A Blog Named Hero Mid-month Inspiration

Hello everyone,

I'm back to share my card for our mid-month inspiration over at A Blog Named Hero. We are so excited to be working with Winnie & Walter this month to create projects with Hero Arts as I'm sure you are all aware that they have some fantastic products.  

This sequin pack came with my order and they are so pretty and with this stamp set I knew this is what I wanted to do.  

I stamped and heat embossed the image on to vellum.  Then I started making my shaker by cutting out the centre with a rectangle die and then adhered the heat embossed vellum to create the window.  I then added foam tape around the edge to create the well to put the sequins. 

I then added the shaker front to an A2 card base and then cut out the Contrast die from royal blue card stock out of my stash and adhered it to the front and called this card done.  I almost added some sequins or gems to it but I thought that it was perfect just the way it was.  

Thanks for joining us for our collaboration challenge with Winnie & Walter.

AAA Cards - Challenge #94 - One Layer on a Coloured Card Base Collaboration with Less is More

Hello everyone,

We are back with another game but something a bit different. We are joining Less is More and we are very excited. 

I used a Fireworks die from Lawn Fawn and cut that on to the coloured card base. I stamped the sentiment with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and added some sparkle with a  Spectrum Noir glitter brush marker.  

We would love if you headed on over and visit both blogs and link up your cards. On our blog you have a change to win a $20 gift card to the Happy Little Stampers shop. We always enjoy seeing all the wonderful CAS cards you create.

AAA Cards - Challenge #93 - Words Take Centre Stage

Hello everyone!

AAA Cards is  are back with new challenge and We'd like to see words, sentiments or quotes as the main focus of your card.

For my card today I chose to use the YOU die and cut that out of a patterned paper that I created from my stash.  The sentiment I used was a bit too long for the space so I cut it in half, don't worry I was gentle, and the added it on two lines.

I then added a few embellishments I found at Michaels and added them because they had a purple hue to them.  Unfortunately that didn't show in the pictures.  

Our lovely sponsor for this game is Uniko and the winner has a choice of an in stock stamp set!

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you again soon!

A Blog Named Hero - Chibitronics Interactive Challenge Mid-Month Inspiration

Hello everyone,

We are already half way through the month of June with our Chibitronics Challenge at A Blog Named Hero!  It's hard to believe that my summer is finally here!

We are so excited for this months collaboration, mind you I say that every month.  And we are excited for everyone we do and this one is no exception. The more I work with these LED lights the more I fall in love with them. 

I used the Oxide distress inks in Worn Lipstick and Broken China to give it a Northern Lights type of feel to the watercolour.  I added some water splashes to the panel and wiped them up with paper towel. I then used the Hero Arts Star Confetti die and the Tim Holtz diffuser to only cut out the centre circle. 

This is how I built the light up card.  

Then I added the front panel to the base and when you press on the "S!" I took a piece of velum from my stash and added the die cut sentiment to it and added some perfect pearls water that I have mixed up on my desk.  Since I had all the lovely little stars cut out from the centre I didn't want to waste them so I added some to the front panel as well as the inside of the card.

I normally don't add anything to the inside so I did end up forgetting to take a picture of the inside of the card.  So sorry!

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you again soon!
