AAA Cards Game #106 – Quote

I’m very happy to be back again with AAA Cards Game #106 – Quote.

AAA Cards is a challenge blog for Clean and Simple (CAS) Cards. Unless otherwise stated in the blog post for a particular challenge only players who submit cards will be eligible to be a winner.

Our super sponsor for this game is:

Happy Little Stampers

Here’s my card.

After ink-blending a bit of heavy weight white card stock, I used a “never been used” word die before. I like it a lot!

I also used some much loved snowflake dies too.

I used some Smooch Spritz to add a little depth and sparkle to the “peace, love, joy.”

This sentiment die expresses my heart’s desire for myself and for my family and friends as we mark the beginning of a new year.

I hope that you are inspired to play along.

Make sure you stop by AAA Cards to visit all of the design team members’ blogs.

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
Melissa

I ended up making 4 of these for a private card challenge that I belong to.

I used CUTplorations word dies “happy” and “BIRTHDAY” to die cut the words out of a panel I’d watercolored.

Here’s the card I made with the watercolored panel:

Coffee Loving Cardmakers: January Guest Designer – January 20, 2017

 

https://i0.wp.com/coffeelovingcardmakers.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/GuestDesignerSlider.jpgHi! I’m very happy to be with you today with a third post as the January Guest Designer for Coffee Loving Cardmakers! I have an unusual sort of card to share with you today.

I combined 4 of my favorite products, from different companies, and also altered the stamped image of one of my favorite stamps.

Here’s my card, using, at least in part, one of my favorite rubber stamps.

This stamp set is one of my first, and favorite, rubber stamp sets. It is Stampin’ Up’s (discontinued) Tea Shoppe.

You can see that I used only the outline of the large cup.

I also used these lovely snowflake dies.

I used the CUTplorations “hugs” word die for the sentiment.
