AAA Less than one third and summer in January

Hi there!

After a long break, we’re back with our first challenge of 2021 at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using up to one third of your card. Our optional twist this time is ‘Summer in January’.

I was a bit stumped by the optional theme at first as I didn’t really feel like creating anything summery when it’s so cold outside… but I have been fortunate to experience a few southern hemisphere summers over the years. As I was thinking of those adventures, I vividly remembered eating an ice cream with a friend in Circular Quay and decided to use that memory as my inspiration for a fun summer in January card!

I used the older Ice Cream Parade die from Simon Says Stamp for the main image and coloured the cones and ice cream sections using my distress inks.

To complete my card, I added a Memory Box sentiment.

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, Stephanie, who has some great cards on her blog.

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 18 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 18 was Gillian Vance. I don’t have any Gillian Vance products so I decided to adapt the tag made by Lindsey!

The tree die is by Savvy Stamps and I used a sentiment by Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 12 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 12 was Pinkfresh. I loved how Lindsey used leftover die cuts for some of her tags so I pulled out a bunch of my smaller dies to create my take! So many brands here! Taylored Expressions, Memory Box, Savvy Stamps and Simon Says Stamp! I loved creating this and it has given me a few card ideas!

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 6 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2020

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 6 was Stamplorations. The inspiration tags were amazing and I was particularly drawn to the tag created by Shery Russ.

I don’t have many of their products, so I used an Impression Obsession tree die, Echo Park stencil and a Simon Says Stamp sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
