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:

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.

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.

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.

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.

This cute lil penguin seems to be on my dream holiday, on the beach under the tree with a cooler in its hand. Hmmm… somethings are still missing though – a hammock , a good book and a craft table by the side. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all had a magical craft table and the moment we wanted to craft all we had to do was to snap our fingers and Abracadabra – your craft table is right in front of you. What do you Say?

Whenever i make a beach card my soul floats back to GOA. I absolutely love that place, the sandy beaches, the cool lifestyle, the music, the food, the picturesque drives, Goan Homes, the people… All i want to do there is just Chill!
My dad was in the Indian Navy so all through my life i was lucky to have lived in various coastal places in India like – Mumbai, Visakhapatnam, Port Blair … I have finally settled in Visakhapatnam, which is a coastal city in Andhra Pradesh. There is something mesmerizing about water; I just love being in it, be it the ocean, lake, river , swimming pool or just a tub. My son too has started enjoying in the water and loves to swim.

By the way i am playing along in a couple of challenges with this card :
