AAA Cards #221 – Small & Few opt (lady) bugs

Hello there, it’s time for another challenge over at AAA Cards and do we have a great theme for you!

I don’t have any lady bug stamps but had some small dragonflies in a Penny Black set ‘T for Transparent’ that I knew would be perfect for this challenge. I stamped a number around my sentiment as if they were flying along. I coloured them with some very pale blue and added a little bit of clear glitter to them (a bit hard to see in the pics but IRL they are very pretty)

Come join in the fun; we’d love to see how you were inspired. Check out the projects that the other artists at AAA Cards have created, take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post. We’d love to have you join us.  You have until Saturday, 20th August to link up your project.

Fusion: Wine & Cheese

Hello there, it’s time for another Fusion Challenge and do we have a great sketch and inspirational photo for you!

I decided to follow the sketch and be inspired by the wine glass and bottle in the photo. I used a stamp set from PTI called ‘Uncorked’.

I kept the rest of my card CAS as I wanted the focus on the bottle and glasses.

Come join in the fun and make a card based on the sketch, inspiration photo or fuse them together and play with both!

Just Add Ink #615 – Just Add Inspiration

Hello there, it’s time for another Just Add Ink Challenge and do we have a great theme for you!

I was inspired by the colours, the pebble, the wood elements and the plants for my card. I used a stamp and dei set from the My Monthly Hero Kit January 2022.

See how I made the pebble stepping stones look like the wooden plank pathway?

AAA Cards #220 – Along the Edge opt In the Sea

Hello there, it’s time for another challenge over at AAA Cards and do we have a great theme for you!

I had to do a search through all my stamp sets to find one that suited the optional theme and found a set sitting in my critters section from Uniquely Creative ‘Under the sea’. I inked up some of the seaweed along the bottom edge and coloured them with my Stampin Blends. I then stamped the cute seal and coloured him as well. I fussy cut the seal out and added him ontop of the seaweed with some dimensionals.

Isn’t he cute?

Christmas Card Making in July

Today is a cold and wintery day here in Melbourne, which encouraged me to make Christmas cards. I played along with four different challenges for my four cards.

First up is a card for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #214 – C is for Christmas.

For my card I used two stamps sets – ‘Bright & Breezy’ from Stamps by Chloe and ‘N-7874’ from The Cat’s Pajamas. I stamped and coloured the underwear with my Stampin Blends then cut them out and added to a simple card base with my sentiment.

Next up is a card for Less is More #469 – Traditional Chrismas.

I made an OLC using the beautiful tree from the Altenew ‘ Sketched Evergreen’ inked up with three different greens.

My third card is for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown #27 – Christmas Floral.

I used a Stampin Up die set ‘Poinsettia Petals’ with a sentiment from ‘Leaves of Holly’.

My last card is for the ABC Christmas Challenge – N is for New or O is for Old.

I used a new stamp set from Stampin Up called ‘Mistletoe Magic’. I embossed a background panel with a Merry Christmas script, then stamped, coloured and die cut three mistletoe images and popped them over the sentiment strip.

Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by for a look. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
