CASology – Scary

Hi There!

It’s the time of the year when Halloween is celebrated in many countries around the world. The next cue word for the challenge at CASology is – ‘SCARY’.

We don’t celebrate Halloween in India, but my son and i wanna try carving a pumpkin this year just for fun.

Here’s my card

This one was very simple once i stamped and colored the pumpkin.  Initially i was thinking of having the pumpkin on a white card front with inked background. Later i changed my mind looking how well the colored pumpkin pops on a black background.

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:

Guest designing @ Words to craft by challenge

Hi there!

So happy you are joining me as I share my guest design for the Words to Craft By challenge. Many thanks to Sybrina and the DT members at Words to Craft by for having me over.

What an amazing quote for inspiration:

Listen!
The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves.

To make this card I inked the panel using a stencil by newton’s nook and distress inks.

I then tied a bow to the inked panel before adhering it to a card base.

For sentiment I used the thankful word die by Simon Says Stamp . I die cut the word in golden n the shadow in black. To finish the card I added a few sequin.

I hope my card inspires you to play along this wonderful challenge at ‘Words to craft by’. Join us and share your take!

Fall Floral card

Hi There!

I am so happy you are joining me today! Today i am sharing a fall card with floral and leaves theme.

I actually love quilling in addition to stamping. So these stamps by Newton’s Nook with quilled flowers is like having best of both worlds!! Lol!

 

 

To make this card, i first inked a white card stock with distress inks in fall colors using the leaves stencil by Newton’s Nook. After the distress inks dried completely, keeping the stencil in the same position I then covered the inked area with versamark (transparent) ink. I removed the stencil and heat embossed with clear embossing powder to lock the fall colors on the leaves. I then inked the panel with green distress ink. The whole panel popped with wonderful vibrant fall colors and i loved the results so much. I also stamped the quilled flowers & leaves and colored them with alcohol markers. I fussy cut the images and added finishing touches with Nuvo glitter drops.

Once all the elements were ready i assembled my card. The i adhered the flowers such that they have some dimension since i wish to hand the card to the recipient myself.
