You & Me - A Blog Named Hero Monthly Challenge

Hello everyone,

I can't believe we are already halfway through February and halfway through our CAS challenge for A Blog Named Hero with our amazing sponsor Jane's Doodles.  I've had lots of fun playing with these stamps!

This is the card I created for my hubby for Valentine's Day.  I was playing with the stamps and with this one I was stamping off the ink and discovered this little pattern.  This is such a simple and fast card to make it would be great for mass producing for a number of holidays.  You can change up the sentiment and it's good to go. 

So I used the row of hearts and Red Royal Hero Arts ink and used first, second and third generation stamping.  I then stamped the sentiment with Hero Arts black dye ink and then used a black gel pen to draw a square around the card base. 

I want to thank Jane's Doodles for being our sponsor this month, we had lots of fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you again soon.

AAA Cards Game #84 - Watercolour

Hello everyone,

We are back with Game #84 - Watercolour over at AAA Cards

I started out by die cutting the big U twice from watercolour paper and used my Mission Gold watercolours to colour them.  I also die cut two small hearts with white card stock to add to the Us. 

I then stamped the sentiment with black ink directly to the card base.  I added foam tape to the die cut Us and added them to the card bases and took a light grey copic and added a little shadow to give the letter some dimension.  

Our lovely sponsor is Uniko and the winner gets to choose a stamp set (in stock) of their choice. 

We hope you'll play along with us for our Watercolour Game.

AAA Cards - Game #83 Shape your LOVE

Hello everyone,

We are up with a new challenge and love is in the air over at AAA Cards!  

I started with a piece of Bristol smooth card stock and used my Mission Gold watercolours.  I just love the colours and they are so creamy.  Bristol isn't the best for heavy watercolouring but I like the results I get when I use it. 

I then cut a heart out of the top part of the panel with the heart stax dies from MFT and saved the die cut for another project.  I added piece of acetate to the back along with foam tape to create the shaker  and filled it with wonderful sequin goodies from Studio Katia. I then placed the card base on to the shaker part and it was pretty easy to do when the base and panel are the same size.  You can just line them up and press it down.

I then took a scrap piece of white card stock and cut out a banner from WPlus9 and stamped the sentiment from "What does the Fox say" from Studio Katia's November release with Hero Arts black ink. I adhered it to the front panel with Tombow Mono.

Sponsor: HLS - $15 gift certificate

We have an extra option for this challenge, in addition to the love theme you might like to shape up your card. It could be long and thin, a rounded square, circular, heart shaped or any other shape you can imagine, just make sure to keep it LOVE themed and CAS.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.
