AAA Game 188


Happy Sunday! 
It's tine for a new game at AAA Cards.This week is one of our newer challenges. Use a one inch strip with an option to use small stamps. Also keep all elements inside the strip. 


To create my card I started with a top folding card base and a white panel. I masked off a one inch strip to ink blend and then added some small flowers from the Itty Bitty Blossoms stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. 



Because I needed a birthday card I added a birthday sentiment from the Birthday Wordfetti also by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

Picket Fence Studios April Release





It's time for another fabulous release at Picket Fence Studios.

Today I am sharing three samples with  you and will share more later in the week. 

The first sample uses a new Graduation insert for the Slim Line Die Cutting System.  To make this card I started with a black card base and a black panel. I cut a scalloped panel using the latest addition to the SLDCS the Scallop Frame, and then used the Graduation insert and cut out of the panel. To create the background for it I used a piece of glitter paper, some Black Pansy paper glaze mixed with the Enhancer and the Stars stencil.
I used the Dance Mode On set to stamp the greeting multiple times on the panel embossing it clear embossing powder and then once in silver powder to go with the background. 



My second sample uses the From My Heart 4x4 stamp set, the Slimline Cloud Coverage stencil and the Fancy Daily Sentiments stamp set along with the Coordinating die. To make this card I started with a white card base and a white panel on which I created a background using the Slimline Cloud Coverage stencil, The Life Changing Blender Brushes and distress inks in Squeezed lemonade and Wild Honey.  Next I stamped the hands in a grey ink and then colored the hearts using alcohol markers. To finish the card I added a sentiment from the Fancy Daily Sentiments set and cut it out with the coordinating die. 


My last sample for today, uses the Monarch Butterfly insert for the Slimline Die Cutting System, the Slimline Details of a Wing stencil, Snowdrop Paper Glaze, Paper Glaze Enhancer, and the Nested Rectangles SLDCS.
I started with a white card base and a panel of Bristol.  On the panel of bristol I ink blended a background using Kitsch Flamingo, Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey and Broken China distress inks and then placed my stencil over it. I mixed the paper glaze enhancer and the snowdrop paper glaze together and spread over it. I used the Monarch Butterfly insert to cut out of the panel. For the greeting I cut out the Happy Day that comes with the Nested Rectangles SLDCS out of holographic cardstock and added it to the front. To finish the card I added those tiny butterflies, also cut out of holographic paper that come with the Mushroom Field insert  for the SLDCS.

I {heart} Butterflies




It's time for a new challenge at Make The Cards Challenge, this week we have a theme for you. 
and it's one of my favorites.

I love butterflies and when I saw the challenge I could not decide what butterfly set I wanted to use. I have lots of them. I decided to go with the set by Gina K.

To create my card  started with a top folding white card base and a white anel. I created a background by ink blending some Twisted Citron and Peacock feathers distress with the  Milky Way stencil by A colorful Life Designs. 
I stamped the butterflies with embossing ink and embossed them with Egyptian Turquoise by Wow. After I embossed them I blended the same two colors over them and then cut them out with the coordinating die.

Floral images are one of my favorites, but today's card isn't a stamp at all its washi tape!
