CASology #328 Smile

Hello There!

Welcome back to the CASology challenge. The moment i see a handmade card , what comes to my face a big simile. There is simply something lovely about holding a handmade card in your hand. Don’t you agree. This week the cue word at CASology is SMILE

week 328 - smile

Here’s my take:

e4c22f01-4e3e-4e8d-9f5c-d889a12cf3bf

To make this card i first stamped and colored this cute image by Gerda Steiner Designs with alcohol markers and fussy cut it.

img_0117-1

Next die cut a tag in white and adhered the peeking fox to one side of the tag and stamped the sentiment on the tag in blue to match with the color of the scarf the fox is wearing. I threaded the tag with white and blue twine to match the color of the stamping and the white background. I finally added a few hearts and adhere the tag on the card with foam tape for added dimension.

What’s your take on this lovely cue word? I am so eager to see.

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!)

Here’s My Card with the theme and the twist

10754797088_img_0775

Masking is one of the best techniques to create a CAS card and to cluster images on a card. To make this card i used masking tape as well as masking paper, inks by tubby craft and stampset by CAS-ual Fridays.

bf6c5753-cb03-4d27-b259-086d2ccb361a

I first stamped the image in shades of pink using inks by Tubby craft and then masked it completely before stamping the image in shades of blue inks by Tubby Craft. I then masked both the images and used a masking tape before i inked the lower part of the card front.

I finally stamped the sentiment from the stampset and adhered the card front to a soft pink card base.

CASology #Arithmetic

Hi There

Thank you for joining me for this week’s challenge at CASology!

The cue word is Arithmetic. Interesting isn’t it!

I made a retirement card for a senior at work. Here’s my take

VDOGE2310

I love try out different medium, techniques and products. I guess all crafters are. Sometimes i wonder if the love for the products gets my mojo going. Does this happen to you. Do you make cards just to use / try some new products. I recently bought black embossing paste and i had to immediately use it, before i could break a rash or something. Lol!

TRLRE0384

To make this card I applied the embossing paste on the card using a stencil by Tim Holtz. The texture and dimension of the embossing paste add such lovely interest. I then added the strip of black card stock with the sentiment heat embossed in white. This sentiment is by Mudra Stamps. I love the font on the sentiment.

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:

CASology #Punctuation

Hello There!

Thank you for joining me for the next CASology challenge. The next cue word is “punctuation”. We are expecting some super interesting takes n designs in our gallery

Here’s my card

To make this card I first inked the edge with distress inks n a stencil

I have fallen in love with using big bold sentiments, especially on a CAS design. This bold “yes you can!” stamp is by Simon say Stamp. I felt that the exclamation mark is perfect for the cue word this week. So I stamped it with black ink. Finally, i adhered the card front to a black card base.

I then added a strip of patterned paper on the edge for added interest.

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.
