AAA Cards #215 – No Layers + Plant/Grow/Farm

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

Lots of ideas popped into my mind with this theme that I made 4 cards before I was happy with my idea. I just got a new stamp set from Stampin Up ‘Home & Garden’ that I decided to stamp a few garden tools and then do a bit of masking before I sponged the background.

This will be a good card for one of the men in my life,

This new challenge is all about F is for F Words.

I have the perfect stamp set for this challenge from The Ink Road “Fck-A-Doodle-Do” which I paired with the rooster from KatzelKraft “La ferme des animaux” which I coloured with my Stampin Blends and added to a lightly sponged background.

Fusion: At the Movies

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

For my card I was inspired by the sketch (flipped vertically) and the red couch in the photo. I used a new Stampin Up stamp set called ‘Bottled Happieness’. I inked it up with SU inks in Sweet Sorbet, Parakett Party, Orchid Oasis and Pumpkin Pie. I then added a die cut film strip over the top with a sentiment from Uniquely Creative.

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

These colours are so pretty together and I knew that they would look fabulous on the Stampin Up ‘Bottled Happiness’ stamp set. I inked up the slim bottle with the Rich Razzleberry and then punched it out with the matching punch. The onto the flowers – which is a 2 step stamp – 1st the leaves in Mint Macaron and then the flowers in Blushing Bride. I fussy cut out the flowers and popped them and the bottle up with dimensions.

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

I was inspired by the butterflies and colours in the photo this challenge. I stamped the large butterfly from the Ton, heat embossed in gold and then water coloured with my Altenew water colour pans. I wanted the butterfly to be the hero , so I left the sentiment off, fussy cut it out and added it to a acetate card base.

Fusion: Tulips

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

I decided to fuse the sketch and photo for my card. I found a sweet digital stamp from Star JamLines that had a bunny holding some tulips (not sure if you can see in the photo but there is a bunny pushing a wheelbarrow with tulips in it). I printed and coloured the image with my Stampin Blends. I die cut with an oval die and added to a card base with a bit of black and white striped DSP.
