prize of the winner’s choice of any in stock stamp set!

Here’s my autumnal colored card using Uniko’s English Country Garden and I LOVE Coffee (sentiment).

Do the butterflies remind you of falling leaves?

To make this card:

  1. I stamped with the small, solid butterfly stamp in fall-inspired colors.
  2. Then, I stamped over the images in gold pigment ink with the coordinating detailed butterfly stamp.
  3. Spritzed with Smooch Spritz.4. Stamped the sentiment.I hope that you are inspired to play along. Make sure you stop by AAA Cards and visit all of the design team members’ blogs.

AAA Cards Game #90 – Embossing

Hi! I’m happy to be here today for AAA Cards Game #90 – Embossing.

$15 gift certificate

We’ll pick a top winner and some runners-up.
It could be you!

I have 2 cards to share with you today.

 Here’s card #1: This is the type of Clean and Simple (CAS) card that meets of AAA Cards CAS definition.
Lots of “white space” space (any color) WITHOUT ANY texture or pattern.
I did some stenciling, creative stamping, fussy cutting, heat embossing and dry embossing to make the card.
Here’s card #2. This card is Clean and Simple, BUT it does not meet AAA Cards’ requirements for “white space” because of the all over embossing.

img_5943_edited-1If I had dry embossed only part of the card, maybe the edges of the card or simply the center panel, it would meet the AAA Cards’ CAS defintion.

img_5944_edited-1I made the center panel of this card I used some liquid masking medium through a stencil
and then did some ink blending over the masked flowers.img_5949_edited-1
 I did some fussy cutting, attached the panel to the middle of the card front and then stamped the sentiment. img_5947_edited-1
Then, I dry embossed the front of the card. I love this card, BUT it DOES NOT meet AAA’s Clean and Simple requirements.
   img_5948_edited-1
Here, once again, is my embossed card which meets AAA’s CAS definition.

I hope that you are inspired to play along. Make sure you stop by AAA Cards and visit all of the design team members’ blogs.

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
Melissa
