AAA Cards Challenge #215

Good morning to you! It is a bright, sunny Sunday morning for me. I hope your day is off to a great start and you will carve out some time in the next few weeks to join us for a No Layer, growing challenge.


My card uses a simple technique called ink layering. I start in the background by using several light to medium tone inks to create my images from a Stampin Up Good Things Grow set. Then layer over the dark ink with the splatters and greeting to create depth without layers. The greeting set is from Simon Says Stamp, Mixed Greetings 1.



Please remember our rules. Thanks so much for stopping by, Sue

AAA Cards Challenge #214

 Happy 8th Birthday AAA Cards!

I hope you will join us for all of the fun for this 

birthday Celebration.



In true CAS form I created a no-layer card for the birthday celebration. I used the Stamp Market Birthday Wishes stamp set and some basic ink layering. For a bit of sparkle I added Ranger Stickles to the candle flames.

AAA Cards Challenge #213

 Hey there. Today on the AAA Cards Challenge blog we are playing with the small and few with an Easter/Spring twist.




I had a water color panel that was laying on my desk that I thought might make some fun Easter eggs. So after die cutting the eggs and playing with the layout I decided that that some bunny ears might be in order. Stamp set is Scrambled Eggs from Papertrey Ink.



I hope you will join us for a little Easter/Spring fun!

AAA Cards Challenge #211

Hey there! Today's new challenge on the AAA Cards blog is CAS plus spring animals. Lets think spring!


On 110 lbs white cardstock, I created a mask by die cutting an egg shape and ink blended the shape. Then using the Stampers Anonymous set Spring Shadows I stamped the bunnies in Versafine black ink. The greeting is from Papertrey Ink.


I trimmed the panel and mounted it to a top folding white card with foam tape.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will join us for a little spring CAS inspiration.

Time Out Challenge #209: Cute

 Hey there. I am thrilled to be guest designing on the Time Out Challenge. The challenge is "cute". I will honestly let you know cute is not usually in my wheelhouse but I love a great challenge and Time Out has some of the best.





This no-layer card was quick to put together. I used the Colorado Craft Company, Frankly Mini set to stamp Frank and the greeting in Gina K amalgam ink. Then colored him with alcohol markers.


I thought that it would be fun to create a "Francine" 


Thanks so much for stopping by, Sue.

Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
