Day 10 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year!

The Day 10 sponsor was Simon Says Stamp. Now, I have a LOT of Simon Says Stamp goodies and absolutely adored Shari’s amazing inspiration that she shared on the SSS blog. Here is my take using a Gemini embossing folder, snowflake dies by SSS and a Penny Black sentiment. I even got a chance to use those over-looked Prima flowers and a few pearls!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 7 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year!

The sponsor for Day 7 was Sunny Studio Stamps. I don’t have many of their products and when I saw the tag that Joyce made, I decided to substitute the little lights for a fabulous ornament string by Penny Black. I kept the same colour combo and used my Twinkling H2o paints to colour the ornaments.

The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by!

Adventurous kitty

Hello friends!

Today, I’m playing along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge which has another super combo – orange, brown, moss green and cream.

I decided to use an old favourite for my take – the Tree-heart stamp from Penny Black. I then spent a good few minutes over-thinking ‘moss green’. I have a Twinkling H2O paint that’s actually called moss green, but is much more of a yellow-green than the inspiration card. In the end, I settled on two shades of green Twinkling H2O and I think they worked well. Once I finished colouring, I decided I wanted to add a little something extra to the image… I came across the Poppystamps kittens dies and decided to use a couple, coloured after my parents’ cats…. one of whom has definitely been known to get himself stuck up a tree!

To complete my card, I added a few brown splatters and a sentiment by Simon Says Stamp.

Prestigious deer

Hi Everyone!

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

I created an ink-blended panel with some distress oxide inks and then stamped the gorgeous Impression Obsession Vintage tree background. Oh how I love this stamp – I wanted it so much last Christmas but couldn’t find it anywhere – I actually ended up buying it at Simon Says Create in March – I KNEW I’d use it this Christmas!

I cut the fabulous Penny Black Prestige die from glitter card and adhered it to a circle of vellum.

I couldn’t decide where to place my sentiment so in the end I decided to leave it blank. I’ll probably add a sentiment strip before I send it but I’m not completely sure about that!

Thank for stopping by!

Snowflake wishes

Hi Everyone!

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

I had fun playing with products with a lot of different companies for my take – the large snowflake is by Bright Rosa whilst the smaller snowflakes are from My Favorite Things. I used a heart stencil from Simon Says stamp with a baby wipe to lift ink from the blended strip and stamped a sentiment from an older Penny Black set.

I’m also entering this into the current CAS Stencil challenge where the challenge is to use a baby wipe.

Thank for stopping by!

Hi there!

It’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards! This fortnight we have a sketch for you and the optional twist is animals. Our sponsor is Craftyscrappers

I decided to use the Penny Black FeLINE die so first of all, I created a wall for them to sit on using a My Favorite Things stencil and some distress ink. I then created a small section of sky before adhering the cat die. I played around with various sentiments but in the end I decided to leave the card blank. I must say these cats remind me of my team mate Maaike’s cats – so this card may end up in her mail box one day!

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!
