Deer, I love you

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. This fortnight’s theme is ink blending and Stamplorations is our sponsor.

I love ink blending especially with distress inks and distress oxides. I’ve been blending a lot of autumnal/Halloween colours recently so I wanted to use some different colours for this card. I ended up using Tattered Rose, Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio. Don’t think I’ve ever used this combo before!

I used the Poppy Stamps Playful Deer Collage die to cut my card base and then stuck the blended background behind it. To finish off my card, I added a Winnie & Walter sentiment and a few hearts that I had cut from glitter cardstock.

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by Guest Designer Kaja from Kajcyika Crafts. She has some amazing creations on her blog, so please drop by her site!

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



  1. This card so looks like it was made the other way round to your description – I mean the blending looks 3D with the deer cut out from it, but no I see it now you’ve explained. Bit like one of those magic puzzle pics. Super card!


  2. i think it’s a wonderful combo. It took me a moment to realize the negative of the diecut, I thought it was an iris flower at first …duh..anyway beautfil frosty winter scene!
