AAA Cards Game #115 – Inspired by Nature

Hi! I’m back with a fun Clean and Simple Card today for AAA Cards Game #115.

 

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 nature 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 for this game is the fabulous Kylie of Happy Little Stampers.

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

Here’s my nearly one-layer card using HLS’ Doodled Flowers, Butterfly Birthday and a coordinating die.

 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 my teammate’s Clean and Simple Greeting Cards.

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
Melissa

AAA Cards Game #114: Tic Tac Toe

Hi! I’m back with a fun new challenge for AAA Cards.

 

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

  1. As always, we’re looking for Clean and Simple (CAS) greeting cards, BUT for this game please make sure to complete one line of the Tic Tac Toe board above.
  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 in any way at all.

STAMPlorations™ Blog

Here’s my one-layer card. I used GOLD, ONE-LAYER and MASKING. (I also used a colored cardbase and blue.) Anyhow, besides “flowers” and “watercolors” I think that I filled every other square. Which, of course, was not the challenge, but it was fun to see how many of the boxes I could tic!

I’ve been trying to NOT use flowers on ALL of my cards. I seem to use flowers and butterflies a lot.I’d like to have some masculine cards in my stash. What do you think? I really wanted to fit some water-colored flowers on in the background before stenciling, but I resisted. 🙂

I used STAMPlorations Chevron Crazy – ARTplorations Stencil and a die from the For the Birds die set.

I also used the “Be Strong” stamp from the Typografia in Faith collection.

 

Be sure to stop by the AAA Cards challenge blog to enjoy my teammate’s super Clean and Simple Cards.

I hope that you enjoyed visiting today and I hope that you’ve been inspired to play along.

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
Melissa
