Happy Heart Day to you!

Hi there!

Happy Heart Day friends!

Today I’m playing along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge where the combo is lavender, green, and grey.

I used a Technique Tuesday edger die and some of my patterned paper mountain. You know I have a bit of a love-hate relationship when it comes to ‘lavender’ in CTD challenges – I can never find the ‘perfect’ shade… and now that I’ve photographed this card, the lavender looks more like dusky pink… Argh!

The sentiment is by Reverse Confetti!

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!

AAA Cards One Third challenge with hearts twist

Hi there!

It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using up to one third of your card base only; our optional twist is ‘hearts’! Our sponsor is Stamplorations.

I adhered the die cut on my card base and cut it a second time from a panel I’d created using Distress Oxide ink. I then added my favourite valentine’s sentiment (this one is by Reverse Confetti) 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, Mugdha, who has some lovely inspiration on her blog!

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 5 – 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 5 was Reverse Confetti. I absolutely LOVE Jen Mitchell’s inspiration and happily pulled out my Reverse Confetti Triangle Trees and got to work! I used some Cosmic Shimmer sparkle paste, a My Favorite Things stencil and some patterned paper for the background.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bali Corner

Hi there!

It’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards! The theme for this fortnight is ‘one corner’ with the optional twist of flowers. Our sponsor is Uniko.

What a fun challenge… I love using flowers on my cards, especially at this time of year! After spending some time going through my wood mounted stamps, I decided to use a die! The Memory Box Bali corner die seemed made for this challenge – and I had a lot of fun colouring it in the current CAS Colours and Sketches colour combo (coral, grape and meadow)!

I added a sentiment from Reverse Confetti and a few mini gems to finish off my card.

My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined by the talented Maja – she has some amazing cards on her blog!

Thanks for stopping by!

Butterfly birthday wishes

Hi everyone!

Today I’m sharing the super quick card I made for the current Freshly Made sketches challenge.

I created a stencil using a Reverse Confetti die and then blended some Distress Oxide ink over the base card.

I then used Impression Obsession butterfly dies to cut a background panel that I created sometime ago using more Distress Oxide inks.

To finish off my quick card, I stamped a Clearly Besotted sentiment – and resisted the urge to cover the card in bling!!

I’m also entering this into the current Time Out challenge where the theme is ‘birthday wishes’.

Thanks for stopping by!
