AAA Cards #118 Frames

Hello There !

Happy Sunday and i am so glad your joining me today for the next AAA Cards Challenge!

The theme this time is FRAMES.

IMG_1684

Isn’t it just perfect to inspire a Clean and Simple design. Here are a few ideas to help you start – frame your focal point using die cuts, stamping around the focal point, use the stamp of a frame, stamp your sentiment inside a frame, create a scene inside a window or frame your image with the sentiment. Whatever be the technique you use, keeping the design framed and contained will surely enhance the CAS look and maximize the white space. So join us with your creative take on the theme FRAMES.

Here’s my take on the challenge:

Bharati Nayudu Lawn Fawn stamps Frames and seasons tweetings AAA Cards CAS CardFor my card I first stamped and colored this adorable frame from the Flirty frames stamp set by Lawn Fawn. Then I stamped the tiny branch and the cute lil birdie from the Season’s Tweetings stamp set by Lawn Fawn. This sweet lil bird reminded me of one of my favorite childhood cartoon characters – Tweety. So I colored it yellow and gave it a blue cap. I wanted to make the branch appear as if it was somewhere high and so I masked the bird and the branch to ink a few clouds in the background of the frame. I finished the card by stamping a few pretty flowers and the sentiment in scripty font from the Flirty frames stamp set by Lawn Fawn.

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 IT CAS (Clean And Simple).

One Layer Card – Lots of Love

Hello There !

Today I am sharing a one layer clean and simple style card that is very easy to make and can be used for  Valentine’s day as well as for all other occasions.

I have mentioned earlier that i like to craft / color on the go, its mostly because I am hard pressed for crafting time and more so because I would rather craft than do anything else. So I carry a small pouch with my zig real brush markers, water brushes, pre-stamped card fronts, a few tissues, a white & a black pen and I am all good to go.  I stamp and emboss some of my card panels and that makes it coloring more fun and easy.

bharati-nayudu-cas-penny-black-stamp-hedgeho-love-handmade-card.jpgThe best thing about this way is that, it helps me focus and make best out of the limited supplies in hand and enjoying the coloring process.

Coloring on the go has also made me more patient in handling any kinda waiting time or service delays. After all everyone is trying to do their best.

This adorable hedgehog by Penny Black Stamps was colored on the go and later turned into an one layer card that are postal friendly. I love how the sentiment lots of love goes so well with the many hearts in the cart.

I am entering this card into a few challenges :

  1. Less is More # 363 One Layer card – Cute : This adorable and cute hedgehog on a one layer CAS card fits the bill
  2. Penny Black Saturday Challenge # January – Anything Goes : This adorable hedgehog is by Penny Black Stamps from the stamp set ‘Critters in Love’

Hope you like this card. I really appreciate your valuable comments and the time you take out to visit my blog. Thank you.

Lots of love to you!

Cherish 

Hi,

Today I am sharing this card that I made for my husband.

When I saw the cue card word “Cherish” at CASology challenge, all I could think about was how i really cherish my relationship with him.

I also love the fact that ever since I have started cardmaking, I am able to express my love and feelings through cards to all the people in my life.

Hope you liked the card

Love is in the Air

The movie UP is one of my favorite movies /love stories. I love the soundtrack of the film as well. Here’s another entry for the aaacardchallenge inspired by the movie UP.

 

To make the clouds I first die cut a scrap card stock with cloud border die. Then using the die cut as a stencil, I softly blended the cloud pattern on a white card front.

For this card I used stamps and coordinating dies from lawnfawn bicycle built for you , lawnfawn Fairy Friends and MFT adorable elephant. I colored the balloons with water colors and the house with copic markers.

To finish the card I stuck all the elements on the card front and added the Sentiment.

I love how stamps from lawnfawn and mftstamps  go so well together. That’s another love story I guess.

Linking this card toHSL anything thing goes with dies challenge

Hope you loved the card. Have a great day.

It’s time for Cake!

Hi, Today i am sharing a card that i made on the go. I have always loved to craft/ color on the go. Helps me crave less for crafting time and the challenge to color or craft with limited supplies is fun! I especially like to color in a cafe. There is something about the combination of coloring and fresh brewed coffee that is wonderfully refreshing.. Also there are so many treats around to instantly reward myself for finishing a card or maybe even an image…. Lol

This one layer card was created on the go, in a cafe. I stamped the penny black ” Cupcake for you” stamp on water color card stock with versafine onyx black ink and colored it using Zig Real Brush Markers. I only colored the image and left the rest of the card very simple to achieve a CAS – One lay Card.

I am done with my card and as a reward – It’s time for Cake!
