AAA Cards #79

Hi All

I hope you are having a fun weekend.

We have a new challenge for you at AAA Cards.

We would like to see 'Clean and Simple' cards that have some silver on them.

Here is what I created:

A square card with that much loved snowflake stamp from Visible Images. I am forever using it and this time stamped it in delicata sliver ink. I then die cut a 'Joy' sentiment a number of times with the top layer being cut out of silver glitter card. This is one of my fav Christmas cards this year.

The layout is based on the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches using my snowflake as the circle.

Our sponsors for this challenge are Happy Little Stampers. The winner will get a $20 gift voucher to spend in their store.


Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Marianne. Her blog is a delight to visit-check it out here

Our DT and Marianne have made some amazing cards for you. Pop on over to AAA Cards and you will be inspired I guarantee.

Time for you to take a little break and craft with us....make those card 'Clean and Simple'!!

Purple and Silver

Hi All

When I saw the photo this week at Just Us Girls I couldn't resist joining in....I mean purple and silver was crying out my name!

A super CAS card:

I used delicata ink for the silver and used the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch for my layout. Linen embossed the card, added a few silver and purple gems and rounded the corners and finished!

I will also enter this into the 'congratulations' challenge at Addicted to CAS where they have a 4th year Birthday party going on. Congrats to Kylie and the team there.

Enjoy your week x

A CAS and soft Christmas.

Hello my crafty friends,

I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend.

I got some crafting in yesterday and made this card inspired by a few challenges:

This gorgeous Nativity die was a present form the lovely Patti. I saw her use this on her blog and mentioned how much I liked it. The next thing I know it arrives in the post for me. A huge thank you Patti.

I was inspired by the 'soft' challenge at CASology this week. I wanted to use plenty of soft texture so used a base embossed card, a fabric embossed panel of cream card and then the die is actually cut from fabric. I also used the soft colour combo of white and cream-one of my favourite colour combos from CAS cards.

My layout was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend x

Time Out #71

Hi There,

Happy Thanksgiving to all our crafty American friends-have a wonderful day.

Time for our theme challenge at Time Out .

Our theme is:

Christmas with the optional twist of using glitter and/or shimmer.

I went with the twist and included both glitter and shimmer:

The glitter is sticky tape and the bauble is die cut from a sheet of brusho card I made a while ago. I used Christmas-purple, red and gold-brusho colours and added some gold shimmer to it. The design of this card was inspired by Sarah of Funky Fossil Designs

Our sponsors for this challenge are Uniko. The sentiment I have used here is a Uniko stamp. I simply stamped it with gold delicata ink (love that ink!)

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Valentyna. I am sure many of you already know her wonderful and inspiring blog. If not take a look here and prepared to be amazed!

Our DT and Valentyna have made some wonderful cards for you-take a look here.

Time for you to take some TIME OUT and gey inky.

Enjoy x

I am going to enter this into the challenges

Embrace Your Creativity

Hi There,

I don't normally post 2 cards in one day but I wanted to share this with you.

My card today was has a sentiment I really love and I think is perfect for all of us!

I was thinking this week about the 'embrace' challenge at CASology and was going to make a 'hugs' card. However I was looking through my stamps and came across this sentiment from The Ton and suddenly a new idea popped into my about making a card about 'embracing our creativity'. This is what I came up with using the colours from Colour Throwdown-orange, red and green- I had been looking as the colour combo and really liked it although thought it was a real challenge but ended up working just right for this card.

Have a fun week and remember to use as much creativity as you can!
