AAA Cards - Challenge #96 - Summer Fun

Hello everyone!

We have a new challenge up over at and it's Summer Fun!  To me summer is all about ice cream so that's what I wanted to do for my card.

I stamped the ice cream in the middle so it would be in the front and then did some masking for the rest.  I added the sentiment with black ink. I then coloured them in with my copics and used a white gel pen and added it to the corner of the ice cream and then added glossy accents.  And this time I didn't stick my finger in it before it was dry!  LoL!

I was on a role and created a second card.  I took a few inks and stamped the pineapple in rainbow order and then added the sentiment to the middle with black ink.  

Our fabulous sponsors this fortnight is Happy Little Stampers for a $20 gift certificate

We hope you'll head over to our blog and play along!

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!

AAA Card Challenge #95 - Rainbow

Hello everyone!

We are back with a new challenge and it's RAINBOW - over at AAA Cards

Our sponsor is Stamplorations for a product specified by Shery, value up to $15 + 10% coupon offer for players

This card was a fun card to do.  I just purchase the Tombow brush markers which came in at my local Michaels and I was very excited and I thought I would use them on my card for today.

I used the basic colours to create the rainbow effect on my card and I stamped it onto a piece of white card stock and then placed the sequins where I wanted them but didn't adhere them yet.  I then added the sentiment with black ink and then adhered the sequins and the card is done.  Quick one that can be mass produced as well with different sentiments. 

I was also able to do a video for you so I hope you'll head over to my YouTube channel and have a look.  

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.

A Blog Named Hero Mid-month Inspiration

Hello everyone,

I'm back to share my card for our mid-month inspiration over at A Blog Named Hero. We are so excited to be working with Winnie & Walter this month to create projects with Hero Arts as I'm sure you are all aware that they have some fantastic products.  

This sequin pack came with my order and they are so pretty and with this stamp set I knew this is what I wanted to do.  

I stamped and heat embossed the image on to vellum.  Then I started making my shaker by cutting out the centre with a rectangle die and then adhered the heat embossed vellum to create the window.  I then added foam tape around the edge to create the well to put the sequins. 

I then added the shaker front to an A2 card base and then cut out the Contrast die from royal blue card stock out of my stash and adhered it to the front and called this card done.  I almost added some sequins or gems to it but I thought that it was perfect just the way it was.  

Thanks for joining us for our collaboration challenge with Winnie & Walter.

AAA Cards - Challenge #94 - One Layer on a Coloured Card Base Collaboration with Less is More

Hello everyone,

We are back with another game but something a bit different. We are joining Less is More and we are very excited. 

I used a Fireworks die from Lawn Fawn and cut that on to the coloured card base. I stamped the sentiment with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and added some sparkle with a  Spectrum Noir glitter brush marker.  

We would love if you headed on over and visit both blogs and link up your cards. On our blog you have a change to win a $20 gift card to the Happy Little Stampers shop. We always enjoy seeing all the wonderful CAS cards you create.

AAA Cards - Challenge #93 - Words Take Centre Stage

Hello everyone!

AAA Cards is  are back with new challenge and We'd like to see words, sentiments or quotes as the main focus of your card.

For my card today I chose to use the YOU die and cut that out of a patterned paper that I created from my stash.  The sentiment I used was a bit too long for the space so I cut it in half, don't worry I was gentle, and the added it on two lines.

I then added a few embellishments I found at Michaels and added them because they had a purple hue to them.  Unfortunately that didn't show in the pictures.  

Our lovely sponsor for this game is Uniko and the winner has a choice of an in stock stamp set!

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