AAA Cards Sixth Birthday

Hi there!

We are celebrating over at AAA Cards as our little challenge is six years old!  We’d love for you to join in and celebrate with us by creating a CAS birthday card. We haven’t got sponsors and a blog hop this year, but you could win a £20 gift card to a store of your choice!

For my birthday card, I pulled out my Simply Graphic dies and some panels I created with distress oxide inks and got to work! I’m also playing along with the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge – they have a fabulous colour combo this week.

The vase die is by My Favorite Things and the sentiment is by Memory Box.

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, Sofie who has some lovely cards on her Instagram feed!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Yellow Leaves

Happy Friyay Everyone!

I took today off and just did fun stuff! Of course that meant spending time in my craft room. I decided to play along with the current Color Throwdown challenge (yellow, grey and white).

I used a Taylored Expressions masking stencil with Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink to create a soft panel in the centre of my card. I then used a Simply Graphic die to cut a ink panel I made some time ago and adhered it to my base card. To complete my card, I added a Memory Box sentiment and a few glittery butterflies by Simon Says Stamp.

So special

Hi Everyone!

When I saw the colour combo for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (aqua, teal/turquoise, grey and metallic gold), I immediately started to think about an underwater scene. I decided to use the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge for my take.

I made a background using Peacock Feathers distress ink and then adhered a centrepiece panel created with the Memory Box Seaweed Collage die. I cut the Family of Fish (also by Memory Box) from a background made from Hickory Smoke distress oxide and adhered a little gold fish on top.

I used some older patterned paper for the additional panels in the sketch as my Tumbled Glass distress ink panel looked much darker than I wanted. To complete my card, I added a few gold metallic dots. The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

Blue birthday butterfly

Hi Everyone!

Today, I’m playing along with a couple of challenges – the Color Throwdown challenge (pink, orange and blue) and the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge!

I die cut three strips from some orange/pink patterned paper by Basic Grey and adhered them to my card base.  Then I used the gorgeous Drifting Butterfly die from Memory Box to cut the butterfly from some more Basic Grey paper and added it onto my die-cut strips. Finally I added a few gems and Mama Elephant sentiment to complete my take!

Thank for stopping by!

Big Bundle Heart

Hi there!

Today I’m playing along with the current Case This Sketch challenge and the Color Throwdown Challenge where the combo is navy/dark blue, light blue, pink and white.

To create the base, I embossed three white strips of card with a Creative Expressions embossing folder and adhered them to my card base. I then cut the beautiful Memory Box Bundle Heart die from navy cardstock as well as two panels created using distress ink. I adhered the Bundle Heart die cut to another heart die before inlaying the hearts. To complete my card, I added my favourite Valentine’s sentiment by Reverse Confetti.

Thank for stopping by!

Colourful birthday butterfly

Hi Everyone!

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

I started by adhering some patterned paper to my card base and then added a piece of whit cardstock that I had embossed using a Carabelle Studios folder. I cut the Memory Box Willoughby Butterfly from glitter cardstock and adhered it to the Memory Box Asti Butterfly that I had cut from a panel created with Distress Stains.

I heat embossed a My Favorite Things sentiment on a kraft strip and adhered it to my card before adding the butterfly.

Thank for stopping by!
