussy cut the window frame. I folded and opened both the window doors.  I then added some snow with the snow pen and heat set it. To finish the card i adhered the colored image to a pattern paper with winter scene.

I love the dimension the folded doors of the window, the nuvo drops and the snow provide to this card. I had so much fun making this.

Hi There!

I am thankful for a lot of things in my life, my parents, loving sis, caring husband, family, friends and most of all our super adorable son. I am truly blessed to have a stable job and to have found my calling i.e. crafting  – Handmade Happiness.

But every once in a while life throws a curve ball and you got to deal with it. Recently, I had such a situation and thanks to a very loving friend, whom i absolutely admire, i could hit this curve ball right out of the park! I knew fell down hard, but thanks to my dear friend, i got myself up feeling more powerful and beautiful from within. Thank you dear friend and this card is especially for you. I am forever Grateful to you and our friendship.

Here’s To make this card i first stamped and colored the center cut floral stamp by Simon Say stamp. After fussy cutting the image, I then covered the colored portion with glossy accents for added texture and dimension.

Pattie’s Creations Challenge # Birthday

Hello There!

IMG_6745.PNG

I am so excited to share my great news of joining the Design Team of Pattie’s Creations Challenge. This a theme based challenge with many wonderful prizes and  showcases.  Pattie Gomez, the challenge coordinator is an amazing illustrator as well as designer who has a range of digital stamps to offer. I am so happy to join her and the talented design team at Pattie’s creations. Thank you ladies for having me on board.

The Theme for November 2018 is – “BIRTHDAY”

Here’s my card using the “Pattieboop Original Stamp” . Well i wanted to start with this classic Pattie boop image as i just fell in love with her the moment i saw her. Let me introduce to you Pattie boop, if you haven’t met her yet.

1

IMG_6744.JPGPattieboop is an 11 year old girl who is very opinionated. She was created by Pattie Gomez on September 7, 2009. Pattieboop is an average 11 year old and she loves dressing up. She is very petite in nature but stands tall because her mother always told her that “If you stand tall you will one day become someone important”. Pattieboop always remembers her mother’s words and makes sure she is noticed.

2.JPG

Pattieboop has a favorite pet named Allie. Allie is a slender black cat and loves playing and spending time with Pattieboop. Allie spends most of her days napping and her nights are spent getting in to mischief… Allie loves to act with Pattieboop and you will see them in some very funny situations.

3.JPG

For this card, I first Colored the adorable Pattieboop with copic markers and fussy cut her. Her hands where behind and to make her look even more adorable, i gave her two  inked die cut balloons to hold for the Birthday Party. Then i adhered the images and the Happy Birthday die cut sentiment on a vellum sheet. I later adhered the vellum on to a patter paper that had colorful sentiment all over. Vellum works great to subtly cover the background to allow focus on the focal image.

I hope my card inspires you to playing with us and share your lovely birthday cards. REMEMBER, if you use one of Pattie’s images you get an extra entry to the challenge… Just make sure to please give her the credit for the images. Have Fun!!!

Fall Floral card

Hi There!

I am so happy you are joining me today! Today i am sharing a fall card with floral and leaves theme.

MYIFE0160.JPG

I actually love quilling in addition to stamping. So these stamps by Newton’s Nook with quilled flowers is like having best of both worlds!! Lol!

 

 

To make this card, i first inked a white card stock with distress inks in fall colors using the leaves stencil by Newton’s Nook. After the distress inks dried completely, keeping the stencil in the same position I then covered the inked area with versamark (transparent) ink. I removed the stencil and heat embossed with clear embossing powder to lock the fall colors on the leaves. I then inked the panel with green distress ink. The whole panel popped with wonderful vibrant fall colors and i loved the results so much. I also stamped the quilled flowers & leaves and colored them with alcohol markers. I fussy cut the images and added finishing touches with Nuvo glitter drops.

LLWEE6106

Once all the elements were ready i assembled my card. The i adhered the flowers such that they have some dimension since i wish to hand the card to the recipient myself.
