AAA Cards Game #110 – Ombre

Hi! I’m back with a fun Clean and Simple Card today for AAA Cards Game #110.

Special tips for competing (and being eligible to win) in this game:

  1. As always, we’re looking for Clean and Simple (CAS) cards, BUT for this game please feature an Ombre theme as the main and focal point.
  2. As always and for all of our games our definition of  Clean and Simple means that white space should not be patterned, embossed or textured.

Our sponsor, and one of our Guest Designer’s, for this game is the fabulous Kylie of Happy Little Stampers.

Kylie is offering a $20 gift certificate to the winner of this challenge.

Our other super Guest Designer is Wei of craftworldofwei.

Here’s my one-layer card using HLS’ Doodled Flowers and Whimsical Friends.

Don’t the 3 birds fit nicely on that fun elephant’s back?

 I am always happy to have visitors and love reading your comments. I hope that you’ve been inspired to play along.

Be sure to stop by the AAA Cards challenge blog to enjoy Kylie’s, Wei’s and my teammate’s Clean and Simple Greeting Cards.

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
Melissa

Happy Little Stampers April 2017 Mixed Media Challenge – Sprays

Hi! I’m very happy to be here with you today with a card for Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge.

Our  challenge:

Here’s my card. Thinking Spring!
img_5891_edited-1
 img_5890_edited-1
I started this card by creating a smooshed blue and yellow Brusho Crystal Color background panel.  Next, I used a butterfly die cut as a stencil and sponged on blue ink through the negative spaces. I stamped with the large script background stamp from Thinking of You stamp and the Happy Birthday in blue ink. I traced the large sentiment with white gel pen. img_5887_edited-1I started the panel with the Brushos last summer at the first HLS retreat in Swindon. I finished the card back at my house in Germany. I sprayed the panel with homemade blue alcohol ink and added blue gel pen around the stenciled butterfly.img_5888_edited-1

So!  Are you excited to join in with our Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media challenge?! I hope so. Make sure that you check out my teammates’ super creations at the challenge blog.
