AAA Cards One Corner challenge with old supplies twist

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using one corner of your card base only; our sponsor is Uniko. We’d also love you to consider using your older supplies for this challenge – and that’s our optional twist!

I used the Williow Tree die from Memory Box for my card. It’s not from my oldest supplies – sadly none of them really fit with what I wanted to create for the ‘one corner’ challenge…. but it’s from 2016 so still 4 years old. I cut it from a panel I’d created using Distress Oxide inks and adhered it to my card base. I then added a few butterflies from Simon Says Stamp and a Clearly Besotted sentiment to complete my take on the theme.

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, Marga, who has some lovely inspiration on her blog!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Super Day

Hi Everyone!

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

I started by stamping the My Favorite Things Romantic Script background on a kraft background which I then cut using a curved die.

I cut and coloured the Delightful Daisies image by Poppystamps before adhering it to the kraft background.

To complete my card, I added a sentiment from Right At Home stamps and a few Nuvo drops.

Thank 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.

Happy Friyay friends!

Today I’m playing along with the Inspirational challenge – what an inspirational photo challenge!

I’d been planning what to make since I saw the image last weekend but the week has been crazy and I had to make my entry quite quickly this evening to meet the challenge deadline.

I’m not sure I did it justice… it didn’t really turnout as I’d hoped….

Anyway, I used dies by Simon Says Stamp and Poppystamps and a Hero Arts sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Bootiful!

Hi Everyone!

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

When I saw the sketch, I thought of my Poppy Stamps Stick Frames die. It didn’t really work exactly with the sketch so I cut up the frames and arranged them separately on my card. The ghosts are from the Friendly Ghosts set by Memory Box and the sentiment is my My Favorite Things.

I embossed the background using a Creative Expressions folder.

Thank for stopping by!

Autumn Lanterns

Hi Everyone!

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

Narelle has created a fabulous sketch that was just crying out for me to dip into my patterned paper mountain again – so I did!

I used the fabulous Chinese Lantern die from Poppystamps – it actually has 3 stems but I cut off one stem so that the die cut aligned with the card elements.

The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

Thank for stopping by!
