Technique – die cutting

Featuring die cutting

Deck the halls… continued!

Hi there!

It’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using the edge of your card; our optional twist is, rather intriguingly, time travel! Our sponsor is Stamplorations.

Life is crazy right now so I made a simple festive card using Penny Black stamps and my beloved Twinkling H2O paints.

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

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

Non-traditional Christmas wishes

Hi Everyone!

November has been a super-busy month for me and I can scarcely believe it’s December. I’m so grateful that I was able to grab some time in the craft room today! I decided to play along this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge but when I was halfway through my creation, I realised that I had used a couple of the colours from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge so I added some silver and pink snowflakes to cover all the colours in the combo (turquoise, green, pink and silver)!

I used an older stamp and die set by Marianne Designs and stamped and embossed the large Christmas sentiment with sparkle embossing powder before cutting it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the ‘wishes’ in silver ink and adhered the die cut on top of a little silver cotton before adding a few die cut snowflakes.

Thank for stopping by!

Winter scene

Hi there!

It’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards!  This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card in ‘minutes’; our optional twist is ink blending. Our sponsor is Uniko.

I confess I am not a fan of making cards against the clock. I find joy in the creative process…. all the other parts of my life seem to involve rushing and so I relish my peaceful crafty time.

I used a MFT stencil and regular distress ink to create the ink blended circle. Then I simply adhered a die cut from an older set by Create A Smile stamps to complete my card.

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

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!
