AAA Cards Along the edge challenge with beach twist

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using just one edge of your card. Our optional twist this time is ‘beach’. Stamplorations is our sponsor.

We had a beach theme back when I had just started on the AAA challenge blog – see the card I made at the time here. I was tempted to use those fabulous beach huts again but then as I was reorganising my craft room, I came across the beautiful Stampin Up Summer By the Sea set that I’ve had for well over a decade. I don’t think I’ve ever used the boy/sandcastle stamp and thought it would be perfect for this challenge! And I love inking up those wood-mounted stamps, there is nothing like them! Of course cling and clear stamps are much easier to use nowadays with the MISTI and other stamp platforms! I coloured the image with my Twinkling H2O paints and added a sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp set to complete my card.

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined by a previous challenge winner, Vicky, who has some lovely inspiration on her blog!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!




  1. The most gorgeous stamp Lucie and perfect for this challenge. Love how you’ve made it look so nostalgic with your soft pastel colours.


  2. Thanks for the shout out Lucie! I love how we can so often find the exact stamps we need right there in our stashes! You’ve made this lovely image look so fresh and I love those soft colours you’ve used. Vicky x
