The Peppermint Zone

Hello friends!

I’m playing along with the latest Color Throwdown challenge where the combo is navy, aqua and coral.

I decided that it was time I broke out the fabulous Winnie & Walter Peppermint Zone background die that I have coveted since it was released in December. I was lucky to snap it up in March!

I adhered the die cut to a piece of glitter card using some foam tape. Hopefully the tape is strong enough to hold it in place! Then I turned my attention to the coral accents and created a background panel using Abandoned Coral distress oxide ink.

I think the background die itself is absolutely eye-catching and really didn’t want to cover any of it! In the end, I chose a classic word die, also by Winnie & Walter, which I offset slightly, and a few stars.

Hi shaker card

Hi there!

It’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards! We have a CAS sketch for you this fortnight and the optional twist is ‘shaker’. Our sponsor is Winnie & Walter.

I LOVE Winnie & Walter products, especially their dies, and I recently placed an order for a stack of their dies – so I knew I wanted to use one of them for my take on the challenge.

I chose the ‘hi’ die as it would be big enough to create a nice shaker. I cut it from some cardstock and got to work on my shaker element. Sounds simple doesn’t it? Well, EVERYTHING went wrong. First I forgot the acetate before adding the foam. Then I got glue all over my acetate on the next attempt. Can’t remember what went wrong with attempt no 3 but I do know this card finally came together on the fourth try. Seriously, talk about making a mountain out of a mole hill.

I created a shaker mix using a few packets of sequins that I’d had in my collection for a while plus some seed beads. Really pleased with how my mix worked with the colours of 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 Raga from Perky Hobby – do drop by and take a look at her lovely work!

Festive thanks

Hello everyone!

I’m not quite ready to put away my festive supplies! I love using them for thank you cards that I hand out after Christmas.

This is the card I made for my lovely mum using Simon Says Stamp Winter Flowers stamps and matching dies. I embossed, cut and coloured all the images with my Twinkling H2Os and then created a see-through card front using Jennifer McGuire’s press n seal technique. Time consuming but totally worth it! The sentiment is by Winnie and Walter.

I’m entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge (something new – the matching dies were a new purchase).

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 11 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2018

Hi everyone!

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

The sponsor for Day 11 was Winnie & Walter. I have a couple of older festive sets and decided on a set which I don’t think I’ve used before – Season’s Tweetings – for my take on Tracey’s sweet tag.

I created a blended background with same distress inks that Laura used (Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans and Salty Ocean) and then trimmed it down before adhering the die cut window to the base.

I loved the colour palette that Tracey used – especially for her penguin’s scarf so I followed suit! I can honestly say that I think I used a Twinkling H2O paint that I have never used before – any you all know how much I love and use them! I heat embossed some stars on the tag base before creating the soft background with Distress inks.

Thanks for stopping by!

Geometric circles

Hello everyone!

My name is Lucie and I may have a problem with background dies! Love them all! But they have a higher price point so I often dither before committing….

But as soon as I saw this fabulous background die from Revere Confetti, I knew I had to have it and snapped it up as soon as it was in store! Isn’t it fabulous?

I have so many ideas for it, but today I simply popped the die cut on top of one of my rejected distress oxide backgrounds. I’m so glad I save them like the guru Tim Holtz suggests – what might not be right immediately is often just right at a later date!

The sentiment die is from Winnie & Walter.

Heart shaker card

Happy Friyay everyone!

I just saw the palette for the Winnie & Walter colour challenge and decided to play along at the last minute.

For the base, I used a couple of Winnie & Walter stamp sets and once I’d embossed the sentiments/hearts, I added a soft layer of Chipped Sapphire distress ink.

I then got to work on my focal point – I can’t believe I have never got round to using this sweet heart Winnie & Walter die that I bought a few years ago! It’s so perfect for inlaid die cutting AND a shaker! I created some blended background with regular distress ink and cut them using the die before inlaying the little pieces. I added some sequins and seed beads before adhering the heart to the base with funky foam.

Thanks for stopping by!
