It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards! This fortnight we’d like you to create a one-layer CAS card; our optional twist is ‘polar animals! Our sponsor is Ink Road.
A few years ago, when I saw how all my sweet, cute stamps were piling up, untouched, I finally realised I’m not a ‘cutesy’ cardmaker…. I LOVE looking at what others come up with but in reality I wasn’t using all those cute images. But you know what it’s like, the new release would come out, I’d buy them before they went out of stock but by the time the stamps arrived, influencers were working with the next cute release and the whole cycle would start again. Seriously, I have so many otters, lions, flamingos, farm animals, sea creature and other critters that I just never touch! I’m very careful nowadays and rarely get swept along with the monthly release FOMO!
But of course, I can’t resist the odd cutesy purchase here and there! For today’s card, I pulled out the sweet Seymore Seal stamp by Impression Obsession. He’s a November purchase and I’m so pleased that I was able to use him for this challenge! After stamping him, I masked the image and then stamped an ice block from a My Favorite Things set. I masked that block and sponged a light layer of Distress Ink across the background. After I removed the masks I coloured the ice and Seymore using my Twinkling H2Os. The sentiment is also by My Favorite Things.
My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Kylie, who has some lovely inspiration on her blog!
Hope you can play along with us!
Thanks for stopping by!
That is a welcome change to all the penguins and polar bears, very clever and sweet card
Well that was certainly a great buy, the seal is just adorable! Love the understated icy colours and beautiful simplicity of your card.
So glad you didn’t give up on cutesy! Love this little guy.
Beautiful CAS card.
