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
hello.png
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.
HTBS1910.JPG
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.

Welcome to a new challenge at AAA Cards.
_148.jpg
This time we have a sketch for you to guide your CAS creation. The optional twist is “Animals”. Here is the sketch and please note that the Sketch can be rotated or flipped..
_148 sketch.jpg
Here’s My take – ( I have flipped the sketch for this one )
Picture5.png
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.
aaa 5 - Copy.JPG
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.

AAA Cards – #146 – Along the edge

Hello There!
Welcome to a new challenge at AAA Cards.
Its time for the next challenge and its perfect for making CAS card.  The challenge is to make a card with something only “Along the Edge” with an optional twist of inspired by a song.
Recently I saw this movie called “Call me by your name”. It’s a beautiful story that touches upon the subject of “love is love”. It’s a story of two men discovering their love for each other and the also the supporting role one of the man’s parents play. I was so touched and inspired by the story and the parenting style.
One of the songs that lingered in my mind and kept on playing in my mind from this movie is “Mystery of love”. I moment i felt the song was fading away in my brain.. i started listening to it in a loop for days together… I confess i am crazy like that.
So i made this card inspired by the song and the movie
Here’s My take : “Rainbow Love”. I support the thought that love is love and everyone should have the freedom to express, experience and feel the affection of the person you love. No one should be discriminated on the basis of who they choose to love. Love is the only bond that can hold all the humankind together and that is what we need in the world all over.
aaa 7.JPG
For this card I got a few inks and a stencil out. I then stencilled the with the inks along the edge the heart shape in rainbow colors.
aaa 7 - Copy (2).JPG  th3DY0M3VN.jpg
As i was inking the card with rainbow hearts i was listening to this very song .
The following lines touched my heart so much ……..
“Oh, will wonders ever cease?
Blessed be the mystery of love
For the sentiment I inked a card stock in diagonal lines with rainbow colors and the die cut the word Hey Love from it. I then adhered the sentiment die cut to the card front to finish the card.

AAA Cards – #143 -One Corner + Flower

Hello There!
Welcome to a new challenge at AAA Cards.
Its time for the next challenge and its super simple. I think its like a sketch for a CAS card and one of the easy ways to maximize the white space.
#143.jpg
The optional twist is to use Flower.  I have incorporated the floral twist as well
Here’s My take :
flower
To make this card all I did was stamp the image of the flower and color it with copic markers.  I then added a few dots and white highlights inspired by Kathy Racoosin. The dots add interest to the image instantly without adding any bulk to the design.
MVIQ6715 - Copy.JPG

I then fussy cut the image went around with a black marker on the edges to cover the white. This helps add a finished look to the image.
