AAA Cards Challenge #222

Hey there as we cap off summer we want to share a moodboard challenge with you on the AAA Cards Challenge.


Something I have realized in the last year is even when I enter a challenge the card needs to make sense and i need to really like it. Today my card is not the first one I made for this challenge. The first one was a one layered card that was okay but I didn't love it. So I made this one.

It has more details but still very CAS. I used the Make Marks stencil from Stamplorations to anchor the bandaid box from Papertrey Ink. The greeting is also from PTI, Just Sentiments: Get Well. A few touches of glimmer, shading, shine and we are finished.

I hope you will plan to join us for this fun challenge. Sue.

AAA Cards Challenge #221

Hey there! We have a new challenge up on the AAA Cards blog today. We are working with small and few. With an optional twist of bugs.

My card is a one-layer card where I practiced ink-layering. I strated by using my Echo Park hexagon confetti die to create a stencil that I blended a light, yellow ink through. Then using the Hey Honey set from Sugar Peas set I stamped and embossed the bees. The greeting is also from the same stamp set.

I hope you will make some time to join us for this challenge. Sue

Birthday Cupcake

Hello and happy Friday to you! I was playing with the Mini Delight: Cupcake and die set from Altenew. Such a fun little cupcake with great detail. I thought the Inspiration Challenge on the Altenew blog was a great way to start,

I stamped my cupcake and die cut 5 images to layer up. Then I stamped the happy birthday from Papertrey Inks KIS Birthday set to create my 3 rectangles of color for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Die cutting a scalloped circle from vellum I mounted the cupcake to the card front. Added a small tag stamped from the Bold Sentiments set and heat embossed it with clear powder. I thought this would be a cute tag for the cupcake and tied it to the image with a bit of coral twine. I left plenty of white space for the CAS part of my design.

I will ener the card in the following challenges:
Altenew August Inspiration Challenge
Freshly Made Sketches Challenge
Simon Says Stamp Monday "Happy Birthday" and Wednesday's "Emboss It" Challenges
