Welcome back to the CASology challenge.. Today we have a fun cue word for this week’s challenge. It is “Bounce”
Here’s my Card
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:
One main image
Lots of open space, uncluttered
Limited layers & embellishments
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:

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 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.

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 ” .
In 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.
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!!!
