CASology #Compliment

Hi There

Thank you for joining me for this week’s challenge at CASology!

The cue word is Compliment

Here’s my take

For this card I heat embossed the card using different embossing powders.

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!)

Please check out the awesome CAS cards that the talented design team members and lovely guest designer made to inspire you:

Can’t wait to see your creative take on this cue word. Do let me know how you like this card by leaving me comments. I love to read them and i appreciate your time on my blog a lot.

CASology #Punctuation

Hello There!

Thank you for joining me for the next CASology challenge. The next cue word is “punctuation”. We are expecting some super interesting takes n designs in our gallery

Here’s my card

To make this card I first inked the edge with distress inks n a stencil

I have fallen in love with using big bold sentiments, especially on a CAS design. This bold “yes you can!” stamp is by Simon say Stamp. I felt that the exclamation mark is perfect for the cue word this week. So I stamped it with black ink. Finally, i adhered the card front to a black card base.

I then added a strip of patterned paper on the edge for added interest.

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 #125 Inspired by TV

Hello There!!

Happy Sunday! Welcome to another wonderful challenge at AAACards. This one got to be an entertaining one! – ‘Inspired by a TV Show’

I was inspired by the TV show Star Trek and Big Bang. Here’s my take –

Bharati nayudu, CAS Cards, AAACards, spock.jpg

This card is extra extra special because i made it with goodies gifted to me by my dear friend and supremely talented Maakie. She blogs at cardsbymaaike , check her site and You Tube channel for tons of inspiration.

IMG_20180923_185806_Bokeh__01To make this card I first colored the image with copics markers (alcohol markers)  I then fussy cut the image with a scissors. I then used a stencil with abstract geometric patterns and nuvo glimmer paste to create a background in the corner of the card. Its always easy to make a CAS card by having the elements in one corner to maximize all the empty space.

To finish the card i adhered the sentiment that was heat embossed in white on a black card stock stripe.

I then adhered the colored image just on top of the sentiment with foam tape for dimension.

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 Cards.jpg

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).

CASology #285 Swoon

Hello Everyone!

I am super thrilled and greatly honored to have joined the awesome Design Team at CASology Challenge. It is indeed a privilege to be working with the very talented card makers I adore. Very grateful to the lovely ladies at CASology for having me and for the warm welcome they have extended me.

IMG_5015.JPG

The Cue word at for the Week # 285 is “SWOON” and here’s my first card as the Design Team member of CASology. It’s a one layer CAS card, perfect for Valentine’s Day.

IMG_4788

I really adore the way these two little mice are looking into each other’s eyes, holding each other’s paws, with overwhelming love… I especially find the knotted tails very cute. I wanted to make a romantic scene on the card and hence opted for a moonlit sky as the background.

img_4791.jpgTo make this card, after stamping the images of the mice & hearts, I covered them with masking fluid. I let the masking fluid dry completely before covering the card front with a masking paper that had a circular window to frame the mice. I then blended distress inks to form a moonlit night sky. Once the inking was done I peeled off the masking, added stars with white gel pen and white heat embossed the sentiment. To maintain the CAS look, I didn’t color the mice much.

I hope my card inspires you to play along with us at CASology Challenge and gets you creating cards for those who make you swoon. Can’t wait to see your wonderful cards in our gallery. Do visit CASology Challenge for more inspiration from the very creative Design Team and the guest designer who have beautiful cards to dazzle you.
