AAA Cards sketch challenge with watercolour twist

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using the sketch below and if you want to join with our optional twist, please use watercolour in some way!

For the main image, I used an older stamp from a Hero Arts wood mounted set. It’s actually dated 2006. How can that possibly be 15 years ago? Yikes! Anyway, I stamped it on some watercolour paper and then coloured it using my Twinkling H2Os. This totally shimmers in real life! To complete my card I added a few dots of gold Stickles and added a Simon Says Stamp sentiment.

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog.

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine Collage

Hello again everyone!

I’m back and playing along with a few challenges with this card today – I used the sketch from the Global Design Project challenge and was inspired by the inspiration photo at the Time Out Challenge. I’m also linking this up to the Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge where the theme is ‘love is in the air’.

I used some of my My Mind’s Eye patterned paper mountain for the centre strip and adhered a heart die from Impression Obsession. I was really drawn to the green pops of colour in the Time Out inspiration photo and so I incorporated that into my card by cutting some foliage and it adhering it behind some very old Simon Says Stamp/Kelly Purkey die cut hearts. Finally I added a sentiment by Hero Arts. They’ve actually just released a clear set with this sentiment/font but I went old school and dug out my wood mounted stamp!

CAS Christmas – silhouette

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the challenge at CAS Christmas. The challenge theme is silhouette – so weird that I chose this challenge today after the AAA challenge went live earlier this morning with an optional twist of challenge.

I love that this challenge gives me the opportinuty to play with my festive supplies all year round. Today I chose to use a die set that I didn’t get a chance to play with before Christmas – the WInterhaven Dies set by Catherine Pooler. I used this tag as my inspiration!

The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

The daisies and a bee

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the colour challenge at CAS Cards and Sketches.

I used the wonderful new Bees and Flowers die set from Hero Arts’ most recent release. I coloured the images using distress inks and my Prismacolour pencils.

The sentiment and stencil are also by Hero Arts.

AAA Cards Along the edge challenge with snowflakes twist

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using just one edge of your card. Our optional twist this time is ‘snowflakes’. Uniko is our sponsor.

When I saw the optional twist, I knew I wanted to use my Poppystamps Snowflake Breeze die for this challenge. I couldn’t believe it when I went to my freshly-organised festive die boxes…. the die wasn’t there! Isn’t that always the way?! So then I began a frantic search for the die.. Fortunately it didn’t take too long to find it in a random box of supplies!

I cut the die from some navy cardstock before adhering it to an old ink blended panel. I then put the whole section onto a navy card base, overlapping the die cut along the edge and adding a Hero Arts sentiment.

While I made this card with the portrait orientation in mind, I think it also works as a landscape card… which one do you prefer?

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined by a previous challenge winner, Neeti, who has some really cute inspiration on her blog!

Hope you can play along with us!
