Cards created for the AAA Cards challenge

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).

Thanks for stopping by!


Starting on my Easter cards


Happy Saturday everyone!

It’s time for me to start on my Easter cards and made this one using a Memory Box die, lots of Pretty Pink Posh sequins and a stencil by The Crafter’s Workshop. I’m entering this into two challenges – AAA Cards (die cuts) and Less is More challenge (pastels).

Thanks for stopping by!
