Cards created for the AAA Cards challenge

Happy Anniversary!

Hi everyone!

I am so excited  to tell you that I have joined the AAA Cards design team! You can meet my talented teammates and see their fabulous creations on the AAA Cards blog.

The theme for the next fortnight is RESIST and Happy Little Stampers is our sponsor. For my card, I used a stamp by Seth Apter/Impression Obsession to create my heat-embossed background. I blended distress inks over the top and then rubbed the excess ink from the image. I accidentally used a cloth that I had also used to rub off some perfect pearls on another project and some of the shimmer stuck to my background! Gotta love shimmer! What a happy accident!

Anyway, I cut out some hearts using a Memory Box die and stuck them in the middle of a rectangle that I had embossed on my base card. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by Guest Designer Jasleen from hapilyevacrafter. 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!


Magical Birthday

Hi Everyone!

For today’s card, I paired some new fairy dies and stamps from Poppystamps with a gorgeous background die from Simon Says Stamp. I used some of the scraps from the Nuvo embellishment mousse background that I made a couple of weeks ago, together with some cream shimmery card stock.

I’m entering this into two challenges – the AAA Cards challenge (birthday) and the Less is More challenge (shimmer).

AAA Cards is celebrating its third birthday with a super blog hop and also some fabulous giveaways – check it out! Oh, and you’ll also see a sneak peek of the new DT members…!!

You rock!

Hi everyone!

The current AAA Cards challenge is embossing – could be dry embossing, heat embossing or both! I chose to do both!

I covered a Cuttlebug embossing folder with ink to create the embossed white star background which I then cut using a start Lawn Fawn die. I then covered the stars with some Nuvo Aqua Glimmer Gloss for a bit of shimmer.

I added a sentiment from Krumspring stamps which I had heat embossed using sliver embossing powder.

Thanks for looking!


Bright Hearts


Happy Saturday!

I’m really enjoying Online Card Classes’ ‘Shimmer and Sparkle’ class and today I’ve been playing with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. I made a lot of different backgrounds by sponging the mousse onto cardstock. I also blended a few colours to make my own bespoke mousse!

For today’s card. I cut a Simon Says Stamp die from the various background panels and inserted the coloured hearts into the die cut outline that I’d cut from some black glitzy paper. I flicked some watered-down embellishment mousse onto the card base and added a sentiment from Hero Arts.

I’m entering this into the current AAA Cards challenge (bright and beautiful) and also the SSS Flickr challenge (favourite technique – inlaid die cutting!).

Thanks for stopping by!

A bunny Easter egg!

Hi there!

I finally got round to using this cute Avery Elle Easter image that I have had for a couple of years! Such fun to colour with my Twinkling H2Os! I added a Woodware sentiment and used Lawn Fawn dies to add interest to the background.

I’m entering this into the Seven Hills monthly challenge, the Color Throwdown challenge and also the current AAA challenge (shiny spring).
