Shaken not stirred

Hi, here’s yet another entry for the AAACard Challenge inspired by films

I think we all have grown up watching generations of 007 movies packed with adventure, action n thrill.

Over the years the actors playing the classy super spy changed, locations changed, Villians changed,  but what remained constant was this man’s drink n the precise manner in which he wants it made…

So here’s to Mr. Bond, James bond.

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.

Linking this card toHSL anything thing goes with dies challenge

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 :

  2. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – It’s written in the stars
  3. Take time out challenges – # 92 Inspired by words challenge : Paint The Flying Spirit Of The Birds Rather than its Feathers

The BFG – Shine from within

IMG_20170727_002642_208

My son and I love books by Roald Dahl. So when @taketimeoutchallenges came up with a challenge inspired by a quote from one of his books, we were more than excited. Yes, you guessed it right! I love sharing my crafting challenge entries with my son and husband. They are always curious to know what the challenge is about, give their ideas or know what i am planning to do and at the end of each challenge take a look at the winning entries. We three are new to card challenges and blogging and hence super excited.

The timeoutchallenge #88 is an ‘Inspired by Words’ challenge. The words come from the Children’s novel ‘Twits’ by Roald Dahl:‘If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely’

Its all about ‘shine’, ‘sunbeams’ and ‘good thoughts’. I feel The BFG is one the characters by Roald Dahl who really shines from within, What do you say ? So i made this card featuring him.

The Roal Dahl books that we have are a gift to us from Ms. Anita Rao. These were her son’s books who thoroughly enjoyed reading those as a kid. This card is for her and the sentiment on the card is very apt to thank her for all her kindness.

I too very actively share my son’s books with the kids i know (something i learnt from Ms. Anita Rao). By doing this, my son learnt the pleasure of sharing and not getting attached to material. He is also quite comfortable in accepting used items and appreciates that by sharing and reusing, we take a step closer towards a greener earth. The books too are happy to be loved by many kids.

If we can help children (or even adults) inculcate good reading habit, that would truly be the nicest gift we could ever give.

Btw, when my son saw the finished card, he was particularly amused by how tiny lil Sophie’s image looked. Lol!

Well i really enjoyed making this card and playing along with timeoutchallenge #88.Thanks #timeoutchallenges for such a wonderful challenge.

Hope you had fun reading this post have a happy day.
