AAA Cards – #149 Up to One Third

Hello There!
Welcome to a new challenge at AAA Cards.
#149
This time the idea is to use only up to one third of the card front and leave the rest as empty space with an optional twist of using inlaid die technique.
Here’s My take

For this card I played the alcohol inks by Beyond inks on yupo paper using alcohol ink blending solution to create a colorful  inked panel.

Then on a white card front I die cut the word “hello” using the word die by simon says stamp. I then adhered the inked panel behind the die cut card such that the inked background would show through.

I then adhered the tiny white pieces of the letters of all the letters to on the card front and adhered it to a white card base to finish the card. I love that the sentiment is a part of the design such that it maximizes the white space to create a CAS card.

This card is made using a background stamp from penny black. First I inked the background stamp with distress oxide inks of my choice and then stamped on a card front. I let the inks dry for sometime and then using distress inks inkblending over the stamped images in similar colors.

On a separate white cardstock i stamped this beautiful sentiment by Mudra Stamps. Then i die cut both the card panel and the sentiment strip to have stiched border.

To finish my card i assembled it by adhering the elements using foam tape. I adhered the finished panel on a white card base.

Here’s My take – ( I have flipped the sketch for this one )

For this card I first stamped, colored and fussy cut this adorable image of a storck carrying a baby. Since the legs of the storck are very delicate, I left a white border all along while fussy cutting to give it a look of a die cut image.

I then inked the card front in soft blue ink using a cloud stencil. I used distress inks for this. After the ink was dry, i stamped a simple sentiment and matted the card panel on a black card base to finish the project.

IMG_20190821_020423.jpg

I made this card using the Bloomdala Coffee Cup stamps Digital Stamps + Thanks a latte phrase Die – CUTplorations from STAMPlorations Digital Stamps.  This stamp set comes in sets of coffee cups with stunning designs on them … I would really encourage you to try out these digis by Stamplorations.

I first colored the images with copic markers and added details with prisma color pencils. I cut the colored images and the added a twine in the back to make it into a bookmark.  I then inked the frame with Retro Circles Stencil using the distress inks .

IMG_20190821_020429.jpg

I then cut two slits in the stenciled card base and placed the coffee cup book marks in it. I then die cut the sentiment using the “Thanks a Latte” phrase die in black card stock and adhered it to the card. To finish the card i matted it on black card base leaving a boarder all around.

Here’s PROJECT 2 : Birthday Floral Mug

IMG_1524.JPG

To make this card i first printed one of this mug with floral arrangements from the Cupful of Blossom Digital Stamps from STAMPlorations Digital Stamps on to a cardstock and colored it using copic markers and pencil colors. This stamp set consists of 6 absolutely stunning and beautiful floral arrangements.

Then i took a white card panel and added masking tape to all the four edges. I inked the card stock with distress ink. Once the process of ink blending was over i peeled of the masking tape to revel crisp white edges.

I then adhered the colored image to the inked panel. For the sentiment I used the Birthday word Die – CUTplorations and cut it once on a black card stock and twice on white card stock  I adhered all the die cuts together and finally adhered it to a black card base.
