Here’s My take :
VEKG8214.JPG
To make this card I stamped the image of this adorable doggy riding on its scooter.  I then colored the image with copic marker and fussy cut the image. I went around the edges of the cut image with a black marker to give it a finished look.

I then inked  up  a white card stock with some greens and die cut grass panels with it. I also stamped the sentiment on one of the grass panels.
I finally adhered the colored image of  the critter riding the scooter and the grass panels with some foam tape to add dimension. Finally I matted the entire card panel to a black cardstock before adhering it to a card base

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.

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.

Next on a white card panel, I stamped the sentiment and added a few dots with nuvo drops.

1a.JPG
To make this card I first die cut the candles using the MFT birthday candle dies and inked them up with distress inks. I also doodled on the candle with white pen to add interest.
CMNH1428.JPG

Once the candles were ready, on a white card panel that i die cut from the Avery elle wonky rectangular border inks, I added the sentiment from Birthday wishes stamp set by mama elephant.

CIPG0706.JPG

After the sentiment was in place, I adhered the candles using foam tape. I also added glossy accents on the red hearts in the candle flame.

AAA Cards – #140 – Up to One Third

Hello There!
Welcome to a new challenge at AAA Cards. Happy Mother’s Day to all the lovely ladies..
#140.jpg
The optional twist is to use bright colors and i am sure the pop of colors will look amazing against the crisp whites.
Here’s My take :
XIBA2356.JPG
To make this card I first put a masking tape to mark the area from where i wanted to ink the panel. I then inked up the bottom area of the card with bright colors. I used inks by Tubby Craft for this card as i really like how vibrant they are.
GQHU0361.JPG

Once the inks were dry, I heat embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder.

Finally i matted the panel with a back card and adhered it on a white card base and added a few white highlights.

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 is Clean and Simple – CAS.

AAA Cards – #139 – Sketch + Optional Twist Shaker

Hello There!
Welcome to a new challenge at AAA Cards. This time we are shaking things a bit with our CAS game #139. We have CAS sketch for you to use for the next fortnight and an amazing optional twist of chosen by DT Ksenija.
#139.jpg
Here ‘s the sketch and please remember you can flip it as well.
#139 sketch.jpg
The optional twist of Shaker was picked by our super talented DT Ksenija. You have to check her blog for amazing inspiration and a huge number of tips.
Here’s My take :
1.JPG
To make this card I first stamped in black this adorable and fun image of a monkey from the chunky monkey stamp set by Sugar Pea Designs. I then colored the monkey with alcohol color makers. I also stamped a few bananas and colored them from the same stamp set. I fussy cut all the images and kept them ready.
2.JPG
I used a square shaker pouch by MFT Stamps and created the shaker element on the card. The sequins used here are by Ranganjali. In the shaker pouch I let the bananas hang using an invisible thread. This way the bananas don’t fall to the bottom of the square window but hang and are more visible. For the background of the shaker window i inked a white card stock with blue distress inks.
3.JPG
Once the shaker window was made, i stamped the sentiment in black from the same stamp set and adhered the cute monkey on top of the window. I know the monkey is hanging from nothing and is there in middle of the air. But i did not want to added anything more to preserve the CAS look.

4.JPG

Finally i matted the panel with a back card and adhered it on a white card base and added a few white highlights.

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 is Clean and Simple – CAS.
