Happy Little Stampers

Enjoy your trip

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards and this fortnight’s theme is ‘on the move’. Our sponsor is Happy Little Stampers. You may have seen that Kylie has very sadly decided to close down. She has a closing down sale at the moment – amazing bargains to be had there.

I decided to use a stamp from Happy Little Stampers’ Wish You Were Here set to create a CAS bon voyage card. I just love the detail on the London skyline stamp! I heat embossed the image and then lightly blended some distress ink over the background. I added a small sentiment from Simon Says Stamp and a little die cut heart to finish off the card.

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by the talented Kim from Joyful Creations as our Guest Designer. She has some fabulous creations – you must pay her a visit!

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards and this fortnight we have a sketch for you. Our sponsor is Happy Little Stampers.

I love this CAS sketch – lots of ‘white space’ with a great focal point! As we’re now into September (how did that happen?), I decided to use a stamp from Happy Little Stampers’ Doodled Flowers set and create an autumn-themed card. I had such fun using my Altenew watercolour paints again. Love how vibrant they are!

I then cut a circle from a square piece of white card to create a frame to go on top of the leafy background. I knew I wanted to raise the frame a little, but didn’t want to use funky foam. Instead, I created another frame from card and adhered one on top of the other to give my card some very subtle dimension. Finally, I added a Happy Little Stampers sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!
