I am so happy to join her and the talented design team at Pattie’s creations. Thank you ladies for having me on board.

The Theme for November 2018 is – “BIRTHDAY”

Here’s my card using the “Pattieboop Original Stamp” . Well i wanted to start with this classic Pattie boop image as i just fell in love with her the moment i saw her. Let me introduce to you Pattie boop, if you haven’t met her yet.

IMG_6744.JPGPattieboop is an 11 year old girl who is very opinionated. She was created by Pattie Gomez on September 7, 2009. Pattieboop is an average 11 year old and she loves dressing up. She is very petite in nature but stands tall because her mother always told her that “If you stand tall you will one day become someone important”. Pattieboop always remembers her mother’s words and makes sure she is noticed.

Pattieboop has a favorite pet named Allie. Allie is a slender black 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 Pattieboop with copic markers and fussy cut her. Her hands where behind and to make her look even more adorable, i gave her two  inked die cut balloons to hold for the Birthday Party. Then i adhered the images and the Happy Birthday die cut sentiment on a vellum sheet. I later adhered the vellum on to a patter paper that had colorful sentiment all over. Vellum works great to subtly cover the background to allow focus on the focal image.

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:

I have little boy in my life whom i absolutely love and adore, my son Ishaan.

Here’s my take:

IMG_20180923_185249_Bokeh__01.jpg

IMG_20180923_185328_Bokeh__01.jpgTo make this card I first stamped this image of an adorable boy on to Nenah Solar white card stock (Copic friendly paper) with  memento tuxedo black ink (Copic friendly ink) and colored with copics (you may use any alcohol markers). I then fussy cut the images with a scissors.

I then adhered the fussy cut image with dimensional double sided tape on the white card front before i finally stamped the sentiment  I then adhere the whole panel to a red card base that matches with the shirt of the boy.

 

I hope my card inspires you to get crafting and play along with us at  CASology . Just remember to keep it CAS by following the guidelines on the CASology blog.

My Lil Monster!

Hi there!

Thank you for joining me as I share a card that I made today!!

I first started by stamping and colouring the image of the monster. I added some wink of Stella shimmer on the colored image

Then I stuck post it tape on the card front and inked with the distress inks

I stamped the sentiment before adhering the image with foam tape.

I am playing along with a couple of challenges with this card:

Back to school

Hello there!

I am so glad you are joining me. Today i am playing with the “Pencil in” stampset by Waffl Flowers.  It’s a stampset with a lot of adorable images perfect for school cards.

1.jpg

I started by stamping all the images from the stamp set on to nenah solar white card stock (Copic friendly paper) with  memento tuxedo black ink (Copic friendly ink) and colored with copics (you may use any alcohol markers). I then fussy cut the images with a scissors.

                 3.jpg        2.jpg        4.jpg

5I then used the frame die set by My Favorite things and adhered it on to a white card stock with double layer of foam tape for added dimension. And then adhered all the colored images – some with liquid glue, few with single layer of foam tape and a few with double layer of foam tape to add interest in the card with varied dimension.

I also let a few of the images stick out of the frame a bit for more interest and fun. While coloring i tried to repeat the colors so that everything looks together.

I then matted the card panel on to a black card stock and adhered the matted panel to a white card base.

I had super fun making this card and am going to enter a couple of challenges.

Photo inspiration Challenge #455 at Just us girls– inspired by the “back to school” theme for my card, usage of kraft, white and black card stocks and the sentiment. inspired by the different sections in the photo i used this frame to divide my card into small sections.

Challenge #351 Back to school at The Paper Shelter – This challenge inspired the school theme and the sentiment of my card.

Challenge # 56 at Words 2 Craft By – School theme

Will you succeed? You will, indeed! (98 and 3/4% guaranteed.) Kid, you’ll move mountains.”

These words inspired the school theme card with all the kids. This Dr. Seuss quote motivates and assures them of success in any field they choose. Inspires the kids to dream big.  Inspired by the quote i added various elements like black board, lab beakers, colors, scales, variety of books etc.. And symbolic to the kids moving mountains, i added the globe is such a way the it seems the kids are on top of the word.. Lol (atleast in my crazy mind) .

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 480 –  Back to School

“back to school” inspires the theme and look of my card. It also inspires the sentiment.

Please do let me know what you think about this card. I love and appreciate your comments and thoroughly enjoy reading those.

Happy crafting !!

Sending Hugs

Bharati nayudu Hugs CAS card

Hi There!

Sharing a card that i made with my son. He always loves to help.  So we colored this cute lil piggy with copics and masked before we stenciled with distress inks. We really loved the way this cutie was hugging the heart and thought the sentiment ‘sending hugs’ matched.

My son is actually recovering from cold and this crafting time helped him distract and feel better for sometime. I strongly believe that crafting has a very calming effect and is one of the best way to bond with kids.

We are playing along with CASology – Hugs challenge

I hope you liked the card as much as we enjoyed making it.

Hugs from both of us! Have a great day.
