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)

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?

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,

AAA Cards #214 – Moodboard & Birthday

Hello there, it’s time for another AAA Cards challenge and as we’re turning 8 we thought we’d give you a birthday moodboard to ply along with!

I was inspired by the blue/grren colours (top right) and the balloons in the moodbard. I used a favourite stamp set of mine from Avery Elle ‘Balloons’ inked up with the Caribbean Sea ink pad from Kaleidacolor.

AAA Cards #206 – Mood Board

Hello there, it’s time for the first AAA Cards challenge of 2022 and do we have a great theme for you!

I took my inspiration from the sparkly snowflake in the mood board and used a die cut snowflake panel which I added some sparkle to and popped it over a lightly sponged blue background.
