bharati nayudu nuvo blu glimmer paste avery elle whale valentines CAS card

Hello There,

I am just back from office and i could not stop myself from playing along with the CASology glimmer challenge.

bharati nayudu nuvo blu glimmer paste avery elle whale valentines CAS card 1 To make this card i first stamped this adorable orca image by Avery Elle stamps and colored it with Zig real brush markers before fussy cutting it.

I them applied blue glimmer paste by Nuvo using the stencil to make the ocean for my whale to swim in.

I wanted to make a masculine valentine’s day card and so i stayed clear from the usual reds and pinks. Also I picked rectangles and squares over the usual waves for the water.

Once the glimmer  paste dried, I stamped the sentiment and adhered the whale. I slightly bent the image of the whale to give it some dimension and interest.

Once the card is was made i felt, it can be used for not just valentine’s day but for all occasions. I really love the texture and the subtle shine that glimmer paste adds to this card.

Although quick, this card was very enjoyable to make. Hope you liked it too. I really appreciate your comments and cherish them.

Have a great week ahead

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.

 

Have a musical day

Hi There,

Today i am super excited to share this card because i love musical themes and these instruments – tabla and sitar are really awesome Indian musical instruments.

I am playing along with the sketch challenge at Craftyscrappers and i have used their products – Rays stencil and No music no life stamp set.

Ok back to the card. I followed the sketch given in the challenge and made a Gate Fold Card.

To create a gate fold card a 5  1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of white cardstock was used as a card base. The short side was scored at 2 1/8 from both edges on both sides and folded. Both the sides were matted with black card stock, leaving a slight white border all around.

Following the sketch, for the left side a stenciled panel was made using the rays stencil and ink blending with distress oxide inks. While the stencil was still in place sparkle was sprayed for added interest. The stenciled panel was then stuck on the left fold. The right fold was stuck with a plain white card stock for contrast. The black matting works as a border for both sides.

The rectangular panel on the center was made by ink blending distress oxide inks and flicking and lifting some water.  For the focal points the images of tablas and sitar from No Music, No Life stamp set were stamped with memento black ink and colored with copic markers before being fussy cut. The cut images were then stuck on the center panel with foam squares for some dimension. The ink blended panel was then matted on to a black card stock and stuck only on the left fold of the card.

To finish the card the sentiment from the same stamp set was white heat embossed on to a black card stock strip, that has a fish tail cut on one end, and was added as per the sketch.

When ever i use products designed by Indian designers and made by Indian crafting companies, i feel very great. Honestly, there is so much talent in India and handicrafts are part of very household. So this card is extra special.

Hope you liked the card. Do let me know what you think of it by leaving me a comment.

Have a great day!

 

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.

Hope you loved the card. Have a great day.

Monsters.ink

Hello there!

Made this Clean n simple card inspired by the movie Monsters.inc for the AAACard Challenge #101 – inspired by a film challenge and less is more #351 – Monsters challenge.

The ink splotches are my tribute to the month of Inktober!

To make this card i first stamped the cute monster image from Crazy Monsters Stampset by Mudra Stamps on copic friendly paper and ink to color with copic markers. After fussy cutting the colored image, i adhered a googly eye for dimension and added fun. Once the image was ready, I stenciled an ink splotch with distress ink after heat embossing the sentiment in black. Then all there was left to finish the card was to adhere my monster image on the card before mounting the panel on a black card base.

Thanks so much for dropping by and do let me know what you think about this one in the comments

Monster Hugs and Happy Inktober!

Fly in the Stars

Did you ever wanted to cycle off to the Moon!Screenshot_20170917-221352.png

Well i did, a long time back when i saw this movie E.T. It was a super hit film and i am sure most of you must have seen it. The boy in movie, along with friend E.T (an extra terrestrial being) in the front basket, cycles and suddenly lifts off in the air and that scene was truly magical. As a kid i was filled with all kinds of wonder and wished i found a friend like E.T someday. For the next couple weeks (till the movie wore off its influence) though, i did cycle with my toys (a doll or a teddy) in the front basket. I cycled very fast and on slops and pretended i had found my E.T. and was flying with him. Oh! lovely childhood memories. Yup! I was and still am a bit crazy in a weird way, living in my own world and having fun.

So the card i am sharing has this scene inspired by the movie E.T, dedicated to dreamers everywhere with a spirit to fly.IMG_20170626_012245_717

I stamped and colored the images from Lawn Fawn – Bicycle built for you set and then used the coordinating dies to cut the images. I stuck the images together to built the scene on the cycle.

Then on a white card stock i stuck a circle masking paper before blending the distress inks. I then stenciled the modeling paste to get the look of a night sky. After the past was dry i peeled off the masking papers to reveal the moon. Then I stuck the boy on the cycle and all the other elements with foam squares. The sentiment from the same stamp set is embossed with white embossing powered on a black card stock.

I actually made this card for my nephew who is studying very hard for his exams and i wish him all the very best. I hope this card brings a smile on his face and helps him shoot for the stars!

I am entering this card to :

  1. Lawn Fawnatics – #12 Create a scene

Magical Stars

Today I am sharing a card that i created for my lil sister. She has been a constant support in my life and made it truly Magical!

For this card i first masked the borders of the die cut water color card stock and then using distress inks, inked the background. I added drops of water with a brush and lift the water with a tissue  before i used a stencil and modelling paste for the stars. I then colored with copic markers and fussy cut the stamped images from MFT Magical Dragons stamp set. The sentiment is from the same stamp set which i heat embossed with white embossing powder on a black card stock strip. I poped the images and sentiment using foam squares. To finish the card i stuck some sequin and applied clear glitter on the sentiment panel. I really like the crisp borders that showed after the marking tape was peeled off.
