Happy Dad’s Day 2020

Hi Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge ! I rotated and flipped the sketch, I think that’s allowed with this challenge…

I used an older stamp from a Hero Arts set and dies by Elizabeth Craft Designs and Avery Elle to cut  panel I had created with distress oxide inks.

AAA Cards One Image

Hi there!

It’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card with just one image; our optional twist is ‘inspired by TV. Our sponsor is Cas-ual Fridays.

The twist was a bit of a challenge for me as I don’t watch many TV shows. I do try to watch Gardeners’ World, so I pulled out an old Hero Arts silhouette stamp and got to work. I stamped the image in black ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. Taking inspiration from this fun card by Jenn Shurkus, I splattered some coloured ink across the background. I used watered-down Distress crayon rather than distress inks or sprays – I think the colour was more vibrant as a result.

The sentiment is by Clearly Besotted.

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

Hope you can play along with us!

AAA Cards Hugs, Kisses and Fairy Wishes!

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using our sketch. Our optional twist this time is ‘it flies’. Stamplorations is our sponsor.

What do you think of the optional twist? There are so many possibilities aren’t there? Butterflies, birds, planes, hot air balloons, the list is pretty long!

I was originally going to use a plane for my take but as I was looking for a particular sentiment I came across on old Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit which had the theme of fairies! I reckon I’ve had it 2 – 3 years and sadly, I’ve barely used it! Anyway, I thought that a fairy would be perfect for an alternative take on the twist.

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

Hope you can play along with us!

Hello there little butterfly

Hi Everyone!

Next, I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge!

I pulled out my older Basic Grey papers and got to work. I started by adhering the patterned paper banner to my card base and then used the Birch press Design Sparkler Butterfly to cut more Basic Grey papers. I added a butterfly body from a Memory Box butterfly die and completed my card with a Hero Arts stamped sentiment.

Shooting Star

Hi there!

Today I’m playing along with the current Case This Sketch challenge .

I masked off part of my card base and blended some Distress ink stripes. I then cut the Shooting Star die by Technique Tuesday from white glitter card and holographic card and adhered the outline to my card base before inlaying the stars. To complete my card, I added a few extra glitter stars around the main image and a sentiment from Hero Arts!

Thank for stopping by!

Celebrate the Season

Hi Everyone!

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

Using regular distress inks and a spritz or two of water, I stamped the fabulous tree image from my most recent Hero Arts purchase, the fun Meowy Christmas set! I cut it out using the coordinating die and then coloured the baubles with Twinkling H2Os.

I then stamped the Mod Pattern Bold Print background stamp using Pumice Stone distress oxide ink and spritzed it with Pixie Dust. I die cut a square from the stamped panel and adhered it to my base card on top of a smaller square of glitter cardstock. I then adhered my tree using foam squares and applied some red Nuvo glitter drops to each ornament.

I was pondering how to reflect that horizontal strip at the bottom of the card and then I remembered my old Holiday Ribbons wood-mounted set – also by Hero Arts! I seriously can’t believe these were made in 2005! I think I got them much later than that though… Anyway, I stamped the sentiment in the same inks as the tree – it’s always a bit nerve-wracking to use a wood-mounted stamp at the end of a project but luckily it stamped beautifully. Phew!

Thank for stopping by!
