AAA Cards Challenge #104 - Christmas

Hello everyone,

We are back with a new challenge over at AAA Card and it's looking a lot like Christmas!  And it's a good thing because that's what our challenge theme is.

For my card, I used a set from Lawn Fawn with a light grey ink I stamped a little pattern from the bottom left corner to the top right. I stamped and coloured the adorable puppy, hat and bone and coloured him in with my copics.  I added some applique to the hat to give it interest.

I cut out a banner from red cardstock and stamped the sentiment in white ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I popped the images and banner on foam tape and called it done. 

Uniko is our wonderful sponsor this challenge and the winner has a choice of an in-stock stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!

A Blog Named Hero - Mid month inspiration

 Hello everyone

We are halfway through our Copy a Designer challenge with Neat & Tangled over on A Blog Named Hero.

I copied Jessica's card from her July 19 post and you can see it here.

I too a piece of bristol cardstock and stamped the images from the Get Yeti stamp set and heat set it with white embossing powder.  Then I coloured in the images with my zig clean colour brush markers.

I cut out the panel with the Hero Arts postage stamp nesting die set and added some white spots with a gel pen and added a few black gems. I stamped the sentiment with white embossing powder and cut in the flag ends and popped it up with foam tape.  

I then took some white fun foam and added it to a blue piece of cardstock and then added it to an A2 sized card base and this card is done.  

I hope you'll join us for our challenge!  We love seeing what you created!

AAA Cards Challenge #103 - Celebrate

Hello everyone,

We are back again with a new challenge - Challenge 103 - CELEBRATION.  It's all about celebration, so get out those stamps and dies and let's see what you're celebrating.

Can you guess what I'm celebrating?  Yes, that's right, Christmas!!!  I always say that I'm going to get a head start on my Christmas cards and every year I bearly get any done at all.  

So this year I made sure that I did and I started with this guy.  Isn't he just the cutest? 

I stamped and coloured him with my copics and die cut him out.  I had added black gel pen to his eyes but I messed one of them up so I had to add little googly eyes to cover it up so I wouldn't have to start over.  I added sparkle and some Novo crystal glaze to the little lights.  Before popping him up on foam tape I added a few trees to the background with green ink. I then stamped the sentiment with black ink and called it done. 

Our wonderful sponsor is Happy Little Stamper and one lucky person will win a $20 gift certificate

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.

The Male Room Guest Designer - Challenge #8 - Paper Piecing

Hello everyone,

I'm excited to be joining The Male Room as their guest for Challenge#8 - Paper Piecing. 

On to my card. I love Lawn Fawn and those who follow me, kind of get that feeling.  This card is no different.  I have waited a long time for the Happy Harvest set but I was finally able to have it in my collection.

I started out with the leafy tree backdrop an ink blended the leaves with red, green orange distress inks, brown distress ink for the tree and two different greens for the stitched hills. I cut out a piece of watercolour pattern paper and used it for the fall sky and added it to the card base. I took the corn stocks and stamped them in the background with a light yellow ink and stamped the sentiment from the same set with black ink.

For my scarecrow, I used patterned paper to piece his hat, overalls and shirt. To make the pieces look seamless I ran my Momento black marker around the edges to hide the white of the paper.  I then colouring in his face, hands and feet with my copics. I then popped him up with foam tape and added him to the card and called it done.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  We hope you'll join us for our paper piecing challenge.

Happy crafting!!
