AAA Cards Game 182


We are back with a new game at AAA Cards. 
It's our one layer challenge and the option is to use a silhouette stamp. 


To create my card I started with a top folding card base. I masked off the portion of the card to create a strip of color. I used the Upside Down Triangles stencil and the blending brushes then stamped the twig from the Just Because set by Simon Says Stamp which is retired. 
This was a quick and simple card to make

I stamped the mice from the Ever Thine set by Colorado Craft Company, colored them and cut them out with the Coordinating dies.

Punny Valentines




Welcome to Day 5 of my series, 10 Days of Valentines Inspiration. 
I am also up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog with these handmade valentines. 


To create these I cut thick white card stock into strips of 2 1/4 x 4 1/2 and used the MISTI to stamp the images and colored them using alcohol markers. To finish them I added some Crystalline to the hearts on each of them. I also added a little shimmer with Liquid Pixie Dust.

10 Days of Valentines Inspiration - Day 4


Welcome to Day 4 of my Valentines series. 


Today's card is a quick and easy one that uses a stencil and die cut. 
I started with a white top folding card base, a white panel and some scrap paper for die cutting. I cut out the Love die three times from white card stock and once from a ink blended piece and glued them together. 
To create the background I used the Dancing Hearts stencil by A Colorful Life Designs (save 10% off your order by using my code Cealfan10) and distress inks in Picked Raspberry and Carved Pumpkin. 
On a seperate piece of card stock I blended the distress inks and then cut out the Love to add to the top.

Snow




I am the hostess over at Addicted to CAS for the new challenge and when I chose Snow as I code word I had no idea it would be snowing. I love the snow as long as I can stay inside by the fire.



You can interpret the code word in many different ways, it can be SNOWman, SNOWflakes, Snow covered trees. I hope you will play along



To create my card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel cut to the same size. I used the Snowy Trees stencil by A Colorful Life Designs. 
(you can save 10% off your order by using my code CealFan10)
For the snowy drifts I just used a piece of torn paper.

Valentines Inspiration - Day 3



Hello and welcome to Day 3 of my series 10 days of Valentines Inspiration.
If you ave been following along with my series, you may have noticed the randomness of my posts. I am just posting when I get the chance. I am of posting my DT requirements first of course and then I am incorporating some of them like today.


Today's card uses a set by Erin Lee Creative. 

To create my card I started with a top folding card base, a white panel, and a panel of sorbet cardstock.
I randomly stamped the heart from the Boho Rainbow set and them colored them using Graph-It alcohol markers. I love these markers because one end of them is a fineliner making it easy to color small images. I used the Love word die cut from the Sorbet card stock. To finish the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Striped Sentiments set and embossed it with white powder and then cut out the "you"
