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!

Happy Thoughts Owl

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Hues challenge! The colour palette this time is yellow and kraft.

I actually remembered this challenge deadline on Saturday afternoon and adapted what I was using for my entry – the card I was working on is below. I used the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero November 2020 kit which crossed the Atlantic so fast and arrived yesterday! I was so excited to get it so quickly! Thank you Hero Arts! Anyway, the background die is by Poppystamps and I used a Mama Elephant sentiment.

For my original card using this kit, I added a Hero Arts sentiment from a super sentiment stamp set that I really must use more often – I had forgotten how versatile this set is!

Thanks for stopping by!

Monster Boo!

Hi there!

It’s been a while since I played along with a Case This Sketch challenge and so I decided to hop back into the challenge this week!

I used the brand new Whittle Monsters by Poppystamps. You see that little green monster? He is the whole reason I bought this die set! The set contains a cat as well, but I felt a ghost would be better in my scene here so I added one from my Whittle Ghost set. I created the background using distress oxide inks and a Hero Arts background stamp spritzed with water and the wooded frame is by Memory Box.

Merry Everything baubles

Hi there!

Happy Saturday from a wet and windy London! Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge .

When I saw the sketch, I thought of so many possibilities for those five columns! In the end I opted for a festive theme, but I really must remember to use this sketch again one day and put those other ideas to use!

I used three baubles from a wonderful Simply Graphic retro ornament set that I got a few years ago. I decided to use some of my 6×6 patterned paper mountain – the wood planks background is by My Mind’s Eye and I think the other papers are by Basic Grey. Once I die cut the ornaments I ‘strung’ them with an older Memory Box die and then added a sentiment by My Favorite Things to complete my take on the sketch.

Cranberry Cardinals

Hello again everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown! The palette this week is kraft, cream and cranberry.

I immediately thought of a winter card when I saw the colour combo so I decided to play along with the CAS Christmas card challenge as well because the challenge theme this month is Christmas birds.

I used a older Memory Box die (Hadyn Twigs) and the cardinals from the Simon Says Stamp Chisholm wreath set. I used Fired Brick and Barn Door distress ink to colour the cardinals. They still look more red than cranberry in this photo though!

I added lots of Nuvo drops and a Hero Arts sentiment to complete my take.

Thanks for stopping by!
