Sharing a card that i made with my son. He always loves to help. So we colored this cute lil piggy with copics and masked before we stenciled with distress inks. We really loved the way this cutie was hugging the heart and thought the sentiment ‘sending hugs’ matched.
My son is actually recovering from cold and this crafting time helped him distract and feel better for sometime. I strongly believe that crafting has a very calming effect and is one of the best way to bond with kids.
We are playing along with CASology – Hugs challenge
I hope you liked the card as much as we enjoyed making it.
Hugs from both of us! Have a great day.
Hi, today I am sharing a card which my son Ishaan helped me with. When I told him about the inspired by films challenge at AAACards Challenge, he wanted us to make this Card inspired by the film n book which he seems to have enjoyed.
My son Ishu (short for Ishaan) was gifted a quilling kit for his birthday and that’s when it all began! Both of us got into quilling and since then we have enjoyed a lot of time together. Here ishaan is making a gift for his beloved grand parents.
I was really amazed at how confidently and independently he wanted to do this project all by him self. He had come to me and ask me to show him on a scrap paper how to stick the single strips and then he used the technique for the stems and the waves of water at the bottom.
Speaking of those waves, the lotus flowers were actually not part of his original project. While he was completing his design we had visited this place called “Kondakarla Ava” a lake full of lotus flowers. So Ishu incorporated those lotus flowers as well.
It is need less to say say how over the top happy my parents were to receive this handmade gift, we all know how loving grand parents are.
Have a nice day!
Today I am sharing a card that I made using a makeup brush for ink blending. I normally struggle with soft ink blending n fading it to the white. But I really like the results with the makeup brushes and it is very easy as well. Also, these makeup brushes are very cheap compared to the clarity brushes that have been on my wish list since the first time I saw those.
I am playing along with two challenges with this card:
The CASology challenge the cue card is “BUD” and less is more challenge where the challenge is to use a real object on the card.
There is small story with this card that I want to share. I told my card idea to my husband and our nine years old son, who liked the idea a lot. But when I started to make the card I realized that I didn’t have an ear bud at home. My son heard me saying that the CASology challenge is getting closed tomorrow and that I have to enter the card today. While I was wondering what I should do, my sweet little son appeared after 10 mins with two-three buds in hand for me. He had actually gone to our neighbor’s house n got me those. My God I was so happy. So this card is extra special to me.
Hope you enjoy reading this post as much as I loved playing along with the challenges.
I really love reading your feedback so please do leave your comments
Have a great day!
