CASology # 314 Boy

Hello There!!

This week we have a cue word that encourages your to make cards for the boys in your life

Week 314 - Boy.jpg

I have little boy in my life whom i absolutely love and adore, my son Ishaan.

Here’s my take:

IMG_20180923_185249_Bokeh__01.jpg

IMG_20180923_185328_Bokeh__01.jpgTo make this card I first stamped this image of an adorable boy on to Nenah Solar white card stock (Copic friendly paper) with  memento tuxedo black ink (Copic friendly ink) and colored with copics (you may use any alcohol markers). I then fussy cut the images with a scissors.

I then adhered the fussy cut image with dimensional double sided tape on the white card front before i finally stamped the sentiment  I then adhere the whole panel to a red card base that matches with the shirt of the boy.

 

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.

AAACards #124 Imagine

Hello There ! Happy Sunday!

I think i read somewhere that Albert Einstein once said : “Logic will take you from point A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere!”

It’s time for out next challenge and the theme is one of my most favorite words – “Imagine”

#124.jpg

Here’s my take, I imagined a fantasy land of mystic and mythical beings up in the sky. By the way, i am a huge fan of the magical world of harry potter and this card was made when my son and i were reading the book – “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”. Sometimes i wish there were a magical land of crafting and scraps were the money. I would be super rich because i have 3 HUGE bins of scraps (Ok, i just realized while writing this blog that i am hoarding scraps…. Who hoards scarps??). Here’s my card…

img_e4561-e1537069700944.jpgTo make this card I first stamped the images from the  Mythical creatures stamp set by lawn fawn on to Nenah Solar white card stock (Copic friendly paper) with  memento tuxedo black ink (Copic friendly ink) and colored with copics (you may use any alcohol markers). I then fussy cut the images with a scissors. To create the scene in the sky, i also die cut a few clouds from white card stock.

To complete the card I went with some soft ink blending for the sky and then adhered all the elements before i finally stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set. I then adhere the whole panel to a black card base.

Back to school

Hello there!

I am so glad you are joining me. Today i am playing with the “Pencil in” stampset by Waffl Flowers.  It’s a stampset with a lot of adorable images perfect for school cards.

1.jpg

I started by stamping all the images from the stamp set on to nenah solar white card stock (Copic friendly paper) with  memento tuxedo black ink (Copic friendly ink) and colored with copics (you may use any alcohol markers). I then fussy cut the images with a scissors.

                 3.jpg        2.jpg        4.jpg

5I then used the frame die set by My Favorite things and adhered it on to a white card stock with double layer of foam tape for added dimension. And then adhered all the colored images – some with liquid glue, few with single layer of foam tape and a few with double layer of foam tape to add interest in the card with varied dimension.

I also let a few of the images stick out of the frame a bit for more interest and fun. While coloring i tried to repeat the colors so that everything looks together.

I then matted the card panel on to a black card stock and adhered the matted panel to a white card base.

I had super fun making this card and am going to enter a couple of challenges.

Photo inspiration Challenge #455 at Just us girls– inspired by the “back to school” theme for my card, usage of kraft, white and black card stocks and the sentiment. inspired by the different sections in the photo i used this frame to divide my card into small sections.

Challenge #351 Back to school at The Paper Shelter – This challenge inspired the school theme and the sentiment of my card.

Challenge # 56 at Words 2 Craft By – School theme

Will you succeed? You will, indeed! (98 and 3/4% guaranteed.) Kid, you’ll move mountains.”

These words inspired the school theme card with all the kids. This Dr. Seuss quote motivates and assures them of success in any field they choose. Inspires the kids to dream big.  Inspired by the quote i added various elements like black board, lab beakers, colors, scales, variety of books etc.. And symbolic to the kids moving mountains, i added the globe is such a way the it seems the kids are on top of the word.. Lol (atleast in my crazy mind) .

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 480 –  Back to School

“back to school” inspires the theme and look of my card. It also inspires the sentiment.

Please do let me know what you think about this card. I love and appreciate your comments and thoroughly enjoy reading those.

Happy crafting !!

Sending Hugs

Bharati nayudu Hugs CAS card

Hi There!

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.

 

Quilling with Ishaan

Picture1.png

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.

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!

Best Bud

Hello there!

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!
