Sharing a card that i made with my son. He always loves to help. So we colored this cute lil piggy with copics and masked before we stenciled with distress inks. We really loved the way this cutie was hugging the heart and thought the sentiment ‘sending hugs’ matched.
My son is actually recovering from cold and this crafting time helped him distract and feel better for sometime. I strongly believe that crafting has a very calming effect and is one of the best way to bond with kids.
We are playing along with CASology – Hugs challenge
I hope you liked the card as much as we enjoyed making it.
Hugs from both of us! Have a great day.
If I were to pick only one of my cards that i could give anyone and everyone, i will pick this one. This is what i want to tell myself and everyone else as well.
I seem to be falling more and more in love with CAS style of card making. There is something very soothing about the uncluttered white space.
To make this one layer CAS card, I first stamped the big bold YOU with distress oxide ink. I then stamped the coordinating sentiments with black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. To finish the card i adhered it on a black card base leaving a slight border all around.
I am playing along with:
CASology challenge #281 – “Encourage”
Always Fun Challenges #40 – one layer
Have a great day!
I am playing along as the Guest Designer at CASology Challenge this week and I am on cloud nine. CASology is one of the challenges where my work has been acknowledged on several occasions by the talented DT members and i am forever grateful for their constant encouragement and support.
The cue word this week is Kindness. The challenge is to make CAS style cards, so do check out the CAS guidelines from their website.
So here’s my take on the cue word – A bit of dimension, glitter and gloss make a CAS card extra beautiful against the white space. I feel being kind is supper cool and hence i went with cool colors. Also to match the word difference in the sentiment i went with a unique die cut pieces.
The clean and simple way of making a card always highlights the message and the feeling of happiness / kindness that we show each other by giving handmade cards and items. This is the perfect opportunity to spread some kindness around. Thank and acknowledge others for their kindness.
I hope my card inspires you to play along CASology challenge and gets you crafting to spread kindness around. Do visit their blog for more inspiration from the super talented Design Team. Many thanks to the lovely ladies at CASology for the honor.
Hope you liked my card. Do let me know by leaving me comments. I really love reading them.
