Here ‘s my take:

bharati nayudu winne and walter christmas card

For my card I first stamped this adorable image of owls from Happy Owlidays stampset by Winnie & Walter on to nenah solar white paper with black memento ink and colored with copics in red and green for the Christmas . I added a few highlights with the white gel pen before fussy cutting the cute couple.

As a finishing touch i inked a stripe of cardstock with red distress ink and adhered on the left side of the card. Just a lil something to add to the design.

I really love how cute the owls look propped up on the branch and how the ornaments hang.

I hope my cards inspires you to play along AAA Cards challenge and gets you crafting to make some handmade happiness for your loved ones. Just remember to KEEP IT CAS (Clean And Simple).

AAA Cards #118 Frames

Hello There !

Happy Sunday and i am so glad your joining me today for the next AAA Cards Challenge!

The theme this time is FRAMES.

IMG_1684

Isn’t it just perfect to inspire a Clean and Simple design. Here are a few ideas to help you start – frame your focal point using die cuts, stamping around the focal point, use the stamp of a frame, stamp your sentiment inside a frame, create a scene inside a window or frame your image with the sentiment. Whatever be the technique you use, keeping the design framed and contained will surely enhance the CAS look and maximize the white space. So join us with your creative take on the theme FRAMES.

Here’s my take on the challenge:

Bharati Nayudu Lawn Fawn stamps Frames and seasons tweetings AAA Cards CAS CardFor my card I first stamped and colored this adorable frame from the Flirty frames stamp set by Lawn Fawn. Then I stamped the tiny branch and the cute lil birdie from the Season’s Tweetings stamp set by Lawn Fawn. This sweet lil bird reminded me of one of my favorite childhood cartoon characters – Tweety. So I colored it yellow and gave it a blue cap. I wanted to make the branch appear as if it was somewhere high and so I masked the bird and the branch to ink a few clouds in the background of the frame. I finished the card by stamping a few pretty flowers and the sentiment in scripty font from the Flirty frames stamp set by Lawn Fawn.

Hello There!

First of all thank you to all the love AAACards received for it birthday recently. Our gallery is full is amazing cards and we were thrilled at the overwhelming response. I am sure you all enjoyed playing along with us as well.

Now, I had once read somewhere that life without geometry is just pointless !!! lol!

Well we at AAACards have a point to make so we are back with the next challenge theme which is  – GEOMETRIC

The moment i saw this cue word the Laura Basen fan inside me got excited. So i went with iank blending using stencils.  Incidentally i was listen to this song ” I am in love with the shape of you…” while making this card and went with the same for the sentiment. Here ‘s my take

bharati CAS geomerty card.jpg

I learnt at AAACards that one of the ways to have a good CAS design is to have a lot of empty white space and crisp clean lines.

Here is another card with the same panel and remember, white space need not be white, as long as its empty and un-patterned.

AAA Cards inspired by nature

Hello there,

Welcome to yet another awesome challenge at AAA Cards. The theme this fortnight is “Inspired by Nature”

Here’s my take

The moment I saw the word nature, I knew i wanted to use flowers on my card. The adorable image of tulips has been in my stash for a while and always wanted to use it.

I am going for a super CAS design. I stamped and heat embossed the image and the sentiment . I then coloured the flowers n leaves with zig real brush markers. I added a strip of black and white on the side for added interest.

I hope my card inspires you to play along AAA Cards challenge and gets you crafting to make some handmade happiness for your loved ones.

AAA Cards #108 All You Need Is Love

Hello There,

#108

It’s the month of valentine’s day and all you need is love. That’s exactly the challenge at AAA Cards this fortnight. Here’s my take on the challenge.

Bharati nayudu AAA Cards CAS love.pngSince the badge graphic says its all about love, I was inspired to have a cluster of hearts and for the sentiment – just the word love.

SXES4219For this card, I first cut the cluster of hearts using the ‘clipping hearts’ die by Simon Says Stamp from a deep red card stock and then from my white card front. I then in laid the red hearts into the white card front, that fit right into the gap.

For the sentiment I die cut 3 times the word love using the ‘hey love’ word die by Simon Says Stamp.

Then all that was left was to adhere the finished card front to a card base that matched the color of hearts. I really resisted adding clear sequin to this card to keep it really simple.
