AAA Cards One Inch Strip with small stamps twist

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using a strip of just one inch of your card base only. Our optional twist for this challenge is ‘small stamps’!

Although I have a zillion small stamps, I didn’t actually use them for this challenge. Instead I used parts of a Carabelle Studio background stamp (Circles collage). I stamped various circles from onto an inky background I created with distress inks some time ago, leaving a space in the centre of the one inch strip. I then lifted some ink from the centre of the circles using water.

I was originally going to add a die cut sentiment, but how many sentiment dies do I own that are less than an inch? The answer is not many…. and those that I do have didn’t really work so in the end I went with a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Brush Stroke Messages set which fit perfectly in the space.

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, Asa, who has come lovely cards on her instagram feed!!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!




  1. such a pretty card, it has a luxurious feel to it, both calming black and colourful interest and also texture with the embossing powder?, at least I think that’s what I see…. fab card


  2. Awesome card! Loving your colours and techniques. And well done for locating a sentiment that fits so perfectly – not easy!
