Autumn handful

Hi Everyone!

Today I’m playing along this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

I was originally going to create a cluster of little Christmas trees but I suddenly thought of the gorgeous elements in the Pretty Pink Posh Autumn Wreath set. I’ve used the wreath quite a few times, but those little elements are barely used! So I chose a few, embossed them in gold and coloured them using my Twinkling H2Os.

I smooshed some distress ink onto a card base and added a few paint splatters. I adhered the Hero Arts sentiment and then arranged my autumn elements!

Such a fun card to create!

Thank for stopping by!

Inkspiration

Happy Friyay friends!

Today I’m playing along with the Inspirational challenge – what an inspirational photo challenge!

I’d been planning what to make since I saw the image last weekend but the week has been crazy and I had to make my entry quite quickly this evening to meet the challenge deadline.

I’m not sure I did it justice… it didn’t really turnout as I’d hoped….

Anyway, I used dies by Simon Says Stamp and Poppystamps and a Hero Arts sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy thoughts of autumn

Hi Everyone!

Next up today is what I created for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

What a fun sketch! Loved seeing all the creative inspiration over at the challenge blog and in the end I decided to use my favourite My Monthly Hero kit. It’s from September 2018 but I didn’t actually buy it until earlier this year – I was so happy to be able to purchase it so many months after it went on sale!

I coloured the little images with my Twinkling H2Os (just look at that shimmer!) before adhering them to an embossed panel. I added a sentiment from Mama Elephant to finish off my card.

Faux Metal Etching

Hi Everyone!

I’ve been itching to play with the faux metal etching technique that Jennifer McGuire demonstrated a few weeks ago and today was the day! I used some silver matte mirror card and the Simon Says Stamp Brushed Branches background stamp. What a fun technique – but so very difficult to get a decent photo.

I used the sketch from the current Inspire Create Challenges and added a die cut sentiment and leaves (also by Simon Says Stamp).

I’m also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge where the theme is Autumn.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Autumn Border

Hi there!

I can barely believe that it’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards! The weeks seem to fly by, don’t they? This fortnight we’d like you to create a one-layer CAS card and the optional twist is autumn. Our sponsor is Winnie & Walter.

Quite honestly, I’m a bit annoyed with myself. I love Winnie & Walter and had previously thought of the perfect set that I could use for my card. I completely forgot they were our sponsor when I made the card last week and ended up using the new Pretty Pink Posh Fall Borders stamp set instead.

If I get time, I’ll try to make another card with the set I’d planned to use.

Back to today’s card. I actually love making one-layer cards and this was so much fun to make! I coloured it using my Twinkling H2O paints. I decided to use a Hero Arts sentiment but wanted to use an ink that was the same colour as some of the leaves. I was so chuffed to discover a perfect match (Cosmic Berry) – love my Altenew inks. I seem to have a colour for every occasion!

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined by the super talented Joy D’Souza – you have to visit her blog – it’s jammed-packed with inspiration!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Autumn Lanterns

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge

Narelle has created a fabulous sketch that was just crying out for me to dip into my patterned paper mountain again – so I did!

I used the fabulous Chinese Lantern die from Poppystamps – it actually has 3 stems but I cut off one stem so that the die cut aligned with the card elements.

The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

Thank for stopping by!
