CASOLOGY #333 Bounce

Hello There

Welcome back to the CASology challenge.. Today we have a fun cue word for this week’s challenge. It is “Bounce”

Week 333 - Bounce

Here’s my Card

1

I made this card by first coloring the adorable image of the basketball by Your Next Stamps with copic markers and then fussy cut it.  I stamped the punny sentiment from the same stamp set and then adhered the colored image.

I am really happy with the CAS look of this card and 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:

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!

Here’s my card

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

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 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.

AAACARDS #132 – One Layer + Love

Hello There!

February is the month of love and we too are celebrating Love at AAACards Challenge.  The challenge format has a twist and is made more interesting for you to create wonderful Clean And Simple cards.

#133.jpg

Here’s my card

KYBSE8999.JPG

I have to be honest, i am a bit scared of one layer cards. I guess, that’s because i feel i have very less scope for error. So this is completely out of my comfort zone.

RQXSE6464.JPG

I began with coloring this cute and adorable image by Penny Black Stamps. I think the set is called critters in love.

WJXFE5772.JPG

After coloring, the image, i masked it with liquid masking fluid and inked the background with a bit of blue and green.

Tip: Please be patient for the masking fluid to dry. You may use a masking paper or masking tape as well.

After inking, i then peeled the masking and stamped the sentiment. Voila! the card is ready.

For this card i tried out some coloring with pencils . I must say, i really enjoyed playing with prisma color pencils.

Once the coloring was done I first used a rectangular die with a wonky border to create a card front. Then i heat embossed the  sentiment onto it in black.

c

I then adhered the fussy cut colored image of the birdies with foam squares for some dimension. I finally adhered the card panel to a black card base to finish the card.

Winter / Christmas Theme at Pattie’s Creations Challenge

Hello There!

IMG_6745.PNG

I am back with the next challenge theme at Pattie’s Creations Challenge, which is a theme based monthly challenge starting on 1st friday of every month with many wonderful prizes and  showcases.

The theme for Decemeber 2019 is  – “Winter / Christmas”

Just perfect for this festive season

Here’s my card using the “Pattieboop and Allie waiting for Santa ” .

1.JPG

IMG_6744.JPGIn my last blog post I had introduced you to Pattieboop. Today, i introduce you to her favorite pet named Allie.  cat and loves playing and spending time with Pattieboop. Allie spends most of her days napping and her nights are spent getting in to mischief… Allie loves to act with Pattieboop and you will see them in some very funny situations.

 

2.JPG

For this card, I first Colored the adorable image of Pattieboop and Allie with copic markers. I enjoyed coloring the Christmas tree and dressing it up with nuvo drops in red. To give a wooden texture to the window frame i added some curvy lines and fussy cut the window frame. I folded and opened both the window doors.  I then added some snow with the snow pen and heat set it. To finish the card i adhered the colored image to a pattern paper with winter scene.

I love the dimension the folded doors of the window, the nuvo drops and the snow provide to this card. I had so much fun making this.

I hope my card inspires you to playing with us and share your lovely birthday cards. REMEMBER, if you use one of Pattie’s images you get an extra entry to the challenge… Just make sure to please give her the credit for the images. Have Fun!!!
