AAA Cards Challenge #220

Ahhh...today we are playing along the edge with the sea in mind. Please come join us for the new challenge up on the AAA Cards blog. 


I started with a white panel that I masked 1.25" area that I stamped green and blue fish from Hero Arts. I then removed the mask and used my score board to dry emboss three lines to act as a boarder. I then stamped the hello and extra fish and heat embossed with clear detail powder. Die cut the fish and mounted it to the card front with foam tape. Then mounted the panel to a top, folding white card base.


Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

Folk Floral #2

 Hey there. One more quick card for the Altenew Folk Art/Hello and Simon Says Stamp Fabulous Florals challenges.


My card started with a white panel that I stamped the Bamboo Rose set in black ink. Then the greeting from The Stamp Market, Scripty Sentiments. I colored the images with alcohol markers and added a bit of white gel pen. Then I ran it through my die cut machine with the Cross Stitch Canvas die. I then fussy cut the images out and added foam tape to the back. Using black card stock, I die cut the bamboo roses out and mounted to a black panel. Then mounted the stamped image and applied it to a top folding white card base.







Folk Art Floral

 Hello. I was checking out the Altenew Inspiration challenge and thought it might be fun. They added a few more details this month with making it a "hello" card also.


My card started with a white panel that I stamped the Bamboo Rose set in black ink. Then the greeting from The Stamp Market, Scripty Sentiments. I colored the images with alcohol markers and added a bit of white gel pen. Then I ran it through my die cut machine with the Cross Stitch Canvas die. Using a bit of washi to create a little flag and the holes of the die I did a line of cross stich X's. I felt that the stitching and canvas die added to that folk art feel.






There is a Fabulous Floral challenge over on Simon Says Stamp that I will enter this card in also. I hope you enjoyed my card and will join in the fun of the challenges. Thanks, Sue.
