CASology #346 Ring

Hi there!

Welcome to my post for the CASology challenge this week.

I have a important news to share. I am presently at a stage in my life that some of the family and personal goals are taking priority over crafting time. With less time for cardmaking I feel, I may not be able to do proper justice to my position on this very amazing design team. Hence, with a heavy heart I have decided to step down from the CASology team from June 2019.

It was such a great journey for me with the ultra cool ladies on the team. We always helped eachother and shared inspiration. It was just pure creative fun! Thank you so much Deidre Payne, Jacquie Southas, Janet Ribet, Jen Wills, Joyce Mehrberg, Karen Haman, Melissa Chipperfield, Rachel, and Sue Symens. You Gals Rock!

I must thank you all the participants and regular visitors of CASology for all the sweet words and kind comments. It helped me in sharing my creations each week for over a year and half now.

Like they say, all good things must come to an end. This is where i bid you all good bye. I hope we will continue to keep in touch through blogland.

Comming to the cue word is this week. It is “Ring”

Week 346 - Ring.jpg

Here’s my take:

1.JPG

I first stamped, colored and fussy cut the image of this adorable lion. I used zig real brush markers to color the image and add details on the mane.

2.JPG

Next I stamped the images of the circus tent and elephant with a very light distress ink and used masking paper to help get the desired affect.

3.JPG

I then added the sentiment in black and adhered the image of the lion to completet the card.

I hope my card inspires you to join us at CASology and gets you to crafting. Do  play along with us, just remember to keep it CAS. The following CAS guidelines should be of help when creating your design:

  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

CASology #345 Clam

Hi there!

Welcome to my post for the CASology challenge this week. The cue word is this week is “Calm”

I actually started crafting and card making to cope with my stress and still it is a great stress buster for me. Some times i have these bouts of mild depressions and the stigma attached to it makes it even more harder to share. Crafting and the amazing crafting community has really helped me immensely, for which i am forever grateful.

Here’s my take:

DSXR9019.JPG

I first placed the stencil of Buddha slightly off set from the card front and then inked it with distress inks.

I then adhered the the sentiment strips

CASology #344 Summer

Hi there!

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

Week 344 - Summer.jpg

I live in India and the summers here are super hot here. However, they are packed with juicy fruits like watermelons, mangoes, tender palm fruit, musk melon ……. Its a time for holiday from school and fun at the beach or the pool…. I was inspired by all this for my card.

Here’s my take:

1

I first die cut a white card front from a rectangular die and then stenciled it with distress inks and rays stencil by Crafty scrappers.

2.JPG

I then stamped this adorable hippo biting into a water melon in her beach wear. The stamp is by Neat & Tangles and i colored the image using zig real brush markers.

3.JPG

I then add a few white highlights and drops with a glitter pen before i fussy cut the image

4.JPGI stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Black and then adhered the colored image with double sided foam tape.

5.JPG

To complete the card i adhered the whole panel on a deep yellow card base.

So what’s you take on summer? What do you like to do and how is summer in your country. Do share.

AAACards – Musical CAS Card

Hello There!

Happy Sunday and have musical weekend. The twist at AAAcards challenge this time has musical theme. To make the cards CAS we challenge you to use only one corner of the card. That should be very simple and easy right!

#134.jpg

Here’s my card

1.jpg

I used alcohol inks for creating a colorful background in  a corner of the card.

Picture1

I then added the die cuts of the musical notes on the colored area. The die cuts are by Casual Friday & My Favorite Things. I chose to keep the die cuts in white to enhance the CAS look and to have a strong contrast against the dark background. I then adhered the die cuts and the sentiment and the card is ready.

I had this card ready but i had not taken any photos and i was traveling at that time. Fun story, i took these photos at he airport.

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 is Clean and Simple – CAS.

Welcome back to the CASology challenge. The moment i see a handmade card , what comes to my face a big simile. There is simply something lovely about holding a handmade card in your hand. Don’t you agree. This week the cue word at CASology is SMILE

week 328 - smile

Here’s my take:

e4c22f01-4e3e-4e8d-9f5c-d889a12cf3bf

To make this card i first stamped and colored this cute image by Gerda Steiner Designs with alcohol markers and fussy cut it.

img_0117-1

Next die cut a tag in white and adhered the peeking fox to one side of the tag and stamped the sentiment on the tag in blue to match with the color of the scarf the fox is wearing. I threaded the tag with white and blue twine to match the color of the stamping and the white background. I finally added a few hearts and adhere the tag on the card with foam tape for added dimension.
