G’day Mate!

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. This fortnight’s theme is ‘Creatures great or small’ and Happy Little Stampers is our sponsor.

There were so many stamps I could’ve chosen for this challenge – I have quite a few fabulous animal layering stamps and cute critter stamps, I was spoilt for choice! In the end I chose the amazing Ellen Hutson/Avery Elle United We Flourish set – G’day Mate. I wanted to use the kangeroo (seriously the cutest kangeroo I’ve seen!) and also incorporate the baby koala… all while keeping the card CAS…

I smooshed some distress ink onto some watercolour paper and sprayed it with a perfect pearls mist. It shimmers so much in real life – so hard to capture in a photo. I then stamped, cut and coloured the images using my beloved twinkling H2Os.

I like the sentiments on the set, but really wanted one that said ‘G’day mate’ – so I used wording from two of the stamps and some post-it notes as I couldn’t bring myself to cut up the sentiment stamps!!

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by Guest Designer Marge from margecrafts. I’m sure many of you already know Marge – one of the sweetest crafters I have met online! This challenge is perfect for her as she creates the most beautiful critter cards – please drop by her site to see them and many more!

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!



  1. Hello Lucie! I have a difficult time capturing the shimmer and sparkle too. But, your card is super sweet. Those creatures (critters) look like they are enjoying their time together. Makes me smile. Hugs, Tracie


  2. Such lovely card, Lucie. Background color is so pretty and I love how you composed kangaroos and butterflies. Thank you for introducing me as well. You are so sweet. Marge


  3. Such a sweet card! The smooshed background is a perfect backdrop for those adorable kangaroos.
